Ah, breakfast, for the mind……….

As you enjoy your breakfast of three scrambled eggs, mixed with, smoked sausage, crumbled bacon, grated sharp white cheddar, diced jalapenos, and a nice dusting of the Flat Iron Pepper Hatch Valley Green on top, all washed down with the Black Rifle Coffee Company offering of your choice, let your mind absorb this bit of  brilliance from Animal Magnetism

It’s that time of year again, when high school and college graduates all over the country are trying on caps and gowns and making post-graduation plans. Today, for the sixth year, I will present here my own carefully prepared commencement speech to those grads – presented here because there’s damn little chance of my being asked to deliver it in person to a group of impressionable yutes.

“Graduates of the Class of 2020, let me be the first to extend to you my congratulations on this, your day of entry into reality.

For the last four years you have been working towards this goal, towards this day. That’s a good thing. One of the most important skills you will ever need, one of the most important ways to achieve success in the world into which you are about to enter, is the ability to formulate goals, to plan how to achieve those goals, and to see things through until you reach those goals.

Now, before you go out to enjoy the rest of this day, before you go out to celebrate this goal you have achieved, let me tell you a few harsh truths about the world you’re entering. 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.

Now, please, go read the whole thing

Sooo, Snowflakes want no consequences for missing work/class?

Entitled, on steroids!

Syracuse University suggested that students who skip class to protest should be excused and not penalized in any way.

Throughout the semester, protesters at Syracuse have caused continued disruption on campus, only recently being compelled by coronavirus concerns to end their occupation of a campus administrative building.

Campus Reform reported on Correspondent Justine Murray’s ongoing fear from professors and students, as she alleges that professors are ‘targeting her,’ calling her a “right-wing agitator” online due to her coverage of the protests and other events at the school. Murray says students also threatened to harm her as she overheard one student tell friends, “I’ll go confront her and I’ll call you when it’s done” after referring to her as an “exploiter.”

According to The Daily Orange, protesters with the #NotagainSU movement- a group that allegedly fights racism- gained support from the school’s employees. After a week of demanding “academic amnesty,” Interim Vice Chancellor and Provost John Liu encouraged the school to excuse protestors for missing class and give them three weeks to make up missed assignments.

So, again, these little bastards basically want amnesty, from any personal responsibility. How about, NO! How about they attend class, do their class work, show up for their jobs, and make arrangements for their “activism” on their own time? And if they cannot handle that, well, bye!

Student Government of Dickinson College bans Hummus made in Israel

This, to these fanatics is inclusive

Late last year, the student senate at Dickinson College in Pennsylvania passed a ban against Sabra Hummus on campus as part of the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement against Israeli products.

In the student resolution titled “A Resolution To Endorse the Banning of Sabra Hummus from the Devil’s Den” students moved to cease the sale of Sabra Hummus on campus once the existing product sold out. The students argued that such a ban would follow the “College’s commitment to sustainability and inclusivity.”

Again, being exclusionary is inclusive somehow. So, why do these fools think Israeli hummus is bad?

“Sabra Hummus is a brand partially owned by the Strauss Group, which is a company that financially and morally supports the Golani and Givati bridge of the Israeli Defense Force (IDF),” stated the resolution.

“These brigades of the IDF commit human rights abuses against Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza and the support of Sabra products helps the Strauss Group support the Israeli Defence Force brigade which maintains a cycle of oppression for Palestinian people in violation of international law,” it continued.

In reality, of course, the IDF defends innocent Israelis against terrorists, and is not oppressing Palestinians. Israel is a free nation that honors the rights of all people who live there. But, again the left still loathes Israel, and, the college itself told the student Nazis, ah government to pound sand

Despite the student’s decision, the college took a firm stance against the boycott.

“Dickinson encourages students to voice their opinions and affect change through our governance structure. We are pleased that the discussion about this issue at the Student Senate meeting was civil and that competing opinions were articulated,” Dickinson clarified in a statement on the matter.

“As an institution that deeply values global diversity and civil discussion and debate, Dickinson opposes this boycott. In 2014, we rejected the call from the American Studies Association to boycott Israeli universities and instead maintained our ongoing relationships with three Israeli institutions,” the university continued.

Great to see the school did not cave to the mouth breathers

 

 

So, if Black people hate Jews…………

…it is the fault of White People?

University of New Hampshire physics professor Chanda Prescod-Weinstein took to Twitter on New Year’s Eve to explain why anti-Semitism is exclusively a “white” problem, and why it is inappropriate to discuss anti-Semitic acts committed by black people.

Prescod-Weinstein began her tweetstorm by explaining that it is “anti-Black” and “dangerous both to non-Jewish Black people and to Jews” to consider violent attacks against Jews by Black people “equivalent” to “white antisemitism.”

“Antisemitism in the United States, historically, is a white Christian problem, and if any Black people have developed antisemitic views it is under the influence of white gentiles,” the professor clarified.

Stupid on steroids

The professor goes on to explain how “white Jews adopted whiteness as a social praxis and harmed Black people in the process,” and that “Some Black people have problematically blamed Jewishness for it.”

“There is no systemic Black on Jewish violence,” the professor clarified before insisting that “Putting more police and people with guns outside of synagogues may make white Jews feel safer but it will endanger Jews of color, especially Black Jews and Middle Eastern Jews.”

The delusion is stunning, and, if you head over to Campus Reform, your head might explode on how deep in the Pit of Idiocy this woman is. Please take note of how she attaches no responsibility on any individual for their actions. It is all about the “group” they belong to. Again, the left dismisses any for of individualism out of hand.

Why some people should not be professors

And, when I say “some” people, I mean knuckle draggers like this

After quoting a popular Bible verse to back up his assertion about the tenets of Christianity in his college essay, a student at Rutgers University-New Brunswick says he was told to avoid quoting Bible verses in academic papers because of the “separation of church and state” and the potential to offend non-Christians.

Separation of church and state? Was this professor dropped on her head numerous times as a child? The first amendment clearly states that Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion. So, what this professor is saying is that the student is actually Congress and his opinion is, somehow, a law!

Math is no longer math because, WEstern Culture appropriated it or something

Stupid people, truly stupid! Via Moonbattery comes the latest in indoctrination

The Seattle school district is planning to infuse all K-12 math classes with ethnic-studies questions that encourage students to explore how math has been “appropriated” by Western culture and used in systems of power and oppression, a controversial move that puts the district at the forefront of a movement to “rehumanize” math.

The district’s proposed framework outlines strands of discussion that teachers should incorporate into their classes. One leads students into exploring math’s roots “in the ancient histories of people and empires of color.” Another asks how math and science have been used to oppress and marginalize people of color, and who holds power in a math classroom.

Another theme focuses on resistance and liberation, encouraging students to recognize the mathematical practices and contributions of their own communities, and looking at how math has been used to free people from oppression.

Seattle’s proposals land as schools all over the country are discussing the role ethnic studies should play in their curricula. In most places, if schools offer ethnic studies at all, it’s usually in a stand-alone course in high school. But increasingly, schools and districts are starting to sprinkle ethnic studies across the K-12 spectrum. Seattle is taking a highly unusual approach by weaving the field’s multicultural and political questions not just through all grade levels, but into all subjects.

Leftism destroys everything it touches

 

If a Chick-fil-A on your college campus is your biggest problem…………….

Then, I gotta say, you get it pretty good, so why don’t you go study, or find something  worthwhile to occupy your time you dumb fuck!

Purdue University slammed protests from students and faculty Friday of its Chick-fil-A dining service arriving in fall 2020, clarifying that the school would not “ever seriously consider such an action.”

Jo Boileau, student body president at the Indiana school, claimed that the restaurant was problematic for Purdue’s LGBT community, saying “as an openly gay student, this is something I’m confronting on a daily basis,” according to The Lafayette Journal & Courier.

No, oh no, Chick-fil-A is not problematic, not at all. What is problematic is your whiny, self-absorbed obsession with pretending you are somehow a victim!

A motion by the equality and diversity committee, part of Purdue’s university senate, aims to make the school’s commercial endeavors “uphold the same values and promote inclusivity with their policies, hiring practices and actions.”

Inclusivity you say? How about those students who want a Chick-fl-A on campus? Does your inclusivity include them? No? Then fuck you and your fake interest in inclusion! You do not seek inclusion, you seek control to impose your “values” on everyone else. So please piss off!

So, how soon can we just start sending diapers to “woke” college students?

File this under Good Freaking Grief!

Indiana University Southeast is encouraging students to say “ouch!” to others who use “offensive” language, in order to convey that the words “had a negative impact” on them.

The university publishes and maintains a guide instructing students on how to “reduce bias in language” and offers some tactics for responding to others who use language they find offensive. One of these  tactics is to “say ‘ouch!’” to others who utter “stereotypes, offensive or biased comments.” The university asserts that saying “ouch!” in these situations is an effective tool “simply to convey what was said had a negative impact on you, regardless if it was directed toward you.”

The university offered examples of language that may require such a response including phrases like “man and wife” or simply “wives,” as well as “mothering. These phrases can supposedly “imply one group dominating over another group.” The university suggests instead that students use phrases like “husband and wife,” “spouses,” and “parenting.”

Egads!

College pushes Perpetual Victimhood Syndrome and Eternal Bitterness Disorder because “social justice”

College sucks right now, and has for years. It is a huge money grab that indoctrinates rather than educates. It leaves many with massive student loan debt, hatred for “Whiteness”, “Toxic Masculinity” America, diversity of thought and an addiction to pretending to be a victim. Take this latest example at Campus Reform

 

The University of Rhode Island sponsored a “Social Justice in Higher Education” conference, with speakers discussing topics such as “White Accountability,” “Addressing Microaggressions,” and more.

The conference was put on Wednesday by the New England College Personnel Association, with the University of Rhode Island being a co-sponsor. The focus of this year’s conference is specifically promoting “social justice education” and giving schools tips on how to educate students better on “anti-oppressive, liberatory, and critical frameworks,” according to the description.

The conference hosted various sessions based on social justice education, such as the following:

  • “The Cost of Inclusion: Addressing the Class Struggle When Engaging Students Outside the Classroom”
  • “Supporting a Culture of White Accountability on Campus”
  • “When the Conversation Gets Quiet — 10 Ways to Facilitate Discussions on Sensitive Social Justice Issues with First Year Students”
  • “Enacting Racial Justice on Campus by Effectively Addressing Microaggressions”
  • “What is our social justice responsibility in teaching white students to become civically engaged?”
  • “Lessons in Allyship: Engaging White Colleagues in Anti-Racist Professional Development Efforts”

FINALLY! Donors balk at sending money to university of Georgia over radical racist remarks by teaching assistant

Campus Reform has itCampus Reform has it

Some University of Georgia alumni say they will not donate to the school again after administrators didn’t take any disciplinary action against a teaching assistant who made controversial comments such as “some white people may have to die for black communities to be made whole in this struggle to advance to freedom.”

Irami Osei-Frimpong, a UGA teaching assistant on whom Campus Reform has reported multiple times,  previously made comments such as “some white people may have to die for black communities to be made whole in this struggle to advance to freedom” and “fighting white people is a skill.” The TA was accused of intentionally omitting a 2011 trespassing arrest from his admission application and not disclosing his attendance at the University of Chicago, which led to a university investigation.

However, as reported by Campus Reform, the judiciary panel, which dealt with Osei-Frimpong, ruled there were no “facts which are material” left out of the TA’s application to the school. As a result, Osei Frimpong faced no disciplinary measures.

And finally, we see some backlash from alumni, parents, and donors

“UGA won’t get a donation from me! NO! I will send my money directly to my niece on campus,” Dr. Catherine Sullivan, a graduate of UGA, told Campus Reform. “UGA has some major explanations to give and I don’t want to hear them! This is totally unacceptable!”

Sullivan also accused UGA of having “double standards,” when it comes to issues regarding conservative and liberal speech.

Another donor who told Campus Reform he wishes to be unnamed said that he hasn’t donated to the university since the Osei Frimpong incident began: “I haven’t donated to the university and don’t intend to until he’s held responsible for his actions. The university is trying to sweep this under the rug and judging by the lack of coverage in the mainstream media they were successful.”

The Left and their insidious schemes to disarm police

These people are demented

The student senate at the University of California-Davis recently decided against disarming its campus police force by a narrow 6-5 vote.

Several individuals who voted against the measure did not disagree with the principle but did have issues with the resolution’s wording, according to The California Aggie.

So, who are these fools that support such idiocy?

One supporter of the measure, sociology Ph.D. candidate Blu Buchanan, told the California Aggie that “university police officers frequently do violence to people of color, folks with disabilities and queer and trans folks on our campuses.”

The issue of police has been a contentious one in the UC-Davis community during this past spring semester.

UC-Davis English professor Joshua Clover garnered national media attention for anti-police tweets that he has made in the past, which have included messages such as,  “I mean, it’s easier to shoot cops when their backs are turned, no?” and, “I am thankful that every living cop will one day be dead, some by their own hand, some by others, too many of old age #letsnotmakemore.”

Lots more at Campus Reform, go read it, and do not be surprised if you find that the radical leftists of Black Lives Matter are behind much of this

A student petition demands that Yale University disarm its police officers and make a donation to Black Lives Matter in response to “state-sanctioned violence”.

petition circulating Yale’s student body and addressed to Yale University President Paul Salovey calls for the immediate disarmament of campus police in the wake of a shooting on Tuesday

“Armed campus police are a risk to the students they are sworn to protect and to the communities in which schools reside,” the petition states. “There is an epidemic of police violence and police brutality in this country, and this shooting all too tragically shows that Yale is not immune to this issue. We will not allow the Yale Police Department to contribute to this epidemic by acting violently against members of the community that we have chosen from all over this country and the world.”

Ah yes, the  police are shooting Black people in the streets with impunity narrative. It is a false narrative, easily disproved, but the BLM leadership is us to get social justice power and money, and to further leftism. 

Loyalty Oaths?

Animal notes that professors are being required to prove their loyalty, to “diversity”

Remember when the idea of a university requiring a loyalty oath would have been abhorrent to… well, almost everyone?  Well, not any more.  Excerpt:

The University of California has published a loving, celebratory  timelinedescribing the reaction among faculty and the ultimate repeal of the loyalty oath.  Loyalty oaths were very, very bad, back then.

But loyalty oaths are back again, and this time, according to the progressive deep thinkers, they are good. Because it is not loyalty to the United States, but rather loyalty to the ideology of “diversity” that is being demanded. Christian Schneider writes in the New York Post:

Consider the University of California, Los Angeles. To be considered for tenure-track positions, applicants are required to write a full statement outlining their commitment to diversity. According to UCLA guidelines, the extent to which a professor promotes equity, diversity and inclusion is a key factor in making progress on the tenure track.

Promoting these ideals “is inseparable from how the University of California conceives of ‘merit,’ ” the school says. UC Riverside, UC San Diego and UC Berkeley all require similar diversity statements.

Of course, in reality they are not looking for “diversity”, or “inclusiveness” They are looking for, conformity

One of the worst things about this particular species of idiocy is the shallow falseness of their commitment to “diversity.”  What UCLA is looking for is not “diversity” in any meaningful sense; the very concept of a loyalty oath illustrates that very plainly.  They are looking for diversity in melanin content and sexual preference, but what they absolutely will not tolerate under any circumstances is the one thing a university should take great pains to provide:  Intellectual diversity.

Precisely!

Beware the Gender Unicorns

You can no longer parody the left, volume 322

Students received a “gender unicorn” and “LGBTQ-Inclusive Language” at a University of North Georgia “safe zone training” on Tuesday.

The school invited students to a “university-wide training program committed to making the University of North Georgia a safer, more inclusive environment for members of the LGBTQ+ community” earlier in March, according to an email obtained by Campus Reform. The email went on to describe the March 22 through April 3 trainings as opportunities for students to “examine prejudice, assumptions, and privilege.”

Notice how the leftists have bastardized the word safe? This is something they consistently do, they change the meanings of words to suit their goals

Campus Reform attended one of the training sessions held on March 26 on the UNG-Dahlonega campus.

During the training, attendees were given handouts that featured a “Gender Unicorn,” which was used to differentiate one’s “gender identity,” “gender expression,” “sex assigned at birth,” and how they were “physically” and “emotionally attracted.” All categories had an “other” option.

Good Freaking Grief!

The Left’s new “Tolerance” reeks of naked bigotry

Via Campus Reform

The Pride Center at Oregon State University called for Veteran Student Association (VSA) members to be barred from moving into an on-campus student lounge, stating that it is concerned about the veteran students’ “patriotism” and the “wellbeing” of students.

In a since-deleted open letter to the OSU community posted on Facebook on March 15, the pride center and the LGBTQ+ Multicultural Support Network said that they oppose moving the VSA into the Student Experience Center Involvement Lounge on campus.

The involvement lounge is a space for students to find out how to get involved on campus, according to its webpage.

The Pride Center, which is an entity of the Department of Diversity and Cultural Engagement, stated that their members would be “vulnerable” to the consequences of deciding to let the vet group occupy that space.

“The communities that our organizations serve are vulnerable to the ideological and practical consequences that this decision would bring about,” the Pride Center and LGBTQ group stated.

More verbal sewage that, when you boil it down, is simply hatred, nothing more

Parents should really forgo sending their kids to college

Pay tens of thousands of dollars, or more, to send your kids to indoctrination camps where they will be taught to hate people who are the wrong color?? REALLY?

The Graduate English Center at the City University of New York is set to host an event on March 22,  titled, “Refusing Institutional Whiteness: Possibilities, Alternatives, and Beyond.”

The event’s description states that “whiteness continues to be a crucial problem in our English department.” The Graduate English Center brought “together a group of scholars and thinkers in a range of disciplines in order to help us imagine, discuss, and produce new ways of resisting whiteness and envisioning alternatives in institution settings.”

Truly disgusting. We are allowing demented hate mongers to spew this garbage?

No Tide Pods No Justice?

Apparently there is now a “right” to laundry products…………

Useless moonbats attending Sarah Lawrence College (annual tuition: $55,900), no doubt at someone else’s expense, have issued a long list of demands. Like a lot of greedy, arrogant nonsense, the demands are justified by the preposterous lie that the supposedly marginalized (which mostly means nonwhites but also includes militant sexual deviants) are somehow put upon. From the list:

• Free winter housing with a “communal kitchen” containing “dry goods from the food pantry”
• Free laundry detergent and fabric softener for all students
• Special housing for students of color
• On-campus jobs prioritize the hiring of international students
• Prevent students of color from being educated about history by “racist white professors”
• Reject funding from the Charles Koch Foundation and review the tenure of “racist” professor Sam Abrams
• All students have unlimited access to therapy sessions
• Permanent funding for minority student unions that is not paid for by the student body

Why would “students of color” need “special housing”? They are people, no different from other races, so…. Of course, I am forgetting that seeing all people as equal regardless of skin color is now RAAAAACIST!

Cops do their job, snowflakes triggered!

Via Bearing Arms

However, after seeing this, I’m glad the University of Chicago isn’t on his list of preferred schools.

On Monday, Chicago police apprehended several suspects involved in an armed robbery who had fled from officers onto the University of Chicago’s campus.

The crisis, which prompted an alert from the university urging the campus community to shelter in place, also prompted some students to go into hysterics on social media.

They weren’t worried about the dangers of gun violence—no, they were furious at police.

From calling them “pigs” to demanding their disarmament, some students expressed fury at both the Chicago and University of Chicago police forces, who had come to protect and serve.

What’s more, even though no students were harmed and the suspects were arrested without a single shot being fired, some students began calling for the abolition of police.

“there were militarized cops (literally carrying assault rifles) crawling all over campus looking for armed, african-american men. a black student could’ve worn a striped shirt (like one of the robbers)… reached for a phone at the wrong time… etc. and could have been shot,” one student tweeted. “Anywho … disarm/abolish the police.:

“UCPD is absolutely worthless thank you for coming to my ted talk,” tweeted another student.

A third offered this on social media: “dear god we’re gonna have to listen to c*llege r*publicans talk about how this proves we need more cops.”

This reporter reached out to several of the commenters regarding what kind of solution they would support instead of the police, but only received the following answer from one student: “We should arm the working class, disarm the pigs.”

Ah, young leftists speaking truth bull shit to power. Who wants to bet that these pinheads would be railing against police had one of these thugs the cops were chasing would have hurt a student?

Well this school is taking security seriously

They are not playing around

Another Florida school is actively taking precautions against shooters by hiring armed combat veterans to patrol its campus, a year after the tragic Parkland shooting.

The Manatee School for the Arts, a charter school, will employ two combat veterans to protect the school and prevent any persons attempting to shoot up the school, according to HuffPost. The guards will both carry a handgun and military-style long gun, WWSB TV reported.

“If someone walks onto this campus, they’re going to be shot and killed,” said school principal Bill Jones, according to the Bradenton Herald. “We’re not going to talk with them. We’re not going to negotiate. We are going to put them down, as quickly as possible.”

One guard with 15 years of infantry experience has patrolled the campus for a number of months, HuffPost reported. A second guard will patrol the campus starting at the end of February.
