Fordham President Shames
College Republicans for
Inviting Ann Coulter

Breitbart´s Big Government, by Michael Patrick Leahy

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 11/16/2012 7:54:48 PM

When the Fordham College Republicans announced in early November they had invited conservative pundit Ann Coulter to speak at one of their club´s events on campus, University President Joseph McShane publicly pressured the club to rescind its invitiaton. Ted Conrad, a junior at Fordham and President of the Fordham College Republicans, announced Saturday that the club had rescinded the invitation to Ms. Coulter. The previous day, on Friday (two days after the initial invitation was announced), McShane sent out this bone-chilling campus wide email

The most shocking aspect of this action is that it doesn´t shock me at all. I have been inured to this Fascist Groupthink that passes for the sifting and winnowing of knowledge on our nation´s campuses.

Demonstrating once more that the most dangerous enemies of freedom of expression in America are our universities. It is clear from articles like this that administrators, who are supposed to be grown up and to know better have lost the very concept of the free marketplace of ideas. They simply do not understand the idea itself. And the pernicious practice of attributing significance to the opinions and demands of students continues to wreak havoc on what remains of institutions of higher learning. Somehow the notion has become accepted that students, who are basically still children, have the wisdom and knowledge to pronounce on complicated and contentious matters - that they have, in effect, come to university not to learn but to teach. This is irrational. It is nothing short of insane. And we have only to look around us and in the direction of the Oval Office to behold the inevitable consequences of such an absurd fantasy.

On sidebar: what is the idea behind all of the (very well done) Breitbart sites being named "Big" Something - is it supposed to be a play on " Big Tobacco", "Big Oil", and so forth?

FTA:
"Infanticide and euthanasia advocate Peter Singer will speak on Fordham´s campus the same week of the Coulter controversy."

I had to double check to make sure this wasn´t "The Onion."

FTA: "Her [Ann Coulter] rhetoric is often hateful and needlessly provocative—more heat than light—and her message is aimed squarely at the darker side of our nature."

But, Peter Singer is welcome. Guess McShane finds nothing hateful about euthanasia, abortion, and infanticide of severely disabled babies. Talk about the darker side of nature!

So much for the formerly liberal idea of hearing both sides of an issue.
Ms Coulter, should you actually read her work or listen to her, engages in hyperbole for the sake of emphasis.
Her speech is not hateful or demeaning.
She does, however, with great verve, debunk the great sacred cows of our time, such as the evil of the late Sen. Joseph McCarthy. McCarthy was right, but the evidence only came to light 40 years late.
The Society of Jesus has apparently abandoned its principles. It has adopted, instead, the principle of unreservedly supporting the religion of Statism. Forget Jesus, the Jesuits now support Obama. He is their savior now.
To ban the free expression of ideas is the death of a free society.

Are there any alumni who care?

Fascist pukes can´t deal with Anne´s intellect, so they insist on eliminating the right of the Republicans to invite speakers that they choose.

The name of the President "Shames" is prophetic. This coward SHAMES the university with his intellectual cowardice.

As I see it the problem with universities is that their administrations are now populated with the same people (and types of people) who protested the same universities in the ´60s. They were indoctrinated by communist rabble-rousers and demanded the Establishment to hear their voices.

Now that their fellow travelers have taken over higher education, they demand adherence to speech codes and work feverishly to deny certain students (ie organized groups of conservatives or Republicans) their rights to be heard.

So basically they continue to fight for free speech, as long as it´s speech they agree with.

Don´t worry...the "Good Germans" in our braindead liberal intelligentsia in academia will appoint and approve a "good public speaker", an eminence grise like Sandra Fluke or Van Jones or Bill Maher. Only an atheist liberal who believes in abortion on demand, the legalization of drugs, and who kowtows to the Pelosi/Reid/Obama/Fluke welfare state need apply for admission to teach university students.

As one who used to teach as a professor at a Jesuit school (Rockhurst University in Kansas City), I can attest first-hand that the Jesuit schools are part of the enemy in terms of the culture war. If you step foot on a Jesuit campus, you will notice that the things missing are Christian love, the true message of Christ, and Christian values. What you will find is political correctness, liberalism run amuck, "Tunnels of Oppression" (and other related nonsense), and a heathen value system where binge drinking, frat/sorority drunk-fests, and druge usage are the prevailing values.

LONDON — For the past three decades, many Britons had hoped the rigid class system that defined their country from Dickens to "Downton Abbey" was finally dying. Now they fear that class, their old bugbear, is back on the rise. From 1979, Britain was led for more than a decade by Margaret Thatcher, a grocer´s daughter, and then by John Major, the son of a music-hall entertainer. The current leader, David Cameron, is a descendent of King William IV whose Cabinet is stacked with men, like him, from the country´s toniest private schools and Oxford and Cambridge universities.

More ObamaCare Delays Won’t Save Dems

From its inception, the strategy behind the Obama administration’s implementation of ObamaCare has been simple: to frontload the benefits and postpone the pain and costs of this massive government intrusion into the private sector for as long as possible. This deceitful approach enabled President Obama run for reelection in 2012 on the spurious promise of extending insurance coverage to the poor and those with pre-existing conditions without being held accountable for the problems with the law that would only become apparent in his second term. Over the course of the last year, as the president’s signature accomplishment debuted with a

Late this afternoon, the Obama administration decided to delay for yet another year the health-care mandate that companies provide health insurance to their employees, this time to 2016. “It’s a double whammy here,” Charles Krauthammer said on Special Report tonight. Combining the recent CBO report finding that millions of Americans will choose to work less because of Obamacare and the people who will lose their jobs involuntarily as a result of the mandates, Obamacare is looking like a huge liability come November, Krauthammer explained. “They are getting tremendous complaints from small business that they can’t do this.

WASHINGTON — After news broke today that the Obama administration unilaterally decided to delay the health insurance mandate for medium-sized employers until 2016, Rep. Doc Hastings (R-Wash.) tweeted a cartoon of a football refs moving the goalpost farther and farther away from the end zone. “The Obama Administration once again moving the goalposts on #Obamacare,” Hastings tweeted. Beginning next year, businesses that employ 50 to 99 workers will have to report statistics to the government on how many employees are being offered or are receiving health insurance. These employers won’t be assessed penalties on the non-insured until 2016, though. Businesses

In the beginning, there was “The Bible,” the most-watched cable TV show of 2013. Following its flood of faith-inspiring success are three Bible-based movies set to open in theaters this year. The first, “Son of God,” is produced by the married couple who brought “The Bible” to the History Channel and into households across the country — producer Mark Burnett and actress Roma Downey. “We really believed that people would show up in droves, but 100 million people was a big number,” Mr. Burnett said of the 10-hour miniseries’ total audience. “Before we knew those results, we’d already started on

The 2016 Democratic presidential field is likely to run to the left of President Obama, partly because candidates will try to distance themselves from his political baggage while jockeying for an increasingly liberal base of voters, analysts predict. Prospective candidates and their surrogates insist it’s too early to tell what kind of standing Mr. Obama will have with voters and whether he will be seen as damaged goods the way President Bush was for Republicans in 2008. But discontent is brewing within the Democratic Party over what some see as Mr. Obama’s concessions to Republicans. Those Democratic voters will be

Count Polly Lower among those who quit their jobs because of the health-care law. It happened in September, when her boss abruptly changed her job description. She went from doing payroll, which she liked, to working on her boss’s schedule, which she loathed. At another time, she might have had to grit her teeth and accept the new position because she needed the health benefits. But with the health-care law soon to take effect, she simply resigned — and hasn’t looked back. “It was wonderful. It was very freeing,” said Lower, 56, of Bourbon, Ind., who is now babysitting her

The emergence of Twitter as a social media goliath has unleashed gossip and speculation as a media force. The long term consequences are unknowable, but in the meantime, with a far left president with a dicey past, it is producing some highly amusing results. Last night, President Obama explained to Bob Costas of NBC Sports why he wasn´t attending the Sochi Olympics, but the substance of what he had to say was lost in the controversy that erupted on Twitter over whether or not he was stoned. Yahoo writer Mike Oz took the high road, as would nearly any journalist, and described the president as looking "sleepy."

NBC whitewashed Russia´s communist legacy in the lead segment of its Friday broadcast of the opening ceremonies of the Winter Olympics in Sochi. Game of Thrones actor Peter Dinklage narrated the network´s lionization of the largest country by land mass: "Russia overwhelms. Russia mystifies. Russia transcends. Through every stage of its story, it´s resisted any notion of limitation. Through every re-invention, only redoubling its desire to cast a towering presence." However, Dinklage continued with a glorification of the Marxist-Leninist totalitarian state that slaughtered tens of millions of people between 1917 and 1991:

Six congressional Democrats flew aboard Air Force One — but none of the two dozen Republicans invited by Obama showed up. House Agriculture

BAGHDAD — A group of Sunni militants attending a suicide bombing training class at a camp north of Baghdad were killed on Monday when their commander unwittingly conducted a demonstration with a belt that was packed with explosives, army and police officials said. The militants belonged to a group known as the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, or ISIS, which is fighting the Shiite-dominated army of the Iraqi government, mostly in Anbar Province. But they are also linked to bomb attacks elsewhere and other fighting that has thrown Iraq deeper into sectarian violence.

In a new poll, she would lose a head-to-head contest with Democrat Hillary Clinton, 44 percent to 43 percent. Worse, she doesn´t even lead among those considering a GOP primary bid. Sen.

President Obama has broken many promises. One that he has not broken is his boast that he would "fundamentally transform America." He and his fellow Democrats are on the verge of doing just that by turning us into a nation of loafers. A loafer is an idle person who lives off others. Barack Obama seemingly has no problem with such people. He might even relate to them. He does have a serious problem with his own work ethic, and finds work boring.

Michael Sam, a University of Missouri defensive lineman and National Football League prospect, revealed on Sunday that he was gay.
