    Parents in Rocklin, California were horrified to discover that a teacher led a kindergarten-age classroom discussion on transgenderism that included introducing a five-year-old who was transitioning from male to female. Children at Rocklin Academy were subjected to readings from two storybooks about transgenderism. At some point, the teacher introduced a classmate who changed clothes for the big gender reveal. "These parents feel betrayed by the school district that they were not notified," Capitol Resource Institute's Karen England told CBS News in Sacramento. "The kindergartners came home very confused, about whether or not you can pick your gender, whether or not...

    Outkick the Coverage ^ | August 22, 2017 | Clay Travis
    UPDATE: ESPN ISSUES OFFICIAL STATEMENT: “We collectively made the decision with Robert to switch games as the tragic events in Charlottesville were unfolding, simply because of the coincidence of his name. In that moment it felt right to all parties. It’s a shame that this is even a topic of conversation and we regret that who calls play by play for a football game has become an issue.” In a story that seems made for The Onion, but is actually true, according to multiple Outkick fans inside ESPN MSESPN decided to pull an Asian college football announcer named Robert Lee...

    Washington Post ^ | August 17, 2017 | Maura Judkis
    A customer dining at D.C.’s Oceanaire restaurant noticed an unusual line at the bottom of his receipt: “Due to the rising costs of doing business in this location, including costs associated with higher minimum wage rates, a 3% surcharge has been added to your total bill.” Brian, who asked The Washington Post to use only his first name to avoid conflicts with his employer, was surprised to see the additional charge. He snapped a picture and sent it to local blog Popville, which posted a picture of his receipt. The outraged comments started rolling in. “Just raise prices if you...
  • Should The Democratic Party Be Abolished As A Symbol Of Oppression?

    Manhattan Contrarian ^ | 20 Aug, 2017 | Francis Menton
    Following the events in Charlottesville last weekend, we are now engaged in a national orgy of banishing whatever can be identified as "symbols of oppression" from the past. Everywhere they exist, statues of Confederate figures are being removed from public spaces. In Congress, Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi has called for removal of a dozen or so statues of Confederate figures from the U.S. Capitol. (Funny, but there didn't seem to be any problem with them when she was Speaker not so long ago.) Here in New York, we don't have much in the way of symbols honoring Confederate figures, but...

    Politico ^ | August 22nd, 2017 | By ALEX ISENSTADT
    PHOENIX — President Donald Trump faces a decision on Tuesday evening with profound implications for his already strained relationship with the GOP: whether to attack a vulnerable Republican senator on his home turf. White House officials won’t say exactly what’s on Trump’s agenda when he holds a campaign-style rally here. But it's widely expected he will go after GOP Sen. Jeff Flake, a loud critic of the president who recently published an anti-Trump manifesto, “Conscience of a Conservative.” Whatever he says about Flake, the president is clearly determined to send a message. State Treasurer Jeff DeWit, who is weighing a...

    The area I grew up in, leafy Wimbledon in south-west London, is bordered by memorials to two towering historical figures. One side dedicates its streets and walls to the legacy of the abolitionist William Wilberforce: the remnants of a house where he lounged with his friends, and the mounting block he used to get on his horse to ride to the Houses of Parliament, still stand.

    There are streets, schools and parks across the country named after a violent racist who urged the KKK to murder civil rights activists and claimed that racial integration was a Jewish conspiracy. There’s a boulevard in Brooklyn named after a racist who admired Hitler and boasted of being the first fascist. Harvard has a prominent institute named after a bigot who defended Nazi bigotry. New York City, Washington D.C. and Los Angeles all have streets named after a supremacist and nationalist who palled around with Nazis. New York City has a statue of him. Washington D.C. has an art tribute...

    One of the country’s most well-known tributes to the Revolutionary era is on the brink of financial ruin. Mitchell Reiss, the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation’s president and CEO, released an open letter at the end of June revealing that Colonial Williamsburg, which markets itself as “the world’s largest living history museum,” is in dire financial straits.

    Waynee Dupree ^ | Wayne Dupree
    This is why the Dallas Cowboys are my team; I love the attitude. Sure some grown immature snowflakes will call out Jerry Jones, but it’s his team, and he loves America. Just as Jones sets requirements for his team, he expects commitment and loyalty. If he’s paying the salaries, why can’t he impose these rules on his team? If you have a problem with this, then you don’t want to be a Dallas Cowboy, or you should explore joining another team where they let you disrespect the American flag, but that won’t happen in Dallas.

    The University of Michigan’s Delta Sigma Phi chapter announced Saturday that it canceled a “Nile”-themed party after the president of the school’s Egyptian Student Association criticized the fraternity on social media. The party urged students to “honor our Egyptian roots and join us on the night of September 1st to celebrate our newly built pyramid” and to “come to [the party] as a mummy, Cleopatra or King Tut,” according to a now-deleted Facebook event page, The Michigan Daily reported.

    The Daily Caller ^ | 08/22/17 | David Hookstead
    Several Cleveland Browns players made the decision to kneel during the national anthem. Twelve players from the organization kneeled and prayed during the anthem Monday night against the New York Giants, according to ESPN. Safety Jabrill Peppers told the media, “There’s a lot of racial and social injustices in the world that are going on right now. We just decided to take a knee and pray for the people who have been affected and just pray for the world in general.” Protesting is the hottest thing in the streets these days, but perhaps the Browns players should spend a shade more...

    Baylor University football players took part in gang rape attacks because they thought that if 'you were one person's woman, you were everybody's', one of their victims has claimed.  The toxic culture at the largest Baptist university in the world bred dozens of 'predators' who knew how to target women when they were most vulnerable. A devastating new account of the sex scandal that shamed the Texas college says that there was an 'epidemic' of sexual assault that lasted for years.  'Violated: Exposing Rape at Baylor University Amid College Football's Sexual Assault Crisis' lays out in unprecedented detail the story...
