Bridezilla Asks Guests to Pay to Attend Wedding

And here I thought Canadians were such nice people.

from the Daily Mail:

A disgruntled bride-to-be has revealed she was forced to cancel her extravagant ‘fairytale’ wedding after her guests refused to pay $CAD 1,500 each to attend.

The Canadian bride, who is known only as ‘Susan’, was due to tie the knot with her childhood sweetheart in a lavish $CAD 60,000 ($46,020) wedding.

But the couple decided to call off the ceremony just four days before exchanging their vows after they struggled to foot the bill.

Taking to Facebook to explain their decision, the furious mother-of-one blamed her family and friends for the breakdown of her relationship as she vented her frustration in a lengthy post. read more

Should Trigger Warnings be Required on all Conservative Correspondence, Writings, Podcasts, Broadcasts and Classroom Syllabuses

Recently the College Fix found a conservative college professor.

I will expand on this, but I’d like that first sentence to sink in a bit – a conservative college professor. They are as rare as the critically endangered northern hairy nosed wombat, of which there are only 163 known.

Now that I think about it, there may be more northern hairy nosed wombats.

But the College Fix found one. His name is Professor Duke Pesta. He’s an English professor at the University of Wisconsin, Oshkosh. And how about that name – “Duke.” He has to be conservative.

About a year and a half ago, Duke felt the need to draft a two-page contract, “to counter the trend of infantilizing college students when it comes to academic debate and the free exchange of ideas on campus.”

His class involves the study of literature from days gone by, and as such, may contain content that today’s students may find offensive. read more

Video Podcast – You can put a Price on a Human Life

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

And that price is not nearly as much as you might think.

Last Saturday, lil-Chelsea Clinton spoke at a #RiseUpforRoe event in New York, where she and other pro-abortion leftist women rallied against Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court.

Today I discuss what she said and why it is just so absurd, and frankly just wrong. read more

WND Exclusive – CHICAGO IS A GANG-BANGER’S PARADISE

The Chicago Tribune reported that a man, “who lives on the West side of Union Avenue,” in Chicago was awaken by gun fire. It was around 2 a.m., when along with what he described as seven or eight shots, he also heard doors slamming and the screeching of tires.

What he heard was the attempted murder of a 31-year-old female trying to escape a situation in her GMC Yukon. She was shot in the head as she tried to speed away. The woman was taken to “University of Chicago Medical center, where she was in critical condition Wednesday morning.”

Oh, you must have thought I was reporting on one of the 74 weekend shootings in the Windy City this past weekend. No. This was one of the additional 16 shootings, including seven more murders committed from Monday to Wednesday, making a five-day total of 90 shootings and 19 murders. read more

Boys Can’t be Boys and Girls Can’t be Girls at Harvard

Political correctness and gender neutrality have hit new lows and it’s no surprise that it is being achieved on a college campus.

The Harvard Crimson, the school’s official news site, is reporting that, “Harvard’s chapter of the Delta Gamma sorority is closing its doors — making it the first single-gender group to shut down in response to the College’s social group penalties.”

Yes, Harvard fraternities and sororities are being forced to go gender-neutral.

Other than the obvious, why the heck would any guy want to join a sorority? And certainly no girl would have any interest in joining a previously all-male fraternity. Unless of course she is a radical feminist whose interest is only tearing things down and fighting the scourge of toxic masculinity. Other than that, no self-respecting young woman would join. She would instead opt for a sorority, like has been done since sororities began in 1851. The first being the Adelphean Society at all-girl Wesleyan Female college.

Back then they were not called sororities. Adelphean was known as a secret society for women. Others were classified as women’s fraternities. The term sorority wasn’t adopted until 1882. read more

Blacks Are Being Lied To

by: John Velisek USN (Ret.)

for the Common Constitutionalist

Civility in politics has always been a challenge. There are examples of poor behavior going back to the Founding. The two-party system is adversarial, but rules of order and the basic decency of our citizens have been a brake on the outright violence seen in third world countries.

This has changed in the past eight years. Former President, Barack Obama worked hard to sow divisions within our populous, and deepen the rift that many Americans worked so hard to close. Academics pursue these divisions for no other reason than to attempt to push a socialist agenda. While most people in real America do nothing more than work hard for long hours to put food on the table and pay their bills, there are those who want nothing more than to tear our country apart. read more

Black Conservative Censored by Instagram

from the Daily Wire:

Instagram Censors Conservative Columnist For Saying: Planned Parenthood Kills More Blacks Than The KKK

Conservative columnist Ryan Bomberger, a black man who was adopted after being conceived in rape, dared to speak the truth about Planned Parenthood and abortion in general: it kills more black people than the KKK ever did. For that, Instagram censored him.

Writing for LifeNews, Bomberger claims that a meme he had created for #WorldPopulationDay in which he blasted Planned Parenthood for their killing of black children was censored by Instagram for supposedly violating “community guidelines.” read more

Dave Rubin Asks: Are You Tolerant?

Are you tolerant? I mean are you tolerant of other points of view? Do you accept that not everyone thinks and acts the same and that, within reason, we should all be able to live and let live?

If so, you cannot be a modern day liberal. Today’s leftist cannot and will not tolerate any deviation from the prescribed ideology.

Liberal Dave Rubin for Prager University describes this to a tee:

Civility in politics has always been a challenge. There are examples of poor behavior going back to the Founding. The two-party system is adversarial, but rules of order and the basic decency of our citizens have been a brake on the outright violence seen in third world countries.

The #walkaway movement has finally given those of the progressive socialist party, commonly called the Democrats, an opportunity to pull away from a party that has moved further left to a socialist style government on everything from immigration to reparations. Our 200-year history is the prop they are attempting to use to obtain something for nothing and to force others to live under the rules that they demand. read more

LGBTQ Rights are more Special than Yours

What has been the clarion cry of the left? Of course it’s been one of disenfranchisement. They are the oppressed – the bullied – the back-of-the-bus riders.

And for years we on the right have heard that various left-leaning groups just want to be treated as equals – but that Jim Crow conservatives (that’s all conservatives, by the way) are holding these factions down.

We right-wingers have always been confused by this. We are the true, live and let live Americans. We are the ones who espouse equal rights for all, special rights for none.

But that has never been good enough for the left, particularly today, as they become increasingly radicalized. The left doesn’t want equal rights. They do in fact demand special rights for every new subset of the left.

Women and “people of color” did receive the equal rights they deserved. Yet it didn’t stop there. It never does with the left. Women now receive guilt-ridden special rights by virtue of Title IX carve-outs. People of color received affirmative action carve-outs. Both are special rights, afforded to no other groups. Hardly the equal rights that their forefathers and mothers so reasonably demanded. read more
