A 21-year-old Ann Arbor woman pleaded guilty as charged to one count of false report of a misdemeanor in 15th District Court on Monday, March 6.
Halley Bass admitted in court that she fabricated a story about a strange man scratching her face in downtown Ann Arbor on Nov. 15.
Bass admitted to scratching her own face with the pin after becoming upset during a Woman’s Literature class at the University of Michigan, according to the Ann Arbor Police Department report.
Bass posted about the attack on Facebook the same day she reported the attack to the police, according to the report.
Bass later told detectives she wrote the post to convey “that all people are equal and deserve to have their voice heard and not feel endangered.”
The “Knights for Socialism” group at the University of Central Florida (UCF) held a workshop Sunday to teach left-wing students how to “BASH THE FASH” with a “Leftist Fight Club” open to everyone but Republicans.
“In response to the record number of hate crimes against Latinxs, Immigrants, Muslims, Women, the LGBTQIA+ community, Jews, African Americans and other minorities since the rise of Donald Trump and other Alt-Right Neo-Nazis (#FakeNews – Ed), Knights for Socialism has decided to host a series of self-defense clinics for anyone that wants to learn how to BASH THE FASH,” asserts the Facebook event page for “Leftist Fight Club: The Rumbles at Lake Claire.”
“This event is open to everyone and anyone, EXCEPT REPUBLICANS.”
You gotta wonder at what point normal people become ashamed to be leftists.
Leftists at the University of California at Berkeley did not like the words that Milo Yiannopoulos had come to their campus to say. So, they smashed property and set things on fire.
The Berkeley Police Department said people threw bricks, smoking objects, and fireworks at police officers. University police locked down all buildings and ordered a shelter in place, and later fired rubber pellets into the crowd of protesters who defied orders to leave the area.
“This is what tolerance looks like at UC Berkeley,” said Mike Wright, a Berkeley College Republican member said as smoke bombs went off around him. Someone threw red paint on him. “It’s sad.”
As protesters yelled obscenities at police, others toppled a generator and light pole police had set up, spray painting “Milo” with an x through it. Later on, they lit it on fire, gas spilling with abandon as the growing flames licked a nearby tree on the side of the building.
From their backpacks, they hurled dozens of fireworks — some screaming past others in the crowd — as Berkeley’s usually peaceful protesters vented their frustration. The more peaceful had carried signs, “We reject a fascist America,” and derided Yiannopoulos as a mouthpiece for President Trump.
With each day that passes, it becomes harder for anyone to defend the Democratic (Socialist) Left as a non-violent movement. Although it’s cute the way the reporter tries to distinguish between the violent and “peaceful” protesters… as though they are not on the same team with the same goal (and the same hateful intolerance).
Your Left at work:
The idiot made a detailed death threat against President-Elect Trump, on social media.
He was then surprised that it got out to society. You know, surprised that people on social media would be social with it.
He tried to plead that it was a joke, that it was alcohol-fueled, and that it was only meant to be private (i.e., he’s sorry he got caught). But those excuses didn’t stop his getting some death threats in return.
Surely those threats were also jokes, alcohol-fueled, and only meant to be private. Even so, when it was done to him, he was shocked – and for some reason he felt a need to go into hiding.
His former company, to its good credit, has gotten rid of him. And he has apologized; God bless him, for that. Hat tip HotAir.
UPDATE: Your Left at work, again. The Left’s New Hot Meme has arrived. Lefties will be labelling all news/opinion sites that dare challenge them as “Fake News”.
We can foresee what comes after: The Left will eventually get its “Fake News”-labelled sites to be banned or boycotted by Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, CNN.com, and so on. In this way, the Left will once again control all discussions and get the peasants to conform. Google has started going there.
UPDATE – Climate of Hate: Daisy Luther on how Obama, Clinton, and Sanders Could Stop the Riots But They Just Watch.
The Movement to Abolish Police Departments is moving into the mainstream of the left. Left-wing activists want police defunded to pay for more Free Sh-t.
IMHO, the cops should take them up on their offer; declare parts of major cities “Police-Free Zones” and focus their efforts on protecting people who want police protection while leaving the other areas under the control of “Community Systems of Justice” or whatever. They could even release all those “non-violent offenders” into the PFZ’s where they would assuredly be welcome.
“Our mandate, in this time, is to avenge the suffering of our ancestors.”
Apparently, this means voting for the party that fought for Jim Crow and slavery.
In August, an 18-year-old gay man alleged that members of the Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity at the University of North Dakota threw him out of a party because he is gay. The man, Haakon Gisvold, also claimed that Lambda Chi members beat him, choked him, stripped him and robbed him — all while shouting anti-gay insults. He said he hid in some bush wearing only his underwear until some kind soul came along with some clothes. “I just want those guys to learn from this,” Gisvold said at the time, according to a comically naive Huffington Post story. After an investigation that included identifying 150 possible witnesses, investigators concluded that exactly zero evidence exists to support any of Gisvold’s hate-crime allegations. In reality, a frat member explained, Gisvold became belligerent because he was asked to leave. Investigators asked the county prosecutor to file a criminal charge against Gisvold for providing false information to police. (RELATED: SURPRISE! Another ‘Anti-Gay’ Hate Crime Turns Out To Be A Big Hoax)
Contra the New York Times and Democrat politicians who want to ban “Multi-Automatic Round Weapons”
“I stand behind you in line at the store with a smile on my face…and a gun under my shirt and you are none the wiser. Yet you are safer for having me next to you. I won’t shoot you. My gun won’t pull its own trigger, it is securely holstered with the trigger covered — it can’t just “go off”. However, rest assured that if a lunatic walks into our grocery store, our movie theater, or our gas station and pulls out a rifle with intent to do us harm, I will draw my pistol and protect myself and my family and therefore protect you and your family. I may freeze up, I may get shot before I can pull the trigger, but I won’t die in a helpless blubbering heap on the floor begging for my life or my child’s life. I will not be THAT victim. I have made that choice.
As for you, I don’t ask you to carry a gun nor will I ever advocate for the government to force you to do so — therefore, if you are not comfortable, please don’t, but I would like to keep my right to choose to not be a helpless victim so stop voting for politicians who wish to take that RIGHT away from me.” – Utah Gun Exchange (via Farcebook)
The lawyer for a gay man who either fell or jumped overboard from a cruise ship and died says either way that cruise line is responsible because homophobia.
Winkleman said it was Royal Caribbean crew members who instigated the situation.
“Throughout the cruise, there were anti-gay remarks crew members were making against them,” said Winkleman.
Because the staff of cruise ships are renowned for their intolerance of gay people and predilection toward antagonizing customers.
Speaking of phony victimhood, the blacktivist at the University of Missouri who went on a “hunger strike” to protest the intolerable condition of his oppression is from a family worth $20 Million.
I voted for Barack Obama. Twice. During his 2008 presidential campaign, my two daughters, partner, and I ate every meal in our house on Obama placemats…
As Obama’s 2012 campaign approached, I did not waver. I dug into our old dining room cupboards, and found our worn but resilient Obama placements. I dusted them off, and once again, my family and I ate all of our meals looking at his image.
Firearm possession should be banned in America; President Obama can orchestrate this directive. … To establish gun control laws in America that will reduce high levels of male violence and usher in a culture of peace and civility.
Barack Obama is the president of the United States. He can change the country. He can do it today. I believe in him.
Barbara LeSavoy is director of Women and Gender Studies at The College at Brockport.

Update: Rebuttal/Fisk at the Liberty Zone:
Apparently, to become Director of Women and Gender Studies at The College at Brockport (Translation: teach women to snivel, whine, and blame men for their lot in life) you only need to be a dried up hipster hag and be uniquely uninformed about anything having to do with BADTHINK, such as guns, for instance. Barbara LeSavoy is just that – an endless fount of stupid in a world where stupid is pretty damn common!
Y’know who else shares this mentality? Hillary Clinton, who recently told a supporter she thinks Australian-style gun confiscation was a pretty neat idea.
One of Mattress Girl Emma Sulkowicz’s dippy feminist friends has also accused the guy she accused of rape of rape.
The incident happened my junior year at Columbia, when Paul followed me upstairs at a party, came into a room with me uninvited, closed the door behind us, and grabbed me. I politely said, “Hey, no, come on, let’s go back downstairs.” He didn’t listen. He held me close to him as I said no, and continued to pull me against him. I pushed him off and left the room quickly.
That ain’t rape toots.
In a more civilized era, when women were strong and not delicate little snowflakes totally incapable of dealing with any adversity, a woman would have slapped the guy across the face and gotten on with her life.
Oh, also a dude friend of hers claimed the guy tried to “rape” him in a similar manner; and later further degraded him by… I am not making this up… “complimenting some points [the alleged victim] had made in a class discussion.”
WTF is wrong with these people.
One of the women, whose name was redacted to protect her privacy, listed 88 symptoms as grounds for compensation. The other, whose name was also redacted, listed 90.
Examples of symptoms include “acute loss of confidence,” “doubt,” “excessive sleep,” “felt mentally raped, dirty and shameful,” “high blood pressure,” “impaired digestion,” “loss of appetite,” “migraine headaches,” “pale and sick at home after work,” “resumption of smoking habit,” “shock” “stunned,” “surprise,” “uncertainty,” “weight gain” and “worry.”
And you, as the victim of such an unimaginable atrocity, are entitled to use the Power of the State to destroy the life of the person who declined to participate in your lesbian wedding.
So, just as anything a terrorist complains about is now “torture,” so is anything a woman complains about “rape.”
I didn’t think I could feel any more contempt for the wedding cake fascists than I already did. I was wrong.
1. She gets vengeance at the guy who didn’t reciprocate her feelings for him.
2. The university administration collaborates with her to destroy the guy’s life.
3. She becomes a heroine to the Leftist Establishment for promoting their narrative of “Rape Culture.”
4. Even when the allegations are proven false, she suffers absolutely no adverse consequences for lying and slandering an innocent man.
Pretty powerful incentives to induce women to lie about rape, right?
I’m going to go out on a limb here and predict that the person who did this will turn out to be either a racial minority or a white, left-wing SJW.
According to NBC Connecticut, Connecticut College administrators were notified Sunday afternoon of the phrase “no n*****s” sprawled in a student center bathroom. By Sunday evening, school officials said the graffiti had been removed, and the school would remain closed on Monday while an investigation is underway.
“We must take action immediately to expose and eradicate this ignorance and hatred. I have decided to cancel tomorrow’s classes to ensure these events receive the proper attention.” Tweet This
“We must take action immediately to expose and eradicate this ignorance and hatred,” Connecticut College President Katherine Bergeron said in an email to all students Sunday evening. “I have decided to cancel tomorrow’s classes to ensure these events receive the proper attention.”
Iowa Senator Joni Ernst provided the Republican response to the Emperor’s State of the Empire address. (In case you didn’t watch, it was apparently two straight hours of the Emperor promising more Free [Stuff] from the Government punctuated with episodes of arrogant “I won” gloating.) The Democrat left saw this as an occasion to spew hate, as they view pretty much all occasions.
Leading the pack were the mean girls of MSDNC, like Alex Wagner and Ronan Farrow.
Joni Ernst delivering response in the style of an in-flight safety video.
And then a chorus of “tolerant” Democrats joined in, many of whom used the same anatomical reference to refer to Senator Ernst as Bill Maher uses to refer to Sarah Palin (“See You Next Tuesday”).
Other Democrats hauled out the tired “Stepford Wives” cliche, because nothing says hip like referencing a movie made in 1975, just like nothing says “We respect women,” like cheap insults based on their ladyparts.
The New York Times is very, very upset that the NYPD is demonstrating their displeasure with Mayor Bill deBlasio … who has attacked the NYPD as racist and openly sided with the protesters who’ve been chanting “What do we want? Dead Cops!”
When he spoke at a police graduation ceremony at Madison Square Garden on Monday, some in the crowd booed and heckled him. This followed the mass back-turning by scores of officers when the mayor spoke on Saturday at the funeral of Officer Rafael Ramos; the virtual back-turning the day before by an airplane-towed banner (“Our backs have turned to you”), and the original spiteful gesture by officers on the night Mr. de Blasio visited the hospital where Officer Ramos and his partner, Wenjian Liu, lay dead.
Mr. de Blasio isn’t going to say it, but somebody has to: With these acts of passive-aggressive contempt and self-pity, many New York police officers, led by their union, are squandering the department’s credibility, defacing its reputation, shredding its hard-earned respect.
Note who the NYTimes is not condemning: The protesters who’ve been chanting “What do we want? Dead Cops!”
As for Mayor deBlasio, I am sure he envies the unquestioned power and authority the Communist Sandinistas … whom he went down to Nicaragua to support back in the eighties… and the Castro Communists in Cuba … where he went for his honeymoon… exerted over their proletariat.
Rejecting the reality of LGBT identities is a form of genocide, an attempt to erase whole communities. Unfortunately, sometimes it works.

In Progressive-Occupied Massachusetts, two high school students have been suspended and face expulsion… for posing for a picture with Airsoft guns in a private home away from school.
Two high school students from Bristol Plymouth Regional Technical School were suspended for 10 days after posing for a picture holding rifles that shoot plastic pellets, according to multiple reports.
A professor at the University of Iowa has a sad because the visiting team’s locker room is painted pink; which somehow encourages homophobia, I guess.
It’s as if the university has sided with the jocks who used to beat up the ‘queers’ in high school,” the march’s website states. “Does a pink locker room directly lead to violence against women and gay people? No. But it does reinforce the repeated narratives about being a man that kids are exposed to from a very young age—which creates subtle and harmful ripple effect.”
You know what else has a harmful ripple effect? Moonbat libs making big deals out of nothin’ to get attention for themselves.
In what appears to be a prank, someone put up signs in a park in Columbus OH announcing a “Straight White Guy Festival.” And, naturally, some bitter leftists grievance queens got their knickers in a twist about it.
“This kind of thing implies there’s some kind of struggle going on for being a straight white person in Ohio. Straight white people are doing just fine,” said Michael Premo.
Premo heads an organization pushing same-sex marriage. He says the flyer is not productive.
“I think it detracts from the real problems of Ohio that need to be solved, that are being denied their constitutional rights because of who they are, or who the love. And that’s what we really need to work on and this is just kind of a distraction.”
A very progressive woman traveled to Haiti to prove she was “down with the struggle,” and ended up getting raped by Haitian man who was unimpressed by her pleas for comradeship against the capitalist oppressors.
“I pleaded with him to honor my commitment to Haiti, to him as a brother in the mutual struggle for an end to our common oppression, but to no avail. He didn’t care.”
She probably doesn’t want to hear this, but if a woman wants to deter a rapist, a loaded Glock is probably going to be more effective than left-wing rhetorical pablum.
Then, after it was over, she blamed … not the savage who raped her ... but the White Male Patriarchy.
Women are not the source of their oppression; oppressive policies and the as-yet unaddressed white patriarchy which still dominates the global stage are,” she explained.
That’s a novel defense. “I didn’t rape you, it was the as-yet unaddressed white patriarchy which still dominates the global stage.” Would this defense work for murder? Aaron Hernandez’s defense team would very much like to know.
I have heard it said that liberalism is a mental disorder, and I am not sure that’s true. But it does seem like mentally disordered people tend to become liberals.
