  • Notre Dame to Cover Up Christopher Columbus Murals

    SOUTH BEND, Ind. — The University of Notre Dame will cover murals in a campus building that depict Christopher Columbus in America, the school's president said, following criticism that the images depict Native Americans in stereotypical submissive poses before white European explorers. The 12 murals created in the 1880s by Luis Gregori were intended to encourage immigrants who had come to the U.S. during a period of anti-Catholic sentiment. But they conceal another side of Columbus: the exploitation and repression of Native Americans, said the Rev. John Jenkins, president of Notre Dame...
  • Anti-Christian Ideology Is an Emerging Aspect of White Progressive Populism

    National Review ^ | 1-22-19 | David French
    One striking feature of left-wing hostility to conservative Christianity is its insistence that opposition to secular progressive morality is proof of malign intent. Instead of asking whether progressive intolerance (or the selection of a corrupt Democratic candidate) played any part in the 81 percent white Evangelical opposition to Hillary Clinton, all too many progressives use that level of united opposition as grounds for further hatred. And, yes, there’s also the condescending sympathy: “They’re brainwashed by Fox. They’re voting against their interests.” Last summer I wrote an essay called the Great White Culture War. I argued that a great deal of...

    WASHINGTON — Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez toppled a well-established Democratic leader in a stunning primary upset last year — now she's looking to spur others to do the same. In a promotional video for Justice Democrats, the grassroots group that backed Ocasio-Cortez's 2018 upstart run against Joe Crowley, a 10-term incumbent, as well as Rep. Ayanna Pressley's successful challenge to Mike Capuano in Massachusetts, Ocasio-Cortez shares lessons from her campaign to help boost a new recruitment drive for progressive insurgents called #OurTime. Already, the group is publicly searching for a primary challenger to centrist Rep. Henry Cuellar, D-Texas. Cuellar has defended...

    Roku will no longer include the controversial show Infowars, hosted by right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, on its platform, the company said in a statement on Twitter Tuesday night. The move comes less than 24 hours after the company initially defended its choice to include the channel, saying in a statement to Digiday that the channel did not violate terms of use and it does "not curate or censor based on viewpoint."

    Stone Transferred To Wisconsin Veterans' Museum Storage After 113 years, a monument to Confederate soldiers in a Madison cemetery has come down. The stone cenotaph, inscribed with 140 names of prisoners-of-war, stood on an area known as Confederate Rest since 1906 — that is, until last week, when a crew from the Madison Parks Department and a local monument company transferred it from the Forest Hills Cemetery to storage at the Wisconsin Veterans Museum. Madison City Council voted in October to remove the monument and place it in a museum. Logistics and weather delayed the transfer until now, said Eric...

    Time is like a river. You cannot touch the water twice, because the flow that has passed will never pass again. Franklin Graham was speaking at the First Baptist Church in Jacksonville, Florida, when he said America will not come back. He wrote: “The American dream ended on November 6th, 2012. The second term of Barack Obama has been the final nail in the coffin for the legacy of the white Christian males who discovered, explored, pioneered, settled and developed the greatest republic in the history of mankind. "A coalition of blacks, Latinos, feminists, gays, government workers, union members, environmental...

    Hundreds of demonstrators gathered at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill Monday night to protest the university's proposal to construct a new building to house a Confederate monument on campus. Footage of the protests shared by The Daily Tar Heel showed dozens of individuals chanting and holding signs as they make their way towards campus. Protestors can be heard chanting "who do you protect, who do you serve" near a barricaded area that had once been the home of the Confederate statue, "Silent Sam." The statue had stood on campus since it was erected in 1913 to honor students...

    PENDLETON, SC (WSPA) - The death of a high school student in a tragic crash may have sparked a racial divide and caused school threats on social media. It all started with an idea to honor 17 year old Dillon Padgett who was killed in a crash not far from Pendleton High School on Saturday. That idea ended with threats to bring weapons to the school. Padgett is best described by his friends as patriotic. So those grieving friends tell 7News they honored him on Monday at the high school by donning confederate flag shirts and taking a group picture...

    Trafalgar Square and it’s monument in the heart of London is dedicated to the British naval victory over Napoleons combined French and Spanish fleet at Cape Trafalgar in October 1805.

    The Amazon series "The Man in The High Castle" is about an alternate universe where the Axis won World War II. Germany occupies the Eastern United States and Japan the West. The nightmarish series isn't easy to watch, especially the last episode of Season 3, where the Nazis decide that to truly wield power, they must eradicate U.S. history. The Statue of Liberty is blown up in New York Harbor and the Liberty Bell melted down and recast as a giant swastika. In New York City, mobs of torch-bearing youth roam the streets chanting "Blood and Soil," and attacking passersby....

    Letters spelling out “Trump Place” on the facades of an Upper West Side building will be pried off by workers Thursday, following a vote from the condo’s board, according to reports. Residents at 200 Riverside Blvd., a 46-story building between 69th and 70th streets, fought for the right to tear the Trump name from their building following the 2016 election, with many people wanting to distance themselves from politics, The New York Times reported. Eric Chung, a longtime resident whose family owns two units in the building, told The Times that removing the letters “makes a very powerful statement.”

    Facebook announced on Wednesday that it is taking new steps to prevent voter suppression by banning fake voting requirement information and hoax reports of violence at polling stations ahead of next month's midterm elections. The move comes as a part of a broader plan from Facebook to remove voter misinformation. Last month, the company said that it would begin banning “misrepresentations about how to vote, such as claims that you can vote by text message, and statements about whether a vote will be counted.” The social media giant also previously introduced a new tool, labeled “Incorrect voting information," to let...
