Your Morning Cup of Links

Yeah, we wouldn’t want a prestigious university to be biased towards the best and the brightest. God forbid.

After years of pursuing higher-paying international students and watching in-state enrollment fall, the University of Illinois’ flagship campus shifted course this year, increasing financial aid for students from Illinois but also taking the unusual step of accepting lower test scores…”In thinking about our enrollment, we did ask ourselves, have we raised the bar just a little too high?” said Charles Tucker, vice provost for undergraduate education and innovation. “We always want to attract the best and brightest students here, and we want to provide a great education for them. But, you know, we also asked ourselves, are we biased a little too much that way?”

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

DNC debuts new website to help slow-witted young liberals talk politics with family on Thanksgiving

The takeaway from these sites is that liberals are so cloistered from interaction with conservatives and so insecure in their own basic political beliefs that they actually need to be prepped before the most basic social engagement with the enemy.

Pipe down and eat your turkey, jackholes.

Why the Left’s cry of “we just need more money” is bullshit. It’s about priorities, not budget constraints.

Officials with the Department of Veterans Affairs spent millions of taxpayer dollars promoting the Affordable Care Act to veterans who didn’t even need the coverage, but have dedicated relatively few resources to helping veterans on the agency’s long waiting list get access to their benefits, internal documents show.

“Is that why you’re too afraid to shave that pathetic beard? Because that’s what ISIS wants? Am I othering you right now? Did I carpet bomb your safe space?”

C3PO will offer me voice guidance? Do you want me to drive my car off a bridge?

History is for LOSERS!

Oh look, a Republican who actually scored a win against Obamacare, instead of just yapping and show voting.

I can’t decide if it makes me sad or happy that Britain is even more fucked up than we are.

What a dumb time to be alive

Two Oxford colleges have been drawn into a race row after announcing plans to host summer balls based on The Great Gatsby and New Orleans in the 1920s. Magdalen and Lincoln colleges are facing accusations that the events may upset women and ethnic minorities by reminding them of a time of less equality.

Nice to see a sort of consensus finally emerging that Woodrow Wilson was the worst president and an even worse human being.

This is an execution, plain and simple. Hope the cop goes away for life.

This is brilliant

Given that the progressive elder-children-yet-not-quite-adults you’ll be encountering this Thanksgiving (who I will henceforth refer to as “grownchildren”) will be armed to the teeth with Vox explainers and Obamacare propaganda, I herewith humbly submit these first sketches of a new branch of Lifemanship I call “Thankgivingmanship,” which I define as the gentle art of insulting the stupid without alerting them to the fact that they’ve been insulted at all.

LOL

A man who in 2013 became the face of a movement to portray the U.S. government’s no-fly list as discriminatory against Muslims was arrested earlier this month along with members of his family in Turkey for being part of an Islamic State cell.

“Guys”

LOL. State Department: Iran Deal Is Not ‘Legally Binding’ and Iran Didn’t Sign It

Carson is a good man who doesn’t know what he needs to know. Trump is a scumbag who doesn’t know what he needs to know. Sad that the latter is winning.

Rahm sat on the video for months so he could get re-elected. The protestors in Chicago should take it out on their corrupt politicians and corrupt unions. Leave the people traveling to see their families for Thanksgiving alone.

I think we all saw this coming, did we not?

Where is the liberal rage over the mass shooting in New Orleans? Nowhere, because it was black people shooting black people.

Great. Even the deer are transgender now. smh

What our presidents’ Thanksgiving proclamations tell us about America

Michael Tanner says this Thanksgiving forget Trump and all the other crap going on, and remember that it is still great to be an American.
