Dartmouth College’s radical students threaten “physical action” to get their way
Coach is Right ^ | 2/28/14 | Kevin "Coach" Collins

Posted on 02/28/2014 8:56:55 AM PST by Oldpuppymax

A band of Dartmouth College students has sent an extortion letter to the school’s administration. The group, self-described as “concerned Asian, Black, Latino, Native, Undocumented, Queer, and Differently-Abled students,” wants Dartmouth to yield to its demands under threat of “physical action.”

The un-named collection of radicals demand a number of steps be taken by Dartmouth to “eradicate systems of oppression as they affect marginalized communities on this campus.”

Taken verbatim, their list of demands are as follows:

• Racial enrollment quotas for Black and Latino students to “at least 10 percent each”

• “Ensure that 47 percent of post-doctoral students are people of color”

• “Ban the use of ‘illegal aliens,'...

From the list of their demands, it sounds like these “radicals” would be a lot happier in the workers’ paradises of Cuba or North Korea.

Same as they did in the 60’s and 70’s.
Nothing has changed.

This will require years of study in order to make sure all concerns are met.

Can’t take this lightly.

Years. Of. Study.

When the system collapses some of these Parasites are going to be in for a very rude awakening after being pandered by all these meek and spineless public officials.

Cuse when littley whiney bitch and his/her pals show up in flyover country demanding they have a right to X amount of what others have they are gonna get some negative feedback.
Most likely consisting of lead, copper and Steel.

One word reply:

“No.”

And if they act like barbarians, then we treat them like barbarians, accordingly.

It’s about time to put a stop to this.

Whomever... I don’t care WHO they are. That they self-identify with the fringes is irrelevant in the long run (but not surprising).

If they decide to riot, burn, act like frigging savages because they don’t get their way, they should be treated appropriately by the Citizens and local LEOs.

Ship them off to Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s jail in Arizona to learn how to behave in civil society.

If they threaten lives or cause deaths because of their actions, they need to be removed from society.

It would be interesting to see what the “queer studies” courses in the Math, Physics, and Engineering departments would be like.

Exactly, I am sure there are many community colleges that these youths would do quite fine at. If I was the Chancellor of an Ivy League College, I would say “See ya”.

Dartmouth will comply in 3,2,1...

I’d almost bet my salary they’ll roll over.
Sometimes I think these institutions put these thugs up to this sort of thing to give them an excuse to turn to the dark side.

Reminds me of a famous standoff I know of ...

Crook: [during a diner robbery] What's you doing, you pighead sucka?
Harry Callahan: Every day for the past ten years, Loretta there's been giving me a large black coffee, today she gives me a large black coffee only it has sugar in it, a lotta sugar. I just came back to complain. Now, you boys put those guns down.
Crook: Say what?
Harry Callahan: Well, we're not just gonna let you walk out of here.
Crook: Who'se we sucka?
Harry Callahan: [slowly drawing his .44 Magnum] Smith and Wesson... and me.

“...I’d almost bet my salary they’ll roll over....”

You’re probably right, and it sucks that ANYONE would even remotely consider giving in.

The faculty is probably riddled with brainwashed, white-guilted liberal cowards who’s sole purpose in life is to kiss the asses of whatever aggrieved protected victim group whines the loudest at any given moment.

But to threaten violent action - if I remember correctly, that USED to be called a “Terroristic Threat” - and roll-over compliance or not, Law Enforcement should be immediately investigating it.

If a group can’t sit down and explain WHY they think they need their requests - not “demands” - met, and they have to threaten folks, then the validity of their grievance is null and void.

Convince me why I should acquiesce with rational logic and reasoned debate, and I’ll consider all sides and make a rational decision on it. Threaten me with physical violence, and “Well, boys, looks like War’s just been Declared.”

I didn’t see anything about violent action,just physical action. That could mean a sit-in.

I’ll concede your point. Words mean things.

But again. Reply with “No” and see what happens. My guess is they’ll lose their minds and go SDS and Weathermen over it.

When I was growing up, I used to believe people who went to an Ivy League school were actually intelligent.

Boy was I mistaken.

Look at the Dartmouth home page. They are crowing about a study that discovered that temperature affects the size of glaciers. This is an Ivy League School. Go Green!

someday, I hope to have Joe sign a pair of pink underwear. he’s a tough old guy. probably live longer than I will. the pink undies stopped the criminals from stealing them and plenty of psycho studies showing pastels calm people.

he’s a softy about animals (has a great abused animal “no kill” shelter in the jail and prisoners get skills helping with the animals) and he runs a high school in the jail. he doesn’t get any props for those programs by the drive-by media.

his “chain gangs”? the prisoners volunteer. who the heck wouldn’t want to get out of jail and do a part in cleaning up the State of rubbish?

He’s “Old School American” and that rates highly with me.

Hell, I wish more Sheriffs were like him all across the country.

If they take “physical action” I think the college should first give them a boot to the head and then a resounding boot to the ass off campus.

Dartmouth University Class Profile Class of 2017:

Basics
Size 1,117 students
Male 50%
Female 50%

Backgrounds:
African-American 8%
Asian American 18%
Caucasian 48%
Latino 7%
Native American 4%
Multi-Racial 2%
No Response 5%

Half female, half minorities, and since their self-described "queer" group can also take numbers out of the evil white male group, they already dominate the campus. At best, they probably have 23% of the campus as straight white males with citizenship or proper visas. The remaining 77% is protesting for more power and authority and advantages over that 23%. The poor oppressed underprivileged Ivy League darlings.

(14.3% of the students have parents who went there. Only 10% of all their students are the first generation to attend a university. NINETY percent come from college-educated parents.)

Actually I believe you were right about the earlier graduates. But that has changed today.

Last November, I gave a presentation on sharks to a group of Dartmouth Alumni , on Cape Cod. They appeared to be mostly retired men aging from about 65 to over 80 years of age.
My impression was they were highly successful in life, both economically and in other pursuits like literature and reasearch, and business start-ups.
They were a great group of people to be around.

I would think these winners in life at that presentation are disappointed with this new breed of winers at Dartmouth. -Tom

The “No response” to the race question was probably from the 5% of actual conservatives which is about right.

This is unnerving. Why haven’t the administration and faculty at Dartmouth caved in to the Leftist thugs already? What are they waiting for?

“..What are they waiting for?...”

MAYBE....just maybe.... a couple of them reached down inside their pants... found their pair of stones (onions, cajones, huevos)... and suddenly remembered what “courage” means.

I mean... it COULD happen... couldn’t it? It IS possible!

(really.... it IS....)
