    The Pride Center and LGBTQ+ Multicultural Support Network at Oregon State University posted that they do not want a student veteran group to occupy a student lounge. A letter co-penned by both groups stated that “the communities that our organizations serve are vulnerable to the ideological and practical consequences" of letting the student veteran group in the center. The Pride Center has since deleted the post.

  • Hoax: The stupidity of academic journals says a lot about what's taught at colleges today.

    If you are an American college professor, the way you get a raise or tenure is by getting papers published in "academic journals." The stupidity of these journals says a lot about what's taught at colleges today. Recently, three people sent in intentionally ridiculous "research" to prominent journals of women studies, gender studies, race studies, sexuality studies, obesity studies and queer studies. "The scholarship in these disciplines is utterly corrupted," says Dr. Peter Boghossian of Portland State University. "They have placed an agenda before the truth." To show that, hoaxer and mathematician James Lindsay says, "We rewrote a section of...

    According to a recently published investigative report, leftist interest groups are secretly playing a major role at many American Universities, often funded in part by mandatory student fees. According to a report by the Capital Research Center, “public interest research groups” are playing a silent yet major role at many major American universities. The report makes the case that these interest groups use universities and their students to advance a progressive partisan agenda. Public interest research groups often raise funds via dishonest or deceitful methods. For example, many groups are funded by mandatory student fees. According to the report, the...
  • Academic Stopped From Researching ‘Sex-Change Regret’ Says Fear, . . .

    An academic has challenged a decision by Bath Spa University to refuse him permission to research trans regret. Psychotherapist James Caspian wanted to study people who had undergone “sex-change” operations only to later regret their decision and seek to reverse their transition. His research proposal was rejected by the university for being “politically incorrect.” Speaking to The Sunday Telegraph, he said, “I was shocked, but immediately knew I was in the eye of a storm.” Caspian believes that his case demonstrates that the fear and sensitivity surrounding trans issues is stifling public debate and preventing them from being “critically examined.”

    Kaitlin Bennett went undercover at UCLA as Jenna Talia to ask students to sign a petition to throw conservatives into involuntary re-education camps. Not only were the students she approached ecstatic to sign it, but one member of UCLA’s student government encouraged her to change the language to “diversity” and “sensitivity training” to hide their real intentions so the administration would approve it.

    Next week the University of California, San Diego’s prestigious Scripps Institution of Oceanography is the location for an intriguing academic conference. It’s devoted to the microorganisms that exist on and within all of us. But participation by a much larger type of organism will be significantly restricted. The microbiome describes the community of tiny living things that exist on a human body, for example, while the metabolome describes chemicals found in a particular biological sample, such as blood. The UC San Diego website informs: "During the first day of this event, leading researchers will present on the emerging science of...

    A Turning Point USA activist was brutally assaulted while recruiting at UC Berkeley. Charlie Kirk of Turning Point USA posted a shocking video revealing a “leftist thug” cursing at one of their recruiters, then punching the recruiter in the face and walking away. The short video shows a man dressed in a black t shirt and jeans physically assaulting the Turning Point activist, pushing him, knocking his baseball cap off his head, cursing at him repeatedly, and eventually punching him in the face before angrily storming away from the scene. “While recruiting for our @TPUSA Group at UC Berkeley a...

    Teacher claims: "This institutionalizes "white fragility". A code of ethics for public school teachers that was recently introduced in the Maine Legislature is making headlines, and will serve as an important test-case for efforts to prohibit indoctrination in our nation’s schools. But local educators are responding with hysteria to this commonsense education reform proposal, even as its legislative sponsor responds with calm and logic. The bill, LD-589, was introduced by Rep. Larry Lockman and co-sponsored by several of his colleagues in the state legislature. It establishes a code of ethics for professional conduct that must be observed by public school...

    A well-funded and subversive leftist movement of teachers in the United States threatens to tilt the political balance nationwide in the direction of Democrats across the country as Republicans barely hang on in key states that they need to hold for President Donald Trump to win re-election and for Republicans to have a shot at retaking the House and holding onto their Senate majority. This teachers union effort, called #RedforEd, has its roots in the very same socialism that President Trump vowed in his 2019 State of the Union address to stop, and it began in its current form in...

    Graduating from Yale as a conservative reminded me of those scenes in films where someone speeds away from an explosion and barely avoids certain death. But no matter how bad it seemed in New Haven a few years ago, it just keeps getting worse. “I’m watching you, white boy.” That’s one of the final lines in a recent racially charged op-ed by Isis Davis-Marks published in the Yale Daily News. Davis-Marks calls for students to try to ruin the reputations of white male Yalies by collecting political opposition research at college parties and spreading unsubstantiated gossip and allegations as widely...

    The Federalist ^ | February 11, 2019 | Nicole Russell
    Court documents revealed the public university kept a ‘watch list’ of student groups on probation. All of the groups on the list were religious. On Wednesday, a federal court ruled that the University of Iowa had illegally targeted religious groups for requiring their leaders to follow their faith. As such, Business Leaders in Christ (BLC), a Christian student group on the University of Iowa’s campus, secured a permanent place on campus. At the hearing February 1, it was clear the university had not only kicked BLC off campus because of their expression of faith, but had targeted and blacklisted 31...

    The independent student newspaper at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri, published an op-ed in which the student author slammed conservative ideas, saying they "are not equal to liberal and left ideas." The piece, titled "It's OK that conservatives don't feel welcome," appeared in the "Student Life" paper. The op-ed's author explained that conservative ideas don't "deserve equal consideration to that afforded liberal and left ideas." "There is no legitimate argument for supporting Donald Trump and his allies, at least not one that holds up in any academic community worth its salt," the author wrote. "But we shouldn’t create an...

    Andrew Zimmerman, a social studies teacher and self-described libertarian, and Jeanné Collins, a superintendent and big fan of Sen. Bernie Sanders, the Vermont independent, aren't anyone's idea of political soul mates. But both educators agree on one thing: It isn't their role to talk about their own political beliefs at school, particularly in an increasingly polarized climate. "I usually don't tell my students my viewpoints," said Zimmerman, a high school teacher in Uhrichsville, Ohio, in a county that voted overwhelmingly for Republican Donald Trump in last year's presidential election. "It's my job to show as many different perspectives as possible."...

    SOUTH BEND, Ind. — The University of Notre Dame will cover murals in a campus building that depict Christopher Columbus in America, the school's president said, following criticism that the images depict Native Americans in stereotypical submissive poses before white European explorers. The 12 murals created in the 1880s by Luis Gregori were intended to encourage immigrants who had come to the U.S. during a period of anti-Catholic sentiment. But they conceal another side of Columbus: the exploitation and repression of Native Americans, said the Rev. John Jenkins, president of Notre Dame...

    A University of Georgia (UGA) teaching assistant wrote Wednesday on Facebook that “some white people may have to die for black communities to be made whole in this struggle to advance to freedom." He added that to suggest otherwise is “ahistorical and dangerously naive.” UGA philosophy TA Irami Osei-Frimpong made the comment during a conversation on the Overheard at UGA Facebook page. The comment has since been deleted. Osei-Frimpong claimed in May 2017 that Facebooksuspended him for quoting from an article which detailed how Texas A&M professor Tommy Curry had said “in order to be equal, in order to be...

    A professor who fooled prestigious journals into running absurd hoax papers, as a test of their bias, says he may now lose his job because of his actions. Peter Boghossian was one of three people who collaborated last year to test the standards of various university disciplines, submitting papers loaded with left-wing buzzwords to journals in fields like feminism, race studies, queer studies, and cultural studies. Many prestigious journals fell for their absurd hoax papers. A leading feminist journal published a section of Adolf Hitler’s Mein Kampf that had simply been re-written with fashionable buzzwords. Another journal published a paper...

    Last October I wrote about the trio of academics, Helen Pluckrose, James A. Lindsay and Peter Boghossian, who submitted bogus papers to supposedly serious journals and discovered that a number of them were not only accepted but praised. Now one of the professors who engaged in that attempt to point out the deficiencies in contemporary scholarship fears he is in danger of losing his job. Peter Boghossian, an associate professor of philosophy at Portland State University, says the university is considering accusing him of “fabricating data” in the papers which were so obviously absurd they bordered on satire.
