Podcast – The Fad of Environmentalism Must be Waning

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

There’s an article posted on Campus Reform.org entitled, “Prof touts ‘ecosexuality’ as ‘environmental activist strategy’”

It’s the latest attempt at trying desperately to keep people engaged in the green movement.

So the left’s new attempt is the invention of romancing the trees.

Students Disagree, then Agree on Wedding Cake Ruling

Campus Reform recently sent one of their people out to troll the streets of Washington DC. He asked college-aged passers-by their thoughts on the supreme Court decision allowing the Colorado baker to refuse to bake a wedding cake for a homosexual couple. Should the baker be forced to bake the cake. He asked: “Do you agree or disagree with that ruling?”

The responses started out as we would expect. They all disagreed. But then he threw in a couple of curve ball questions and things got a bit more muddled. Shockingly, the responses were not all bad.

The New 10 Commandments

by: the Common Constitutionalist

I always thought of Lehigh University as a fairly elite school. Both friends and relatives of mine have attended. It’s not an Ivy League university, but it’s right up there.

So I was a bit surprised when I heard that Lehigh hosted a “hip-hop symposium.” Can anyone explain what a “hip-hop symposium” is – because I can’t.

Since hip-hop is supposed to be a musical genre (I fail to see it), one would assume the symposium would have a musical theme. Well, if one assumed that, one would be wrong. It was actually, as one might guess, a string of lectures basically disparaging whites and talking up the new leftist mantra of “white privilege.”

Campus Reform wrote of one visiting professor, Christopher Driscoll, who was so moved by “a lecture on the white appropriation of rap,” that he crafted his own version of the 10 Commandments. He entitled them the “10 Cracka Commandments for 2015.”

If your first thought of Prof. Driscoll is – what an a**hole, I wouldn’t disagree. If your second thought was – this must be a joke – this must be tongue in cheek – you’d be wrong. He is serious. read more
