Check out this video of “Black Lives Matter” protesters at Dartmouth College, harassing students who are trying to study in the school’s library. And keep in mind that this in an Ivy League school – a supposed pinnacle of academia, intellectualism, and maturity:
Victor Davis Hanson recently raised an excellent point when he wrote:
One common denominator characterizes almost all unrest on college campuses: the demands to create more “-studies” courses (black, Latino, feminist, gay, etc.) and thus to hire more -studies professors.
So far there are few demands to make the physics department more diverse or to hire more engineering professors.
Here’s my take on this:
1) The black students who major in STEM subjects are too busy studying in the library, and don’t have the time, or the desire, to harass the other students who are studying in the library.
2) The students of all races who harass the students who are studying in the library, are themselves too lazy and incompetent to major in STEM subjects.
This recent New York Times article talks about a black student at Amherst College whom the New York Times claims is “unprepared academically” for the particular college that she is attending.
So I’m trying to think of all the reasons why someone who is “unprepared academically” for this particular college would get admitted to this particular college. Here are the reasons that I can think of:
1) Their parents made a big donation to the college.
2) They were admitted for their athletic ability.
3) They were admitted as a result of affirmative action.
If anyone here can think of any other reason, please post it in the comment section.
Anyway, it’s that third reason that I’m interested in for this discussion.
Without specifically mentioning affirmative action, the New York Times article makes a good case against affirmative action.
The student in question even says “I always feel like I need to prove to other people that I do belong here.”
I would respond to that by saying that anyone who is “unprepared academically” for this particular college does in fact not “belong” at this particular college.
Please note that no one said this student was “unprepared academically” for college in general. Instead, this student is “unprepared academically” for this particular college.
But there are thousands of other colleges in the U.S.
If affirmative action did not exist, then instead of getting admitted to this particular college, this student would have been admitted to a different college – one for which she was “prepared academically” instead of one for which she was “unprepared academically.”
Attending a college that is too difficult, is far worse than attending a college that matches your abilities. Affirmative action is causing terrible harm to these students. Colleges should get rid of affirmative action, so that each student will be matched up with a college that matches his or her own abilities.
Here is the relevant text from the New York Times article:
One young woman said she went to sleep at night wishing she would not wake up. Imani Marshall, a senior pre-med student from Chicago, who is black, felt a shudder of recognition and started to cry.
Ms. Marshall, who went to a selective public school in Chicago and came to Amherst on full financial aid, said she had felt unprepared academically and socially for Amherst. Yet she felt that by asking for help, she would undermine not just her own standing but that of her entire race.
“I feel like an impostor,” Ms. Marshall said the other day over lunch at the central dining hall. “I close myself off a lot of times from help. I always feel like I need to prove to other people that I do belong here.”
Wikipedia says of Muhammad, the Prophet of Islam:
Traditional sources dictate Aisha was six or seven years old when betrothed to Muhammad, with the marriage not being consummated until she had reached puberty at the age of nine or ten years old.
Wikipedia also says:
The majority of traditional hadith sources state that Aisha was married to Muhammad at the age of six or seven, but she stayed in her parents’ home until the age of nine, or ten according to Ibn Hisham, when the marriage was consummated with Muhammad, then 53, in Medina.
So, according to most scholars of the Islamic religion, when Muhammad, upon whom the religion is based, was 53, he raped a girl who was, at most, 10 years old.
Here’s a video about this subject. As a child, the female speaker in the video, against her will, was raised as a Muslim.
Today, as an adult, she chooses to be non-Muslim.
She says that anyone who knowingly chooses to honor a child molester is evil. I agree with her.
Although she doesn’t specifically say so, I think, in my opinion, her demeanor suggests that when she herself was a child, she was raped by someone who honored Muhammad. In the video as an adult, when she talks about how Muhammad was a child molester, she seems nervous and terrified, as if she is suffering from post traumatic stress syndrome. I sincerely believe that she is trying to prevent other little girls from suffering what she herself has been through.
Here’s what Barack Obama thinks of child molester Muhammad, and the religion that is based on child molester Muhammad:
For other examples of how Obama supports Islam, the religion that is based on child molester Muhammad, please see this other blog entry that I wrote, which is called Here are 36 reasons why I would not be surprised if Obama wanted Iran to destroy Israel
As far as I can tell, “Black Lives Matter” has shown zero anger or protest toward black student who posted “I’m going to shoot every black person I can on campus. Starting tomorrow morning.”
Over at Saginaw Valley State University, a 21 year old black student named Emmanuel D. Bowden posted the following message online:
“I’m going to shoot every black person I can on campus. Starting tomorrow morning.”
He could receive 20 years in prison for this.
It’s been six days since this information has been reported by the media, and yet, as far as I have been able to tell, the “Black Lives Matter” movement has not expressed any anger toward Bowden, or carried out any protests against him. Which verifies a post that I wrote a year ago, called “Black lives matter – except for the 93% of black murder victims who are killed by other blacks.”
If anyone finds a story of “Black Lives Matter” members being angry toward Bowden, or protesting against him, please post a link in the comment section. Thank you.
Here’s the video, which contains profanity:
National Review reports:
Hillary’s Campaign Ordered a Comedy Club Not to Make Fun of Her — Someone Should Tell Her This Isn’t China
The campaign actually threatened to shut the club down.
November 19, 2015
Hollywood’s Laugh Factory posted a three-minute video of comedians telling jokes about Hillary Clinton on its website…
… her campaign called the club demanding that it take the video down and give them the personal contact information of every single comic who appeared in it…
Club owner Jamie Masada reports that the campaign actually threatened to put the club out of business if he did not heed their demands…
However, I haven’t been able to find any mainstream media sources that have reported this information.
So, one of the two following things must be true: either the information is false, or, the mainstream media has failed to do its job.
If it is true, then this, by itself, is enough to convince me that Clinton does not support the Bill of Rights, and, therefore, should not be President. It also makes me wonder why the mainstream media has chosen to avoid reporting it.
If it’s not true, then the Laugh Factory owes Clinton a big apology.
I read the email that Erika Christakis sent to Yale students, defending their right to wear Halloween costumes, and, more importantly, their right to think for themselves.
I also watched the video where her husband, Nicholas Christakis, behaved with grace and dignity as a Yale student conducted a profanity laden temper tantrum directed at him.
The Christakises are too good for Yale. I recommend that they become Montessori teachers. They deserve to work at a real school that values intellectual freedom and independent thinking, and which would never tolerate the kind of disrespect from a student toward an adult that was displayed in that video. Well, perhaps a two-year-year old might be forgiven for acting that way, but a twelve-year-old who behaved that way toward an adult at a Montessori school would certainly be expelled.
Yale was probably a great school fifty years ago, but the fact that it now encourages and tolerates the kind of behavior in that video is proof that those days are long gone.
The Christakises would take a huge pay cut by switching to Montessori, but they would be treated with respect, which would more than make up for that.
Radical doomsayer environmentalists refuse to express joy at new NASA report which says Antarctic ice sheet has been gaining ice for decades
Uh oh. The radical doomsayer environmentalists who have been predicting melting ice caps for the past few decades are not going to like this at all – not one bit.
You don’t have to take my word for it. Instead, look for yourself. Read the news. Use whatever search engines you want.
You will not find a single example of celebration from any of the radical environmental doomsayer organizations that have been predicting the melting of the polar ice caps for the past few decades.
On the other hand, to those of us who like to look at things from a logical and rational perspective, this is great news – great news indeed.
NASA Study: Mass Gains of Antarctic Ice Sheet Greater than Losses
October 30, 2015
According to the new analysis of satellite data, the Antarctic ice sheet showed a net gain of 112 billion tons of ice a year from 1992 to 2001. That net gain slowed to 82 billion tons of ice per year between 2003 and 2008.
Video shows Yale student freaking out and yelling profanity at professor who said students have a right to dress up for Halloween
Snopes falsely says, “The Obama administration didn’t sue on behalf of Muslim truck drivers who refused to transport alcohol.”
In May 2013, the EEOC reported:
EEOC Sues Star Transport, Inc. for Religious Discrimination
Agency Charges Trucking Company Failed to Accommodate and Wrongfully Terminated Two Muslim Employees For Refusal to Deliver Alcohol Due to Religious Beliefs
Afterward, snopes reported:
The Obama administration didn’t sue on behalf of Muslim truck drivers who refused to transport alcohol.
I agree with the law professor who said this could be troubling for free speech. I worry about the precedent that it creates, and about the possibility of it eventually being expanded to any kind of political speech that anyone makes on the internet.
USA Today reports:
Judge: School’s Facebook post a campaign contribution
DENVER — A Colorado judge has ruled that a charter school’s Facebook post amounts to an illegal campaign contribution to a school board candidate.
In August, Liberty Common School in Fort Collins, Colo., shared a newspaper article about a student’s parent running for a board seat in a neighboring school district. Liberty Common’s principal, former Colorado GOP Rep. Bob Schaffer, then shared the post and called candidate Tomi Grundvig an “excellent education leader” who would provide “sensible stewardship” of Thompson School District.
An administrative law judge, Matthew E. Norwood, called the violation “minor,” and ruled that “no government money of any significant amount was spent to make the contribution.” He also focused on the post to the school’s specific page, not Schaffer’s personal page.
“The school’s action was the giving of a thing of value to the candidate, namely favorable publicity,” Norwood wrote in his Oct. 14 ruling, which became public Wednesday. “It was given indirectly to her for the purpose of promoting her election.”
Law professor Scott Moss of the University of Colorado called that point troubling for its implications on political speech.
“I don’t buy that under the First Amendment speech about a candidate can be deemed a contribution,” Moss said after reading the ruling. “Is speech valuable? Yes. But that’s not a basis for restricting core political speech.”
