America’s Leftist universities are the poisonous trees and America’s newsrooms are the toxic, hate-filled fruit they bear.
I routinely rant and rave about the fact that America’s colleges and university systems are Ground Zero for the thinking that is destroying America. Whether it’s Third-Wave man-hating feminism, anti-white racism, BDS antisemitism, open borders demands, or some other idea attacking America’s integrity and core values, these really evil ideas are incubated on campus so that graduates can later take them out into the world. You can think of the campus and its professors as poisonous plants, with the students functioning as bees. Once heavily coated with the plants’ toxic pollen, they graduate and disseminate that pollen in the wider world.
Today’s really perfect example of the sickness that lurks in academia is Elizabeth Harman, an Associate Professor of Philosophy and the University Center for Human Values at Princeton. I’m not going to tell you what’s in the video. You must watch it on your own to understand fully what’s going on in America’s educational institutions, from the Ivy League down. All you need to know to watch it is that actors James Franco and Eliot Michaelson ask Harman to explain her philosophical view of abortion:
Harman’s logic, which is based upon temporally based magical thinking, would fit well in a Kindergarten class, assuming a 5-year-old was bereft of all moral decency. [UPDATE: Talking with a friend, I finally distilled the essence of Harman’s argument: The moral worth of your life is entirely dependent on whether your mother wants to kill you.]
That she is an Associate Professor of Human values at a school that admits only 6.4% of its applicants and that costs almost $64,000 per year for tuition and room & board is the most scathing indictment imaginable of those Blue voters who believe themselves morally superior to Trump voters. To the extent that people like Harman aren’t on the fringe of the Democrat party but operate at its core is reason enough never again to let Democrats near the levers of power.
Now that you’ve watched Harman’s amazing performance, imagine more than a decade’s worth of students taking her class, and heading out into the world, many as journalists. With that in mind, you can readily understand why a college graduated at CNN (and we know it’s a college graduate because non-graduates are “dirty” Red staters who could never work in any self-respecting mainstream media newsroom) would write the following headline for a CNN’s Antifa article: [Read more…]
