As part of mandatory “diversity training” (barf bag, please), students at the University of Oklahoma are compelled to say what the “trainers” want them to say, in order to complete the course (https://www.campusreform.org/article?id=17627). For instance, your responses to questions must show total approval of all things “transgender.”
The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) has tried to reach a compromise by asking the looniversity to make the program optional instead of compulsory–well, you can guess how far they’ve gotten with that. The villains have rejected any compromise; so probably the only way to restore a semblance of liberty to the campus is to win a lawsuit.
Where is it written that as soon as you enroll in college, you lose your First Amendment rights? All of a sudden they can compel you to say what they want to hear? As if you were a parrot?
And I hope this puts to rest the idea that just because your school is located in a Red state, it’s immune to Far Left Crazy.
Defund the universities.
And stop sending your kids there to have their brains sucked out.
In 2014 someone hoaxed passersby, telling them the Speaker of the House admitted he didn’t like Mexican food and asking them what they thought should be done about it. And a lot of little fascists said some action ought to be taken against him because not liking Mexican food makes you a Racist and by golly the country can’t tolerate that!
By now they’ve had some years to work on their position to make it even more irrational, unjust, and stupid. Now you don’t even have to be white to be a White Supremacist. Any opposition to these vermin, no matter how trivial or ineffectual, has them howling for your head on a pole.
Democrats–think how great America would be without them.
I wasn’t able to write a Newswithviews column this week. But since leftids have stolen our country out from under us and are trying to kill it before we can get it back, I thought this 2019 essay worth revisiting.
Make no mistake about it: theirs is a country-destroying ideology that littered the 20th century with the corpses of the innocent. Leftist governments create poverty, fear, mendacity, crime, and violence.
As we’ll shortly see for ourselves. It’s already happening.
Personally, I can’t think of anything more demeaning, hateful, or wrath-provoking than being forced to say something that I don’t believe. I’m glad they hadn’t yet gotten into this when I was in college.
There are still well-meaning people who think that if only we could have a meaningful dialogue with leftids, we’d come to appreciate each other’s humanity and find ways to resolve our differences. And then we could all go feed the unicorns.
She described the perpetual Portland riots as “peaceful protests”–honest, it only hurts when I laugh–and at the same time blamed President Trump and evil “federal officials” for the whole business. Meanwhile, a lot of the rest of the country wondered why the president didn’t intervene to stop the riots. But the governor wants it both ways.
What exactly did she mean by “eradicate”? Make it against the law to have voted for Donald Trump? That would be an ex post facto law, explicitly forbidden by the Constitution–but how many Democrats–or college graduates–would know that? Or care?
She likes Antifa, though. Gotta give her that.
So let’s have a good old-fashioned chin-wag, Ms. Governor. How much time do we have before you call in your goon squad to eradicate me?
What has gone wrong with our civics, that we wound up having people like this holding office in America?

Fishmouth Community College has announced a plan to revoke all the associate degrees earned by everyone who voted for President Donald Trump in 2020.
“And not only that!” said College President C. Babbington Whoremaster. “We’re also gonna take back everything they ever learned while they were here!”
The debate now focuses on whether anybody ever did learn anything at Fishmouth.
A Personal Note: I triple-dog dare Rutgers University to take back my degree! In fact, I’m kind of offended that they haven’t yet tried to do that. I mean, come on–I supported President Trump with everything I had! How dare they ignore me? Hey, Rutgers, here I am!
Tell you what. If you want my Political Science degree, you can freakin’ well buy it back! And make sure you adjust for inflation: I want the 2021 cost of tuition.
Y’know, that’s a pretty great idea, if we’re ever in a position to do it: force the colleges and universities to refund the money of anyone who’s unsatisfied with what they got by way of higher education. A lot of goods and services come with money-back guarantees; but I don’t think public education could survive it. Do you?
This has the air of a trial balloon. Let the stupid students run it up the flagpole, muse Harvard University bigwigs, and if anyone salutes it, we can take ownership!
So unnamed “students” at Harvard are supposedly circulating a petition to revoke the degrees earned, mostly years ago, by senators, Congressmen, and members of President Donald Trump’s administration. Ooh-ooh! Senator Cruz, we’re gonna revoke that Harvard degree you got 30 years ago! That’ll learn you!
The, um, “petition” says President Trump’s supporters must be punished for “spreading disinformation and mistrust.” Harvard officials have said nothing about it, for or against. They’re waiting to see how it flies.
Here are the facts, kiddies. As collidge students, you don’t deal in facts. But here they are nonetheless.
Fact: The 2020 election featured massive fraud, without which it would have been totally impossible to get Monkey Joe elected. The evidence that this is so is more than abundant.
Fact: The ones spreading lies and scary stories are Democrats and their nooze media sock puppets.
Fact: President Trump sided with the American people against “The Swamp” of corruption in Washington, D.C.–for which our corrupt political class finally destroyed him after spending four whole years trying to overthrow his presidency.
Fact: A college education is not worth the paper it’s printed on anymore.
