$70,000 Worth of–What?

Image result for images of student delivers thesis in her underwear

Tuition at Cornell Looniversity is $70,000 and change per year: the high cost of twaddle.

A few days ago, a Cornell student presented her senior thesis in her underwear. (https://townhall.com/columnists/dennisprager/2018/05/15/cornell-student-presents-senior-thesis-in-her-underwear-n2480750)

First she showed up in cutoffs and an old shirt. When a professor ventured to ask whether such attire was appropriate to the occasion, the student went on a babble about “women’s rights” and “systemic oppression”–apparently there is now a “right” to deliver your thesis in your underwear–she stripped down to bra and panties and encouraged her fellow students in the audience to do the same: which 28 of 44 did.

The professors let it pass without taking any action or making any further objection.

I remember the defense of my thesis with some pleasure. No students–just me and some of the top-ranking profs in the Political Science Dept. My topic was “A Systemic Analysis of the Viking Age,” featuring the likes of Harald Bluetooth, Ragnar Hairy-Britches, and Olaf the Peacock: sort of a Norse Mafia. We all had a good time. Someone should’ve brought beer and peanuts.

But I didn’t do it in my underwear. They would’ve kicked me out so fast, my shadow would’ve lost me.

This is Higher Education, 2018. You work your fingers to the bone to send your daughter or your son to college, with the costs going as high as the sky, and this is what you get.

Don’t do it anymore. Please. Our country can’t stand it.

Chomsky: Christians Want to ‘Destroy the World’

Image result for images of noam chomsky ranting

St. Olaf, the patron saint of Norway, was martyred in battle. St. Olaf’s College, in Minnesota, continues to martyr him to this day.

The latest outrage: antediluvian leftid Noam Chomsky, a few days ago, gave a lecture there in which he accused “Republicans and Christians” of wanting “to destroy the world.” (https://www.campusreform.org/?ID=10875)

Yo, Paul, what you wanna do today? Yo, Peter–how about we destroy the world?

What bunk.

“On the basis of Christian ideals they’re saying let’s proceed to destroy the world,” prattled Chomsky. Was that from Jesus’ famous sermon on “Let’s Destroy the World”? Maybe Chomsky has a special Bible. Christians and Republicans, he blathered to an adoring audience of college nincompoops, have “a unique insanity which is dedicated to destroying organized human life.” Yeah, hey, let’s destroy organized human life.

How we gonna do that?

Mostly by not believing in Global Warming and Climbit Change, by using cars and electricity when those amenities ought to be reserved to our betters and not allowed to us peasants, and by not giving the government fantastic powers to control our lives and stifle all dissent.

Too bad St. Olaf himself couldn’t be there to hear this old poop. But I don’t think he would have appreciated the irony. He died trying to Christianize Norway. The college named for him wants to de-Christianize America.

Gee, what will our religion be then?

It will still be Christianity: because, in the end, the bad guys lose.


Down with… George Washington?

Image result for images of george washington leading troops

What can be said for a nation that hates its own history and wants to erase it? “R.I.P.”?

Students at George Washington University have gotten up a petition to replace the school’s old “Colonials” mascot–it’s someone dressed up as a kind of George Washington caricature–because, says the lump of protoplasm who started the petition, “It’s hard to have school pride when the thing that you have to be prideful for is so offensive” (https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2018/may/7/george-washington-university-snowflakes-rise-again/). The offensive thing being “colonialism.”

The record shows that America, once upon a time, was 13 British colonies. Then, with George Washington leading an army of volunteers, America fought Britain and became colonies no more, but an independent nation. How in the world does this make Washington a “colonialist,” when he successfully fought the colonial power in his country?

They want to replace the Colonial mascot with a hippo. Go figure.

Next–it’s inevitable–they’ll want to change the name of the university. To what, I think I’d rather not know.

Washington was justly called “the father of his country.” When he stepped down after two terms as our first president, instead of making himself a king or a president for life, as so many wanted him to do, he set an example whose power greatly helped to keep the United States of America a free republic for over 200 years.

It’s something the Left in America labors to destroy. And our colleges and looniversities enthusiastically are helping them to do it.

People, why, in Heaven’s name, and at numbingly great cost, do you continue to send your sons and daughters to these indoctrination factories?

Our public education system, the costliest in human history, is killing us.


You Can Be a Certified Social Justice Warrior! (for only $10,000)

Image result for images of social justice warriors

This is not a satire. We only wish it was.

Now, for a mere $10,000, you can become a “Harvard Certified Social Justice Warrior” by taking this 16-credit, 18-month course online (https://www.dailywire.com/news/30153/harvard-university-introduces-16-credit-social-emily-zanotti). It includes such dazzlingly useless subjects as “Chocolate, Culture, and the Politics of Food,” “Readings in Black Radicalism” (do you get extra credit if you can explain the difference between that and hating white people?), and “Storytelling and Global Justice.” And “you’ll learn about the core themes of social justice.” Oh, boy.

Is there a definition, somewhere, of “social justice”? Or is it just a lot of utterly meaningless left-wing crapola?

I wonder if Patty and I have $20,000 in our life savings to spend on a couple of these certificates. Do you?

I’d be very interested to know how many nincompoops wind up biting on this bait.

America’s universities–making America dumber by the day.


‘Is College Still Worth It?’

Tucker Carlson is a lot easier on our, um, “higher education” system than I am. If our own Western civilization ever goes belly-up with all four legs in the air, a la the Indus Valley civilization, or the Etruscans, the chief culprit will surely be our colleges and looniversities.

This is what happens when your model is “Everybody has to go to college!” Because there really aren’t that many people cut out for a higher education, or in need of one, you have to invent degree programs for them–bilge degrees that even a chowderhead can earn just by showing up. Women’s Studies, Queer Studies, I Are A Doofus Studies–and they all cost the earth. They not only saddle students with perpetual debt, but also debase their minds and character. But the system has to keep expanding, and it will keep trying to expand until the whole enterprise crashes and burns. I only pray it doesn’t take us all down with it in a general ruin.


‘Rutgers Students Need Group Therapy after Exposure to Someone Else’s Opinion’ (2016)

It’s hard for me to express the shame I feel, as a graduate of Rutgers. It was bad enough when I finished my college career in 1971; and they have, like Scrooge’s chain, labored on it ever since.

https://leeduigon.com/2016/02/23/rutgers-students-need-group-therapy-after-exposure-to-someone-elses-opinion/

Again I ask–what are we supposed to do with these millions of completely useless college grads, ten years down the road?

Racing at the speed of time toward the towering cliff-face of a dreadful social problem…


Now They’re Going After ‘Christian Privilege’

Image result for images of anti-Christian colleges

Let’s see what the chip-on-the-shoulder industry, aka our nation’s universities, has added to the menu now.

George Washington University–if Washington were alive today, he’d be leading an army against these people–will be hosting a 90-minute “training session” to combat “Christian privilege” and all the “unmerited perks” enjoyed by Christians in America (http://www.foxnews.com/us/2018/04/03/prestigious-university-hosting-student-training-seminar-on-how-to-combat-christian-privilege-in-america.html).

The “seminar” will be led by the looniversity’s LBGTQIA–they keep adding letters to it–resources director, and among other crapola, will focus on “LGBTQIA diversity and inclusion.” It is a project of the school’s Multicultural Student Services Center.

Obviously GWU has way too much money. Way too much.

Oh–they also say the problem is “white people.” But then it’s always white people. No racial animosity here, folks.

And you send your sons and daughters to these institutions because _________? Go ahead, fill in the blank. While you’re at it, see if you can spot the hate-mongers.

If anyone comes out of college sane, it’s got to be a systemic failure.


Wahoo! The 19th Annual White Privilege Conference!

(Thanks, I think, to “Unknowable” for the news tip)

It’s not that leftids are getting more asinine. They’ve just gotten bolder about letting us see them for who they really are.

Those lucky college students at the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs, will be getting academic credit for attending, online, the 19th annual White Privilege Conference at Grand Rapids, Michigan. Not-so-lucky students will be required to attend in person (https://mail.aol.com/webmail-std/en-us/suite).

But wow, dig this deal! You can apply these credits toward getting your “Graduate Certificate in Diversity, Social Justice, and Inclusion”! What, pray tell, are you supposed to do with that, once you’ve got it?

Taught primarily by world-class hypocrite white liberals, the conference will feature over 100 workshops with cool titles like “Breaking the Chains of Capitalism and White Supremacy,” “The Whiteness of Law,” and “How Whiteness Kills.” They’re not a bit shy anymore about admitting that they’re commies. They don’t like the laws, either. Laws are so much nicer when they’re made by a people’s soviet consisting of women of color. Or something like that.

Can you believe this preposterous event has already been held 18 times? And still white parents knock themselves out, working to pay the exorbitant cost of sending their offspring to these looniversities to get not-quite-degrees in Diversity, Social Justice, and Inclusion.

What’s wrong with you people???


U Cal Offers Grants for ‘Feminist Research’

See the source image

When can you be absolutely sure a looniversity has way too much money?

When it starts handing out $10,000 grants to professors who employ “feminist ethics and methodologies” in their research, on topics like “Feminist Perspectives on Food Waste” and “Gendered and Racialized Epistemologies” (https://www.campusreform.org/?ID=10688). The looniversity here is U Cal Davis.

And they’re doing it with your money, suckers. Money that you worked for. They’ve got this Feminist Research Institute that forks over your money to the silliest damnfool projects they can find. Then they laugh at you.

And you send your sons and daughters to these looniversities because_______. Gee, I keep doing that and no one has yet made a serious attempt to fill in the blank.

Maybe there ought to be a contest, with a cash prize to anyone who can cogently explain what “feminist ethics and methodologies” might be. A win here could be the start of a great career in comedy.

Higher education, hot dog! Wasting your money by the truckload–and despising you while they do it.
