A Dartmouth professor is currently on a nationwide tour in support of his new book and will donate half of the money he gets from book sales to Antifa.
Dartmouth professor Mark Bray’s new book, “Antifa: The Antifascist Handbook,” chronicles the history of the antifascist movement and Bray will contribute half of the books proceeds to a fund for Antifa’s medical, legal, and personal expenses, reported Campus Reform.
In a tweet, the Dartmouth professor stated, “to me, physically stopping a neo-Nazi group before they come to you is self-defense, b/c neo-Nazism is a threat to humanity.”
But it’s not self-defense if you strike first and who is a Nazi? With psychology professor Dr. Jordan B. Peterson and Jewish author Ben Shapiro getting branded as Nazis and Antifa protesting them, you’d think Bray would want to define his terms, as well as give the antifascists even a little bit of scrutiny, particularly when the Department of Homeland Security labeled Antifa’s activities “domestic terrorist violence.”
Bray isn’t the only Antifa supporter in the ivy towers. There’s Eric Clanton, the former Diablo Valley College professor who bust a bike lock on a Trump supporter’s head. There’s also George Ciccariello-Maher, the Drexel University professor who said all he wanted for Christmas was a “white genocide” and who blamed the Las Vegas and Texas massacres on white “Trumpism.”
In a statement, Dartmouth president Philip Hanlon said, “we condemn anything but civil discourse in the exchange of opinions and ideas…the endorsement of violence in any form is contrary to Dartmouth values.” Yet more than 100 of Bray’s colleagues in academia want Hanlon to retract the statement, saying Bray didn’t call for violent protest. Conversely in the same statement those same colleagues ceded that Bray called for self-defense against violent fascists…except Bray never said the so-called fascists had to strike first.
Prof Triggered By ‘Straight Pride’ Flag
Chipman, New Brunswick apparently flew a gay pride flag with no controversy for a week during June this year, but when the STRAIGHT pride flag went up, well, that was a different story, according to Global News. Chipman’s mayor, Carson Atkinson, gave a pretty boilerplate reason as to why he approved the flag, stating that it “recognizes, accepts and respects the rights of individuals under the Charter of Rights and Freedoms.” But University of New Brunswick professor Matthew Sears sent a letter to the village council, saying:
“This flag is not simply an ‘alternative’ to the Pride flag, nor is it merely ‘another point of view.’ Rather, it is a deliberate move to mock and marginalize a community that has been mocked and marginalized for far too long.”
Wow, so I knew Matthew taught classics and ancient history at UNB, but little did I know he’s also adept at mind-reading. No but really: how does he know the motive of whomever wanted to fly this flag? If you think it’s a troll, the best thing you can do is ignore it because trolls thrive off of this kind of attention. I would know. But this isn’t the first silly remark Matthew has made.
He has also compared Rebel swag and a Make America Great Again Hat to a Ku Klux Klan hood or Nazi banner, tweeted approvingly after U.S. Press Secretary Sarah Sanders got kicked out of a restaurant, and pushed the “listen and believe” mindset during the Brett Kavanaugh sexual assault scandal.
Prof Banned After Planning Anti-Kavanaugh Trip
Former University of Southern Maine economics and women’s and gender studies professor Susan Feiner apparently hit up her buddy Gabriel Demaine, a diversity and inclusive programming coordinator at USM to propose a one-credit course for students. I got forwarded an email from Demaine which read:
“Students can earn 1 credit FREE for enrolling in this Pop-Up course on ‘Engaged Citizenship.’ The requirements of the pop-up include: busing overnight to Washington, D.C. to join activists, political action groups, and social justice organizations to meet with Sen. [Susan] Collins,” as reported in Campus Reform.
I don’t know about you, but if I lived in Maine, I’m not sure how comfortable I’d be with my tax dollars funding such naked activism. Anyway, Susan Feiner was also going to send students a survey which said “check all that apply,” followed by statements like “I am a survivor and willing to share my story to the public (Livestream, rally, press)” and “I am interested in civil disobedience/willing to get arrested (Bail is about $50/arrest. Please have a plan).”
Susan went to D.C. earlier in October, but her little “course,” planned for the same day, was never approved by the university because USM President Glenn Cummings stepped in and said “This pop-up-course was hastily arranged, without the knowledge of the Provost or myself. It was not appropriately reviewed nor went through proper channels. As soon as the Provost and I were apprised of the course, we immediately pulled the one-credit offering. We also made sure that no USM monies were being used for the trip.”
I, for once, don’t have any snarky remark to make because this is exactly what they should have done. Once they retire, professors often still teach a few courses but Susan Feiner, who actually retired three months ago, won’t be, at least at any University of Maine campus, because Cummings has barred her from doing so.
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.
