According to Albert, she was pulled aside by aggressive TSA agents for a full-body pat-down, much like Aaron’s, because they spotted a tube of medical cream stashed in her carry-on bag.” Read more here.

“This column provides the background of Professor Areeje Zufari, a Professor of Humanities and Coordinator of the Humanities Speakers Series at Valencia College located in Orlando, Florida. Zufari gained attention when she told her students “that the crucifixion of Jesus was a hoax and that his disciples did not believe he was ‘divine.”
According to Jacob Engels from the Central Florida Post: “On Saturday, the Central Florida Post reported on the suspension of Rollins College student Marshall Polston, who clashed with Professor Zufari over radical hate speech uttered by another student during class.”
“Polston reached out and demanded an explanation from the professor, but she instead reported him to the Dean of Safety for making her feel “unsafe.”
The straight-A student would ultimately be suspended on March 24th and then face outlandish allegations by Zufari, later that day.
She accused him of skulking around in the brush outside the classroom, but video surveillance from a Dr. Phillips restaurant and neighborhood gate cameras prove Polston was nowhere near the school at the time.” Read more here.
