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.
Jun 30, 2023 ~ The Supreme Court STRIKES DOWN President Biden's student-debt-relief plan by a 6-3 vote. SCOTUS confirms the obvious fact that the plan is not authorized by the HEROES Act. Biden immediately vows to look for other illegal methods of funding the the program.
Jun 29, 2023 ~ In Students for Fair Admissions v. Harvard, the Supreme Court strikes down race based affirmative action in college admissions. Asians must score 450, 270, 140 points higher than blacks, Hispanics and whites for the same spot in college. SCOTUS said no more of that unconstitutional racial discrimination!
Jun 4, 2023 ~ Author and former Africana Studies professor at North Carolina State University, Dr. Kamau Kambon has died. Kambon once said "We have to exterminate white people off the face of the planet" on a Howard University panel televised on CSPAN. That statement received applause. Kambon was not canceled. His 'Blacknificent Books' continued to sell on mainstream outlets. He continued to receive speaking engagements. He was a celebrated member of the Black Lives Matter #BLM movement. After his death, he received glowing obituary after glowing obituary. Examples: "His legacy is bravery, resilience, and challenging the status quo. His work has inspired generations of activists and students." "He was a strong voice for African-Americans and other people of colour, and his WORDS and actions continue to inspire those who seek social justice." "His WORDS and deeds will inspire generations. (emphasis mine) And on and on. Many more.
May 25, 2023 ~ College student Olivia Krolczyk was given a 0 on her final project proposal for using the term "biological woman." The prof said it was "a solid proposal" but terms like that are "exclusionary and are not allowed in this course as they further reinforce heteronormativity." It made total sense that she needed to use that term as the paper was discussing the fairness of trans women competing with biological women in sports.
May 25, 2023 ~ Left wing Hunter College Prof Shellyne Rodriguez vandalized the table of pro life students while screaming at them. Then when a reporter tried to question her about it she held a machete to his neck saying, "I’m gonna chop you up with this machete!" The violent loon was fired.
May 6, 2023 ~ Black FSU Criminology professor Eric Stewart left FSU after studies that allegedly showed the US criminal justice system is 'racist' against black people were fraudulent. "the original, untampered data, showed that there was no relationship between the growth of minority groups and the severity of criminal sentences handed to them." Update: fired for Stewart has been “faking data” to prove that the legacy of lynching “makes whites want longer sentences for blacks” as part of his long-running work on “systemic racism.” Six of his studies have so far been retracted. New York Post: "Eric Stewart was a guru of the claim that 'systemic racism' infests America’s police and American society."
May 1, 2023 ~ Emma Camp, 'An ill-informed internet mob ruined her life. It was more than a year before investigations cleared her.' @grep_price11 summarizes: "A black BLM activist named Zyahna Bryant falsely accused a white girl at UVA named Morgan Bettinger of wanting to run over BLM protesters while her car was surrounded by a mob at a BLM protest in the summer of 2020. She was formally sanctioned by UVA, expelled in abeyance from the university, but two separate investigations concluded a year later that it never happened. Zyahna went on to a successful career and glowing profiles in media outlets while Morgan's life was completely destroyed including her plan to attend law school."
May 1, 2023 ~ A majority of colleges have dropped SAT requirements. Matt Yglesias explains the likely reason is that want to circumvent the probable SCOTUS ruling that will prohibit them from discriminating on race, which they very much want to continue doing. Having academic standards would admit too many people of the 'wrong' races so the standards must go in the name of 'equity.'
May 1, 2023 ~ After a pointless land acknowledgement, email signatures from The University of British Columbia say "To Our Black Students, Staff and Faculty: You are seen, you belong, you are beautiful, you are building a legacy, your history matters, be unapologetically Black, your existence matters, you are resilient, you are valued, your presence on campus matters, you are creative, you are innovative, you are brilliant, you matter." How are Black people and everyone else not embarrassed by this infantilization?
Apr 9, 2023 ~ More info coming out about the @Riley_Gaines_ assault and kidnapping. The trans activist thugs that assaulted her and would not let her leave the classroom she was hiding in were demanding money in exchange for releasing her. “Tell her to pay us, then she can go.” No arrests yet.
Apr 7, 2023 ~ Vile Columbia Law students throw a tantrum over some other students taking an Instagram picture with Justice Kavanaugh because they say he was 'credibly accused of sexual assault' (he wasn't). Each message was more ridiculous than the last: 'terrifying', 'harm,' etc. All "of color' groups denounce and promise to "withdraw our participation from Columbia Law School recruiting events." Over one Instagram photo.
Apr 6, 2023 ~ Woke children at the University of Albany in NY shut down another free speech event with their disruptions and uncivil behavior. The left could not despise free speech more. Left wing college cry bullies do this ALL THE TIME. They think only they should be allowed to speak.
Mar 26, 2023 ~ Spencer Lindquist, 'White Students Barred from ‘Womxn of Colour‘ Retreat at Iowa State University' At every turn the new 'diversity and inclusivity' acts to exclude white people. BTW, we're not sure what a 'womxn' is.
Mar 19, 2023 ~ New York Post, 'Black DEI director: I was called white supremacist for questioning woke policies.' Dr. Tabia Lee wanted to "create safe spaces for everyone" but found out that to be a DIE director, you have to be vigoriously anti-White and anti-Jew. She was accused of 'white-spaining' for giving a different opinion and angered the so-called 'anti-racists' by not 'confessing her white supremacy.' She was accused of 'white supremacy' for thinking White should be capitalized if Black is capitalized. She thought 'land acknowledgements', recited before every class and meeting were a "performative, almost pseudo-religious exercise" and showed they weren't even acknowledging the right tribe (if such a concept even makes sense). She wanted to hold a summit to address the anti-Semitism being experienced by Jewish students and faculty members on campus. She was told "the event wasn’t important and that Jewish people are white oppressors." DIE is pure poison that creates hostile and toxic environments for students and workers. It can't really be fixed as creating that type of environment is one of its primary purposes.
