Haverford College’s student newspaper is currently only accepting submissions from “students of color” in collaboration with a college-wide program that “prioritizes” the voices of minority students.

In a post on Facebook, the Haverford Clerk’s editorial staff wrote the paper will be accepting submissions from students who “weren’t able to attend” and “didn’t want to share in a room full of strangers” at the annual “WeSpeak” program.

The editorial staff added, “Those that would like to remain anonymity [sic] may request so upon submission. Only students of color may submit.”

The editor-in-chief for the Clerk, Maurice Rippel, clarified to MRCTV the call for submission exclusively for “students of color” was in connection with the college’s “WeSpeak” event. Originally, the Facebook post did not reference any connection between the event and a larger school program. The post has been updated since MRCTV’s inquiry.

In 2016, the Clerk described “WeSpeak” as a “Quaker style open forum for students of color at Haverford to express their thoughts and experiences in a context that prioritizes their voices.”

A blog post by the Office of Multicultural Affairs from 2016 states “WeSpeak” is “an annual event hosted at Haverford College where students of color are allowed to speak openly and uninterrupted in front of an audience of their peers about issues they have faced related to race on campus.”

Rippel told MRCTV, “The inquiry for submissions was for students that attended WeSpeak but as the post suggests, did not get to share. We garner posts for the online forum we provide students after the annual discussion.”

Previous responses to the Clerk’s call for submission include students talking about “light skin privilege,” not feeling “black enough,” microaggressions, and how “f**king painful” it is to read “Trump 2016” on campus.

According to the College Board, Haverford College is 59 percent white, 10 percent Asian, 9 percent non-resident alien, 8 percent Hispanic or Latino, 7 percent black or African American, 4 percent two or more races, and 2 percent “ethnicity unknown.”

The enemies of freedom never sleep. They seek to dominate and enslave those whom they can conquer and to eliminate those who resist. Unfortunately, this pattern has been an integral part of recorded history from ancient to modern.

Warfare will never stop. Idealists have dreams of a perfect world in which all of humanity will be peaceful, prosperous and loving. They are susceptible to the siren song of collectivism know as Marxism, Communism, and Progressivism— now also known as Globalism.

The drivers of these totalitarian forces have their own motivations, and there has been much discussion about the goal of the Elites and Globalists.

They have many tools with which to work. Weakening a culture in general via attacking its social institutions is the work of the enemy within. Alliance with a foreign entity is another.

Which brings us to Islamism. Jihad has many forms and stages. At the end of this post is a series links, (provided for reader convenience) via The Clarion Project discussing Jihad.

There is also a link, via Dr. Bill Warner, for those who would like to become activists but may not know where to go.

Initial excerpts from various posts below discuss Jihad in Europe and the U.S.

Well, Erdogan is completely out of the closet:
Muslims RIOT after Amsterdam thwarts Turkish ministers’ plans to bring violent campaigns to Holland, Turkey threatens HARSH retaliation
Geert Wilders was right — about everything.

Muslims are rioting in Holland because the Dutch government barred Turkish political parties from campaigning in Holland. The action was taken in an effort to avoid violent campaign “demos” and import divisions into the Turkish Muslim community in Holland. Prime Minister Rutte’s preventative actions were for naught. Muslims rioted anyway. Turkish President Erdogan is looking to the large number of Turkish migrants living in Europe, especially in Germany and the Netherlands, to help clinch victory next month in a referendum that would give the would-be caliph sweeping new powers.


Turkey has told the Netherlands it will retaliate in the “harshest ways” after

Turkish ministers were barred from speaking in Rotterdam in a row over Ankara’s political campaigning among Turkish emigres.
Will Erdogan unleash another migrant invasion? continue

Will such threats be leveled against America if we refuse to take in our UN dictated “quota” of refugees?
Turkey Again Threatens to Flood Europe with Refugees Unless Turks Get Visa-Free Travel in Europe

Blackmail from a country that is no friend or ally of the U.S., Europe or the West in general. This amounts to an ultimatum: let in huge numbers of “refugees” who will enable jihad attacks and foster the Islamization of Europe, or allow Turks visa-free travel, which would enable jihad attacks and foster the Islamization of Europe. Erdogan’s agenda should be clear to everyone who is not an EU functionary. continue

 In the name of Islam:
Another Axe on Islam’s Crazy Train
In a Dusseldorf train station, Fatmir, a Muslim refugee from Kosovo, went on the attack with an axe. His victims included several adults and a 13-year-old girl.

The authorities are blaming his attack on that familiar standby; drug and psychological problems…


But there appears to be a species of psychological problems unique to Muslims which causes them to head to the nearest train station with an axe or a knife.


A Muslim terrorist went off to the Carcassonne train station in France. He had a machete and a knife. His plan was to kill American and English tourists before going after soldiers and police officers. Even though he was on an Islamist watch list, the authorities blamed psychological problems…


There have been quite a few Muslims in Germany boarding the crazy train and trying to ride it all the way to the 72 virgins, dazzling white camels and musk mountains of Islamic paradise. continue

Jihadis are here and have been for a long time. Just one example below:
Iranian sleeper cells operating in U.S.
American intelligence agencies have growing evidence that the Iranian-backed Hezbollah terrorist group maintains a network of sleeper cells in the United States, according to a new report.

Though Hezbollah has not conducted a major attack on U.S. soil, the group could decide to strike key American sites should U.S.-Iran relations deteriorate substantially, according to the Investigative Project on Terrorism.


“Preparations to combat Islamist terrorism broadly should strongly consider the nuanced and growing Hezbollah threat to U.S. national security,” the report concludes. more

The courage of one woman:
Until We Are Free: The Shirin Ebadi Story
Until We Are Free: My Personal Fight for Human Rights in Iran is a biographical account of Shirin Ebadi, a 2003 recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize. A native Iranian Muslim and proud of it, Mrs. Shirin Ebadi documented the cruelty of the Islamic Republic of Iran. In her book, Ebadi provides moving descriptions and clear evidence of the repressive nature of the Iranian regime. What emerges is a clear picture of a Stalinist-like regime absent the Soviet Gulags. The regime’s Intelligence Ministry shuts down all criticism of the regime, by arrests, torture and murder. There is no free press in the Islamic Republic of Iran, no free speech, and every facet of free life is controlled and repressed by the Ayatollahs, through their praetorian guards — the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC), and the Basij Resistance Force, a voluntary paramilitary organization operating under the IRGC. It is an auxiliary force with multiple duties, including internal security, law enforcement, special religious and political events, and morals policing. To read more about her heroism go here

 President Obama’s farewell comments made in Chicago on January 10th regarding race relations barely struck on any reality chord. Fully immersed in two of his favorite pastimes — denial and self-aggrandizement during that speech he said, “I’ve lived long enough to know that race relations are better than they were 10, or 20 or 30 years ago…”

While that statement may arguably be true for relations now versus 5060 years ago (the riotous 1960’s), it is a definite stretch regarding race relations during the last couple of decades, and an absolute fantasy about race relations during the Obama presidency. Upon Obama taking office in 2009 an NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll had 77% of Americans responding that race relations were fairly good or very good. That was a culmination in improved relations spanning many years. However, nearing the end of his presidency, the response to that same poll question had declined to just 34%; the lowest level in more than two decades. 

 

At this time of year, when we recognize Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s birth, we shudder to think what Dr. King might think about race relations during the past eight years. Let us remember his words: “I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism … that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality.” That is a timeless, inspirational message to be sure. 

 

In contrast to Dr. King’s message, President Obama said in an interview with Marc Maron: “What is also true is that the legacy of slavery, Jim Crow, discrimination in almost every institution of our lives you know, that casts a long shadow. And that’s still part of our DNA that’s passed on.” [Maron] “Racism? [Obama] “Racism.”

 

Obama’s characterization of racism as part of the American DNA is purely, tragically nihilistic. It conveys that no matter what we deliberately do to rise above racial division we remain – deep to the core – racist. It further expresses that “racist DNA” inescapably passes on to our children resulting in their inherent racism.

Dr. King’s message was a direct rejection of Obama’s notion.

Destructively, President Obama’s legacy is one of failed race relations, despite his tiresome spin on the subject. His way of feebly dealing with the truth is to toss an indictment at the American people, saying that our expectations were too high when he took office. Race relations had been steadily improving for decades prior to Obama being elected president. And on that rising tide of improvement was there not genuine hope by many in finally rising above race when the American people lifted him to the highest political office in the land? The utter collapse of race relations after he took office that’s on him.

 
 

Is racism really embedded in our American DNA as Obama says? Quite the contrary. Objectively, American DNA is actually comprised of the very ingredients compelling the rejection of racism: individual liberty, capitalism, and acceptance.

This country was founded in order to stop and further prevent oppression, intolerance, and injustice.

American republicanism, under the faithfully applied principle that every citizen is equal in creation and under the law, is a socio-political structure systemically opposing injustice and intolerance. Excepting government misuse and meddling, the American precepts are liberating in their impartiality regarding any superficial human condition, including race. True capitalism, devoid of political cronyism and built upon the foundation of limited government, is emancipating in its liberty and equality, providing for any person to rise to any stature based on self-reliance and individual determination.

Barack Obama, as president of the United States for eight years, possessed a singular opportunity to uphold and promote American precepts and unify our diverse population into a common cohesion: simply, as American citizens. Instead, he chose a path of transformation, derision, and alienation. The result as he vacates the presidency is a nation regressed in race relations. 

 

As Obama leaves office, this is a time to renew our hope for a fresh president to lead a correction in our nation’s course by making the most of colorblind American precepts. Those precepts, truly what comprises our DNA, and contrary to Obama’s notion, have nothing to do with racism. Instead, they enhance our American being by providing the foundation for liberty and justice for every citizen, regardless of race. We can and will overcome Obama’s idea of perpetual racism with a new leader dedicated to reclaiming American foundational precepts. The consequence will be opportunities for growth and advancement for each citizen willing to work within the American core framework to attain success in the American dream.
