“How long it goes on, I don’t know. I’m certainly not going to quit.” (Ben Shapiro Radio Show)

“How long it goes on, I don’t know. I’m certainly not going to quit.” (Ben Shapiro Radio Show)

My apprearance on the Ben Shapiro radio show: “I think this is a panic. I think this is a rage. I think they are looking for somebody to hate on and I’ve become a convenient figure for them to do that.”

I appeared earlier today on the Ben Shapiro Radio Show to talk about the panic sweeping the country as it is playing out at Cornell Law School. The audio is below.

You can see my prior posts for background:

Here’s a short excerpt:

I think this is just a rage and a fury. I think this is pent up frustrations that they’re taking out on me because they have this nice, nice, you know, bubble thought bubble where everybody agrees them and then somebody comes along and doesn’t agree with them. And therefore they view that as a danger to them. So I think this is a panic. I think this is a rage. I think they are looking for somebody to hate on and I’ve become a convenient figure for them to do that. How long it goes on. I don’t know. I’m certainly not going to quit.

For many years now I had to remind myself

“If they are going to be mean then make them be mean.”

Don’t do their dirty work for them.

There always has to be one Delta Tau Chi professor to spoil things for the rest of academia, doesn’t there?

notamemberofanyorganizedpolicital | June 18, 2020 at 9:30 pm

Cornell does not up their list of fall 2020 classes yet – as of a few hours ago.

They are staying shut up fall or must be expecting drop off the cliff enrollments????

Noticed similar patterns elsewhere….

Besides the very first basic amendment, WTF are they teaching at Cornell?

My2centshere | June 18, 2020 at 10:07 pm

I saw the Professor on Bill O’Reilly’s new show on The First. Good to spread this out on as many spots as you can.

I hope your anti-fan club is reading this because it probably eats them up how much extra traffic and support they are sending your way due to their little crusade.

I hope you all get ulcers, lol!

Sounds like somebody is late on a giant under-the-table payment to NLG. In the end, if you scratch these protests enough, you’ll always find a union on the look-out for a shake-down. Best of luck professor.

“How long it goes on, I don’t know. I’m certainly not going to quit.”

Folks, this is just the beginning.

You are being pulled into the triangle as The Persecutor.

Please read about Stephen Karpman’s Drama Triangle. Though maybe Lynne Forest explains it simpler, if you can tolerate some of the New Age-iness of her explanation. She calls it the Victim Triangle. Not sure if links are allowed here: https://www.lynneforrest.com/articles/2008/06/the-faces-of-victim/

Time to set boundaries.

Perhaps one day The Victim will claim self-responsibility and figure out how to end the drama within.

Hang in there. The Mob gets frustrated when people refuse to grovel and when corporations refuse to turn over the extortion money. If you stand up to the Mob, they’ll react furiously for a while, and then pick a more cowardly target (like your Dean).

It seems like every school is being taken over by the Mob. My own undergrad alma mater just sent out a very “woke” message from the President. They’re going to hire a “diversity” VP and they will force the freshmen to sit through a mandatory re-education course on left-wing politics camouflaged as “race and racism.”

I’ve donated to that school every year for 50 years. Not any more. I’ve sent them my last check. I think I’ll start sending the donations to Hillsdale College.

“… I think they are looking for somebody to hate on and I’ve become a convenient figure for them to do that.”

Stop being so ‘convenient’ – push back. Look to Jordan Peterson as an example. Be vocal – be on the record. Get out there and DEBATE.

You are going to be a well-known man, with all the perks.

But for God’s sake: get a stylist:

    You can say they’re about hate. I find them really to be about power.

    They hate that they don’t have ALL the power.

Speaking of not quitting….

Who can dig into this and keep going.

Would 100% explain the Leftist CONservatives on the Supreme Court.

“….the list of judicial nominees presented, considered, nominated and confirmed, were assembled and vetted by two specific groups: The Federalist Society and the Heritage Foundation; both of whom claim to hold conservative outlooks.

As a result, it’s a little more than concerning to discover

that both organizations are being funded by

the ultra-left wing Google ideology.

Yes, the same Big Tech outlet currently working on an advanced directive to block, control, censor and eliminate conservative speech on-line, is financing the organizations who claim to support conservative speech…..”

The Big Con – The Heritage Foundation and the Federalist Society are Being Funded by Google?…

You should consider it a badge of honor that they are going after you. It signifies that they are afraid of your influence. They believe that silencing you would slow down the loss of supporters that they are experiencing as a result both of their own increasingly insane behavior, and your steadying and rational site.

I never wondered how Hitler rose to power in Germany. Now I get it with this social justice virtue signaling stuff. The spew this crap all over the place and if you point out errors you are a racist.

Academic Liberals’ logic: (A satire, but a contrasting parallel)

“My college professor caught me cheating on a midterm exam. I was caught red handed, but when asked about why I cheated, I denied it because she hurt my feelings. She tried to give me an F and told me she was required to report me to the Dean of Students for an honor code violation. Instead, I fixed her. I found three people on Snapchat who helped me confront and tackle her to the ground. We hit her with my skateboard, took her chalk and gave her an F right there on the Quad! She’s has since been suspended without pay, pending an attempted hate crimes and false test grading investigation. To show support and help make things right, my classmates set fires to the classroom, the library, Starbucks and the Subway sandwich shops in the commons area, removed her photo in the department’s office foyer and are demanding that the Trustees defund the college to make learning safer.”

See how academic socialism and proactive disruption work?

I do not think they hate you, professor. They fear you. You are simply the star of the Cornell “2 Minutes of Hate.”

My niece carried the banner for her graduating class at Cornell. It was a proud and magical moment for mother and I.

I lived an hour south, and made many trips to Ithaca, such a beautiful place..

I would like to say that this too will pass, like a dark cloud. I cannot imagine what you are going through,, all I can say is I think you are kinda like the nail in the horse’s shoe. Stay safe.

    notamemberofanyorganizedpolicital in reply to amwick. | June 19, 2020 at 1:31 pm

    Ithaca town leaders better start knocking those college Democrat block heads together because the rest of the country view it as “Cornell, New York” – and the city will pay dearly if they don’t “control” their biggest industry.

2smartforlibs | June 19, 2020 at 7:12 am

This cancel culture will come for us all. Good to see someone stand up so we know it can be done.

I forget where that picture was taken but wasn’t there a protest going on outside while you presented your “hate” lecture? You have to work that into your story. It perfectly captures the problem.

Please stay strong, and thank you for your service to Cornell University, academia and to our nation.

I think if enough of us keep our heads and stay focused on the long term, we have a good chance of coming through this time of hysteria all right.

Morning Prof. J,

Ever consider calling this saga “The Toliet Paper Chase?”

Because all they are throwing at you is just worthless …

    This reminds me of a school I went to, in West Germany during the ’70s.

    I was brand new, in January, to this school full of white trash. I walk into a bathroom with ceiling 15 ft high. It most have once been an elegant anteroom, with patterned aluminum decorations on the ceiling.

    Also on the ceiling was toilet paper. Somebody had soaked rolls of toilet paper in the commodes, and thrown it up to stick on the ceiling.

    All over the place, wads of dried paper mache hanging from the ceiling. In the girls’ bathroom. In a lovely old building that had been repurposed as a school.

    This is what you get, when you have trash in the school building.

    The adults had not bothered to clean up after the trashy students.

    This spoke volumes to me, and all of it turned out to be true. A school without competent adult supervision is worthless.

Grand Moff Tarkin | June 19, 2020 at 10:31 am

You are a braver man than I am, Professor Jacobson. I wish you good luck in continuing to be a principled teacher for your students.

Don’t give in to their tyranny.

Thanks for doing the interview!

Never give an inch. Don’t be bullied into resigning. If they want you gone (which they certainly do), make them fire you, and sue them till it hurts.

Hang in there, Professor. Never Quit!

Shabbat shalom to you, Prof. Jacobson! You have many friends who support you.

Check out Prof WM’s wiki page. It’s surprisingly ‘neutral’:

Everything is just cover for the communist revolution. Amazing how much they want all power and all control.

I feel for you, Professor. This has got to be hard. I hope tenure is helping and serving its purpose, and I hope SOMEONE at Cornell, and someone in Ithaca, have their heads screwed on right, and push back as well.

Do they want to turn into Evergreen? Seriously.

I corresponded with the Cornell Dean. He wrote he may have been wrong about your post. Hmmm

Don’t you dare quit. You are right, and you are persuasive.

Remember Shakespeare’s famous quote “The first thing we do, let’s kill all the lawyers.” from Henry VI

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Let%27s_kill_all_the_lawyers

Although this part is alleged to be controversial, it’s pretty clear in context: evil people want to get rid of those who protect the rights of their prey.

Something I never understood in either college or law school is why, in the name of all that’s holy, am I supposed to listen to, or bother to be impressed by what my fellow students think.

My fellow students were allegedly there to learn, not teach. Why should I give any weight to the opinion of a student? If I need guidance, I should pick somebody with more experience and more training than I had. My fellow students did not qualify as teachers for me.

Prof. Jacobson, please remember the competent students. Whether they know it yet, or not, they are looking for you. Talk to them. They are there, even if they do not tell you.

William Rehnquist came to my law school, and some of the students wanted to have a boycott of his speech. They didn’t think he was worthy of the school. I said “He is Chief Justice of the US Supreme Court, and I want to hear what he has to say.” So, I sat in an auditorium with some vacant seats, and listened.

At the end, I should have walked down that aisle to shake his hand. At the time, I did not have sense enough to know that this would have been welcome.

Forgive the quiet ones their diffidence.

HEYYYYYY —- When is Prof. Jacobson’s BOOK coming out?????

The world is crying for one. Do it!!!!

Imagine there’s no heaven
It’s easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people living for today

Imagine there’s no countries
It isn’t hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people living life in peace, you

You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope some day you’ll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people sharing all the world, you

You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope some day you’ll join us
And the world will be as one

Of course that’s the lyrics from John & Yoko’s 1971 song, “Imagine”. For those aged enough to remember hearing it as a new release on their home or car radio, you can now understand, with the aid of almost 50 years of hindsight, much more vividly, where the couple was coming from in their beliefs and aspirations.

And current events at CLS, among too many academic institutions nation- and even worldwide, pretty much confirm to what event the couples’, among too many misguided souls’ “peaceful and loving” beliefs and aspirations were headed, then through today: the dawning, in our midst, of their social revolution.

Welcome to the Lennonist world, so peacefully, lovingly — but wrongly –imagined . . .

Welcome to John & Yoko’s world, so peacefully, lovingly — and wrongly — imagined, I finished above.

The current situation — well in the making mainly since a perhaps-well-meaning but foolishly naive phalanx of Stanford University students, firm co-dreamers all, no doubt, of John & Yoko’s childish, imagined utopia, were chanting/demanding, back in 1987, “Hey-hey, ho-ho, Western culture’s got to go!” and receiving SU’s, and many, many other schools’ replicated, ready compliance — doesn’t look good for liberty and justice, among other unalienable constitutional rights, and specifically academic freedom, as we know them (in their severely threatened, near-dying state) today.

Notwithstanding, a work I’m reading* finishes with an optimistic passage, on a note of hope:

“A transnational national culture means the end of nation and culture as we know them and the start of a clash based on race instead . . . Swapping Locke for [the racism-and-terrorism-promoting, black Algerian psychoanalyst Frantz] Fanon leaves
race as the preferred framework for social connection—and for group skirmishing as well. “Imagine there’s no countries, etc.,” turns out to be a formula for anomie and racial antagonism. The American idea offers a way out of the race trap for those willing to take it. In its absence, unfortunately, there emerges no “brotherhood of man.” Without a common civilizational and national culture, the way is open to racial finger-pointing instead. A Lennonist universal society, even if it could be achieved, would likely be as culturally flat, ideologically uniform, and aggressively thought-policed as Stanford’s intersectional coalition [that, among other things, led to canceling the instruction of Western civ’s core history and values there in 1987].

“Unlikely as it seems, it’s still not too late to return to Western civilization and the common national culture that a common heritage informs. We can return to the West because we’ve never really left it. Our strengths and our weaknesses are Western, because Western is what Americans are—“people of color” included.
Step one is to restore and recover the history we’ve abandoned under an avalanche of deconstructive skepticism. Foolishly, we’ve accepted that skepticism on faith. The evidence now suggests this faith was misplaced.”

Two corrections, please: On further inquiry, although Frantz Fanon was trained in psychiatry, it does not appear to be true that he also trained in psychoanalysis; therefore, his description, above, that he was, among other traits, a “psychoanalyst” is likely incorrect.

Also, while he lived, practiced, and wrote for the last eight years of his short life (he died at age 36) in Algeria, he was born and raised (as a teenager, his favorite, inspiring teacher was the strident Marxist and anti-colonial, independence activist Aime Cesaire) in the West Indies, on the then-French colonial (and since 1946, together with the South American nation of French Guiana, one of the “Special Collectivity” or “Unique” Overseas Department of the French Republic’s) island of Martinique.

Additional Note
Fanon led a passionate, informed, vibrant and active life. He’s a noteworthy, if also a highly controversial, historical figure. His existence as a major theoretical influence in black lives worldwide may, in fact, tie substantially to a richer, more humanistic, but no less strategic understanding at the fundamental level of the nature and forces challenging our presently threatened constitutional concerns regarding universal American liberty and justice, and their practical extensions, say, to academic freedom.

It only works if they can isolate people — come at them from all sides, with no visibility or moral support. So,

– I’ll be making a foundation donation. Wasn’t quite time yet, but this onslaught changes the priorities for me.

– My neighbors were stunned with my reply to their little sign n march initiative: silly and ineffective. Meanwhile fueling riots n worse, so maybe do something else.

– When a sign went up anyway — I rent half a house — I told my landlord “That isn’t my sign.” We’ve talked on issue a little, net: maybe don’t feed the goblins.

– Ironically, the black budding rapper supporting himself at the coffee shop I frequent is as exasperated as I am.

Do what you can, where you are. And tell other people about it, even if it’s a little. The support of anyone at all in there wish you is even better than words.
