Union County high school teacher reportedly told students VP Pence should be 'shot in the head'

UNION COUNTY, N.C. - A Union County high school teacher is under investigation after reportedly making threatening comments to a class of students, saying the vice president should be shot.

The Cuthbertson High School teacher called out VP Mike Pence while he was visiting NC, allegedly telling her students he should be "shot in the head."

The Union County Sheriff's Office says it's passed this information along to the Secret Service to investigate.

The teacher, who FOX 46 is not naming at this time, allegedly made the comments to students the same week the vice president was in town to campaign for congressional elect Dan Bishop.

1984 was supposed to be a warning, but the Left thinks it's an instruction manual.

This doesn't appear to be leftist corruption per se, just good old fashioned corruption. If you think universities are some kind of distinctively honorable institutions full of superior people, think again.


Philly professor spent nearly $200K in fed research funds at strip clubs

A university professor from Philadelphia blew nearly $200,000 of federal research dollars at strip clubs in the City of Brotherly Love — and now his former employer is stuck with the bill, a report said Monday.

Drexel University settled with federal prosecutors for $190,000 on Monday to avoid a potential lawsuit from the Justice Department, the Philadelphia Inquirer reported.

The settlement was an effort to recoup funds that the former head of Drexel’s electrical engineering department, Chikaodinaka Nwankpa, squandered at topless bars including Club Risque and Cheerleaders in South Philly, according to the report.

Quote:
"In France you have an Arab Muslim population which is struggling to integrate. The unemployment is 20% for them. People like Marine Le Pen are gaining in support. Do the French people who back her have a legitimate grievance against them due to the increase in terror attacks and people lashing out?"


That sounded like racism there and that you were generalizing them so that is why people got upset with you. It would be like if someone asked:

"The unemployment rate for autism is 88 percent. They are gaining support, do the Americans who back it have a legitimate grievance against them due to the increase of school shootings." I bet that would offend you. Don't forget that we are always hearing in the media that the shooter has autism so if someone generalized us, we would also be upset with their question for even thinking that about us.

University program teaches faculty and staff how they ‘support racism and white supremacy’

Boise State University has rolled out a new “book circle” for faculty and staff focused on white privilege in an attempt to “dig deep into ourselves to explore the ways in which we all, as individuals, sometimes unknowingly, support racism and white supremacy,” the university’s website states.

The book circle is hosted by the Gender Equity Center and the Center for Teaching and Learning and is centered on the book “What Does It Mean to Be White?: Developing White Racial Literacy” by Robin DiAngelo, a “white fragility” expert who speaks at college campuses nationwide.

While the program is open to “folks of all racial identities,” the website states, “the primary audience of this book [is] people who are interested in unpacking white identity and how white folks distance themselves from conversations about race, as well as learning how to engage white folks in recognizing their privilege.”

“White Identity” is only a concept to true white supremacists.

It is a concept which really doesn’t exist—except in the minds of white supremacists. They made all this crap up.

Conservative politicians and parties generally aren't too friendly towards academics and academia. This, I would suggest, is the main reason why most people within academia are on the left or at least vote for parties and candidates of the left. It's not really about having a dastardly plan to take over the universe, it's merely about self-preservation.

SpongeBob' is a 'violent,' 'racist' colonizer, says University of Washington professor

Professor says SpongeBob SquarePants is a racist
SpongeBob’ is a ‘violent,’ ‘racist’ colonizer, says University of Washington professor.

"SpongeBob SquarePants," which celebrated its 20th anniversary on Friday, has millions of fans around the world, but one University of Washington professor is clearly not among them.

For a recently published academic journal, the professor, Holly M. Barker, wrote an article "Unsettling SpongeBob and the Legacies of Violence on Bikini Bottom," in which she offers a different take on the affable sea sponge.

"SpongeBob Squarepants and his friends play a role in normalizing the settler colonial takings of indigenous lands while erasing the ancestral Bikinian people from their nonfictional homeland," the article reads.

From beyond the grave, the Democrat George Wallace and the Democrat Ku Klux Klan leaders smile.


Students demand ability to select roommate based on race during days-long sit-in

--Syracuse Students are demanding an option for selecting same race roommates in student housing, along with other demands.
--Students are occupying a campus building until these demands are met.

The Chancellor at Syracuse University has stated that he will actively work with a group of students who have issued several demands meant to address a racism issue at the school, including the institution of a new policy that would require students be offered an option to choose that their roommate share the same race.

The demand to allow "students of color" to elect not to room with students of other races was one of several such demands issued by a group of protesting students who aired their concerns about racism on campus during an ongoing sit-in. Syracuse Chancellor Kent Syverud spoke at the sit-in in a live-streamed exchange.

Calling themselves “#NotAgainSU,” this group of protestors is calling for the chancellor to resign if he does not sign a document conceding to the list of demands by Wednesday.
