Child Rapist Guest Speaker At College’s “Whiteness” Event

vlcsnap-2016-06-30-18h32m27s160During “whiteness history month” this past April at Portland Community College, they featured an event called “Students Of Color Speak Out”. It was sort of like an open mic session for students of color to talk about some of their experiences. Most of the students had some legitimate and heart felt things to say.

But when it came time for the guest PCC alumni speakers, one Tony Funchess rose up and took to the mic. He is now a student at Portland State University, after attending PCC for two years.

Mr. Funchess has been the subject of past stories, namely the one where he was running for Portland State University student body president and was discovered to be a two time child rapist.

That story gained traction in several local news outlets, and his past became well known.

But that didn’t stop PCC from inviting him to rant about oppression:

It’s interesting to note that the SJWs in Portland coddle this guy, and welcome him into their ranks, knowing full well that he is a sex offender. One can’t help but wonder how they would react if he were white.

“White Woman Of Color” Feels Guilty For Not Being Oppressed

vlcsnap-2016-06-29-15h49m42s46The SJWs appear to have crossed over into new territory. This half Croatian, half Lebanese college student gives a speech about how she is a “white woman of color”, and how she is not judged or profiled like other students who wear hijabs. She feels guilty that she is seen as “an innocent doe eyed white girl… I feel a tremendous amount of guilt for not receiving the same treatment that my fellow Arabs are given. And it hurts me, knowing that I cannot feel the same pain that my people possess”

So, is she oppressed because she’s not being oppressed? Do others need to oppress her to relieve her of this guilt? Is it now racist to NOT oppress people? This girl to seems to have the best of both worlds, as she can flaunt “white privilege” when she needs to or she can be an oppressed woman color when that card needs to be played.

This was part of a presentation titled “The White Elephant in the Newsroom: The National News Narrative and the Color of Terrorism” during Portland Community College’s “whiteness history month” in April.

Earlier in the event, they studied the profiles of mass shooters and how the media frames them, and related it to race. Apparently half black is considered white when the person is question is a criminal, because the presenters, Teela Foxworth and Imran Haider, claim that Umpqua Community College shooter Christopher Harper-Mercer is white, even though he is bi-racial.

By that logic, President Obama is just another old, rich white guy, Stephen Curry won the MVP because of his “white privilege” that oppressed LeBron James and Kevin Durant, and Russell Wilson is just another white quarterback.

“Non Binary” Student Named “PROM QUEEN”

2-photos40Feminists at New York’s La Guarida High School are now put in the awkward position. While they support trans students, and, in this case, a “non binary” student, which means they don’t identify as either male or female, they are now getting beaten by them.

Matthew Crisson was born male, but no longer accepts that gender identity. Yet s/he has been named PROM QUEEN at the school, beating several actual females.

The New York Post reports:

Some girls at La Guardia HS of Music & Art and Performing Arts were not amused that a boy stole their stiletto-heeled thunder and became this year’s prom queen — and their claws have come out on social ­media.

“I know I go to LaGuardia because a boy won prom queen,” snarked Asia Pierre in a Facebook post that attracted 500 homophobic comments and 100 shares before it was removed.

“It just sucks that men win everything and we thought we at least deserve that,” wrote a classmate under the name Taj Mahal.

Matthew Crisson, an 18-year-old Staten Islander who self-identifies as “non-binary” (meaning neither male nor female), was awarded the tiara at the “Fame” school last weekend.

“It was a big deal for me to reach out to everyone and run,” Crisson told The Post.

Mona Davids, a LaGuardia parent who saw the negative Facebook post and coments, notifying the school and the Department of Education’s new LGBTQ community ­liaison.

“They were very catty and negative comments about something so wonderful and positive,” Davids said. “It was very alarming to me, considering what happened in Orlando and how these things can get out of hand.”

Play The “WhiteNESS & Social Justice Interactive”!

vlcsnap-2016-06-19-15h55m35s237Ever wanted to play a rousing game of “racial justice dominoes”? Or take the “white privilege survey”? Well now you can! Thanks to this interactive social justice display at Portland Community College’s “whiteness history month”, presented by PCC staffer Jeff Laff, manager of something called “YES To College”. This display also features large banners of white shaming rhetoric, which include mocking work ethic, self reliance, desire to succeed, being punctual (?), mocking those who want to be polite, planning ahead, and other things that lead to one being successful life. Apparently these things are bad and should be avoided. Also featured is the diversity wheel, the “iceberg concept of culture”, and saying that “white privilege, specifically, is an institutional set of unearned benefits granted to white people”. You can also play the memory game, where you get to match the definitions of whitey’s evilness to buzz words like “worship of the written word”, “objectivity”, and “sense of urgency”. Apparently it is bad to have a sense of urgency, and better to just be lazy and late.

If you dare get offended by any of this, that is your “white fragility” showing, and your defensiveness is your weakness.

VIDEO: University Hosts “Socialism In The Air” Conference

12440238_10154760450479251_8919819204112423943_o

Portland State University (duh, where else) hosted a one day conference focusing on marxism and revolution. Sponsored by the International Socialist Organization, the event took place on April 30th and featured such speakers as Paul D’amato and Danny Katch, both of which are authors of popular (?) socialist books.

The facebook event page read:

One Day Conference of Socialist Politics, Debate, and Education

At Portland State University Parkway North in Smith Student Union Building

The popularity of Bernie Sanders’ campaign is evidence of widespread anger toward the deep inequality and oppression in our society. Many people are seeking out an alternative to capitalism and are for the first time embracing socialism. This conference will bring students and workers to discuss and debate strategies for building a socialist movement and a better world.

Video from the first session, featuring Mr. D’amato, features multiple calls to “overthrow the system”.

D’Amato praised Cuba and Vietnam, while blaming the US and the western allies for the fall of the USSR. “They did it, we can do it. Cuba broke away, Vietnam can do it. Vietnam broke away, they can do it. These workers fought, we can fight! They occupied their factory and they won, we can do it and win!” He goes on defend Russian communism by saying “Is socialism what happened in Russia? And there’s no doubt that what they tried to set up in Russia was socialism. It was also one of the poorest industrialized countries in the world, and their hope was we can start here but we can’t finish here. We can cling to power, but in conditions that are impossible… Socialism has to be made on abundance. Without abundance, all the old crap will revive, in spite of the desires and wishes of the revolutionaries themselves… You can’t have socialism built on the collapse of industry and mass starvation, and that’s what happened, and that’s what happened in Russia during the civil war. And a massive counter revolution army, supported by France, and Britain, and the United States, and Japan, under those conditions they managed to hold together, but they held together at the cost of the, sort of, democratic upsurge that had sustained it from the beginning.”

So the largest country by square mileage, which has vast amounts of oil, minerals, metal deposits, and countless other natural resources couldn’t find a way to thrive, and it’s somehow our fault.

This sentiment was further backed up by one of the students later in the event, saying “Why did socialism fail? Can socialism happen here? Yes, it can happen here, but it can’t only happen here. In Russia, you see this successful socialist revolution, but you also see the eight other imperialist countries attack Russia and smash the revolution.”

Another participant, Camille Avian White, wanted to clarify that the International Socialist Organization is Leninist/Trotskyist, not Stalinist.

They also claim that Franklin Delano Roosevelt wasn’t socialist enough, saying he was a stopgap who prevented true revolution and saved capitalism by giving in to enough of the revolutionaries demands to stop any TRUE prospective social change, thus saving the patriarchal system from actual socialism.

D’Amato cited a New York Post article that explained the difference between communism, capitalism, and socialism. “In a capitalist society, the people make those decisions. Businesses, the market decides how much products will cost, how many there are, and where it will be made,” to which the crowd busts out laughing. They go on to praise Bernie Sanders, of course.

This was a local version of a national conference of the same name, slated for the first week of July in Chicago.

Race Activists at Mizzou Hijack Vigil for Orlando Victims And Make it All About Them (VIDEO)

Mizzou Orlando Vigil PT

Student supporters of Black Lives Matter at the University of Missouri hijacked a campus vigil for the victims of the Orlando terror attack and made the event all about them.

From Legal Insurrection:

In another banner moment for the University of Missouri, student race activists hijacked a vigil for the victims of the Orlando terror attack this week.

The College Fix reported:

WATCH: Mizzou race activist hijacks Orlando vigil as gay community rebukes her

A vigil Monday planned by several University of Missouri student organizations was supposed to honor victims of Sunday morning’s deadly shooting rampage in a popular gay nightclub in Orlando, Fla.

It turned into a blame session against Mizzou’s LGBTQ community for not being intersectional enough.

Latino activists, including a Mizzou official, scolded the mostly white gathering for ignoring racial issues. That led one attendee to fume on Facebook that the organizers had invented a “race issue” out of a “homophobic attack” by gunman Omar Mateen.

The attack on the Pulse nightclub took place on Latin night, with most victims Latinos in their 20s and 30s.

At the event outside the Boone County Courthouse in Columbia, Mizzou graduate and activist Tiffany Melecio chastised the crowd for putting the interests of the LGBTQ community above those of “people of color.”

“I wish this many people came out to our racial demonstrations and our Black Lives Matter movement,” Melecio told the crowd, which The Columbia Missourian estimated at more than 800.

Watch the video:

In a sane world, these activists would have been booed off the stage.

SUNY Buffalo Professor Says Republicans And Christians to Blame For Orlando Terror Attack

Jonathan Katz

The American left is proving on a daily basis that they are unwilling to accept reality and will use their petty prejudices to blame everyone but the actual terrorist for the Orlando attack.

This professor is just the latest example.

The Daily Caller reported:

Public College Prof: ISIS Is A ‘Distraction,’ Christians Real Culprit For Orlando

A University at Buffalo (SUNY-Buffalo) professor is claiming any attention given to Islamic State and Islamic radicalism after the Orlando shooting is “deliberate misdirection” distracting people from the much greater threat of Christians and the Republican party.

“This was an American killing Americans because they were queer and that has not been forcefully articulated,” Jonathan Katz said in a news release put out by the school. “What we are trying to do here is camouflage the root of the problem, which is a long history of violent political rhetoric and homophobic policies by Republican officials and their conservative allies.

Katz, an art history professor, also claims to be the first full-time academic to earn tenure in the field of gay and lesbian studies, which he taught at the City College of San Francisco.

The school characterizes Katz’s statements as “research news,” though Katz’s comments appear to simply be his opinion as an art professor. Katz’s opinion is that blame for Omar Mateen, a radical Muslim who pledged allegiance to ISIS both before and during his massacre of 49 people at a gay nightclub, should rest with Christian conservatives, whom he describes as “our enemies.”

The American people are smarter than than this professor.

He and his progressive pals are just telling themselves what they want to hear.

VIDEO: Triggliots Go Bonkers, Campus Cops Try To Shut Down Trump Event

vlcsnap-2016-06-11-00h51m34s46The Portland State University Students For Trump chapter were back at it, this time holding an event called “BUILD THE WALL”, where they literally brought a replica wall to campus.

At first campus police told them they could not bring it on the university property because it is a “structure” and they didn’t have a permit. What’s quite interesting about that is the fact that the wackjob SJW groups on campus have been getting away with violating “policy” after “policy” over and over during their protests and marches. They use amplified devices, march through the halls of the buildings screaming and yelling, they literally took over a PSU board of trustees meeting that cause the board members to flee, and they staged a “die in” in the street, all of which were ignored by campus police and, as far as this author can tell, no punishment was handed down. If there were, then they were so light that it did not cause any of the students to think twice before doing it all again at the next protest.

The students began setting up The Wall off campus, then realized what cucks the campus police are and that none of the policies would be enforced, so they returned to the park blocks in the heart of the campus. This time a city park Ranger decided to tell them the wall had to go. The students made the case that The Wall was a “sign” and not a “structure”. The Ranger cucked himself off and the students continued on, with police monitoring both on the ground in uniform, and in plain clothes from the balcony of a nearby building, where an officer had a video camera and was filming the event.

While there was no mass counter protest, as previous Students For Trump events have seen, there were several passers by who decided they would try to get into it with the Trump supporters. The most eccentric of them were these two, where

the female says to the group “You all are intolerant… I don’t want to coexist with this hate” as they discussed illegal immigration. She asks if anyone has tried to get citizenship in another country, and a Trump supporter responds with “No, because I love my country.” The Trump supporters start to chant “USA! USA!” while the male dissenter starts shaking and screaming “WAIT A MINUTE! WAIT A MINUTE!” as the worried look overtakes him apparently triggered by the chant of USA, while a look of disgust overtakes the female as she calls them “pathetic”. The dude loses it and starts going off. “YOU THINK SHOUTING USA IS THE ONLY THING YOUR PATRIOTISM MEANS?!?!?!” as the chant morphed into “BUILD THE WALL! BUILD THE WALL!”

The female goes on to hold a long drawn out quote from poet Robert Frost, while insulting the Trump supporters’ IQs. “You are the party of ignorance” she says, as the male starts to have a break down. He steps away while the female continues to engage. After a brief exchange about past Presidents and policies, she goes “I can’t believe what you are doing. You are making people unsafe. You are making people unsafe.” When asked to clarify how the Trump supporters are making people unsafe, she responds with “Look how combative you people are”, even though she’s the one who came over and started calling people “idiots”. One man pipes up and says “If this is unsafe, maybe you should take a trip to the other side of the Mexican border” while the female says “I will spend the rest of my life making sure…” but then doesn’t finish. “We’re gunna make it against the law for this” says the SJW female. “Free speech will be against the law, according to the tolerant left” says a Trump supporter. She responds with “We are going to expand the definition of ‘hate speech’ to include what you are doing right here”, as she then starts shaking her head in disgust with the mere mention of the Constitution. “Well, good luck with your pasty, white bread America you want so badly” she comes back with. The last question lobbed her way was “What other federal laws should just be ignored?” to which she says “I’m done”. “If you want one federal law to be ignored, should, say, the gun laws be ignored? Should the civil rights act be ignored?” as a look of total confusion overtakes her. “Why aren’t you protesting Mexico’s southern border wall?” as she storms off, flipping the bird to everyone.

Also on hand were LGBT Trump supporters, as others took to chalking the sidewalks with pro Trump slogans and imagery, including a chalk wall. Mainstream media asked the Trump students to clarify on the race issue. One old bag and her daughter (?) went on about how Trump’s immigration policy is racist, and while a Trump supporter is calmly responding, the young hagling just says “Let’s go. Fuck Donald Trump” while, as usual, flipping everyone off.

British Academics Hold ‘Equality Conference’ And BAN STRAIGHT WHITE MEN

Oxford

Nothing says equality like banning one specific segment of society, right? Academia has become an Orwellian left-wing cesspool and this supposed ‘equality conference’ is a perfect example.

Heat Street reports:

Straight White Men Banned From Equality Conference

News that a university lecturers’ union has banned straight, white men from attending their equality conferences in a bid to create “safe spaces” is deeply depressing.

University and College Union equality conferences are held exclusively for women, LGBT, ethnic minorities or disabled people, and members must declare their “protected characteristic” when applying to attend.

Surely UCU can see the irony of hosting an equality conference where – as George Orwell wrote – some are more equal than others?

One cannot deny the privileges that straight, white men have in today’s society.

We live in a world where women effectively work for nothing from November 9 until December 31 because men in full-time work continue to earn 14 per cent more than their female counterparts.

Britain is a country where less than one in 10 CEOs are women in FTSE 100 companies.

Ethnic minorities are still underrepresented in parliament.

These are all issues which desperately need addressing.

However, excluding straight, white men from taking part in these conferences completely undermines their point.

How are people expected to tackle minority issues when, in the most crass manner, one of the root causes of that problem is specifically excluded from participating – as though it didn’t exist?

It is also incredibly ignorant to suggest that white men cannot – and don’t want to – fight for equality.

Maybe straight white men shold hold their own exclusive conference. Oh wait, that would be racist.

Yale Students Demand English Department Stop TEACHING WHITE MALE POETS

Shakespeare pic PT

Students at Yale are angry that the study of English requires reading the work of old white male poets. Apparently, no one has told them that it’s impossible to avoid white people when you’re studying English literature.

Reason reported:

Yale Students Tell English Profs to Stop Teaching English: Too Many White Male Poets

Some Yale University students are demanding changes to the English Department curriculum: specifically, they don’t think it should feature so many English poets who were straight, white, wealthy, and male.

“It is your responsibility as educators to listen to student voices,” the students wrote in a petition to the faculty. “We have spoken. We are speaking. Pay attention.”

The “Major English Poets” sequence, a mandatory two-course commitment for English majors, is particularly problematic, according to the students. These classes cover Geoffrey Chaucer, Edmund Spenser, William Shakespeare, John Donne, John Milton, Alexander Pope, William Wordsworth, and T.S. Eliot. It’s not the most diverse line up, to be sure, but it’s the one that best reflects history the way it actually happened. Inarguably, these are the most influential poets in the English language.

But students think this sequence “creates a culture that is hostile to students of color.” They write:

When students are made to feel so alienated that they get up and leave the room, or get up and leave the major, something is wrong. The English department loses out when talented students engaged in literary and cultural analysis are driven away from the major. Students who continue on after taking the introductory sequence are ill-prepared to take higher-level courses relating to race, gender, sexuality, ethnicity, nationality, ability, or even to engage with critical theory or secondary scholarship. We ask that Major English Poets be abolished, and that the pre-1800/1900 requirements be refocused to deliberately include literatures relating to gender, race, sexuality, ableism, and ethnicity.

It’s time for the English major to decolonize — not diversify — its course offerings. A 21st century education is a diverse education: we write to you today inspired by student activism across the university, and to make sure that you know that the English department is not immune from the collective call to action.

Is anyone else getting tired of college students who think they’re smarter than everyone, including their professors?
