Stealth ‘Education’

Review: The Nutty Professor - Slant Magazine

What could our colleges possibly have to hide?

(Thanks to Phoebe for the nooze tip)

With colleges and universities shut down in quarantine, “educators” and students are trying to provide a college education online. In itself, a good idea. But you know what happens to good ideas when leftids get hold of them.

Some professors are getting worried about the content of their, er, “teaching” becoming generally known to the public (https://moonbattery.com/profs-fear-public-will-learn-what-they-have-been-teaching/). Like, what would happen if parents found out what they were really getting for their tuition money?

Warns a professor at Texas Christian–“Christian”? Did I read that right?–University, “If you are recording a lecture on anything controversial, be prepared for the right-wing sites to ask students to share it.” Whoa! We can’t let that happen! Just one of those “down with white people” spiels, viewed online by thousands of white parents who are paying a fortune for their kids’ minds to be gelatinized by these left-wing jidrools, and the whole Higher Education enterprise could be jeopardized.

Another professor suggests posting course materials on youtube as “unlisted videos,” so you’d need to have the direct link to view them.

When I was substitute teaching in a certain high school, some years ago, the only class that was never handed to a substitute was Sex Education. If the teacher was absent, a vice principal had to supervise the class. They had a strict rule against bringing any textbook out of the classroom, lest the student take it home and his parents see it and start asking awkward (and heated) questions.

So they want to hide their content from the paying public! Doesn’t that just puff you up with confidence?

One naturally suspects that yeah, they’ve got plenty of bad stuff to hide.

Defund the colleges. Put them into the free market and let them sink or swim. And don’t expect a lot of swimming.


Far Left Crazy Opposes Harvard’s ‘Religious Liberty Clinic’

Image result for images of first amendment

Is it the law of the land, or not?

I’m sure we’ve mentioned once or twice that two competing and mutually opposed moral codes can’t co-exist in one society. Harvard University is about to find that out.

“Gay” Etc. students and staff are opposing Harvard’s plan to create a “religious liberty clinic” whose function we suppose, would be to protect everyone’s lawfully guaranteed, by the First Amendment to the Constitution, religious liberties (https://www.campusreform.org/?ID=14549). No way, says Far Left Crazy–not unless the clinic takes a pledge not to take any cases that might “impinge on the [undefined] rights of LBGTQ+ people.”

Those “rights” are not defined because organized sodomy demands supremacy–and veto power over the free exercise of religion. Wherever there’s a conflict, “gays” are supposed to win. They’ve grown accustomed to it.

So yeah, sure, you can have religious liberty–as long as you don’t say, write, believe, or do anything that the “gays” don’t like.

Doesn’t sound like liberty to me.

The overriding purpose of America’s colleges and universities, these days, is to crank out more Far Left Crazy zealots. Anything else they might accomplish is an afterthought.

The sooner most of them go out of business, the better–before they put America out of business.


China is Buying Our Professors

Charles Lieber

Working for China

Lost in the hoo-hah over the Wuhan virus is another unsettling story involving our country’s not-so-good-for-us relationship with Red China.

Harvard University’s chemistry chairman has been formally charged with taking money from China–for, er, services rendered–and lying about it to the Dept. of Defense ( https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/harvard-s-chemistry-chair-charged-allegedly-lying-about-china-contract-n1124646?fbclid=IwAR2ljaNGaIpnlBQMxxB7SiBGX-xtWUT1QmpPAnr8sQQVe_H21eDreJyvPOc). The prof was paid $50,000 a month–by the Wuhan University Institute of Technology!–how about that?–for his work for China’s “Thousand Talents” program, a recruitment scheme which authorities say was involved in “stealing proprietary information and violating export controls.”

The professor has been placed on “indefinite administrative leave.” Not fired, though.

He’s not the only one working for China. In fact, China has bought up big shares of our, uh, “higher education” institutions. It seems to be part of a wider scheme to steal intellectual property, disseminate Chinese propaganda, and forge ahead of us technologically by acquiring another country’s research. They’ve also collected a fair-sized cadre of important lobbyists.

Honk if you think this is a good thing for America.

The sooner this monstrous communist regime collapses and is seen no more, the better for the entire world.

 


‘Collidge Big Shots Shred Constitution (Literally)’ (2015)

Image result for images of shredding the constitution

If America ever does go extinct, much of the blame will have to go to what we laughingly call our “educators.”

https://leeduigon.com/2015/11/09/collidge-big-shots-shred-constitution-literally/

Here they are demonstrating their contempt for our Constitution, which by law ensures their liberties. It’s a pity, how they use those liberties.

Which would you rather have to live without–the Constitution, or college professors?


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.
