Crowed one of the tinpot tyrants on the council, this is “really good behavior economics!” What the hell is that? Who gave these little Mussolini wannabes any kind of authority over what anybody else wants to eat?
Jabbered another, Berkeley is now “a world leader in healthy living!”
What kind of spineless worms consent to be governed by such fat-heads? Who wants to live in a place where they won’t let you buy a Dr. Pepper?
Sheesh! And I thought Joe Collidge was only joking when he was talking about getting rid of everything.
A professor of politics at Converse College, South Carolina, has kept his job after refusing to take “mandatory diversity training.”
Associate Professor Jeff Poelvoorde called the mandatory indoctrination “an assault to the dignity and intelligence of the professoriate, in fact, an insult to anyone’s intelligence and dignity” (https://www.campusreform.org/?ID=15739).
The college had threatened him with termination if he didn’t take the so-called course; but when he stood up to them, they backed down. They must’ve known they couldn’t possibly win an inevitable lawsuit, and didn’t want to shell out for damages.
Could we have a lot more of this, please! Here’s a brave man who’s shown the way–follow him through the breach. “Diversity training” is garbage that has to be scooped up and thrown away forever.
In 1993, when Otto Scott wrote this article for Chalcedon, liberals were still looking for “scientific” reasons to brand as a Nazi anyone who disagreed with them. And “Science” was only too willing to provide them.
“The Adorno Scale,” invented in the early 1950s, was supposed to be a “scientific” means of measuring just how far gone in fascism are whatever people you don’t like. Nowadays, of course, they don’t bother: “Systemic Racism,” “White Privilege” and all that simply state you’re automatically guilty if you’re white. They don’t need any “science” to condemn you. Even leftism has been dumbed down.
Dr. Adorno toyed with the idea of including “hostility to modern art” among his list of “fascist” traits, but dropped it when he convinced himself that the typical American slob had never seen any modern art. You don’t dig Jackson Pollock? Heil, Hitler!
Twenty-seven years later, “Settled Science” is still making mischief, still trying to rule the world, still trying to turn ordinary people into livestock. We don’t hear much of the Adorno Scale anymore, but you can be sure its legacy lives on at every looniversity in the Western world.

Home-grown nooze sources spun the story to make sound like the senator was never in the slightest danger and just lying about a lot of harmless MPPs. Uh-uh. That’s why police had to escort the Pauls back to their hotel. You’d think a U.S. Senator could walk home from the White House without getting molested–but not if he’s a Republican.
That profound silence you hear is Democrat senators not defending their colleague. But that’s only because they’re always on the rioters’ side. That’s how they’ve become the Riot Party.
The little girl was made the subject of an “investigation”–who do these maggots think they are–because she was slow to recognize and applaud some little boy’s “transitioning” into a phony parody of a girl. This was in California, of course, where else–there, “misgendering” is a crime. They’ll let you go scot-free for robbery, but don’t you dare use the wrong pronoun!
This is what our public schools have been doing, the last few years, and this is what they will go back to doing when we re-open them.
Seek and ye shall find. Seeking something to write about for Newswithviews this week, I found this.
A professor of “ethics” at Western Michigan University has called for “moral enhancements” to increase Americans’ “ability to be empathetic or altruistic or cooperative” (https://www.campusreform.org/?ID=15488). This is supposed to end the COVID-19 pandemic. And, he added, it can also be used to make people believe in Climate Change.
How quickly can we defund our looniversities? How much time do we have before they bury us in wickedness and stupidity?
We are not told what these “morality enhancements” would be–only that the government could and should add them to our water supply. What kind of “ethics” does this jidrool teach? I mean, he’s talking about some kind of pill to make everybody do whatever it is he wants us to do. He’s not shy about using the word “coercion.”
People pay him to teach this horse-schiff to their children.
From now on, Syracuse University is going to punish you for being present whenever, wherever, an “act of hate” is committed: the bystander will be as guilty as the person who actually does the deed.
Disregarding the question that immediately presents itself in 10-foot-tall flaming orange neon letters, “Then who the devil wants to go to Syracuse?”, we come to the next question: what exactly is an “act of hate”?
What–are the creators and enforcers of these policies entirely free from hate? They hate the haters, don’t they? So what would they consider an act of hate, to be punished by university authorities?
How about wearing a MAGA hat, or a “Re-elect President Trump” button? Would those be “acts of hate”? We know, don’t we, that hardly anyone anymore dares express a non-left-wing opinion on any subject. But suppose you said or did something that exposed you as a pro-lifer. Would you be deemed guilty of “hate”?
What would happen if you said, “White people are to blame for every single thing that’s wrong in the world, and they ought to be killed off”? Think you could say that without the U getting all bent out of shape? But of course you could! College professors everywhere say things like that every day.
Syracuse is going to install “new methods” of surveillance in the dorms and elsewhere. If you happen to be standing somewhere in the student lounge when An Act Of Hate is committed, and the spy-cam spots you–well, again, why did you want to go there in the first place?
Now, could we establish this new legal doctrine outside the fascist bell jar of the university? Like, all the customers who were in the bank when it got robbed, they’re also guilty? No doubt this would appeal to Democrats: they’d throw everyone in jail except the robber. But wouldn’t the whole thing be just blatantly unconstitutional?
We are dealing with head cases who think it makes them righteous, virtuous, to hate hate. The fact that we let head cases take over our schools and universities speaks very poorly of our judgment.
Let’s see if Syracuse’s “bystander guilt” formula spreads to other colleges.
You’re paying how much to go there? You couldn’t find anything else to do with all that money?
Honk if you agree there must be no more public money for the universities. Shouldn’t be any more of your money, either.

In addition to fists and blunt instruments, the peaceful protesters trotted out a shotgun and tried to shoot the officer. That they somehow missed with a shotgun at close range is the silver lining here.
No Democrats objected to the assault. And apparently the officer and his girlfriend are not black enough for their lives to matter. Neither are the black homeowners, small business owners, and innocent bystanders who’ve had their lives and property destroyed by… really, it’s sad… “Black Lives Matter.” You could cut the hypocrisy with a knife.
The peaceful protesters didn’t have to worry about catching the Wuhan Chinese Doomsday Virus because the virus always spares Far Left get-togethers.
