    If faculty cannot bail out on and disparage diversity training, students don't stand a chance: Resistance is futile. "I exhort you not to attend this training," Paul Griffiths, then a professor at the Duke Divinity School urged his colleagues via the campus e-mail. "Don't lay waste your time by doing so." "It'll be, I predict with confidence, intellectually flaccid: there'll be bromides, clichés, and amen-corner rah-rahs in plenty. When (if) it gets beyond that, its illiberal roots and totalitarian tendencies will show. Events of this sort are definitively anti-intellectual. (Re)trainings of intellectuals by bureaucrats and apparatchiks have a long and...

    Sept. 12: The NCAA, citing a commitment to fairness and inclusion, announces it would move seven championship events from the state of North Carolina. That included first- and second-round games for the NCAA men's basketball tournament that were slated for Greensboro, N.C., for March 17-19, 2017. It is in direct response to the state's passing of House Bill 2, also known as the "bathroom bill," which critics say discriminates against the LGBT community.
  • Liberals hurt Duke athletes again

    Duke athletes were attacked when the liberal and soon to be disbarred DA, Mike Nifong, unjustly prosecuted Duke Lacrosse players in the infamous hooker rape case. Now, another disbarred attorney, Barak Hussein Obama set into motion the conditions that propelled the Duke basketball team to lose in the NCAA tournament. Obama wanted to protect confused little boys that don't want to pee in urinals or girls who do. The governor of North Carolina signed into law a bill that the ever PC NCAA protested by moving the 2017 tourney out of Greensboro, North Carolina. So Duke, a 2 seed, played...
  • Is this the worst NCAA tournament loss in Duke history?

    Take your jaw off the floor. We'll wait. The mighty Duke Blue Devils, one week ago crowned ACC tournament champions and discussed as a probable No. 1 seed, were handed a a stunning loss on Sunday night to the feel-good South Carolina Gamecocks, a team that hadn't won an NCAA tournament game since 1973 and had never seen the Sweet 16. The ACC blue blood losing to the SEC also-ran was surprising enough, but even more so given that SC was 7-35 from the floor at halftime with the game playing out just as everyone expected. Then, out of nowhere, the Gamecocks shot 71%...

    Washington Examiner ^ | 12/12/2016 | Michael Barone
    One way to look at the election of Donald Trump is that it is a repudiation of the cult of political correctness that thrives — metastasizes might be a better word — on college and university campuses. One particularly egregious example, the bogus prosecution of Duke University lacrosse players in 2006 and 2007, seems to have had particular reverberations in producing election results this year, a decade later. For a definitive account of the disgraceful behavior of Durham County District Attorney Mike Nifong, Duke President Richard Brodhead and dozens of members of the Duke faculty, see KC Johnson and Stuart...

    You Can Be a Certified Duke Marxist. Think about that.No, this is not The Onion, a joke, nor a smear.James Buchanan “Buck” Duke was an industrialist icon; a man who made a fortune in tobacco and textiles. He was a true capitalist that feared God, inspired faith, and was a titan of industry. He funded several of America’s great educational institutions and was a philanthropist beyond measure, but his endowment is now responsible for a program that will certify the next generation of Marxists.- Let that sink in.According to a recent Duke Chronicle article, “Duke has long been known internationally...

    You know the big stuff already: Donald Trump won the presidency, defeating Hillary Clinton by bursting through her leaky blue firewall.... Meanwhile, here are three lower-profile results that are worth noting: (1) Oregon's Democratic Secretary of State went down to defeat, marking the first GOP victory in a statewide election in 14 years. More significantly, the loser of this race was known to many as the infamous bully who led the charge to fine a Christian-owned bakery $144,000 for declining to provide services to a same-sex wedding... (2) In Colorado, voters absolutely demolished a ballot initiative to create a government-run,...

    Columnist David Brooks is the house "conservative" of the New York Times which means he is currently busy consoling his fellow liberals over Donald Trump's election victory. Brooks, in his column today titled The View From Trump Tower but which could more accurately be labeled "The View From Ivory Tower," describes texting people "off the ledge." Ironically it is Brooks himself who leaps off that ledge at the end of his column due to his extreme Trump Derangement Syndrome.

    There is one type of diversity that university officials are manifestly hostile to: diverse viewpoints critical of the policies which they are pursuing. "I've tried opposing affirmative action and I'm no longer invited to sit on committees," University of Pennsylvania law school professor Amy Wax said at the Cato Institute on September 15, 2016. Anyone who dissents, as a she did, faces a university "monoculture," and risks "marginalization, even ostracism." That universities are wedded to the idea is particularly ironic, Wax noted at the Constitution Day conference, because "Few universities have competitive entry in admissions." They don't reject that many...

    This story is part one in a two-part investigative series. The second part will examine the culture in the Parking and Transportation Services Department and will be published later this week. A parking attendant has alleged that Executive Vice President Tallman Trask, the University’s primary financial and administrative officer, used a racial slur after hitting her with his car. EVP Tallman Trask oversees Duke’s finances and administration. The parking attendant, Shelvia Underwood of Raleigh-based McLaurin Parking and Transportation, claims that Trask hit her with with his vehicle Aug. 30, 2014, before a Duke football game against Elon University, and called...

  • Trump Blames ‘Lousy Earpiece’ for Not Denouncing David Duke

    Donald Trump blamed a “lousy earpiece” for why he claimed he didn’t know who David Duke was during a CNN interview on Sunday. On NBC’s Today show Monday, Trump said he knows who Duke is (a former Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan who will vote for him), but claimed he never met him. Trump also said he only didn’t know the white-supremacist groups that host Jake Tapper asked him about. Nevertheless, Trump refused several opportunities to denounce the racists supporting him. On Sunday night, he tweeted that he disavowed their support.

    Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump disavowed white nationalist and former Ku Klux Klan grand wizard David Duke in a tweet Sunday. "As I stated at the press conference on Friday regarding David Duke- I disavow." Earlier Sunday morning, Trump avoided a question about whether he'd condemn Duke's racism. The GOP front-runner said on CNN's "State of the Union" he didn't know anything about Duke and would need to research his connections before deciding whether he would condemn them. "I have to look at the group. I don't know what group you're talking about," he said. "You wouldn't want me to...
  • Ten Years Later, the Duke Lacrosse Case Still Reverberates

    Next month will be the tenth anniversary of the spring break party that triggered the Duke lacrosse case. That incident probably remains the highest-profile false rape claim in recent U.S. history—rivaled only by the claim against University of Virginia fraternity members leveled, and then retracted, by Rolling Stone. That both of these false accusations occurred on a campus should come as no surprise. A general disinterest in due process for accused students combined with a one-sided intellectual atmosphere on questions related to gender make universities poorly suited to evaluate sexual assault allegations. The lacrosse case, moreover, added race and class...

    According to a columnist for the Duke University student newspaper, America's "obsession with the First Amendment" is really just "an expression of white supremacy." "I am thinking about how an urgent and overdue conversation about racism-on our campus and across our country - has been derailed by a diversionary and duplicitous obsession with the First Amendment," graduate student Bennett Carpenter wrote in university newspaper The Chronicle. "I am thinking about how quickly the conversation has shifted from white supremacy to white fragility - and how this shift is itself an expression of white supremacy." Apparently unaware of the irony of...
