That Atlantic Jounal link you posted should be required reading of all who post here....er...for all our institutions of higher learning. Too many favorite quotes to list them all. Here is but one.

"The presumption that students need to be protected rather than challenged in a classroom is at once infantilizing and anti-intellectual.”
-
For me, it all gets down to the old haunting nemeses, lack of emotional soberity, aka, lack of maturity. I am talking to you, yes you, that guy in the mirror. .

This is turning into Berkeley East. But on steroids. These kids are demanding "offencive" speech be criminalized... OK,, so what will they say (or feel) when someone accuses them of what they are saying as "offensive and hurtful"? Or " they" are not giving people the respect they are owed? Let me guess... what they demand will never apply to them... Standard LIB logic.

George Rebane

Walt 144pm - I am convinced from a historical perspective that these kids would march us both to the wall in a heartbeat if they could.

Walt

No truer words have been written Dr. . Think they would even offer us a cigarett? ( Naa,, it would be harmful to our health and contribute to AGW) Think they would use those "green" bullets?

Arrows?

What are these soft shelled snowflakes (SSS) going do when it is time to get a job? I cannot see the job interview going well when HR ask the SSS's some questions outside their safety zone. And, the job applicant starts defining the acceptable workplace standards should a job be offered. If by some fluke, i.e. daddy is on the board of directors, what happens when these little SSSs are given their first review and they have not performed up to company standards, due to a crippling education on how the world works. Where are they going to find a safe place to hide.

They have the EEOC Russ. The worst department based on BS next ti the IRS. If you don't like your employer, whine to the EEOC. They will assist with the wall's construction.

Bill Tozer

Walt, ear plugs or nerf balls?

Michael R. Kesti

It seems that the FUE is PO'd because millennials are reading RR! I suppose he's also none too fond of Dr. Everett Piper, the president of Oklahoma Wesleyan University, who has told his students that OWU is not a day care and that they can go elsewhere if that doesn't suit them.

Bill Tozer

What the college coddled are really demanding is respect. Not mutual respect, just that we respect their sensibilities to micro aggression phrases like "America is the land of opportunity." Opps, me bad. I did not include a trigger warning before uttering that banned phrase. Gawd, I wish this was a joke but it is not. How low can we go?

The college cuddled aren't the only ones demanding that respect be given, not earned. And, of course, that respect cannot be mutual. This poor guy can't get no respect either, despite a Nobel Peace Prize. Go figure.

The pictures of the babe pointing at the "intruder" from the press on the this post was a administrative person as I recall. She was a nasty bitch. I watched her on the news loop. My goodness, who would want to live with that?

George Rebane

ToddJ 808am - In the news clip I saw, the pictured "babe" was identified as a professor of journalism at the school. If true, that casts the story in a whole new light.

Bill Tozer

This true, it's true. But, I heard she was an assistant professor and....drum roll please....she worked for the school paper. Perhaps the babe will be paid compensation for being so wronged and injured by....by......by some group, probably the Privelged Powers that were, and are, and soon to meet their demise. Power to the People and no trespassing allowed.

Gregory

No, she is an Ass't Professor of Mass Media with a "courtesy appointment" from the School of Journalism at Mizzou which was promptly dropped.

https://communication.missouri.edu/faculty/click

Easy A classes...if, I suspect, she likes your politics. Why she still has a job after calling for muscle to eject a student journalist doing his job is a mystery.

Gregory

Walt

Gregory. And not in ONE of those classes she took, did they even touch on the 1ST Amendment, or Bill of Rights. More along the lines of what "O" stated. " A Bill of negative rights".

Bill Tozer

Wow Gregory, she is a smart woman. Look at all those awards she done got herself and she even got herself a PHd in something.
What puzzles me is her pic on the faculty site. She seems so nice and welcoming. Then the other pic in Dr. Rebane's post. Is it the same woman, or did someone photoshop one of the two? Boy, them academia experts in something sure are an angry lot. Yep, Todd was right. Count your blessings that you don't have to wake up each morning to the good PHd non-professor. Oh, she knows a lot about editing campus papers and she got herself published!

Melissa A. Click also writes for the University of Wisconsin, Madison's Antenna and the University of Texas at Austin's Flow .

It surprises you that the biggest narcissist in Nevada County identifies with the most precious snow flakes in academia?

Gregory

I'd say she cleans up nice were it not sexist, or that it was an older pic on her faculty page except that's ageist.

Maybe it's the anger...

It's better with sound and motion... a ringer for Click.

Bill Tozer

Wonder what the good non-professor thinks of comedy clubs. I reckon she may conclude this clip does not espouse her world view.
TRIGGER. WARNING

Bill Tozer

Ok, last one. To save interest, time and in the spirit of staying on point, please watch our good Advanced Femistist Studies guru starting at the 1:51 mark. It may explain why she gets sooo pissed off when confronted outside the classroom.

No, I'm amused.

Opinions vary but I think the '60's were cool.

Bill Tozer

Push back time at Yale. Say it isn't so. Read that some public schools in Rhode Island or somewhere in those parts have banned Halloween because it might offend Jevohah Witnesses. How can Yale keep those two "masters" who dared to cry out and say "lightened up you guys, it's just a Halloween costume." Those two evil doers (husband and wife) just don't get it. Don't they know that dressing up as a Injun or belly dancer or a big burrito demeans the minorities voices and sets us back. Off with their heads!

Bill Tozer

Hmmm. This makes perfect sense: campus students, you have been had:

George Rebane

BillT 519pm - Mr Tozer, you are a keen observer of the human condition, an enjoyable wit, and an excellent writer. I humbly request that you might bring a compendium of these talents to supply a brief synopsis of the very relevant material your research produces and for which you provide the link(s). Readers would greatly benefit from such well crafted thumbnails, and thereby be more motivated to consume the expanded versions that you bring to us. Just a thought.

Bill Tozer

Oh Dr. Rebane, I don't even know what a thumbnail is. I did lose two fingernails dredging gold on the N. Fork of the American River back in the day. Flattered, but not quite sure what you are suggesting.
Back to campus speech, and by extension, free speech at home, at play, and in the public square.

George Rebane

BillT 1052pm - In my 704pm context 'thumbnail' refers to an informative summary of a larger piece or short description of a more complex issue. Well crafted thumbnails embrace the three Cs of effective communication - clear, consistent, and compact. Adding the fourth C of 'compelling' helps, but not all communications need be compelling.

Bill Tozer

I will work on the compact part. :)

Bill Tozer

Think we have beat this one into the ground concerning free speech, aka, protected speech.
To prepare our middle school and high school students for "higher education", I humbly suggest we ban "The Grapes of Wrath", and any works by Emily Dickerson, Robert Frost, Walt Whitman, Emerson, Emmanuel Kant, B.F. Skinner, Jack London, Dawkins, Hawkin, and Mitchnet. Plus all writings from our Founding Fathers, Abe Lincoln, Harriet Beecher Stow, James Joyce, Lenin, Karl Marx....heck, all writings by White Devils. Yep, that is the solution and will lessen any anguish and unmanageable discomfort our students of higher learning may and do experience.
