NAU educrat docks student’s grade for use of “Mankind”

Propagandizing alive and well at Northern Arizona University

Today is April Fools’ Day, so it’s fitting that we draw attention to Dr. Anne Scott, a Northern Arizona University professor.  Scott, 59, is so caught up in leftist political correctness that she finds the word “mankind” unacceptable. So unacceptable, in fact, that she docked an English major NAU student a grade point for using it.

Student Cailin Jeffers is giving the irrational action the exposure it deserves, saying “In one of these examples she stated that we could not use the word ‘mankind.’ Instead, we should use ‘humankind.’ I thought this was absurd, and I wasn’t sure if she was serious.”

To parents contemplating sending your kids to this bastion of higher learning, check out the 2016 – 2017 undergrad tuition and fee schedule. Can you possibly think you’re getting the best bang for your buck here, when their intent is to propagandize rather than educate?

Last year, Princeton University sent out this memo informing faculty and staff that they must stop using the word “man” and “other male-leaning language.’ Instead they are to substitute preferable, gender-neutral terminology that must now be used in official school documents.

As reported in Campus Reform, “Multiple professors at Washington State University have explicitly told students their grades will suffer if they use terms such as ‘illegal alien,’ ‘male,’ and ‘female,’ or if they fail to ‘defer’ to non-white students” who don’t have the benefit of ‘white privilege.’

Fortunately, Seeing Red AZ bows to no such constraints, since we believe accuracy matters. Illegal aliens are not immigrants, They are also not undocumented, since they often carry plenty of documentation, counterfeit, stolen or belonging to children.

The punishment for repeatedly using the banned words, a Washington State instructor warns, includes “but [is] not limited to removal from the class without attendance or participation points, failure of the assignment, and— in extreme cases— failure for the semester.”

Brainwashing reaches soaring new heights when it becomes a threat tied to dire consequences.

    What a bind today’s parents are in. They want to provide the path to success for their children, and that most often includes a degree. Yet in order to give them the opportunity for that necessary document that attests to their education and enables them to have a professional career, parents have had to sell their kids minds to liberals who are in control of much of higher education.

    Why do you think socialist Bernie Sanders had so many young supporters? They were indoctrinated within the “ivy covered walls.”
    I saw an interview video during the 2016 campaign done on a university campus. The majority of those on camera said they preferred communism to our liberty and representative republic. Obviously they have no understanding of the repression that communism represents.

      Barack Hussein Obamao believed that as well. This is Obamao telling an audience of Argentinian youths there really was not a big difference between capitalism, socialism and communism — Just pick something that works. Foolish Americans elected him TWICE.

    The real world – many countries are teaching their children & adults how to fight to survive or to prepare for war. Teaching them how to use weapons, build shelters, build food supplies, etc.
    In the US many universities, colleges and yes parents are teaching their kids to fear weapons, hide and cowar in the face of attack or even different opinions, triggering (?), the list goes on and on. Then someday the snowflakes will awake and sadly it may be prior to their death at the hands of a person who lives in reality.

      As a former Boy Scout (before the days of political correctness that punished scouts for not warming to homosexual leaders), I believe in being prepared. We have plenty of canned and freeze dried food and a decent supply of water, matches, batteries, first aid, and other necessities. Still they would only suffice for a limited time. If there was no running water our fruit trees and garden would die. Without electricity, our entire way of life would dramatically change. Parents would be unable to contact their children or each other. The prospects of such events whether through attack or deterioration of our weakened grid system, are unimaginable. All we can do is try to be as wise as we can.

      However, none of this addressed American’s education system which was taken over by leftwing unions decades ago. Teachers spend more time with the upcoming generations of voters than their parents do. We keep hearing the old canard that teachers are underpaid. Pure BS. They work less than 9 full months a year. We are always being hit with tax increases and bond elections that include pay raises for them. Meanwhile, they are brainwashing their students…our kids… to be compliant liberals.

      In the most recent political cycle, the “underpaid teachers” members of the National Education Association ponied up millions for liberal causes and candidates. These numbers are from Open Secrets/Follow the Money:
           FOR Democrats: $1,964,633
           AGAINST Democrats: $0
           FOR Republicans: $268
           AGAINST Republicans: $3,713,211
      The majority of their large force of lobbyists have previously held Government jobs.

    Mankind is under attack by the feminists.
    (Gee, I thought they were all about “I am woman, see me roar. . .”

    With the breakdown of the American family coinciding with women working outside the home and falling for the daycare crap pushed by communists, haven’t they figured out how to cope in this world?

    Now they are after Bill O’Reilly.
    Because getting rid of Roger Ailes was just so damned easy.
    If you read the story (link posted below), none of those females seem to be oppressed or down-trodden.

    Paging Megyn Kelly. (who had no problem posing in her beach gear in Hawaii last week)

    Meanwhile, a glimmer of good news.
    Feminist attorney who never lets facts get in her way, Gloria Alred, is allegedly being investigated by the California Bar for some type of “misconduct”. They’d better watch out. If there’s as few as just ONE MAN on that review board, the CA Bar will find itself being sued by Gloria All Red.

      Anne Scott was probably hanging out stoned in the environs of Haight Ashbury sorry she missed the heyday and hoping for a revival. Little did she know it would flourish in academia and she could be the Alan Ginsberg of Flagstaff, AZ.
