‘You are the epitome of stupid’: Student rep sparks outrage after vowing to tear down a ‘mural of white men’ honouring those who left British universities to fight in WWI but never returned

The president of a university students’ union has been criticised for saying a mural in memory of First World War soldiers should be ‘painted over’ because it displays only ‘white men’.

The Myth of the Andalusian Paradise Under Islamic Rule

The existence of a Muslim kingdom in Medieval Spain where different races and religions lived harmoniously in multicultural tolerance is one of today’s most widespread myths. University professors teach it. Journalists repeat it. Tourists visiting the Alhambra accept it. It has reached the editorial pages of the Wall Street Journal, which sings the virtues of the “pan-confessional humanism” of Andalusian Spain (July 18, 2003). The Economist echoes the belief: “Muslim rulers of the past were far more tolerant of people of other faiths than were Catholic ones. For example, al-Andalus’s multi-cultural, multi-religious states ruled by Muslims gave way to a Christian regime that was grossly intolerant even of dissident Christians, and that offered Jews and Muslims a choice only between being forcibly converted and being expelled (or worse).”1 The problem with this belief is that it is historically unfounded, a myth. The fascinating cultural achievements of Islamic Spain cannot obscure the fact that it was never an example of peaceful convivencia.

Why fake miniatures depicting Islamic science are everywhere

As I prepared to teach my class ‘Science and Islam’ last spring, I noticed something peculiar about the book I was about to assign to my students. It wasn’t the text – a wonderful translation of a medieval Arabic encyclopaedia – but the cover. Its illustration showed scholars in turbans and medieval Middle Eastern dress, examining the starry sky through telescopes. The miniature purported to be from the premodern Middle East, but something was off.

TRAVESTY AT MCGRAW-HILL: Third-Grade Civics Textbook Butchers American History

Wondering whether elementary school students are truly indoctrinated in the left wing agenda? Well, wonder no more. They are; and it’s worse — far worse — than you can possibly imagine.

Consider, if you will, McGraw-Hill’s Our Democratic Heritage, a textbook designed for third-graders and published in 2010. If you’d assume that it was intended to teach kids about America’s founding and its institutions of government, you’d assume wrong.

Salinas celebrates founding of México-Tenochtitlán, indigenous identity

“We’re conserving it for our youth, teaching them this spiritual tradition, the cultural tradition, because it’s connected with their identity and purpose,” she said.

She added that the event recognized sacrifices people made, not only to create the pre-Columbian Aztec civilization but also to maintain traditions and spirituals in the face of genocides from the Spanish and other Europeans.

The Left Revealed: Democratic Socialism

The Political Spectrum was not designed to weigh political disagreements between the right and the left. Instead, it is meant to illustrate the progression of a political system from complete control over people, to having no power at all. The actual spectrum classifies the far left as totalitarian, being entirely controlled by one or a few. The far right is classified as being an ochlocracy or having no form of government.

The radical far left has historically been associated with communism, Nazism, fascism, dictators, and socialism. The radical far right has predominantly been associated with mob rule.

The left classifies Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini as far right dictators due to their disdain for Communism. As a result, they .” as anti-socialists. This could not be further from the truth. The mischaracterization is merely an attempt by the left to rewrite history.

The Quran, The Gospels And Tanach Say Jerusalem Is Jewish So Why Doesn’t Everyone?

According to UNESCO, the Palestinians, and the Muslim States, Israel, and the Jewish People have no right to Jerusalem. It is this fake belief that until Donald Trump became president kept the U.S. from recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and the Jewish world. Most of the world outside America continues to believe the Palestinian/Muslim propaganda that ignores that the ancient Greeks, Romans, Christians, and even the ancient Muslims, reported Jerusalem and the Temple Mount were the property of the Jewish people.

How Post-Modern Progressives Are Trying to Rewrite History

Since the election of Barack Obama, an admitted progressive, there are misconceptions of the origins, values, and strands of progressivism. Who were the original progressives? Where did their ideas come from? What motivated their actions? What goals for society and government did they have? What social doctrines influenced their convergence? Is past progressive ideology relative to our current progressivism? The past and present Progressive Eras are as dissimilar as heaven is to hell.

John Wayne Was A ‘Hollow’ Masculine Icon, The Atlantic Says. The Atlantic Can Go To Hell

John Wayne was an overcompensating pawn — if you take The Atlantic’s word for it.

Reviewing Nancy Shoenberger’s book, “Wayne and Ford: The Films, the Friendship, and the Forging of an American Hero” in this month’s issue of the once-great magazine, Stephen Metcalf soliloquizes on the two icons of early American cinema: director John Ford and his protegé: The Duke himself.

Ford was a manic, closeted homosexual, Metcalf implies. Wayne, a “hollow” shell of a propaganda stunt: a bumbling buffoon used naively to propel the myth of American masculinity on the big screen.

Protesters shroud Jefferson statue, decry UVA response to rallies

One month after white nationalists stormed the Rotunda at the University of Virginia, bearing tiki torches and chanting, “You will not replace us,” a smaller but equally vocal crowd of protesters took to the Rotunda on Tuesday night, covering a statue of Thomas Jefferson in a black shroud, which was removed sometime after midnight Wednesday.
