A taxpayer-supported school condemns the United States as a “white supremacy system.”
“...they have figured out how to extract an ongoing public subsidy to engage in private left-wing activism.” Bingo!
Great work once again. You are a hero for doing this work.
Again Christopher exposes the political activism of state funded higher education. And while it is more explicit since 2020, this leftist slant has been ongoing for years in the academy resulting in a massive majority of educators and administrators with one viewpoint. Our country is reaping the harvest.
.."approximately 80 percent of whom are racial minorities. But for the leadership, the goal of “diversity” is an ideological, rather than demographic, project."
This is fascinating! So, the incessant, interminable claims that all they want are "the numbers" to verify "equity," they actually just want to keep their project going, along with their justification for making $350 K per year.
God bless Chris Rufo for being America's sole Hercules willing to attempt cleaning up the ideological manure factories that are the Augean Stables of our time. (Though I do worry about his psyche sometimes—Chris, how do you read all this stuff and not go mad with rage??)
I'm sure I've said this here before, but as someone who's had a front-row seat to the Leftist capture of academia since the 90s, one of the more shocking aspects was how all this madness was left unchecked in red states too, and even rubber-stamped by generations of supposedly conservative legislators.
When it comes to American academia, our country is like someone who waited to see a doctor until his minor rash became a bad case of gangrene about to devour his entire body. Hopefully the gangrene here (the takeover of our entire culture by authoritarian fanatics) can be fixed with a few strategic amputations, and the patient can survive.
And if so, and the worst manifestations of Leftism are eradicated, maybe next we can move on to the other side of the aisle and weed out all these supposed conservative politicians who represent money not people, and who were fine with funding and inflicting a Red Guard on America, as long as it didn't injure their donors' wallets.
The implication of taxing us to pay for this is that we have some sort of duty to support it. A duty! We do not. There are many thousands of hardworking, tax-paying citizens who are not at all well-to-do and yet must "fork over" to pay for obnoxious and very-well-paid sinecurists who purport to lecture (hector, really) and "correct" said citizens - and impose outlandish social and administrative costs, penalties and "punishments," etc. It is parasitical and gross.
This "revolutionary" freeloading and wage-theft produces nothing but social antagonism and pointless social aggression. It is a formula for the opposite of social peace and the sense that we (me and any taxpayer who wants to be my neighbor) have a common good and destiny. It instigates social "change" allright," but not improvement.
It is always important to move past moralistic rhetoric and to specifics - it is in these specifics that one can see most clearly that this "movement" is false and unjust, and should be resisted.
this garbage won't stop as long as alumni donate and students (or their parents) pay tuition.
As long as people will pay to go to these institutes, the garbage will continue to flow. Florida is in the cleansing process (thank you!) and I hope others follow suit.
Page 46 of the documents is potent. It talks about "The danger of the single story", that "Power is the ability to tell the story of another person and make it definitive". That a single story "create[s] stereotypes", "robs people of their dignity" and "makes recognition of common humanity difficult".
I couldn't agree more. The single story of Woke Marxism is *designed* to take power over other people by telling their story and making it definitive. It stereotypes them, robs them of their dignity and makes recognition of their common humanity difficult.
This is the Iron Law of Woke Projection - they project their evil actions onto everyone else.
Go deep on the New Discourses website and podcast content - James Lindsay is 'doing the work' of reading Marxist books and papers and explaining what they are really doing, especially the podcast episodes 'The Negation of the Real', 'The Gnostic Parasite' and 'As Below, So Above' (in that order).
Thank you for this! I live in Houston and this is something I never would have thought of coming out of Texas (probably too naive to accept DEI has infected everything), along with the Texas Children's Hospital story. Please keep up the good work. God Bless from Texas.
We should definitely abolish DEI on all campuses. Resources would be better spent addressing mental health issues, as isolation and depression are signs that the individual needs counseling rather than DEI propaganda.
With increased shootings in Texas, lawmakers ought to address the mental wellness of their constituents rather than push an agenda that is bound to become obsolete in the near future; happy people who wish to remain happy do not vote for the oppressor/oppressed narrative.
Being a healthy minority, I and many others I know, do not wish to tell our children they are oppressed and might as well become nihilistic in perspective.
Nihilism is the harbinger of drug abuse, crime, and mass shootings. Our country could do with less of that.
Sounds like dystopian "training", and pure psychological indoctrination and terror. Thanks for writing these practices out so clearly. And there's something pathological with seeing f.ex. sexual orientation as the entirety of your being. We are all both majority and minorities in different aspects in life.
Thanks for your great work, and congrats with the Big Wins in Florida. Inspiring!
Sounds like a cult.
Chris Rufo is the most effective conservative activist in the country.
I don't understand why these woke bureaucrats think they have to teach college students how to have sex. Apparently there is some problem with college students simply not being as interested in sex as they were in my generation, but if they become interested at some point I would think that classes would be unnecessary. It's just very weird how these prissy puritanical cultists are so obsessed with young peoples' sexuality.
I would bet Soros money was infused into their Humanities Department. Again, money talks also to Marxism.
