Academic Idiocy 102

UNC “Literature of 9-11″ Course Blames “Greedy, War Hungry” US for Deadly Attacks.

A freshman class at UNC Chapel Hill this fall with explore the 9-11 terrorist attacks from a radical Islamists’ point of view. The course will teach kids that the United States was to blame for the attacks that killed three thousand Americans.

He studied transnational cultural studies at the University of California, San Diego and gender studies (Gender Studies. Wouldn't you know it?)  at Northwestern University, where he was a student organizer and labor solidarity activist) The professor's next class - blaming the Jews for the Holocaust.

The Obama's Administration Legacy of Lawlessness

The Obama administration has proved to be the least transparent in our modern history. To an unprecedented degree, the administration is staffed by scofflaws who flout their legal obligations. When confronted with requests for information, let alone actual investigations, Obama’s habitual response is to stonewall. This strategy has been remarkably successful in avoiding accountability, in part because legal processes are so slow.

The Obama administration’s lawlessness is perhaps its most repellent legacy

(Part of the problem is the MSM media ignores such lawlessness so reduces the pressure on the administation. The press is no longer a watchdog but a lapdog.  Has any reporter asked officials why they are violating the Constitution by not protecting the border.)

At Least They are Recognized as Morlocks

Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump during the first pre-primary debate reiterated a point he’s made throughout his campaign that ‘the big problem this country has is being politically correct.’ Most Americans strongly agree with that sentiment. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 71% of American Adults think political correctness is a problem in America today, while only 18% disagree. Ten percent (10%) are undecided.” Almost a 4-1 margin. That’s pretty huge.

(However, the problem is those politically correct trolls control the media, academia and, to a large part, the entertainment industry and, of course the Democratic Party.  When confronted, the moral folks have to push back twice as hard.)

Academic Idiocy 101

Professors threaten bad grades for saying ‘illegal alien,’ ‘male,’ ‘female’  (But I assume my 'White Privilege' would negate that and get me an  'A.' Plus, of course, get me a discount on tuition.)

Actually this raises the question 'Who do universities hire the most stupid people in the world as professiors?')

Russia Officials as TV Critics

A new TV series in which Russia occupies Norway and seizes its oil fields has been criticized by the Russian Foreign Ministry, with the Russian embassy in Oslo labelling it as reminiscent of the "worst traditions of the Cold War."

(This is amusing.  For the most part, the Soviet Union got a pass from Hollywood during the Cold War. Due to the leftwing fanaticism of Hollywood, very few films during that era made communists the villains. Even in  the first James Bond films, Dr. No and From Russia With Love, scriptwriters changed the bad guys from the Soviet Union to SPECTRE.  In the books, Dr. No was working for the Soviet Union and it was the Soviet KGB who plotted to kill Bond in "From Russis with Love." One leftwing Norwegian historian said the film would be offensive because the Soviet Union liberated Norway from the Nazis in WW II.  That's idiotic, because it never happened. It was the U.S. and England and the other allied forces who liberated Norway.)
