A federal court ruled Friday that the University of Iowa blatantly violated the U.S. Constitution by deregistering a Christian student club over its Bible-based club rules.

The judges of the 8th Circuit Court of Appeals went on to say that the university’s illegal actions were some of the most obvious examples of discrimination they had ever seen.

The court unanimously sided with the InterVarsity Christian Fellowship, who claimed that the school had violated their First Amendment right to freedom of religion. InterVarsity is a group that aids Christian students across the country organize Bible studies, prayer circles, and other Christian activities.

But in 2018, the school canceled all religious clubs because some anti-American leftist had complained that the clubs had rules requiring members to follow their religious tenets to remain members in good standing.

While shutting the religious groups down, the university cited its Human Rights Policy, which mandates that all student groups not differentiate on the basis of race, sexual orientation, gender identity, and the like.

In the court’s ruling, the judges said they were “hard-pressed to find a clearer example of viewpoint discrimination” than the actions taken against InterVarsity.

“What the University did here was clearly unconstitutional,” the court added. “It targeted religious groups for differential treatment under the Human Rights Policy — while carving out exemptions and ignoring other violative groups with missions [the University] presumably supported. The University and individual defendants turned a blind eye to decades of First Amendment jurisprudence or they proceeded full speed ahead knowing they were violating the law.”

The court also added that the school must understand that it has no immunity from violating the constitutional rights of its students and can be held directly responsible.

An announcer for an Iowa racetrack thrilled the home crowd with a rant against national anthem protesters, but his bosses were less accepting. Video of announcer Lon Oelke’s rant was broadcast live on FloRacing, but once it was posted to social media it went viral. Some were upset over the announcer’s reference to “darker toned skin people.” After complaints filed in, the The Kossuth County Speedway in Algona, Iowa, announced that it had fired the announcer who was a fill-in announcer and not full-time. “It was not OK, and it will not be happening again,” the company said in a statement. “Kossuth County Speedway looks forward to proving to our fans, drivers and crews that we can and will do better.” During his announcement, Oelke told fans that he had a public service announcement. “I’ve got four words for you: Find a different country if you won’t do it,” he said. “Get the hell out of dodge!” He went on to slam the NFL. “Now they’re gonna have another national anthem, for those folks, I guess the darker toned skin color, I’ll just say, Blacks,” Oelke added. “They want a different national anthem and the NFL is thinking about doing it,” he said. “So, I just say shut the TVs off and let them play in front of nobody.” https://youtu.be/5GeJkeXW6pI Follow Warner Todd Huston on Facebook at: facebook.com/Warner.Todd.Huston.

A new conservative children’s book is looking to keep the woke out of story time with a new anti-transgender theme. Brae Books has published its new book for the kiddos entitled, Elephants are Not Birds, that tells kids that you are what you are biologically. According to the website, Brave Books offers parents “a conservative alternative to the current cultural activism that our children are being taught in schools, in the entertainment they watch and the books they read.” Company CEO Trent Talbot said he was driven to create the new book line when he noticed that “that there is a real war going on for the hearts and minds of our kids. And everywhere I looked was propaganda,” the New York Post reported. Per the paper: An ophthalmologist by trade, Talbot pointed to Ibram X. Kendi’s picture book, “Antiracist Baby,” which urges parents and kids to “make equity a reality,” as content that needs a counterpoint. “Once my eyes were open I was seeing it everywhere and I couldn’t unsee it,” Talbot said. “I thought there was a need for books that could help parents teach the values they hold dear.” Brave Books’ first offering is called “Elephants are Not Birds,” the story of an elephant named Kevin who likes to sing, and then is convinced by a vulture — named Culture — that he warbles so well, he must actually be a bird. Brave Books also made the decision to to refuse to do business with Amazon.com and will sell their wares only on their website. The Post added: Other planned books include, “The Island of Free Ice Cream” by former OAN anchor Jack Posobiec, which will tackle Communism. The company is also courting Congressman Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas), to write “Fame, Blame, and the Raft of Shame” about…
