…But It Helps.
Via Daily Caller:
A Reuters exclusive published Monday explores the conundrum faced by nonprofits that have received money from Jeffrey Epstein, the billionaire financier arrested and convicted for child prostitution.
But buried in the report is an insane statement from a Rutgers professor saying that he didn’t think he should return the money… because he didn’t think Epstein did anything all that bad.
Professor Robert Trivers told Reuters that Epstein was “a person of integrity who should be given credit for serving time in prison” and for settling civil lawsuits brought by underage girls. ”Did he get an easy deal? Did he buy himself a light sentence?” Trivers asks. “Well, yes, probably, compared to what you or I would get, but he did get locked up.”
But more to the point, Trivers didn’t see what the fuss was all about, since girls mature earlier nowadays. ”By the time they’re 14 or 15, they’re like grown women were 60 years ago, so I don’t see these acts as so heinous.”
To clarify, Epstein is not simply accused of having sex with young girls for money, the crime for which he served barely a year in prison. He was also accused of pimping out the underage girls to rich celebrities, owning a sex slave and using his girls to “obtain potential blackmail information” from powerful political figures.
Dr. David Pook, a professor at Granite State College, told the audience at the New Hampshire Institute of Politics that he helped write Common Core standards for English Language Arts in an effort to end “white privilege.”
“The reason why I helped write the standards and the reason why I am here today is that as a white male in society I am given a lot of privilege that I didn’t earn.”
The audience reacts with gasps, boos, and sounds of disbelief before a panel member yells “Hey!” to hush them.
So Common Core has racial and gender-based motivations – coming from this Administration’s Department of Education, who could be surprised? Promoting division has been a common theme throughout this presidency.
A video clip has surfaced of the University of California, Santa Barbara professor who appears to have stolen a graphic anti-abortion sign from two abortion protesters and then assaulted one of the protesters earlier this month.
The professor is Mireille Miller-Young. She is an associate professor in the feminist studies department who specializes in queer theory, black film and pornography.
The abortion protesters are Thrin Short, 16, and her sister 21-year-old sister, Joan. They are members of a Riverside, Calif.-based pro-life group called Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust.
Miller-Young is now facing assault charges as a result of her actions, reports The Daily Nexus, the UC Santa Barbara student newspaper.
The scene went down on Tuesday, March 4. The Short sisters were standing in a designated “free speech zone” on the UC Santa Barbara campus with at least one large, very gruesome poster depicting aborted fetuses.
Thrin Short told Fox News that Miller-Young approached her and her sister, who had already been arguing with a gaggle of angry counter-protesters. She said Miller-Young eventually became enraged, filched the sign and waddled away.
“Before she grabbed the sign, she was mocking me and talking over me in front of the students, saying that she was twice as old as me and had three degrees, so they should listen to her and not me,” Thrin Short told Fox News via email. “Then she started the chant with the students about ‘tear down the sign.’ When that died out, she grabbed the sign.”
The cellphone video clip appears to start at roughly this point. It shows Miller-Young and two women sauntering away with a large, homemade anti-abortion billboard.
“She’s a professor and she steals signs,” says one of the Short sisters.
“Don’t you know you are stealing?” asks another unseen female – presumably the other sister.
“I may be a thief but you’re terrorists,” Miller-Young responds.
Miller-Young and the two sign-carrying women then disappear into a building. The protesting sisters briefly carry on an argument with a still-loitering abortion advocate.
The sisters then head into the building. One of them then calls campus police. The other one continues filming.
“Try and stop us,” Miller-Young turns around and taunts.
A short time later, Miller-Young attempts to block access to an elevator and, at one point, lunges toward the sisters.
Someone keeps screaming, “Don’t touch me!” It’s not clear whose voice it is, though it appears to come from Thrin Short.
Short described the chaotic scene to Fox News, charging that Miller-Young assaulted her repeatedly, causing scratches on both of her wrists.
“I explained how I had been trying to keep the elevator door open with my foot, because I thought the police would be there any second, and that’s when she pushed and grabbed me,” Short explained. “She then got off the elevator and tried to pull me away from the elevator doors so the others could get away with the sign.”
Bitter yelling ensues in the video. The thieves successfully get the elevator door to close and the clip fades to black.
University officials are staying completely mum about the alleged assault by the feminist studies professor, calling Miller-Young’s actions a personnel matter.
Kristina Garza, a spokeswoman for Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust, noted the high irony of the incident.
“The professor is a feminist studies professor and her specialty is pornography, and she did commit an act of violence against another woman. So, the irony there to us is rather great,” Garza told Fox News.
“If she isn’t prosecuted, wouldn’t anyone else think they could do the same thing and get away with it?” Thrin Short added. “The assault on me was part of the whole package of her deciding that she was above the law and could do whatever she liked to us.”
David Guth, a professor at the University of Kansas’ journalism department, Tweeted out a sick message to the world after Monday’s Navy Yard shooting. He hopes that the children of NRA members are killed by the next crazed mass murderer. And he calls it “God’s justice” on “misguided miscreants”. Equally appalling is that the University stands behind its sick professor who wishes death on children.
According to http://www.campusreform.org/blog/?ID=5086x,
A journalism professor at the University of Kansas (KU) turned to Twitter on Monday to suggest he would like to see the murder of children of National Rifle Association (NRA) members at the hands of a deranged gunman.
“#NavyYardShooting The blood is on the hands of the #NRA,” tweeted David Guth, who is an associate professor of Journalism at the university’s William Allen White School of Journalism.
“Next time, let it be YOUR sons and daughters, he continued. “Shame on you. May God damn you.
Speaking with Campus Reform on Wednesday, Guth confirmed it was he who sent the controversial tweet.
“Hell no, hell no, I do not regret that Tweet,” he said. “I don’t take it back one bit.”
Guth also doubled down on the statement when other Twitter users pressed him, suggesting it was was shameful to call for the death of children.
“God’s justice takes many forms,” he tweeted in response.
And on Monday the associate journalism professor echoed those sentiments on his personal blog, called Snapping Turtle.
“I don’t wish what happened today on anyone,” he wrote. “But if it does happen again – and it likely will – may it happen to those misguided miscreants who suggest that today’s death toll at the Navy Yard would have been lower if the employees there were allowed to pack heat.”
Also in his interview with Campus Reform, he said that he wished “a pox on our Congress and a pox on the NRA” for not instituting gun control policies to prevent mass shootings…
Despite early rumors, the weapon used in the Navy Yard shooting was not an assault weapon, but a shotgun typically used for hunting small birds and wild game.
KU on Wednesday told Campus Reform that they stand by the professor’s right to make such statements…
While Guth’s Twitter account is personal, his biography includes a link that directs to the school’s website.
So, let’s sum this up. Americans, who respect and support the rights bestowed in our Constitution, want guns to be used to stop evil and protect human life. The KU professor, who resents our 2nd Amendment rights, wants guns to be used to kill children. Who is the “misguided miscreant”? And these sick people educate our children.
A college professor has been arrested for a profane rant at pro-life students at the University of Buffalo.
Professor Laura Curry screamed at students, yelling at them: “Where does it say I can’t use the f**k word in public. I can swear because that’s part of my vocabulary. That’s part of my First Amendment rights.”
According to a report by Fox News, Curry, an adjunct instructor of media study, was lashing out at the University’s Students for Life organization. The group had erected a pro-life display featuring images that offended Curry.
“I can swear in public because that is profane,” she said referring to the display. “That image is swearing to me. That is profane to me.”
More from the Fox News report:
An unidentified individual filmed the incident and posted the video on Creative Minority Report.
“That image is profane but f**k is,” she yelled at police officers responding to the disturbance.
A university spokesman told Fox News confirmed Curry’s arrest but declined to provide information about her current employment status.
“Would you let my class know I’m under arrest,” she asked as officers slapped a pair of handcuffs on the profane professor and carted her off to jail.
Kristan Hawkins, the president of Students For Life of America, said pro-life students are typically singled out for attacks on campus.
“As we’ve seen again and again, a pro-abortion supporter couldn’t handle the ugly truth of abortion and lashed out,” Hawkins told Fox News. “She had to resort to yelling and using profane language with police officers.”
Hawkins said Curry’s behavior sets the wrong example for students.
“We stand with UB Students for Life for courageously fighting to bring the truth of abortion to a liberal campus, despite attempts to shout them down, cover the display, and personally attack group leaders like President Christian Andzel,” she said. “UB SFL is the pro-life generation and they are already showing they know how to behave like better adults than the ones opposing them.”
The University of Buffalo did not offer any apology to the students who were subjected to the professor’s public outburst.

Potty Mouth Erik Loomis of Rhode Island University, home of the Blue Hens, or is that the Blue F—ing Hens? Stacy McCain has the story and background on Loomis, who seems to have a limited temper to match his limited vocabulary
Dishonest academic defenders of University of Rhode Island assistant history professor Erik Loomis have repeated the professor’s false assertion that he was criticized merely for using “metaphor” in hisunhinged Dec. 14 attacks on the NRA’s Wayne LaPierre.
One critic has decscribed the petition on behalf of Loomis, although ostensibly a defense of free speech rights, as a ”campaign to dominate debate and suppress criticism.”
In fact, Loomis’s “head on a stick” Tweet was just one of many offensive messages he sent on Dec. 14. More importantly, perhaps, the professor’s demented obscenity-strewn tirade attacted scrutiny, revealing that Loomis seemed prone to angry online eruptions, and had a habit of employing vulgarities in his Twitter messages, particularly in targeting Republicans.
Professor Loomis seems to have recognized that he had problems more serious than “right-wing morons” too stupid to understand metaphor, because he deleted his Twitter account to hide the evidence of his derangement. Fortunately, before the evidence got flushed down the digital memory hole, one of those “right-wing morons” was clever enough to compile six months’ worth of Erik Loomis’s Tweets into a 439-page PDF file. A few samples from the archive:
Lots more at the link, and by lots more I mean a F—ing F–k load of F—ing dirty tweets. Go read the rest of the post, it is fun to see Stacy pounding this nutcase of a professor.
A professor in Florida is under fire today after forcing her students to sign a pledge to vote for Barack Obama and Democrats. Oliver Darcy over at Campus Reform has more:
college professor has been placed on leave after she allegedly forced her class to sign a pledge to vote for President Obama in the upcoming elections.
Early last week Professor Sharon Sweet at Brevard Community College (BCC) allegedly told students to sign a pledge that reads: “I pledge to vote for President Obama and Democrats up and down the ticket.”
University administrators said they learned about the incident late Thursday afternoon and launched an investigation, after they received a phone call from a concerned parent.
“Based on the allegations, Associate Professor Sweet has requested, and been granted, a leave of absence without pay effective immediately,” reads a statement put out by John Glisch, Associate Vice President for Communications at BCC.
“The college will continue its investigation into the matter, which will include interviews with all students in her class,” continues the statement.
Sweet’s actions may have also violated Florida’s election laws.
The pledge was printed by Sweet from GottaVote.org, a voter registration website paid for by the Obama campaign. I’m pretty certain Ms. Sweet failed to tell her students that 50 percent of recent college graduates can’t find a job and that they’ll most likely have to move back in with their parents after school as a result. Young America’s Foundation points out the youth misery index has hit a record high of 90.6.
Young America’s Foundation has released the Youth Misery Index (YMI), which has reached a record high (90.6) and has grown more than 25 percent in four years—17 percent since the Obama administration took office.
To calculate the index, Young America’s Foundation adds together youth unemployment, average graduating student debt (in thousands), and national debt per capita (in thousands). At no point in recent history has life been harder for America’s young people.
The Youth Misery Index represents a three-pronged attack on young Americans’ financial security – educational debt from their past, unemployment in the present, and a future plagued by the burden of massive government debt.
Youth unemployment is at 17.4 percent – one of the highest levels since World War II. Average graduating student debt has reached a record-breaking $26,300. National debt per capita is $46,900—the highest ever. Add it up, and the Youth Misery Index comes out to 90.6 (17.4 + 26.3 + 46.9 = 90.6). What does this number mean? Like Jimmy Carter’s Misery Index, the YMI uncovers some real threats to our nation’s prosperity.
The economy doesn’t run on hope and change, it runs on strong businesses and economic growth, both lacking under Obama.
Prof. Robert F. Shedinger, the head of the religion department at Luther College in Iowa, told ITCTV back in 2010 that Jesus was a Muslim.
(Mohammed was born six centuries after Christ!)
This crackpot is still pushing his nonsensical thesis that Jesus was a Muslim.
The head of the religion department at Luther College in Iowa recently argued that Jesus Christ, the central figure of Christianity, was in fact, a Muslim.
“‘Was Jesus a Muslim?” asks Prof. Robert F. Shedinger in the beginning of a book he published this year entitled Was Jesus a Muslim? ” I will answer with a very qualified yes.”
In a recent interview Shedinger also defended his controversial thesis explaining that a Muslim undergraduate student had sent him on academic odyssey that culminated with him asking himself “Was Jesus a Muslim?”
“Even as a Christian I have to answer yes to that,” said Shedinger, who is the head of the religion department at Luther College in Iowa.
Shedinger also argued that Islam is a better fit for Jesus since it is not a religion but a “social justice movement.”
“I had to rethink what Islam is… I came to the conclusion that it was a social justice movement and I think that’s who Jesus was in the first century so I conclude Jesus is more like a Muslim,” he said.
The vast majority of scholars, historians, Muslims, and Christians date the birth of Islam to 622 ADE when the Prophet Muhammad claimed to have received visions that were eventually compiled into the Koran. Jesus, on the other hand, is believed to have existed more than 600 years earlier, at around 0 BCE.
If you are wondering why some folks are starting to question whether a college education is worth the cost, the video below goes a long way towards explaining it. Recently, the University of Missouri-St. Louis (UMSL) and the University of Missouri-Kansas City (UMKC) sponsored two college courses: Introduction to Labor Studies and Labor Politics and Society, to be taught simultaneously through a video conference between to two campuses.
The Professors are Judy Ancel, Director of Labor Studies at UMKC and Don Giljum, business manager for the International Union of Operating Engineers at Ameren UE in St. Louis. (Bonus: he is a member of the Communist Party.)
In the class, the Professors not only advocate the occasional need for violence and industrial sabotage, they outline specific tactics that can be used. As one of our colleagues pointed out, its the matter-of-factness of it all that is so disturbing.
And yes, the schools, and the professors’ salaries, are funded by taxpayers.
Check back for more explosive, exclusive video later today.
A Northwestern University professor is under fire for reportedly holding an optional live-sex presentation on campus.
On Feb. 21, Psychology Prof. John Michael Bailey invited his “human sexuality” students to observe a non-student naked woman experiment with motorized sex toys on stage. According to the local NBC affiliate, about 120 students attended the demonstration. The questionable show was curated by Chicago “sex tour guide” Ken Melvoin-Berg.
“Talking about [sex] doesn’t always lend itself to this sort of thing,” Melvoin-Berg said. “We’re not just talking about it. We’re actually doing it.”
The University has reportedly declined to comment on the incident, but one student said the sex toy demonstration was billed as a question-and-answer session about sexual fetishes.
“Then, just out of nowhere, the girl just takes her pants off, takes her shirt off, takes her underwear off,” the stunned student said, adding that a number of people felt uncomfortable and promptly left. “As long as there’s been proper warning, the people that stay shouldn’t feel offended,” he said. “They‘re choosing to see what they’re seeing.”
But why is such an activity a) taking place on campus, and b) being promoted by a member of the school’s faculty?
Bailey’s controversial class attracted 622 Northwestern students this semester alone. After-class panels such as the one last Monday are offered as “educational addendums” to the class. This semester’s optional seminars have so far included: a panel of gay men discussing their sex lives; a transsexual performer; two convicted sex offenders; a swinging couple; a plastic surgeon; and a panel on “networking for kinky people.”
During a lecture last week, Bailey addressed the mounting controversy surrounding the latest seminar. “I think that these after-class events are quite valuable. Why? One reason is that I think it helps us understand sexual diversity,” he said, according to an audio file obtained by the school newspaper.
“Sticks and stones may break your bones, but watching naked people on stage doing pleasurable things will never hurt you,” he said to loud applause at the end of his speech.
In a statement, Bailey defended the extra-curricular seminars, refusing to surrender to “sex negativity and fear.“ Student feedback was ”uniformly positive,“ insisting Northwestern students are ”open-minded grown ups rather than fragile children.”
“To the extent that this event provokes a discussion of my reasoning above, I welcome it,” Bailey concluded Wednesday. “I expect many people to disagree with me. Thoughtful discussion of controversial topics is a cornerstone of learning.”
