Canvassing the campus of George Washington University, Campus Reform found that the vast majority of college students believe that the nation-wide rioting and looting being carried out by black lives matter agitators is ‘justified’.
“In my opinion, it definitely can be justified given that’s the only way we can get our message out there,” one student commented.
“I’m in support of the riots personally, whatever you need to do to be heard,” another added.
Others said riots are “inevitable,” claiming that “if change is gonna come there’s gonna be some violence.”
Several universities in the US have set up systems so students can report on each other if they see anyone breaking the Covid ‘rules’.
Campus Reform notes that universities in Miami, Texas, and New Orleans have all encouraged students to play campus stasi when it comes to the Covid guidelines.
Yale has also got in on the act with a hotline, along with The University of North Georgia, whose plea for students to police each other prompted the Southeastern Legal Foundation to pen a letter warning that the system may violate students’ privacy and freedom of speech.
“Colleges have a duty to protect student health and safety, especially during uncertain times like these. However, even in unprecedented times, students’ First Amendment rights remain unchanged. That means colleges and universities cannot engage in viewpoint or content-based discrimination, cannot enact vague and overbroad policies, and cannot chill student expression,” the letter urges.
An associate professor at Converse College has publicly refused to take university-sponsored diversity and anti-bias training and wrote that the school’s administration intended to fire him as a result.
The school told Campus Reform that the professor is still employed – for now.
Converse College in South Carolina is undergoing several changes on campus. Currently, the institution is a private women’s college but will transition to becoming a co-ed university in fall 2021. The college will also change its name to Converse University in July 2021 to reflect the existence of its graduate program. As part of the reformation, it will institute new “required” anti-bias and diversity training for faculty.
Converse President Krista Newkirk sent a notice to faculty in June instructing them to complete mandatory diversity and anti-bias training. Faculty were instructed to complete the “required” training by 5 p.m. Monday, August 3.
Staff members were instructed in March to complete the training, while faculty members were given the assignment in June.

Cabot Phillips, the media director for Campus Reform and former Marco Rubio stooge, decreed that conservatives must stop bickering about big tech systematically censoring prominent voices and submit themselves to the nearest social media gulag.
Over the course of several tweets, Phillips told conservatives that it is unbecoming to complain about massive social media giants appearing to collude in order to ban effective conservative voices during the aftermath of Facebook and Instagram’s decision to ban Alex Jones, Paul Joseph Watson, Laura Loomer, and Milo Yiannopoulos from their platforms.
Big League Politics
A University of Georgia professor was forced to apologize after congratulating a friend who happens to be a Republican candidate for governor, according to Campus Reform.
Davis, dean of the Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communication at UGA, was a classmate of Georgia’s GOP gubernatorial candidate Brian Kemp, and called him a “nice guy,” and “kind to a fault” in a congratulatory tweet following Kemp’s primary win last week.
“I went to high school with GOP guv candidate @BrianKempGA. We played YMCA ball from childhood. Politics be damned. He’s a nice guy, always was. Kind to a fault. He’s a friend, always has been, and will be when we’re old(er) and grey(er). That’s how this should work, people,” Davis tweeted last week.
This year, Campus Reform has reported how college campuses around the country have been forced to modify various holiday celebrations due to concerns over political correctness.
Whether it was warning students of cultural appropriation on Halloween, or restricting Christmas celebrations for fear of offending non-Christians on campus, universities have become increasingly fearful of allowing “offensive” holiday celebrations.
But what about a seemingly harmless, non- (or at best quasi-) religious holiday like Valentine’s Day? While most universities have yet to take action against the day, would students be willing to outlaw it if they felt their peers were offended by the celebration?
A liberal journalist and podcaster declared in a Twitter exchange Wednesday night that professors should drown conservative students instead of just grading them harshly.
Jesse Farrar, a former contributor for Deadspin and Vice, made the comment in response to a tweet from conservative activist Charlie Kirk calling attention to the anti-conservative bias in college classrooms.
“I get countless of messages from students who say professors are lowering their grades & penalizing them for being conservative,” Kirk remarked in his original tweet.
“Leftists dominating higher education represent a grave threat to our country & culture, he added. “Conservative students shouldn’t be targeted for disagreeing.”
Farrar took issue with Kirk’s position, facetiously tweeting that “it’s not right” for professors to grade conservative students harshly because they “should hold the conservative students[‘] heads under water until they stop breathing, instead.”
A San Jose State University biology professor recently accused a Texas state legislator of being “bigoted” for tweeting that there are only two genders.
“In case you forgot how many genders there are,” Republican State Representative Briscoe Caint weeted on December 21, attaching a picture of the XX and XY chromosomes.
Describing herself as a geneticist, Rachael French replied to the tweet with an extended harangue in which she impugned Cain’s motives and derided his understanding of biology.
“Hey geneticist here. You’ve disingenuously and for bigoted purposes oversimplified a complex phenomenon,” she wrote. “A few notes: 1) Sex and gender aren’t the same thing. 2) Chromosomes don’t determine sex.”
Texas State University’s student newspaper published an op-ed Tuesday telling “white people” that “your DNA is an abomination.”
“When I think of all the white people I’ve ever encountered—whether they’ve been professors, peers, lovers, friends, police officers, et cetera—there is perhaps only a dozen I would consider ‘decent,’” student columnist Rudy Martinez begins the op-ed, which The University Star has not posted on its website.
