    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). Charles Blow, a New York Times columnist who describes Trump supporters as “angry white...

The Harvard University Police Department's substation at the Mather House was closed in February because students felt it created an intimidating environment, according to the Harvard Crimson.... ..."The real effect that the presence of the HUPD substation has on the Mather community is simply a violent, visual intimidation tactic that students are forced to see every time they enter the house," Taylor said....Taylor also reached out to the house's faculty deans regarding concerns that armed Harvard...

    LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) — Officials at Walt Disney World said Friday that a performance by a visiting Texas high school drill team that used American Indian stereotypes, including chants of “scalp them,” doesn’t reflect the Florida resort’s values. The performance this week in the Magic Kingdom by the “Indianettes” drill team from Port Neches-Grove High School “did not reflect our core values, and we regret it took place,” Disney spokeswoman Jacquee Wahler said in an emailed statement. An audition tape that the school had provided in order to be selected to perform at the theme park resort was...

    VIDEOCongratulations to the Freedom Convoy truckers in Ottawa! You caused a ruling elite on the city council who sneered at you for being a "small fringe minority" with "unacceptable views" to turn into a wailing bunch of blubbering mental cases, including one councilman who actually did break out crying, as you can see in this video. You can see here segments of the Ottawa City Council meeting on February 16, 2022 in which the council members were reduced to bitterly hurling invective at each other and the mayor in the midst of a collective nervous meltdown led prominently by Diane...

    Andrew Breibart wrote that politics is downstream from culture. So what happened to American culture? We used to be the land of the free and the home of the brave. Now we are the land of Helicopter Parents, Trigger Warnings, and Snowflakes. Once upon a time America was barbarian and badass compared to Western Europe. We had football, guns, dangerous hillbillies, and a president who joked about bombing the Soviet Union. They had soccer, bicycles, coffee-swilling philosophers, and calls for Accommodation. The image is reversing. We still have our guns, and our aging motorcycle gangs. But we also have our...

    Dozens of students at the University of Nevada-Reno were spotted marching through campus demanding the reinstatement of the recently abandoned mask mandate in the state. "Reinstate, mask mandate!" dozens of students chanted repeatedly as they marched across campus in Reno, Nevada Monday in a video captured by KRNV reporter Ben Margiott. Margiott added that a petition to reimpose the COVID-19 mask mandate had gathered 1,500 signatures. "As an institution of higher learning, it is a responsibility within our educational mission to provide an environment where perspectives and experiences are shared safely, with respect and with a thorough understanding of points...

    It would hit Alina Black at Trader Joe’s, a wave of guilt and shame that made her skin crawl. Something as simple as nuts. They came wrapped in plastic, often in layers of it, that she imagined leaving her house and traveling to a landfill, where it would remain through her lifetime and the lifetime of her children. She longed, really longed, to make less of a mark on the earth. At the age of 37, these conflicting forces were slowly closing on her, like a set of jaws. In the early-morning hours, after nursing the baby, she would slip...
  • Georgetown Students Reportedly Request Place to ‘Cry’ as Dean Addresses Ilya Shapiro’s SCOTUS Tweets

    Students at the Georgetown University Law Center reportedly requested a place for them to “cry” Monday as the school’s dean addressed the controversy surrounding incoming lecturer Ilya Shapiro. Shapiro, a legal scholar with the libertarian think tank the CATO Institute, is in hot water after he tweeted criticism of President Joe Biden’s commitment to name the first Black woman to the Supreme Court. Biden made the promise during his presidential campaign, but the opportunity to honor it was presented last week when Associate Justice Stephen Breyer announced he was stepping down. Biden quickly confirmed the next jurist on the high...

    Wokeness has a reputation for intolerance. That reputation has made some people intolerant of the woke. At least one Floridian has resorted to what could be construed as civil disobedience to voice disdain over the influx of New Yorkers into a Palm Beach neighborhood. A number of cars with New York license plates found notes on their car windows instructing them to move someplace else if they identify with the political left, according to the New York Post. Typed in capital letters, the message read, “If you are one of those ‘woke’ people -- leave Florida. You will be happier...

    For Scott Margot, the promised phone call never came. For Paul Scherwin, the hiring manager never showed up. For Matt Murphy, the hours just evaporated from his schedule. Each was looking to work during the pandemic in industries that have complained about a shortage of workers and an increase in the trend of "ghosting coasting," where new hires simply vanish without notice. Now, these workers say, businesses are getting a taste of their own medicine. By his telling, Margot did everything right: he schmoozed with a sales and marketing director at a hotel-industry networking event, landed a follow-up interview, and...

    After widespread criticism that drew national attention, Central York School District on Monday night reversed its decision to “ban” a list of diverse books and resources. At the same time, board members say it was all a misunderstanding. The list of books, articles, websites and resources was put together last year and involves dozens of popular books including “The Hate U Give” and “I Am Malala,” according to the York Daily Record. Before Monday’s school board meeting, the newspaper estimated at least 200 parents rallying, saying the ban needed to be overturned. The York Dispatch reported that last November, the...

    The national organization of middle and high school leaders is urging the Biden administration to do more to protect its members from “threats and violence” by parents who disagree with COVID-19 restrictions they put in place. In a call for support, the National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP) on Thursday said its members have been faced with “hostile community members” because of their policies on “highly charged issues” involving masks, quarantines, and vaccines. The organization cited the confrontation between Teresa M. Hill, the principal of Walden Grove High School in Arizona, and a group of people who wanted to...

    MSNBC “Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough on Thursday reacted to the criticism of Gen. Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, reportedly calling his Chinese counterpart General Li Zuocheng multiple times during the Trump presidency and vowing to warn him ahead of any U.S. military action. Scarborough argued that Republicans are critical of Milley and accusing him of treason because he has read up on Critical Race Theory and taking “steps to defend America” by conducting secret operations behind then-President Donald Trump’s back. He called those Republicans “snowflakes.”

    Ratings for the Olympics are at record lows, and it is no surprise why. Between the anti-American protests of some U.S. athletes, and the empty stands that make the competition feel hollow and flat, Americans are just not catching the Olympic spirit this year. It certainly did not help when Simone Biles, America’s top Olympic gymnast, threw in the towel in the middle of her sport’s biggest competition and on the world’s biggest stage. For America, a country built on hard work, sacrifice, and a “never quit” attitude, Biles’ exit was a slap in the face to the quintessential “grit”...

    No decent, thoughtful human being wants to be accused of racism. Most decent, thoughtful human beings are guilty of racism. Of course, it’s usually unconscious, and it’s often hard to keep track of evolving language and social movements, of phrases in the vernacular that were perfectly acceptable ten years ago but are now taboo (and vice-versa). As writers, albeit pros or fanfic writers, or everyone in between, we use our words as tools, as toys, and sometimes, as weapons. It’s our responsibility to listen to new conversations, to keep abreast of the ever-changing socio-political climate, and above all, to think...
