Refugees vs Little Girl

On June 2, three Muslim refugees allegedly sexual assaulted a little girl in Twin Falls, Idaho. In a country that purports to take sexual assault highly seriously, it seems surprising that, even a month later, no major media sources have extensively reported on this incident. Even local media news outlets in Idaho took almost a week to report the allegations of the assault to the nearby community. Two of the refugees were arrested on June 17, but, on June 23, they were released from detention pending further court proceedings. The public allegations and facts regarding this case are highly egregious and...

Our Enemy: An Alternative View

To properly examine who America’s enemy is in the so-called war on terror, it is vital, as my fellow writer Treston Wheat stated, to accurately describe the threat that we as a nation face. However, to obfuscate such an examination by calling the threat both Islamic yet not indicative of Islam does not precipitate a solution, it simply further engenders delusion. Contrary to Treston’s thesis that Islamism, not Islam, is to blame for our international and domestic terror woes, Samuel Huntington, a highly esteemed Harvard University political scientist, once said, “Islam’s borders are bloody and so are its innards....

Yale vs Due Process

Jack Montague, the former captain of the highly successful 2015-2016 Yale Mens Basketball team, has officially filed a complaint against Yale University.

Brock Turner: An Alternative View

Nothing but vilification has taken place since Judge Aaron Persky of Santa Clara County declared his decision in the case involving Stanford Swimmer Brock Turner. Widespread outrage permeated the country, recall efforts have began to rid Judge Persky of his position, and mainstream media outlets, as well as TCC, have implied injustice and bias within this court case. The information regarding Turner’s assault in 2015 does not seem to be disputable: “Two students saw Turner on top of the victim, rushed to her aid and restrained the intoxicated Turner. Police were called and found the now 23-year-old victim “completely...

War on Free Speech, Part 2

On May 31, the European Union and IT companies, namely Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, and Microsoft, perpetuated Europe’s war on free speech with new code of conduct to counter hate speech online. Specifically, “racism and xenophobia” will be further cracked down upon by European authorities and their internet allies. The code of conduct is not legally binding upon the internet companies. However, the code establishes a public commitment on behalf of these internet companies to combat such unwanted speech, and it creates new agreements to enable these internet companies to both more quickly remove such speech and expression from their...
