The W.T.F. Stories of the Day

The first one comes from the nearby City of Brotherly Love where its idiot mayor, Michael Nutter, was mulling over what the idiot New York mayor, Michael Bloomberg, did -- ban sodas over 16 ounces. But Nutter was doing this ... while cutting the ribbon at Philadelphia’s first Shake Shack, "a fast food restaurant that has gained cult status for its burgers, fries and frozen custards."

You can't make this sh** up, I tell 'ya.

The second story comes by way of my buddy Greg at Rhymes With Right:

A Marine veteran and Academy Award winning film producer said he was barred from speaking to a U.S. government class at a Montana high school because he was “a right-wing conservative.”

Gerald Molen, who won an Oscar for co-producing Schindler’s List, had been invited to speak to a class of seniors at Ronan High School in Montana. He’s also one of the few conservatives working in Hollywood and is currently making a documentary based on Dinesh D’Souza’s book, The Roots of Obama’s Rage.

Molen, who is a popular motivational speaker, said his speech was going to be apolitical. He had planned on reminding students of their individual greatness and opportunities for the future.

But when he showed up at the high school — about 90-minutes from his home in Bigfork, Mont. – the principal informed Molen that he would not be allowed to address students because he was a “right-wing conservative.” He was told that there had been some calls to the school complaining about the planned speech.

“He said some callers didn’t want kids exposed to that, despite not knowing what my message would be,” he told the Hollywood Reporter."

Got that? They didn't even know what Molen was going to talk about -- and they still wanted him banned.

Greg wants the principal and any district administrator who advised him to nix Molen fired. Be sure to stop over there and find out why.

This happens here and there on college campuses as well. Yet the left will insist they offer diverse POVs. Anyone remotely thought of as anti-Muslim will never be given an audience, yet CAIR and the likes of the Ahmadinejad get the red carpet.
