Prof: ‘White privilege’ behind many mass shootings, parts of the Tea Party
Campus Reform ^

Posted on 01/18/2013 11:03:04 AM PST by oliverdarcy

A professor from a public university on Wednesday claimed mass shootings, such as those in Newtown Conn., and Aurora Colo., are often the effects of jilted “white privilege.”

Robert Jensen, who is a journalism professor at the University of Texas at Austin, also suggested race-based alienation is a motivating factor behind some parts of the conservative Tea Party movement.

“Why are the men who commit mass murder disproportionately white?” Jensen asked rhetorically. “My guess is that it has something to do with the sense of entitlement that most white people feel.”

UT journalism professor Robert Jensen receives backlash after writing editorial criticizing Thanksgiving

November 26, 2012 at 11:02 am By David Maly

An editorial by journalism professor Robert Jensen criticizing the celebration of Thanksgiving stirred critics during the holiday break, prompting a stream of email and editorial responses.

In an editorial “No Thanks for Thanksgiving,” republished on alternet.org, Jensen discusses the history of the holiday, calling the actions of English settlers genocide.

“Simply put: Thanksgiving is the day when the dominant white culture (and, sadly, most of the rest of the non-white but non-indigenous population) celebrates the beginning of a genocide that was, in fact, blessed by the men we hold up as our heroic founding fathers,” Jensen’s editorial stated.

The editorial goes on to compare the values of some of the founding fathers to those of Nazis.

Par for the course for Jensen. He’s pretty much a Ward Churchill clone. Everything is blamed on white privilege, or misogyny, or American imperialism ... blah, blah, blah.

Don’t know if this is true or not but I’m willing to lay odds it’s true. It would be interesting if a study with all those nifty charts and tables were done with the data clearly illustrating it’s the liberal nutcases that do it. You know how much liberals trust fancy charts and graphs and like to use idiotic jpeg files to make snide comments...lol

Here is one of the reasons for gun violence, professor:

The REAL Killer? List Of School Shootings That May Be Linked To SSRI’s

Should we demand that SSRI (Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor) be banned?

Eric Harris age 17 (first on Zoloft then Luvox) and Dylan Klebold aged 18 (Colombine school shooting in Littleton, Colorado), killed 12 students and 1 teacher, and wounded 23 others, before killing themselves. Klebold’s medical records have never been made available to the public.

Jeff Weise, age 16, had been prescribed 60 mg/day of Prozac (three times the average starting dose for adults!) when he shot his grandfather, his grandfather’s girlfriend and many fellow students at Red Lake, Minnesota. He then shot himself. 10 dead, 12 wounded.

Cory Baadsgaard, age 16, Wahluke (Washington state) High School, was on Paxil (which caused him to have hallucinations) when he took a rifle to his high school and held 23 classmates hostage. He has no memory of the event.

Chris Fetters, age 13, killed his favorite aunt while taking Prozac.

Christopher Pittman, age 12, murdered both his grandparents while taking Zoloft.

Kevin Rider, age 14, was withdrawing from Prozac when he died from a gunshot wound to his head. Initially it was ruled a suicide, but two years later, the investigation into his death was opened as a possible homicide. The prime suspect, also age 14, had been taking Zoloft and other SSRI antidepressants.

Alex Kim, age 13, hung himself shortly after his Lexapro prescription had been doubled.

Diane Routhier was prescribed Welbutrin for gallstone problems. Six days later, after suffering many adverse effects of the drug, she shot herself.

Most likely a case of projection.

This professor probably secretly realizes his inadequacies in his government job and believes he occupies the position due of his skin color. Because he understands that he, personally, is a beneficiary of white privilege, he assumes all other white folks are as underwhelming as himself.

While his gift of reason is evidently limited, his assumption on how he reached his position is likely accurate.

Clearly, the one *and only* cause of such mass killings are colleges of journalism and unethical journalism professors.

The evidence is clear. First, such schools have ruined the quality of news reporting in the United States. Many years ago, high school graduate reporters under the strict supervision of trained editors, produced much better quality, objective and accurate news stories; not fictions polluted with uneducated opinion, bias, and outright prejudice that we see today.

Second, the obsession of colleges of journalism to not blame the actual perpetrators of such events, but to imagine far fetched and ludicrous connections that did not exist, encouraged society to loosen its control over violent mentally ill criminals.

Clearly this professor of journalism is to a great extent culpable in the Newtown shootings, and likely the Aurora theater killings as well. As such, he is an accessory before and after the fact, and someone who agitates the mentally ill to carry out such acts.

“Why are the men who commit mass murder disproportionately white?” Jensen asked rhetorically. “My guess is that it has something to do with the sense of entitlement that most white people feel.”

My guesss is more like this. They spend 18 to 20 years of being told that they are responsible for every problem in America, when they have never victimized anyone.

They see girls and minorites who are no better, and who are often worse than him, celebrated and feted with “take daughter to work day’, and “black history month”. He gets treated to pol pot style discussions where he is encouraged to understand his guilt for everyones misery.

He often does VERY well in all his classes but finds it still brings him no respect. He gets depressed and withdraws. So mom takes him to the doctor who immediately puts him on powerful psychoactive meds.

Now he’s depressed, doped up, and isoated. He sure isn’t feeling the privilege he supposedly wields.
If he things about college, he discovers an avalanche of scholarships that are restricted to women, minorities, illegal aliens, ANYBODY except a white male.

Someday, something becomes the straw that breaks the camels back. Maybe another casual remark from a teacher, maybe a girl screams with glee at winning a huge scholarship he couldnt even apply for. Maybe the meds overcome him finally.

But i think something like that is why they decide that they will walk in and start killing people. Not a supposed life of white privilege.

This stinking bag of excrement is a hater of the White race and Christians in particular. In the days when Texas had real men, he would have been dragged into the street in the middle of the night, tarred and feathered, tied to his horse and chased out of town.

Instead, he has tenure at the “flagship” (or “fagship”) university of this state and is given a huge salary which comes from the taxes of hard-working White Christians in Texas. We can blame the worthless regents of ut for that atrocity.

When black or Hispanic gang members kill each other and innocent bystanders is it mass murder? Mass murder happens all the time, but it is ignored by the leftist media because the people doing it aren’t white.
