Prescott College: Liberalism soars to irrational new heights

Smugly mandates student support of illegal invasion

Prescott College, which bills itself as “for the Liberal Arts, the Environment and Social Justice,” takes the “Liberal” handle seriously. The Arizona school is now one of only two U.S. schools to mandate student fees earmarked specifically for illegal alien students. Jesuit-run Loyola University is the other school to take up this absurd program.

Under the heading, Students Approve Fee for College’s Full Scholarship for Undocumented Students, is the statement indicating the school “will implement a $30 student fee for all on-campus students that will go towards the Freedom Education Fund, a scholarship for undocumented students, starting in the 2016-2017 academic year. Prescott College is proud to announce the availability of this scholarship to undocumented students as part of National Institution’s Coming Out Day in support of undocumented students, an annual event hosted by United We Dream.”

There is an undeniable interaction between the school’s leftward lurch and its fascination with the word “undocumented” which is used four times in the first sentence. SRAZ’s still popular 2008 post titled, “Lingo,” addresses that term under Number 3 on the list.

Prior to becoming president of Prescott College in 2014 John Flicker was president of the National Audubon Society for 15 years. That must have been where he honed the Arizona school’s for-the-birds skill set.

Flicker says, “I am proud that our students take on the role of scholar activists. Their passion around this issue really motivated our part to make up the difference between what the fee will provide for and the full cost to attend one of our programs. We’re committed to broaden access to higher education for a diverse group of students and mobilize our resources towards social justice.”

Prescott College, typical of today’s leftist bastions of education run by committed educrats, has its priorities skewed. Imagine if it thought as highly of American citizens desirous of furthering their education rather than elevating foreign national lawbreakers as worthy recipients of special status and funding. Scroll through the Open Secrets website, which reveals the multimillions of dollars donated to leftist causes and politicians by teachers unions.

    Another college to add to the ever growing list of where not to send my kids. Thanks, SRAZ. Without reading this I would have had no idea that the once conservative town of Prescott had been taken invaded by such far out, left wing zealots.

    Maybe Flicker and his dreamers can hitch a ride with Bernie Sanders next week. Bernie is supposedly scheduled to meet with the Pope in Rome for an economic and environmental summit.
    And both Sanders and Francis are so brilliantly qualified!
    If only Sean Penn were available, all problems could be solved within days.

    The Pope must have viewed that recently released video, made years ago, where Bernie is waxing poetic about the beauty of seeing people standing in breadlines in Communist nations.

    The ivory tower dwellers, who have no idea how the real world operates, are always quick to criticize and advise us.

    • Matt DeGennaro says:

      Bernie is a self described Socialist, who is a newly arrived democrat, for the sake of political expediency.
      Francis is a committed Communist, leading a flock of sheeple. He has no commitment to Catholicism, but is bonded to ruinous far left political extremism that is responsible for repressing and killing millions.

      • Dennis O'Brien says:

        Benedict was a pope. Francis is a disgraceful poser. It would be fascinating to know the truth behind his forced “retirement” ….. the first such move in 600 years. One day he was the infallible leader of the world’s Catholics, and the next he is secreted off and not heard from again. I’ don’t believe it was solely due to deteriorating health. Most popes are elderly when selected and often have infimaties. His removal came right on the heels of the exposure of the pervasive financial deceit and rampant pedophile scandals. I think he knew too much and was too honorable to be trusted.

    I went on the Loyola website and under Student Diversity and Multicultural Affairs, under “Programs” I clicked on LGBTQIA Initiatives and found the following:
    (Partial description)
    We are excited for you to join our Rambler proud community!
    •Q-Initiatives
    •Safe Space Workshops
    •LGBTQIA Resources
    •LGBTQIA Student Organizations
    •Unisex Restroom Locations
    •Q-Summit 2016

    Then there’s Ramblers Analyzing Whiteness:

    The purpose of R.A.W. is to create a closed space on campus for self-identified White students to engage in dialogue about their own racial identity. Through a series of six workshops, students who self-identify as White will delve into conversation, activities and reflection on what it means to be White. Aimed to further understanding, development, and competence, R.A.W. will allow White students to begin the journey of operating in solidarity with others and their privilege.

    The Catholic religion has drastically changed since I was baptized as an infant. The Jesuits are Leftists, almost to the point of no religion. Pope Francis is a Jesuit and preaches leftwing craziness. He talks about getting along with gay people & divorced people and climate change.

    Prescott College students are “scholar activists” and through “social justice” are paying for illegal aliens, who broke the law, to take a citizen’s spot in getting an education. What planet am I on.

      One thing’s for sure, Conservative Since Birth, “We’re not in Kansas,anymore,” (as Dorothy said to her dog Toto in The WIzard of Oz.) We’re also not in idyllic Mayberry. Prescott has obviously changed from the folksy, lovely town I remember from my days as a camp counselor. What a shame.

      • Doc says:

        If you only knew. However, this doesn’t surprise me 1 bit. For years, prescott college (lack of capitols belonging to them, not me) has been full of dread-lock wearing boys & girls who weren’t taught how to use soap & a razor.

        And the local “Daily Courier” newspaper isn’t fit to line my cat’s litter box…& I’ve told them so. I did an interview with them once regarding some possible motorcycle legislation. They, in true lame-stream media fashion, twisted my words to make it sound like I was in favor of the legislation when in fact, I was not. It’s just as bad, maybe worse than the AZ repulsive.

        Lastly, Yavapai Co was only 1 of 2 counties to NOT censure mcTraitor. This once Bastion of Conservatism is now being slowly converted to a bunch of tree hugging socialists.

  4. Maggie says:

    President Flicker says he’s proud of the student activists taking on this role. Really? In the real world this is known as aiding and abetting criminal behavior. Flicker lives in an alternative universe if he’s unaware America is being invaded by those who access taxpayer funded generous benefits while coming here illegally. We have a hospitable legal system for actual immigrants. These people don’t fit that description.

  5. Frankly Speaking says:

    The lunatics are running the asylum — now known as public education. This is outrageous. If I had kids enrolled in Prescott College, they’d be out so fast their heads would be spinning!

  6. VINOAZ says:

    Sadly the Jesuits are no longer what they once were. Liberalism poisons most everything it touches. As an alumnus, I am saddened and embarrassed. I stopped donating years ago. Hillsdale gets my contribution for real education. We are in an era of the worst. Worst pope in several hundred years. Worst president ever, who is also the worst person in American history. He may challenge Carter for worst former president. And don’t forget the Democrat candidates. How can a sane person vote for either? Liberalism is truly a mental and moral disorder.

  7. Conservative Since Birth says:

    A four-year-old girl in Colorado has been booted from preschool after her mother expressed concern over diversity teaching in the classroom that included books on homosexuality and gender identity.

    The Communists are getting them younger and younger. It’s an outrage and like Prescott College, they’re using students as prey for their activism. Warn your kids about this marching army of Godless fascists.

  8. Hunter says:

    How can a college have undocumented students on campus? How do they get their scholarship with no documentation? How do they get class schedules, grades, transcripts, and diplomas?

    I’ll bet if people just started showing up for classes without student ID cards and demanded grades whether or not they were registered for the class, Prescott college would kick those truly undocumented students off its campus. They would be referred to as trespassers and not undocumented students.

    Those scholarship students are certainly documented. They are also, by definition of the scholarship program, illegal aliens who should be deported.

    When institutions are openly contemptuous of the law, either the law must change to conform to practice or the institutions must be brought into compliance with the law. Otherwise, the very notion of law is held in contempt which results in anarchy where the people with the biggest political or literal clubs rule by fiat instead of by laws that apply to everyone.

    I think the immigration laws are more than reasonable for immigrants. We need to have them enforced. Illegal aliens should be deported and their enablers punished. Those who openly defy the law to make their illegal alien point should be aggressively punished and sentenced to make the appropriate counter point. Maintaining rule of law is sufficient justification for raiding the college and rounding up the criminals without even considering other issues related to illegal alien presence in this country which provide additional justification. It won’t happen under Obama, but it needs to start happening for us to maintain the rule of law in our country which is essential to freedom. We need a Republican president (who is not Kasich or any other open borders Chamber of Commerce lackey) to get this done.
