University staff members forced to undergo reeducation in ‘heterosexual privilege’
dailycaller.com ^ | March 7, 2014 | Robby Soave

Posted on 03/09/2014 4:00:51 AM PDT by ilovesarah2012

Staff members at Western Washington University in Bellingham, Washington are enduring viewpoint-corrective training sessions in far-left political topics like “heterosexual privilege,” “gender privilege” and “language privilege.”

The monthly sessions are known as “Cultural Competency Staff Meetings,” and require that staff members discuss controversial issues and listen to lectures from experts on topics like white privilege and sexism, according to Campus Reform.

The meeting agendas are largely secret, and staff members have been swore to secrecy. One employee, however, gave an interview to Campus Reform explaining some of the details.

“I felt I would be discriminated against based on my political and religious beliefs, and because I don’t believe the content of the meetings will reduce racism or other ‘isms,’” said an anonymous WWU employee. “The primary theme of the meetings makes people considered privileged feel guilty and minorities feel self-pity.”

Staff members were specifically told not to discuss what went on during the sessions with anyone else. The meetings are barred to the public.

After some staff complained that the meetings amounted to little more than indoctrination, attendance was made voluntary.

These meetings were put together in order that the Diversity Officer, or whoever is responsible for persecution of employees based race, sexual orientation or political persuasion, can be identified and dealt with at an appropriate time.

Nothing more than a witch hunt for people of traditional moral values.

It would be interesting to see how many of those that decided not to attend these indoctrination events find they are not promoted or harassed.

The university also offers a number of diversity scholarships, such as the Multicultural Achievement Program Scholarship which awards a tuition waiver and living expense scholarships worth between $500 and $2,000 to 200 freshmen each year. To qualify for the scholarship, applicants must demonstrate a commitment to diversity and multiculturalism.”

“Imagine what they are teaching the students.”

Thankfully, many were spared because the indoctrination went into full swing after American students gave up learning anything anyway. Students that don’t bother learning reading, writing, and arithmetic don’t dedicate much time to “White Christians are Evil” studies, either.

Ponder the derogatory terms used to describe poor, white heterosexuals for which no-one in the MSM registers any outrage:

Dirty old men.
White trash.
Rednecks.
Trailer trash.

Especially the words ..

" ... after American students gave up learning anything anyway. Students that don’t bother learning reading, writing, and arithmetic don’t dedicate much time to ... "

pretty much sums up, for me, my opinion of what has happened to America.

My first wife of 21 years (now home with The Lord) and I homeschooled for 14 years and try as we did, both of us avid readers in school and proponents of generating and influencing that nebulous "imagination", failed to reproduce that in our own four children

I still love to read, but I fall asleep these days unless at a computer screen ... which has broken my back.

I’m sorry to hear that (both that she has passed, and that it wasn’t passed on); I’m getting mixed signals from my own brood (the oldest just entering high school). I push them to aim for high grades because I know the grades are overly generous to begin with (to combat “No Child Left Behind”); if my children had C averages I’d know they’d learned nothing at all (since nobody fails anymore).

I can’t get the youngest to read recreationally (not a problem with the others); hopefully we can change that. They mention a resurgence in comic books, which I was never into but any reading is better than none; one showed me a comic book he borrowed from a friend and it was much longer then the ones I remember as a kid (it was more like a real book than the magazine-types I remember).

I read a lot of comics until my young teens and then I discovered MAD .

MAD pretty much set a quizzical attitude to my basic thought processes.

If everything was as satirical as MAD was proposing (and I was an extremely fertile and receptive 13 or 14 year old) ... then the world was worth watching and knowing.

There were no computers then, just newspapers, TIME, my fathers Kiplinger .. etc., but it was all fascinating reading for me.

My wife came from rural Pa but loved the (common among girls at the time) imaginative love and romance first in Barbie, then in Harlequin and later longer novels

Marriage and work took away reading time, but not the desire and love of it.

Mostly we loved the exploration of our own imaginations.

Our children had their imaginations excised almost at birth with modern music making toys, and too early, hellivision.

I played in the dirt with my friends, sticks were guns and cars and a lot of 'em put together was a stockade and .... hours later, we realized we were hungry so we went home ... no one called us.

THAT America is gone ... and so is reading and using the imagination God gives His creation.

One of my former companies not only had mandatory diversity training sessions (run by a Central American Communist) but also if you transgressed you could be required to attend a three day intensive “re-education” class.

This was a Fortune 500 company with government contracts.

Exactly. These bastards in the college administration HR dept don’t want these sessions brought to light because they know they are wrong. They don’t mind “reeducating” others to their inflexible orthodoxy, but they don’t want their orthodoxy scrutinized by the general public.

“I wonder if the contracts continue provisions to force companies to do this?”

A huge portion of each government contract is dedicated to social goals, employing women and minorities, highly compensated blacks (they don’t specify black, but HR at the company in question told me they only count blacks.) They deal with environmental issues that cross the border into insane. In many contracts you not only can’t use standard chromium plated MIL connectors, but you also can’t even deal with a company that uses “polluting” or forbidden processes in ANY of their products, whether you’re buying those products or not.

The $600 toilet seats and $900 hammers are due to the clauses in the contract. They’re not (generally) because the item is overpriced in and of itself. It’s the other requirements not related to toilets or nailing that drive up the price.

Here is the issue: Is there an objective standard for morality or is it simply subjective? There has been a common law objective standard for over two thousand years that homosexuality is a perversion of the natural, now we are going to rebut that with what? Cos we wanna?

Are these people daft?

Maybe people should consider a university education in Asia. Very little of that crap here - very little time spent on teaching that is not likely to translate into earning power.

http://studyinthailand.org/study_abroad_thailand_university/study_English_language.html

This place is very close to me - incredibly beautiful campus and a limit of 25 students per class, but it is expensive! (30,000 baht = ~$USD 1,000)

The more I read about how the universities are degenerating into communistic indoctrination camps, the happier I am that my son is a team lead at a local farm and feed store which is part of a growing chain.

He has a few courses under his belt in engineering technology, but he is a team lead and in line to become an assistant store manager later this year.

He will pickup business courses as he needs them, but he is avoiding the lesbian-femenist-socialist indoctrination that is laying waste to higher education in this country!

This is exactly why, when/if doctors end up asking about guns, words & actions should be chosen very carefully.

I hit 'back' before replying last night in that thread, primarily because there is no reply that wouldn't be used against me.

That stated, having slept on it, when doctors become agents of the State (as, it seems, University officials have become in many cases), the proper reaction should be silence in said forum, or, to coin a phrase, "The Lerner Defense", and later anonymously expose the State as one or more of these University staff members have.

“Mostly we loved the exploration of our own imaginations. Our children had their imaginations excised almost at birth with modern music making toys, and too early, hellivision.”

That’s the issue with my youngest; we need to work harder on that.

“I played in the dirt with my friends, sticks were guns and cars and a lot of ‘em put together was a stockade and .... hours later, we realized we were hungry so we went home ... no one called us.”

Same here; growing up on the edge of the Meadowlands here in northern NJ, there was no shortage of open spaces (in an otherwise congested area), illegal dumping to provide lumber, etc.

“THAT America is gone ... and so is reading and using the imagination God gives His creation.”

My other sons have found some other kids with a similar sense of adventure, who also appreciate just kicking a soccer ball around. They are more “foreign” than my childhood friends, but in some ways the same...

I’ve seen some children’s versions of “Treasure Island” and such; I’d imagine that is as close as most students will get to the classics. My children read few of the same books I read for school, though they’ve read some of them on their own (my own copies of the books from years ago).
