I Hate Mike Adams
Townhall.com ^ | June 8, 2012 | Mike Adams

Posted on 06/08/2012 5:08:58 AM PDT by Kaslin

I love being hated. And if you don’t think I’m hated then you haven’t read my most recent rating on www.RateMyProfessor.com. For those too lazy to click the link (that means liberals), I’ve reprinted the latest rating below:

“I hate this guy on a personal level. He is a hyper-conservative homophobic a**hole. I disagree with his beliefs in every way and have never in my life had a professor or teacher I disliked more. I have to admit he's a good professor as far as covering course material in a clear manner, but his class policy is also very strict.”

In just four sentences, this student has succinctly summarized at least six major problems with liberalism in America. They follow in no particular order of importance:

1. Hate speech is a one-way street. When conservatives speak, their speech can still be labeled “hate speech” even if it does not contain the word “hate.” But liberals can avoid a charge of hate speech even when using the phrase “I hate” as an opener. Liberal hate is well-intentioned and tends to focus on broader social goals. It isn’t the words that determine whether something is free speech. It’s the sentiment that lies behind them.

2. Everyone else is extreme. The term hyper-conservative is usually applied to people who believe crazy things like “marriage involves one man and one woman” or “it’s wrong to dismember innocent babies.” According to liberals, about 80% of the population is “hyper-conservative” for one reason or another.

3. Every disagreement involves a “phobia.” A phobia is an irrational fear of something. Liberals usually apply this term to people like me who are not afraid to say anything. Absence of fear? Irrational fear? It’s all the same in the mind of the liberal.

4. Disagreement with ideas justifies personal vilification. Note that the above-quoted student links total disagreement with ideas to maximum “dislike” for individuals. Also, note that he does so in the same sentence. The cause/effect connection is inescapable. Because he disagreed with my “beliefs” the liberal student “disliked” me more than any other teacher. The student makes no effort to give any other reason than the ideas themselves. In other words, hatred of ideas = hatred of persons. And the former justifies the latter.

5. Qualifications are of minimal relevance. Eventually, the liberal student admits I cover the material in a “clear manner” - but not until after all the other personal attacks are aired. Personal characteristics are more important than competence. That is why a liberal clings to affirmative action like a conservative clings to guns and religion.

6. Standards are a form of oppression. Maybe he was mad that my ban on laptops in class kept him from getting status updates from the Perez Hilton Facebook fan page while listening to my lectures. Regardless, the insistence that we all follow rules did not mesh with his otherwise stellar commitment to equality. Liberals think standards are fine as long as they are applied to other people. When applied to everyone, the interest in equality is often replaced by an interest in tolerance.

Oddly enough, I feel sorry for this disgruntled student - although I’m glad he helped everyone better understand the liberal mindset. But he should not have had to wait until the end of the semester to express his hatred. So I’m coming to the rescue with a new plan than will help angry liberals (please pardon the redundancy) while earning me money for guns, cigars, guitars, and ammunition.

My plan is pure genius. It’s the new “I Hate Mike Adams” t-shirt, which will be available in small, medium, large, and extra-large sizes. This new t-shirt will be sold at all of my speeches under the following variable pricing scheme:

$12 for conservatives

$15 for liberals

$20 for feminists

$50 for homosexual rights activists

My reasoning for variable pricing is simply that some groups are angrier than others and will get more benefit from expressing their hatred. So, naturally, they should have to pay more. If you are a liberal, feminist, or homosexual activist who is taking one of my courses then feel free to wear it to class.

The “I Hate Mike Adams” t-shirt will replace the need for anonymous hate speech on RateMyProfessors.com. Everyone can come out of the closet at once and start contributing to my early retirement. And that’s a cause that both Mike Adams and his haters can get behind!

When I was looking at Grad schools several years back, I met with the Graduate Director at one of universities. When the topic of choosing an adviser came up, she told to to look at RateMyProfessor.com, as it was a valuable tool.

I don't go to that university, nor would I recommend that college to anyone.

Most to my colleagues don't bother reading student reviews. I personally flip through them while giving minimal thought.

You have to consider the source. Negative reviews are from someone who has done poorly in the course, so you are dealing with someone who is both immature and lazy. Neither quality makes someone you should base your opinions about yourself on.

... Negative reviews are from someone who has done poorly in the course ...

Just like product reviews that are available on any number of web sites. The 99+% of people that are satisfied don't bother to say anything.

Remember that guy who did the sting against ACORN? Before that, his Campus Conservative group ran “Affirmitive Action Bake Sales.” The prices were set based on Race and Ethniticity. White Males were charged the most while Black Females paid the lowest prices.

Clever way to demonstrate real discrimination!

Every FReeper needs to be on FB.

With a fake name and a throwaway email addy.

A lot of our leaders use it to disseminate info almost daily.

Palin, etc.

I click on the link and the first thing it tells me is there is a new episode of “Teen Wolf” on MTV tonight (I think they have NO music now). I wonder what this has to do with rating professors, something relating to an animal husbandry course? ;d

Nice tag line!

You like that?

Actually, I was thinking of Gary Payton - The Glove. He was damn good in his prime.

But, the name can and is being poached in this case, ‘cause it’s so damn good! Great work Impy!!!
