  • Student Newspaper of Hillary Clinton’s Alma Mater Openly Threatens Those Who ‘Refuse to Adapt [tr]

    Hey parents, look at what your annual $63,916 tuition check is paying for! An editorial from Wellesley College’s student newspaper put out a call to arms on Wednesday against anyone who engages in alleged “racist” behavior. Ironically enough, the piece starts out responding to what the author sees as unfair allegations that Wellesley students and professors foster “an environment where free speech is not allowed or is a violated right. Many outside sources have painted us as a bunch of hot house flowers who cannot exist in the real world.”

    FIRE ^ | 21 March 2017 | Alex Morey and Samantha Harris
    In an email to fellow faculty yesterday afternoon, a committee of Wellesley College professors made several startling recommendations about how they think future campus speakers should be chosen. If implemented, the proposals by the faculty Commission for Ethnicity, Race, and Equity would have a profound impact on the quality and quantity of voices Wellesley students would be permitted to hear. FIRE has obtained the email, sent by one of the signatories to a faculty listserv, and republished it in full below. While paying lip service to free speech, the email is remarkable in its contempt for free and open dialogue...

    A group of Wellesley College professors recently sent a campus-wide email arguing that bringing controversial speakers to campus can cause grave harm to students. The full letter, which was obtained and published by the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE), was written by six professors who stand on the Wellesley Commission for Race, Ethnicity, and Equity.
  • Two College Students Under Investigation Over Trump Celebration Victory Lap

    Two Babson College students are reportedly in trouble after their idea of Donald Trump victory celebration was too much for some to handle. According to a Boston Globe report, the two fraternity brothers placed a large Trump flag in the back of a pickup truck and drove through the streets of nearby Wellesley College, a women’s liberal arts college that also happens to be Hillary Clinton’s alma mater. A brief video of the alleged incident was posted to Facebook on Thursday. The incident was upsetting to some on the Wellesley campus and reports indicate police were called to put an...

    Before reading Hillary Rodham's assessment of the old radical from Chicago — Alinsky's “compelling personality,” “his exceptional charm,” and the limitations of his “anachronistic” tactics — it’s important to understand how the document was sealed... ... Just as conservative authors have speculated, it was the Clintons who asked Wellesley in 1993 to hide Hillary Rodham's senior thesis from the first generation of Clinton biographers, according to her thesis adviser and friend, professor Alan H. Schechter, who describes taking the call from the White House. Wellesley's president, Nannerl Overholser Keohane, approved a broad rule with a specific application: The senior thesis...

    National Review Online ^ | 10/15/14 | Katherine Timpf
    A student who was born female felt perfectly comfortable identifying as a man at Wellesley College — until people said he shouldn’t be class diversity officer because he is now a white male. Timothy Boatwright was born a girl, and checked off the “female” box when applying to the Massachusetts all-women’s school, according to an article in the New York Times. But when he got there, he introduced himself as a “masculine-of-center genderqueer” person named “Timothy” (the name he picked for himself) and asked them to use male pronouns when referring to him. And, by all accounts, Boatwright felt welcome...

    New York Times ^ | October 15, 2014 | RUTH PADAWER
    Hundreds of young women streamed into Wellesley College on the last Monday of August, many of them trailed by parents lugging suitcases and bins filled with folded towels, decorative pillows and Costco-size jugs of laundry detergent. The banner by the campus entranceway welcoming the Class of 2018 waved in the breeze, as if beckoning the newcomers to discover all that awaited them. All around the campus stood buildings named after women: the Margaret Clapp library, the Betsy Wood Knapp media and technology center, dorms, labs, academic halls, even the parking garage. The message that anything is possible for women was...

    The New York Post ^ | 5-23-14 | Bob Fredericks
    It was reading, writing and religious brainwashing at this top Connecticut high school. Staffers at Avon High indoctrinated three once-happy girls into a death-obsessed religious cult that had them speaking in tongues and acting like zombies, a federal civil rights lawsuit filed by their parents charges. Three Spanish teachers and a guidance counselor “taught students to believe in superstition, magic and a non-scientific, anti-intellectual world view,” the suit says. “They lost their humor and their empathy. They began speaking in a bizarre new language. They became unable to think critically or independently. They became dependent on the school teachers and...

    Backdrop on the above (click to enlarge) from the Boston Globe, February 5: A realistic-looking statue of a man sleepwalking in his underwear near the center of Wellesley College has created a stir among the women on campus, especially as more than 100 students at the all-women’s college signed a petition asking administrators to remove it. The statue, called Sleepwalker, is part of an art exhibit featuring sculptor Tony Matelli…. “[T]his highly lifelike sculpture has, within just a few hours of its outdoor installation, become a source of apprehension, fear, and triggering thoughts regarding sexual assault for many members of...

    300 students have signed a petition to have the creepy, yet lifelike statue removed. In part, the petition reads; "This highly realistic sculpture has, within just a few hours of its outdoor installation, become a source of apprehension, fear, and triggering thoughts regarding sexual assault for many members of our campus community. While it may appear humorous, or thought-provoking to some, it has already become a source of undue stress for many Wellesley College students, the majority of whom live, study, and work in this space." The Boston Globe reports the piece is called "Sleepwalker," it was put up to...

Because she considers that to be a more fulfilling task, she has asked to be excused. ``In her absence, we have invited Chicago columnist Mike Royko to address you. Unlike Mrs. Bush, Mr. Royko has never been a housewife or mother. And he has a working career.

    “REMEMBER, THE REASON WE’RE GOING TO THE MOSQUE IS TO CONTINUE OUR LEARNING,” Jonathan Rabinowitz tells his sixth-grade social studies students. Dressed in a button-down shirt and khakis, the lanky 38-year-old teacher stands in the aisle of a school bus idling behind Wellesley Middle School. He holds up a hand to quell chatter and giggles from the 11- and 12-year-olds. “I want to be proud of your behavior. Make us proud in how you ask questions.” Katie Pyzowski, her hair pulled back in a headband, sits quietly in a window seat as the din of her classmates resumes. Just a...

She also has the same address she had in high school and the same bedroom in her parents’ Los Angeles home. Not to mention $40,000 in student loan debt, $2,000 in credit card bills and $10,000 left to pay on her red 2008 Chrysler PT Cruiser. And this is what she worries about: winning the lottery. “I’ll just spend it all and have no idea where it went,” said the 25-year-old graduate of Wellesley College. That would be a...

    Who cares if Wellesley public school middle students were taken on a field trip to a Boston mosque, supposedly to study mosque architecture, and the boys wound up prostrate on the floor, worshipping Allah? It was good for them, because they learned to relax! So just stop worrying about the Constitution, already. Islamic worship can be meditative. Try it sometime. So says a self-described "atheist leader of a church youth group," whose letter to the Boston Globe is today's winner of the Grand Prize Dhimmi Award! Congratulations for leading the way in cheerful submission to our new Islamic overlords. Here's...

    This shocking video was taken by the mother of one of the public school students in Wellesley, Massachusetts taken on a field trip to a local mosque. The students were taught to pray to Allah according to Islamic religious customary. Even more outrageous than that is the fact that the mosque has clear ties to terrorists, anti-Semitic groups and domestic violence.

    Shocking video was released today by Americans for Peace and Tolerance: [video] The video was taken inside the Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center - Boston's controversial Saudi-funded mega-mosque - during a Wellesley Middle School social studies trip to the mosque, ostensibly taken to learn about the history of Islam first-hand. Yet the video reveals that the students are being blatantly mis-educated about Islam. A mosque spokesperson is seen teaching the children that in Mohammed's 7th century Arabia women were allowed to vote, while in America women only gained that right a hundred years ago. This seems to be an...
