    Modern Educayshun is a short film by Neel Kolhatkar. It targets the bizarre and extreme form of liberalism that is ruining schools and universities. In previous years young minds were figuring out how to get to the moon. Now universities seem obsessed with “micro-aggression” and finding more and more reasons to be offended by virtually everything. This video is pretty amusing and has a horror movie type soundtrack. If you think this video is funny please share. Modern Educayshun To see another video from Neel Kolhatkar check out Equality

    Ah the 1960’s: the decade of America’s counter-cultural revolution. Youthful revolutionaries circa 1960 found fault with America’s materialism and sought to improve society’s inequities tied to race, class, and gender. Campus unrest was rampant, civil discourse was not-so-civil, and everyone, everywhere seemed consumed by racial tension fueled by charges of discrimination. Had we done a better job, perhaps we wouldn’t still be litigating the same grievances 50 years hence.At the half century mark all we’ve effectively done is impose mandatory politically correct speech, create campus “safe spaces” and raise children who grow more hyper-sensitive to real and/or perceived micro-aggressions with...

The guide was developed in 2013 by several advocacy groups whose members are appointed by the university president. It was mentioned in an annual report submitted by at least one of those groups in 2014, but the university said administrators did not know about it until this week, when it was criticized in the media.

    Some viewers of Jurassic World are taking offense to the film, calling one of the lines in the movie "racist." Specifically, the abbreviation of the dinosaur Pachycephalosaurus. During the course of the film, the Pachycephalosaurus escape from their enclosures, leading one character to shout, "The Pachys are out of containment!" This has led news outlets and Twitter users to call the film "racist." A British comedian originally brought attention to the line, offering a tongue-in-cheek rant against the dinosaur's name. However, people did not get the joke, and are actually calling the film racist. The Independent called the line "very...

Princeton University students launched a microaggression-reporting service. In December, Princeton students relaunched Tiger Microaggressions, a service that takes other students reports of microaggressions and publishes them on its Facebook page. According to the operators, absolutely anything can qualify as a microaggression since there are no objective definitions to words and phrases. 2.

The official guests of honor were revered science-fiction and fantasy authors, editors, and illustrators, all of whom were in their 60s and 70s. Nine Worlds was smaller, younger, and catered to a more varied crowd including comics, TV, and fanfic followers. But since both...

    The Islamic State and the other advocates of sharia law are growing rapidly, along with their zeal to eradicate or convert all infidels. For those who are asleep at the wheel, in the opinion of these fanatics, most of Western civilization including America fits into the infidel category. I normally encourage conversation and compromise where possible, but how does one negotiate or compromise with someone who desires your elimination? Maybe if you meet some of their demands, they will only dismember you or kill you more slowly. Obviously, the expansion of groups such as the Islamic State represents...

    The New York Times is under fire for its profile of Michael Brown, the unarmed black teenager who was shot to death by police in Ferguson, Missouri, on 9 August. The article, which was published on Sunday, the day before Mr Brown's funeral, paints an intimate portrait of his life. It also reveals some of the personal struggles he faced in the days leading up to his death. "Michael Brown, 18, due to be buried on Monday, was no angel, with public records and interviews with friends and family revealing both problems and promise in his young life," writes John...
  • Will ESPN Suspend Mike Ditka?

    ESPN has a nasty habit of suspending people who they hire to share opinions. Stephen A. Smith was recently suspended for daring to suggest a woman shouldnt antagonize her violent husband. You would think this is common sense. If a woman knows her man is violent and knows what will trigger him, its probably not a good idea to antagonize him. That doesnt let husband off the hook of course and Smith so much as said so. Max Kellerman admitted on the air he hit his girlfriend years ago (it was in context of the NFLs Ray Rice suspension, which...

    When Ideology Trumps Science: Neil deGrasse Tyson and Cosmos on Global Warming Jay W. Richards August 6, 2014 1:15 PM | Permalink I finally had a chance to watch the twelfth, penultimate episode of Cosmos, "The World Set Free." I was out of the country in June when it originally aired, but since there's no doubt the series is headed into the schools and remains relevant, I'll take this opportunity to comment. The episode stands out from most previous installments. Just when we've grown accustomed to circuitous narrative threads with obscure segues from one topic to the next, we get...

    A star high school athlete in rural Marshalltown, Iowa has been suspended for three football games this fall because he posted a social media image of himself enthusiastically festooned from head to toe in white clothing during school spirit week. In the photo, he made the letter W with his hands which in this case stands for white. The actual school chose the colors that each grade would be wearing, Cathy Van Staalduine explained. Juniors wore white. So Blair, of course, being active in the school, dressed from head to toe in white. She noted emphatically that the W...

    Men who have sex with other men have been banned from donating blood by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration since 1977. According to the CDC, gay and bisexual men accounted for 63 percent of new HIV infections in 2010. Universities across the country are hosting a National Gay Blood Drive today to encourage the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to change its current policies which prevent gay men from donating blood. According to the FDAs website, men who have sex with other men (MSM) have an increased risk for HIV, hepatitis B and other types of infections that can...

    Graham Nash feels optimistic that young people will once again change America for the better. So while hes frustrated by political ideals surrounding issues like global warming and marriage equality, he realizes that those powers against progress will naturally run their course. They will all die at one point and the children will take over, Nash said. Then he added: Do you know anybody under 25 that gives a damn whether you marry a man if youre a man or if you marry a woman if youre a woman? No.

    Earlier this month, the story of a little girls experience at a local Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) went viral. According to reports, three-year Victoria Welcher, who had been disfigured in a pit-bull attack, was kicked out of a Mississippi KFC restaurant because her face was making the other diners uncomfortable. Victorias family posted a photo of the child on Facebook with the caption, Does this face look scary to you? Last week at KFC in Jackson MS this precious face was asked to leave because her face scared the other diners. I personally will never step foot in another...

    Why the Redskins Trademark Ruling Should Terrify You Article Subtitle: Anyone deemed politically incorrect is now outside the protection of the law. Like most people, I havent been all that interested in the controversy over whether the name of the Washington Redskins is offensive. Personally, Im more offended that Washington, DC, has become the kind of megalopolis that can support an NFL team. If I had my way, it would go back to being a humid, swampy backwater with impassable mud roads. Pierre LEnfant has much to answer for. But I think everyone should be terrified by the new ruling...

    Here is a transcript of the trans-Atlantic telephone conversation that would have taken place between General Dwight D. "Ike" Eisenhower, commander of the Allied Expeditionary Force, and President Barack Obama on the eve of the Normandy Invasion, June 6, 1944. Friday is the 70th anniversary of the landing. President Obama: General, are you sure we are doing the right thing by going ahead with this invasion? Ike: It's too late to turn back now. Obama: I should have flown to Berchtesgaden and talked with Mr. Hitler. Or at least called. Ike: He won't take your calls. Obama: OK, Ike. But...
