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

Published

on

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.

Brooklyn Bridge Shut Down by Anti-Vax First Responders’ Protest

Is the liberal left paying attention yet?

Published

on

For many on the left side of the aisle, there appears to be a false yet pervasive stereotype of the anti-vaccine crowd.  They see the un-inoculated as an amalgam of wild, unkempt Americans clutching their guns and gadsden flags, mixed in with a few of the holistic backwoods types who use homemade deodorant as well.

This is because the left can only see the right as inferior to them, and this gross oversimplification of the issue helps them to process the situation at a level of intensity that suits their cognitive capacity.

But they are wrong, and this ugly characterization is one of the most potent reasons for America’s current political divide.

In fact, the anti-vaccine movement is a highly diverse one, embodied by Americans from all walks of life, including a vast number of fist responders and healthcare workers, who are, by definition, some of the folks at the highest risk for coming into contact with COVID-19.

They, along with others, made their voices heard in New York City on Monday.

New York City municipal employees are marching across the Brooklyn Bridge Monday against the COVID-19 vaccine mandate.

The protest, which is set to end in front of City Hall on the Manhattan side of the bridge, is billed as an anti-mandate protest on behalf of nearly 50,000 NYC employees who have yet to be vaccinated with a deadline just days away.

Traffic is shut down on the Brooklyn Bridge into Manhattan as of 11:49 a.m., according to police.

The scene was captured by a great many social media users.

How the left is going to spin this is still a mystery, but there is no doubt that they’re going to try.

Facebook Leak Demonstrates Social Network’s Brazen Depravity

More trouble has arrived for the social media leviathan.

Published

on

The jig appears to be up over at Facebook, as a number of damaging revelations about the social media giant continue to make headlines.

Most damning, of course, is the fact that Facebook routinely put their profits ahead of user safety, as first noted by a prominent whistleblower during her testimony in front of Congress.

Now, with a massive trove of leaked documents to bolster the case, Facebook appears to be headed toward disaster.

Facebook has long been accused of playing favorites on multiple sides of the political spectrum, and it’s now clear just how much of that uproar extends to the company’s ranks. A Wall Street Journal report based on internal Facebook documents shows the social network’s leaders and staff have reportedly clashed numerous times over its approach to conservative content, particularly from outlets like Breitbart. Rank-and-file employees have accused Facebook of making “special exceptions” from policies for right-wing outlets, while senior-level staff warned of potential pitfalls.

And also:

Workers argued that Facebook kept Breitbart in a second tier of the News Tab, a section meant to focus on reliable news, despite very low trust and quality scores as well as misinformation violations. Facebook was not only making exceptions, one employee said, but “explicitly” endorsing outlets like this by including them as trusted partners. Staff claimed Facebook was “scared of political backlash” if it enforced policies equally, and believed the site let conservative influencers Diamond and Silk lobby fact checkers to avoid punishment for spreading misinformation.

But it gets worse:

Higher-ups countered with justifications for those decisions. They argued that booting a news outlet for trust scores would risk booting more mainstream outlets like CNN, for instance. When staff asked Facebook to intervene over Breitbart‘s alleged attempts to dodge sites’ advertising blocks, a director said Facebook had to resist the urge and “rely on our principles and policies.”

Other messages from within the company appeared to directly attack Mark Zuckerberg and other high level decision makers over their wanton disregard for safety in pursuit of profits.
