For free speech at Macalester, the Devil is in the details

The president of Macalester College’s free speech manifesto simply reinforces the determination to preserve the campus’ Leftist intellectual monoculture. One wonders how many of the jubilant Berkeley students who bought into 1964’s Free Speech Movement would be shocked by today’s censorship. Probably “none.” It was always about Leftist re-education.[/caption] At [Read More]

A New Feminism For The 21st Century

Tammy Bruce is one of my favorite political writers, and a person of rare common sense.

American colleges — the un-educating of young America

A college student’s essay about ethnic food in America is a depressing window into the fact that American colleges don’t educate, they “un-educate.” Several hours ago, I sat down to write a post about religion and culture. I got as far as picking a title for my post when I [Read More]

Calling Christ a drag queen pedophile shows what’s wrong with academia

An academic article calling Christ a queer, pedophile drag queen reveals that modern academics know nothing about anything — and then teach it to our kids. I finally got around to reading the article about Holy Cross College professor Tat-Siong Benny Liew, who has some interesting ideas about Jesus Christ (whose resurrection [Read More]

The raw courage of an open conservative at UC Berkeley

Meeting representatives of Berkeley’s College Republicans in the Trump era, you learn that courage is not limited to men in uniform on foreign battlefields. In 1964, the Free Speech Movement came to the University of California, Berkeley. It began as a protest against Berkeley’s extremely strict rules regarding political speech. [Read More]

At UC Davis, does “diversity” discriminate against straight, white males?

UC Davis is a microcosm, demonstrating how the Proggie “diversity” racket discriminates against people based upon their race, sex, and sexual orientation.

Does BYU’s online high school gov class promote an antisemitic canard?

Am I overreacting to think that BYU’s online government class slipped in a gratuitous, classically antisemitic trope about Jews controlling foreign policy? I’ve written before about BYU’s online high school government class and, frankly, didn’t have much nice to say about it. It’s poorly written, poorly structured, and poorly informed. [Read More]

Reviewing Unit 1 of BYU’s online Honors Government class suggests it’s no better than the high school class; the only advantage is that students save time.
