"So class, have we all learned the lesson for today? Making a movie in which the President is killed is fine. In fact, it is art and the highest form of free speech. As long as he is a Republican, of course. Doing the same for someone who is methodically starving his own people is not." "But professor, what about when Charlie Chaplin did the movie making fun of Hitler? The Little Dictator, wasn't it?" "That was before we knew better. Now, we are much more enlightened."

Should Profiling Be Banned?

Once again the voice of reason cuts through the BS. It was not that long ago that the Israeli's were target number one for airline hijackings. They profile, among other things, and their success has been unequaled anywhere. We, on the other hand, insist on giving 75-year-old Japanese couples pat downs for fear of "offending" muslims. Muslims should be offended. Offended by their co-religionists who are trying to take things back to the 8th century. Similarly, blacks should be offended that all to many of their young men are engaged in criminal activities.
Orwellian, indeed. From the Newspeak Dictionary... Diversity: What is left after all non-leftist practices, thoughts, words, images and beliefs are taken away.

"Soon, even the "rape advocates" who championed Jackie's courage in speaking out were expressing regret that her story kept changing." Regret? It should have been outrage. Trying to find even the smallest of silver linings in this cloud, it appears that at least UVa didn't lead the charge for conviction a la Duke in the fabricated lacrosse rape scandal.
We've all heard the saying: Those what can, do. Those who can't, teach. Add to that: Those who can't teach become journalists.
Could it be that the lefty-liberal-progressive pendulum has finally reached the end of its swing, and will start to move back in the other direction? One certainly hopes so.
Have no fear, this administration is hard at work to make sure that this will no longer be true in the future.

So it is not okay for any clergy to comment negatively on anything the left is doing, (violation of the misused term "separation of church and state", which was originally defined as protecting the church FROM the state), it is okay for liberal clergy members to actually run for President? (a la Jesse Jackson)

"Educators want to teach students skills that are transferable across specific jobs, and prepare them for civic engagement, and lifelong learning." Unfortunately, many, or most, educators want to indoctrinate students into their leftist world view where America is the greatest evil and religion is a curse upon humanity that needs to be eradicated. Except Islam, that religion of peace, of course.
Funny that they would link those two, as it is the LGBTQ activists and their fellow leftists who are the real bullies. BTW, those transsexual/transgender folks I know personally do NOT identify with homosexuals. They consider themselves of the sex that their biology unfortunately does not match, and mostly want to be left alone to pursue their dreams for inner peace and wholeness once their transition is complete.
