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

WND Exclusive – The Latest Snowflake F-Bomb Tantrum

I always believed that being a liberal was the easiest thing on earth – that it takes virtually no thought at all. Apparently, I was wrong. Turns out that being a modern-day leftist is hard – keeping up with daily shifts in gender, microaggressions, trigger words, safe space locations, etc. I’m tired (and disappointed) just thinking about it.

Being a constitutional, fiscal and cultural conservative is much easier. Nothing of our core beliefs ever changes, because they never need to.

But these days, the left must always stay on top of their game. They can never take a break from their out-of control correctness, because someone even more PC will be there to call them out, as is the case this time.

Evidently, the Political Union at the University of Chicago didn’t describe an upcoming event properly, and this offended many snowflakes on campus. read more

Building the University of Diversity

by: the Common Constitutionalist

College may soon become like high school. All you have to do is show up and you’re accepted. How so, you may ask?

It seems many colleges and universities have begun dropping the SAT/ACT requirement for admission. And not just at no-name schools, like Muddy Water State (not a real school). No – major colleges like Columbia and George Washington University have joined over 850 colleges and universities who have curtailed the importance of or outright dropped these standardized tests.

These schools are instead taking a more “holistic” approach when screening students for admission. “When Columbia University took the plunge earlier this summer, dropping the SAT subject tests and SAT and ACT writing portions as application requirements starting next year, it became the first member of the Ivy League to do both.”

George Washington University has dropped testing for most freshman. This is great news for those in high school, no longer having to stress out over there SAT score, or pay again to take it over in an attempt to improve their scores.

But why abandon the time honored standardized test – why after all these years switch to the “holistic” approach? read more

Genderless Bathrooms – It’s the Agenda Stupid

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Our country has fallen head first into the crapper when people from the left and right can’t see the problem with letting transgendered men and women use whatever bathroom, locker room and shower they wish.

What the heck is wrong with us? There seems to be so very few left with the combination of courage and conviction. Instead it’s been replaced with cowardice and expedience. And ditto regarding common sense.

Let’s first set the record straight on one thing. A transgendered man is still physically, anatomically a man and vice versa for a woman. The dictionary definition of transgender is: “noting or relating to a person whose gender identity does not correspond to that person’s biological sex assigned at birth.”

But this is not how we think of the transgendered. More likely when the average person hears the term transgender, they automatically think of someone who was once a man and is now a woman and vice versa. Obviously, according to the definition, this is not correct. read more

Iron Mike Ditka Pays the Price for Being Conservative

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Sheeesh! This is second time this week I’ve written about Rush Limbaugh. It does have to do with politics, but thankfully it doesn’t concern the presidential election or the never-ending primary season. I know it’s of vital importance, but frankly the never ending daily doses of it are getting a bit old.

So let’s instead turn our attention to something sports related – sports as it relates to politics.

Some of you may remember that Rush Limbaugh did a short stint as a commentator on the sports network ESPN. If you don’t, that’s okay. It was after all 13 years ago. In 2000 Limbaugh was passed over for a seat on the ABC Monday Night Football crew. They instead went with Dennis Miller. That worked out well – NOT.

Three years later he was offered a position on ESPN’s flagship broadcast, “NFL Sunday Night Countdown,” joining Chris Berman, Tom Jackson, Steve Young and Michael Irvin. I recall Rush telling his radio audience that they told him he could speak about anything – that there would be virtually no filter. And he believed them – silly guy. read more

From The Rooney Rule to the Looney Rule

by: the Common Constitutionalist

In 2003 the National Football League instituted a hiring practice called the Rooney Rule. The rule was named for Dan Rooney, the owner of the Pittsburgh Steelers and chairman of the NFL diversity committee and a big liberal. The rule mandates that every NFL team interview at least one minority candidate for a head coaching and executive positions. By minority, they actually only mean black applicants.

The reason for this mandate is that about 70% of all NFL players are black whereas virtually all head coaches and G.M.s are white. To Rooney and the diversity committee, this would not do. It was like black players doing their white masters bidding all over again. This new rule was a perfect solution for the guilty white liberal owners.

After its institution, the rule was immediately criticized by activists and academia that it was mere window dressing as it only applied to head coaching positions, not to assistants. At no time has anyone on the committee pondered the merit based system of hiring that has worked for so many years and produced some of sports greatest head coaches. read more

Podcast – Mass Assault of Women in Germany by Muslim Migrants

In this episode I discuss Germany’s massive Muslim immigrant problem where almost 70 percent of all migrants are Muslim men. These innocent refugees travel through German cities at night in gangs of hundreds and sometimes 1000 or more, preying on young German women. These gangs of Muslim men chase down unsuspecting girls, corner them, rob and viciously assault them – and its all thanks to the welcoming policies of Chancellor Angela Merkel and her desire to let them all in. This is what may be in store for America if refugees are allowed to pour into our country. read more

Podcast – Justice Scalia is a Racist – Democrats Support Refugee Resettlement – A Ramadan Christmas

In this episode I discuss Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia’s disagreement to affirmative action as a method of college admission. He argues that is it actually detrimental to black students – which makes him a racist.

Democrats support refugee resettlement from a fictional Middle Eastern city. What a bunch of rubes!

Yes, it’s a Ramadan Christmas, at least it was for those at Blaine High School in Minnesota, where a choir teacher made the children perform a song about Ramadan at the Christmas concert. read more

This is Why Comics Are Avoiding Colleges

We’ve all heard the famous rant by Jerry Seinfeld as he describes why will no longer do stand-up on college campuses. “[The younger generation] just want to use these words,” Seinfeld said. “‘That’s racist, that’s sexist, that’s prejudice.’ They don’t even know what they’re talking about.”

“I hear that all the time,” Seinfeld said. “I don’t play colleges, but I hear a lot of people tell me don’t go near colleges — they’re so PC (politically correct).”

Here’s what he means: read more

Obama’s New Face of the Military

by: the Common Constitutionalist

 

This ain’t your grandfather’s military. It’s not your father’s or even your older brother or sister’s military. Today’s military, Obama’s troops, look nothing like the military we have come to know, love and respect, and I feel for so bad for our troops.

 

Obama’s new military has become a politically correct social experiment. And those that don’t buy into the “changes” are purged.

 

Over the past five years of Obama’s reign, he has overseen the ouster, according to sources at WND, of approximately 200 generals, flag and senior officers.

 

Many retired officers and war heroes have characterized Obama’s actions as an all-out attack on our Armed Forces.

 

Senior, battle hardened officers are being replaced with those who fit a diversity model and who will tow the new enlightened military line. Retired Navy Capt. and many times decorated war hero, Joseph John summed it up. “The truly sad story is that many of the brightest graduates of the three major service academies witnessing what the social experiment on diversity is doing to the US military, are leaving the service after five years. We are being left with an officer corps that can be made to be more compliant, that is, exactly what Obama needs to affect his long-range goals for the U.S. Military.” read more
