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.
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.
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!
This one is more or less true.
Depending on how you define the various terms, particularly "free" and "dignity."
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.
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.
"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.
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.
Islam is a religion AND a political system. The political part is totally incompatible with freedom and dignity. Shahid Alam is nuts.
"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

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. )
If I were a liberal in 2013, I’d be laughing and crapping on everyone too.
