Ignorance Legitimized And Institutionalized In ‘Women’s and Gender Studies’ Departments

Ancient History, Cultural Marxism, Education, English, Gender, Intelligence

It’s safe to say that Brittney Cooper, I mean Prof. Brittney Cooper, is not an outlier in the American academy, but is part of a certain establishment.

That bastion is the Department of Women’s and Gender Studies, of which there are very many across the country. It serves as a citadel of pseudo-intellectualism, a way to create a class of “scholars” on paper.

Prof. Brittney Cooper, who has a B.A. in English, was jabbering banalities about the horrors of Trump on MSNBC (10/3/019), when she blurted out that Trump was “delegitimating” wrongdoing, or something.

“Delegitimating” is a “word not found in the Dictionary and Encyclopedia.”

Like the word she used, Prof. Cooper’s field of study is bogus.

“Intellectual disciplines were founded in ancient Greece and gained a considerable impetus from the work of Aristotle who identified and organized a range of subjects into orderly bodies of learning.” (Keith Windschuttle, The Killing of History, 1996, NSW, Australia.)

By the standards set by the Greeks, disciplines such as women’s studies, or black studies, or LGBTQ studies are intellectually incoherent; they don’t qualify as intellectual disciplines.

UPDATE IX (6/23/019): Blocked By Twitter

Business, Cultural Marxism, Free Speech, Ilana Mercer, Left-Liberalism, Liberty, Technology

Twitter has blocked my account and is trying to extort a phone number from me. I never give these shysters any—but any—contact other than my public email. I can’t fathom why people give in and share personal information like a mobile phone number with these crooks.

I am literally off-the-grid when it comes to my mobile phone. (Why so weak? Resist. Stand for individualism.) The Twitter blocking is probably because I shared an innocent email of a terribly ugly Paris-based building, embodying “nihilism and liberalism.”

This accurate description of Paris’ modern aesthetic ethos came via—OMG!— Richard Spencer. Ridiculous. Fuck Twitter. Their patronizing time-out for those of us who do no conform is pathetic.

UPDATE I (4/16/019): There is Right and there are Israel Firster, neocon Republicans like Ben Shapiro. We of the Old True Right are the true victims of censorship. The other establishment elites just get together on Fox News to kvetch about how libtards, who don’t know Left from Right, make them sad. As for President Donald J. Trump: He has generally defended the fake right. Or, as Jack Kerwick calls it, the Big Con.

UPDATE II: This might have been what got my Twitter account restricted. What’s objectionable about it? Asking why Millennial morons get to censor speech? The question itself is objectionable.

UPDATE III (4/17): Thanks to all who have shared my plight.

Via Gab:  

Author and Townhall.com writer @ILANAMERCER was recently censored and deplatformed by Twitter for wrongthink, so I figured I would highlight her recent work here on /g/GreatAwakening to help compensate. Here’s one of her more recent columns on the Mueller probe, in which she makes some interesting points about the way the Cabal stitches its storylines together …

MORE.

General Gab thread is here.

UPDATE IV (4/20/019): This is what the shakedown notice looks like to the Twitter account holder, who’s been placed on time-out by his or her moral superiors at Twitter:

“Excellent.”

Image result for excellent mr burns

“We will make the political pariah cough-up her most private information, or else she’ll remain in the doghouse.”

UPDATE V (22/4):

UPDATED VI (5/27/019): Removing Followers. Oh, yes.

UPDATE VII: (6/20/019): 

Top #Borders hashtags on Twitter are all radically liberal. What a fucking farce.  My #Borders hashtags go nowhere but to my Followers, who dwindle by the day (while on Gab, they increase).

https://twitter.com/hashtag/Borders?src=hash

UPDATE VIII: (6/5/019):

Twitter has blocked my account for the 2nd time in 2 months (April’s blocking: http://barelyablog.com/blocked-by-twitter/).

And some of you still think Ben Shaprio, neocon and Israel-Firster extraordinaire, threatens the status quo in any meaningful way. Some of you actually believe establishment elites when they get together on Fox News to kvetch about how libtards, who don’t know their Left from their Right, make them sad. As for President Donald J. Trump: He has generally defended the fake right. Or, as Jack Kerwick calls the object of Trump’s support: The Big Con.

I’ll eventually do something about getting unblocked. My woke readers (rightist-woke) have shown me the way on that front. But, for now, I’ll enjoy the peace away from the disorganized group-think of Twitter. (Gab is great; I’m there.)

UPDATE IX (6/23/019):

Justin Amash “faux-libertarian viewpoints … echo that of the billionaire oligarchs Koch Brothers. … He opposes “removing Big Tech’s sweetheart exemptions in Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act.”

NEW COLUMN: It’s Not ‘Identity Politics,’ It’s Anti-White Politics

Crime, Cultural Marxism, Education, Multiculturalism, Race, The West

NEW COLUMN is “It’s Not ‘Identity Politics,’ It’s Anti-White Politics.” It’s now on WND.COM, the Unz Review and Townhall.com (slightly abridged).

An excerpt:

Every time a manifestly racist, anti-white event goes down, which is frequently, conservative media call it “identity politics.” “The left is playing identity politics.”

Whatever is convulsing the country; it’s not identity politics. For, blacks are not being pitted against Hispanics. Hispanics are not being sicced on Asians, and Ameri-Indians aren’t being urged to attack the groups just mentioned. Rather, they’re all piling on honky. Hence, anti-white politics or animus.

The ire of the multicultural multitudes is directed exclusively at whites and their putative privilege. Anti-whitism is becoming endemic and systemic.

Take “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett. Smollett deceived the country and the Chicago Police Department about having fallen prey to a hate crime, which, it transpired, he had crudely orchestrated.

The Chicago Police Department superintendent expressed the requisite righteous indignation that a black man (Smollett) would desecrate symbols of black oppression in the process of framing innocent Others. (A noose had been purchased at Smollett’s behest.)

Nobody, Superintendent Eddie Johnson included, said sorry to the accused group, whose reputation had been sullied: “Trump supporters or white persons.”

“Trump supporters” is indeed a proxy for “white persons.” The conflation of “white” and “Trump supporter” was made, for one, by an anti-white, anti-Trump, professional agitator: Trevor Noah of the “Daily Show.” Noah is neither funny nor very bright, but he is right, in this instance.

Conservatives, for their part, persist in skirting the white-animus issue. The Smollett libel fit the “progressive narrative,” they intoned. (Overuse has made the “narrative” noun a bad cliché.)

It was a right vs. left matter, insisted others.

Smollett was sick in the head, came another obfuscation. What would public expiation and excuse-making be without the rotten habit of diseasing misbehavior?! His antics might still make him a big-time actor, but Smollett is a small-time crook, a common criminal of low character. To disease immorality is a corruption of traditional conservative thinking.

We have here a politicization of crime, reasoned other compromising conservatives.

Come again? What is the hate-crime category if not a politicization of crime? With the hate crime designation, we are essentially saying that a murder committed with racial malice is worse than one committed without it. Is that a normative call or a political one? I’d say the latter.

Some conservatives remarked that the Smollett affair occurred against the backdrop of Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS). Is TDS not a proxy for the white-hot hatred of whites?

Four minutes and 13 seconds in, a video filmed at the Washington State Evergreen College gives way to softly hissed, but deranged, diatribes by faculty. Theirs is unadulterated, anti-white agitprop. Yet the TV host who screened this pedagogic incitement chuckles lightheartedly about secondary, lesser issues like victimhood chic. Never once is the thing called what is it:

Incessant and dangerous incitement to hate innocent whites for their alleged pigmental privilege. …

READ THE REST. NEW COLUMN, “It’s Not ‘Identity Politics,’ It’s Anti-White Politics,” is now on WND.COM and the Unz Review.

UPDATED (10/16/018): Christine Blasey Ford Is A Hero, Says Professor Ho From University Of North Carolina

Cultural Marxism, Culture, English, Feminism, Gender, Human Accomplishment

Jennifer Ho is a professor of English (not the English I love and know, but a thing called “Critical Theory”) at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill’s Department of English and Comparative Literature. Yes, the appropriately named Ho teaches your kids (and you, alas, allow her to have at them).

Ho instructs young people about literature—but also about who they should and should not hold up as heroes.

And a hero, to Prof. Ho, is an individual like Christine Blasey Ford, “the college professor who accused Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her when they were in high school in the early 1980s.”

Ho implored on Twitter:

PLEASE CONSIDER SIGNING AND RE-TWEETING IF YOU ARE UNC AFFILIATED (alums/students/faculty/staff): Signatures supporting the nomination of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford for a Distinguished Alumna Award at UNC Chapel Hill.”

Do these females even understand the meaning of heroism? Clearly not.

A self-styled victim who makes claims against others with little proof is no hero.
