Harvard opposes free association for its students in the name of ‘inclusiveness’

Published

on

Do they still teach logic and rhetoric at Harvard University? Because their latest policy is what’s known as a “genetic fallacy,” imbuing the origins of something with a moral element.

Harvard is banning all “private, exclusionary social organizations,” known as “final clubs,” as well as sororities and fraternities. This apparently because they don’t want students to find like-minded people who share things in common with them, and they don’t like free association guaranteed by the Constitution.

From the Boston Globe:

“Time after time, the social organizations have demonstrated behavior inconsistent with an inclusive campus culture, a disregard for the personhood and safety of fellow students, and an unwillingness to change — even as new students join them over generations,” the [faculty committee] report said.

In order to maintain an “inclusive campus culture,” Harvard just threw out 100 years of off-campus social organizations, threatening students with expulsion if they leave the liberal re-education camp enclave on the Charles River.

Sounds pretty inclusive to me.

The policy applies to all “private, exclusionary social organizations” but the committee acknowledged its main target are seven all-male final clubs, many of which have wealthy endowments and own off-campus mansions in Harvard Square.

Listen, Harvard is a private university. They can do as they please to their students. They can turn the whole place into a barbed-wired, guard-towered, ideological prison and charge $75,000 per semester to house their inmates. The degree is worth something, but maybe it will be worth something less after this freedom-grab.

They should ask Mizzou how catering to ultra-liberal academic fascists helps enrollment. But Harvard likely won’t care. They’ll just claim they’re more “exclusive” than ever while remaining fully “inclusive.”

I think Harvard should just declare itself a “private, exclusionary social organization” and ban itself. Or perhaps they should just let anyone attend and become truly inclusive.

But that would be too logical and consistent.

Whoopi is right about the behavior of UCLA Basketball players in China

Published

on

Whoopi Goldberg

I’m not a big fan of Whoopi Goldberg, okay but I have to tell you that I agree with her regarding the following statement.  This is in regards to a couple of UCLA basketball players who thought they could take something from a store in China and not pay for it.

You embarrassed your families, you embarrassed the country, and you embarrassed the president. Now I’m not a big fan of the president, but the fact that he had to call and get your asses out of there is not anything to be proud of or think is cool.  If this isn’t the stupidest thing a young person has done, particularly if you’re over six-feet tall, and black… is this just the ridiculous stupidity of youth?

Let me add one more thing. You’re an embarrassment to UCLA itself, and their athletic department as well.  Now I am not a big fan of those who run academia, but if these jerks are given the right punishment, I shall give the university credit and praise for doing it.  All right UCLA, the ball is in your court.  Do something right for once.

Whoopi Goldberg to ‘Stupid’ UCLA Players: You’re Fortunate Trump Could ‘Get Your A**es Out’ of China

http://freebeacon.com/issues/whoopi-goldberg-ucla-players-fortunate-trump-get-out-china/“Now, you’re in China—you’re this big!” she said, reaching high into the air to indicate the players’ height. “It’s not like you’re gonna blend, you’re not going to blend in, run out.”

Goldberg said their families and mentors had no doubt told them numerous times not to do things like this, and she said the foolishness of youth is the only explanation for something so dumb.

Alternative Math: This satirical look at America’s education craziness is sadly too real

Alternative Math

2+2=4. This is fact. Unfortunately, we’re heading towards a society that is so politically correct, we have to take into account feelings when it comes to facts. That’s the point of this satire by Ideaman, and it’s completely ludicrous…

…except that it’s no longer out of the question. With things changing so rapidly, can we really expect a scenario like this never playing out in the real world?
