  • HARVARD HOSPITAL TAKES DOWN PORTRAIT OF "FATHER OF NEUROSURGERY"

    The cultural revolution is just getting started in medicine. And when it's done, medicine will consist entirely of venting about "white men" as the real "disease". What began with tearing down Confederate statues has now moved on to taking down portraits of people who are not even being accused of racism. They're just... white men. Nabel said no one on staff has objected to taking down portraits of past department heads, which include Dr. Harvey Cushing, the "father of neurosurgery," who studied at Harvard and Yale and became surgeon-in-chief at Peter Bent Brigham Hospital in 1913. Cushing operated on hundreds...

    MARSHALL, Mich. — A high school principal in southern Michigan has apologized to two graduates whom he had chastised for wearing their Marine dress uniforms during commencement. Marshall High School Principal Scott Hutchins apologized Monday for his comments regarding the two students' decision not to wear their caps and gowns on June 3, the Battle Creek Enquirer reported. School officials had told the two students ahead of commencement that exceptions wouldn't be made to a policy requiring graduates to wear a cap and gown, Superintendent Randy Davis said. Hutchins pulled aside Pfc. Willie Couch and Pfc. Samuel Hackworth at the...
  • ‘Battlefield V’ is Right to Include Women — They Were Vital to World War II

    The internet is in uproar (again). Developer DICE’s decision to include a woman on the cover art for this year’s Battlefield offering has, for some reason, antagonised the most vocal parts of the gaming internet. Within minutes of DICE revealing its new game, detractors on reddit, Twitter and various online gaming forums were spouting their vitriol, furious that DICE had sacrificed authenticity in favour of ‘political correctness’. Here’s the thing, though: it hasn’t. Women have always played a vital role in the World’s wars, and to ignore that is to be willfully ignorant. From soldiers enlisted in active duty to...

    The police captain who told sheriff's deputies to 'stage' and form a perimeter outside Stoneman Douglas High School as students and teachers were shot inside on February 14 is being replaced. Jan Jordan, 49, was in charge of deputies who responded to the first calls of the shooting in Parkland, Florida, on February 14. She will be removed from her position, which will instead be taken up by an officer of a higher rank, Fox News reported on Thursday. The move to replace Jordan with a major was made as part of the city's re-evaluation of its contract with the...

    Comedians are becoming increasingly reluctant to perform on college campuses due to a sensitive culture of political correctness, and college bookers don't seem to mind. According to VICE News report published last week, several successful comedians, including Judy Gold, Jerry Seinfeld, and Chris Rock, now avoid going to college campuses because their jokes can be deemed offensive. “Why is it that everyone has to adjust to everyone else? Don’t hire me if you don’t want to hear what I have to say,” Gold told the publication. When asked to explain how she would react if her jokes offended an audience...

    Starbucks, trying to put to rest an outcry over the arrest of two black men at one of its stores, is closing more than 8,000 stores for an afternoon of anti-bias training, a strategy some believe can keep racism at bay. After the arrests in Philadelphia last month, the coffee chain's leaders apologized and met with the two men, but also reached out to activists and experts in bias training to put together a curriculum for its 175,000 workers.
  • Woman with chin tattoo accused of appropriating native New Zealand culture

    A woman from New Zealand is facing backlash after photos of her chin tattoo began making waves earlier this week. Sally Anderson, a life coach, reportedly got the tattoo as an homage to New Zealand's indigenous Maori culture, but some are saying it's offensive on the grounds of cultural appropriation. The tattoo, known as a "moko kauae," has since sparked a debate across the island nation, the BBC reported. The blonde, blue-eyed white woman is reportedly married to a Maori man who has a full facial tattoo, and she claims her body art symbolizes strength after surviving a gang rape...

    The new Magnum being a minority..? I sorta expected that. But then Higgins turned out a sassy, hot blonde British female. And then "Higgins" started roundhouse kicking KGB contractors in the jaw, knocking them out. And giving "Magnum" a whole lot of lip. And that's when I got very scared and angry.

    Study: Voters Worried About Political Correctness Flocked to Candidate Trump "Support for Trump (and opposition to Clinton) is especially likely amongst people who feel emotional reactance to restrictive communication norms." Robby Soave | May. 18, 2018 9:15 am In the immediate aftermath of the 2016 election, I suggested that Donald Trump's unlikely victory was partly the result of backlash against political correctness—something the Republican candidate deftly turned to his advantage during both the primaries and the general election. A year and a half later, there's a good amount of evidence supporting this theory. Take this study, produced by a team...

    MARLIN, Texas (KWTX) The Marlin ISD’s Board of Managers voted 3-0 Tuesday evening to terminate the contract of Marlin High School teacher Claude Kelley, who was placed on administrative leave for alleged comments he made during state testing. Superintendent Michael Seabolt said it was reported that right before an Algebra I course exam last week, Kelley said in front of teachers and students, that “there were only a couple smart enough to pass it, anyway.” “You can think bad things about my kids, but I better never hear it,” Seabolt said. “I took it pretty seriously.” Following the results of...

    What's in a word? Why does it matter whether we call someone who breaks the law to enter the country an "illegal alien" or an "undocumented immigrant"? What's the difference between a Christmas tree and a "holiday tree"? It's just semantics, right? Yes...and no. It is just semantics. But "semantics" means the meaning of words. Words exist so that we might differentiate one thing from another. Without words we have chaos. And it starts with the first words; a baby says ‘Mama’ to distinguish Mommy from Daddy. Words shape how we think; they color how we view the world. And...

    In an email to the student body, a Gonzaga University administrator cautioned that Cinco de Mayo has become "full of cultural appropriation," directing them to a flyer listing "alternative" ways of celebrating the holiday. "Don't you dare put on that 'sombrero,'" the flyer tells students, suggesting that they "donate to organizations working for immigrant rights" rather than have a party. Another option is to "support AUTHENTIC Mexican businesses" run by "actual Mexican people," though it cautions that "CHIPOTLE DOESN’T COUNT."

The United States Military Academy is sinking into the Hudson and General MacArthur’s million ghosts in olive drab, in brown khaki, in blue and gray, can rise from their white crosses thundering those magic words: Duty, Honor, Country from now until forever. No one at the Point is listening anymore… The enemy is not at the gates of West Point. The enemy is inside and burning the institution down. Today, I learned that it’s...

    Every now and then a news item pops up that is so ridiculous that you figure it's just got to be fake news, somebody's idea of a joke. You check the calendar to make sure it's not April Fools' Day. And when you realize it isn't, you come to understand that in our hypersensitive culture, a news story can be factual, accurate and preposterous all at the same time. Which brings us to the TV play-by-play man for the Oklahoma City Thunder, a team in the National Basketball Association. The announcer, Brian Davis, was calling a game in which the...

    SACRAMENTO, California, April 18, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – The California State Assembly is slated to vote on legislation that has been interpreted as broad enough to ban the sale of books that address helping people overcome unwanted same-sex attractions. AB 2943 adds “[a]dvertising, offering to engage in, or engaging in sexual orientation change efforts with an individual” to the state’s list of illegal “unfair methods of competition and unfair or deceptive acts or practices undertaken by any person in a transaction intended to result or that results in the sale or lease of goods or services to any consumer.” “Sexual orientation...

    David Horowitz’s Twitter feed was besieged after he pointed out the obvious. Left-wingers have spent the last few days attacking David Horowitz for challenging the Equal Justice Initiative and its efforts to foment anti-white racial hatred by presenting the odious practice of lynching as an exclusively white instrument of racial oppression and terror used against blacks. But history is rarely as clear-cut as radical leftist ideologues pretend.  Lynchings were carried out in an atmosphere of mass hysteria where enraged individuals acted to eliminate the perceived risk that a guilty person might go unpunished. If the black lynching victim was alleged...
