Tucker Carlson: There’s a Greater Admissions Scandal at America’s Universities, and It Involves Prominent Democrats

You’ve most likely heard of the bribery/university enrollment controversy involving some of Hollywood’s recognizable faces (here and here). But earlier this week, FNC’s Tucker Carlson observed that the greater admissions scandal involves prominent Democrats.

Against a backdrop of Chris Cuomo working out, Tucker asked how the CNN star — who “can barely speak English” — got into Yale.

“There are nights when Cuomo emits entire paragraphs that mean nothing at all. Just pure gibberish. Like pig latin or dogs barking.”

Who’s Chris? He’s the dude who put down prayer and the prayerful (here). Additionally, he’s the brother of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, who signed allowance for the murder of infants just seconds before birth (here) and claimed that America “was never great” (here).

The Fox host pondered:

“Is Chris Cuomo a secret genius? Does he have some amazing talent that’s invisible on TV? Maybe he speaks flawless Urdu? Or has a deep grounding in particle physics? Or can calculate pi to the final digit?. Actually, no — Chris Cuomo can’t do any of that. It turns out that he has an even more impressive qualification: His father was the governor of New York. If you want to get into a top American college, it’s best to have a parent who’s a well-known Democratic politician. That’s the most effective credential of all.”



Tucker’s list of the politically privileged whose offspring all got into exclusive schools included the following:

Bill and Hillary Clinton
Bill de Blasio (“the incompetent mayor of New York City”)
Sen. Michael Bennet
Sen. Amy Klobuchar
Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse
Sen. Bob Menendez
Sen. Chuck Schumer
Barack Obama

Subsequently, Tucker fingered the “sham” of earned access among the Democratic elite:

“How does this happen? Because our meritocracy is a sham. It’s fake. They tell you that only the most accomplished students get into these schools. They’re lying. Their friends’ kids get first dibs. Fellow members of their social circle. Kids whose families can help them down the road. The children of sympathetic politicians are an obvious priority for admissions officers. These are the same politicians who funnel many billions in tax dollars to colleges and universities every year. Letting a senator’s kid into Harvard is smart business. The quid quo pro is obvious. It’s a form of unregulated lobbying.”

Interesting point. It reminds me of a response I heard when the Tinseltown admissions story first broke — “Why didn’t they just do like all the other rich and famous parents: make a donation and bribe the school that way?”

With the more conventional method, as noted by the cable king, no one ends up in the slammer:

Remember the varsity blues scandal in California, where a group of socially-anxious soccer moms tried to game college admissions? This is far more corrupt, except nobody’s going to prison for it.”

Tucker sure knows how to get across a message.

Watch him go in the video above.

Bernie: Let’s bail out all the student-loan debtors — including the upper class

Westlake Legal Group bs-4 Bernie: Let’s bail out all the student-loan debtors — including the upper class Wall Street university The Blog Tax student loan FREE Elizabeth Warren debt college Bernie Sanders

A lame pander reeking of flop sweat. Warren beat him to the punch on this, remember, proposing in April that a small tax on mega-millionaires could pay off most of the student debt in this country. That was back when she was crawling along at around six percent in the polls and trailing Bernie by double digits. A splashy bailout for the young and young-ish was her way of trying to show Sanders’s progressive base that there are other choices on the primary menu this year. But even in lefty-pander mode, Warren’s plan placed limits on taxpayer largesse. Only the first $50,000 of debt for each debtor would be paid off under her plan. If you’re someone who racked up truly massive loans, as one aiming for a lucrative postgrad degree in law or medicine might, then you’d have to pick up some of your own tab. That was her concession to the poor optics of handing out cash to some of the best-paid members of America’s professional class. Can’t fight a class war in which the upper class benefits as much as, or even more than, the lower class, right?

Now here comes Bernie, two months later, nervously insisting that you can do that. Warren has roughly doubled her polling since April, mostly at Sanders’s expense; she’s already passed him in more than one national poll and stands poised to pass him in the RCP average soon if trends continue. The man needs a way to remind lefties that there’s only one true socialist in this race and all the rest, including Warren, will cuck out with half measures as president. So here it is: Student-loan forgiveness for everyone, full stop, without regard to their ability to pay. Doctors, lawyers, you name it — everyone’s off scot-free. (What I said about Warren’s plan in April is even truer here: Under this proposal, the less responsible you were in incurring debt you couldn’t afford and the less willing you’ve been to sacrifice in order to repay it, the more your government will reward you.) A class-war giveaway that doesn’t account for class feels absurd, but it makes sense as a primary pander. This is Bernie showing Democratic voters that no one but no one will be as bold in handing out free sh*t as he will.

Sanders is proposing to pay for the legislation with a new tax on financial transactions, including a 0.5 percent tax on stock transactions and a 0.1 percent tax on bonds. Such a levy would curb Wall Street speculation while reducing income inequality, according to a report by the Century Foundation, a left-leaning think tank, although conservatives warn it would stunt economic growth and investment…

“The cost will march toward $3 trillion and benefit a lot of wealthy families and future high-earners,” said Brian Riedl, an analyst at the Manhattan Institute, a libertarian-leaning think tank. “Of all problems requiring a $3 trillion federal expenditure, the college costs of middle- and upper-class college graduates seem lower-priority.”

A fierce debate has raged in left-leaning policy circles as well as over whether canceling student debt offers too much help to families with higher incomes. The top 40 percent of earners would receive about two-thirds of the benefits from Warren’s plan, according to Adam Looney, a former Treasury official under President Barack Obama who is now at the Brookings Institution, a center-left think tank.

That number is likely to be higher under Sanders’s plan, given that proposals by Warren and Castro do not call for wiping clean the debt of those earning over six figures.

He also wants to make all public universities and community colleges free, because why not? As for suckers like me who already paid off their debt or the many Americans who decided to pass on college for whatever reason — including, perhaps, because they didn’t want to take on debt — I don’t know what to tell you. There are no plans in Sanders’s or Warren’s proposals to compensate those who made the mistake of managing their financial obligations prudently, but Philip Klein is probably right that that’ll change soon. Now that Bernie’s offered to pick up the tab for everyone with current debt, the only move left to out-socialist him is to offer reparations to those who don’t have debt but might have if they’d handled things differently. Expect that plan from Beto or Buttigieg in a month or two.

There’s also the small matter of the middle and even lower class, most members of which didn’t go to college, having to fund this bailout with their tax dollars. Right, right, I know — Bernie says he’s going to fund it by taxing Wall Street. But every dollar extracted from Wall Street for a student-loan bailout is a dollar that can’t be applied to one of the many, many other expensive new entitlements which the left wants to introduce during a Sanders presidency. Remember, by one estimate this guy’s health-care plan will cost $32 trillion over 10 years. The tax he’s proposing on Wall Street to pay for this student-loan thing could have helped pay for that instead. You’ll have to pick up the slack for one program or another.

Ironically, although this plan is obviously aimed at winning back some progressive votes from Warren, I think it may end up helping her expand her appeal. Warren isn’t trying to win the nomination by consolidating progressives and counting on them to outvote the rest of the party. She’s pitching herself to the center too, insisting repeatedly that she’s a capitalist to contrast her relative moderation with Bernie’s socialism. It appears to be working, with some centrist groups beginning to see her as a potential compromise nominee between Bernie and the more centrist Biden. Having Sanders go nuts with student-loan relief makes Warren’s still-nutty-but-not-as-nutty capped handout of $50,000 per debtor seem prudent and “moderate” by comparison. It might even help her with some lefty voters who, while appreciating Sanders’s ambition, won’t easily digest the criticism that Bernie’s plan will primarily benefit postgrads with higher earning potential.

As fraught and alienating as it is, the case for racial reparations seems more straightforward to me than the case for bailing out a single generation of student-loan debtors en masse. I’d understand it more if the bailout targeted only the poorest students, or if it was limited to those who encountered a gruesome labor market in the first few years after the Great Recession, but there seems to be no logical limiting principle here and no explanation for why these debtors as opposed to debtors who are 10 years older should receive relief. It’s like a conservative caricature of a left-wing redistributionist program, lifting a pot of money from Wall Street and then looking for some pretext, without much rhyme or reason, to give it to someone else.

A Study Found 92% of Left-Wing Activists Still Live with Parents, and It’s Not Likely to Get Better

Westlake Legal Group AP_18073558227040-620x341 A Study Found 92% of Left-Wing Activists Still Live with Parents, and It’s Not Likely to Get Better university Unemployment student debt protest Politics millennials leftist left-wing Front Page Stories Featured Story democrats college antifa Activism

They’re marching down the street wearing black, their faces obscured by red bandanas or possibly a Guy Fawkes mask. They’re intimidating as they create a mob and chase after you, calling you a fascist and a Nazi because you don’t share their extreme ideology. They’re marching down the street bashing in car windows and vandalizing storefronts. They’re going to do all it takes to stop fascism and hate speech.

But they have to hurry this along because they have to be home before 10:30, or else their mom will be totally pissed off.

This is a likely story according to a Berlin study, but this is not a new story. In fact, the Daily Mail published these findings back in 2017 which showed that 92 percent of leftist activists that were arrested in Berlin still live with their parents, and what’s more, a third are completely unemployed:

The figures, which were published in daily newspaper Bild revealed that 873 suspects were investigated by authorities between 2003 and 2013.

Of these 84 per cent were men, and 72 per cent were aged between 18 and 29.

More than half of the arrests were made in the Berlin districts of Friedrichshain, Kreuzberg and Mitte, mostly during demonstrations.

A third of them were unemployed, and 92 per cent still live with their parents.

Why am I writing on it now? Because the story is making the rounds today, and after looking into it, the story likely hasn’t changed.

According to Fox Business, millennials are still living at home two years later:

A recent analysis found that 14 million adults between the ages of 23 to 37 are living with their parents, a sign that some millennials may have financial burdens.

The analysis by ZillowOpens a New Window. determined that 21.9 percent of millennials lived with their parents, up from 12.7 percent in 2000. More millennials chose to stay with their parents in areas where the rents were high. The study surveyed data from the U.S. Census Bureau and the American Community Survey.

While I’m not automatically assigning millennials to being leftist activists — I just barely fall within the age range myself — I will note that the age range of those living with their parents falls within the age range of those leftists in Berlin who were caught by police and got arrested for leftist radicalism in the streets.

The reasons millennials live with their parents has been evident for a long time. They owe monumental amounts of debt for a degree that is essentially useless. With everyone going for similar jobs, the jobs are all taken up rather quickly. Millennials end up living with mom and dad as they flip burgers and hope an opportunity comes along for solid employment.

Right now, the U.S.’s student collective student loan debt is around $1.5 trillion. Some companies, in order to attract younger workers as their boomers retire off, offer to help pay off the student debt.  This is all well and good, but all the boomers aren’t going to retire out all at once. Hoping you’re one of the millennial replacements is still a lottery.

Imagine you’re a millennial drowning in debt with little to no job prospects. You come home from flipping burgers to find your degree uselessly hanging on your wall. You’re fresh out of college and maybe leftist professors have planted seeds of doubt in your mind about the American system if they haven’t completely turned you against it and made you a raving lunatic. The American system isn’t exactly helping you either.

Then some politicians come along basically telling you that if you join them, they’ll completely wipe away your debt and proceed to promise you all these free things like Medicare for all. They tell you that you’ll be helping make the world a better place, which sounds great to someone who feels useless.

Maybe it started back in college, or maybe it starts online. You join some groups, you meet other people who draw you further in. One thing leads to another and you’re marching the streets chanting nonsense about the system. Maybe things get heated and soon you’re dragged into a confrontation with people who oppose your side. Things get heated and some things happen. You get arrested.

We can trace this back to the University which handed out a degree that’s worth far less than it charged and gave the students ideas that all the worst things they’ve ever heard about America are true. Society drilled it into the student’s mind, however, that without that degree the student would be worthless out of college. He or she worked hard to get that degree in hopes of a better future, only to not get one. It’s the saddest joke on millennials today.

Maybe college isn’t the best idea.

Kyle Kashuv’s Ousting from Harvard Isn’t About Decency, It’s About Punishing Wrong-Think

Westlake Legal Group e1285c27-52f2-45a1-b211-7efe5ba760b3-620x317 Kyle Kashuv’s Ousting from Harvard Isn’t About Decency, It’s About Punishing Wrong-Think university Politics Parkland Shooting Kyle Kashuv Harvard Front Page Stories Featured Story david hogg Allow Media Exception admissions Activism Academia

Parkland survivor Kyle Kashuv was recently informed by Harvard that despite his being previously accepted, he’ll not be attending after it was discovered that he had sent private text messages that contained horrible things being said such as repeated use of the “n-word” and violent rhetoric about Jewish people, though it should be noted that Kashuv is Jewish himself.

I’ve read the things Kashuv wrote in those text messages, and I can tell you that they are indeed horrible and idiotic. They are also the texts of a child who thinks no one is listening.

Kashuv took to Twitter and acknowledged that the texts were wrong, apologized for them, and swore to be better in the future, though I personally feel that last part is redundant as Kashuv has proven himself to be a positive force in the world without question.

Kashuv goes on in his thread to describe the back and forth he had with Harvard administrators after their decision of revoking his admission. Kashuv described his remorse for those messages and detailed how he has indeed changed over the past two years, in no small part due to surviving a school shooting that left over a dozen of his peers dead.

Still, Harvard wouldn’t bite. Kashuv was apparently too filthy to touch, which is a horrific standard to set given the fact that everyone has said something in their past that they regret and are remorseful for. I can’t put this disgusting move by Harvard better than Ben Shapiro did with his commentary about it on the Daily Wire.

This move by Harvard is the worst move I’ve ever seen in academia — and it represents the establishment of a standard so insane that no one can possibly withstand it. All those who have never written an embarrassing thing privately, please step forward. Not so fast, SJWs.

Demanding perfection is an odd standard to take by Harvard given its penchant for accepting, but rest assured, this isn’t about what Kashuv said in his message. The message was simply the excuse needed for leftist activists to punish Kashuv for his right-leaning stances and pro-gun activism.

His fellow Parkland survivor David Hogg will be attending Harvard despite the fact that Hogg did not have the grades to enter. Hogg had a 1270 as his SAT score. The bottom 25 percent of Harvard students have an average of 1460. For all intents and purposes, Hogg shouldn’t be there. Many people have worked harder and scored higher than Hogg and were still rejected. However, Hogg is a high-profile left-wing activist and therefore is welcomed in.

I’m willing to bet that if we were to see every message that Hogg ever sent we’d also find a few that would be distasteful. He has a habit of making wild claims that AR-15 owners are hunting people and that the NRA is a terrorist organization. These kinds of outlandish tweets are the things he says in public, and lord only knows what he’s throwing around in private.

Either way, I wouldn’t care. Neither Kashuv or Hogg should be denied entry into Harvard based off of jokes the did or didn’t make, but instead they should get in through meritocracy. That’s not the standard Harvard is setting, however.

The messages Harvard just handed down to the public are:

  • They don’t care how hard you worked to get good grades, they’re not looking at your grades
  • Only certain types of activism are acceptable and may be the key to being admitted whether you deserve it or not
  • Off-color jokes and stupid private texts are forbidden
  • The sins of your past are unforgivable
  • Don’t be a high-profile conservative

Message received, Harvard. Nothing short of left-leaning perfection is accepted at your University. Enjoy your bubble.

Greg Abbott Is On a Roll as He Destroys Anti-Free Speech Operatives On Texas Campuses

Westlake Legal Group Abbott-620x464 Greg Abbott Is On a Roll as He Destroys Anti-Free Speech Operatives On Texas Campuses university Texas Governor Greg Abbott Texas Social Justice republicans Politics Front Page Stories Free Speech Featured Story college Censorship Allow Media Exception Academia

Texas Governor Greg Abbott is on a limited government warpath right now, and his latest victim is the anti-free speech movement sweeping campuses across the United States.

Too often, college campuses cave to social justice warriors who do everything in their power to eliminate any kind of speech that would run contrary to their hard-left narrative. As such, campuses everywhere become infected with this despotic hold what can and can’t be said, either because the hard-left has infiltrated student governments or administration positions, or because the college is scared of them.

Not in Texas. Not now. Abbott posted yet another one of his famous videos in which he shows himself signing a bill that only grants more freedom to Texans.

“Some colleges are banning free speech on college campuses,” Abbott said. “Well, no more because I’m about to sign a law that protects free speech on college campuses in Texas.”

“Shouldn’t have to do it,” he added. “The First Amendment guarantees it. Now, it’s law in Texas.”

Abbott is correct. He shouldn’t have to do this at all, not just in terms of protecting free speech in federally funded places, but that this is necessary in places where students are supposed to be learning everything they can. Instead of being taught various aspects and views of humanity, they’re being forced to learn only critical theory and all the prejudices that come with it. They’re not taught how to think, they’re taught what to think.

Party of being taught what to think is forcing only some things to be heard. Anything contrary to the narrative has to go.

This isn’t education, this is brainwashing.

While it’s not going to fully cure the disease, forcing campuses to at least allow dissent to this hard-left agenda is a good step in reversing its course.

This is the third video Abbott has released showing himself terminating some form of government hold on something. Before this video, Abbott signed into law the ability for alcohol to be delivered to your home just like pizza is. Before that, he signed a law banning red light cameras throughout the state.

I defy you to name a better governor in office right now.

The Western Oregon University recently featured a Republican speaker and incited the reaction of college leftists, including its Antifa members, who attempted to storm the speech, in addition to ignoring simple questions and promoting murder.

According to Wall Street Journal contributor Andy Ngo, Joey Gibson of Patriot Prayer was to speak at WUO. This caused a reaction by the student body government who sent out an email to students denouncing hate speech. What hate speech Gibson was guilty of was not discussed.

Antifa set up a mural in readiness for Gibson’s arrival that read 183-PIG, which according to Ngo, 183 is slang for murder.

Leftists turned out for event as well, bearing signs that accused attendees and the speaker of being a Nazi. Another person took photos of every person entering the room where the speech was to happen.

Ngo took a picture of standing-room-only space available to see the speech. Ngo wondered if the attendance was a result of the student government attempting to warn people away from watching Gibson.

Security was put up around the entrance to the room, though the protesters gathered around the glass and attempted to drown the Gibson out from there. One man kept screeching in a heavy metal voice according to Ngo, who posted a video of it.

Some of the opposition still showed up to the speech to try to corner Gibson. It didn’t go well, as one woman threw out unfounded accusations about President Donald Trump’s words and actions, including his supposed rape of various women.

Ngo also posted footage of Gibson interacting with the protesters before the event. He asked what hate speech he was guilty of, and no one could come up with an answer for him. After some time attempting to get them to see reason, the protesters attempted to drown Gibson out by singing “You Are My Sunshine.”

Ngo attempted to get footage of the interaction between officers and protesters attempting to force their way in, but was blocked by protesters who held signs up to block his view. Ngo said that one such attempt to gain access to the room almost resulted in a fight.

After the speech was done, protesters formed a wall of lines in order to make a “walk of shame” for attendees.

This is another example of how college leftists do and think what they’re told instead of actually attempting to sit down with others, get to know them, and attempt to find a middle ground. They’re told Republicans are evil and should never be listened to or engaged with.

This too often results in echo-chamber thinking that begins to become dangerous, with concepts like physical force and violence become perfectly acceptable to them.

We’re often told that the right are the scary, violent people that we as a society should consistently watch out for, and yet it’s the radical left that continues to demonstrate that their violence is the real threat.

This was demonstrated quite recently by the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill when a woman approached a couple of pro-life men with a sign on campus. The woman asked the men if the sign was theirs and immediately began pummeling and kicking the man.

The two men remained very calm throughout the attack, with one of the men calling the police. As he did so the woman began screaming at them about how they were horrible people and that the sign they were displaying was “triggering.”

The police arrived and informed the two men that while she wasn’t being put in handcuffs she was being arrested via citation and charged with a misdemeanor.

While I wish I could say that this was an uncommon occurrence, this is just a handful of attacks on pro-lifers by crazed pro-abortion advocates.

Last October, a video surfaced of a woman who was continuously attacked by a pro-abortion social justice advocate when she wasn’t looking. Attempts to separate the pro-abortionist from the pro-life woman were unsuccessful, and the woman continued to try to incite violence after the pro-life woman managed to get away.

Just earlier that month, a pro-abortion man with a history of violence against pro-lifers roundhouse kicked a woman who had come to debate him.

Thankfully, in all cases, these violent pro-abortion advocates were punished in some way, shape, or form. However, this obviously hasn’t stopped pro-abortion radicals from lashing out at pro-lifers.

Texas State University students arrested for stealing another student’s MAGA hat

Westlake Legal Group arrest Texas State University students arrested for stealing another student’s MAGA hat university The Blog police MAGA hat

Another MAGA hat incident. This one wouldn’t have amounted to much except the hat-stealing student did this in front of campus police and then refused a police request to return the hat. Three other protesters got carried away trying to get tough with the police.

The incident started Wednesday morning when a student named Tyler walked over to talk to some left-wing protesters. The protesters were out that morning because a group of pro-free speech bikers called the Texas Nomads were supposedly coming to campus. But the bikers never showed up. From Campus Reform:

The biker group had planned a protest at Texas State University over the student government’s failed attempt in April to ban the conservative group Turning Point USA from campus, the Austin Statesman reported. According to a Wednesday statement from the university, Texas Nomads SAR never showed.

As the conversation between Tyler M. and the leftist protesters continued, a crowd gathered around them, Tyler M. told Campus Reform…

Tyler M. said that as bystanders tried to quell the tension, “that’s when I felt someone kind of come up behind me and kind of grab my hat, lift it up, and try to run away.”…

The Texas State student said police later approached the student who was holding his hat and asked her to give it back. Tyler M. said she “hesitated at first but then she did drop it and as soon as the hat fell on the floor [sic] she kicks it.”

And that’s when Tyler started filming. It looks like the young woman in the grey top is the one refusing to release the hat. The video follows the hat across the ground and when the camera turns back around, police are arresting a second person dressed in a black hoodie. I honestly can’t tell if that person is a man or a woman. Someone off camera asks what happened and another voice (maybe Tyler) says she “hit the police.” Meanwhile, someone else is shouting and crying about the arrest of her friend.

The police march everyone to the police station on campus and the hysterical woman is now shouting at Tyler “Why are you here?!” He’s there as a witness of course.

Finally, police get everyone inside and then a third protester starts screaming at a policeman in plain clothes, “Don’t f***ing touch me!” Of course, policemen are allowed to touch you if you lose control and start bodying up to a cop in a police station. She gets arrested too. The fourth arrest happened outside the station after this clip ends.

Texas State University Police Chief Laurie Clouse released a statement Thursday explaining what happened:

The incident that led to the arrests began when one student took a hat off another student’s head and fled. Police officers quickly interceded and directed the student to drop the stolen property. The student refused multiple directives and was then detained with the intention of being given a ticket for theft. The student was later arrested after providing a false identity to the police. Another student ran to the officers during this incident and began to interfere. After refusing to comply with the officers’ directions, this student was arrested for interference with public duties. When the students were escorted into the police department, other students followed and one additional student was arrested in the police department lobby for interference. A fourth student was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct outside the police department.

Although the investigation is ongoing, the initial review indicates that the officers involved acted appropriately with the goal of preventing further escalation. When a theft occurred in plain view, they were right to act. I understand it’s difficult to watch the arrests on social media, however, the officers were there to protect all of our students. We expect our students to obey the law.

It’s a lot of unnecessary drama over a hat. I’m sure the police had better things to do than arrest emotionally incontinent students trying to show off in front of their friends. But as you can see above, they handled it professionally and only arrested people who came at them.

WATCH: Planned Parenthood Supporters Mocking Pro-Lifers Shout About Urinating In Graves of Babies

During a pro-life event at the University of San Antonio in Texas, Planned Parenthood supporters began waving around Planned Parenthood signs and mocking pro-lifers by singing about how having abortions is their “kink,” and how the “fetuses are in the ground.”

According to Students for Life, Students for Life Regional Coordinator Sarah Zarr said that the Planned Parenthood activists confronted the Students for Life members the moment they set up. The activists told them that they weren’t allowed to be there because the issue affects black women and that the pro-life students had “white privilege.”

After attempting dialogue, the activists gathered in the memorial where the pro-life students had set up 911 crosses for the number of lives Planned Parenthood takes every day. The activists began saying vile things, such as bragging that they had an abortion, pointing at a cross and saying “there’s mine.” They also began chanting, and one of the activists wondered allowed with “what if we pissed in the fetus graveyard?”

One girl sang “hey, hey, what’s that sound? All the fetuses are in the ground.”

According to Students for Life, a man approached a student named Mica at the table the pro-life students had set up and began to argue, and after some words, stole their pamphlets and threw them in a gutter:

“A guy walked up to our table and told my student Mica: “this is bullshit” (looking at our display and info on the table). He then picked up whole stacks of our topics cards, these “women’s right to know” booklets we had, and our unsafe book that was just for display and ran off Mica chased after him and said hey that’s our property, you can’t take all of those please give them back. He kept running till he got to a gutter and threw it all in the gutter. 

We hear often from pro-abortionists that they don’t like abortion, but that it’s necessary. However, these students openly mocked pro-lifers by celebrating the idea of abortion, going so far as to giggle about the idea of urinating the graves of those aborted.

University of Notre Dame’s New Gender Relations Director Has Heinous History of Sexism

Westlake Legal Group ab3a70e9-aacc-47f3-87e4-fc076b332956.v1-620x413 University of Notre Dame’s New Gender Relations Director Has Heinous History of Sexism university Social Justice Sexism Notre Dame Misandry Front Page Stories Feminism Featured Story Academia

The University of Notre Dame’s new gender relations director doesn’t hide her misandry well enough, if she’s trying to hide it at all. Looking through her past tweets, it’s clear that student Anne Jarrett is not very fond of men despite her numerous sexual encounters with them.

According to College Fix, Jarrett’s recent social media activity shows that she believes men “don’t deserve opinions” and that she doesn’t want to “f*** them.” However, in another tweet, she claims to have a “lot of sex with men” despite her apparent dislike of them:

Jarrett, a junior, tweeted March 29: “The only thing this has taught me is that men are gross and they don’t deserve opinions and I categorically do not want to f*** them.” This was in response to harassment she received on a post of herself wearing bike shorts to protest an op-ed that called leggings immodest.

She said in other tweets regarding men: “I have a lot of sex with men for someone who condemns so vehemently giving men opportunities to disappoint me,” and “Cory Booker is the only man who is allowed to speak ever again thank you this has been a PSA.”

In yet another example of statements that have caused some to worry about her ability to be the leader of positive relationships between genders at Notre Dame, she said in an Instagram post last year: “You can trust [women about their bodies]. If we wanted your ignorant, irrelevant opinions, we’d ask.”

She also seems to have a problem with the Catholic beliefs that her University represents.

“I see the [Catholic] faith as inherently against female empowerment and sexual freedom,” said Jarrett according to College Fix.

Upon some having a problem with her taking her directorial role within the university, Jarrett defended herself by stating that she was “not here to teach or promote my own agenda.” However, as College Fix reported, promoting her own agenda is exactly what she seems to be doing as indicated by her recent email to members of the Gender Relations department:

Addressing her department members as “folx,” (a gender-neutral term which includes transgender and non-binary people), she laid out some of the initiatives she plans to pursue in the next school year, including: “sexual assault prevention,” “trans* student rights,” “PRIDE week,” “pronoun emphasis,” “discussions about sex/gender/sexuality,” “menstrual product availability,” and “PARIETALS ‘reform’ (REMOVAL).”

Parietals is the policy at Notre Dame that people of the opposite sex are not allowed to be in the bedrooms of the university’s single sex dorms from midnight to 9 a.m. on weeknights and 2 a.m. to 9 a.m. on the weekends. In an article for the Huffington Post, Jarrett explained that she opposes this policy because “it seems to enforce heteronormativity and ignore that LGBTQ+ students exist here.”
