"Most people prefer to believe their leaders are just and fair even in the face of evidence to the contrary, because once a citizen acknowledges that the government under which they live is lying and corrupt, the citizen has to choose what he or she will do about it. To take action in the face of a corrupt government entails risks of harm to life and loved ones. To choose to do nothing is to surrender one's self-image of standing for principles. Most people do not have the courage to face that choice. Hence, most propaganda is not designed to fool the critical thinker but only to give moral cowards an excuse not to think at all." -- Michael Rivero

It seems progressives stir up protests, now, every election year. Perhaps they hope to fearmonger voters into backing the candidate of their choice, through dangerous demonstrations and even rioting.

This year, the progressive left has chosen a losing battle to fight. Far-left Democrats are protesting U.S. ally Israel and its war against Hamas.

Michael Cassidy, a Christian veteran who destroyed a Satanic altar erected in the Iowa Capitol last year, pleaded guilty on Friday "to a reduced charge in return for prosecutors dropping a felony hate crime count," the AP reports.

"The plea agreement calls for Cassidy to receive a deferred judgment with two years probation, an $855 civil penalty, and to pay restitution in an amount to be determined. He would also be required to participate in a victim-offender dialogue with representatives of the Satanic Temple if requested."

More than a dozen students have been arrested at Oxford University after British police cracked down a pro-Palestine protest.

A group of students, members of Oxford Action for Palestine, launched a peaceful sit-in on Thursday morning in the Wellington Square office building to demand the administration to agree for negotiation.

However, the group said that instead of engaging in a dialogue with them, the university placed the building under lockdown and called the police.

The many Jewish students in the campus encampments, along with other Jews protesting the Gaza phase of the Palestinian Genocide, deserve the highest praise for many reasons.  One reason is that by their deeds they are countering what might otherwise turn into a wave of antisemitism.

America’s universities are on fire. A protest movement against the violence in Gaza and U.S. colleges’ complicity in them has swept the nation, with encampments on college campuses in 45 of America’s 50 states. The crackdown has been swift; thousands of students have been arrested, charged, fined, lost their degrees, or even deported.

In the ongoing battle by US University administrators to remove the correct definition of “Genocide” from the minds of their students including the one provided by Websters and Oxfords’, the campus re-education program at the University of California/ San Diego over the past two weeks is proving unsuccessful.

The tents may be gone. The “Constant of Conscience” of their students has not.
