America’s Stalinist Universities

Lew Rockwell

February 24, 2021

In a recent article on LewRockwell.com entitled “Imposing the Steal: America’s Great Struggle Session,” Vasko Kohlmaher explained how a tool of twentieth-century totalitarians was “public humiliation and torment” of those with “wrong thinking.”  The targeted individuals were compelled to confess their wrongdoing, apologize to society, and repent for the error of their thinking.

The reason for this is that “To totalitarians truth is as the cross is to the devil.”  Totalitarians “force their victims to give up that which is true and accept that which is false.” As F.A. Hayek wrote in the Road to Serfdom, in totalitarian societies “truth” is not discovered by research, education, discussion and debate, and the scientific method, but is merely announced by the authorities.

The Resurrection of the Third Reich in Amerika

Paul Craig Roberts
February 22, 2021

Yes, the Third Reich is undergoing resurrection, but not by white supremacists.  It is the white liberals in the Democrat Party and their presstitute propaganda machine—New York Times, CNN, NPR, Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, and the rest of the presstitute whores— that comprise the new Nazi movement.  The only difference is that this time the target is white gentiles. 

The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum says that “the goal of Nazi propaganda was to demonize Jews and to create a climate of hostility and indifference toward their plight.”  In actual fact, the purpose was more severe.  The purpose was to deprive Jews of their dignity and the  protection of law.  This has now happened to white gentiles in the United States.  For example, as I reported earlier today, Jodi Shaw, a white female staff member of Smith College, in former times a prestigeous women’s college, now an anti-white propaganda institution, resigned, accusing the college of creating a “racially hostile environment” for white people.

According to a Tuesday Op-Ed in The New York Times, many French “politicians and prominent intellectuals” believe that America’s new woke culture has gone too far and now poses an existential threat to the French republic and identity.

Specifically, they are concerned about the dangerous social theories on “race, gender and post-colonialism”, which they view as forms of separatism.

Where Did All The Lincoln Project’s Money Go?

The Lincoln Project has had a rough couple of weeks.  One of its co-founders, John Weaver, was accused of sexual harassment of young men and the Project attacked him as a sexual predator. As co-founders like George Conway denied any real familiarity or interaction with Weaver, others accused of the Project of turning a blind eye to his conduct.  Then one of its other co-founders, Jennifer Horn, resigned in protest only to be attacked by other Project members as allegedly trying to get more money out of the organization.

Newly-confirmed Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen received around $810,000 in speaking fees from the hedge fund that bailed out one of the primary losers in the recent Gamestopfrenzy.

Yellen’s financial disclosure shows her making $337,500 for multiple days in Oct. of 2020 from Citadel. She similarly banked $292,500 in October of 2019 and $180,000 in December of that year.

The Senate confirmed Yellen on Monday, making her the first female secretary of the department. She previously chaired the Federal Reserve after an appointment by former President Obama.

Both Citadel and Point72 infused almost $3 billion into Melvin Capital, which saw massive losses after betting against the video game retailer Gamestop. The White House said on Wednesday that Yellen was monitoring the situation.

Herbert Marcuse’s “Repressive Tolerance” (1965)

A 12-point summary of the 1965 essay, “Repressive Tolerance” by philosopher and sociologist Herbert Marcuse, teacher and mentor of Angela Davis (a founder of modern “antiracism” movement).

Editor’s Note: Much of Marcuse and the Frankfurt School’s oeuvre is based on Sigmund Freud work, the famous Viennese “founder of psychiatry,” who orchestrated what was effectively a cult around his teachings, many of which served to justify his own sexual perversions.

Leftist Harvard Students and Alums Want to ‘Revoke Degrees’ of Trump Officials and Allies

Deeemed Contrary to “Strengthening Democracy, Advancement of Justice”

Editor’s Note: The fact that associates of America’s most “prestigious” higher ed institution are partaking in such an extreme political witch hunt should give any prudent and fair-minded family pause before sending their children off for early adult indoctrination in almost every US university.

Graduate students and alumni of the Harvard Kennedy School (HKS)  have launched a campaign and petition to revoke the degrees earned by Harvard alumni who worked in the Trump administration and Harvard grads in Congress who support the president. 

“Harvard must revoke the degrees of alumni whose incendiary language and subversion of democratic processes — rooted in a history of white supremacist voter suppression — incited the violent insurrection on January 6,” reads the petition, which is headlined “Revoke Their Degrees.”

“This includes all who have used their platforms to deny the validity of the presidential election,” it states. “They do not and should not represent a university committed to ‘strengthening democracy‘ and ‘the advancement of justice.

‘Free Speech is Being Weaponized’: Columbia Journalism Dean Calls For More Censorship

Editor’s Note: More proof that higher education is a colossal rip-off. Here’s the head of the country’s most prestigious and oldest journalist schools (at a university that remains a hotbed of intelligence agency recruitment) calling for free speech restrictions–on political speech with which he disagrees. Save your money, self-educate, and strive at becoming a true journalist.-JFT

We have been discussing how reporters, editorscommentators, and academics have embraced rising calls for censorship and speech controls, including President-elect Joe Biden and key advisers.  

This includes academics rejecting the very concept of objectivity in journalism in favor of open advocacy. Now, Columbia Journalism Dean and New Yorker writer Steve Coll has denounced how the First Amendment right to freedom of speech was being “weaponized” to protect disinformation.

That’s right. A journalism dean and writer declaring that the problem is that free speech itself is allowing too much freedom on the Internet and other forums.

Coll’s comments came in a discussion on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” when he was asked by Kasie Hunt about the need for Big Tech to censor speech.

Times of London

More than 1,000 Chinese spies have fled the United States following an investigation into industrial and technological espionage, US officials have claimed.

The Chinese citizens involved had been posing as researchers while concealing their links to China’s People’s Liberation Army, said John Demers, chief of the US Justice Department’s National Security Division.

“There’s no question that they were part of a Chinese government effort to send these individuals here,” he told an online discussion hosted by the Washington-based Aspen Institute think tank.

11th Circuit Upholds Florida Atlantic University’s Firing of Professor James Tracy

Decision will likely embolden employers to actively police workers’ personal political views & social media activities

(November 17, 2020)

A federal appeals court has backed a decision by Florida Atlantic University to fire a professor who drew national attention for questioning whether the 2012 massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut actually occurred.

A three-judge panel of the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Monday rejected James Tracy’s First Amendment arguments that he was fired in retaliation for views posted on a blog. The panel upheld a jury’s decision on the First Amendment issue and a district judge’s rulings against Tracy on other issues.

Ruling contradicts Court’s own observation in 2019 oral argument that FAU’s application of “outside employment/activities policy” was and remains capricious.

“To establish that he was discharged in retaliation for protected speech, plaintiff had to prove, among other things, that his speech played a ‘substantial part’ in the university’s decision to terminate him,” said the 26-page opinion, written by appeals-court Judge Julie Carnes and joined by Senior Judges Stanley Marcus and Paul Kelly. “The jury found that plaintiff had failed to do so, as it found that plaintiff’s blog speech was not a motivating factor in the university’s decision. We conclude that there was more than sufficient evidence to support the jury’s verdict.”

Tracy was a tenured faculty member in FAU’s School of Communication and Multimedia Studies and had a blog that explored conspiracy theories and criticized the media, according to the appeals court. He drew attention for questioning whether the Sandy Hook massacre — in which a gunman killed 20 children and six adults — had occurred.

The firing came after a protracted dispute between Tracy and the university about a request that he report his outside activities. The appeals court said such reporting was required under a collective bargaining agreement.

In addition to raising the First Amendment arguments about retaliation, Tracy also argued that the reporting policy was vague and overbroad and that the university had breached the collective bargaining agreement by firing him, according to Monday’s opinion.

The appeals court said the reporting policy was designed to identify potential conflicts of interest. It said Tracy had not shown that the university had prohibited any professor from engaging in speech.

The opinion said Tracy argued that “no reasonable juror could have found that his blog speech did not motivate the university to fire him,” but it concluded that he “cherry-picks” the evidence and that he was fired for insubordination related to not filing reports about his outside activities.

“Given the university’s multiple warnings that plaintiff was required to file outside-activity reports and plaintiff’s repeated refusal to do so, there is little doubt that plaintiff was insubordinate,” Carnes wrote. “Indeed, plaintiff privately confessed to his union president that his conduct was ‘cut-and-dry’ insubordination and that he had not complied with university directives because he believed his tenure status would insulate him against any discipline.”
