Is Our Children Learning?


El Buffoon Muy Grande:

Hopefully They Will Grow Out of This

The only thing you can do when you see things like this is A.) wonder where the rest of the faculty are and B.) hope they grow out of it.

It does raise some interesting questions, though. Do the kids not realize they are also white, and should probably not be there because they are de facto violating the rules via their whiteness? And why are they mostly only interviewing only white kids. And third, when did snapping take the place of clapping, or is that just something else I missed?

At any rate, they are kids, and college is where they are supposed to do stupid things, so they are at least in the right place.

[…]

I guess if you are a Republican, and this is the face of the left to you, it could be problematic. I think the best lesson they could learn from this is not the message they are trying to send, but the organizational skills that can be later put to use rallying around more solid causes and discovering that when it comes to change, showing up is 90% of the battle. As long as they are not violent or actually get someone fired for no reason, just let them be, I say.

If you are the parent of college-bound kids this should terrify you. If your child(ren) is gonna receive a useless education why not send them to a local cow college? Why waste money you could spend in your golden years? Better yet, why not just send them to truck driving school?

BTW: John Cole teaches communication at West Virginia University.

Full disclosure: My Problem Child attended Evergreen. His ex-wife’s parents both teach there. He is about a semester short of a BA in Art. He bartended while he was in school, and he now owns a bar in SeaTac and does art as a hobby.

      By the way, was that police officer eager to be a standard bearer for lesbian law enforcement or was she just outed for liberals to score political points?

      • lyn says:

        I bet she was outed, but I think POTUS tweeted that he and Melania gave flowers to Crystal and her wife.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Happy to see this morning that Rep. Scalise’s been upgraded to serious from critical. He’s fighting for that beautiful young family of his ❤

    One of the main reasons for the Sahara creeping south is not global warming but, people stripping the soil of trees. They use them for fuel to cook with, but it denudes the land and turns it into desert

  2. SHV says:

    I suspect that “poor abused” Prof. Weinstein is a sanctimonious, virtue signaling SJW jerk who didn’t keep up with his revolution. I have as much sympathy for him as I would have for Robespierre, Trotsky, etc.

    • lyn says:

      Great comment!

    • gram krakka says:

      Karma is such a bitch! Progressives are eating their own. By the time the faculty lounge elites wake up it will be too late.

      University presidents should suspend and kick students out who interfer with those students who are serious about getting an education and their degree. Make an example of a few and maybe this would put a stop to this silliness.

      • DeniseVB says:

        I think a few presidents have done just that except we’ll never hear about them in the msm.

        I remember one entering a protest “safe space” and told them if you don’t get out of here I’m having you all arrested. Problem solved 🙂

  3. swanspirit says:

    Just dropping this here for all my friends here at TCH.

  4. DandyTIger says:

    And back to music 🙂

    • DandyTIger says:

      I don’t think she understands that every time she has these crazy emotional rants, Trump goes up in the polls. I hope no one tells her. I so hope the originator of “you didn’t build that” is who runs in 2020. Come on Warren, you can do it.

      • Lulu says:

        For being a such a manipulative mediocrity she has done pretty well for herself. Her timing is just off though as those such as her are being exposed. She reminds me of Hillary as a climber using men to get ahead and never acknowledging she climbed their backs. The ninnies don’t understand that she is a corporate lawyer shark getting the corporatists out of jams and she would sell her own mother for a nickel. The ‘fighin’ granny” she isn’t.

    • Constance says:

      Oh no. Another Naaaasssssty woman.

    • Jeffhas says:

      Her hair looks nasty… and dirty.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Why are lefty women so cranky and angry all the time? I’ve yet to find one with new ideas and inspiration that makes me want to listen to them.

  5. swanspirit says:

    John Cole, is not a professor, not even an assistant professor. He barely has a Masters degree. He is as me kind of instructor for an online course in communications.

      • Lulu says:

        I taught a government class at the local junior college once. The instructor quit last minute (or was indicted or something and skipped town) and they needed anyone witha pulse that had a masters degree in government. I taught civics in a prison once also. Am I a professor now too? LOL.

        • Propertius says:

          Just like that esteemed “professor” of constitutional law who was just evicted from the White House?

      • jenlyn says:

        I was smarter than my teachers in third grade I’m not bragging I’m just saying anyone can be a teacher professors even worse at the college level most of my professors were people that couldn’t make it in the real world they were lazy entitled arrogant vapid dictators. Many of them gave A’s to students who were ass kissers versus students who really excelled. In my senior year of undergrad I was triple majoring and double minoring I walked from the honors and I walked away from it all because of the way my University treated rape victims and I spoke out against what was a massive cover-up and continues to be and they stripped me of everything the funny thing is none of it mattered it didn’t matter to me then doesn’t matter to me now they were meaningless Awards and the only reason they gave them to me is because I started a national program which I’m not going to go into but anyway needless to say they were happy to strip me of everything. The thing about everything is when it’s given to you by idiots it doesn’t matter it was all a game then and it’s still the game now what really matters is what do you do with your life what do you achieve who do you help do you make changes are you happy. I follow some of the people I went to school with to see they’re the same ass kissing do nothing Pretenders and I wouldn’t trade a single day of my life for every one of their so-called Awards or honors. Most people who work and get up everyday raise their kids they’re good people are a thousand times smarter than the average professor and I went on and got a Juris doctorate and another degree and I’m just telling you the average professor I take a truck driver teaching me because at least he or she would have some real life experiences and be able to tell some truth about the world if you want to get smart read a whole bunch of books don’t listen to TV don’t listen to anyone and get out in the world and do and see it’s all there it’s wide open for us you just have to open your eyes

    • DeniseVB says:

      Just like “Professor” Obama, eh? Remember how that was rubbed in our faces in 2008….Constitutional Professor?

    • Lulu says:

      More fake news. This one was leaked out of the White House to make someone think Trump is losing it. He isn’t. Remember Kushner and Bannon were in a death match and going to be fired any second now. LOL.

      • DeniseVB says:

        When I see unnamed sources bleating out crazy stuff, my knee jerk reaction is FAKE ! In this case, yelling at the tv normalizes Trump even more. 🙂

    • Somebody says:

      Yelling at the TV, oh my perhaps we should worry. Why next thing you know he’ll be keeping a drone kill list in his desk drawer, oh wait.

    • Lulu says:

      Lauren seems to be a dumb fat Canadian. She is also very interested by subject in beer stores. I googled her.

  6. Propertius says:

    “As long as they are not violent or actually get someone fired for no reason, just let them be, I say.”

    As near as I can tell, they held the University President against his will (kidnapping? false imprisonment?), and waged a campaign of intimidation against a professor because of his race.

    This is why we have prisons, isn’t it?

    http://www.newsmax.com/FastFeatures/barack-obama-scandal-atf-fast-and-furious/2014/12/28/id/613434/

    Fast and Furious got people killed- dems have no problem with it.
    Bengazhi- got people killed – dems have no problem with it
    Clinton e-mail and leaking classified information – dems have no problem with it
    Lynch – Comey- cover up – dems have no problem with it
    Classifed leaks about Trump- dems have no problem with it
    threats and rioting – dems have no problem with it

    Trump gets elected by the people of this country – dems have a big problem with it
    Phony Russian interference in election story – dems start the story as an excuse for loss
    Comey get fired – dems start a coup d’etat with a special counsel
    Congressmen being shot at – dems have problem with after it comes out that by their words and deeds they instigated it.

    So what is the children learning from all this?
    We are living in interesting times

  8. helenk3 says:

    https://imprimis.hillsdale.edu/2016-election-demise-journalistic-standards/

    so what are our children learning about journalism and a free press and standards?

  9. Lulu says:

    Is our children learning? Yes. Mostly the wrong things but “children” are little sponges and pick up what is around them. This includes home, school and their friends.

    I have been interested in the psycho girl who just got convicted of murder for driving her boyfriend to suicide. The back and forth has been interesting. But I haven’t seen anyone take the issue as a theft. Murder is the theft of a life. She “stole” his self-esteem, mental health (already fragile apparently), his individual identity, his life. She is a thief. A nasty manipulative thief taking something that wasn’t hers. She latched onto a younger person, he was younger and weaker, and sucked the life out of him like a parasite. Which is what she is. Parasites who steal a life should go to prison. It really isn’t that much different than if she had simply drained out all of his blood over a period of time until he died. Or an adult who sexually abuses/rapes children. They steal something from another human being that isn’t theirs to take and use a power differential to accomplish it. She is a freaky, little, ugly ghoul and she will meet some bigger ghouls in prison. The judge (bench trial) saw right through her.

    • Underwhelmed says:

      Sing it, sister!

    • mothy67 says:

      Wow
      I have never read anything framed that way.
      My sister who is baby girl’s grandmother was married to a bad man. I never looked at what he stole. I didn’t see it in those terms.
      Babe is going to be 11. She thinks I am her immature little brother. I love it while I am an idiot I get to frame how she attacks me. I am letting her evolve. Make good decisions. I can allow her to think. I am truthfully an absurd individual.

      • Lulu says:

        Yes, they are thieves and parasites feeding off the misery, fear and dread of others, taking what is not theirs. Bullies, abusers, power-trippers all of them. They also try to convince victims that they gave that to them willingly which is also a lie because they STOLE it.

    • elliesmom says:

      While I agree with your assessment of the girl (this trial was in family court because she was a minor at the time), I’m not sure we want to criminalize what she did. What if a guy finds himself in a relationship with PsychoChick and wants out? She says “If you leave me, I’ll kill myself!” In the heat of anger he says, “Go ahead!” and walks out the door. She kills herself. Do we want him charged? One could argue his leaving caused her death. This young man was severely depressed, had tried suicide before, and lived at home with his parents. Aren’t they culpable, too? Why wasn’t he being more aggressively treated for his depression? Being more closely supervised? This is a sad, sad story, but I’m not sure we want her conviction to set any precedents.

      • Lulu says:

        I agree with all of your points but she seems to have been the only one encouraging it. Everyone else was discouraging it around him. Getting frustrated and ONCE saying go ahead and leaving a drama queen is not the same as draining a younger, more impressionable, socially dependent boy repeatedly of any will he had to overcome suicidal ideation. This judge saw the severe degree that she was employing and frankly abusing him and that it was for her own strange, malevolent and parasitic needs. She is an emotional vampire. She is a felon now and everyone is forewarned. I don’t want her to have a prison sentence. I want her to be a pariah.

        • elliesmom says:

          What if two teenagers have a suicide pact, and only one goes through with it. Do we charge the other one with a crime for backing out? This is such a can or worms.

          • Lulu says:

            If one backs out then one is faking it and manipulating the other one. I understand that there are a lot of screwy people, even very young ones, but we have to teach our children to avoid the creepy. manipulative, bored ones who come up with stupid shit like suicide pacts. You don’t give anyone that kind of power over you even if you are a little kid and they need to learn that from their parents.

    My son celebrated Father’s Day with his dad yesterday. We had a wonderful day just eating pizza on the deck and taking a stroll down Memory Lane. Our daughter will call sometime today. That’s about as much excitement as Elliesdad likes for “his day”.
    I hope all of the dads here get as exciting a day as they want, too.

    2008 I reregistered as Indy after being dim my whole life. I did not go rethug until I wanted and did vote for My President.
    8 years we has to deal. I kept meaning to burn down my home and town in protest but I am frightfully lazy. It takes hours to get ready.
    2017 I am moving to full on hate for dims. I find them so obnoxious. Tell me I keep aaking one thing DJT has done that makes you so upset
    My tiny brain is trained in literature. I love the constitution but am far from a legal scholar. The trolls on Althouse are falling apart. They keep fucking that chicken. I am not a real parent, but I learned early on with creep you win by being honest. I could put parental controls on phone but she was getting info from others. We are going to watch It today. I would rather not be living a summer of horror films. She is doing it with me. Ugh The Purge we both fell asleep.
    Anyhow the horror craze is the boys. I draw the line at the torture porn. No hostel no saw. All the kids love The Shining.
    I only see I small sample but what I get from the kids is sovfar from snowflakes. They are smartasses. Not give me special place so I can weep. They banned all depictions of Pepe. My nemesis Taylon is Vietnamese he was running around screaming pepe. Horror stuff is boys being boys.
    Anywho I will watch some horror with kid. Its what you do. I am not really her parent but I strive. I view the dims as really bad parents instead of watching horror they create.

  24. gram krakka says:

    Leader of The Band by one of my favorite male musical artists, Dan Fogelberg, expresses so well my belief on what parenting style is most effective. Leading by example works better with and for me than physical and verbal punishment. “His gentle ways of sculpting souls took me years to understand” inspires me to be a better person. My daughter said when my voice lowered and got slower she knew she was in big trouble. Telling her I was disappointed in the choice she made was much more effective than a spanking.

    My own father was a very stern disciplinarian. He was 45 when I was born and was such a perfectionist that my little clumsy hands and feet damaging his prize strawberries and vegetables was more than he could tolerate. I learned to stay out of sight to avoid his wrath. He died in a car accident when I was 15. Our conflicted relationship was never resolved while he was living. With the passage of time and retrospection I have come to an appreciation of him as a person as I learned more about his life prior to my childhood.

    • Jadzia says:

      A wonderful song and a touching post. I don’t know that I feel like I really had a dad; my parents split up when I was four and after that, I probably spent a grand total of about four months with him, and always not even staying with him but with my grandma instead. He didn’t want kids and didn’t really like kids, but he came through for me in college when I needed it most. Still, it was more of a favorite uncle kind of relationship. My stepfather never did like me much, I’ve spoken to him exactly once since mom died and i don’t think it will happen again.

      But more importantly, why is Netflix serving up nothing but Korean teen romantic comedies? How am I the target audience for this? Because they speak a little Chinese on Firefly?

      • gram krakka says:

        So sad that you didn’t get the love and support from your father and stepfather that is so important for a child’s development. That lack of closeness can make it more difficult to establish healthy romantic relationships as an adult.

        My first marriage to the full blown psychopathic turd was about escaping from my family situation. Fortunately my second marriage was to a wonderfully supportive renaissance-type man who encouraged me to pursue my own path. I really blossomed into a confidant woman. We each gave 100% to our relationship, but were free to be independent also. While I traveled for my job he took care of my daughter. He was very good to her and had her back when she needed help with school and social relationships. Tobacco addiction, lung cancer, took him from us 13 years ago, but nary a day goes by that we don’t reminisce and laugh about something he said or did. My grandson is named for him and has a few of his characteristcs even though they aren’t biologically related. I am fortunate to have had 25 years with a true soulmate.

    We all has one. If you are a daughter and clever on this site an old man might have assisted you getting here. I love my dad I also love my mom. Sharon is a bitch. I got my fight from her.
    Why do gay dudes argue with mom so much? I tell her to fuck off all the time. I even call her a crazy bitch. She is my hero, but still awful.
    Why do gay guys feud with moms? I never fight with my dad.
    Anyhow no one but this blog thought of me today.
    I do feel sad. A card. I got zip. Fuck it I am going to get drunk. I understand. I am not really a father. Kid does not see what I have done. She is a child.
    Need to offer a big Thank You to everyone here.
