From the New York Post:

Florida college to fire professor accused of ‘racist’ tweets
By Joshua Rhett Miller January 14, 2021 | 1:08pm

A Florida college is seeking to fire a professor whose controversial tweets — including one claiming “black privilege is real” – led to widespread calls for his termination as protests raged in the aftermath of George Floyd’s death.

What got Negy in trouble back in June was retweeting one of my more eloquent tweets. From Quillette:

He also tweeted:

“If Afr. Americans as a group, had the same behavioral profile as Asian Americans (on average, performing the best academically, having the highest income, committing the lowest crime, etc.), would we still be proclaiming ‘systematic racism’ exists?”

Because he has tenure, he can’t legally be fired for retweeting the Forbidden One. So they are trying to stick him with other charges.

An investigation by the University of Central Florida determined that associate psychology professor Charles Negy created a “hostile” classroom environment and tried to deter students from filing complaints, the Orlando Sentinel reported.

… Calls for Negy’s ouster came after two controversial tweets a day earlier, including one claiming “black privilege is real” and another comparing African Americans and Asian Americans.

“Sincere question: If Afr. Americans as a group, had the same behavioral profile as Asian Americans (on average, performing the best academically, having the highest income, committing the lowest crime, etc.), would we still be proclaiming ‘systemic racism’ exists?”

But the outcome of UCF’s investigation was “predetermined,” an attorney for Negy told The Post.

“This pretextual, defamatory investigative report is the latest chapter in UCF’s effort to ruin Dr. Negy — a man with a distinguished 22-year teaching career — because he has become politically inconvenient,” attorney Samantha Harris said in a statement. “UCF, along with those who solicited and investigated false complaints against him, have violated his rights and defamed him, and will be held accountable in court.”

    I think the answer would be this: that the Professor is looking at this the wrong way round: black people have poor behaviour because they suffer from systemic racism. The dysfunctional family backgrounds, low attainment at school and poor work history leads to poverty, frustration and anger, crime, and the cycle continues. The cycle began with Slavery and it's aftermath. This is pretty much the theme of all the NYT articles that Steve writes about here.

    If he's going to get persecuted and sacked for asking a question I wish he'd asked them a real poser. But all credit to him for his bravery. If there'd been more like him over the years maybe things would be better now.

    Now this has me thinking about the question I would pose if I'd been him. Maybe I would ask people if they think the trends of blaming whites for black behaviour and white demographic decline are both going to continue as they have for the last fifty years, and if so at what point along the timeline of demographic decline would white people have a right to feel concerned about it.

    Of course, this is a very different kind of question because it is not just claiming to be asking a scientific or sociological question, but tacitly broaches the subject of white advocacy and identity. But I see this as a strength rather than a weakness as this is what truly lies behind questions like the Professor's anyway, and this is why they are furiously denounced by liberals who know this.

    Deep down, I think there are few people who wish to imagine a future in which people who look like them are persecuted out of existence.

    If anyone has any other thoughts on a question the Professor could have asked I'd be interested to hear it.

    Mr. Sailer's heavy handedness aside, academic freedom in college must be protected, and more liberals than he (maybe even you) cares to admit agree.

    There was a case at Marquette a couple of years ago that drew national attention. Perhaps the professor at Central Florida can draw inspiration and fight back.

    https://www.theatlantic.com/education/archive/2015/02/stripping-a-professor-of-tenure-over-a-blog-post/385280


    Academics all over the United States ought to denounce the firing of the 69-year-old, a Harvard Ph.D. who taught courses on American politics and public policy. If tenure can be taken away based upon one controversial blog post, what protection does it offer? How many tenured professors will censor themselves from participating in public conversation to avoid a similar fate? Marquette has violated core academic values, regardless of what one thinks of McAdams' commentary or the shabby treatment of the graduate instructor he was criticizing (who deserves sympathy for the horrifying torrent of misogyny others directed at her).
     
    Even (gasp) liberal colleagues defended him, which is not uncommon.

    Even before the decision to strip McAdams of tenure was handed down, and he had merely been suspended, some of his colleagues were expressing concern. "Over the years Professor McAdams and I have disagreed on many issues—and he has excoriated me on his blog—but all my personal interactions with him have been uniformly civil and urbane. Again, as Cardinal Newman said, in a university many minds are free to compete. That’s the glory of it," Professor Daniel C. McGuire wrote to the university's president.** "The incident has a chilling effect on all members and staff since it implies that due-process protections may be brittle and uncertain at this university and specifically under your presidency. It is certainly not an aid in recruiting quality faculty."
     
    **Of course, it hasn't helped matters within the past 4 years regarding this "Fake News" mantra. Read carefully the advice from Ron Unz…


    I apply the same historical methods I did in my academic journal articles back in the 1980's. You analyze the likely reliability of the raw information presented, look for confirming or refuting evidence, and then draw your own plausible conclusions…On a more serious note, many of my articles very heavily cite various MSM sources, so why would I do that if I believed they were always lying?”
     

    The fact of the matter is that "liberals" on this issue of free speech on college campuses are. dare I say, espousing "conservative" points of view. For example, Chris Rock said in 2016 on the topic of comedy and colleges:


    “I stopped playing colleges...not for their political views--but in their social views and their willingness not to offend anybody. Kids raised on a culture of ‘We’re not going to keep score in the game because we don’t want anybody to lose’. Or just ignoring race to a fault. You can’t say ‘the black kid over there.’ No, it’s ‘the guy with the red shoes.’ You can’t even be offensive on your way to being inoffensive.”
     
    He is not alone. Comedienne Judy Gold lamented “You can do jokes about anything if the jokes are funny...Why is that everyone has to adjust to everyone else?”

    On the topic of understanding alternative points of view in the face of being "canceled"...

    https://www.newsweek.com/2016/06/03/college-campus-free-speech-thought-police-463536.html


    In 2016, Williams College (MA) sophomore Zachary Wood headed up an on-campus lecture series called “Uncomfortable Learning”. Wood, an African-American who grew up in one of the poorer neighborhoods in Washington, D.C., is a self described liberal, devoted to learning and books. He liked inviting controversial speakers, usually from the political right, to challenge young progressives at a liberal arts institution. First, he invited Suzanne Venker, an anti-feminist author and lecturer. After a campus and social media outcry, fellow “Uncomfortable Learning” leaders disinvited her and then resigned from the organization. Wood then formed a club of his own and invited John Derbyshire, a British-American writer who believes that “black dysfunction is a result of genetics”. An hour after Wood advertised several speeches of Derbyshire, Wood was swarmed. He was accused of providing a space on campus for hate speech. When Wood replied to one critic “So you would never bring a speaker who challenges your preconceived ideas”, someone retorted “I’d rather sell crack first”. From Wood’s perspective, “What hate speech is what people don’t like to hear. With Trump running [for president], he says controversial things on national television. It is imperative that we confront offensive views and afford college students the opportunity to learn how to engage constructively with people they vehemently disagree with. Shielding students from microaggressions does not improve their ability to argue effectively, it coddles them. At a time like this, uncomfortable learning is vital”.
     
    ...

    In Fall 2014, a student group called Everyone Allied Against Homophobia at Columbia University slipped a flier under the door of every dorm room on campus. The headline of the flier stated, “I want this space to be a safer space”. The text below instructed the students to tape the fliers to their windows. A junior named Adam Shipiro printed his own flier and taped it to his window, calling it a dangerous space. He wrote a letter that was published in the Columbia Daily Spectator, stating that “If the point of a safe space is therapy for people who feel victimized by traumatization, that sounds like a great mission. But I don!t see how you can have a therapeutic space that!s also an intellectual space.” The group later accused Shapiro of being homophobic.
     
    In other words, there is in-fighting among liberals (AND CONSERVATIVES**) as far as what certain things mean and what should be done to address those things.

    **What is "anti-white"? What is "civic nationalism" and "magic dirt"? What is "race realism"?

  10. I could be wrong, but a smarter man than me once said that people of the “real” right-wing shouldn’t be overly ambitious to play in the left’s playground. This is because when we inevitably get burned, we appear defenseless and weak. The idea being that the militant left is a snarling dog on a short leash. It may not be able to get off the chain, but you still shouldn’t get too close. The only way at this time to muzzle the loud barking dog is to turn off mainstream sources of information.

    Back in the days when the IRA was at the height of its armed struggle, I used to assume that it and the British government were locked in conflict.

    Now I know better. In the last 20 years or so, it's become obvious that the British government doesn't want to stop terrorism, otherwise it would end all Muslim immigration.

    The IRA has likewise been exposed. Its policies on immigration make nonsense of its claim to be Irish nationalists.

    Probably the same could be said of much of recent history. A lot of political and military activity is nothing more than a charade. Parties pretending to be deadly enemies are really on the same side, and those who claim to be protecting civilisation are doing their best to undermine it.

    They didn’t really bring them. They were mostly Nigerians that had discovered a loophole in Ireland’s asylum process. Also that it had automatic birthright citizenship. To Ireland’s credit when this was discovered they closed the loophole and got rid of automatic birthright citizenship. I don’t think Ireland is like Sweden or Norway, countries that actively go out of their way to bring African refugees to their countries.

    , @36 ulster
    @BenKenobi

    The IRA planned their exit before they engaged British Army patrols; the Brits knew this, so they covered each other down to the "brick" (team of four) level. Consequently there were relatively few "contacts" in relation to the number of patrols. Also, the IRA realized that they were riddled with "touts" and "supergrasses"--informers. Maybe THEY came to the table first. There are those in England AND NI who believe that their side lost, and some who believe that all three sides in this conflict lost, if you include the Loyalists.

    Once they discover what your politics are, or if you deviate from the racial orthodoxy on affirmative action, they start fabricating reasons to fire you. They ferreted me out when I objected to hiring a Negro who held only a B.A. to teach college-level history courses when the market was glutted with Ph.Ds. I stupidly thought they wanted me to give an honest evaluation of the candidate. Black privilege is indeed real.

    I hope Prof. Negy enjoys digging ditches, cutting grass, mopping public restrooms and cleaning up dog shit for minimum wage, because those are some of the jobs I’ve had in the intervening 18 years.

    I'm a longtime close observer of my local Podunk Tech, and, whether faculty or staff, I've never seen a more fear-ridden work force in my life. They fear saying the wrong thing; they fear doing the wrong thing; they fear giving the wrong appearance to their supervisors or department chairs that might set them up for retaliation. And, the "wrong thing" can be anything the supervisor or department chair asserts is the wrong thing.

    (Consequences? You bet. The academic gamesmen move up. Others, such as the embittered prof who claimed he'd published more than his departmental colleagues combined without being advanced, not so much.)

    Yep.

    It's a commonplace for many people to believe that educated and experienced workers who are booted from their first-choice job will find work at their second-choice job. Maybe so. My observation is that those educated and experienced workers are often effectively barred from those second-choice jobs. Over-qualification that poses a threat to management control, armies of "good-enough" workers available through global labor markets, affirmative action (mostly favoring White women), etc. That "cascading" extends, in my view, down the food chain to third- and fourth-choice jobs in your primary field of expertise until you're desperate for a fucking job, any job..

  22. Florida has a Republican governor. Republicans control the state senate by a 3-2 margin, and the state house by a nearly 2-1 margin.

    And what will all those Republicans do to punish the University of Central Florida for trying to terminate Charles Negy for his political beliefs? Jack shit, that’s what.

  31. It seems like all explanations for the lack of economic success of blacks are allowed except one. The most acceptable is the liberal belief that blacks are held back by white racism. Less acceptable, but still allowed, is the conservative belief that black culture doesn’t value hard work, punctuality, honesty or other habits needed to achieve success. Also frowned on, but still allowed, is the libertarian belief that the welfare state created economic disincentives for blacks to achieve more.

    The one belief that is beyond the pale is the belief that there might be biological differences between blacks and whites like different IQ levels that holds blacks back. I work a government job and the only political sites banned on my computer are ones like amren.com and unz.com, banned just last week, that discuss these types of differences. If these differences actually exist and it took tens of thousands of years for them to happen that means there is nothing we can realistically do to close the black-white economic gap. With the exception of the talented tenth, blacks will never ever integrate into white middle class society. This is a thought too unpleasant for liberals to contemplate, which is why they react with such furor when anybody brings it up.

  34. Anonymous[396] • Disclaimer says:

    That’s nothing in comparison to the purge that’s coming under the pretext of fighting domestic terrorism.

    There is a big push to cancel nearly everyone who is guilty of protesting at DC on Jan 06. Scores of people, at a minimum, will lose their jobs. The videos from Parler and face recognition are being used to doxx thousands. (Of course, Twitter’s policy of not allowing “hacked materials” does not apply to these videos). Thousands of volunteers are spending a lot of their time on these projects:

    https://www.tommycarstensen.com/terrorism/index.html
    https://facesoftheriot.com

    Here is what’s coming next: Prominent web sites with large conservative user base (unz.com among them) are going to be hacked, the users doxxed and the sites will be deplatformed by about all service providers. All the “but I’ve never done anything illegal” and “I am not a hateful person” pleas will not save anyone. When that happens, maybe Ron Unz will understand then that keeping default logs with IPs (and, it feels like it, browser fingerprinting) was not such a great idea.

    But it can get worse: If the Deep State, in order to facilitate the purges and make them more permanent, will ensure cooperation of the Surveillance State that will allow leaks about identified “domestic terrorists”, it will mean that a lot of bona fide criminal stuff surfaces: copyrights violations, unlawful decryption, domestic abuse, courts records – you name it.

    "That’s nothing in comparison to the purge that’s coming under the pretext of fighting domestic terrorism."

    Let's be more precise. Under the pretext of individuals who had trespassed on federal property or groups who have shown a propensity for planning and/or carrying out acts against the federal government. Are you not for the rule of law?

    "There is a big push to cancel nearly everyone who is guilty of protesting at DC on Jan 06. Scores of people, at a minimum, will lose their jobs. The videos from Parler and face recognition are being used to doxx thousands. (Of course, Twitter’s policy of not allowing “hacked materials” does not apply to these videos)."

    I thought conservatives preached personal responsibility. There are consequences for one's actions. Perhaps the people there who breached the Capitol ought to have pondered the potential risks, including federal charges, loss of employment, and public humiliation. And it's not "doxxing", it's providing information to law enforcement about people who broke the law.

    "Here is what’s coming next: Prominent web sites with large conservative user base (unz.com among them) are going to be hacked, the users doxxed and the sites will be deplatformed by about all service providers. All the “but I’ve never done anything illegal” and “I am not a hateful person” pleas will not save anyone."

    Here's what COULD come next. More importantly, as Alt Right leader Vox Day says, "build your own platforms".

    "When that happens, maybe Ron Unz will understand then that keeping default logs with IPs (and, it feels like it, browser fingerprinting) was not such a great idea."

    Well, you have a decision to make. Continue to comment on this fine opinion webzine...or stop.

    I think the answer would be this: that the Professor is looking at this the wrong way round: black people have poor behaviour because they suffer from systemic racism. The dysfunctional family backgrounds, low attainment at school and poor work history leads to poverty, frustration and anger, crime, and the cycle continues. The cycle began with Slavery and it’s aftermath. This is pretty much the theme of all the NYT articles that Steve writes about here.

    If he’s going to get persecuted and sacked for asking a question I wish he’d asked them a real poser. But all credit to him for his bravery. If there’d been more like him over the years maybe things would be better now.

    Now this has me thinking about the question I would pose if I’d been him. Maybe I would ask people if they think the trends of blaming whites for black behaviour and white demographic decline are both going to continue as they have for the last fifty years, and if so at what point along the timeline of demographic decline would white people have a right to feel concerned about it.

    Of course, this is a very different kind of question because it is not just claiming to be asking a scientific or sociological question, but tacitly broaches the subject of white advocacy and identity. But I see this as a strength rather than a weakness as this is what truly lies behind questions like the Professor’s anyway, and this is why they are furiously denounced by liberals who know this.

    Deep down, I think there are few people who wish to imagine a future in which people who look like them are persecuted out of existence.

    If anyone has any other thoughts on a question the Professor could have asked I’d be interested to hear it.

    Back in the days when the IRA was at the height of its armed struggle, I used to assume that it and the British government were locked in conflict.

    Now I know better. In the last 20 years or so, it’s become obvious that the British government doesn’t want to stop terrorism, otherwise it would end all Muslim immigration.

    The IRA has likewise been exposed. Its policies on immigration make nonsense of its claim to be Irish nationalists.

    Probably the same could be said of much of recent history. A lot of political and military activity is nothing more than a charade. Parties pretending to be deadly enemies are really on the same side, and those who claim to be protecting civilisation are doing their best to undermine it.

They ferreted me out when I objected to hiring a Negro who held only a B.A. to teach college-level history courses when the market was glutted with Ph.Ds. I stupidly thought they wanted me to give an honest evaluation of the candidate. Black privilege is indeed real.

    I hope Prof. Negy enjoys digging ditches, cutting grass, mopping public restrooms and cleaning up dog shit for minimum wage, because those are some of the jobs I've had in the intervening 18 years.

    It seems like all explanations for the lack of economic success of blacks are allowed except one. The most acceptable is the liberal belief that blacks are held back by white racism. Less acceptable, but still allowed, is the conservative belief that black culture doesn't value hard work, punctuality, honesty or other habits needed to achieve success. Also frowned on, but still allowed, is the libertarian belief that the welfare state created economic disincentives for blacks to achieve more.

    The one belief that is beyond the pale is the belief that there might be biological differences between blacks and whites like different IQ levels that holds blacks back. I work a government job and the only political sites banned on my computer are ones like amren.com and unz.com, banned just last week, that discuss these types of differences. If these differences actually exist and it took tens of thousands of years for them to happen that means there is nothing we can realistically do to close the black-white economic gap. With the exception of the talented tenth, blacks will never ever integrate into white middle class society. This is a thought too unpleasant for liberals to contemplate, which is why they react with such furor when anybody brings it up.

    Achmed, I agree with that but many libertarians seem reluctant to use that argument because it rests on the foundation that there is a biological basis for things like IQ and responsible behavior. Many libertarians think the only reason for the difference between Somalia and Switzerland in the area of per capita income is that Switzerland has a more free market economy.

    I'm a libertarian but this is one area of disagreement I have with many libertarians. I think the economic success of a country is based on three things: human resources, a free market economy, and natural resources. Human resources includes the innate IQ of the population. When the U.S. had mostly European immigrants, a free market economy, and a small population and lots of natural resources was when it had the most economic growth. Our current immigration and welfare policy is causing all those factors to reverse. The country has more nonwhites, they mostly vote for socialists, and the U.S. is becoming more crowded at the same time our natural resources are dwindling.

    Mr. Sailer’s heavy handedness aside, academic freedom in college must be protected, and more liberals than he (maybe even you) cares to admit agree.

    There was a case at Marquette a couple of years ago that drew national attention. Perhaps the professor at Central Florida can draw inspiration and fight back.

    https://www.theatlantic.com/education/archive/2015/02/stripping-a-professor-of-tenure-over-a-blog-post/385280

    Academics all over the United States ought to denounce the firing of the 69-year-old, a Harvard Ph.D. who taught courses on American politics and public policy. If tenure can be taken away based upon one controversial blog post, what protection does it offer? How many tenured professors will censor themselves from participating in public conversation to avoid a similar fate? Marquette has violated core academic values, regardless of what one thinks of McAdams’ commentary or the shabby treatment of the graduate instructor he was criticizing (who deserves sympathy for the horrifying torrent of misogyny others directed at her).

    Even (gasp) liberal colleagues defended him, which is not uncommon.

    Even before the decision to strip McAdams of tenure was handed down, and he had merely been suspended, some of his colleagues were expressing concern. “Over the years Professor McAdams and I have disagreed on many issues—and he has excoriated me on his blog—but all my personal interactions with him have been uniformly civil and urbane. Again, as Cardinal Newman said, in a university many minds are free to compete. That’s the glory of it,” Professor Daniel C. McGuire wrote to the university’s president.** “The incident has a chilling effect on all members and staff since it implies that due-process protections may be brittle and uncertain at this university and specifically under your presidency. It is certainly not an aid in recruiting quality faculty.”

    **Of course, it hasn’t helped matters within the past 4 years regarding this “Fake News” mantra. Read carefully the advice from Ron Unz…

    I apply the same historical methods I did in my academic journal articles back in the 1980’s. You analyze the likely reliability of the raw information presented, look for confirming or refuting evidence, and then draw your own plausible conclusions…On a more serious note, many of my articles very heavily cite various MSM sources, so why would I do that if I believed they were always lying?”

    The fact of the matter is that “liberals” on this issue of free speech on college campuses are. dare I say, espousing “conservative” points of view. For example, Chris Rock said in 2016 on the topic of comedy and colleges:

    “I stopped playing colleges…not for their political views–but in their social views and their willingness not to offend anybody. Kids raised on a culture of ‘We’re not going to keep score in the game because we don’t want anybody to lose’. Or just ignoring race to a fault. You can’t say ‘the black kid over there.’ No, it’s ‘the guy with the red shoes.’ You can’t even be offensive on your way to being inoffensive.”

    He is not alone. Comedienne Judy Gold lamented “You can do jokes about anything if the jokes are funny…Why is that everyone has to adjust to everyone else?”

    https://www.newsweek.com/2016/06/03/college-campus-free-speech-thought-police-463536.html

    In 2016, Williams College (MA) sophomore Zachary Wood headed up an on-campus lecture series called “Uncomfortable Learning”. Wood, an African-American who grew up in one of the poorer neighborhoods in Washington, D.C., is a self described liberal, devoted to learning and books. He liked inviting controversial speakers, usually from the political right, to challenge young progressives at a liberal arts institution. First, he invited Suzanne Venker, an anti-feminist author and lecturer. After a campus and social media outcry, fellow “Uncomfortable Learning” leaders disinvited her and then resigned from the organization. Wood then formed a club of his own and invited John Derbyshire, a British-American writer who believes that “black dysfunction is a result of genetics”. An hour after Wood advertised several speeches of Derbyshire, Wood was swarmed. He was accused of providing a space on campus for hate speech. When Wood replied to one critic “So you would never bring a speaker who challenges your preconceived ideas”, someone retorted “I’d rather sell crack first”. From Wood’s perspective, “What hate speech is what people don’t like to hear. With Trump running [for president], he says controversial things on national television. It is imperative that we confront offensive views and afford college students the opportunity to learn how to engage constructively with people they vehemently disagree with. Shielding students from microaggressions does not improve their ability to argue effectively, it coddles them. At a time like this, uncomfortable learning is vital”.

    In Fall 2014, a student group called Everyone Allied Against Homophobia at Columbia University slipped a flier under the door of every dorm room on campus. The headline of the flier stated, “I want this space to be a safer space”. The text below instructed the students to tape the fliers to their windows. A junior named Adam Shipiro printed his own flier and taped it to his window, calling it a dangerous space. He wrote a letter that was published in the Columbia Daily Spectator, stating that “If the point of a safe space is therapy for people who feel victimized by traumatization, that sounds like a great mission. But I don!t see how you can have a therapeutic space that!s also an intellectual space.” The group later accused Shapiro of being homophobic.

    In other words, there is in-fighting among liberals (AND CONSERVATIVES**) as far as what certain things mean and what should be done to address those things.

    I thought conservatives preached personal responsibility. There are consequences for one’s actions. Perhaps the people there who breached the Capitol ought to have pondered the potential risks, including federal charges, loss of employment, and public humiliation. And it’s not “doxxing”, it’s providing information to law enforcement about people who broke the law.

    The IRA planned their exit before they engaged British Army patrols; the Brits knew this, so they covered each other down to the “brick” (team of four) level. Consequently there were relatively few “contacts” in relation to the number of patrols. Also, the IRA realized that they were riddled with “touts” and “supergrasses”–informers. Maybe THEY came to the table first. There are those in England AND NI who believe that their side lost, and some who believe that all three sides in this conflict lost, if you include the Loyalists.

    I’m a longtime close observer of my local Podunk Tech, and, whether faculty or staff, I’ve never seen a more fear-ridden work force in my life. They fear saying the wrong thing; they fear doing the wrong thing; they fear giving the wrong appearance to their supervisors or department chairs that might set them up for retaliation. And, the “wrong thing” can be anything the supervisor or department chair asserts is the wrong thing.

    I would reckon that most chemists (males) got going in that direction because they started building stuff that was dangerous – fireworks, match head bombs, black powder, etc.

    “Let’s be more precise. Under the pretext of individuals who had trespassed on federal property or groups who have shown a propensity for planning and/or carrying out acts against the federal government. Are you not for the rule of law?”

    I can only regard this as a (((bad faith))) argument. Whenever I hear the ludicrous expression “rule of law” wielded as a weapon, I recognize bad faith. We have not had anything approaching the rule of law in this country for decades. Nothing but “who, whom.” And the rot in federal law enforcement is especially egregious.

    But in any event, the point of the Capitol protest and its aftermath is the hysterical double standard—ruthless suppression, in stark contrast with the fawning approval conferred on BLM and Antifa as they burned cities to the ground and ransacked Michigan Avenue. It appears to be a false-flag event to justify rolling out God-knows-what “anti-terrorism” legislation by the senile pedo and his skank sidekick.

    Also frowned on, but still allowed, is the libertarian belief that the welfare state created economic disincentives for blacks to achieve more.
     
    Respectifully, Mark, you left out the real Libertarian argument, from me at least: Thusly and to whit, the welfare state over the last 55 years has incentivized dysgenics, enabling the irresponsible, a sector in which black people loom large, to be assisted in breeding large families, at the expense of the responsible, a sector in which white people loom large. This creates even more irresponsible black people and fewer responsible people of any sort.

    Biological factors play a large part in this theory.

    Achmed, I agree with that but many libertarians seem reluctant to use that argument because it rests on the foundation that there is a biological basis for things like IQ and responsible behavior. Many libertarians think the only reason for the difference between Somalia and Switzerland in the area of per capita income is that Switzerland has a more free market economy.

    I’m a libertarian but this is one area of disagreement I have with many libertarians. I think the economic success of a country is based on three things: human resources, a free market economy, and natural resources. Human resources includes the innate IQ of the population. When the U.S. had mostly European immigrants, a free market economy, and a small population and lots of natural resources was when it had the most economic growth. Our current immigration and welfare policy is causing all those factors to reverse. The country has more nonwhites, they mostly vote for socialists, and the U.S. is becoming more crowded at the same time our natural resources are dwindling.

    Mr. Sailer's heavy handedness aside, academic freedom in college must be protected, and more liberals than he (maybe even you) cares to admit agree.

    There was a case at Marquette a couple of years ago that drew national attention. Perhaps the professor at Central Florida can draw inspiration and fight back.

    https://www.theatlantic.com/education/archive/2015/02/stripping-a-professor-of-tenure-over-a-blog-post/385280


    Academics all over the United States ought to denounce the firing of the 69-year-old, a Harvard Ph.D. who taught courses on American politics and public policy. If tenure can be taken away based upon one controversial blog post, what protection does it offer? How many tenured professors will censor themselves from participating in public conversation to avoid a similar fate? Marquette has violated core academic values, regardless of what one thinks of McAdams' commentary or the shabby treatment of the graduate instructor he was criticizing (who deserves sympathy for the horrifying torrent of misogyny others directed at her).
     
    Even (gasp) liberal colleagues defended him, which is not uncommon.

    Even before the decision to strip McAdams of tenure was handed down, and he had merely been suspended, some of his colleagues were expressing concern. "Over the years Professor McAdams and I have disagreed on many issues—and he has excoriated me on his blog—but all my personal interactions with him have been uniformly civil and urbane. Again, as Cardinal Newman said, in a university many minds are free to compete. That’s the glory of it," Professor Daniel C. McGuire wrote to the university's president.** "The incident has a chilling effect on all members and staff since it implies that due-process protections may be brittle and uncertain at this university and specifically under your presidency. It is certainly not an aid in recruiting quality faculty."
     
    **Of course, it hasn't helped matters within the past 4 years regarding this "Fake News" mantra. Read carefully the advice from Ron Unz…


    I apply the same historical methods I did in my academic journal articles back in the 1980's. You analyze the likely reliability of the raw information presented, look for confirming or refuting evidence, and then draw your own plausible conclusions…On a more serious note, many of my articles very heavily cite various MSM sources, so why would I do that if I believed they were always lying?”
     

    The fact of the matter is that "liberals" on this issue of free speech on college campuses are. dare I say, espousing "conservative" points of view. For example, Chris Rock said in 2016 on the topic of comedy and colleges:


    “I stopped playing colleges...not for their political views--but in their social views and their willingness not to offend anybody. Kids raised on a culture of ‘We’re not going to keep score in the game because we don’t want anybody to lose’. Or just ignoring race to a fault. You can’t say ‘the black kid over there.’ No, it’s ‘the guy with the red shoes.’ You can’t even be offensive on your way to being inoffensive.”
     
    He is not alone. Comedienne Judy Gold lamented “You can do jokes about anything if the jokes are funny...Why is that everyone has to adjust to everyone else?”

    On the topic of understanding alternative points of view in the face of being "canceled"...

    https://www.newsweek.com/2016/06/03/college-campus-free-speech-thought-police-463536.html


    In 2016, Williams College (MA) sophomore Zachary Wood headed up an on-campus lecture series called “Uncomfortable Learning”. Wood, an African-American who grew up in one of the poorer neighborhoods in Washington, D.C., is a self described liberal, devoted to learning and books. He liked inviting controversial speakers, usually from the political right, to challenge young progressives at a liberal arts institution. First, he invited Suzanne Venker, an anti-feminist author and lecturer. After a campus and social media outcry, fellow “Uncomfortable Learning” leaders disinvited her and then resigned from the organization. Wood then formed a club of his own and invited John Derbyshire, a British-American writer who believes that “black dysfunction is a result of genetics”. An hour after Wood advertised several speeches of Derbyshire, Wood was swarmed. He was accused of providing a space on campus for hate speech. When Wood replied to one critic “So you would never bring a speaker who challenges your preconceived ideas”, someone retorted “I’d rather sell crack first”. From Wood’s perspective, “What hate speech is what people don’t like to hear. With Trump running [for president], he says controversial things on national television. It is imperative that we confront offensive views and afford college students the opportunity to learn how to engage constructively with people they vehemently disagree with. Shielding students from microaggressions does not improve their ability to argue effectively, it coddles them. At a time like this, uncomfortable learning is vital”.
     
    ...

    In Fall 2014, a student group called Everyone Allied Against Homophobia at Columbia University slipped a flier under the door of every dorm room on campus. The headline of the flier stated, “I want this space to be a safer space”. The text below instructed the students to tape the fliers to their windows. A junior named Adam Shipiro printed his own flier and taped it to his window, calling it a dangerous space. He wrote a letter that was published in the Columbia Daily Spectator, stating that “If the point of a safe space is therapy for people who feel victimized by traumatization, that sounds like a great mission. But I don!t see how you can have a therapeutic space that!s also an intellectual space.” The group later accused Shapiro of being homophobic.
     
    In other words, there is in-fighting among liberals (AND CONSERVATIVES**) as far as what certain things mean and what should be done to address those things.

    Once they discover what your politics are, or if you deviate from the racial orthodoxy on affirmative action, they start fabricating reasons to fire you. They ferreted me out when I objected to hiring a Negro who held only a B.A. to teach college-level history courses when the market was glutted with Ph.Ds. I stupidly thought they wanted me to give an honest evaluation of the candidate. Black privilege is indeed real.

    Yep.

    It’s a commonplace for many people to believe that educated and experienced workers who are booted from their first-choice job will find work at their second-choice job. Maybe so. My observation is that those educated and experienced workers are often effectively barred from those second-choice jobs. Over-qualification that poses a threat to management control, armies of “good-enough” workers available through global labor markets, affirmative action (mostly favoring White women), etc. That “cascading” extends, in my view, down the food chain to third- and fourth-choice jobs in your primary field of expertise until you’re desperate for a fucking job, any job..

    I once took to removing from my resume the selective and very selective schools I’d attended. I felt like hell doing it.
