Published

According to reports from the police, 22,000 people were in attendance at Monday’s Second Amendment rally in Richmond, Virginia.

Estimates coming from the Joint Information Center, which is made up of spokespeople from Capitol, Richmond and Virginia State Police, claim that 6,000 people were allowed into the Capitol Square while another 16,000 were allowed to stand outside the gates.

Despite the media scare of so-called “white nationalists” coming to disrupt the event, the gun rights rally ended peacefully.

Nevertheless, Virginia Governor Ralph Northam declared a temporary state of emergency a few days before the rally, banning all weapons, even guns, at the event on Capitol Square.

The rationale behind this move was that Democrat leadership feared this rally would be a repeat of the controversial Charlottesville rally of 2017.

Instead, this rally involved thousands of activists who were peacefully protesting the Democrat-controlled state legislature’s plans to introduce gun control legislation.

The rally is now over but the fight has only just begun.

These demonstrators’ fears are warranted given the radical nature of the modern-day Democrat Party.

Their legislative endgame is to regulate private gun ownership out of existence.

The incoming 2020 session of the Virginia General Assembly is bound to be one of the most heated in recent memory, and will likely serve as a preview to the many legislative dog fights Second Amendment patriots will be involved in the near feature.

MSU Provost Goes Politically Correct by Eliminating the Words “Foreign” and “Alien”

Published

In a recent announcement, Michigan State University Provost Teresa Woodruff declared that the university will stop using the terms “foreign” and “alien” to foster a more “inclusive” environment.

The Morning Watch reported that Woodruff said before the Associated Students of MSU (ASMSU) on October 22, that “we will eliminate from our collective lexicon the words ‘alien’ and ‘foreign.’ Instead, we’ve adopted non-pejorative terms that describe geography.”

The new language directed towards international students would now be “non-domestic” or “international,” the provost detailed. Woodruff added that the change will help “create a culture of not us vs. them, but of each other.”

Woodruff revealed that change was made by the MSU Office of the Provost and went through the Dean’s Council, and the federal government was made aware of these changes.

The ASMSU’s International Students Association representative Nikunj Agarwal declared that the language change is an “essential step” and that change in language will help in “making us feel really inclusive in the community.” MSU has been active over the past year in trying to become more politically correct and “inclusive.”

Back in October 2019, MSU made additional changes to appeal to resident aliens by launching a website for “undocumented students, refugees, and recipients of…DACA.” The website listed a number of goals which consisted of “reducing apprehension, addressing confusion, and giving better access to MSU resources.”

MSU’s President Samuel Stanley was especially shook after Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) agents gave a presentation before an MSU class. Stanley likened the the CBP agents’ visit to campus as acts of vandalism and part of the “concern and anger” at the university.

Public universities are making it clear that they don’t care about free speech and are willing to manipulate language for the sake of promoting political correctness. If conservatives aren’t majoring in high demand fields such as STEM, they should give universities the cold shoulder. There’s no need to subsidize institutions that hate you.
