“…Peterson said the website would enable students to enter university course descriptions, as well as professors’ names, disciplines and places of work, to find out if the course was in what he judges to be a ‘corrupt’ discipline, and then decide for themselves whether they want to take the course and ‘become a social justice warrior’… Eventually the website would contain a list of ‘courses and professors and disciplines that should be avoided’.” – Samantha Beattie, “U of T prof’s proposed website would target professors teaching women’s and ethnic studies” – Toronto Star, Nov. 10th, 2017.

“This move ends the an unjust process that was initiated in 2011… During that time, Universities across the country radically changed the definition of sexual assault, created Kangaroo Courts on Campus, and substantially scaled back protections for students (a majority men) accused of it, which has ultimately led to job loss, humiliation, expulsion, and even suicide of men in college who were falsely accused and were stripped of their due process rights.” – Sonya Sasser, “End of Obama-era campus kangaroo courts: Huge victory for college students” – PolitiChicks, Oct. 2nd, 2017.

“From where do all these leftist groups come?… Most owe their existence to the continuous hatching of parasitic larvae formulated in government education and academic laboratories. Over ninety percent of college and university instructors and administrators are liberal and devote extraordinary resources toward indoctrinating young people into their leftist orthodoxy. From these corrupt, bureaucratic beginnings, modern Marxists are born.” – Jim Mullen, “The march of today’s alt-left activists” – Politichicks, September 2nd, 2017.


Politically Correct Intolerance & Antifa Violence On Campus

Monday, September 11th, 2017

“No Campus for White Men shines a bright light on the growing obsession with diversity, victimization and identity politics on today’s college campuses, and shows how it is creating an intensely hostile and fearful atmosphere that can only lead, ultimately, to ever greater polarization in American society… Across the country, ugly campus protests over speakers with dissenting viewpoints, as well as a preoccupation with micro-aggressions, ‘trigger warnings,’ ‘safe spaces,’ and brand-new ‘gender identities,’ make it obvious that something has gone terribly wrong with higher education. For years, colleges have pursued policies favoring students based not on their merit, but on their race, gender, and sexual orientation. The disturbingly negative effects of this culture are now impossible to deny.”

“The University of Arizona is hiring students to be ‘social-justice activists,’ [SJAs] and the job description demands that they ‘report any bias incidents or claims to appropriate Residence Life staff’… In other words: These kids are being paid to tattle on other kids for anything they might consider to be a microaggression, and any students who gets (sic) these jobs should probably identify themselves so that other students will know to never invite them to their parties… According to the university’s website, the official title of the position is ‘social-justice activist,’ and it pays $10 per hour. They can expect to work about 15 hours per week, which, as the Daily Caller notes, means that they will be making roughly $600 per month to behave like self-righteous, meddling nightmares.” – Harvard Crimson article “U-Arizona is hiring-students-to tattle on others for bias-incidents” quoted by Edward Cline in “College snitches” – Family Security Matters, May 19th, 2017.

Clarke Richardson Collegiate in Ajax… The board recently purchased sets of African djembe drums, ukuleles, and indigenous hand drums for schools to use, with training provided to classroom teachers.” (2).

“The Church of England has called for parents to lose the right to withdraw their children from religious education classes – because some parents are apparently using it to pull their children out of lessons on Islam… Derek Holloway, the head of RE in the Church of England’s education office, has called for that right to be removed from parents and for their children to be taught other world religions regardless of the parents’ views… ‘Seemingly [some parents] do not want their children exposed to other faiths and world views, in particular Islam. We are concerned that this is denying those pupils the opportunity to develop the skills they need to live well together as adults,’ he told The Times.” – Donna Rachel Edmunds, “Church of England spokesman: Children should be forced to learn about Islam” – Breitbart, April 28th, 2017.
