Legotopia

Wednesday, March 7th, 2007

Legos — Building blocks for social inequality or tools of collectivist indoctrination? Neal Boortz is talking about an experiment in Socialism at Seattle’s Hilltop Children’s Center that involved a “Legotown” built by the students. The teachers responsible for this experiment have published their “findings” in this article, “Why We Banned Legos”. This article is remarkable. [...]

Attack of the 6 foot vagina

Friday, February 23rd, 2007

ASU’s vagina sneaks up on next victim. File this story under “too crazy to be fiction.” Leave it to UNC professor (and fellow gun-nut) Mike Adams to alert us to the “six-foot vagina costume” roaming the campus of Appalachian State University. We’re just relieved that freedom of expression is alive (if not so “well”) on [...]

Mindless Zero-Tolerance at UGA

Thursday, February 22nd, 2007

Here’s a ridiculous, local story from the People’s Republic of Athens, Georgia: “Pellet gun lands UGA senior in jail on two felony charges” A University of Georgia student was arrested on weapons charges early Saturday after a UGA officer patrolling a campus parking lot spotted a recreational pellet gun in the student’s car, UGA police [...]

Petri Dishes of Censorship

Thursday, February 1st, 2007

(Hat tip: HR) Don’t miss John Leo’s piece, “Free Inquiry? Not on Campus.” Remember when the Right had a near-monopoly on censorship? If so, you must be in your sixties, or older. Now the champions of censorship are mostly on the left. And they are thickest on the ground in our colleges and universities. Since [...]

Male while White: Guilty!

Wednesday, January 17th, 2007

In a nutshell, this is how the modern lynching machine functions: Between a perverse form of liberation feminism that sanctifies strippers, prostitutes and porn stars — and a dogma of victimology that places blame for all things at the feet of the white patriarchy — the players were instantaneously presumed guilty by virtue of their [...]

You can’t Censor Away Incompetence

Tuesday, November 28th, 2006

(Hat tip: Our friend, George P. Burdell) Here’s a story that is fooling exactly…no one. The St. Petersburg Times is reporting that the principal of Hillsborough High School censored an article in the student paper in order to protect his poor, delicate students’ self-esteem. There’s only one problem: the principal is full of bullshit and [...]

Update on university Mobocracies

Tuesday, November 21st, 2006

Here’s a rundown on the latest nonsense infesting post-modern, leftist, American universities. The anarchists and Marxist kids and profs at these re-education centers are hell-bent on destroying the First Amendment protections of free speech and expression, and they are succeeding on their commune-campuses. Michelle Malkin has an update from the recent riot at Columbia University [...]

More Stupidia Academia

Wednesday, October 18th, 2006

The ruckus at Columbia University has provided endless fodder for criticizing and rebuking the stupidity of modern, leftists American universities. We’ve further documented this here and here. Here’s a summary of the last few days. First, read “Minutemen or the Mullahman” by Mary Katharine Ham. Last week, the Columbia University College Republicans invited Minuteman Project [...]

Smug Rich Kids

Friday, October 13th, 2006

Matt Mireles, a junior at Columbia University, has this article in today’s New York Post, “Smug Rich Kids — White Guilt vs. Free Speech”. It’s worth a read and funny as well. COLUMBIA University is a place for rich kids – rich kids who agree with each other. Sure, some come from well-to-do Hispanic families [...]

Scandal at Columbia University

Thursday, October 12th, 2006

*** Scroll Down for Updates *** This is ridiculous: At the last minute, Columbia University rescinded the invitations of numerous people (75 – 120 estimated) who were, in many cases, in transit to hear Walid Shoebat speak. What gratuitous cowardice and rudeness the Columbia administration has engaged in so as to cover their weak-ass, non-response [...]

No Concept of Free Speech

Wednesday, October 11th, 2006

A lot of attention has been given to last week’s incident of “Mob rule at Columbia University”, in which “activists” stormed the stage during a speech by the co-founder of the Minutemen Project, Jim Gilchrist. Powerline covered the event here, and the NYSun has coverage here, including this, The pandemonium that ensued as the evening’s [...]

When Harry Met Laura

Wednesday, October 4th, 2006

Laura Mallory, of Loganville, Ga., holds up a brochure for a summer camp for learning the art of witchcraft. (AP Photo/John Amis) Busybody Laura Mallory is nothing if not hard-headed and determined, but most fanatics are. We initially wrote about this woman here and concluded: Laura Mallory is an intolerant, religious fanatic for this reason: [...]

Harry Potter at risk in Georgia Schools

Thursday, April 20th, 2006

Today’s Atlanta Journal Constitution has this story, Hearing to vanish Potter set for today, on a hearing today in the Gwinnet County government school system to debate censoring the Harry Potter novels from the school system’s libraries. From the article: A Gwinnett County school board hearing on whether to remove the Harry Potter series from [...]

Princeton University — leftist “sensitivity” in action

Tuesday, December 6th, 2005

Want to speak at an American University? If so, Debbie Schlussel has some facts that you should consider. For example, are you a terrorist or supporter of known terrorist organizations? Good. Your next step is to pick a five figure speaking fee. However, if you’re a reformed terrorist who denounces terrorism and promotes peace, well, [...]

Wednesday, November 30th, 2005

We’ve written extensively in this blog on the insanity going on in American colleges and universities, and today we introduce a new category for this genre: stupidia academia. Check in frequently for humorous and depressing stories from the leftist utopia of “academia”. For example, in the last few days, we’ve followed the story of a [...]
