College Professor Happily Retired, Free of Rabid SJWs

From Thom Nickels at Pajamas Media

 

I was talking with an ex-university professor recently who told me that he was very happy to be retired. He said he was glad to be out of the hornets’ nest, away from a world so filled with political correctness that it was difficult to get through the day. Life on campus, he said, is rife with so many non-issue “issues” that it’s like walking barefoot on sidewalks littered with broken glass.
>He related how he once told a fellow professor that she “looked very nice today,” meaning that she had selected a particularly nice outfit. Rather than thank him for the compliment, the professor took him to task for being sexist and going out of his way to objectify her as an object (a piece of meat) to be admired.

“You wouldn’t say the same thing to a male colleague,” she scolded. The male professor was taken aback and told her that she was wrong. “I do say the same thing to male colleagues. I do it all the time.” The professor also happened to be gay, so he wasn’t thinking about female objectification (the meat factor) when he said what he said. Welcome to university life in 2018, where every word out of your mouth has to censored, and where even paying a colleague a compliment can get you into hot water.

The ex-professor told me another story, of when his university invited a well-known woman speaker to lecture to students. While the speaker’s presentation was flawless and held the audience spellbound, during the Q and A a well-dressed young man stood up and said that the speaker had disparaged African Americans.
“I compliment you on a good talk, however you made one gross mistake that is offensive to the African American community,” he began. The speaker asked in a soft voice what the offensive remark was.

“In your introduction, you described yourself as being the ‘black sheep’ of your family,” the student said. “The use of the word black in this instance connotes negativity and undesirability and as such it casts a poor light on African American students. It is racist.”
Yes, she was right up there with the Ku Klux Klan.
The speaker swallowed hard, not quite sure what she should say when another woman professor in the audience stood up and complimented her on a stellar lecture and added that she was certainly entitled to express her views anyway she wanted to, including using any word she felt was appropriate. Common sense won out in this instance — the easily triggered student who called the speaker a racist became so unpopular on campus that he eventually transferred to a school outside the United States.

But this is a rare scenario. Generally the triggered student is not reprimanded, but joined by other triggered allies in the audience.

……There was a time not so long ago when only the right wing was crazy over censorship. In the ‘50s, ‘60s and ‘70s, it was conservatives who banned books and movies and even speakers (Communists, etc.) from college campuses. Today it is the Left. That’s why the term regressive left in now a part of the national vocabulary. A regressive leftist is someone who has an inability to listen to contrary, uncomfortable viewpoints without throwing out accusations of bigotry, racism, and white supremacy. Labeling someone a “racist” or a “white supremacist” is supposed to shut down all debate. It’s what philosophy professor Christina Hoff Sommers means when she says: “In their war against intolerance, they take on the extremes of intolerance.” She also adds: “It’s going to be hard for future historians to understand what happened on American campuses in this decade.” This is true because freedom of expression on campus is being replaced by the right to feel comfortable.
When I attended journalism school, America was waging the Vietnam War. Students at that time were either pro-war (a hawk), or pro-peace (a dove). The majority of students at my school were reluctant to take a side: they didn’t want to voice their opposition to the war because so called peaceniks in those days were often labeled “dirty long haired hippies in need of a bath.”

When our professors would occasionally blurt out a pro-hawk statement during class they would usually accent it with an acerbic anti-hippie comment. Hearing these impromptu comments was always unsettling for those students against the war, but everything was taken in stride. Nearly all the students viewed a professor’s political tirade, left or right, with a grudging tolerance. The point/counterpoint aspect of it all often echoed what we were hearing at home from parents and siblings. Yet we never allowed the clash of ideas in the classroom to bring us to the brink of despair or “war,” unlike the atmosphere on today’s college campuses.

There were no space spaces at my journalism alma mater, no padded side rooms with play dough, licorice-flavored binkies, or settings of milk and cookies to soothe over hurt political feelings. The anti-war students agreed to disagree when one professor invited a pro-war Colonel to speak to a class, or when the school sponsored a “Support the Troops” day, code at that time for Support the War.

At some colleges now, the latest trend is banning white male poets like T.S. Eliot and John Milton. This would have been inconceivable to students in the 1970s.

Glen Harlan Reynolds, professor of Constitutional Law at the University of Tennessee, says the term “hate speech” is meaningless because “all speech is equally protected whether it’s hateful or cheerful.” Yet this solid Constitutional definition doesn’t wash with college campus social justice warriors, especially at schools like Swarthmore, Brandeis, UC Berkeley, Smith College, Sarah Lawrence, Bennington, Wesleyan, Oberlin, and Sarah Lawrence College (where, as a critic noted, freaky theater types go who want to be like Yoko Ono).
Students in the 1970s understood that college is a trial run for adulthood. And adulthood, after all, is an Upton Sinclair “Jungle” of clashing opinions and warring ideas. Colleges that seek to protect students from the world of ideas are not colleges at all, but four-year retreats.

 

Thanks to the fatuous indoctrination of left wing academic intelligentsia, college campuses have morphed into a petri dish of bat-shit crazy dysfunction.  

 

There are a few professors—Mike Adams, who is a professor at UNC-Wilmington—who won’t put up with the triggered snowflake drama.  He lets his students know on the first day of class that they have no right not to be offended, and if they don’t like it, they can drop the class.

How ironic that the Free Speech Movement, which was started by left wing radicals on university campuses in the 1960s, against the ‘oppressive establishment’, has now become the oppressive establishment. Learning, healthy skepticism, courage of conviction and thoughtful analysis of the world have been gutted for a more dumbed-down, spineless, unprincipled, nihilist approach. Just the very act of rebelling against or challenging the agenda and the tactics of students who arrive at the college already radicalized, will get you death threats and social media hate speech.

The inmates are running the asylum.

Chuck Lorre’s Rants: A Study in Leftwing Psychosis

To read Lorre’s vanity cards is to witness the death rattle of intellect. Most of them are vulgar, incoherent rants, especially when he vents his spleen over the GOP.  This little gem is the original pre-censored version of his panic over Mitt Romney’s campaign against the Dems beloved Black Jesus, B. Hussein Obama in 2012:

 

This is the epitome of autistic behavior:

 

And oh lord, since President Trump was elected, not only has the left had a complete mental breakdown, but Lorre’s regurgitations reached a new level of bat-shit crazy:

He should have taken his own advice. Since then, he’s morphed into a pile of slobbering leftard mush:

 

 

 

He’s really on a tear:

 

Wow, project much? He unintentionally described the Dem party.  Lorre is an escaped mental patient with a Hollywood megaphone.

He makes Charlie Sheen look sane. His descent into a bizarre, deranged fantasy world is presented every week at the end of each Big Bang Theory, and unless you pause the T.V. you wouldn’t get a good look at how hilariously suicidal he is.

President Trump is reversing the damage Barky did to this country and has accomplished more positive improvements to the economy, foreign policy, and national security in his first two years in office than all the previous White House occupants since Ronald Reagan.

It’s killing leftards like Lorre and it’s a pleasure to watch.

Facebook Suspends Conservative Black Comedian for Posting Hate Messages He Received

Note that they suspend Williams for posting the filth he receives from hateful blacks, but the guilty parties are left alone.

Facebook has suspended conservative comedian Terrence K. Williams for posting screenshots of hate mail he received from liberals.
For the second time in a week, Facebook has suspended a conservative user for posting screenshots of abuse they received on the platform. Shortly after the suspension of columnist and editor Jamie Glazov, who posted screenshots of threats he received, comedian Terrence K. Williams has been temporarily suspended for posting screenshots of abuse and ridicule he received from liberals on the platform.

Williams posted examples of the threats he receives on a regular basis from liberals seemingly angered at the idea of a black conservative. One such message can be seen below:

This image was promptly removed by Facebook as they allegedly don’t allow posts that “bully private individuals.” Williams told Breitbart News, “Facebook always deletes the post and says I’m bullying or harassing the people sending the threats and harassment.”

Shortly after this, Williams received a 24-hour suspension from posting to Facebook:

Examples of the abuse that Williams receives on a regular basis can be seen below. Williams alleges that despite reporting these messages on a regular basis, Facebook has taken no action against the individuals that refer to Williams as a “coon” amongst other racial slurs:

Breitbart News spoke with Williams about his treatment on Facebook and how he deals with attacks from those at the left, seemingly angry at Williams simply for being black and conservative. Williams said that he had become afraid to expose the abuse he was receiving for fear that his Facebook page may suffer as a result. Williams stated: “I dont post all my threats anymore because I fear that Facebook may suspend my account and I have a large platform and people that look forward to my messages every day and I’m going on tour so I don’t want to break any violations and throw everything away so I don’t post all my stuff all the time. Facebook said they would ban me permanently if I kept posting screenshots of the death threats.”

Williams stated that despite multiple reports drawing Facebook’s attention to the screenshots and the abuse he received, Facebook failed to act: “Facebook said that they reviewed the screenshots and said that none of the threats violated Facebook’s guidelines.

 

That’s Facebook’s SOP against conservatives.  Conservative pundit Paul Joseph Watson also got death threats from a muzzie Facebook page, but according to Facebook it ‘doesn’t violate community standards’.

Conservative sites have been suspended over Zuckerberg’s political preferences, but leftie blogs and pro-terrorist Facebook pages and posts are relatively unscathed.

Lauren Southern, a conservative commentator, was banned from Facebook for 30 days because she posted a comment that criticized the left-leaning hierarchy’s habit of censoring opposing viewpoints. The irony is lost on The Zuck.

If you’re going to have a site that supports your opinions, fine.  Just don’t claim to be ‘neutral’ and don’t bother with the façade of “community standards”.

No one does racism like the Left.

Black Republicans like Kenneth Gladney,  James T. Harris,  Bill Randall, Stacey Dash, and Allen West are often treated with obscenities, and horrific violence by so-called “tolerant” lefties.

Not to mention the onslaught of hate toward Michelle Malkin, an American-born woman of Filipino decent, when she took issue with a rapper’s album.

The sin of black Republicans is choosing substance over pigment; which the Left finds intolerable.  They use Occam’s Razor as a mindset; simplistic narrow minded explanations as a substitute for reason and logic.

Stay classy, lefties.

Anti-Semitic Black Lawmaker Makes an Ass Out of Himself at Holocaust Museum

Liberals and radical minorities are the dumbest shits on the planet.

Remember Trayon White Sr., the Washington, D.C. councilman who literally blamed the Jews for snow in D.C. in March? White blamed the “weather manipulation” on “the Rothschilds controlling the climate to create natural disasters they can pay for to own the cities, man.”

White visited the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum Thursday, and according to The Hill’s Will Sommer, it “did not go great!

The Washington Post begins its coverage with this anecdote:

The photo, taken in 1935, depicts a woman in a dark dress shuffling down a street in Norden, Germany. A large sign hangs from her neck: “I am a German girl and allowed myself to be defiled by a Jew.” She is surrounded by Nazi stormtroopers.

D.C. Council member Trayon White Sr. (D-Ward 8) studied the image. “Are they protecting her?”

Lynn Williams, an expert on educational programs at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum and White’s tour guide for the day, stared at the photo.

“No,” she said. “They’re marching her through.”

“Marching through is protecting,” White said.

“I think they’re humiliating her,” Williams replied.

……The group paused before grainy photos of German troops executing Catholic clergy in Poland by firing squad. “Were they actually manufacturing these weapons?” White asked.

Moments later, White was nowhere to be seen.

His staff is about as stupid as he is:

The tour, scheduled to last 90 minutes, was halfway done. Seven of White’s staff members stayed with the guide, who soon was showing them an exhibit on the Warsaw Ghetto. As she explained the walling in of Polish Jews, one aide asked whether it was similar to “a gated community.”

Glazer spoke up.

“Yeah, I wouldn’t call it a gated community,” she said. “More like a prison.”

 

Black radicals have a propensity for anti-Semitic bullshit.

“Touré” , probably the most unequivocal douchebag on MSNBC, (and that’s saying a lot) tweeted his usual excrement in response to a relative of Holocaust survivors:

 

Muzzie racist Louis Farrakhan frequently rants that Jews are controlling everything; banks, the media, corporate America, and the music industry.

White liberals aren’t much better.  According to John Kerry, you can’t be Jewish and democratic, and you can’t be black and Republican.

Just think, Trayon White is the best the Dems have to offer.

Barbara Bush Dead at 92

Via Fox News

 

With her cloud of snow-white hair, signature three strand pearls and compelling presence, Barbara Bush’s image was what she laughingly called “everybody’s grandmother.” But the feisty, outspoken Bush was also a tireless advocate for literacy , an author, experienced campaigner and both wife and mother of a U.S. president.

Bush, 92, died Tuesday, shortly after her family announced she was in failing health and would decline further medical treatment in favor of “comfort care.” There were no details of her specific health problems.

The announcement was made in a statement from the office of former President George H.W. Bush.

“A former First Lady of the United States of America and relentless proponent of family literacy, Barbara Pierce Bush passed away Tuesday, April 17, 2018 at the age of 92. She is survived by her husband of 73 years, President George H. W. Bush; five children and their spouses; 17 grandchildren; seven great grandchildren; and her brother, Scott Pierce. She was preceded in death by her second child, Pauline Robinson ‘Robin’ Bush, and her siblings Martha Rafferty and James R. Pierce.”

 

I liked her, but Barbara Bush did have her questionable moments, though. In 2010, she declared Bubba Clinton ‘likable’, and she and Bush Sr, couldn’t understand why the Tea Party was so popular.

And of course, the leftwing douchebags wished her a slow death after it was announced that she was in failing health.

Tributes to her life and memory, HERE.
