More intolerance from the people who preach tolerance

Just came across this gem from the University of Texas down in Austin.  Please check this out:     

The Autonomous Student Network in Austin, Texas, a group that was previously suspended from Twitter after posting private information belonging to supporters of then-Supreme Court Justice nominee Brett Kavanaugh, is now threatening to do the same to incoming University of Texas-Austin freshmen who join conservative student organizations. 

"Hey #UT23! Do you wanna be famous? If you join YCT [Young Conservatives of Texas] or Turning Point USA, you just might be. Your name and more could end up on an article like one of these," the group tweeted earlier in June, linking to a page on its website, on which it previously posted the private information, including emails and phone numbers, of Kavanaugh supporters.

"So be sure to make smart choices at #UTOrientation," the group added. 

Yes make a smart choice and avoid those young conservatives.  Come to us and we'll teach how to hate the country, the flag, and bring down every statue of a white male European.

To their credit, the university heard about it and came down hard on the threats.  Good for them.

The larger point is that these leftist groups define diversity as agreeing with them. They do not tolerate dissent and will destroy your reputation if they can get away it.

The great Churchill fell in love with Cuban cigars in 1895





We remember Winston Churchill was born on this day in 1874.  He passed away in 1965 at age 90.  
Churchill loved Cuban cigars.  We know now that he met his first Cuban cigar during a visit to the island circa 1895.  My late father once told me that the Cuban embassy in London would often deliver Mr. Churchill a complimentary box of cigars.  Furthermore, those long cigars came to be known as “Churchill”.
According to H.P. Klepak, author of “Churchill Comes of Age, Cuba 1895“, the young Churchill spent 18 days in Cuba. 
He was there on loan from the British army to observe colonial Spain’s defense against independence fighters, as Klepak said in an interview
History previously recorded that Churchill saw combat in Cuba and discovered the siesta, which would later help him keep long hours as British prime minister during World War Two.
But Klepak, a former Canadian military officer, argues previous works overlooked how influential the Cuban venture was, including the months of maneuvering Churchill needed to land his assignment.   
With his Cuba experience he became a war correspondent, political analyst, strategist and liaison with a foreign army, all for the first time. His writings start to show legendary humor. He discovers rum and Cuban cigars’ breadth and quality.
Inspired by observations from local historian Lourdes Mendez, Klepak believes he became the first to scrutinize and cross-check the Cuban, British and Spanish archives, discovering for example that Churchill was fired upon by no less than Antonio Maceo and Maximo Gomez, two of Cuba’s greatest independence leaders.
“Very quickly when I looked at it from a historical perspective it was pretty obvious that this was an amazing story which for some reason had never been told,” Klepak said.
Neat story.  This is also a book that you may want to pick up when you need a break from Speaker Pelosi.  It is another chapter in the amazing life of one of the most important figures of the 20th century.
