The Gresham-Barlow School District (GBSD) in Oregon will vote on whether to change its flag display policy on May 27, pending legal review by the Oregon School Boards Association. If approved, all schools in this district in a suburb of Portland could display a Black Lives Matter (BLM) flag and a Progressive Pride flag, on school grounds and in all classrooms, along with the statutorily required American flag, Oregon flag, and POW/MIA flag.

We have covered for a decade the campus shout-downs and shut-downs of speakers, the incessant thought policing, the political correctness run amok, and in recent years, the cancel culture and repression of free expression. We also have documented how the campus culture has migrated to the broader culture, reflected in Big Tech censorship and repression.

New York Magazine has performed what Rush might call a 'random act of journalism' by taking a deep dive on the transformation of the NY Times into both a paper whose growth was fueled by resistance to Trump, and fundamentally transformed internally by young "insurrectionist" staffers from outside the traditional journalism pipeline.

Bari Weiss is a liberal columnist who just resigned from the NY Times. Her resignation letter has gone viral. Weiss never was a good fit at the NY Times, just as Bret Stephens isn't, because she is pro-Israel and speaks out against anti-Semitism at a paper that relentlessly pushes the false narrative of Palestinians as victims and Jews as oppressors in Israel and elsewhere. Those pro-Israel pro-Jewish stances were at the core of the hostility to her (in my opinion), or as she puts it in her resignation letter:

Against the backdrop of a rising tide of anti-Semitic incidents across the country and the failure of many mainstream Jewish organizations to condemn anti-Semitism emanating from the left, communities of color, or Islamists, I've joined a group of Jewish-American millennials in founding a brand-new non-profit organization called HaShevet. It is my honor to serve on HaShevet's founding board of directors with a cadre of brilliant, ambitious, and passionate Jewish leaders.
