    The lessons of the Conquered. The British people are already essentially defeated; that they are more concerned about being called Islamophobic than actually doing anything to stop Islamic terrorism? And they are disarming their children, leading the sheep to slaughter. There may “always be an England?”Chaos and civil war. There may always be an England, but it will be a sharia state. Were the children at the Ariana Grande concert not sufficiently respectful enough? WRITE A LETTER TO TERRORISTS!

  • "Fake History" is More Dangerous Than "Fake News"

    The Public Discourse (Witherspoon Institute) ^ | May 15th, 2017 | William Jeyne
    Donald Trump and others have complained a great deal about the pervasiveness of “fake news.” What is less commonly spoken about is that for decades professors have also taught a good deal of “fake history.” Fake history promotes false narratives, twists the facts, or omits certain key facts altogether. And it is this fake history that has established the foundation for fake news. There are three respects in which the spread of fake history has been particularly dangerous and served as the foundation for attempts to spread fake news. First, some historians and political thinkers present extreme leftists as heroes...

    Justus Walker was enjoying his Grade 11 class in sociology. Then came the lesson on white privilege. The teacher handed out a checklist with instructions for the students to score themselves on how much of it they had. The questions included things such as: “I can go into a supermarket and find the staple foods which fit with my cultural traditions.” The answers would determine their “privilege points.” After they had completed the exercise, the students were asked to line up in order, from least points to most, and discuss the impact of white privilege on their lives. Some of...

    Heat Street ^ | 11 May 2017 | Ian Miles Cheong
    Administrators at the University of Arizona are now accepting applications for “social justice advocates,” whose job it is to snitch on other students accused of bias. They’re also expected to hold educational programs about “the mosaic of diversity, multiculturalism and inclusivity” and maintain “social justice bulletin boards” in student residence halls. The job, which officially calls (archived link) for the advocates to “report any bias incidents or claims to appropriate Residence Life staff,” pays the student workers $10 an hour. They’re expected to work 15 hours a week, which means they could be making as much as $600 a month...
  • High School Teacher Is Recruiting Students to Riot Against Trump In California

    Tenth Grade Oakland Tech High English teacher Livier Perez invited BAMN, a revolutionary communist group, to speak to her 10th grade students at Oakland Technical High School, Oakland,California. BAMN is a violent Antifa group. The lecturers were recruiters, handing out flyers and encouraging the students to commit acts of violence. At the same time, they brainwashed them with lies. At one point, a student asks, so we should just have open borders and let everyone walk through? The BAMN recruiter responds, Yes, this is what’s best for the economy and everyone deserves free healthcare. If this is what is going...

    An assistant principal at a suburban Philadelphia school has resigned after video circulated online showing him arguing with and cursing at teenage abortion protesters outside the school. Zach Ruff, dean of student life and academics at Downingtown STEM Academy, had been on unpaid leave after the April confrontation. The school district said Thursday that it would like to put "this terribly unfortunate incident" in the past. Video showed an escalating argument between Ruff and two protesters who were on a sidewalk near the school. When asked to leave, the protesters said they were on public property. Ruff can be heard...
  • Texas A&M Professor says white people may have to be killed

    05/10/2017 8:32:44 PM PDT · by TigerClaws · 155 replies
    Tommy Curry is a professor at Texas A&M. Curry teaches “Radical Black Philosophies” and “Social and Political Philosophy.” He advocates “Critical Race Theory.” This is a black nationalist version of Marxist Critical Theory. Among other things, Curry says that black people should talk openly about murdering white people. In a youtube interview, he says that the murder of white people may be necessary for “black liberation.” Further, he suggests that white people need to fear blacks so much that they believe “death could come for them at any moment.” Currently, interracial murders in the USA involving blacks and whites are...

    It’s apparently okay to read history books at Northern Arizona University, but not the Good Book. Mark Holden, a 22-year-old history major, tells me he was ordered to leave a lecture hall after his professor objected to him reading the Bible before the start of the class. Holden alleges that Professor Heather Martel ordered him to put away the Good Book around six minutes before a scheduled history class. It’s unclear why she objected to the reading of God’s Word. According to her biography, Professor Martel is a noted scholar who is working on an essay titled, “The Gender Amazon:...

    wnd.com ^ | 4/29/2017 | Bob Unruh
    A number of Ph.Ds have written a book chapter asserting that doubts about the theory of human-caused global warming should be considered “real science.” You know, the idea of basing hypotheses on documented evidence rather than a political agenda. But the National Science Teachers Association wants nothing to do with such an approach. Its executive director, David Evans, has written a letter to members insisting they must teach the agendas of the National Wildlife Federation, the North American Association for Environmental Education, the Campaign for Environmental Literacy, the Center for Climate Change Communication and other activist groups. What they must...

    Multiple scientists and climate change advocates are calling for a boycott of The New York Times after an op-ed that they felt pushed anti-climate change agendas. The Friday column, the first written by Bret Stephens for the publication, uses the argument that data doesn’t always convey reality to make the point that climate change isn’t definite, despite evidence that supports the claim. He refers partially to Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential run, chronicled in the recent book “Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton’s Doomed Campaign.” Authors Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes wrote that the campaign relied too much on data, one of the...

    Accuracy in Academia ^ | April 25, 2017 | Malcolm A. Kline
    The Left's long march through the academy may be nearing its penultimate battlesite—mathematics. Up until now, it has remained so neutral in the Culture Wars that a smattering of conservatives could even be found teaching it. "On a chilly evening in March, students in Cecilia Arias's mathematics course here at Rutgers University were learning about a concept called fair division," Shannon Najmabadi wrote in an article which appeared in The Chronicle of Higher Education on April 21, 2017. "More specifically, they were considering the case of Jason, Kelly, and Lauren, three business owners who share a location in the mall."...

    A geology professor at Pomona College says she will prioritize students of color, immigrants, and low-income students for enrollment in a class with a strict 15-student cap. A flyer advertising the course on “Southern California Earthquakes and Water,” an introductory geological science class with a particular focus on “the particular geologic challenges” of Southern California, expresses a particular desire for “students from a range of backgrounds whose varied perspectives will contribute to the course.”

    A Boone County school teacher says she let students Thursday see and one student photograph her at school wearing a jacket saying “Tuck Frump,” with letters composing the f-word highlighted in white. Cheryl Judy, who’s now receiving backlash online, said she only briefly revealed the anti-President Trump statement at school to about six to eight high school students. . . . She said she’s been a West Virginia public school teacher for about 23 years, 13 or 14 of those in Boone. She said she’s also the secretary for the Boone branch of the American Federation of Teachers, one of...

    The Libertarian Republican reported: The University of Alaska Anchorage is displaying a professor’s painting that depicts Captain America holding the severed head of President Donald Trump, reports Campus Reform. The work, created by Assistant Professor of Painting Thomas Chung, is being presented as part of a month-long faculty art exhibition in the university’s fine arts gallery, reports KTUU. “It’s an image of the actor who plays Captain America, and two eagles are sort of screaming into his ears, and he’s holding the severed head of Trump, and there’s a young Hillary Clinton clinging to his leg,” Chung said to describe...

    Next week’s scheduled speech by right-wing pundit Ann Coulter at UC Berkeley is off — for now — because campus officials say they won’t be able to protect participants from rioting if it should happen. "We have been unable to find a safe and suitable venue for your planned April 27 event featuring Ann Coulter," vice chancellors Scott Biddy and Stephen Sutton emailed the student groups co-hosting the event — the Berkeley College Republicans and BridgeUSA — Tuesday evening.

    The circumstances that led to protests and a two-day shutdown of classes at Harvey Mudd College have been brewing for years -- long bottled-up tensions about workload, race issues and a new and painful student mistrust of the faculty. Monday and Tuesday this week, the California college will not hold classes, the cancellation following a student sit-in last week at the campus, where minority students issued demands to administration -- among them to funnel more money into counseling services, specifically geared toward students of color, and to prioritize minority student groups with funding and other perks. Students didn’t ask for...

Keith Fink, a UCLA professor who teaches classes on entertainment law and free speech, fears the university could an upcoming professional review to help push him out of the institution. Fink has previously caused waves on campus by refusing to embrace trigger warnings and safe spaces, prompting the university to block some students from taking his classes. University policy dictates that every lecturer must undergo a periodic...

    "Diversity statements" are used by universities in Oregon to weed out conservative and other right-leaning scholars at universities, a new report issued by the Oregon Association of Scholars (OAS) alleges. Per the report, the universities in Oregon (University of Oregon, Oregon State University, Portland State University, and Oregon Health and Science University) use a new kind of litmus test to single out conservative scholars: diversity statements. The report’s executive summary reads, as follows: Oregon colleges and universities have begun to impose requirements for prospective and current faculty to show their commitment to the partisan ideology of "diversity, equity, and inclusion."...
