Conservative Group Creates 9/11 Memorial Posters. University’s Response is Absolutely Appalling.

Published

A conservative group at Ripon College has been informed by a “college bias team” — whatever that is — has deemed their 9/11 memorial posters to be unacceptable as they are offensive to students with a Muslim background.

Never mind how offense a Muslim student’s religion and background might be to someone who lost a loved one during this horrific attack by an Islamic zealot. That’s perfectly acceptable it seems.

The poster from the Young America’s Foundation features a nine-square grid featuring imagery of terrorist attacks carried out by Islamic radicals. Some of the incidents depicted on the poster include images from the 9/11 bombings, an Islamic State beheading, and the USS Cole bombing.

In the center of the grid, text reading “Never Forget” can be seen.

The bias team at Ripon College, a liberal arts college in Ripon, Wisconsin, determined that YAF’s “Never Forget” posters are against the school’s policy — but the conservative group maintains that the imagery on the posters is zeroed in on Islamic terrorism and not targeting Muslims at large.

On Tuesday, members of YAF met with the school’s campus bias team where a campus official reportedly declared that the campaign’s posters zeroed in “relentlessly on one religious organization, one religious group, one religious identity.”

The official purportedly added, “In associating that one religious identity with terrorist attacks, which go back far before 9/11 and after 9/11, creates for some students here an environment which they feel like they are not able to learn.”

The official allegedly noted the posters create an environment in which “students from a Muslim background would feel singled out or harassed.”

Another official stated the posters do not “add” to “the conversation about 9/11, or about the politics of terrorism, or about national security, or responses to it that couldn’t be done easily and more constructive without the poster.”

YAF snagged some audio of the conversation as well.

How sad is it that these young Americans are turning on their country and more or less spitting on the memories of those we lost on that horrific day, simply to appease Muslim students.

Would that same kind of courtesy be extended to posters that offended Christians? We all know the answer to that, don’t we?

We as a society are apt to forget the tragedies that happened in our history, therefore, we need constant reminders on every corner to refresh our memories about the important lessons we should take away from the wickedness and evil that goes down in this world.

Harrowing Tale of Week-Long Bear Attack is a Hoax, Say Investigators

Well this is embarrassing.

It was only a few days ago that the world became familiar with a truly stupendous tale out of America’s last frontier. A man, stranded at a remote cabin in the Alaskan bush, was being haunted and hunted every night by a vicious bear, after being mauled ever so slightly on his first day on site.  His rescuers arrived after a week of these nightly attacks, and only after the stranded man was able to create a plea for help large enough to be seen by the air. The only issue with the story is that the whole thing appears to be made up, at least according to local researchers.  While the story went viral worldwide and more details came to light about the incident, some community members began to express concerns and doubt about the veracity of the tale. The cabin [Richard] Jessee took refuge in, as it turns out, was not his. It belonged to a fellow miner, though Jessee’s cabin sat only a few yards away. “We went out there to the cabin, but we couldn’t find a bear track within 500 feet of the place, but it should have been all torn up, according to his story,” said one anonymous source known to the Nugget. “There’s no hair, no tracks, no scat, nothing.” And also… The Coast Guard crew delivered him to an ambulance in Nome, which took him to Norton Sound Health Regional hospital. “We were told to get a man who had been mauled by a bear,” said Jim West Jr., the Nome Volunteer Fire and Ambulance chief. “He walked off the helicopter and walked into the ambulance. He had no animal bites and wasn’t bleeding.” Local police do admit that the area is known for its bear population, however, and the traumatized Jessee is…

USPS Delivers Defiant Message to White House Regarding Vaccine Mandate

This is a slap in the face to the Biden administration.

Published

According to the Biden administration, trouble is coming, and it will arrive in the form of another prolonged economic downturn and possible lockdowns, if we don’t somehow get this “delta” variant of COVID-19 under control. The issue, according to many medical experts, is that this mutated version of the primary coronavirus pandemic strain, is spreading too rapidly among the unvaccinated, and without a significant number of Americans suddenly deciding to get inoculated in the near future, we may not reach “herd immunity” for months. Now, in an effort to speed up the stagnating vaccination rate, President Joe Biden is set to announce that all federal workers should be vaccinated, or face a grueling COVID testing protocol that was intentionally designed to be uncomfortable. The United States Postal Service isn’t taking the news lying down, however. The influential American Postal Workers Union on Wednesday said, at this point, it opposes a coronavirus vaccine mandate from the Biden administration but encouraged workers to voluntarily take the jabs. “While the APWU leadership continues to encourage postal workers to voluntarily get vaccinated, it is not the role of the federal government to mandate vaccinations for the employees we represent,” the union said in a statement obtained by Fox News. The union did not immediately respond to an after-hours email from Fox News. The union said in the statement that the safety of its workers is “of paramount importance” but “at this time the APWU opposes the mandating of COVID-19 vaccinations.” The Biden administration’s mandate will not be 100% iron clad according to sources familiar with the matter, but, rather, would be an incredibly strong suggestion with some terribly annoying hoops to jump through to abstain.
