  • Hate Spaces and the Social Justice Warrior

    On college campuses throughout America, social justice has been the prevailing sentiment and social justice warriors have been organizing and shutting down perceived injustices threatening their campuses at a record pace. From New York to California, injustices are fought tooth and nail at top universities, Ivy League schools and junior colleges alike. College students have no tolerance for injustice. Of course, this is one of the biggest deceptions today on college campuses throughout this nation.

    While the American Association of University Professors (AAUP) made an attempt at an even-handed approach to the growing "Sanctuary Campus" movement, there is some evidence that there are campuses going well beyond the letter of the law. "We support the movement for sanctuary campuses," the AAUP averred in a statement published on November 22, 2016. "While colleges and universities must obey the law, administrations must make all efforts to guarantee the privacy of immigrant students and pledge not to grant access to information that might reveal their immigration status unless so ordered by a court of law." "Nor should colleges...

    The piece below was originally published at the advice column I run, Ask a Manager. After it was printed there, it went viral and turned into fodder for barbs about how young people today are overly coddled, immature, and entitled. Some commenters blamed college campuses for teaching students that anything they don't like can be solved with a petition for change--as if this generation was the first to have discovered protesting, and as if agitating for change is inherently a bad thing. My belief, as the advice columnist who answered the original letter, is that this isn't about "young people...
  • Jerry Seinfeld: Politically correct college students 'don't know WTF they're talking about'

    Like Chris Rock and Larry the Cable Guy, Jerry Seinfeld avoids doing shows on college campuses. And while talking with ESPN’s Colin Cowherd on Thursday, the comedian revealed why: College kids today are too politically correct. “I hear that all the time,” Seinfeld said on The Herd with Colin Cowherd. “I don’t play colleges, but I hear a lot of people tell me, ‘Don’t go near colleges. They’re so PC.’” Seinfeld says teens and college-aged kids don’t understand what it means to throw around certain politically-correct terms. “They just want to use these words: ‘That’s racist;’ ‘That’s sexist;’ ‘That’s prejudice,’”...

    WASHINGTON, DC — All this week, September 15-19, 211 Young Americans for Liberty campus chapters will rally thousands of students across the country for “Constitution Week” — in celebration of Constitution Day, September 17.YAL chapters will erect large displays in high-traffic areas on campuses and engage students with “Free Speech Walls,” giant Constitutions, and NSA petition drives. They will distribute tens of thousands of pocket Constitutions, personalized flyers, and sign-up sheets to teach more students about our founding principles and bring more students into the liberty movement. A small sampling of these high profile events expected from YAL chapters this...
  • Unsustainable Green Jobs

    Apparently even college campuses aren’t providing green jobs anymore. A survey by the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (Aashe) “showed that creation of new sustainability positions peaked in 2008, then dropped 31 percent in 2009,” Dave Newport reported in The Chronicle of Higher Education on April 6, 2012. Newport directs the Environmental Center at the University of Colorado at Boulder. That actually might be a better record than the Obama Administration has amassed in its much-touted—at least by administration officials—green jobs program. The Department of Labor, Employment and Training Administration (ETA) found that “ETA and grantees...

    A state senator from the Panhandle has introduced a bill that would allow people who have concealed weapons permits to carry their weapons on campus. Florida law currently prohibits guns on campus in most instances. Sen. Greg Evers' proposal also would allow concealed weapons permit-holders to carry their guns out in the open.

    Even as more local schools are reaching state targets on benchmark tests, nearly three-quarters of Los Angeles Unified schools fall among the state's lowest performing campuses, according to data released today by the California Department of Education. Today's release of the state's base Academic Performance Index, or API, ranks schools based on their statewide test scores and how they perform compared to schools with similar demographics. API scores range from 200 to 1,000 points with the target being 800 points. In the last year, 158 Los Angeles Unified schools reached or exceeded the state's target API score of 800, up...

    Anti-Israel agitation has come to light in Canada following an alleged machete attack on pro-Israel students in Ottawa last week. The students, both well-known for their pro-Israel views, were reportedly assaulted after leaving local lounge in the early hours of the morning on April 5. The alleged assaulters included a large group of anti-Israel agitators, one of whom was wielding a machete. One of the alleged victims, who said he and his friend were subject to derogatory and anti-Semitic slurs during the assault, was a local organizer of B'nai Brith's recent Imagine With Us pro-Israel campus initiative - a movement...

    ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH 04/03/2010 It's tempting to think of college campuses as islands of enlightenment, places where students embrace new ideas, people and cultures without the specter of hate hanging overhead. Tempting. But it's not always the case, as demonstrated by events on campuses in Missouri and across the nation in recent months. There were cotton balls scattered outside the black cultural center at the University of Missouri-Columbia. There have been racial slurs and a threat of lynching at St. Louis University. There was a swastika scrawled on a bathroom wall near a Jewish studies center at the University of...

    On the morning following the shootings at Virginia Tech last April, several Korean students missed class here at Arizona State University. We were up together until early morning going over statistical regression, so there had to be another reason that they were missing out on finals review. It turned out that they were afraid to come to class fearing retaliation from students stricken with grief and anger. While we assured our friends there was absolutely nothing to worry about, today – with two university shootings and 12 states considering allowing concealed weapons on school campuses, that may no longer be...

    Former College Student Opts Not To Graduate Because He Cannot Carry His Gun. just three classes short of graduation, is not going back to Front Range Community College because of its campus rules on guns. "I've carried a gun every day for six years. I have a permit. Everything is legal. They still will not allow me to carry on their campus because it violates their student code of conduct," said Aaron Brown, a former student. Brown was suspended for six months after he was found carrying his gun on the college campus. He has no plans to come back...

    LONDON -- U.K. intelligence officials have just provided a chilling assessment of the terrorist threat Britain faces. The country has become "al Qaeda target No. 1," security sources told me, confirming last week's press reports. Intelligence services now judge Britain's "home grown" terrorists to be organized, trained and controlled either directly from Pakistan or via Pakistani networks in Britain. Until now, intelligence services thought British Islamist terrorists had no hard links to al Qaeda despite sharing its ideology. "Clean skins" in the security jargon, they were believed to have acted alone or in self-constructed cells. This theory was the product...

    The West must change its ways because tolerance could be the death of us, writes Janet Albrechtsen ANY mention of state-funded terrorism tends to evoke images of evil Saudis pouring money into madrassas in Indonesia and Pakistan to train terrorists and sending shiploads of pamphlets on do-it-yourself jihad to mosques in the West. Or a few mad mullahs in Iran and Syria arming Hezbollah terrorists with lethal weapons to strike Israelis. It's all so passe. The phrase needs updating after the arrests of 24 terrorist suspects last week in Britain. As it turns out, the West is doing its bit...

    PIERRE, S.D. - South Dakota's public universities should be required to file annual reports to show how they are ensuring academic freedom and promoting differing points of view on their campuses, a state House Committee decided Tuesday. The Education Committee voted 10-5 to approve a measure that requires the six state universities to file reports to the Legislature on what they are doing to ensure intellectual diversity. The measure's main sponsor, Rep. Phyllis Heineman, R-Sioux Falls, said HB1222 is needed to make sure students are exposed to a diverse range of ideas. Members of the Legislature are invigorated by debate,...
  • The Wisdom of Solomon? The right to bear armies-(military recruiting 1st SCOTUS case for Roberts)

    Should law schools be allowed to block military recruiters from campus? That's one of the first questions John Roberts will decide as a Supreme Court justice, should the Senate confirm him. The case, called Rumsfeld v. Forum for Academic Rights, concerns the constitutionality of the Solomon Act, which mandates that law schools will lose their federal funding if they ban military recruiters. In 2003, a coalition of schools sued. Last year, the Third Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in their favor and declared the Solomon Act unconstitutional. The Supreme Court is scheduled to take up the matter in hearings beginning...

    EN ROUTE TO IRAQ -- My bosses at FOX News have sent me on assignment to the "sandbox," as our troops have taken to calling Iraq. There, I will spend time with some of the most impressive young men and women this country has ever produced. These soldiers, sailors, airmen, Marines and Guardsmen never cease to amaze me. Their dedication, enthusiasm and resilience, even in the unforgiving heat and atmosphere of an Iraqi summer, are second to none. On the day before my departure, The Washington Times carried a front-page photo of an unidentified American soldier cradling a young Iraqi...

    Dan Flynn discusses more than a dozen intellectual morons in his book, including Noam Chomsky, Michel Foucault, Margaret Sanger, and Alfred Kinsey. Of all the figures discussed in Intellectual Morons, which one has had the more pernicious impact on our world and why? My college education seems to have included a reading, at one time or another, of a who’s who of Dan Flynn’s intellectual morons. Whether it was the application of Michel Foucault’s sexual theories to Victorian literature, an exploration of Alfred Kinsey’s findings in psychology, or an all-star lineup of thinkers like Sanger, Friedan, or Du Bois in...
