What a Load of Crap

What? No more funds for Gender Studies? You’ve got to be kidding!

You’ve got to give the Far Left Crazy credit: owning the media, they don’t let it sit unused. They use it each and every day, to try to lure normal people into folly.

Today I couldn’t run a search without getting, on the Bing search page, a come-on for an article with the bloviating title, Viktor Orban’s War on the Intellect, from the Far Left Crazy rag, The Atlantic.

https://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2019/06/george-soros-viktor-orban-ceu/588070/?utm_source=feed

The author’s hysteria was showing: “Like Pol Pot or Josef Stalin–” oh, please–“Orban dreams of liquidating the intelligentsia…”

How, just how, was Orban, the president of Hungry, going to do that?

Why, by withdrawing public funds from universities! By refusing to pay for any more Gender Studies degree programs! That’s how he’s gonna be “liquidating the intelligentsia.” Not a dry eye in the house…

Where is it written that any country has to lavish public funding upon a whole class of academic nonentities whose only function is to serve as a Greek chorus of yes-men to the Far Left Crazy? In our country, that would be the Democrat Party. In Europe, assorted globalists. Same thing. And putting a stop to the gravy train is the same as “liquidating” them?

But see, Orban is the bad guy and his efforts to stop wasting money on the universities is only the latest manifestation of the world-wide struggle between “human rights” and “nationalism.” What bunk. This is a fine example of a false dichotomy. Dude, you has to choose! You can have either human rights, or your own country–not both. Only a bunch of college professors would think we couldn’t see through that. But sane people know that having their own countries is protection against the kind of incredible tyranny that would accompany any global government. The dichotomy is not only false, but has an evil intent.

The author laments President Orban’s effort to “chase” Central European University out of Hungary. It’s a private university owned and operated by rent-a-riot king George Soros–the Jabba the Hutt of globalism. The villain who wants to “remake” nations according to his own authoritarian dreams. Our nation, too–big-time. But we are here asked to believe that President Orban is the bad guy and Soros, that spider, the good guy. It is profoundly insulting, to be asked such a thing.

What Orban is doing in Hungary would be a very, very good thing to be doing here! He is pulling public money out of universities. We ought to do the same!

Do these self-anointed fat-heads honestly think we can’t do without them? Let them put whatever they think they have to offer on the open market, and see who buys it.

I’m betting hardly anyone.


Found! My Newswithviews Column, April 25 (‘Now They Hate Your Daughters, Too’)

Don’t stop your ears! Stop the colleges

I don’t know why this wasn’t available earlier this morning. With the same problem cropping up in New Jersey, Virginia, and Idaho, it was probably a computer glitch at the publisher’s end. Anyway, here it is now.

Now They Hate Your Daughters, Too

I find it increasingly difficult to escape the conclusion that our colleges and looniversities are purposely trying, as hard as they can, to destabilize our country, plunge our social order into chaos, and somehow emerge on top, ruling the rubble. Or else it’s just something so deeply perverse as to have no rational explanation at all.

Either way, we’d better put a stop to it, like, now–before “higher education” puts a stop to America.


100% Pure Crapola from Wake Forest U.

See the source image

Here’s the latest from our wonderful colleges and looniversities.

Wake Forest U. is going to hold “listening sessions” which will be strictly “No whites allowed.” The announced purpose of the sessions is to promote… “inclusion” (https://www.thecollegefix.com/university-hosts-no-whites-allowed-faculty-and-staff-listening-sessions-to-promote-inclusivity/). By excluding whites.

The listening sessions will be only “for faculty/staff who identify as faculty/staff of color.” What does that mean, “identify as”? Anybody can “identify as” anything. I identify as King of Akkad. Big deal.

What’s on the agenda? Well, they want to craft a “zero-tolerance policy for white supremacy” on the campus. What do they mean by “white supremacy”? Ooh! Thirty-seven years ago–yes, 37 years ago–a couple of the administrators posed in front of a Confederate flag for their yearbook photo. The horror, the horror!

These schools are playing games with young people’s minds, and evil and unwholesome games at that. And they’re doing it on our dime! “White supremacy”–an ancient yearbook photo. To get people all worked up about something as ridiculous as that, worked up on their way to violence–worked up so that they boil over with rage and hate–

Only a liberal would think that was a good thing.


The Myth of ‘Campus Rape Culture’

Image result for images of campus rape culture

If it’s so dangerous, why are you there?

Ball State Looniversity in Muncie, Indiana, is offering students the chance to duck out of 15 credit hours’ worth of “traditional course requirements” and get equal credit for immersing themselves in some jidroolery called “Rape Culture in the Age of #MeToo” (https://www.campusreform.org/?ID=12080).

Hot dog. “Students will collect stories of rape culture on campus” and use them to put together a podcast.

Question!

If there really is a “campus rape culture” at Ball State–and it does look like the looniversity is admitting that there is–then why do any parents send their daughters there? Do they want them to be raped? Or could it be that they know the whole thing is just a sham? They certainly show no sign of believing that it’s true.

The wonderful thing about imaginary problems, the thing that makes them so useful to leftists of all kinds, is that, because they are imaginary, they can never be solved and they never go away. Hey, if you want something to cry about, try living in Venezuela for a while. Or any other of the world’s notorious hell-holes.

But no–so much nicer to stick around America and whine about “rape culture” without having to worry about really getting raped.

College! Making America dumber by the day.

Please, please, please cut off the funding!


Good News: President Trump Acts to Protect Free Speech on Campus

See the source image

It’s about time!

President Donald Trump today told an audience at CPAC that he will sign an executive order to cut off federal research grants to colleges and universities that don’t support free speech (https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2019/mar/2/donald-trump-says-he-will-sign-executive-order-pro/?utm_source=RSS_Feed&utm_medium=RSS).

The announcement comes after a conservative student was physically assaulted at Berkeley–something which Far Left crazies have been doing rather a lot of, lately.

The president said action is need to protect those who “challenge ridiculous ideas” promoted by the universities.

As the saying goes, “gotta start somewhere.” This is a good start. More is needed. Our whole “higher education” establishment is PC–Politically Correct and Philosophically Corrupt. We do not need to be funding them as hatcheries of neo-Stalinism.

Take away the tax money, and watch the Far Left shrivel up and die.


Feminists Want to Ban Deodorants

See the source image

No, sorry, it’s not a satire. It’s for real.

Feminists at some stupid pow-wow at UCLA have called upon their cohorts to “refrain from wearing fragrances,” including deodorants (https://www.campusreform.org/?ID=11782). A lot of people already think feminists are unhygienic. This will do nothing to alter that opinion.

The title of the event is “Thinking Gender: Feminists Confronting the Carceral State” with “feminist, queer, abolitionist, and intersectional interventions.”

If you understood that sentence, there’s something wrong with you.

I guess they’re tryin’ to say America’s just this great big prison, part of “America’s gendered regimes of incarceration,” oh, brother, and all these left-wing weirdos have gotta get together and do somethin’ about it, big-time…

Does anybody wonder that I’m totally burned out by Friday?

Again let us appeal to whatever is left of sanity in our country: please, defund the colleges and universities! It can’t possibly do America any good at all to keep these idiot hatcheries open any longer.


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.


In Case You Still Suspected that They Might Be Sane…

See the source image

The crop failed, but at least we’ve got gender equity in agriculture!

This is not satire.

Penn State University, where Jerry Sandusky practiced pedophilia for 15 years before they finally caught him in 2011, plans to offer a “gender fellow” thingy for doctoral students so they can “examine the relations between gender and agriculture” (https://www.campusreform.org/?ID=11671).

What?

Supposedly, “promoting gender equity in agriculture” will someday, somehow, “alleviate global hunger and poverty.” Uh-huh.

As in, “Well, we couldn’t grow any food this year, but we sure got gender equity!”

And people are spending hard-earned money to send their kids to this madhouse?

Go ahead–tell me the loons who came up with this caper are in their right minds and know what they’re doing. Tell me it’s money well spent.

And I’ll tell you it’s time to cut off all public funding to the universities, and let them sink or swim in a free market.


Brown U. Aborts Its Own Study (‘Cause They Didn’t Like What They Found)

Image result for images of crazy man being napoleon

As our country’s chief repositories of madness and idiocy, the universities have to be careful not to let any glimmer of sanity break in and spoil everything.

Brown University has aborted its own study of “gender dysphoria” because the results were soooo not what they wanted, and might have served to “invalidate the perspectives”–eh? what?–of “the transgender community” (http://www.foxnews.com/us/2018/08/30/brown-u-pulls-gender-dysphoria-study-worried-that-findings-might-invalidate-perspectives-transgender-community.html).

Honk if you believe there’s really any such thing as the transgender community.

Anyhow, the study indicated that rather than being inborn, “gender dysphoria”–that’s science-talk for saying you’re a woman when you’re not, or saying you’re a man when you’re a woman: in the vernacular, “stupid crazy bulls***”–seems to have an outside cause. We gasp at the suggestion that social media and “friends” can influence teens to “change their gender identity”–no! Say it ain’t so! In fact, the scientists discovered “rapid-onset gender dysphoria” following binge-watching of trans-encouraging videos. They called it “peer contagion.” Well, I never! Who would’ve thought teens could ever be influenced by other teens?

The study was discontinued before they could explore the question of whether overlooked or neglected teens can suddenly get all kinds of attention, and even praise, maybe even fame, for “changing their gender identity.”

Just for the record, because truth has value, there is no such thing as a transgender person. There are only deluded individuals who say they are transgender. We are not obligated to believe some poor kook who says he’s Warren G. Harding. Why should we have to believe these other nuts?

But in the spirit of academic freedom and untrammeled inquiry, Brown has shut down its study because the trannies might not like it.

Defund the universities. Defund them now. Because they’re killing our country.


A Tossed Salad of Blather

Image result for images of feminists talking gibberish

Honest, I would report good news if I could find some. But mostly I’m stuck writing about what we get as a reward for turning our backs to God and seeking, of all things, a utopia designed by idiots and sinners: in the words of my editor, Susan, “an omelet made with rotten eggs.”

And so I’m here to tell you that the University of Kansas is setting up a “feminist parenting group… for raising intersectional feminist children,” whatever the hell they are (https://www.campusreform.org/?ID=11250). They will practice “intersectional trans-inclusive feminism” and “challenge kyriarchy,” whatever the hell that is, while “rejecting the gender binary.”

Blah, blah–a tossed salad of blather. Tossed all over the room. Sticking to the ceiling and the walls.

What I want to know is, what kind of man marries one of these creatures? You can’t even talk to them: they speak pure gibberish. They laugh at certain kinds of religious people who speak in tongues–but what are they doing? And what kind of man wants to wake up to that every morning, and go to bed to that every night?

Our universities are wasting our money, turning young people into babbling blockheads, and maiming our culture. 

Defund them before they finish what they’ve started. Believe me, you don’t want to live in the kind of world they’re making.
