Professor Calls For The Elimination of the Republican Party and Purging “Nazified” People From Congress, Universities, and “Regular Jobs”

The media has been airing discussion of hosts and leading figures like Katie Couric on “deprogramming ” Trump supporters or treating Trump supporters as a cult, including a CNN interview with an actual “cult expert.”  Since that would include over 70 million Trump voters, the hyperbolic language can be dismissed as just more examples of our rage-filled political environment. After all, a few days after the election, a law professor declared that even questioning the Biden electoral victory was tantamount to being a holocaust denier. One professor however has taken this call even further in declaring such supporters are worse than the Nazis and heralding the need for the same type of treatment seen with the Nuremberg trials, including the apparent elimination of the Republican Party. Smith College Professor Loretta Ross, who teaches women’s and gender studies, rejected calls for unity and instead called for punitive action against supporters in Congress, universities, and “regular jobs.”

In an article in CounterPunch Ross declares that there can be no unity with Trump supporters and that the Republican Party itself cannot continue to exist:

“Republicans are no longer entitled to exist as a legitimate political party because this authoritarian backlash has been building since new Civil Rights laws were passed in 1964 and 1965 in response to white racist violence captured on TV that required the National Guard to quell. Then-President Lyndon Johnson predicted that most white people would flee the Democratic Party to join the pro-segregationist, anti-feminist, and anti-gay revanchist political movement of George Wallace, Richard Nixon, and Ronald Reagan. Every undemocratically selected Republican president since the 1960s (by an electoral college designed to be disenfranchising) has failed to repudiate this neo-fascist wing of their party.

I’m through giving Republicans the benefit of the doubt after 50 years.”

She is not alone in that view. Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin recently declared on a television program (with various media figures who made no objection) that “We have to collectively, in essence, burn down the Republican Party. We have to level them because if there are survivors, if there are people who weather this storm, they will do it again.”  Notably, such language is similar to a call recently by James Comey and is not viewed as incitement. Rubin also called for a blacklisting of Trump supporters from universities and the media, a call that has been made by Democratic figures in Congress as well as academics: “I think it’s absolutely abhorrent that any institution of higher learning, any news organization, or any entertainment organization that has a news outlet would hire these people.”

Professor Ross shows no concern for free speech or academic freedom as she calls for identifying and condemning anyone who is viewed as complicit with Trump over the last four years so that they can be “treated with the same public condemnation that the Nazis received after World War II.”

What is unnerving is that such views are now common on the Internet and increasingly common at universities. Many professors who send me such columns admit that they are afraid to speak out. There is a rising level of intolerance at universities. In over 30 years of teaching, I have never witnessed the level of intimidation at colleges and universities that we have today. Indeed, these columns are meant to normalize such calls for curtailing free speech and academic freedom.  It is an effort not just to retaliate but to use the chilling effect of such threats to silence others (including effectively barring opposing viewpoints from being published). Rather than denounce such views an inimical to our intellectual mission, some professors are rushing to prove their own bona fides by denouncing colleagues or dismissing free speech values. They are afraid and I cannot blame for that fear. However, silence or passivity in the face of such calls will come at too high a price for our colleges and our country.

Just a year ago, Professor Ross was featured on MSNBC for her stand against cancel culture when she said “We’ve become too intolerant and too unforgiving of mistakes, unless we make them. And then, we only actually want to forgive the mistakes of the people we already know. We need to have a more forgiving society.”

That message appears to now be discarded in favor of open intolerance in the cause of tolerance. As for calls from people like President Joe Biden for reconciliation and healing, Ross balked at the very notion. She calls for Trump supporters to be denied jobs, media opportunities, publishing contracts, and all other opportunities. What is particularly chilling is her use of a statement from philosopher Karl Popper: “In order to maintain a tolerant society, the society must be intolerant of intolerance.” Thus, intolerance of opposing viewpoints is now tolerance. It is that easy.

  1. Democrat leftists are intolerant of other views and crush diversity of thought. To think there are professors indoctrinating university students with such prejudice is chilling. If I were still running my business and hiring, I would seek out those without university indoctrination.

    1. “If I were still running my business and hiring, I would seek out those without university indoctrination.”

      And how is that any different.

  2. ‘Sooooo are we all just going to forget now that Washington, DC was put under military occupation based on a “threat” that was never substantiated and never materialized?’

    @mtracey

  3. This is what Biden calls “unifying the country.” When a scum bag Dem says “unify” they mean say “Zig Heil!” to the DNC or eat feces and die.

  4. Cambodia Mid 1970’s Khmer Rouge (Khmer People’s Revolutionary Party (KPRP) led by Pol Pot—Civil Servant, doctors, teachers and professionals were stripped of possessions and forced into reeducations camps. Outlawed: private property, reading material, and religion, that was detrimental. They reformed agriculture to collective; children were taken and forced into military service or reeducation camps, and authorized rules governing VOCABULARY usage. The Khmer Rouge then renamed Cambodia, Democratic Kampuchea. We are seeing the first signs of such actions in the United States of America from the Liberal Democratic Party (DNC).

  5. At age 77, having spent 8 years to earn a BA and a JD, and having worked in the “real world” for 36 years, I am compelled to wonder what job people like Loretta Ross would be doing if colleges (and maybe high schools) hadn’t come up with stuff like courses and degrees about gender and race???

    And fancy it’s ALL from the Left. Any wonder freedom loving people despise them? Any wonder Trump got 74 million votes? Any wonder why revolution is in the air. You can’t dehumanize people without a push back and this one looks to be hard. On the other hand, the market for used Range Rovers might be booming in the coming months.

      1. “Calm down, Blow-Boy.”

        Anonymous the Stupid you think insult suffices as a rebuttal. It doesn’t until you are also able to provide content in context.

          1. Anonymous the Stupid has run out of things to say so he is repeating himself. What sounded stupid the first time sounds just as stupid the second.

              1. “S. Meyer/Allan repeats the phrase “Anonymous the Stupid” over and over and over… He is the king of repetition.”

                Don’t be so Stupid Anonymous the Stupid. Anonymous the Stupid is your name in descriptive terms. I am addressing you with the name you deserve. That is not unreasonable.

    1. WHAT!? You got a problem with KKK Grand Cyclop Dem. Sen. Robert Byrd being a DEMONKRAP? /sarc off

      I read every syllable of Bryd’s Wiki page. Byrd apologized for joining the KKK. But guess what? Nowhere, not one syllable nor quote does he ever condemn the KKK. How COULD he condemn a group in which most of his neighbor voters were members?

      Byrd also recruited “150” of his fellow sweet little Southern Baptist racist pig DEMONKRAP neighbors when Byrd joined, saying it was the highlight of his life, and joining the Klan was “necessary.”

      Further, Byrd also said it was wrong to join the Klan, but listen to his reason: because it limited his ability to attain higher political office!!! NOT because the KKK is/was the most evil hate filled group in the USA.

      1. What’s curious about Byrd is that he did not just ‘join’ the KKK. He was a vigorous organizer. He was doing this in 1942, when the 2d incarnation of the Klan was quite passe and had a membership < 1% of it's peak ca. 1923. He was doing this in West Virginia, a state with a very modest and dispersed black population and a white population that had other things on their mind than the blacks. He was also an antagonist of the black political agenda in Congress as late as 1967. Jennings Randolph who served along-side him and Chapman Revercomb who preceded him in the Senate were not antagonists of the black political agenda. (AFAIK, Byrd was the only such antagonists in the West Virginia congressional delegation over the period running from 1954 to 1971).

  7. This is what conservatives have been afraid of. This is the writing we’ve seen on the wall for years. This is the totalitarian side of the Democrat Party, and Leftism in general, that Democrats refuse to acknowledge.

    Yet they call us the fascists.

    We’re the ones fighting for free speech for everyone, including those we disagree with. We’re the ones fighting for the Constitution, while Democrats oppose free speech, the 2nd Amendment, equal protections and due process for white males, and the Electoral College.

    They burned and looted cities for months, assaulted federal buildings, broke into the Senate Offices during Kavanaugh hearings, seized city blocks of Seattle, and torched a police precinct, and riots were the language of the unheard. Dozens dead. Hundreds of police officers assaulted. People blinded by lasers.

    One single group of Trump supporters with a few Antifa thrown unlawfully break in to the Capitol building leading to 5 dead and Democrats label the entire Republican Party, the conservative movement, and most especially all Trump supporters as terrorists. Oh, but they reopen travel to actual terrorist hot spots.

    1. Karen: stop calling those who oppose Trump “the Left”. There is no such thing, and your overbite bottle blondie princess Ingraham is lying to you when she equates non peaceful protests with the entire Democratic Party or those who opposed Trump. It has been proven that there were no ANTIFA at the Trump Insurrection. No Democrats ever said the entire Republican Party was to blame for the Trump Insurrection, but they should stand up and speak against it, which some have done. McConnell said, point blank, that Trump lied about election fraud. Now, Trumpsters are turning against him. There is no “conservative movement”, either. Trump is not, and never was a “conservative”. Conservatives believe in things Trump abhors: marital fidelity, paying bills on time, being honest in dealings with others and personal character and integrity. Bill Kristol, one of the founders of The Lincoln Project, is a well-known conservative commentator. If you read what he says, he can explain to you why Trump is not a conservative, does not stand for conservative values and why so many Republicans formed The Lincoln Project to oppose Trump. No Democrat ever labeled all Trump supporters as “terrorists”, either. Those who attacked the Capitol on January 6th were domestic terrorists. They were stirred into action by Trump lying to them about winning the election in a landslide and having his “victory” stolen from him. They will believe this no matter what because Trump will never admit he lied. His mental illness does not allow for the possibility of failure or rejection.

      You’ve been listening to Fox again, but you need to stop doing this. They constantly generalize negative things like the temporary rioting and looting after the murder of George Floyd and others with the entire Democratic Party, and also lie about Democrats accusing Republicans of all negative things.

  8. Katie Couric? Oh wow…..we’re in Mensa territory now …………LOL

    The Left is so gullible that if one tried to collect their critical thinking skills, there would not be enough there to figure out their own names.

    1. Cindy — also not a Mensa gal — said this yesterday:

      Well, compared to what the Bidenazis are about to do to the rest of our Constitution, cheating Trump out of that 10 minutes won’t matter.”

      And one of her genius pals flagged it with a “like.”

      lol

      Yep: “critical thinking” to be sure… /sarc

        You’re the caveman critiquing the Vincent van Gogh. Intellectually, Cindy could buy you and sell you a thousand times over. Any reader can see that but self-awareness isn’t your strong suit nor is taking subtle hints. As Arty says, “we rarely see ourselves as others do.”

        1. For those who don’t know, mesblow is “friends” with Cindy and her husband.

          Isn’t he sweet, rushing to her aid?

          You’re right about one thing, though, mesblow: “”We rarely see ourselves as others do.” You might want to take that to heart.

          1. ““friends” with Cindy and her husband.”

            How nice that other people are able to get along. That is something Anonymous the Stupid never learned to do.

            Because you are so nasty and so Stupid without any redeeming features you are left with your pretend friends that you can produce at will. LOL What a fool you are. LOL

                  1. Anonymous the Stupid is always supplying links that aren’t on point. He uses links because he doesn’t have an imagination or enough knowledge to post anything of value.

                    1. You’re the king of repetition, pal. And — like Donald Trump — you’re a name-caller. You live on this blog and you’re pathetic.

              1. I guess, Anonymous the Stupid, you remember that quite awhile back I told you hyenas could laugh just like you so it didn’t make you appear smart. You have absolutely no originality. That is a sign of stupidity.

            1. “Yes, he’ll defend whatever you say, Cindy”

              Anonymous the Stupid, that is what real friends do. You don’t know that because your friends are pretend friends that you use when you need a friend to agree with you. Very sad.

              1. No, S. Meyer, “real friends” don’t tell you what you want to hear — they tell you the truth. No one expects you to understand, though.

                1. Good friends may not tell you what you want to hear but they defend you and tell you in the right way what you need to hear.

                  Pretend friends, friends of Anonymous the Stupid, write whatever the stupid one wants. They support his stupidity and their own. You will never become smart relying on pretend friends to protect you.

                  Don’t be jealous. I’ve read most of Cindy’s contributions and she has a wonderful wit and makes distinct points. She backs them up with well-formed arguments. So far, you offer endless word salads or simple cut and pastes to pass for your arguments. When that inevitably fails you get peevish and whiny and pout. That’s why Cindy laps you with a single sentence when you throw out a paragraph. It takes more intelligence to distill poetry than put out rambling prose. Cindy’s “There is another sky,” and you’re Bulwer-Lytton material. Sorry but you’re not persuasive and it’s an honest assessment. You know, like a real friend.

                  1. Anyone reading Ms. Bragg’s comments over an extended period of time will understand…, but mesblow is a southern boy and he feels compelled to try to defend the honor of his blog-friend — the truth be damned.

                    The flaw in his little argument — though it’s not much of one: We’re not friends and and never would be.

                    He has a few nicknames: mesblow, the bloviator, Big Mess, and I might be missing some others. He came by these nicknames because he so richly deserves them.

        Anonymous the Stupid, that is something we do not know, but she is an intelligent and sweet lady who shouldn’t be insulted by classless people like you..

        You on the other hand are on the top of your idiot group of one.

  9. Oh those Democrats, they never stop campaigning do they? It’s not like anyone sees them trying to filch power to themselves and install themselves as permanent rulers in a one party system; buttressed by admitting new states, stacking the Supreme Court to overwhelm the conservatives, and finally declaring all conservatives and their representatives traitors. Nothing we can do at this point except see how it plays.

    I don’t know, has it been tried before? I know you are not supposed to be able to fool all the people all the time, but how about if you only have to fool what is left of a people? Will that work?

  10. I don’t believe we need to look for examples outside of this country to understand what’s happening within it. We have a minority population that desires equality, freedom, liberty and the security of rights. And we have a majority population that desires to use the force of law to divide us by subgroups and protect the rights of certain groups while subjugating others. Sound familiar? It should. It was an era ushered in by the Democratic party called the Jim Crow Era. Hyperbole? Think again. Now the Democratic party is ushering in a new era (yet to be named) of lawful discrimination. They even have their own version of the KKK called BLM. On the bright side, it is a slim minority, our rights are for the most part intact and we are armed. It will not take 100 years to restore our civil rights.

    1. Most of Americans were unaware that the Democrat cities were creating Jim Crow cities within themselves. The rank hypocrisy of them now trying to place the blame on rural Americans and Trump voters for their own systemic racism and their own mal-treatment of the Black communities within their city limits, is a story that more Blacks need to hear, and trust me, it’s making the rounds.

      Loretta Ross is just the latest example of the state media holding up someone willing to offer a low-brow narrative that aligns with their own.

      1. I grew up in Minnesota in the 60’s. I lived in an area of Minneapolis that had a mixed race population and many of my friends were black and Native American. I wasn’t aware those Jim Crow laws until I read Black Like Me, sometime around the age of 10. I’m an Independent. To that end, Democrats and Republicans are not my enemy. My enemies are those within these parties that would support dividing us, so that policies can be instituted that infringe the rights of any of our citizens. At this point in time, the majority of those enemies exist within or are supportive of the Democratic party.

    2. BLM’s name should be written SOME black lives matter SOMETIMES! Not if the black person is a member of law enforcement, a person with conservative beliefs, an opponent of abortion, a Republican, etc.

  11. Great opportunity for President Biden to tamp down the Maoists in this country… if he really wants unity.

    1. At least we’re done with Trump’s brand of Mao-like actions. From the outset he adopted Mao’s governing strategy of never-ending crisis, confusion and chaos. He attacked every single American institution, leaving his followers dependent on him for any sense of stability or legitimacy. Trump manipulated his followers’ understandable mistrust of the media into a dependency on him for all truth. He spoke and tweeted in vague terms that he knew his most extreme devotees would take as support and encouragement. The red-hatted MAGA crowd were his middle-aged Red Guard, fully devoted to the rootless whims of Trumpism, eagerly awaiting his final order to begin the slaughtering and purging of anti-Trump heretics, as they had so often threatened to do on this very blog. Trump’s twitter feed was a Little Red Book in the pocket of every good party member. Even suggesting compromise with the opposition made you a treasonous commie RINO. Trump must be internalized. Criticism of Trump is criticism of YOU and everything good in the world. Everything Trump does is perfect…

      The biggest difference between Trump and Mao is that Mao was actually dedicated to his revolution. Fortunately, Trump was just making stuff up as he went and cowardly bailed on his cultists when things got too “real”.

      1. And Brad has been terribly upset since USA voters didn’t usher Mrs. Bill into the White House in November 2016! Now, however, he has a whole new angle from which to view the world. As my Mom would say when we were disappointed or complaining: “poor baby.”

        1. What a bizarre non sequitur. Distaste for Trump’s antics equals love of Hillary in this individual’s mind. HE’S BEEN FULLY PROGRAMMED. Sad.

        1. LOL I understand Trump never had the competence or popular support to dictate anything to anyone besides his true believers. His own cabinet despised and undermined him. Dear Leaser had temporary success as a disrupter, but these days we can only speculate about how far into the Trumpian abyss his megalomania, unopposed, may have taken us…

  12. Smith College Professor Loretta Ross, who teaches women’s and gender studies, …

    Her CV says it all.

    In saner times, anyone with that kind of scattershot academic record would be lucky to get a job interview as an admin at a university. But Smith College hired her as a “visiting associate professor” because “she was forced to raise a child born of incest”. Little comfort for the child to have that type of entry on a CV. She does eat well, though. Gotta feed that anger and hate.

    Ironic that she states

    Republicans are no longer entitled to exist….

    If Medicare and Medicaid stopped thwarting natural selection, womyns studies pinochle players would no longer be entitled to exist and suffer the consequences of evolutionary pressures.

    Look up the Black Book of Communism. Describes Communist atrocities well.

  14. Turley: I remember after the Bush jr. presidency there were significant portions of the right that just did not understand why there was such a backlash to him. Or rather they understood on an emotional level but knew it was okay to play dumb on an intellectual level.

    Same thing has been clearly happening with trump since he took office. Only 10x this time around.

    It’s going to be tough to turn your trump support around, Jon. And yes, agreed, university cancel culture seems a bit extreme of late. But insanity tends to breed insanity and on some level I sympathsize with your concern over diametrically opposed faculty turning on you at the academy. Complaining about ‘them’ isn’t the answer though. Trump horrified, pissed off, morally shattered a ton of norms and people are reacting — it’s not going to be pretty for awhile afterward.

    Side bar: “Rubin also called for a blacklisting of Trump supporters from universities and the media, a call that has been made by Democratic figures in Congress as well as academics: “I think it’s absolutely abhorrent that any institution of higher learning, any news organization, or any entertainment organization that has a news outlet would hire these people.””

    >> This would be a really good place, since it’s such a sweeping generalization, to footnote and document yourself a lot more in depth than you’ve done here. In venturing back into a world where truth matters, it’s going to require this level of attention to detail. Can’t just wing it in trump land to the same degree as maybe you’ve become accustomed to.

    Elvis Bug

    1. Bug, I guess the real message from this chamber pot of outrage is that you feel the attack on free speech is justified, given Trump’s tweets??

      If that’s correct, I call BS on that. If not, please, untangle your ganglia and clarify, because this screed was not at all clear.

      1. If all the ones he described were purged there would be NO phony democrat true name Socialist Regressives and no GOP; The Party system which is mentioned nowhere int he Constitution has been a massive failure both parties. are nothing more than pimps for the neo aristocracy establishment

        Far better to form Coalitions with groups who are like minded in their beliefs and ethics but allow differences in opinion for each of their prioritized. Constitutional Centrists for example put Constitution at the top where as the two parties put such items as wars, taxes , lack of ethics as a system of choice, abortion, socialism, even communism and fascism and much more as their nu number one priority. We got enough together in 2016 to have 40% of the vote and controlled to the point dictating the outcome to an inexperienced outsider. His job was expose the socialists sickness, eject some of them stop Comrade Clinton at any cost, destroy the DNC which now is the Comintern and led by a race traitor. and ditch over two dozen RINOs. Plus clean up all of the Obama Wars.

        Remember Citizens The Draft is still in force and being used to qualify young men for college loans. The Far Left did that when we tried to get rid of it after Vietnam. T’hen look at children and grand children and then look at the mirror. You sentenced them to miitary conscription any time the Congress wants to turn on that feature.

    2. The absolute worst thing Trump did was tweet. Words not actions.All the horrific things Democrats claimed he would do or was capable of, he NEVER did.And if anyone bothered to study his history, he has been the most nonrascist nonbigoted person imaginable, quite the opposite even when societally it was still tolerated he was showed courage n refused to go along.!Democrats n liberals have called conservatives n Trump supporters the most heinous inflammatory things imaginable the past 4 years, falsely accused them of crimes, attacked people physically n verbally just for wearing a MAGA hat or showing support for Trump.Imagine if the same was done to a Biden supporter? But Trump supporters are considered the dangerous ones, the political extremists.
      There is one more offense Trump has been guilty of to Democrats/liberals…his policies SUCCEEDED! Coupled with his loyal support n he and his supporters are not only despised but considered dangerous as a result.I fear that the new Democrat party n movement is the danger to our country, not Trump or Trump supporters. Trump never threatened our civil liberties or our free speech. The siege on the Capitol was an aberration for Trump supporters who historically have been & are peaceful n have believed n trusted in our Constitutional form of govt to be the remedy for our differences.Whether it was radicals, pandemic stresses of job/business loss, quarantines, etc. or a loss of faith that their govt systems were failing them (all they wanted was a REAL AUDIT of the contested states), the siege on 1/6 was not nearly as massive or as extreme as some of the riots of the past 8 months n has not happened since, unlike the ANTIFA/BLM riots…almost 300 riots, 50 dead, billions in damages, etc.
      Trump has NEVER done the things the left projected he would do. However Democrats/liberals/Biden admin in office/power/followers DO carry out everything projected n feared as we are witnessing in policy, executive orders, civil rights violations to violence! So who are the “political extremists”?!?

      1. No Anderson, the worst thing Trump did was stage an insurrection at the capital,. You might note they were all wearing Trump hats and shirts and carrying Trump flags. Not a coincidence. You might almost note none of the rioters lat summer were wearing Biden hats. Not even the many more peaceful protesters did.

        By the way, we don’t do audits of our elections here, and especially only of the states you lost.. I can tell you from the vote reported by the states, Trump lost it in 2016 too.

        1. Calm down, Joe. It was not an insurrection. It was a riot that ended quickly and was generally condemned, even by Trump.

      2. C Anderson:

        “The absolute worst thing Trump did was tweet. Words not actions.’
        ************************
        No it was the best thing he did. Words are the most powerful things on earth. Unlike actions which evaporate after the last muscle twitch, words linger in the air and the good ones last forever for all to see once they’re written down. They are this powerful because they stand for ideas and ideas form beliefs which eventually form attitudes. It’s why we have a culture of the First and the Second Amendment along with the written word detailing them. Everything we hold dear starts with solemn words from marriages to declarations of war to asking out your first date to pronouncement of the death sentence and funeral orations. And this is why the Left insists on dominating them with their new vocabulary and new pronouns. It’s huge battle to frame an issue with words. It’s the lawyers stock in trade and it’s why we understand the power of words.

      3. Who? Those who take or don’t take the Oath of office to the Constituion and instead embrace Marxist Leninist and a Biden Dream of a country bamed America United. with No Constitution.

    Did an academic paper on the Nuremberg Trials several years ago. Sure, if the Allies had wanted to punish people who were involved in the gassing of Jews, shooting of prisoners, use of slave labor, etc., I would have had no objection. Went way beyond that. The Allies had done many of the same acts themselves, plus what authority did the USSR have to judge anyone when Communists had committed their own “crimes against humanity”? And now I can hear frantic leftists start ding an internet search in order to try to “doxx” and expose my heresy.

    During the Nuremberg Trials Admiral Chester Nimitz offered an affidavit in support of Admiral Karl Doenitz. Nimitz said he ran his submarines on U-boat principles. I guess Nimitz is a ‘nazi” now using current wokeness standards.

    Others such as Chief Justice Harlan Fisk Stone, John F. Kennedy and George S. Patton criticized the Numerberg Trials for various reasons. Guess they were secret “nazis” too. Who could have known?

    And most shocking, the man who beat Hitler, Supreme Allied Commander, Dwight D. Eisenhower, and later 34th President of the United States praised Confederate General Robert E. Lee as a great American and kept his picture in the oval office. I had no idea Eisenhower was also a “nazi’. Who could have known this?

  16. “Professor Loretta Ross, who teaches women’s and gender studies, “

    Why is it the looniest of the loonies so frequently are involved in low level scholarship that should disappear from academia. Everything, except the ability to spew propaganda, can be learned by reading books and discussed in general discussion groups. This professor is what one gets when the focus of scholarship is on propaganda.

    She has turned herself into a Nazi and doesn’t even know it.

    1. The real crime about a low-brow like Loretta Ross being given air time, is that she is allowed to eclipse the truly brilliant Black public thinkers and speakers that the Black community has been blessed with. The Black community has had a renaissance of thinkers like Walter Williams, and Thomas Sowell as well as artists like Zora Hurston, who have all been marginalized and mocked and Uncle Tommed when they demonstrate they are independent thinkers and not subscribed to the racist narrative that has been permitted to dominate what is now the Official State Narrative and shoved down our throats by the State/Mainstream Media.

  17. As I have said on this blog before, the hard left in this country is illiberal and essentially totalitarian. While the extreme right is noxious, it does not compare as a threat to the long-term viability of the Constitutional framework. The hard left has been masterful at taking over the key institutions — education and media — to assure the continual churning out of non-thinking robots who can do nothing but spit out the party line. The Republicans have fought the battle for classical liberalism miserably. For example, Republicans, long ago, should have passed legislation mandating real diversity on campuses — the diversity of viewpoints — at the risk of losing federal subsidies.

    1. “Republicans have fought the battle for classical liberalism miserably. For example, Republicans…”

      True. That is the problem with our politicians. They are out for themselves, not the people. I do not see vast support in the Republican Party for classical liberalism, but I do see vast support in the Democrat Party for fascism.

  18. Oh geez, every single poster here ranting and bloviating about rage and left wing hatred and blah, blah, blah. It’s just hilarious.

    Get a grip people. Nothing of the sort of BS you’re griping about is going to happen. Things will be just the same for everyone, except maybe the right wing nut jobs hyperventilating over perceived persecution or “purging” or whatever concoction of fear induced paranoia manifests itself.

    There will always be people whose opinions are outlandish and just plain over the top. The best thing you paranoids and scaredy-cats can do is just ignore it. It’s called the fringe for a reason. Both the left and the right have them. The are way out there because their opinions or thoughts are just crazy stupid or simple rantings.

    1. The fringe? Well, that “fringe” is in no less a power position that the US Congress. AOC is mouthing the same rhetoric about “deprogramming” and she’s calling for funds to carry it out. Ayana Pressley spews hate speech from her Twitter account almost daily. Laugh if you will, but that only shows a disconnect with both history and contemporary political affairs.

      1. giocon1, like I said, you’re hyperventilating over something that will not happen. AOC, like Trump, is just shooting her mouth off.

        Get a grip. You will not be “deprogrammed”….it’s too late for you. (Just kidding). Seriously, just let it go. It’s not going to happen.

    2. ” every single poster here ranting and bloviating about rage and left wing hatred and blah, blah, blah. It’s just hilarious.”

      Paint Chips, those thoughts above are ” just crazy stupid or simple rantings.”

      1. S.Meyer, if you can’t figure it out a statement using context then obviously the problem resides with you. Come on, you can do it.

        1. Paint Chips, I did indeed figure it out and that is why I thought the left was “” just crazy stupid or simple rantings.”

    3. There will always be people whose opinions are outlandish and just plain over the top.

      She’s landed a position at a selective college that likely has about 5 Republicans on its faculty. She has tenure. She will not be rebuked by the college president, the college provost, or more than one member of the faculty. She’s not fringe, she’s the establishment.

      Compare the treatment she gets with the treatment Wm. Jacobson has received at Cornell. Jacobson is a man whose views are temperate and common. He’s an outlaw on his campus and will likely be dismissed from his position.

      1. ArtDeco, “ She’s landed a position at a selective college that likely has about 5 Republicans on its faculty. She has tenure.”

        So what. What she said was still outlandish and over the top. If her employer chooses to punish her then they will. But I suspect that if they do Turley will have do defend her because it would be an attack on her free speech.

        What does party affiliation have to do withthe faculty ? They can’t do anything about it unless her statement was meant as literal intent. Obviously she was just expressing her thoughts on the matter. Her thoughts were on the fringe, that’s not enough to rebuke her at her school. Each school has it’s own standards.

        1. What she said was still outlandish and over the top.

          It’s an acceptable part of ‘the debate’ where she works. Get that through your head.

    4. Get a grip people. Nothing of the sort of BS you’re griping about is going to happen.

      Despite many members of the ruling class telling us they intend to do it?
