Millennials: Communism sounds pretty chill

‘This report clearly reveals a need for educating our youth on the dangerous implications of socialist ideals’

In a Halloween tweet that’s since gone viral, Donald Trump Jr. jokingly (although who really knows these days?) took the opportunity to impart an important political lesson to his cute little daughter.

I’m going to take half of Chloe’s candy tonight & give it to some kid who sat at home. It’s never to early to teach her about socialism.

Perhaps he should share his wisdom with millennials.

According to the latest survey from the Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation, a D.C.-based nonprofit, one in two U.S. millennials say they would rather live in a socialist or communist country than a capitalist democracy.

What’s more, 22% of them have a favorable view of Karl Marx and a surprising number see Joseph Stalin and Kim Jong Un as “heroes.”

“Millennials now make up the largest generation in America, and we’re seeing some deeply worrisome trends,” said Marion Smith, executive director of the organization. “Millennials are increasingly turning away from capitalism and toward socialism and even communism as a viable alternative.”

But do they even know what it is?

The survey, which was conducted by research and data firm YouGov, found that millennials are the least knowledgable generation on the subject, with 71% failing to identify the proper definition of communism.

Smith explained that this “troubling turn” highlights pervasive historical illiteracy across the country and “the systemic failure of our education system to teach students about the genocide, destruction, and misery caused by communism since the Bolshevik Revolution one hundred years ago.” [snip]

“This report clearly reveals a need for educating our youth on the dangerous implications of socialist ideals.” Smith said. “We will continue to work with educators to build curriculum to address this important need.”

The idea that one is going to turn this mess around is crazy. Look at the faculty at the colleges and universities teaching this crap. This is where these ideas are taught and inculcated.

Better that we offer these snowflakes a fast one way trip to any socialist/communist country with a revocation of citizenship here. Let them enjoy their paradise forever, while holding their degrees in Black, Women Studies or the Art of Genitalia Switcharoo.

Ponder this

Truth is of no practical value to mankind save as it affects terrestrial phenomena, hence the discoveries of science should be concealed or glossed over wherever they conflict with orthodoxy.

A long time ago, universities once were a place of learning, a place of human advancement in the arts and sciences. Today, not so much.

Professor Says ‘Mathematics…Operates As Whiteness’

You have got to be kidding me. That’s really all I can say about this. Mathematics is part of a system that promotes white privilege. That’s what one Illinois professor is saying, noting that teaching geometry and algebra reinforces such attitudes. How far gone do you have to be to believe in this crap?

Via Fox News:

A math education professor at the University of Illinois says the ability to solve geometry and algebra problems and teaching such subjects perpetuates so-called white privilege.

Rochelle Gutierrez laid out her views on the subject in an article for a newly published anthology for math educators titled, “Building Support for Scholarly Practices in Mathematics Methods.”

“School mathematics curricula emphasizing terms like Pythagorean Theorem and pi perpetuate a perception that mathematics was largely developed by Greeks and other Europeans,” she says, according to Campus Reform.

She also says that addressing equity in mathematics education will come when teachers can understand and negotiate the politics outside the classroom.

“On many levels, mathematics itself operates as whiteness. Who gets credit for doing and developing mathematics, who is capable in mathematics, and who is seen as part of the mathematical community is generally viewed as white,” she writes.

Unlike my fellow Asians, I totally sucked at math. I liked English and history better, so engineering and other careers that are heavily based in math were not in the cards for me. At the same time, if I had this nonsense looped into the curriculum, I would probably have gone insane—and so should any rational human being with cognitive function. You’re solving a math problem. That’s all. The fact that some on the Left are trying to make the field that allowed us to beat the Russians to the moon into the next field of political correctness just shows the toxicity of this whole agenda.

While the Privileged Whites were developing higher math, those others were busy digging roots with pointy sticks and running faster than pissed off elephants. Consider that!

Is this for credit?

Do your parents know you spent dollars on books and a lecture for this?


College symposium to investigate themes of “Islamic feminism”

The University of Oregon is hosting a symposium exploring themes of “Islamic feminism” later this week. The all-day event which will take place on Friday, October 27 is called “Islam, Feminism, and the Women’s Mosque Movement.”

According to the University of Oregon Communications Department, “The women’s mosque movement is a campaign centered on integration and equalization of women in mosques and as leaders of prayers.” The first all-female mosque opened in Los Angeles, California in 2015.

“The symposium will highlight the contributions of Muslim women’s activism and challenge popular representations and perceptions of women and Islam, particularly the stereotype of the ‘uneducated’ Muslim woman,” according to the release.

Topics will touch on the intersection of Islam and feminism in the fields of law, democracy, globalization, and writing. [snip]

Wadud has been quoted as saying, “I don’t want to change Muslim mosques. I want to encourage the hearts of Muslims, both in their public, private and ritual affairs, to believe they are one and equal.” [snip]

One has to wonder if any mention of honor killings, vaginal mutilation, wife beatings and mandatory burkah wearing will be entertained? All is part of Islamic Feminism as enjoyed in the Middle East.

OSU magazine: Your Halloween costumes are only offensive if you’re white

A student magazine at the Ohio State University has published a guide for students to determine if their Halloween costume may be racist or offensive to other students.

According to the October edition of 1870 Magazine, three categories of costumes that require special consideration are “A Meme,” “Something Sexy,” and “Politically Charged.”

Despite claiming that their guide is for non-offensive costumes, the “Yes,” section of “Politically Charged” costumes features an option for costumes that make fun of President Donald Trump, in which the magazine advises readers to “DO IT!”

For costumes that are not politically charged, the guide then asks students whether or not the costume is in honor of a celebrity who has passed away and lists the late singer Prince as an example. According to the editors, the costume of Prince is only okay if a person is not white… those who are white and want to go as Prince need to “Try a new costume idea.”

The guide also addressed the topic of sexy Halloween costumes, specifically ones that may be a nod to different cultures. While the magazine lists costumes such as “sexy construction worker,” and “sexy animal” as being acceptable, students who want to dress up as sexy outfits from different cultures should take a number of precautions to ensure their costumes are not offensive.

For example, if a student wears a sexy costume that is not of an animal or a specific occupation, but their costume included “Traditional headwear from other cultures,” the costume is only okay is the wearer is not white. Those who are white with such a costume idea also are told to “Try a new costume idea.” In other words, if you’re white, you can’t wear a costume from another culture, but if you’re not, then you are fine.

The guide also addresses costumes based on internet memes, indicating that only memes from “The Wholesome Memes Twitter Account” are likely to be acceptable as Halloween costumes while condemning costumes featuring racist themes such as swastikas or Pepe the Frog.

It seems that the snowflakes have no imagination. There are plenty of costumes that don’t appropriate some other culture yet can amuse and should cause an uproar at any Halloween gathering.

Examples are but not limited to:

  • Nancy Pelosi: Go as a brain cramp, her mask and all one needs to say Uh-uh-uh-uh!
  • HRC: Costume consists of a wine glass ad bandages. Whine and bitch about everything.
  • Harvey Weinstein: Wear boxers and an overcoat and a Bill Clinton mask, honk every boob in sight.
  • John McCain: Show a hole in head and brain removed.
  • Faculty: Form light poster board into a cone, making a pointy head, cover with long hair and perhaps a ponytail.
  • Hemorrhoid: Get a bulging purplish mask with tufts of hair and go as a progressive student leader.

Snowflakes on Parade

These delicates can’t be allowed to pick out a costume for Halloween lest they run afoul of some PC regulation concerning ‘Cultural Appropriation’. Why don’t they all co nekkid with their naughty bits flopping about in the chilly night time air. But then someone will accuse them of appropriating human culture. That would be true of course.

Ahead of Halloween, universities nationwide tell students what not to wear

Throughout October, universities across the nation are warning their students against Halloween costumes some consider offensive.

Gone are the days when college students could dress up without fear of being reported to a bias response team. In recent years, more and more campus leaders have made it their mission to warn students what not to wear.

Fliers, memos, workshops and more impart the admonitions.

“Unacceptable costumes” listed on a University of St. Thomas diversity flier are “wearing Native American headdresses, dressing up as a ‘Mexican’ by wearing a sombrero, dressing as a ‘geisha,’ any form of blackface.”

“Cultural appropriation is defined as ‘the act of taking intellectual and cultural expressions from a culture that is not your own, without showing that you understand or respect the culture,’” explains a University of St. Thomas diversity memo to students. [snip]

At a “Conversation Circle” at Princeton University this Sunday, students will “engage in a dialogue about the impact of cultural appropriation, Halloween, and why culture is not a costume.”

With this last we believe we’re into the area of felonious costumes.

If these fragile individuals need help with ideas, why not go forth gowned as faculty members, Pelosi, Shumer or Hollywood celebs in sumptuary raiment. A campus full of Harvey costumes should bring massive chuckles.
