A Michigan high school forbids conservative students from distributing a newspaper. Two of the students tell their story.
I have gone to The Community College of Baltimore County in Maryland for a few years now. During this time I have taken many different types of classes to fulfill requirements, most of them in which I came up against leftist propaganda.
Harvard President Larry Summers got in hot water when he publicly stated that there were “innate” differences between all the sexes that keep some women from reaching higher levels in the sciences.

Churchill’s “little Eichmanns” comment alone is clear evidence of a substandard mind and would naturally lead one to investigate Churchill’s other writings. It turns out, two respected professors have written extensively on Churchill’s copious fraudulent research.
During the last week or so, I’ve been contemplating how to continue addressing the whole liberal-indoctrination-in-college thing.
