    Michigan Democrats were heavily criticized over the weekend for telling parents that they are not 'clients' of public schools and that public education teaches kids what society 'needs them to know.'   A Facebook post on Saturday shared by the state's Democrats on their official page blasted the idea that parents should be involved in what public school teach their children. The post was taken down on Monday morning following heavy disapproval. 'Not sure where this "parents-should-control-what-is-taught-in-schools-because-they-are-our-kids" is originating, but parents do have the option to send their kids to a hand-selected private school at their own expense if this is what they desire,' the post read.  'The purpose of public education in public schools is not to teach kids only what parents want them to be taught,' the Michigan Democratic Party’s post added. 'It is to teach them what society needs them to know. The client of the public school is not the parent, but the entire community, the public.' The Michigan Democratic Party later deleted the post on Martin Luther King Day and retracted its original statement. It is...
    The vast majority of Americans, regardless of political party, now say that American society and culture are in decline, according to a Thursday poll from the Trafalgar Group and Convention of States Action. The poll found that 76.8% of respondents believed U.S. society and culture are in a “state of decay,” with just 9.8% saying society and culture are in a “state of progress” and 13.4% saying they were unsure. The skepticism held true for all political leanings, with 61% of Democrats, 85.9% of Republicans and 81.8% of those who identify as non-partisan or other saying U.S. society and culture is in decline. The poll surveyed 1,076 likely general election voters between Dec. 17 and Dec. 21 and reported a margin of error of 3%.

    Author and U.S. senate candidate J.D. Vance (R-OH) joined Tucker Carlson Tonight on Wednesday evening to express his “disgust” at the Kyle Rittenhouse murder trial. Fox News host Tucker Carlson introduced Vance after accusing media of lying about the case, saying of Vance, “an honest man assesses what he has seen.” The Hillbilly Elegy writer and Peter Thiel acolyte jumped right in saying, “I think that it’s not a trial, it is child abuse masquerading as justice in this country!” Rittenhouse is on trial for shooting three men and killing two while attending the August 2020 riots in Kenosha, Wisconsin with an AR-15-style rifle. Vance, who is running in a crowded Republican primary, added, “This entire trial, this entire farce is an indictment on every institution in our society.” Vance continued: It’s an indictment of our disgusting president [Biden] who called him [Rittenhouse] a white supremacist even though he only shot other white people. It’s an indictment of our media which slandered and bullied a 17-year-old boy. I haven’t seen anything that disgusts me with the leaders of this country...
    (CNN)Roughly three-quarters of adults believe Facebook is making American society worse, a new CNN poll conducted by SSRS finds, with about half saying they know somebody who was persuaded to believe in a conspiracy theory because of the site's content.Americans say, 76% to 11%, that Facebook makes society worse, not better, according to the survey. Another 13% say it has no effect either way. That broadly negative appraisal holds across gender, age and racial lines. Even frequent Facebook users -- those who report using the site at least several times a week -- say 70% to 14% that the social network harms, rather than helps, US society. Although majorities across parties say Facebook is doing more harm than good, that feeling spikes among Republicans (82%).Among the majority overall who think Facebook is worsening society, however, there's less of an overwhelming consensus on whether or not the platform itself is primarily to blame: 55% say that the way some people use Facebook is more at fault, with 45% saying it's more due to the way Facebook itself is run.Overall, about one-third...
    Italy has long been a favoured destination for high society couples looking to tie the knot.  But this year, the country's relatively relaxed Covid restrictions have made it an even more appealing destination than ever, particularly for jet-set brides and grooms looking to bring together loved ones from around the world.   British socialite Lady Kitty Spencer, 30, and Marie Anunciata, 36, and Marie Astrid of Liechtenstein, 34, all chose Italy for their destination weddings, as did Irene Forte, following on from her civil service in London last year. Most recently British socialite Lady Charlotte Lindesay-Bethune and her husband Prince Jaime of Two Sicilies, wed in beautiful Palermo.  Speaking to FEMAIL, Jess Martin, a wedding planning expert at Ginger Ray, explained Italy's fast response to the Covid-19 pandemic earlier in the year gave couples the confidence to plan their weddings for the summer and early autumn.  Socialites have flocked to Italy this summer for their destination weddings. Experts told Femail what makes the Mediterranean country the perfect wedding hot spot. Pictured: Lady Kitty Spencer, 30, and her husband Matthew Lewis, 62, on...

    (CNN)Ethan Hawke remembered working on 1989's "Dead Poets Society" with Robin Williams during a speech at the Karlovy Vary Film Festival, where he picked up the President's Award. "I thought Robin hated me. He had a habit of making a ton of jokes on set. At 18, I found that incredibly irritating. He wouldn't stop and I wouldn't laugh at anything he did," he told the crowd according to Variety.But the two ended up being friends, after Williams set Hawke up with his first agent."He called, saying, 'Robin Williams says you are going to do really well.' There was this scene in the film when he makes me spontaneously make up a poem in front of the class. He made this joke at the end of it, saying that he found me intimidating. I thought it was a joke. As I get older, I realize there is something intimidating about young people's earnestness, their intensity. It is intimidating -- to be the person they think you are. Robin was that for me," Hawke added. Hawke also talked about his career...
    American Express distributed handouts to its employees detailing microaggressions to avoid, ways to understand one’s privilege and tips on how to “be an ally,” reveal whistleblower documents posted Wednesday and obtained by journalist Christopher Rufo. One of the materials tells the credit card company’s employees to “identify the privileges and advantages” they have before standing up for others. The employees were also advised not to speak over their black and African-American co-workers and refrain from giving “unsolicited advice” or making assumptions when listening to others’ stories. White employees are told not to utter common phrases such as “I don’t see color,” “we are all human beings,” and “everyone can succeed in this society if they work hard enough,” or they will be considered “microaggressors” against their black colleagues. pic.twitter.com/WcOT6wYJsm — Christopher F. Rufo ⚔️ (@realchrisrufo) August 11, 2021 Another handout from the same series lists a number of common phrases, calling them “microaggressions” towards members of minority groups. Saying things like, “I don’t see color,” “we are all human being,” “you’re so articulate” and “everyone can succeed in this...
    More than one-fifth of Britons aged under 35 say that they have just one or no close friends, according to a poll which is said to reveal that young people are “suffering an epidemic of loneliness”. The report Age of Alienation conducted by the British think tank Onward and published on Thursday found that the proportion of those aged 18 to 34 who say they have no or just one close friend had tripled in a decade from seven per cent to 22 per cent. In that time, those who claim to have four or more close friends had fallen from 64 per cent to 40 per cent. The study also found that under-35s were more isolated from their neighbours and are less likely to trust other people than the age bracket did in previous decades and less likely than over-35s in 2021. Millennials (born between 1980 and 1994) and Generation Z (born between 1995 and 2012) are also less likely to belong to groups, further suggesting generations in isolation. The director of Onward, Will Tanner, said the problem of...
    Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan has sparked fury by blaming 'temptation' for sexual violence against women.  It comes just two months after comments he made on sexual violence drew severe backlash.  In April, Khan caused fury when he suggested during a Q&A session that 'vulgarity' was to blame for rising sexual violence, singling out Bollywood, Hollywood, divorce, and the 'sex, drugs and rock and roll' culture of England in the 70s as examples of moral decline.  Defending his earlier remarks, Mr Khan siad in an interview with Axios HBO that aired on Monday: '...I said the concept of ''purdah''. The concept of "purdah" is avoid temptation in society. We don't have discos here, we don't have nightclubs. Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan, pictured above, has sparked fury by blaming 'temptation' for sexual violence against women The world got an insight into a mindset of a sick, misogynistic, degenerate & derelict IK. Its not women's choices that lead to sexual assault rather the choices of men who choose to engage in this dispicable and vile CRIME 1/2 pic.twitter.com/lla3WnWFdx— Marriyum...
    Ben Shapiro called a new poll showing 56 percent of voters saying American society overall is racist "shocking and devastating," warning on Fox News that those who believe the country is inherently racist will advocate the "complete destruction of the system" from within. "It’s shocking and devastating because it means one of two things," the conservative commentators told Martha MacCallum on "The Story" Tuesday night. "Either the majority of Americans believe that their family, friends and neighbors are actually racist… or they believe that the institutions of American society are so deeply corrupt and systematically racist that they have to be razed to the ground. The only solution if you believe that society, at this moment in 2020, is systematically racist or inherently racist is complete destruction of the system from within," he said.  The poll referenced by Shapiro came from The Wall Street Journal and NBC News.  It also showed that those who agreed that American society is racist broke down decidedly along party lines, with 82 percent of Democrats saying they believed it, with just 30 percent of...
