Clemson University professor labeled Trump supporters and Republicans as “racist scum”

Clemson University

Clemson UniversityThe Clemson University website reported that a professor labeled President Donald Trump supporters and Republican as “racist scum,” and says he appeared to advocate violence.

Now this is not very nice talk coming from a professor. Clemson may have to consider increasing the size of their safe space to accommodate those offended. But wait the offended are Trump supporters and Republicans so they are not childish little wimps. The elephant in the room is Colleges and Universities are full of Socialist Professors.

Knijnenburg is an assistant professor in Human-Centered Computing. In Knijnenburg’s online resume, he describes himself as a “researcher on privacy decision-making and recommender systems.” His resume says: “Our online lives are full of small but difficult decisions. Which app should I install? Should I post this on Facebook or not? … In my research, I try to understand the psychological principles behind these online decisions.”

Some of you may be asking as I did, what the hell is human-centered computing. Well Google describes it as the following. Humancentered computing (HCC) studies the design, development, and deployment of mixed-initiative human-computer systems. It is emerged from the convergence of multiple disciplines that are concerned both with understanding human beings and with the design of computational artifacts. Still seems like a wasted course to me.

Mitchell Gunter, the South Carolina Campus Correspondent For Campus Reform and an engineering student at Clemson, posted an article Wednesday that included several screen grabs attributed to Knijnenburg’s personal Facebook page, including one from Aug. 16 that said: “All trump supporters, nay, all Republicans, are racist scum.” In the comments on the post, Knijnenburg said: “All republicans? Yes. Your complacency made this happen. Pick a side: denounce your affiliation, or admit you’re a racist.”

When one commenter, who appeared to be a student, said that Knijnenburg’s remarks saddened him, Knijnenburg responded: “You should come live in the south for a while. It’s exhausting. The republican ideology of ‘everyone is equal and nobody deserves a handout’ is naive at best, covertly racist at worst. I truly believe that turning a blind eye makes you complicit in what is happening now.”

Another previous post on Aug. 12 said: “I admire anyone who stands up against white supremacy, Violent or non-violent. This needs to stop, by any means necessary. #PunchNazis”

All College Professors?

I thought name calling and generalizations were not allowed on college campuses today. What if a student were to say that all college professors are left-wing, ex-hippie socialist pieces of dog crap. Would that be a fair generalization Professor Knijnenburg?

Charles Barkley brings voice of reason to Confederate Statue debate

This is the same Clemson University that earlier this year set a policy that professors could not tell students they were “late” to class it was racist. So it is racist to expect a student to be on time I can perhaps understand the professors explanation of racism. I am sure President Trump and Republicans in general (sorry didn’t mean to offend anybody protesting Confederate Generals) expect people to be on time.

All of the posts and tweets have been removed and are only online in the screen grabs by Campus Reform.

Gunter told WYFF News 4: “These posts were publicly available prior to my reaching out to Professor Bart Knijnenburg. Following my media inquiry, I was blocked on Facebook, and I am given to believe he has privatized his account.”

Clemson University Relations Vice President Mark Land released a statement Wednesday: “The university is aware of remarks attributed to a Clemson faculty member, which appear to have come from his personal Facebook account, and is looking into the matter.

“The remarks in question are not reflective of the Clemson University’s views. The university has consistently made it clear that expressions condoning or advocating violence or hatred have no place on this, or any, college campus.”

Campus Reform describes itself as “a watchdog to the nation’s higher education system” that “exposes bias and abuse on the nation’s college campuses” It is a project of the Leadership Institute. The Leadership Institute, founded in 1979, describes itself training and teaching “conservatives of all ages how to succeed in politics, government and the media.”

 

 

You need Jesus, hate speech? Maybe at Kent State University

Hate speech

Hate Speech might just include “you need Jesus” at KSU. A Christian student leader is demanding an apology after a poster distributed by Kent State University asked if stating “You need Jesus“ could qualify as hate speech.

The public university’s Center for Student Involvement created and circulated the poster on Twitter last week. It was designed to promote an event on free speech issues as part of Kent State’s KENTTalks, which are intended to “provide a safe place for discussions and transformational experiences for our student body” and promote “civil discourse.”

Silhouetted activists on the posters hold a range of placards with messages, overlaid with the rhetorical question “free speech or hate speech?” Alongside provocative expressions including “No More Gays,” “Women Need To Serve Their Man” and “Build a Wall,” the fourth placard bears a nonviolent, basic expression of the Christian faith: “You need Jesus.”

Jared Small, president of the Campus Ministry International student organization, told The College Fix that the poster was inappropriate.

“The university should apologize because it appears to be targeted toward one political and religious side,” he wrote in an email:

They could have included hate speech against president Trump or hate speech against Christians as examples. In my opinion, free speech protects hate speech to an extent. However, the university appears to show a bias against Christians and conservatives.

Prof. Amy Reynolds, the dean of Kent State’s College of Communication and Information, moderated last week’s KENTTalks panel discussion on free speech.

She told The Fix in an email that she had no involvement in creating the poster for the event: The Center for Student Involvement “created all of the promotional materials … I’m not sure what the process is/was.”

Neither Eric Mansfield nor Emily Vincent, the executive director and director of Kent State media relations, responded to repeated Fix queries. Neither did Kristan Dolan nor Rick Danals, assistant director and assistant dean of the Center for Student Involvement.

Liberals have taken over American Colleges and Universities. They clamor for free speech and their definition of free speech is pretty crude. But something so caring as telling someone they need Jesus could soon be considered hate speech.

Cambridge University students need their “safe space” over Shakespeare

Cambridge University

Students at Cambridge University one of Great Britain and the world’s most prestigious universities are reportedly being given “trigger warnings” for sexual and violent scenes in the plays of William Shakespeare. Are you kidding me these same kids have grown up in schools giving them homosexual and oral sex training since grade school and now they have to go to their “safe space” over Macbeth?

Advocates of the ‘trigger warnings’ – alerting readers to potentially distressing material – say they protect people from the possibility of being upset, while critics argue that they curtail academic freedom.

Assuming both innocence and lack of knowledge of the bard’s most famous works, lecturers at Cambridge University have introduced the warnings for “potentially distressing topics.”

English-literature undergraduates were apparently cautioned before a lecture on Titus Andronicus and The Comedy of Errors. According to insiders at the top university, warnings were posted in the English Faculty’s ‘Notes on Lectures’ document.

If a student of English Literature doesn’t know that Titus Andronicus contains scenes of violence, they shouldn’t be on the course,” David Crilly, artistic director at the Cambridge Shakespeare Festival, told the Telegraph.

“This degree of sensitivity will inevitably curtail academic freedom. If the academic staff are concerned they might say something students find uncomfortable they will avoid doing it.”

Critics have called the warnings “fundamentally dishonest.”

“We have to encourage students to be able to face that, even when they find they’re awkward and difficult for all kinds of good reasons,”Mary Beard, a Professor of Classics at Cambridge, previously said.

Cambridge University denied having a trigger-warning policy.

“Some lecturers indicate that some sensitive material will be covered in a lecture by informing the English Faculty Admin staff,” a spokesman told The Times.

“This is entirely at the lecturer’s own discretion and is in no way indicative of a Faculty wide policy.”

It is truly sad the preparation that liberal institutions (and they are mental institutions) like Cambridge University are giving the leaders of tomorrow. They feed them sex education courses throughout their lives. Then offer pornography courses in college. Give them 50 choices for what freaking sex they are (God created MALE AND FEMALE). And then they have to send them to their “safe space” over Shakespeare.

Prestigious Private University professor says GOP and NRA must want mass shootings

Prestigious private university

A professor at a prestigious private University tweeted “There is no rational alternative, The GOP and the NRA must, in fact, want mass shootings, it serves their interest.” This liberal scumbag has since removed the tweet and apologized. Below is his statement according to Campus Reform.

“The tweet was sent in a moment of supreme frustration and sorrow after hearing the news of the shooting in Texas. I kept asking myself why the GOP and NRA would not support some more aggressive efforts at gun control to stop these increasingly frequent mass shootings.

“There is so much death, so much violence, so much heartache that results from these massacres. And it seemed all we could get from the GOP, which controls most of the levers of power in the country, was ‘thoughts and prayers.’ That did not seem like an adequate response. So I asked myself, if the GOP and NRA were acting rationally and in their own interest, why would they not do more? I concluded not doing more must somehow be in their rational interest.

“Upon reflection, now that my emotions have cooled somewhat, I do not actually believe the GOP or NRA wants mass shootings. I do believe, however, that gun control is a losing issue for Democrats, and opposition to gun control tends to be a winning issue for Republicans. So although the GOP and NRA most certainly do not want mass shootings, they welcome the gun control debate because it energizes their base and helps with fundraising. So that’s what I meant when I said it was in their interest.”

Universities and prestigious private University system  are full of liberals. The truth of the matter is that there are no cases of mass murders that have involved NRA members. This latest psycho was a godless atheist and made anti Republican rants on Facebook. At some point these liberal professors at prestigious private Universities need to be held accountable for their liberal rants.

You doubt Socialism has taken over Education? Indiana kindergarten parents told children should not speak of God and Jesus

taken

Socialism and Marxism have taken over public education and our Colleges and Universities. I know there are great teachers out there. Christian teachers trying to speak of God and Jesus when they can without getting fired.

But in a public elementary school in Indiana students recently were sent home with a letter from the teacher telling the parents that their children cannot talk about God, Jesus Christ, or the devil inside their classroom.

Winston Churchill aptly described socialism as “a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue [being] the equal sharing of misery.”  As economist Thomas Sowell put it, “socialism” in general has a record of failure so blatant that only an intellectual could ignore or evade it.”

The destruction of the US education system began with leading Marxist theorist Georg Lukacs book History and Class Consciousness. Lukacs believed that for a new Marxist culture to emerge, the existing culture had to be destroyed. He said, “I saw the revolutionary destruction of society at the one and only solution to the cultural contradictions or the epoch”, and “Such a worldwide overturning of values cannot take place without the annihilation of the old values and creation of new ones by the revolutionaries”.

Cultural Revolution in China

College students and certainly not a kindergartener today know little, if anything about the cataclysmic movement in China known as the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution. It began in 1966 before all of them (and even a great number of their professors) were born. This massive national crusade, instigated by Chairman Mao Zedong, was intended to create a pure communist man and woman, devoid of the constraints of materialism and personal ambition.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cultural_Revolution

It started with the closing of the schools and the re-education of intellectuals and the bourgeoisie and ended up with years of incredible violence, taking millions of lives. The actual statistics are still a state secret, but a recent biography of Mao states “at least 3 million people died violent deaths and post-Mao leaders acknowledged that 100 million people, one-ninth of the entire population, suffered in one way or another.”

Communist Propaganda was spread through loud-speakers and placed on billboards. If you dared to question their Cultural correctness you were singled out and learned not to speak up. Sound familiar? It is amazing to me on Facebook and Social media if you post a video of cats being silly or some crude comedian how many shares it gets. But my friends will not repost how Socialism is rooted in education, civil rights movement, feminism. Why is this? Because they are afraid of the backlash.

University of Missouri protest including football players threatening not to play

The cultural revolution rooted in European ideas from the Frankfort School in Germany has its roots in Columbia University. But Universities and Colleges across the US quickly were taken over by the Socialist mantra for fear of being singled out. What you now have is Clemson University setting a policy that it is “racist” to tell a student they are late. The University of Missouri President recently being forced to resign because someone drew a swastika in a bathroom and it offended someone. The University of Michigan has a Student Socialist Union as do most other large Universities. And no one would doubt or contradict that University of California at Berkeley is the Kremlin of US Universities (sorry some Ivy League schools might object).

For the past 5 decades institutions of higher learning have replaced History especially US History with multicultural studies, taken over with  cultural socialism and coddled students with “safe spaces”. The graduates that they produced went on to become lawyers and set up ground for Socialism. And many of them became High School teachers and Socialism, multiculturalism, liberal ideology was taught in High Schools.

Not actual Indiana teacher

This brings us back to the kindergarten teacher in Indiana telling parents their children cannot talk about God and Jesus Christ. Socialism in our schools has come full circle all the way to kindergarten. Just a couple of weeks ago I posted on a California kindergarten teacher reading a book and teaching on transgender because one of the students was going to have a reveal. How long before the Socialist reach pre-school programs?

 

 

Devos announces review of Obama era sexual misconduct guidance

sexual misconduct

sexual misconductThe Department of Education will change its approach to campus sexual misconduct and begin a public notice and comment process to issue new regulations, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos announced today. In a speech at George Mason University’s Antonin Scalia Law School, DeVos decried “a system run amok,” “kangaroo courts” and repeatedly emphasized the plight of the accused. “One rape is one too many … one person denied due process is one too many,” she said. Outside, protesters yelled, “Stop protecting rapists!”

sexual misconductTitle IX, a federal law passed in 1972, prohibits sex discrimination in education. It has been the driving force in the expansion of girl’s and women’s sports. Related post Feminism rooted in Marxism and Socialism

Barack Hussein Obama expanded the program as he did every socialistic idea to say that Title IX protects girls and women from the threat of sexual assault, harassment or a hostile environment while pursuing their educations. The elephant in the room is Sexual misconduct definition was greatly expanded.

In letters from The Office of Civil Rights colleges and K-12 schools were told to adopt a “preponderance of the evidence” standard, a lower burden of proof than is normally required in court.

And, OCR stepped up its own investigations of campuses over Title IX complaints. If colleges didn’t comply, they stood to lose access to federal student aid, which almost no school can afford to do.

Colleges and Universities had to hire Title IX compliance officers and create, new rules, policies and procedures. All of these new rules and regulations adding to the cost of every student’s college education.

I have three daughters, I would not want any of them to be the object of legitimate sexual harassment in college. I also have a son, I would not want him unfairly labeled for the rest of his life because some school is looking for everything that could possibly be labeled harassment.

As Secretary Devos stated “If everything is harassment, then nothing is harassment”. Just like if everything is racism, then nothing is racism. Related post Racist solar eclipse of 2017

In an emotional address, DeVos told anecdotes about accused students contemplating, and committing, suicide. She mentioned a controversial case in which a University of Southern California football player was expelled for what his girlfriend says was merely “playful roughhousing.”

 

She also denigrated sexual harassment codes that “trample free speech rights.”
