Probably a troll, but seems to have been taken seriously there., e. g.:
The millennial snowflakes among us are really starting to become frustrated when people call them snowflakes.
At some universities within the U.K., the United States and elsewhere, students are creating lists of “trigger words” (also known as words that they feel are hateful or even remotely offensive) and demanding that they be removed from books in university libraries.
Back in 2015, The College Fix reported that professors and faculty members at the University of California have been instructed not to say certain phrases like “America is the land of opportunity,” “There is only one race, the human race,” and “I believe the most qualified person should get the job,” among other things that were included on a long list of so-called microaggressions.
Other phrases that are unacceptable include “Everyone in this society can succeed if they work hard enough,” “Where are you from or where were you born?” “Affirmative action is racist,” and “When I look at you, I don’t see color.” Obviously, this whole push by millennials and the educators who sympathize with them to ban words that may come across as “microaggressions” or “offensive” has gone too far.
I know that out among the Unwashed Masses (as Doctor X might say) political groups stereotype each other--conservatives are racist, liberals are triggered snowflakes, etc.
Why are you playing that game here? I would think you know better.

I'll wait until I see the story in The College Fix at least, because at this point it isn't even real fake news.
In short: If you cite NaturalNews on any matter whatsoever, you are almost certainly wrong.

3. I was wrong about the torture, being a reaction to our torture, (and deserving of some of Dr. X's abuse).
Dr. X never abuses people. And Bill O'Reilly never calls anyone names.4. I still think our torturing them is a really BAD idea.
True. It just helps keep a cycle of violence going.
Thanks for clarifying your position. It would help if you did that with your opening posts on a topic, instead of just posting links and pieces of news reports. Although I sympathize with your distaste for this administration, it is sometimes difficult to discern what you are trying to say with your posts other than "Bush sucks" (that's my job to say that, anyway).
