PIERS MORGAN: SAME PARLIAMENT HASN’T BANNED RETURNING JIHADIS SERIOUSLY DEBATING BANNING DONALD TRUMP…….

Finally something from Piers Morgan worthwhile repeating……

King Salman of Saudia Arabia can allow 50 people to be beheaded last month and nobody in the corridors of British officialdom batted a public eyelid. Yet he is treated like some kind of deity when he arrives in Britain in his fleet of gold-plated jets.

Russian President Vladimir Putin commits and spouts all manner of despicable, murderous, bigoted things and Britain welcomes him with State dinners at Buckingham Palace and handshakes outside Downing Street.

PIERS MORGAN: Why I’m so embarrassed today for Britain. The same parliament that hasn’t banned a single UK citizen from returning after fighting for ISIS is seriously debating banning Trump from its shores

PIERS MORGAN: Why I’m so embarrassed today for Britain

PIERS MORGAN: As I write this column, members of the UK Parliament (right) are debating whether or not to ban Donald Trump (bottom left) from entering Britain. They’ve allocated three hours of time to do this. Time that could have been spent debating terrorism, famine, nuclear weapons, the Middle East refugee crisis or the Syrian War. But no, instead British law-makers have concluded their own time is best served seriously considering a proposal to ban a man who may end up being the next President of the United States.

The reason they’re doing it is, of course, is because Trump recently called for a temporary ban on all Muslims entering the U.S. in the wake of an horrific mass shooting by two Islamic terrorists.

Like many, I didn’t agree with what Trump said and indeed, I wrote him an open letter at the time saying it was ‘dangerously wrong and bigoted’.

But to ban a foreign politician for expressing an opinion is utterly absurd. Particularly a foreign politician who stands an increasingly good chance of becoming leader of the world’s biggest superpower and Britain’s supposedly closest, most powerful ally.

Can you imagine a situation where President Trump, if he is elected, is actually banned? It would make Britain the laughing stock of the world, and confirm to Americans that we’re just as pathetically petty and small pond in our thinking as you’ve always suspected.

It would also cause serious, probably irreparable damage to Britain’s relationship with the United States.

The sheer hypocrisy in all this ‘Ban Trump’ nonsense is breathtaking.

Britain throws down the red carpet and blares out the royal bugles all the time for leaders of countries with heinous human rights records.

NOTE: A temporary ban on Muslims entering the US is not an unreasonable request, especially in light of violent and stealth jihad. No one has a ”right” to immigrate to the US, a sovereign nation determines its own immigration policy, or at least it should.

THE PURPOSE OF GOVERNMENT…….

ProtestSignConstitution

The Purpose of Government

In the midst of a rancorous presidential nominating season, when we are bombarded every day with promises by politicians about how they will create jobs or educate our children better or get the economy rolling again, few if any candidates seem to grasp the purpose of government in America.  The purpose of government is to preserve liberty.

That would include protecting us from foreign enemies who seek to take our freedom and from people who come into our nation illegally, either as illegal immigrants or as terrorists.  Protecting the legal integrity of our borders and our citizenship is an aspect of protecting American liberty.  Nothing matters, though, if liberty first is not preserved.

Listen, then, to the next Republican debate.  What are the candidates talking about?  Who will create the most jobs, who will jump-start the economy, who will improve our educational system.  We do not need government, especially the federal government, for any of that.  The economy hums along just fine without politicians.  Jobs are created when people work and not when the Bureau of Labor Statistics captures data for dreary and dull reports.

Do we need government to educate us?  We need government less than at any time in human history to educate us.  There are a hundred different ways for children these days to learn to read and write, and once children are literate, there is a limitless universe of knowledge that eager and willing minds can pump to become truly and magnificently educated.  Indeed, it is incomparably better for de-institutionalized willing minds to learn to keep learning than to earn a diploma, which implies entitlement or merit when often it means nothing at all.

Liberty, though, is quite different.  It is the very air free minds need to survive.  It is the soil in which wealth grows.  There is no substitute for liberty, no government program that can simulate liberty, no regulation that can mandate liberty.  It cannot be bought, and it ought not be sold.

When our Declaration of Independence states that it is to preserve liberty that governments are formed by men, and when the Preamble to our Constitution states that the reason for this experiment in federalism is “to secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and to our posterity,” that is the heart of what America is, or what it was founded to be.

Expanding liberty would a worthwhile goal for discussion in a presidential election year.  Devolving power to individuals and to state governments, which lack the sort of monopoly the federal government possesses in its continental reach, is surely worth talking about.  What might be some practical ways of accomplishing this goal?

Restore to individuals and to businesses that are not inextricably linked to government the right to discriminate.  The right to discriminate is at the heart of freedom.  What if a particular variety of discrimination seems wrong to us?  Then we, personally, should not do it.  We might also tell businesses that if they want our trade, we will consider when and how they discriminate.  But stop making federal judges and government bureaucrats the arbitrators of good and bad discrimination.  Let markets and individual consciences do that.

US: BLM ENTIRELY WRONG ABOUT POLICE NUMBERS……

The Numbers Are in: Black Lives Matter Is Wrong about Police

Demonstrators march in Washington, D.C., December 13, 2014. (Saul Loeb/AFP/Getty)

by DAVID FRENCH December 29, 2015 2:41 PM @DAVIDAFRENCH

Ever since the explosion of the Black Lives Matter movement, Americans have been bombarded with assertions that black men face a unique and dangerous threat — not from members of their own community but from the very law enforcement officers who are sworn to “serve and protect” them. Hashtags such as #DrivingWhileBlack and #WalkingWhileBlack have perpetuated a narrative that black Americans risk being gunned down by police simply because of the color of their skin. Using individual anecdotes of police misconduct and the now-discredited “hands up, don’t shoot” rallying cry, Black Lives Matter has built a case that American police are out of control.

The conservative response is clear: While no one believes the police are perfect, on the whole they tend to use force appropriately to protect their own lives and the lives of others. Moreover, racial disparities in the use of force are largely explained by racial disparities in criminality. Different American demographics commit crimes at different rates, so it stands to reason that those who commit more crimes will confront the police more often. Yes, there are rogue officers — and those rogue officers should be prosecuted — but the police are still a force for good in our society.

In response to the allegations of Black Lives Matter activists, the Washington Post launched an unprecedented, case-by-case study of police shootings. After a year of research, the data are in, and they confirm the conservative position: The police use force mainly to protect human life, the use of force against unarmed suspects is rare, and the use of force against black Americans is largely proportional to their share of the violent crime rate.

IRANIAN SABER RATTLING: FIRES ROCKET 1500 YDS FROM US CARRIER IN PERSIAN GULF…….

What says the street-organizer-in-chief?

Obama-Iran2

Close encounter between U.S. warship and Iranian rocket

Washington (CNN)A U.S. aircraft carrier came within about 1,500 yards of an Iranian rocket while operating in the Strait of Hormuz, a Pentagon official told CNN.

While transiting the strait that sits at the mouth of the Persian Gulf, the USS Harry S. Truman had the encounter while the Iranian Revolutionary Guards were conducting a live-fire exercise in the area on Saturday, according to Cmdr. Kyle Raines, a U.S. Central Command spokesman.

The incident was first reported by NBC News.

The USS Harry S. Truman was accompanied by two other coalition ships, one American, and one from another country in the coalition, who were escorting the Truman through the Strait.

Raines said this incident was “uncharacteristic of most interactions” between the U.S. and Iranian navies.

UK: FATHER OF MUSLIM FAMILY DENIED ENTRY TO US HAS LINKS TO TALIBAN AND AL-QAIDA……

The very people soft headed Leftist maroons (who hate Donald Trump) would let in.

jihadi speaks

Facebook page linked to Taliban and Al Qaeda was registered to same address as British Muslim father whose Disneyland trip was blocked by Homeland Security 

  • Mohammad Tariq Mahmood tried to travel from Gatwick Airport to LA
  • He, his brother and nine children were stopped on the orders of the US 
  • Mr Mahmood says the family were barred ‘because we are Muslim’
  • He dismissed Facebook account claiming links to Al Qaeda and Taliban
  • It was set up by someone who has lived at the family’s postal address 
  • David Cameron says he’ll examine the case after it was raised by an MP
Mohammad Tariq Mahmood and his family were stopped from going to the U.S. just minutes before they planned to board a flight to Los Angeles where they were going to see family and visit Disneyland

Mohammad Tariq Mahmood and his family were stopped from going to the U.S. just minutes before they planned to board a flight to Los Angeles where they were going to see family and visit Disneyland

A British Muslim father whose planned Disneyland trip was ruined when he and his family were barred from boarding a flight to the U.S. has now been forced to distance himself from a Facebook account claiming links to Al Qaeda and the Taliban.

Mohammad Tariq Mahmood, 41, his brother and their children, aged between eight and 19, said they were stopped at the departure gate at Gatwick airport and told their visas to the US had been revoked.

He claimed the family were barred from flying ‘because they are Muslim’.

However, it has since emerged that a Facebook page claiming links to radical Islamist groups was set up by someone who has lived at the family’s postal address, according to ITV News.

The account, which includes information suggesting it may have been published as a joke, was in the name of Hamza Hussain – a first name shared by Mr Mahmood’s 18-year-old son. It reportedly lists the job titles ‘supervisor at Taliban and leader at al-Qaeda’.

When asked about the account, Mr Mahmood believed hackers may have been to blame, adding: ‘That could be anything, maybe a mistake.’

He said: ‘It is not my son’s Facebook page. It has a similar name, but not the same as my son’s.

‘The page is also linked to our home address and that could be coincidence. I don’t know why it is linked there. The name is not even the same. The authorities must have linked it simply because of the name Hamza.’

It was understood that the wives of Mr Mahmood and his brother had stayed at home for the trip because one of them was ill and one of the children did not have a valid passport.

But it is now believed that Mr Mahmood’s wife was in Pakistan at the time.

The family say were given no explanation why their visas, organised six weeks before the flight, were suddenly cancelled at the last minute and have now lost the £11,000 they had saved for the holiday.

It has also been suggested the move by US authorities could be due to Mr Mahmood’s brother having been refused entry to Israel eight years ago, but no official explanation has been given by the US Embassy.

The flight ban comes after Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump called for all Muslims to be stopped from entering the US.

US DEMANDS KUWAIT AIRWAYS TO END ITS ISRAEL BOYCOTT, IT DROPS NYC-LONDON INSTEAD…….

US Demands Kuwait Airways End Boycott of Israelis; Airline Drops NYC-London Flight

US forbade Kuwait Airways from discriminating against Israelis, but Kuwait boycott law meant it had to drop the NYC-London flight.

Every once in awhile the bad guys suffer the consequences of their wrongdoing.

A very recent example is an airline which refused to allow Israelis to travel on its planes and ended up having to cancel its NYC to London flight because the ban violates U.S. anti-discrimination law.

A passenger with an Israeli passport was prevented from purchasing a Kuwait Airways ticket on a New York City to London flight in 2013. That passenger, Eldad Gatt, brought a discrimination claim against Kuwait Airways with the U.S. Department of Transportation.

The Department found that the airline’s denial of service to Gatt was an act of discrimination in violation of U.S. law.

“It is our duty to ensure that the transportation system is free of discrimination. Period. I know how important protections against discrimination are, and our Department will stand firmly against it. Today, we are saying “no” to discrimination against Israeli citizens on flights between the U.S. and the U.K.,” said U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx on Sept. 30. Any airline that wishes to operate in the U.S. should know that we will not tolerate discrimination of any kind in our skies,” Secretary Foxx continued.

The department informed the counsel for Kuwait Airways of its decision, informing the airway that it agreed to be bound by U.S. law when it sought its foreign air carrier permit from the United States.

On Oct 29, the Department ordered the Kuwaiti airline to end its discriminatory policy.

US: CONGRESSMAN STEVE KING STANDS IN THE BREECH, KEEPS IMMIGRATION AND CARTOON CLIMATOLOGY OUT OF TRADE DEALS…….

Special thanks to Mark Steyn for that label, “cartoon climatology” is a definite keeper.

Steve King Keeps Immigration, Climate Change Out of Trade Deals

Rep. Steve King (R-IA) 79% successfully pushed legislation through the House that prevents the Obama administration from negotiating immigration and climate change provisions with trade deals.

“It’s got many provisions within it which I’m happy about…the currency manipulation provision is one of them,” King said of the legislation.

The House adopted King’s amendment, which keeps the Obama administration from negotiating immigration and climate change provisions in trade agreements, on Friday in the Customs Conference Report.

“There were those that had significant heartburn over Trade Promotion Authority, I’m one of them. There were two provisions that I so badly wanted to be included within the TPA legislation because I have a bit of a history of working to keep the immigration components out of trade deals. Congress needs to be passing immigration law, not trade negotiators,” King charged. He went on to say:

Well, that language is an amendment that is in here in the Conference Report along with language that prohibits the negotiations under Trade Promotion Authority on climate change. So, we are protected from executive decisions imposed upon this Congress in a usurpation of Article One authority by two-pieces of language in here. No negotiation under TPA can include climate change…and no negotiations under TPA can include immigration. Congress can speak to that, but they cannot negotiate that under TPA.

US: DOJ SAYS SHE’LL CRACK DOWN ON ANTI-MUSLIM RHETORIC……..

ATTORNEY GENERAL TELLS MUSLIM PRO-TERRORISTS SHE WILL CRACK DOWN ON ANTI-MUSLIM RHETORIC

Obama’s Attorney General stands with advocates for terrorists in support of censoring criticism of Islam

While in San Bernardino children wept for fathers who would never come home after the latest Muslim terror attack, Attorney General Loretta Lynch put on some chic clothes to gab with Muslim Advocates, a Muslim group that had become notorious for its aggressive obstruction of Justice Department investigations into Muslim terrorism.

Muslim Advocates, headed by Farhana Khera, who peppered a smiling Lynch with questions about “anti-Muslim rhetoric”, had played a significant role in crippling DOJ investigations of Islamic terrorism by eliminating training materials about Islamic terrorism.

Khera had vocally opposed the sorts of sting operations that had succeeded in capturing a number of ISIS terror plotters before they were able to act. A similar sting might have stopped the San Bernardino massacre. She had opposed the FBI recruiting informants and supported Muslim leaders linked to terrorism. She had even defended terror charities like the Holy Land Foundation.

And she and another Muslim Advocates figure had urged Muslims not to provide information to the FBI. “Any information you provide to the FBI can be used as the basis for further surveillance and investigation of your community,” a Muslim Advocates lawyer had said. “So you really don’t want to be putting yourself in a situation where you’re providing anybody with information about people in your community that the FBI is now gonna follow up and start investigating those people.”

But instead of showing respect to the American victims of terrorism, Attorney General Lynch went to a pro-terror group and promised to crack down on the real threat. Anti-Muslim rhetoric.

“Obviously the incidents in Paris were a tragedy,” Lynch conceded, but her focus was on Islamophobia.

DIANA WEST: “TOWARD SOVIET AMERICA”, THE USSR’S MEIN KAMPF FOR AMERICAN TAKEOVER……..

When never really did win the Cold War.

Crystal Ball Communism: “Toward Soviet America”

Written by: Diana West
Monday, November 30, 2015 5:23 AM 

Toward Soviet America by William Z. Foster, CPUSA chairman, was first published in 1932. Later, copies of the book would be purged and almost eliminated entirely from American bookstores and libraries in what was presumably the CP response to the latest Moscow line; but surely it was also to try to put this spitting Soviet-American cat back in the bag. Interestingly, the book would be reprinted in 1961 with a foreword and commentary by the chairman of the House Committee on Un-American Activities, Rep. Francis E. Walter, who recommended that every American read it as a blueprint of Soviet intentions much like Mein Kampf was a blueprint of Hitler’s. The 1932 version (sans HCUA commentary) is now available online.

For the first time, I just picked up my new 1961 copy, formerly from the library of the late, great Stanton Evans, opened it at random, and found myself reading about what the Soviet-American world of tomorrow looked like back in 1932 to a Communist Party official under Stalin’s tight control. Eight decades later, it is shocking how many of Foster’s Kremlin-approved prophesies have come true — more counter-conventional evidence of the extent to which our “victory” in the so-called Cold War was in fact an ideological rout, particularly at home. This is a main theme of exploration in American Betrayal. 

What continues to be clear is that none of this is “history.” Just from today’s headlines, for example, it is reported that the IMF is likely to promote China’s yuan into the “basket of currencies” on a par with the dollar. This isn’t a brand new, discrete development so much as it is the latest installment of a continuing Communist saga. That would be Communist China, of course, and that would be the same IMF whose first US director was Harry Dexter White, a Communist agent-extraordinaire inside the Roosevelt and Truman administrations, whose personal machinations on Stalin’s behalf greatly assisted, among other world-changing events, the cataclysmic Communist takeover of China in 1949.

ISLAMIC STATE THREATENS THE UNITED STATES……

We are in the middle of World War III, time for people to wake up already.

Islamic State

EXCLUSIVE — Islamic State: ‘The Threat to the United States’

A Mclean, Virginia-based defense think-tank has published a prescient white-paper on the Islamic State terror group, which has been made available exclusively to Breitbart News prior to its release.

The Threat Knowledge Group (TKG), headed by Katherine C. Gorka, its President, and Dr. Sebastian Gorka, the Chair of Military Theory at Marine Corps University and a Breitbart Contributor, released a comprehensive study Monday titled “ISIS: The Threat to the United States.”

After last week’s attacks in Paris that killed over one-hundred people and wounded hundreds more, particular national attention has turned to national security issues, as the American people continue to fear that the United States is becoming more vulnerable to jihadist attacks.

“The scope and lethality of the Paris attack changes everything. The U.S. will have to take the domestic threat of ISIS much more seriously now,” Threat Knowledge Group President Katherine Gorka told Breitbart News.

“We wanted to do this study because we felt that the Administration was downplaying the domestic threat of ISIS, focusing instead on ‘right-wing extremism.’ The problem with that is that it means law enforcement is not prepared. They’re looking out the window while the threat is coming in the door,” she added.

Threat Knowledge Group supports the Defense Department and FBI with strategic analysis and training, and this latest report unveils the Islamic State’s recruitment network inside of the United States.

A delegation of the American Congress has asked to visit The Netherlands for a dialogue, but have not received a positive answer.  Insiders say that Minister Koenders of Foreign Affairs (Labor Party) is not interested in the visit.  The reason appears to be that he considers it too expensive and the employees of his ministry feel it will involve too much work.

The Americans want to come because The Netherlands will be chairing the EU during the first half of 2016.   Mario Diaz-Balart, the leader of the intended Congress delegation, said this is a slap in the face for Congress.

DIANA WEST: “CULTURE” AS VICTIM POLITICS ARE ACTUALLY CULTURAL ASSAULT…….

What’s taking place on US campuses is nothing more than classic cultural marxism.

It’s an all out assault on established American cultural institutions that defines what country is. To understand the dynamic taking place, we have to turn to Bill Whittle who explains what exactly is “Political Correctness”. It’s the bulwark protecting, “The Narrative”, by which cultural marxists attack the civil society from a multitude of directions.

Each attack seems independent of the other, supposed racial issues, pseudo gender issues, supposed homosexual rights, feminism, social justice etc etc. and the list goes on, but they’re all related.

The Cultural Revolution at Yale, Part 2 (Part 1 here)

Written by: Diana West
Thursday, November 12, 2015 5:11 AM 

Portrait  of Elihu Yale by Enoch Seeman, circa 1717

Today’s Yale Daily News carries an account headlined, “Race teach-in draws large crowd.”

The “teach-in” (1960s retread phrase), we learn, was organized by “Yale’s four cultural centers.”

For half a nano-second I wondered what they could possibly be. The British Art Center? The Dramat? Hah. Yale’s four cultural centers are as follows: the Afro-American Cultural Center, the Native American Cultural Center, the Asian American Cultural Center and La Casa Cultural.

“Culture” as victim-politics, in other words; and victim-politics as cultural assault. Hence, Yale’s four cultural centers are, namely, four barracks of disaffection with “Yale” as a whole — with Western culture as a whole — where victim-groups form, assemble and drill for the next assault on that, our, culture. One wonders what ground is left to conquer.

[…]

As readers know, the use of language as a mechanism of thought control is a subject of abiding interest and alarm in my own work, including in The Death of the Grown-Up and American Betrayal, where the origins of what we inadequately and opaquely call “PC” are examined (example here). Controlling language is the basis of controlling thought, which is the basis of the totalitarian assault on our constitutional liberties, starting with the First Amendment. Freedom of thought, certainly freedom of speech, has perished where it was once thought to be inculcated in liberal arts education.

Lux et veritas? No, ideology uber alles.

To accept, let alone teach, that there exists a set “language with which to analyze these issues” — i.e., a language of re-education that turns pathologies and illnesses into “issues” of supposed urgency and import — is to hijack the mental processes and steer them in the direction of group hysteria. Aggrievement is met with appeasement; appeasement leads to humiliation. The frenzy of the Cultural Revolution springs to mind; this time around, maybe, as the Four Cultural Center Revolution.

KANSAS: ANTI-SEMITE SENTENCED TO DEATH FOR MURDERS OF THREE CHRISTIANS AT JEWISH SITE…….

Man convicted in Jewish site killings is sentenced to death

A judge followed a jury’s recommendation and sentenced an avowed anti-Semite to death Tuesday for the fatal shootings of three people at Kansas Jewish sites.

Johnson County District Judge Thomas Kelly Ryan imposed the sentence for Frazier Glenn Miller Jr., who was convicted of one count of capital murder, three counts of attempted murder, and assault and weapons charges for the April 2014 shootings in suburban Kansas City. The same jury that convicted him in August recommended that Miller be sentenced to death.

Miller said he shot his victims because he wanted to kill Jewish people before he dies. He suffers from chronic emphysema and has said he doesn’t have long to live. A doctor testified during trial that Miller is ill and likely has five to six years left.

All three of his victims were Christians.

He killed William Corporon, 69, and Corporon’s 14-year-old grandson, Reat Griffin Underwood, at the Jewish Community Center in Overland Park, Kansas. He then shot 53-year-old Terri LaManno at the nearby Village Shalom retirement center.

Survey: Alarming Portion of Syrian Immigrants in Europe Are Islamic State Sympathizers

As the United States moves forward in letting 10,000 Syrian refugees into the country, a survey says that 13 percent of the Syrian refugees in Europe sympathize with the Islamic State.

The poll by the Arab Center for Research and Policy Studies surveyed 900 refugees in what it called “the largest public opinion poll conducted in the Arab region.”

Syrian families wait their turn to register at the UNHCR center in the northern city of Tripoli, Lebanon, Wednesday, March. 6, 2013 (AP Photo/Bilal Hussein)

The survey also found that 10 percent of the displaced Syrian refugees have a mixed or lukewarm — but not entirely negative — view of the terror group. In response to the survey’s findings, Investors Business Daily pointed out, “That means 23% — or almost 1 in 4 — could be susceptible to ISIS recruitment.”

Asked about national security concerns over Syrian refugees, FBI Director James Comey told the House Judiciary Committee, “The only thing we can query is information that we have. And so if we have no information on someone, they’ve never crossed our radar screen, never been a ripple in the pond, there will be no record of them there. And so it will be challenging.”

And National Counterterrorism Center Director Nicholas Rasmussen added, “The intelligence picture we have of this particular conflict zone is not as rich as we would like it to be.”

About 70 percent of the Syrians that the United States is letting into the country area young men, which fits the profile of Islamic State terrorists, according to Investors Business Daily.

US: CAMPUS MAOISTS OF THE THIN SKIN GENERATION…….

The fact that professors are actually intimidated by these half brained low lives dressed up as students is a testament to their own mediocrity.

US academia models the Swedish state. After decades of radical leftistism, extremist stupidity is the desired norm, common sense, reason and rational thinking has gone out the window, what’s remains is muddled mush tempered with hypersensitivity. Safe spaces for tyrants.

Students of history will notice an alarming similarity in the video above to the “struggle sessions” of Maoist China, a form of public shaming in which perceived enemies of the Party would be surrounded in a public place by Red Guards, Mao’s most zealous supporters. The Red Guards would hurl abuse at their target until they confessed to their crimes.

Uninformed critics might argue that the Red Guards were a weapon of the Communist state, and not a genuine grassroots movement, but they’d be wrong: the Red Guards started out as a student movement, on Chinese campuses. Afraid yet?

ONLY CONSERVATIVES CAN SAVE THE AMERICAN CAMPUS–BUT SHOULD WE?

What does it take to generate a rabid, Maoist-style mob demanding political purges, on an Ivy League campus, in 2015? An email defending “offensive” Halloween costumes, apparently.

That’s what kicked off the latest nadir in campus zealotry, this time at no less a university than Yale. Typically the fall is a time when Yale students are obsessed with defeating arch-rival Harvard at football, a war on the gridiron that occasionally turn ugly. This year the sport of choice seems to be the public castigation of professors by students, a battle on the quadrangle destined to become just as menacing.

Outrage began at Yale a few days ago, after an email sent by Associate Master Erika Christakis became public knowledge. Christakis complained that universities were no longer safe for “regressive, or even transgressive, experience,” arguing that they had instead become places of “censure and prohibition.”

Since then, both Erika Christakis and her husband Nicholas Christakis, the Master of Silliman College at Yale, have been the targets of a rabid crusade by student witch-hunters to pressure the pair into resignation. This culminated last week in shocking footage of students surrounding Nicholas Christakis, screaming expletives at him and calling for his resignation.
