US: University Launches Insult-Reporting System That Records Offenders’ Social Security Numbers

It’s for students’ ‘safety’

The University of Colorado-Boulder has launched an online system where students can report people who make “hurtful statements” — and it’s so intense that it even asks for offenders’ Social Security numbers.

This “Bias Incident Reporting” system is intended to “address the impact of demeaning and hurtful statements as well as acts of intolerance directed towards protected classes,” according to the school’s website.

Bias reports are evaluated by the school’s “Bias Incident Response Team” which includes representatives from the office of the dean of students, the Office of Victim Assistance, and even the campus police.

The reporting form asks for the meanie-head’s name, gender (better get it right!), e-mail, address, date of birth, phone number and student ID number (if the meanie-head is a student) or a Social Security and/or driver’s license number (if the meanie-head is someone else)…

    Here, if I stray from the narrative, I get showered with scorn, with the exception of AviSion, who at least makes an attempt at reasoning and arguing my points.
    At SDA a few years ago, when I interrupted a GWB love-in with his famous “Islam is Peace” vid, Lance published the city I lived in and my IP in the comment section.
    The Canadian “Right” has a few bad apples too, it would seem.

    Mark Steyn’s “but brigade” is strong here in Canada. They support the right to bear arms, but…
    They support freedom of conscience, but…
    They support freedom of association, but…
    They support private property rights, but…

    • Gary

      Those yahoo’s will slide all the way to hell on their But’s .

      • FactsWillOut

        Sadly, they’re dragging everybody else along for the ride.

    • Facts, I really think Lance would only have done that if he was worried that you’d said something that the police might be interested in. Publishing your IP is a way to distance the blog from potential criminal investigation. I’ve known Kate to do it once or twice, and only for that reason.

      • FactsWillOut

        Ah, so publicly publishing a guy’s IP and city is OK.

        Got it.
        So I guess ISP’s should voluntarily hand over data to the cops, and the public, to avoid investigation.
        If they felt that way, they could have deleted my comment, but they chose rather to violate anonymity.
        If you think it’s OK to do that without a court order or a warrant, I don’t think we’re gonna be the good friends I’d hoped we’d be.

        Again, freedom of speech, but…

        • I wouldn’t do it. I’m just telling you that that’s probably why Lance did it. Not petty spite or anything like that.

          I mean look, turn this around for a moment. Do you think it’s okay for a commenter – any commenter, this is just a hypothetical – do you think it’s okay for a commenter to say something on a blog that has the potential to get the blog owner sued or investigated by the cops?

          • FactsWillOut

            As long as it’s not incitement to murder or mayhem, or libellous, yes.
            That being said, the blog owner has the right to delete any comment, for any reason he sees fit, and publish my IP and city of residence, despite the highly unethical nature of that act, which should have consequences. Perhaps a GoFundMe campaign recruiting SJW’s based upon some choice excerpts from their archives?

          • Xavier

            The problem, in that case, should be with the commenter – not the blog. Unjust laws or unjust application of the law do not give you carte blanche to betray your readers or become a self appointed censor.

          • “The problem, in that case, should be with the commenter – not the blog.”

            No doubt it should be, but that doesn’t necessarily mean it will be.

          • Justin St.Denis

            Mamba, you have a strong point. I am not certain of this, but I believe that Canada and the USA have diametrically opposed perspectives on this very issue. Can anyone inform/confirm?

          • FactsWillOut

            Free Dominion got shut down because a commenter posted stuff that he knew the HRC would go after, and that same commenter sicked the HRC on them.
            BM is correct to be circumspect, despite it’s seeming similarity to abject surrender.
            I believe BCF had…similar…problems of his own.

          • Xavier

            I know, he explained it to me a few monthes ago when this subject came up then. BNI got the same treatment. See my comment below.

        • Xavier

          What is allowable at BCF isn’t allowable at NewsBusters – they banned me for a comment that’s ultra-tame by the standards here. On the other hand, many of the comments on Moonbattery or DC Clothesline would be unacceptable to BCF moderators.

          Those are all Conservative blogs, but with very different tolerance levels for invective. The problem is that there’s no standard, there’s no policy, and there’s no indication of how far a blog is willing to go to protect itself – and yes, I admit sometimes that’s justifiable, but only when fair warning has been given.

          You need a written blog policy. For f***’* sake, I’ll write it for you, but do something to protect BCF and let your readers know the boundaries.

          • FactsWillOut

            Conservatives don’t really go for standards in that sense.
            Still, publishing my IP and city of residence is unforgivable.
            I’m pretty sure none of the mods here would do that.
            Lance at SDA is a neocon, who, In My Honret Opinion, “has his lips so firmly attached to Harper’s and McCain’s nether regions, that any suggestion that he indeed fellating them and their Saudi paymaster is to be met with extreme prejudice”

          • Justin St.Denis

            “Invective” should never serve as a reason/rationale for censorship. I rather enjoy being insulted by dolts and trolls on line. It assures me I haven’t lost my “edge”. 😉

          • Regardless in Canada as publisher I get nailed not the commenter.

          • Xavier

            Isn’t that comment absolute, incontrovertible proof that you need a comment policy?

            I don’t see a lot of trolls here, and my experience at BCF is that moderation occurs when a regular reader becomes emotional about a sensitive topic. That is, it’s accidental, or at least unintentional; none of the regular readers want to see you or the blog get in trouble.

            Playing a guessing game about what’s acceptable language isn’t any fun, and being modded pisses people off; it pits the mods against the regulars who mean no harm. Educate your readers and let your moderators concentrate on trolls and SJWs who would falsely implicate the blog by posting inflammatory comments.

            I’ll shut up now.

            Is it now?

    • Xavier

      I’m seriously considering setting up a proxy server on my German site so Conservatives can avoid the banhammer or childish doxing like you got at SDA. No U.S. laws in Kiel!

      • I really feel like I have to defend SDA’s honour here. They do not make a habit of doxing people.

  • UC – Boulder defines a “bias incident” as “any conduct or expression in which an individual or group is intentionally targeted and that demeans, degrades or harasses an individual or group based on the actual or perceived basis of race, color, national origin, sex, pregnancy, age, disability, creed, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, veteran status, political affiliation, or political philosophy of another individual or group of individuals.”

    The above is from the National Review article.

    This is so broadly worded it means nobody can say anything about anybody with out worrying about being reported for being “biased”.

    Typical leftist bull sh*t.

    And this supposedly comes from an institution of higher education.

    This won’t last long when Black males are 99% of the cases and the Univ.’s deem this racial profiling to target Blacks.
    The recent story of a School with a Zero-Tolerance policy pretty well says it all because it was the Black male students being suspended and put on the Reports for disrupting the class and foul language at the Teachers.

    Those poor White Liberals , they thought that it was all those OTHER white people that were racists and being verbally abusive in schools from privilege and feeling superior to dominate and insult women.
    But their Honey seems to have only confirmed what teachers said in the 1990’s about Black male kids with no father’s that caused problems in Kindergarten and were aggressive to hit other kids and act out their rage.

    Here in Toronto the Teacher’s were deemed racists in the late 1980’s when the children from the Carribean invasion in the late 1970’s got into the Kindergarten’s and High Schools which gave us Knives and Guns that Liberals now deny is linked to unwed Mother’s on Welfare in Gov Housing with several kids from difference bed partners that are not around .

    Yes folks, Liberals can’t be racists even when they excuse away violence from non-whites as coming for a root-cause like exclusion and bigotry or the classic Poverty and 400 years of slavery . The new Soft-racism by Liberals is to see muslim terrorist as peaceful people that were provoked and are passionate about their faith which non-msulims should know that it can cause them to kill to protect their Peaceful so called prophet.

  • Are people five years old or something?

  • Glenfilthie

    Let’s be absolutely clear about who is driving this ghastly drop in maturity in the universities:
    Remember elementary school? When the boys acted up – who was it that scampered off to snitch on them? The girls! In this case, women-children who haven’t grown up. Can you imagine what is going to happen when these immature shrews hit the job market? These stunned cnuts are going to turn it into a day care!
    Yaknow…this is why in better times, women didn’t vote or were allowed into positions of authority. They are socialists and fascists by nature and this latest ass-hattery proves it.

    • El Martyachi

      …probably a majority of westerners are in a state of unreal arrested development. I dunno about women being socialists and fascists by nature .. a bit of a stretch. What’s increasingly evidently bad though is this process whereby women are put into positions of authority by virtue of being women. It’s corrupt and produces more corruption. That is the core issue and this war of the sexes would probably melt away without it.

      There’s all kinds of craziness going on in this area. I don’t have a citation handy so you’re just gonna have to trust that I’m not deliberately lying .. but there’s research showing that vocal pitch between the two sexes is converging in the area broadly considered to be The West while diverging in other areas (Asia for one).

      • Wally Keeler

        5 years ago I asked and obtained the gender stats of the Durham-Kawartha-Northumberland School Board. I cannot recall the numbers from memory. Day care centres are overwhelmingly run by females. Elementary school teachers were females in a wide majority. Secondary school teachers were females in a clear majority. Vice principals, principals and superintendents, were all majority female. A govt funded nurturing industry; the Matriarchy has landed. Behold, the future has arrived.

    • Justin St.Denis

      Unfortunately, you are right. Specifically, women’s political power has been increased as third-wave feminist groups work overtime to more sharply define women as perpetual victims of societal patriarchy and “pervasive innate male violence”. This is why we lived with a tight budget for years while our kids attended private schools. But it was worth it. Our kids grew up to be unconfused, clear-thinking and rational breeder adults. 😉
