Professors Blame Racism, Republicans for Government Shutdown

lg8A regular column dedicated to reporting on the slanted teaching, mis-administration and sheer insanity of our nation’s colleges and universities.

Top Stories:

  • Professors at campuses across the nation have been quick to lay blame for the government shutdown. And they are not blaming Barack Obama or the Democrats.  University of Pennsylvania Associate Professor Anthea Butler claimed on twitter that racism against President Obama was responsible for the shutdown stating that a previous shutdown had taken place under the leadership of “fake black president Clinton” but this time Republicans have a “real black president to mess with.”
  • Assistant Professor Rachel Slocum at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse sent students in her geography class an email stating that “some of the data gathering assignment will be impossible to complete until the Republican/tea party controlled House of Representatives agrees to fund the government” due to the Census website, among other resources, being unavailable. When a student objected to the partisan email, Slocum sent a second email to her class claiming that she hadn’t “meant to be partisan” but still laying out essentially the same argument and further stating that “It’s important to recognize that within the Republican party there is disagreement over how to govern. Many are not happy with this all or nothing style that people on the far right (who refer to themselves as the Tea Party) are advocating.”
  • Students at Columbia University and Barnard College staging a joint production of The Vagina Monologues have banned white students from participating in the performance on the grounds that the show “has historically overlooked the empowerment of women of color, queer women, and trans* folk, among others—often replicating and perpetuating the same systems of power and privilege that prompted the playwright, Eve Ensler, to write The Vagina Monologues in the first place.”  The Facebook page for the event notes that the board’s decision to restrict participation to “self-identified women of color” was unanimous and will “center traditionally marginalized identities within the feminist community, creating a space in which the voices, stories, and experiences of women of color can be heard, acknowledged, and addressed.”
  • University of Maryland administrator William Dorland, who serves as the director of the university’s Honors College, stated in an email welcoming students back to campus for the fall term that “This year, we learned that it is legal to hunt down and kill American children in Florida,” alluding to the acquittal of George Zimmerman in the shooting of Trayvon Martin. Dorland continued on to note that, “This year, the most activist Supreme Court in the history of the United States and radical factions of gun owners, gun manufacturers, and marijuana users are challenging the very fabric of the nation…”  Despite complaints from some students and faculty about the email, Dorland insisted “In my job here I’m pretty apolitical.”
  • A pro-life demonstration held by Indiana University’s newly formed Students for Life chapter outside the student union was greeted with vandalism and hate-fueled comments on behalf of other students at the university.  One student grabbed a number of the crosses which had been placed in the ground to signify deaths from abortion and threw them in the trash can.  When asked to stop he shouted that abortion “was awesome” and “you are all ignorant people and need to keep your beliefs to yourself.”  Another man was caught on video proclaiming “You’re in conflict with the world that I want, which is a world where all your churches burn.”

University of Montana Faculty Fight Back Against New Policies [TheFire.org]

University of Montana (UM) faculty members continue to voice significant concerns about the university’s new sexual harassment policies and procedures, approved by the Departments of Justice and Education last week. Faculty are concerned about a provision that requires staff training on sexual assault and requires that the university provide the Department of Justice with the names of faculty who do not attend this training. Further, as The Washington Free Beacon reports today, several faculty members were troubled by the new sexual harassment policy’s apparent presumption of guilt and authorization of punishment for protected speech.

      More threats from the crazy Right. Why do liberals giggle at you and your ilk? Why do progressive think you’re idiots? Why have Democrats won the popular vote in every presidential election but one since 1988? Because of crazy sh*t like that. You aren’t a patriot, sir. You’re an ill-informed buffoon.

      • ziggy zoggy

        More nonsense from the unhinged left. There is no right. There are only conservatives moderates and left-wing extremists. Lefties are like the dorks who laugh at cool people behind their backs out of hopeless envy. 1988. What a selective year for a moron to use. No Democrat has ever been elected by the loony left. Moderates and conservatives who foolishly thought those Dems would represent their interests better than the Republican candidates did so. Marxism is not liberal, spaz. And liberal means “tolerant and progressive,” you ignorant moron.

        Oh, yeah. Expect a thrashing in 20014. America hates you.

  • JuneUSA

    The lowest of the low, professors, teachers ,colleges, schools, politicians and others that teach hate and lies. Instead of teaching tools for the future, they teach hate because they can and they have no shame or concern for those they teach. The students share the blame because they take every word as truth instead of learning if it is truth.

      • ziggy zoggy

        They couldn’t even pass a contemporary eighth grade test – in any subject. The eighth grade now is comparable to the third grade back in the sixties, before freaks like her destroyed our education system. College degrees today are the equivalent of graduated junior high back when we had scholarship standards.

        • BS77

          In the earlier decades of the twentieth century,…students were taking classes in Latin, Algebra and Geometry, Shop, reading the classics in English Literature, learning chemistry, Civics, Science, History….tests were very difficult and demanding. Now most students coast through the easiest and most pathetic curriculum imaginable. And, oh, by the way, there was shhhhhhhhhhhhh….can you grasp this….SCHOOL PRAYER!!!!!!!!!!!

        • HarvardSince07

          Fascism is actually quite accepted at Harvard just letting you know. And nope i going for my Phd in hoping to spread the word about uneducated backwards republicans such as yourself. The ivy league will always be liberal deal with it!

            No, don’t . The Ivy League is an institution that used to be great and respected around the World, but has now declined into a haven for semi-literate brainwashed morons. Send her to a university that still has honest teaching and not political propaganda disguised as teaching.

            any suggestions?

    She is right it is the bigoted, racism of the Supreme Ruler of the U.S.A. Hussien Obama who is the problem. The more damage he can cause to the nation before he leaves,”if he hasn’t changed the law so he doesn’t have to” the better he likes it. He wants to stop whites from owning guns if he can and totally open the borders to the 3rd world so whites will become the minority as soon as possible. He figures his gangs of racist black power hood rats will do the rest. I am sure he would like his black panther pals to go to white homes to confiscate their guns. If he can just get control of the house? That is his goal. To make it impossible for white people to defend themselves.

  • patriot1742

    Harvardsince07,

    “And nope i going for my Phd in hoping to spread the word about uneducated backwards republicans such as yourself.”

    I assume that is a hastily-typed error and not the way you actually write.

    Before you get that Phd, I suggest you get out in the real world and get some life experience. Then you might have something to offer your future students when you become a liberal professor.

    Who knows. You might become the next Norman Finkelstein.

    PS: (Who is an idiot with a PhD.)

  • 2jm1

    Read your
    comment, you stated; “oh, you mean like in 2009 when the Democrat controlled
    House refused to listen to and/or accept ANY Republican input on the terrible
    national health law?”

    Here are
    some FACTS: On February 24, 2009 — In a joint session to Congress, President
    Obama stated Health care reform cannot wait, it must not wait, and it will not
    wait another year. March 5, 2009 — The Obama White House holds its first health
    care summit. April 21, 2009 — Senate Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus
    (Democrat) and Ranking Member Chuck
    Grassley (Republican) held the first
    of three roundtables of health policy with industry experts to discuss
    the development of health care legislation. July 15, 2009 — The
    Senate’s Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee passes The Affordable
    Health Choices Act. The bipartisan
    bill includes more than 160 REPUBLICAN ACCEPTED amendments during
    the month-long mark-up, one of the longest in congressional history. NO REPUBLICAN INPUT? Give me a break plus
    your Republican majority Supreme Court upheld the law.

    You also
    stated: “wait, maybe you mean one side should be willing to accept some change
    in how our federal government continues to balloon and bloat on a diet of
    out-of-control federal spending, even though every single rational thinking human
    being (that can do simple math) realizes our country is headed toward a
    complete financial meltdown?”

    YES, the Republican Congress should cut
    the budget by holding corporations accountable for not paying taxes instead of
    penalizing low income Americans and their children by denying health care for
    all.

    FACT: The GAO conducted at the request of Sens.
    Levin and Tom Coburn (R-Okla.), comes at a time when U.S. companies are
    complaining that their tax rate is among the highest in the world and should be
    cut to help them stay competitive. The
    GAO found U.S. Companies Pay Just One-Third of the Legal Tax Rate: Companies
    have lots of legal loopholes that help them avoid paying taxes, including the
    ability to stash foreign profits offshore indefinitely. A recent study by the
    reform-advocacy group Citizens for Tax Justice found that at least 18 big U.S.
    companies, including Apple, Microsoft and Nike, are avoiding paying a combined
    $92 billion in taxes by using offshore tax shelters. When some U.S.
    corporations use unjustifiable loopholes and offshore gimmicks to avoid paying
    Uncle Sam, their tax burden is shifted onto hardworking American families and
    small business. Another recent GAO report found that corporate tax avoidance
    might cost the U.S. government $180 billion per year.

    YES, the Republican
    Congress that is bought and paid for by Corporations did cause the shut-down
    which cost the American tax payer over 24 billion dollars. Let’s see 180
    billion plus 24 billion, OH BUT, shame on a teacher for giving HER students the
    facts. Quit getting all your information
    from the Anti-American treasonous conservative news (FOX, RUSH ETC.) and find a
    hard working underpaid teacher to give you some facts. And yes, try supporting your President, you
    can do it, just pretend he is white.

    There is a rather funny movie made in the mid 90s called PCU. It pokes lots of fun at these sorts of Cause Heads. This week they oppose meat. Next week, Fur. “What about protesting for world peace?”

    “Oh, that was last week.”

    Naturally, like the 80s movie Serial that poked fun at liberals, PCU isn’t discussed much on the Left.

    They have no sense of humour.
    They have no sense.
    The speak in slogans, not complete sentences conveying complete thoughts.

    And best of all, they learned it all in college and will continue paying back the loans taken out to become a Leftist prodigy for years to come.

    Isn’t America great!
