David Ragland is a "Peace & Conflict Studies" professor at Juniata College in Pennsylvania. His online profiles also point out that he is an "Activist & Advocate" who frequently sympathizes with the #BlackLivesMatter movement, as well as with the Baltimore and Ferguson protestors.  

Upon further research into Professor Ragland, it is apparent that he, by no stretch of the definition, is a bully. Time and time again, Ragland hides behind his keyboard to offend prominent members of society, individuals of his own race, and to aggressively attempt to intimidate by name-calling and offending those whose beliefs and values differ from his own.

Here, Prof. Ragland calls Dr. Ben Carson a "handkerchief head," which is an extremely pejorative term to describe a black or African American person who does not identify with fellow black or African American people, but rather with white people, for personal gain.

 

Even more recently, Ragland lashed out with more derogatory terms at former Secretary of State and four-star United States Army general Colin Powell for simply stating that he doesn't mind the Black Lives Matter movement, but that black-on-black violence is a bigger issue. [intermarkets_ad]

U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) challenged presidential hopeful Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) to a 'fight' on his home turf of Texas over this past weekend at a fundraiser for the Texas Democratic Party:

“We will not let Ted Cruz shut down this government over Planned Parenthood! He wants a fight over Planned Parenthood? My answer is, ‘Bring it on, Ted!’”  Said Warren during a speech in Austin, drawing loud applause.

The challenge comes in the midst of Cruz vowing to launch a grassroots campaign to defund Planned Parenthood in all 50 states and prosecute all criminal violators of wronging. 

Senator Cruz co-sponsored a Senate bill to defund Planned Parenthood earlier in August which fell short by a 53-46 vote. 

In an opt-ed in USA Today, Cruz wrote: 

I intend to lead the fight in the United States Senate to defund Planned Parenthood, even while investigations continue. The time for show votes is over.  Funding the federal government does not require funding Planned Parenthood.  But basic decency and our commitment to the right to life does require that we stop taxpayer funding of abortions and any trade in baby parts.

Senator Warren, who has criticized members of Congress for wanting to defund Planned Parenthood, has been very vocal in her standing support of the abortion provider. In an impassioned speech on the Senate floor, Warren conflated healthcare and the killing of unborn children, telling Republicans:

Why did Governor Terry McAuliffe (D-VA) bring an armed body guard to Michael Bloomberg's anti-gun rally in Washington, D.C.?

Watch Governor McAuliffe try to justify his special privilege of being armed while on the Capitol grounds of Washington, D.C. at the Sept. 10 anti-gun event.

 

His claim that Virginia doesn't have background checks is misleading and false. According to vsp.state.va.us, firearm purchases in Virginia require a background check, and the gun show "loophole" that he mentions has been debunked. Irony lost. [intermarkets_ad]

The anti-gun advocacy group "Everytown for America" that pushes to disarm American citizens is nothing more than liberal hypocrisy in plain sight. 

Why is it that Washington bureaucrats feel that they are allowed to be armed and defend themselves in public, but the American people aren't? 

Remember when outspoken anti-gun critic and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg refused to, in the spirit of gun control, say he would disarm his security team?

Watch investigative reporter Jason Matera try to get an answer:

Are women really "Ready for Hillary?"

On Thursday September 10th, the Clinton campaign made a stop in the battleground state of Ohio to speak on women's issues in downtown Columbus.  

Hillary brought with her the same old "We can build an America" rhetoric that addresses no specific plans of how change will be implemented. 

 

 

Here is a screenshot of the empty hall tweeted out by WaPo's Karen Tumulty who was in attendance at the event today: 

 

 

 

 

Fox News' Ed Henry was also in attendance, tweeting out two more photos of the hall: [intermarkets_ad]

#CleanHandsMatter

The Internet is currently up in arms over a video that claims that this soap dispenser is racist. 

Look! It even only dispenses WHITE soap:

The video was clearly intended to be a joke given the fact that everything in today's society is seemed racist. If you bother to look closely enough, you can see the black individuals hand is a mile away from the motion sensor located at the back of the faucet. 

What's scary, however, is that people seem to actually believe that the engineers behind this faucet set out for it to discriminate against black people.

Professor C. Heike Schotten is a professor of Political Science at UMass Boston. Her areas of expertise include: History of Western Political Thought, Nietzsche, U.S. Feminist Theory, Feminist Political Theory, and Queer Theory.

Schotten is an anti-America, anti-Israel member of the U.S. Campaign for the Academic and Cultural Boycott of Israel serving as a member of their Organizing Collective.

On July 11th, 2015, Professor Schotten authored a piece entitled "Why The Charleston Massacre isn't terrorism, and Palestinian resistance will always be":

In the article, Professor Schotten makes several anti-American and controversial statements such as:

Why would the US government openly ignore terrorist threats to its citizenry, foolishly leaving the public vulnerable and unprotected?

Simple: right-wingers and white supremacists aren’t Muslims.”

Schotten also has hatred toward the police in this country, and questions why no one has suggested that cops are terrorists or that black communities are victims of domestic terrorism despite data showing more whites die at the hands of law enforcement than blacks.

Stephanie Ritter graduated from Florida State University in 2011 with a degree in theatre. She is hoping that her degree diploma is worth more than the actual college degree itself, which is why she is selling it for $50,000 on eBay.

Stephanie even suggests "Ways you could use this diploma":
  • "Write on your resume that you have it!"
  • "Pose proudly next to it for a Facebook picture!"
  • "Hang it on the wall in your office!"
  • "As a very large coaster!"
  • "As set dressing for a movie about someone that went to a State School!"
  • "If your name is also Stephanie Ritter and you have $50,000 laying around for a really solid joke!"

In a statement to BuzzFeed:

I thought this piece of paper has so much worth to so many people, but for a theater major, it couldn't mean less. I'm doing the exact same thing and probably getting paid the exact same amount as people that dropped out halfway through freshman year, exxept I'm still $40,000 in debt and they're, well, not.

Despite her frustration with the reality of the job market and a theater degree, Stephanie says she would choose to go to college again. But this time, with a criteria. Stephanie would attend a college in a city so that she can earn more money to support herself, and more importantly, a college that is queer-friendly.

During Yesterday evening's press conference in Dubuque, Iowa, presidential candidate Donald Trump had Univision anchor Jorge Ramos tossed out for abruptly interrupting a Q&A panel. 

Watch here how the confrontation went down: 

You can see from the start, it was clear that other journalists and media personnel were sitting with their hands raised like mature and civilized human being beings. 

This however, didn't stop Univison anchor Ramos from disrupting the panel by repeatedly shouting "You cannot deport 11 million people!" 

Trump is heard telling Ramos to "sit down" followed by "go back to Univison" which is the American Spanish language television network Trump is reportedly suing for $500M over breach of contract and defamation. 

After security escorted Ramos out of the press room, Trump in response to another question said he would "love to" have Ramos come back, but for him to understand he was rude and out of order.

Ramos was reportedly told he was welcome to return back five minutes later and told he would be called on to have his question answered. 

Nothing "full out racist" ever occured to the slightest degree.

Earlier this morning, former Red Sox star and World Series Champion Curt Schilling took to Twitter to share a picture comparing today's Muslims to 1940's Nazis. 

 

It's currently unclear as to why Schilling posted the tweet, but he has since apologized to a concerned fan, and deleted the tweet. ESPN has called the tweet "completely unacceptable" and suspended Schilling from his Little League coverage:

“We made that point very strongly to Curt and have removed him from his current Little League assignment pending further consideration.”

Did Schilling not foresee any backlash from any of his 128,000 followers?
