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.

Prof Bans Students From Using ‘Illegal Immigrant’

Published

on

An Ohio professor told one of his students that while they may use the term “illegal immigration,” he will not accept assignments with the term “illegal immigrant,” reported The Daily Caller.

If you take an Ohio State University sociology class, you might be lucky enough to get Victor Espinosa as your professor for “Sociology of Immigration.”

The professor asked his students to write an article about how immigration affects the United States and one of his students, Hannah Emerson, dared to use the term “illegal immigrant” in her submission.

Victor wrote a message to Emerson, saying “You should know that in this class, students will not be allowed to use the word ‘illegal’ to refer to an unauthorized immigrant. The use of the term ‘illegal’ by politicians and news media outlets…not only criminalizes undocumented workers, but it also dehumanizes, marginalizes, and racializes the people it seeks to describe.”

Professor Espinosa seems to be one of those guys who thinks life imitates art, not the other way around. Someone doesn’t become an illegal immigrant by our calling them that. We call them that because they’re illegally in the country. As for the racialize, marginalize, dehumanize drivel…yes, some races are more likely to illegally immigrate to America, yes, people who break the law deserve to be marginalized, but no, calling some “illegal” doesn’t make them any less human.

Victor told Hannah that “starting next week, any assignment or discussion post that uses the word ‘illegal immigrant’ to refer to an unauthorized immigrant will not be accepted.” But here’s the really funny part: the professor noted that while students couldn’t use “illegal immigrant,” they could say “illegal immigration.” I’m sure the reasoning behind that is something really compelling like “humans can’t be illegal!”

Harvard Prof: Trump Is A ‘National Emergency’

Published

on

Harvard law professor Lawrence Lessig argued that the national emergency isn’t the U.S.-Mexico border. Trump said he may call it that if he doesn’t get the wall. No, according to Lessig, the real national emergency is President Trump, reported Raw Story.

Now to his credit, Lawrence calls himself a constitutionalist and he did serve as a clerk for conservative Judge Richard Posner and the late Justice Antonin Scalia. He ran as a Democrat for president in 2016, but dropped out because of insufficient funding. Get this, he actually had some kind words to say about Trump back then, saying Trump might be able to bring about campaign finance reform. But Lawrence isn’t the only Harvard professor to make the news lately.

Professor Cornel West suggested Americans are “losing the sense of collective project,” reported Campus Reform.

I agree! We’re losing our sense of collectiveness as Americans! We’re letting illegals invade our country and call themselves “undocumented citizens,” we’re letting cultural Marxism invade our textbooks and call itself scholarly wisdom. We’re letting so-called “provocative public intellectuals” like you invade our Twitter feeds while the social media stasi purges provocateurs who have the wrong opinions. We need to come together as a collective to fight that, isn’t that what you mean, Cornel?

The professor then proceeded to state that there is an “imperial meltdown in the American empire.”

Exactly how many colonies do you expect our king to lose, Cornel? And yes, please preach to me about integrity and compassion. those are the qualities motivating your employer, Harvard, as it revokes admission offers for memes exchanged in Facebook DMs, institutes penalties for kids who dare join single-gender frats and sororities, and discriminates against Asian American applicants — allegedly, don’t sue me — based on personality traits.

Prof Could Get FIRED For Pranking SocJus Academics

Published

on

Portland State philosophy professor Peter Boghossian, along with two others, figured they’d conduct an experiment and submit bogus articles on feminism, race studies, etc. to see if elite journals would fall for them, reported Campus Reform. Spoiler alert: they did. Peter and his trickster crew got seven articles published, ones ranging from “rape culture” in dog parks to a feminist version of Hitler’s Mein Kampf. But social justice academics were not about to let Peter get away with making an utter fool of them.

Portland State’s Institutional Review Board requires researchers to get “informed consent” from “human subjects” before conducting their experiment. But, of course, asking people if you can prank them kind of defeats the whole point of pranking them.

Here’s my issue. It would be one thing if the experiment these guys ran totally backfired and the academic journals rejected all of the essays. But out of the 20 articles Peter and his team submitted, seven got approved, seven got denied, with the rest left in limbo. I don’t know about you, but to me, when it comes to separating hard-hitting genius from hocus pocus garbage, the role of scholarship, 50 percent doesn’t seem like too good of a score.

And while it’s unclear how Portland State’s going to punish Peter, a dozen faculty members wrote a letter bashing the professor’s experiment. They said that “the ‘hoaxes’ are simply lies peddled to journals, masquerading as articles. They are designed not to critique, educate or inspire change in flawed systems, but rather to humiliate entire fields.”

Hmmm…what both humiliates but also triggers social change? A bunch of liberal arts and sciences and humanities professors signed that letter, but not one of them seems to know the word “SATIRE.”
