Congress wants to know the extent of China’s “investment” in our colleges and universities, but many of the schools are claiming “exemption” from the Freedom of Information Act. Why they should be exempt is not at all clear.
“Massive investments of foreign money”–mostly “gifts” from China–seem to have induced any number of university professors and administrators to help the Chicoms out with propaganda, spying, and theft of intellectual property. Some of the recipients of these “gifts” have been formally charged with filing false tax returns to hide their payments from the communist regime.
Simply put, they’re selling themselves, their knowledge, and their institutions to a hostile foreign government.
That would explain why so many of our universities are so pro-China.
We are in a new cold war with China. We, short-sighted greedy fools throughout the West, have made Red China rich. Now they’re using that money against us.
It makes me wonder how deeply Red China is “invested” in our free & independent nooze media. I wonder how many of our politicians they’ve bought.
We built communist China up. Now we need to build them down–before they bury us.
The Sputnik satellite: in 1957 it changed the world
While China energetically trains young people in the sciences–including the sciences of hacking other countries’ computer systems, stealing intellectual property, and counterfeiting–our colleges and universities “squander millions on guaranteed-to-fail social engineering while China races ahead technologically,” writes Robert Weissberg, for The American Thinker (https://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2020/05/is_covid19_our_new_sputnik_moment.html).
See, we Americans blundered into this stupid paradigm that everybody has to go to college. Well, everybody’s not cut out for college. But if you want to expand and expand the universities, and hire all sorts of people who’re gonna get fantastic pensions, you gotta keep the students coming. That means lower admission standards, or no standards at all, lower requirements to earn a degree, and a vast menu of intellectually vacuous nothing courses–and next thing you know, you’ve got 100,000 thumb-sucking young people with degrees in gender studies and what the mischief do you do with ’em?
Weissberg recalls the shock administered by the Russian satellite, Sputnik, which orbited the earth in 1957. Overnight, America’s priorities changed. Suddenly everything was science. Suddenly smart was cool. Because Sputnik proved that Fat Nikita now had the power to rain nuclear weapons on us from outer space, and we had to catch up, technologically, in a hurry.
Suddenly we had all these guys in white short-sleeved shirts with pen-holders in their pockets, and crew-cuts–and in 1969 they put a man on the moon. We had pulled ahead of Soviet Russia in the arms technology race; and you may have noticed there’s no Soviet Union today. Once we’d passed them, and were serious about staying ahead, they broke their own economy trying to catch up.
Weissberg says “the culture has to change” if we’re to avoid falling hopelessly behind China technological and economically. We have to stop doing stupid stuff. No more politically correctness, safe space, Play-Doh sessions, obsession with “white privilege,” no more wasting time and money and effort on “diversity and inclusion.” All of that is pure crapola and it gets us nowhere.
Red China is the bad guys, and it’s a bad bet to let the bad guys win.
It would be good for us, if this coronavirus panic taught us that.

It’s a joke, matey, and the joke’s on you! Even if you’re not paying tuition for a totally worthless diploma, eventually you’ll have to pay, along with all the rest of the country. Oh, yeah, America’s gonna pay for this. Tens of thousands of embittered, ignorant, unemployable ex-college students clogging up the economy and getting into trouble–yeah, we’ll pay for that.
We can always hope that at least a chunk of our higher education system won’t survive the Chinese Death Virus crisis. Hope and pray.
A few examples: University of Tennessee-Knoxville, over $19 million; Salem State, over $6.5 million; University of Texas-San Antonio, over $29 million.
And they’re all using the money to hire new “diversity” administrators, to further “our broad commitments to inclusion and engagement,” blah-blah-blah. Gotta meet those “diversity goals”!
While many of us wonder if we’re going to survive the economic hardships and dislocations dumped on us by the Chinese Communist Wuhan Death Virus From China, our colleges are using our tax money to provide totally useless cushy jobs that have nothing to do with anything beyond pursuing their inane contribution to “transforming” America into a Third World socialist basket case. Our money is being pissed away for this.
You’d think our government would defend us and take back all the funds now being squandered on pseudo-education. You’d think America would have learned, the hard way, that our supply of money is not freakin’ infinite and should not be wasted on pernicious foolishness. Are we never going to learn that lesson?
The Council of Chief Diversity Officers (“Say it ain’t so. Joe!” “I’m afraid it is, kid”) for the University of California has issued a “guidance document” to tell students and staff how to talk about the Chinese Wuhan Communist Death Virus–
Oops. I wasn’t allowed to say that, was I?
Students and staff are forbidden to say “Chinese virus” and enjoined, “Do not allow”–allow? allow?–others to say it, either (http://freerepublic.com/focus/f-chat/3830546/posts). All are directed to be “supportive of a positive and inclusive campus climate during the COVID-19 crisis.” ‘Cause everything’s got to be inclusive, don’t you know.
No criticizing Red China, either. Well, the Chicoms have invested heavily in our colleges and looniversities. No biting the hand that feeds you. Even if it feeds you virus.
Oh! And staff and students are warned to steer clear of “racism, sexism, xenophobia and all hateful or intolerant speech.” You can still say “All heterosexual white males should die.”
Really! How does anybody with an ounce of self-respect manage to live in such an environment? College used to be for expanding your mind. Now it’s for shrinking it. Sort of like that vanishing white dot on your black TV screen when your power gets cut off. How can anybody with an ounce of pride consent to be lorded over by such a pack of babbling nitwits?
