A Leftist-Islamic Alliance

By Arnold Ahlert · Jan. 13, 2015

The twin massacres in Paris were, according to the perpetrators themselves, payback for blasphemy. In other words, Islamists believe in the“right not to be offended.” If that sounds familiar, maybe it’s because the American left believes exactly the same thing. The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education’s (FIRE) latest report reveals that of the 437 colleges and universities they surveyed, more than 55 percent maintain what FIRE refers to as “red light” restrictions on free speech. In 2012, FIRE president Greg Lukianoff offered examples of those “speech codes,” noting that they may consist of restricting speech that“feels offensive,” “demeaning,” that which will “discredit the student body” or any language deemed to be “abusive, indecent, profane or vulgar.”

And that’s just a small sampling of the official stances taken by colleges themselves. As revealed by Healther Mac Donald, "microaggressions,“ a laughably pathetic concept defined as "a form of unintended discrimination…depicted by the use of known social norms of behavior and/or expression that, while without conscious choice of the user, has the same effect as conscious, intended discrimination,” has become entrenched on college campuses as well. Thus one no longer has to make a conscious effort to offend. As long as someone else feels offended, it is more than enough to engender criticism, or as Mac Donald chronicles, the sacking of a 79-year-old UCLA college professor for creating “a toxic, unsafe and intellectually stifling environment at its current worse (sic)” in his classroom – according to a “Day of Action Statement” written by “Scholars of Color.” Read More....

My Take - Would someone tell my why we fund these institutions? They destroy us with our own values, while adopting whatever value is the philosophical flavor of the day, and those values only have two things in common.  The destruction of capitalism and the national moral structure based on Judaic/Christian values and principles, which they believe is the foundational structure to capitalism.  And for those who've spent any time studying Nazi philosophy under Hitler, you will recognize this as a common theme. 

 Socialist are always socialist, and socialists are always clueless!  Clever at minipulating the public but failures at history.

As a result there’s one value they fail to embrace. What if they were cut loose from government grant money and student loans -  how long would they survive if they were forced to be for profit institutions based on their performance? I really do think it's time they had the opportunity to experience the real world versus their hypocritical social tinkering that portends to deliver the world into a mystical utopia.   The way they act demonstrates a couple of things.  One, they must have never in their lives read a history book, or they refused to believe what they read.  Or, they have consciously adopted a Procrustean solution, where–in they only read those books that fit their preconceived views.  Either way, they’re dumb as dirt and it’s time they were cut loose from the public’s purse strings.
