Race bully threatens white SFSU student, dreadlock police cry ‘cultural appropriation’

campus-assault

Not a week goes by that some college campus proves yet again that America’s future tyrants are ready and willing to plunge us into 1,000 years of darkness as soon as the opportunity presents itself.

San Francisco State University wins that dubious distinction this week, where a black woman literally cornered some dreadlock-sporting white kid, grabbed him by the clothes, and harassed him about “cultural appropriation.”

Yes, we have reached the point where Social Justice Obsessives are so mentally unstable that they deem themselves Haircut Police and start physical confrontations with complete strangers.

“You’re saying that I can’t have a hair style because of your culture? Why?” said the stunned student.

“Yeah, because it’s my culture,” the woman replied.

Here’s where it gets Twilight Zone-quality weird. The woman grabs the guy as he tries leave her nuttiness behind, but when he tries to push her off she then accuses him of touching her!

“You put your hands on me, you gonna learn,” the race-psycho said.

When will colleges reach peak stupidity? Professors pump their students with totalitarian mind gruel and then the rest of us have to deal with the blowback in the real world. A small part of me wishes I was back in college so I could deal with these bullies face to face.

Here is the statement SFSU released once the story spread like wildfire on social media, via KRON-4.

“We are aware of the video made of an incident which occurred on campus yesterday afternoon. University police were called to the scene of the incident when it occurred. The two individuals involved in the incident are not San Francisco State University employees. Further, no criminal charges have been pressed at this time to the University’s knowledge.

San Francisco State University promotes the rights of the campus community to engage in free speech, but does not condone behavior that impedes the safety or well-being of others. We are taking the matter seriously and will promptly and thoroughly investigate this incident through applicable University channels, including our campus student conduct procedures.”

SFSU, if it is anything like most institutions of “higher learning,” does not promote free speech. Ask author Ben Shapiro, who routinely has presentations derailed because of threats and hecklers, if free speech exists on the modern college campus.  The answer: “No.”

Imagine a situation where the white kid pushed this female bully the moment she laid hands on him, she fell to the ground, and then filed a complaint minutes later. How much do you want to bet that he would have been disciplined by SFSU administrators instead of her?

Monstrous seeds have been spread across the country and they are bearing bad fruit. It is not likely that pensive white kids with dreadlocks will be able to uproot these disgusting plants, but hopefully there are others who will answer the call. If not, then stay tuned here as I continue to chronicle America’s descent into politically correct madness.

Heidi Czerwiec, PC professor, vows 9-1-1 calls for all ROTC training

Heidi Czerwiec UND ROTC

Sane Americans read the news on their laptops this week and wondered how it was possible that college students were left “afraid” and shaken by pro-Donald Trump chalk scribbles at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia. The answer can be found by looking at those in charge of so-called “higher education.” Take, for instance, University of North Dakota college professor Heidi Czerwiec, who made national news for vowing to call 9-1-1 every time she saw ROTC training in the quad outside her window.

Anyone who has been to a university with an ROTC program knows that cadets are unmistakable. One would have to be an idiot — or a poetry professor at UND — to not know the difference between ROTC cadets who are getting ready to train and, say, Jim-Bob McCooter wandering around campus with an AR-15 after he’s had one too many to drink.

US Army ROTC cadet command

Does Professor Czerwiec call 9-1-1 when she sees a cop on campus? Readers should not put it past her since the university had already informed faculty and staff via email that ROTC training would happen.

Regardless, in addition to a disgusting voicemail she sent to the ROTC program ( “You’ve created terror. You’ve achieved it.”), she wrote a letter to the Grand Forks Herald that said:

“I look up from my office computer to see two figures in camo with guns outside my window. My first thought is for my students’ and my safety: I grab my phone, crawl under my desk and call 911. The dispatcher keeps me on the line until someone can see if ROTC is doing maneuvers.

I can barely talk—first, with fear, and then with rage when the dispatcher reports back that yes, in fact, I’ve probably just seen ROTC cadets, though they’re going to send an officer to check because no one has cleared it with them. They thank me for reporting it.

A few minutes later, a university officer calls me back—not to reassure me, but to scold me for calling 911. He says ROTC has permission to do this exercise. When I tell him that this was news to 911 and that they encouraged me to call whenever I see a gun on campus, he seems surprised.

He also tells me that ROTC will be doing these exercises for the next couple weeks. So I reply that I guess I’ll be calling 911 for the next couple weeks—and I will. Every time.

So I reply that I guess I’ll be calling 9-1-1 for the next couple weeks and I will. Every time,” Czerwiec wrote. “It’s not my job to decide whether people carrying guns at school are an actual threat. It’s my job to teach and to get home to my family. It’s already highly inappropriate to conduct unnecessary military maneuvers in the middle of the quad. But with school shootings on the increase and tensions at UND running high, it’s especially irresponsible. We’re already under financial and emotional attack. We don’t need to feel under physical attack, too.”

There’s only one problem with Czerwiec’s letter — it’s wrong. The University told WDAZ-8 that it did go through all the proper channels to clear its training. An email saying, “ROTC cadets will train in and around the quad, and may carry military equipment, including dummy weapons” was sent to staff one week before the training took place.

Do you know who misses emails on ROTC training? Answer: The kind of woman who would call an ROTC training center and say “You’ve created terror. You’ve achieved it,” because she was the only dunce on campus who didn’t read her email or have the common sense to know what ROTC cadets look like.

Perhaps Rob Port over at Say Anything Blog said best:

“Her angry voicemail left for the ROTC seems downright unhinged, as was her threat in the letter to the Grand Forks Herald to call 911 every time she sees the ROTC. She [now says] … that she only meant that she would call when she sees something ‘suspicious that is not obviously part of a drill,’ but that wasn’t at all clear from her letter. Words mean things. You’d think someone working in a university English department would understand this.”

You are sadly mistaken, Mr. Port. Professors like Ms. Czerwiec are more interested in creating “Safe Space America” than preparing students for the real world.

‘Safe Space’ America: Students in ‘pain’ over pro-Trump chalk scribbles

 

Chalk

I went to U.S. Army Basic Training at Fort Benning, Georgia, in 1997. Emory University is roughly 125 north of that, which is incredibly interesting when one considers the following:

  • At one location an objective observer will find scores of young infantrymen who are generally unfazed by any insult, no matter how crass or mean.
  • The second location, however, is home to students who actually claim to be in “pain” over pro-Trump chalk scribbles.

The Emory Wheel originally reported the story on Tuesday but it has been picked up by countless media outlets since then.

The Associated Press wrote Wednesday:

A flurry of chalk scrawls supporting Donald Trump on the Emory University campus sparked a demonstration by students who demanded and were granted a meeting with the president, saying the messages made them feel concerned and frightened. At least one of them said he got death threats after the protest.

The students viewed the messages as intimidation, and they voiced “genuine concern and pain” as a result, Emory President Jim Wagner wrote Tuesday, one day after meeting with 40 to 50 student demonstrators.

The Atlanta university on Wednesday provided The Associated Press with a copy of Wagner’s letter, in which he said students confronted by Trump’s name in chalk “heard a message about values regarding diversity and respect that clash with Emory’s own.”

Students at Monday’s protest chanted, “You are not listening! Come speak to us, we are in pain!” shortly before Wagner agreed to meet with them…”

Pain would be standing near an Islamic terrorist as he blows himself up in a crowded international airport in Brussels. Pain would be what a soldier feels when he wakes up in a hospital bed after an I.E.D. blast in Iraq or Afghanistan. Pain would be a whole lot of things, but it would not be a pampered Emory University student — whose mom and dad are shelling out $45,000 a year for a degree in Gender Studies — reading Donald Trump’s name in chalk.

Brussels Attack

Think it can’t get worse? Think again.

“I’m supposed to feel comfortable and safe [here],” a student told school officials, the Emory Wheel reported. “But this man is being supported by students on our campus and our administration shows that they, by their silence, support it as well. … I don’t deserve to feel afraid at my school.”

Donald Trump says he is going to deport all 12 million illegal immigrants, but he may want to find a way to deport 12 million natural-born citizens who are “afraid” of chalk art instead.

The students attending these institutions of “higher learning” should be ashamed of themselves. They are soft. They are weak. They are fragile infants trapped in adults’ bodies — and they will ultimately be the ones who must face down the countless threats facing the nation in the years to come. What makes the whole situation even worse is that those entrusted with preparing their minds for the challenges of tomorrow have instead opted to entertain inane and babyish behavior.

The Emory Wheel continued:

The University will review footage “up by the hospital [from] security cameras” to identify those who made the chalkings, [University President James] Wagner told the protesters. He also added that if they’re students, they will go through the conduct violation process, while if they are from outside of the University, trespassing charges will be pressed.

Pathetic.

I attended the University of Southern California when I exited the military many years ago and was stunned at the ideological inculcation practiced by most professors. I worried about the effects it would have on future generations and spent countless hours offering students an alternative (e.g., my time as the Program Coordinator for The Heritage Foundation’s Young Leaders Program). I still continue those efforts through this blog and other endeavors, but it appears as though the rip tide of political correctness has taken the nation out to sea.

Knowledgable swimmers can easily escape rip tides, but at this point it appears as though millions of Americans have made the conscious decision to drown.

Paris terror attacks expose idiocy of American college activists, ‘safe spaces’ for ‘hurtful’ words

Paris attack emergency workers

American college students spent the last week demanding “safe spaces” on campuses because people can be jerks — and then the Paris terror attacks exposed them all as a bunch of pathetic babies.

A university president resigned on Monday because a bunch of sheltered kids didn’t realize human beings were capable of doing something as bizarre as scrawling “poo-swastikas” on bathroom walls — and then a group of terrorists slaughtered over 100 innocent people across Paris.

Reuters reported Friday:

For the second time in less than a year, France and the world are asking how carnage could strike at the heart of this much-loved city, including at a concert hall barely a few hundred steps from January’s deadly attack on the satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo.

“As we went to our car we saw dozens of people running out of the Bataclan,” local resident Caterina Giardino, an Italian national, said of the 19th century theatre-turned-music venue where gunman clad in black systematically killed nearly 100.

“Many of them were covered with blood, people were screaming,” she added, sitting on a bench with a friend as she recalled how one young man emerged from the concert hall with the bloody imprint of a hand on his shirt.

The exact sequence of gun and bomb assaults on the concert hall, a sports stadium and restaurants in the French capital that left at least 120 dead is still unclear. …

For his government, as for the French, the coming days are likely to raise as many questions as answers.

To add insult to injury, ABC News aired Millennials’ favorite politician, President Barack Obama, hours earlier saying ISIL was “contained.” (The segment was taped on Thursday.)

“I don’t think they’re gaining strength. What is true is that from the start, our goal has been first to contain and we have contained them. They have not gained ground in Iraq, and in Syria they’ll come in, they’ll leave, but you don’t see this systemic march by ISIL across the terrain.” — Barack Obama. Nov. 13, 2015. ABC News, Good Morning America.

Regular readers of this blog will note that it was only two days ago that I said, “Sometimes, people say mean things. It apparently hurts [Ithaca college students’] feelings more than it hurts the skulls and spinal cords of gay men thrown off tall buildings by the Islamic State group in Syria. And so, there must be a “no confidence” vote in Ithaca College president Tom Rochon.

France1

Mark Steyn echoed this sentiment Friday in his excellent piece “The Barbarians Are Inside, And There Are No Gates.”

Twenty-four hours ago, I said on the radio apropos the latest campus “safe space” nonsense: This is what we’re going to be talking about when the mullahs nuke us.

Almost. When the Allahu Akbar boys opened fire, Paris was talking about the climate-change conference due to start later this month, when the world’s leaders will fly in to “solve” a “problem” that doesn’t exist rather than to address the one that does. But don’t worry: we already have a hashtag (#PrayForParis) and doubtless there’ll be another candlelight vigil of weepy tilty-headed wankers. Because as long as we all advertise how sad and sorrowful we are, who needs to do anything?

#PrayForMizzou. #BringBackourGirls. #MillionStudentMarch. #Kony2012.

The Twitter hashtag can be leveraged to disseminate important information and inspire people to action, but most Americans simply use it to convey that they care. They really, really care. Unfortunately for them, solving complex problems require more than just words. It requires action, sacrifice, and an ability to deal with conflict, which is something “safe space” junkies are not willing to provide.

If you get a chance, pray for the victims of the Paris terror attack — but do it alone in your room at night and then don’t tell anyone about it. In short, do the exact opposite with college activists standing in the middle of a quad with a bullhorn typically do. You’ll be glad you did.

Mizzou gives up ‘poo-swastika’ images after pressure; details make race fiasco more bizarre

Dumb and Dumber bathroom

The University of Missouri really didn’t want to release its police report on the infamous “poo-swastika.” It took an enormous amount of pressure for cave-in to happen, but now that it did the details make its president’s resignation even weirder.

Mizzou officials played it by the book. They did everything a reasonable institution would do in the aftermath of such a report (e.g., contacting the university’s Title IX office, executive director of Mizzou Hillel, and minority communities on campus). They even zeroed in on a suspect.

Here’s where it gets…interesting.

The following feedback was given by Salama Gallimore, the lead investigator in the university’s Title IX office, to Gateway Hall coordinator Susan Cohn. Copies of the email exchanges were obtained by The Federalist.

“We did have a incident that was just reported last week where an intoxicated individual said ‘bitch ass nigga’ to a white resident when having a heated interaction with multiple black residents in the third floor lounge, which is the same floor this bathroom incident happened on. The individual that reported said he was offended by this but felt like it was not directed at him or the other black residents in the lounge. …

The accused student in the above incident has also been reported to have made anti-Semitic remarks to the members of a Jewish fraternity. It is possible that the aforementioned student may be responsible for the swastika vandalism as he is a resident of Gateway. Since the student has allegedly engaged in acts of racism and anti-Semitism, I feel that it is important to consider that the swastika drawn in fecal matter (even if it was not drawn by the student under investigation) was meant to offend and threaten a larger population of our campus community in addition to Jewish students.”

Let us recap so this is abundantly clear:

  • Concerned Students 1950 is upset about Mizzou’s handling of the Oct. 24 “poo-swastika” incident, even though the situation was expeditiously dealt with.
  • A Jewish student gets into an argument with a black student in his dorm — one previously charged with anti-semitic remarks — and days later the poo-swastika appears. (We are never definitively given the suspect’s name or race, but that is the most logical conclusion based on, “an intoxicated individual said ‘bitch ass nigga’ to a white resident when having a heated interaction with multiple black residents.”)
  • The actions by someone who reasonable people will conclude is a black student are used as evidence that black students should not feel safe on campus.
  • The university president resigns Monday, Nov. 9.

What are we left to conclude from this whole fiasco?

Answer: Like human waste smeared on a dormitory wall, Mizzou and its students are an intellectual mess. The teachers are a mess, the administrators are a mess, and the students are a mess.

If you want to get an education, going to an expensive university is probably not the prudent choice in 2015.

Poop Mizzou

Accruing tens-of-thousands of dollars in student loans for the gobbledygook dished out by most institutions is a bad idea. Unless a student places a high value on the nepotism-factor supplied by prestigious universities, it is better to look for the school that respected but easy on the wallet.

Ithaca College students jump on Mizzou race train: Professors now reap what they have sown

Ithaca College

Somewhere in between Gender Studies 101, partying, putting money on meal cards, and sexual exploration, Ithaca College students are allegedly bombarded with racial injustices. Sometimes, people say mean things. It apparently hurts their feelings more than it hurts the skulls and spinal cords of gay men thrown off tall buildings by the Islamic State group in Syria. And so, there must be a “no confidence” vote in Ithaca College president Tom Rochon.

College faculty and staff must now reap what they have sown.

Islamic State gay execution

The Ithaca Journal reported Wednesday:

Members of the campus community walked out Wednesday “for all the injustices students of color face on this campus and other colleges nationally. With University of Missouri’s president stepping down, we demand Rochon to do the same as it is vital to fight against both covert and overt racism in all places of education and empowerment,” according to the event Facebook page.

In a statement issued after the protest, POC at IC said they want to make one thing loud and clear: “We are here, and we demand change.” …

“Diversity and inclusion here at Ithaca College is nothing more than an image,” one protester said into a microphone. Many in the crowd responded with cheers and clapping. …

Those sentiments were echoed by a woman who stood with POC at IC, shouting from Free Speech Rock: “We desire his resignation, not his input.” She went on to list some goals, including Rochon to resign or be removed from his position, a “radical transformative change in government and structure at Ithaca College” and “we want to bring a sense of safety, emotional stability and dignity to the experiences of POC at IC, other marginalized groups and the intersection between us as well as the entire Ithaca College community.”

What is Mr. Rochon’s offense, you ask?

Answer: He is not a member of the Precrime Police Department from “Minority Report.”

There have been several controversial incidents this semester, including a Blue Sky Reimagining Kick Off event in October that was meant to “formulate ideas about the evolution of Ithaca College.” During the event, an alumna on the panel, Tatiana Sy, a woman of color, said she had a “savage hunger” to succeed. However, two other alumni on the panel then referred to Sy as a “savage” throughout the event. Future Blue Sky Reimagining events have been put on hold.

After the Blue Sky event, Rochon issued a statement that he had apologized to Sy and regrets that the event was diminished by “insensitive comments.” He went on to say, “In general, the college cannot prevent the use of hurtful language on campus. Such language, intentional or unintentional, exists in the world and will seep into our community. We can’t promise that the college will never host a speaker who could say something racist, homophobic, misogynistic, or otherwise disrespectful.

Behold, the fragile mind of modern youth — so delicate and brittle that it crumbles with every episodic instance of unwelcome rhetoric. It’s not hard to guess who would be the first to fold in a mainland invasion of America by its future enemies. But I digress.

Tom Rochon Ithaca protest

This is only the beginning. The roller coaster of weird is just pulling out of the gate.

As I said Nov. 9:

The anti-free speech “muscle” of Mizzou had a big win on Monday, which means that its allies on campuses across the country will now seek to duplicate or surpass their ideological peers. I implore any young person attending college to push back twice as hard the next time your wannabe police-state overseers request “muscle” to do their dirty work.

Buckle up, because this roller coaster looks like it will have plenty of twists and turns. And, as always, welcome to the Twilight Zone.

Mizzou president stepped down for ‘poo-swastika’ that no one can prove existed

Wolfe UM

University of Missouri system president Timothy Wolfe resigned on Monday after demands by football players and activists with Concerned Student 1950. It was claimed he didn’t do enough to address racism and bigotry and campus. One of the pieces of evidence in the circumstantial case against him was, bizarrely, a piece of human waste — smeared into a swastika. The only problem: No one can provide evidence it ever existed.

In the age where everyone has a cellphone, Twitter feed, Facebook account, Instagram and Tumblr page, not a single photo of the diarrhea-swastika left in a UM campus dormitory exists. Is there a group of college kids on earth that would allow such an event to escape without photographic evidence? Answer: No.

The Federalist didn’t think so, which is why it began to investigate the alleged Oct. 24 incident.

[Billy Donley, the president of Mizzou’s Residence Halls Association] noted that he only found out about the alleged vandalism incident “via a flyer posted on the walls” of the dorm.

Although Donley did not respond to repeated requests for comment prior to publication, The Federalist spoke with two RHA staffers while trying to get in touch with Donley. Neither had personally witnessed the poop swastika. When asked if there was any photographic evidence of the alleged incident, one staffer replied, “Not to my knowledge.”

Frankie Minor, the director of residential life at Mizzou, did not respond to repeated requests for comment on whether he personally saw the poop swastika or any photographic evidence of it.

The Federalist also attempted to contact Christian Basi, the associate director of the University of Missouri News Bureau, who previously told the Columbia Missourian on Oct. 30 that the incident had been immediately reported to Mizzou police. Basi did not respond to requests for comment prior to the publication of this article.

Calls to the University of Missouri Police Department, which responded to and investigated the alleged poop swastika incident, also failed to yield any evidence of the poopstika.

Here’s where it gets more interesting. The Federalist found online activists using an image as “proof” the incident occurred, but the photo has been floating around Reddit since November 2014. Perhaps racists and bigots have time machines…

The Federalist contacted Concerned Student 1950 for evidence and got nothing. Reporter Sean Davis was left with no other option but to use public records laws to file a request for all reports linked to the poop-swastika.

Now does it become clear why the student activists used “muscle” to force reporters out of their “safe space”? Lies, distortions, exaggerations and hoaxes are in danger of being exposed when questions are allowed to be asked.

And speaking of lies, did you hear the one about Mizzou’s student body president, Payton Head, riling up the entire campus with an imaginary KKK sighting — only to have to apologize hours later? Whoops.

“I’m sorry about the misinformation that I have shared through social media. In a state of alarm, I was concerned for all students of the University of Missouri and wanted to ensure that everyone was safe. I received and shared information from multiple incorrect sources, which I deeply regret,” Head wrote on his Facebook page Tuesday.

Payton Head

Imaginary KKK sightings. A refusal to share evidence of poo-swastikas. Both get national attention, which undoubtedly translates into random idiots who make threats. So then the movement is totally justified, right? Wrong.

Perhaps if we wait a few weeks, then we’ll hear how dead puppies were used to spell out racial epithets in Mizzou’s quad. Just don’t expect activists to take pictures and share them on social media. You’ll just have to take their word for it.

Melissa Click calls for Mizzou ‘muscle’ to crush reporters’ rights; future tyrants demand ‘safe space’

Melissa Click Muscle

Timothy Wolfe, the president of the University of Missouri system, gave into demands of student protesters on Monday and resigned. The decision was in response to charges he was not doing enough to respond to racial injustices on the campus in recent months. Lost in the shuffle, however, is the story within the story — the harbinger of an America where women like communications professor Melissa Click have their hands on the levers of power.

Media converged on the school in the wake of Wolfe’s decision, and students and faculty who demanded media attention earlier in the day suddenly wanted total control over journalists — in a public space, no less — with “muscle.”

YouTube video uploaded Monday shows future tyrants shoving student photographer Tim Tai out of a “safe space” (Yes, they really demanded a “safe space” in a public forum). They then called for thuggery on student photographer Mark Schierbecker.

Click: You need to get out! You need to get you!

Schierbecker: No I don’t.

Click: **grabbing camera** You need to get out!

Schierbecker: I actually don’t.

Click: Alright. Hey, who wants to help me get this reporter out of here?! I need some muscle over here!

Even Jake Tapper was taken aback, tweeting: “@melissaclick was that you on the video calling for ‘some muscle’ to remove a student journalist from a public space?

Jake Tapper Melissa Click

Yes it was, Mr. Tapper. Yes it was.

Melissa Click

There is a certain urge to sit back and revel in the fact that liberal administrators are now under an attack — from the left — by the foot soldiers they have trained for years. It is no laughing matter, however.

Here is what I said Oct. 24 when Williams College abruptly pulled the plug on an author’s speech because its organizers thought students would resort to physical violence when their “safe space” was threatened:

The kids at Williams College are being taught a dangerous lesson if threats of violence against unpopular speech are rewarded. Intolerant students are likely to mutate into intolerant political leaders down the line. One doesn’t need a college degree to know that intolerant political leaders easily mutate into totalitarian thugs.

It wasn’t all that long ago that Piers Morgan had a show on CNN. He used to laugh and say things along the lines of, “Do you really think Americans will one day be threatened by a tyrannical government?”

It takes willful ignorance to look at the “safe space” culture permeating the nation and not see how the seeds of tyranny are being sown far and wide. We do not need to ask “if” the seeds take root, but “to what extent.”

Anti-free speech “muscle” on college campuses today will be running for public office tomorrow. Many of these students will become entrenched in executive agencies. They will reach the highest echelons of influence within the entertainment industry and hold positions of power at major news organizations.

Ask yourself: If they ask for football team “muscle” to prevent journalists from doing their job at the college level, what will they do when they have the full force of the U.S. government at their disposal?

University of Missouri staff anti free speech

The anti-free speech “muscle” of Mizzou had a big win on Monday, which means that its allies on campuses across the country will now seek to duplicate or surpass their ideological peers.

Williams College ironically cancels ‘uncomfortable’ speaker for ‘Uncomfortable Learning’ series

Venker

If you want to weep for the future of America, then simply look to Williamstown, Massachusetts. Students and infantile officials at Williams College ironically cancelled an “Uncomfortable Learning” series event featuring author Suzanne Venker. The reason: They feared it would make students too uncomfortable.

The whole pathetic display was first reported by Inside Higher Ed Oct. 20.

Williams College students invited Suzanne Venker, a writer and longtime critic of feminism, to speak Tuesday night, but changed their minds and took back the invite for her talk, “One Step Forward, Ten Steps Back: Why Feminism Fails.”

Venker had been invited to participate in a student-run, alumni-funded speaking series at Williams called “Uncomfortable Learning.” The program’s purpose is to expose students to controversial voices and opinions they might not otherwise hear. Many of the speakers tend to be conservative or people whose views don’t square with those of most students. …

The concern, [series co-president Zach Wood] explained, was that “people would get riled up while she was speaking,” maybe even throw things, and there wasn’t time before the event to organize security. “You never know,” he said. “We’re just trying to think ahead here. The last thing we wanted to do was do something destructive.”

Coddled college students are like the psycho kids you knew growing up, the ones who threw violent tantrums when others didn’t want to play games according to their rules. The only difference is that now the weird kids are big enough to hurt others.

I have always been extremely thankful for the opportunity to experience what it is like to be a young conservative on an overwhelmingly-liberal campus. Every day students and teachers took great glee trying to make guys like me uncomfortable. My opinions were consistently challenged. I would be a rich man if I had a dime for every rhetorical cheap shot.

The real world is an uncomfortable place. People disagree with you. People don’t like you. People say mean things just to be mean. In fact, some people will hate you — for traits you consider completely innocuous. It is much better to be forced through a social and intellectual gauntlet in college than to be given “safe spaces” and political pacifiers.

The kids at Williams College are being taught a dangerous lesson if threats of violence against unpopular speech are rewarded. Intolerant students are likely to mutate into intolerant political leaders down the line. One doesn’t need a college degree to know that intolerant political leaders easily mutate into totalitarian thugs.

Venker wrote about her experience in a piece for Fox News Oct. 20.

“I had planned to talk about feminism, but from a different perspective than the one students are used to hearing. I was going to tell them why feminism fails. (Hint: because it denies the existence of biology and teaches that equality means sameness, which is a losing proposition when it comes to planning a life—particularly if that life includes marriage and family.) … Naturally, all my preparation went down the drain.”

Zach Wood appeared to understand — far too late — just how pitiful it was to pull Venker’s invitation. He told Reason Magazine on Friday the author was re-invited to speak sometime next spring. Why would an author come back to a school so terrified by a bunch of petulant children that it yanked her speaking engagement at the last minute?

“I can’t muster writing another speech anytime soon. As I say, it’s no small thing and I’m already behind on a book I’m writing,” Venker told Reason.

Williams College wasted an author’s valuable time. Unbeknownst to many of students, attendance at a college that shields them from “uncomfortable” encounters is also a waste — measured in years instead of hours.

Tuition at Williams College: $50,000. Setting self-righteous college kids up for a rude awakening years down the road: Priceless.

Boston University defends Saida Grundy, professor who says white people are ‘problem population’

Saida Grundy Boston UniversityTuition these days at Boston University is $47,000  a year. If that sounds steep, then consider this: Who wouldn’t want to take classes with assistant professor of sociology and African-American studies Saida Grundy, who says white people are a “problem population”? For a mere $47,000, you too can learn to define yourself by the color of your skin while adopting a weird sense of self-loathing that will stick with you the rest of your life.

Saida Grundy TwitterThanks to some amazing legwork by college student Nick Pappas over at Socawlege.com, the world now gets to see who dispenses “higher education” these days at universities across the country. Fox News dug in a little deeper into Ms. Grundy’s account — before she locked it — and found out that not only are white males a “problem population,” but so is white masculinity. (Sorry Navy SEALs and Army Rangers — you’ve got to go.)

She tweeted: “White masculinity isn’t a problem for America’s colleges, white masculinity is THE problem for America’s colleges.”

She’s so angry about these “problems” that once a year she goes out of her way to try and refrain from purchasing goods and services from white-owned companies.

Said Grundy Boston College MLK weekAnd when she’s not lamenting on those “problem” white people, she’s trying to convince her students that looting by black people is no different than Wall Street trading. Got it? If not, then there’s a good chance you have been corrupted by “problem” white people (i.e., men who use logic and reason) like yours truly.

Said Grundy Boston CollegeFox News reached out to Boston University, which stands by its professor’s racist Twitter stream:

“Professor Grundy is exercising her right to free speech and we respect her right to do so,” Boston University spokesman Colin Riley said.

Grundy did not respond to a request for comment from FoxNews.com, and has made her twitter account private.

Just think: for roughly $200K, you too can get a African-American studies degree from Boston University. When you walk into your first job interview, you can possibly berate a white man sitting across the table and tell him how much of “problem” he is for the rest of the country. You can pitch your top marketable skill — steering black people away from his business one week each March. When he doesn’t hire you, then it will be counted as proof that Ms. Grundy was right all along. You can go back for a Masters degree in African-American studies and possibly end up being a teacher’s assistant at Boston University.

Ask yourself (or Boston University spokesman Colin Riley) this question: If a Boston University professor said that black men were a “problem population” and then admitted that he went out of his way once a year to try and avoid black-owned businesses, how long would that individual be employed?

Years ago I had a job that allowed me to do quite a bit of traveling to colleges across the country. It was self-evident that professors like Ms. Grundy are the norm in certain departments. They might not say transparently vile things into their Twitter feed, but the same general worldview is pumped into the minds of impressionable young students.

Why would any sane white student on a tight budget — who is taking out tens-of-thousands of dollars in student loans — ever register for Ms. Grundy’s class? There are some left-wing professors who are fair, but there are others who expect students to parrot everything they say in order to receive high marks. With scholarships and big money on the line, it would make little sense to voluntarily enter a classroom where your mere existence constitutes a “problem.”

If I attended Boston University, then I would not be donating to it in my golden years. My guess is that if you do a little investigating into your own alma mater, then you’ll soon see rhetoric that will make you think twice about opening up your wallet when the requests for cash come rolling in.

These days, the only thing many colleges are good for is a degree in double-standards or hypocrisy. Sad.
