20 Of the Most Obnoxious Quotes From College Professors ^ | September 21, 2013 | John Hawkins

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. It’s 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 LaPierre’s 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. They’re cheap. They don’t 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 they’re doing for us,” said another College Republican. What are they doing for us? Nothing. But against us they’re 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 Saturday’s 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, we’ve been watching intifada in Palestine, we’ve been watching an uprising in Iraq, and the question is that what are we doing? How come we don’t 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 we’re sitting here and watching the world pass by, people being bombed, and it’s about time that we have an intifada in this country that change[s] fundamentally the political dynamics in here. And we know every– They’re gonna say some Palestinian being too radical — well, you haven’t 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 it’s 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…Let’s 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, I’d really be interested in hearing about it. -- Ward Churchill, University of Colorado at Boulder

I am currently in the MBA program at the University of Washington, and had my “indoctrination” course over the summer. It certainly was not as bad as any of the above, but it was called “Global and Domestic Economic Conditions” which is fancy speak for Macro Economics.

In the first class we had a discussion about Kant, Hayek and Friedman, and then the teacher wanted to “prove” something so she wrote on the board a graph, at which point I asked ... doesn’t that graph only recognize Kantian Theory? At this point she admitted she was a Kantian, but promised to try to show all sides.

Each week we had a quiz (and we were allowed to discuss the quiz with other students before we submitted it). Each quiz had 20 questions, each with 4 options. We were told there was one and only one correct answer for each question. On the very first quiz, I noticed particular wording on a question where there was one answer that was clearly Kantian, and another that took the Monetarist view. I mentioned this to my friend and told him ... well this (monetarist) follows my beliefs, but since the instructor is a Kantian, I bet this is the answer. Sure enough, I was right.

By the 5th quiz I got into a long heated email exchange with the TA over a particular answer to a particular question where the only way to get it “right” is to assume that a congressional aide would have no idea whether a tax bill were intended to be temporary or permanent (my argument that any bill that is not time limited is by definition permanent, and any bill that is time limited is temporary and will remain temporary unless other legislation is passed to extend it or make it permanent did not sway them).

I passed the course, but it was the worst grade that I got in the program to date.

Communists and Marxists.
If weren’t for the college industry these people would be lucky to get a job shoveling horse manure off a truck in Kentucky.

I would have thought that the most obnoxious thing said by college professors was

"No, it won't be an open-book exam."

I think all these perfessers should be put on an island somewhere with few resources, buck naked, and left behind for a few years. Call it a sociology experiment.

I was shocked to hear a broadcaster on the Weather Channel refer to the storm as one of “Biblical proportions”.

Not me. Y'know, like, the Bible is like a really BIG book, like with lots of words and stuff, y'know, and it was like, y'know, a really big mess.

/s, of course

Yes, I managed to type that with a straight face...well, almost.

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.

I think it would be fun to enroll in their classes for the express purpose of asking questions to rattle their cages (and maybe get some of the younger students thinking critically). If you aren't there for the degree, they have no power over you except to flunk you--and who cares!

Boy, that would frost their little cookies (and maybe awaken some of their students).

The liberal education establishment will not go away by itself. It is time to go on the offensive.

They didn't died so that their people might live-- in any condition. Their acts directly caused the deaths of tens of thousands of "their people" in Iraq and Aghanistan. They died because they identified with a criminally insane cult.

What a bunch of hate packed bitter souls.

I’m more sad than I am mad. If they yielded to the Lord, He could send their demons packing back to hell before you could say In God We Trust. Their problem can be solved if they are willing. Hell can’t be negotiated with, however. It has to be rebuffed, attacked, and crushed.

I believe Zinn-inspired "history" books are still being used in public schools.

Regarding #6 above, we DO have an intifada; it’s called the Tea Party Movement. If the Left doesn’t recognize it as such, it must be because (1) the participants are civilized human beings, (2) it is better organized, and (3) the Left doesn’t control it.

Islam is a religion AND a political system. The political part is totally incompatible with freedom and dignity. Shahid Alam is nuts.

And this goes double for Muslims and their sympathizers:

"No Communist, Fascist, or any other totalitarian committed to the destruction . . . of the principles and practices of democracy should be permitted to teach in a democracy. Freedom does not imply freedom to destroy freedom." -- Dr. Clarence R. Decker, President of the University of Kansas City, 1949

That’s your perspective, and mine FTM, on why they died.

They viewed it quite differently.

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!

Too much work, I'd opt for a claymore mine outside his front door.

Regarding: Bill Ayers and Bernedette Dohrn

That these two are alive and well ( and professionally and financiall thriving) is an indication of one of two things;

1) Profound respect for rule of law by Americans.

2) We as a nation, as a people, are beyond saving and are ripe for a swift and serious fall.

Nearly every teacher in this nation was trained by godless Marxists in Marxist run colleges and universities.

This includes:

K-12 private and government institutional schools.
Colleges and university Undergraduate through graduate schools
Nursery school ( Yep! It starts that young. )

Vladamire Lenin: “.. Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted. “

( No,..... that does not mean that every teacher in this nation is a Marxist, but their training **does** effect the classroom and what is taught and how it is taught. )

For me, that would be step two. I would love to see the look on his and Bernardine's faces when they comes home to a trashed house (not done by me of course), complete with graffiti. Then, a few days later, when they moved to a new place, step two, but a weak one (not done by me of course) that wouldn't take them out too quickly.

I'm big on someone (not me of course) letting the guy know why he is expiring.
