My Newswithviews Column, Dec. 5 (‘How Chick-fil-A Went Sour’)

The lesson we should be learning from this is that The Swamp is everywhere.

(http://newswithviews.com/how-chick-fil-a-went-sour/)

The action we should be taking is to stop the creation of Swamp creatures by defunding the colleges and getting government–and teachers’ unions!–out of education altogether.

Because The Swamp is wrecking our country.


Does China Own Our Universities?

Communism makes young people happy!!

Just going by current events, you’d think it would hardly be necessary for communist China to try to influence our Western colleges and looniversities. I mean, these schools are already pushing communism–right?

Nevertheless, the Chinese government’s department of “education and propaganda” (they don’t see much difference between the two) has taken pains to set up “Confucius Institutes” at colleges throughout the United States and Britain–148 of them here at home, and another 29 in the UK (https://www.breitbart.com/europe/2019/11/06/chinese-communists-infiltrate-uk-universities/).

The Confucius Institutes promote Chinese interests in general, and in particular, they labor to steer study and discussion away from “the three T’s”–Tibet, Taiwan, and Tien-an-Men Square. In Britain they’ve been able to get lectures and conferences on those subjects canceled and have confiscated students’ papers dealing with those topics. They also do a bang-up job of intimidating Chinese students who are studying abroad.

Here in America, Senator Josh Hawly–Republican, of course, from Missouri–no Democrat would dream of doing this–has called for a Congressional investigation into the Confucius Institutes’ influence on American “higher education.” Somehow he doesn’t think it’s a good idea to be pumping American students full of Chinese Communist Party ideology. Not that American communism is any better.

We have way more colleges and universities than we need, with way too many students in them, pissing away four, five, or six years of their lives, with way too many Far Left kooks “teaching” them a lot of garbage–and it’s costing us way, way, way too much money. In fact, we’re “educating” ourselves to death.

Defund the universities. Now.

 


University Scuttles ‘Bias Response Teams’

See the source image

As part of an out-of-court settlement of a lawsuit, the University of Michigan has agreed to do away with its “Bias Response Teams,” otherwise known as Speech Police (https://www.campusreform.org/?ID=13934). “Speech First” filed the lawsuit 18 months ago; now the university has… well, surrendered.

There may be a catch, though. The Bias Response Teams are to be replaced by “Campus Climate Support” (CCS). Is that the same thing, with a different name? Under the settlement, the Klimate Kops won’t have power to “impose discipline” on students who say The Wrong Thing. Not being totally trusting of the university’s good faith, Speech First has reserved the right to re-activate their lawsuit if the school falls back into its old habits of censorship. You’d have to be pretty dim to trust university officials.

It was necessary to reserve this right because colleges and looniversities have established a pattern, when a lawsuit has been filed against them and they think they’re going to lose, of crying “I’ll be good, I’ll be good”–and then, when the heat’s off, reverting to their normal state of soft fascism.

It’s good to see these academic tyrants reined in, but it’s not enough–nowhere near enough. They’re still teaching twaddle, still indoctrinating minds already made mushy by teachers’ unions in the public schools. It has to stop. It has to stop.


‘The University as a Fount of Idiocy’ (2012)

See the source image

When you really think about the human potential, the money, and the time wasted in our colleges and looniversities, you could just sit down and cry.

https://leeduigon.com/2012/12/05/the-university-as-a-fount-of-idiocy/

Let’s tell it like it is–the idea that everyone has got to go to college is the single worst idea ever to stupefy and cripple Western civilization. Really, our own hope is to defund the colleges now and pray that the people who’ve already been there someday grow out of it. Alas, we already know that some will never grow out of it.

Seven years ago I wrote this–and the situation’s gotten worse every day since then.


‘Deplorable People Have Too Many Babies!’ (2016)

A “professor of moral philosophy” (LOL) at some college says so, so it must be true.

https://leeduigon.com/2016/09/24/deplorable-people-have-too-many-babies/

Then they wonder why kids are depressed, after being force-fed all this gloom and doom–force-fed by The Highest Authorities In The Land. The kings and queens of crapola.

And they never, ever, set even the slightest example of the austerity that they demand from us.

There’s only one answer they deserve, and here it is.


Are the Colleges Headed for Extinction?

All across America ultra-liberal colleges are collapsing, says Dr. Steven Turley (see video above), a theologian and Christian educator from Delaware.

Two-thirds of America’s colleges and looniversities failed to meet their 2016 enrollment goals. But at the same time, enrollment at conservative Christian schools has increased every year since 2003.

At Hampshire College, Massachusetts, where they burned the American flag to “protest” Donald Trump’s election–they so badly wanted Hillary!–freshman enrollment is down 94% and overall enrollment down by 50%. This year’s freshman class will have only fifteen students in it.

There’s Oberlin College, in Ohio, headed for bankruptcy after a court ordered them to pay $$44 million in damages to a bakery which college officials and activists tried to smear out of existence.

From sea to shining sea, Turley says, leftid colleges are going under, “imploding under the weight of their own hysteria… All we have to do is sit there and watch it happen.” Although some of the decline can be blamed on lower birth rates, especially among secular liberals, Turley says it’s more because of the schools becoming increasingly alienated from America than any other factor. To which we say, ya think?

Having surrendered lock, stock, and barrel to the Far Left Crazy, our colleges and looniversities do our country much more harm than good. They must stop receiving public money! Call on Congress to defund them: if they can’t make it in the free market, by offering a service that people are actually willing to pay for, and competing with each other to keep the costs down–well, then, they have no business making it at all.

What price a degree in Superhero Studies?


Freshman Dis-Orientation

See the source image

They call it “education.”

(Thanks to Susan for the nooze tip)

Peggy Nance of Concerned Women for America accompanied her son to freshman orientation at Virginia Tech… and was appalled by “extreme and overtly leftist propaganda” (https://thefederalist.com/2019/08/14/sons-freshman-orientation-virginia-tech-full-leftist-propaganda/).

Looniversity authorities separated children and parents so no one would complain about “speaker after speaker” subjecting new students to Far Left crazy horse****. And of course they made a big thing out of “preferred pronouns,” going so far as to include it on each student’s ID badge.

“Parents,” said the nimrods who run the place, “don’t be shocked if your kid comes home changed.” Ya think? If they’re not turned into leftist babblers, it won’t be because the so-called school didn’t try.

Ms. Nance urges parents to contact their state legislators and demand that they prohibit unconstitutional speech codes at their children’s colleges–and, while they’re at it, also contact alumni associations and the looniversity president.

These looniversities are all funded by public money, and they are not the public’s friends.

Defund public colleges and universities now… while we still have an America worth saving.


‘This Just In: University Punishes Student for Criticizing ISIS, Rioters’ (2015)

See the source image

Why does a “Christian” university support this?

We really have to be off our chumps, to keep on founding looniversities that oppose themselves to everything our country stands for. Like for instance:

https://leeduigon.com/2015/08/04/this-just-in-university-punishes-student-for-criticizing-isis-rioters/

Texas “Christian” (that’s a laugh!) University threw the book at a student because he made disparaging remarks about bloodthirsty savages. I’d like to know where they get the authority to punish anyone. Hey, Stalinist jerks! If you don’t want the kid around anymore, give him back his tuition money and send him home.

Nor can I explain why the student allowed himself to be “punished” by a gang of little tinpot tyrants.

For the good of America, defund the universities. Now.


More College Crapola

“I will not question my liberal professors…”

Nothing, but nothing–not Hollywood, not the nooze media, not even the Democrat Party–has done more harm to American than what we laughingly call our “education” system. If we do go down for the count, it will be our schools that put us there.

Example No. 12 million-and-something:

Students at the Looniversity of Houston are participating in a “diversity exercise” which has been kicking around the public high schools and middle schools for quite a few years and has now been promoted to college.

“Here’s the race, sex, etc. of twelve people. Now choose eight ‘most deserving’ to save from apocalypse” (https://www.campusreform.org/?ID=13483). The twelve include a famous novelist with a disability, a female movie star who’s been the victim of a sexual assault, and a “militant” African-American medical student.

It presupposes you want to survive the death of everybody else.

The exercise is part of some Student Life Diversity Learning Outcome. Do you know what that is? I don’t. Nor do I think it would in any way enrich me to know. Just more word salad tossed up by brain-dead academics.

Hello out there! Wake up! Far Left Crazy is dead serious about a “fundamental transformation” of America, which they mean to initiate after first tearing down and scrapping the America that’s already here. And they are using our education system to do it.

Take your children out of public school. Starve the teacher unions into extinction.

Don’t send your children to public universities. By all means, and as soon as possible, defund the universities.

Because, believe me, they are trying as hard as they  can to put us under.

 


Yale Prof Hates White Men, Loves Soviet Union

We miss you, Uncle Joe!

I know–this is sort of like reporting that the Pope is Catholic.

A Yale professor declared, “Life was better under the Soviets” and that “everybody” she knows, who came to America from former communist countries, found our “neo-capitalist” system “inhuman,” blah-blah-blah (https://www.campusreform.org/?ID=13431).

She was just getting warmed up. She went on to proclaim “Whiteness is terrorism,” white men “have no awareness of others,” and should all be sent to “re-education” camps (because that will stop gun violence, don’t you know). Feel the love.

What do you want to bet none of the social media ever bans or censors this venom-spitting racist jerk?

Defund the universities now! What sense does it make to use public money to raise up a generation that hates our country and wants to turn it into a communist hell-hole?

That jidrool at Yale is doing it on your dime, people.
