    Some students at Fort Hays State University (FHSU) in Kansas say a school-sponsored operetta production is not only “racist,” but also rife with “cultural appropriation.” FHSU Music and Theatre describes its production of The Mikado as “a fun burlesque romp about the whimsy of love” on its Facebook page. According to the operetta’s description, the play takes place “in a mythical Japan,” where the main character “has been appointed Lord High Executioner and must find someone to execute before the arrival of the ruling Mikado.”

    A soon-to-be-released updated edition of an Advanced Placement (AP) U.S. History textbook teaches students that white Christian Americans are finding it “difficult to adjust” to becoming a minority and puts forward the perception that President Donald Trump’s election occurred because his apparent “racism connected with a significant number of primary voters.” James Fraser’s By the People: A History of the United States, 2ndEdition, is published by Pearson and has a 2019 copyright date. Alex Clark – co-host of the Indiana-based morning radio Joe and Alex Show– tweeted photos of the cover and several pages of the book that she reports...
  • Rush Limbaugh, other conservatives attack NC school over white privilege handout

    04/15/2018 10:24:20 AM PDT · by Cubs Fan · 20 replies
    Conservatives around the country are attacking the Wake County school system, a Raleigh elementary school and the school's PTA over a handout about white privilege that was sent home with students. There's been national attention since a minority parent at Hunter Elementary School complained this week that her 8-year-old son brought home a handout on understanding the concept of white privilege — the idea that white people get certain benefits due to their skin color. School officials say the handout from Hunter's PTA was only intended for parents. But conservatives, including radio show hosts Rush Limbaugh and Todd Starnes, are...

    A statue to Thomas Jefferson on the lawn of the University of Virginia was defaced with the words 'racist' and 'rapist' early on Friday morning, just before the start of celebrations marking the 275th anniversary of his birth. A UVA spokesman said: 'The university is disappointed that individuals vandalized the statue of Thomas Jefferson on the Lawn on the day that we honor his contributions to our University and to our democracy. 'UVA welcomes open and civil discourse on such important issues. However, acts of vandalism do not contribute to meaningful discussion. 'Crews from Facilities Management are removing the vandalism,...

    A conservative student at Siena College is facing a disciplinary hearing after he posted 600 flyers around campus of an email in which a professor called conservative students “miserable” to work with. The "Notice of Charges" accuses Zachary Butler of actions that "adversely [affected] the health, welfare, and/or safety” of campus community members "or the name and/or reputation of the College."
  • Racist Poison Is Being Injected Into Journalism Students

    04/12/2018 9:40:37 AM PDT · by Liberty7732 · 12 replies
    While we were working as a nation to cleanse the American body of the poison of racism against blacks — a long, painful endeavor that was finally finding considerable success in the latter half of the 20th century — a different poison was being introduced into the body: racism against whites. Full out, white people are inherently, genetically evil racism. That statement may have sounded extreme a few years ago. No more. It is mainstreaming now right under our noses and, like so many damaging ideas of recent years, it is flowering among the leftists that oppress our nation’s college...

    An Erie school district has bought hundreds of new baseball bats – and it’s not planning a massive expansion of any sports programs. The Millcreek Township School District outside Erie distributed the miniature bats to 500 teachers last week as part of a training program on how to deal with school shooters, the Pittsburgh Tribune reports. Superintendent William Hall says it cost the district around $1,800 to buy 600 16-inch baseball bats, including some that will be placed in offices and other common areas. Hall says the bats are to give teachers a chance to fight back as part of...

    Illinois senators advanced a plan requiring public schools to teach a unit on the role and societal contributions of gays, lesbians and other LGBT individuals. [Snip] The proposal requires all elementary and high schools to teach a unit studying "the role and contributions of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people in the history of this country and this State." "People need to see their history to understand that they are a part of our society," said Sen. Heather Steans, the measure's sponsor. The measure would also have schools use more inclusive and "non-discriminatory" textbooks going forward. Johnson said the measure...

    Parkland shooting survivor and gun control activist David Hogg says his teachers are “very understanding” when he skips school for gun control rallies. Axios asked Hogg, “How do you do all this and make sure you graduate?” Hogg replied, “Good question. Talking to my teachers and trying to work it out day by day. I was supposed to do a math test yesterday, and I was like, ‘Nah,’ but it works out. My teachers are very understanding.” Axios followed up by asking Hogg if there is more his school could be doing for him. Hogg responded by suggesting his school...

    The University of Wisconsin at Stevens Point has proposed dropping 13 majors in the humanities and social sciences — including English, philosophy, history, sociology and Spanish — while adding programs with “clear career pathways” as a way to address declining enrollment and a multimillion-dollar deficit. Students and faculty members have reacted with surprise and concern to the news, which is being portrayed by the school’s administration as a path to regain enrollment and provide new opportunities to students. Critics see something else: a waning commitment to liberal arts education and a chance to lay off faculty under new rules that...

    Editor's Note: This column was co-authored by Tim Graham. Leftists in the Trump era claim to be the guardians of the First Amendment against an allegedly authoritarian president. But over the last few years, leftists have been the authoritarians on campus, squashing speeches by speakers they deem "fascist" and claiming that ideas they don't agree with are somehow tantamount to "violence." The latest example came from Lewis & Clark College in Portland -- the alma mater of Monica Lewinsky. On March 5, the local Federalist Society welcomed Christina Hoff Sommers, author of "The War Against Boys" and "Who Stole Feminism?"...

Anna Moeller (D-Elgin) have sponsored SB 3249 and HB 5596 respectively. These bills are considered companion bills and are presently in their respective committees and gaining co-sponsors. It is unclear how soon these bills will move and build momentum so please pray and act as soon as possible.

    A Brown University student has called for a “men’s revolution” to “liberate not only men, but all of society, from the constraints of toxic masculinity.” In a recent op-ed for The Brown Daily Herald, student Quentin Thomas argues that such a revolution is necessary because “toxic masculinity” causes men to “perpetrate harm against another individual and himself.”

    “I’m not worried about a few dozen people with swastikas who want to replace the Jews, because they’re our past,” Dershowitz explained. “They have no resonance on university campuses today. “But the hard, hard left?
