Hillary's Vast Right-Wing Cons...
https://www.foxnews.com/us/new-jers...utbreak-f-each-and-every-trump-supporter

An overgrown Rutgers associate professor of something called "Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies" makes the following brilliant observations. This bloated fool is "teaching" kids!


“F--- each and every Trump supporter. You absolutely did this. You are to blame,” (for Covid).

"I have tenure. Rutgers won't be firing me for tweets." (of course not)

She writes that recent efforts to reopen the country following stay-at-home orders were “all about a gross necropolitical calculation that it is Black people who are dying disproportionately from COVID.” (damn slick of whitey, don't you think?) necropolitical calculation??-I bet she coined that one.

"“They are literally willing to die from this clusterf---ed COVID response rather than admit absolutely anybody other than him [Trump] would have been a better president,” she wrote. “And when whiteness has a death wish, we are all in for a serious problem.” (I honestly don't understand the last sentence, but I gather she had a problem with whiteness-and white people in general not surprising)

"But the depths of white depravity — the adamant refusal to be swayed by facts, reason or the value of life itself, especially when those lives are Black — it staggers me."

AND THIS IS A REAL BEAUTY! Cooper has a history of criticizing President Trump. Last October she asserted the president’s policies were partly to blame for weight problems among African-American women. (!!!!) She ought to look in the mirror (if she can fit all of herself in) to fix blame for that one.


Joe Biden has spent his entire life trying to succeed in presidential politics,and now he has. Too bad he’s not there to enjoy it.

These are the people who are teaching the next generation, and the taxpayers are funding it. It's time to stop.

This is nothing but pure racist hate.

Why do you think kids come out of college loving the left?

Probably because they study the facts of how society is structured and how reasonable structures and systemic solutions are ignored?
Gee it's fun to be outraged by specific profs among the thousands out there.
Sure, mikezpen's Rutgers prof seems wacko.
My point (and I do have one) is that I could list the comments from rightys that are as nutty.
The difference being that many are past or presently part of the administration or listened to by the chief pooperoo.
Alex Jones by himself broadcasts far more nuttiness to millions than the total faculty of leftist bent at hundreds of schools.

So why are they ignored by mzp & TBP? Because they don't pass the lefty nut filter. And because the sources read by the above have an agenda to publicize that which ramps up righty outrage.
If there had been even one post by them here that spoke to wacko rightys there might be some justification for the outrage they express.

And having attended one Ivy league and two (presumably lefty) midwest schools (Oberlin & CWRU) I can attest that the personal politics of profs had little to do with what they taught.
The one prof whose politics I really remember was an appreciator of Facism who taught at Oberlin.
My kids attended U. of Chicago, Clark U. and Boston Univ. a lot more recently. U. of Chicago made my son a Catholic and an appreciator of St Augustine.
Clark/Boston U. got my daughter to go into the Peace Corps and then Public Health. Oh those insidious lefties!

I expect no answer other than a reiteration that faculty are overwhelmingly lefty.

Alex Jones is on the right? Really? Most on the right think he's an idiot; some think he's a plant. He is NOT any variety of conservative or libertarian.

Pogo, Michelle Malkin is an Oberlin alumna, and she would utterly disagree with you about the professors' politics.

It's likely that you don't notice it for the same reason you don't notice the bias in the media: it is pretty much the same as yours, and they reflect each other. It's hard for us to see biases in those who share ours.

And BTW, we've had this discussion before. Fascism is a form of socialism. The difference between fascism and communism is the difference between maroon and burgundy.

And BTW, study after study, poll after poll shows that faculty at most "institutions of higher learning" are heavily leftist -- not just liberal, but leftist. There are a handful of exceptions to that, and being the exception is one of the reasons they stand out.

And he's not polluting the minds of impressionable college kids and being paid to do it. You don't have tune in to Alex Jones. Maybe some profs who taught you seemed perfectly rational because you were already to the left yourself, but they might have been liberal as hell.

Timmer,
I appreciate your reiterating the statement that faculty is predominantly leftist.
It's always nice when somebody says exactly what you predict they will.

A few points.
1. You really don't get it. I never spoke to the personal politics of college faculty. I attended Oberlin. I knew quite a few of the faculty. I would bet that if I took a poll of
the causes that faculty support you would find more supported things that you and mikezpen would class as liberal or leftist, than things that I would class as conservative or right wing.
But the point is that I would have to bet as to their personal politics. When I took courses there was no illustrative bias in what was taught.
The Government department was the most prestigious and was led by Robert Tufts, most famous for being the major thinker working for George Marshall designing the Marshall Plan.
By today's standards I know that would make him a liberal. History, which was my major, discussed how and why societies developed, in the context of what actually happened. Not taught by any of my professors
via ideology. Your person "who attended Oberlin" may have had a different experience. My son didn't get a lot of idealogical stuff at U. of C. But if he were an economics major, he certainly would have.

2. And before I read you saying it, I certainly knew the right wing dismissal of Fascism (or for that matter racist and anti-semetic groups) as being inherently socialist &/or leftist. Your reiteration doesn't make it true.
Of course conservatives want to separate themselves from something that if they have any principles, they abhor.
Here you are talking about something that I actually have knowledge. I could go into the history of how fascism developed in European countries. And certainly into the history of socialism here and elsewhere.
Communism and Fascism share a lot of characteristics. Democratic Socialism does not. They are all populist when out of power, using the standard definition of populism,
"A political approach that strives to appeal to ordinary people who feel that their concerns are disregarded by established elite groups." Of course that definition also includes Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders.

But Communism in power is no more Socialist than you are. And both it and Facism in power are the antithesis of populist. They are run by and for elites. With no recourse or real dissent.

Again, the point is that you have a filter that seems to only see or find things that reinforce your attitudes. I may have the same problem. But picking out wackos is easy in our diverse society. They are out there.
You deny Jones is a conservative. Okay, then you should abhor the love Trump has for him. Assuming the accuracy of mikezpen's description, I'll deny that his prof is actually of the left. Real politics should be grounded in reality. She does not seem to be.
