The Facebook page for a protest planned in Burlington, Vermont, said: “Come protest the xenophobia, racism, homophobia, misogyny, and climate science denial of the Trump/Pence regime!! Come show your support for our Muslim, queer, immigrant, and female family!!” < Lets have Sharia law – you can have all these in one sentence together?
Just had a very open and successful presidential election. Now professional protesters, incited by the media, are protesting. Very unfair!

The suspect, 32-year-old Minguell Kennedy Lembrick, was still at large and local, state and federal law enforcement officers were searching for him, Scott said.
Scott urged anyone who sees Lembrick to call police but warned, “Do not attempt to approach him. He is armed and dangerous.”
GBI Director Vernon Keenan said his agency and the FBI are offering a $20,000 reward for information leading to Lembrick’s arrest. Later Wednesday, the Peach County Sheriff’s Office, Byron Police Department and Fort Valley Police Department contributed another $10,000 to the fund.
“This is a very dangerous individual. We need to have him off the streets,” Keenan said. “We need him arrested so he can face the courts.”
Shortly after the shootings Wednesday, a message posted on Lembrick’s Facebook page read: “other life gone not going to jail.”
Also posted to Lembrick’s account was a four-second Facebook Live video showing a young man partly concealed by shadows saying, “I’m gonna miss y’all folk, man.” The final message on Lembrick’s page read: “Love yall.”
All three posts had Facebook timestamps between 10:13 a.m. and 10:41 a.m. The video was removed a few hours after it was posted.

Daniel Bonevac, a professor of philosophy at the University of Texas, noted that while the university has a “strong tradition of respectful disagreement,” Trump supporters have chosen to stay quiet because it is so “politically incorrect” to support him.
Milo: Left can’t tolerate anyone who doesn’t agree with them
Feb. 01, 2017 – 17:26 – Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopoulos on the cancellation of his speech at UC-Berkeley after riots broke out, saying the progressive left fears anyone with different political views and he’s shocked at how oppressive higher education US campuses can be http://video.foxnews.com/v/5307438873001/?#sp=show-clips
While Trump said voter fraud won’t be tolerated under his administration, past presidents didn’t make election integrity a priority, said Vaughan. The federal government can help local or state government agencies verify citizenship of registered voters, but the Obama administration blocked state and local governments from using the federal verification system, Vaughan said.
The advocacy group Open Doors USA recently released the latest edition of its annual World Watch List, which ranks countries based on the treatment of their Christian populations. The group said the increase in incidents considered persecution was alarming and only getting worse.
“It is appalling that Open Doors has to report that persecution has increased again in 2016 and we are still at the worst levels of persecution in modern times,” David Curry, president and CEO of Open Doors USA, said to Fox News. “The spread of persecution has gotten worse, now hitting nearly every continent in the world. There were 23 Christians killed in Mexico specifically because of their faith.”
A planned talk at the University of California-Berkeley by polarizing Breitbart News editor Milo Yiannopoulos was canceled Wednesday evening after protesters threw smoke bombs and flares at the student union building where he was scheduled to speak.
“Violent left-wing protesters stormed the building and forced me to be evacuated by police and by my security detail,” Yiannopoulos told Fox News’ Tucker Carlson in a phone interview from an undisclosed location.
Yiannopoulos, 32, is a vocal supporter of President Donald Trump and a self-proclaimed internet troll whose comments have been criticized as racist, misogynist, anti-Muslim and white supremacist.
The decision to cancel was made two hours before the start of the event because a crowd of more than 1,500 people had gathered outside the venue, the university said in a statement.
“We condemn in the strongest possible terms the violence and unlawful behavior that was on display, and deeply regret that those tactics will now overshadow the efforts to engage in legitimate and lawful protest against the performer’s presence and perspectives,” the statement read, in part.Hundreds of peaceful demonstrators carrying signs that read “Hate Speech Is Not Free Speech” had been protesting for hours before the event.UC Berkeley was to have been Yiannopoulos’ last stop on his tour aimed at defying what he calls an epidemic of political correctness on college campuses. “he gives a voice to repressed conservative thought on American college campuses.” He uses “levity and humor” that should not be taken literally, Sittler said.
Republicans now hold sway on Capitol Hill, but on college campuses across the country many conservatives say they are increasingly under threat and being shut out of the political dialogue – with tensions only escalating as President Trump unveils controversial measures.
Allison Coukos, director of public relations for the George Washington College Republicans and a junior majoring in political science, told Fox News that after the president signed a slew of executive orders last week, the political tension on campus intensified. She said the hostility toward her group became so extreme that this week it sent out an open invitation to everyone on campus to join them in a “friendly discussion.”
While it is nothing new for Republicans to feel alienated on typically liberal-minded campuses, Trump’s election has seemingly ushered in a new level of enmity for conservative students and professors. Coukos said she has basically had to stop discussing politics altogether.
“I’m honestly surprised it took [Denham] this long to do this,” The College Fix’s source said. “…There is a real problem with the fetishization of violence in the rad-left movement at large, which needs to be solved.”
Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopoulos said Wednesday that the riot that canceled his planned speech at the University of California-Berkeley was “heavily ironic and very, I think, self-defeating for the social justice left.”
Yiannopoulos’ planned talk was scrapped after violent protesters hurled smoke bombs, broke windows and started a bonfire outside the student union where he was to appear.
“No one’s safety is at risk from different opinions,” Yiannopoulos told “Tucker Carlson Tonight” in a phone interivew. “No one’s physical safety is endangered by political ideas from a speaker on campus, but universities have sort of allowed this stuff to happen, and even in some cases encouraged it.”
The Berkeley appearance was to be the 32-year-old’s last stop on a nationwide college tour that has sparked protests and occasional violence. Yiannopoulos told Carlson that he believes the protesters view him as a proxy for President Donald Trump, whom he vocally supports.
“I annoy the feminists and the Black Lives Matter guys probably almost as much as Trump does, certainly on college campuses,” Yiannopoulos said. “So, they go for the next best thing. They go for … the person they think they can scare. Well, they don’t scare me. I will continue to give college talks until the day I drop dead.”
Yiannopoulos has made remarks in the past that have been criticized as racist, misogynist, and anti-Muslim.
Of his opponents, Milo said, “They never want to debate because they’re scared of losing. They don’t have the facts on their side and for 30 years the left has been able to bully people into silence by name-calling and they’ve forgotten how to argue.”
