The Buckley Program Stands Up for Free Speech | FrontPage Magazine
The Buckley Program is a rare instance of an academic organization staying true to the ideals of free speech, academic freedom, and the “free play of the mind on all subjects,” as Matthew Arnold defined liberal education. Most of our best universities have sacrificed these ideals on the altar of political correctness and identity politics. Anything that displeases or discomforts campus special interest groups––mainly those predicated on being the alleged victims of American oppression–– must be proscribed as “slurs” or “hateful,” even if what’s said is factually true. No matter that these groups are ideologically driven and use their power to silence critics and limit speech to their own self-serving and duplicitous views, the modus operandi of every illiberal totalitarian regime in history. The spineless university caves in to their demands, incoherently camouflaging their craven betrayal of the First Amendment and academic freedom as “tolerance” and “respect for diversity.”
In the case of Islam, however, this betrayal is particularly dangerous. For we are confronting across the world a jihadist movement that grounds its violence in traditional Islamic theology, jurisprudence, and history. Ignoring those motives and their sanction by Islamic doctrine compromises our strategy and tactics in defeating the jihadists, for we cripple ourselves in the war of ideas. Worse yet, Islamic triumphalism and chauvinism–– embodied in the Koranic verse that calls Muslims “the best of nations raised up for the benefit of men” because they “enjoin the right and forbid the wrong and believe in Allah”–– is confirmed and strengthened by the way our elite institutions like universities and the federal government quickly capitulate to special interest groups who demand that we endorse only their sanitized and often false picture of Islam. Such surrender confirms the jihadist estimation of the West as the “weak horse,” as bin Laden said, a civilization with “foundations of straw” whose wealth and military power are undermined by a collective failure of nerve and loss of morale.

His government is a totally corrupt socialist basket case that uses the US as its safety valve against another internal peasant and race revolution that has been simmering since the 1920s.
He condemns the Texas National Guard in a country that uses its Federal Army against its people and the US. It has uncompromising immigration laws where no illegals are allowed and are deported at once or sent immediately through Mexico to the US boarder.
Close our southern boarder, period! m/r

|May I take your Taco Order?|
Bet you expected something else.
How perfectly Clintonian: “While a crowd of several thousand Democrats waited on a sloping, grassy field below, Mrs Clinton, her husband and Senator Harkin staged a mini-grilling of steaks for the press at a single barbecue grill in a fenced-off enclosure, framed by a handsome tree and a picnic table filled with some patient Iowans. Mrs Clinton gamely posed, pretending to grill a steak that had been pre-cooked for her.”

arrested any time I let my child play outside or walk to school, I won't
do it. And that's the opposite of what Free Range Kids is about," says
Lenore Skenazy, proprietor of the blog FreeRangeKids.com. She adds,
"Free Range Kids is about getting so many kids outside, that it doesn't
seem strange to see a child playing in the park."
conversation with Reason TV's Nick Gillespie, Skenazy debunks the myth
that children left unattended in a car for a few minutes are in mortal
danger, decries "busybodies" who feel a civic duty to call the police
when they see an unaccompanied child, and offers helpful tools for
terrified parents on how to let their kids enjoy more freedom to explore
