    The Republican Party of Fayette County’s headquarters on Southland Drive was vandalized either late Friday or early Saturday by someone who painted “Nazi scum” and “Die Nazi!” across the office’s front windows and door. It was the second act of vandalism at the office since Republican President Donald Trump’s election last November, when someone smashed the glass door with a small metal dumbbell. State and local GOP officials swiftly said that they don’t blame the Democratic Party for the malicious acts.

  • Who Gives the SPLC the Right to Designate Who is a Hater?

    Today, we have liberal groups like the Southern Poverty Law Center designating any group THEY choose as a "hate group" and once issued, the media, politicians, and others repeat that designation as if it has genuine validity. Exactly who is the arbiter of hate designations in the United States? Did the SPLC have to somehow qualify as to how to spot "hate" and assure their designations are 100% accurate and that partisanship is not used to politically smear one while looking the other way on a like-minded other?

    Is Jesus a hate crime? Police on Long Island ponder this question in the aftermath of an anonymous donor placing a picture of the crucifixion on a fence outside a mosque in New Hyde Park, New York. The cops reportedly regard the gift as a “bias incident” against Muslims. But the tacky turquoise picture featuring squiggly lines and a silhouette Christ seems more of an offense against aesthetics than the law. A worker at the Hillside Islamic Center found the artwork at around 5:30 p.m. on Friday. He immediately phoned the police. Surveillance video captured a frame-by-frame account of the alleged criminal...

    Philippine military officials said Wednesday that they've asked social media companies including Facebook to remove a video of militants smashing icons in a Catholic church in a besieged southern city, saying it may be an attempt to fan hatred and turn the conflict into a religious war. Brig. Gen. Restituto Padilla, the military spokesman, also urged netizens not to share the video, which shows militants ripping a picture of Pope Francis, toppling a crucifix, and stomping on and torching religious statues. Militants aligned with the Islamic State group continue to control pockets of territory in Marawi, where they laid siege...

    We are in the midst of a college hoax epidemic, and it shows no signs of getting any better. Just last week at St. Olaf College, a racist note placed on a black student’s car was revealed as a hoax, written by someone who wanted to “draw attention to concerns about the campus climate.” At USC last month, someone hung a “no black people allowed” sign outside of a residence hall; the fellow who hung this reputable message turned out to be…a black person himself. At Indiana State University ....

    Richard W. Collins III, fatally stabbed last weekend on the University of Maryland’s College Park campus, was as innocent as the 22 victims slain in the Manchester suicide bombing on Monday. Collins, an African American, newly commissioned U.S. Army officer from Maryland, was, like the victims of the Manchester, England, massacre, not bothering anybody. Slated to graduate from Bowie State University this week, Collins was simply out with friends enjoying himself. So, too, were those killed and wounded in Manchester. Authorities are investigating Collins’s death, allegedly at the hands of a knife-wielding University of Maryland student, Sean Urbanski, as a...
