    Shock Poll – Most UK ‘Students’ Infected With Red Nazism? 


    • Interesting story on the BBC last month, about how  Britain’s Universities Minister Jo Johnson has pledged to curb the Red Nazi storm-troop tendency in publicly-funded colleges.

    • ==
    • =
    • Johnson is surely correct to declare that “no-platforming”, the policy of banning controversial speakers, is stifling debate.

    =

    We have covered this issue before, on imbecilic intolerance in UK universities as far apart as Warwick…Warwick Wallies Weasel Out of War on Free Speech – For Now! and East Anglia  

    If anyone needs background on how Red Nazi censorship began ( in the 1960s) you can see what I wrote in Crack-Down Time In Canada – Smash The Red Nazis!  –  the problem of leftist intimidation is as big in Canada and in the USA as it is in The Old Country.

    If you’re already au fait with the issue, you’ll applaud Johnson’s speech, in which he recognised realities.

    “In universities in America and worryingly in the UK, we have seen examples of groups seeking to stifle those who do not agree with them…   http://www.bbc.com/news/education-42481329

    ======

    …We must not allow this to happen. Young people should have the resilience and confidence to challenge controversial opinions and take part in open, frank and rigorous discussions.”

    The BBC also offers some background on ‘no-platforming’ of people the uni-reds dislike but also on the moronic ‘safe space policies!’

    =

    “Safe space” policies are intended to protect students from views and language they find offensive, including discrimination.

    =

    BOO-BLOODY-HOO!

    No Platform is simply jackboot fanaticism…

    =

    =

    …a hatred of patriotic or conservative ideas, which the college commies cannot defeat in debate  – hence they want them silenced.

    But this ‘safe space’ slop?

    Pathetic!

    Smarmy little brats need to be PROTECTED from ideas?

    If they are THAT immature then they have no place in institutions of higher education at all.

    Best put them back in kindergarten, or a toddlers’ creche, where they can throw their tantrums under proper supervision.

    But this next part’s where my headline came from –

    In 2016, nearly two thirds of university students believed the National Union of Students was right to have a “no-platform” policy. That approach means people or groups on a banned list for holding racist or fascist views are not given a platform to speak on student union premises.

    First of all, it’s ridiculous that self-confessed marxists are allowed,  yet racists and fascists (designated as such by NUS retards, of course) are banned.

    =

    Communism has killed more human beings than ever the ‘fascists’ did!

    Even if a banned speaker chooses to show up dressed as Mussolini, why shouldn’t he or she be free to speak? Were Il Duce’s thoughts so grand that no undergraduate today can challenge them?

    More realistically, we have seen many examples of non-‘fascist,’ non-‘racist’ speakers, like spokespersons for UKIP, blacklisted by Red Nazis who call the shots in student affairs. That East Anglian example near the top of our page is one such.

    But who puts the red scum in charge of student unions?

    The ‘students!’

    The reds are elected by ‘students,’ in elections where all students can vote. The reds use ‘mass meetings’ to push through their infantile repressive resolutions, meetings at which every student is entitled to attend and vote.

    So that poll seems to be accurate.

    Most students’ are either complicit in Red Nazi intolerance, or, if not, too slack-brained to do anything about it.

    =

    Collaborators or creeps!

    ==============

    Maybe Johnson’ new Office for Students will preserve freedom of speech with its proposed fines for universities that don’t actively move against threats. They could even be suspended or deregistered.

    Or why not look at bolder ideas!

    Might be better to provide student services via the universities rather than the student unions. Then make union membership voluntary rather than  automatic. The student unions represent very little

      OMG, Ross, you are on top form today! So much of interest for us to read and enthuse over.

      I have relatives who are recent graduates and I have asked them why so many student unions are run by enemies of democracy. The answer is always the same, that they and most of their friends never have anything to do with union politics because they prefer to study or ‘have fun.’

      I am very glad our parents and grandparents did not prefer to ‘have fun’ when required to fight in WW 2.
      Those who came back from the war did study at universities, some of them, but appreciated their opportunities and were grateful to their country for them.
      Even those who ran the student unions then were interested in providing services.and kept politics out of it.

      There are some good young people around who do their best to oppose the bad marxist element, but nt enough.
      The college principals should expel anyone who wants to stifle free speech. If they are too stupid to argue and debate ideas they find ‘offensive,’ they should not be enjoying the privilege of education.

    Why Is Oberlin College Infested With Retards? 


     

    Not so long an outing as usual, a little lazy today, but time to hit Superindo supermarket on Jalan Panjang. Discounts on ice-cream (durian/choc flavour) and those nice big cartons of milk, about Rp.4000 cheaper than elsewhere.

    But the beer has been moved to the new shariah-lite section, a kind of sin-bin area away from the regular shelves. As if even seeing the stuff might subvert the morals of shoppers.

    • bintang
    • Still, there’s pork available. So not as bad as the Superindo in Meruya, where piggy products had been removed altogether last time I dropped by a few months ago.

    ==========================

    Anyway, home – via the warteg for a spot of lunch – just as twilight is starting to gather, and to an amazing story about a once-distinguished American academic institution, which is now evidently infested with retards.

    I know that PC twits don’t like that noun (which of course is why I use it)  but let’s use their left-lib lingo then, and describe these appalling asses as ‘people with learning difficulties.’

    =======================

    • ——————–
    • Speaking of appalling asses, here’s a picture of two ‘women’ students from the story, and they do indeed seem not only to be, but also to have such things!

    These lissom lovelies set up a ‘safe space’ for any brain-dead bints unable to cope with the horror of listening to opinions that don’t match their prejudices.

    • I reckon few normal students would enter such a sturdily ‘gate-keepered’ zone, but given the dull-witted calibre of the anguished protests – the morons can’t even spell ‘participant!’ – no doubt the muscular pair would not lack company. 

    Unlike the smartly-turned out and very smart conservative, Christina Hoff Sommers…

    …, whose mere appearance on campus caused something like nervous break-downs all over the place. And  for even better insights into these ignoramesses, try this link.

    The writer of that piece was present and tried to reason with one of the dorkettes. To no avail.

    God Bless America – An Unconstitutional Exhortation? 


    So now school-kids in the USA are bullied by staff whose delicate pink ears can’t stand to hear the awful words ‘God Bless America

    I’m no longer really shockable, but even so…

    Here’s the true story, believe it or not,

    —————

    nassau

    A Florida high school student has come under fire by administrators after an atheist group complained that ending morning announcements with “God Bless America” somehow violated the Constitution. Without taking time to actually learn the truth, the school capitulated to the anti-Christian bigotry group and threatened the student if he said it again. 

    …..Nassau County School District told the student he could no longer conclude morning announcements by saying “God Bless America” after receiving a complaint from the anti-Christian bigotry group American Humanist Association. It was then the school over-reacted and pulled the student aside for admonishment.

    The school says the student added the phrase in addition to the scripted announcements and somehow violated “Church-State separation laws” (which by the way, don’t exist).

    Read the whole sorry saga here – http://www.afa.net/action-alerts/school-threatens-student-for-saying-god-bless-america/

     …take note of the relevant extract from America’s Declaration of Indepedence ,here –

      Nassau County School Board would discipline those fellows who signed up to that shameless mention of the Creator, for sure!

    =============

    ….and then do something about it, here –

    As AFA concludes ...ask the superintendent to provide “remedial training” to all staff, advising them of the First Amendment rights and freedoms of students under the Constitution.

      I am not of their religion but I think the boy is right and the board is wrong. What normal people would punish a young man for asking God to look after his nation?
