Havard Receives ‘Code Red’ Rating From Campus Free Speech Watchdog for Banning ‘Racial Stereotypes’

The “Code Red” rating means that they have concluded that this policy “clearly and substantially restricts freedom of speech.”

Harvard University has received a “Code Red” rating from a free speech watchdog group after banning students from using “racial stereotypes,” but refusing to explain what that means.

The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) is a nonpartisan nonprofit that aims to “defend and sustain the individual rights of students and faculty members at America’s colleges and universities.”

FIRE’s poor rating is based on a policy that “defines racial harassment as actions on the part of an individual or group that demean or abuse another individual or group because of racial or ethnic background. Such actions may include, but are not restricted to, using racial epithets, making racially derogatory remarks, and using racial stereotypes.”

The “Code Red” rating means that they have concluded that this policy “clearly and substantially restricts freedom of speech.”

“A ‘clear’ restriction is one that unambiguously infringes on what is or should be protected expression. In other words, the threat to free speech at a red light institution is obvious on the face of the policy and does not depend on how the policy is applied,” the group states.

The university also called on students to snitch on each other in the student handbook if they believe that this vague policy has been violated.

“The College encourages undergraduates who believe that they have been the object of harassment to seek information and advice concerning applicable harassment policies, informal resolution and formal complaints, and counseling and other services. In cases of racial harassment, students may always seek the assistance of their Resident Dean, Faculty Dean, or Racial Harassment Hearing Officer in the Office of the Dean of Harvard College,” the handbook states.

The  handbook section on racial harassment continues on to say:

“Some reported incidents of harassment involve stereotyping or insensitive or offensive behavior that is the result of miscommunication or lack of communication rather than malicious intent. Calling the matter to the attention of the person or group engaged in such behavior is often enough to bring a stop to it. A person seeking resolution with the help of an adviser may ask the adviser to intervene in order to make the offender aware of their behavior. This intervention may result in an apology to the offended person, changes in behavior, and closure of the incident, thus providing the desired resolution,” it reads. “Where an instructional relationship exists between the parties, changing that relationship may also be helpful. On the other hand, if the offensive behavior continues, intervention may be only the beginning of a longer, more complex process of resolution and remedy.”

A big part of the reason this policy was flagged by the organization is that they have not defined a “racial stereotype” or how this policy is enforced on campus, College Fix reports. Multiple attempts by the news outlet to get more information about the policy went unanswered.

You Love To See It: Rich Writer Cheers Rioters Burning Poor Areas, Calls Them ‘Animals’ When They Get To His

This is the best “life comes at you fast” of all time.

Published

on

A rich NBA writer was gleefully cheering as Minneapolis rioters burned down poor neighborhoods, but quickly changed his tune when they got to his area.

Chris Martin Palmer, a well known sportswriter, was tweeting things like “burn that sh-t down. Burn it all down,” when the rioters burned down an affordable housing project that was under construction.

Just days later, the riots began to creep closer to his home in a Los Angeles gated community, at which time the rioters became “animals.”

“They just attacked our sister community down the street. It’s a gated community and they tried to climb the gates. They had to beat them back. Then destroyed a Starbucks and now are in front of my building. Get these animals TF out of my neighborhood. Go back to where you live,” Palmer wrote, referring to the lower income areas they previously destroyed.

“Tear up your own shit. Don’t come to where we live at and tear our neighborhood up. We care about our community. If you don’t care about yours I don’t give a shit,” he added.

As he got called out on Twitter, he pretended that he only supported “peaceful” protesters all along, and wasn’t cheering for the arson.

“Make no mistake about it those who were looting were not protestors. They were criminals who just blended in. Hell bent on stealing and property destruction. When the legit protestors left midday everything went off the rails,” he wrote.

When someone tweeted at him saying “you can’t be with the chaos one minute then when it’s at your front door you switch it up,” to which the hypocrite replied “you better damn well believe I can.”

He was ratioed, of course.

Hilariously, Palmer also attended the riots and bragged about being tear gassed, in someone else’s neighborhood, of course.

The people who “don’t care” about their communities are people like this elderly disabled woman who now has no where to shop. She tearfully told a reporter that “George is in a better place than we are,” and said that she wanted to “go where George did,” as she watched the rioters destroy her neighborhood.

Funny how Palmer believes the destruction is all fun and games until it threatened him, even though he can actually afford to lose — unlike the woman above.

Nick Fuentes Does America First Groyper Chant on Live TV

“GROYPER! GROYPER! GROYPER!”

Published

on

Nicholas Fuentes, one of the leaders of a growing America First movement in the United States, bravely crashed a Florida news report to do a “Groyper” chant.

Fuentes hosts a political commentary show on DLive that has thousands of regular viewers.

Riots have been sweeping the nation after a black man died in the custody of Minneapolis Police on Monday. There have been murders, arson, kidnappings, and countless businesses have been destroyed by looting.

On Saturday, a white shop owner was stoned by a mob who was trying to loot his business. He appeared to be in critical condition. Another elderly white man was brutally jumped by the mob for trying to defend himself and his vehicle, before they turned his car over and lit it on fire.

As “Conservative Inc.,” the mainstream Republican organizations, continue to cave to pressure from leftists and silence, exclude, or “cancel” more and more interesting right-wing figures and voices — a dissident right has began to grow and organize.

From forming their own student groups, to organizing events that counter the “gatekeepers,” this movement, which largely believes in stopping immigration, ending senseless wars, and putting America’s citizens first, has been making major waves.

In the fall, the “Groyper War” took aim at more neoconservative figures on the right and asked tough questions during their speaking events.

During the “Groyper War,” Rep. Dan Crenshaw infamously told a young right-wing student who asked him a question about Israel at an event that he would “regret” doing so. Ben Shapiro gave a 45 minute long speech calling the Groyper students asking questions, and Fuentes, who became the de facto leader of the Groyper movement “alt-right.”

The dissident right also hosted an event to counter CPAC, called the America First Political Action Conference (AFPAC). The event featured speeches from “cancelled” right-wing figures, including Fuentes, plus former Daily Caller editor Scott Greer, American Identity Movement’s Patrick Casey, and conservatice icon Michelle Malkin.

Malkin’s gained the disdain of neoconservatives when she refused to disavow Fuentes and other young America First students during the “Groyper War.” Her refusal to participate in the cancel mob lead to her being removed as a speaker by the Young America’s Foundation (YAF).

UN Posts List of ‘Gender Neutral’ Terms For Normal Words — Your Landlord is Now Your ‘Owner’

Most absurdly, the UN wants you to now refer to your landlord and your owner.

Published

on

The United Nations are being brutally mocked on social media after posting a list of “gender neutral” terms to replace completely normal words.

Most absurdly, the UN wants you to now refer to your landlord and your owner.

“What you say matters,” the official UN account tweeted. “Help create a more equal world by using gender-neutral language if you’re unsure about someone’s gender or are referring to a group.”

The tweet included a link to the website for United Nations Entity for Gender Equality, also known as ‘UN Women,’ which appeared to be offline. It also included a small list of words that they have decided are problematic.

The tweet was met with immediate mockery to the point where they were brutally ratioed. Within six hours, the post had 17,200 responses and only 4,000 “likes.”

Commentators were especially astounded by the suggestion that you should call your landlord your owner. Others pointed out that some languages are gender specific and assign genders to inanimate objects, though it appears that the UN only takes issue with the English language.

People also called out how incorrect their suggestion of replacing “maiden name” with “family name” is.

“Maiden name and family name are distinct things though. The maiden name is the surname the person used to have before marriage. Family name can easily mean the surname they have now. You didn’t think think that one through, you’re creating ambiguity,” one user responded.

It sure is a good thing that the UN has nothing better to do during this pandemic than police language.
