“I will always call on my Black women students first. Other POC get second tier priority. White women come next. And, if I have to, white men.” Now is this individual a bigot or a teaching assistant at an Ivy League university? Trick question: she’s both. Let’s check it out.
Stephanie McKellop is a history TA at the University of Pennsylvania who apparently uses a method called “progressive stacking” when she calls on students in her classes. Now, what is progressive stacking? The Wikipedia page McKellop links describes it as “a technique used to give marginalized groups a greater chance to speak.” The Occupy Wall Street movement used it and A. Barton Hinkle at the Richmond Times-Dispatch said that “lining up speakers by race and gender might not seem fair on an individual level,” suggesting the concept pertains to class more than individual. Because yes, this is a Marxist phenomenon.
McKellop insisted that she was “using a very well-worn pedagogical tactic which includes calling on people of color.” But that’s a bit disingenuous. She wasn’t simply including black students, but actively prioritizing them.. Anyway, there’s reason to believe McKellop isn’t just trying to ease oppression, but actively dislikes white people.
Here’s apparently how Stephanie ended one of the classes she taught: “At the end of the semester in the slavery class, I asked ‘who is racist?’ & said ‘all the white folk in here.’ Shook them, but learned them.”
Stephanie announced this month that she’s not teaching courses next semester, which is a shame because I was really looking forward to forking over $70,000 in tuition for the chance at being discriminated on the basis of my race and sex. But the grad student said it was because she had to take exams, not because she got fired. And hey, why SHOULD McKellop get fired? She’s not the only Ivy League teacher using progressive stacking. Harvard’s doing it too.
You know, Timothy and Stephanie are making great progress, but it’s not enough. While the students you guys are calling on may not be 100% white, the teacher in each of your classrooms is 100% white. I demand you resign from your positions and appoint in your place the most dark-skinned people you can find or else I’ll tell Black Lives Matter. You have one hour.
University Employees Stealing GOP Signs?
State University of New York New Paltz professor Laura Ebert is facing a larceny misdemeanor charge after a video appeared to show her removing GOP signs from a lawn, according to Campus Reform.
The professor said:
“I meant no personal harm, and don’t know the person whose lawn the sign was on. I have family I love that support Trump, so I was after the sign, not the person….I did it in a moment of weakness and high emotion.”
An an anti-Trump professor acting out of weakness and high emotion? You don’t say. And Laura wasn’t the only university employee messing with signs. Melissa Link, who serves as a managing editor of the environment and ethics over at the University of Georgia, also allegedly tore down GOP signs in her neck of the woods, reported Campus Reform.
She claimed it’s illegal to put political signs on road median strips, on roadsides, and grass separating the sidewalk from the road.
“If you see these [signs], please call ACC Code Enforcement at 706-613-3790 or feel free to rip them up yourself for proper disposal because they are considered litter,” she said. “Republican campaigns are infamous for lining roadsides near polling places with signs in the wee hours of the morning. This is illegal but not unexpected, they know they can’t win without cheating.”
Well, it turns out that neither the Official Code of Georgia, nor the municipal code for that Georgia county authorize random civilians to tear down signs. Now, some people might think it’s petty to hold university employees accountable for vandalizing signs or charging with battery individuals like Florida State student Shelby Shoup, who apparently worked on Florida Democrat Andrew Gillum’s campaign, threw chocolate milk on College Republicans, and kicked over a GOP sign.
But REMEMBER: the left has no qualms with holding THEIR political opponents’ feet to the fire over harmless jokes or not keeping up with the new term for “illegal alien.” Why not hold them accountable for actual crimes?
Twitter Suspends ‘White Genocide’ Prof For Celebrating Stabbing
Remember George Ciccariello-Maher, the professor who tweeted “all I want for Christmas is white genocide”? Well, he made a return to Twitter prominence last week, celebrating the stabbing of right-wing Brazilian presidential candidate Jair Bolsonaro, who’s been called the “Trump of Brazil.” You have to wonder if comments like these are why Georgie doesn’t seem to have a job anymore. Let’s take a look.
In one of the few instances of Twitter holding the far-left to account, former Drexel University professor George Ciccariello-Maher got suspended last week after saying “I was having a good day, and then fascist Jair Bolsonaro got stabbed…so now I’m having a *great* day.” It seems like Twitter suspended the former professor for 12 hours or fewer for “glorifying violence.” “We prohibit content that condones or celebrates acts of violence that could promote imitation of the act.”
George first came into the spotlight two years ago when he said “all I want for Christmas is white genocide,” which apparently was supposed to mock people who believe in white genocide, but he was still teaching at Drexel when, after the Las Vegas massacre last year, he said “white people and men are told that they are entitled to everything. This is what happens when they don’t get what they want,” reported The Daily Caller.
Ciccariello-Maher, who has since left both Drexel and New York University, has drawn a genius comparison between the national anthem and the Nazi salute and tweeted optimistically about a little kid beating a pinata of an ICE officer.
Don’t recall there being a Twitter suspension for THAT one, but good on Twitter for taking action this time, I guess? Personally, I’d rather have as few restrictions on speech as possible, but if the left is playing dirty in the culture war by stoking outrage to silence dissent, it might be time to fight fire with fire.
Illegal Alien Charged With Murdering Iowa Student
You’ve probably heard by now that an illegal alien has been charged with the murder of University of Iowa student Mollie Tibbetts. Now, taking the life of an American, especially one so young and full of opportunity, is definitely the most destructive thing an illegal alien could do to academia, but it’s not the only way in which they’ve been assaulting our campuses.
Authorities charged 24-year-old Mexican illegal alien Christian Bahena Rivera with the murder of Mollie Tibbetts. It would appear that the willingness to kill someone in a country whose resources he’s leeching isn’t the only way in which Christian is messed up — if the Daily Beast and some other outlets are correct, his parents didn’t even know how to spell “Christian.”
Mollie went missing over a month ago and Christian led investigators to her body, which was buried beneath corn stalks on a farm field near Brooklyn, Iowa. So there you have it — an American’s dreams ripped away by someone who’s not even supposed to be here.
The point is that Americans don’t OWN this crime. If our nation’s leaders had done a better job guarding the border, Mollie would’ve been finishing off her first week of classes at the University of Iowa right about now.
And remember: it’s not just lives that are at stake, it’s also our country’s resources. According to the Federation for American Immigration Reform, the federal government has spent over $1 billion and state governments have spent over $44 billion educating about 12.5 million illegal aliens and 4.2 million citizen children of illegal aliens.
We shower money and positive media coverage upon these people, bend over backwards to be politically correct when referring to them, and then get called racist for trying to address the problem — weak borders — that enabled them to commit the crime in the first place. Something doesn’t quite line up.
