Penn State has deleted a controversial tweet that declared the viewpoints of conservative students matter on campus. The school’s liberal arts department tweeted an image last month with the caption, “Dear Students: You Belong Here,” which included several statement recognizing Black, Latinx, and LGBTQ+ students, Campus Reform reported Wednesday. “Dear Black students, your lives matter,” the image stated. “Dear Muslim and Jewish students, your beliefs are valued here. Dear conservative students, your viewpoints are important.(Snip) The line about conservative students outraged people on social media, prompting the school to delete the tweet. Penn State Director of Strategic Communications William Hessert Jr.

Comments:

It's nice of Penn State to welcome pedophiles (that's the + in LGBTQ+), seeing how they had at least one high-profile child molester on staff. But why in this Republic of ours is it OK to praise all sorts of affinity groups, but also to quite openly and actively disparage and discriminate against WHITE people, and in particular WHITE Christian men?

Group-think always destroys groups and organizations. How sad for those people who demanded certain opinions, and viewpoints, are not welcome. The lack of diversity of opinion is rampant on college campuses.

Well, they should delete tweets if they are false. At least they're somewhat truthful in that they don't want those who disagree with their leftist theology.

Conservative viewpoints are the only ones that actually use logic, reason, and facts to support them. Logic, reason, and fact are three things that no lie-beral can possibly understand. They only understand "feelings". It's all their tiny pathetic little brains can comprehend. So, of course they would hate conservative viewpoints!!!!!

Police investigating racist messages left on a Texas A&M student’s car in June say all available evidence points to it being a hoax. School officials offered a $1,200 reward on June 25 for any evidence that identified the person who wrote “All lives matter, “You don’t belong here,” and “n—r” messages before leaving them on senior Isaih Martin’s windshield. A College Station cop who watched surveillance footage from a nearby pool camera say that what they witnessed implicated Mr. Martin himself as the culprit. “Martin immediately walks to the passenger side of his vehicle, but does not open any doors,”

Colin Powell criticized President Trump on Thursday for opposing efforts to rename monuments to Confederate leaders who fought against the U.S. in the Civil War. The retired four-star Army general and former statesman called Mr. Trump “intolerant” for rejecting calls to rename American military bases that currently honor Confederate leaders.(Snip) “They were not great Americans. They were great members perhaps, tactically, of the Confederate States of America, but they were no longer Americans at that point,” he added. Calls to remove monuments to the former Confederacy and its slave-holding leaders rekindled following the racially charged killing of George Floyd

Homicides in Memphis are up more than 30% percent compared to this time last year.

Officials in Memphis begged the public Wednesday for both information and further community involvement in measures like neighborhood watches and community programming.(Snip) Of the 18 children and teens killed this year, 14 were murdered and three were killed in accidental shootings.

Freeholders are a unique part of the state's political system.

Speaking on MSNBC, O’Rourke, a Texas Democrat, was asked to comment on Education Secretary Betsy DeVos and Texas Gov.

The former lawmaker quickly pivoted from talking about the virus to talking about gun violence. “These are the same people who want us to accept that more people, including children, will die of gun violence this year in America than in any other developed country, bar none,” O’Rourke said,

According to the poll conducted by the Washington based thinktank the Democracy Institute, President Trump is neck and neck with his rival Joe Biden on 47 percent. However, Mr Trump would win in the electoral college system by 309 to 229 delegates because he is on course to win the crucial swing states including Florida, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin where he outpolls Vice President Biden by 48 percent to 44 percent.The findings come as the US President went to the iconic Mount Rushmore to make a speech attacking “the angry mobs” who want to erase America’s history.
