Syndicated columnist and professor, Walter E. Williams, chastised today’s college snowflakes and the “academic dishonesty” of educators using classrooms to push their political views.
Williams, a Distinguished Professor of Economics at George Mason University where he has taught for 36 years, commented on the differences between his academic experience and those of today’s generation at an award ceremony in Washington, D.C. on Thursday, according to TownHall.
“Many professors, particularly those on the socialistic side of the political spectrum, use their classrooms to proselytize students,” he said. “While professorial proselytization is common and accepted at most universities, I believe that to use one’s classroom to push one’s personal beliefs is both immoral and academic dishonesty.”
Williams was awarded the Bradley Prize from the Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation for his lifetime work defending conservative ideals as an educator, author and commentator.
He tipped his hat to his own teachers for “not giving a damn about his self-esteem” and treating him like an adult during his school years. Contrasting his own experiences with the current entitled generation that is coddled and given safe spaces at today’s colleges, Williams noted that many teachers and employers “care more about people’s feelings rather than their performance.”
“It is a cowardly act to take advantage of student immaturity by indoctrinating them with the professor’s opinions before the student has developed the maturity and skill to examine other opinions,” he said.
Go read it all. Walter Williams is a blessing of wisdom in an increasingly foolish world
A Mississippi man declared dead woke up in a body bag at a funeral home.
“I stood there and watched them put him in a body bag and zip it up,” Walter Williams’ nephew Eddie Hester said.
The coroner said he checked Williams for a pulse around 9 p.m. Wednesday, and later pronounced him dead at his home in Lexington with no heartbeat.
“That was at 10:30,” Hester said. “My cousin called me and said ‘Not yet’ and I said what you mean ‘Not yet?’ He said ‘Daddy still here.'”
After the coroner helped move Williams to Porter and Sons Funeral Home, workers were getting ready to embalm him when he started to move.
“He was not dead, long story short,” funeral home manager Byron Porter said. Porter said he had never seen anything like it before.
Paramedics took Williams to the hospital.
Family members say they’re happy he’s alive. His daughter Martha Lewis said, “I don’t know how much longer he’s going to grace us and bless us with his presence, but hallelujah, we thank him right now, right now!”
If only our political leaders had his wisdom, and his patriotism. YES I am questioning the patriotism of many of our political leaders!
Walter Williams is a national treasure
Found this clip at Adrienne’s place. Walter Williams is a national treasure. As you watch, think of how much different our nation would be if Congress had the wisdom of Williams.
