    A piece published by Time raised eyebrows after calling for a cultural reckoning of how superheroes are depicted amid the national dialogue that has cracked down on how TV shows and films portray police and law enforcement. Time writer Eliana Dockterman began the piece -- titled "We're Re-examining How We Portray Cops Onscreen. Now It's Time to Talk About Superheroes" -- by noting the recent cancellations of "Cops" and "Live PD" following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, and how even "Paw Patrol" has become a target. "But as we engage in this long overdue conversation about law enforcement,...

    One day there will be a dark unending abyss. One without beginning or end, without time or space. A mere black void, of intention and as I gaze upon it, peering into its endless depth I will realize it will have nothing more perverse than what I’ve seen during the great clown age. Make no mistake the headline is not an attempt to compete with the Babylon Bee for the most outrageous satirical piece. The book in question is very much real. Marvel’s recent attempt to cash in on the step-sibling trend on Pornhub has hilarious and massively backfired in...

    The idea of a campus “safe space”—a university-sanctioned oasis where students can go to destress and feel at ease—has had its share of ridicule. And it’s not hard to see why: It is often hard to distinguish between a college safe space and a preschool daycare. For example, in April 2019, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill hosted a “Week of Balance” for students. The week’s events were packed full of therapeutic activities including “coloring and origami therapy,” “sweet treats,” “yoga and crafting,” and engaging in a “cathartic primal scream” followed by an ice cream outing. But safe...

    Sydney Archbishop Anthony Fisher warned against the dangers of identity politics in his Christmas morning homily, suggesting that today’s snowflakes risk falling victims to a toxic narcissism. “As desires change, we can revise our bodies surgically or our beliefs ideologically,” the archbishop said. “But reducing ourselves to our tastes or to a single attribute risks neglecting other important things about us.” “Amidst celebrity adulation and identity politics, narcissism is now endemic. Too much focus on identity can be distorting,” he warned. Preaching to a standing room-only crowd of some 2,000 Catholics at St. Mary’s Cathedral Wednesday morning, Fisher said that...
  • Students dressed as ICE officers for Halloween draw outrage, administrative response

    Photos of three McMurtry College sophomores wearing U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement costumes to the Halloween event at Willy’s Pub drew student outrage on Twitter last night, leading to responses from university leadership. The photos show the students in line for Willy’s Pub wearing police uniforms with “ICE” prominently displayed on the back and breast with white tape. Two of the students who held college leadership positions as committee heads agreed to step down and all three will participate in a McMurtry town hall facilitated by their Diversity Council, according to McMurtry president Joyce Chen. The event will be held...
  • Third of Dems Say It’s Racist For White People To Criticize Non-White Politicians

    The groupthink mentality in the Democratic Party has reached a new clown world level. A new poll out of Rasmussen reveals that a whopping 32% of Democrats and even 16% of Republicans say it is racist when a white person criticizes a non-white politician. So, to keep your views completely immune from criticism in 2019, just don’t be white. When the sample of 1,000 voters was asked if they thought President Trump was a racist, 47% said yes. This was down from similar polling data that said 50% to the same question back in January 2018. When asked to define...
  • Our Free Speech Crisis

    The First Amendment to our Constitution was proposed by the 1788 Virginia ratification convention during its narrow 89 to 79 vote to ratify the Constitution. Virginia's resolution held that the free exercise of religion, right to assembly and free speech could not be canceled, abridged or restrained. These Madisonian principles were eventually ratified by the states on March 1, 1792. Gettysburg College professor Allen C. Guelzo, in his article "Free Speech and Its Present Crisis," appearing in the autumn 2018 edition of City Journal, explores the trials and tribulations associated with the First Amendment. The early attempts to suppress free...

Since when do universities resist the whims of the woke brigades? SEE ALSO: NY Times: Say, this Steele dossier appears to be false (and maybe was a Russian disinformation effort) If you find it gross that college students would support blackballing someone on the basis of a bare allegation, remember that that’s how students themselves are treated on campus under Title IX.

    TIERRA VERDE — Judson Kidd and James Donovan are a gay couple with an adopted black son. From the day they moved into their waterfront house last summer, they never felt welcomed in the conservative, overwhelmingly white community of Tierra Verde. Neighbors never waved or introduced themselves, they said. One mother yanked her daughter away when she started to play with 2-year-old Van. Then came Halloween, and the disturbing decorations at the big house up the street. The yard had been transformed into a graveyard. "CNN,’’ was written on one white cross, with a gruesome gray skull at its base....

    ...a young Communist female (who, by the way, proudly displays her hammer and sickle on her jacket) accosted a group of FSU Republicans in a profanity-laced rant, accused the conservatives of “normalizing and enabling Nazis” by supporting Rick Scott and Ron DeSantis and threw her drink on them in an apparent gesture of goodwill and community outreach. OK, maybe not goodwill… Here’s the video, and be warned, there’s a lot of graphic language here.

    Advertised as a "rejuvenating and a safe space where women can reinvent themselves and their desires," an island off the coast of Raasepori in southern Finland is being touted as an all-inclusive, testosterone-free luxury resort. According to the Supershe website, the island can accommodate ten women in four newly-renovated cabins. German-American entrepreneur Kristina Roth, the driving force behind the project, has dispelled the contradictory reports that have come out recently about the businesswoman allegedly abandoning her cause. In an interview with Finnish national broadcaster Yle, she set the record straight by claiming that the resort will open its doors on...

    .....The BET Network booted a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist from its conference for publishing a Q&A with Michelle Obama, sparking a social media storm. The network had invited the Washington Post’s Robin Givhan to its syntactically questionable “Leading Women Defined” conference in Bal Harbour, Fla., but then demanded she leave after she published her article, claiming that Obama’s talk had been conducted in a “sacred space.” ....while claiming Michelle’s talk was private, BET didn’t play by its own rules: The network posted sections of the interview on its website, while Valerie Jarrett, who conducted the chat, teased on social media that...

    Free speech may not mean what most college students think it means. The majority of college students surveyed in a Gallup/Knight Foundation study said they support free speech and believe it is vital to the health of democracy. Yet droves of students also said they favor policies that restrict free speech such as safe spaces, free speech zones, speech codes and bans on offensive Halloween costumes. Peter Wood, president of the National Association of Scholars, said “the discrepancy between what undergraduate students say they believe and what actions they are willing to take is really breathtaking.” “Students like the ring...

    Members of the Fordham University College Republicans club were recently asked to leave an on-campus coffee shop because they were wearing "Make America Great Again" hats. In a video obtained by Campus Reform, an employee at Rodrigue’s Coffee House, which is run by a student club, told the College Republicans they had five minutes to get out because the hats violated the cafe's “safe space policy.” “I don’t want people like you supporting this club," she says in the video. "No one here wants people like you supporting our club. I am giving you five minutes.” "You are wearing hats...

President Danny Siegel claims the photo was snapped sometime before last year’s student government election, and the group chat in which it was posted had been deleted.
