The recent incidents at Yale University and U. Missouri of students-gone-wild against open discussion and press freedom have shocked not just conservatives, but also liberals.

The fact that a professor was involved in the silencing has Twitter in a storm:

Just when you thought the “safe spaces” PC-plagued college campuses couldn’t get more ridiculous, Yale students step up to prove you wrong.

Yale’s Intercultural Affairs Council (yes, they have such a thing) sent out an email prior to Halloween asking that students be thoughtful in their costume selection so as not to...

This is the next battlefield, which already has arrived.

As far as the feds are concerned, it is unlawful discrimination if a school provides anything less than full, unrestricted access for male transgender students to areas previously deemed private girls-only areas, such as showers and locker rooms.

As a member of Generation X, I was lucky enough to enjoy Halloween as a child in the 1970’s before progressives began trying to ruin it with politics.

What used to be a fun night of costumes and “trick or treat” with your friends has become the latest casualty of political correctness.

Cornell Sun Faculty Political Donations by dollar pie chart w border

How politically diverse is the Cornell University faculty?

Not very, according to a study done by The Cornell Daily Sun, the student newspaper. By dollar volume, 96.62% of political donations during 2011-2014 went to Democratic candidates or related PACs, and just 2.76% to Republicans or related PACs.

Ithaca College is pretty sensitive to “microaggressions.”

What is a microaggression? Where have you been, under a rock? (I hope that didn’t offend you.)

One of the inventors of the terminology and theory describes it this way:

Microaggressions are the everyday verbal, nonverbal, and environmental slights, snubs, or insults, whether intentional or unintentional, which...

Via KOIN 6 News (h/t American Power):

A local principal sent an 8th grade student home this week for wearing a shirt supporting U.S. troops.

The problem, according to Gresham-Barlow School District [Oregon] officials, was that it had a gun on it.

Now, many are speaking out against the principal’s decision to reprimand the...

I’m glad that I’m late to the story of Ahmed Mohamed, because others have done the work to debunk much of the media narrative of a young tinkerer and inventor wrongly singled out because he is Muslim and abused by police and the school for the crime of “being brown.”

A Wesleyan University student named Bryan Stascavage who writes for the student paper, the Wesleyan Argus, recently penned an op-ed which was critical of the #BlackLivesMatter movement. Since then, all hell has broken loose.

Here’s a sample of Stascavage’s column:

Last weekend, I wrote about Secretary of the Navy Mabus rejecting the Marine Corps study that showed that units with women underperform when compared to all-male units.

This week, the Marine Corps is pushing back and opening up a debate about whether or not Mabus can veto Marine Corps decisions.  The Marine...

Yesterday a Texas teenager, who happens to be a Muslim, brought a homemade clock to school and was arrested because the clock was mistaken for a bomb. Some people are blaming racism but zero tolerance policies are the real problem.

When the world was in an uproar over the killing of Cecil the Lion, we noted that responsible trophy hunting was important to many African economies and could be a responsible conservation tool because it created incentives for local communities not to kill endangered wildlife.

The #BlackLivesMatter movement has a message.

It is a message they are so desperate for you to hear that they have recently shutdown an anniversary celebration of Medicare and Social Security for you to hear it.
