Covid-19 Death Estimates Likely Way too High

from the College Fix:

Med prof: There are ‘major problems’ with current coronavirus mortality estimates

Death rate ‘biased upward by a substantial amount’

As coronavirus hysteria dominates the globe, scientists and health experts and professors have taken to major news outlets citing shocking data and grim projections to stress the disease’s purported severity. But some academics and medical experts believe that the threat of the disease is being wildly overblown based on what we know about it so far.

Jay Bhattacharya, a professor of medicine at Stanford University, told The College Fix that there are “at least two major problems with current estimates of the COVID-19 mortality rate,” and that the estimated death rate is likely far too high.

Bhattacharya, along with Stanford medical professor Eran Bendavid, wrote in an op-ed in The Wall Street Journal late last month that popular assumptions of the fatality rate of COVID-19 could be “orders of magnitude” too high. read more

Podcast – More College Censorship – Trangendering is Child Abuse

by: Brent Smith

More College Censorship
Censorship is alive and well on college campuses. So says the College fix, and anyone with eyes can see they’re right.

This time a conservative group had their Halloween display taken down after only being up for several hours last week. Of course no one knows anything about, but the Young Americans for Freedom club vows to get to the bottom of it.

By the way – they’re display were gravestones with the words “Socialism Kills” on them.

Trangendering is Child Abuse
Most have heard of the tragic story of the 7 year old Texas boy whose mother wants to change into a girl. And worse is a jury, in Texas no less, said that would fine.

Luckily a Judge overturned the jury and put a stay on the case, giving rights back to both parents. The father objects. What a Puritan – right.

Simply put, this mother should be locked up for child abuse. read more

The Only Fascists in the Classroom are Leftists

from the College Fix:

I called for diversity of thought. My peers compared me to a neo-Nazi.

As I took part in a recent student leadership board meeting for the Department of Political Science at Boston University, a group that works to advise faculty on ways to improve, I offered some advice: the department could use more intellectual diversity.

I suggested more debates in the classroom, as opposed to what I had witnessed in my three years at the school, that being an assumption during class that everyone agrees. read more

Planned College Impeachment Over Two Words is Cancelled

from the College Fix:

Student diversity officials call off impeachment for ‘illegal aliens’ remark to avoid lawsuit

Mad at university for not addressing ‘hate’ online

Student government officials who threatened to impeach one of their leaders for using the phrase “illegal aliens” have backed off, citing fears for their “safety and wellbeing.”

They are also afraid of being sued for First Amendment violations.

Senators lashed out at Emporia State University administrators Wednesday night for not responding to the “hate” directed at them for the impeachment threat, according to The Bulletin student newspaper. read more

Another Teacher Exposed as a Leftist Radical

In the days of old, when I was in school, I carried with me a small audio recorder. Back then, we had these mini cassette tapes. Many people used them for dictation. I took mine to class. When the teacher began to speak on a topic I thought might be of particular import, I switched it on while I was taking notes, just in case I missed something.

It was no smartphone, but still a very handy tool. Not once do I recall a teacher or professor telling me to “turn that thing off” – that I didn’t have permission to record in class. In fact, most thought it a pretty good idea.

That was then – when teachers were paid to teach, not advocate. To this day, I don’t believe I knew the political affiliation of a single one. Doubtful a student today could make the same claim.

Today is an entirely different atmosphere, in college, and increasingly in high school classrooms. It seems today, teachers are doing everything but teaching. They join and sometimes organize protests, marches and sit-ins. They advocate for every wacky liberal cause imaginable, and from the sound of some, they appear to not know enough to teach the subject for which they are being paid. But really, many are being paid to indoctrinate – not teach. read more

The Fantasy of Racial Injustice

by: the Common Constitutionalist

We’ve heard it throughout the presidential campaign – that Republicans are racists – conservatives are racists – anyone who dares speak up or speak out against the myth that America is a racist nation.

Are there racists in America? You bet there are, and I’ll lay you odds that there are more racist blacks today per capita than there are whites. But we’re not allowed to say things like that. This is too controversial and may cause leftists to go weak in the knees and tremble in fear.

There is nowhere in this great country of ours where the fantasy of racial injustice is more prevalent than America’s college campuses.

This has become typical of the new University experience today. Practically everyday on some college campus there are one or more demonstrations, sit-ins, walk-outs or protests, bemoaning the fate of some minority group.

Being that discrimination is apparently so commonplace, one would think it would be easy to find instance after instance of these violations. That seems reasonable, does it not? read more
