The (Corrupt) Multicultural Left Is Totally In Charge of the University

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 monstrous injustices! A faculty member writes in congratulating everyone for the victory, but notes in all seriousness 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).
University life is getting increasingly surreal. There’s this item from a recent event at UC-Santa Cruz:
A few hundreds students came to spell out “FREE EDUCATION” with their bodies – some naked – on the East Field of UC Santa Cruz campus Tuesday.
The peaceful demonstration was meant to bring awareness to growing budget cuts for the UC system. …
“I hope the demonstration will help people think outside of the box (and) come up with inclusive solutions that could address everyone’s needs,” said Christine King, who teaches transformative action at UCSC’s Kresge College and one of the people in the plane that flew over.
A course in transformative action? And of course, education should be free to students while taxpayers pick up the tab for high 6-figure salaries for the public liberals who man the administrative positions and for professors like Dr. King whose far left attitudes are diametrically opposed to the great majority of taxpayers.
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.

BUT this is an opportunity to organize, not just craziness. It legitimizes European Americans and their allies to petition for similar recognition in a way they could never have done without this other push.
If you want to throw some more craziness into the mix, use the name European & Atlantic Islander Americans (like Asian & Pacific Islanders) for organizing. That creates a little whirlwind of outrage. [The Atlantic Islanders being the Azoreans, Irish, Scottish, English, Isle of Man, etc.]
My friends and I have long since taken advantage of such openings and, in one notable experience 15 years ago, we petitioned the City Council of San Jose to allow a European & Atlantic Islander American Employee Association to fill that gap in the then-existing ethnicity-based employee associations. The application was approved, and the activist employees were sent away with instructions to write their bylaws. Then a month later all ethnicity-based employee associations were revoked. So we didn’t get the European & Atlantic Islander American Employee Association, but we got a voice in civic matters, and the end result was the dissolution of all ethnicity-based associations. Not bad for simply “going beyond” which is what we call this kind of activity.
And the European & Atlantic Islander American activist caucus formed to write the bylaws is still in existence. Let’s say win, win, and win.
Franklin Ryckaert March 2, 2011 – 4:59 pm | Permalink Your idea of forming European & Atlantic Islander American associations is really
funny and seems to be effective at the same time.It either uses the (crazy) system to your own advantage or destroys it altogether.A win-win situation Congratulations!
Protocols of Albion March 2, 2011 – 6:57 pm | Permalink Franklin catches the esssence of how this “game” will play out when he says, “It either uses the (crazy) system to your own advantage or destroys it altogether.”
Please note that this strategy WORKS. Don’t slink away whining about not being included, take a seat at the table and demand that European & Atlantic Islander Americans be represented just like everyone else.
Steve March 2, 2011 – 7:00 pm | Permalink This is exactly the kind of activism we need to counter the left. By creating a group associated with white ethnicity with a catchy phrase such as the “European & Atlantic Islander” group, the left will find it difficult to undermine while trying to advance minority groups while keeping whites in check. If England can have the BNP (British National Party), why can’t we initiate the ANP (American National Party)?

You CANNOT because the United States of America was never constituted to be a national entity. It was constituted around ABSTRACTIONS created by Freemasonry.
I recommend you study the history of the two or three decades leading up to your Civil War — and the politics surrounding the outcome of this conflict — as it was this terrible event that finally settled the issue.
You Americans have no nationality! Until you do something drastic to change the situation, then please realize that each of you are little more than tax paying ‘assets’ owned by an offshore Corporation controlling an oversized military machine.
Furthermore, you were collectively declared bankrupt by the Jewish President FDR in 1933 via Executive Orders: 6073, 6102, 6111 and 6260.
These EOs have not yet been revoked which is why, technically speaking, Martial Law still applies throughout the USA, and why you were collectively fleeced of $-billions in tax dollars in late 2008 by the crooks who are running the Federal Machine on behalf of your Creditors.
Joseph E Fasciani March 4, 2011 – 10:49 pm | Permalink Gadzooks, an excellent idea, truly brilliant! If only we’d thought of it in the Sixties, when I was more active, we increasingly disenfranchised Grey Panthers wouldn’t be on the sidelines as much as we are.
I know that a SMALL percentage of us, say 5%, are fat cats, but believe me when I tell you that at 68 I get by on feral gubbmint pensions and assistance of C$ 1,100/month, OK? And that’s after 45 productive years in both USSA [not a typo] and Kanada. I was a very active small business creator/operator, generating many dozens of good jobs and learning opportunities for those who came to work with me.
Anyhow, you can google or cluuz ‘joseph e fasciani’ and get some idea of what I’m about, though my poems are my best part, or so I believe. Great work here on everything I’ve ever read, good comments, keep up the very great work, it’s needed more than ever!!

arthurdecco March 5, 2011 – 11:46 am | Permalink Brilliant move, DM. I will be joining together with a few like-minded friends and fellow travellers to form our own local European & Atlantic Islander American Association as soon as I can organize a meeting.
Joseph March 2, 2011 – 4:43 pm | Permalink Yes, all these preposterous fictitious “identities” are supposed to be taken seriously otherwise you are a sequence of epithets such as intolerant, homophobic, sexist and so on. Real identities that have political, cultural and biological meaning are considered to be either “irrelevant” or else expect another torrent of epithets, general vilification etc.
This is outrageous and has to be stopped, for aesthetic reasons if nothing else.
Someday March 2, 2011 – 5:00 pm | Permalink Minorities get annoyed when the see whites getting in on the ‘victimized group’ action through being LGBT. And genuine lesbians butches aren’t too happy when they have to compete with male to “female” transsexuals.
Joseph March 2, 2011 – 5:25 pm | Permalink 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.
The translation table is:
Communism Political Correctness/Culture marxism
bourgeois White Male
worker Minorities, various sexual identities etc.
Chris Moore March 2, 2011 – 6:17 pm | Permalink Joseph: “It is always about destruction; never order, harmony and beauty, always chaos, disharmony and ugliness.”
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 people are enemies of America and American harmony.
