William & Mary Student Fans Flames, Justifies Labeling All Members of Fraternities as ‘Rapists’

Published

on

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.

School Spends $393,000 Defending Statue From Protesters

Published

The University of North Carolina spent a total of $393,000 paying police to defend the Silent Sam statue and repairing it, reported The Daily Caller News Foundation.

UNC history PhD student Maya Little apparently mixed red ink with her own blood to protest this Confederate statue.

And it wasn’t just the students, either. Seventeen anonymous University of North Carolina professors wrote the school an ultimatum, saying they would tear the statue down themselves if it wasn’t removed by a certain date.

“We do not fear arrest,” said the brave…anonymous professors. “Indeed we welcome the opportunity to demonstrate the commitment that the Carolina faculty has to the wellbeing of its students and the principles that make this university great.”

Yeah, you know, principles like cultural Marxism, mob rule, might makes right. Now, the professors wrote that letter to UNC Chancellor Carol Folt, who finds herself in a bit of a pickle. You see, she would love to tear down the Silent Sam statue but believes a certain North Carolina law forbids her from doing so without legislative consent. UNC police said last August that they thought the Confederate statue’s fate would resemble that of the one in Durham, North Carolina.

And, of course, all felony charges were dropped against those Durham “activists.”

Harvard Official Apologizes After Affordable Housing Insult

Published

on

Theresa Lund, executive director of Harvard University’s Humanitarian Institute complained because her children were trying to sleep and the daughter of Alyson Laliberte, a neighboring mother, was apparently making too much noise, reported The Daily Caller News Foundation.

Lund asked whether Laliberte lived in Harvard housing, or an “affordable apartment.”

As long as it’s a public area, there’s really nothing Theresa can do. I think the layout here is probably Harvard housing off to one side, affordable apartments off to another with a common space in between that residents from both areas can use. And to be honest, Theresa, a couple dozen yards isn’t going to make much of a difference.

So after getting called racist by Alyson, the Harvard employee apologized Monday, saying her response was “inappropriate and wrong” and that “This clearly wasn’t my best moment, and I have work to do to more consistently be my best self.”

So if Alyson DID actually live in the cheaper housing, this seems like a case of coastal elites who virtue signal about how much they love the less fortunate to get their votes, but when it comes time to actually live with them? I mean, can you imagine if we actually took in all of those refugees and put a few of them in Theresa’s neighborhood? Something tells me she wouldn’t be too pleased.

But let’s take a step back and look at the bigger picture, which is: what the heck is going on with Harvard? Now, if you join a frat or sorority at the school, you will be prohibited from applying for prestigious scholarships and holding leadership positions on campus. The school also requires faculty and students to take an online sexual harassment module because, you know, teaching people how not to rape or make sexist jokes totally works. Looming over all of this, of course, is the possibility that Harvard is discriminating against Asian American applicants. Stay tuned when that lawsuit hits the court in October.

Trinity Western University

Christian College Loses At Supreme Court

Published

on

You might remember the case of Trinity Western University, a college that wanted to set up a law school, only to be told that its law graduates would not be accredited in certain provincial law societies. Why? Well, because these graduates dared to attend a school that banned its students from having sex outside of heterosexual marriage.

Now, courts in British Columbia and Nova Scotia sided with Trinity Western, saying it would violate students’ religious freedom to deny them licenses to practice law on this basis. But Ontario’s highest court sided with the law societies and the case went to the Supreme Court, which decided in a 7-2 vote that the law societies were correct, according to The Daily Caller News Foundation. The court’s majority opinion said:

“Limiting access to membership in the legal profession on the basis of personal characteristics, unrelated to merit, is inherently inimical to the integrity of the legal profession.”

But here’s the thing: the Supreme Court is ALSO limiting access to the legal profession by letting law societies deny licenses to students not based on how well they did in law school, but simply because they voluntarily attended a school that wanted them to have a traditionally Christian sex life.
