College campuses are becoming the new home of Fascism

Case in point Evergreen State College where a professor is under fire for calling out the Snowflakes Brown Shirts

Evergreen State College students have berated a professor and called for his resignation after he objected to an event where white students were asked to leave the campus for a day.

Bret Weinstein, a biology professor at the university, sent out an email criticizing the purpose of this year’s “Day Of Absence” event where, unlike in the past, white students and faculty members were asked to leave campus to give space to people of color.

Traditionally, the annual event is characterized by people of color leaving the campus to show their contribution to the campus, while white students and faculty members are attending anti-racism workshops.

“There is a huge difference between a group or coalition deciding to voluntarily absent themselves from a shared space in order to highlight their vital and under appreciated roles … and a group or coalition encouraging another group to go away,” Weinstein wrote in the email.

“I would encourage others to put phenotype aside and reject this new formulation … On a college campus, one’s right to speak—or to be—must never be based on skin color.”

The professors stand in opposition to racism and ignorance of course resonated with the students and they promised to grow up and stop pretending to be victims. Just kidding, they of course demanded Weinstein resign or be fired Here is a video of their ultra tolerant tantrum

Behold the sight of indoctrinated idiots. These students are not capable of civility, reason, or critical thinking. All they see to know is that if anyone, in any way, disagrees with them, then that person is racist/sexist/Homophobic, etc. That person, must resign, be fired, or targeted, literally, until they are no longer willing to stand up to these student bullies. And yes, bullies is the proper term to use. The end game for them is to crush every last shred of dissent. Their ideology, to be frank, is incompatible with Western values, and certainly incompatible with America’s fundamental embracing of natural rights. 

Well, of course math is racist too!

The Pit of Inanity just gets deeper, and deeper, and…….

Progressives are totalitarians. In realms they control, like education, absolutely everything must be conscripted into the service of moonbattery — even math:

Teaching Social Justice through Secondary Mathematics” is a six-week online course designed by Teach for America and offered through EdX, which provides free online classes from top universities such as Harvard University, MIT, and Columbia University. …

Participants in the online course are given sample ideas for lessons they could create, such as using math to teach students about “Unpaid Work Hours in the Home by Gender” and “Race and Imprisonment Rates in the United States.”

The module also identifies five main themes of “intersectional mathematics,” including “mathematical ethics,” which refers to the notion that math is often used as a tool of oppression, according to the instructors.

Five main themes they say? More like five main signs of mental impairment

SJWMathPillars

There really are no words to adequately describe the level of insanity this illustrates. Math is math! Three plus two is five! It is not up for debate is it? Of course this is all part of polluting young minds to see race/oppression/sexism etc in everything.

Remember when segregation was a bad thing?

The Left bastardizes and destroys everything it touches, and race relations is a prime example. There was once a shameful time in America where people were segregated. this segregation was codified into law. But, as with other sins, and faults, American greatness overcame its own shortcomings. Liberals, that is to say actual Liberals, not what passes as “liberal” today helped greatly in turning that tide. Segregation died of its own sickness, and racism began to follow suit. Yes, of course the left would argue that racism is still prevalent in America, but the fact is that America is the most racially tolerant nation on earth. The fact is fewer and fewer people care about color, and more of us judge based on character not color. Yes, there are outliers, there always are. But these outliers are just that. 

But, the Left cannot let this be the narrative, and, they have turned “racism” on its head. Once being color blind, not seeing race as an important factor was once the definition of tolerance. Now, anyone who defines themselves as color blind is attacked as racist. White people? They are all racist, even if they have close friends of different races. So called “White privilege”, which is nothing but another concocted load of bovine excrement, is used to gin up hatred towards White people. Most disturbing is the new push towards a new segregation. Minorities, A.K.A. victim groups are told they need “safe spaces” where no White people are allowed. Discussions of race must exclude anyone that isn’t a member of a “victim group”.

Like everything else, “racism” has been turned on its head by Leftists. Perhaps nothing can better illustrate this despicable campaign of racial segregation than racially segregated graduations at Harvard. Yes, graduations are the modern day version of separate but equal.

Two days before Courtney Woods dresses in a cap and gown for Harvard’s traditional commencement, she will don a stole made of African kente cloth and address the crowd at a somewhat different event: a graduation ceremony for black students.

Student organizers said the event, called Black Commencement 2017, is the first university wide ceremony for black students at Harvard and is designed to celebrate their unique struggles and achievements at an elite institution that has been grappling with its historic ties to slavery.

Unique struggles and achievements? Yes, because Ivy League students are sooooo oppressed! Especially at a school with “ties to slavery”.

“I can only imagine how special I will feel when I walk across that stage and be able to honor my identity and my struggle at Harvard,” said Woods, who is completing a master’s degree at the Graduate School of Education. “I know this is exactly what students like me need to be inspired as we leave this place as emerging global leaders.”

Ah he is “special”. He needs inspiration, as if graduating from Harvard is not inspiring enough. Not if you are suffering from Racial Obsession Syndrome to the point that your “identity” is all about your skin color. How sad, how truly sad. But Black students are not the only “victims” of graduating from Harvard.

Similar ceremonies have been held for Harvard undergraduates as well as for students at Stanford, Columbia, Temple, and other campuses. On May 23, Harvard will also hold its third annual graduation ceremony for students of Latin American descent.

And that is not all, now BGLTQ students can segregate themselves and obsess over their “identity” as well

While there is no corresponding “White Graduation” planned, there will be a “Latinx Graduation Ceremony” offered the same day as Black Commencement, and Harvard’s Office of BGLTQ Student Life also held a “Lavender Graduation” for BGLTQ individuals on April 18, during which graduates were given rainbow stoles.

See! Let’s all separate ourselves and climb into identity cocoons! I wonder what other identities will join this campaign of exclusionary thinking emoting? Let’s see here

How about an Atheist students graduation? They would be safe from any mention of you-know-who by intolerant students who insist on exercising their natural rights of expression and religion.

How about a vegan graduation? No fur, or leather attire allowed, and please eat something before attending because the food will suck!

How about a separate ceremony for left-handed illegal immigrants? As long as we are self-segregating, and we all know how privileged those right-handed undocumented types can be.

Of course, there simply must be a separate ceremony for students who support Sharia Law. No women allowed who are not fully covered of course. And no women grads allowed because women are not to be educated. Also no members of any other faith, and certainly no Gay people, well except those who are going to be thrown from the stage and stoned to death as part of the after graduation revelry. And as an added perk, every graduate gets a “Death to America” stole, and a suicide vest, because tolerance!

Absurd examples? Yes.  But what is Leftism if not absurd?

Your Gutless Appeaser of the Day

So, a student wrote an op-ed about Gay marriage that offended some overly sensitive types that think they have a right not to ever be offended. And, of course, the editor-in-chief Celina Oseguera took the path of appeasement and surrendered to the grievance mongers

As a result of the unrelenting student backlash, the editor-in-chief of Mustang News, Celina Oseguera, issued a public apology for Bartlett’s op-ed, saying his writing “did more harm than start conversation.”

“Publishing this opinion piece has caused this campus and the marginalized groups in it a lot of pain and we are deeply sorry,” she wrote. “We as a staff now realize how naive we can be when addressing issues that affect groups of people with whom we don’t share the same experiences. That was ignorant on our part and we apologize.”

Taking it one step further, though, Oseguera promised to institute an editorial policy in which all “opinion pieces or articles that involve sensitive topics” will first be reviewed by “groups or people whom an opinion piece [could] potentially affect.”

So, this gutless wonder, who lacks any shred of integrity is going to allow the papers opinion pieces to be censored by malcontents. 

“We did not reach out to any individuals that are part of or connected to the LGBTQIA community to read ‘Homosexuality and the slippery slope’ and give us feedback before we published, and for that I also apologize,” Oseguera continued in one of four apologies, noting that as part of the new policy she will reach out to “different communities on campus” in “order to receive feedback on opinion pieces that may affect them.”

Oseguera also invited any “group on campus feels they can teach” her staff to be “more inclusive and informative in [their] writing on these sensitive topic” to reach out to her at her personal email, asking them to pitch her their ideas for how they “would like to make this happen,” evening opening herself up to the “ideas such as diversity workshops for reporters or a session on how to sensitively write about LGBTQIA issues.”

And freedom of speech, and of the press will be hardest hit. This is how Leftism survives folks. Cowards enable the whiners to control the dialogue to a point where no dialogue is possible. If you wish to write, or express any view that might “offend” someone, you must first get their approval? Gee, I wonder what could possibly go wrong? 

A commencement speech graduates could actually use

A much-needed dose of reality from Animal Magnetism

I’m not going to give you any trigger warnings; if you can’t handle what I’m about to say, there’s damn little future for you out there in the real world, so cowboy up.  Moments ago I congratulated you on your day of entry into reality, so to get you started off right, here is a hefty dose of reality for you.

In spite of what you may have been told during all your years of education, nobody owes you anything, and you aren’t special. Any perceived ‘need’ you may have does not entitle you to anything – most especially, not to one red cent of the product of anyone else’s effort. If any of your professors have told you that, then they are economic illiterates, moral frauds or outright charlatans.

Our wonderful Constitution, which has stood for well over two hundred years as the founding document of our Republic, guarantees you the opportunity to your pursuit of happiness. It does not require anyone to provide you the means to your happiness at their expense. You and you alone are responsible for your own life. You have no moral claim on anyone else’s productivity. Accept that fact and you are already one step ahead of most of your peers.

You are entitled to what you have earned through your own efforts, and not:

One.

Damn.

Thing.

More.

Go read the rest, pass it around. It is something that every special snowflake needs to hear. Sadly though, in our overly sensitive, walk around serious issues on tippy toes world, it is a message that is all to rare.

You might not know how bad zero tolerance policies have become

H/T Bearing Arms

OK, let us begin with a picture on Instagram, this picture

13803498_G

For “liking” that photo, of an air soft gun, seventh-grader Zachary Bowlin of Trenton, Ohio was suspended for 10 days. Yes, for “liking” a picture. Paging George Orwell

The notice Bowlin’s parents received explained why their son was being suspended: “The reason for the intended suspension is as follows: Liking a post on social media that indicated potential school violence.”

“I liked it, scrolling down Instagram at night about 7, 8 o’clock I liked it,” Zachary FOX 19“The next morning they called me down [to the office] patted me down and checked me for weapons.”

“I was livid, I mean, I’m sitting here thinking ‘you just suspended him for ten days for liking a picture of a gun on a social media site,” father Marty Bowlin recounted. “He never shared, he never commented, he never made a threatening post… anything on the site, just liked it.”

The school dropped the suspension but sent an email to parents recounting the situation:

Yesterday evening school officials were made aware to an alleged threat of a student bringing a gun to school. We act on any potential threat to student safety swiftly and with the utmost importance. This morning, the alleged threat was addressed and we can assure you that all students at Edgewood Middle School are safe and school will continue as normal. Thank you.

Beth Baumann wonders what will happen to a student who posts about their parents taking them to a gun range

Seriously? A threat of bringing a gun to school? What if *gasp* the student went to the gun range with his parents? Does that make him the next school shooter?

Just imagine how the bed wetting panic mongers might react to a student talking about a weekend trip to the range. What if that student were to post something like a picture of a target on social media, or talk about how their dad was teaching them to shoot. What type of Statist thuggery would such miscreants foist upon that child?

The school superintendent, of course stood by the school’s draconian actions

“Concerning the recent social media posting of a gun with the caption “Ready”, and the liking of this post by another student, the policy at Edgewood City Schools reads as follows:

The Board has a “zero tolerance” of violent, disruptive, harassing, intimidating, bullying, or any other inappropriate behavior by its students.

Furthermore, the policy states:

Students are also subject to discipline as outlined in the Student Code of Conduct that occurs off school property when the misbehavior adversely affects the educational process.

As the Superintendent of the Edgewood City Schools, I assure you that any social media threat will be taken serious including those who “like” the post when it potentially endangers the health and safety of students or adversely affects the educational process.”

This student did not harass anyone, nor did he threaten or bully anyone. And the only “adverse effect” to the educational process was the school’s knee jerk reaction. In fact it might be fairly argued that it was the school bullying and intimidating this student. The only statement made by the egregious overreach is that anyone who enjoys any positive aspect of firearms is to be ostracized, ridiculed, and made out to be a danger to others.

Something must be done about the plaque of zero-tolerance policies. They hurt kids, good kids. This must not stand!

 

Indoctrination’s cost

This young man in the video is, well, deeply stupid, yet because he can regurgitate the Marxist propaganda he has been fed on campus, he, and people like him, are  heralded by the Left as brilliant. No wonder the left pushes for “free college” and college for all. Universities are their number one tool for indoctrination. Here is more on what a destructive force a college education become?
