College Speech Fascists Lose Another Lawsuit

Image result for images of academic freedom

After four years of being suspended from his livelihood, a professor at Marquette University in Wisconsin has won a lawsuit against the school and will be reinstated with full back pay and benefits (https://www.wnd.com/2018/09/prof-returns-after-beating-university-in-free-speech-fight/).

Supposedly a Catholic university, Marquette apparently opposes the word of God when it comes to sexual morality. The professor criticized, on his own blog, a graduate assistant for slapping down a student who didn’t support homosexual “marriage.” “Gay rights,” babbled the assistant, are now “undisputed” (really?), and anyone who doesn’t think so is “homophobic.” The professor was punished for criticizing that.

Marquette doesn’t much care for Catholic dogma, but it’s all aboard for Far Left liberal fascist dogma. But the prof has sued them and won. Won everything: the college got skunked by the Wisconsin Supreme Court. And sternly rebuked, too.

The fact is that speech codes and all the rest of the looniversity hogwash are blatantly unconstitutional and cannot be honored by any court of law. So we need more lawsuits of this nature–and the plaintiffs ought to start asking for punitive damages.

And the American people ought to demand an end to all public funding of the universities. Why pay them to train up little fascists?


‘Save the Planet from the “Save the Planet” Crowd’ (2015)

“Oooh-ooh, wait a minute–I’ve got it! Give us total control over, like, everything!”

Leftids make no secret of who they think they are–real smart people who are entitled to be gods–and what they want to do–take over the world and rule it as gods. We normal people have a very bad habit of not understanding that they mean it.

They keep revealing themselves in uncontrollable outbursts like this one, three years ago:

https://leeduigon.com/2015/07/09/save-the-planet-from-the-save-the-planet-crowd/

Right now it’s Global Warming/Climbit Chainge to serve as the rationale for allowing them to enslave us–Saving The Planet, don’t you know. Eventually it’ll be something else.

No one is more dangerous to our liberties than those who offer us utopia.


UN Takes Credit for ‘Changing the Weather’

Changing the weather… the old-fashioned way

In addition to being venal, mendacious, and vain, our world’s ruling class also seems to be going downright loony.

From one Patricia Espinosa, head honcho of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, this astonishing remark:

“By raising our ambition of #climateaction, we are not just changing the weather, we are building a better future for us all” (https://www.wnd.com/2018/09/official-claims-u-n-regs-changing-the-weather/).

Great Caesar’s ghost.

So they’re changing the weather, are they? Impressive! It used to be you had to hire a witch to do that. But we can do better. We’ve got the dodos at the United Nations. And they’re changing the weather even as we speak.

This comes on the heels of our free and independent press, to wit The Washington Post, accusing President Donald Trump of being “complicit” in Hurricane Florence. They want to blame him for starting the hurricane in the first place, but they won’t credit him with tamping it back down to a Category 1.

If only we give these creatures fantastic new powers to control every aspect of our lives, and also hand over lots and lots more money to them, they’ll see to it that there’s no more bad weather. The Japanese government recently admonished its citizens “to go to sleep earlier” and not stay up watching TV ’cause it uses electricity. Do the people get a government bedtime story to help them into the Land of Nod?

God save us from fools who think they can save the world.


Transgender ‘Students’ Defend Gulags

Image result for images of solzhenitsyn weeping

Alexander Solzhenitsyn, author of The Gulag Archipelago, is spinning in his grave.

As part of their feud with feminists, “transgender rights campaigners”–a euphemism for seriously disturbed college students–at Goldsmith Looniversity, London, have argued that the infamous Soviet gulags were really nice places for “education” and “rehabilitation” (https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2018/09/11/soviet-labour-camps-compassionate-educational-institutions-say/). Not forced labor concentration camps in Siberia.

Feminists resented screwed-up males trying to hijack women’s privileges by claiming themselves to be women. Well, that got the trannies going, and one of them tweeted that  the objecting feminists ought to be sent to a gulag for “re-education.” And that got the feminists going.

In support of their recommendation to send those who disagree with them to the gulag–there aren’t any gulags, yet, in Britain: but give it time–the trannies, er, “defended” their preposterous comments. Like so:

“The ideas of TERFS–” I don’t know what a TERF is, and I prefer to leave it that way for as long as possible–“and anti-trans bigots literally kill and ought to be eradicated through re-education.” And “Sending a bigot to one [a gulag] is actually a compassionate non-violent course of action.”

No, there wasn’t any violence at the gulags! Just a lot of classroom time, partying, cross-country skiing in that bracing Siberian winter, and maybe some amateur theatrics. Sort of a summer camp for adults, plus unendurable cold. Oh, and the food was really good, too!

Go ahead, build a bunch of gulags and send your rivals there; and then, once they get into power, they can send you there. Plenty of relaxing gulag time for all.

It is probably unnecessary to comment further on the deranged wickedness that now constitutes a college education.

‘Britain Moves to Abolish Adulthood’ (2014)

Image result for images of yelling at child doing calisthenics

Our masters only lie to us for our own good–right? Because we’re too stupid to know what’s good for us, we need them to control our lives.

They’re working on that. Like so:

https://leeduigon.com/2014/11/03/britain-moves-to-abolish-adulthood/

Yessiree, if you want health care later on in life, you’d better do what we tell you now! Unhand that hamburger! Get off that couch and knock off 50 pushups!

Don’t you wonder why adults would ever tolerate this?


Why I’m With the GOP

Image result for images of charging elephant

From time to time, I take flak for being unabashedly Republican. That is not to say I trust or respect the GOP leadership: saying that would be untrue. But ours is a two-party system, and third parties are nothing but a waste of time and votes. You’re either with the Stupid Party or the Evil Party.

Democrats are wedded–and “welded” might be an even better word–to principles and policies that are irredeemably wicked, to say nothing of insane. I do remember a time when normal people used to be Democrats, but that time seems to have passed. So you might say I’m a Republican because it’s the most practical way of opposing the Democrat Party.

If you vote for any Democrat, here’s what you’re voting for, and make no mistake about it: abortion; “transgender” stuff; same-sex marriage, and you’d better endorse it or else; criminalization of religious and political beliefs; criminalization of “climate change denial” (don’t laugh: it was on Hillary’s platform in 2016); erasure of our immigration laws; disastrous experiments in “open borders”; destruction of created wealth by burdensome and non-helpful regulations; the return of the “mandate” portion of Obamacare; subordination of American interests to the UN and other “global” bodies; an all-out plunge into laws and regulations to fight imaginary “climate change”; transformation of official government agencies, that we all pay for, into partisan organs of the Democrat Party, charged with stifling dissent and opposition; the purposeful embrace of socialism…

Had enough? Need I go on?

Let me make the usual disclaimer: there are plenty of corrupt swamp rats in the GOP. It would be an excellent thing to weed them out. The Republican donor class would love to inundate America with a flood of cheap labor from the Third World. These Republicans are not our friends, and there are plenty of them. Nevertheless, the Republican Party is the only tool in the box right now, and we’d better use it.

The Democrat Party must be totally defeated. Realization of its goals would be the thorough destruction of America. They have not been bashful about telling us what those goals are.

It is the party of Antifa.

It must be utterly defeated and driven into oblivion, never to return.

And then we can start weeding out the vipers in the GOP.


‘PC Thought Police Invade Fantasy’ (2015)

Image result for images of h.p. lovecraft fantasy award

Don’t look at it too long! It’ll turn you into a racist.

Nowhere is safe from Social Justice Warriors. Not even fantasy.

https://leeduigon.com/2015/11/16/pc-thought-police-invade-fantasy/

It’s true that as a young man in the 1920s, H.P. Lovecraft was what some today would call a “racist.” In fact, he had little face-to-face contact with people in general, and had no opportunities to practice racism. Later on in his short life, he became a socialist. But I don’t hold his naivete and inexperience against him. The great fantasy writer knew very little of the real world.

Our friend “jessicafischerqueen” recently went into a local bookstore, looking for some collections of H.P. Lovecraft’s stories. There weren’t any on the shelves. It turned out that they kept the Lovecraft books under the counter, like pornography–because Lovecraft was “a racist.” So you shouldn’t read anything he wrote!

And you need Them to make your decisions for you! You couldn’t possibly read an H.P. Lovecraft horror story without being turned into a raging racist! You couldn’t possibly just ignore the writer’s occasional throwaway lines that wouldn’t pass muster today. Oh, no! Today you read The Case of Charles Dexter Ward; tomorrow you join the KKK.

Are you tired of Them making your decisions for you?


My Newswithviews Column, Aug. 23 (‘Internet Censorship: Running Wild’)

Image result for images of censorship

Since I wrote this, a reader, “John Jr.,” has alerted me to some further information about WordPress deciding to ban Fellowship of the Minds. This argues that WordPress succumbed to heavy pressure from the fake news giant, The New York Times. I haven’t had time to check that.

https://newswithviews.com/internet-censorship-running-wild/

Leftids don’t believe in free speech. The only freedoms they believe in are bogus “rights” invented just the other day: the “right” to enjoy any kind of fornication that your heart desires, the right to sponge off normal people, and the right to silence anyone who isn’t you.


First Alex Jones, then Fellowship of the Minds–Who’s Next?

Image result for images of gagging someone with duct tape

Are we headed back to those good old days, longed for by President *Batteries Not Included, when there were only three news networks and no alternative sources of news?

So first they kicked Alex Jones off the social media, and now WordPress has shut down Fellowship of the Minds for supposedly violating its “Terms of Service” (http://jamesfetzer.blogspot.com/2018/08/james-tracy-wordpressautomattic-shuts.html). No warning was given. No explanation has been offered.

WordPress is owned and operated by Automattic Inc. I looked up the Terms of Service to see if I could somehow deduce how FOTM had violated them. Let me quote what seem to be the only applicable lines.

“Our service is designed to give you as much control and ownership over what goes on your website as possible and encourage you to express yourself freely. However, be responsible in what you publish. In particular, make sure that none of the prohibited items (like spam, viruses, or serious threats of violence) appear on your website” (https://en.wordpress.com/tos/).

None of that seems to apply to Fellowship of the Minds. But there are a few remarks by Automattic CEO Matt Mullenweg as to the desirability of shutting out “hate speech,” a term which remains undefined, and “egregiously fake or harmful things.”

The buzz on the Internet is that both Alex Jones and Fellowship of the Minds were censored and silenced for suggesting that the Sandy Hook school shooting was a hoax perpetrated by the Obama regime to inspire gun control legislation. I do not know whether either of them actually said that. It’s a conspiracy theory, and I don’t like conspiracy theories. (I especially don’t like the one that says Donald Trump “colluded” with T*H*E  R*U*S*S*I*A*N*S to steal the 2016 election from the rightful president, our beloved Hillary Clinton. But I don’t see the media shutting down that one.) I don’t believe in “false flag operations.” The only one that ever really happened was in 1939, when Hitler tried to make it look like Poland had invaded Germany. It fooled no one.

But let’s say, for the sake of argument, that FOTM did claim that Sandy Hook was a false flag operation. So what? If they can’t prove their case, eventually hardly anyone will believe them. I don’t know that there are all that many people who believe them now.

So you make what strikes a lot of people as a ridiculous statement–and you get cast into the outer darkness for it? The claim that Sandy Hook was a hoax rubs many people the wrong way; and if they believe that Fellowship of the Minds made such a claim, that makes Fellowship a really easy target for the censors. Few rallied to defend Alex Jones. Probably few will rally to defend FOTM. Because what they are supposed to have said is extremely unpopular.

Free speech includes unpopular speech. In fact, if it doesn’t, the entire concept of free speech is rendered meaningless.

As it already has been, for liberals.

Meanwhile, the rest of us non-liberals on WordPress are left wondering, each of us, when it’s going to be our turn to be silenced. It’s unfair to lay everything on President Trump, when it really ought to be Congress taking action against what has become, in effect, a viewpoint monopoly; but most of the time it seems Donald Trump is the only leader in town who’ll go to bat for the American people.

C’mon, Ted Cruz! Prove me wrong.
