Academicians Love A Terrorist

Monday, October 27th, 2008

It’s bad enough that unrepentant terrorist Bill Ayers bombed the Pentagon and U.S. Capitol, that he launched Barack Obama’s political career, and that the media have completely ignored and covered up these connections. However, this list of 3880 (as of our publication date) professors, grad students, and teachers who have signed a petition “supporting Professor [...]

Thurgood Marshall College — Garbage U.

Tuesday, March 25th, 2008

(Hat tip: powerline) Writing at the “Minding the Campus” blog, Edgar B. Anderson has an incredible interview with a student at Thurgood Marshall College (UCSD), University Of The Absurd.

Sharia Creep in the USA

Thursday, March 6th, 2008

*** Scroll for Updates *** How will the Muslims take over the West? A couple of strategies (besides outright jihad) come to mind: For one, there’s the Demographic Timebomb that is already exploding in Europe. For the details on this strategy, see Mark Steyn’s wonderful tome, “America Alone: The End Of The World As We [...]

USC Ebonics Scholarship

Wednesday, November 28th, 2007

We recently wrote on the abject stupidity of schools of Social Work infesting academia. Well, Mike Adams is on the hunt with this hilarious series of letters to the USC School of Social Work. Thanks, Mike. We really needed a good laugh today. To Whom It May Concern (sswadm@usc.edu): I was searching for scholarships at [...]

University of Delaware’s Ministry of Love

Wednesday, October 31st, 2007

Scroll for Updates *** The descent of American Universities into cesspools of politically-correct leftist and Marxist indoctrination accelerates unabated. We recently wrote of the brainwashing occurring at schools of social work, but the University of Delaware has managed to top that with a “reeducation program” that is downright Orwellian. FIRE has the story you won’t [...]

“Social Work” Brainwashing 101

Sunday, October 14th, 2007

The goons in ivory towers continue their transformation of publicly-funded American universities into factories of leftist indoctrination. Schools of “social work” are particularly adept at forcing an “idealogical orthodoxy” on unwitting students — an orthodoxy that reads like a handbook on neo-communist leftism and Marxism. Check out George Will’s column, Indoctrination in the Ivory Tower [...]

The Comfort of Bollinger’s Illusions

Friday, September 28th, 2007

Sam Schulman, writing at The American, has a thoughtful piece on the Columbia University controversy titled Lee Bollinger’s Illusory Idealism. Schulman makes a point we haven’t seen before: Bollinger’s “verbal slap” of Ahmadinejad was only made possible because Bollinger had the US military standing behind him. Read on. Many critics have (correctly) pointed to Bollinger’s [...]

Pure Evil in our Midst

Tuesday, September 25th, 2007

Here is a photo Irish Infidel took of one of the Islamist counter-protestors outside of Columbia. His sign reads “May Allah make a mushroom cloud over Israel.” Here’s one of Ahmadinejad’s supporters outside of Columbia University yesterday. Note that he is a former Jew now calling for the destruction of Israel by nuclear weapons. Read [...]

Columbia’s Everlasting Shame

Monday, September 24th, 2007

For more on this practice, check here and here. “The freest women in the world are women in Iran.” — Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, National Press Club speech, 24 September 2007 Columbia University has provided Ahmadinejad a platform for his [...]

Kooks in Ivory Towers

Thursday, September 20th, 2007

The always-enlightening historian, Victor Davis Hanson, makes some great points about the increasingly bizarre behavior of college administrators who, for example, invite Iranian terrorist Ahmadinejad to speak while their colleagues refuse to let Larry Summers speak. The arrogant kooks in the ivory towers are out-of-control. From the corner, “Such a Strange Place, Academia” It is [...]

The Academization of Journalism

Friday, August 10th, 2007

If you read only one essay today, make it this one at powerline: “William Katz remembers: Stop the presses! Just kidding.” William Katz discusses the impact of academia on journalism since the sixties due to the influx of college grads. It’s an indictment of the MSM’s disconnect with reality and the blind elites in ivory [...]

Ward of the State University

Fake Indian Ward Churchill in fake “Che” pose. Everything about this disgraced man is fake. *** Scroll for Updates *** Last week we celebrated the overdue yet exciting news that Ward Churchill — falsity fabricator, plagiarizer, and fake Indian — was fired by the University of Colorado. It’s about time. The New York Post has [...]

Criminalizing Schoolroom Horseplay

Monday, July 30th, 2007

Here’s a recipe for disaster: Mix a hefty dose of “zero-tolerance” (i.e., zero thought) government school administrators with an overzealous district attorney. The resulting concoction destroys children and is an aphrodisiac to power-hungry government officials. Read Mark Steyn’s column, “Swat somebody’s butt, and yours belongs to the D.A.,” on the latest example of prosecutors who’ve [...]

Put a book in a toilet, and go to Jail.

Monday, July 30th, 2007

This is a Koran in a toilet. The Koran is a book. If Stanislav Shmulevich is prosecuted for putting a book in a toilet, then there can be no doubt as to this fact: “Political Correctness — hate crime laws — has destroyed the First Amendment protection of free expression.” *** Scroll for Updates. *** [...]

Reading, Writing, Wahhabism

Thursday, July 26th, 2007

Here’s Michelle Malkin on the revelation that Saudi-created teaching materials have taken over the Middle East studies program in America’s stellar, government schools. The curriculum in our government schools is lousy and polluted enough without the stealth infiltration of Saudi propaganda. Time for some oversight and loophole-closing. Anyone in Congress awake? Michelle is referring to [...]

Obama Tech

More information on the event, including photos and videos, is available here. According to the AJC, 20,000 supporters were in attendance.

American Universities are Constitution-Free Zones

Tuesday, May 15th, 2007

The insanity occurring at American universities is staggering! Here are three stories that are just unbelievable. The bottom line is that the Constitution of the United States, along with many of our laws, simply doesn’t apply on the campuses of American universities. In these bastions of liberalism, the Bill of Rights is null and void. [...]

Remembering “Self” in Ivory Tower Land

Wednesday, April 18th, 2007

Liberals — such as these college administrators — are pack animals who long ago abandoned a belief in self. As herd animals, liberals despise the concept of the individual and the responsibility that implies. This is why one never hears liberals espouse classical concepts of individuality such as self-defense or self-control: Liberals do not believe [...]

Gutless Lemmings in Academia

Tuesday, April 17th, 2007

Read Thomas Sowell’s “A Gutless Lynch Mob” on the Duke lynching and the shameful aftermath. It is bad enough to be part of a lynch mob. It is worse to deny that you are part of a lynch mob, while standing there holding the rope in your hands. … This case will send a message, [...]

Indoctrinate U

Scott at powerlineblog.com has published this letter from the documentary filmmaker Evan Coyne Maloney on his new film, “Indoctrinate U”: Scott, With the upcoming release of “Indoctrinate U”–the feature-length documentary on campus political correctness that I’ve been working on for the last 3 years–we obviously had a bit of trouble convincing Hollywood distributors that there [...]
