Not a peep from them. Doesn’t fit the narrative of Trump’s anti-Muslim agenda rant they have on the front burner. However Trump doesn’t have anything of this nature being suggested or mentioned ever.
Migrants are being sold at
open slave markets in Libya
Vulnerable refugees from West Africa often arrive in the country with no money and no papers.
Migrants from West Africa are being openly traded in “public slave markets” across Libya.
As a departure point for refugees trying to get to Europe, migrants arriving in Libya from sub-Saharan are particularly vulnerable due to a lack of money and little in the way of documentation.
Survivors have told the International Organization for Migration (IOM) how there are slave markets and private prisons all over Libya.
Mohammed Abdiker, IOM’s head of operation and emergencies, said: “The situation is dire. The more IOM engages inside Libya, the more we learn that it is a vale of tears for all too many migrants.”
One survivor from Senegal spoke of how he was brought by smugglers across Niger in a bus to the southern Libyan city of Sabha, where he was due to risk a boat trip to Europe. When the middleman did not get his fee, the survivor was put up for sale along with other passengers.
He was taken to a prison where he worked without pay while the captors demanded 300,000 West African francs (about £380) before selling him on to a larger jail. Livia Manante, an IOM officer based in Niger, said migrants would be brought to a square where they were put up for sale.
Manante said: “IOM Italy has confirmed that this story is similar to many stories reported by migrants and collected at landing points in southern Italy, including the slave market reports.”
Those who did not get their ransom paid were often taken away and killed while others would die of hunger and disease in unsanitary conditions.
“If the number of migrants goes down, because of death or someone is ransomed, the kidnappers just go to the market and buy one,” Manente said.
The going rate for a migrant was between $200 (£160) and $500 (£400) each, with many forced into captivity for months before they are freed or sold on. So far this year more than 170 bodies have washed up on the shores of the Mediterranean while the Libyan Coast Guard has also rescued thousands more.
IOM has helped repatriate 1,500 people back to West Africa so far this year where it is trying to inform people not to risk the journey to Libya where they face exploitation.
“Migrants who go to Libya while trying to get to Europe, have no idea of the torture archipelago that awaits them just over the border,” said Leonard Doyle, chief IOM spokesman in Geneva. “There they become commodities to be bought, sold and discarded when they have no more value.”

…and Chick Fil-A provides that space for them too!
Oh, Okay: College Students
Chick-fil-A Would Make
Students at Duquesne University, a Catholic school in Pittsburgh, are raising concerns that an on-campus location of the fast food chain Chick-fil-A could somehow make things “unsafe” for LGBT students of the university. Student government representatives argued that the presence of the Chick-fil-A as a dining option would “marginalize” students and could make them feel as though the food court is no longer a “safe place.”
From Campus Reform:
“Chick-fil-A has a questionable history on civil rights and human rights,” Martini remarked in a statement to The Duquesne Duke. “I think it’s imperative [that] the university chooses to do business with organizations that coincide with the [university’s] mission and expectations they give students regarding diversity and inclusion.”
“I’ve tried very hard within the last semester and a half to promote this safe environment for the LGBTQ community. So I fear that with the Chick-fil-A being in Options [an on-campus food court] that maybe people will feel that safe place is at risk,” Rachel Coury explained, adding that at the very least her organization would like “someone” to “make a statement” on the issue.
“It would be a really big deal for Lambda [Gay-Straight Alliance] and the whole LGBTQ community on campus if someone could make a statement to eliminate the fear of being marginalized by having this business on campus,” she said.
Chick-fil-A has locations on nearly 250 college campuses throughout the country, never mind its near-ubiquitous presence at airports and other public locations. As far as I’m aware, there have not been any anti-gay assaults or crimes at any of these locations (unless one considers the inevitable heart disease triggered by frequent consumption of Chick-fil-A’s fried products to be a slow-moving assault). The company no longer donates to controversial causes. If students at other campuses are able to both enjoy Chick-fil-A’s waffle fries and support their LGBT friends, there’s no reason why Duquesne students can’t either. This whole thing is insane.
Straight people desire safe spaces also; poufers aren’t a special class far from it. It is this disgusting idea that I and millions of others have to accommodate having to eat breakfast while having the stomach to watch some individual who did God know what with his mouth last night eat tapioca pudding or eat bananas.
All this is so crazy since all had a safe space, one very safe: the closet.
This POLITICALLY CORRECT nonsense that certain people are entitles to special treatment because they claim some load of Communist/Marxist crap. That is all that it is!
All it takes to clean up this absurdity is to treat it as rebarbative tripe. Cut the Federal funding to the College Education Fund except for hard science, Western Civics and Friedman Economics. Get rid of the grants and courses that deal in bombast and balderdash. Let those Professors find honest work driving taxis or slinging hash in diners.

Truth be told, we don’t really give a rat’s rear end about the story of the guy dragged off the United flight, but we couldn’t resist the mental image of Barry being dragged down an aisle while kicking, biting, scratching, weeping, and…as long as we’re enjoying our fantasy…wetting himself.
As far as the actual story goes, the details keep changing – but it seems safe to say that the gentleman pulled from the plane had voluntarily entered the “asshole zone” by not leaving his seat without a fight (hint: when people with guns ask you to do something on a plane, it’s a good idea to do it).
And frankly, the only reason that this is a story is because people got video of the last, most colorful moments of the confrontation…and it’s proved to be more interesting on the vast brainless platforms of social media than other current news stories like, oh, impending nuclear war.
We live in strange and frighteningly superficial times.
