Chechnya: Muslim clerics call for “retribution” against journalists who revealed persecution of gays

The newspaper Novaya Gazeta has urged the Russian government to respond to calls for retaliation against journalists voiced, the editors claim, by Islamic theologians in Chechnya on April 3.

Meeting participants adopted a resolution in which they declared that the Novaya Gazeta journalists had “insulted the centuries-old foundations of Chechen society and the dignity of Chechen men,” as well as their faith. “We promise that the true instigators will be subjected to retribution, wherever and whoever they are, without statute of limitations,” the resolution read.

Government is ‘institutionally biased’ against Christian refugees from Syria

Lord Carey claimed that “politically correct” officials were “institutionally biased” against Christian refugees, who are underrepresented in the numbers being moved to the UK.

His comments came as Russian and American diplomats agreed to restore dialogue over the crisis in Syria following a week of escalating tensions that ended in Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin exchanging barely veiled insults.

Banned “mini mosque” reporter exposes Peel School Board’s bids to silence critics

Last month, journalist Kevin Johnson was kicked off Peel District School Board property to prevent him from disrupting a meeting where they were discussing the accommodation of Muslim religious practices in public schools.

More recently, Kevin tried again to enter a meeting but to no avail.

Anonymous gift lets Columbia fund concessions to Muslims

Columbia University has agreed to hire a full-time “Coordinator of Muslim Life” and open up prayer space for Muslims during academic breaks in response to a petition from the Muslim Student Association.

Student activists were surprisingly resentful about their apparent victory, however, complaining that they had not been informed that efforts to implement their demands were already underway for four years.

Yet Another Hoax: KKK Trump-Supporter Who Made Racist Threats Turns Out To Be … Black

One of six threatening letters sent to black residents in Knoxville, Tennessee, including a well-regarded pastor, read: “I am a very racist white man and with Mr. Trump in the White House being the President, white people going to take over the world.”

Another letter read, “I wrote this letter (racial slur) … I hate (expletive, racial slur). I’m coming to your house to rape you. I’m going to get a chainsaw and cut your legs off and then cut your head off, black nasty (slur).”

On top of being a white Trump supporter, the author also claimed to be a member of the KKK.

To the surprise of no one, none of this turned out to be true. For in the Age of Trump, without the hate crime-hoax, there would not be all that many hate crimes.

Apple receives permit in California to test self-driving cars

Apple Inc has secured a permit to test autonomous vehicles in California, which allows it to conduct test drives in three vehicles with six drivers, the state Department of Motor Vehicles said on Friday.

The Latest Leftist Tactic To Push Political Correctness In Schools? Rewriting Fairy Tales!

If the Cult of Social Justice was 100% honest with what they wanted society to look like, they would be laughed out of town. The sad thing is, they know it. So, they have to resort to underhanded tactics to make their insane messages more palatable for the general populace – particularly kids.

Universities require scholars pledge commitment to diversity

Universities are increasingly relying on “diversity statements” for faculty hiring and promotion, according to a new report from the Oregon Association of Scholars.

These statements have strong ties to liberal ideology, such as the assumption of group victimization and claims for group-based entitlements, effectively making them “partisan litmus tests” to “weed out non-left wing scholars,” the association states in its report.

Liberals won’t guarantee “radical” Imams excluded from shaping M-103

Beyond condemnation of Islamophobia in the motion was a call for a “whole-of-government approach to reducing or eliminating systemic racism and religious discrimination including Islamophobia, in Canada.”

That “whole-of-government” approach starts with committee hearings led by the Ministry of Heritage. In an interview with the Toronto Sun’s Anthony Furey, Liberal MP Hedy Fry couldn’t guarantee that radical voices wouldn’t be included in these consultations.

That’s a feature, not a bug.
