"Freedom House puts out an index rating countries as free or partly free or not free based on whether their citizens have certain rights most Americans consider fundamental.

If Freedom House expanded the list to colleges, where would Harvard rank?
Surely not 'free.'

Freedom of association is gone. Harvard College now has a policy in place to start punishing students who want to be members of a single-sex organization – even if the organization isn’t affiliated with the college.

Now freedom of religion is on the chopping block.

A Christian fellowship was put on probation last week for forcing a junior who served as an assistant Bible course officer to resign because she embraced homosexuality, according to The Harvard Crimson.

The student leaders of the group, Harvard College Faith and Action, say they asked her to step down because of a 'theological disagreement.'

But college officials say the group violated the college’s student handbook, which says student organizations can’t “discriminate on the basis of … sexual orientation.”

The Christian fellowship didn’t do that. Nor is it a disputed fact, as the Crimson story makes clear:

'The woman, as well as four other members of HCFA, said they believe she was not asked to step down from her position because she is bisexual. Instead, HCFA leadership pressured her to resign because she chose to actively pursue a same-sex relationship, according to the woman and the four other individuals.'

In other words, Christians who belong to a Christian group told someone no longer living in a Christian way she could no longer have a leadership role in their group. And for that, the group got suspended.

The technical term for what the Christian group did is Christianity. The technical term for what the college did is persecution.

Oh, there’s a little more to the story. But not much. The college officials also cited the student group’s ties to Christian Union, a national evangelical Protestant organization that provides money and support staff for student groups at Harvard and elsewhere.

A Christian Union staff member got involved in trying to resolve the bisexual student’s association with the student group, according to the Crimson story, which apparently troubles college officials.

Presumably we can expect an audit of the financial and administrative ties between left-wing groups on campus and national organizations? Or would it be better to just let left-wing groups and right-wing groups and no-wing groups figure out their own structure and whom they associate with and how?

Not cited in the college’s suspension, but surely the proximate cause of it, is Harvard Christian Faith and Action’s hosting last week of a Christian speaker who describes herself as an ex-lesbian and advocates that people who feel same-sex attraction not act on it out of love for God.

In other words:  She made a pitch for Christian sexual morality. Five days later, the group that sponsored her got put on probation. So much for freedom of speech.

Now Harvard, as a private institution, has a right to be as restrictive as any other private organization about who gets its rights and privileges. But what is all this business in the student handbook about 'free expression,' 'free inquiry,' 'intellectual honesty'?

How about the part that says 'Any form of discrimination based on … religion … is contrary to the principles and policies of Harvard University'?

Freedom of religion is not the freedom to believe anything you want. No one can regulate what someone believes. It’s the right to practice a religion. That’s what the leaders of Harvard Christian Faith and Action are doing. By insisting the group’s representatives try to live by Christian morals, Harvard Christian Faith and Action leaders are living their faith. To punish them is to discriminate against them – and all the group’s members – based on their religion.

It’s one thing to reject Christianity, as many students and the vast majority of faculty members and administrators do these days. That’s their right. It’s another thing to reject Christians.

Or can’t college officials tell the difference?

At Harvard, if Christianity is a sin, college officials are acting as though they hate both the sin and the sinner. They don’t appear to think much of freedom, either.

The above report from the New Boston Post reminds all patriots of the stunning attacks that continue today by Progressive Socialist / Marxists against our Founders and their vision of a free people to determine their own destiny against the global "collective" fought for by multicultural liberals today.

You can hear and watch them EVERY DAY in the far-left media's echo chamber, where if you have seen one of their attacks on conservatives you've seen them all. Sometimes even the exact same words are used by the cable media hosts, as if being read from a script. Of course I say "as if," knowing it is not as if but certain. The only question is who is providing these words almost daily to the cable outlets?

It is why "their" diversity is not about freedom. It's instead used as a hammer against freedom, be it in this country or others such as England, Germany and Sweden. Their diversity is called multiculturalism, where in Sweden the media attacks anyone who questions it and then attempts to remove them from the society . . . even the country.

To that end In America 1776 was not an event in history. It is instead an event that is still fought today and every day with equal passion and commitment. - Webmaster



So Is It Any Surprise . . .

. . . that these same graduates can and do affect the outcome of the treatment of the content on the Social Media they have been "employed to monitor?"

Then they can easily subject it to whatever censorship their little snowflake hearts desire. - Webmaster


"Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said Tuesday that the company has already begun to implement a system that ranks news organizations based on trustworthiness, and promotes or suppresses its content based on that metric. Zuckerberg said the company has gathered data on how consumers perceive news brands by asking them to identify whether they have heard of various publications and if they trust them.

'We put [that data] into the system, and it is acting as a boost or a suppression, and we’re going to dial up the intensity of that over time,' he said. 'We feel like we have a responsibility to further [break] down polarization and find common ground.'

Zuckerberg met with a group of news media executives at the Rosewood Sand Hill hotel in Menlo Park after delivering his keynote speech at Facebook’s annual F8 developer conference Tuesday.

The meeting included representatives from BuzzFeed News, the Information, Quartz, the New York Times, CNN, the Wall Street Journal, NBC, Recode, Univision, Barron’s, the Daily Beast, the Economist, HuffPost, Insider, the Atlantic, the New York Post, and others.

The event, called 'OTR' (shorthand for ' off the record'), is an annual gathering meant for new media news executives to talk shop. It is in its second year. Zuckerberg’s remarks were initially meant to be, like the name of the conference, off the record, but he agreed to answer questions on the record." - , May 2, 2018, NTEB

Dana Loesch: Parkland ‘Protected’ Nikolas Cruz With Lax Discipline Regimen

"Those blaming the deadly Parkland shooting on the National Rifle Association need to take a harder look at the Broward County school superintendent and sheriff, according to NRA spokesperson Dana Loesch.

She told the Western Conservative Summit that school authorities “protected” the confessed mass shooter by failing to get tough on him in the name of reducing student arrests prior to the Feb. 14 shooting.

'He was sending death threats to other classmates through social media platforms which under Florida law, under the state statute, that’s a felony,' said Ms. Loesch. 'But because of that Promise program which he was enrolled in, none of it was reported. It was all under the radar. He didn’t have a criminal record because [superintendent] Robert Runcie and [Sheriff] Scott Israel prevented him from having one.'

She added, 'They might as well have walked into the gun store and bought the gun for him.'

Ms. Loesch capped the annual conservative gathering Saturday night by pushing back against the movement to hold the NRA responsible for the Parkland shooting, pointing to the district’s lax discipline policies and security measures.

Her comments came shortly after anti-NRA demonstrators held a protest outside the Colorado Convention Center."

'PROMISE Program' Hailed By Obama Administration Led To Florida Schools Ignoring Violent Students

"Laura Ingraham examines an initiative called the 'PROMISE Program' that reduced the number of school-related arrests in Broward County Public Schools. In 2011-2012, BCPS had the highest number of student arrests in Florida but after the superintendent implemented the program arrests plummeted.

PROMISE gave school administrators the power to decide whether infractions were deemed worthy of involving the policy rather than following guidelines that were previously in place. PROMISE stands for 'Preventing Recidivism through Opportunities, Mentoring, Intervention, Support, and Education.'

The program was praised by the Obama administration and the school district was awarded $54 million in grants from the $4 billion 'Race to the Top' initiative." - RealClearPolitics
