  • The Ferocious Religious Faith of the Campus Social-Justice Warrior

    National Review ^ | 11/23/15 | David French
    The campus culture war is a religious war, a so-far largely peaceful counterpart to the violent purges and revolutions of jihad. One faith has been expunged, relegated to the margins of the academy, and now another fills the vacuum. Out with the Christianity that spawned American higher education, in with a ferocious new faith — a social-justice progressivism unrestrained by humility and consumed with righteous zeal. Contemporary Americans — educated in the kind of revisionist history that dominates our educational system from top to bottom — forget that higher education was initially a thoroughly Christian enterprise, in keeping with the...

    If people fail to understand the concept of Big Brother Government and the Welfare State, forgetting patriotism, cultural heritage, and history, all freedoms will vanish. The chickens of intolerance and communist social justice have come home to roost on the American campus. Decades of Marxist indoctrination by the vaunted communist academia are finally paying off—our cultural heritage is replaced by cultural Marxism and primitive cultures that are deemed superior to ours and worshipped. Academia has been blotting out the past and revising history for a while but with increased vengeance since Jimmy Carter founded the U.S. Department of Education on...

    The Cherokee Nation is denouncing scholar-activist Andrea Smith for falsely claiming to be a member of the tribe. Beyond untrue, the ethnic fraud is a painful reminder of their past. I have always been, and will always be Cherokee. This is University of California, Riverside professor Andrea Smiths official response to recent allegations that she is not Cherokee, an identity that she has claimed throughout her decades-long career as a prominent figure in Native American scholarship and activism. In a blog post on Thursday night, Smith maintained that she is Cherokee, that she has consistently identified [herself] based on what...

    With the current unrest taking place at the University of Missouri and threatening to spread nationwide, one has to wonder if this situation, just as all the earlier unrest in Ferguson, is simply another national crisis being choreographed and coordinated right out of the White House. More specifically perhaps right out of the White House office of the Assistant to the President for Public Engagement and Intergovernmental Affairs. An interesting title for Barack Obama's most trusted and closest adviser and 'Social Justice Czar', Valerie Jarrett. With Jarrett's family history of committed Marxists and her long close relationship with Barack and...

This. You can’t help but feel badly for Keely Mullen. I know, she’s asking for it by advocating such insanity and you’ve got to be ready to rumble when you go into the public square.

    The Daily Tarheel, the University of North Carolina's newspaper, declared yesterday that calling America "great" is actually racist. According to the paper, "the Democratic Party has been selling "America is Already Great" merchandise on it's website." This is based off of Donald Trump's "Make America Great Again" hat. The Daily Tarheel has a problem with such merchandise. According to the paper, "this is problematic because it implies that over two centuries of systemic racism and imperialism are "great."" "Come on Dems," the paper reads, "you're supposedly liberal." Another problem that UNC had yesterday? "Racist dogs."

    The Justice Department will release some 6,000 inmates from federal prisons beginning at the end of the month as part of new sentencing guidelines for drug crimes established last year, a federal law enforcement official confirmed Tuesday to Fox News. The new drug sentencing guidelines from U.S. Sentencing Commission, which are intended to reduce penalties on certain nonviolent drug offenders, also applies to any future offenders. The U.S. Sentencing Commission decided in July 2014 that close to 50,000 federal inmates locked up on drug charges would be eligible for reduced sentences. The new sentencing guidelines took effect on Nov. 1,...

Bush said, When President Obama says that for too long weve been blind to the way past injustices continue to shape the present, he is speaking the truth. But we should be just as candid about our failures in addressing injustices of the more recent origin. In our cities weve got so many people that have never known anything but poverty is.

    The Supreme Court has just agreed to reconsider the constitutionality of racial preferences in university admissions (although the advocates of these preferences prefer the seemingly more uplifting term affirmative action.) It is long past time that the Supreme Court declared this insidious and counterproductive policy unconstitutional for public universities and colleges, and hopefully private institutions will decide that it is incumbent upon them to also stop basing admissions decisions on race, gender or sexual preference. The idea of granting preferences based on race, gender or sexual orientation is so offensive and so un-American that its proponents have had to...

Over at the heady and increasingly influential Jacobin, Connor Kilpatrick condemns the idea of privilege-checking as a deviation from issues of real power: Right now Americans are inundated with a variety of liberal politics that try to...

    "...............Though I did not teach at the U of I when this survey was conducted, Im pretty sure that the reactions of these offended students is accurate for the simple reason that many blacks and Hispanics are in over their heads. Beginning in 1975 I regularly taught classes with affirmative action blacks (the university at that time identified them) and their academic deficiencies were obvious (but not true for Asians). Their classroom comments were often uninformed and thus treated with disdain judged by the facial reactions of their smarter classmates. Their grades were also often dismal.Now, how is all this...

    Republican presidential candidate Rand Paul will host a meeting with members of the Congressional Black Caucus next week to discuss criminal justice reform. The libertarian-leaning senator from Kentucky has long been an outspoken advocate for changing how the American criminal system prosecutes and sentences. Now hes teaming up with Rep. Bobby Scott (D-Va.), and other black lawmakers, to craft a strategy for advancing legislation as law enforcement issues have taken center stage following the death of several unarmed black men at the hands of police. Not only is Senator Paul the [S]enate co-sponsor of the Justice Safety Valve Act, which...

    ...Mr. Greenberg teaches in Seattle and writes for Everyday Feminism. In an article published yesterday, titled Looking for Proof of Male Privilege in Your Daily Life? Here Are 7 Undeniable Examples, he tackles the concept of male privilege. At the very beginning of the article, Mr. Greenberg includes a warning, writing, This article is written from a White, cisgender, straight males perspective in other words, from my perspective. Throughout, I discuss primarily experiences and research involving cisgender men and women, but I must acknowledge the limitations of such a perspective. Greenberg then told a short story that he said...

    Why would useful idiots riot to turn our country into a third world basket of lawlessness, corruption, and racial hatred egged on by professional agitators who make the empty promise of non-existent communist social justice? People ask all the time what will it take to return our Constitutional Republic to its previous glory, away from the century-old destructive road to socialism and one world government global communism? The answer is obviously complex, as there are many nefarious plans and forces at play, seemingly unrelated, all merging at some place in time when the point of no return will be reached....

    The Baltimore riots have captured Americas attention this week. Buildings have burned, people have been injured, reporters have been robbed, and there was even a failed attempt at setting off an IED. Yes, seriously. There will be lessons learned from the events stemming from the terrible and tragic death of Freddie Gray while in police custody, and changes will be made in Baltimore at many levels. One hopes some of these changes will help the community and the police find common ground again. One expects from government, as one does, that there will be a lot of unnecessary gesture-making and...

    TORONTO, April 24, 2015 -- A lesbian teacher married to another woman revealed at a pro-gay teachers conference earlier this month how she teaches grade 4-5 students to accept homosexuality through what she called social justice math. Alicia Gunn, an elementary public school teacher in Mississauga, Ontario, told attendees at the April 10 conference in Torontos City Hall that injecting LGBTQ issues into the classroom, especially in math, helps students as young as nine disrupt the single story that many of our kids have about LGBTQ families. When asked by one of the workshop attendees if she first asks parents...

    History often repeats itself, and if you have lived two lives, as I have done, you have a good chance of seeing the reenactment with your own eyes. Liberation theology, of which not much has been heard for two decades, is back in the news. But what is not being mentioned is its origins. It was not invented by Latin American Catholics. It was developed by the KGB. The man who is now the head of the Russian Orthodox Church, Patriarch Kirill, secretly worked for the KGB under the code name Mikhailov and spent four decades promoting liberation theology, which...

    As a first year, I came into the University knowing I was passionate about social justice, but I did not necessarily have the vocabulary and resources to articulate my beliefs. I knew that there were practices in place that exploit marginalized people economically, but I did not know that the driving force behind this was called unregulated capitalism. I knew that there was a difference between the way half of my family lived versus the other half, but I did not know the driving force behind these differences was due to institutionalized racism. I knew that there were more than...

    Liiberty lovers, wake up and get serious about resisting the left-wingers, cultural marxists, social justice warriors Left-wingers and progressives in America are becoming insufferable, are they not? Its quite apparent that they have no desire to live and let live, but want to force their delusions off onto everyone else. You will live, think, and do as the Left tells you, whether you like it or not. Even in the pettiest of ways, they cant help themselves. Take, for example, this story coming out of the University of Oregon. To summarize for the reader, a student named Elle Mallon, who...

    Talk about blaming the victims! Outrage is growing over a Kentucky judge who let a home invader who robbed a family at gunpoint off with probation after a openly criticizing the victims for letting their child be afraid of black men because of the crime. Judge Olu Stevens of the Jefferson Circuit Court appeared even more offended by the victim impact statements offered by the family who was robbed than he was by the fact that a crime had been committed at all.

    A resident advisor (RA) at Marshall University in West Virginia has placed a poster in a freshman dorm that attacks heterosexual Christian students by defining them as privileged. Senior RA Jessie Swiger hung her poster in Freshman North, a co-ed dorm. Campus Reform reported the story and presents screenshots of the poster, as well as Swigers Facebook post defending her poster and a tweet in which Swiger justifies, Its not shaming. Its educating. Privilege exists as a result of racism, sexism, ablism, & classism engrained in society. The poster itself, which is handwritten, equates privilege as not being asked how...
