    The man suspected of murdering a 19-year-old Burger King employee earlier this week ranted about social justice and demanded reparations as police officers escorted him out of an East Harlem police station. Winston Glynn, 30, is accused of murdering 19-year-old Burger King employee Kristal Bayron-Nieves during a robbery in the early hours of Sunday morning. As officers led Glynn out of the police station into a police vehicle, video captured Glynn shouting social justice slogans at an angry crowd who gathered outside the station. Winston Glynn was arrested by “The Greatest Detectives in the World” for the murder of a...

    Just last month, CAIR’s Dallas-Fort-Worth chapter held an event called "In Pursuit of Freedom" at the East Plano Islamic Center in Plano, Texas, calling for Siddiqui’s release, claiming she had been "kidnapped, ripped apart from her children, shot at, renditioned to the U.S., and is currently serving an 86-year prison sentence for a crime she did not commit." On Nov. 18, the CAIR chapter held an online fundraiser for Siddiqui’s defense team. Days earlier, multiple Muslim advocacy groups, including CAIR, American Muslims for Palestine (AMP), the Islamic Circle of North America Council for Social Justice (ICNA-CSJ), and the Muslim American...

    In the midst of the intense national debate about transgender rights, transgender athletes, and transgender children, it is all too easy to lose sight of perhaps the most important issue of all. Specifically, if you support the medical transitioning of children, you are potentially supporting their chemical castration. What an absolute outrage. How dare any person of conscience advocate for this? Are you familiar with the name Alan Turing? He was a brilliant, British mathematician and computer pioneer best known for his life-saving work during World War II. At that time, “Turing played a crucial role in cracking intercepted coded...

    Must See Video! Senator John Kennedy asked a Biden nominee whether she would forgive a criminal act in the name of social justice. She simply would not answer. Mediaite reported: During a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on Wednesday, Kennedy repeatedly asked law professor Anne Traum, a nominee for the U.S. District Court for the District of Nevada, over the span of just over five minutes whether criminal acts should be forgiven “in the name of social justice.”

    "How many fingers, Winston?" ---O'Brien in 1984Media figures often love to profess their "objectivity." However, as with Chuck Todd who once proclaimed he was a mere "referee," few believe that laughable claim. In fact, a major journalism foundation, the Nieman Foundation for Journalism at Harvard University via its NeimanLab published a plea for ditching objectivity in favor of "solidarity for social justice." The author is Dr. Anita Varma, assistant professor in the School of Journalism and Media at the University of Texas at Austin.Here is Varma's disdain for objectivity in favor of the social justice greater good which sounds as...

    While documenting my former high school’s attempt to indoctrinate me with critical race theory six years ago, I remarked that now, several years later, “the situation has undoubtedly worsened.” Worsened it has. Now, Campbell Union High School District has promoted more than 100 “equity resources” to students and staff, including a document that taught students how to put a curse on those who say “all lives matter.”Colorblindness, Cops, and CursesThe page serves as a vast library for CRT resources and features 60 different links, including a Google Drive folder with 45 different documents.

    My daughter has a nice little house in a safe neighborhood in the San Fernando Valley. Until recently she never really had to worry about crime or her personal safety. But now suburban places like hers in Northern California and Southern California are being hit by a crime wave that has never hit them before. As you’ve seen on national TV, “smash-and-grab” gangs are hitting shopping malls like the one near her – the same one I often take my granddaughters to. And now there are even young thugs who’ll follow you home from the mall and break into your...

    American Mind ^ | 10/6/21 | Thomas D. Klingenstein
    This excerpt is from Claremont board chairman Thomas D. Klingenstein’s speech, “Winning the Cold Civil War.” In a traditional totalitarian regime, the government uses arbitrary violence to control every aspect of public and private life, all the way down to little league. In America, the government does not control everything. But today, through the power of the purse and the courts, the government influences a lot. And where the government leaves off, the cultural business complex takes over. Education, corporate media, entertainment, big business, especially big tech, are to varying degrees aligned with the Democratic Party, which is now controlled...

    The Lower Manhattan Community School racially segregated its students this week to grapple with the question, “How do our racial identities influence our experiences?” according to the New York Post. “On November 23rd and 24th, 7th and 8th graders will explore the question ‘How do our racial identities influence our experiences?’ in affinity groups,” Principal Shanna Douglas wrote in an email sent to parents. “An affinity group is a group formed around a shared interest.”

    “Hypocrisy is a tribute vice pays to virtue,” observed the 17th century Francois VI, Duc de la Rochefoucauld. Author of Reflections and Moral Maxims, the duke would recognize the hypocrisies manipulating shell games over climate change, Black Lives Matter and indigenous peoples causes. Potentially disastrous global warming is attributed to the greenhouse effect of industrialized—and industrializing—societies’ burning fossil fuels and releasing carbon dioxide. Hence, the drive to “net zero” out use of coal, oil and natural gas. These are the fuels that produce the electricity keeping modern societies warm in winter, cool in summer and able to travel near and...

    Peloton has been accused of blocking people from using the hashtag “LetsGoBrandon” on its fitness platforms because it doesn’t meet its guidelines. The fitness equipment company has been sending users an error message when they try to connect with others on the Peloton App using the tag, according to screenshots published by PJ Media on Wednesday. The phrase has become an anti-President Biden rallying cry in recent weeks, ever since an NBC reporter interviewing NASCAR driver Brandon Brown on Oct. 2 mistook a vulgar chant from the crowd — “F–k Joe Biden” — as “Let’s go, Brandon.” As the phrase...

    I revered Dr. King. Still do. Fusing Christian thought with Gandhi’s tactic of “satyagraha,” King immortalized the idea that regular people could peacefully lock arms in civil disobedience to abolish bad laws. Jim Crow laws, in his case. In a 1957 speech, King quoted Faust author Johann Wolfgang von Goethe about the tragedy of the human condition: “There’s enough stuff in me to make both a gentleman and a rogue,” he said, paraphrasing Goethe’s “Two souls live in me, alas, irreconcilable with one another.” King quoted Plato’s comparison of man’s “struggle within” to a charioteer with “two headstrong horses, each...

    A racial reckoning began years ago for the Guilford (Connecticut) school system, first with an episode in which a student wore blackface makeup to a home football game and then a fraught debate over the elimination of its mascot, the Indians. After the killing of George Floyd, district leaders announced they were doubling down on efforts to address social justice and racism in schools and teaching materials. But an organized pushback in the overwhelmingly white community began last year with a petition for the superintendent’s removal. This summer, conservative activists won the GOP’s endorsement for school board, knocking out three...

    Far-left Democrats were dealt a big blow as former Ohio state Sen. Nina Turner, co-chair of Bernie Sanders’ 2020 presidential campaign, was defeated by Cuyahoga County Councilwoman Shontel Brown in a much-anticipated special US House primary election. With 96.5 percent of precincts reporting, Brown led Turner by 4,380 votes out of more than 71,000 votes cast. Turner conceded the race soon after 10 p.m. local time, telling supports: “On this night, we will not cross the river.” The contest in Ohio’s 11th District, a deep-blue constituency that includes most of Cleveland, parts of Akron and several majority-black precincts in between...

    Pope Francis released a video message advocating more left-wing politics on Saturday, in the latest attempt by the Vatican to reassure the world that Catholicism is on the side of social justice. The pope praised deceased felon George Floyd as a “Good Samaritan,” and provided a moral endorsement of violent BLM rioters. “Do you know what comes to mind now when, together with popular movements, I think of the Good Samaritan?” the Pope declared. “Do you know what comes to mind? The protests over the death of George Floyd. It is clear that this type of reaction against social, racial...

    What is the greatest threat to educating children today? Is it COVID-19, or ignorance? I'm going for number two. There is growing evidence to back me up. In August, Oregon Governor Kate Brown privately signed a bill ending a requirement that high school students prove they are proficient in writing, reading, and math before graduating. The law lasts for three years. The pandemic was blamed for students falling behind, but the real motive was revealed by the governor's spokesman, Charles Boyle, who said existing standards failed students who don't test well and that new standards would aid the state's "Black,...

    In the movie “The War of the Roses,” the fighting couple played by Michael Douglas and Kathleen Turner end up dying while fighting with each other through a divorce. As they both lay there dying after falling from a chandelier (no spoiler alert, there’s a good chance the movie is older than you are and if you haven’t seen it by now, that’s on you), the hand of Douglas is laying on Turner. Douglas is gone already, and Turner’s last act on this Earth is to flick his hand off of her in disgust that he was touching her. Romancing...

    Two super liberal Catholics in very important positions met this weekend in Rome, Italy. On Saturday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) met with Pope Francis at the Vatican. Photos and videos showed the Pope warmly greeting Pelosi and her husband at his official residence. This encounter will be followed by the Pope meeting with another liberal Catholic, resident Joe Biden, in late October. The Pope met with the Speaker and her husband in the immediate aftermath of a Fox News investigation that showed the couple had accumulated a net worth of $315 million by 2020, with a shocking increase of...
