Un-Woke Award, Harvard Republicans Stand Against The Liberal Tide

Unwoke Award

Harvard University has become the Ministry of Truth in George Orwell's 1984, where the truth is actually propaganda and untruth.  Joseph Goebbels would recognize and appreciate the use of language employed in Harvard's student paper, The Harvard Crimson, that stridently claims, "Supporting Donald Trump is the same as supporting white supremacy."  In 2016, the Harvard Crimson stated Trump has "flirtations with fascism" – a claim they still support. Imagine being a parent who paid tens of thousands of dollars to send their ostensibly intelligent little Johnny or Janey off to a highly respected school such as Harvard, or any of the Ivy League schools for that matter, only to have their minds beaten into submission with dubious democrat party and

“Woke” Award Of The Week – “We Don’t Need no Grammar!”

woke

Rebecca Walkowitz, who chairs the English Department at Rutgers University, should consider changing her name to Rebecca WOKEowitz to better reflect her position on implementing radical progressive policies. Walkowitz chose "Juneteenth" to inform staff, faculty, and students about a new initiative to "contribute to the eradication of systemic inequities facing black, indigenous, and people of color," by deemphasizing traditional grammar rules. The email entitled, "Department actions in solidarity with Black Lives Matter," endorses the requirement at Rutgers for all fall 2020 English instructors to attend at least one workshop remotely on "how to have an anti-racist classroom." Also, the email details the "launching a web page to provide access to events, resources, and affiliated groups," while also "organizing two teach-ins focused

What has Social Media Done to Our Political Discourse?

Social Media Politics

There was a meme rolling around social media before this entire COVID-19 fracas that read something like, "Remember before the internet when we thought access to information made people stupid?"   As much as I agreed with the sentiment of the meme, it got me to thinking about the nature of our social media, our access to information and the ability to share it, and what that has done to the fundamental nature of our political discourse in America. Anyone who is blessed enough to have received a truly classical education feels compelled to a serious approach to any issue, particularly the weighty issues of the day. We should strive to learn as much as we can about any subject and then

Coronavirus Crisis is a Glimpse into what Democratic Socialism Would Look Like

Corona socialism

Students matriculating at colleges across the U.S. are being influenced to prefer socialism over capitalism by left-leaning professors. For the first time in the lives of many, the current situation with Coronavirus is affording students and everybody else, a real-time view of what socialism looks like - empty store shelves, businesses stifled, and stock market wealth being destroyed because of investor's dim view of the future. Students need to ignore Marxist sociology professors romanticizing the glory days of failed collectivist regimes and observe what's going in the simulated socialism wrought by Coronavirus. If professors were fair, which they're not, they would highlight countries like Israel, India, and the U.K., who post WW2 adopted socialism by nationalizing everything. At first, socialism in

Marx for the 21st Century Taught at Princeton, Democrats Want it Tuition-Free

How do politicians like Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Pete Buttigieg, and pretty much the rest of the democrat party line-up manages to garner so much support when they foster policy positions that echo those of failed regimes throughout history? Well, one needs to look no further than the socialist incubators our universities have become to understand the dilemma. When Karl Marx Is the most assigned economist in U.S. colleges, and The Communist Manifesto is in the top three, it’s not surprising that a recent survey revealed 7 out of 10 millennials said they are somewhat or extremely likely to vote for a socialist candidate. It’s 3 P.M. on a Monday afternoon in the classroom of Daniel Hoffman-Schwartz, a professor at Princeton University,
