Dartmouth Disavows But Keeps Prof Who Justifies Violence

Published

on

 

 

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.

Ex-Diversity Academic FINED For Giving Husband Fellowship

Published

on

Up until recently, Charmane Thurmand worked as a graduate diversity officer at the University of Connecticut. As part of her job, Charmane helped distribute diversity fellowships. Now, in a normal world, the crazy part of this story would be that schools are giving out money based on people’s race, gender, etc. But this is clown world and so the really maddening part of Charmane’s tale is that she got a fellowship for her husband despite her husband not having the requisite degree to get the fellowship or having even applied for it, according to Campus Reform.

That’s not all. Charmane also tried to get her husband a graduate assistant position but not have him do any work. In total, Charmane secured her husband over $50,000 in graduate assistant salary, tuition waivers, and more from the University of Connecticut, all without the school’s permission. Charmane resigned before the school could punish her and moved to California. Of course she moved to California. But while she could run, she couldn’t hide, at least not from the law.

Connecticut’s State Ethics Office fined her $20,000 for violating an ethics code, with the Ethics Advisory Board chair saying “In light of the repeated, intentional nature of Ms. Thurmand’s conduct, for which she showed no regret, the Board determined that the maximum penalty was warranted.”

But Charmane isn’t going down without a fight. True to the social justicey nature of her former job, she has sued the University of Connecticut, claiming the school was wrong about the theft and pursued a “biased, racially [motivated,] and retaliatory investigation of the charges.” Because like we’ve seen countless times before and like we almost saw with Jussie Smollett, the race card is the get out of jail free card in modernity’s twisted game of Monopoly.

Prof Bashes Into Men For ‘Patriarchy Chicken’ Game

Published

on

Charlotte Riley, a history professor at the University of Southampton, wrote a column in which she discussed a game she played on the train one morning called “Patriarchy Chicken.”

There’s only one rule, apparently, which is not moving aside for men. Charlotte says “if you don’t move out of the way for men, your commute changes. For one thing – I’m not going to lie about this – you do collide with a lot of men. This is where the name of the game comes from. You need to really commit to Patriarchy Chicken: don’t let your social instinct to step to the side kick in. Men are going to walk into you: that isn’t your fault.”

That’s right. You don’t need to be on the right side of the walkway, or I guess the left side since this is Britain, no, you should be able to walk on whichever side, go backwards, zig-zag, you name it. The only license you need is your XX chromosomes.

Charlotte continues, saying that the point of the game “is that men have been socialised, for their entire lives, to take up space. Men who would never express these thoughts out loud have nevertheless been brought up to believe that their right to occupy space takes precedent over anyone else’s right to be there. They spread their legs on tubes and trains, they bellow across coffee shops and guffaw in pubs, and they never, ever give way.”

You know who else liked taking up space? Well, if you pull out your old high school history vocab list, you might come across a little word called “lebensraum,” the need to capture space for the people in Nazi Germany to inhabit. This is why it’s OK to, you know, take action against both men and Nazis — many of whom, remember, were men! #YesAllMen

Student Gov BEGS Students To Protest

Published

on

The student government at Concord University recently sent an email to students with the subject line, in all caps, reading “EMERGENCY. GUNS ON CAMPUS,” urging students to go to Charleston, West Virginia for a protest against a campus carry bill, according to Campus Reform. The email said “please, please, please be there. We need you.”

Talk about desperate. And that subject line isn’t fear-mongering at all: “EMERGENCY. GUNS ON CAMPUS.” Please. Get. Upset. So One marketing professor told her students she would not be taking roll on the day of the protest, urging students to go, and another news release, sent to students through a university admin email, said that “Concord University students are joining college and university students from across the state for a rally against House Bill 2519, The Campus Self Defense Act.”

Now keep that word “against” in mind when you hear Concord University’s response to one of my student reporters over at Campus Reform. The school said that the student government “organized a trip to Charleston to speak to lawmakers in the hopes that their voice would be considered in the decision-making process….All students were invited, regardless of where they stood on this issue.”

Riiiiight. So anyone could come…to the rally explicitly against the campus carry bill. How about I go cheer on the Washington Redskins in the Dallas Cowboy section of the stadium. I’m sure that will turn out just lovely. And you only need to open Facebook dot com to see the school’s real opinion of the bill.

Concord University President Kendra Boggess made a comment there saying I cannot understand it…party politics, the gun lobbies controlling the conversation…it’s absolutely beyond my ability to comprehend. We have argued, we have pleaded, we have lobbied….I’ll be glad to try anything to keep guns off our campuses, but we haven’t been successful so far.”

That West Virginia student government, which presumably gets fees from Concord University students, funded transportation to that rally.
