I am always amazed that the loudmouths from the sixties’ campuses are now in charge of most universities and are the worst offenders about squelching free speech on campus. Maybe it’s because they’re the ones in charge now?

We all know why the Watermelons (Green outside, red inside) want America to fail. A failed state is ripe for totalitarian takeover. Just ask the Germans, the Russians, the Chinese, the Cubans, the Venezuelans, the Vietnamese, the Rhodesians (if you can find any), soon the Argentinians. and on and on and on
And to remind you of how long the Watermelon totalitarians and their media accomplices have been working on this:
From Newsweak (sic) April, 28, 1975
By using billions of dollars in federal funding to strong arm states to adopt national standards of dubious quality, the Obama administration has raised federal intrusion into education to new heights, transferring control over the nation’s classrooms to anonymous federal bureaucrats, special interest lobbies, and insider experts, ultimately rendering parents and taxpayers powerless.
The Marching Morons as federal policy for it’s citizenry.
BTW yhe linked article’s author used “median” as a synonym for average instead of midpoint, proving the point. “Mean” is the synonym for average.
CBS News takes a look at 11 more Solyndras that were part of Obama’s Energy Program (January 13, 2012)
When the perp-traitore of the “pixie dust and unicorn farts” energy scams (those that want Americans shivering in the dark so they might more easily control them) lose the home of “fake but accurate” network news, you have to wonder. Don’t you?
From John Stossel’s blog:
This video, which features an interview with legendary author Neil Gaiman, is a lighthearted look at how the University of Wisconsin–Stout backed down from its censorship of Professor James Miller’s posters, one featuring a quote from the science fiction show Firefly, and the other condemning fascism. Stout stood by its actions until FIRE’s advocacy campaign on Miller’s behalf inspired Gaiman, along with Firefly actors Nathan Fillion and Adam Baldwin, to take to Twitter to encourage their millions of followers to contact the university with their support of free speech.
I have to wonder if the prof had hung a poster with Abu Huraira’s quote of the Prophet as saying,”…a tree would say: Muslim, or the servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me; come and kill him…” if the brain dead campus cop would have considered that a threat or conceded it to be “protected speech”?
Founded in 2009 by Ray Kurzweil and Peter Diamandis, Singularity University is a start-up university in Silicon Valley. SU’s mission is “…to assemble, educate and inspire a cadre of leaders who strive to understand and facilitate the development of exponentially advancing technologies to address humanity’s challenges.”
Singularity University is not your father’s college.
In August of 2011, Reason.tv’s Paul Feine and Alex Manning traveled to Singularity University to get to know a few of the 80 students who participated in SU’s 10-week interdisciplinary summer graduate program. We encountered a fascinating group of young entrepreneurs who have big plans to use technology to help the world’s poor…and make a profit!
You will be shocked to know what colleges are censoring on campus. First Amendment expert Greg Lukianoff from thefire.org talks to Glenn Reynolds about efforts by colleges and universities to kill free speech. Hear what happened when a University of Wisconsin Stout professor put a poster on his door with a quote from the TV show Firefly.
