Heather Mac Donald sums up the silliness of college perspectives on diversity

Published

on

From the beginning of this 3-minute video, Heather Mac Donald tears apart progressive dreams and leftist talking points with the skill of a word surgeon. She’s an attorney, but she’s much more than that.

Her take on the plague of university student perspectives on diversity is classic. Here’s her opening line to the question.

“They define it by the trivialities of gonads and melanin, and now the various gender identities that are being rapidly crafted by desperate students who are finding it’s getting harder and harder to be transgressive and get your own personal bureaucracy to cater to your delusions about being oppressed.”

It only gets better from there.

When Heather Mac Donald gets started, she’s an unstoppable force of clarity and an immovable object of common sense. Even Ben Shapiro could only drop the question and get out of the way as she went to work. What do colleges get wrong about diversity? Watch.

PragerU: Do college students support abortion or life?

PragerU Do college students support abortion or life

Progressive indoctrination centers, better known as American universities, have been pushing students towards a leftist worldview for decades. One might start believing the mainstream media narrative that college students are overwhelmingly pro-abortion based solely on other things we’ve seen coming out of college campuses.

PragerU tackled the issue. While nothing in this video will shock anyone, it’s a good cross-section of perspectives that likely reflects what’s actually going on at universities like UCLA. Will Witt went there and found the standard answers on both sides of the board. While the majority were pro-abortion, two pro-life students were found. Their responses were clearly more thought through than the answers given by their pro-abortion counterparts.

This leads to my next article. I’m starting to believe that if people are given all the information about abortion, and more importantly about the life attributes of preborn babies, they’d be more willing to accept a pro-life perspective.

Of all the challenges facing America today, the abortion issue is the most directly tied to life and death, literally. A world without abortion can only be achieved when we’re willing to have the conversations with everyone regardless of their current stance.

Counterbalancing the fire-hose of Leftist propaganda

Counterbalancing the fire-hose of Leftist propaganda

A study confirms the extreme bias of the national socialist media and what you can do about it.

A study just released from the MRC should only confirm what is already understood to be the case. The national socialist media is horribly biased against the pro-liberty right and the president in particular.

Since January 20, 2017, the Media Research Center has analyzed every moment of coverage of President Trump on the ABC, CBS and NBC evening newscasts, seen by approximately 23 million people each night. Highlights:

The tone of coverage remains incessantly hostile: 90% negative, vs. just 10% positive (excluding neutral statements), matching the historically bad press we documented in 2017. Yet despite the media’s obvious disapproval, public opinion of the President actually improved slightly during 2018, from an average 40% approval on January 1 to 42.7% approval on December 31, according to RealClearPolitics.

[Our emphasis]

This is how the insanely biased Leftist media has a pernicious effect on our society. This explains how some actually think that the historical scam of socialism is a workable system of government. Or how there is a panic over the onset of Global Cooling.. Global Warming.. Climate Change to the point that we somehow need a ‘Green new deal’ of ideas that aren’t even ‘green’ or new. This is how it’s become acceptable in some circles to jettison basic civil rights because of some perceived ‘epidemic’ in ‘gun violence’.

Pushing back on the Overton window.

We are dealing with a phenomenon of once outrageous ideas becoming mainstream. Concepts that only a few years ago would have had people protesting in the streets are accepted with almost quiet resignation. This has been labelled the ‘Overton window’ where a constant drumbeat of Leftist lies and propaganda have altered the perception of acceptable policy agendas. This was exemplified in a recent article about the state of Oregon wanting to institute extremly strict laws on Liberty. The piece causally refereed to government control of private property almost in passing:

A bill that would increase firearm regulations in Oregon is a reminder that states have vastly different gun laws.

In Idaho, for example, you can purchase a gun from a private owner without going through a background check. In Oregon, background checks are required for all sales.

Never mind that practically everyone – Academia, Vox, even the director of Everytown – has admitted that Intergalactic Background Checks [Universal, enhanced] will not have any value aside from setting up the nation for the next step to confiscation: Registration.

In the battle against the ever encroaching authoritarian Left, we need more voices instead of more regulation. Leftist media sources will continue to discredit themselves spewing narrowly focused propaganda. Some may wonder why they don’t talk about the treatment of ‘marginalized’ groups overseas or similar issues they consider to be critical in the states. The answer is simple, they have a specific focus and agenda that cannot be distracted by these and other problems. This is why it is critical that people have sources such as the NOQ report that don’t carry those agendas. This is why we desperately need your help.

The national socialist media will hopefully become less and less effective at selling the Left’s authoritarian agenda, but they are still able to sway the opinion of many. That is why is it critical that we have voices that act in opposition to its outrageous propaganda.

Imagine a college system that didn’t force students to take worthless classes

Imagine a college system that didnt force students to take worthless classes

There’s no such thing as a worthless class. That’s the mantra of America’s higher education system. But perhaps what they’re really saying is there’s no such thing as a class that doesn’t cost students more money. That makes more sense.

What if students weren’t required to take elective and core classes in order to get their specialized degrees in the fields they’ll actually use in their life? Could cost of education go down? Could time spent in college instead of contributing to the real world go down? Would students be better prepared because their minds were filled with relevant information instead of the superfluous garbage they’re forced to ingest as part of their college experience?

The answer to all of these questions is “yes,” and therein lies the problem. Colleges don’t want the cost of education to go down. They dont want students spending less time in college and more time in the real world. They definitely don’t want their students getting specialized education in their field of choice without the other garbage they want to feed them.

Why? The obvious answer is money, but it’s deeper than that. The reason Belmont University offers a course called “Oh, look! A chicken!” is the same reason Santa Clara University offered a course called “The Joy of Garbage.” In these and so many other cases, universities are given a broader scope and greater opportunity to indoctrinate students into their progressive worldview. It’s institutionalized brainwashing on-demand and at-will.

If American colleges offered degrees that gave students everything they needed and nothing they didn’t need, the experience would be shorter and the students would be better prepared for the world. Both goals go against education’s higher purpose, at least in the minds of leftist college administrators.

This excellent video by FEE breaks it all down nicely in two-and-a-half minutes and it doesn’t cost a penny to watch it. Imagine if colleges used that kind of educational economy. Students might actually learn something while they’re there.
