COLLEGE PROFESSOR: BELIEVING IN HARD WORK IS WHITE IDEOLOGY

College Professor: Believing in Hard Work is White Ideology

By Timothy Meads   September 30, 2017

Pennsylvania State University-Brandywine professor Angela Putman recently asserted in an academic paper that the notion “if I work hard, I can be successful” is merely a product of white ideology, reports Campus Reform.

Angela Putman conducted a study to critique and examine “ideologies within college students’ discourse that are foundational to whiteness.” Her resulting conclusion published on Thursday was that “meritocracy”, or the belief that people should rise based on the fruits of their own labor, is a “white ideology.” In her mind, this “white ideology” is unfortunately widely accepted in academia.

But, Professor Putman argues that professors can change this “ideology” by teaching students “how racism and whiteness function in various contexts, the powerful influence of systems and institutions, and the pervasiveness of whiteness ideologies within the United States.”

Putman believes that it is somehow a bad thing to teach students personal responsibility. Emphasizing a collectivist mindset, Putman puts forth the idea that Americans are falsely “socialized to believe that we got to where we are… because of our own individual efforts.”

This “ideology” she says, perpetuates whiteness and racism throughout society. Once students learn more about “white ideology,” they will hopefully “resist perpetuating and reifying whiteness through their own discourse and interactions,” and challenge systemic “manifestations of racism and whiteness.”

WARNING: CULTURE ROT – GRAPHIC VIDEO AND ARTICLE

Friday, September 15th, 2017

 

The contents of this article and videos are graphic and very disturbing.  The comments in blue are from John Pizzo who shared this article.      The Left has reached a new low.     Nancy

It’s becoming clear we can no longer live together in the same country anymore; perhaps the bigger question now becomes can we even live together on the same planet anymore – because we already seem to be living on separate planets.

It’s said there’s no such thing as bad press, and this certainly may be true if the case of criminal rapper Jahseh Onfroy is any indication.
Because a video he made in which he hangs a six-year-old white boy now has more than seven million views on YouTube.
The video, a re-release of the rapper’s “song” “Look at Me!” certainly did make people look at him. The 19-year-old Onfroy, whose stage name is XXXTentacion, is not only getting video hits but taking hits in the media. Yet the situation really should make us take a look at ourselves — only, not in the way Onfroy intends.
The video is meant, supposedly, as social commentary. Filled with vulgarity, words demeaning of women, and lewd sexual language, it portrays Onfroy leading a high-school class in beating up a white teacher, who is struck with phallic objects. It then switches to a scene of three hanged black men, one of whom is Onfroy. The next segment briefly presents the 1955 lynching of Emmett Till, the 2016 police shooting of Philando Castile, the 1991 Rodney King incident, the vehicular homicide of white woman Heather Heyer in Charlottesville, and the 2014 Ferguson riots. Then there’s the scene that put the video on the radar.
If you wish to see some video from this sub-human primate, you can see it here….
The white boy, and a black one, are walked to a place where a noose is hanging. Onfroy is then seen kneeling down and, after talking briefly to the two children, slips the noose over the white boy’s head and hangs him.

VIDEO – BILL WHITTLE WALKING INTO MORDOR – THE FRANKFURT SCHOOL

Monday, June 5th, 2017

This video was made in 2011 but is just as relevant today if not more so because of how successfully the Far Left and the Frankfurt School (Cultural Marxism) have been able to corrupt our culture. Thanks to Lynn Ross of South Carolina for sharing this video with us. Nancy

Oikophobia — fear and hatred of one’s own culture and people. It has brought down civilizations since there have been civilizations. And now we’re infected, too.

Find out how the negativity and self-loathing of modern Hollywood is just a small gear in the machine that brings down entire nations. What can we do about it? Well, we can walk right into the heart of Mordor and destroy the Ring of Power.

THE CULTURAL ROOTS OF CAMPUS RAGE

Sunday, April 2nd, 2017

 

Jonathan Haidt on the Cultural Roots of Campus Rage

An unorthodox professor explains the ‘new religion’ that drives the intolerance and violence at places like Middlebury and Berkeley.

April 2, 2017

New York

When a mob at Vermont’s Middlebury College shut down a speech by social scientist Charles Murray a few weeks ago, most of us saw it as another instance of campus illiberalism. Jonathan Haidt saw something more—a ritual carried out by adherents of what he calls a “new religion,” an auto-da-fé against a heretic for a violation of orthodoxy.

“The great majority of college students want to learn. They’re perfectly reasonable, and they’re uncomfortable with a lot of what’s going on,” Mr. Haidt, a psychologist and professor of ethical leadership at New York University’s Stern School of Business, tells me during a recent visit to his office. “But on each campus there are some true believers who have reoriented their lives around the fight against evil.”

These believers are transforming the campus from a citadel of intellectual freedom into a holy space—where white privilege has replaced original sin, the transgressions of class and race and gender are confessed not to priests but to “the community,” victim groups are worshiped like gods, and the sinned-against are supplicated with “safe spaces” and “trigger warnings.”

The fundamentalists may be few, Mr. Haidt says, but they are “very intimidating” since they wield the threat of public shame. On some campuses, “they’ve been given the heckler’s veto, and are often granted it by an administration who won’t stand up to them either.”

All this has become something of a preoccupation for the 53-year-old Mr. Haidt. A longtime liberal—he ran a gun-control group as an undergraduate at Yale—he admits he “had never encountered conservative ideas” until his mid-40s. The research into moral psychology that became his 2012 book, “The Righteous Mind: Why Good People Are Divided by Politics and Religion,” exposed him to other ways of seeing the world; he now calls himself a centrist.

PHOTOS – ICON LECTURE – DR. MIKE ADAMS, PhD, CULTURAL MARXISM IN OUR UNIVERSITIES

Tuesday, March 14th, 2017

 

Professor Mike Adams, PhD, UNC Wilmington, was the guest speaker at ICON Lectures on Tuesday, March 7, 2017.  The subject of his talk was the detrimental roles of Cultural Marxism campus-wide in the erosion of conservative values and the suppression of Constitutional rights, particularly concerning free speech.  Some of the issues he discussed included  campus safe spaces and hot  spots, trigger warnings, same-sex marriage, reverse discrimination and political correctness. 
Dr. Adams is Professor of Sociology and Criminology at UNC Wilmington and was awarded Professor of the Year for both 1998 and 2000.  His promotion was initially denied based on the university’s denouncement of his politically “incorrect” writings.  The US Court of Appeals found he had been illegally retaliated against, and ordered restitution. 
A video of Dr. Adam’s talk will be posted on the ICON website in about a week for those of you who were unable to attend the lecture or who live outside our immediate area.    www.iconlectureseries.com
The following photos were taken at the event.  Nancy
ICON’s next lecture will be on Tuesday, April 25. 2017  at 7 pm.    Lt.  General Daniel Bolger (ret), NCSU Assistant Professor and author of “Why We Lost” will be the guest speaker.  The subject of his talk will be Slow Death:  Assessing America’s War on Terrorism”.

PHOTOS – POLITICAL CORRECTNESS – DIANA WEST – ICON LECTURES

Wednesday, October 26th, 2016

 

  Diana West, author of “Death of the Grownup” and “American Betrayal” was the guest speaker at ICON’s event on Tuesday, October 18, 2016.  Political Correctness was the subject of her talk – What It Is, Where It Comes From and Why It Matters.  Diana referred to her research for  her book, “American Betrayal”  which documented  how Communists infiltrated  our government during the Roosevelt administration of the 1940’s.  Her further research has turned up evidence that the Marxists were actually actively working in this country as early as 1905.  During the 1930’s a group of Marxist professors from the Frankfurt School in Germany came to America and  established themselves first  at Columbia University and  then methodically started to spread their Cultural Marxism ideology within our university system.  By using  “Political Correctness”,  they were able to  silence those who opposed the stealth  attack on our traditional core  values which was designed to weaken our society from within.   
Through a news article about Diana’s talk, a coalition of Far Left groups organized a protest of Diana West  and made charges of “hate speech” .  When the Far Left feels threatened by the facts, they call it “hate speech”.  The protest  ended quietly but photos of some of their protest signs are at the end of the photos from the lecture.  There is also a photo of our  friend, Lee Green, holding up her sign as a counter protest to support free speech. 
A video of Diana’s talk  will be posted on our website – www.iconlectureseries.com in the next week so you will be able to listen to  Diana’s West’s  fascinating presentation.   You will not hear this subject matter being discussed anywhere else  in the media ! 
This was our last event of 2016 but 2017 is going to be an exciting year with our first speaker being Mike Adams, PHD, speaking on March 7, 2017, on “How U.S. Campuses Incubate and Enforce Cultural Marxism by using safe spaces  and speech codes. 
ICON’S lectures for the rest of 2017 are April 25 – “Slow Death:  Assessing America’s War on Terrorism”.     May 23 – “Impact of Mass Migration into the U.S.”   Sept 12 – “The Real Story on Climate Change” and October 17  “The Growing National Threat from Iran” 
Season tickets for 2017  are now available online at www.iconlectureseries.com along with a description of our five speakers that are already booked for 2017 ! 
Hope you enjoy the following photos that were taken at the event.   Nancy

WHO STOLE OUR CULTURE ? – CULTURAL MARXISM / FRANKFURT SCHOOL

Friday, September 30th, 2016

 

Who stole our culture?

Editor’s note: This column is an excerpt from Dr. Ted Baehr and Pat Boone’s new book “The Culture-wise Family: Upholding Christian Values in a Mass Media World.” In the book, entertainment expert Dr. Ted Baehr and legendary musician Pat Boone urge people to make wise choices for themselves and their families so they can protect their children from toxic messages in the culture.

The following is Chapter 10, written by historian Williams S. Lind.

William S. Lind has a B.A. in History from Dartmouth College and an M.A., also in History, from Princeton University. He serves as director of the Center for Cultural Conservatism of the Free Congress Foundation in Washington, D.C., and as a vestryman at St. James Anglican Church in his hometown of Cleveland, Ohio.

Sometime during the last half-century, someone stole our culture. Just 50 years ago, in the 1950s, America was a great place. It was safe. It was decent. Children got good educations in the public schools. Even blue-collar fathers brought home middle-class incomes, so moms could stay home with the kids. Television shows reflected sound, traditional values.

Where did it all go? How did that America become the sleazy, decadent place we live in today – so different that those who grew up prior to the ’60s feel like it’s a foreign country? Did it just “happen”?

It didn’t just “happen.” In fact, a deliberate agenda was followed to steal our culture and leave a new and very different one in its place. The story of how and why is one of the most important parts of our nation’s history – and it is a story almost no one knows. The people behind it wanted it that way.

What happened, in short, is that America’s traditional culture, which had grown up over generations from our Western, Judeo-Christian roots, was swept aside by an ideology. We know that ideology best as “political correctness” or “multi-culturalism.” It really is cultural Marxism, Marxism translated from economic into cultural terms in an effort that goes back not to the 1960s, but to World War I. Incredible as it may seem, just as the old economic Marxism of the Soviet Union has faded away, a new cultural Marxism has become the ruling ideology of America’s elites. The No. 1 goal of that cultural Marxism, since its creation, has been the destruction of Western culture and the Christian religion.

To understand anything, we have to know its history. To understand who stole our culture, we need to take a look at the history of “political correctness.”
