McGill University, my grad school alma mater, has, in my opinion, acted dishonourably in a recent and unusual case of tenure denial to a brilliant and popular professor.
When I learned of Ahmed Fekry Ibrahim’s story, I was fortunate to receive a remarkable trove of evidence: his supporting documents for a defamation lawsuit he launched this summer against a student and a professor in his department who, he alleges, helped ensure his denial of tenure. He believes he was targeted for not being politically correct enough in teaching about Islam.
Protester Asks GOP Senator To ‘Apologize’ To Her Children — His Response Makes Her Angry
Fresh off getting their britches kicked over the Kavanaugh nomination, the American left has come up with yet another scheme to stymie the GOP and strangle the MAGA program in its cradle.
This is the product of John Burton, an Obama acolyte and political activist who, harnessing the crowdsourcing process (the “Wiki effect”), has signed up an army of amateur volunteers to examine the records of dozens of vulnerable GOP candidates with the intention of publicizing these findings in a string of October surprises.
Cambridge University students vote against Remembrance Sunday motion over fears it ‘glorifies’ war
Student activist Stella Swain reads assholism at Cambridge
It is a campaign supposed to warn bigots, racists, homophobes and transphobes that they are at risk of being convicted.
But the Scottish Government-funded drive to stamp out discrimination and abuse has itself been accused of blindly carrying out a hate crime.
The ‘dear haters’ advertising campaign has attracted the wrath of some Christians over its use of language, including one poster that reads: ‘Dear Bigots, you can’t spread your religious hate here. End of sermon.’
…As intellectually warped as the Mesley/Barton smears on Bernier were — and warped is the right word — talk of firing and sanctions is misplaced. The problem certainly demands radical reform, but you can’t fire journalists for doing the very job the CBC hired them to do: to front for a state-funded corporate news organization that has become, by design, a purveyor of leftism and social activism.
Fulton Brown has been repeatedly slurred as a “white supremacist,” “racist” and “alt-right” since her 2015 blog post “Three Cheers for White Men” drew condemnation from feminists.
…MasterCard and Discover are almost certainly acting against me at the urging of the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), which for years has defamed me as a “hate group leader” and an “anti-Muslim extremist.” These are not mere words. Tyler O’Neil reported in PJ Media last September that former SPLC spokesman Mark Potok declared: “Sometimes the press will describe us as monitoring hate groups, I want to say plainly that our aim in life is to destroy these groups, completely destroy them.”
The attempted political assassination of Brett Kavanaugh is bad for the country, but good for a Trumpian attitude toward American politics.
The last-minute ambush validates key assumptions of Trump’s supporters that fueled his rise and buttress him in office, no matter how rocky the ride has been or will become. At least three key premises have been underlined by tawdry events of the last couple of weeks.
According to a New York research institute known as Data & Society, there exists a sinister ‘Alternative Influence Network’ (AIN) which enables far-right radicalisation through YouTube. Via a ‘six degrees of separation’-style flowchart, one that wouldn’t look out of place on David Icke’s notice board, a researcher called Rebecca Lewis has somehow managed to join the dots between political worldviews opposed by the liberal-left – conservatism, libertarianism, classical liberalism – and white-nationalist extremism. It is the most egregious example of guilt by association and the continuum fallacy I’ve seen for a long time.
The camel has its nose well and truly under the tent.
Does that include the Slutwalkers???
The woman who accused U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., of domestic abuse released on Wednesday what appeared to be a medical document from 2017 detailing the abuse allegedly caused by the congressman.
Karen Monahan, an ex-girlfriend of Ellison, published the document on social media just days after saying the Democratic Party “smeared” her and threatened to isolate her over her allegations against the deputy of the Democratic National Committee (DNC).
A new study of YouTube exposed what it called a “conspiracy ecosystem” of content creators that tried to connect prominent conservatives with a well-known racist and package them together as “far-right” or “reactionary” “extremists.”
The study, published Tuesday, exposed the “Alternative Influence Network” and featured top conservatives like the Daily Wire’s Ben Shapiro and Andrew Klavan, the Prager Institute’s Dennis Prager, and University of Toronto Prof. Jordan Peterson. It then attempted to link them with racists like Richard Spencer and accuse them all of having a harmful “impact” “on vulnerable and underrepresented populations — the LGBTQ community, women, immigrants, and people of color.”
Author Rebecca Lewis deemed the entire collection — from moderate conservatives to full-blown racists — “reactionary,” a term the report employed 13 times in order to hammer home that everyone mentioned was part of the same “extremist” network. “Extremist” was used 25 times in the report.

While Democrats take to the airwaves to exhort people to “believe the woman” when it comes to Brett Kavanaugh, they seem oddly silent when it comes to one of their own. Karen Monahan accused deputy DNC chair Rep. Keith Ellison of domestic abuse and battery earlier this summer, and might have expected Democrats inside and outside of Minnesota to rally around her. Instead, Monahan says she’s been “smeared” and “threatened” by her own party in an attempt to protect their nominee for Minnesota Attorney General
