Are you a pro-life student? You might want to prepare to get punched, have your signs destroyed, and your chalk erased.
The first weekend of December marked the latest instance of left-wing intolerance to pro-life student demonstrators. Fifteen-year-old pro-life student Purity Thomas was praying and advising women in front of a Planned Parenthood when she was punched in the face, reported The Daily Caller.
If that’s not shocking enough, the police didn’t arrest this criminal. Now, Thomas knows who punched her but “she was not disclosing the identity of her assailant because the woman had just had an abortion and she wants her to heal instead of receive harassment.”
“I feel super sorry for her and I want her to know that we’re not violent, we actually care about her,” said Thomas. “Being punched was nothing compared to what those babies are feeling when they are aborted…and honestly, I would take a million punches if it saved one child.”
Texas State University student Ian Ramos kicked and punched in pro-life signs on campus. He stated the signs did not constitute free speech, which is a tad surprising for a history and government student. Ramos is pursuing a teaching certification, as of April 2017.
California State University, Fresno professor Gregory Thatcher erased pro-life chalking on campus, even after a student told him she had gotten permission to chalk in the vicinity. Thatcher will participate in First Amendment training and has to pay $17,000 for a court settlement, but Thatcher’s insurance company will be paying the fee and the professor “did not, in any way, admit to any wrongdoing.” Ramos, who destroyed the signs, received no punishment, and is unrepentant, saying he would do it again. Welcome to 21st century universities, where exercising free speech has its consequences, but prevent it, and you’ll be A-OK.
Cornell Studies In Trouble For Ranking Ladies’ Looks?
Male students in Cornell University’s law school allegedly ranked female law students by their appearances and the administration was not pleased, according to The Daily Caller News Foundation.
Cornell Law Dean Eduardo Penalver emailed students, saying: “upon receiving this troubling report, the Dean of Students asked Lawyering faculty as well as small section instructors to discuss these allegations with their students and to communicate to their sections in no uncertain terms that, if they are true, the behavior may well violate University Policy 6.4, which prohibits (among other things) the creation of a hostile educational environment on the basis of sex.”
This is a key instance of the puritanical impulses of the left eroding objective reality. FACT: Men AND women have key factors they seek out in potential mates: intelligence, humor, compassion, etc. FACT: beauty is, whether you like it or not, one of those factors.
Cornell’s starting a Title IX investigation over this and the results COULD be as drastic as Harvard’s decision last year to rescind admission offers for at least ten students who sent allegedly “offensive memes” in a private group.
The Ivy League is seeming less and less big league and more and more just like ordinary poison.
Anti-Terrorism Speaker Uninvited, Then Reinvited To Rutgers
Rutgers University invited Fox News political analyst and anti-Islamic terrorism speaker Lisa Daftari to give a lecture entitled “Radicalism on College Campuses,” rescinded the invitation, and then extended it again, reported Campus Reform.
A petition that called Lisa a “bigot” and “unapologetic Islamophobe” made the rounds online and got more than 1,600 signatures. The petition cited times she said “Islamic terror takes its guidance and teachings from the Quran, which is Sharia law” and “When you go to the mosque and you’re part of a community, and you want to feel important and relevant, and want to give back to the cause — [ISIS] recruits you. You say- I can be an ISIS wife.” The petition said “This statement, equating Muslims everywhere with ISIS, is undoubtedly hate-mongering.”
Ok so maybe Lisa neglected to make the distinction in that particular part of that particular speech. But just a quick Google search reveals that she clearly sees ISIS as only a minority of Islam.
Rutgers initially stood strong against calls to cancel Daftari, saying “if these issues are not brought to the forefront and given a chance to be debated, then they may continue to stay buried,” but the school eventually caved less than a week before Lisa was due to speak this Tuesday, cancelling her talk.
Another petition was started, this time by conservative and libertarian students at Rutgers, defending Lisa’s statements and saying that students at the school called the speaker a “cockroach” and a “bitch.”
And then Rutgers went back on their decision to UNINVITE Lisa, with an administrator sending her a message reading: “I want to write to clear up any confusion regarding your invitation to speak at the University….To the degree that I may have contributed to the confusion, I hope you will accept my apology.”
The school offered her four November dates to speak.
Prof: Dr. Ford ‘Told The Truth,’ Nominates Her For Award
Every year, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill gives out a “Distinguished Alumna and Alumnus Award” to up to five alumni who have “made an outstanding contribution to humanity in any walk of life,” reported Campus Reform.
For the 2019 award, UNC English professor Jennifer Ho wrote a letter recommending Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, who made the unsubstantiated claim that Kavanaugh had sexually assaulted her.
“What Dr. Blasey Ford did on September 27, 2018 was something that was extraordinary in how ordinary it was; she told the truth about a sexual assault she experienced when she was fifteen years old at the hands of Judge Brett Kavanaugh,” the professor wrote.
“She told the truth.” How does Jennifer Ho know this? Was she at that 1982 party? Someone better tell the FBI.
“By awarding Dr. Christine Blasey Ford as a distinguished alumna, UNC Chapel Hill sends a message to her, to our students, faculty, and staff, and to the larger community of the US and the world that we believe her – that UNC Chapel Hill believes survivors of sexual assault.”
Yes, but the problem is, you DON’T know what actually happened. I guess when it comes to Ho, feelings don’t care about her facts. And none of this should be too surprising when you look at Jennifer’s scholarly work, consisting of publications like this complaint about pink being feminine called “No F****** Pink Ribbons! Is It Time For The Bow To Go?,” as well as English courses with titles like “Mixed Race America” and “Critical Race Theory.”
Why spend tens of thousands of dollars on reading and discussing Shakespeare when you can instead mold yourself into a weapon for cultural Marxism, am I right?
