Pro-Life On Campus? Prepare To Get Punched, Have Signs Kicked In, Chalk Erased

Published

on

 

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.

‘I Am Antifa’ Prof Suing The School, Still Taking Paycheck

Published

on

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

Published

on

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

Published

on

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.
