    Trinity finally made a move on Professor Williams and to me it is really a bad compromise. Now Trinity may decide to let him whither and then axe him but for now they put him on leave through the Fall semester. He is whining and so are some fellow professor collectives who claim the "right wing" is behind all of this. Williams said last night that "the college has made no attempt to support my academic freedom of speech. It's a violation of my academic freedom as well as my free speech as a citizen of the United States."
    I am with you on your free speech jerk off but in the privacy of your unemployed state of being. No way in hell should your violent rhetoric poison the halls of a college institution.
    Trinity College is an older school founded by Protestants. I doubt this is the case today and it is a shame it isn't but I suspect most religious institutions required students to take religious classes every semester as part of the core liberal arts program thus giving students the best of education that encompasses the mind and the spiritual nature of humanity. At the end of the day as human beings the spiritual is the most important thing in life. I should know. Growing up during my school years I attended Church six times a week and was a primary reader of the New Testament during mass along with being an Alter Boy. And we often had Priests over at the house and they were all very friendly. The schools were strict and even though I was a top student through 8th grade I was a bit of a brat so on occasion I would get the giant wooden paddle to my ass or the ruler across my knuckles. But the worst part was detention where you had to write the same thing over and over. I used to say life can't get worse than this until you end up with a repetitious mundane job and think yes this is worse than detention. Ha.
    Then High School came and there I was dealing with this new concept called "girls" and my grades started to slip. Here I am sitting in Algebra class surrounded by cute girls sitting next to me wearing short uniform skirts and knee high socks and I had one thing on my mind and rest assured it was not algebra. Ha. But I managed my way through if (barely) and was on my way to nowhere in particular.
    But the point is these schools need to get back to the basics and it is quite the irony that a hate filled teacher at a so called religious school has been allowed to push his garbage on students. I am no fan of the computer revolution and get upset every time I notice whether at the grocery store or movie theater or bank etc.. people have been replaced by automation. And don't get me started on the "robot revolution" that the science nerds are all juiced up about. At the end of the day since the computer boom people in my mind are more miserable than ever and it has obviously killed off tons of jobs and made life worse not better. Bookkeeper--what's that?
    So now more than ever schools, and Trinity is an admired and expensive Liberal Arts school, should require students to be exposed to a more rigorous classical education as opposed to this hip sociology crap that passes as education these days. And young people need a whopping dose of morality as well and I am afraid that is too often missing in higher education these days.
    This Professor will haunt Trinity and until they get rid of his sorry ass they will have to deal with the negative fallout and like Missouri could face a decline in admissions and prestige.
    One more thing worth noting. Tucker Carlson graduated from Trinity with a BA in History. He is a good representative of how a proper liberal arts degree can be a truly positive thing.

    Protesters like to shout out, but can't say why they are there.

    Predictably academia caved in and looks like white hater Professor Williams will be able to teach again. In general colleges have more "left leaning" teachers but Williams and his ilk represent a new kind of radicalism which is the antitheses of classical studies than have been the backbone of great societies through history. This is summed up in a brilliant letter to The Hartford Courant by a former Yale grad.

    Black Privilege

    Black privilege is being able to take pride in your race without fear of persecution.

    Black privilege is when people assume you are poor because of racism, not because you’re lazy.

    Black privilege is being wealthy without people assuming you wealth was all handed to you or that you exploited others.

    Black privilege is being able to commit violent crimes against another race without people assuming you are racist.

    Black privilege is being given ‘affirmative action’ which advantages you in jobs and colleges based on your skin tone.

    Black privilege is having the media cover up your race in the event of a black flash mob or gruesome murder

    Black privilege is being able to make insensitive comments about other races and not being called out on it

    Black privilege is when people assume that the police pulled you over because of racism.

    Black privilege is being able to blame your shortcoming on racism.

    Black privilege is when people consider you to be superior at sports or ‘better in bed’ without it being racist.

    Black privilege is not having to be fearful of offending minorities.

    Black privilege is having the establishment lie to cover up problems in your community or protect you from criticism.

    Black privilege is when you can be over-represented in a certain field without people trying to amend it

    Black privilege is having the government pander to your interests in order to ‘get the black vote’

    Black privilege is having Hollywood always present you in a positive light

    No Prison for Man Who Scrawled Anti-White, Racist Abuse on Neighbour’s Door, Made Death Threats

    http://www.breitbart.com/london/201...-abuse-on-neighbours-door-made-death-threats/

    A man who scrawled anti-white, racist abuse on his neighbour’s door and threatened to kill a woman with a knife has escaped prison after the judge heard he was an “absolute delight” and his actions were “certainly not representative”.

    Thirty-year-old Kamran Akhtar — previously convicted for screaming “I hate you white people” at police constables who came to arrest him in a criminal damage case — had scrawled messages “peppered with expletives” on his own door and his neighbour’s door, both of which referred to the fact she was white.

    P1$$ on that mess! If the "law" won't do its job & serve (justice) and protect...then others need to. If someone threatens your life, that warrants a certain (serious) response...& it's not (always) running to the law (who won't always do its job...case in point).
