Skip to comments.20 Of the Most Obnoxious Quotes From College Professors
Posted on 09/21/2013 4:21:04 AM PDT by Kaslin
College classrooms are supposed to be politically neutral, not indoctrination centers for liberalism. Yet, we have conservative parents who save money for decades to send their children to universities that teach everything conservatives believe is wrong. We have Republican state legislatures that fund colleges whose first goal is to teach college kids to vote Republicans out of office. We have colleges that claim to care deeply about diversity; yet they work overtime to keep conservative professors and conservative speakers off campus. It's time to draw a line in the sand and say, "Communists, bombers, criminals, deviants, and political activists masquerading as teachers have no business teaching on college campuses and if public universities fail to recognize that, then it's time to cut off their funding"
As you read these quotes, ask yourself if someone who would say these sort of things should be allowed to shape and guide young, impressionable college students.
20)We need to think very, very clearly about who the enemy is. The enemy is the United States of America and everyone who supports it. --Haunani-Kay Trask, University of Hawaii at Manoa
19) 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. ...How does a country deal with the fact that some of its most revered historical figures had certain moral values and political views virtually identical to Nazis? -- Robert Jensen, University of Texas at Austin
18) I think it is shameful that it is perceived as legitimate to solicit in an academic institution for support for men and women who have gone overseas to kill other human beings. I understand that there is a residual sympathy for service members, perhaps engendered by support for troops in World War II, or perhaps from when there was a draft and people with few resources to resist were involuntarily sent to battle. That sympathy is not particularly rational in today's world, however. -- Michael Avery, Suffolk University Law School
17) I know they say (Stalin) killed 20, 30, 40 million people. Its bullsh*t. (I have yet to find) one crime that Stalin committed. -- Grover Furr, Montclair State University.
16) The people of the Third World need our sympathetic understanding and, much more than that, they need our help. We can provide them with a margin of survival by internal disruption in the United States. Whether they can succeed against the kind of brutality we impose on them depends in large part on what happens here. -- Noam Chomsky, MIT
15) [I] want Wayne LaPierres head on a stick. -- Erik Loomis, University of Rhode Island
14) On September 11, 2001, nineteen Arab hijackers too demonstrated their willingness to die and to kill for their dream. They died so that their people might live, free and in dignity. -- Shahid Alam, Northeastern University
13) If you go to the Republican convention in Florida, you see all of the old Republicans with the dead skin cells washing off them. Theyre cheap. They dont want to pay taxes because they have already raped this country and gotten everything out of it they possibly could. -- William S. Penn, Michigan State University
12) My experience traveling the last ten years has been that the majority of people who are activists have stayed the course in a way, in a variety of ways, devoted to overthrowing everything hateful about this government and corporate structure that we live in; capitalism itself, herself, himself, and determined to try to keep open and figure out how to move on...We who are, as we used to say, in the belly of the beast, it again means not that it's the only purveyor of violence in the world, but that we have an extraordinary special responsibility, not necessarily the most enviable one, of how to act here, inside the heart of the monster. -- Bernardine Dohrn, Northwestern University
11) We get to show the troops we still appreciate what theyre doing for us, said another College Republican. What are they doing for us? Nothing. But against us theyre doing a lot: creating anti-American terrorists in the countries they occupy. ...Why do Republicans care so much about the military? Because the military-industrial complex is dear to their simplistic laissez-faire fantasies: a bottom-line patriotism that excludes the people at the bottom. -- Thomas Walker, Iowa State University
10) The vast majority of 9/11 observances in this country cannot be seen as politically neutral events. Implicit in their nature are the notions that lives lost at the World Trade Center are more valuable than lives lost in Afghanistan, Iraq, Palestine and elsewhere; that the motives of the 9/11 attackers had nothing to do with genuine grievances in the Islamic world regarding American imperialism; and that the U.S. has been justified in the subsequent killing of hundreds of thousands in so-called retaliation.
The observance at Saturdays football game was no different. A moment of silence was followed by a military airplane flyover; in between, Block-I students chanted USA, USA. This was neither patriotism nor remembrance in any justifiable sense, but politicization, militarism, propaganda and bellicosity. The University is a public institution that encompasses the political views of all, not just the most (falsely) patriotic. Athletic planners should cease such exploitation for political purposes. They might at least consider how most Muslim students, American or otherwise, would respond to this nativist display; or better, Muslims and others that live their lives under the threat of our planes, drones and soldiers.
The overwhelmingly white, privileged, Block-I students should be ashamed of their obnoxious, fake-macho, chicken-hawk chant, while poverty-drafted members of their cohort fight and die in illegal and immoral wars for the control of oil. -- David Green, University of Illinois
9) I live to harass white folks. -- Derrick Bell, Harvard
8) To support the new NRA president's agenda of arming the populace for confrontation with the government is bloody treason. And many invite it gladly as if the African-American president we voted for is somehow infringing on their Constitutional rights. Normally, I am a peaceable man, but in this case, I am willing to answer the call to defend the country. From them. To turn the song lyric they so love to quote back on them, "We'll put a boot in your ---, it's the American way." Except it won't be a boot. It'll be an M1A Abrams tank, supported by an F22 Raptor squadron with Hellfire missiles. Try treason on for size. See how that suits. And their assault arsenal and RPGs won't do them any good. -- Christopher Swindell, Marshall University
7) The blood is on the hands of the #NRA. Next time, let it be YOUR sons and daughters. Shame on you. May God d*mn you. -- David Guth, University of Kansas
6) Are you angry? [Yeah!] Are you angry? [Yeah!] Are you angry? [Yeah!] Well, weve been watching intifada in Palestine, weve been watching an uprising in Iraq, and the question is that what are we doing? How come we dont have an intifada in this country? Because it seem[s] to me, that we are comfortable in where we are, watching CNN, ABC, NBC, Fox, and all these mainstream giving us a window to the world while the world is being managed from Washington, from New York, from every other place in here in San Francisco: Chevron, Bechtel, [Carlyle?] Group, Halliburton; every one of those lying, cheating, stealing, deceiving individuals are in our country and were sitting here and watching the world pass by, people being bombed, and its about time that we have an intifada in this country that change[s] fundamentally the political dynamics in here. And we know every Theyre gonna say some Palestinian being too radical well, you havent seen radicalism yet. -- Hatem Bazian, U.C. Berkeley
5) Real freedom will come when [U.S.] soldiers in Iraq turn their guns on their superiors. -- John Daly, Warren County Community College
4) There are some circumstances, for example, where the newborn baby is severely disabled and where the parents think that its better that child should not live, when killing the newborn baby is not at all wrong not like killing the chimpanzee would be. -- Peter Singer, Princeton
3) The only true heroes are those who find ways that help defeat the U.S. military...I personally would like to see a million Mogadishus. -- Nicholas De Genova, Columbia University
2) Kill all the rich people. Break up their cars and apartments. Bring the revolution home, Kill your parents. -- Bill Ayers, University of Illinois at Chicago
1) As to those in the World Trade Center Lets get a grip here, shall we? True enough, they were civilians of a sort. But innocent? Gimme a break. If there was a better, more effective, or in fact any other way of visiting some penalty befitting their participation upon the little Eichmanns inhabiting the sterile sanctuary of the twin towers, Id really be interested in hearing about it. -- Ward Churchill, University of Colorado at Boulder
It’s brainwashing. Try to get into debates with some who have been indoctrinated, young people and many are brainwashed.
Yet, the term escapes me, they are suppose to be able to intelligently debate this. I even ran into some where college profs were held up in high esteem.
Don’t forget the $5000 in annual property taxes to indoctrinate your kids from K thru 12. It costs serious money to turn our children into communist brownshirts...
One must admit that all of these professors are brilliant, intellectual, really-really smart individuals who are superior in every way to those knuckle-dragging,
bible-thumping, gun-loving idiots living in flyover country.
It’s interesting to see that the #1 is from the University of Colorado at Boulder, one of the areas hit by the recent floods. I was shocked to hear a broadcaster on the Weather Channel refer to the storm as one of “Biblical proportions”. Didn’t even know those people knew anything about the Bible and seem to always be chalking everything up to global warming or climate change.
I think Bill Ayers is rich. Shouldn't we break up his cars? I don't think he lives in an apartment, but shouldn't we break up his house? It was his command. Must Obey Bill Ayers!
All of the above are insane, some more than others, but this one struck me because I've read quite a bit about this battle. While this was a military misadventure (due to BILL CLINTON and a Democrat administration who knew nothing about the military - sound familiar?), we were not defeated.
Our military went into the heart of enemy territory, armed only with light weapons, and stood off an enemy with nearly limitless firepower and manpower. They did this in an urban environment which favors the defender.
The kill ratio against the Somalis was something like 50 to 1, in favor of the US. Looked at another way, what the US Military (particularly our Special Forces) did was nothing short of a miraculous feat of arms.
Viewed from that angle, De Genova is essentially calling for the eradication of literally millions of people, if you do the math. But I'm sure, being a college professor, math isn't his strong suite.
In the 1920s, the influential Italian communist Antonio Gramsci wrote that in order to take over a country or a society, communists first had to take over its institutions, by which he meant the media, the education system, the universities, the legal profession, voluntary organisations and churches. Methodically, and slowly but surely, his idea was put into practice. All of those very institutions have been taken over by the far Left in our country, and they are now taking us to our doom.
Right, Stalin never killed anyone. He was only GIVING ORDERS!
Small item on the plus side. I read yesterday that Guth was suspended.
It would be nice to make that suspension permanent. But we have to start somewhere.
Keep pushing back against the evil propaganda and those who preach it.
Long gone are the days when an instructor would have a student take the opposing position and argue it, forcing research that might de-propagandize the student.
This one is more or less true.
Depending on how you define the various terms, particularly "free" and "dignity."
I think the concept is of “critical thinking” which is to confront the ideologue.
Unfortunately when ideologues are in a position of power they attempt to use that power to simply shut up the free thinker, and shut down the discussion. At that point we enter dark times, “force on man” as Ayn Rand would say.
These idiots live in a bubble of their own creation. The comments on economics is akin to alchemists ridiculing modern material scientists. They hate capitalism and profit(ewwwww!) except for when they profit, of course.
Their sympathy for the common man is clouded by their contempt for the common man. Their disdain for the founding and formation of this country is contrasted by their cozy existence that is a direct result of this founding and formation.
They hate the power of our military but would be enslaved to tyrants without this military. To them, patriotism is a fool's errand, yet they bow to ever-failed ideology. They speak of doing violence against their perceived oppressors, but despise the armed forces. These cowards would run and hide when the first shot was fired.
They hate whitey while they enjoy a six figure income with tenure.
I believe this is the Biblical definition of double-minded. And how will this end?
The guy said this kind of stuff every day in his somewhat measured to the public, stoned out kind of way; and this was long ago.
These individuals are sick and guilty of student-brain abuse.
