  • University of Virginia stonewalls conservative club for restricting membership to conservatives

    The University of Virginia says it will not recognize a conservative club because the organization limits its membership to those who affirm conservative principles. In a letter on Friday, lawyers for Young America’s Foundation said the university’s policy is both “unconstitutional” and a violation of Virginia state law. “A pro-choice club may deny leadership positions to pro-life students, and a gun control group may determine that it does not wish to extend membership to NRA members,” Casey Mattox, senior counsel at the Alliance Defending Freedom, wrote in the letter. “Yet, by the terms of this policy — and its application...

    President Trump hosted the National Collegiate Athletic Association champion sports teams at the White House on Friday - or most of them, that is. The event began with the student athletes meeting President Trump in the Rose Garden for photos. "A lot of great athletes," Trump told the press pool. The Marine Corps Marching Band played nearby from the South Lawn, as President Trump joked with athletes, meeting them in groups. When talking with the Ohio State men's volleyball team, the president was seen jokingly smacking a volleyball in the air. While interacting with the West Virginia rifle team in...

    On Nov. 9, Rolling Stone magazine celebrated the 50th anniversary of its first issue, published in the hippie Haight-Ashbury neighborhood in San Francisco. True to form, liberal journalists -- who claim to care so deeply about the menace of fake reporting -- honored founder Jann Wenner and dismissed as insignificant the magazine's 2015 "A Rape on Campus" story scandal. On Nov. 5, CBS "Sunday Morning" host Jane Pauley gushed over Wenner as "the rock star of publishing." Minutes later, she upgraded the flattery by calling him "perhaps the most influential rock star on the planet." Out of nearly nine minutes,...

    Students will pair students of different political persuasions for lunch or coffee dates for a University of Virginia student initiative announced Friday. . . . While students split on whether the school should facilitate compulsory white supremacy training, UVA’s student council unanimously endorsed a list of demands including a call for the school to institute a black student quota and install a plaque on a statue of Thomas Jefferson detailing the monument’s history as “an emblem of white supremacy.”

    An estimated 100 protesters littered the grounds surrounding the Thomas Jefferson statue at the University of Virginia (UVA) Tuesday night to show strength behind a list of demands the Black Student Alliance gave to the university in August in response to the now infamous “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville. More than 100 students, residents, and faculty members joined the protest, chanting, “No Trump, no KKK, no fascist UVA!” as they circled the statue which they adorned with a sign, reading, “TJ is a racist and rapist” and covered the university founder’s statue with a black tarp. “Black Lives Matter”...

    snip - Adam Kimelman, a third-year College student and chair of the College Republicans, said he supported the sentiment of the demands, but took issue with some aspects of the list. “I agree we should have more black students here, but we can’t put a quota on it, that’s literally unconstitutional,” he said. He also took issue with calling Thomas Jefferson a symbol of white supremacy, and claimed the University wouldn’t take some of the demands seriously. “We could definitely use an amendment to make these things more reasonable,” Kimelman said. One of the demands on the list specifically references...
  • Thomas Jefferson, ‘emblem of white supremacy,’ targeted in UVa. students’ list of demands

    University of Virginia students have issued a list of demands regarding a statue of Thomas Jefferson on campus because his visage allegedly serves as “an emblem of white supremacy.” President Trump asked reporters on Aug. 15 if violence in Charlottesville over historical monuments would inspire campaigns against the nation’s third present. A coalition of minority student groups answered his call less than one week later with a list of demands for administrators. The Minority Rights Coalition hosted a “March to Reclaim Our Grounds” on Aug. 21, at which point they revealed a ten-point ultimatum obtained by Campus Reform on Wednesday....
  • Twitter Rips Into ESPN After Decision to Move Robert Lee From Announcing Game

    Twitter had a field day after news broke Tuesday that ESPN removed an announcer named Robert Lee from broadcasting an upcoming Virginia Cavalier football game because of the similarity of his name to Confederate General Robert E. Lee. The story was broken by Outkick The Coverage's Clay Travis, who has coined the term "MSESPN" to suggest ESPN has a liberal slant, combining the news network and MSNBC. ESPN ultimately confirmed the seemingly unbelievable story, saying it collectively made the decision along with Lee as the tragedy in Charlottesville, Va. unfolded,

    I waited to write about this story because at first it seemed too insane to be true, but alas, it's come to this. ESPN pulled Asian-American sports announcer Robert Lee from this weekend's University of Virginia vs. William & Mary football game because they were afraid he might offend people. Why? His name is too similar to Confederate General Robert E. Lee. For the record, Robert E. Lee is white and has been dead for over 100 years. Fox Sports radio host Clay Travis broke the story earlier tonight. From Outkick The Coverage:  In a story that seems made for The Onion,...

    Apparently, even being Asian doesn’t mean people won’t take you for being a white nationalist. According to the popular college-football blog Outkick the Coverage, ESPN pulled an Asian announcer from calling a University of Virginia football game. The announcer’s name is Robert Lee. “Did I mention that Robert Lee is Asian?” blogger Clay Travis asked rhetorically in a post that poured scorn over the popular sports network for political correctness, calling it “MSESPN.” Citing “multiple Outkick fans inside ESPN,” Mr. Travis said Mr. Lee was pulled from the Cavaliers Sept. 2 game in Charlottesville against William and Mary “because they...

    Dozens of white nationalists marched through the University of Virginia campus on Friday night carrying torches while chanting “You will not replace us.” The demonstrators, who also yelled "blood and soil", a phrase tied to Nazi ideology, made their way through the Charlottesville campus before encircling a group of counterprotesters gathered around a statue of Thomas Jefferson. A fight broke out, and some of the white nationalists swung their tiki torches at people, according to the Daily Progress. Protesters wielding torches march through campus chanted "You will not replace us". Members of both sides were reportedly hit with pepper spray,...

    It's settled, but far from over. The University of Virginia fraternity that was slimed and defamed by sicko fabulist Sabrina Erdely will receive a $1.65 million payment, the fraternity announced this week. Erdely's manufactured tale of gang rape by Phi Kappa Psi members, spun through a manipulated UVA student dubbed "Jackie" and published by left-wing Rolling Stone magazine, combusted spectacularly after scrutiny by independent journalists in late 2014. The latest payout over the fictional hit piece comes in the wake of another defamation lawsuit by UVA dean of students Nicole Eramo. She won a $3 million jury verdict last year...

    – University of Virginia student Otto Warmbier has been medically evacuated from North Korea in a coma after being detained for 17 months, his parents told The Washington Post on Tuesday. Warmbier, 22, is due to arrive home in Cincinnati on Tuesday evening, having been evacuated through a U.S. military base in Sapporo, Japan. Warmbier has been in a coma for more than a year, since shortly after his last public appearance during his trial in Pyongyang in March 2016. His release was announced Tuesday morning in Washington by Secretary of State Rex Tillerson. Tillerson did not discuss Warmbier’s medical...
