Liberal Professor Compared To Hitler

from The Daily Caller:

Dr. Jordan B. Peterson, a Canadian university professor, identifies as a classic British liberal, but his opposition to the progressive shift in higher education has led media outlets, activists, and fellow professors to label him “far right” and compare him to Adolf Hitler.

In a conversation with The Daily Caller, Dr. Peterson discussed how such labels and libelous attacks are used to shut down debate and to “contribute to this increased polarization.”

“We’re in a situation now where if you disagree vociferously with the radical left, then you’re immediately regarded as an exemplar of the opposite extreme,” he told TheDC. “That’s not good, and in my case it’s certainly not true.” read more

Think College is Expensive Now – Wait Until its Free

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

Scroll Down for Audio Version

There is a well known saying which most of us have heard. It goes: “You think it’s expensive now. Wait until it’s free.”

We heard it from those darned conservatives and fiscal hawks prior to the passage of ObamaCare, and the left claimed we were crying wolf. We said: “you think health insurance is expensive now – wait until it’s free.” And the left laughed and called us fearmongers.

They on the left knew that ObamaCare, the government manipulation of the health insurance market, would actually save us money, because – you know – that’s what always happens when the public sector injects itself into the private sector.

And son-of-a-gun if they weren’t right. On average, everyone saved over $2500, just as it was advertised by Obama. Oh wait…that must have happened on Earth 2, where Hillary Clinton is president.

Here on Earth 1, everything the government gets involved in always ends up costing more – a lot more. ObamaCare is just one example. Another that most of are all too aware of is the cost of higher education. read more

Peace-Loving Communists Attack Conservatives

from CFACT:

Southern Protest Pic 1 Cropped

ANTIFA “marks” and attacks CFACT students but fails to stop Lauren Southern talk at U of Minnesota

Lauren Southern talks to a packed room about free speech.

Multiple CFACT students were “marked” and assaulted by masked ANTIFA protesters outside a talk given by Lauren Southern, a conservative and libertarian Canadian political commentator, author, journalist, and Youtube sensation. Southern was hosted by the CFACT club at the University of Minnesota to discuss the evils of socialism and the importance of protecting free speech.

“The protesters started peacefully enough,” remarked Adam Bowen, a junior. “They even had a 4 piece marching band that was actually really good.”

Masked protesters waited, however, until some of the police presence had died down after the talk by Southern concluded. They then proceeded to mark and ambush departing CFACT event organizers. Nathan Amundson and Mitch Bendis,responsible for live streaming the event, were ambushed by a half dozen masked ANTIFA members as they left the venue loaded down with a large and expensive video camera and a box of event supplies. read more

More Infiltration by the Muslim Brotherhood

from the American Spectator:

The Muslim “Brotherhood [MB] is traditionally a reformist, gradualist movement [which] is working on social change,” stated the Egyptian MB member Amr Darrag at a Georgetown University panellast month. With that, Darrag and his fellow speaker, the British-Iraqi MB operative Anas Altikriti, added to Georgetown’s longstanding history of enabling the MB’s deceitful use of liberal language to mask totalitarian goals.

Georgetown’s Saudi-funded Prince Alwaleed bin Talal Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding (ACMCU) hosted the event, which was titled: “Post-Arab Spring Middle East: Political Islam and Democracy.” A pro-Islamist bent was inevitable given that the moderator was ACMCU director Jonathan Brown. This professor has his own professional links to MB groups and is the son-in-law of convicted terrorist Sami Al Arian. In February, Brown was widely criticized after he gave a speech at a MB think tank justifying the practice of slavery within Islam. read more

A Little Justice comes to College Campuses

by: the Common Constitutionalist

It’s been a busy news week, with headlines being dominated by the ridiculous flap over the NFL and their spoiled and apparently oppressed players – who are also part of the 1 percent.

If you had little interest in that, there was also the unsurprising stand-out victory of Judge Roy Moore over Luther Strange. Congrats to Alabama voters for not buying the bullcrap Strange, Trump, Pence and McConnell were selling. Although I believe Trump was sold a bill of goods and Pence was obligated to “have his back.”

But this is what elections are supposed to look like in America – where the good guy wins – or at least the better guy. Mo Brooks what the best guy – Judge Moore, the good guy – and Doctor Strange, the establishment villain. He’s not a real doctor. That’s a play on words.

But through the noise of the headlines, there was an important and little reported event that happened recently regarding higher education and beating back the politically correct takeover of American colleges. That is, if it’s not already too late.

Late last week, lacking much fanfare, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, figuratively tore up  the Obama-era “rules on how colleges should deal with accusations of sexual assault and issued new interim guidelines on the hot-button issue.” read more

Leftist Latinos Demand End to Free Speech

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Scroll Down for Audio Version

It’s a fact – possibly provable by science – that what little common sense many high school kids have, rapidly fades away when they go off to college. With any and all parental supervision removed, students believe they have license to be stupid.

Such it was at Cornell University, when a student and member of the Zeta Psi fraternity was heard chanting, “build that wall.”

The chant was heard, “near the Latino Living Center early Wednesday morning, less than 24 hours after President Donald Trump ordered the end of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals [DACA] program,” writes the Cornell Daily Sun.

To clarify the above statement, as the Cornell Daily Sun will surely not, President Trump did not “end” the DACA program. He suspended it for six months to allow the correct branch of government, the Legislative, to craft a lawful solution.

They, like all other leftist journals, would prefer their readers to believe racist Trump just ended it. I’m not defending Trump’s decision. As it was an illegal action, I think he should have just ended it and left it at that, but I’m not president. read more

The Best of Fake-Hate

by The College Fix:

Hate-crime hoaxes had a banner year

During the 2016-17 school year, campuses across the nation were plagued by numerous hate crime reports — but so many turned out to be fake.

Often, students confessed to fabricating the incident or submitting a baseless report after police found no evidence. Sometimes they refused to even cooperate with police, making an investigation impossible. Other times officers caught the “victims” red-handed in their own web of lies.

Many examples were inspired by students trying to create and push the narrative of a spike in hate crimes after Donald Trump was elected president.

Here are some of the most outrageous examples from campuses and college students over the past school year. read more

Students and Faculty Turn on Professor

from Heat Street: 

Snowflakes of Color

The faculty at Evergreen State College sent a letter to students Friday saying they stand behind the protesters who have wreaked havoc on the campus this week and plan to pursue disciplinary action against the target of their demonstrations, Prof. Brett Weinstein.

The Washington college of about 4,000 students erupted in protests last week after Weinstein, a biology professor, told student activists he did not agree with their “Day of Absence” plans. The Day of Absence usually consists of students of color leaving the campus for the day, to bring awareness to their presence and issues. This year, however, student activists wanted all white students and faculty to leave for the day. Weinstein, who supported the Day of Absence tradition in the past, called this year’s plan an act of oppression. read more
