Alabama High School Institutes Thought Control, Bans Conservative Book List

Alabama teacher Gene Ponder is clearly well-versed in conservative and libertarian knowledge, and he wanted to impart that knowledge onto his students. A long-time Republican activist, he assigned a reading list of books to his students that immediately caused a great deal of controversy. Ponder assigned a list of books for his AP Government/Economics students including “Liberty and Tyranny: A Conservative Manifesto,” “End the Fed,” “No They Can’t: Why Government Fails-But Individuals Succeed,” “Great Myths of the Great Depression,” and “The County Sheriff: America’s Last Hope.” The good cross-section of libertarian and conservative views represented in the list was meant to counterbalance the liberal indoctrination known to dominate public school curricula. Spanish Fort High School brass was not pleased by Ponder’s actions, and immediately forced him to pull the list. Keep Reading

Middle School Student Suspended For Liking An Instagram Airsoft Gun Picture

In recent years, schools have placed a greater emphasis on safety and security. Given the occurrence of school shootings, bomb threats, and other acts of violence, their need to protect students has grown more difficult. Strengthened protocols and heightened security have been an obvious result, as to ensure students cannot be harmed easily and unauthorized individuals cannot simply enter an education facility. While these developments occur, some schools are taking safety and security to extraordinary levels. Instead of protecting the building, their students and administrators, and ensuring a safe environment, they’re seeking to sanitize the thoughts of their students. Recently, a Middle School student was suspended for his activity on Instagram. Now in terms of credible threats, law enforcement has a responsibility to investigate to ensure that any risk can be properly dealt with. If someone threatens to bring a gun to a school and shoot up the student body, there is a responsibility to respond. If an individual threatens harm against an educator, administrator, student or any other individual, there… Keep Reading

Ann Coulter Refuses To Be Silenced After UC-Berkeley Cancels Scheduled Speech

Due to threats of violence from leftist groups, the University of California-Berkeley has canceled Ann Coulter’s speech scheduled for later this month. The hard-right polemicist is unfettered though, and says her speech will go on with or without government permission. UC-Berkeley issued a series of demands required for Coulter to speak on their campus, according to Young Americans for Freedom, the event sponsors. “Coulter, we were informed, would be required to deliver her speech in the afternoon; only students would be allowed to attend; and the speech location would not be announced until close to the event,” Spencer Brown wrote in a YAF article. Coulter complied with all of these demands provided that Oakland police would do their jobs and the University would denounce any violence or disruptions to her speech as intolerable. In response, UC-Berkeley decided to cancel the event completely. “This is as clear-cut a case as it gets that public universities are using taxpayer dollars to shut down conservative speech, while allowing liberal speech only,” Brown… Keep Reading

Denial And Dudgeon In The Millennial Generation

The following may seem a little harsh, but please keep in mind that everything I’m about to write is out of genuine concern for our friends on the left, particularly those of the millennial generation. They say children are our future and with that in mind, I’ve become increasingly concerned about the mental health and well-being of people my age, and even those who are younger. At first glance, it appears as though our liberal friends have lost their collective mind. My first real memory of politics was watching George H. W. Bush mop the floor with Michael Dukakis back in 1988. I was almost 6-years-old, and I’ve been hooked ever since. Throughout the course of the past twenty-eight years I’ve watched the left slowly creep toward the edge of insanity, but never have I seen them take a flying leap into the depths of madness like they have since President Barack Obama took power.
