Are you a pro-life student? You might want to prepare to get punched, have your signs destroyed, and your chalk erased.
The first weekend of December marked the latest instance of left-wing intolerance to pro-life student demonstrators. Fifteen-year-old pro-life student Purity Thomas was praying and advising women in front of a Planned Parenthood when she was punched in the face, reported The Daily Caller.
If that’s not shocking enough, the police didn’t arrest this criminal. Now, Thomas knows who punched her but “she was not disclosing the identity of her assailant because the woman had just had an abortion and she wants her to heal instead of receive harassment.”
“I feel super sorry for her and I want her to know that we’re not violent, we actually care about her,” said Thomas. “Being punched was nothing compared to what those babies are feeling when they are aborted…and honestly, I would take a million punches if it saved one child.”
Texas State University student Ian Ramos kicked and punched in pro-life signs on campus. He stated the signs did not constitute free speech, which is a tad surprising for a history and government student. Ramos is pursuing a teaching certification, as of April 2017.
California State University, Fresno professor Gregory Thatcher erased pro-life chalking on campus, even after a student told him she had gotten permission to chalk in the vicinity. Thatcher will participate in First Amendment training and has to pay $17,000 for a court settlement, but Thatcher’s insurance company will be paying the fee and the professor “did not, in any way, admit to any wrongdoing.” Ramos, who destroyed the signs, received no punishment, and is unrepentant, saying he would do it again. Welcome to 21st century universities, where exercising free speech has its consequences, but prevent it, and you’ll be A-OK.
Student Confesses Microaggressions For 22-Page Essay
California State University, Monterey Bay student Erika A. Perez Montes is queer, part of the “Latinx” community, and wrote a senior Capstone project on microaggressions in the LGBTQ+ community, reported The Daily Caller News Foundation.
The abstract says “This autoethnography is about different points in my life where I committed microaggressions towards the LGBTQ+ community specific to diffdierent genders, sexual orientations and/or how people in the community present themselves.”
As though the term “microaggression” weren’t enough by itself, Erika divides it into three categories: microinvalidations, microinsults, and microassaults. I’m guessing her paper would be a macroassault on all of our intelligences. So for her first microaggression, she apparently took a picture of her friend’s “goofy” smile and put it on Facebook with the caption “haha, look at this faggots [sic] weird ass [sic] smile.”
She says “At the time I did not think anything of it. I can also recall that I said the word ‘faggot’ a lot as a term of endearment, even though now I don’t think there’s anything endearing about it….A lot my ‘friends’ at the time said that word and somehow I adopted it. I can’t say that word without doing a big gulp before I say it or even type it now.”
Erika proceeds to confess that she assigned a gender to a drag queen and unfairly made distinctions between gay and “too gay.” And you know, okay, that’s great to hear, Erika, but I’m not your friend and I’m not your priest. This is like me writing an academic paper on how I, a schizophrenic, only flicked the light switch on and off 19 times before bed instead of 20 times. I’m someone who wants to learn something from your work, something other than your missteps in being nice to others or adhering to paranoid leftist dogma.
‘Free Palestine, You F**ks’ Scrawled On Jewish Group’s Sign
If, in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, the Israelis are really the hateful ones, why is it that in Israel, terrorist groups like Hamas claim so man y o f the Palestinians killed and then in the West, not letting the other side speak is something done exclusively BY pro-Palestinian students TO pro-Israel students? Oh and then there’s also the vandalism, like today’s story.
If you took a trip to the University of Oregon last week, you might’ve run across this Jewish Hillel group’s sign, which was defaced with “Free Palestine, you fucks,” as The Algemeiner reported, what appears to be the number 21, something illegible, and then what looks like “fuck your high horse”? Honestly, isn’t the whole point of graffiti to communicate a message? I mean you can have illegal, but still really beautiful graffiti sometimes in the city, but this is just lazy.
Anyway, the school’s student life VP Kevin Marbury called the vandalism “an unacceptable violation [of] our university values” and said “anti-Semitism and other forms of hate have no place at the University of Oregon.”
The student senate passed a resolution supporting the boycott, divest, sanction movement, which calls on schools to stop doing business with companies like HP and Boeing that support Israel. But the administration wasn’t quite on board. University of Oregon President Michael Schill said “to many Jewish people, myself included, the BDS movement not only seeks to criticize the policies of the current Israeli government, but also calls into question the very right of the State of Israel to exist.”
Prof Has No Sympathy For Vandalized Republican Property
City University of New York professor Angus Johnston commented on a vandal who threw bricks into the office of the Nebraska Republican Party, causing $1,200 in damage, according to The Daily Caller News Foundation. He said “police are looking to question a giant cartoon kitty cat” and then “A giant REPUBLICAN kitty cat, given the glass spray pattern.” Ok so sure, the hole left by the bricks did resemble a cat, but why a Republican cat, unless you’re suggesting this was a hoax? If so, I’ve got news for you, Angus: one side of the political spectrum is infamous for making hoaxes and it’s not the right.
The professor then went on to post what appeared to be a text message exchange he had with a friend. “Pretty amazing that a GOP window was smashed and Democrats didn’t start a GoFundMe in seconds,” the dude says to Angus. “Honestly the most hopeful sign I’ve seen in months,” the professor replies, captioning the tweet with #goodnewsthursday.
And I’m sure Angus would feel the exact same way if this happened to a Democrat office because, as we all know, these guys aren’t hypocrites or anything.
“One thing I’ve heard a lot in response to my Antifa tweets is that there’s a bright line between legitimate and illegitimate violence,” the professor says. “If your claim is that a position of strict non-violence is the only way to achieve social change, then I’m gonna need to see your work.” “And if you don’t see a messy, wrenching moral middle ground between “justified” and “unjustified” violence, then let’s keep talking.”
How about this, Angus? If you’re physically attacked, it is justified for you to physically defend yourself. And I emphasize the word “physically” on purpose: ideas that hurt your feelings do not equal physical violence. As for the professor’s desire to “keep talking,” well, that doesn’t really seem to apply to people who don’t share his views. I emailed him for comment. He didn’t email me back.
