Feb 20, 2024 ~ Spencer Lindquist finds universities are still creating and requiring toxic, racist DIE #CRT and woke gender theory classes. Like 'Decolonial Queerness', 'Gender Archaeolxgy', 'Interrogating Whiteness: Privilege, Racism, and Anti-Racism', 'Anti-Colonial Theory and Practice.'
Feb 20, 2024 ~ "‘All Hell Broke Lose’: Harvard Economist Needed ‘Armed Guard’ After Study Found No Racial Bias In Police Shootings" Roland Fryer, The youngest tenured black professor in Harvard history "needed armed security with him to go out in public [for more than a month] after he published a study finding no evidence of racial bias in officer-involved shootings." Typical of the left which gets violent when their narratives are challenged. Fryer expected to find a different result after Michael Brown, not realizing that narrative was BS. He RE-DID the study to make sure when it didn't match the narrative. Fryer was placed on a 2 year leave by then dean Claudine Gay. Gay went on to become Harvard president but resigned due to scandals involving anti-semitism and plagiarism. @bariweiss asked, "Do you believe in karma?"
Feb 10, 2024 ~ UC San Francisco @UCSF invited Dante King to give a talk on “Diagnosing Whiteness.” He says “whites are psychopaths” and discusses the “delusion and perversion of whiteness.” He said "anti-blackness" is "the foundation of all white American institutions." "I think whites are psychopathic. The level of lying that white people do, that has started since colonialism." These kind of virulent racists are still invited to speak at universities as long as their racism is directed at the right race.
Jan 14, 2024 ~ John Sexton, 'NY Times: SATs Aren't Racist and Universities Should Use Them' SAT "scores were better than high school grades at predicting student success in the system’s nine colleges, where more than 230,000 undergraduates are enrolled. The relative advantage of test scores has grown over time, the committee found. 'Test scores have vastly more predictive power than is commonly understood in the popular debate,' said John Friedman, an economics professor at Brown and one of the authors of the Ivy Plus admissions study." The real reason so many universities have ditched the test is to allow them to discriminate on race and avoid revealing how much they are doing so. But now they no longer have the ability to find the best students even within demographics, making their diplomas even more worthless and untrustworthy than they have been. Jan 4, 2024 ~ Claudine Gay has resigned as president of Harvard after even more examples of plagiarism were uncovered (now near 50). Gay was under previous pressure to resign after refusing to say it violated Harvard's code of conduct to call for the genocide of Jews. Even though she survived longer than she would have under these circumstances had she been anything other than a black woman, the #FakeNews and all of the usual race hustlers popped up to gaslight us about her firing being due to 'racism.' 'Racist mobs' bla bla 'white supremacists' bla bla 'fascists' bla bla 'racism' bla bla 'anti-Blackness' bla bla 'Jim Crow' bla bla 'subjugated by whiteness' bla bla 'white supremacy and racists' bla bla 'bad faith bigots.' etc. Gay herself said the criticism was "fueled by racial animus." Literally the same thing happened to a white woman (Liz Magill) who did not even have the plagiarism issue, but when it happens to a black woman, it's 'racism.' Its obvious to everyone that any results or behavior must be accepted from black people or the left will cry 'racism.' I.e. racism is now defined as holding black people to the same standards as every other group of people.
Jan 4, 2024 ~ Flashback Oct 2022: Chris Brunet: “I can’t stress enough how much of a tragedy a Claudine Gay presidency would be — this must not be allowed to come to pass. She will ruin Harvard. She’s an intellectual lightweight (her entire body of critical race theory ‘research’ is flawed and/or fake), a far-far-Left DEI activist, and corrupt as hell.” H/T @MattWalshBlog
Dec 24, 2023 ~ Rochelle Hoffman was forced to resign as head of the diversity office at the University of Wisconsin because she is white. Several students AND FACULTY complained, saying someone with white skin should not have that job. So they fired her. Hoffman is suing for “psychological injury, emotional distress, loss of reputation, career damage, and attorney fees and costs.”
Dec 24, 2023 ~ Black Columbia professor John McWhorter says Harvard President Claudine Gay should resign: "It has always been inconvenient that Harvard’s first Black president has only published 11 academic articles in her career and not one book (other than one with three co-editors). Some of her predecessors, like Lawrence Bacow, Drew Gilpin Faust and Lawrence Summers, have had vastly more voluminous academic records. The discrepancy gives the appearance that Dr. Gay was not chosen because of her academic or scholarly qualifications, which Harvard is thought to prize, but rather because of her race... If the issue were a couple of hastily quoted phrases in one article, it would be one thing. But investigations have shown that this problem runs through about half of Dr. Gay’s articles, as well as her dissertation. We must ask how a university president can expect to hold her head high, carry authority and inspire respect as a leader on a campus where students suffer grave consequences for doing even a fraction of what Dr. Gay has done."
Dec 16, 2023 ~ Biological male Tate Drageset has been dominating girl's volleyball in high school. He won national titles with USA Volleyball teams in different age groups, earning MVP honors at the Girls Junior National Championships, and was named the California Interscholastic Federation’s Division 5 Player of the Year for 2022-23. Now he is getting a scholarship to play on the women's team at @UW, taking a spot from a woman.
Dec 16, 2023 ~ Biological male Sadie Schreiner sets the women's school record at Rochester Institute of Technology in the 300m run. Not only did he win the race, stealing victory from women, its yet another female record that will almost certainly never be held by a female again. Disgraceful.
Dec 16, 2023 ~ Harvard President Claudine Gay is the definition of a black DIE diversity hire. She did the same thing Liz Magill of Penn did (refused to say calls for genocide against Jews is harassment) plus multiple instances of plagiarism. Magill who is white loses her job but Gay keeps hers because black people are held to a lower standard. Compare her also to former Harvard President Larry Summers. Summers, a white economist with no plagiarism lost his job for suggesting there might be brain differences between men and women. Summers published six books and well over 100 academic articles. Gay published only 11 in a far less rigorous field, some of which were plagiarized. Black scholar Carol Swain was brutally honest: “What is bothering me is not just that there’s passages she didn’t put in quotation marks. When I look at her work, I feel like her whole research agenda, her whole career, was based on my work. She became president of Harvard and got recognition as being its first black president. I don’t believe her record warranted tenure, and I believe that I had to meet a much higher standard than she did. … It’s clear to me that standards were lowered in the mid-1990s, and the elites came together and decided that they were going to defend affirmative action. It’s clear to me that she was a beneficiary of that. I blame her committee, and I blame white progressives equally.” "A white male would probably already be gone," Swain noted. No matter, she still stays. As Harvard’s first black president, she becomes essentially untouchable. Whatever she does is by definition, ‘awesome’ and ‘brilliant.’ Fake historian of the #FakeNews New York Times said questioning her qualifications even after plagiarism evidence is 'racist.' Of course it is...
Dec 11, 2023 ~ Victor Davis Hanson, 'How Were the Universities Lost?' In response to Israel being attacked by murdering, raping, beheading terrorists, "not a day goes by when a university professor or student group has not spouted antisemitic hatred. Often, they threaten and attack Jewish students, or engage in mass demonstrations calling for the extinction of Israel." How did this happen? They went all in on DIE after a BS 'systemic racism' narrative in response to George Floyd. They divided the student body into 'oppressors' and 'oppressed.' They dropped SATs and all other standards of merit greatly decreasing the collective IQ of people on campus while simultaneously branding Jews as 'privileged' along with whites. They increased the number of foreign students including from antisemitic middle eastern countries.
Dec 9, 2023 ~ The presidents of @Harvard, @Penn and @MIT
(Claudine Gay, Liz Magill and Sally Kornbluth) were all asked the following question under oath at the congressional hearing on antisemitism: "Does calling for the genocide of Jews violate [your university’s] code of conduct or rules regarding bullying or harassment?" NOT ONE OF THEM would give a simple 'yes' answer. They all said it 'depended on context!' WTF? Magill insanely said that “If the speech turns into conduct, it can be harassment.” WHAT? Speech calling for genocide is only harassment at Penn if it turns into actual genocidal conduct?? Be very careful where you hire employees from and where you send your kids for an 'education' because many of these previously top schools have become toxic cesspools of hate and antisemitism.
Nov 9, 2023 ~ Jonathan Barth, 'New Report Uncovers The Sad State Of History Classes At American Universities'
"Many of the syllabi examined for this study were nakedly political. Most syllabi intensively focused on identity topics of race, gender, sexuality, queer theory, and militant social protest. The predominant takeaway for students in many of these classes was American history as a history of exclusion, chiefly organized around identity.
Neglected topics included basic political history, including various presidential administrations, pivotal elections, and party development. Legal history was generally excluded, as was military history and diplomatic history. Conservatism, of course, was almost universally framed in a negative context. Primary readings from conservative thinkers were rarely assigned.
Absent, also, was any indication that the United States had made real and significant progress on civil rights and race relations in the 20th century. Moreover, there was rarely any indication that the average standard of living, for all people, increased substantially across the twentieth century (better housing, health, education, and technology); instead, students were often fed an anti-market, anti-consumerist narrative about the corrupting effects of capitalism. Social, economic, and technological advancements received virtually no mention; instead, post-World War II America was often portrayed as a period – not of prosperity and expanding freedom – but of greed, decline, sexism, homophobia, and racism." Nov 5, 2023 ~ Clarice Feldman, 'Higher Ed: Now it’s Just Loco' Here's some of the things modern college kids (and other leftists) apparently support. "In one family, a first responder reported the husband was shot, the baby was placed in a burning hot oven, and the wife, to the screams of her dying child, was gang-raped and then killed." Another house, "The father's eye gouged out, the mother's breast cut off, the girl's foot amputated, the boy's fingers cut off before they were executed, and then their executioners sat down and had a meal."
Nov 5, 2023 ~ State University of New York at Albany sociology professor Renee Overdyke was arrested for violently disrupting a pro-life demonstration. She unplugged a projector and prevented the presentation and then she resisted arrest. This comes 2 weeks after a conservative speaker was shouted down and prevented to speak at the same university. The left despises free speech. They cannot allow any dissenting opinions to be heard. Its no mystery why.
Oct 23, 2023 ~ Marc Sarnoff, 'After Their Abysmal Response to the Hamas Attack, Universities Face a Reckoning' "The problem begins with spineless university administrators, who have consistently bowed to the woke tide of hateful speech from radical socialists. Universities that would fall over themselves to cancel a white-nationalist student group for excusing the murder of minorities have platformed student groups that blame Hamas’s attacks on the victims. Yale University, which allowed a professor’s career to be ruined for suggesting that students should be tolerant of each other’s Halloween costumes, has so far stood by a professor who wrote that 'Israel is a murderous, genocidal settler state and Palestinians have every right to resist through armed struggle.'"
Oct 22, 2023 ~ Bill Maher explains why many colleges like Harvard have become worthless cesspools of left wing garbage.
"As an Ivy League graduate who knows the value of a liberal education, I have one piece of advice for the youth of America. Don’t go to college. And if you absolutely have to go, don’t go to an elite college, because as recent events have shown, it just makes you stupid. There are few if any positives to come out of what happened in Israel, but one of them opening America's eyes to how higher education has become indoctrination, among them the simplistic notion that the world is a binary place where everyone is either an oppressor or oppressed. In the case of Israel, oppressors being babies and bubas. The same students who will tell you that words are violence and silence is violence were very supportive when Hamas terrorists went on a rape and murder rampage worthy of the Vikings. They knew where to point the fingers; at the murdered, and then it was off to ethics class."
"Siding with terrorists," "34 student groups at Harvard signed a letter saying 'the apartheid regime is the only one to blame,' proving they don't know what constitutes apartheid. They don't know much of anything, actually. But it doesn’t deter them from having an opinion. They’ve convinced themselves Israel is the most repressive regime in history because they have no knowledge of history or even a desire to know it. And actual history doesn’t come up in their intersectionality of politics and gender queer identities class.”
“If ignorance is a disease, Harvard Yard is the Wuhan wet market. The reason why despising Israel became pretty much a requirement of the American Left is colleges, elite colleges, the mouth of the river from which this and all manner of radical Left illiberal, yes, illiberal nonsense flows. Supporting all-black, that is segregated dorms, segregated graduation ceremonies, and orientation programs, which occur on hundreds of campuses is illiberal. So is the racism against Asian applicants and chasing speakers off of campus. When the First Amendment watchdog group Foundation for Individual Rights and Expression began ranking colleges based on their commitment to free speech and inquiry, Harvard came in dead last. There is only one set of acceptable opinions on campus, and it’s policed hard." "Elite schools should no longer be called elite. Just say expensive." Oddly, after excoriating Democrats and the left, Maher ends up attacking Republicans, perhaps annoyed that they figured all of this out long before he did?
Oct 15, 2023 ~ Matthew Continetti, 'The Shame of Academe' You many have known that so called 'higher education' institutions are toxic cesspools of hate that would cancel you for using the wrong pronoun but many are sad to discover how much pure antisemitism exists on these campuses. Worse is that the same left wing groups are staging large anti-Israel, pro Hamas demonstrations all over the world in cities like NYC, London, Toronto, Sydney etc. Chanting antisemitic slogans including "Gas the Jews."
Sep 16, 2023 ~ Update on black BLM activist named Zyahna Bryant who falsely accused a white girl at UVA named Morgan Bettinger of wanting to run over #BLM protesters who were lying on the road to block traffic. Bettinger was expelled after a kangaroo court, UVA released public statements implying she’s a white supremacist, her dreams of going to law school over, she became unemployable and she ended up with ongoing psychological issues as a result of the Bryant led mob ruining her life. Years later UVA admitted they wrongly expelled her and Bryant admitted she didn't ever hear Bettinger say anything. But Bettinger's life remains in ruins. So who better for Dove company to make one of their spokespeople than Zyahna Bryant? Dove needed Bryant to make people "aware of the fact that people have different bodies" and what its like to be "maneuvering through spaces in a fat body."
Sep 14, 2023 ~ John Sexton, 'How college diversity statements got started as a way to weed out white and Asian job applicants' Being against diversity statements is automatically disqualifying as Yoel Inbar found out. Beyond that, candidates are weeded out first by diversity statement. "Candidates who did not 'look outstanding' on diversity, the vice provost at U.C. Davis instructed his search committees, could not advance, no matter the quality of their academic research. Credentials and experience would be examined in a later round." "At Berkeley, a faculty committee rejected 75% of applicants in life sciences and environmental sciences and management purely on diversity statements." This is horrifying and is the tool they use to transparently discriminate both on race and ideological purity. DIE poison has killed the old liberal ideals of merit and color blindness.
Sep 14, 2023 ~ Kim Russell, head coach of the Oberlin College women’s lacrosse team has been removed from her job that she did well for 27 years because she opposed biological males in female sports. Science was on her side but the mob was not. Loud and clear message to coaches: Shut up, obey.
Sep 13, 2023 ~ Once again, the left proves that they despise free speech and think they should decide who should and shouldn't be allowed to talk. Asshole students at Washington College shouted down Princeton University Professor Robert George as he tried to give a speech titled “The Truth-Seeking Mission of the University,” allegedly for being 'anti-trans.' These shit stains are the same everywhere. Vile tyrants who think they decide who can speak and who can hear. They start with shout downs and resort to violence if necessary. Disgusting people but there are rarely any consequences for their behavior from cowardly or sympathetic universities which just emboldens them. This has happened 1000 times and its ALWAYS the left.
Sep 7, 2023 ~ Harvard ranks last in the Foundation for Individual Rights and Expression (FIRE) annual college free speech rankings. Based on survey data from 55,000 students Harvard got a 0 out of 100, the lowest score ever recorded. Saying anything unapproved is sure cancelation. Self censor.
Aug 13, 2023 ~ National Review, 'Harvard’s Cynical Move to Get Around the Affirmative-Action Decision' They are requiring an essay, "Harvard has long recognized the importance of enrolling a diverse student body. How will the life experiences that shape who you are today enable you to contribute to Harvard?" They are literally telling students to advertise their 'diversity' so they can judge how 'diverse' they will make the student body. Racists have no shame.
Aug 9, 2023 ~ If you incur student debt in a gender studies program (which Biden will force taxpayers to fund), you can learn the thoughts of trans writer Andrea Long Chu who was given the Pulitzer prize for such insights as "The asshole [is] a kind of universal vagina through which femaleness can always be accessed. Getting fucked makes you female because fucked is what a female is."
Jul 30, 2023 ~ Southern Illinois University Edwardsville (SIUE) has been ordered to pay student Maggie Dejong $80,000 for censoring her views and creating a toxic environment for her. Some woke students "reported" her for having "harmful rhetoric" on #CRT and Kyle Rittenhouse. Instead of defending her right to speak, SIUE prevented her from participating in discussions and did not give her the opportunity to defend herself.
Jul 28, 2023 ~ #CancelCulture rolls on. Dr. Mark Tykocinski has resigned as president of Philadelphia's Thomas Jefferson University because he liked some tweets that the mob disapproved of. Tweets that were critical of trans surgeries for children and some that were critical of Covid vaccines.
Jul 21, 2023 ~ 'Jamie Sarkonak: Toronto principal bullied over false charge of racism dies from suicide' The left levels false charges of racism all day everyday but their effect is still ruinous to good people's lives. Sometimes the effect is deadly. He simply questioned if Canada was as racist as the DIE training was asserting. "Canada wasn’t perfect, he said, but it still offers a lot of good. For the rest of the training session, and throughout a follow-up training session the week after, facilitators repeatedly referred to Bilkszto’s comments as examples of white supremacy. The experience was humiliating — particularly because Bilkszto placed a great emphasis on equality and anti-discrimination during his career." DIE 'education' is vile poison that destroys good institutions and people.
Jul 21, 2023 ~ Olivia Murray, "Tenured academic signals his belief in the sex binary, gets accused of 'serious misconduct'" "David Richardson, a tenured professor at Madera Community College, a gay conservative, was put on administrative leave because he won't use 'non-binary' pronouns.
Jul 21, 2023 ~ Janet Levy, 'DIE Litmus Tests are Robbing the Campus' Many campuses require applicants to submit a 'Diversity Statement' that must be evaluated for #CRT ideological purity before you can be hired. This is horrendously poisonous considering DIE is toxic.
Jul 21, 2023 ~ A #CancelCulture story that's almost comically absurd. Arizona State University invited Dennis Prager and Charlie Kirk to speak at the Lewis Center. 34 ultra left wing profs. objected so they canceled the event, fired the director of the Lewis Center and CLOSED the Lewis Center! The professors that got the event canceled falsely claimed that Prager and Kirk are "white nationalist provocateurs ... purveyors of hate who have publicly attacked women, people of color, the LGBTQ community, [and] institutions of our democracy." Lies and smears.
Jul 14, 2023 ~ Northwestern Prof Michael Bailey, 'My Research on Gender Dysphoria Was Censored. But I Won’t Be.' The article, “Rapid Onset Gender Dysphoria: Parent Reports on 1655 Possible Cases” was pulled due to activist bullying despite "ample evidence."
Jul 14, 2023 ~ After being told by SCOTUS that he can't illegally (without Congress) spend $500 billion on student loan forgiveness, Biden announces a bold NEW plan to instead illegally spend $39 billion.
Jul 11, 2023 ~ Berkeley Professor explains why many worthless x_studies degrees were created. Because many of the affirmative action admits could not handle real college coursework: “They admitted people who could barely read. There was a huge drop-out rate of affirmative action admits by mid-terms. No one had taught them the need to go to class. So we started introducing BS majors, in an effort to make the university ready for them, rather than making them ready for the university.”
Jul 10, 2023 ~ 38% of Brown University students identify as LGBTQ+, double 2010. Absurd obviously. People blame social contagion. But what's really happening is leftists setup a world where if you are not in an oppressed class, you are an 'oppressor.' Students scramble to find a victim status.
Jul 8, 2023 ~ To further prove Democrats and lefties are lying 100% of the time they use the terms "white supremacy" and "white supremacist", check out how often they are accusing Asian people of "white supremacy" for being against discrimination of Asians. They truly are despicable people.
Jul 7, 2023 ~ Ann Coulter, 'The Truth About Legacies' Dems and the #FakeNews tried to paint legacy admits as affirmative action for whites. But they distorted they picture by lumping legacies in with athletes and employee and donor offspring. Looking at legacies alone, they didn't need/get an affirmative action boost.
Jul 7, 2023 ~ Ryan Mills, 'Colleges May Rethink ‘Kangaroo Court’ Proceedings in Sex-Assault Cases after Yale Legal Loss'
"In its unanimous ruling in the case Khan v. Yale, the court found that Yale’s discipline hearing failed to 'ensure reliability' or to 'promote fundamental fairness' to the defendant."
Jul 5, 2023 ~ John Sexton, 'UCLA refused to hire a psychology professor after grad students complained he'd been critical of DEI on a podcast' #CancelCulture and #CRT, #DIE at its finest. He was against mandatory 'diversity statements.' You must repeat their mantras to get hired.
Jul 5, 2023 ~ Figure from SCOTUS Affirmative Action case shows clearly that they weighted the (completely fabricated) Personality scores so high that the "Overall" scores will turn out exactly how they wanted them by race with the Academic and Extracurricular scores not factoring into the Overall score AT ALL. The brazenness of their racism is amazing.
Jul 5, 2023 ~ #FakeNews @nytimes article, 'With End of Affirmative Action, a Push for a New Tool: Adversity Scores': "To build a diverse class of students, the medical school at UC Davis ranks applicants by the disadvantages they have faced." Instead of people competing to be the best, they now have to compete to be the most victimized and needy. Truly a sad and poisonous development.
Jul 4, 2023 ~ Gay Madera Community College Professor David Richardson, was put on leave for 'serious misconduct.' His crime was to believe that gender is binary and thus be unwilling to use 'non-binary' pronouns which “frustrate communication for ideological reasons.” No dissent is allowed!
Jul 4, 2023 ~ Spencer Lindquist, 'Syracuse University Professor Hosts Writing Workshop For Black Students Only' 'Equity' marches on. Equity is open discrimination, racism and segregation based on race, usually against White and Asian people.
Jul 3, 2023 ~ St. Philip’s College biology professor Johnson Varkey has been fired for teaching that that "sex is determined by X and Y chromosomes." Some students walked out when confronted with the facts of science. The cowardly college fired him. You can't even teach biology anymore.
