    Recent events at the University of Missouri, Yale University and some other colleges demonstrate an ongoing ignorance and/or contempt for the principles of free speech. So let's examine some of those principles by asking: What is the true test of one's commitment to free speech? Contrary to the widespread belief of tyrants among college students, professors and administrators, the true test of one's commitment to free speech does not come when one permits people to be free to express those ideas that he finds acceptable. The true test of one's commitment to free speech comes when he permits others to...
  • Bill de Blasio says his son, Dante, has joined protests over racial issues at Yale

    Mayor de Blasio said his son Dante has been active in protests over racial issues at Yale — and they both agree the school should drop the name of a prominent defender of slavery. Dante, a freshman, is assigned to Yale’s Calhoun College, named for John C. Calhoun, a U.S. vice president and South Carolina senator who vehemently backed slavery as a “positive good” for the nation. “He’s very concerned, and he certainly notes the fact that the college he’s in, Calhoun College, is named for someone it shouldn’t be named for,” de Blasio told reporters Monday. “ That’s quite...

    In the opening chapters of “Black Earth: The Holocaust as History and Warning,” Yale professor Timothy Snyder forcefully acknowledged what he calls the “ecological” Anti-Semitism of the Fuhrer, “An instructive account of the mass murder of the Jews of Europe must be planetary, because Hitler’s thought was ecological, treating Jews as a wound of nature.” In spite of such an assertion, however, the great caveat of Snyder’s book is he inexplicably fails to discuss the Nazi ecological historical record that should have informed his thesis ...

    Unhappy with a series of small concessions from the administration, protesters at Yale University have released a new list of demands that include firing people they don’t like and giving their favored programs a budget increase of at least $8 million a year. The new demands, released by a group calling itself Next Yale, were read aloud to Yale president Peter Salovey Thursday night by protesters who marched to his front door at midnight. The group says the demands are necessary to “reduce the intolerable racism that students of color experience on campus every day.” Salovey is given until Nov....

    Come for free tuition, stay for the anti-Semitism. Seems other lefty college students are jealous of the Yale and University of Missouri kids, so on Thursday they launched a Million Student March at 100-plus campuses. On Fox News, one "Million" leader called for free tuition, a minimum-wage hike and cancellation of student debt (to be covered by new taxes on the 1 percent). But the rally here at CUNY's Hunter College came with an added, ugly twist, thanks to the NYC Students for Justice in Palestine. In a Facebook post, NYC-SJP added an anti-Semitic spin. It blamed tuition costs on...

    Crisis Magazine ^ | November 10, 2015 | CALEB HENRY
    Two of America’s three branches of federal government have declared war on parental authority. President Obama’s Department of Education has been explicitly attacking schools that have the audacity to prefer traditional morality. However, making sense of the Education Department’s actions requires looking at the Obergefell same-sex “marriage” decision. The Obergefell decision explains why the Department of Education will not stop until it has eliminated parental authority to teach traditional morality to their children.The Department of Education has recently targeted an Illinois public school. The school allowed a (biologically male) transgendered student to participate in girls’ sports. The student was...

I couldn’t understand why he would so callously and easily disrespect me and those like me, for fun.

    Half a century ago, student activists liberated themselves—partly, at least—from in loco parentis: the paternalistic notion that college administrators should serve as watchful guardians, restricting students’ activities and rights in order to provide a safe environment for them, the way a mother or father would. Today, students across the country are determined to undo this liberation. At Yale University, a group of aggrieved minority students have demanded the resignations of administrators who wisely rejected calls for emotional coddling. Nicholas Christakis, the master of Yale’s Silliman College, and his wife, Erika Christakis, an early childhood educator at Yale, conveyed to students...

    Ah the 1960’s: the decade of America’s counter-cultural revolution. Youthful revolutionaries circa 1960 found fault with America’s materialism and sought to improve society’s inequities tied to race, class, and gender. Campus unrest was rampant, civil discourse was not-so-civil, and everyone, everywhere seemed consumed by racial tension fueled by charges of discrimination. Had we done a better job, perhaps we wouldn’t still be litigating the same grievances 50 years hence.At the half century mark all we’ve effectively done is impose mandatory politically correct speech, create campus “safe spaces” and raise children who grow more hyper-sensitive to real and/or perceived micro-aggressions with...

Well, Carson says it really happened, and the proof is on the right. It's a piece from the Yale Daily News about a parody issue of the News published by the Yale Record. Apparently the parody issue announced that some psychology exams had been destroyed and a retest would be held in the evening. Hilarious! This makes the whole story even more fascinating. It's clear that Carson's account is substantially different from the parody. He...

My colleague pointed out that Politico’s reporting was sloppy, but the same goes – he argued – for the campaign’s response. The point seems to be: Politico’s article isn’t entirely fair, but Carson’s response and exaggerations mean he’s not ready for the spotlight. Although Carson’s campaign certainly made a mistake by responding to Politico’s inquiries the way they did – they kept it too vague – the fact of the...

    Okay; repeat after me: fracking does not pollute your drinking water. As Sean Hackbarth over at the Chamber of Commerce noted, a Yale study found no evidence that fracking, which is used in the process of extracting natural gas, causes drinking water to become undrinkable: Organic compounds found in drinking water aquifers above the Marcellus Shale and other shale plays could reflect natural geologic transport processes or contamination from anthropogenic activities, including enhanced natural gas production. Using analyses of organic compounds coupled with inorganic geochemical fingerprinting, estimates of groundwater residence time, and geospatial analyses of shale gas wells and...

    The Sierra Club should start printing retractions (something theyve been getting a lot of practice doing), because researchers from Yale University have concluded that hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, doesnt contaminate drinking water! [There is] no evidence of association with deeper brines or long-range migration of these compounds to the shallow aquifers concludes the new study, which was published in the highly prestigious Proceedings of the National Academy of Science. The study, the largest of its kind, sampled 64 private water wells near fracking sites to determine if they could be contaminated by fracking fluids. [The chemicals] are likely not a...

    Yale Divinity School invited Black Lives Matter activist DeRay McKesson to be a "guest lecturer" for two days on "transformational leadership." McKesson made it clear just how transformational his leadership was when he defended looting as a legitimate political tactic. On Friday, McKesson will be one of the BLM activists meeting with Hillary Clinton. Perhaps Mrs. Clinton could broach the subject with Mr. McKesson and get his views on whether killing white cops is justified.

    We recently told you about the breaking news of DeRay Mckesson – whose impressive resume includes being a human resources administrator at a middle school and a Black Lives Matter protester – obtaining a position as a lecturer at Yale University. The original list of “reading material for the course” included articles from Huffington Post and the New York Times. They seem to have missed a few items in the syllabus, though. A friend of ours on Twitter caught wind of a tweet from one of the students at the prestigious Ivy League school who was letting her friends...

    The Federalist ^ | 2015-10-05 | Ben Weingarten
    So why is Yale University, whose crest written in Hebrew and Latin translates to Light and truth, giving a platform to an ideology that blots out light and conceals or obfuscates truth as part of its greater mission for world domination? If all ideologies are equal in value, and if our own heritage is to be defined primarily in the Obama/Zinn milieu of The Crusades, Western imperialism, and slavery, then perhaps Yales decision is not only justified but represents a healthy dollop of redistributive justice. Even so, Yale is endorsing an ideology under which Yale itself could not exist, just...

    Gibbon on global warming Yale University Professor Charles Hill is one of the Yale faculty's notable polymaths. Before joining the Yale faculty as diplomat in residence and lecturer in international politics, he seems to have been everywhere and done everything. His former student Molly Worthen titled her biography of Professor Hill The Man On Whom Nothing Was Lost (a book we wrote about here, here and here). Yesterday's Wall Street Journal carried a letter to the editor by Professor Hill responding to a Journal editorial on global warming hokum: "The fact that the earth's climate changes in cycles from warm...

    Shariah Finance Watch ^ | 15 September 15 | Christopher Holton
    Yale has now joined its Ivy League rival Harvard by establishing a center designed to promote Shariah in America. And, just like Harvard, Yale has prostituted itself to do so by taking a $10 million inducement from a wealthy Saudi financier who made his fortune in none other than Shariah-compliant finance. That donor is none other than Saleh Abdullah Kamel.

    The Ferguson protests and riots were never a grassroots movement. The mob action was a carefully coordinated Soros-funded astroturf movement bent on destruction Professional race activists Deray McKesson and Johnetta Elzie (ShordeeDooWhop), pictured here in Baltimore, helped whip up the Ferguson mobs. This year Fortune Magazine named these two professional activists two of the worlds greatest leaders. ** Nearly half of the roughly 500 businesses operating in Ferguson and adjacent communities, such as Dellwood and Jennings, suffered property damage or lost revenue as a result of the coordinated Ferguson protests and riots. DeRay McKesson was also on the ground in...
