The Weekly Roundup: Sophie's Choice for liberals

  • The headlines we were tempted to run, and the commentary we couldn’t.

Monday 20 February

Islamic Studies prof says rape, slavery OK under Islamic law

"We were almost right. Turns out pigs will fly the day college administrators stand up to liberal excesses."   

And then he’s shocked when he got heat for it?

Students protest prof’s op-ed about Islam’s threat to LGBT rights

Is that like Sophie’s Choice for bleeding hearts?

African American CR assailed by leftist protesters at Sac State

Did someone try to “whitesplain” to him the history of his own race?

Tuesday 21 February

They’re turning indecisiveness into an art form.

CA budget proposal guts middle class aid, keeps scholarships for illegals

Why the surprise? Gov. Brown is merely appealing to his constituents.

How many hair products are available for African-Americans? Well, that kinda depends on where you shop...

What we still can’t understand is the option to identify as “Both Gender Conforming and Gender Non-Conforming.”

Are there people out there who sometimes have a gender and sometimes don’t?

OCC lifts suspension of student who recorded prof’s anti-Trump rant

He shouldn’t have been suspended in the first place, of course; OCC presumably realized that punishing a whistleblower probably wasn’t the greatest PR move.

Friday 24 February

If only these kids understood banking, they would realize that preventing people from withdrawing their deposits actually helps Wells Fargo.
