Data Point: Diversity on colleges only goes skin-deep

by Skip May 5, 2018

Emphasis mine: A new study shows liberal bias on campus by the numbers, revealing a startling gap between Democrats and Republicans among college faculty. Nearly 40 percent of the colleges surveyed had zero professors who identify as Republicans. Using a sample of 51 top-ranked liberal arts colleges, the study looked at 8,688 full-time, Ph.D.-holding professors and found that […]

by Skip February 6, 2018

Hmm, shouldn’t that have been: Days away from Winter Olympics, U.S. Olympic Committee worries Team USA isn’t going to win enough? Isn’t that its purpose – is to win? Has the US Olympic honchos decided that political correctness/diversity ideology trumps meritocracy? Jus’ askin’ (H/T: The Blaze)

by Steve MacDonald January 20, 2018

Joseph Asch, writing at Dartblog, exposes the fraud of the diversity and inclusion movement in his analysis of a letter by former Dartmouth Provost (and current English Professor at same) Carolyn Dever. Dever penned a missive published at Fosters.com in which she laments the Granite State’s lack of diversity and the horrible future it portends. Irony, that […]

by Skip January 7, 2018

Once again, it goes back to measurement – surprise, surprise (after the jump): SHOT: We need more diversity because MORE ADMINISTRATION!!!! Read through the official DEI materials and you soon feel overwhelmed by inspiring platitudes and glossy pictures of smiling minorities. As I noted in an earlier Michigan Review article, the administration has a nasty […]

The Disingenuous Misrepresentation of Free Speech

by Steve MacDonald January 4, 2018

“Paint me” like one of your Trotskyite ‘girls.’ “…from time to time, American colleges and universities are subject to witness hate speech or activity that is disguised as free speech. Such has been the case in recent weeks at several colleges and universities in San Antonio and throughout Texas. As members of the Higher Education Council […]

Notable Quote – Chan Eddy

by Skip December 4, 2017

On the Cultural Marxism that is known as “diversity”: All of the crap about ‘diversity”, be it cultural/racial/sexual and the whole list of other ‘diverse’ pigeonholes the Progressives have created, has been pushed so hard as a means of tearing people apart by making everyone a victim, except for white heterosexual males of course. We […]

Feeling Virtuous About Diversity is More Important Than [ Blank]

by Steve MacDonald November 6, 2017

Here’s a quick two-minute sample from my segment on Giard at Large this morning. I reach into news-cycle antiquity, about a week back, to grab a phrase from Tucker Carlson that speaks loudly about diversity and the professional left. The longer (better sounding) edited version will be available later today as will a link to the […]

Time to Ask Your Legislators to Protect Free Speech in the UNH System

by Steve MacDonald September 17, 2017

The recently released UNH Interim Report Presidential Task Force on Campus Climate is not about the weather, but it does involve snowflakes. Let me drop one on your tongue so you can get a taste. “UNH must develop a sustainable inclusive campus climate and make diversity and inclusion integral to a 21st-century education where we […]

Amherst College Republicans taunted with ‘KKK’ flyers

by Steve MacDonald September 11, 2017

If there was ever such a thing as a hate crime could this be that? The first Amherst College Republicans meeting of the year was targeted by flyers taped to the windows of the meeting space saying, “THIS IS OUR CAMPUS, NOT THE KLAN’S.” The group claims on its Facebook page that “while the flyers are related […]

Indoctrination and Free Speech

by Steve MacDonald September 11, 2017

This morning on Girard at Large (part one of two) Rich and I discussed the leftward decline of SNHU, the search for a higher Ed solution that doesn’t come with as much social justice baggage (indoctrination boot camps), and how some schools obsessed with progressive “diversity” indoctrination find themselves losing money from declining enrollment.

Unity Shmunity

by Scott Morales August 13, 2017

In one of my favorite podcasts “Mad Dogs and Englishmen”, Kevin D. Williamson said something that I’ve been thinking about for a long time but could never quite get out very well. So, of course, Kevin being Kevin, voiced it in a much more succinct and intelligent way than anything I would have come up […]

What Happened at Evergreen College Is Just Another Step In the Journey to the Promised Liberal Utopia

by Steve MacDonald July 14, 2017

If you want to make an omelet you have to breaks some eggs, so the saying goes. That’s true for the progressive utopia too. But what they don’t tell you, what they can’t tell you, is that before they deliver the promised harmony and unity and self-awareness of a centrally planned economic caste system from which you […]

Evergreen State College Could Be Swirling the Drain (And There was Much Rejoicing)

by Steve MacDonald June 10, 2017

Evergreen State College has been SJW moonbat central for the past two weeks, where the inmates have taken over the asylum. The public state college near Olympia has become a national caricature of intolerant campus liberalism in both The New York Times and Fox News. At least one professor has been harangued and classes disrupted by shouting […]

What Could Be Worse Than “Left Handed Albino Lesbian Studies?”

by Steve MacDonald June 1, 2017

Whenever the topic of useless, unproductive university social justice majors raises its angry little un-diverse head, my go-to parody is “Left Handed Albino Lesbian Studies.” It is both absurd sounding and obscure. It makes no difference if there even are any left-handed albino lesbians because somewhere in the White Tower they would make space for a […]

Is Free Speech Doomed at UNH?

by Steve MacDonald May 17, 2017

UNH, like most universities, is weighted down by diversity curricula and all the anti-free-speech BS that goes with it. This handicap culminated in the very public unmasking of the  UNH Bias-Free Language guide that, among other things, suggested the word American might be problematic. National attention motivated UNH President Mark Huddleston to release a statement claiming […]

The Problem With The ‘Science’ is That It’s Not About Science

by Steve MacDonald April 24, 2017

From Jonathan Wells at Stream.org March [for Science] organizers say “our diversity is our greatest strength.” They say “a wealth of opinions, perspectives, and ideas is critical for the scientific process.” But they don’t really mean it. Their passion for diversity extends to race, religion, nationality, gender, and sexual orientation, but not to opinions, perspectives, […]

The University Diversity Scam

by Steve MacDonald December 8, 2016

The University of New Hampshire is always begging for taxpayers to backstop its budget. We can’t promise we’ll keep tuition down, UNH insists, without your help. This from the ‘culture’ that pays $17,570.00 for a cafeteria table. UNH is also ranked number one for students with loan debt after graduation, mostly because the cheap loan […]

Why not, I did the vast majority of my business travel in coach?

“It is tough to ask a guy to travel coach…” So why should a political hack or flack get first class handling?  There mere statement of that line should tell us plenty about those that would spend other peoples’ money.  Seriously, what is the thinking that a public servant shouldn’t ride with the commoners who pay […]

Everything the Left Supports, Defends, or Does Should be Filtered Through this Context

Everything the left supports, defends, or does should be filtered through this context. Emphasis mine.      “The chief appeal of war to social planners isn’t conquest or death but mobilization. Free societies are disorganized. People do their own thing, more or less, and that can be downright inconvenient if you’re trying to plan the […]

  I think the Department of labor needs to investigate the hiring and promotion practices at the Huffington Post.  There is an obvious ageist, sexist bias in force here. As for “diversity,” I do see BOTH blueberries and strawberries.

The Left Doesn’t Care About Race

by Scott Morales February 6, 2016

… or gender or sexuality and never has. Despite the preening sanctimonious chest thumping and general clamoring on about how the Progressives, Left, and Democrats are all for inclusive diversity (as they see it, I.e. diversity of race, gender, sexuality etc) above all else, it’s just a lie.  The Progressives and Left are just like […]
