Academia’s embrace of the far left is starting to get noticed by more people.

The left makes their bias very easy to identify.

There is push back.

I’m sensing a trend.

Consequences…

“Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor?”

I’m listening…

Since the Socialists started taking over control of the university educational systems back in the mid 1800s after being expelled from Europe, especially France and Germany, this is what it has come to. After exhibiting the patience to wait it out for decades over a century, they now control education–the government even conveniently provided a Department of Education to expand their reach into local “public” schools, and now they teach whatever they want: gender studies, social justice, racism, etc., twisting terms and reinventing language so black is white and right is wrong, secular humanism in which what’s right is a personal choice and not a legal construct.

Today’s college freshmen are a complete degree behind: remedial everything must be taught so that they that can finish a bachelors degree have the same academic abilities as their grandparents who only graduated high school. Oh, sure, knowledge has advanced, but when they can’t read cursive writing, form a cogent logic-based argument or handle real-world basic math–e.g., how much is the 15% tip on a $39 dinner?–and can only take tests, they’re not prepared for the real world that the Socialists and Communists of the world have been preparing for them.

Off topic:

This site has adopted those uncontrolled jumping-jack videos that do not stay in place. Worse, the video sound cuts off if scrolled out of view.

Personally, I’d really prefer to read a story rather than watch some talking head, so I consider videos a poor choice in the first place.

Finally, a talking head will never match my reading speed, so I always continue to scroll on while listening. Now, of course, I can’t even do that. Very poor choice.

“but when they can’t read cursive writing…”
Then they can’t read the Declaration of Independence or our Constitution in their original forms.

    Plus high school graduates given free college tuition who can only read at 3rd grade level is no help in that either.

Embrace?

They’ve had a non-stop orgy with the Left through the last 3 decades.

Re the Animal House link-post:

I “bookmarked” this to read later, because I could not the day it was posted. Again – awesome work here Mike LaChance!

I noticed in all the critics’ articles a similar judgmental, hypocritical projection showing – to wit:

From the Vice snippet:

…It’s difficult to imagine coming to it today never having seen it before. Drunken frat boys don’t seem so charming anymore, the film’s gender politics are fucked beyond repair, and there’s no one to latch onto as a sympathetic character….

and:

…If you had an Animal House poster on your dorm wall, you were probably a sad, weird loser and if you have one in your dorm today, guess what?

From the Oregon Live snip:

…What was portrayed as simple, raunchy fun back in 1978 can easily look like sexist, racially insensitive boorishness when viewed through contemporary eyes. [emphasis in bold, mine]

And finally – and perhaps proving my point most clearly – from the USA Today snip:

…Things found seriously offensive by some are deemed “just a joke,” and those who find it hurtful are berated for not understanding comedy.

Point that at yourselves, judgmental cretans, at YOUR toxic SJW culture! Start living by those standards! Guess what – YOU CAN’T DO IT!

As Mr. LaChance points out quite correctly, their inner embrace of Dean Wormer (i.e. the stereotypical fascist dictator, aka every Univ. administrator they have cow-towed to of late), their inability to have fun (or even have a sense of humor), their inability to laugh at themselves, their wont to take themselves OH SO SO seriously (no wonder they are anxious all the time, who can step back and breathe when you have to HATE EVERYTHING(TM) while saying “no h8”!), and finally – the most important point Mr. LaChance makes, IMHO – their self-righteous, egomaniacal belief that they are, as outrageously outraged judges of the past, able and RIGHT to apply “new rules” to a time when those rules DID NOT APPLY. Who died and made you JUDGES OF THE PAST?! Must be a heavy burden of guilt and an unimaginably large EGO to think you are qualified to be the JUDGE OF ALL THINGS PAST – yikes! (And you all dare to criticize Trump’s ego?! Give me a break!!)

Frankly, on that last point – their “new rules” should NEVER apply! These so-called “rules” are simply neo-Marxist (note: that is NOT an “anti-Semitic dog whistle”), fascistic rules which millions have died to stand and defend against, to stop them from taking over our world (e.g. WWII, Korean War, Vietnam War, the millions executed by Mao, Stalin, Lenin, and all the fascist socialist dictators, which is simply a point on the Marxist progression).

As you SJWs like to say, “Check your privilege!” and by that I mean LOOK IN THE MIRROR AND DO SOME SERIOUS SELF-EXAMINATION BECAUSE YOU ARE NOT QUALIFIED TO FILL THAT JOB!!! It is NO ONE’S JOB to judge the past by some more current standard!! No one is qualified to judge and condemn those of the past using more modern standards. Period. (That thinking is what led to the tragic, horrid events like Mao’s Cultural Revolution.)

Long post, but bottom line: you small-minded critics — LOOK IN THE MIRROR. That enemy you keep calling out….is YOU, times 100.
