Master of Morons

(Thanks to Susan for the nooze tip)

When moronic Far Left college students tried to shut down the New York City subway system on Jan. 31, The New York Post has reported, the mastermind behind it seems to have been a New York University professor who teaches “militant activism” and whose contact information has since been deleted from the NYU website (https://nypost.com/2020/02/15/nyu-professor-founded-anarchist-group-that-attacked-subways-last-month/).

This guy, who wasn’t born here but has a nice life in America, is the founder of a bunch called “Decolonize This Place” and a teacher in NYU’s “experimental humanities” department, exploring the connection between “art and activism.” Honk if you think NYU has way too much money to spend on frivolous horseschiff.

His social media posts have been taken down, too; but we hear they included instructions on how to stab or blind police officers. The students who attacked the subway system reportedly did some $100,000 worth of damage to public property–while demanding “free” rides on the subway for everyone, from now on, and the removal of all police presence from the subway system. Can you imagine what would happen, if they actually did that? Only persons bent on suicide would dare to ride the subway.

Just now, neither NYU nor the NYPD are commenting on the case. There’s some movement among non-radical students to get Professor Yo-Yo fired… But then who would teach “art and activism”?

Do we really need to open our borders to persons who hate the United States and want to bring it down?

Meanwhile, defund the universities. No more public money!

Ohio Passes Campus Free Speech Act

See the source image

The Ohio Senate has unanimously approved a law to permit free speech at colleges and universities and do away with “free speech zones” (https://www.zerohedge.com/political/ohio-state-lawmakers-unanimously-pass-campus-free-speech-bill-professors-oppose-effort).

A “free speech zone” is a tiny piece of the campus where they allow some semblance of free speech, while restricting it everywhere else.

Opposed to the bell was [trumpet fanfare]… the American Assn. of University Professors. Speech has just got to be restricted at a university, these vegetables–oops, sorry, I mean “intellectuals”–argued… because allowing a “controversial” speaker to speak–they mean a speaker who’s not a leftid–might cause “massive disruptions” that kan’t be kontrolled by the kampus kops.

Gee. Doesn’t that give Far Left Crazy total veto power over who’s allowed to speak? All they have to do is threaten a disruption, and the speaker’s not allowed.

Let the record show that the American Assn. of University Professors is opposed to free speech on campus.

Dudes! Under the Constitution–you know: the law of the land–there’s only one free speech zone in America. It runs from the Atlantic to the Pacific, and from Canada to Mexico.

Defund the colleges and universities. They don’t deserve public money, and they certainly don’t earn it.


‘Collidge Student Mistakes Lab Equipment for KKK Hood’ (2017)

See the source image

What are they doing to college students, anyway, that makes them think they see KKK members crouching behind every mailbox?

https://leeduigon.com/2017/01/25/collidge-student-mistakes-lab-equipment-for-kkk-hood/

Are college students just preternaturally stupid, or have their teachers tampered with them, to make them so?

When was the last time you saw someone in Ku Klux Klan regalia hiding out in chem lab? Because of course, if some guy from the Klan was up to no good, he’d want to sneak around in his somewhat eye-catching costume, for everyone to see…

Gimme a break.

 

 


‘My Alma Mater! Hot Dog! (It’s an Idiot Factory)’ (2016)

Image result for images of man with no mouth

It’s been a few years now since Rutgers phoned me, asking for money. I don’t know how many times I had to tell them that I don’t contribute to perverse criminal enterprises. Maybe they finally got the message.

But at Rutgers Looniversity, the idiocy never takes a breather. For instance:

https://leeduigon.com/2016/09/01/my-alma-mater-hot-dog-its-an-idiot-factory/

Soon leftids will have it so we can’t say anything at all, except to recite brain-dead mantras scripted for us by communist blowhards.

And they’ll call it education.


This Is ‘Offensive’?

See the source image

Might as well keep it in a jar, for all the use they get of it.

(Source: Martin Selbrede, “As a Result…” in Arise & Build, Chalcedon’s monthly newsletter, Jan. 31, 2020)

Steven Wilson, founder and CEO of a New York City charter school chain, was fired recently for a blog post that “extolled an education structured to permit students to ‘experience the satisfaction of their intellect: the heady delight in connecting ideas, the pleasure of imagination, and the reward that follows mental struggle.'”

“In today’s highly charged climate,” Martin adds, “to be protective of such values against ideologically intolerant litmus tests is regarded as inherently oppressive and racist.”

So thinking is now “racist”? Well, yeah, everything is racist, somehow.

But here we have “education” itself tearing at… education! Suddenly “education” means the opposite of education. Suddenly it means tamping down the mind so that the students will not connect ideas.

Western societies are “educating” themselves to death. There are way too many colleges and looniversities, way too many students in them (learning how not to connect ideas), way, way, way too many self-important pinheads “educating” them into idiocy, and appalling sums of money being wasted on it.

The only thing our education establishment is in business for is to crank out more Far Left Crazy dunderheads. For “educators” today, this is Job One. There is no Job Two.

Take away the public funding, break the teachers’ unions, and let the free market strangle most of the colleges and looniversities.

Before they strangle what’s left of our civilization.


Teacher Dismayed: Christianity Losing Out to Paganism?

See the source image

Really, we’re not there yet

A Catholic priest turned history teacher at Columbia University thinks America is losing its Christianity and turning pagan (https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2019/dec/30/faith-in-us-withers-as-apathy-trumps-religion/?utm_source=Facebook&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=TWTnews2332861&fbclid=IwAR36EINYc021DJnxjnx8jTqg3bvfSjB2pkg8MRtk2YCGgulX_D4HQYMc5GQ).

He bases this on several factors: a) his students’ ignorance of the Bible, b) church attendance dropping, nationwide, in various denominations, and c) what appears to him to be total apathy towards religion among his students and most other people at Columbia.

“But what went ye out into the wilderness for to see? A man clothed in soft raiment?”

Has this man forgotten where he is? Columbia University. The heart of darkness. The belly of the beast. Dude, Republicans exist in the tens of millions–but good luck finding any at Columbia. Ditto Biblically-literate Christians. Heck, you’re lucky if you find those in a seminary!

Besides which–and I speak from personal experience–how many twentysomethings are all that interested in “religion”? They’re mostly interested in themselves. It can take a long time to grow out of that.

He also seems to be conflating “no church membership” with “no belief in Christianity.” They are two very different things. This guy needs to get out more.

People are leaving liberal denominations in droves–the Presbyterian Church USA, for example. They leave those liberal churches not because they’ve lost their Christian faith, but because they want to keep it.

If you must go to a place like Columbia, go to reclaim ground for Christ. Too much has been ceded to the enemy.

 


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

See the source image

Looking back, it seems incredible that our colleges and looniversities were already so awful, seven years ago. Butler U., in Indiana, was only one in hundreds of citadels of brainlessness.

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

Back then, America’s aggregate student debt had already galloped past a trillion dollars. Gotta be half again as much by now.

Are we getting our trillion dollars’ worth? Or are we just paying these “schools” to crank out moronic malcontents who’ve been taught to hate our country?


Our Colleges: Dumbing It Down

It’s so hard to learn from morons!

Motivated by a weird belief that everybody–everybody!–ought to go to college, America’s colleges and universities continue to dumb down the curriculum.

Like, dropping math requirements, says a honcho at Michigan State, will result in “more successful graduation outcomes” (https://dailycaller.com/2019/12/03/detroit-valedictorian-math-msu/). The kids won’t learn anything, but the colleges will look better.

The Daily Caller has reported on the plight of a high school valedictorian from Detroit now “struggling with low-level math” at Michigan State. In high school she got all A’s. Now she’s up against it, academically.

Meanwhile, the California State University system may do away with the SAT and ACT tests as admissions requirements–because those tests, they say, promote “inequity in student populations.” Honk if you can figure out what that means.

Michigan State dropped algebra in 2016, while Wayne State went them one better by dropping general math altogether.

And another wizard of education has proclaimed that requiring right answers, and expecting students to do their assigned homework, is–you guessed it!–“prejudiced.”

But look, there’s a very simple solution to this problem.

Let every high school student who wants to go to college send his chosen college a check for the tuition. When the check clears, the student is automatically accepted; and when the next mail comes, voila!–a college degree. This will save an immense amount of time and space, not to mention the frustration of flunking out.

Of course you’ll still be able to go to a university, if you’ve been looking forward to parties, game day, sex with people you hardly know, etc. To accommodate these students, it will probably be necessary to drop all academic requirements, the whole batch of ’em, just collect tuition and fees for four or five years, and then hand out the diplomas: everybody gets one, so that’ll be that for “inequity.” With a graduation rate of 100%, college administrators can hold up their heads in pride.

That’s where we’re obviously headed, whether the colleges adopt this plan or not. The only question is how long it will take to get there.


So Who Gets Stuck with the $1.5 Trillion Tab?

See the source image

What’s missing from this picture?

Democrat presidential candidates say canceling a total of $1.5 trillion in college student debt will stimulate the economy (https://fortune.com/2019/11/29/student-debt-cancellation-plans-economy/). Instead of shelling out $500 a month to repay student loans, all these Stupid Studies grads are going to go out and buy homes and cars, etc.

So where does the $1.5 trillion go? Does it just disappear? Who’s going to wind up paying it?

Uh… you do! You and I and all the rest of the suckers who didn’t take out enormous loans to go to college.

Doesn’t sound too stimulating to me.

Wait a sec, I have a better idea.

Defund the colleges and looniversities. Stop pouring money into them–federal grants and tuition payments. Discard this preposterous idea that everybody has to go to freakin’ college.

If you really want to stimulate the economy, big-time, and save our culture while you’re at it, get the government out of the “education” business altogether. If we must have public education–really, must we?–return control of it to the local communities where it belongs.
