University of Missouri walkouts / football team

Post by bmw » Mon Nov 09, 2015 9:51 am

With the backing of their head coach, football players at Missouri are threatening to stop participating in any football activities until the president of the university system is fired or resigns. In a late afternoon statement, though, the president declined to do so, saying instead that the school would start a systemwide diversity examination.

The players’ action stems from troubling racial incidents on the Columbia, Mo., campus, incidents that Missouri’s Legion of Black Collegians believes were poorly handled by Tim Wolfe. The campus-wide group announced its decision, using the hashtag #ConcernedStudent1950 and a photo of 32 black men on Twitter on Saturday night. Concerned Student 1950, the student activism group leading the protests, is named for the year Missouri first admitted African-American students.

That's fine, but why should they be taken seriously when their first demand requires that the University President acknowledge in a hand-written letter his "white male privilege" ?

I would not be surprised if some or all of the "hate crimes" being protested turn out to be fake, done by people to themselves to gain attention for a cause. Especially things painted on walls. The President of the University of Missouri was likely given a H*** golden parachute, at taxpayer and contributor expense, to just quietly go away, regardless if the "hate crimes" were fake or not. That seems to be what has happened in other instances found out later to be fake. If the "hate crime" turns out to be fake, you almost never hear about it except in the alternative media.

There is a comprehensive list of Fake Hate Crimes at the following site.

Did you happen to notice the Huffington Post and CBS News?

Truth transcends source. Laugh now. You are going to find out that all you are working for or against was based on many lies. Hopefully before some terrorist finishes you off, so you have time to contemplate the error of your ways.

One alleged racist incident has already been cast into serious doubt. It almost never takes long to disprove, like the clock boy "inventing" a clock built decades ago.

Why don't you go to a more credible source for your "facts"?

Like, maybe, The National Enquirer?

Turkeytop, do you think that Vladimir Putin would put up with this after he took over?

It's not the source, it's the seriousness of the charge.

They forced a President to resign with a fake source, then tried to cover their tracks with a fake confession by Mark Felt. If there had been such a source, it would have come out much earlier. They would have been so proud of themselves, they couldn't have kept their mouth shut.

So, you're an admirer of Putin, are you?


What do we know about this Federalist publication in which you place so much faith?

We might find more objective journalism at Al Jazeera

Launched in September 2013 as a “web magazine on politics, policy, and culture,” The Federalist is helmed by publisher Ben Domenech, a co-founder of the right-wing blog RedState.com and senior fellow at the Heartland Institute, a conservative think tank known for its opposition to climate science and funding from industry sources like the Koch brothers. Co-founder Sean Davis came to conservative journalism after a career in GOP politics, having worked for Gov. Rick Perry (R-TX) and Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK)


And what do we know about its founder, Ben Domenech?

Washington Post Blogger Quits After Plagiarism Accusations


A 24-year-old blogger for The Washington Post, Ben Domenech, resigned yesterday after being confronted with evidence that he had plagiarized articles in other publications.

His resignation came after writing six blog items in the three days he worked for Red America, a blog that The Post created to offer a conservative viewpoint on its Web site.

Mr. Domenech — who had worked in the Bush administration and was a founder of the conservative blog RedState.com — came under heavy criticism from liberal bloggers, who called his political views extreme.

They first pointed to previous comments by Mr. Domenech, who recently called Coretta Scott King a "communist."

But by late Thursday, the bloggers had found instances of what appeared to be plagiarism, including an article by Mr. Domenech in The New York Press that contained passages resembling an article that ran on the front page of The Washington Post.

Evidence of one instance of plagiarism first surfaced on the liberal blog Daily Kos on Thursday. A comment posted on the blog said a passage from an article by Mr. Domenech was nearly identical to a chapter from P. J. O'Rourke's book, "Modern Manners: An Etiquette Book for Rude People."
Other articles that contained passages that appeared to be copied were published in National Review Online, The New York Press and The Flat Hat, the student newspaper at the College of William and Mary, which Mr. Domenech attended.

Jim Brady, the executive editor of The Washington Post Web site, said that he knew that Mr. Domenech would be controversial but that a background check before he was hired did not reveal plagiarism.

"We've been catching a lot of grief on the blogs for not catching this ourselves, but obviously plagiarism is hard to spot," Mr. Brady said. He said The Post planned to hire another conservative blogger in Mr. Domenech's place.

In an interview, Mr. Domenech said he never "purposefully" plagiarized but admitted that some passages in his articles were identical to those previously published elsewhere.

He said one instance was the fault of an editor at the student newspaper, who he said inserted a passage from The New Yorker in an article without his knowledge. In a staff editorial posted on the Web site of The Flat Hat, the student newspaper, the editors called Mr. Domenech's actions, if true, deeply offensive.

Mr. Domenech also said that he may have mixed up his notes with articles from other authors.
"Frankly, if I had been less of a sloppy writer," he said, "this wouldn't be a problem."

He explained the passage that appeared to be copied from Mr. O'Rourke's book by saying that Mr. O'Rourke gave him permission.

Contacted at his home in New Hampshire, Mr. O'Rourke said that he had never heard of Mr. Domenech and did not recall meeting him.

"I wouldn't want to swear in a court of law that I never met the guy, Mr. O'Rourke said of Mr. Domenech, "but I didn't give him permission to use my words under his byline, no."
Mr. Domenech works full time at Regnery Publishing, a publisher of conservative authors like Michelle Malkin and Tony Blankley. Ms. Malkin, whose latest book was edited by Mr. Domenech, posted a column on her blog yesterday that described the evidence of plagiarism as "damning" and called for Mr. Domenech to resign from The Post.

A spokeswoman for Regnery, Angela Phelps, said that while Mr. Domenech remained an employee, the company would look into the accusations.

Mr. Domenech said he received an e-mail message from Kathryn Lopez of National Review, putting him on notice that the magazine planned to review his previous work.

Glenn Reynolds, who writes the blog Instapundit, said the bloggers were "motivated by a desire to get" Mr. Domenech.

"They didn't like him because he was a conservative and he was given real estate at The Washington Post," he said. "Their goal was to find something they could use to get rid of him, and they succeeded."

Mr. Domenech addressed his detractors yesterday in a blog post on RedState.com, where he will remain a contributor. "To my enemies: I take enormous solace in the fact that you spent this week bashing me, instead of America," he wrote.

Turkeytop, those are allegations and lies from the mainstream media... don't you see??!??!?!?!??!?

I always love it when someone tells me to ignore the biased, agenda-driven MSM and then they point me to some whacko blog for "the real truth." :rollin

There is no evidence that any of the incidents took place that would hold up in a fair court of law. The epithets have no video or sound evidence, only hearsay. And there are no pictures of the bathroom incident other than an image that has been on the internet for a year. There was no reason for the Missouri President to resign, except that he was likely offered a golden parachute. The Nazi symbol made of excrement has no relation to the type of bigotry being alleged. It's bizarre symbolism, and it has no ring of truth to it. I don't think even a drunk supremacist would have ever come up with such symbolism. Maybe marijuana induced paranoia or psychosis would cause such bizarre connections? Even that sounds like a stretch.

Or possibly Ben Domenech is suffering the final stages of syphilis and his brain has become demented.

Regardless of who succeeds and fails at telling the truth in reporting what happened, the stories of so called racist incidents at the University of Missouri, which caused wide spread demonstrations and the resigning of officials, are quickly falling apart. The professor who physically prevented an Asian American reporter from reporting has apologized and resigned her appointment.

The truth is that White racist organizations, and individuals who perpetrate these types of acts, are virtually nonexistent, on college campuses and in America, and have been for 50 years or more. Incidents reported likely either didn't happen or are false flag operations. These reported incidents are used for fundraising and other political purposes.

You Leftists are the paranoid, dope smoking, psychotics.

I BET you know a lot of Stoners. They are OUT OF CONTROL today.

Like Ferguson, MO, this is another incident of fomenting racial unrest based upon lies an innuendo.

What I find most confusing is that now, the people much maligned by the black community of late, the police, are being asked to respond to 911 calls from black students that hear or see something that they find offensive. Huh? Since when is saying something offensive a crime?

Did anyone who chanted "dead cops now." go to jail for saying that?
