I blame it on liberal professors who are more interested in indoctrinating students than educating them.

Great, but you’ll need confirmation it arrives. Did you notice Stanford University have come out strongly to support him and 250 delegates and lecturers on on the Draper Hills Summer Fellows program have signed.

Larry Diamond , the Director, will send letters to King Hamed, Minister of Interior and Minister of “Justice” and Islamic Affairs and US Ambassador.

We are trying to get wider support from US and U.K. universities including Hull and Kent who have sites in Bahrain. Putting pressure on Dept of Interior to settle the hunger strike and get him medical care and even release, Janet Salmon

Comment on The power of satirical comedy in Zimbabwe by Tha M.I.N.D https://www.indexoncensorship.org/2015/07/magazine-power-satirical-comedy-zimbabwe/#comment-2371647 Sat, 08 Aug 2015 15:59:59 +0000 https://www.indexoncensorship.org/?p=67441#comment-2371647 I’m a Zim-based artiste and have gained quite some attention in the streets. Yes, in the streets, coz the radio is run by some tyrants who will not tolerate ANY form of resistance. And since my music is more based on political TRUTH rather than support of ‘some sh!tty party’, I believe my success will forever be limited within streets’ boundaries. Zimbos ain’t free yet, just that we are now colonies of our own color.

Comment on Salil Tripathi: As Singapore turns 50, is it on the cusp of becoming different? by Noname2 https://www.indexoncensorship.org/2015/07/salil-tripathi-as-singapore-turns-50-is-it-at-the-cusp-becoming-different/#comment-2371638 Sun, 02 Aug 2015 04:05:43 +0000 https://www.indexoncensorship.org/?p=68165#comment-2371638 A very nice article.

I am quite supportive of the current system and yes the markers will change.

Looks like noname is offended by others feeling offended. And his self-worth increased because he feels righteous in his indignation.

Apparently, by being a bigger brat and bully. It has been the most internationally embarrassing fiasco both for Singapore and Singaporeans.

There is a stark lack of tolerance in the society. Everyday now, in Singapore, we are bound to witness Singaporeans taking offence to someone or trying to show the incompetence, carelessness, inadequacy or just an honest mistake of another. It has become a way of life. Many seek gratification and self-worth through being offended. Something is terribly wrong somewhere. It is definitely not a happy 50th.
