Harvard Crimson Columnist: Free Speech Should Be Abolished On Campus Because It Threatens Liberalism

Harvard Writer: Free Speech Threatens Liberalism And Must Be Destroyed – Daily Caller

If this Harvard University student got her way, free speech on campus would be abolished and professors with dissenting views fired, because radical leftism is the only permissible political philosophy and the First Amendment is a barrier preventing modern colleges from fulfilling their proper role as indoctrination camps.

Her name is Sandra Korn. She is a senior at Harvard and columnist for the Harvard Crimson.

In a recent column, Korn unambiguously insisted that the university should stop guaranteeing professors and students the right to hold controversial views and pursue research that challenges liberalism.

“If our university community opposes racism, sexism, and heterosexism, why should we put up with research that counters our goals?” asked Korn in her column.

The column’s subtitle was even more direct: “Let’s give up on academic freedom in favor of justice.”

Korn cited several instances of perspectives that clashed with her own being banned from campus as triumphant examples of the way Harvard should be run. The firing of Subramanian Swamy, a Harvard summer school instructor who was dismissed for his anti-Islamic views, was one such triumph.

She also invoked the academic boycott of Israel – something condemned by Harvard President Drew Faust and numerous other university presidents – as an example of the kind of tactics leftists should defend and use in order to get their way on campus.

Korn did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Her sharp rejection of intellectual freedom – a value enshrined by U.S. law and central to the success of American institutions of higher learning – is common among left-wing activists at elite colleges. Last week, Erin Ching, a sophomore at Swarthmore College, took a similar view when she criticized her university for committing the unforgivable crime of allowing a conservative – Christian thinker Robert George – to speak on campus.

“What really bothered me is, the whole idea is that at a liberal arts college, we need to be hearing a diversity of opinion,” she said, according to the Daily Gazette. “I don’t think we should be tolerating [George’s] conservative views because that dominant culture embeds these deep inequalities in our society.”

George, a Swarthmore alumnus, came to campus to debate Cornell West.

Pro-life students at the University of Alabama were victims of a similar belief that conservative views should not be publicly espoused on campus.

And at McGill University in Montreal, Canada, merely emailing an inoffensive .gif of President Barack Obama kicking a door triggers an investigation. The perpetrator was forced to apologize for committing a racial insensitivity.

My best advice to young women? Do not take Feminists seriously

Ladies, Feminists do not wish to empower you, they wish to use you to empower themselves, and to garner more influence, and to remain relevant, because relevance means $$$ to them. They also wish to move the country in a dangerous direction, away from family, and faith, and ladies, if you do not believe me, try making a choice for yourself that Feminists do not approve of. See how they treat you. And beware the most dangerous area you can heed the advice of Feminists is where sex and personal responsibility are concerned. Stacy McCain explains

Back in August, when I covered “SlutWalk DC,” I observed:

Date rape is an apparently common campus crime that usually involves two drunk young people, one of whom has an erect penis, and the other of whom is unable to avert what the erect penis typically does.

Of course, feminists would denounce such a statement of fact as a misogynistic expression of “rape culture,” but facts are facts: Alcohol is a significant contributing factor in the incidence of date rape. Leslie Eastman at College Insurrection remarks, “Never let it be said that outraged campus feminists confuse themselves with common sense,” as she highlights a Washington Post column about a recent uproar:

The message of Emily Yoffe’s Slate article about binge drinking and sexual assault on college campuses was as important as it was obvious: The best step that young women can take to protect themselves is to stop drinking to excess.
Young women everywhere — not to mention their mothers — ought to be thanking Yoffe. Instead, she’s being pilloried.
A “rape denialism manifesto” full of “plain old victim-blaming,” Lori Adelman wrote on the feminist blog Feministing.com. Erin Gloria Ryan, on Jezebel.com, accused Yoffe of “admonishing women for not doing enough to stop their own rapes.”

Read the whole thing. This feminist nonsense is perfectly understandable once you recognize that the whole p0int of endless ranting about the evils of the oppressive patriarchy is to absolve women of responsibility for their own failures. So the coed who starts guzzling tequila at the ATO house and wakes up the next morning sore, sticky and naked, with only vague memories of how she got that way, is not merely a victim of drunken fratboys — and we all know what deviant beasts those ATOs are, right? — but also a victim of all men everywhere throughout the course of human history. Anyone who says otherwise is just a misogynistic slut-shaming bigot.

In other words ladies, be careful around certain guys. It is easier to avoid date rape if you do not over indulge in alcohol. And while it is true that getting sooo drunk does not excuse anyone harming or assaulting you, the cold hard fact is not getting sooo drunk, makes avoiding becoming a victim much easier.

Leftists love to exploit a good crisis, even if they have to create one

That racial hoax at Olberlin College? Looks as if maybe they did it to create a crisis they could exploit

When The Great Oberlin Racism Hoax of 2013 was exposed last month by Chuck Ross at The Daily Caller, troubling questions arose as to How Could Oberlin Be So Cruel as to not have told students there weren’t really Nazi and KKK sympathizers stalking the campus.

Police records reveal that the Oberlin administration was aware, no later than February 27, that it was a hoax led by someone who was not racist, but rather, a pro-Obama liberal “anti-racist” activist who did it as a “trolling” prank to get a campus reaction. The students protesting on campus on March 4, when classes were canceled, were not told.

Oberlin could have informed the campus and the nation that there were no actual fires, just fire alarms pulled as a prank.  Instead, it allowed fear and disquiet to spread.  One student I spoke with stated that “people were freaking out when [the administration] brought in the FBI,” thinking there really was a threat.

But it’s even worse.  That fear and disquiet was exploited by student activists aligned with the Oberlin Multicultural Resource Center and Afrikan Heritage House with the encouragement of the Oberlin administration.

Oberlin “used that fear to get students to push for even more extreme policies”

A student contacted me to alert me to how the campus turmoil was exploited to encourage and then implement aggressive multicultural and left-wing agenda items:

I’d like to personally thank you for your coverage of the Oberlin hate hoax. Many students… have been following your site and are glad that somebody is helping to get the word out about the Oberlin administration’s response.

The Daily Caller story just grazes the surface of what really happened. The administration didn’t just allow students to live in fear, they actually used that fear to get students to push for even more extreme policies on campus. Many students formed into “working groups” to propose solutions for “institutional change”, nearly all of which have been approved by the administration and are being enacted.

This student’s concerns are reflected in the timeline of events, and documents reflecting the agenda.

Bob Beckel is your Daley Douchebag

I have to ask, what does Beckel bring to any debate? I mean besides possible drunkenness? This guy is a buffoon, a walk behinder who spews Liberal talking points. What he is not even bright enough to make up his own lies? When I look at Beckel, I ask how this walking poster for birth control ever made it anywhere, except the local bar of course! Any doubts as to the absolute lack of character this ass hat has are washed away in this clip.

 

Woman acquires penis, nation’s oldest all-women’s college hardest hit

Yes, you have every right to have a sex change, it is a free country, but, remember having surgery, such as an add-a-dick-to-me procedure does have consequences. One of those consequences is that you are NO LONGER a woman and thus, you can no longer live on campus at an all-womens college!

An undergraduate student at a small women’s college in North Carolina is seeking permission to stay at the school — and live on campus — after she undergoes gender reassignment surgery in February, which will finalize her transformation into a man.

Officials at the school, Salem College, are now considering the thorny issue, reports the Winston-Salem Journal.

Michelle Melton, Salem’s director of communications, would not identify the transgender student. She cited federal privacy laws, as well as the school’s confidentiality policies, according to the Journal.

Founded in 1772 by Moravians, Salem College is a private liberal arts school in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. It’s the 13th-oldest college in the country, and the oldest female educational establishment that remains a women’s college.

The school enrolls some 1,100 students. The 800 undergrads are all female, and only females are currently allowed to live on campus. Men who are at least 23 years old can participate in teacher education graduate programs and take adult education courses. However, they cannot live on or be part of the traditional undergraduate campus.

Again, actions have consequences, so do choices. Stop trying to make everyone else conform to you!

 

Man Falls to Death After Crane Standoff at SMU | Video | TheBlaze.com

UNIVERSITY PARK, Texas (The Blaze/AP) — Dallas police say a man who climbed a 150-foot construction crane at a college campus has fallen to his death, ending a 15-hour standoff. Sr. Cpl. Melinda Gutierrez says the man died early Tuesday. His name was not immediately released and Gutierrez…

KDFW-TV has more:

About 1:45 a.m., officers climbed the 150-foot crane to talk to the man, who was believed to be armed. Officers discovered the suspect had coated the door handle with some kind of greasy lubricant, and also sprayed a can of something similar at officers as they approached him.

When officers entered the cab, the man climbed out through the broken windshield and dangled from the bottom of the cab for about 15 seconds before falling to the ground below.
