Idaho students sick of ’emasculation’ and ‘degeneracy’ recruited to join white supremacist group

Published

on

Students found fliers advertising a white supremacist group this week on the Boise State campus.

The fliers appeared Wednesday stuck to several campus buildings, inviting anyone who has a “problem with” immigration, political correctness, globalization, Marxism/leftism, “male emasculation” or “degeneracy” to contact the group by email, reported the Boise Weekly.

The references to degeneracy and emasculation refer specifically to National Socialist — or Nazi — ideas about race, masculinity, eugenics and art.

“Degeneracy is the idea that some people are less human than others,” a faculty member told KBOI-TV in a statement. “Unless we’re considering that subject in a carefully crafted context — for example, a discussion of the sterilization of African-American women, or Nazis’ perspectives on disability — that’s a topic I don’t want to see promulgated on a university campus.”

The flier also showed the comic book hero, Captain America, who was depicted punching Nazi leader Adolf Hitler in the face when he first appeared in 1941.

But he has been adopted as symbol by American white nationalists due to his origin story, which the newspaper pointed out depicts a physically weak man acquiring superpowers with a secret serum developed by the military.

“Maybe they are promising some kind of magic juice,” said Leslie Madsen-Brooks, a history professor at the university.

University officials said “Boise State Nationalists” were not an officially recognized group and the fliers were posted in violation of the school’s policy.

“While the university does restrict how fliers can be posted on campus, the content of the speech in question is protected by the First Amendment,” university officials said in a statement. “As is the speech of those who vehemently agree with it.”

Congress should ask Mueller these specific questions about Trump’s involvement with Russia: Conservative columnist

Published

on

Conservative Never-Trump columnist Jennifer Rubin outlined the essential questions that Democrats should ask special counsel Robert Mueller in an op-ed for the Washington Post.

"Rather than engage in the normal scattershot questioning punctuated by speechifying, the House Judiciary Committee should assign its able attorney Norman Eisen to conduct the questioning," proposed Rubin. "Members could then follow up with additional questions.'

One question she proposed asking: "Mr. Mueller, the attorney general said you did not find 'collusion.' However, you did not look for collusion. Please explain what you looked for and how that differs from [Attorney General William] Barr’s assertion that you essentially cleared President Trump of collusion?"

‘Is Ireland one of those countries you want to invade’: Trump once ‘joked’ John Bolton wants ‘to nuke them all’

Published

Even President Donald Trump recognizes that John Bolton is a war-loving hawk, Axios reported Sunday.

In a conversation that included the Irish prime minister, Trump asked Bolton, "John, is Ireland one of those countries you want to invade?"

The scene was during the annual St. Patrick's Day visit. Typically it's a photo-op, a handshake, and men in green ties with a shamrock sprig in their jacket pocket. Trump managed to turn it into an awkward scene for everyone.

Mueller probably won’t be giving new information — here’s why that can still sink Trump

Published

on

Former special counsel Robert Mueller will appear in Congress this week to testify for two hours about the report he authored on the case of Russian collusion.

The hearing is set for Wednesday, though Mueller has said that he won't have any additional information other than what is in his report. A Washington Post report used examples of past Mueller testimony to outline what can be anticipated. The reality, however, is that regardless of whether Mueller sticks to the report or not, he'll deliver enough to put the president in a difficult situation.
