The Birth of Civilization

See the source image

How did civilization start? Professors of Nothing Studies at Fimbo University think they know.

“Originally,” says department head Hugh Betcha, Ph. D., “all human beings were transgendered. That goes hand in glove with the highest levels of civilization, just as we see today. So it was that, 300 million years ago, the world’s first human civilization was populated entirely by the transgendered persons who had invented it.”

What is the evidence for this?

“Physical evidence has not survived,” says the professor, “but we can interpolate current socioeconomic trends and sort of ‘reverse-engineer’ our lost history. We also find non-physical evidence in the myths and legends of the Tasaday, the Stone Age tribe in the Philippines that has remained pure and untouched by the rest of the world for 50 million years.

“Finally, if you’re as smart as we are and you concentrate real, real hard, you will eventually intuit accurate visions of the great Transgender Age. All that ‘Male and Female’ stuff didn’t come along until much, much later–a mere 250 years ago! And it was invented by capitalists, so you know it’s bad.”

A bachelor’s degree in Nothing Studies from Fimbo University takes a mere 32 semesters to acquire, at an average cost of $30,000 per semester. “But don’t worry about the cost!” says Professor Betcha. “After all, you can always get a student loan!”


‘Are You as Smart as an NFL Draft Pick?’ (2015)

See the source image

There’s a test they give National Football League draft picks–college graduates all–to see if they’re as smart as brook trout.

https://leeduigon.com/2015/04/16/3677/

In a word, no. They’re not. They average 40% right answers.

Why do they bother to test these college graduates’ reasoning power? I mean, you already know it’s going to be pathetic, don’t you?

A chilling thought: What if they gave this test to all Americans? (Runs screaming to sidewalk…)


How I Got Un-Censored

See the source image

Well, now my post, “Boiling-Over Hypocrisy,” has been successfully published on Facebook. You are probably wondering how I managed that.

I hypothesized that maybe the problem was not what I said in the post, but the photo I used to illustrate it. As an experiment, I replaced that splendidly applicable illustration with a picture of a happy puppy. And voila–now suitable for Facebook!

Here are some more happy puppies, to keep me from getting censored again today. Pictures of celery stalks are also a safe bet, probably.

I conclude that Facebook, or its robot, censored the photo, not the text. See no evil, as the saying goes.

Reminds me of a friend of mine whose dashboard oil light kept going on; so he solved that problem by taping a piece of paper over the light. You can probably intuit the eventual fate of his car.


Can You Say ‘Boiling-Over Hypocrisy’?

Here we go again!

The kampus kops at the Looniversity of Illinois want students to report “acts of intolerance” to their “Bias Assessment and Response Team” so they can have “educational conversations” with the, um, offender until his mind is right, boss (https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/red-alert-politics/campus-police-want-students-to-report-acts-of-bias). Because all those “acts of intolerance create an unsafe and unwelcoming environment.”

So what are “acts of intolerance”? The kops explain, “actions or expressions that are motivated [here they’re reading your mind], at least in part [how big a part?] by prejudice against or hostility toward a person (or group) because of that person’s (or group’s) actual or perceived [reading your mind again] age, disability/ability status, ethnicity, gender, gender identity/expression, national origin, race, religion/spirituality, sexual orientation, socio-economic class, etc.”

Hello? Can anybody show me a college or university where the faculty and student body are not spewing venom at “white” people in general, or heterosexual white males, or Christians, or conservatives as the evil and despicable source of all the world’s problems? Holding “workshops” and offering credited “courses” on it? Threatening and shouting down conservative speakers?

“Bias Assessment and Response Team? I would like to report an act of intolerance against white heterosexual males. Like, the university is holding this workshop on how bad and evil white heterosexual males are, and teaching that there’s got to be an end to ‘whiteness’! I’m white, see, and I find this environment like really unwelcoming, and it makes me feel unsafe…”

Do you think the fanatics leading the workshop are going to be hauled in for “educational conversations”? Don’t hold your breath!

“Expressions” of “intolerance”? What would those be? Facial expressions? The term is undefined.

All public funds to the University of Illinois should be cut off immediately.

Why are we paying these little tinhorn Stalinists to undermine our country?

P.S.–Guess what? Facebook won’t let me post this! Seems what I’ve said is against their “Community Guidelines.” What “community” is that?


‘Oh, Boy! Earn a Degree in Social Justice’ (2016)

See the source image

Attention, college students! If it’s a little too much for you, trying to make sense of Feminist Geography, mosey on over to Eastern Kentucky University and try for a degree in Social Justice.

https://leeduigon.com/2016/09/09/oh-boy-earn-a-degree-in-social-justice/

We, the higher education experts of America, won’t stop until every drooling idiot in the Western Hemisphere has a bachelor’s degree in something! No matter how ridiculous, no matter how useless, no matter how non-productive.

‘Cause it sure ain’t non-productive for us, you schnooks!


‘Post-Truth Politics’–Oh, Boy!

See the source image

A pioneer of post-truth: Pontius Pilate

Say hey (quoting my boyhood hero, Willie Mays)! Did you know we’re in the era of “post-truth politics”? In fact, we’re so in the era of post-truth, the Oxford English Dictionary chose “post-truth” as its 2016 Word of the Year.

Democrats (it’s pointless to say leftids; all Democrats are leftids anymore) and academics are rather proud of this achievement, even though the American Psychiatric Ass. says trying to achieve things is a sign of toxic masculinity, and ought to be stopped. Pontius Pilate once asked, cynically, “What is truth?” If he were here today, he’d be chairman of the Democrat National Committee.

Wikipedia lists the chief characteristics of post-truth politics: appeals to emotion; constant repetition of talking points; and ignore factual rebuttals (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Post-truth_politics). They left out the other chief characteristics which are so easily observable: violence and the threat of violence; shout down dissenters; calling everyone who dissents from their position “white supremacists” or some other term of abuse; and using the social media to censor any departure from the Far Left Crazy manifesto. I put that in because every gang of nincompoops has a manifesto.

Our sages at the looniversities teach that there’s no such thing as truth, there are only “constructs,” and you’d better kow-tow to their constructs if you know what’s good for you.

Our Lord Jesus Christ said, “To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice.” (John 18:37)

We’ll take that over “post-truth” every time, thank you.

The Power of Stupidity

See the source image

(Taken from Crimes of the Educators by Samuel Blumenfeld and Alex Newman, WND Books, 2014, pg. 18)

When the top education official in the country says something flagrantly stupid, that tells you something about education in the country.

In 1993, Secretary of Education Richard Riley was told of a crisis in public education: the test scores just kept going down, most notably in reading. The situation was so bad, the National Center for Education Statistics pleaded for immediate, decisive action.

Secretary Riley, after absorbing what had been reported to him, remarked, “This should be a wake-up call for all Americans to consider going back to school and getting a tune-up.”

What?

Well, let’s see… The first time around, when you were in those schools full-time for 13 years (grades K-12), they weren’t able to teach you to read. So now, when you’re an adult and have to work, you should go back to those very same schools, part-time, and give them another shot at teaching you to read–when they couldn’t do it in the first place? What made Secretary Riley think they’d get it right if they had a do-over?

Happily, the problem of sinking SAT scores was fixed by the Educational Testing Service making the tests easier and adding points for “re-centering” the average score. This was brilliant! The average SAT score is set at 500; and if, say, 75% of the kids taking the test score below 500, and manage to average only 400… well, by cracky! 400 becomes the new 500 and is recorded as 500! Problem fixed, right?

Now it’s 2019, and the same pack of schnooks is still in charge of what we laughingly call
“education.” Only now we have no idea how to compare the test scores with those of earlier generations because they keep re-centering them!

Too many parents think they’re not qualified to homeschool their own children.

But really–could you possibly be less good at it than the people who are actually doing it?


Gibberish du Jour: ‘Feminist Geography’

See the source image

If you still think college is the place to go to get an education, think again.

Of course, you can learn all about Feminist Geography in college, while heaping up $100,000 in student debt. But what is “Feminist Geography”?

Turn we unto Wikipedia, which says Feminist Geography is “a process of situating geographical research on an intersectional foundation thereby examining axes beyond gender to incorporate positions of race, class, ability, sexuality, etc. Through this practice, feminist geography prioritizes praxis within the field as established in feminist epistemology.”

Cleared that up for you, have I?

Please! No more public funding for colleges and universities! Such a flagrant waste of money is a sin.
