We live in the Age of Stupid.

The Coming Campus Revolution

We may be seeing the beginnings of a full-blown campus revolution. Not a revolution based on actual oppression, but a revolution stemming from perceived oppression and a desire to attain victimhood status.

The seeds of the revolution sprouted in full force this week, with protests at Yale and the University of Missouri. At Mizzou, students began protesting alleged incidents of racism. In addition to whatever true allegations there might be, false ones have contributed to the mass hysteria, as when Mizzou’s student president was forced to retract a Facebook post informing students that the Ku Klux Klan was on campus.


College students today, upon learning about systemic oppression of the past, are looking for a way to create their own movement, to belong to something bigger than themselves so that they can look back someday and say they were a part of something. The problem for them is, the sexual and racial discrimination of the ’50s and ’60s no longer exists, so they have to invent or exaggerate claims in order to make it seem as if problems are widespread.

Mizzou Demonstrators Segregate White Allies to Form ‘Black Only Healing Space’

Student protesters at the University of Missouri asked white supporters to leave Wednesday night in order to create a “black only healing space.”

Steve Schmidt, an activist who was at the protest, tweeted that Concerned Student 1950 group were “asking white allies to leave.”

The Fiction of ‘Truth’

We live in a weary age of fable.

The latest Hollywood mythology is entitled “Truth.” But the film is actually a fictionalized story about how CBS News super-anchor Dan Rather and his “60 Minutes” producer supposedly were railroaded by corporate and right-wing interests into resigning.

In reality, an internal investigation by CBS found that Rather and his “60 Minutes” team — just weeks before the 2004 election — had failed to properly vet documents of dubious authenticity asserting that a young George W. Bush had shirked his duty as a Texas Air National Guard pilot.

The fabulist movie comes on the heels of the Benghazi investigations. An email introduced last month at a House Benghazi committee hearing indicated that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton — just hours after the attacks on the consulate that left four Americans dead — knew almost immediately that an “al Qaeda-like group” had carried out the killings.

Clinton informed everyone from her own daughter to the Egyptian prime minister that the killings were the work of hard-core terrorists. Yet officially, she knowingly peddled the falsehood that a video maker had caused spontaneous demonstrations that went bad.

Apparently, the truth about Benghazi clashed with the 2012 Barack Obama re-election narrative about the routing of al-Qaeda. For days, Clinton, U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice and the president himself likewise sold the fantasy of video-driven killings.


In another example of fantasy reinvented as reality, a Texas teen, Ahmed Mohamed, brought a strange contraption with dangling wires to class. He was promptly detained, understandably so in a touchy post-9/11 climate.


Subsequent fact-finding does not seem to dispel these untruths. Instead, what could or should have happened must have happened, given that the noble ends of social justice are thought to justify the means deemed necessary to achieve them.

The “60 Minutes” memos about Bush’s Air National Guard service were never authenticated. Everyone now rejects the myth that the Benghazi attack was a result of a video. Investigators proved that Michael Brown was not executed by Officer Wilson. Ahmed was neither a young prodigy nor a victim of bias.

But the legends are created and persist because they further progressive agendas — and the thousands of prestigious and lucrative careers invested in them.

“Noble lies” alter our very language through made-up words and euphemisms. In our world of fable, there can be no such people as “illegal aliens” who broke federal laws by entering the United States. “Workplace violence” is how the Obama administration described the Fort Hood shootings, rather than calling it terrorism. American servicemen who shoot and die in Iraq are not supposed to be called “combat soldiers.”

The enlightened ends of seeking racial and religious tolerance, equality of opportunity and political accountability are never advanced by the illiberal means of lying. What makes this 2016 election so unpredictable are fed-up voters — in other words, Americans who finally are becoming tired of being lied to.

Jesus Has Been Reimagined As A Trans Woman

There is a lot of cray-cray shit going on. Rape hoaxes and hysterias, racial hoaxes and hysterias, global warming hoaxes and hysterias, the list oges on and on.

But fear not, because I bring you tidings of hope.

The common thread in these stories is ascendant Leftism. It is no accident that many of them originated on college campuses. There is no area of modern society where Leftists have more power than higher education where they exercise hegemonic control.

On one hand you have a faculty and administration made up of some of the most radical Leftists in the world. These are people that will tell you that China and the USSR were not truly socialist. When you are to the left of Stalin and Chairman Mao, you are way out there on the left wing tip.

On the other hand you have college students who are young, idealistic, impressionable, sheltered, and stupid. This current generation of young people is the Special Snowflake Generation. Most of today’s college students at our top universities have been both sheltered and privileged since birth. They are putty in the hands of the faculty.

Our colleges and universities are protected enclaves where outsiders rarely enter. Unless you have a child attending there you probably don’t know much about what goes on at a school. Athletics doesn’t count, far more people could name the head football coach at Alabama than the top administrator.

As long as things stay in-house the administration and faculty can basically do as they please. But when a story begins to attract outside attention everything changes. Take these recent rape hoaxes for example.

Here is a typical pattern:

Boy meets girl. Boy screws girl. Weeks or months later, girl says she was raped. No police report is made. Boy gets screwed by college. Story attracts outside attention in courts and/or media. Boy gets unscrewed.

If the guy with the video camera had not been there the other day then no one outside of Mizzou would know who Melissa Quick is. The photographer would anonymous too. Nobody on campus saw any problem with what Quick was doing.

But when the video went viral the off-campus reaction was overwhelmingly negative. People were shocked at Quick’s behavior.

That’s why we should have hope for the future.

The whole country hasn’t gone mad, just some parts of it.

    FBI Director Comey was spot on about the Ferguson effect. Now it has spread from urban cities to colleges.

    Your post makes me want to cry. I hope the kidster doesn’t get brainwashed.

    When I was in college in the early 70’s, campuses erupted when Nixon bombed Cambodia. It was final exam time, and a group of students wanted the school to cancel exams. The chemistry department was the first to respond followed quickly by the physics department. Later in the day the math profs and the engineering department chairmen weighed in. All were in agreement. They respected the rights of the students to protest and applauded anyone who had the courage of his convictions to boycott final exams. They particularly wanted to be supportive of the students who were eager to see Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos firsthand as flunking out of school would result in the loss of a student deferment. We all showed up.

    “When I was in college in the early 70’s, campuses erupted when Nixon bombed Cambodia. It was final exam time, and a group of students wanted the school to cancel exams. ”
    When I was in College/Med. School in D.C. during the 60’s. IIRC, the only time that classes were cancelled was in 1968. The MLK riots got going Friday and by noon, the smoke from burning buildings was coming in the classroom windows; we were given the remainder of the day off. Classes resumed the following week with 14,000 troops in the city, sand bags, M60 machine guns, APCs on Penn. Ave., etc.

      One of the funniest conversations I ever heard was between my husband and another engineer we met socially. “My school never closed for snow.” “But my school paid fines to stay open on national holidays.” “I bet your school let students shut it down in protest, but my school didn’t.” It turned out they had gone to the same school. I had a really good laugh.

      But yes, people who didn’t live through the 60’s and the 70’s have a very romanticized view of what actually happened. Most of us who were in college got up every morning and went to class no matter what else was going on. We once figured out how much each class cost per hour and how much money we were wasting if we didn’t show up. It was sobering. I have to believe that much the same thing is going on today. While some of the students at the University of Missouri were sitting around commiserating about how awful their lives are, most of the young people had their fannies parked in desks learning about partial differential equations and the root causes of the Hundred Years War. As long as the snowflakes don’t shut down the school for everyone else, let them have at it. Eventually, their generation will have to figure out it’s all about keeping the trains running on time, too.

    A 9-year-old Florida boy could face sexual harassment charges for penning love notes to a girl in his class, his furious mother said.
    The tiny admirer gushed about his crush, telling her she’s “pretty and cute” while boldly revealing his feelings for her in the handwritten loose-leaf letter, ABC Action News reported.

    “I like you,” the Tampa fourth grader in the Hillsborough County Public Schools district wrote inside a heart drawing. “I like your hair because it is not sloppy. I like your eyes because they sparkle like diamonds.”

    He wound up in the principal’s office for “inappropriate” and unwanted letters. There, he was threatened that if he did not stop, they would get police to charge him with sexual harassment.

    Oh, and the New Lunacy continues with a “Million Student March,” over Something, Because Reasons.

    Lots of updates there — now the president of Claremont University has resigned, too, and an Asian girl was “silenced” for pointing out that black people can be racist, too.

    I wonder if these other people feel “Safe,” or if feeling “Safe” is now a privilege only to be enjoyed by our hard left wing lunatics.

    Cray cray.

    • leslie says:

      It is so discouraging reading these posts.
      And where did a 9 y/o learn to write,

      “I like your hair because it is not sloppy. I like your eyes because they sparkle like diamonds.”

      How beautiful.
      I hope he saves those words for someone who appreciates them.

    So if we bring back segregation, these kids will feel safe and i can walk down the street and not worry about a knockout game? sounds like a win-win

    Evidently, there are still a few smart people left in the world ..
    A judge used Taylor Swift song puns to dismiss a case against Taylor Swift

    In her dismissal of the case, District Court Judge Gail Standish borrowed words from Swift’s songs “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” and “Blank Space.”

    “At present, the Court is not saying that Braham can never, ever, ever get his case back in court. But, for now, we have got problems, and the Court is not sure Braham can solve them,” she wrote.

    She continued, “As currently drafted, the Complaint has a blank space—one that requires Braham to do more than write his name. And, upon consideration of the Court’s explanation … Braham may discover that mere pleading Band-Aids will not fix the bullet holes in his case. At least for the moment, Defendants have shaken off this lawsuit.”

  14. Venus says:

    I read that black students at Mizzou are demanding “safe spaces” for blacks only — no whites allowed.

    So now progs WANT segregation and are AGAINST sex and free speech.

    The prog faculty are reaping what they’ve sown.

  15. 49erDweet says:

    That diddley dadburn Neil Cavuto was NOT supposed to ask that brilliant student spokesperson anything harder than “What’s your sign”? He needs to be punished.

  16. Somebody says:

    Well it all certainly is a new brand of crazy. It would stop in a NY minute if the press wasn’t part and parcel of advancing the agenda. If the majority of the press pointed out the idiocy of this stuff it would wither away. The protesters wouldn’t be getting the media attention they desire and the academics would chasten at the criticism of the media elites……problem solved, game over. Unfortunately we no longer have a press, we simply have multiple propaganda outlets.

    BTW Klown I can answer your Alabama questions without looking them up. The president of UA when my daughter was there was Judy Bonner, she was just replaced by Stuart Bell, the chancellor is Robert Witt. I get what your saying though because the truth is I can name head coaches, athletic directors, and many assistant coaches for UA going back to the 1960’s. I could probably name several past presidents, but honestly only 4 pop out in my brain when I think about it. OTOH I could tell you all sorts of things about past coaches, their win/loss records, most of their spouses names, blah, blah.

  17. DeniseVB says:

    If the crybullies want a summer of rage, go for it. That helped get Nixon elected in 1968.

    I hear the new President of U Missouri is a pretty radical guy himself. I think I’d be transferring my kid out of there next semester.

    Before I retired, I was the STEM curriculum coordinator for an international online high school, and I taught an online graduate level college course. While online learning is not yet perfect, it offers a lot of advantages for both teachers and students. At the college level it eliminates the need for a brick and mortar campus, does away with college level sports and student activity centers, and completely democratizes the classroom. No one’s racial identity or even their gender needs to be part of a student’s profile. The costs savings could be dramatic. At the moment most online learning is tied to brick and mortar establishments so online students are helping to subsidize students on f2f campuses, and colleges usually charge the same per credit hour no matter how the class is taken. If the cost of maintaining the brick and mortar campuses is eliminated, the savings could be astronomical. The big losers in the transition to online learning are the administrators. We ran a high school with teachers and thousands of students located on every continent except Antarctica with 12 full-time administrative employees, which included the 3 people who managed the computer network and the receptionist who answered the phones.

    I see the current climate on college campuses as an impetus for the expansion of online learning. There is no safer space for learning than your own home. If the cost savings are passed onto students, it will make the level of student loans needed for most people to attend college drop dramatically. Students will be able to bend their hours devoted to college around work and family responsibilities much more easily when they can time-shift their classes opening doors for a lot more people to learn. A lot of opportunities exist already. What’s missing is the recognition that an online degree is as valuable as one earned in a brick and mortar school, but that will come.

    I also see a bigger future for cluster class certification in subjects where a student completes a programmed group of courses that will prepare him to begin working in a field before a degree program is completed. Rather than an unpaid internship, a person could begin to look for a paying job in the field. This is already happening in fields like software engineering where technical skills are more important than an actual degree. The student works at degree completion while actively employed. Students will once again be able to work their way through college.

    If college campuses erupt to a point where they aren’t “safe spaces” for the people who are going to school to actually learn, the appeal of online learning will become more universal. As more teachers who aren’t tied to the traditional methods of teaching enter the field directly into the online environment, online teaching will become more innovative than it is now. Most traditional college professors who are tapped to teach an online course try to take their f2f course and plop it on a server somewhere, but a prof who specializes in online teaching methods offers a course that usually feels quite different with lots of opportunities for teacher-student and student-student interactions. With a teacher freed from standing in front of a class lecturing 3 times a week, his time can be spent on other things. If lecturing is a part of the course, a lecture can be recorded once and used from even beyond the grave.

    Many top-tier colleges already offer a broad selection of online courses. Some places like MIT, Harvard, Georgia Tech, and Arizona State already have the course materials online for free. To get credit for the course and to have a teacher available, you need to pay them, but someone who just wants to become better educated can access the course w/o paying anything. If 2016 is the year our college campuses erupt into violence, many schools could become virtual learning centers with the flip of a switch. While I don’t want that to be the impetus that propels education into the 21st century, I’m watching with great interest how far school administrations will let the crybullies go, knowing it’s the traditional colleges, not the students, who will be the biggest losers. From a student’s perspective the only downside is the expectation that adulthood will once again begin at 18 because there will no longer be a four year vacation between high school and life. Many young people already experience that, but the fortunate students who have time to disrupt other people’s learning obviously have nothing better to do.

    Thanks for the soapbox space, Klown.😉

    • Venus says:

      I like your thoughts on the future of on-line learning, but I don’t like the idea of testing on-line. In other words, I think if on-line learning could be coupled with the actual tests being taken at a brick & mortar site (even if not the actual school campus, but conference room, etc in place where student is) then I could be 100% on board with it. I just can’t wrap my head around testing on line because it is just so easy for the student to “log in” and then have someone else take the test for him/her.

      • Myiq2xu says:

        I have some ideas on that. It would require a web cam, a thumbprint reader and some proctors. Not foolproof, but nothing is.

      • votermom says:

        That is done now with IT certifications. You pay a fee and schedule a test at an accredited facility.
        SAT & ACT testing is also done that way, with less schedule flexibility.

    • swanspirit says:

      How long until prior of completion of free courses counts in the real world? That would make life interesting as well.

    I haven’t read this thread yet and only watched the video. My first thought was back to the old movies when the Little Rascals would decide to put on a show. The Rascals were great and intelligent compared to this girl’s presentation. Did they pick her by a show of jazz hands?

    It is truly the height of stupidity to demand that either Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton ENFLAME and EMPOWER terrorists by publicly giving them credit for successful acts of terrorism. I feel the republicans pain that the democrats defusing credit for the terrorists actions regarding Benghazi possibly helped Barack Obama and the democrats in the ensuing elections. But inverting the agenda of elections vs undermining terrorism and bantering on and on about it for years is demonic.
    When a terrorist action happens under a republican presidency, and there have been dozens since the 80’s, the Republicans seem to empower the terrorists by giving them all the credit, which probably makes Cheney and his rich friends very happy as it means significant gains for their military stocks. You are being duped by the Republican war profiteers if you believe it is essential to puff up every act of terrorism that occurs under a democrat administration just because the republicans like to pump up the terrorists when they are in the oval office.
    As for the college campus expose you wrote, there have been false charges against white men on college campuses that seem to go viral on the college scene and after a lot of damage is done and several years later, are later revealed to have been false, and its possibly happening again..
