College Kids Pledge Hundreds for Hamas to Bomb Israeli Schools and Cafés

Political satirist and video maker Ami Horowitz recently visited the campus of Portland State University, posing as a member of Hamas. He asked students to donate to the terrorist organization to help bomb schools, cafés, and other “soft targets” that would help destroy Israel. Shockingly, Horowitz raised several hundred dollars from students who agreed that Israel needs to be “wiped off the map.”

Let’s say $27 since that seems to be my Bernie donation…

In an editorial targeted towards opponents of President Barack Obama‘s letter telling schools they could be sued by the federal government unless they allowed transgender students to use the bathrooms and showers of their choice, The Charlotte Observer told opponents to just get over it.

Taking the fear out of bathrooms – Charlotte Observer

This is what the Obama administration nudged the rest of the country toward Friday. Yes, the thought of male genitalia in girls’ locker rooms – and vice versa – might be distressing to some. But the battle for equality has always been in part about overcoming discomfort

Portland school board bans climate change-denying materials

In a move spearheaded by environmentalists, the Portland Public Schools board unanimously approved a resolution aimed at eliminating doubt of climate change and its causes in schools.

“It is unacceptable that we have textbooks in our schools that spread doubt about the human causes and urgency of the crisis,” said Lincoln High School student Gaby Lemieux in board testimony. “Climate education is not a niche or a specialization, it is the minimum requirement for my generation to be successful in our changing world.”

The resolution passed Tuesday evening calls for the school district to get rid of textbooks or other materials that cast doubt on whether climate change is occurring and that the activity of human beings is responsible. The resolution also directs the superintendent and staff to develop an implementation plan for “curriculum and educational opportunities that address climate change and climate justice in all Portland Public Schools.”

Global Warming & Transgenders: Liberals Deny Science When It Suits Them | National Review

The New York Times recently reported about A. J. Jackson’s travails in a Vermont high school. “There were practical issues,” Anemona Hartocollis writes. “When he had his period, he wondered if he should revert to the girls’ bathroom, because there was no place to throw away his used tampons.”

Now, one can have sympathy for the transgendered – I certainly do – while simultaneously holding to the scientific fact that boys do not menstruate. This is a fact far more settled than the very best climate science. Perhaps it’s rude to say so, but facts do not cease to be facts simply because they offend.
