TOTALITARIANISM IN DURHAM

Wednesday, July 18th, 2018

 

Totalitarianism In Durham

Government officials attempt to “no-platform” Jordan Peterson.

Leftist city officials in Durham, N.C., are trying to censor conservative academic Jordan B. Peterson by denying him a platform for an upcoming local talk about his bestselling self-help book.

This attack on Peterson is part of a larger assault on conservatives’ free speech rights in the Trump era. Demonstrators have shut down or tried to shut down Charles Murray, Milo Yiannopoulos, Ben Shapiro, Ann Coulter, Mark Levin, and David Horowitz, to name a few targets. Social media companies brazenly discriminate against conservatives and the crimes of former IRS official Lois Lerner against conservative activist groups remain unprosecuted.

Peterson is a former Harvard clinical psychology professor who is scheduled to speak Sept. 10 at the Durham Performing Arts Center (DPAC), which is owned by the City of Durham. Contrary to local media reports, he was not invited to speak by DPAC: he rented the venue.

The date is part of a speaking tour to promote his acclaimed self-help book, 12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos. Durham won’t be Peterson’s first appearance in an intellectually hostile left-wing urban center in the U.S. Now a professor at the University of Toronto in Canada, he has already spoken in New York City, Boston, Philadelphia, Austin, Texas, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, and Portland, Ore.

Peterson’s talk on “Identity Politics and the Marxist Lie of White Privilege” at a conference held last fall in Washington, D.C., helped to bring his message to a new audience and may have played a role in his meteoric rise.

The radical office-holders in charge in Durham are terrified of Peterson, what he represents, and what he might say on their turf.

FEMINIST ACTIVISM MASQUERADING AS EDUCATION

Friday, June 22nd, 2018

 

If it is happening here in North Carolina, it is probably happening in the universities in your states.  Nancy

Feminist activism masquerading as education

The supposedly academic discipline of women’s studies is “an arm of the women’s movement,” according to philosopher Christina Hoff Sommers. And that movement is political — political activism is at least as fundamental to women’s studies as its academic components.

As it says in the National Women’s Studies Association’s Constitution, the underlying goal of women’s studies departments is that of “transform[ing] the world” to one “free of oppression.” One can argue whether that goal is overly ambitious. It’s hard, however, to argue it isn’t political.  

One area in which this politicized agenda reveals itself in full is the euphemistically named “experiential learning” programs run by campus women’s centers. Not only do women’s centers approach issues in terms of a specific ideology, they also mobilize students to put that ideology into practice.

Such blatant activism is not how academic units at public universities are supposed to conduct themselves. The purpose of education at public universities — and in some cases, private — is not to advance ideologies; rather, it is to instill students with the capabilities to come to their own conclusions through properly academic methodologies.

GOODBYE, NETFLIX

Wednesday, May 23rd, 2018

 

Goodbye, Netflix

After about thirteen years of being a loyal customer of Netflix, the time has come for me to say goodbye.

This isn’t an easy decision for me.  I have been with the company since my mid-20s, back when Blockbuster stores were still on every street corner, and well before the online streaming technology or content was available.

Given that I’m a conservative, one might be inclined to believe that my choice to leave Netflix is predicated upon the company’s most recent decision to partner with Barack and Michelle Obama’s new company, called “Higher Ground Productions,” to produce loads of new content.  In a way, I guess that’s correct.  But this choice by Netflix has not alone led me to this decision.  Rather, this was the straw that finally broke the camel’s back – the latest in a series of indicators that the network has become little more than a propaganda arm for radical left-wing political actors.

Allow me to lay out the evidence.

THE UNRESOLVED IRS SCANDAL

Friday, May 11th, 2018

 

The Unresolved IRS Scandal

Congress should take tax collectors out of the business of regulating political activity.

EXCERPT FROM THIS ARTICLE :  A group that engages in politics is not necessarily considered a “political committee” by the IRS. Such well-known political actors as the Sierra Club, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People and Planned Parenthood engage through their affiliates in substantial activity related to politics—including get-out-the-vote drives, legislative advocacy and even candidate ads. But because the IRS designates the affiliate groups as “social welfare” organizations, they are subject to less-stringent disclosure requirements.

The tea-party groups that sprang up in 2009 sought to engage in these types of activities, but some Democrats didn’t like it. If the IRS denied these groups status as social-welfare organizations, they would be forced to either reorganize as for-profit organizations or as political committees subject to greater regulatory burdens. That’s how the IRS was able to hassle conservative groups.

Imagine if liberal groups discovered that President Trump’s Internal Revenue Service was targeting them for heightened scrutiny or harassment. The media and Democrats would decry this assault on the First Amendment and declare the U.S. on the brink of autocracy. The scandal would dominate the midterms, and the legitimacy of the election would be called into question.

Strangely enough, the IRS did target organs of the opposition party during the last administration, but the episode has largely faded from public memory without resolution. May 10 marks the fifth anniversary of the revelation that President Obama’s IRS targeted conservative groups for more than two years prior to the 2012 presidential election.

While some of the faces at the IRS have changed, the law that enabled their misuse of power has not. Congress’s failure to address the problem leaves the U.S. democratic process vulnerable to further abuses.

UC BERKELEY: ‘HARD TO DEFEND’ FREE SPEECH OF CONSERVATIVES WHO ‘INCITE’ LIBERAL STUDENTS

UC Berkeley: ‘Hard to defend’ free speech of conservatives who ‘incite’ liberal students

Report concludes campus ‘tolerant’ despite ‘popular narrative’ suggesting otherwise

– The Washington Times – Friday, May 4, 2018

A long-awaited report on free speech protections at the University of California, Berkeley, blames “hard to defend” conservative speakers for inciting left-wing students to violence.

A commission of Berkeley faculty, students formed in 2017 after violent and costly student protests called its commitment to free speech into question. Their monthslong study of the issue resulted in the conclusion that “ultra-conservative rhetoric” by the likes of Milo Yiannopoulos and Ann Coulter only exists to “advance a facile narrative that universities are not tolerant of conservative speech.”

“Contrary to a currently popular narrative, Berkeley remains a tolerant campus,” the report says, Politico reported Thursday. “Although those speakers had every right to speak and were entitled to protection, they did not need to be on campus to exercise the right of free speech. Indeed, at least some of the 2017 events at Berkeley can now be seen to be part of a coordinated campaign to organize appearances on American campuses likely to incite a violent reaction.”
