The (Corrupt) Multicultural Left Is Totally In Charge of the University
(Occidental Observer) -- by Kevin MacDonald --
Typical day at the university. On the faculty email list for the entire College of Liberal Arts, an activist says we absolutely must petition the President for an LGBT Advisory Council (Lesbian, Gay, Bi-sexual, and Transgendered; I wasn’t sure what that last one meant, so here’s Wikipedia’s take for those unaccustomed to leftspeak). Campus liberals quickly indicate their public support by responding positively on the list, thereby earning their stripes with their colleagues and ensuring they will get tenure if they don’t have it and get to go to good parties if they do. In addition to a great many individual faculty members, seven department chairs and two entire departments joined in the effort. No one was so bereft of all human feeling as to oppose such an initiative. So the President agreed to it and the Dean announced the decision on the list.
Victory!! What were the odds that something so deeply controversial in a contemporary university environment would be approved?
But wait! There are still gaping injustices! A faculty member writes in congratulating everyone for the victory, but notes that “it cannot be right that there is no Chicano/Latino Advisory Council; nor no Africana/African-American Advisory Council; nor no Asian-American Pacific Islander Advisory Council; nor no ’American Indian/First Peoples Advisory Council’, nor any others that might seem necessary.”
So now the list is filled with people agreeing there is a dire need to have more Advisory Councils for every possible group (excepting European Americans, of course)...
Speaking of administrators, Duke University is showing that this leftist bent has a vicious side that is nevertheless very profitable for professors who play their cards right:
What Duke University and Durham, along with the mainstream media, did to Reade Seligmann [one of the Duke La Crosse players accused of raping a prostitute] was utterly shameful. The way that Duke subsequently rewarded the worst offenders in this case, including promoting the most dishonestly vocal faculty members to being deans and high-level administrators, demonstrates that the leadership of that university is proud of what it did. It is proud of the fact that it managed to become the first university in U.S. legal history to be cited in a change of venue document that claimed the university created an atmosphere that endangered the rights to a fair trial by the three falsely-charged lacrosse players. (“The Obama Administration’s Vicious Attack on Reade Seligman” LewRockwell.com)So in addition to tenure and good parties, faculty jumping on the CSULB Advisory Council bandwagon may even get rewarded with big salary perks and power by becoming deans and other high-level administrators. Needless to say, I am shocked—shocked to find that public displays of selfless concern for the downtrodden turn out to be anything but selfless...MORE...LINK
Joseph [in article comments]: “That is the purpose of all this. Create ridiculous identities, within a group, and have them tear the group apart by infighting and incite everyone against the “white male”. Similar, of course, to the idea of communism, whose purpose is to tear a nation apart through inciting the bourgeois against the worker and conversely. It is always about destruction; never order, harmony and beauty, always chaos, disharmony and ugliness.
Chris Moore comments:
The primary impetus behind forming these ethnic and sexual-identity groups is gaining public money, and to separate their elements from any patriotic nationalist identity as Americans, instill them with resentments and a sense of victimization and entitlement from the public trough, and then assemble them into components of the left-wing racket that promises to deliver the goods.
The answer? Take a way the public money that incentivises division and resentment by implementing national economic libertarianism (and a voucher system for any public schooling, for example), and drive out the left-wing instigators and exploiters of resentment and division by revealing how they are attacking America, the American people, and American harmony by sowing strife and division.
I know, easier said than done with the media and large factions of government and private enterprise under the control of Zionists who instigate and profit from all of this (themselves a particularistic special interest), but the majority of Americans who aren’t in on the rackets would come down on America’s side if they could be made to see that all of these self-serving special interests are enemies of America and American harmony.
