Drexel University Professor Bucks Hate Speech

Once upon a time when professors, no matter how homicidal their statements, or writings, or today, their tweets, could always avoid career trouble by hiding behind the tried-and-true protection of claiming their comments were “satirical.” And college administrations, composed of former professors, often closed ranks behind one of their own, particularly if the professor was a leftist, and was expressing politically correct sentiments, no matter how homicidal the content. But bring money into the mix in the form of donors and prospective students, and sometimes such protection only goes so far. Such is the case with Drexel University. Back in December, when George Ciccariello-Maher, an associate professor of history and politics, tweeted “All I Want for Christmas is White Genocide,” the professor claimed that the Drexel administration supported his right to “vigorous public debate.” And such was the impression, as, although the University denounced the tweet as “utterly reprehensible” and “deeply disturbing,” nothing else was done. Maher took the familiar route of claiming the tweet was simply engaging in… Keep Reading

Professor Has Had Enough Of Political Correctness

A Columbia professor is castigating one of the academic left’s most cherished concepts: that of “white privilege,” according to The Atlantic. In a period where professors and minority students wield this term–designed to create guilt for the so-called “privileged,” to shut down debate–Columbia Professor and African-American John McWhorter appeared at the Aspen Ideas Conference on Thursday to deny the common leftist trope that campuses are repositories of racism; indeed, according to him, “college campuses are perhaps the least racist spots on earth.” Thus “the idea that any [minority] student is undergoing a constant litany of constant racist abuse is… not true.” Keep Reading

Libertarian Civil Rights Official Stands Up For Men’s Rights In Universities

Libertarian activist Candice E. Jackson was recently appointed by President Donald Trump as the top civil rights official in the Department of Education. In her role, she is trying to address the oft-taboo issue of men’s rights on college campuses, where feminists and other leftists have worked to create a culture of hysteria against males. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos heard it from all sides throughout the day. She met with assault victims, students who were accused of assault alongside their families, higher education officials, and advocates from both sides of the aisle. While DeVos maintains her objectivity, Jackson is an outspoken advocate for the falsely accused. She says that there is “not even an accusation that these accused students overrode the will of a young woman” in most campus sexual assault claims. “Rather, the accusations — 90 percent of them — fall into the category of ‘we were both drunk,’ ‘we broke up, and six months later I found myself under a Title IX investigation because she just decided… Keep Reading

Even In Texas, Diversity Warriors Hurl Racist Accusations At Conservatives

Even the reliably red-state Texas is being subjected to insane diversity battles at its colleges. A case in point occurred at Texas A&M University, with the focus of the debate concerning a retreat designed to provide a “support system” for incoming freshmen. The location of the retreat, Fish Camp, has since time immemorial been organized “to welcome freshmen into the Aggie family by sharing the traditions and values of Texas A&M University and creating a universally accepting support system that allows them to build relationships and embody the Aggie spirit.” But despite this laudable purpose, Hispanic student Cynthia Mendiola has attacked the Camp for its lack of diversity based on its group photos. In a tweet drenched with sarcasm, Mendiola posted photos of those at the event, and claimed that Fish Camp is “mainly white,” and as such, repels minorities from attending the retreat because of being outnumbered by Caucasians. The victim canard was, yet again, in plat. Keep Reading
