Loyola Students: Professor Required Us to Attend Van Jones Lecture
Breitbartīs Big Government ^ | 1/29/13 | Rebel Pundit

Posted on 01/29/2013 9:14:01 PM PST by Nachum

An event this past Wednesday at Loyola University Chicago featuring former Obama administration official Van Jones strayed far from the marketed title of “2013 MLK Celebration,” instead encouraging students to embrace a “new patriotism” and the “ugly-unequal founding” of America. Several students reported that they were compelled by their “environmental sustainability” professor to attend the radical lecture—students who up until that evening told me they had no prior familiarity with Van Jones. One student interviewed said approximately thirty students attended this class.

Folks on our side are starting to fight back. I’d like to see Van Jones try to take on Charlie Daniels... it would be the Devil going Down to Georgia...

Anti-Semitism is on the rise around the world and while Islamic fanatics scream about the destruction of the State of Israel, the dominos in the Middle East fall one by one, with only the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan preventing the fulfillment of the ancient biblical prophecy that Jerusalem would be surrounded by armies.

Yes, I am very concerned about Israel. It is not the land of my birth, but when I became a Christian I was grafted into the root of Israel like a wild olive branch grafted on to a full-grown tree. The Bible says that salvation comes to the world through the Jews, the race of people by which the Creator of all mankind chose to reveal Himself to the world, the race into which my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ was born, the land where He would live and die on a cross for our sins.

How could any true Christian not be concerned?

“...the land where He would live and die on a cross for our sins”...AND return to stand on the Mount of Olives at the seventh trump.

I’m with ya...Van Jones will not like his spiritual future.

If you sign-up for a course called "environmental sustainability" - are you really surprised when some narrow-minded, academic ideologue ding-bat tries force-feed propaganda to you? How stupid are Loyola students?

Loyola is a Jesuit Catholic school. Probably just a clever ploy by some wily Jesuit to turn the kids into lifelong conservatives. Cannot imagine anything that would have the opposite effect than forcing 18 ,19 or 20 year olds to listen to likes on Van Jones.

Read Van Jones bio. The guy has done everything, short of inventing the Internet. :)

My son was required to take a “diversity” class at college (Temple University in Philly). He perused his choices for fullfilling the “diversity” class requirement and opted for a “diversity” class on Native Americans, figuring it would probably be the easiest one to stomach among the choices offered.

His “professor” was black (naturally - - these mandatory “diversity” classes are designed to provide employment opportunities for people who majored in “African American Studies”) and one of the books REQUIRED for the class was a book written by that famous “Native American”, Ward Churchill.

I kid you not.

I have no sympathy for any idiot enrolling in a “environmental sustainability” class. The real problem is we're going to be paying for this waste of money when they default on their loans when they can't find a job because they're unemployable morons.

Communism is not optional, comrades.
The Party is not served by your ignorance of our doctrines.

They should have staged a protest instead. Show them they don’t ‘need’ Van Jones.

I don’t have a problem with having kids hear commies like Jones speak if it is followed up by having the students critique the speech without being pressured to agree with him.

The purpose of higher education is to teach the kids how to recognize and defend against these people. If they know what they are up against, they can be better prepared when they get out into the world.

I would rather have them read Jones than to have the school pay him to speak. He already has more of the peoples’ money than he needs.

I wouldn't read too much into this. Back in the late 1970's, Valparaiso University sent students of some classes to Jesse Jackson's Rainbow Push speeches. There was no requirement to accept the message, nor was there any suggestion that the message was sound in principle. The students were required to apply critical analysis to the contents, crowd behavior, etc.

I had a theology class, and the category of "liberation theology" was taught too - religion of the oppressed. The class title was comparative religion, I think.

Ward Churchill? That Irish "Indian"? Yikes - those folks who major in "African American Studies' must be the kids who flunked out of "Education"...
