Chinese Cultural Revolution: Intellectuals and professors learn the error of their ways

Occidental professors to vote on giving students veto power over what’s taught in their classrooms and will undergo reeducation classes.

Presumably, we’ll soon see them toiling on the farms, helping a thousand flowers bloom.

We recognize and are inspired by the leadership of Oxy United for Black Liberation and their call for widespread institutional changes in the culture of the College. We affirm that Black lives matter and also affirm the broader ideals of social justice to which their call speaks. We recognize that the structural racism and other forms of oppression of the College violate our commitment to ensuring equity and excellence in our educational programs for all of our students. We also acknowledge that our collective inaction as a faculty body makes us complicit in the failures of the College to make our Mission a lived reality. For this we apologize for failing you, our students.

The students will get many of the things they want, if the full faculty body approves the Plan of Action. The resolution would mandate diversity and ally training for all faculty, beginning in January 2016. “We empower the Dean of the College to ensure compliance,” the plan reads.

The plan also obligates professors to place a much greater emphasis on topics relating to race and ethnicity—even if they don’t teach subjects that call for much examination of social or cultural issues. “All departments must incorporate issues of cultural and racial identity and diversity in their curricula,” the plan reads. Does all departments include mathematics? Physical sciences? I imagine that it does.

The plan calls for a microaggression monitoring system that would allow students to report faculty members for offending them. The plan explains that this is necessary to correct “power imbalances between faculty and students.”

    Wow…. how cool is that? We are witnessing the suicidal death of Occidental College in real time. I give the school 4-5 years tops before it bellies up. Just gotta wonder if ANY of the faculty members have even given a thought to job security.

      Black Lies Matter is a racist, terrorist organization, founded on lies, and glorified by the MSM. Michael Brown and Freddie Gray were criminal thugs and drug dealers, who made nothing of their lives and cared nothing for the lives around them. So why do their lives matter?
      By Jim Quinn:
      “The bullying tactics of the pampered participation trophy generation of entitled millennials, being misled by social justice warrior ideologues, is fueling a backlash by older generations who studied, worked hard, obtained useful college degrees, repaid their student loans, and didn’t use race, gender, or micro-aggressions as excuses when they failed. College campuses, which once championed free speech and free thought, have now become bastions of censorship, left wing ideology, suppression of opinion, shouting down of dissent, thought control, and subduing the rights of the majority for the benefit of an outraged minority who resort to violent rhetoric to achieve their outcomes.
      Institutions of higher education have become nothing more than glorified daycare centers for kids who never grew up, learned personal responsibility, or developed critical thinking skills. The feckless college faculty and administrators have allowed financial considerations to override learning, as the curriculum has been dumbed down to meet the degraded capabilities of their high self-esteem/low intelligence students. The reality of an increasingly brutal economic environment and high likelihood of war is about to crash headlong into the coddled, pampered, parent protected, iGadget, facebook worlds of millions of millennials.
      They will be nothing but cannon fodder for the Deep State unless they develop a backbone, start thinking critically about what is happening in this world, start dealing with reality, stop trusting the government to save them, and make a stand against the corporate fascist tyranny consuming our nation. The Peter Pan Syndrome, where people with the body of an adult but the mind of a child, increasingly dominate the landscape, as a larger number of supposed adults exhibit emotionally immature behaviors. The self-neutering of young men is the result of twelve years of feminist social engineering in government controlled public schools. The wussificiation is complete”.

    Seven years after the great orchestratof of capitulation made his famous ‘apology tour’, the enablers attempt to emulate that example. next, apologies by men for being, on average, taller and stronger than women. finally, turning over the reins of government to farm animals.

    What’s hilarious is that Oxy is already a Liberal cesspool, how much further left can they go? I guess we’ll find out.

    I believe that the original program was “Let one hundred flowers bloom…” In a world where ‘truth’ is whatever the children say it is, the difference is irrelevant, and calling someone’s attention to the distinction may not only be irrational, but also a micro aggression.

    Could this be the beginning of the end of the American university system? It’s already rotten beyond repair. An overpriced cesspool of indoctrination. Like Karl Marx himself, most college professors couldn’t survive outside the safe, warm cocoon of academia. Prior to the industrial revolution, natural selection would have already taken its course with these dysfunctional fools.

    When a diploma no longer means anything to corporatists (we’re pretty much at that point already, but the latest streak of infantile absurdism seems to put putting the final nails in the coffin of taking these institutions seriously)… what incentive is left to pay a quarter-million bucks for four years of adult day care?

    Some of the richest people in this country never went to college, or dropped out before graduating. And they seem to be all the better for it.

    Dude –

    If you make yourself a victim, a victim you will become. The only way to improve yourself is to take accountability for yourself. No one can do it for you. And contrary to “progressive” dogma, we are all different. And that is not a bad thing, that is a good thing. Find your talent and use it. We all have a talent. Even you.

    If your biggest problem in life is dealing with “micro-aggression”, a made up problem to excuse those who won’t make the effort to succeed, you have a very charmed life indeed. And until the little snot noses realize this, they are doomed to mediocrity.

    Slavery isn’t the problem. You have never been a slave, and you don’t know anyone who has been a slave. And you don’t know anyone who has ever owned a slave. The Jews were slaves. FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS!! Do you hear them complaining? Well actually, they complain about everything…EXCEPT SLAVERY!! They didn’t use it as an excuse. Let it hold them back. They worked hard, and went on to control Hollywood, the MSM, and the global financial system. If they focused on “micro-aggressions” and all this other nonsense, they would all be on welfare today. NO JEWS ARE ON WELFARE!! AND IT’S FREE!! That makes no sense, actually.

    But anyhows. Anyhows. My point is, no one “deserves” anything. No one is “entitled” to anything. The opportunities are there, if you want to grasp them. If you don’t, that’s fine. JUST STOP YOUR FRIGGING WHINING!!

    At least that’s what I think.
    Your Pal,
    Walt

    These students are just pawns in a much larger game. Their strings are being pulled by the same crowd that is yanking Obama’s. Follow the money!

      The JLG?

      • AusJayus

        JLG is irrelevant (see photos) as is the group and culture that got them started. We have all been programmed for 50 plus years into a way of thinking that will not allow us to see the truth (or especially to speak it unless you want to be shamed or face financial ruin). Yet,it is right in front of our noses every single day. They do not even have the decency to hide it. They flaunt it in their media and in every place they live.Their boot-lickers and apologists (i.e useful idiots) are everywhere. There is a reason our society is not functioning and this is not random chaos but it is something that was planned and is now paying off. This has been done many times before. Anyone who has ready any history knows this. Your generation was the first American generation to rebel against your elders and the old ways so you all have been indoctrinated the longest and in fact you all bear a huge responsibility for their rise and are a major reason we are in this mess. First, they fooled you all with the whole peace, love, drugs things. They made you doubt your faith and turned your religious holidays into what has become Black Friday. This in tandem with the women’s lib ( the de-balling of men and the pussification of society at large)and the affirmative action thing got the ball rolling.. They indoctrinated you all in the universities which they had already hijacked. Then, they got you all to worship money too. Money without morals (and with all the old standards and civility gone then morphed into this monster of a society we are living through today).You all were the first entitled generation! I guarantee you the older generation had good reason to think the way they did and America was once a much better place. Let me repeat. what was done. Your masters knew how to manipulate you. They took advantage of America’s innate sense of decency and shamed us into opening up our institutions that they then took over and completely remade into their image,.then they were polluted our culture, destroyed our families (feminist movement and entitlement programs) and then they shipped all the jobs from flyover country overseas and scooped up all of the assets. Does this sound like something out of a futuristic movie? Does this sound outrageous? It is outrageous but it is the truth. The future is now. I know you are smart too. Stop pretending that this is not true.

        Useful idiot
        In political jargon, useful idiot is a term for people perceived as propagandists for a cause whose goals they are not fully aware of, and who are used cynically by the leaders of the cause.

          “Does this sound like something out of a futuristic movie?”

          No. It’s more like deja vu all over again. You say the same thing every time you post. Like the new handle, though – is that something out of the 88 handbook?
