Trump yard sign thief electrocuted!
News stories and videos of Donald Trump yard signs being stolen or vandalized are quite common. However, instances of Hillary Clinton yard signs being stolen or vandalized are rare. That says something about the people each candidate is attracting. Voters attracted to a liberal candidate like Hillary Clinton are intent on limiting freedom of speech that offends them. That is something Trump supporters cannot be accused of.
NAACP Says Black Cops Are Not Real Black People
One of the craziest things to come out of the Keith Scott shooting in Charleston, NC is the idea that it is racist for a black police officer to use deadly force on an armed black man. The NAACP, in its infinite wisdom, has come up with a foolproof way around this little problem. According to the organization, black cops are not real black people so therefore it is racist when they shoot actual black people.
The NAACP is not convinced the Scott shooting was justified, despite multiple videos showing that he was armed. Even the facts that a gun was recovered from the scene and that Scott was illegally carrying a weapon when police shot him has done nothing to persuade them.
Student columnist: ‘Pockets are sexist’
If you thought society’s fashion-related discrimination against women ended with fat-shaming Miss Universe or refusing to make trendy clothing for the average American woman, you haven’t been looking hard enough.
Specifically at your hips, butt and possibly chest and upper thighs – if you’re a man.
“Pockets are sexist towards women,” and fashion designers must “adapt and evolve to fit the needs of the modern working women,” columnist Eric Schucht writes in the University of Oregon’s Daily Emerald.
Denmark to Become ‘Magnet for Child Brides’ After Amazing U-turn
Last year’s migrant crisis acquainted Europe with the problem of underage spouses. Denmark, which had previously decided to separate married couples in accommodation centers if at least one party was underage, made a surprising U-turn.

Tennessee: Middle schoolers will still be indoctrinated with Islam under “new” standards
Students will continue to learn the origin and central features of Islam in middle school under new draft standards proposed by the Tennessee State Board of Education.

Canada’s population tops 36 million as immigrants, refugees swell numbers
A record number of immigrants and refugees arriving on Canadian shores helped push Canada’s official population over 36 million as of July 1, Statistics Canada says.
The data agency says there were 437,815 more people living in Canada than there were on the same day a year earlier, bringing the official population to 36,286,425.
In absolute terms, that’s the biggest annual surge since 1988. In percentage terms, the population grew by 1.2 per cent.
The “increase is one of the largest increases since the baby boom in the 1950s,” BMO economist Doug Porter said, “although this recent increase is driven more by immigration.”

After Chelsea Bombing, NYC Launches Efforts To Silence ‘Negative Rhetoric’ About Islam
Less than two weeks after the terrorist bombings in New Jersey and New York City’s Chelsea neighborhood, NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio’s administration is launching a new campaign against the “negative rhetoric targeting Muslim communities” that the city says gets worse after “terrorist incidents.”
A press release from the city on Monday explained the reasoning for the new anti-anti-Islam efforts: “Across the country, hateful speech has made Muslim residents the target of misguided attacks and threats, especially in the aftermath of terrorist incidents,” states a press release from the city.
