The students from Parkland Middle School took advantage of the National Walkout Day today to sneak off and do their own thing. Though a staff member was posted at the front...

    ROCKLIN, California, March 26, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – A 17-year-old California student is planning a pro-life “walkout” to take place at schools across the country next month in imitation of the recent ‘gun-violence’ protests. The aim of the event is to witness to the millions of lives destroyed by abortion. The event will also test if there’s a double standard from school administration when it comes to allowing students to protest against destroyers of life and the tools they use.

    SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — Last week they protested gun violence. This week, Rocklin High School students are using social media to organize a pro-life walkout using the hashtag #life. “To honor all the lives of aborted babies pretty much. All the millions of aborted babies every year,” said organizer Brandon Gillespie. He says his history teacher inspired the idea. As thousands of students across the country walked out of class demanding strict gun laws, in honor of the Parkland shooting victims, Benzel was placed on paid administrative leave when she asked students to consider whether there’s a double standard in the...

    Julianne Benzel, a teacher at Rocklin High School, asked students if school administrators would permit an anti-abortion protest, gets placed on administrative leave as a consequence A California high school teacher has been placed on leave after she wondered if her school would permit an organized walkout to protest abortion. According to CBS Sacramento, Rocklin High School’s Julianne Benzel said all she did was have a conversation with her class last Thursday and Friday about the “politics of protest” — a lesson ahead of yesterday’s school walkouts. However, this seems to have angered some students and their parents. Benzel said...

And today I received the call. So I am aghast,” Benzel told CBS Sacramento. Benzel said that she questioned her students as to the appropriateness of schools sanctioning a protest against gun violence and whether the school administration was willing to allow protests...

In at least one disturbing incident, it was reported that the school physically blocked the exits to prevent students from demonstrating,” Cuomo said in a letter to state Education Commissioner Mary Ellen Elia.</p>

    Chicago, IL – A crowd of students swarmed a south side strip mall during Wednesday’s National Walkout Day demonstration, leaving a trail of destruction in their wake. “They pretty much trashed this whole area,” GameStop manager Robert Owens told Blue Lives Matter on Thursday. Not all of the protests were peaceful. On Chicago’s South Side, Simeon Career Academy students descended on businesses situated in a strip mall behind the school, and began harassing customers and employees. “Things started out cool,” a Potbelly Sandwich Shop manager, who did not want to be further identified, told Blue Lives Matter. “But then some...

    Yesterday we had students walking out of school all over the country to protest gun violence. Now, in Baltimore and some other cities, there may be a different type of walkout. Teachers are objecting to the idea of any of them being trained and armed, so much so that if there are any armed teachers in the school they will walk out as well. (CBS Baltimore)

    The Federalist ^ | March 14, 2018 | Robert Tracinski
    The National School Walkout perfectly sums up politics in 2018. It makes total sense to draft school kids as political activists, because all of our politics is already just an inflated version of middle school. The most striking fact about this walkout is how it became effectively a school sponsored political event in many areas. Actually, that’s only the second most striking fact. The most striking fact is that it was the brainchild of the Women’s March, an organization founded and still run by fangirls of a rabid anti-Semite. So naturally their initiatives are embraced by the nation’s teachers. I’m...

    Pence used the opportunity to take aim at the Left and the rampant, un-American totalitarianism of the nation's institutions of higher education A few dozen virtue-signaling graduates and their family members made some kind of political statement by walking out on Vice President Mike Pence as he started delivering a commencement address on his home turf at Indiana’s Notre Dame University on Sunday. The event provides yet another reason why America’s thought-stifling universities should be defunded and the ground sown with salt.

    President Obama held an Oval Office meeting with Middle Eastern-based Arab Christians on 9/11, one member of whom is a loud and proud supporter of the terrorist group Hezbollah. The day before, members of the same group, holding a conference under the name In Defense of Christians, booed and shouted down keynote speaker Senator Ted Cruz ”It’s surprising White House staffers allowed Maronite Patriarch Bashara Rai to meet with the President in the first place. As the Washington Free Beacon reports, the Lebanon-based Hezbollah supporting cleric isn’t shy about his views. “Everyone says why is Hezbollah carrying arms?” said Rai...

    "The Maronite leader said the meeting with Obama was productive, according to the Daily Star.” Productive for whom and in what manner? It seems Iran has found a way to influence American foreign policy even while they denounce America and build a nuclear capability. There can be no doubt that this whole episode was devised by the Ayatollahs, Hasan Rouhani, their best proxy army Hezbollah, and its leader Hasan Nasrallah. How better to infiltrate D.C. at this time than to masquerade as holding a conference on defending Christians — interestingly enough there was no support from the major Christian conservative...

    Demonstrators swarm the press tent with chants recalling Occupy Wall Street. More than a hundred Bernie Sanders supporters walked out of the Wells Fargo Center after Hillary Clinton won the roll call vote making her the Democratic nominee for president. The demonstration flouted the party's efforts to quell the revolt, even after Sanders himself moved to nominate Clinton by acclamation, and there were essentially no audible nays in the arena during the voice vote. . . Waving "Bernie or Bust" signs and wearing gags, Robin Hood hats and at least one Princess Leia costume, the demonstrators chanted "Walk out," "This...
