University of Connecticut Student Narrowly Avoids Jail For Using the N-Word

Observers say statute is a violation of First Amendment rights.

A University of Connecticut student who was arrested for using the n-word has narrowly avoided jail.

Jarred Karal was arrested after he was filmed walking through a parking lot and shouting the word “n*gger.” He was with two other individuals, one of whom was also arrested.

The students claimed they were playing a game centered around screaming vulgar words, but were charged under CGS 53-37, “ridicule on account of creed, religion, color, denomination, nationality or race.”

Karal was originally facing up to 30 days in jail, but a judge accepted Karal’s plea for accelerated rehabilitation, under which he will spend 6 months on probation while completing 20 hours of community service.

The student will also be forced to under go “diversity and bias” training.

At the time of his arrest, some observers noted that the treatment of Karal was at odds with the First Amendment.

University of California at Los Angeles law professor Eugene Volokh slammed the Connecticut state statute under which Karal was charged, labeling it “obviously unconstitutional, because it suppresses speech based on its content (and viewpoint), and because there’s no First Amendment exception for speech that insults based on race or religion.”

The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) also told Campus Reform, “FIRE is deeply concerned by the investigation and arrest of two students by the University of Connecticut Police Department pursuant to a statue that any reasonable police officer would have known is unconstitutional. However offensive the use of a racial epithet, not directed at any person, the First Amendment protects offensive language, and neither the University of Connecticut nor its police officers may abridge students’ First Amendment rights.”

Hillary Claims Facebook Conspiring To Re-Elect Trump

‘Authoritarian’ Zuckerberg is ‘Trumpian’

Conspiracy theorist Presidential failure Hillary Clinton declared this past weekend that she believes Facebook is conspiring to re-elect President Trump.

In an interview with Atlantic, Hillary proclaimed that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is an “authoritarian” who “intend[s] to reelect Trump.”

As evidence, Hillary pointed to Facebook leaving up a slowed-down video of Nancy Pelosi that someone uploaded to the platform.

“I said, ‘Why are you guys keeping this up? This is blatantly false. Your competitors have taken it down. And their response was, ‘We think our users can make up their own minds,'” Clinton said, adding that “They have, in my view, contorted themselves into making arguments about freedom of speech and censorship.”

Hillary was, knowingly or not, parroting comments made just hours earlier by Globalist influencer George Soros, who said “Facebook will work to re-elect Trump and Trump will protect Facebook.”

“It makes me very concerned about the outcome of 2020,” he said during an Open Society Foundation dinner at the World Economic Forum in Davos.

Soros described Trump as “the ultimate narcissist” and a “con man” who wants the world to “revolve around him.”

The two leftists’ claims are particularly laughable given that Facebook has taken to routinely censoring conservative posts and opinion en mass, while allowing leftists to weaponise the platform.

Hillary and Soros are also basing their claims on the fact that Facebook has refused to censor political ads, despite some claiming such posts have contained disputable claims. Yet, they fail to mention that Facebook is allowing such content from both sides of the political spectrum.

Americans Aren’t Interested in Trump’s Impeachment

If Google trends is anything to go by.

Published

Google Trends data illustrates how Americans aren’t really interested in the impeachment of President Donald Trump.

Mike Cernovich posted the search interest data for the keywords “impeach” and “impeachment,” showing interest drastically slipping from its December high.

“Friends (and foes), there are objective ways to measure the public’s interest in a subject like impeachment,” tweeted Cernovich. “You can see interest peaked (not to be confused with piqued) in December. Interest fell off a cliff, and here we are.”

Another graph shows that interest in impeachment was actually higher back in September last year than it is now.

Despite much hyperventilating by the media, the start of Trump’s Senate impeachment trial was watched by around 11 million viewers across 10 broadcast and cable television networks.

That’s down on the 13.8 million viewers who tuned in last November for the first day of the Congressional impeachment inquiry.

Perhaps most Americans understand that with virtually zero chance of Trump being impeached by the Senate, the whole charade is merely a show trial to try to keep a cloud over the president going into the 2020 campaign.

Trump Says He’d Love To Attend Senate Trial, “Sit right in front row and stare in their corrupt faces”

“Corrupt” Press have won Pulitzers for “Russian hoax”

President Trump declared Wednesday that he would love to attend the Senate impeachment trial and stare his accusers down.

Speaking from the World Economic Forum in Davos, Trump told a reporter “I’d love to go. Would that be great? Would that be beautiful?”

“Why don’t you go?” the reporter asked.

“I don’t know, I’d sort of love to sit right in the front row and stare in their corrupt faces. I’d love to do it.” Trump replied

“Why don’t you?” the reporter again asked.

“I don’t know. Don’t keep talking because I may— you may convince me to do it.” Trump replied, but acknowledging his lawyers wouldn’t love it.

The President then imagined ‘pencil neck’ Adam Schiff speaking at the hearing.

“He’ll stand, he’ll look at a microphone and he’ll talk like he’s so aggrieved,” he said, declaring Schiff to be a “major sleaze bag.”

Trump also had some choice words for the media, calling the press “partners” in the “Russian hoax”.

“If we could straighten out the press in our country, we would have a place that is so incredible.” Trump urged.

“The press is so dishonest, so corrupt. I read it all the time. I don’t mind bad stories. I deserve bad stories sometimes. But when I do something great,or good, let it be written about good! Same thing with other people.” the President added.

“The corruption in the media, as I call it, the fake news media is unbelievable and hopefully everybody is going to sort of learn a lesson. People got Pulitzer Prizes for their coverage of me. And it turned out they were totally wrong.” Trump continued.

The President described the impeachment effort as “a takedown attempt of a sitting president of the United States.”

“The Russian hoax is a terrible thing. The dossier was a phony deal, paid for by Hillary Clinton and the DNC. And used in the FISA courts totally illegally. It’s a terrible thing that happened.” Trump asserted.

The President also took a moment to slam Hillary Clinton, weighing in on the beef between the two time loser and Bernie Sanders.

“When she says nobody likes him, nobody likes her. That’s why she lost, I mean, nobody likes her. She had every advantage. She had this big machine behind her. She had Obama, she had everybody behind,” Trump said.

“She’s the one that people don’t like.” he added.
