America’s Universities are About to Reveal Their Essential Uselessness

Harvard: America’s most expensive University of Phoenix clone.Harvard announced on Monday that it will hold no face-to-face undergraduate classes  this fall – all “learning” the students accomplish will be done on-line. This plan could also extend through the spring semester of 2021.

Oh, but guess what? That $49,000 tuition per semester won’t be commensurately reduced. Oh, no – perish that thought.

Think about what Harvard and other universities who take this same politically-motivated approach are about to see happen to them over the next year: Millions of parents who have been either footing the bills or watching their kids go into heinous debt so they can attend classes in the “hallowed halls” of extremely overrated brainwashing factories that are largely responsible for producing the mindset behind all of the Marxist-led social unrest we are seeing this summer are going to realize just how unnecessary those “hallowed halls” happen to be.

It’s inevitable. We are going to see the exact same dynamic take place in the commercial real estate market as employers are figuring out that most of their employees are actually more productive working from home and don’t need to commute to and from costly office space every day.

If all “learning” can be achieved equally well from a distance, if every university can become just another University of Phoenix, then why in the hell have America’s parents been paying for the building of all of these stupidly-costly palaces filled with tenured professors who haven’t really taught a damn thing in decades? Surely, an institution of higher learning like Harvard would not implement a 100% distance-learning agenda unless it could ensure its students continued to learn at the same pace, right?

Well, right???

Here’s the other thing that is inevitably about to happen: Many parents of students learning from home are likely to take advantage of that fact to witness first-hand the kind of Marxist/anarchist crap these universities are indoctrinating their children with. And those parents are going to be horrified, and they will talk with other parents of other students who they know.

Trust me, that will not be a positive sequence of events for America’s universities.

One of the dirty little secrets about the Antifa/BLM domestic terror complex is that the vast majority of those chubby, pasty-white Millennials you invariably see leading those riots and making up most of their participants were indoctrinated with Marxist/anarchist ideology while in college. These aren’t teenagers – the basic age group appears to be in the 25-35 year old range. They didn’t just think up all of this anti-America nonsense on their own or stumble into some organic riot planning meeting – they were steeped in this radical ideology by university professors.

About a month ago, some football players at The University of Texas famously sent out a long list of demands about renaming buildings, removing statues from the campus and declaring the school song – The Eyes of Texas – to be “racist.” (It isn’t.)

Guess who wrote that list of demands? If you think it was those football players, you might be naive about the thinking and writing abilities of 20 year-old wide receivers. The list was written by a radical professor at UT. That professor’s name will inevitably be made public soon enough.

The point here is that these kids don’t just come up with this stuff on their own. Left to their own devices, these kids are going to drink some beer, smoke some pot, listen to a whole lot of really bad music, study a little bit and end up getting a 4-year degree in 5 or 6 years. But at our nation’s universities, these professors and other campus radicals aren’t going to leave them to their own devices. And that’s how you end up with a dozen U.S. cities being looted and burned by domestic terrorist groups over a month of one summer.

Thus, one of the great benefits of a year of distance learning is that these students will have far less exposure to their professors and thus, much less indoctrination time.

There is no more fundamentally archaic, financially draining and wasteful institution in America today than the nation’s university system. By pretending for political reasons that they can’t risk letting 18 to 23 year-olds who are virtually impervious to COVID-19 go back to school this fall, these universities are about to reveal their essential uselessness to the world.

Cool.

That is all.

Fascism: Democrat Fascists Double-Down in CA, IL and MI

The Mid-Day Campaign Update

Make no mistake about this: You are now being conditioned by Democrats and their corrupt toadies in the U.S. news media to accept fascism in your lives and to demean anyone who dares protest the irrational, brutish edicts coming down from Democrat governors and mayors as dangerous racists who want to kill you.

Check out this report from California yesterday. There, Democrat Gov. Gavin Newsom, who on Friday shut down all of the beaches and state parks in his domain, on Saturday surrounded the state Capitol building with police fully-armored in riot gear to deal with a peaceful assembly of several thousand citizens. As the report linked above points, out, the cops arrested 31 of these protesters, most of them for not observing the Governor’s “social distancing” edicts:

‘Freedom’ protest against coronavirus orders leads to arrests at California Capitol

They came with babies strapped to their chests, flags waving and even a speedboat parked at the curb to symbolize California’s closed beaches.

Hundreds of people — likely more than 1,000 — crowded around the California State Capitol on Friday to protest Gov. Gavin Newsom’s social distancing orders amid a pandemic that has now killed more than 2,000 Californians.

With nary a mask in sight, protesters called Newsom a tyrant and showed their support for President Trump, evidenced by Trump 2020 gear everywhere, including for sale. But despite the president’s back-and-forth support of social distancing, most were quick to absolve him of their anger over current conditions in the Golden State.

Susan Dorrity, a retired mortgage broker from Modesto, said the president was smart to leave decisions about closures to governors.

[End]

So, right there in the first 4 paragraphs, your corrupt media treats you to a slanted headline that sneers at the word “freedom,” implies that the protesters are responsible for the 2,000 dead in California due to the Wuhan Virus, and smears the President of the United States. All that and more, in about 100 words. That’s very efficient brainwashing right there.

So, ‘freedom’ is not only bad, it’s deadly, and anyone who blames the situation in California on the Governor and his abusive edicts and not the President needs to be retrained. Got it?

As the guys at The Conservative Treehouse reported, the police who spent their day enforcing the Governor’s social distancing edict then went to the nearest officially-closed-by-edict public park and did this:

Oh.

Meanwhile, over at CNN… – Despicable hack Jake Tapper had Michigan’s aspiring South American banana republic strong woman, Generalissimo Gretchen Whitmer, on his Democrat talking point program Sunday morning. During the course of the interview, Tapper of course lobbed a leading question that encouraged Herr Gretchen to smear all of the thousands of protesters in her state as being racists and worse, and comparing them neo-Nazi groups. Because of course he did.

Herr Gretchen, plastic smile firmly implanted on plastic face, did not miss her cue, and this ensued:

Tapper: These protests came after President Trump tweeted (they actually started weeks before the President ever said anything about them) ‘liberate Michigan,’ he tweeted “the Governor of Michigan should give a little, put out the fire,” uh, he said that these are “very good people” about the protesters, to which the executive director of the Jewish Democratic Council of America compared those comments to president Trump’s referring to those marching a long neo-Nazis in Charlottesville as “very fine people.”

Is that how you see these protesters? In that vein, that extreme?

Herr Gretchen: Some of the outrageousness that happened at our capitol this week, you know, depicted some of the worst racism and awful parts of our history in this country. You know, the confederate flags and nooses, the swastikas, the, um, you know, or behavior that you have seen in all of the clips is not representative of who we are in Michigan.

And the fact of the matter is, you know, we’re in a global pandemic. This isn’t something we just negotiate ourselves out of as a political matter. This is a public health crisis that has taken the lives of almost 70,000 Americans, has put 30 million people into unemployment. We’ve lost in the last 24 hours almost the same number of Americans that were killed on 9/11, and that’s just in the last 24 hours.

We need to listen to the expertise in our institutions of higher learning and our health system and make decisions that are going to protect the lives of everyone. Whether you agree with me or not, I’m working to protect your life if you live in the state of Michigan. I’m gonna continue to do my job regardless of what tweets come out or what polls come out or what people think that is, you know, makes sense. We’re gonna listen to facts and science because we’ve got to get this right.

[End]

Ok, so, here are the key messages in that exchange:

– These protesters are all Nazis, racists, and you know, like, Hitler or something;

– The President is also a Nazi racist who is, you know, just like Hitler or something;

– Because science;

– Herr Gretchen is relying professors – you know, the same professors who brainwash your kids in our colleges are helping me brain wash you now;

– She’s in charge because she says so.

I think that about covers it.

Does this guy look or sound like a Nazi to you?

If he does, you are the one who needs re-training.

Meanwhile, in Chicago, heavy-handed Mayor Lori Lightfoot is spending her time harassing kids trying to play basketball, with an entourage that is not observing their own social distancing rules:

You could never make this stuff up, folks. Never in a million, billion, gazillion years.

Remember, Citizens! We are all in this together apart so long as you obey the orders of your superiors. If you disobey those orders and peaceably assemble to advocate for your dangerous constitutional freedoms, we are no longer all in this together apart, and you will be smeared and taken to jail.

Citizens! Be good citizens!

That is all, comrades.
