Not just ISIS we need to worry about amid refugees, but Assad’s Shabiha and Iran’s agents too.

“Before we let the Left yell more about racism and turn every crisis into an opportunity to demand still more power and more money, I’ve got a novel idea — let’s give competence a try.”

The response to National Review‘s broadside “Against Trump” clarified what the purpose of the opinion journal should be.

LMAO Hurry, SMOD, hurry.

By arguing that publishing peer-reviewed research conflicted with her role as an indigenous scholar, a former law professor has won her bid for a human rights tribunal hearing after losing her job at the University of British Columbia. Lorna June McCue was denied tenure and ultimately dismissed after 11 years at the university in part because of her failure to submit a single piece of peer-reviewed research during that time. McCue has alleged that peer-reviewed research is contrary to indigenous oral traditions and that UBC’s research standard effectively discriminated against her “race, colour, ancestry, place of origin … and sex.”

Yes, every word of this.

Student leaders at the University of Oregon debated removing a quote from Martin Luther King Jr. from its student center, arguing that the quote was not inclusive enough for modern understandings of diversity. Oregon’s Erb Memorial Union, which is currently under renovation, had the following famous King quote on the wall: “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character. I have a dream…”

When the student union considered the question, some students asked, “Does the MLK quote represent us today?” The problem wasn’t so much the message, but the fact that it only focused on racial diversity instead of gender identity…Ironically, the King quote was to the lobby after students complained about another quote. Until 1985, the wall declared the University of Oregon “leader in the quest for the good life for all men.” That was replaced with the King quote after feminists objected to the implication that Oregon only cared about “men.”

Another masterpiece of anti-Israel bias by the NYT. So bad that the editors had to issue a 315-word correction.

From Plato’s bedroom to the modern campus

Huh. So weird. How could that be? It’s almost like he’s a Democrat or something.

History proves that Constitution-hating, fire-breathing fearmongers are not exclusive to any party.

Pathetic. Nude statues at Rome’s Capitoline museum covered up for Rouhani’s meeting with Italian PM.

“What unites them against Trump is that they stand for ideas, rather than for the power and aggrandizement of a single man, which is the essence of Trumpism.”

Excellent news. This debate will actually be watchable and Cruz will get more attention at a critical time. (Also, what a fucking baby. LOL)
