    A Michigan middle school teacher packed up his belongings and resigned from his job mid-school day after school officials told him repeatedly to remove a pride flag in his classroom.  "They were asking me to be complicit and in keeping this group of students marginalized, and all I've gone through education is to fight for those students," Russell Ball said, WXMI reported. "It wasn't something I was going to do." Ball, who taught 7th grade health and eighth grade family consumer science, packed up his belongings during third period on Nov. 22 at Three Rivers Middle School. He had received an email from the school’s principal on Nov. 19 telling staff to remove pride flags from their classrooms. Ball left his flag in place after the first email.  CALIFORNIA TEACHER BOASTS NOT HAVING AMERICAN FLAG, TELLS STUDENTS TO PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE TO GAY PRIDE FLAG "Due to an external challenge in the district that has reached the board level, I have been advised that staff in the building who have pride flags hanging in their rooms will need to take them...
    The Marysville school district in Washington state has doubled down on a decision to make an unnamed teacher remove a Thin Blue Line flag from her middle school classroom, but Black lives Matter and LGBTQ flags remain welcome in the school district. Superintendent Chris Pearson sent a letter to families and staff September 27, stating the teacher breached school policy regarding political speech by hanging the flag from her wall: Some concerns have been raised about the display of the Thin Blue Line Flag in a classroom, particularly as it relates to the aforementioned policies. As a symbol, in and of itself, with no instructional purpose or educational context, the Thin Blue Line Flag can be interpreted in a variety of ways by students who come from very diverse backgrounds.  While it might be viewed by some as a tribute to police, this symbol was also used by hate groups in the 2017 far-right rally in Charlottesville, and was also carried by rioters during the January 6th attacks on the US Capital. Therefore, without any educational context or purpose, the display...
    Anti-sex abuse movement Time's Up has been accused of acting as a mouthpiece for outgoing New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, and posting about a sexual assault survivor who was a vocal Cuomo critic.  The allegations come days after attorney Roberta Kaplan resigned as chairwoman of Time's Up, telling the board that her work there was 'no longer compatible' with her job as a private lawyer. One former staffer said of the organization: 'It was patriarchy in a dress.'  Workers at Times's up said they were blasted by bosses after sharing New York State Senator Alessandra Biaggi's story on social media. Biaggi is a sexual assault survivor, and a vocal critic of Cuomo.  Workers say they were forced to remove an image of Biaggi after Cuomo's office called up to complain about her being featured so prominently on a site with close ties to the outgoing New York State Governor. Staff say the Biaggi incident meant they were unsurprised at Time's Up's muted response to sexual harassment allegations against Cuomo when they first emerged in December 2020.   Kaplan helped New York...
    The U.S. military is sending thousands of troops to safely remove State Department staff from the U.S. Embassy in Kabul, Afghanistan. The emergency move comes as a Taliban takeover of the country could be weeks, if not days away — and it's happening with alarming speed. Taliban forces now control two-thirds of Afghanistan and its second largest city, Kandahar, has just fallen.  Some predict the capital will come under attack within 30 days. The U.S.-backed Afghan military has been no match for Taliban fighters who are taking advantage of the vacuum left by the U.S. troop withdrawal. With stunning speed, Taliban fighters are sweeping across Afghanistan. On top of Kandahar, the Taliban has also taken the third-largest city Herat, dealing another moral and strategic blow to the Afghan government. After seizing the city of Ghazni, the Taliban is now only about 90 miles southwest of Kabul. A Taliban fighter stands guard at the entrance of the police headquarters in Ghazni on August 12, 2021.

    Facebook is refusing to remove an advert from its social media platform which claims Congresswoman Ilhan Omar has links to Hamas. Omar's office reached out to the company to inform them the message was incorrect, with fears if could incite people to make death threats towards the lawmaker.    The advert was made by a pro-Israeli lobbyist group, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee. Pro-Israel lobby AIPAC ran an ad falsely linking US Rep. Ilhan Omar to Hamas, pictured above In one ad, Omar's face can be seen  superimposed onto a scene of Hamas firing rockets towards Israel. The accompanying text reads: 'When Israel targets Hamas, Rep. Omar calls it an act of terrorism.' The ad is a twist on a tweet made by the congresswoman in which she said that Israeli airstrikes that kill civilians in Gaza was an act of terrorism.  However, Omar did not say that Israeli airstrikes that target Hamas were terrorist acts. 'Israeli air strikes killing civilians in Gaza is an act of terrorism. Palestinians deserve protection,' she wrote. 'Unlike Israel, missile defense programs, such as Iron...

    Washington (CNN)Former White House chief of staff John Kelly said Thursday that if he were a member of President Donald Trump's Cabinet he would support using the 25th Amendment to the Constitution to remove the President from office following a deadly riot at the US Capitol. "Yes, I would," Kelly told CNN's Jake Tapper on "The Lead" when asked if he would be in support of invoking the amendment if he had a vote.The comments from Kelly, who left the White House under contentious circumstances in January 2019, come as a growing list of Democratic and Republican members of Congress are calling for Trump to be removed from office either through impeachment or the 25th Amendment after a violent mob of Trump supporters stormed the US Capitol on Wednesday."I think that the Cabinet should meet and have a discussion. I don't think that it'll happen, but I think the Cabinet should meet and discuss this because the behavior yesterday and in the weeks and months before that has just been outrageous from the President," said Kelly, who has occasionally criticized...
    Spokesman Andy Stone said Facebook applied its dangerous group level “without regard to political position or party affiliation,” and that the discussion of threats to staff was “part of the standard process.” Stone didn’t say whether or not Facebook considered Bajrang Dal dangerous, however. Facebook did take down a video showing a Bajrang Dal invasion of a church that reportedly led to a pastor being attacked, although the group has insisted that it’s strictly legal and doesn’t conflict with other religious groups. The report highlights the challenges Facebook faces in dealing with extremism. The company has been accused of moving too slowly, and in at least one case of downplaying warnings. It clearly doesn’t want to put its employees’ lives at risk, though, and affected politicians might ask for bans on Facebook itself. The firm has to weigh multiple considerations, and there isn’t always a happy middle ground.
    Staff at Washington and Lee University, a small liberal arts university in Virginia, have voted to take off the name of Confederate General Robert E. Lee.  Approximately 79 per cent of the 260 faculty members at the Lexington university decided to remove the name of the general in a vote held over a Zoom meeting on Tuesday.  For the change to officially take hold, the board of trustees will have to vote yes, Forbes reports.  'We are aware that many of you think it should be easy to make a quick decision, but that is not the case,' Mike McAlevey, who leads the board, said in a statement.  Approximately 79 per cent of the 260 faculty members voted to remove General Robert E Lee's name from Washington and Lee University on Tuesday 'We have been known as Washington and Lee University for 150 years. Reviewing the name of a distinguished and historic institution is a task not to be taken lightly.'  McAlevey added that the trustees were committed to building a diverse, inclusive community. But of the school's 1,829 undergraduates,...
