The university of Hate

Abraham who?

University of California-Santa Cruz professor John M. Ellis in the Wall Street Journal:

In this election season it’s almost impossible to find pro-Trump bumper stickers or signs anywhere in my town. The reason is not lack of support but fear of vandalism, or worse: People nationwide have been physically assaulted and even threatened with loss of their livelihoods. …

This social regression began on college campuses, of all places, before spreading to the national culture. On one-party campuses, radical-left faculty have established a political orthodoxy that student mobs enforce. …

For radicals, politics takes precedence over everything,  and every field within social science and the humanities eventually degrades into a mere channel to spread progressive orthodoxies. …

America’s university journalism programs are now overwhelmingly left-activist, we now effectively have the politicized press of an undeveloped nation. The same holds for schoolteachers, at present also trained by campus radicals, which is making public school systems increasingly ideological. …

Campuses are in a constant state of hysteria about “systemic” racism,” with small armies of diversity administrators always eager to jump at the slightest infraction, real or imagined.

The Professor’s Bottom Line: … “If radical leftists can persuade enough people that America is rotten at its core with racial prejudice, they’ll gain traction for their program of radical social transformation.”

Blaska’s Bottom Line: That’s what this election is all about, Charlie Brown.

Have YOU been radicalized?

    The university of hate. That spells it exactly like it is. Listen to any Youtube video interview with Dr. Thomas Sowell. What a brilliant man. This is a man who is against the group think that is common in our society today. He is against what I would call the “Borg Identity”. His big thing is to test ideas with facts. This is something that is lacking in today’s society.

    As he is quoted as saying: “I will settle for almost any kind of thinking, it’s so rare these days.”

    Even though he is an intellectual giant, he has said that the difference between an intellectual and an engineer is, when an intellectual is wrong, he doesn’t have to take any responsibility for it. When an engineer is wrong and the building he built collapses, he is ruined as an engineer.

    The problem in today’s society is that the intellectuals on campuses across the United States do not have to deal with the poison they spew.

      If you haven’t already, give Dr. Sowell’s seminal Seductive Beliefs I and Seductive Beliefs II a gander.

      They should be required reading in every public school!

      The reason academics don’t have to deal with the poison they spew is because they’re protected by “academic freedom,” a concept that sounds noble on its face but has been used more and more to cover the sins of those who benefit from it. In practical terms, academic freedom means you can’t be fired or penalized for expressing ideas others (i.e., non-academics, the people who pay your salary) might find offensive. This principle has been abused for decades by radical leftists who see it as their mission to indoctrinate young people at a time in thier lives when they’re especialy vulnurable to ideas that appeal to their naive idealism (and since they’re no longer taught the principles of critical thinking or exposed to ideas that might question leftest orthodoxy, they have no way of discovering whether what they’re being taught is valid or not). The first step to reforming colleges and universities is to eliminate tenure (except for STEM disciplines, which actually accomplish something). When those affected squeal about academic freedom, point out that they were afforded that privilege for a very long time and proved themselves unworthy of it.

    Maybe trump’s newly formed “1776 Commission” will fix this. 20 guys appointed by him handle the new “patriotic education” of America. You comrade will follow the rules set down by the commission or be sent to the re-education camps. These gulags will be built on trump golf courses where you will maintain the courses in between classes. The Proud Boys will be hired as security. QAnon will be in charge of all classroom instruction. This is your one and only warning. COMPLY OR ELSE.


    • Gg Mo says:

      Um, REALLY ? You seriously do not know that “re-education camps” and the “GULAGS” are Communist edifices, and ideas ? Communist/National Socialist MANDATES ? ….wow…The cognitive dissonance must be reeking havoc . I’ll pray for you R.L. ,as it is evident that you’ve had littlte value extended to you, and your miseducation as a mere tool for the “Globo-State” has almost erased your mind. You, and any who will, are loved , protected from worldly wiles, by our Lord Jesus the Christ , in the Trinity, who’s mercy is yours for the asking , in the privacy of your heart, and before THE Confessor.

        Gg Mo, when confronted with staggering imbecility, keep in mind one of Steve Witherspoon’s favorite quotes:

        The Difference Between Genius And Stupidity Is That Genius Has Its Limits attributed to Albert Einstein

        I understand exactly what I wrote. It will be interesting who trump picks to be on the commission. My guess; Jared, Don Jr., IVANka, Eric, David Duke, Joe Arpio, Sherriff Clark, Lindsey Graham, Steve Miller, Tom Cotton, Grassley, Hannity, Tucker, Adelson, Barr, Elmo, the Uber driver who brings the burgers and fries, Col. Sanders, his two in-laws and Rudy G.

    This 2/2020 quote summarizes the book, “The Breakdown of Higher Education: How it Happened, the Damage It Does, and What Can Be Done”, by John M. Ellis.

    “If you were to examine any speech made by a university president FIFTY years ago, you would find that the word ‘EXCELLENCE’ occurs with great frequency…. If you made the same examination now, you’d find that ‘DIVERSITY’ has taken its place.”
