The Best of Fake-Hate

by The College Fix:

Hate-crime hoaxes had a banner year

During the 2016-17 school year, campuses across the nation were plagued by numerous hate crime reports — but so many turned out to be fake.

Often, students confessed to fabricating the incident or submitting a baseless report after police found no evidence. Sometimes they refused to even cooperate with police, making an investigation impossible. Other times officers caught the “victims” red-handed in their own web of lies.

Many examples were inspired by students trying to create and push the narrative of a spike in hate crimes after Donald Trump was elected president.

Here are some of the most outrageous examples from campuses and college students over the past school year. read more

Is It Time for the Country To Voluntarily Segregate?

by: the Common Constitutionalist

What am I trying to do – purposely ignite a powder keg or something? Am I actually proposing bringing back segregation? No – I’m not, but some are. By their speeches and actions – some are.

First, let’s look at the state of our nation. In every major city there are places like little Italy, Chinatown, Koreatown, Little Havana, etc. – entire sprawling neighborhoods representing a certain other-than-American nationality. Then there are “unnamed” segregated neighborhoods predominantly comprised of whites, Latinos, blacks, etc.

But this is America and last I checked, one can reside anywhere one chooses, assuming one can afford it. Yet people for the most part choose to live and associate with others of similar interest, heritage, etc. It’s human nature. If you exclusively play football, you will more than likely not hang out with those who exclusively play chess. There is nothing wrong with it. Again – it’s human nature.

But what if the Chess Community begins to resent the Football Community? What if at some point the Chess team begins an interminably long losing streak? They lose every match – even to the clubs they should beat. Over time, they can’t remember their last win.

Logically some introspection would be in order. The coaching staff, assuming they have such a thing, must examine themselves and their methods. The players must do the same. Obviously something is wrong with the internals of the team. read more

Finally – Common Ground with the Left

by: the Common Constitutionalist

These days it seems all we do is complain about the left and all the left does is complain about us, the right. It’s like the Hatfields and the McCoys.

We fight about everything – climate change, taxes, foreign policy, immigration, etc. Heck, we probably couldn’t agree on the time of day.hatfield

Yet, I finally found something both the left and right agree on – free speech.

Now, I don’t mean all speech, everywhere. No, that wouldn’t be right. To the left, hate speech is where they draw the line on the First Amendment, and of course hate speech is determined only by the left.

I’m talking about free speech on college campuses – more specifically, campus “Free Speech Zones” as they’re called.

So I was more than just a bit surprised when I found myself on the same side as the ACLU and even the Clinton’s cabin boy and Governor of Virginia, Terry McAuliffe. Oh, and the Huffington Post. Go figure. read more
