“Free Speech No Longer Exists in US Universities”

Straight from the lunatic bin:

No, Apple, we don’t need 72 different emojis to represent gay, straight & lesbian couples in 5 races:

If I wanted an emoji to look exactly like me, I’d just send a photograph. But then, unlike Apple and Google, I understand that they are a symbolic shorthand, not a racist tool of oppression that ignores my identity.

On Wednesday, World Emoji Day, the two California companies revealed their expanded repertoire of “newest designs that bring even more diversity to the keyboard.”

Seventy-two new iOS emojis of couples holding hands, instead of a generic symbol. Thus, a blonde woman with a blond man, a blonde woman with a tan skinned man, a blonde woman with a light-skinned black man, a blonde woman with a dark-skinned black man, a dark-skinned black woman with a light-skinned black woman, a white man with a moustache with a white man without a moustache, and so on and on and on.

Ten new emojis of the US sign for ‘deaf’, ten for cane walkers, five ears of different shades fitted with a hearing aid.

Quote from the following article:

…Voltaire quotes were used everywhere in the halls of learning:

“Think for yourself and let others enjoy the privilege of doing so too.”

“I may not agree with what you say, but I will defend your right to say it.”

“Cherish those who seek the truth but beware of those who find it.”

“Doubt is an uncomfortable condition, but certainty is a ridiculous one.”

“It is clear that the individual who persecutes a man, his brother, because he is not of the same opinion, is a monster.”

Today Voltaire is never heard from. Dogma has shoved aside tolerance and taken control of American universities in which Political Correctness, an ideology or religion in which emotional-based beliefs of certain “preferred” groups with aristocratic or Vatican privileges, such as black activists, abortionists, and sexual deviants, cannot be “offended” by facts or by someone’s contrary opinion…

[…]

To see the undeniable total collapse of university education and the very pillars of Western civilization, ask yourself what Voltaire would have said about this. What is happening in American universities is far worse than Papal objections to astronomers’ findings…

“Political correctness is America’s newest form of intolerance, and it is especially pernicious because it comes disguised as tolerance. It presents itself as fairness, yet attempts to restrict and control people’s language with strict codes and rigid rules. I’m not sure that’s the way to fight discrimination. I’m not sure silencing people or forcing them to alter their speech is the best method for solving problems that go much deeper than speech.”

― George Carlin, When Will Jesus Bring the Pork Chops?

As I keep stating, Orwell and Huxley were either prophets of the first order, or they were privy to the long term plans/agendas of the inbred, Anglo-Zionist elite-swine. Freedom of thought and speech have been bludgeoned to death, in this burgeoning ‘Big Brother’ hellhole. And just as it was in Orwell’s ‘1984’, these fascist/totalitarian attacks on our natural/universal freedoms are coming primarily from the left, where the immature, easily-triggered snowflakes hide in their safe spaces and dream of ruling the world.

Tell me I can’t say something, because it offends you or someone else, and then watch as I repeat it over and over again, until your politically-correct ears bleed. Call me a racist and bigot, or a misogynist, or a homophobe, or any of your other asinine, despotic terms, which you whiny-ass snowflakes use in an attempt to take away my/our natural/universal rights of free thought and speech, and all you will experience is my utter disdain, as I spew out every racist-bigoted-homophobic-misogynist-etc term/phrase that makes you whine like a crybaby.

Nowhere, and I mean NOWHERE, is it written that anyone has the right to never be offended. I have been offended a multitude of times during my life, and I didn’t care for it much. But I learned that I had to adjust, I learned that I was not the center of the universe, and that I was not alone in being offended. What I’m trying to say is, get over your little ‘self-actualized’ self, and grow the fuck up, snowflakes! Unbelievable, full grown men and women acting like spoiled brat babies: “Wah! Wah! Mommy, he offended me! Quick, call the thought and speech stormtroopers! I’ll be in my safe space, playing with my teddy.”

Chew on this for a while, pseudo left snowflakes:

Debunking the LGBTQIAPK+ Lobby’s Propaganda

…Homosexuality is a phenomenon which has probably always existed and which has often polarized society into two camps: those who believe that there is something inherently bad/wrong/pathological/abnormal with homosexuality (probably most/all major religions) and those who emphatically disagree. This is normal. After all, the issue of homosexuality deals not only with sex as such, but also with societal norms, reproduction, children and family issues and, most importantly, with love. What could be more mysterious, more fascinating and more controversial than love?

I am beginning this article with these self-evident truisms not because I find them particularly interesting, but because we live in a weird time when only one of these two views gets objectively and calmly discussed, while the other point of view is immediately censored, denounced and condemned as some kind of phobia. Now, the word “phobia” can mean one of two things: aversion/hatred or fear/anxiety.

Does this make sense to you?

Why is it that an opinion, a point of view, can only be explained away and dismissed as being in itself pathological/irrational?

Let me ask you this: can you imagine that somebody might be critical of homosexuality as such (or of homosexual behavior/practices) without suffering from any kind of phobias or without hating anybody?

[…]

…I submit that this phobia-canard (along with the no less stupid “closet homosexual in denial” label) is not conducive to an intelligent discussion. It is, however, great to shut down any critical analyses and “ad homineming” anybody who dares to ask the wrong questions…

Get the message here, little insignificant snowflake, some of us will not be silenced; not by you, or your Alphabet-people/BLM/#Me-Too sacred cows, or by this Anglo-Zionist empire, which, by the way, is in the process of giving you all the rope you need to continue to hang your self.

So now run, run away, to your safe space, little insignificant snowflake, or get a sex change, or molest, or rape a child (the newest ‘sexual orientation’), or abort/murder an alive baby in the womb, or take part in any of the other completely insane and perverse acts you lust for continually. In the end, it will be you, and those like you, who will pay the ultimate price for your insanity and tyranny, for when you have outlived your usefulness to ‘the chosen’ vermin at the top of this planet-sized pile of shit, the ones who are currently promoting and bankrolling your latest insane version of reality, they will simply rid themselves of you and your oh so sacred cows. And won’t that be a bitch? Who will you whine to then?

Free Speech No Longer Exists in US Universities

PAUL CRAIG ROBERTS • JULY 17, 2019

Georgetown University law professor Jonathan Turley notes that the University of California, once a bastion of free speech, now is opposed to it. The university now punishes people for opinions expressed outside the classroom and the university.

Doctoral Candidate At UC-Santa Barbara Faces Protests After Speaking Out Against Transgender Ideology

Not that long ago American universities emphasized tolerance of all views so that truth would not be obscured by dogmas. Little doubt this emphasis traced its heritage back to the Church’s interference in the scientific question whether the earth was the center of the solar system. In order to save their lives, astronomers were forced to renounce their findings and to assert the truth of dogmas that they knew to be wrong.

Today the same thing is happening in American universities, only the deadly controversies are over race and gender issues, not whether the sun revolves around the earth.

When I was a student liberal professors found Voltaire to be an exemplar of the correct attitude toward free speech. Voltaire quotes were used everywhere in the halls of learning:

“Think for yourself and let others enjoy the privilege of doing so too.”

“I may not agree with what you say, but I will defend your right to say it.”

“Cherish those who seek the truth but beware of those who find it.”

“Doubt is an uncomfortable condition, but certainty is a ridiculous one.”

“It is clear that the individual who persecutes a man, his brother, because he is not of the same opinion, is a monster.”

Today Voltaire is never heard from. Dogma has shoved aside tolerance and taken control of American universities in which Political Correctness, an ideology or religion in which emotional-based beliefs of certain “preferred” groups with aristocratic or Vatican privileges, such as black activists, abortionists, and sexual deviants, cannot be “offended” by facts or by someone’s contrary opinion.

The latest case of academic persecution is Laura Tanner, a doctoral candidate and teaching assistant in the Department of Feminist Studies at the Santa Barbara campus of the University of California, formerly a great university, now a cesspool of intolerance and Identity Politics.

Despite her feminist credentials, Tanner is under attack, not for what she said in the classroom, but for what she expressed in tweets. She expressed her opinion that “It’s not possible to be born in the wrong body.” Therefore a man in a man’s body cannot claim to be a woman. This exercise in plausible deductive reasoning resulted in Tanner being labeled “transphobic.”

A former student of Tanner’s, an academic terrorist—Kremina Youssef—seems set on destroying Tanner’s career prospects simply because Tanner expressed an opinion on Twitter with which Youssef disagrees. Students and alumni have taken the position that although Tanner excels in her teaching role, she should be fired for her “distressing” view on transgenderism. The fact that the vast majority of Americans do not find Tanner’s view distressing is considered irrelevant.

Laury Oaks, the chairperson of the Feminist Studies department, believes that a Title IX civil rights complaint can be filed against Tanner. The position taken by the intolerant freaks attempting to destroy Tanner for “distressing” a newly invented gender based on self-declaration is:

“We acknowledge that the gender binary, as it is commonly understood in the US, is rooted in the logics of colonialism, racism, and gendered domination, and that fighting transphobia is integral to resisting and healing from the harms that these systems create. The violence of transphobia, particularly transmisogyny, falls especially hard on communities of color and contributes to the exploitation, criminalization, and incarceration disproportionately experienced by black, brown, immigrant, and working class people. As queer students, students of color, and/or allies, our visions of feminist futures include and affirm people made invisible by and marginalized by the gender binary. In our classrooms, we are committed to holding space for trans students, including taking seriously trans students’ experiences, standpoints, and intellectual contributions.”

Note that among this collection of nonsense words there is space “in our classrooms” for transgender ideology, but no space outside the classroom for other views on the subject.

To see the undeniable total collapse of university education and the very pillars of Western civilization, ask yourself what Voltaire would have said about this. What is happening in American universities is far worse than Papal objections to astronomers’ findings. It seemed to the Church that the astronomers were contradicting the very basis of the Church’s religious teachings. But Tanner, who, unlike the Pope in those long ago days, is powerless to impose her views on anyone. Yet, the “transgender community” is determined to impose their views on everyone and to destroy the career of a young feminist. It looks like they will succeed.
