The Wellesley News: "Free Speech Is Not Violated at Wellesley!"

From the Wellesley News:

FREE SPEECH IS NOT VIOLATED AT WELLESLEY

by STAFF EDITORIAL

If you say so …

Looks nice!

Many members of our community, including students, alumnae and faculty, have criticized the Wellesley community for becoming an environment where free speech is not allowed or is a violated right. Many outside sources have painted us as a bunch of hot house flowers who cannot exist in the real world. However, we fundamentally disagree with that characterization, and we disagree with the idea that free speech is infringed upon at Wellesley. Rather, our Wellesley community will not stand for hate speech, and will call it out when possible.

Okay …

Wellesley students are generally correct in their attempts to differentiate what is viable discourse from what is just hate speech. Wellesley is certainly not a place for racism, sexism, homophobia, Islamophobia, transphobia or any other type of discriminatory speech. Shutting down rhetoric that undermines the existence and rights of others is not a violation of free speech; it is hate speech.

Indeed.

The founding fathers put free speech in the Constitution as a way to protect the disenfranchised and to protect individual citizens from the power of the government. The spirit of free speech is to protect the suppressed, not to protect a free-for-all where anything is acceptable, no matter how hateful and damaging.

Somebody needs to compose a Broadway musical about how James Madison was black, Hispanic, Jewish, immigrant, Muslim, and gay … STAT!

… We at The Wellesley News, are not interested in any type of tone policing.

Madison was short. Is that good enough?

The emotional labor required to educate people is immense and is additional weight that is put on those who are already forced to defend their human rights.

Commenter Jack D notes:

THREE SJW memes in 1 sentence – a record!

1. “Emotional labor” – Being a SJW and being around all you racists is hard work that I should get paid for (as others have mentioned in their comments),

2. “Required to educate people” – this is the “I don’t have to educate you (you stupid redneck)” meme – you should be woke already and if you are not woke, I shouldn’t have to keep explaining it. I explained this whole SJW thing to you once and you should just accept it and not question it any further. Are you stupid or something? This is how the Gospel was spread throughout the world – NOT.

3. “Forced to defend their human rights” – When I am being aggressive toward you, I am just defending myself – -I’m oppressed and my aggression is defensive so it’s OK.

There is no denying that problematic opinions need to be addressed in order to stop Wellesley from becoming a place where hate speech and casual discrimination is okay. …

This being said, if people are given the resources to learn and either continue to speak hate speech or refuse to adapt their beliefs, then hostility may be warranted.

“Projection” was Freud’s best insight.

    Bingo! I thought exactly the same thing when I read YOUR comment.

    Now, on the subject at hand, the SJW's at Wellesley, exactly like their Alt-Right "Fake News" counterparts, believe their ideological position is absolute truth. Based on that position alone, there is no need further debate. Which, of course, both of their stances are fundamentally anti-intellectual.
  4. Something tells me that if you were to read the Wellesley student paper from roughly 1969 you would find much more cogent expression and perhaps even the occasional flash of intelligence.

    Boomer leftist Paul Berman has a lot to say about this regarding the French left intelligentsia whom in this house we call Soixante-Retards, and the left Establishment in general.

    Three of his books form a sort of trilogy on the development of the generation you note:

    A Tale of Two Utopias: The Political Journey of the Generation of 1968

    Power and the Idealists: or, the Passion of Joschka Fischer and its Aftermath

    Terror and Liberalism

    He notes in general the left's intellectual weaknesses (including poor reading and reasoning skills), and demonstrates especially in the third title its worship of totalitarian violence.

    There's also his book on the Muslim Brotherhood (expansion of his New Republic piece on Tariq Ramadan):

    Flight of the Intellectuals: The Controversy over Islamism and the Press

    We might be at a good moment to review all that.

The Great Girl was organizationally minded, made liberal use of crepe paper in her many projects, and at pains to be moving in the direction she perceived everyone else was. I suspect seven sisters colleges are great collecting pools of the terminally other-directed, when they’re not overrun by lesbians.

    This is the whole "America's always been great" triangulation brain-stroke-of-genius that happened at Clinton HQ around the middle of last summer. The idea was to create an invincible FDR-style ruling coalition by padding the Democratic fringe core of blacks, single moms, etc. with squishy, Republican-leaning suburbanites turned off by the Donkey Party's traditionally anti-patriotic attitudes.

    This would of course require a significant amount of retconning of our culture and history, but that's what academia, Broadway, for-profit television, non-profit television, foundations, Hollywood, Internet megalopolies, etc. are for. I'm sure Doris Kearns Goodwin is up for writing an intersectional and properly woke biography of Guvernor Morris that is still nonthreatening enough to put on the typical nice white lady's coffee table- heck, I'd bet at least 60% of it would be non-plagarized.

    So anyway that was the plan; guess the snowflakes at Wellesley are a bit late in getting the notice that that talking point memo from "Brooklyn" is no longer operative.

    I laughed when I read that sentence. My first thought was Freudian slip, but upon reflection I think that's too generous. More likely the writer thought she would get all fancy and slip in a semicolon to prove her intellectualosity. Too bad the ability to mentally retain the relationship between pronoun and antecedent--and write a sentence accordingly--is just a tad beyond that writer's pay-grade.

They have the flair that NE Asians lack and the ruthless, market-dominant minority mentality that whites lack. I’ll be the look-out for South Asians to become more and more common in the SJW world as this generation moves from the classroom to the boardroom.

  25. Wellesley has a lovely campus, and their information sessions are exceptional in that they are held in a more intimate setting than at the typical college, with a group of 12 or so prospective students seated around a conference table, their parents relegated symbolically to the background. The discussion is led by a current student or recent grad who is an exemplar or the proud, intelligent, confident woman that Wellesley seeks to develop. The effect is mesmerizing if you have been to the more conventional, tedious, lecture-style info sessions that most colleges hold in auditoriums or large rooms.
    Walking around the campus, it is hard not to get the feeling that you are in one of the most privileged places on Earth, and who wouldn’t want their daughter to go there if they can afford it.
    Bonus: While the school is considered highly selective and elite, it’s a lot easier to get into than similarly ranked coed liberal arts colleges.

  26. OT, but could be huge:

    A Female Muslim (possibly Pakistani?) doctor in Detroit has been arrested and charged with performing female genital mutilation in her practice.

    Two of the victims identified so far were transported by their mothers from Minnesota for the procedure, and were instructed on how to lie about it to teachers and other adults. There could be a lot of serious felony charges coming here against parents and others for transporting across state lines for sexual abuse. There could have been dozens of total victims.

    If this blows up it could force American feminists to come down one way or another, and we know which way they’ll come down. FGM will be justified as a cultural practice, with lots of obfuscating analogies to male circumcision, and we will probably see the first efforts to legalize it in the US. Right now I would give even odds for this doctor actually seeing any prison time, even though her alleged crimes theoretically carry life without parole.

    Spend a few minutes listening to your husband complain about his boss? Coax your toddler into trying the broccoli? This is now emotional labor and should be considered real work and compensated accordingly. Women apparently do huge amounts of onerous emotional labor.

    The really odd thing is that the same people object to the neoliberal project of extending market logic to all spheres of life.

    In conversations with elite young women, I'm often struck by their preference for holistic, varied, nurturing service that stands apart from the system of market remuneration, like "working for a global health NGO". Well, we used to have something like that, I think to myself, and it was called "being a housewife".

    In fact, if you consider how many high-status women's jobs amount to being a housewife for other people's kids, the picture snaps into focus with horrible clarity.
  29. This sounds like the feminist, journalistic version of the old adage: “Beatings will continue until morale improves.” Hectoring will continue until you come to the right way of thinking.

    I like how they admit that they are accused of being hot house flowers, and then proceed to confirm that accusation.

    Whenever I see this type of thing from an all women’s college, I always think of the grandmothers of these students. What is their opinion of this tripe? Are they aghast? Are they supportive? I think that young women today are in such bad shape in large part because mothers, in particular, have abandoned almost any notion of disciplining their daughters. Admittedly, fathers aren’t much better.

    White women who love America reject the inane nonsense coming from the upper middle class boob females of Wellesley. Hillary Clinton learned how to cloak her own greed for money and power at Wellesely. Wellesley is just a place that greedy broads learn to use words to attack other women. Feminism and all the other crap is an attack on regular patriotic White women.

    Patriotic White women have had more than enough of the filthy guff coming from these upper middle class broads at Wellesley. Patriotic White women know damn well that Wellesley rats such as Hillary Clinton are money-grubbing scum who preach about the glories of mass immigration and multiculturalism while they live in mostly White towns like Chappaqua, New York.

    "upper middle class female assholery...."

    Charles Pewitt, you are killing me. LOL x 10. I am going to borrow that awesome phrase in future conversation.

    As for the rest of your comments, could not have said it any better myself. That is 350 yds right in the middle of the fairway (golf analogy for Steve-o).

  36. Many members of our community, including students, alumnae and faculty, have criticized the Wellesley community for becoming an environment where free speech is not allowed or is a violated right. Many outside sources have painted us as a bunch of hot house flowers who cannot exist in the real world. However, we fundamentally disagree with that characterization, and we disagree with the idea that free speech is infringed upon at Wellesley. Rather, our Wellesley community will not stand for hate speech, and will call it out when possible.

    So, are leftist students too stupid to see the obvious moral hazard baked into their cake, their professors too cowardly to point it out, etc?

    It’s not exactly rocket science. The fig leaf of opposing hate speech creates a huge incentive to get speech you oppose categorized as hate speech. There is no real reward: they’re throwing out something good, free speech, and all they’re getting in return is (ostensibly) some (supposed) spared feelings in people who need to work on their coping skills (to put it charitably) instead of being enabled in their immaturity. So they’re giving away something good (freedom of speech), to get something bad (morally stunted people).

    The founding fathers put free speech in the Constitution as a way to protect the disenfranchised and to protect individual citizens from the power of the government.

    They put freedom of speech in there because they liked freedom of speech. In and of itself. I’m sure some of them did so because they liked the freedom to be able to offend powerful people. Like, say, King George for instance. The Founders’ reasons for enshrining free speech in the Constitution aren’t particularly relevant, except as laid out in the text.

    The spirit of free speech is to protect the suppressed, not to protect a free-for-all where anything is acceptable, no matter how hateful and damaging.

    The exception test for free speech pretty much amounts to finding an actual crime. E.g., contracting out a murder is illegal, so verbally conveying the order isn’t protected speech. Huwting weftist widdle feewings isn’t a crime, so speech that hurts weftist widdle feewings isn’t a crime, either.

    This being said, if people are given the resources to learn and either continue to speak hate speech or refuse to adapt their beliefs, then hostility may be warranted.

    George Soros gives an awful lot of money to leftist college groups. I think I would have heard if he opposes the kind of crap that college leftists (and company) are getting up to these days. Soros can certainly withhold funding from offending groups. The only logical conclusion is that Soros supports the oppressive measures being cooked up by the left; that Soros supports the suppression of free speech, the use of violence and criminality to achieve leftist ends, etc. Of course, Soros isn’t the only one…

    [The founding fathers put free speech in the Constitution as a way to protect the disenfranchised]

    Actually, they did it to protect the enfranchised.

    Like leftists give a crap about disenfranchisement, per se. Nope, their concern is entirely through the lens of “who-whom?”

    That’s the way a lot of leftist think, but they’re just mental children. Deplorables would beat up the left and take all their lunch money, once the fighting shifted from kulturkampf to kampfkampf.

    Spend a few minutes listening to your husband complain about his boss? Coax your toddler into trying the broccoli? This is now emotional labor and should be considered real work and compensated accordingly. Women apparently do huge amounts of onerous emotional labor. Presumably feminists discovered there wasn’t enough inequity and needed to invent some.

    I hadn’t realized it had spread to the larger sjw movement.

    It’s kind of ingrained in the female psyche that all the jive they go through (from feathering their nests, to riding herd socially), because they want to go through it, is stuff that Must Be Done. But it isn’t. It’s just crap they want done.

    Seriously, though, if this is what passes for a "Staff Editorial" at Wellesley, better to make every op-ed piece signed, so that the guilty won't escape whipping. That is some awful writing: just the repeated uses of the passive voice made my head hurt. (The passive voice construction is generally a tip-off that the writer either (i) has no idea what he or she is talking about, (ii) is trying to avoid making a simple declarative statement that some person or thing is doing something to some other person or thing, or (iii) both. As a result, you get veritable linguistic abortions like "The emotional labor required to educate people is immense and is additional weight that is put on those who are already forced to defend their human rights." That's three uses of the passive voice in a single sentence. And, of course, there's the soon-to-be-classic "hostility may be warranted."

    Wellesley has a lovely campus, and their information sessions are exceptional in that they are held in a more intimate setting than at the typical college, with a group of 12 or so prospective students seated around a conference table, their parents relegated symbolically to the background. The discussion is led by a current student or recent grad who is an exemplar or the proud, intelligent, confident woman that Wellesley seeks to develop. The effect is mesmerizing if you have been to the more conventional, tedious, lecture-style info sessions that most colleges hold in auditoriums or large rooms.
    Walking around the campus, it is hard not to get the feeling that you are in one of the most privileged places on Earth, and who wouldn't want their daughter to go there if they can afford it.
    Bonus: While the school is considered highly selective and elite, it's a lot easier to get into than similarly ranked coed liberal arts colleges.

    Wellesley feeder schools scattered around New England and Manhattan must have fascinating curricula and committed faculty! That is likely replicated for the other Six Sisters and various fellow traveler institutions.

    The really odd thing is that the same people object to the neoliberal project of extending market logic to all spheres of life.

    In conversations with elite young women, I’m often struck by their preference for holistic, varied, nurturing service that stands apart from the system of market remuneration, like “working for a global health NGO”. Well, we used to have something like that, I think to myself, and it was called “being a housewife”.

    I laughed when I read that sentence. My first thought was Freudian slip, but upon reflection I think that’s too generous. More likely the writer thought she would get all fancy and slip in a semicolon to prove her intellectualosity. Too bad the ability to mentally retain the relationship between pronoun and antecedent–and write a sentence accordingly–is just a tad beyond that writer’s pay-grade.

    “Disenfranchised” usually referred to those who couldn’t vote back in the early days of the Constitution, not those who couldn’t speak, and the founding fathers made sure a whole lot of people couldn’t vote in the early days of the Constitution. Trying to turn free speech into a sort of affirmative action effort by 18th century America is just another in the long list of historical lies we’ve come to expect from the left.

    Free speech for the founding fathers was all about overturning the concept of seditious libel held by the British Crown. And no free speech issue of the modern era resembles seditious libel more than restrictions against so called, “hate speech,” in large part because “hate” is a very subjective term.

    It is surprising they would cite the authority of the Founding Fathers, the phrase alone implies an exclusion of women. Plus they were all every type of phobic the editorial condemns as eliminating your right to speak in the previous paragraph.

    It is surprising they would cite the authority of the Founding Fathers, the phrase alone implies an exclusion of women.

    This is the whole “America’s always been great” triangulation brain-stroke-of-genius that happened at Clinton HQ around the middle of last summer. The idea was to create an invincible FDR-style ruling coalition by padding the Democratic fringe core of blacks, single moms, etc. with squishy, Republican-leaning suburbanites turned off by the Donkey Party’s traditionally anti-patriotic attitudes.

    This would of course require a significant amount of retconning of our culture and history, but that’s what academia, Broadway, for-profit television, non-profit television, foundations, Hollywood, Internet megalopolies, etc. are for. I’m sure Doris Kearns Goodwin is up for writing an intersectional and properly woke biography of Guvernor Morris that is still nonthreatening enough to put on the typical nice white lady’s coffee table- heck, I’d bet at least 60% of it would be non-plagarized.

    So anyway that was the plan; guess the snowflakes at Wellesley are a bit late in getting the notice that that talking point memo from “Brooklyn” is no longer operative.

    OT, but could be huge:

    A Female Muslim (possibly Pakistani?) doctor in Detroit has been arrested and charged with performing female genital mutilation in her practice.

    Two of the victims identified so far were transported by their mothers from Minnesota for the procedure, and were instructed on how to lie about it to teachers and other adults. There could be a lot of serious felony charges coming here against parents and others for transporting across state lines for sexual abuse. There could have been dozens of total victims.

    If this blows up it could force American feminists to come down one way or another, and we know which way they'll come down. FGM will be justified as a cultural practice, with lots of obfuscating analogies to male circumcision, and we will probably see the first efforts to legalize it in the US. Right now I would give even odds for this doctor actually seeing any prison time, even though her alleged crimes theoretically carry life without parole.

    This whole FGM Terror is silly from the get-go.

    It IS a cultural practice and I have no problem with it.

    So long as it is done among those similarly cultured.

    There is no reason for search alien cultures to be here in the first place but as a cultural practice, leave em be.

    Once these folks have been inexplicably allowed to settle and collect welfare here we have no more business stopping their practice than we have of stopping the practice of Male Genital Mutilation.

    Many members of our community, including students, alumnae and faculty, have criticized the Wellesley community for becoming an environment where free speech is not allowed or is a violated right. Many outside sources have painted us as a bunch of hot house flowers who cannot exist in the real world. However, we fundamentally disagree with that characterization, and we disagree with the idea that free speech is infringed upon at Wellesley. Rather, our Wellesley community will not stand for hate speech, and will call it out when possible.
     
    So, are leftist students too stupid to see the obvious moral hazard baked into their cake, their professors too cowardly to point it out, etc?

    It's not exactly rocket science. The fig leaf of opposing hate speech creates a huge incentive to get speech you oppose categorized as hate speech. There is no real reward: they're throwing out something good, free speech, and all they're getting in return is (ostensibly) some (supposed) spared feelings in people who need to work on their coping skills (to put it charitably) instead of being enabled in their immaturity. So they're giving away something good (freedom of speech), to get something bad (morally stunted people).

    The founding fathers put free speech in the Constitution as a way to protect the disenfranchised and to protect individual citizens from the power of the government.
     
    They put freedom of speech in there because they liked freedom of speech. In and of itself. I'm sure some of them did so because they liked the freedom to be able to offend powerful people. Like, say, King George for instance. The Founders' reasons for enshrining free speech in the Constitution aren't particularly relevant, except as laid out in the text.

    The spirit of free speech is to protect the suppressed, not to protect a free-for-all where anything is acceptable, no matter how hateful and damaging.
     
    The exception test for free speech pretty much amounts to finding an actual crime. E.g., contracting out a murder is illegal, so verbally conveying the order isn't protected speech. Huwting weftist widdle feewings isn't a crime, so speech that hurts weftist widdle feewings isn't a crime, either.

    This being said, if people are given the resources to learn and either continue to speak hate speech or refuse to adapt their beliefs, then hostility may be warranted.
     
    George Soros gives an awful lot of money to leftist college groups. I think I would have heard if he opposes the kind of crap that college leftists (and company) are getting up to these days. Soros can certainly withhold funding from offending groups. The only logical conclusion is that Soros supports the oppressive measures being cooked up by the left; that Soros supports the suppression of free speech, the use of violence and criminality to achieve leftist ends, etc. Of course, Soros isn't the only one...

    [The founding fathers put free speech in the Constitution as a way to protect the disenfranchised]

    Actually, they did it to protect the enfranchised.
     
    Like leftists give a crap about disenfranchisement, per se. Nope, their concern is entirely through the lens of "who-whom?"

    Huwting weftist widdle feewings isn’t a crime

    Yet. Two birds with one stone and all that.

    The really odd thing is that the same people object to the neoliberal project of extending market logic to all spheres of life.

    In conversations with elite young women, I'm often struck by their preference for holistic, varied, nurturing service that stands apart from the system of market remuneration, like "working for a global health NGO". Well, we used to have something like that, I think to myself, and it was called "being a housewife".

    In fact, if you consider how many high-status women's jobs amount to being a housewife for other people's kids, the picture snaps into focus with horrible clarity.

    There’s a huge segment of the labor market devoted to replacing the non-compensated labor housewives used to do: restaurants, dry cleaners, day cares, nursery schools, a certain amount of K-12 schooling, after school programming, elder care, cleaning ladies, convenience foods, etc. And a lot of those jobs are “pink collar” ones done mostly by women. Kind of depressing. The minute you pay someone to do this stuff, it boosts The Economy, which is obviously the most important thing ever.

    Bingo! I thought exactly the same thing when I read YOUR comment.

    Now, on the subject at hand, the SJW’s at Wellesley, exactly like their Alt-Right “Fake News” counterparts, believe their ideological position is absolute truth. Based on that position alone, there is no need further debate. Which, of course, both of their stances are fundamentally anti-intellectual.

    You quoted no errors, but you produced some (e.g., either you’re missing an object possessed by SJWs, or you erroneously inserted an apostrophe. I think they teach this one in…wait for it…grammar school. E.g., you forgot the preposition “for” between “need” and “further.” And I’m not sure how to describe the error in your final sentence (it might just be clumsy diction), though I think it would be corrected by substituting “And” for “Which.”

    Your argument is crap too, of course. Leftists run Big Media, for example, while Rightists are stuck with a tiny alternative media, bringing us back to your eternal obsession with not-even-specious balance that wouldn’t fool a child.

    Anyway, if South Asians are cynical abou this and plays the game, I think the more earnest East Asians swallow SJW-ism hook, line, and sinker. Look how Maoists in China went totally batty with Leninism-Maoism

    Yup. And gloriously self-destructed. I sincerely hope that the new wave of East Asian SJWs go the same way.

    Alas, this does not give me much hope that much of East Asia will hold out against the progressive wave, but hope springs eternal and all.

    It's almost as if the Wellesley class of 1969 has been embraced by the Establishment.

    Boomer leftist Paul Berman has a lot to say about this regarding the French left intelligentsia whom in this house we call Soixante-Retards, and the left Establishment in general.

    Three of his books form a sort of trilogy on the development of the generation you note:

    A Tale of Two Utopias: The Political Journey of the Generation of 1968

    Power and the Idealists: or, the Passion of Joschka Fischer and its Aftermath

    Terror and Liberalism

    He notes in general the left’s intellectual weaknesses (including poor reading and reasoning skills), and demonstrates especially in the third title its worship of totalitarian violence.

    There’s also his book on the Muslim Brotherhood (expansion of his New Republic piece on Tariq Ramadan):

    Flight of the Intellectuals: The Controversy over Islamism and the Press

    We might be at a good moment to review all that.

Also, they have tons of social/class problems in India, so they want distract their own kind from their own problems by sticking it to whitey. But Latin whites do the same thing in Latin America. Make the brown hoi polloi overlook the fact of Latin history of oppression by making 'gringo' or 'yanqui' out to be the bad guy.

    Blacks are too stupid to realize that this is all BS. NE Asian Americans are too conformist to think about it at all. Whites are too earnest to allow themselves to think about it. Only Abu types full understand the opportunity in front of them in full color.

    You don't get stultifying conformity to this degree in European Universities because students either stay at home with their parents or rent independently . They don't, by and large, " stay on campus."
    Nobody takes much notice of student newspapers in Europe. My own Alma Mater has the oldest student newspaper ( in the world ) and every Thursday I got a free copy from a student hack I knew. It was useful when you ran out of toilet paper.
    The conformity produced reminds me of certain English Public Schools. It stems from the same principles: You live in College/School Accommodation. You often share a room with one or more student. You hang about campus/are confined to school most of the time.
    Of course, it has been going on for a long time. You read pieces about American establishment figures and it is casually mentioned that they were so and so's roommate at Harvard. You think: he went to Harvard. Why's he sharing a room like some pauper ?
    Fortunately, once the economic collapse sets in later this decade, many, if not most, of these private colleges will close as a result. Some relief is on the way.

    You just described one of the foundations of cult indoctrination.

    See cults do the same thing, they keep their followers together 7×24, they work, eat and study together. The guru and his enforcers make sure they don’t stray or start having bad thoughts.

    By keeping them altogether it creates a vast echo chamber effect where everything but gurus edicts are drowned out. After awhile a homogenization of thought occurs and the followers all become interchangeable minions.

    What’s gobsmacking about it? That’s what he’s paid to do.

    Just ignore him like the rest of us and quit feeding the troll.

    See what you made me do? If you hadn't been a racist deplorable, I wouldn't have to put my boot to your face.

    I can’t help but hear it in Nelson Muntz’s or Jimbo Jones’s voice.

    “Stop facebooting yourself!”

    BTW, “Faceboot” is what the love of my life calls that one social media platform.

    Frau, don't bother with Corvy; he's a paid troll, through and through, as he proves on almost everything he posts. Better to needle the little turd a bit and watch him flail out in response; he's a typical SJW type in sheep's clothing.

    Yep, his response is pretty lame. I’ll mark him as troll.

    *I’m not using the phrase alt-right because some people think it means you’re a white supremacist
     
    In Steve Sailer's nomenclature, there's no room for white suprematism, - because HBD is nothing good or bad - it's just there. - Would that be about right (=correct)?

    I'd go as far as to state that it is not necessary at all, to understand and / or estimate part 1 of the Sailerian Imperative (hey: no bad term, this one, is it?!) "don't invite the world", to be either on th right - or on the left.

    See - Thilo Sarrazin and Gunnar Heinsohn - the two most prominent German immigration-restrictionists (=critics) are both old leftists.

    The old left/right dichotomy doesn’t make sense with a lot of modern politics.

    Classic liberals used to be called “left” but now they’ve become “fascists” because they support freedom of speech, including “hate” speech.

    Those favouring mass immigrants can leftists (invite the world because we’re such great humanitarians) or right (invite the world because we can hire them cheaply. Nothing matters more our short term profits).

    Free speech is basically a white supremacist ideology used to protect the privileged white male. It has got to go.

    Once again, in response to black folks’ fears, people choose to be ignorant. They choose to be blind.

    Black folks’ fears are mostly other black folks.

    You can stop posting links to Pitts’ columns, Ducky; if you’ve read one Pitts screed, you’ve read them all.

    The really odd thing is that the same people object to the neoliberal project of extending market logic to all spheres of life.

    In conversations with elite young women, I'm often struck by their preference for holistic, varied, nurturing service that stands apart from the system of market remuneration, like "working for a global health NGO". Well, we used to have something like that, I think to myself, and it was called "being a housewife".

    In fact, if you consider how many high-status women's jobs amount to being a housewife for other people's kids, the picture snaps into focus with horrible clarity.

    Many of these Wellesley girls will owe a huge debt of gratitude to the woman who created the most lucrative Pink Ghetto in business today: Freada Kapor Klein, the Original Human Resource Lady.

    Is it a bug or a feature that this feminist engaged in the old-school tradition of banging the boss?

  136. From Lewis Carroll’s Through the Looking Glass:

    “When I use a word,’ Humpty Dumpty said in rather a scornful tone, ‘it means just what I choose it to mean — neither more nor less.”
    “The question is,” said Alice, “whether you can make words mean so many different things.”
    “The question is,” said Humpty Dumpty, “which is to be master— that’s all.”

    This whole FGM Terror is silly from the get-go.

    It IS a cultural practice and I have no problem with it.

    So long as it is done among those similarly cultured.

    There is no reason for search alien cultures to be here in the first place but as a cultural practice, leave em be.

    Once these folks have been inexplicably allowed to settle and collect welfare here we have no more business stopping their practice than we have of stopping the practice of Male Genital Mutilation.

    It IS a cultural practice and I have no problem with it.

    From Catholic Online, 3rd March 2008:
    “But when Senator Edward Kennedy asked, ‘Would waterboarding be torture if it was done to you?’ Attorney General Michael Mukasey readily replied, ‘I would feel that it was.’ “
