Emboldened Students Making More And More (Idiotic) Demands *Open Thread*

by

With the success of a few, disgruntled, misinformed students getting their way on the Mizzou campus, students at more institutions are making equally ludicrous demands based on little more than innuendo, ideology, and indoctrination.

Take, for instance, the attempt by students at Vanderbilt who are trying to get rid of a professor, Dr. Carol M. Swain, because she is, and I hope you are sitting down, a Conservative, Christian, BLACK woman.

How dare she?!

Ahem. So yes, the incredibly intolerant (and intolerable) students have a petition out to sully this woman’s reputation and career by making salacious, unsubstantiated, claims against her.
So apparently, Dr. Swain is allowed to believe what she wants, just not on campus, or where it might somehow offend these delicate children.

Wow. Honestly, it is a little hard to take these kids seriously, isn’t it? Except the Administrators are doing just that, so afraid are they of being labeled RACISTS.

For instance, you have the Mizzou Student Body President has already acknowledged he made up his whole story about the KKK on campus. And then there is thethe Mizzou Student Body Vice President who doesn’t think the First Amendment is so hot when it allows people to say things she doesn’t like, or that might hurt someone’s feelings.

And that is where we are now. No wonder Dr. Carson made the following claim on Megyn Kelly’s program Thursday night (h/t Facebook friend):

Yes, “infantile” is a good word for how these COLLEGE students are acting. And it is a “dangerous trend.” Holy smokes, Kids in kindergarten act better than this. Good grief.

And no wonder our neighbors from the North think we are not the brightest (though bear in mind this list was compiled before Canadians elected their own version of Barack Obama):

This is Canada’s Top Ten List of America’s Stupidity… Canada’sversion of David Letterman’s “Top 10”

10. Only in America …Could politicians talk about the greed of the rich at a $35,000.00 a plate campaign fund-raising event.

9. Only in America …Could people claim that the government still discriminates against black Americans when they have a black President, a black Attorney General and roughly 20% of the federal workforce is black while only 14% of the population is black. 40+% of all federal entitlements goes to black Americans – 3X the rate that go to whites, 5X the rate that go to Hispanics!

8. Only in America …Could they have had the two people most responsible for our tax code, Timothy Geithner (the head of the Treasury Department) and Charles Rangel (who once ran the Ways and Means Committee), BOTH turn out to be tax cheats who are in favor of higher taxes.

7. Only in America …Can they have terrorists kill people in the name of Allah and have the media primarily react by fretting that Muslims might be harmed by the backlash.

6. Only in America …Would they make people who want to legally become American citizens wait for years in their home countries and pay tens of thousands of dollars for the privilege, while they discuss letting anyone who sneaks into the country illegally just ‘magically’ become American citizens.

[…]

4. Only in America …Could you need to present a driver’s license to cash a check or buy alcohol, but not to vote.

[…]

2. Only in America …Could the government collect more tax dollars from the people than any nation in recorded history, still spend a Trillion dollars more than it has per year – for total spending of $7Million PER MINUTE, and complain that it doesn’t have nearly enough money.

1. Only in America …Could the rich people – who pay 86% of all income taxes – be accused of not paying their “fair share” by people who don’t pay any income taxes at all.

And only in America are our children being taught to think the 1% will be willign to pay for EVERYONE’S college education, forgive their debt, AND make it so they get paid a $15 minimum wage for on-campus jobs.

Yep, that is but some of the things espoused by Keely , one of the organizers for the Million Student March whom Neil Cavuto had on his program Thursday. This interview is making the rounds for a host of reasons. Watch it below, and you will see why:

One of my favorite parts was when young Keely said her parents and family would be more than HAPPY to pay more so she, and all other students across the land, could have a free college education, etc., etc. She then proclaims they are on a host of government subsidies.

Um, I am not mathematician, but doesn’t that mean that we, the taxpayers, who are already funding much of her education and her family’s living will be expected to pay even MORE if they start having to pay more? That is to say, it highlights yet another flaw in this young woman’s “logic.”

And yet another reason she, and those who think like her, must be “high as a kite” to think people, including the wealthiest in this country, would be happy shelling out NINETY PERCENT of their income! She mentioned millionaires – does she really think someone who works to make a MILLION dollars is going to be happy with just one hundred thousand of the time and energy they spent earning it?? Of course not! And why SHOULD they?! But hey – she did note if they had to give ALL of their money, that would be SOCIALISM, and that isn’t good. They can give NINETY percent and that is just fine, and still Capitalism, in her mind. Good grief.

This brings me to a Programming note. Sharyl Attkisson’s “Full Measure” will include a look at colleges:

[…] On some college campuses, it’s not a matter of ‘Speak no Evil’…it’s ‘Don’t Speak at All’. The trend of promoting the PC agenda, and how some say it’s not only destroying free speech, but the fundamentals of education. We’ll also hear from George Will who is top on the university “disinvited” lists. (Click here to read the rest.)

That should be an interesting and timely segment.

Oh, one other programming note for today. Gretchen Carlson will have Carly Fiorina on her show at 2:00 EST for those who are interested.

That’s it for me. I can take only so much of the stupidity that is rocking our college campuses. What’s on your minds today? This is an Open Thread.

    Looking For Meaning In A Starbucks Coffee Cup

    It was hard not to feel like an alien from another planet this week. To sum up the news, a presidential candidate was asked if he’d have aborted a hypothetical baby Hitler; students at an Ivy League university demanded the resignation of a professor for suggesting students ought to be allowed to choose their own Halloween costumes; and another presidential candidate is fending off claims that she wears a wig.

    Believe it or not, these are not the dumbest news items that made actual media headlines, however.

    That honor goes to a man in Arizona who was triggered by the absence of a cartoon snowflake on his favorite high-priced coffee.

      It truly is remarkable, isn’t it? The things the media comes up with to ask these candidates is truly astonishing.

      As for Starbucks, I am not that big of a fan anyway, there are other political reasons NOT to shop there, and usually only go if we are traveling and I don’t have my cappuccino machine with me (I use Peets coffee, roasted to order and mailed to me every 3 weeks or so. It is a far superior coffee, IMO.). So there is that…

    I am absolutely incensed by the lunacy of the University of MN Twin Cities students passing a resolution to not have a 9/11 Remembrance because it might offend Muslims and is possibly RACIST.

    WTH?!?!

    So, they don’t want to offend Al Qaeda?? Next will they stop any Holocaust Remembrances lest they offend Nazis?? Our nation was attacked that day, and THOUSANDS died at the hands of radical Islamists. And they are worried abt hurting the feelings of Muslims?? WOW. Check it out: http://www.campusreform.org/?ID=6974

    The one bright light in this article is that one student senator was clear abt why this was a bad idea, and the comments are good.

    Clinton Foundation, White House Celebrated CEO of ‘Secretive’ Biotech Company Now Under Scrutiny

    Both the White House and the Clinton Foundation have chosen to showcase Elizabeth Holmes this year, but her multi-billion-dollar blood-testing start-up is on the verge of unraveling due to serious questions over whether it has been misleading the public.

    However, positive press has come to a halt as the end of the year approaches.

    In the month since a Wall Street Journal exposé revealed that Theranos has been misleading both federal regulators and the public on the abilities of its own blood-test machine, the company has already seen its million-dollar deals with Safeway and Walgreens fall apart.

    Among the multiple findings in the Journal piece is that the machine used to test small blood samples was providing wildly inaccurate results, and that executives at Theranos attempted to hide this failure from the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services.

    I just read Guy Benson’s post over at Townhall. Cannot, simply cannot believe that even Donald Trump is grotesque enough to compare Dr. Ben Carson to a pedophile.

    Even Trumpkins must have some limits to what they will accept from this loathsome man!

      Maybe with those rules the Mizzou Tigers football team might have a chance to win. Thus far all they’ve one is one game and a win on campus against free speech and fairness.

        LOL, you said it, Marge! And I appreciate this levity now as they continue to raise the death toll in Paris.

        Geraldo is on now talking abt his 21 yr old daughter who was at the soccer match in Paris. I am not a fan of his by a long shot, but my heart goes out to him and his family at this time. She is safe for now, thank heavens, but he must just be beside himself with concern for his daughter until she is home safe…

      They just said there were just FIVE more explosions, unrelated to the previous attacks. This is absolutely horrifying…

    Is this the beginning of WW3? If so the whole western world including Russia better work together ad defeat this enemy.

    one person arrested claims he is from isis

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      Something has got to change, beginning with the attitude of this President and many Dems. Radical Islam is bound and determined to destroy the West.

  16. Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

    From the Breaking News site Helen provided: Intelligence sources say French border closed out of concern Islamic State may have infiltrated migrants flooding Europe. Recent intelligence warned of it – @JJGreenWTOP

    You don’t say. What is happening is HORRIBLE – and that cannot be overstated. But that they think ISIS may have infiltrated the Syrian refugees is exactly what many of us have been saying, and PRECISELY why we do not want them admitted here without being thoroughly vetted first.

    So, so sad…

    Pray for Paris………. and for the rest of us!

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      Thank you, Cuz’n. I appreciate it!

      And yes, isn’t that incredible abt the Student Body President? And apparently, he has been working with the Black Lives Matter crew. Shocking, I know. Ahem.

      And yes – pray for Paris indeed…

    Uhm, BLM is crying in twitter because the spotlight has been taken off their miserable whining.

  20. Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

    Meanwhile, it seems the Obama Administration has already started to let Syrians into this country, despite all of the crap that is arising in Europe, and the KNOWN infiltration by ISIS members (h/t Facebook friend): http://www.cbc.ca/news/world/syria-refugees-u-s-centres-1.3308576

  21. kenoshamarge Says:

    http://kogtraveler.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/03/applecart.jpg I suspect there will be some seriously upset apple carts this weekend.

    Obama made a remark on the same day as the Paris attacks that “ISIS was contained”.

    Ignorant college students prepare for their “Million Moocher March”.

    #BLM denigrates and attacks Police Officers at a time when most people will be thinking having a cop close by is a good idea lest some of the terrorists who have all ready infiltrated our non-bordered country decide to outdo Paris.

    It was a horrible day for Paris and the civilized world. No time to cry for the whiners.

    Do not think today’s state dept represents American values

    • kenoshamarge Says:

      The Kerry State Department is too busy kowtowing to environmentalists to care about people dying and being injured and being terrorized in the here and now. He, along with his idiot boss is worried about the Paris Green movement not the “red” of blood in the streets.
