The Daily Caller’s Official Rundown Of The Worst, Looniest, Most Leftist Professors In America (Emma Colton)

The Daily Caller’s Official Rundown Of The Worst, Looniest, Most Leftist Professors In America – Emma Colton

his mild summer is winding down. Professors across the fruited plain are preparing for another fall semester of spewing half-baked progressive ideologies at gullible undergrads.

It’s time, then, for The Daily Caller’s second annual, highly definitive list of the worst professors in America. All the professors on the first annual definitive list remain terrible, of course. But we won’t bore you with some rehash.

Instead, here are a dozen professors from this past school year who stole the headlines for being the most leftist, goofy and downright absurd.

Former University of Memphis sociology professor Zandria Robinson came under scrutiny in July when tweets she tweeted revealed her beliefs that “whiteness” is “terror” and that the Confederate flag represents “capitalism.” Robinson, who took a job at Rhodes College this summer, also claimed that her very serious premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD) might be triggered by “severe trauma from microaggressive whiteness.” Robinson set her Twitter account as private when the news broke about her radical opinions, but she has since made her account public again. She continues to comment on race and gender issues.

In January, TheDC awarded Shimer College humanities professor Adam Kotsko the title of America’s Stupidest College Professor because he tweeted that the horrific terrorist attack on the French satirical publication Charlie Hebdo was foreseeable because the writers spewed “hate speech.” He later apologized profusely when he realized that Charlie Hebdo was not some exclusively anti-Islam pamphlet. He begged Salondotcom to remove screenshots of his hilariously idiotic tweets. You’d think Kotsko would slink away from social media, embarrassed for life. But, no. In a now-deleted tweet from June 2015, Kotsko suggested that white people alive right now are complicit in slavery even though they obviously have no involvement in it and even if their ancestors were never involved in it. “I know it sucks having a racial identity that exists solely to legitimate the subordination and exploitation of other races. #whiteness,” he wrote.

Ron Hayduk, a professor at Queens College in New York, believes illegal alien voting is the “suffrage movement of our time.” So moved is Hayduk for the voting rights of people who have no legal right to be in the United States that he wrote an op-ed in the Providence Journal in January. “Noncitizens suffer social and economic inequities, in part, because policymakers can ignore their interests,” the taxpayer-funded professor wrote. “The vote is a proven mechanism to keep government responsive and accountable to all.” Hayduk staunchly believes that voting rights and citizenry do not go hand-in-hand, so everyone and anyone should be able to cast a ballot in the land of opportunity.

Enrique W. Neblett, Jr, an associate professor of psychology and lab director of the African-American youth wellness laboratory at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, believes black college students become fat due to racism they probably experience in college. Or, shorter Neblett: The “freshman 15″ is racist – if you are black. At an April 2015 lecture at the University of Georgia, Neblett elaborated on his revolutionary theory. “Youth are thinking about their identity and may experience race discrimination for the first time,” he said. “Experiencing racism might lead to compromised health. For example, some students will cope by eating fatty snacks.”

Thanks to the power of the Internet, an obscure 2012 study by Marquette University psychology professors Stephen Franzoi and Debra Oswald saw the light of day late last summer. In their study, Franzoi and Oswald concluded that calling your daughter a “princess” is sexist behavior. Worse, daughters who get called “princess” may suffer from high self-esteem. That’s bad, see, because it’s “benevolent sexism” which amounts to “restrictions misunderstood as love.” “Benevolent sexism” “restricts what the woman can and cannot do by setting up rewards and punishments when they engage in gender non-conforming behaviors.” Another example of “benevolent sexism” includes chivalrously holding doors open.

Stanford University education professor Jo Boaler made claims in a February interview with U.S. News & World Report that it’s “harmful” to tell students to memorize and to practice simple math equations. Boaler – who in 2006 was accused of scientific misconduct by fellow Stanford professors – is also against giving student timed quizzes. It’s just way too stressful. “When we combine those who are stressed with those who are turned away from math because of them [quizzes], we have a large section of the U.S. population that goes across all achievement levels,” Boaler proclaimed.

Sara Goldrick-Rab, a sociology professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, warned her Twitter followers this year that Wisconsin governor and presidential candidate Scott Walker has “terrifying” “similarities” to Adolf Hitler. “My grandfather, a psychologist, just walked me through similarities between Walker and Hitler. There are so many-it’s terrifying,” the taxpayer funded professor tweeted in July. Goldbrick-Rab also decided it would be a good idea to contact high school seniors who are barely 18 and who have no idea who she is to tell them a bunch of professors would leave the school. She also threatened to quit and find another job in response to a new tenure law. And she has called former President Jimmy Carter is an “extraordinary national treasure.”

Stephany Rose, a professor of women’s and ethnic studies at the University of Colorado Colorado Springs, claimed in July that African American celebrities like Stacey Dash perpetuate white supremacy by being successful African Americans. “When you come across these individuals like a Stacey Dash, there is this idea that they buy into the mythology of merit, and meritocracy, and the American dream is available to any and everyone one as long as you work hard,” Rose said in a radio interview. Successful, famous black Americans perpetuate white supremacy because they attain the American dream and their success in America immortalizes white hierarchy, capitalism and the competition to live a prosperous life. That’s Rose’s theory. If you want to read more, Rose has a book, “Abolishing White Masculinity from Mark Twain to Hiphop.” You can buy it for a cool $80.

In June 2015, Cornell University associate professor of science and technology Sara Pritchard, wrote an article for The Conversation calling for universities to give bonus points to female professors as a method to combat gender bias. According to Pritchard, the course evaluations students at colleges across the country are encouraged to fill out each semester are “pervasively slanted by gender bias.” The Ivy League educator claimed that female professors are subject to personal attacks about appearances and fashion choices. Due to this alleged bias, they should be awarded extra bonus points to boost their evaluation outcomes.

In the sexiest email sent to a class of law students this year, Drexel University law professor Lisa McElroy sent her pupils an email containing a 13-minute porn video from mega-website PornHub.com called, “She Loves Her Anal Beads.” The fracas occurred in April. McElroy included the text, “I thought this article on brief writing would be interesting to all of you.” As promised by the title, the video showed a woman loving her anal beads. Lots and lots of anal beads.

Taxpayer-funded University of Maryland women’s studies professor Ashwini Tambe took to Twitter was in the news in May because she took to Twitter to call for “men control.” It’s masculine men with guns who kill people, Tambe claimed. “#YesAllWomen” and it’s time to “Recast masculinity.” Tambe has also used Twitter as a soapbox to rant about lowering the voting age to 16, and to defend the fraudulent and fabricated Rolling Stone article about a rape that never happened at the University of Virginia. Currently, Tambe is using her professor status to research “the legal paradoxes in age standards for sexual consent and the shifting definitions of girlhood.”

Juan Cole, a professor of history at the University of Michigan, claimed in June that right-wing Jews and an “Islampohobic network” were “a key influence” for Dylann Roof’s rampage that killed nine people at a black church in Charleston, S.C. “The Muslim-hatred of the Geert Wilders and Marine LePens in Europe, for which Daniel Pipes, and Pamela Geller, and the whole Islamophobic network are cheerleaders and enablers, was a key influence on Dylann Roof, according to his manifesto,” Cole wrote on his popular blog, Informed Comment. As a commenter noted, Roof’s manifesto makes no mention of Pipes, Geller, Wilders, Muslims, or Islam.

I could call Michael Eric Dyson a loathsome bottom-feeding parasite

But that would not go far enough in describing how loathsome this race pimp is

What a genuinely stupid man, assuming he actually believes his own BS, Dyson is. But I doubt he is after anything but keeping his job as a race pimp by spreading such racist, and divisive remarks. I cannot find the proper words to describe how much I despise this walking, ranting pile of hippo dung.

 

Your Race Pimp of the Day Michael Eric Dyson

This guy gives snake oil salesmen a bad name

This guy is a easy to see through as they come, yet, too many Blacks have been conditioned to buy the venom and hatred he spews. In fact, far from being a friend to Blacks, he is one of their very worst enemies. And ass hats like Toure are not far behind

 

If there is sooooo much racism, sexism, Homophobia, and bigotry in America, why do Liberals have to fake incidents?

The short answer, of course, is that there is not very much racism, sexism, Homophobia or bigotry in America, so, the Left creates such incidents to justify their constant carping. The Other McCain can only hope an Alabama win over Auburn Saturday is as easy to see coming as yet another phony hate crime

How predictable was this?

On Nov. 14, [Vassar College] sent a mass email to students advising them that Bias Incident Response Team (BIRT) had received at least six reports in the last few months of hateful and insensitive messages being scrawled and spray painted on student residences. Messages included “Avoid Being Bitches,” “Fuck Niggers,” and most prominently, “Hey Tranny. Know Your Place.”

“This is unacceptable and members of our community should be able to learn and work in environments that are free of hurtful expressions and behaviors,” wrote Edward Pittman, BIRT coordinator and dean of the College for Campus Life and Diversity, in an email to students. . . .

Here is another reason the Left invents hate crimes, they just love having groups with important sounding names like Bias Incident Response Team

The task force had one student member: Genesis Hernandez, who is transgendered and was also a vice president of the Vassar Student Association (VSA), the student government.

Five days after the email was sent, Vassar President Catharine Hill sent a follow-up email announcing that the bias incidents were hoaxes perpetrated by two students. . . .

[The Daily Caller] has learned that one of the perpetrators was none other than Genesis Hernandez.

Informed sources within Vassar told The DC that administrators pinpointed Hernandez as a responsible party, forcing him to give up his position in student government and leave the college.

Maybe the Left should study the story of the Boy Who Cried Wolf? 

Police seize investigative reporters files during home raid

Reading over this report at The Daily Caller, something does not smell right 

A veteran Washington D.C. investigative journalist says the Department of Homeland Security confiscated a stack of her confidential files during a raid of her home in August — leading her to fear that a number of her sources inside the federal government have now been exposed.

In an interview with The Daily Caller, journalist Audrey Hudson revealed that the Department of Homeland Security and Maryland State Police were involved in a predawn raid of her Shady Side, Md. home on Aug. 6. Hudson is a former Washington Times reporter and current freelance reporter.

A search warrant obtained by The DC indicates that the August raid allowed law enforcement to search for firearms inside her home.

A search warrant for guns would not seem to cover confidential files, maybe someone with more experience or knowledge can correct me here, but, again, something seems to stink

The document notes that her husband, Paul Flanagan, was found guilty in 1986 to resisting arrest in Prince George’s County. The warrant called for police to search the residence they share and seize all weapons and ammunition because he is prohibited under the law from possessing firearms.

But without Hudson’s knowledge, the agents also confiscated a batch of documents that contained information about sources inside the Department of Homeland Security and the Transportation Security Administration, she said.

Outraged over the seizure, Hudson is now speaking out. She said no subpoena for the notes was presented during the raid and argues the confiscation was outside of the search warrant’s parameter.

“They took my notes without my knowledge and without legal authority to do so,” Hudson said this week. “The search warrant they presented said nothing about walking out of here with a single sheet of paper.”

To me, the warrant seems like an excuse to enter the home and look for something else? Maybe Hudson was stepping on the wring toes?

At about 4:30 a.m. on Aug. 6, Hudson said officers dressed in full body armor presented a search warrant to enter the home she shares on the bay with her husband. She estimates that at least seven officers took part in the raid.

After the search began, Hudson said she was asked by an investigator with the Coast Guard Investigative Service if she was the same Audrey Hudson who had written a series of critical stories about air marshals for The Washington Times over the last decade. The Coast Guard operates under the Department of Homeland Security.

There is more here to the story, and it will hopefully come out. RS McCain knows Hudson and adds some background

As soon as I saw the headline, I called Audrey, whom I worked with for years at The Washington Times. Audrey said she was “terrified” when she learned that police who raided her home in August — believe it or not, they had a search warrant for a potato launcher her husband had bought online — had taken notes containing information about sources for some of her reporting on TSA scandals.

McCain also provides some links to others covering this

 Now a Memeorandum thread, with more commentary byBryan Preston at PJ Tatler and Rick Moran at the American Thinker

Like I said, there is more to this story, we shall see what develops

 

I think MSNBS has found a new host

His new show could be called UNHINGED! Maybe STALKING the Conservatives! Seems right up the MSNBS alley! On second thought maybe the new show could be called Civility Alley?

Democrats are always calling for civility in politics, but it’s a shame they don’t follow their own advice. Their rhetoric is so out of control they’ve inspired one guy to go off and threaten the life of Senator Ted Cruz, over and over again.

The man under FBI investigation for making violent threats against Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz was inspired to encourage violence by Democratic Party messaging efforts.

Troy Gilmore, Jr., who identifies himself as having served in the U.S. Navy, is under FBI investigation for possible violent threats on Twitter against Republican senator Cruz. The FBI has communicated with Gilmore as part of the investigation and is monitoring for possible violence inspired by Gilmore’s online writings. …

The Twitter account of Gilmore, named “DarkNight,” is now protected. But Gilmore wrote numerous threats toward Cruz on his Facebook page, the address of which ends with the term “countdown543,” while linking to anti-Republican activist web pages paid for by the Democratic National Committee, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and a Democratic congressional campaign.

“I WILL SAY IT AGAIN LET’S GO TO TED CRUZ,HOME AND KICK HIS STINKING ASS FOR CAUSING THIS MESS.YOU CAN BET HE HAS HIS PAYCHECK AND HEALTH BENEFITS FROM THE SENATE AND CANADA. HE LIVES AT [address redacted by The Daily Caller], THE FUCKING SCUM,” Gilmore posted on Facebook October 14, linking to a Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee web page entitled “Demand Ted Cruz Denounce Disgusting Tea Party Attacks on President Obama.” (Read More)

There’s much more at the link. Gilmore posted over and over again Cruz’s home address, possibly inspiring other unhinged liberals to go after Cruz and his family. Someone should alert Debbie Wasserman Schulz, I think this guy needs a lecture on civility.

 

Rep Alan Grayson: Team Obama fudged intel in Syria?

This is a Left-Wing nut blowing the whistle folks. But if anyone has less credibility than Grayson, it would be Obama

Rep. Alan Grayson, D-Fla., who is aggressively lobbying against a military strike on Syria, says the Obama administration has manipulated intelligence to push its case for U.S. involvement in the country’s two-year civil war.

Grayson made the accusation in an interview published Wednesday by The Atlantic and offered more detail in a Thursday discussion with U.S. News. He says members of Congress are being given intelligence briefings without any evidence to support administration claims that Syrian leader Bashar Assad ordered the use of chemical weapons.

Grayson said he cannot discuss the classified briefings, but noted details in the administration’s public, non-classified report are being contested.

The White House released its four-page public report Aug. 30, arguing that Assad’s government killed 1,429 people on Aug. 21 with a planned chemical weapon attack. Evidence cited in that report included “intercepted communications involving a senior official intimately familiar with the offensive who confirmed that chemical weapons were used.”

Grayson, however, says “the claim has been made that that information was completely mischaracterized.”

He points to an article published by The Daily Caller that alleges the communications actually showed Syrian officers were surprised by the alleged chemical weapon attack. The communications, according to unnamed sources paraphrased in article, were intercepted by Israeli intelligence and “doctored so that it leads a reader to just the opposite conclusion.”

This could prove very big, IF the media gets after the truth for once
