    Time to send these profs packing rather than pay them to destroy civilization.

    • They have ruined “higher” education.

      • Exile1981

        I’ve discovered the root cause of why it is each time these university types look out the window all they see is hatred, racism and evil.
        Heh!, idiot, that’s a mirror not a window.

        • Clausewitz

          Deep case of projection.

          • Exile1981

            Exactly – Usually when meeting a person for the first time I can guess how far left they are by two factors.
            1) How seething their anger is and how obvious it is.
            2) BMI

    “Universities” are problematic institutions

  • ontario john

    Is “Dickhead” a problem?

  • Norman_In_New_York

    It is even more problematic that the University of New Hampshire receives American tax dollars.

    • Alain

      Funny how that doesn’t bother them, eh.

  • Chris

    In the sheltered world of academia it’s far too easy to mistake their favoured theories as reality. These are people who have never had to step out of their comfort zones and experience the daily grind of life and even worse are told by their equally sheltered fellows how enlightened they are.

  • Clausewitz

    Progressives believe that the quickest way to transform the psychology of a group is to change the language. To them that’s excellent double good.

    • Alain

      Actually that is part of cultural marxism and to date it has worked.

      • Clausewitz

        Progressivism, Cultural Marxism, it’s all the same thing.

        • Alain

          I concur. It is the same just a different name, but my point was that it has worked. Think of the hijacking of various words and how they were then used to change the culture. The adjective “gay” comes to mind but is far from being the only one.

  • Blind Druid

    As averse as I am to use gutter banalities on this forum, I wonder if perhaps our moral and intellectual superiors at this illustrious educational edifice would consider adding “Suck My Cock” to their well-considered list? That’s all.

    • Clausewitz

      I think that it’s covered by the more common, “bite me”.

  • Canadian

    “University” is fast becoming a problematic word for me.
