    Professors at an upstate New York university will “take a knee” tomorrow in a show of solidarity with protesters across the country. “Scores of Cornell faculty members” will get down on one knee on the school’s Arts Quad on Wednesday in order to “bring awareness to issues including police violence against black Americans,” according to The Cornell Daily Sun. The organizers of the event “hope [they] will be joined by students and members of the Ithaca community.”

    Academics are upset that they don’t get as many chances as they would like to contribute to U. S. foreign policy. Maybe that's a good thing. On the one hand, most of them opposed the Iraq War, at least after the fact, Benjamin H. Friedman and Justin Logan show in an essay which appeared in the Winter 2016 issue of Strategic Studies Quarterly. On the other, "A 2004-2005 survey of international relations scholars asked, 'Do you think that the United States should increase its spending on national defense, keep it about the same, or cut it back?' Just short of...
  • University of Illinois Stands Firm on Not Hiring Professor Over Anti-Israel Tweets

    The University of Illinois board of trustees on Thursday affirmed its refusal to hire a professor who posted a series of harsh anti-Israel tweets this summer. The professor says the act is part of an effort by “wealthy and well organized groups to attack pro-Palestinian students and faculty.” The case has drawn wide attention on college campuses because it raises the issue of the suppression of academic freedom around the Israeli-Palestinian conflict—a hot-button topic at universities across the country. Steven Salaita, a Palestinian-American professor with an expertise in indigenous studies, accepted a tenure-track position last year to start working in...
  • Loving and Hating America

    As I've documented in the past, many leftist teachers teach our youngsters to hate our country. For example, University of Hawaii Professor Haunani-Kay Trask counseled her students, "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." Some universities hire former terrorists to teach and indoctrinate students. Kathy Boudin, former Weather Underground member and convicted murderer, is on the Columbia University School of Social Work's faculty. Her Weather Underground comrade William Ayers teaches at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Bernardine Dohrn, his wife, is...
  • 20 Of the Most Obnoxious Quotes From College Professors

    09/21/2013 4:21:04 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 48 replies ^ | September 21, 2013 | John Hawkins
    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...
  • Obama Should End Up On Mount Rushmore Say 1/3 Of George Washington Profs Surveyed (Major Barf!)

    The Daily Caller ^ | 5/27/2013 11:55:55 AM | Eric Owens
    According to a survey of George Washington University professors, some 30 percent generally endorse the eventual addition of President Barack Obama’s face to the Mount Rushmore National Memorial. The survey, conducted and reported by The College Fix, is hampered by an extremely limited sample size. Nonetheless, the results are fascinating. Of the 10 history and political science profs queried, three suggested that Obama may eventually be added to the huge sculpture of four enormous presidential heads carved into the granite face of a mountain in the Black Hills of South Dakota.
  • The Problem in Washington Isn’t the Constitution

    It’s easy to pity Kremlinologists. These are people who spent years, even decades, studying the Soviet Union. Their job was to explain why that country did the things it did, even though those actions so often seemed counterproductive. Suddenly, though, the USSR dissolved and the Kremlinologists were out of work. Louis Michael Seidman hopes to join them on the unemployment lines. He’s a “professor of constitutional law” at Georgetown University. That means students pay more than $60,000 per year to hear him lecture. Nonetheless, Seidman apparently wants to end his cushy teaching gig. “Let’s Give Up on the Constitution”...

    <p>Some opinions only get attention because they come from people with advanced degrees who make their living on the taxpayer dime. That’s certainly the case for Hugo Schwyzer, a history and gender studies professor at Pasadena City College.</p> <p>He has a history of blaming white men for most of the mass killings that take place in the United States. Friday’s tragic shootings in Newtown, Connecticut gave him a great opportunity to spout his nonsense once again.</p>
  • Ethnocentric Studies

    08/17/2012 6:54:02 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 10 replies ^ | August 17, 2012 | Mike Adams
    thnocentrism is under-rated. Most college students are exposed to the concept only if they take a course in Introductory Sociology or if they should chose to major in sociology. Even then, the concept of ethnocentrism is presented as an evil to be extinguished by fostering the value of anti-ethnocentrism. For those who are not well-versed in the language of sociology, ethnocentrism refers to the tendency to judge other cultures by the standards of one’s own culture. Since this is a natural human tendency, the task of fostering anti-ethnocentrism is difficult, to say the least. But it is also self-defeating. Technically...
  • Leftist California Professors "Corrupt" Higher Education

    "I don't know any polite way of putting this -- but he's lying," said professor John Ellis, president of the National Association of Scholars' California division. Ellis was reacting to a critic's characterization of the NAS's damning report, "A Crisis of Competence: The Corrupting Effect of Political Activism in the University of California." California taxpayers spend $2.8 billion to educate the more than 230,000 students at the 10 campuses that comprise the UC system. But the report says the UC system does not help students learn how to think, but rather teaches them what to think. And what they "learn"...

    Dear Bill (Ayers): I try not to use the word “jack***” too often. Whenever I start writing about you, however, that word just seems to fit into every sentence – sort of like Selah fits into a Davidic Psalm. In fact, found myself using a little profanity when I heard about your recent remarks at an occupy Wall Street gathering in New York City. Here they are in their unedited stupidity: “We are living in a militarized society. That, that, it's clear what the message is from power. The message is that Occupy represents violence, and marginalization and insanity, when...
  • For the Love of Marx

    There are more Marxists teaching in Sociology Departments in America than living in the former Soviet Union. These sociologists hold themselves out as scientists despite the fact that they fail consistently in their efforts to predict the future. In fact, most of them lack the competence to accurately predict the past. Among the least competent and most intellectually dishonest is Gary L. Faulkner, Professor Emeritus from the University of North Carolina. Faulkner recently claimed that Marx predicted the events we are seeing in the Occupy Wall Street movement. He also claimed that events from the 20th Century bolster the...

    The major difference between Hitler and the Communist genocidal murderers –Stalin, Mao and Pol Pot –was what groups they chose for extermination. For Hitler, first Jews and ultimately Slavs and other "non-Aryans" were declared the enemy and unworthy of life. For the Communists, the rich –the bourgeoisie, landowners and capitalists –were labeled the enemy and regarded as unworthy of life. Hitler mass-murdered on the basis of race, the Communists on the basis of class. Because the Holocaust was unique in its industrialization of death and in its targeting of every Jew, including babies, for death, the post-World War II world...

    Weekly Standard ^ | May 30, 2011 | DAVID RUBINSTEIN
    After 34 years of teaching sociology at the University of Illinois at Chicago, I recently retired at age 64 at 80 percent of my pay for life. This calculation was based on a salary spiked by summer teaching, and since I no longer pay into the retirement fund, I now receive significantly more than when I “worked.” But that’s not all: There’s a generous health insurance plan, a guaranteed 3 percent annual cost of living increase, and a few other perquisites. Having overinvested in my retirement annuity, I received a fat refund and—when it rains, it pours—another for unused sick...

I hand carried this to the FBI. The following is in it's entirety and uncut. Dear Tom: I don't know how to say this ... Deep down, I have always trusted and respected you, and that's why I am...

    Why did President Bush order 250,000 young Americans into the deadly peril of war when it really wasn't necessary? Why did he unleash hundreds of high-tech U.S. missiles (costing taxpayers $500,000 each) on Baghdad (population 5 million, half of them children) when it really wasn't necessary? If Iraq has secret stashes of horror weapons, as Bush contends, U.N. inspectors could have spent years combing the nation for them. If any forbidden materials were found, world tribunals could have prosecuted dictator Saddam Hussein. But Bush wouldn't let inspections continue. He wouldn't listen to American moderates or world leaders. Instead, he brushed...
