College Vote
"Professor Jones said we get extra credit if we vote for his son for town council - he's running as a Communist"

Arizona Republican. State Rep. Bob Thorpe believes that the college students actually “dilute” the elections, in the districts where they attend school and live.

Sources note that Thorpe is currently offering legislation that would restrict students from using their college addresses to vote, even though they live at that address all year long. While, his district is home to students of the Northern Arizona University, he believes that this action would limit a major left-leaning voter block.

“These students do not influence the elections within their home communities, where their families and neighbors live, but instead they dilute the votes of the local full-time residents within the college communities,” Thorpe told Courthouse News.

The bill calls for an amendment to Arizona’s voter registration rules and require all voters to have a physical address within the state, and an “intent to remain,” at that address, thus limiting college students from voting in districts where they don’t “actually live.”

“A dormitory address or other temporary college or university address may not be used for determining residency … and is deemed to be evidence of a temporary address with intent to return to some other permanent address,” the bill states.

Thorpe had introduced a similar bill, earlier this year, however, it was shot down by Doug Colemen and was refused a hearing in the state’s House Government Committee.

“Just the basic premise of the bill of actually saying that they couldn’t choose where their residence was, even if it was where they were living, I had issues with,” Coleman told Arizona’s Capitol Media Services in January.

Moreover, it was only in January that Thorpe had introduced a bill that barred colleges and public schools from utilizing student activity fees for any political speech, political activity or other political purpose,” and had also introduced a legislation that prevented all schools from teaching courses that focused on “social justice toward a race, gender, religion, political affiliation, social class or other class of people.”

Racial Tensions
"Just remember that all your ancestors were evil, racist, meanies... Class dismissed!"

Judy Morelock, a University of Tennessee Knoxville professor was fired after she shamed a student on social media, for so-called racist behavior.

Kayla Parker, a student at the university stated that Morelock had presented her class, including Parker, a multiple choice quiz. One of the questions, on the quiz read, ““Historical research on African-American families during slavery shows that: A) Family ties weren’t important in African cultures where the slaves’ ancestors originated; consequently, family bonds were never strong among slaves. B) Two-parent families were extremely rare during the slave period. C) Black family bonds were destroyed by the abuses of slave owners, who regularly sold off family members to other slave owners. D) Most slave families were headed by two parents.”

Parker further mentioned that she selected the option C, as her answer, however, it was marked as wrong. Morelock had advised Parker that the correct answer was option D.

To this, Parker sent the professor an email to further clarify her response and to present information backing up her answer.

As per Parker, Morelock went on to disagree with Parker. Moreover, to make matter worse, Morelock posted a version of the Parker’s email on Facebook, where she and her friends took turns discussing Parker’s viewpoint.

“I was shocked,” she wrote. “I knew it was something out of the ordinary when I saw her posting on my Facebook, because I’ve never seen a professor do that.

Parker had indicated that Morelock began “making backhanded comments directed at me.”

“For example,” she wrote, “‘Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to bring the textbook to class today because my bag is full of other texts for a student who requires further evidence on subjects I teach in class.”

Ever since, the comments had gone viral, the school removed Morelock from her position and placed her on a suspension. This did not stop Morelock. Upon her removal, she wrote on Facebook, “A student and her friends posted inflammatory, derogatory, libelous comments on her Facebook page and demeaned my character, honesty, and integrity … Nonetheless, she filed a complaint against me with [the University] administration and they decided she has the right to impugn my character but I had no right to defend myself. Consequently, I’ve been placed on administration leave and will likely be terminated this week.” Morelock was suspended soon after her post.

While Parker insisted that Morelock did not make use of any racial slurs or nicknames, she felt that the way in which Morelock reacted to her correction portrayed “racism.”

“If students can’t raise questions in class, it’s not a thriving, healthy academic institution,” she wrote. “College is supposed to be a place where you can agree and disagree and have intellectual discussions and that’s all I was trying to do.”

People forget that professional comedians spend their life telling jokes and making fun of things and people, but there is one kid at the University of Massachusetts that will never mess with another comedian.

Steven Crowder, and outspoken conservative comedian, took to the stage at an event put on by the school’s Republican Club to tell some jokes and have an open discussion about the topics of the day.

That is when a few protestors decided to start yelling and interfering with the show before the comedian even got a chance to speak. What happened next was pretty epic.

The comedian wasn’t having any of it, and he went off. Here is just a small example of the epic verbal beat down.

“These opinions that you’re yelling out, they’re not even your opinions, they’re your opinions from your gender studies professor and the real reason you pick it is you thought it was your best chance at getting laid. Only to realize that your very glance in the direction of a woman causes a barren womb.”

Here is the video for you to watch for yourselves, but do not watch if you are easily offended. You’ve been warned.

Did he go too far or did say something that those kids needed to hear? Let us know in the comments.

Over the past few months, America’s college campuses have been rocked by politically-correct racial protests.

But now, Yale University–one of the top schools in America–is taking it one step further. It’s students are actively calling to repeal the First Amendment right, all in the name of political correctness.

Political satirist Ami Horowitz went to see just how far Yale students would actually go–and visited campus armed with a fake petition to repeal the First Amendment.

“What we’re calling for is a petition to repeal the First Amendment,” Horowitz told students, on camera. He referenced all parts of the First Amendment: the freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom of assembly, freedom of the press, and, ironically, the freedom of petition.

“I think this is fantastic,” said one signer. “I absolutely agree.”

“I appreciate what you’re trying to do,” said another student, as he signed the petition.

“I think the Constitution should be one big safe space,” said Horowitz, taking a favorite talking point of college protestors. The students he was talking to nodded in approval, as they signed the petition.

“Excellent. Love it,” said another.

“Hurting people’s feelings should not be protected speech,” told Horowitz to another student–who quickly agreed with him.

“You shouldn’t be exposed to things you don’t want to hear,” said Horowitz to yet another student–who also agreed with him too.

Overall, Horowitz’s collected 50 signatures from Yale students in less than an hour–roughly one signature per minute. So it’s clear that there was quite a bit of support for his phony “cause.”

Yale is one of the top universities in the nation–and has been rocked by protests, after students took offense with a professor suggesting that the administration should not ban “offensive” Halloween costumes.

And it’s clear that some of the best and brightest future leaders in America would rather not be offended than recognize fundamental rights.

Over the past few years, colleges have been on a runaway train to politically-correct Crazytown–and even Barack Obama is fed up with it.

At a town hall meeting on college affordability, Obama responded to a question about Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson’s proposal that federal funding gets cut off to schools with a political bias.

Obama disagrees with Carson’s proposals, essentially saying that having government decide what can be taught at college campuses essentially just creates more censorship on the free exchange of ideas. “That might work in the Soviet Union, but that doesn’t work here,” he said. “That’s not who we are.”

Fair enough.

But the liberal President took it one step further, saying that, while the government shouldn’t be involved in deciding what gets taught, liberal college students need to stop expecting to have their insular world views coddled.

“Sometimes there are folks on college campuses who are liberal, and maybe even agree with me on a bunch of issues, who sometimes aren’t listening to the other side, and that’s a problem too,” Obama explained.

“I’ve heard some college campuses where they don’t want to have a guest speaker who is too conservative or they don’t want to read a book if it has language that is offensive to African-Americans or somehow sends a demeaning signal towards women. I gotta tell you, I don’t agree with that either. I don’t agree that you, when you become students at colleges, have to be coddled and protected from different points of view.”

He added: “Anybody who comes to speak to you and you disagree with, you should have an argument with them. But you shouldn’t silence them by saying, ‘You can’t come because I’m too sensitive to hear what you have to say.’ That’s not the way we learn either.”

Whether or not Obama’s walked the walked on listening to ideas from across the aisle is debatable. But, at the very least, it’s clear that colleges have gotten so liberal that they’re actually making Obama look practically conservative on the state of discourse in our country.
