Members of Davidson College’s Young Americans for Freedom chapter took to their campus quad to get their peers’ thoughts on a brave new initiative: Students for Educational Equality.
Their proposal: Take a couple points away from students with GPAs in the top 10%, and give those points to the students with GPAs in the bottom 10% in order to ensure an equal opportunity for graduation.
Predictably, when students were asked to sign a petition urging their school to redistribute their hard-earned grades to someone who’d slacked off all semester, they objected.
“I don’t know about that… I kinda like people to work for what they get,” responded one student.
“Everyone works hard to attain their own GPA and I don’t think it’s necessarily fair,” said another when asked to sign the petition.
“I’m close to the bottom, I’ll do it,” said one student who apparently had something to gain by taking other students’ good grades.
The YAF members even got a professor to sign their petition to redistribute GPAs.
YAF’s GPA Redistribution project allowed Davidson YAF to ask their peers why they said it was wrong to redistribute GPAs, but thought the government should be redistributing wealth: “If it’s unfair to say that the people with the highest GPAs didn’t deserve it, why is it suddenly fair to say that successful people don’t deserve the money they earned?”
After Davidson YAF released their video, leftists on their campus were apparently triggered by the simple realization that people don’t owe the fruits of their labor to anyone else.
Why was she not arrested for rubbing the victims face in it with her provocactive dress?, wearing a logo of what appears to be an offensive image of a handgun, grenade, switchblade and machine gun then she talks about attending vigils, backlash, islamophobia, attacks on muslim women, hate with hate, ignorance, islam does not teach us (violence?), whilst her imam colleague talks about people misunderstanding barbaric sharia laws, its obvious the talking burka was wearing her thoughts whilst speaking her taqiyya
This is the dramatic moment a protective father caught his daughter's boyfriend snogging another girl - before posting footage of the confrontation online. The angry dad spotted his would-be son-in-law kissing and cuddling another girl in a park. He began filming the young man in the act on a bench in Mexican capital Mexico City. In the clip, as he approaches they couple, they realise they are being filmed and from the boy's reaction it is clear he knows the cameraman. The furious dad then begins to interrogate the young man about his cheating antics. He can be heard angrily asking him: 'Is this how you treat my daughter?' The embarrassed boyfriend does not respond to the father, instead looking down in shame. The daughter's love rival, who wears a white vest, appears uncomfortable at the confrontation. After a while the raging father turns his anger from the young man and addresses her. He asks her if she knew that the boy she was with had a partner, at which point she picks up her rucksack and walks away. At the end of the video the dad warns the boy that he never wants to see him in his house again. He also tells the youngster that he should stay away from his daughter. By uploading the video online, he proved to his daughter that the lad was being unfaithful and also hoped to warn any other prospective girlfriends of his untrustworthy character.
This shocking footage shows the moment a driver mounts a pavement and chases a group of terrified students before ploughing into one at 30mph in a 'deliberate' attack. CCTV footage shows youngsters forced to run for their lives when a white Vauxhall Insignia sped across the road and mowed down a 17-year-old boy outside Havering College in Hornchurch, Essex. His friends scattered as the vehicle approached but he was hurled into the air after bouncing off the bonnet. The Vauxhall, carrying two passengers, was driven between a parked car and a wall at more than 30mph to reach the group, according to a witness. It was then driven away at speed leaving the teen in agony. One man, who asked not to be named, said: 'He started from a parked position and then accelerated and mounted the pavement and chased them down. 'It was potentially deadly, it's very dangerous and that path is usually busy with pedestrians. 'He drove between a parked car and a wall at more than 30mph I reckon, but probably more, he missed the parked car by inches, I would have a hard time driving my van through that gap and he did it at speed. 'He used his car as a weapon, this guy needs to be taken off the streets. 'The kids were lucky, there were about six or seven of them running but they had no chance of getting away, an older person would never have got out the way, he could have easily killed them.' The teen was rushed to hospital with cuts and bruises to his left arm and leg and was later discharged. Detectives are hunting the driver, believed to be from the Romford area, and are treating the incident on May 15 as grievous bodily harm with intent. The witness added: 'He must have been nutty to do it, if it's who I think it is it's a known thug from the Romford area. 'The young lad was very very lucky to have only come away with bruises.' A Scotland Yard spokesperson said: 'At 3pm on Monday, 15 May police were called to Havering College of Further Education, Ardleigh Green Road, Hornchurch. 'A white Vauxhall saloon car mounted the pavement, drove into a group of students and then left without stopping. 'London Ambulance Service attended and took a 17-year-old man to an east London hospital with cuts and bruises to his left arm and leg. He was later discharged. 'There are no other reported injuries. This incident is being treated as GBH with intent. It is not being treated as terrorist related. 'Enquires continue. No arrests have been made.'
Former Navy SEAL Carl Higbie had a blunt response Thursday to singer Katy Perry's comments after the Manchester terrorist attack: "go to hell."
Perry said in an interview Tuesday—the day after the attack on concertgoers leaving an Ariana Grande show in Britain killed 22 people and wounded dozens of others—that people should "just unite and love on each other."
"I think that the greatest thing we can do is just unite and love on each other and like, no barriers, no borders, like we all need to just co-exist," Perry added.
Higbie, a vocal Donald Trump supporter, disagreed with Perry during an appearance on Fox News. He said the argument that social segregation of Muslims in Britain produced the Manchester attack was inaccurate because Muslims tend to choose to self-segregate.
"They feel isolated from the community because they isolate themselves… they've made no attempt to assimilate to the surrounding population," Higbie said. "It is unbelievable that they feel that they are isolated because of some external force. No, they are doing it to themselves."
Higbie then brought up Perry's comments and had harsh words for the singer.
"If you come to America, you're American and nothing else and American foremost," Higbie said. "And I think what this is is we don't have people who respect the culture of the United States of America. I mean, you have people like Katy Perry, for instance. I mean this woman has said, ‘Oh, we need to give them hugs.'"
Higbie turned and looked right into the camera.
"Go to hell, Katy Perry. Hold one of your concerts in Syria and see how that goes."
A man in Port St. Lucie, Florida, was seen on camera deflating a bounce house filled with kids during a party at his neighbor's house. It's unclear if the man will face any charges. The mother says that two kids were brought to the hospital, one for distress, the other to check for injuries after he had to be pulled out from under the heavy plastic.

THIS is the moment a female cyclist incessantly catcalled by the passenger of a van who asked if she was “on her period” apparently got revenge by ripping off the motor’s wing mirror.
The outburst was captured in London on the GoPro camera of a following motorcyclist.
As the van and the rider draw up at a red light one of the occupants asks the ponytailed cyclist: “Alright, want my number?”
Unsurprisingly the cyclist gives the wannabe Lotharios short shrift and tells them to go away and slaps the side of the van.
Leaning out the window, the passenger responds by telling her: “That’s not very ladylike, is it? What charm school did you go to?”
He then adds: “Shut up you old dog, you on your period?” before trying to touch her on the shoulder.
The light then turns green and the cyclist gestures at the van as it pulls away.
President Donald Trump’s push to get in front of the pack at a NATO summit generated indignation in the Balkans and garnered attention on social media — but the man he shoved aside took it in stride.
At Thursday’s gathering in Brussels, Trump put his right hand on the right arm of Montenegro Prime Minister Dusko Markovic and pushed himself ahead as NATO leaders walked inside the alliance’s new headquarters and prepared for a group photo.
Trump then stood near Markovic and spoke to Lithuanian President Dalia Grybauskaite.
Video of the incident spread on social networks in multiple languages.
“It seems Donald Trump did not want that anyone overshadows his presence at the summit,” said the Montenegro newspaper Vijesti.
Other Balkan websites ran headlines such as “America First” and “Where do you think you are going?”
Markovic himself, however, shrugged off the slight.
“It didn’t really register. I just saw reactions about it on social networks. It is simply a harmless situation,” he told reporters after the summit.
Instead of being insulted, he took the opportunity to thank Trump for supporting Montenegro’s membership in NATO. The small former Yugoslav republic is slated to become NATO’s 29th member next month.
And in any case, Markovic said, “it is natural that the president of the United States is in the front row.”
Los Angeles police detectives are asking for help identifying a man, who used race-based guilt trips to gain access to and steal iPhones from a store in the Winnetka before doing the same thing again in Ventura County.
According to police, the man walked into a Boost Mobile store in the 19700 block of Vanowen Street, near Corbin Avenue shortly after noon Tuesday. He asked a clerk to show him new iPhones, and when the clerk refused to bring out the new phones and instead directed him to the tethered display phones, the suspect, who is black, accused the employee of being racist, police said.
“Fearing being labeled a racist, the salesperson presented the new iPhones to the suspect,” according to and LAPD statement. “Once the phones were in his reach, the suspect grabbed the phones and fled the business.”
Focused On The Wrong Sh*t
Filmmaker Ami Horowitz recently interviewed attendees of a Kansas City "white privilege" conference. See how their thoughts compare to the views of actual black Americans when asked about "white privilege."
Ami quickly finds out that most black Americans agree that white privilege is complete bull shit despite the liberals that he interviews outside of the conference believing it is something everybody should be worried about.
Some seniors at one New York City City high school will not be able to attend their school's prom because it falls during a religious holiday.
Brooklyn Tech seniors will gather at Pier Sixty for the prom on June 3, but not all their classmates will be able to attend the big bash at the hot spot billed as the largest waterfront venue in Manhattan.
The party this year falls during Ramadan, a month-long time of religious fasting and prayer for observant Muslims.
"Obviously the date wasn't the best date," Pakeza Sahbbir, a senior who will be not attending, said. "You're not suppose to listen to music during Ramadan, so that's why it's not really allowed."
In an online petition, students are asking school officials to move the prom to another day so that everyone can participate. About 1,300 students go to Brooklyn Tech, but the school does not track religious affiliation.
"I know how it feels to fast," student Saima Afrin said. "I feel very tired throughout the day, so I won't want to go out. I'd sleep and stuff."
In an effort to accommodate everyone, school officials said they won't serve food at the prom until 9 p.m., after fasting ends at sundown.
The principal also met with the Muslim Student Association Tuesday to make sure this never happens again.
"If they changed (the date), it's going to loose a lot of money," student Nafin Rahman said. "So I don't think they want to lose a lot of money. Plus it's already really expensive."
Gunmen opened fire on two buses and a truck carrying Coptic Christians in Minya, Egypt on Friday, killing at least 26, including children. Some 26 people were also injured in the attack.
The group of between eight and 10 gunmen approached the convoy in three four-wheel-drive pickup trucks before opening fire, according to local media reports and the Egyptian Interior Ministry.
"They used automatic weapons," Essam el-Bedaiwy, governor of Minya told state television as cited by AFP.
Security chiefs established a perimeter around the scene and launched a hunt for the attackers, setting up dozens of roadblocks in the area and sending out patrols to scour the desert road.
The Grand Imam of al-Azhar Ahmad al-Tayeb believes the attack was intended to destabilize the country. Al-Azhar is a center of Islamic learning in Egypt that dates back more than 1,000.
"I call on Egyptians to unite in the face of this brutal terrorism," al-Tayeb said while on a visit to Germany, as cited by Reuters.
The shooting, which occurred on the eve of Ramadan, happened as the victims travelled from Beni Suef province to the Coptic Orthodox Anba Samuel monastery near the southern city of Minya, 250km (155 miles) south of Cairo, according to local security sources, cited by Haaretz.
There is no immediate claim of responsibility. Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi called an emergency meeting of security officials in the wake of Friday’s attack, Reuters reports.
Al-Bedaiwy confirmed the preliminary death toll, reports Reuters.
Ambulances dispatched from the cities of Beni Suef and Minya are transporting victims to local hospitals in Adwa, Minya, Maghagha, according to local news outlet Youm7.
The US Embassy in Cairo warned of an imminent but unspecified terrorist attack on the night of May 24.
“The Embassy is aware of a potential threat posted on a website by the Hassm Group, a known terrorist organization, suggesting some kind of unspecified action this evening,” the Egypt mission said in a statement.
The three-month state of emergency, declared in the wake of the Palm Sunday bombings in Tanta and Alexandria, is yet to expire.
On April 9, twin suicide bombs targeting Coptic Christians killed at least 44 people and injured more than 118 in Tanta and Alexandria. Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) claimed responsibility for the attacks.
The mosque attended by the Manchester suicide bomber has been described as a “jihadist” institution, and it has previously been accused of raising funds for an al-Qaeda affiliated terror group.
The Didsbury mosque was well known to Salman Abedi and his direct family. The terrorist learnt the Quran there, his brother taught Islamic lessons there, and his father, Abu Abedi, was a “well known” figure who performed the Muslim call to prayer.
On the ‘Muslims in Britain’ mosques directory, the institution is described as a “Salafi-Ikhwani” mosque, which “is a nicer way of saying jihadist”, according to Ghaffar Husain, head outreach at the Quilliam Foundation, a think-tank that has advised the Government.
Salafism is an austere, fundamentalist strain of Islam, with adherents aiming to live as Muhammad and the first Muslim did in the seventh century.
The mosque’s management is described as Syrian and Arab, and the city’s Libyan community, one of the largest in the UK, reportedly frequents it. The Abedi family lived just a short distance from the building and neighbours have talked about them flying a Libyan flag flying from their house.
Mr. Abedi is believed to have visited Libya earlier this year and, according to friends, returned a few weeks ago. His family left Libya as asylum seekers, and police are probing alleged links to the hard line Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG), which was until recently affiliated to al-Qaeda.
“[His farther] Abu Ismail comes and goes between here and there,” a family friend told The Guardian. “I can’t believe [Salman Abedi] would have been radicalised in Tripoli. All those types have been driven out of the city. It must have happened here.
“But what was he doing, murdering all those people. There must have been somebody influencing him. It’s terrible. He was off his head,” they said.
"I am so happy after this confrontation with a black bear during our spring hunt. No wounds except a bruised elbow and ego where the bear threw me down. Genuinely happy that this was a non fatal or tragic outcome. Proving that the black bear is a wild and unpredictable animal. Again so happy with the outcome."
The owner of Ann Arbor's Sava's Restaurant said Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials took at least three of her employees into custody the morning of Wednesday, May 24. She said they were being released later Wednesday.
ICE agents were in the restaurant, 216 S. State, around 11:30 a.m. and had breakfast before entering the kitchen area, where they took three people into custody, said owner Sava Lelcaj. She was not in the restaurant at the time.
"They came in looking for one person, who was not on duty," said Lelcaj.
Instead, the agents started to question kitchen workers and apprehended three people who were taken to ICE's Detroit office, Lelcaj said. Those people are now being released, she said Wednesday afternoon.
Lelcaj said her company, Savco Hospitality, goes through a vetting process to make sure potential employees have the right documentation to work in the United States.
"We do the best we can to hire, to vet and screen and be compliant," said Lelcaj.
This guy made the kid talk until every last person was named. You know what the say about snitches..
The good folks over at Tactical Shit know how to really stop Isis, by using their lust for ravaging goats when women aren't readily available.
Watch this hilarious video they put together in order to mock the terrorist group and their love for goats.
A former Diablo Valley College professor was in custody Wednesday evening after his arrest Wednesday afternoon in Oakland, according to county records.
Eric Clanton, 28, was being held on $200,000 bail after he was booked into Berkeley City Jail Wednesday evening. He was arrested on suspicion of use of a firearm during a felony with an enhancement clause and assault with a non-firearm deadly weapon.
Clanton faces a 9 a.m. Friday arraignment hearing at Oakland’s Wiley W. Manuel courthouse.
A former Diablo Valley College staff directory Web page said Clanton, who earned a bachelor’s degree at California State University, Bakersfield, and a master’s degree at San Francisco State in philosophy, worked at the school since 2015, teaching an “introduction to philosophy with a background in teaching ethics, critical thinking, and comparative philosophy East/West” with “primary research interests” of ethics and politics.
Employee records for 2015 and 2016 listed Clanton as a lecturer with the California State University system and a philosophy instructor with the Contra Costa Community College District, according to Transparent California.
Berkeley police were not immediately available to confirm any connection between Clanton’s arrest and social-media-fueled accusations within the last month about attacks during at least one of a series of protests earlier this year.
The cost of harboring illegal immigrants in the United States is a staggering $113 billion a year -- an average of $1,117 for every “native-headed” household in America -- according to a study conducted by the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR).
The study, a copy of which was provided to FoxNews.com, “is the first and most detailed look at the costs of illegal immigration ever done,” says Bob Dane, director of communications at FAIR, a conservative organization that seeks to end almost all immigration to the U.S.
FAIR's opponents in the bitter immigration debate describe the organization as "extremist," though it is regularly called upon to testify before Congress.
Groups that support immigration reform immediately attacked FAIR's report and pointed out that it is the polar opposite of the Perryman Report, a 2008 study that found illegal immigration was actually a boon to the American economy. It estimated that illegal immigrants add $245 billion in Gross Domestic Product to the economy and account for 2.8 million jobs.
The FAIR report comes as President Obama moves immigration reform to the top of his agenda, and it is likely to be a rallying point for those who oppose the president. At a speech Thursday at American University in Washington, D.C., Obama argued that the entire immigration system is broken and needs sweeping reforms. Among the changes he said are needed is "a path for [farm] workers to earn legal status," which the president's critics called an opening for a new amnesty program.
FAIR's report argues that there are two choices in the immigration debate: “One choice is pursuing a strategy that discourages future illegal migration and increasingly diminishes the current illegal alien population through denial of job opportunities and deportations. The other choice,” it says, “would repeat the unfortunate decision made in 1986 to adopt an amnesty that invited continued illegal migration.”
