Top Canadian museum to be imminently gutted in the name of ‘decolonization’

Tristin Hopper: With little notice and even less transparency, the Royal B.C. Museum is demolishing some of Canada’s most iconic exhibits with no idea of what’s going to replace them

The Royal British Columbia Museum has been repeatedly voted as one of Canada’s top cultural attractions by reviewers on TripAdvisor. It often ranks as one of the country’s most-visited museums and the Frommer’s travel guide refers to it as “hands down, one of the world’s best regional museums.”

And in less than two weeks, almost all of the Royal B.C. Museum’s most signature attractions are being abruptly ripped out in the name of “decolonization.”

The demolition contracts have already been signed. Starting on Jan. 2, crews will start taking crowbars to life-sized dioramas of a Peace River homestead, a salmon cannery, a Vancouver Island coal mine and HMS Discovery, the flagship of British explorer George Vancouver.

Toxic smog in New Delhi way worse than previously thought

One official acknowledged in court that breathing the air in the capital was “like smoking 20 cigarettes a day.”

The Indian Supreme Court has demanded urgent measures to tackle the thick toxic smog that has been covering New Delhi for over a week. It even suggested imposing a brief lockdown. 

“Do you know how bad the situation is? People have to wear masks even at home,” Chief Justice N.V. Ramana said, grilling government officials.  

The court said central and state officials must make “an emergency decision” and present plans to fight the smog on Monday. Ramana suggested that authorities should consider “a two-day lockdown,” among other measures.

You have to look at this issue beyond politics and government. Something must happen so that in two to three days we feel better.

College strips name ‘Linnaeus’ from its 125-acre arboretum, citing ‘scientific racism’

Gustavus Adolphus College argues move builds ‘an inclusive and just community’

Gustavus Adolphus College has removed the name of prominent scientist Carl Linnaeus from the title of its arboretum, citing “scientific racism” as the motivation behind the move.

The college also moved his bust, which had been displayed outside the arboretum’s Melva Lind Interpretive Center since 1988, into storage.

The Board of Trustees at the private college in Minnesota made the final decision to ax the name after pressure from activists, the college announced Oct. 12.

“Gustavus has historically sought to build an inclusive and just community. In recent years, and especially since George Floyd’s murder, we have strengthened our efforts to pay attention to underrepresented voices and discovered how painful Linnaeus’ name and legacy are for some of our students and visitors,” board Chair Scott Anderson said in the announcement.

Remembering what campus cancel culture has purged

At some point, I lost count of how many incidents we’ve documented. Earlier this year, however, we began to compile them systematically — and today The College Fix releases the Campus Cancel Culture Database.

The University of Dallas recently ordered one of its professors to remove the term “China virus” from his syllabus. Muhlenberg College in Pennsylvania deleted 11-year-old photos of its production of the operetta “The Mikado” from its website and apologized for staging it. The University of Texas at San Antonio banned its “come and take it” flag and motto from football games over racism concerns.

Each of these acts of censorship have occurred since the start of the new school year. They provide further proof that cancel culture remains alive and well on our campuses.

As editor of The College Fix for the last nine years, I’ve devoted my journalism to covering these incidents. I work with student reporters who gather facts and tell stories about abuses against free speech as well as religious and academic freedom.

9/11 by Ann Coulter

“The FBI allowed thousands of Americans to be slaughtered on the altar of political correctness.”

In honor of the 20-year marker of the 9/11 attacks, I thought I’d run excerpts from a few of my post-9/11 columns.

One point I politely refrained from making 20 years ago: Why was the president of the United States reading “The Pet Goat” to a class of second-graders at the moment our nation was attacked?

I think the “Attack France” column (Dec. 20, 2001) holds up well, mostly because I’d rather be bringing in hundreds of thousands of Frenchmen right now than hundreds of thousands of Afghans. (Who knew the golden ticket to U.S. citizenship was being the country that hosted Osama bin Laden?)

But that column didn’t make the cut. In 2007, the magnificent Gallic made Nicolas Sarkozy the new president of France, and now we’re friends again.

No Joke: Woke NYC Pol Wannabe Wants Victims of Violent Crime to Help Their Attackers

Caban has what she refers to as a “new vision of public safety for New York City,” which is in her 48-page plan, where she calls for “restorative justice.” Meaning no one goes to jail, and the victims deal with whoever assaulted them to work things out.

What better way to curtail the tsunami of crime in New York City than to make victims of violent crime “help” those who assaulted them?

The woke brigade just took things to another level of cray-cray. NYC Democratic socialist city council wannabe candidate Tiffany Caban believes prison isn’t the place for violent criminals. She wants to replace prisons with programs where victims of violent crime help their attackers, and domestic violence victims are paid not to prosecute their violent partners.
