Still, the First Amendment protects that right!

There’s ignorant and then there’s just plain over-the-moon absurd. This professor from Chico State University managed to hit all the wrong buttons and firmly placed herself atop the list of most ridiculous people of 2019. Congrats! Check it out, via Breitbart:

A professor at Chico State (CSU, Chico) referred to President Donald Trump and the Republican Party as “poison,” and suggested that she and other professors use the “immense privilege” they have as “tenured faculty” to protect students who are offended by their classmates exercising their First Amendment rights. The instructor told Breitbart News that the First Amendment allowing the school’s College Republicans to “voice their support for Trump and — the Republican Party” is “intensely hurtful” to many students on campus.

Professor Lindsay Briggs, who without question doesn’t understand what the First Amendment is about, whined “The First Amendment protects our Republican Club students to voice their support for Trump and their support of the Republican Party. That is intensely hurtful to many of our students on campus.

Chico State — you have homework to do over break. Time to do an honest personal inventory and decide where you will stand as things escalate towards elections.

Briggs is, well, something else…

Just being a leech and drinking my socialist power juice while all these hardworking people show me how not poisonous they are by calling me names on the internet. Just another day in my glamorous life!

I needed a folder to keep all my love notes in 💕

The 1st week of class, I own my biases & tell students what they are. That way they can figure out for themselves if they agree with me or not. I tell them my classes build critical thinking skills & they are free to think whatever they want as long as they have thought it out.

So unlike many people’s presumptions, my classroom is a place to learn your own values and practice speaking up for your ideas. Hardly the indoctrination factory people seem to think it is. But then, you’d have to go deeper than tired attack points to understand that. Pity.

I don’t adhere to arbitrary codes of social conduct such a “politeness” & “being ladylike” or “being ashamed of my actions.” If that’s what you’re here to say, it won’t have an impact. And unlike Michelle Obama, I don’t go high because you go low. I will go lower. See above.

I was not born to be pleasing to others. I have an equal number of people who dislike me on the left and the right. My truth and justice don’t waver for popularity points. Love me, hate me, it doesn’t matter to me. It’s called self esteem and radical love of self. Try it.

Apple Backs Down, Will Allow Parler Back on App Store

The news is seen as a major boost for the First Amendment.

Free speech is a fickle thing, and precious too.  If we’re not careful, it can be stripped away but those who hide behind the claim that a “private” company can limit your personal freedoms. Twitter, Facebook, and other social media platforms are almost always the culprits here, bending the algorithmic reach of those with whom they disagree. Enter Parler:  A free speech app where only the bare legal minimum of content would be moderated. The platform became incredibly popular with an astonishing swiftness, but soon faced trouble from companies who had previously aligned themselves with Facebook and Twitter’s more controlling stance. Apple, who had previously booted Parler from its App Store, has now relented to the Constitution. Apple has approved Parler’s return to the iOS app store following improvements the social media company made to better detect and moderate hate speech and incitement, according to a letter the iPhone maker sent to Congress on Monday. The decision clears the way for Parler, an app popular with conservatives including some members of the far right, to be downloaded once again on Apple devices. The letter — addressed to Sen. Mike Lee and Rep. Ken Buck and obtained by CNN — explained that since the app was removed from Apple’s platform in January for violations of its policies, Parler “has proposed updates to its app and the app’s content moderation practices.” On April 14, Apple’s app review team told Parler that its proposed changes were sufficient, the letter continued. Now, all Parler needs to do is to flip the switch. The news is seen as a major boost for the First Amendment.

WATCH: NC Man Slings Rabid Bobcat Across His Front Yard

WOW!

For many North Carolinians, neighborhood living brings with it the peace of mind that the most invasive animals you might have to deal with are squirrels who are trying to rest in your attic, or raccoons hoping to fatten up from your trash can.  The Tar Heel state has some bears, sure, but they’re not often the pestering or dangerous type like you might see in the Pacific Northwest or parts of California. But one man this week got up close and personal with a seriously frightening creature this week, after it lunged at his wife from underneath their car. A disturbing video captures the moment a rabid bobcat attacks a North Carolina woman—and the moment her husband grabs it off her and throws it through the air. Kristi and Happy Wade of Burgaw were walking to their SUV to take their cat to the vet the morning of April 9 when the growling animal ran across the street and attacked, WIS-TVreports. After throwing it several feet, Happy Wade eventually shot it after it ran into the couple’s garage and then continued to charge, ABC 11 reports. A neighbor who had been jogging by at the time stopped to help and called 911. Video of the incident is simply unbelievable. https://twitter.com/nojumper/status/1383145940807163904?s=20 The bobcat was injured by Wade and later euthanized by local law enforcement.  An autopsy revealed that the animal was indeed rabid, and the family has been undergoing treatment for their numerous bite wounds.
