Student Government Demands Plaque on Lincoln Statue Recognizing Lincoln’s “brutality toward indigenous people”

Southerners are often ambivalent about Abraham Lincoln. While he freed the slaves and killed hundreds of thousands of our ancestors while destroying their property, he also promised to ship the ex-slaves out of the country. That would have been seen as the humane thing to do since it was clear that the ex-slaves would have enormous difficulty in adjusting to freedom.

Whatever the truth about Lincoln, there’s no good reason to allow campus leftists to force a plaque on his statue to the effect that he was a racist.

IJR

First it was Confederate generals. Then Christopher Columbus.

Opponents of the ongoing effort by the so-called “progressive” left to remove America’s historical statues and monuments they don’t like warned it wouldn’t stop there. It didn’t.

While the student government at the University of Wisconsin-Madison (ASM) hasn’t demanded the removal from campus of a statue of Abraham Lincoln — perhaps they knew it would be a nonstarter — they have demanded a plaque be placed near the statue of America’s 16th president.

As reported by The Daily Cardinal, the ASM called on UWM to acknowledge, on the plaque, Lincoln’s “brutality towards indigenous people.”

Spoiler: It ain’t gonna happen.

ASM Chair Katrina Morrison explained the reason for the demand:

“We wanted a plaque near Lincoln because we wanted the university to recognize his part in the Dakota 38 massacre. I think that [not putting a plaque on the statue] is a mistake, and I think that the history is irrefutable. It is clear that he played a huge role in the massacre and was killing innocent people for no reason.”

As is the case with art, history is often in the eye of the beholder — including the 1862 execution of 38 Dakota tribesmen in Mankato, Minnesota.

UWM Chancellor Rebecca Blank, who told the Cardinal there are no plans to place a plaque on Lincoln’s statue, had a different take than that of the ASM, saying Lincoln played a “restraining role” in the mass execution:

“[Lincoln] insists on personally weeding through all of this, and he ends up saying ‘I’m only going to take the sentences of those who we have evidence, witness evidence, that they were involved in either killing or raping, and everyone else we are going to dismiss charges on.’”

Blank said Lincoln refused a territorial governor’s proposal to execute 350 men for “murder and other outrages,” including rape, commuting the sentences of all but 38.

She explained the purpose of Lincoln’s statue on the UWM campus:

“Abe is actually here because he was the person who really created public universities in the states throughout this country in a very real way. do not see a reason to prominently label [the executions] on the Lincoln statue.”

But Mariah Skenandore, co-president of the indigenous student organization Wunk Sheek, said she’s “triggered” by the statue every time she sees it:

“They don’t acknowledge the impact that it is having on their students, and I’m impacted by [seeing the statue] every day. I think the plaque is the least the university can do.”

Sometimes, in today’s hyper-charged political environment, sensible lines are drawn in the sand and not allowed to be crossed. UWM Chancellor Rebecca Blank just drew one of those lines.

No Pomegranates Professor Goes Viral in Insane Classroom Rant (Viral Video)

An obviously feminist college teacher rants to a disinterested class the phrase “No pomegranates.” And a star is born.

‘No Pomegranates’ Video: Twitter Reacts To Professor’s Anti-Fruit Rant

Video emerged on Twitter and Reddit Thursday showing an instructor repeatedly denouncing pomegranates in a tirade that sees her repeating “No pomegranates!”

Update: Dr. Jane Martino responded to International Business Times regarding the event. She confirmed it was her leading the class in an exercise about the word “no.”

“We were discussing in class how meaningless the word ‘no’ is. I went into the rant to make sure my students knew the ‘rule.’ Before making a big deal about it the students were not thinking about them. Afterward they sure were! Tell your kids what to think about and just skip the ‘no’ part,” Martino told International Business Times.

Although the exact origins of the video showing the woman’s dramatic rant are still hazy at this point, Twitter user Luke Jonasson reposted the video from the popular Meninist account writing, “Best day of class I’ve had, DMACC pride baby Go Bears.” DMACC likely refers to Des Moines Area Community College, where a second angle of the same teacher’s rant is shown behind the laptop screen of a student taking a psychology course and several quizzes and tests.

“No pomegranates, no pomegranates, no pomegranates!” the psychology professor exclaims repeatedly. She continues the ‘no pomegranates’ rant as she attempts to draw out more emotion from the sleepy class as it chants behind her. “I don’t want them anywhere near here! Am I clear? Say the rule again. No pomegranates!” she continues in the video. In a separate video showing the same professor, she goes off on a similarly bizarre discussion regarding another fruit: kiwis.

Among the first replies to Luke Jonasson’s “best day of class” tweet is the alt-right Rebel Media figure, Jack Posobiec, known primarily for being retweeted by President Trump and attacking his critics on social media. Reactions varied widely, with many enjoying posting the video without any context and others suggesting on Reddit their personal theories as to why she hates pomegranates so much.

A Reddit thread entitled “Discrimination against Pomegranates” was posted early Thursday with bizarre, widely ranging reactions: “I would leave single pomegranate seeds in places she might find, that trigger is just too good not to pull,” read one comment. “I would love to haunt her with Pomegranates,” responded another devious Reddit user.

Outrage as Asian woman professor suggests Trump deserves blame for Las Vegas massacre

PROFESSOR TESSA WINKELMANN. DOESN’T LOOK WHITE TO ME.

After the story I explain why mystery meat Tessa Winkelmann lacks the intelligence to be a professor. Her anti-Trump rant raises serious questions about whether she should be a professor.

Since her bio list her as Tessa Ong Winkelmann, I assume that she is Asian. LOL. She’s an Assistant Professor of Ethnic Studies!!! Like you’re going to get honesty out of her!!! Read more about this worthless “scholar” here.

Fox News

A university professor in Las Vegas was filmed in class this week suggesting President Trump deserves some blame for the city’s shooting massacre because “all he’s done” is “encourage violence.”

“Right when he got elected, I told my classes, three semesters ago, that some of us won’t be affected by this presidency, but others are going to die,” University of Nevada, Las Vegas history professor Tessa Winkelmann said Thursday, according to video obtained by the Las Vegas Review-Journal. “Other people will die because of this. And we’ve seen this happen, right?”

Winkelmann cited Trump’s comments threatening military action against North Korea and argued “words, especially if they’re coming from someone who is the president, have consequences.”

“I don’t know that these events would have inevitably happened whether or not he got elected, but he has rhetorical powers every president has to encourage or to discourage,” she said of the Las Vegas shooting. “So far all he’s done is to encourage violence.”

Fifty-eight people were killed about 500 were injured in the attack when Stephen Paddock opened fire from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay casino at attendees of a country music concert.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reported that a student told them Winkelmann’s comments polarized the classroom and students began shouting at each other.

The comments have since been criticized by both the university and the White House. Winkelmann has also issued an apology.

“While we respect academic freedom in the classroom and the right to free speech, we believe the comments were insensitive, especially given the series of events this week and the healing process that has begun in the community,” UNLV spokesman Tony Allen said.

“It is sad she is teaching students such divisive, inaccurate and irresponsible rhetoric,” said White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. “She should be ashamed of herself, and the university should look into it. What a terrible example to set for students.”

Winkelmann expressed regret about her comments to the newspaper.

“This week has been very difficult for members of our community, and we have allowed students space in our classes to discuss how they have been affected and to openly convey their feelings,” Winkelmann said. “I regret that my comments caused more pain during this difficult time. Emotions were running high and I wish I would have been more thoughtful in how I directed the conversation.”

Why Tessa Winkelmann’s intellect is too deficient to teach at the university level:

1. She seems to think that mass shootings never occurred until Donald Trump became president.

2. Barack Obama launched drone strikes that have killed thousands of nonwhite civilians in the Middle East. Trump’s body count is much, much lower.

3. Winkelmann ignores that in Chicago every month more people are killed than in the Las Vegas shootings. She completely ignores the culture of violence among blacks.

4. The professor gives the Jewish entertainment industry a pass while blaming Donald Trump for the massacre. Rap and Hollywood crap movies have a stronger influence on culture than Trump. They’ve been at it much longer than him.

5. There are 350 million or so people in Amurkistan, the former USA. One of them (or possible more if there were multiple shooters) caused the Las Vegas massacre. If Trump were responsible for the shootings, he would surely have influenced more people to commit mass murder.

To summarize, Winkelmann is incapable of deep, sophisticated thinking.

She’s unfit to be a professor. She should be fired. Her remarks in the classroom indicate she wastes student time and money. As an Assistant Professor, she doesn’t have tenure, so she can be fired easily.

Drunk White Kid Leaves Street Sh*tter Girlfriend Behind to Die After Crashing Car

MICHAEL CAMPBELL AND GIRLFRIEND RIA PATEL. SHE’S DEAD.

Michael Campbell may be just a youth, but he’s old enough to know better.

He’s irresponsible, a coward, and a race mixing oil driller.

It’s disturbing to see a white youth end up like this at such a young age.

New York Post

A Minnesota man accused of being “super drunk” when he caused a car crash that killed his 20-year-old girlfriend was also charged with running away from the scene of the fatal wreck, authorities said.

Michael Laurence Campbell, 21, of Minneapolis, was charged Wednesday with two counts of criminal vehicular homicide in the death of 20-year-old Ria Patel, who was killed early Sunday after Campbell’s Ford Focus slammed into a traffic light in Minneapolis.

“[A witness] then watched Campbell get out of the car and run to a nearby McDonald’s,” Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman announced in a news release. “She called 911 and then saw Campbell return to the car and dig around for something in the driver’s side of the vehicle. The witness walked toward him and Campbell told her to call 911.”

The woman then told Campbell that she had and police were on the way, prompting him to run toward a parking lot, according to the criminal complaint.

Another witness at the scene spotted Campbell running through the parking lot before he jumped a fence along a highway exit ramp. Emergency workers soon arrived and tried unsuccessfully to save Patel after finding her in the crumpled car. No visible skid marks were found at the scene.

Campbell, who was on probation for a misdemeanor hit-and-run conviction last January, left his wallet at the scene and was arrested two days later, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reported.

“Friends there said they did not know he had left the house and one described him as ‘super drunk’ earlier in the morning,” Freeman announced Wednesday.

Campbell was taken to a hospital before being booked into jail. He told investigators he fled the scene because he was “traumatized by seeing the state” of Patel after the early morning wreck.

Patel, a junior at the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, was remembered late Thursday by about 300 people who gathered on the school’s campus as someone who loved to dance and got along with just about anyone.

“She lived such exuberance and had a zest for life,” Patel’s roommate, Kelly Swanson, told the newspaper. “She was taken too soon.”

Campbell, who was ordered held on $250,000 bail during a court appearance Thursday, remained in custody as of early Friday, jail records show. It was unclear if he hired an attorney.

I’ll save my sympathy for a white youth who deserves it. Campbell is a loser, not representative of my people.

Lock him up and throw away the key. I don’t care. And white girls should avoid him like he’s diseased.

Leftist Antifa Expert Draws Dartmouth Faculty Support for Allegedly Advocating Violence Against “Nazis”

DR. MARK BRAY. ALLEGEDLY ENDORSES ANTIFA VIOLENCE.

Die Nazi Scum.

We’re seen the signs at so-called counterprotests held by the Antifa. We’ve also seen them attack people they consider to Nazis, which is anyone who disagrees with them.

Since the Anitfa petition went viral and caught everyone’s attention, I wonder if the faculty who supported the Antifa feel any embarrassment. The press moved from support to condemnation of the Communist/anarchists in a flash when it became expedient to do so. Professors haven’t been coming out against the Antifa that I know of.

Mark Bray should be fired for advocating violence, if that accusation is true. It’s one thing to hold political opinions, but entirely another thing to use the bully pulpit of the classroom and the TV interview to push others to go out and violate the law by attacking people with bike locks and baseball bats.

The New American

On August 21, Dartmouth College president Philip J. Hanlon issued a relatively mild public statement disavowing recent comments by one of the college’s lecturers in support of the violent actions of the anarcho-communist group Antifa. Now, more than 100 Dartmouth faculty members have signed a letter in support of the lecturer, Dr. Mark Bray, and are calling upon Dr. Hanlon to retract his statement.

Dr. Bray is the author of Antifa: The Anti-Fascist Handbook, and since the deadly battle in Charlottseville, Virginia, between Antifa cadres and neo-Nazis on August 12, he has shot to stardom, thanks to friendly interviews with NPR, CNN, NBC, Slate, Vox, Vice, and more.

As we noted in our August 29 article, Liberal Media: Cheerleaders for “Antifa” Communist Thugs, the violent Antifa extremists have been generously showered with sympathetic coverage by much of the media. On August 14, for example, Yahoo! News posted a story titled, “As neo-Nazis grow bolder, the ‘antifa’ has emerged to fight them.” Like many similar reports in the “mainstream” media, the article paid an obligatory nod to objectivity by quoting Antifa critics, but the upshot for many readers will be: “Finally, someone is standing up to the Nazi-KKK bullies!”

The masked, black-clad Antifa radicals scored a big media boost from NBC shortly after Charlottesville when Meet The Press featured a powderpuff interview by Chuck Todd of Mark Bray on August 16. Todd then brought Bray back for another friendly gabfest on August 20. Bray, a longtime militant activist and a visiting lecturer in Gender Studies at Dartmouth College, publicly let it be known that he is a supporter of Antifa. In other words, he is not coming under criticism merely because he is a scholar who has written a book about a subject he has researched. He has not, as far as we know, publicly admitted to taking part in violent and illegal Antifa activities, but he vocally endorses their actions and is viewed by both supporters and opponents as the chief theoretician and “public intellectual” of the militant movement. Bray previously wrote a sympathetic book promoting the Occupy Wall Street movement, which provided the training ground where the Antifa leaders recruited many of their activists, refined their Marxist-Leninist rhetoric, and honed their violent communist tactics.

Media Research Center (MRC) president Brent Bozell condemned the NBC whitewash of Antifa. “Violent leftists have broken into the mainstream and Chuck Todd is guilty of aiding and abetting,” Bozell charged. “It is abhorrent that NBC and Todd believe it acceptable to normalize extremist groups like Antifa which use terror to silence their opposition.”

Bozell continued: “After the initial interview with Bray, Chuck Todd had the opportunity to correct his mistake but instead chose to again allow a radical to promote domestic terrorism with little push back. Can you imagine Chuck Todd inviting a member of a militant right-wing group on his show to rationalize violence against the left? NBC must cease giving legitimacy to supporters of this violent left-wing movement immediately.”

A letter to President Hanlon defending Bray, reportedly signed by more than 100 Dartmouth faculty members, goes a long way to confirming charges (as if more confirmation were necessary) that much of academia has become totally dominated by the far-left. Bray’s Dartmouth comrades see no problem with his support for Antifa’s violent approach to shutting down speech of opponents. Antifa violence, of course, is not only limited to censoring speech, nor is it directed only at genuine fascists and racists. As we have seen repeatedly (and as we will show presently) the black-clad goons broadly apply the “fascist” label and viciously attack anyone who stands in the way of their radical anarchist-communist agenda.

The Dartmouth supporters cite the cornucopia of media attention Bray has received as evidence of his importance as a scholar, and then note that even more media glory is on the way with his upcoming nationwide book tour. “With the appearance last week of his new book on the subject — which has already sold 10,000 copies and been reviewed in the New Yorker–he is embarking on a 30-city book tour,” the faculty letter breathlessly relates. “He is speaking by invitation at campuses like Duke, NYU, and Colby. In short, his historical expertise is in demand around the country and internationally.”

Colleges Expect Trouble, with Richard Spencer and MILO in the Thick of It

The so-called Dangerous Faggot has been laying low for months after his comments about underage sex were broadcast far and wide by the media that seeks to discredit White Identity, White Nationalism, and whatever other manifestations of the white racial awakening have united under the alt-right banner.

But you can’t keep a good faggot down. MILO Yiannopoulos says he’s going back to Berkeley. The last time he was there, professional rioters were allowed free rein, thus associating nationalist impulses with violence in the public mind.

Likewise, White Identitarian Richard Spencer plans to speak at colleges and universities this year.

While we know that MILO is not one of us, Spencer has been proclaimed by the media to be the leader of our movement.

I don’t know whether Spencer is a crypto-Jew as some have been proclaiming recently. What I do know is that we have to make more white people see the advantages of banding together as a special interest group. We’re a notoriously individualistic people, which is good except when it comes to facing off a against a federal government which is hostile to our interests.

In my opinion, MILO no longer has much power to damage our effort to join forces with each other as white people. Spencer is a different story.

Charlottesville looks a lot like a set up intended to discredit the alt-right and disempower white people through collective guilt tripping. If it was a set up, it’s hard not to see how Spencer wasn’t involved in setting it up to turn off normies toward White Nationalism.

Earlier this month, white nationalist leader Richard Spencer rallied hundreds of torch-bearing followers for a march through the heart of the University of Virginia that began a weekend of rage and violence. He hopes to go back to Charlottesville soon.

“Colleges and universities are a great venue,” Spencer said. “I will never give those up.”

As the fall semester begins, schools across the United States are girding for fights over controversial speakers after an incendiary year that began with clashes at the University of California at Berkeley and worsened at U-Va. One by one in the days since the Charlottesville mayhem on Aug. 11 and 12, major public universities have shut their doors to Spencer and his followers. Their decisions illuminate the challenge of balancing campus values, security concerns and free speech protections.

The First Amendment “does not require a public institution to risk imminent violence to students and others,” University of Florida President W. Kent Fuchs said as the school denied a request from Spencer’s National Policy Institute that sought to rent a venue on campus for an event featuring Spencer.

OH NO, MILO’S BACK. HE DOESN’T REPRESENT ME IN ANY WAY.

Duke University Stealthily Removes Vandalized Robert E. Lee Statue

Normal people would be disturbed by acts of property damage done for any reason, but especially for political purposes.

A dirty thug inflicted the damage on a work of art at Duke University earlier this week. You can see it in the photo above.

If that work of art were not Confederate general Robert E. Lee, then the university administration would be in an uproar, offering reward money for information leading to an arrest and conviction.

Duke’s response was to slander Lee and remove the likeness of him from Duke Chapel, where it had been housed.

NOLA

DURHAM, N.C. (AP) — Duke University removed a statue of Gen. Robert E. Lee early Saturday after it was vandalized amid a national debate about monuments to the Confederacy.

The university said it removed the carved limestone likeness before dawn from the entryway to Duke Chapel, where it stood among 10 historical figures. Officials discovered early Thursday that the statue’s face had been gouged and scarred and that part of the nose is missing.

Another statue of Lee, the top Confederate general during the Civil War, was the focus of the violent protest in Charlottesville, Virginia, that turned deadly a week ago.

Duke University president Vincent Price said in a letter to the campus community that he consulted with faculty, staff, students and alumni before deciding to remove the statue.

“I took this course of action to protect Duke Chapel, to ensure the vital safety of students and community members who worship there, and above all to express the deep and abiding values of our university,” Price said in the letter.

VINCENT PRICE, PRES., DUKE U. EVEN LOOKS LIKE A WEAKLING.

Durham has been a focal point in the debate over Confederate statues after protesters tore down a bronze Confederate soldier in front of a government building downtown on Monday. Eight people face charges including rioting and damaging property. Days later, hundreds marched through Durham in a largely peaceful demonstration against racism before an impromptu rally at the stone pedestal where the statue stood.

Other monuments around North Carolina also have been vandalized since the Charlottesville protest, and calls are growing to take down a Confederate soldier statue from the campus of the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill.

Gov. Roy Cooper has urged the removal of Confederate monuments from public property around the state, though his goal would be difficult to achieve because of a 2015 state law prohibiting their removal.

Duke is a private university and outside the scope of that law.

The Lee statue had stood for about 85 years between two other historical figures of the American South, Thomas Jefferson and poet Sidney Lanier, along the main entryway to the neo-Gothic church at the center of Duke’s campus. It was moved into storage at 3 a.m. Saturday and its future is undetermined, university spokesman Michael Schoenfeld told the Herald-Sun of Durham.

“We want people to learn from it and study it and the ideas it represents. What happens to it and where it will be is a question for further deliberation,” Schoenfeld said. The decision was supported by the university’s trustees, Schoenfeld said.

Duke has been affiliated since its founding with the United Methodist Church. Luke Powery, dean of Duke Chapel, said Saturday he sees the empty space formerly occupied by the Lee statue as creating a new opportunity to heal the ongoing racism problems confronting the country.

The gap “in many ways represents a hole in the heart of the United States and the ongoing struggles of racism, hatred and bigotry – all the things we’re seeing in our streets. We haven’t come as far as perhaps we thought we had come as a nation,” Powery said.

LUKE POWERY. DEAN OF DUKE CHAPEL.

Yes, I agree with Dr. Powery about all the racism, hatred, and bigotry. It’s certainly in the streets. That racism stains the streets with the blood of European-Americans shot and stabbed by nonwhites, primarily blacks, every day.
