Skewed news & rethinking the desirability of a college education

Aggressor professor morphs into victim, claims death threats lodged against him by fascists (political conservatives)

Fresno State University Professor Lars Maischak, who teaches — of all things — American History, a topic he appears not to comprehend, has been in the news recently.

We thought the Fresno Bee might have an update on this pathetic excuse for a lecturer. Instead, the newspaper headlines it’s article Breitbart News singles out Fresno State professor over tweet on Trump, describing Professor Maischak who advocated on his twitter account, “to save American democracy, Trump must hang. The sooner and the higher, the better.”

Maischak identifies himself as “teaching American History with a German accent at Fresno State.” He has a predilection for the words fascist and fascism which he uses liberally throughout his tweets. After he was outed, he used weak excuses to back away from his calls inciting murder of the President of the United States.

The Bee refers to Maischak as a “target,” rather than an insurrectionist. It repeatedly characterizes Breitbart News as “right-wing.”

The fault, you see, lies with Breitbart for calling attention to this anti-American ignoramus. Such is the view of the radicals inhabiting academia and the media today.

On the university’s website alongside its name are the words, “Discover, Diversity, Distinction.”  There was a time, not so long ago, when unity rather than diversity was celebrated. Now hyphenated Americans with questionable commitment to the USA, merit praise.

With Joseph L. Castro at the school’s helm and former Arizona Gov. Janet Napolitano in charge of the entire California university system, it’s not difficult to see that the liberal skew is carefully cultivated and maintained. Castro’s absurd statement following Maischak’s treasonous comments said, “Statements made on his (Maischak‘s)  personal social media accounts are his alone and are not endorsed by nor reflect the position of the University.”

No chastisement.  No talk of firing or even a suspension.  Just a tacit signal that more of the same is OK with Castro.

The University President’s Commission on Human Relations and Equity provides an insight of what matters most in this liberal, liberal arts school. As an example, under a heading  KEY TERMS is Intersectionality: It’s described as “a theory and methodology developed in feminist studies, intersectionality (Crenshaw, 1989) reveals and explains the ways in which identity categories, such as gender, race, sexual orientation, ability and other axes (do they mean axis’) of identity, intersect to produce multiple and varied lived experiences and inequalities.  Intersectionality helps us understand how our multidimensional racialized, gendered, and sexualized social identities shape our experiences of power and oppression.”

Got that? Want to pay thousands to make sure your kids do?

    Another excellent, fact filled post giving the perspective we rarely get. There are times it seems as though I’m a lone voice of what I regard as reason. Then I read Seeing Red AZ and realize conservatives do have a voice.

    The Fresno Bee skews its news exactly as the Arizona Repulsive does.

    Obviously there’s a leftward skew to Fresno Bee report. It’s written by Mexican national Cresencio Rodriguez-Delgado who says he came to the United States at age 5. Dollars to donuts he was brought here by his illegal parents. His bio is two years old, so he is currently a 19-year-old student who has a part time job as a night reporter for the Fresno Bee. That age 5 will give him cover as he applies for DACA status.
    He lists himself as the Editor in Chief of the “Rampage” (Warpath??) a student run school newspaper at Fresno City College. What an interesting name for what should be a source of trustworthy news.

    He got it all wrong assuming Hillary Clinton would be elected, when he wrote “Trump should never be president of the United States.”

    Perhaps Lars should pack up and return to his homeland.
    I have discovered that things are now distinctly diverse and dangerous in Germany and most of Europe.

    The mixing of the races sure has worked out well, most recently in Sweden where another pesky truck decided to kill a bunch of humans. Since it was not noted that the truck was driver-less and being operated by Uber or Google, we must assume that there was a driver who was hell bent on destruction.

    Good to know, though, that the government officials in France have decided to bathe the Eiffel Tower in black lights in remembrance of those killed in the latest attack there in Sweden.

    Back in the good ole U.S. of A., we learn that the State of New York is going to be paying for middle class kids to go to college.
    Maybe it should read that the taxpaying citizens of New York are going to be paying the freight for anyone who wishes to keep a chair warm at a propaganda factory.

    No wonder it was recently reported that New Yorkers are fleeing their home state in record numbers.

    And do you think for one moment that the new additional 12 cents per gallon gasoline tax passed by the CA legislature as a gift to Gov. Jerry Brown will be used for anything useful?
    Maybe it will go into a slush fund for Jerry’s WH run in 2020.
    After all, who’s minding the store?

    We are now in Easter week.
    Yesterday, Palm Sunday, the muslims blew up a couple of Coptic Christian churches during services.
    May God, in his Mercy, keep us safe from all evil.

    Sorry but axes seems to be the plural of ax, axe, and axis. It is pronounced axeez, however.

    Being inundated with skewed news and fake news makes finding the truth no small task. That’s why Breitbart is so well received. It’s also why I keep reading Seeing Red. I know you folks don’t originate the reports, but your spot on commentaries are from a conservative vantage point, which we are rarely exposed to anymore. Even Fox news has mostly become a disappointment, with paid leftist contributors like Juan Williams. Fox’s effort to be “fair and balanced” are worthless in the face of the alphabet networks just spinning liberalism. And hiring McCain’s chubby daughter who is clearly brainless doesn’t warm me to the Fox network. I do appreciate Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity.

    Maybe the reason these government bodies want to pay for young people to go to collage is so that can be inundated in the liberal philosophy. What better way to cover the cost of this propaganda than to have the taxpayers foot the bill for their own demise.
