Left-wing HACK journalist tweets college professors should DROWN conservative students

(National SentinelFringe: A Left-wing former contributor to Deadspin gave a harsh response to a conservative activist who tweeted out that conservative students on college campuses are treated unfairly by liberal professors who dominate most institutions.

“I get countless of messages from students who say professors are lowering their grades & penalizing them for being conservative,” Charlie Kirk of Turning Point USA tweeted Wednesday. “Leftists dominating higher education represent a grave threat to our country & culture.

“Conservative students shouldn’t be targeted for disagreeing,” he added.

That tweet earned him a now-deleted response from Jesse Farrar, formerly of Deadspin and Vice, who wrote professors should instead “hold the conservative students heads under water until they stop breathing.”

Kirk responded: “I’m sure he is joking, but imagine if conservatives made a joke like that against liberals?”

“I am not joking,” Farrar wrote back, later deleting the tweet.

Kirk told Fox News the response “stunned” him. “He’s calling for the public death of conservative students,” he added. “They disagree with our worldview so much that [liberals] literally want us dead.”

Deadspin was contacted about Farrar’s comment by the Independent Review-Journal, and Deputy Editor Barry Petchesky said that while he didn’t agree with Farrar’s “method,” he said, “I can’t argue that it wouldn’t make the world a better place,” Fox News reported.

“So, mass genocide of conservative students would make the world a better place,” Kirk noted.

J. D. Heyes, editor-in-chief of The National Sentinel, noted that liberal journalists in the U.S. today are actually doing Americans a favor by revealing their true identities.

“In the age of Trump, these bozos are doing a full-reveal and letting us see them for the anti-American shills they’ve always been,” he said. “What’s more, people like this are taking over the Democratic Party, with the party’s blessing.

“Maybe now it’s easier to see why conservatives and Republicans in Congress should stop trying to ‘work with’ these Marxist lunatics who are openly advocating our deaths,” he added. “Imagine how it will be if they ever really do take power.”

Sarah Huckabee Sanders DESTROYS Chuck Schumer, press, over ‘OUTRAGEOUS’ claims that prez is a ‘racist’

(National SentinelHitting Back: White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was clearly agitated on Tuesday over the establishment media’s continued accusations that President Donald J. Trump is racist.

In addition, Sanders took a swipe at Democrats including Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of New York for making s similar unsubstantiated claim.

During the daily press conference on Tuesday, Fox News reporter John Roberts questioned Sanders saying, “(Schumer) said last night ‘Mr. President show you’re not a racist, cut a deal on DACA.’”

Roberts noted that Schumer is clearly trying to use Trump’s alleged remarks about African countries being “sh–holes” — which the president and others have refuted — as a point of leverage.

“Look, I think that it is an outrageous claim,” Sanders shot back. “Frankly, I think if the critics of the president were who he said he was, why did NBC give him a show for a decade on TV?”

“Why did Chuck Schumer and all his colleagues come and beg Donald Trump for money?” she continued, referencing their successful attempts to convince Trump to financially support their campaigns in the past.

“If they are who they want to try to portray him as, why did they want to be with him for years and years in various activities, whether it was events and fundraisers and other things?” Sanders continued. “I think it’s just an outrageous and ludicrous excuse.”

She noted further, “It’s a sad day for our country. They’re willing to throw away the progress and negotiations and not make big steps that we need to happen, whether it’s funding our military, supporting our government or making a deal on DACA, which they say is a huge priority, something they want to do.”

Trump has blamed Democrats for refusing to work with him and Republicans to come up with a viable immigration bill compromise regarding so-called “Dreamers.”

Obama says Fox News viewers live ‘on a different planet;’ Newt Gingrich just HAS to school him

(National Sentinel‘Fantasy’: Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich had a scathing response to former President Obama’s claim that viewers of Fox News “live on a different planet” than those who watch NPR or other Left-leaning media outlets.

In an interview with Fox News‘ Sean Hannity, the former Speaker said it will be Obama who, many years from now, will still be living in a fantasy world, convinced that his policies in the White House were successful.

“I listened to (Obama’s comments) and I thought to myself, ‘This guy is so whacked,’” Gingrich stated, adding that the former Democratic president still doesn’t “get it.”

“Many, many years from now in a nursing home, or a nice retirement community, Barack Obama will be still living in a fantasy life. He’ll think that Iran really wanted to have a deal, he’ll think that high taxes really work, he’ll think that welfare’s a good deal,” Gingrich said.

Hannity went on to criticize the establishment media’s coverage of President Donald J. Trump, saying they lived in a fantasy world believing against all credibility that the president’s campaign colluded with Russia to steal the election from Democrat Hillary Clinton.

Despite a year and a half’s worth of investigating, neither Congress nor the FBI or Justice Department has found any evidence to support the allegations.

Gingrich, who is writing a book called “Trump’s America,” explained the divide in news coverage of the president and Republicans in general.

“Over here is a left-wing, corrupt establishment which sincerely sees this fight as a function of identity politics in which if they lose, they will disappear,” he said.

“Over here are the rest of us who are thinking, ‘A lot of these ideas are really weird,’” noting that Americans are unable to relate to Obama’s thinking on the Iran deal and his progressive ideals pushed while in the White House.

Obama made his comments on David Letterman’s new Netflix series, “My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman,” which debuted on Friday.

“One of the biggest challenges we have to our democracy is the degree to which we don’t share a common baseline of facts,” he said, as reported by The Hill.  “If you watch Fox News, you are living on a different planet than you are if you are listening to NPR.”

The latter has often been criticized for having an extreme Left-wing viewpoint.

Left is trying to GOAD Trump into firing ‘dirty cop’ Mueller with threats of violence, COUP

analysis
By J.D. Heyes, editor-in-chief

(National Sentinel) Political BaitingAs President Donald J. Trump becomes more successful in reviving our country after it was rendered moribund by former President Obama and his top-down, bureaucracy-heavy, one-size-fits-all, economy-killing approach to government, the far-Left is getting more and more unhinged.

And angry.

You see, they were all in for Obama’s “transformation” of America from a successful, growing, robust, powerful global leader into a declining, weak, economically drained shell of its former self. But they don’t want to have anything at all to do with the Trump revival, and in fact, they are doing all they can to disrupt Trump and destroy any chance he has at making America great again.

That’s why the angry Left is pushing for widespread civil unrest, perpetual outrage, and outright destruction if “dirty cop” Robert Mueller winds up being out of a job, thanks to being fired by the head of the Executive Branch.

In recent days Americans have learned a great deal about the operation put in place during Obama’s reign to undermine Trump’s chances of pulling off what many considered to be an election upset against Democratic rival Hillary Clinton.

What’s more, Americans have learned that there may even have been an actual coup planned by some members of the FBI and Department of Justice, including agent Peter Strzok, FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, FBI lawyer Lisa Page, and Department of Justice official Bruce Ohr.

And of course, it’s an open secret that special counsel Robert Mueller is completely compromised and has a major conflict of interest in investigating Team Trump for alleged “collusion” with Mother Russia during last year’s election. In fact, some of the same anti-Trump players have managed to ‘find’ themselves on Mueller’s team — which, of course, is not by accident, as no one gets on Mueller’s team unless he hires them. And since Mueller has been swimming in the DC Swamp for a long, long time, he knows everyone he hired — including their animus towards the president.

Through it all, however, Trump has survived. And now that he and Republicans in Congress are onto the plot, there is widespread concern among the radical Left that Mueller’s days may be numbered.

Since Mueller represents the best remaining opportunity to get rid of Trump, the Left is already gearing up for the special counsel’s possible demise by agitating supporters and inciting them to “resist.”

As noted by PJ Media, there appeared to be a coordinated effort by Left-wing groups and individuals over the weekend to “take to the streets” if or when Mueller is fired by Trump.

The call to riot is not simply being issued by radical Leftist groups. Radical Leftist individuals, including former Obama officials like Eric Holder, who is a former attorney general, are also calling for resistance.

As reported by The National Sentinel, Holder issued his second thinly-veiled threat in a week that there would be hell to pay if “Republicans” or the president fire Mueller. (Related: CHAOS ALERT: Dem leader calls for deploying UN troops on the streets of America.)

“ABSOLUTE RED LINE: the firing of Bob Mueller or crippling the special counsel’s office. If removed or meaningfully tampered with, there must be mass, popular, peaceful support of both. The American people must be seen and heard – they will ultimately be determinative,” tweeted Holder on Sunday.

Earlier last week Holder tweeted, “Speaking on behalf of the vast majority of the American people, Republicans in Congress be forewarned: any attempt to remove Bob Mueller will not be tolerated.These are BS attacks on him/his staff that are blatantly political-designed to hide the real wrongdoing. Country not party.”

Why should this surprise me? After all, Obama’s CIA director, John Brennan, suggested over the summer that there be a coup against Trump if he fires Mueller.

The thing is, none of this is real. They goad the president with these threats.

The Swamp understands that Mueller is their last, best hope to get rid of Trump, one way or another: Either Trump gives them the opening they need to impeach him, or Mueller finds evidence of “high crimes and misdemeanors.”

The latter is far less likely than the former.

Gingrich says Trump ‘decisively reining in the Left’ — will the CFPB be next domino to fall?

(National SentinelRight-Leaning: President Donald J. Trump has made great progress in dismantling the Left-leaning agenda of his predecessor, former President Barack Obama, and is continue to make good progress in returning the country to a more conservative, constitutional footing, according to former House Speaker Newt Gingrich.

“While the mainstream media has fixated on exaggerated day-to-day mini-controversies, the Trump Administration has methodically eliminated job-killing Obama-era regulations, filled judicial vacancies with solid conservatives at an astonishing pace, and accomplished real breakthroughs in trade relations with China and the Middle East,” he wrote in a column for Fox News, where he is a contributor.

Now, he noted, Trump is working to neuter the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, a creation of the so-called “Dodd-Frank” financial reform legislation Obama signed into law in 2010 following the financial crisis of 2008.

Gingrich said he’s been a longtime opponent of the CFPB because he believes it is unconstitutionally unaccountable to Congress, and by design.

Earlier this week Trump named Mick Muvaney, former head of the Office of Management and Budget, to lead the CFPB. That appointment is being challenged by Leandra English, the agency’s deputy director, in a lawsuit. English was appointed by outgoing director Richard Cordray, who claimed the 2010 law gives him, not the president, the authority to name successors.

U.S. District Judge Timothy Kelly ruled against English this week and refused to issue a temporary restraining order that would prevent Mulvaney from taking over while allowing her to assume the role of acting director.

“The CFPB consistently oversteps its bounds. It is prohibited from regulating car deals, yet it does so anyway. It is prohibited from collecting personal data from consumers, yet it does so at a scale that rivals the NSA’s most controversial data gathering operations,” Gingrich wrote.

“Further, the CFPB draws its funding from the Federal Reserve’s operating expenses rather than annual appropriations – making it unaccountable to Congress,” he said.

Additionally, the writers of the Dodd-Frank legislation added provisions stating that only a president can remove a CFPB director, and even then only under certain conditions.

That also unconstitutionally limits Executive and Legislative Branch authorities, Gingrich wrote.

“Essentially, the bureau can do whatever it wants – without fear of losing its funding or its leadership,” he said.

But he added that Trump has already prevailed in court by having his appointment of Mulvaney, a staunch critic of the bureau, upheld for the time being.

Now, “Congress and the President should now work to abolish the CFPB as soon as possible, or at the very least, bring this rogue agency back under the rule of law,” says Gingrich.

Teen Vogue writer has no problem if ‘innocent men’ accused of sexual harassment lose their jobs

(National SentinelAlt-Left: A writer for Teen Vogue said in a recent column that if men who are wrongly accused of sexual harassment wind up losing their jobs, she thinks that’s not a problem.

Columnist Emily Lindin claimed she wasn’t “concerned” about “innocent men losing their jobs over false sexual assault/harassment allegations,” this week.

“Here’s an unpopular opinion: I’m actually not at all concerned about innocent men losing their jobs over false sexual assault/harassment allegations,” declared Teen Vogue’s Lindin in a series of posts on Twitter.

“False allegations VERY rarely happen, so even bringing it up borders on a derailment tactic. It’s a microscopic risk in comparison to the issue at hand (worldwide, systemic oppression of half the population).”

She did not accompany her claims with statistics or facts.

Her opinion was immediately assailed by others on Twitter, including CNN‘s Jake Tapper, who tweeted, “I’m guessing you didn’t get a good grade for your 7th grade book report on To Kill A Mockingbird.”

In response, Linden appeared to accuse Tapper of being sexist.

“I wish you would have set a better example of how to have a conversation on Twitter. Instead you piled on with a deliberate misreading,” she tweeted.

Tapper responded: “I read the thread. You said ‘if some innocent men’s reputations have to take a hit in the process of undoing the patriarchy, that is a price I am absolutely willing to pay.’ That’s immoral. And it’s not a price *you* would be paying, btw. It would be innocent men doing that.”

Donald Trump Jr. also weighed in. “Yea who cares if innocent men lose their jobs or spend a few years in jail? This is the left today, and they’re only getting worse. These are the true fascists,” he said in a tweet.

Lindin has since set her Twitter account, which has over 23,000 followers, to private.

Teen Vogue, which is set to be guest-edited by two-time losing presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in December, has previously faced controversy. In July, writer Lauren Duca posted, “Wake me up when men are obsolete,” on Twitter.

Also, in June, the magazine called “March Against Sharia” hate speech, while in July it was criticized for an anal sex tutorial for its young readers.

University of Illinois instructor arrested after confronting conservative students

(National SentinelAlt-Left: A University of Illinois Ph.D. candidate was arrested last week after violently confronting a group of conservative students and damaging a cellphone belonging to one of them.

Tariq Khan, who has taught several courses at the university, faces criminal charges after being seen aggressively confronting a group of conservative students.

Khan was speaking at an anti-Trump event on campus when the group of conservative students showed up to protest the event, The Daily Illini student newspaper reported last week.

According to videos published by Campus Reform and The College Fix, Khan became unhinged when a student identified as Joel Valdez, an executive board member and campus activism coordinator for “Turning Point USA” heckled him.

On the video, Valdez can be heard yelling, “No one’s scared of you, 50-year-old man! Don’t you have kids to look after?”

At that, Khan charged the group and repeatedly accused Valdez of threatening to harm his children.

At one point the instructor appeared to assault one of the students and take his cellphone. He then began to walk away while the student group can be overheard saying they would call the police. Khan then threw the phone on the sidewalk and left.

University police reported that Khan forcibly took a student’s cellphone and threw it down, breaking it, The Daily Illini reported.

Khan maintained that he never assaulted anyone and that he would not stand for threats against his children, though it isn’t at all clear that’s what Valdez did.

“Khan immediately charged us, pushing us, throwing punches,” Valdez told the newspaper. “We then attempted to defuse the situation and remained calm, but Tariq was uncontrollable and unhinged. I’m certain that Khan knew there was no threat; he just wanted to look for a fight. I wasn’t interested.”

Said Khan: “I did not confront them out of the blue. In fact, they showed up to the rally to intimidate and surveil leftist student organizers. One of their members … made a veiled threat against my children. It’s one thing to criticize my politics, it’s entirely another thing to threaten my children.”

Dartmouth college prof will donate HALF of book proceeds to ANTIFA

(National SentinelRadicalism: A professor at Dartmouth College has said he will donate half of the proceeds from his new book to the domestic terrorist organization Antifa.

Mark Bray, who became an unofficial spokesperson for the movement after publishing “The Anti-Fascist Handbook,” said the donations will go to a fund that helps cover the legal, medical, and personal expenses of Antifa activists, Campus Reform reported.

In the book, Bray noted that the organization openly rejects the traditional interpretation of the Constitution’s First Amendment.

“At the heart of the anti-fascist outlook is a rejection of the classical liberal phrase incorrectly ascribed to Voltaire that ‘I disapprove of what you have to say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it,’” the professor wrote, noting further that “after Auschwitz and Treblinka, anti-fascists committed themselves to fighting to the death the ability of organized Nazis to say anything.”

Antifa and other far-Left groups claim that President Donald J. Trump is a fascist and racist, as are his supporters. As such, they have unilaterally claimed the right to use violence to shut down their ability to speak.

It’s unclear what Bray’s personal involvement is in Antifa. However, a recent profile of the professor in The Chronicle of Higher Education notes that he plans to donate half of his proceeds from the handbook to an unnamed fun that supports legal, medical, and personal expenses of Antifa activists.

As Politico reported in September, both the Department of Homeland Security and the FBI had referred to Antifa as “domestic terrorists.”

Dartmouth’s leadership released a statement in August distancing the school from him, claiming that “recent statements made by Lecturer in History Mark Bray supporting violent protest do not represent the views of Dartmouth. As an institution, we condemn anything but civil discourse in the exchange of opinions and ideas.”

“Dartmouth embraces free speech and open inquiry in all matters, and all on our campus enjoy the freedom to speak, write, listen and debate in pursuit of better learning and understanding; however, the endorsement of violence in any form is contrary to Dartmouth values,” the statement continued.

But 17 Dartmouth professors subsequently undermined that statement, demanding that the president retract it and apologize Bray “exposing him to entirely predictable possibility of physical harm,” Campus Reform reported.

Wisconsin College Dems leader: ‘I f—ing hate white men’

(National SentinelAcademic Bias: The vice-chairperson of the Wisconsin College Democrats lashed out last week against “white men,” become only the latest controversial statement she’s made recently.

According to images obtained by Campus Reform, arah Semrad, a junior at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse, allegedly wrote that “I f***ing hate white men” in a tweet on Thursday.

After the initial backlash, Media Trackers reports that Semrad proceeded to delete her private Twitter account as well as her Facebook profile.

In recent weeks, another tweeted image obtained by Campus Reform appears to show Semrad — who looks white in her profile — admitting to “tearing down all the pro life Christian pregnancy resource center fliers” that had been posted on campus.

“My new bit is tearing down all the pro life Christian pregnancy resource center fliers that they put up around campus to try & trick people,” Semrad allegedly tweeted in October.

According to a bio posted on the College Democrats of Wisconsin website, Semrad says she is a Democrat “because I believe in strong public schools for all [students] across Wisconsin.”

“I believe everyone, regardless of race, age, religion, or gender deserves the equal opportunity to [achieve] anything they put their mind to,” it adds.

She further says she believes in strong labor unions and the right of individuals to “marry the person they love.”

Campus Reform reported that it attempted to contact the Wisconsin College Democrats organization for comment, but received no response.

Fired UCLA free-speech professor warns: ‘No one is safe’

(National SentinelInstitutional Bias: A communications professor and staunch advocate for freedom of speech who was fired by UCLA recently warned a group of conservative and libertarian students enrolled there that they are not “safe” from persecution because of their political beliefs.

As reported by The College Fix, former Prof. Keith Fink told a group called Bruins Republicans, “If they can get rid of professor like me for speaking his mind, what is stopping them from doing the same thing to all of you?

The Bruin is the school’s mascot.

“We are in the middle of another Red Scare,” Fink, an attorney and longtime lecturer terminated by the university earlier this year despite despite being popular, told students.

Often, his classes — which concentrated on the First Amendment’s guaranteed right of free speech — many times had waiting lists of 200-plus students.

Fink made his observations during a speech last week for the GOP campus club, The College Fix noted. During a lecture titled, “UCLA’s Dirty Tricks Against Conservatives,” he said of the school’s leaders, “They twist the rules, they distort the rules, they ignore the rules.”

The site noted further:

Fink was fired over the summer after he did not pass a performance review, one he said was biased against him. He told students the current communications department chair, Kerri Johnson, “despised” him and wanted him gone.

The former professor described Johnson as “very far to the Left,” adding he personally does not believe in “safe spaces or microaggressions.”

Fink did acknowledge that often his classes were intense, but he said that socratic dialogue was meant to be confrontational. He said he told students who did not want to be confronted about their views to “go take the dolphin class.”

Still, when asked if he would ever return to UCLA, Fink responded: “I could teach many, many places. I want to teach here.”

Actor James Woods drops a truth bomb about the NRA and mass shootings

(National SentinelGun Rights and Wrongs: In the wake of the Texas church shootings on Sunday, liberals and progressives were once again calling for new gun control measures and singling out the National Rifle Association, which is staunchly pro-Second Amendment, for abuse.

But actor James Woods dropped a truth bomb about the organization and mass killings in America countering those who continue to criticize a group whose only ‘crime’ is standing up for the Constitution.

In the aftermath of the shootings, which saw 26 people murdered by Air Force reject Devin Kelley, Woods used social media to link an Independent Journal Review article which suggested that no NRA member has been responsible for a mass shooting.

https://twitter.com/RealJamesWoods/status/927517940622209025

While the assertion is hard to prove definitively because of the imprecise definition of “mass shooting” and the fact that the NRA keeps its membership list private, reporter Victoria Taft told readers how she managed to at her conclusion in the Woods-linked story.

“If any of them had been (an NRA member) it would have been in the news,” she wrote.

She also linked to a question posted on Quora, which is an online question-and-answer blog that featured answers supporting Taft’s assumption.

Following last month’s Las Vegas mass shootings, NRA Executive Director Chris Cox appeared on Fox News‘ “Tucker Carlson Tonight” to say that after every such event, the Left quickly blames his organization.

“And that’s the one thing that is consistent, is they blame the one organization whose members don’t commit the crimes,” he said.

Others who responded to Trump’s tweet noted that NRA members have actually prevented shootings and other crimes.

‘It’s okay to be white’ sign sparking outrage on college campuses

(National SentinelRacism: Signs declaring that “It’s Okay to be White” adorning walls in universities around the country have sparked widespread backlash and anger, The College Fix reports.

The site reported that some of the signs have also been spotted on college campuses in Canada as well.

The signs were launched via a coordinated 4chan campaign. Users spelled out their “game plan” on the anonymous Internet forum board instructing people to post the signs on campuses to prompt the media to go “completely berserk.”

The ultimate goal was to show what 4chan users called “normies” that “leftists & journalists hate white people,” in turn prompting these middle-of-the-road folks to turn on them in a “massive victory for the right in the culture war.”

In fact, the signs have already done what they were designed to do — gain widening coverage and spark outrage.

But others have begun questioning why saying “it’s okay to be white” should automatically be considered racist.

Colleges such as Harvard, Princeton, Tulane, Western Washington, Auburn, the University of Kansas and Concordia College have had the posters appear on campus. The University of Alberta and the University of Toronto also saw the signs, as did a high school in Maryland. Typically, the signs are removed quickly by university staff when they are found.

Though the signs were meant to troll Left-leaning students, many of them took the bait.

Here’s just one example: “I am deeply disgusted that this organized online campaign to divide university communities across the country has come to our campus. It is shameful that anyone would use these posters to promote a racist agenda,” University of Kansas’ student body president, Mady Womack, told the Kansan.

Here’s another: “The university is aware of several incidents of racism that have occurred on north campus in recent days… Messaging or displays that target or marginalize any individuals or groups will not be tolerated. We are working with University of Alberta Protective Services to find the parties responsible,” President David Turpin said in a statement.

The flyers have been widely denounced as “racist” and “intolerant.”

What? Michelle Obama claims men are ‘entitled’ because women protect them too much

(National SentinelSexism: Former first lady Michelle Obama has claimed that men are “entitled” and “self-righteous” and that women are too protective of them.

At the first Obama Foundation summit, held in Chicago Wednesday, babied and protected by women, while women are raised to be “strong,” Fox News reports.

“It’s like the problem in the world today is we love our boys, and we raise our girls,” Obama said. “We raise them to be strong, and sometimes we take care not to hurt men — and I think we pay for that a little bit.

“Y’all should get you some friends,” Obama continued, jokingly. “And talk to each other, because that’s the other thing [women] do — we straighten each other out on some things, our girlfriends.”

Continuing, she said, “It’s powerful to have strong men, but what does that strength mean? You know, does it mean respect? Does it mean responsibility? Does it mean compassion?”

She then went on to wonder aloud if women protect men to the point they feel “entitled” and “self-righteous.”

“Are we protecting our men too much so they feel a little entitled and … self-righteous sometimes? But, that’s kind of on us too as women and mothers, as we nurture men and push girls to be perfect,” Obama said.

It’s not the first time in recent weeks the former first lady has made controversial statements. Last mont she came under fire after suggesting that Republicans are essentially “all men, all white.”

George Washington’s church now wants to rip out his memorial

(National SecurityActivism: In an odd twist, the Virginia church our first president attended for 20 years is planning to tear out his memorial because leaving it in place could make some worshippers feel “unsafe or unwelcome.”

George Washington became a founding member of Christ Church in Alexandria, Va., in 1773, but now church leaders want to remove his memorial and a similar memorial to Confederate commanding Gen. Robert E. Lee, the Washington Times reports.

Church officials claim that the memorials, which are positioned to the left and right of the altar, are now too divisive and are likely discouraging some parishioners from attending services.

“The plaques in our sanctuary make some in our presence feel unsafe or unwelcome,” the church leaders said, according to the Washington Times. “Some visitors and guests who worship with us choose not to return because they receive an unintended message from the prominent presence of the plaques.”

The decision to take down the memorials now places the church in the middle of a nationwide debate fueled by the Left regarding the display of memorials to historic U.S. figures whose acts or statements do not align with their social norms of today.

Several groups have protested recently against memorials to Confederate generals, for instance, including Lee, as well as transformative presidents like Andrew Jackson and even Abraham Lincoln.

Rev. Noelle York-Simmons, rector of Christ Church, told the Washington Times that the decision to remove the memorials was made via a “unanimous vote” of the church leadership committee, or vestry.

Church leaders say they will remove the plaques by next summer, but there has yet to be a decision regarding how they will be displayed elsewhere on church grounds.

“The new display location will be determined by a parish committee,” York-Simmons said. “That location will provide a place for our parish to offer a fuller narrative of our rich history, including the influence of these two powerful men on our church and our country.”

Limbaugh: ‘Obvious’ Trump is succeeding

(National SentinelPolitical Agendas: Talk show giant Rush Limbaugh took some time to just absorb the opposition — Democrats, RINOs, the media — surrounding President Donald J. Trump’s administration thus far and came up with a singular conclusion: Trump is winning, and it’s patently obviously that he is winning when you look at all the evidence.

“The Democrats are having to circle the wagons in ways in which they have been hoping and praying Trump would have to,” Limbaugh observed Thursday.

“When you take a day off and you look at all of this — and all I did was absorb it without having any outlet to comment on it — it is obvious who’s coming unglued here,” he said. “And it’s obvious who’s losing their cookies. And it’s obvious who’s becoming unhinged.”

Despite the fact that every day is a battle for Trump, he is the one who keeps coming out on top.

“They’ve fired every weapon they’ve got with every bit of ammo they’ve got, and nothing is getting rid of Trump,” Limbaugh noted. “Nothing is really derailing the Trump agenda other than some recalcitrant Republicans.”

Despite it all, the Trump agenda is moving ahead. Also, Limbaugh noted, Trump’s detractors have yet to impact his base.

“After almost a year now of lies from the deep state and leaks that were treated as gospel by the drive-by media, they’ve got nothing,” he said, referring to the various investigations into hoaxes like ‘Russian collusion.’

“They can’t find any Russians that anybody can find who colluded with anybody, other than the ambassador who had lunch every day with everybody,” he continued.

And because they’ve yet to ‘indict’ Trump on anything substantial, the Alt-Left and the perpetually angry Democrats are now attempting to portray him as ‘unfit’ for office.

“So they have moved directions to ‘Trump is nuts, Trump is unhinged, Trump is insane.’ It shows up now in every commentary,” he said. “It’s all day, just like the Russia stuff was. It’s all day on PMSNBC and it’s all day on CNN.”

“He doesn’t appear to be disturbed, bothered, upset. He doesn’t appear to be deranged,” Limbaugh said. “He exhibits none of the characteristics that the drive-by media says with their associates.”

“Millions of people do not think Trump is nuts … or anything of the sort,” he said.

But those same people do think his detractors are.
