We probably have about ten times as many “universities,” ten times as many professors and instructors, as any civilization can possibly need. It would be a giant step toward sanity to close them down. Not all of them. Only 90% of them.
There is no excuse for” teaching” schiff like this.
Complete the sentence and win a lobotomy! “I send my children to college to be educated by wackos like this because__________.”
We are funding these idiot factories, with our tax dollars and tuition payments. We are funding lunatics like this:
A biology professor at Marshall University has been placed on administrative leave–it must be practically impossible to get fired outright–for saying she hopes everyone who supports President Donald Trump will catch COVID-19 and “die before the election” (https://www.campusreform.org/?ID=15726).
Gee, that would’ve been over 60 million people, last time out. Probably more this time.
As if this outburst weren’t stupid enough, somehow the prof’s remark “surfaced” in the social media. We aren’t told what “surfaced” means. Could she have been deranged enough to have posted this herself?
University officials say they don’t approve of actually wishing death on people who don’t hold leftist political opinions. What they really object to, probably, is public outrage over this outrageous statement and a resulting sharp decline in enrollment… and less money flowing into the coffers.
Why are we funding these looniversities? Crikey, Charlie Manson missed his calling: he should’ve been teaching at a college.
This is what happens when you expand “higher education” way beyond the bounds of sanity. The idea that everyone must go to college is surely the most asinine notion in all of American history. Maybe even world history.
My guess is this loon will be back in the classroom when the heat dies down.
What I don’t understand is why parents don’t pull their kids out of there, pronto.
The signs mean “I speak Chinese,” but fire the teacher just in case.
Being woke does not mean you have to know what you’re talking about.
A professor at the Looniversity of Southern California business school has been suspended for using a Chinese “filler word” that supposedly sounds like “a racial slur” in English (https://www.campusreform.org/?ID=15580).
I took Chinese in college, so I know what I’m talking about. Which disqualifies me from being woke.
The word in question is “nay-ga,” which in Chinese means “that” or “that one” and is often used in conversation as the Chinese equivalent of “um” or “y’know,” etc. It does not mean what the idiots at USC think it means.
Remember the Canadian town that was going to erase the number 4 from all its street addresses, because “four” in Chinese sounds, to the untrained English ear, like the Chinese word for “dead”? Chinese people have been using those words, without getting confused, for several millenia. But a few doofuses in Canada thought they ought to protect Chinese-Canadians from their own language.
But virtue-signaling requires no knowledge of any subject. So you suspend a professor for using a Chinese word because… well, because you’re ignorant but you still want to demonstrate your wonderful wokeness.
What? The place is Racist even with you 200 jidrools running loose, in charge of educating da yout’? Doesn’t say much for your instruction, does it? I mean, really, with 200 of you yapping about “racial justice,” how come Princeton doesn’t have racial justice? Fell down on the job, did you?
One of the things Princeton can do to achieve Racial Justice, sez the petition, is “remove questions about misdemeanors and felony convictions from admissions applications,” because of course you should only be in jail for misgendering or climate change denial and locking you up for armed robbery or aggravated assault–well, that’s just Racist, and predatory policing.
Do they think they can’t fill their desired quota of Persons Of Color unless they bring in thugs and criminals, because there aren’t that many Persons Of Color who aren’t violent criminals? Dude! What about your own racism? I mean, your shockingly low expectations of Persons Of Color doesn’t suggest a terribly high opinion of them, does it?
Our colleges and universities grow more useless–and more toxic!–by the day.
Cut off the grants. Cut off the funds. We can’t afford them anymore. Cut off the money and let them die.
A whole crowd of commies–and they’re all “teaching” in our so-called schools
Since I wrote this, I’ve learned that yet another teachers’ union, this one called “Redfored” (and they do mean “red,” as in communist), has sent a delegation to Venezuela to pay homage to its colossal failures. But the, er, “teachers” from Chicago got there first.
