Video: Why I Left The Left

Progressives see people as members of groups, not as individuals.  Group identity disparages individual rights, supports politicization of group identities, and fragments society.

Dave Rubin of The Rubin Report used to be a big progressive. He even had a show with The Young Turks! But now he’s not a progressive. He has left the left. Why? Dave Rubin shares his story.

List Of Over 200 People Arrested At The Inauguration Riots In DC

A list of more than 200 arrested anarchist/rioters at the Inauguration in DC.

A GotNews source has obtained the full list of 231 people arrested at the Washington, D.C. riots on President Donald J. Trump’s inauguration from the D.C. Metropolitan Police Department.

The list includes more than 200 people of all ages and parts of the country. The violent riots caused more than $100,000 of damage to the downtown D.C. area. Many were clearly Marxists, ANTIFA, anarchists, and other sorts of violent leftists.

You can download the list in Microsoft Excel format right at GotNews.

The first one is Duke Mabirou from Southfield, MI. Duke is NOT a registered voter in Michigan like his relatives. GraniteGrok

UK Parliament Is Now A Safe Space

The UK Parliament – supposed home of free speech.

Commons Speaker John Bercow, whose post is supposed to be politically neutral, vetoed President Trump addressing Parliament during his state visit to the UK.

Commons Speaker John Bercow has dramatically vetoed President Trump addressing Parliament during his state visit to the UK later this year.

The Speaker was cheered loudly and applauded by MPs after he denounced the President and said he would refuse to invite him to Westminster.

The applause came at the end of a lengthy statement from Mr Bercow in which he said the House of Commons believes in equality and an independent judiciary.

Mr Bercow’s bombshell announcement came in response to a plea from Labour MP Steve Doughty, who has tabled a Commons motion calling on the parliamentary authorities to withhold permission.

Responding to Mr Doughty, Mr Bercow said there was no automatic right for foreign leaders to address Parliament during a visit to the UK, it was an earned honour.

He told MPs: “There are many precedents for state visits to take place to our country which do not include an address to both Houses of Parliament.”  Sky

Barnard College Pledges To Hire Professors Based On Skin Color, Mandates Social-Justice Workshops

The left being racist and passing it off as tolerant and inclusive.

A women’s college is planning to hire new professors based on the color of their skin because of the “demonstrated benefits” of nonwhite faculty.

Whether such faculty benefits the college enough to be paid for a full teaching load remains to be seen, however.

After a year of deliberation, the Barnard College Task Force on Diversity and Inclusion released a set of draft recommendations last week with the aim of improving “representation, inclusion, and social justice” in the classroom and on campus.

Beyond hiring a new C-level official to oversee diversity efforts, the recommendations include mandatory social justice workshops for all community members and extra academic support specifically for racial minorities.

The effort is so expensive that Barnard, which is affiliated with Columbia University, will have to launch a new fundraising campaign to pull it off, as the recommendations acknowledge. TheCollegeFix
