    Bias Festered 'For Years,' Professor Says BY JACOB GERSHMAN - Staff Reporter of the Sun October 29, 2004A leading scholar of Hebrew literature at Columbia University said yesterday that for years students have complained to him about anti-Israel bias in the classroom.As Columbia University begins to investigate claims from students who say professors routinely promote hatred of Israel, the scholar, Dan Miron, a tenured professor in the Department of Middle East and Asian Languages and Cultures, told The New York Sun that the school is awakening to a long-existing problem."It's been going on for years now," Mr. Miron said....

    After a series of ads in the University of Arizona newspaper railed against left-wing professors, a student allegedly reported Professor David Gibbs to the FBI for being "an anti-American communist who hates America." A series of ads have been running in student newspapers across the country charging that universities are dominated by liberal or left-wing professors. The ads are paid for by well-funded groups like Students for Academic Freedom and the Independent Women's Forum. Some of the ads encourage students to report any so-called anti-American faculty or statements made by professors. And that is apparently what happened to David Gibbs,...

    BRAVE NEW SCHOOLS Teacher to class: 'F--- God' College says professor owes Christian student apology -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Posted: August 26, 2004 1:00 a.m. Eastern © 2004 Does academic freedom allow college professors to offend their students with profanity? The question is coming up in Illinois, as an instructor is under fire for displaying the message "F--- God" to his class. Bruce LeBlanc, shown here in 2002, allegedly used his blackboards for profane message (photo: Moline Dispatch) According to the Moline Dispatch, Bob Stotler, a 30-year-old student at Black Hawk College, filed a complaint after his sociology teacher, Bruce LeBlanc, displayed...

    BreakPoint with Charles Colson ^ | August 13, 2004 | Mark Earley
    Note: This commentary was delivered by Prison Fellowship President Mark Earley. A professor at a well known liberal arts college became infamous for starting each semester by holding up a Bible and asking, “How many of you believe this book is the Word of God?” One or two undergraduates might have sheepishly raised their hands. The professor would then say, “Do you want to know what I think of this book? This is what I think of it”—and he would hurl the Bible out an open window. Even more astonishing, this display took place at a Christian college. Hostility to...

    Monday, Aug. 2, 2004 11:10 a.m. EDT Kerry Press Flack in Talk Radio Meltdown DNC press secretary Tony Welch sounded irked from the get-go yesterday when WABC Radio's Steve Malzberg asked him about John Kerry's exchange with a peacenik protester earlier this year, who trashed U.S. troops in Iraq for "bombing hospitals, bombing mosques and killing hundreds of civilians" - while the candidate listened politely. Kerry's questioner happened to be former assistant dean of New York's City College, Walter Daum. But rather than defend U.S. troops against the outrageous slander, to top Democrat merely told the lefty academic, "I don't...

    Israel resembles Nazi Germany. That's what Prof. Joseph A. Massad teaches at Columbia University "The Jews are not a nation.…The Jewish state is a racist state that does not have a right to exist." One might expect these comments to have been uttered by a neo-Nazi or a militant Islamic leader. Sadly, these words were uttered by an instructor of Middle East studies at one of America's most prestigious universities in the course of delivering a lecture at Oxford University. In title, Joseph A. Massad is an assistant professor of modern Arab politics and intellectual history in the Department of...

  • Idiot on campus? Benjamin Shapiro sees harsh words on Tillman's death due to anti-American profs

    Former Arizona Cardinals football player Pat Tillman was an inspiration for almost all Americans. Even on campus, Tillman's death in Afghanistan caused a good deal of grief, soul-searching and pride in our fighting men and women. But not everyone on campus was pro-Tillman. According to University of Massachusetts graduate student Rene Gonzalez, Tillman was a "pendejo," idiot, who died "in vain." In an opinion piece published in the University of Massachusetts-Amherst Daily Collegian, Gonzalez wrote: "This was a 'G.I. Joe' guy who got what was coming to him. That was not heroism, it was prophetic idiocy. ... He was acting...

    Dartmouth Review ^ | 3/5/04 | Alston B. Ramsay
    “It’s not that very good teaching is not going on in English 5,” English Chair Peter Travis recently told the Daily Dartmouth, “but we’ve not had the sense of mission and vision that we think writing instruction should have at an institution as prestigious as Dartmouth.” On the second point, I’ll happily concur. But Professor Travis would be wise to sit in on one of Shelby Grantham’s English 5 classes before making his first pronouncement. Grantham is more than just a bad teacher. She’s horrific. Prof. Grantham is the subject of a lengthy retrospective on page six of this issue....

    EDITORIAL: Too stupid to teach? UNLV professor says Republican Party now a haven of slope-browed troglodytes Back in 2002, a survey by the American Enterprise Institute found America's colleges and universities to be a virtually monochrome refuge of the political left. More than 80 percent of most schools' employees were found to be registered Democrats, despite the almost even split between registered Republicans and Democrats among the public at large. The AEI report found one consequence of this lack of diversity was that conservative thinkers tend to be isolated and intimidated on American campuses, with the predictable result that they...

He's no longer the Texas hangman. He appears to have become the global hangman."

    EXCERPTS FROM Five, whites are trying their darndest to demonstrate that they too are victims in a society where they dominate. Whites have failed to prove to us that they are not part of the privileged class. They have failed to prove that they have gained so much from subjugation and domination of nonwhites. They have failed to prove to us that they don't have racist, sexist tendencies that just might be part of the very essence of their white skin. They have failed to prove to us that they too have not benefited from affirmative action legislation. They...

    Over the years, Texans have been the butt of many cruel jokes. Opponents of President George W. Bush, who grew up in Midland, Texas, love to lampoon his folksy cowboy language. But no one has been quite as insulting as Dr Larry Sechrest, a university professor in the Texan town of Alpine. Last month, he published a 7,000-word essay entitled "A strange little town in Texas", in a small-circulation magazine based in Washington state. Unfortunately, a couple of subscribers who live in Alpine read his indictment of his 5,000 neighbours, two of whom have responded with death threats. "The secret...

    Why Are Universities Dominated by the Left? By Edward Feser 02/13/2004 The hegemony of the Left over the universities is so overwhelming that not even Leftists deny it. Whether the institution is public or private, a community college or an Ivy League campus, you can with absolute confidence predict that the curriculum will be suffused with themes such as: capitalism is inherently unjust, dehumanizing, and impoverishing; socialism, whatever its practical failures, is motivated by the highest ideals and that its luminaries -- especially Marx -- have much to teach us; globalization hurts the poor of the Third World; natural resources...

    Everyone’s had a professor they know to be extremely liberal or conservative. Some professors simply wear their political beliefs on their sleeves without even knowing it. Usually their political views don’t make their way into the classroom. However, if it happens, it should be done in such a way that would not be construed as an attempt at the political indoctrination of the students in the class. Of course, sometimes those political biases inappropriately make their way into the classroom, as has recently occurred at my school, California University of Pennsylvania, near Pittsburgh. I’m a public relations student at Cal...

    DURHAM -- The Duke Conservative Union wanted a dialogue about what it perceived as an overwhelming prevalence of registered Democrats teaching in the humanities. Instead, the group lit a political firestorm. In the five days since the group bought a $500 full-page ad in the Duke student newspaper -- The Chronicle -- highlighting "massive discrepancies" between the number of registered Republicans and Democrats in several departments, the campus has become embroiled in a spirited debate about political bias both in the classroom and in faculty hiring. The debate has played itself out on the back pages of The Chronicle and...

    I know it is all true. I am a college student and deal with often in my classes. My best friend and I go to two different schools and hear this type of stuff from our teachers almost everyday. It is like they are trying to make all of their students liberal and leftist without giving any fairness to the right views (it is called right for a reason, oh yeah and they are called Jackasses for a reason). This is so innapropriate in a classroom situation. If conservatives were doing this the liberals would have a field day and...

    Government adviser: killing children with defects acceptable NICHOLAS CHRISTIAN A GOVERNMENT adviser on genetics has sparked fury by suggesting it might be acceptable to destroy children with ‘defects’ soon after they are born. John Harris, a member of the Human Genetics Commission, told a meeting at Westminster he did not see any distinction between aborting a fully grown unborn baby at 40 weeks and killing a child after it had been born. Harris, who is a professor of bioethics at Manchester University, would not be drawn on which defects or problems might be used as grounds for ending a baby’s...
