Professors Blame Racism, Republicans for Government Shutdown
Frontpage Magazine ^ | 10/1/13 | Sara Dogan

Posted on 10/11/2013 11:19:01 PM PDT by Impala64ssa

◾Professors at campuses across the nation have been quick to lay blame for the government shutdown. And they are not blaming Barack Obama or the Democrats. University of Pennsylvania Associate Professor Anthea Butler claimed on twitter that racism against President Obama was responsible for the shutdown stating that a previous shutdown had taken place under the leadership of “fake black president Clinton” but this time Republicans have a “real black president to mess with.” ◾Assistant Professor Rachel Slocum at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse sent students in her geography class an email stating that “some of the data gathering assignment will be impossible to complete until the Republican/tea party controlled House of Representatives agrees to fund the government” due to the Census website, among other resources, being unavailable. When a student objected to the partisan email, Slocum sent a second email to her class claiming that she hadn’t “meant to be partisan” but still laying out essentially the same argument and further stating that “It’s important to recognize that within the Republican party there is disagreement over how to govern. Many are not happy with this all or nothing style that people on the far right (who refer to themselves as the Tea Party) are advocating.”

Raachel Jeantal's mama? Not surprised if she can't read cursive. First the sex abuse scandal, then the climate change scandal. Outraged, but not surprised.

What kind of moron do you have to be to think that this partial government “shutdown” means the nation is closed? This idiot really cannot distinguish the government and the country?

This person is that stupid?

You are correct, but let’s not forget the cost of such lies from powerful governments.

Affirmative action hire.

But you can have six Ph.D.s and still be an ignoramus, and a great many “professors” are precisely that.

Racism against President Obama?

No.

I only disagree with his white half.

Completly qualified to be a professor in this upside down country.

Not surprised. My brother (I hesitate to claim his liberal a$$ a lot of the time) has his Ph.D. and teaches at a small, private college in upstate NY.

He has been all over Facebook and Twitter commenting about how this is all the R’s fault, Ocare is the ‘law of the land’, the R’s are just spreading sour grapes etc. etc. The other day he even told a friend of his on FB that she was “too intelligent to be a conservative”.

When his conservative friend pointed out that slavery and segregation used to be the law of the land and that people overturned those laws, he went crazy! He was shocked that she could equate Ocare to slavery and segregation.

His opinion is that Ocare is Americans helping Americans and so what if people that have more money have to pay a little more to help out their fellow man. His conservative friend’s take was that Americans helping Americans are things like volunteering, donating items to charity, giving to charity....he didn’t get it. Never will.

Ask your brother why he is molesting the children’s future. Only an idiot or an evil person would screw the children like the democrats.

He's so far out there that there's no reasoning with him and it just makes me angry. So I read, tell my husband the latest ridiculous comment he makes and we commiserate with each other that he's part of our family. Oh, when he makes these pronouncements he calls himself "Commonsense Man". I feel bad for his students.

There were eight shutdowns when Reagan was president - was that down to racism? There were five when Carter was president - and incidentally the democrats controlled the Senate AND the House when he was in the Whitehouse - so was that racist?

Really, even geography professors need to understand cause and affect.

The professors in our colleges and universities are the dark corner of Communist thought in our nation. The problem is they cannot be challenged because that would affect a student’s grade.

We should not be judging someone by how they look. However, you bring out an interesting point. Feminism has a look that does make a woman appear frumpy. It is a good thing that the Left has not come up with the Fashion Police. These feminist would be in trouble.

Most professors are tenured leeches on society. There are many outstanding professors that shouldn’t suffer the stigma of the academic wasteland monetized by frauds that refuse to grow up and get a “real” life.

The kind of moron that thinks her students can actually learn something useful on an assignment that requires getting ‘data’ from a government web site that is truthful.

I would take a President Mia Love, a President Herman Cain, a President J.C. Watts, a President Walter Williams or any of a host of others in a heartbeat before tolerating President Bystander stumbling through a single additional unprecedented (and either meaningless or destructive) milestone.

The various leftist profs and talking heads blame racism for hangnails and mildew stains on their shorts. It’s best to ignore the jabbering animals in the zoos/colleges.

True, though the real tragedy is once these students graduate, most of them will be on the hook for 10’s of thousands in student loan debt, for the privilege of being exposed to this level of stupidity. An ivy league education has become a bigger scam than the pyramid schemes.
