A College of William and Mary student said that “labeling all members of fraternities as rapists is justified” after vandals spray painted “rapist” on frats at the school in November.
Aditya Mohan made the remark in a column for The Flat Hat, one of the school’s papers. He also argued that the community should “destroy [fraternities].”
“It is all of our responsibilities to stand in solidarity with victims, trans people, poor people, women, people of color and others hurt by fraternities and destroy the structures that harm them,” wrote the student, who added that frats are “a network built to further nepotism and favoritism in employment, politics and civil society.”
Mohan says there are issues with both erasing and keeping the vandalism on the frat building. He says erasing it could censor survivors, but leaving it could trigger those survivors.
Now campus activists say that one in five women are sexually assaulted during their time on campus. But the study cited only accounted for students at two universities, received a low response rate, counted drunken-sex as assault, and didn’t actually ask the students polled outright whether they experienced rape or sexual assault. The Bureau of Justice, meanwhile, reports that fewer than one percent of college students are sexually assaulted.
Students have targeted frats both verbally and physically across the country. A University of Virginia frat had its house vandalized and windows smashed with bricks after Rolling Stone magazine libelously published a story about a gang rape that never in fact occurred there. Antifa marched on frats at the University of Minnesota with a sign stating “kill rapists” and shouted “f*** the frats.” Vandals at the University of Texas at Austin wrote “kill frat boys,” “racist” and “rapist” on frat houses, and Antifa published an open letter ordering people to “make their lives hell.” A few days later, student Kendrex White stabbed four students — killing one — allegedly searching specifically for frat and sorority members.
‘I Am Antifa’ Prof Suing The School, Still Taking Paycheck
Remember Jeff Klinzman? You know, the Iowa professor who responded to a tweet from Donald Trump calling Antifa out for attacking people with baseball bats by saying “yeah, I know who I’d clock with a bat” and who outright told ABC9 “I am Antifa”? He parted ways with the school in late August, but is now planning on suing Kirkland Community College and is still taking a paycheck, reported Campus Reform.
Klinzman had some other pretty disturbing stuff on social media, liking several Antifa-related Facebook pages and quoting a poem reading “kill them all, and bury them deep in the ground, before millions more are tortured to death” when talking about Evangelical Christians who, according to him, “fill [him] with rage, and a desire to exact revenge.”
Now, it’s weird because Kirkland Community College said it made a “decision to remove Mr. Klinzman from the classroom,” citing safety concerns, but then said “We have spoken with Mr. Klinzman this afternoon about this matter and have accepted his resignation.”
And this little incongruity here — how did someone who was removed from the classroom also resign? – is part of the professor’s planned lawsuit against the school. Klinzman said that he believes his First Amendment rights were violated and that the college communicated to him that he could resign or it would fire him. An email from the college showed that Klinzman did, in fact, resign, but he did so on the condition that he still earns his full salary of $3,624 for the 16-week semester.
Puzzle Book Tries To Shame ICE Agents
Chiara Treglia, a student studying out of New York City’s Pratt Institute, created for ICE agents a puzzle book with a cover reading “TRAIN YOUR BRAIN & YOUR MORALS!” according to Campus Reform. There’s one maze where the ICE agents are expected to connect a young boy back to parents from whom he’d been separated. There’s also one of those “spot the difference” pair of pictures. The first one has a kid with her mom and dad on her fifth birthday. Then on her sixth birthday, the dad’s being escorted out the door, presumably for being illegal. Chiara apparently thinks it’s normal for the mom and kid to still be smiling and celebrating while the dad’s hauled off.
The student’s project is part of the Pratt Institute’s Undocumented Design studio, which partners with New York City’s New Sanctuary Coalition, which, in turn, helps illegals who are trying to avoid deportation and detention.
Now, the real question here isn’t “oh are ICE agents going to do these six-year-old activities and be persuaded into thinking they’re actually evil?” I doubt it: if you have that job nowadays, you’re probably immune to media or so-called “scholarly” activist hysteria. But this is part of a trend in campus hostility to the law.
Remember when Border Patrol agents tried to present during a career day at the University of Arizona back in March?
Prof Who Said ‘I Am Antifa’ Gets Kicked Out Of Classroom, Resigns
Jeff Klinzman, a Kirkwood Community College professor — or former professor, I should say — who not only made that BAT comment, but also directly told ABC9 “I am Antifa.”
Secret Service said that it was aware of the bat comment, but didn’t say whether they were investigating. But Klinzman has been a busy bee on social media. When describing his dislike for Evangelical Christians, he quoted part of a poem, which said “kill them all, and bury them deep in the ground, before millions more are tortured to death.” He also said “seeing what Evangelical Christians are doing to this country and its people fills me with rage, and a desire to exact revenge.”
The former professor’s Facebook likes include Antifa Nebraska, Heartland Antifascists, Antifascist USA, and various other left-wing pages, according to Campus Reform, but what’s perhaps most bizarre about this story is how Klinzman and Kirkwood Community College ended their relationship. The school said that it made a “decision to remove Mr. Klinzman from the classroom,” but then said “We have spoken with Mr. Klinzman this afternoon about this matter and have accepted his resignation.”
Klinzman has a 2.5 out of 5 score on his Rate My Professors page, with one user from 2018 stating “Very opinion-based class. You either side with him or he will contradict your views.” One from 2017 said “Whatever you do, don’t interrupt him when he’s telling stories about his glory days of protesting, and how much of a rebel he thinks he still is. He’s mean, he’s a bigot, and he’s sexist as heck. He treats the female students who aren’t hairy pitted feminists like they are garbage.”
Now, it seems like people on the right have different opinions when it comes to left-wing profs. There are reactionaries who say, “hey, the left has no hesitations going after what few conservatives there are in academia — why shouldn’t we do the same?” Then there are libertarian types who say “no one should ever be fired for free speech and we should neversink to the left’s standards!” My stance is that if this bias can be proven to impact what’s being taught to malleable minds, then yeah, something should be done about it.
