    Former Vice President Mike Pence appeared at the University of North Carolina this past week which, according to the student paper, resulted in some students leaving campus out of fear for “their safety.” The Daily Tar Heel reports that Pence spoke on April 26 about “a range of issues” at the “Saving America from the Woke Left” event sponsored by the Young America’s Foundation and the campus College Republicans. The UNC Young Democrats and members of 15 other student groups joined for a pre-Pence speech protest (pictured), dubbed “Saving America With the ‘Woke Left.’” Freshman Sawyer Husain, who’s from Pence’s...

    MADISON, Wis. -- Another speaker has sparked controversy on the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus after students received an email Wednesday morning that Catholic author Kim Zember would discuss her experiences with homosexuality and life with Christ Thursday evening. At first glance, many students felt excited that UW-Madison would host a speaker that promoted acceptance of LGBTQIA+ people in the Catholic faith. "I was honestly kind of happy initially upon seeing the email," student Mia Warren said. "It used a lot of LGBTQIA+ affirming language, and I think the main message of the email was love wins." But upon further research,...

    Big-time colleges so rarely have attacks of momentary sanity these days that it’s highly newsworthy when one really does exercise good judgment. Forgive, then, a few exuberant hosannas for Cornell University for rejecting a collegiate snowflake demand for mandatory “trigger warnings.” The school’s Student Assembly voted unanimously — doesn’t anyone think for herself anymore? — to “require instructors who present graphic traumatic content that may trigger the onset of symptoms of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) to provide advance notice to students and refrain from penalizing students who opt out of exposure to such content.” The resolution so often repeats the...

    TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) - The former principal for a Tallahassee charter school resigned after what she called a “series of miscommunications” regarding a 6th grade art class lesson that included an image of Michelanglo’s ‘David.’ The situation drew several complaints from parents, and has launched debate over the school’s policies. Tallahassee Classical School confirmed to WCTV the art lesson took place last Friday, and several parents reached out to express concerns that same day. Board Chair Barney Bishop confirmed that as part of an emergency meeting on Monday, a few days after the lesson, former principal Hope Carrasquilla was given...
  • Trump-appointed judge wants apology after ambush from Stanford dean

    A federal judge appointed by former President Trump was ambushed by about 100 student protesters and a woke diversity dean who derailed his talk at Stanford Law School and accused him of causing “harm” to students. Tirien Steinbach, the school’s associate dean for diversity, equity and inclusion, subjected U.S. Circuit Judge S. Kyle Duncan to a lengthy harangue and made it clear to him his presence on campus was unwelcome, video of the event shows. “It’s uncomfortable to say this to you as a person. It’s uncomfortable to say that for many people here, your work has caused harm,” Steinbach...

    The judge in the picture above in Kyle Duncan. He is a sitting judge on the 5th Circuit Cour of Appeals. The hideous creature on the right is Tirien Steinbach. She is the Dean of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion at Stanford University (did you even know there was such a thing?) Duncan was invited by the Stanford Chapter of the Federalist Society to give a speech on guns, COVD mandates and Twitter. As he was to being speaking he was ambushed by the hideous creature who then spouted off about how terrible Duncan was. But she then launched into an...

    Whoopi Goldberg told her co-hosts Thursday on ABC’s “The View” that she believed Republicans were “snowflakes” who want to get “rid” of women running amuck doing things, drag queens and people of color. Goldberg said, “Maher had some criticisms for the other side of the aisle, claiming the left lost the definition of woke.” On CNN, comedian Bill Maher said, “Democrats sometimes can take it too far. I would categorize liberal as different than woke. Woke started out as a good thing. An alert to injustice, who can be against that? But became an eye roll because they love diversity...

    Students and faculty have planned yet another protest as former Sen. Ben Sasse, R-Neb., prepares to take leadership of the University of Florida. UF President-elect Sasse recently won approval from the Board of Trustees to become the school’s next president. He is one of many Republicans and conservatives who are taking up positions in Florida’s academia amid a much larger push against woke politicization of education. The Gainesville Sun, a local Florida newspaper, reported that the incoming college president "will be greeted by protestors Monday afternoon outside the school's administration building as he officially takes the helm of the top-5...

    What used to be arguably America’s most famous candy became infamous over the course of the last few years as it descended into woke culture as many corporations did, and just like these other corporations, it paid the price."Get woke, Go broke," as the saying goes. M&M’s marketing team decided to take the beloved characters and begin changing up how they act and behave. While Red and Yellow were left alone, Green was defeminized so that she wasn’t so obviously a woman, which was offensive to the hard left for some reason. Moreover, they began adding other colors for the...

    A New York professor says that Generation Z is too brittle and jeopardizes America’s future, especially if a war happens because they will be useless in combat. Backing up that statement is, “Pentagon and Army Major Jon-Marc Thibodeau believe that Generation Z’s skeletons are weaker for various reasons. The dubbed “Nintendo Generation” has listed that a sedentary lifestyle has affected the skeletons of the current-day soldiers, making them easier to break when transitioning from a civilian lifestyle into the military.” Gen Z has been raised to be addicted to pointless social media posts and to be whiny victims who have...

    Thousands of left-wing activists gathered at Habima Square in Tel Aviv on Saturday evening to protest Benjamin Netanyahu's new government. In an attempt to block the Ayalon highway, hundreds of protesters are reportedly attempting to push through police lines. Despite the organizer's attempts to fight the waving of PLO flags at the demonstration by distributing Israeli flags, countless PLO flags, along with flags of the radical Antifa movement, have been spotted at the demonstration. At 8:00 PM, police estimated that approximately 15,000 protesters had gathered at the square. At the same time, approximately 2,000 protesters demonstrated in Haifa, and in...

    A reporter indicated that he may sue Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., after internal documents at Twitter revealed the Democrat tried to get him banned from the platform. Elon Musk and journalist Matt Taibbi’s "Twitter Files" entry last week revealed that Schiff lobbied Twitter to suspend journalist Paul Sperry from the social media site in November 2020. Sperry, a senior reporter for and a New York Post columnist, told Fox's Brian Kilmeade that he was targeted by Schiff because of his reporting on Democrat sources in President Donald Trump's first impeachment trial. "So, Schiff didn't like the fact I outed...

    On a late summer evening, friends of John Stettin gathered at a bar called Kitty Cohen’s in East Austin to say good-bye. A carrot cake with “Good Luck” written in orange icing softened in the heat, but as far as they were concerned, the occasion was his birthday. “You can’t say, ‘Happy going away!’” said Jeff, his best friend, greeting him with a hug. “We’re just not happy. We’re all very sad about it.” Good-bye parties are inherently not that fun. They’re even less fun when they’re driven by a far-right takeover of the state government. “Tell him he can’t...

    Today the NY Times published a surprisingly interesting story about the current state of academia. The focus is one professor at NYU, Maitland Jones, who has long been considered one of the top professors in the field of organic chemistry. Jones taught at Princeton until 2007 and then moved to NYU where he had a year-to-year contract. His textbook on the subject is now in its fifth edition. But this year Jones was fired after a group of about 80 students started a petition claiming his class was too hard.…last spring, as the campus emerged from pandemic restrictions, 82 of...
  • Gender activists push to bar anthropologists from identifying human remains as ‘male’ or ‘female’

    As soon as ancient human remains are excavated, archaeologists begin the work of determining a number of traits about the individual, including age, race and gender. But a new school of thought within archaeology is pushing scientists to think twice about assigning gender to ancient human remains. It is possible to determine whether a skeleton is from a biological male or female using objective observations based on the size and shape of the bones. Criminal forensic detectives, for example, do it frequently in their line of work. But gender activists argue scientists cannot know how an ancient individual identified themselves....

    It’s been a rough couple of weeks for students at Yale Law School, who are responding to news that the Supreme Court may overturn Roe v. Wade with calls to accost their conservative classmates through "unrelenting daily confrontation" and toss the Constitution by the wayside.Members of the law school’s conservative Federalist Society, first year law student Shyamala Ramakrishna said in an Instagram post, are "conspirators in the Christo-fascist political takeover we all seem to be posting frantically about." Why, she asked, are they still "coming to our parties" and "laughing in the library" without "unrelenting daily confrontation?"Instagram post by law...

    Twitter employees have reportedly struggled with the news that the company is on the verge of being acquired by Tesla CEO Elon Musk with some of them too "shocked" to speak over the billionaire’s plans to promote freedom of speech. Several Twitter employees expressed serious concerns and fear over Musk’s $44 billion acquisition of the company including a prominent worry that Musk would undo censorship mechanisms they had worked to implement over the years, The Washington Post reported Monday.

    Following reports that Elon Musk may be nearing a deal with the Twitter board to buy the company, leftist “verified” accounts on the platform once again went into meltdown mode at the prospect of the Musk, the self-described free speech absolutist, taking over. “Leaving Twitter” began to trend shortly after the reports of Musk-Twitter talks. Observers quickly noted the similarity in sentiment to loud declarations from prominent leftists that they would move to Canada if Donald Trump won the election in 2016 (few, if any, did).
