This post is going to be a bit lengthy, but an EXCELLENT illustration with the problems conservatism faces at the “institutions of higher learning”.

TheDC gets results: Michigan State suspends prof who called GOP racists,  rapists

“Sparty”, the Michigan State University mascot, and Professor Asshat,  William Penn.

A Michigan State University professor who began class last week by deriding  all Republicans as cheap racists who are raping the country has been suspended  for the duration of the semester.

MSU administrators announced on Thursday that William Penn, an award-winning  creative writing professor, would not be teaching for the rest of semester after  his hate-filled rant was captured on video and leaked to the press. The media  attention prompted MSU to launch a speedy investigation, which concluded that  Penn had indeed acted inappropriately.

“On Aug. 29, during your Literatures, Cultures, Identities course,  Professor William Penn made comments he has acknowledged were  inappropriate, disrespectful and offensive and may have negatively affected  the learning environment,” wrote Karin Wurst, dean of the College of Arts  and Letters, in an email to students. “As a result, Penn’s duties have been  reassigned, and he will not be teaching this semester. A new instructor is  being assigned to your course.”

A teaching assistant read the message aloud to students in the class on  Thursday. Derek Wright, an MSU junior who was in the classroom, said there was “not a sad face in the room,”  in a statement to The State News.

Penn’s comments irritated several members of the board of trustees of MSU,  who plan to raise the issue at their next meeting, according to Campus Reform.

Penn threw just about every insult in the book at older conservatives. (RELATED:  Michigan State prof’s first day rant)

“They’re cheap,” he said. “They don’t want to pay taxes because they have  already raped this country and gotten everything out of it they possibly  could.”

He said Republicans were supporters of deliberate suppression of black voters  in several states. He also insulted Ann Romney, openly questioning why Mitt  Romney would ever marry a woman like her.

Of course, he didn’t mean to offend anyone.

“If you are a Republican, forgive me, I absolutely don’t mean to offend you,”  he said.

THIS one, the good guys won. Professor ( a title he is OBVIOUSLY not qualified to hold) Penn, liberal to the bone, and asshat to the max, opened his liberal cake chute, and drove in a  Mack Truck and did a U-turn  instead.

MSU is NOWHERE near as liberal as is the other college here in the PRoAA is, the University of Michigan, and, as such, the dickhead lost his position until the end of the semester, pending an investigation, which, hopefully, the Board will boot his ass out permanently. They do things just a bit differently in East Lansing as opposed to Ann Arbor, where the sonofabitch would have been lauded and promoted.

  I urge you to follow the “Related” link up in the body of the story, so as to hear the pissant’s rant for yourself. Could have been written by Axelrod himself.

Now, onto our loss. In this one, we see just WHAT is considered “intellectually important” at THIS misguided “institution of higher learning”.

UPDATE :  The MSU Prof. William Penn is indeed a tenured professor. He has been “re-assigned”, with pay, of course, pending an investigation. There are some state legislators calling for his dismissal. More to follow.

Disgusting what passes for “fair”.

UNC student leaders accuse conservative women of being  ‘non-intellectuals’

5:44 AM  09/05/2013
Apparently, on the UNC/ Chapel Hill campus, THIS is worth funding, and considered intellectual, while THESE…….
….. are NOT worth funding, and considered “non-intellectual”. Sheesh. Our “best and brightest” at work.

Reporter, The Daily  Caller

The student government at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill has  dealt a final blow to the College Republicans’ budgetary plans, effectively barring the group from bringing two  well-known conservative women to campus — and insulting those women in the  process.

Last week, the student government  finance committee slashed the College Republicans’ funding allocation from  $8,000 to $3,000. The cut meant that students would not be able to bring  conservative speakers Katie Pavlich and Ann McElhinny to campus, so they  appealed the decision to the full Student Congress.

College Republican chairman Peter McClelland argued that the funding was  important in order to maintain a semblance of intellectual diversity  on the liberal campus. UNC Students have few chances to be exposed to  conservative speakers and ideas, he said. Besides, at least  two liberal  organizations — a socialist club and a feminist magazine — received more funding  than the College Republicans.

But the Student Congress was unmoved by these arguments, and voted 21-1 to  allocate only $3,000 to the club earlier this week.

During the debate over the issue, several student government leaders insulted  Pavlich and McElhinny, whom they deemed “non-intellectual,” “non-academic” and  “unreliable.”

McElhinny is a well-known environmental reporter  and investigative journalist who has received accolades for her documentary,  “Frack Nation.”

Pavlich is a Fox News contributor and author of The New  York Times  bestseller, “Fast and Furious: Barack Obama’s Bloodiest Scandal and Its  Shameless Cover-Up.”

But these credentials did not impress the UNC Student Congress.

“My concern why I supported removing this is that the educational value —  [McElhinny’s] work has been called… ‘unreliable as a Wikipedia page,’”  ​said Austin Root, vice-chairman of the finance committee, as reported by The College Fix.

“We’re talking about $5,000 for a lady who made a movie, and $3,000 for a  contributor to Fox News,” said Harrison Touby, a student representative.  “That is a lot of money for two non-academic speakers to come to an academic university to  speak.”

One student government member defended  the two women, pointing out that an extra $5,000 would hardly break the UNC  bank; the Student Congress has $90,000 in reserve funds.

“These are well-known speakers in the conservative community and I don’t  think this is a large amount to pay for speakers that would bring a lot of  interest,” said Brittany Best, chairperson of the finance committee.

Despite promising that the events would draw over 100 students, College  Republicans were denied their request for additional funds–and are now unsure of  how to make up the difference.

Funding for student groups is allocated by the student government based on  the value of the group or event. Mandatory student fees constitute the funding  source.

I believe with these two articles, one turning out well, the other not, at just TWO of the TENS of THOUSANDS of college campii across the Fruited Plain tells the story of where we find the country at today.

The college, or university, if you prefer, are SUPPOSED to be where IDEAS, and the FREE EXCHANGE of those ideas take place. We are seeing the results of the leftist, communistic takeover of our institutions bearing fruit.

If your ideas do not mirror THEIRS, yours simply do not get heard, read, funded, nor anything else. Some “intellectual intercourse”, eh?

Other than raising hell, and withholding gifts, donations, what have you, and pressuring others to do the same, along with raising hell with the Boards of Regents, or whatever the institution has for governance,I see no way we can put the brakes on the destruction of the educational system in our country.

These “future leaders” of our nation have been poisoned by 12 years of  mostly union-run, democrat-controlled, public elementary, middle, and high school “educations”, then go onto college, where it gets WORSE as far as leftist, communist indoctrination goes.

Then, after completing collge, MANY of them are turned back loose to our public school systems, further eroding the quality of the education our young people receive. Kind of like a dog chasing it’s tail.

Two of my daughters have long graduated university, but the results of their education is SLOWLY being replaced by life’s realities, so they are just now realizing the absolute bullshit they were spoon-fed for damn near 6 years, in both their cases. The THIRD daughter didn’t go to college, she went into business, and while not earning the salaries of her siblings, is FAR more informed about the world, and how it REALLY works.

Parents of college-age students, you MIGHT want to take more than a passing interest in what Josh and Jessica are being “taught”. You just may find that the “wonderful university” they are attending is trying to turn YOUR students into Occupy-types.

And THAT is something the nation can simply NOT afford to have happen.

This screed has gone on quite long. Thank You, my kind readers, for sticking with it.

    I am in gleeful shock over MSU’s decision to can the asshat prof. A ray of hope ?
    But at UNC-CH, it’s par for the course (no pun intended). It would be sweet if McElhinny and Pavlich would do a freebie there (and help dispel the “Greedy Republican notion).
    Good post, Clyde.

  2. Hardnox says:

    Good post. Academia’s understanding of fair does not exist in the bubble in which they exist. Why else would many professors be tenured? I take it that Penn was not.

    Funny how liberal indoctrination wears off over time when mugged by life’s reality. The story of your three daughters illustrates that nicely.

    • Clyde says:

      Thanks, Nox. They’re not called “the ivory towers of academe” for nothing. Unfortunately, for the tuition payers, and taxpayers of Michigan State, the asshat has tenure. They have assigned him to “research” for the rest of the semester. Hopefully, the outrage will stay high in the repub-controlled legislature, and THEY will find a way to summarily boot his ass to the curb. As to my daughters, they’ve been paying for their Obama votes through the nose. When they complain about it, I tell them elections have, like everything else in life, CONSEQUENCES. It isn’t like I didn’t let them know what I knew about the BECS.

  3. Buck says:

    Slowly the closet door opens and the Marxist philosophy of so many “professors” is revealed.
    First it was the imbicile “professor” (whose name mercifully escapes me) in Colorado now this imbicile in Michigan.
    The requiring of a class to stomp on an American flag.
    The banning of Christianity on campus’ nationwide.
    The promotion of immorality and perversion.
    Sooner or later the American Mom & Dad are going to figure out that sending Junior or Sis off to 4 more years of education is no more than sending them off to a Marxist indoctrination camp.
    Maybe then they will not only demand a return to real education but will withold donations until it happens.

    • Clyde says:

      To “mercifully” answer your question, we’re talking about the faux Indian, Ward Churchill. Who, as I understand it, is NOT poisoning young skulls full of mush in a classroom, or lecture hall, anywhere. And THAT would be a GOOD thing.

  4. Kathy says:

    Good stuff, Clyde. It doesn’t take a PhD to see that education has long since fallen from the curriculum and politics is the subject of the day.

    Parents should forego the astronomical expense of sending their kids to these institutes of higher indoctrination and instead send them to a trade school and out into the real world, where they will receive a much better education at a much better value.

    • Clyde says:

      Kathy, I have NO problem with young people attending college. It is the damnable Marxism I find repulsive. Instead of parents salivating at cocktail-party bragging rights to Melissa, or Zach going to an Ivy-league indoctrination center, why not look at ALTERNATIVES, such as the GREAT Hillsdale College.

  5. Garnet92 says:

    Great post Clyde, on an extremely important subject. We wonder why so many academics supported Obama – it’s because they believe in the same leftist crap. And they’re in charge of educating our children and young adults – why are we surprised?

    Essentially, what we’ve got is a liberal assembly line – graduating new liberals every semester – feeding the beast of liberalism.

    If we can’t get a handle on our education system and stop that assembly line, we conservatives will be completely ignored ’cause we won’t have the numbers to elect leaders, the left can continue to elect the Ivy League-educated, never-had-a-real-job, law-degreed, snake-oil salesmen (or women), as they have for years.

    • Clyde says:

      Garnet, take a bow. Excellent comment. We have the problem NOW with the out-of-control revolving door from the WORST of the indoctrination centers straight to government, and secondary education. That has to change, along with the OVERWHELMING media support of the most vile of leftists.

  6. Mrs AL says:

    Wow, Clyde. Great job here.

    From the Paper Chase, “The study of law is something new and unfamiliar to most of you — unlike any other schooling you’ve ever known before. You teach yourselves the law, but I train your minds. You come in here with a skull full of mush, and, if you survive, you leave thinking like a lawyer”

    Unfortunately, those who now “train minds” are more about indoctrination.

  7. For some reason, Jon McNaughton and his painting, “The Forgotten Man” comes to the fore of my mind.
