Ontario NDP candidates target the Jewish state

She once characterized the infamous tweet by BLM co-founder Yusra Khogali asking Allah not to allow her to cuss/kill white men as just an “angry reaction” to the “trauma she experiences from everyday racism, misogyny, and Islamophobia.”

Nutty U of T prof and NDP candidate in Beaches-East York, Rima Berns-McGown — who was born in Apartheid South Africa and raised as a Jew in Canada — wrote a few years ago after a visit back to South Africa that she’d always known she is “black.”

Link fixed.

Fresno professor calls farmers ‘f-ing stupid Trump-supporters,’ praises terrorists in vulgar f-bomb rant

The scandal surrounding Fresno State professor Randa Jarrar grew even worse this week after video footage emerged of her criticizing the farmers who produce our food but praising the left-wing terrorists who hijacked planes in the 1960s and 1970s.

That this “thing” could be granted tenure illustrates how debauched and irrelevant academia has become.

Wake Forest Professor Claims Believing in God is ‘Immoral and Illogical’

Dr. Jarrod Whitaker specializes in South Asian religions at the North Carolina school and also allegedly asserted that belief in an objective truth “is the most tremendous evil that is responsible for all the great suffering in the world,” reported The Wake Forest Review.

What the Hell Are These Colleges Talking About?

Maybe I’m the dumb one for not understanding what this lecture was supposed to be about. The description on the University of Texas at Austin’s website says:

Female Prof: Let’s Pay Female Professors More For Their ‘Emotional Labor’

A female professor at The University of San Francisco is promulgating an idea that should enrage feminists, but probably won’t: she wants colleges to compensate female faculty members for their “emotional labor.”

Howard University Professor: School Choice Is Racism.

On Friday, Natalie Hopkinson of Howard University wrote a piece for Huffington Post suggesting that school choice was — you guessed it — racist. Why, pray tell, is it racist to remove your children from failing public schools and attempt to place them in schools where they are likely to receive a better education?
