Leftists Desensitize America’s Youth with Jersey Shore, Glee

Taken from Landmark Report on March 31, 2011:

During his lifetime, President Reagan called on the youth of the world to carry on the torch of freedom. He famously said, “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.”

While conservatives heed Reagan’s advice, liberals are keen to subvert America’s future. As a result, leftists encourage Obama zealots, instill fecklessness, and attack tradition through platforms like MTV, ABC Family, and similar cable outlets. My generation will suffer from the doings of Marxist-Leninists unless they sever ties with Jersey Shore and Glee.

Leftists embrace and laud these putrid shows. If viewers are too preoccupied with the latest Jersey Shore hookup or Glee drama, leftists can sneak heinous legislation, deliberately indoctrinate students, and wreak havoc under their noses. Paralyzing the youth with such cultural debris breeds contempt for conservatism.

HUMAN EVENTS editor and Obama Zombies author Jason Mattera recently had DJ Pauly D and “The Situation” on his radio program to discuss current affairs. When asked about Obama’s performance as President, both guys were quick to dodge Mattera’s question and immediately attributed his “success” to the undisputed, albeit disconcerting, success of their show. Their answers evidence the problem inset in giving morons a platform to speak and profit exorbitantly.

Inept and oversexed guidos now serve as model examples for men. Excessive hair gel, hot bodies, peanut-sized brains, and overcharged egos are top selling points in selecting a mate, ladies! Alas, leftists will expend men for loser-types who ignore societal problems and relish the status quo. Heaven forbid they run for President of the United States on a platform of universal “smushing” for all.

Leftists see the classic man as too smart, too overplayed, and too confident — therefore, he would question their motives and Obama’s radical transformation of America. Guys like DJ Pauly D and “The Situation” are perfects tools (no pun intended) to manipulate young people into acceptance of leftist policies. They are too concerned about maintaining appearances and raking up notches on their belts to care about the economy or national security. Instead, leftists want intellectually-deficient narcissists like them to proscribe to their deleterious belief system. This is applicable to the Jersey Shore girls, as well. Nevertheless, Jersey Shore stars would gladly exchange liberty for subservience to Big Government to prolong their fifteen minutes of fame.

Politically correct, blatantly anti-conservative shows are problematic, as well. Glee’s creators and actors talk about inclusion, but they solely admit Gleeks: Tree huggers, abortion advocates, gay-rights activists, environmentalists, and feminists are welcomed. In contrast, those who revere the Constitution, gun rights, traditional marriage, life, limited government, and personal responsibility must find another show to watch.

Virulent Palin-hater Kathy Griffin portrays right-wing, Christian evangelicals like Christine O’Donnell as dimwits, while Gwyneth Paltrow’s anti-abstinent character bemoans virginity among young people in exchange for engaging in sexual experimentation and correspondent promiscuity.

Notwithstanding, Glee creator Ryan Murphy assures us that the show promotes “inclusion”:

So what I want to do with this character is have someone who Christian kids and parents can recognize and say, ‘Oh, look — I’m represented there, too!’ If we’re trying to form a world of inclusiveness, we’ve got to include that point of view as well.

Doug Giles noted Glee’s dangerous grip on viewers in his recent Townhall column, “Glee’s Not For Me” with the following:

Geez, everyone’s got to love and applaud Glee and its overt homo/heterosexual junk or we’re bigoted, buckle-shoed troglodytic killjoys.

Young people are targets for these shows. It provides refuge from America’s political, societal, and economic woes. Leftists want a complacent youth beholden to kumbayah, collectivism, and socialism in tact to successfully destroy America.

The United States is hanging by a thread, and its successors are allowing it to slip from their fingers. Trashy television shows will persist and take America’s youth hostage, leaving them ill-prepared to enter adulthood. As a result, Generation Y must resist and become active in restoring our country’s greatness.

My Debut at Landmark Report…Get Ready!

I’ve been graciously asked to contribute to Landmark Report, a website that will be THE up-in-coming news source for North America. I will continue to write elsewhere, promising to deliver you quality articles that raise eyebrows, leave you second-guessing, and provide a teeny bit of controversy with this latest venture.

Since it’s hard to create new material in high frequency (given that I’m a college student, intern, and activist), I will produce an article specific to Landmark every other week and repost my Washington Times column there during the off-week.

I appreciate your continued readership and support of my work! It really means the world to me that all of you–whether you agree or disagree with my viewpoints–take time to read my stuff.  Thanks again!

My first column there will be *tentatively* up this evening (3/30) or tomorrow morning (3/31).

Must-See Video: Wall of Lies Will Combat MSA on Campus

Horowitz Freedom Center unveiled its Palestinian “Wall of Lies” several months ago for students to display on campus during “Israel Apartheid Week” this year.

Here is the promo video detailing the disturbing nature of that crazy week:

According to the Wall of Lies website, these are the schools that have jumped on board this effort:

These are the schools where campus organizations have signed up to participate in our campaign by either hosting film screenings, a speaker, displaying the Wall of Lies, or a combination of all three.  (note – while there are Israel Apartheid Weeks going on at some of these schools, this list refers to the schools that we are working with to promote the truth about the middle east conflict and is not indicative of all the anti-Israel activity on campus.) :

Being Conservative (and Female) Rocks

This past weekend, I had the pleasure of going to Clare Boothe Luce’s Western Women’s Summit (March 24-26) in beautiful Santa Barbara, California. Due to complications following my wisdom tooth surgery last year, I couldn’t attend the Summit in 2010. Nevertheless, I made up for my absence this year

This girl needs a vacation every now and then, so I decided, why not?

CBLPI’s Western Women’s Summit took place at the Reagan Ranch Center–YAF’s West Coast office and my former workplace. It was nice to return there for this occasion.

Here is information about the event that transpired last weekend:

Mark your calendars now for the Clare Boothe Luce Policy Institute‘s fourth annual Western Women’s Summit on March 25-26, 2011! Conservative women are stepping into leadership roles in this country more than ever before, so don’t miss your chance to be a part of the movement. At this exciting gathering of conservative women on the West Coast, you will meet and network with conservatives in your area, hear from dynamic speakers and learn how to fight for conservative principles. Speakers include: author S.E. Cupp; Teresa Scanlan, Miss America 2011; Keli Carender, National Coordinator of the Tea Party Patriots; Ann McElhinney; conservative filmmaker; and Dawn Wildman, California Tea Party Patriots. The Summit will take place in beautiful Santa Barbara, California and will include a private tour of President Ronald Reagan‘s former home, a picturesque ranch located in the hills of Santa Barbara. A welcome reception for attendees will take place at the Reagan Ranch Center on the evening of Thursday, March 24. The Summit is open to women of all ages and will include a special training seminar for college students. Men may attend as guests of registered women attendees. Please email the Summit coordinator Camille Hart with any questions at chart@cblpi.org.

Nonie Darwish also spoke as well, and gave a riveting speech about the dangers of Sharia Law.

Approximately 75 women (young and old activists alike) were in attendance.

Below is our group photo with Miss America 2011, Teresa Scanlan.

While many are quick to judge Miss America recipients, I will say that after spending the weekend talking to her and hanging out with Teresa Scanlan, this Miss America is a gem and down-to-Earth girl. She eats, contrary to popular belief, and is so passionate about combating eating disorders. Additionally, she is very conservative!

Teresa gave such a heartwarming speech about her Croatian heritage and family story. Her grandparents endured communism in Croatia before they immigrated to the United States. She emphasized how much she takes pride in their value system and how she’s incorporated their value system as her own. Additionally, Teresa revealed that she has brother that was put up for adoption by her  mother. She noted that after 31 years (last September) she and her family met her brother and didn’t hesitate to accept him into their family. Miss America 2011 was a lovely girl, and I wish her the best of luck in her endeavors!

Moreover, RedEye regular and FOX News Contributor S.E. Cupp was the keynote speaker for the Summit. My sister Anna Maria and I are pictured with her below:

Overall, I learned a lot of valuable things, listened to great speakers, met lovely girls, talked to donors, and enjoyed Santa Barbara. I encourage everyone to attend a Western Women’s Summit in the future–you don’t want to miss out on this opportunity!

Muslim Student’s Tweets Evidence Hate of Jews, Christians, Infidels

On March 8,  a McGill University student went on a tweeting rampage. His targets? Conservatives, libertarians, infidels, Jews, and non-Muslims.

Haaris Khan, who calls himself a “freedom fighter”, attended the screening of “Indoctrinate U” at the Montreal, Quebec campus. The event was hosted by the Conservative McGill and  Libertarian McGill groups.

Throughout the event, Khan repeatedly tweeted incendiary things. The statements varied from killing students to denouncing “traitors” to “being angry and frustrated” to waging jihad.

The hosts of “Indoctrinate U” were not aware of Khan’s malicious tweeting during the screening.

The McGill Tribune has the story below:

Khan made the threats at a screening of “Indoctrinate U,” a documentary, on March 8 hosted by Conservative McGill and Libertarian McGill. “I want to shoot everyone in this room,” he tweeted at one point during the film, adding, “I should have brought an M16.”

None of the 20 or so students at the screening knew about the threats at the time, the event’s organizers said. Khan sat in the back of the room and tweeted quietly using his BlackBerry.

The event’s organizers found out about the tweets on Thursday, said Kevin Pidgeon, a Conservative McGill member who attended the event. A friend of Brendan Steven, another Conservative McGill member, contacted Steven about the posts, Pidgeon said. After reviewing them, Steven and the event’s other organizers decided to call McGill Security.

Though Khan has since deactivated his Twitter account, Conservative McGill members, at the suggestion of the Montreal Police Department, took screenshots of his tweets for evidence. Over the span of about an hour and half, during the screening Khan railed against Jews and Zionists in 10 separate tweets.

“I’ve infiltrated a Zionist meeting,” Khan wrote in his first tweet, at 6:04 p.m., shortly after the event began. “I feel like I’m at a Satanist ritual.”

“Oh man, a Muslim girl just appeared,” he wrote in his next post. “I thought, like me, she’s a freedom fighter. Unfortunately, she’s a co-conspirator. Traitor.”

About half an hour into the screening, Khan’s tweets turned violent.

“My blood is boiling,” he wrote at 6:38 p.m. “I want to shoot everyone in this room. I’m frightened, alarmed, and downright pissed. Never been this angry.”

“This experience has hardened me into a soldier for freedom and truth,” Khan wrote about an hour later. He posted his last tweet, about bringing an M16, minutes later.

Khan continued tweeting angrily for much of the next day, though not always about Zionism or Conservative McGill. (He called the Boston Bruins defenceman Zdeno Chára a “giant penis” after Chára delivered a brutal hit to Montreal Canadiens forward Max Pacioretty that night.)

But at 1:14 p.m. the next day, Khan tweeted, “The jihad begins today.”

This incident should not go unnoticed, as it could easily happen here in the United States. Whenever a student openly vents about his desire  to carry out jihad, people should not take it lightly.

Muslim students affiliated with the respective MSA and MSU groups, or even individuals like Khan who espouse these violent beliefs, cannot be appeased to. They openly hate Jews, Christians, and others who do not proscribe to their belief system. Jews–particularly pro-Israel ones–cannot reach out to those who openly wish ill and death upon them.

If you haven’t already, watch the exchange between Horowitz and the Hamas girl from the event I hosted at UCSD on May, 10,  2010. This is the face of radical Islam on college campuses worldwide, especially in the United States.

Here’s another  example:

And most recently, a terrorist-sympathizing cleric didn’t hesitate to reiterate his beliefs:

I urge all Jews, conservatives, Christians, Democrats, and other individuals who support Israel and condemn Hamas/radical Islam to get involved to suppress this influence.

If you don’t fight fire with fire, you will get trampled on.

Defund Planned Parenthood Video Contest- Winning Video!

Here is the winning video of the “Defund Planned Parenthood” video contest.

It is a shocking albeit enlightening story from a young woman whose mother was forced to have countless abortions at the insistence of her father and Planned Parenthood.

“Repugnant” Anti-Asian Video From Airhead Draws Attention

A girl who calls herself Alexandra Wallace aired her grievances about Asian people. If you watch the video, Wallace–who’s enrollment at UCLA is questionable according to some reports–flaunts her cleavage and rants about Asians during preparation for finals week. It’s finals week–don’t you have anything better to do than to be an airhead?

Here’s the original, which was copied from Wallace’s account but later removed by her:

UPDATE: YouTube has since removed the video since it violates their “hate speech” policies.

Here’s the rebuttal, which is pretty hilarious:

Another spoof:

From the Daily Bruin:

A university spokesman called a viral YouTube video, titled “Asians in the Library,” “repugnant.”

The nearly 3-minute video shows a woman who claims to be a UCLA student making disparaging comments about Asian students.

The university has to yet to determine whether the woman in the video is a UCLA student, said university spokesman Phil Hampton. He added that the university is also looking into how the original video was posted.

“The comments on there are contrary to the values the university believes in,” Hampton said.

The original video was posted Sunday afternoon and has since been removed. Various copies have appeared on YouTube and other websites. Postings of the video say the speaker is a UCLA student named Alexandra Wallace. A number in the university directory listed under Alexandra Wallace was disconnected as of Sunday night.

As much as this petty rant is distasteful, free speech permits fools like this to talk. She didn’t do anything that would breach school code. FIRE has the details here:

The old saying is that when all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail. Just about every university’s “hammer” of choice when it comes to unpopular expression is the set of rules prohibiting harassment on campus. Indeed, Robert Naples, UCLA’s associate vice chancellor and dean of students, wasted little time in telling the Daily Bruin, UCLA’s student newspaper, that “We’ll be taking a look at the language that she uses in the video to see if it violates any codes under the student code, perhaps regarding harassment.”

That should be a short investigation. In order for something to qualify as peer-on-peer harassment on a college campus, it has to be (among other things) action that is “so severe, pervasive, and objectively offensive, and that so undermines and detracts from the victims’ educational experience, that the victim-students are effectively denied equal access to an institution’s resources and opportunities.” Davis v. Monroe County Board of Education, 526 U.S. 629, 652 (1999).

There is simply no way that this video meets that definition. What is said in the video is not particularly severe, as she couches her language in a number of ways and even apologizes at the beginning for not being “politically correct.” It wasn’t pervasive, either; the video appears to have been originally intended for the amusement of Wallace’s friends and only became widespread after the controversy began and it was reposted by others. It’s also easy to avoid seeing the videosimply by not searching for it on YouTube or clicking on links to it. Whether or not it is “objectively offensive” is a matter for debate, but at that point it doesn’t matter; in order to be harassment, the video must meet all of these criteria. It does not. Anyone minimally qualified in the law should see that very quickly; if UCLA does not, chances are it is because the university is more interested in finding a way to punish the student for her speech than in fairly conducting an investigation.

UCLA Chancellor Gene Block has also weighed in with a YouTube video of his own accompanied by a statement posted on the website of the UCLA press office. Block strongly condemns the video, which is his right to do. But his statement that “I recoil when someone invokes the right of free expression to demean other individuals or groups” is a bit mystifying, as Wallace did not “invoke” her rights in the video. Perhaps he just misused the word “invoke,” or perhaps he is responding to someone other than Wallace. Either way, it’s disappointing that Block has chosen to blame free speech here. Block continues by calling the video thoughtless, hurtful, demeaning, hurtful (again), shameful, intolerant, indefensible, hateful, and ignorant, all in the course of a short three-paragraph e-mail. It may or may not be all of those things, and again, Block certainly has the right to express his own opinions of the video, and to answer what he perceives to be as objectionable speech with speech of his own. But I know that if I were Wallace and were potentially facing a disciplinary hearing for the video, I would not feel very optimistic about getting a fair hearing about it.

Some students have also reacted in ways that aren’t particularly encouraging. A Facebook note purportedly from the Asian Pacific Coalition at UCLA asserted that “it is clear that this student’s comments can be considered a [sic] hate speech, an act of discrimination, harassment, and profiling,” and called for “disciplinary measures befitting of Wallace’s violation against the UCLA Student Code of Conduct and UCLA’s Principle of Community.” This significantly overstates the case. As discussed above, the video does not meet the legal definition of harassment by which UCLA, as a public university, is bound. It’s also worth noting that while people are free to label whatever expression they dislike as “hate speech,” the “hatefulness” of speech does not provide a legal justification for removing its Constitutional protection. Further, labeling a video like this as an “act of discrimination” dangerously confuses expression with action and, perhaps worse, is demeaning to those who suffer from real acts of discrimination. And even if UCLA did determine that the video violated some UCLA code or standard, the fact is that the expression in the video is constitutionally protected and UCLA is not free to punish Wallace for it.

Then, of course, there are the death threats against Wallace that have kept her from taking her exams at their scheduled locations and times. She also has apparently shut down her phone number and Facebook page, as her contact information was being posted around the Internet by those angry about the video. Obviously, death threats, if credible, are not protected speech and should be investigated. (Wallace is reportedly consulting with the police about them.) While UCLA Vice Chancellor Naples’ statement that “If she’s received a death threat, I find that as deplorable as her original YouTube video,” is welcome insofar as UCLA is willing to condemn death threats, it seriously raises the question of how Naples could believe that Wallace’s video, as offensive as it might be, could be anywhere near as deplorable as credibly threatening to kill someone.

One of the common complaints about FIRE is that we don’t offer specific remedies for those who have been offended by others’ speech. This is only true if you believe that official institutional or governmental punishment is the only remedy available to those who are offended. What has happened in this case proves that social pressure is an extremely strong force as well. Wallace has apologized for the video, saying,

Clearly the original video posted by me was inappropriate. I cannot explain what possessed me to approach the subject as I did, and if I could undo it, I would. I’d like to offer my apology to the entire UCLA campus. For those who cannot find it within them to accept my apology, I understand.

Wallace has been criticized by thousands on the Internet. The chancellor of her university has condemned her in the strongest terms. At this point, she is undoubtedly something of a social pariah, and she seems to have gone “off the grid” at UCLA. You have to imagine that this will affect her career prospects. And all of this has happened without any official punishmentso far, anyway.

Is official punishment really going to do much more at this point? Does anyone really believe she will express these opinions again, if she even continues to hold them? The fact that in a free society it is not the government’s place to punish people for their protected expression does not mean that people are not held accountable for it, especially in the Internet age. We would be well advised to remember that fact before we call for official punishment for those who offend us.
