Yet Another College Requirement: ‘Diversity & Inclusion’ Training

‘Diversity and inclusion training,’ the old-fashioned way

For people who pride themselves on being “pro-choice,” academic leftists excel at dreaming up things that other people must say and do, or else.

At Miami Looniversity, in Ohio, they’ve started a required (you can’t choose not to participate) program of “diversity and inclusion” and “bias training” for all new students, faculty, and staff. Its purpose, LOL, is “to combat bigotry and intolerance.”

Hypocrites. Let’s test your sincerity. If anyone can walk across your campus wearing a “Make America Great Again” cap and T-shirt, without being physically or verbally assaulted, we’ll believe you mean what you say.

Meanwhile, there will be “punishment for those who act in reactionary manners.”

“Diversity” means everybody has exactly the same opinion about everything. And gets punished if they don’t.

Why are we funding these universities with public money? Why are we paying them to turn our children into creepy little Stalinists? We are letting them damage our country with the money that we worked for! And why anyone sends his son or daughter to a public college is way beyond me.

Defund the colleges. Now. Before there’s too much harm to be repaired.


‘Whiny Students Demand Warning Labels on Literary Classics’ (2015)

Image result for images of jack and jill

I’m still trying to understand why kids who grow up playing Zombie Blood ‘n’ Guts Holocaust every day wind up cringing in fear at The Great Gatsby. It seems some mysterious and fearful thing happens to them, the moment they enter college.

https://leeduigon.com/2015/06/12/whiny-students-demand-warning-labels-on-literary-classics/

Well, I’ve heard Rutgers students this semester are objecting to the nursery rhyme, “Jack and Jill went up the hill,” on the grounds that it’s heteronormative, ableist, sexist, racist, and harmful to the bacteria that live in college students’ brains.


College Speech Fascists Lose Another Lawsuit

Image result for images of academic freedom

After four years of being suspended from his livelihood, a professor at Marquette University in Wisconsin has won a lawsuit against the school and will be reinstated with full back pay and benefits (https://www.wnd.com/2018/09/prof-returns-after-beating-university-in-free-speech-fight/).

Supposedly a Catholic university, Marquette apparently opposes the word of God when it comes to sexual morality. The professor criticized, on his own blog, a graduate assistant for slapping down a student who didn’t support homosexual “marriage.” “Gay rights,” babbled the assistant, are now “undisputed” (really?), and anyone who doesn’t think so is “homophobic.” The professor was punished for criticizing that.

Marquette doesn’t much care for Catholic dogma, but it’s all aboard for Far Left liberal fascist dogma. But the prof has sued them and won. Won everything: the college got skunked by the Wisconsin Supreme Court. And sternly rebuked, too.

The fact is that speech codes and all the rest of the looniversity hogwash are blatantly unconstitutional and cannot be honored by any court of law. So we need more lawsuits of this nature–and the plaintiffs ought to start asking for punitive damages.

And the American people ought to demand an end to all public funding of the universities. Why pay them to train up little fascists?

Transgender ‘Students’ Defend Gulags

Image result for images of solzhenitsyn weeping

Alexander Solzhenitsyn, author of The Gulag Archipelago, is spinning in his grave.

As part of their feud with feminists, “transgender rights campaigners”–a euphemism for seriously disturbed college students–at Goldsmith Looniversity, London, have argued that the infamous Soviet gulags were really nice places for “education” and “rehabilitation” (https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2018/09/11/soviet-labour-camps-compassionate-educational-institutions-say/). Not forced labor concentration camps in Siberia.

Feminists resented screwed-up males trying to hijack women’s privileges by claiming themselves to be women. Well, that got the trannies going, and one of them tweeted that  the objecting feminists ought to be sent to a gulag for “re-education.” And that got the feminists going.

In support of their recommendation to send those who disagree with them to the gulag–there aren’t any gulags, yet, in Britain: but give it time–the trannies, er, “defended” their preposterous comments. Like so:

“The ideas of TERFS–” I don’t know what a TERF is, and I prefer to leave it that way for as long as possible–“and anti-trans bigots literally kill and ought to be eradicated through re-education.” And “Sending a bigot to one [a gulag] is actually a compassionate non-violent course of action.”

No, there wasn’t any violence at the gulags! Just a lot of classroom time, partying, cross-country skiing in that bracing Siberian winter, and maybe some amateur theatrics. Sort of a summer camp for adults, plus unendurable cold. Oh, and the food was really good, too!

Go ahead, build a bunch of gulags and send your rivals there; and then, once they get into power, they can send you there. Plenty of relaxing gulag time for all.

It is probably unnecessary to comment further on the deranged wickedness that now constitutes a college education.


NJ ‘University’ to Offer ‘Cannabis Studies’

Image result for images of pot heads

“Stockton University” in New Jersey–it used to be a community college, but now every academic halfway house is a “university”–is going to offer, this fall semester, a minor in “Cannabis Studies” (https://www.campusreform.org/?ID=11289).

For a mere $5,100 if you’re an in-state student, or $9,200 if you’re from out of state, you can sit around and talk pot to your heart’s content. How intellectually stimulating! The school makes a point of declaring that offering the course is “not an endorsement” to be stoned all the time. So we don’t have to worry about that, do we?

What are we to make of someone who has five or nine thousand bucks to throw away on “Cannabis Studies”? Not that it’s any more a waste of time than all the other “studies” cluttering up our colleges. Gender Superhero Cissexual Surfing Studies: stuff like that. At this point you can’t even get a degree in Cannabis Studies–but what do you want to bet a degree program will become available, once they figure out how much they can charge for it?

Too many colleges, too many people in ’em, too much money going down the rabbit-hole…

Defund the looniversities now.


You Don’t Need College After All?

Image result for images of worthless college degree

Hey! Y’know that one or two hundred thousand dollars you spent for that bachelor’s degree in Gender Superhero Studies? You could have saved your money.

A lot of big, high-end corporations have decided to start hiring people who don’t have college degrees–including IBM, Nordstrom, Apple, Google, Bank of America, and the mega accounting firm of Ernst & Young (https://www.foxbusiness.com/personal-finance/more-companies-dropping-college-degree-requirement-for-new-hires). All they want is an employee whose head is on straight, who’ll work hard, and can learn.

Which doesn’t describe a lot of college students.

So what happened to “You’ve just absolutely got to go to college or you’ll never get a decent job and get ahead”?

Yeah, well, that just kept getting more and more untrue as college got to be more and more a waste of time and money. America’s colleges and looniversities benefited big-time from one of the greatest sales pitches in human history.

We have way too many colleges, way too many people in those colleges, and spend way, way, way too much money on a load of bunk that passes for an education. Not to mention the colleges’ new role as a breeding ground for neo-Stalinism.

No more public funds for universities! Let them sink or swim in the free market, like everybody else. If any of them are worthwhile, they’ll survive and prosper. The others will go extinct–and they’ll deserve it.

 


Joe Collidge’s Future in Doubt

Image result for images of silly college students

Usually on Fridays this blog gets a visit from Joe Collidge, and we get an update on educational failure and intellectual mischief. But now Joe’s future is a bit iffy. I mean the future of those “Joe Collidge” posts. We know his actual future is somewhat worse off than just iffy.

At least one reader wants Joe to go away. At least one wants him to stay. What about the rest of you? Should he be voted off the island?

The picture above is not Joe himself, but one of his Gender Studies professors. Joe puts a waste basket over his head whenever anyone tries to take his picture. The fact that he has grown a pair of moth antennae seems to embarrass him.

Tree-Hugging… for Crazies

Image result for images of tree hugging

Not content with making students ill-informed and stupid, America’s colleges and looniversities want to go on to make them crazy, too.

At St. Mary’s University, in Maryland, the hot feminist trend is “ecosexual,” defined as “one who takes the earth as their [sic] lover” (https://www.campusreform.org/?ID=11271). We shall not address the bad grammar.

“If more people viewed trees as romantic partners…” This stuff first appeared in a publication called “Feminist Theory.” That’s probably all you need to know about it.

To get “educated” (lol) into feminist theory at St. Mary’s costs you about $28,000 a year if you’re a Maryland resident, and over $43.000 if you’re from out of state. If you manage to whip through to your degree in a mere four years, that’s $113,000 and change for Marylanders, and $175,000 for out-of-staters. Keep them checks comin’, Ma!

No cost at all, though, if you have the good sense to stay away.
