This is fun: Progressive US prez Woodrow Wilson precious-little-asshatted at Princeton


Black Lives Matter activists at Princeton University have taken over the president’s office and say they won’t leave until the school acknowledges former U.S. president Woodrow Wilson as a racist and renames all buildings currently honoring him on campus.

Members of a group calling themselves the Black Justice League walked out of their classes late Wednesday morning and assembled at Nassau Hall, where they were met by Princeton president Christopher Eisgruber. The students presented a list of demands inspired by similar lists that have been seen at Yale University, the University of Missouri, and elsewhere.

“WE DEMAND the university administration publicly acknowledge the racist legacy of Woodrow Wilson and how he impacted campus policy and culture,” the students’ demands say. “We also demand that steps be made to rename Wilson residential college, the Woodrow Wilson School of Public Policy and International Affairs, and any other building named after him. Furthermore, we would like the mural of Wilson to be removed from Wilcox Dining Hall.”

Reality check: Yes, baby asshats, Woodrow Wilson was a racist, but he was a progressive racist. More like you than like the rest of us, preciouses.

From his time in office:

Wilson maintains that both the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution have outlived their usefulness—and their now outmoded truths. The scientific facts, Wilson coldly concludes, call for cooperation among the parts of government, not checks against one another.

Living political constitutions must be Darwinian in structure and in practice. Society is a living organism and must obey the laws of life, not of mechanics; it must develop. All the progressives ask or desire is permission—in an era when “development,” “evolution,” is the scientific word—to interpret the Constitution according to the Darwinian principle….

Wilson’s Darwinian constitutionalism means that an evolving human nature wipes away the need for the protection of individual rights by the separation of powers. Liberated from the old constraints demanded by an unchanging and flawed human nature, a government of now unlimited powers is unleashed to deal with the new political and economic conditions of corporations and political bosses.

How can there be a thing wrong with the man if he is for Darwin? Isn’t that as good as being for harvesting organs from babies born alive from abortions?

Darwin (genuflect!) was a flaming racist too, by the way. But we aren’t supposed to know that, are we?

    Using BLM to bash Darwin? A new low.
    Evolution is a valid science, intelligent design is not. Period.

    • THEORY of Evolution which the study of genetics punched holes in.

      As for the whiners, it’s clear that they have nothing better to do before becoming baristas.

      • FactsWillOut

        Don’t really understand how science works, do you? I guess you think Relativity and quantum mechanics punched holes in classical mechanics and electromagnetic theory, as well, don’t you?
        Also, you don’t seem to discriminate between the use of the word theory ,in say, a criminal investigation, and it’s use in science. There is a big difference, but I wouldn’t expect you to know that, it’s just a theory, and you’re just a girl, right?

        • I get it. You’re angry.

          I’ll leave you to it.

          When you feel like explaining how Mendel wiped the floor with Darwin, let me know.

          • FactsWillOut

            Mendel’s genetics in no way contradict what Darwin theorized.
            Selective pressures causing natural selection has been observed in nature, and natural selection causing reproductive isolation(aka speciation) has been reproduced in a lab.
            Evolution made many, many predictions that were born out by experiment, that makes it a valid scientific theory. Period.

            No; but carry on with your magical guesses.

            FWO you might want to know that Denyse O’Leary has written a book on Intelligent Design. I haven’t read it, but Amazon’s leading “Most Helpful Customer Review” says, “Ms. O’Leary’s book is a rehash of Intelligent Design (ID) propaganda which promotes shoddy science, shallow theology and incompetent journalistic research.”


          • Mendel’s studies over-rode Darwin’s theories. Furthermore, nothing Darwin explained can be duplicated or otherwise observed. This is why teaching the Theory of Evolution as though it was a law is erroneous.

          • FactsWillOut

            It’s not law, it’s science.
            Mendel’s studies did not override Darwin’s theory, they simply modified it a bit.
            Also, speciation, as predicted by Darwin, has been induced in a lab using selective pressures.
            Also, the theory of evolution has made numerous predictions, which were borne out by experiment. That makes it a science, and a theory, as opposed to just a hypothesis.

          • Well, that’s nice but it doesn’t explain how those who adapt, not the strongest, ect, survive. For a guy who selected these pressures (like that happens in nature), maybe Darwin should have seen his theory as brittle.

          • FactsWillOut

            Um, yes it does, toots.
            Perhaps you should study the subject instead of the rantings of creationists.

          • Who said anything about Creationism, aside from you?

        …or fed gov’t unionized paper pushers which explains why it takes a decade to get a piece of paper from any of the alphabet agencies — and then it is misspelled and incorrectly dated and must be resubmitted. Forget calling; no speaka english or only slang.

      • Everyone Else

        Osumashi you don’t seem to understand what FWO is saying. By the simple fact that intelligent design is incapable of being disproven it automatically becomes non-science. This doesn’t mean intelligent design theory doesn’t have value in some other realm, only that it isn’t science. The comment by FWO is correct.

        • I never said anything about Intelligent Design, only that the Theory of Evolution is not valid as a law.

    • I really don’t think “Wilson’s Darwinian constitutionalism” is identical to “evolutionary science”.

    • disqus_PwGxBXHn8l

      FWO, read up. Especially read Suzan Mazur’s latest, Paradigm Shifters, on non-ID related scientists with serious problems with Darwinism, Mendelian or otherwise, based on unco-operative post-genome mapping genetics. It’s a new world out there. It’s very interesting but it isn’t Darwin or Mendel.

      And, by the way, Wilson was a good old-fashioned Darwinian racist. That does not in any way excuse the baby asshats. When they get a free hand, we will face what the Chinese faced during the Cultural Revolution: The destruction of millennia of “Wrong Thought,” on behalf of today;s thugs-in-training.

      They don’t want to know. They want to boss us around.

        Denyse O’Leary you should be commenting under your real name, not a disqus pseudonym. Yes I know you have a picture to establish plausible deniability for a claim of innocence. However you have lots of blog posting experience and know exactly what I’m talking about.

        • disqus_PwGxBXHn8l

          No. I am afraid I do not know what you are talking about. I am unaware of a disqus pseudonym. I am the author of the post and that is me, pictured at upper right. – Denyse O’Leary, Ottawa.

          Must be Friday night.

      Intelligent Design is not scientific. No explanation that says, “And a miracle happens here,” can be scientific. But it is not anti-scientific either. I often refer to it as “God with a screwdriver.” A tiny tweak here, a nudge there, reverse the spin on an electron over there, to make the seemingly random processes “come out right.” I’ll never be able to prove it, and you’ll never be able to disprove it.

      • Everyone Else

        Mannie you don’t understand what science is. Science is many things, but the one necessary condition is that what it says is capable of being disproven – at least theoretically. So if Intelligent Design can’t be disproved, as you say, then it isn’t science and shouldn’t be confused as such. Calling it “not anti-scientific” is a rhetorical device (self-cancelling double negative) aimed at scientific validation. I have no problem with anyone’s belief in ID, but I do have a problem when they try and sneak science in the back door.

        • Mannie

          You are saying the same thing that I am. The first words you quoted are “Intelligent Design is non-scientific.” As I said. it cannot be science, because it is not falsifiable. It is faith based. Faith can coexist with science, but doesn’t have to. There are still flat earthers out there. Science doesn’t challenge my faith, it just increases my sense of wonder. If I learn that am wrong about a scientific detail it doesn’t shake my faith, it demonstrates my fallibility. God will never be disproven, nor will He allow his presence to be proven. Not here, anyway.

    The Black Lives Matter group went from CUNY to Hunter College in NYC demanding free tuition and blaming the Zionists for their financial woes. A lot of sickness going on here. Of course the authorities, drunk on political correctness and multiculturalism will cave in to their every demand. I can hardly wait until BLM demands that Thomas Jefferson the slave owner’s face is removed from Mount Rushmore to make way for someone more politically correct.

    • Kathy Prendergast

      Why stop there? They’ll soon be demanding the removal of all those racist white men’s faces, and demanding that the city of Washington be renamed. It’s not like there’s no precedent for it as Obama recently grossly dishonoured the memory of an assassinated president by changing the official English name of Mount McKinley in Alaska back to its supposed “local” and “original” Indian name, Denali.

    I demand blm admit the first black slave in America was held by a black man that went to court to demand it: and that slaves were captured in africa by black tribes that sold their black brothers to arabs and the whites stopped slavery while it is still legal in africa and islam. AND I want reparations for the arabs and africans that invaded Europe and enslaved white women, children, and men….and for the moslem pirates that enslaved our shippers.
