UCF’s new ‘Diversity Chair’: Trump supporters are not welcome on campus

University of Central Florida’s (UCF) Student Government Association (SGA) just appointed a diversity chair who believes that “Trump supporters are not welcome on our campus.”

The newly appointed Diversity Chair, Grayson Lanza, is a known progressive who has a history of making those with differing opinions feel unwelcomed.

Daniel Hanna, a UCF student who voted for Donald Trump, told the Knightly News about a run-in he had with Lanza during a Trump rally last year.

“When we started debating politics, I eventually said ‘you know the great thing about this country is we can both differ regarding political views but we can openly discuss it… Then I offered him a handshake.’ He said ‘I’m not shaking your hand, I do not tolerate you and you are not welcome here,’” Hanna recalled.


Fury as Macron plans Libya ‘migrant hotspot’ scheme

The French president hopes the plans will reduce the number of people risking travel across the Mediterranean in order to reach Europe.

But Emmanuel Macron’s plans have provoked outrage with Human Rights Watch and NGOs lashing out at the plans which are facing opposition in his own government.

Mr Macron said he wants to take in genuine asylum fleeing oppression or war and said he believes the system will help reduce economic migrants.

No worries, Shiny Pony will take them.


Google-Funded ‘Lynching In America’ Report is Riddled With Falsehoods And Errors

American visitors to Google this July 28th will find a “doodle” asking them to explore their “legacy of racial terror,” the effects of which “are still felt today.”

Google’s homepage links to a site called “Lynching in America” from Bryan Stevenson’s “Equal Justice Initiative,” which Google is funding.

The site features a host of made-up statistics and wild exaggerations, such as the claim that “more than six million African Americans fled the South in the first half of the 20th century” because of “terror lynchings and other racial violence.”


 

Michigan: “Devout Muslims” wage legal jihad after quitting jobs over lack of sharia accommodations

Sixteen Muslims “involuntary resigned” from their jobs at an automotive supplier in Warren because the company refused to accommodate their planned religious observance, their attorneys said Wednesday.

The ex-employees of Brose Jefferson, who worked the afternoon shift, had requested they be allowed to take their unpaid, 30-minute meal break at 9 p.m. instead of the usual 7 p.m., during Ramadan. During Ramadan, which was celebrated worldwide from May 27 to June 25, Muslims observe strict fasting from sunrise to sunset.


The world loves Trudeau, but does Trudeau love the world?

What, then, are Trudeau’s intentions with the world? I don’t mean for this question to be rhetorical. It’s still open. These are relatively early days. It’s too soon to decide that Trudeau is using the international community for the applause.

There’s little honour in impulsivity, and we shouldn’t ask someone to exercise it. Maybe Trudeau is playing the long game in his love affair with the world. Maybe he has the intellectual depth to understand what’s at stake, the foresight to cultivate the right opportunities and the wisdom to wait for them to develop before he acts decisively. Maybe he needs more information.
