Phyllis Chesler Disinvited from Academic Conference on Middle East Honor Killings

Scholar Phyllis Chesler was disinvited from a speaking event on honor killings at the University of Arkansas due to articles she has published on Breitbart News.

College Speaker Whines About Prison But Fails To Mention That She TORTURED AND KILLED A Man

Donna Hylton – sodomized man with steel pole before murdering him

Convicted felon Donna Hylton spoke on a civil rights panel at a fancypants college earlier this month but completely failed to mention that she — along with several others — kidnapped a man, forcibly sodomized him with a steel pole and then tortured him to death.

When a student at the event asked Hytlon about the heinous crime, a second panelist loudly berated the student for having “embarrassed” Hylton.

More Hysteria: Students Reported to Campus Thought Police for Glaring, Burnt Toast

Black Toast Can’t Be Racist!

Apparently just looking at someone the perceived “wrong way” or burning breakfast can get you reported on college campuses across the West today.

Yes, the latest bouts of snowflake-contrived hysteria occurred at University of Wisconsin Madison where a “white, female student” was reported to the school’s “bias incident” team for glaring at two female peers. The other incident involved… wait for it: a piece of burnt toast.

Mom Sends Her ‘Gendered’ Son, 3, to Ballet Class to Make Him More ‘Girlish’

“If I want my son to love and respect women, I am going to have to teach him to embrace—and ideally appreciate —“girlish” things. That’s why I’m weaving him a dandelion crown and signing him up for ballet.”

“I’m going to turn the little alphabet belcher into a proud princess whether he likes it or not.”

America’s Campus: The Necessity of Violence

If the campus hooligans want violence, will they be on its receiving end?

If you think that the mobbing of Charles Murray at Middlebury College in early March was the final stage of campus bullying, especially after denunciations came from conservatives and liberals alike, you missed the events at Claremont-McKenna College two weeks ago. People who came to hear Heather Mac Donald, who argues that the excessive scrutiny of policemen has led them to back off from their work and thus has increased crime levels, couldn’t enter the building. Protesters screamed at and pushed them, also threatening bystanders and journalists if they got too close. Heckling the speaker wasn’t enough. We saw full-on intimidation of anyone interested in the event.

Academic Intolerance Is Having Chilling Effects Even Beyond the Campus

Student thuggery against non-leftist viewpoints is in the news again. Agitators at Claremont McKenna College, Middlebury College, and the University of California’s Berkeley and Los Angeles campuses have used threats, brute force and sometimes criminal violence over the past two months in efforts to prevent Milo Yiannopoulos, Charles Murray, Ann Coulter and me from speaking. As commencement season approaches, expect “traumatized” students to try to disinvite any remotely conservative speaker, an effort already under way at Notre Dame with regard to Vice President Mike Pence.

This soft totalitarianism is routinely misdiagnosed as primarily a psychological disorder. Young “snowflakes,” the thinking goes, have been overprotected by helicopter parents, and now are unprepared for the trivial conflicts of ordinary life.

Did you know that there is Wrongthink science fiction?

From Bad Novelist:

The Wrongthink Sci-Fi Giveaway is about showcasing authors who have been marginalized by the gatekeepers of the sci-fi publishing industry for the sin of not complying with progressive social justice dogma. From Sarah Hoyt, who was accused of racism and ”internalized misogyny” for her association with the Sad Puppies campaign to reform the Hugo Awards, to Nick Cole, who lost a publishing contract for daring to write a story about an artificially intelligent computer who is troubled by abortion, these authors have faced smear campaigns, boycotts and blacklisting for failing to toe the progressive line. More.

Reality check: Bad novelist! Bad! You deserve plenty of readers.

Politically correct novels are an environmentally unfriendly form of litterbox liner.

While MSM Focuses on Insignificant Alt-Right, They Should Be All Over the Black Bloc

As a regular reader, you would know that after the election I spent some time investigating the Alt-Right which was supposedly a major force in the Trump election. My column put a damper on the relevance of this group despite all the hoopla. Since the election, the Black Bloc has become a major disrupter in our country yet it is barely written or spoken about.

A friend asked me if I was aware of the group which in itself speaks volumes. The group traces its roots back to Europe during the 1980s. It had its most pronounced debut in the United States during the 1999 Seattle riots during the World Trade Organization meeting, but really traces back to 1991 protests at the World Bank building during the Persian War.

Studying the faces of SJWs…

From Dystopic (“developer, amateur historian, would-be pundit, and general pain in the ass”) at Declination:

Folks, I don’t know how much of your thinking has been wasted on the matter of social justice and progressivism. A good man might ask himself if, perhaps, he really ought to carry these chains, if you are Jacob Marley to their Ebenezer Scrooge. But the question is moot to begin with. You can’t carry these chains, whether you wanted to or not. They are too big for you. They will destroy you. When you look into the face of an SJW, you are seeing someone who was already destroyed by this weight. Their psyches cracked under the pressure. They are no longer sane, or even themselves. It is almost like they are all possessed.

You see this sort of smug, superior grin in the face of an SJW. But behind it is utter madness. These are broken people, whose actions are no longer rational in any sense. Some can only gain satisfaction from submission, from emotional and intellectual (and sometimes physical) masochism and self-flagellation. Some can’t even gain it from that, anymore. Some have surrendered completely to animus possession. These people are no longer free-thinking individuals, capable of making decisions. They are, rather, individuals who have completely lost touch with reality. Unable to cope with the weight of the world, they seek to unload it on others. It’s your fault, not theirs. Nothing is their fault, they are perfect, you are to blame for everything.More.

Reality check: Their faces show how much time they have spent hating others.

We should treat a history of campus SJW as the social equivalent of a criminal record.

From Alex Southwell (pseudonym of a prof at a top-ranking U) at Quillette,

In the fall of 2005, I began working as a full-time faculty member in the General Studies program at Hudson University. I was promoted to full Professor last year. Thus, the tale I tell does not represent sour grapes.

No, it represents something more like immunity from prosecution. The quest for “diversity” has landed standards in the septic tank because nothing is more diverse than quality under siege by ulterior motives. For example,

In a more recent election for writing curricular chair, my competitor accused me in his mission statement of writing books and publishing essays. He treated these as blemishes or sins that somehow disqualified me for the position. “I haven’t written any textbooks. I don’t like textbooks. I don’t have a Ph.D. or scores of academic, scholarly publications to my name,” he wrote. These comments were made as part of a diatribe that diminished the importance of academic credentials and accomplishments, representing the Ph.D. and scholarly publications as pedantic, fuddy-duddy detriments rather than qualifications. As things go in my program, he won the election.

Among the writing faculty, most of whom hold M.F.A. degrees, a disdain for scholarship, and in particular for Ph.Ds. in English, is palpable. This attitude is likely owing to the fact that many of the faculty with M.F.As. are frustrated with having to teach first-year writing and other lower-level writing courses, apparently believing that they are soon-to-be-discovered literary authors who deserve sinecures within elite M.F.A. programs. More.

Reality check: The prof is too kind. The M.F.As of who he writes sound like over-promoted mediocrities whose true source of frustration is tnis: They cannot yet force everyone to listen to their intellectual Garbage Day pickup 24/7, while real talent hides, in fear of anti-free speech laws.

Anyway, “Southwell” should be glad he can even talk about the problem without ending up in the hospital like some. Meanwhile, cowardly colleagues snicker and hide, adminicrats fuss, alumni pay genteel shakedown, and campus brownshirts boast.

And campuses become indistinguishable from prison yards. And to study the faces of so many SJWs, that’s a natural setting. And why fight it? As for the tax expense, we have to pay for prison yards too, right?

But for our own safety we must sideline the grads of U programs from any social power. We should treat involvement in campus SJW as the unofficial equivalent of a criminal record.

The intellectual life will eventually need to be re-established apart from the university.

Worse Than Racists

Leftist embrace segregation and racist stereotypes in the name of “progress.”

As a group, black Americans have made the greatest gains — over some of the highest hurdles and in a very short span of time — of any racial group in mankind’s history. What’s the evidence? If one totaled up the earnings of black Americans and considered us as a separate nation with our own gross domestic product, we would rank among the 20 richest nations. It was a black American, Gen. Colin Powell, who once headed the world’s mightiest military. Black Americans are among the world’s most famous personalities, and a few are among the world’s richest people.

The significance of these and other achievements is that at the end of the Civil War, neither a slave nor a slave owner would have believed such progress would be possible in a little over a century — if ever.

If US campuses can’t protect free speech, they need new management

UC-Berkeley this week canceled an April 27 Ann Coulter speech, fearing riots. This lunacy will only grow until colleges start standing up decisively for free speech.

The school is trying to negotiate a new date, venue and ground rules with the group that invited her, but so far has failed.

Its worry is obvious: Masked, rock-throwing thugs prevented a February speech by Milo Yiannopoulos. And the area saw 20 arrests last weekend as extremists of left and right battled in the streets.
