Nightmare at Oberlin

Original Article

Posted By: MissMolly, 7/5/2020 4:36:19 AM

Things haven’t gone well for Oberlin College in court recently. First, it was found liable for defaming Gibson’s Bakery. After the bakery’s owner tried to stop a black student from shoplifting, the Oberlin student senate condemned the bakery as racist and called for a boycott of its products, which Oberlin stopped purchasing for a time. A jury awarded the Gibson family $44 million in damages (reduced to $33 million by operation of Ohio law). The case is on appeal to the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals. Now, the Sixth Circuit has ruled that a male student may proceed with a claim of sex discrimination against Oberlin for railroading him

I really would laugh if all this crap ended with Oberlin closing its doors, or better, sold to someone who would turn it into a CONSERVATIVE institution of higher learning.

Oberlin will probably ask the President (or Congress will figure out a way) to bail them out. A racist, discriminating, leftist college, imagine that.

Oberlin will find no sympathy from me, they have earned every bad thing that happens to them. Maybe they will inspire other colleges to hire competent administrators instead of the idiotic dreck that so many schools seem to be saddled with.

Oberlin’s chickens are coming home to roost and if there is any justice they will go belly up. The college is a menace to students and the community in which it sits. Imagine paying $60K/year to send your child to what amounts to a summer/re-education camp in the hope that they get what amounts to a glorified desk job in an air-conditioned building after they graduate.

This is far beyond Oberlin. Under dems, they instituted absurd anti male standards that made it possible to kangaroo court accused men through the school's Title IX process that sidesteps real law and all the components that protect the accused including assumption of innocence, rules of evidence, trial by jury, and much more. They did this in response to a "rape crisis" on college campuses. Of course, that turned out to be a fake crisis but by then, the Title IX rules had been warped to support the Left's Star Chambers. This exemplifies how the Left operates; a fake crisis and a warped solution that solves nothing but advances the Left's agenda. I shed no tears over Oberlin's problems. They are deserving to lose again, big time. Hopefully such losses will add up at other colleges as well and the whole Title IX process will be majorly revamped or scrapped.

Such accusations of criminal behavior are matters for the police. They should not be the province of a leftist kangaroo court.

Would you be shocked to learn that a big hunk of the citizenry is absolutely convinced that Donald Trump will not only be re-elected but re-elected in a landslide? It’s true, and it’s not an ironic or performative belief, but rather one drawn from a perspective that the mainstream media utterly ignores. This means you probably have no idea it even exists, and that could lead to an unpleasant surprise in November. Well, unpleasant for you. Remember that apocryphal anecdote about how Pauline Kael moaned that she did not know anyone voting for Dick Nixon? If you’re here, then that’s very likely you.

In Atlanta this weekend, an 8-year-old girl was shot and killed while riding in a vehicle with her mother. The driver was trying to enter a parking lot where a group of people had illegally placed barricades. Someone in the group reportedly opened fire. Elsewhere in Minneapolis, a pregnant woman was shot while in her car. Doctors were able to deliver and save her child, but the woman died shortly thereafter. And in Seattle, where a teenage boy died last week, another young woman was killed after a car drove into a group of protesters on a closed highway.

Federal authorities provided minimal detail when the Daily Caller News Foundation questioned why it took so long for convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein’s alleged cohort Ghislaine Maxwell to be arrested. A grand jury indicted Maxwell on charges of conspiracy to entice minors to engage in illegal sex acts, conspiracy to transport minors for illegal sex acts, transportation of a minor to engage in illegal sex acts, and perjury. She was arrested at 8:30 am Thursday morning in Bradford, New Hampshire, temporarily held in Merrimack County Jail and then transferred to a New York prison Monday.
America Held Hostage 2 replies

Reading today’s national media is like staring down a bottomless pit. Le vertige des grandes profondeurs, the French call is. The vertigo from looking down a deep hole. And just when you thought we had reached bottom, there’s deeper level to the madness. It seems incomprehensible, and yet there’s a simple explanation. America is being held hostage. We began by re-fighting the Civil War. Until recently we had left that behind us, and non-racist white southerners were permitted to retain some measure of dignity, in the memory of their battlefield heroes. But it was never about the Confederate statues, and the proof is that we quickly moved

Let us pause for a moment and consider the Primary Model, a political forecasting method which predicts the ultimate outcome of White House races on voting patterns from presidential primaries. The model has a laudable track record. Established in 1996 by Stony Brook University political science professor Helmut Norpoth, the Primary Model correctly picked the victors in multiple presidential elections — including the last one. On March 7, 2016, it predicted then-candidate Donald Trump had an 87% chance of defeating Hillary Clinton. Will the president also vanquish Democratic nominee Joseph R. Biden?

Bill Cosby is invoking the recent unrest and move for racial inequality in the appeal of his sexual assault conviction. The disgraced actor and comedian gave a testimony in 2005, in which he admitted that he gave Quaaludes to young women he wanted to have sex with, an admission that ultimately spurred the release of case files in 2015 to The Associated Press and aided in giving credibility to the #MeToo movement. For his conduct, which was described by U.S. District Judge Eduardo Robreno in June 2015 as “perhaps criminal,”

A 13-year-old California girl died tragically after she and her three siblings became the victims of a violent carjacking, authorities said. Isabella Cortes was killed Sunday afternoon in Pico Rivera, Calif., they said. The carjacking involved a Toyota minivan belonging to her parents. The vehicle was stolen as Isabella and her siblings, a girl, 18, and boys, 11 and 8, were sitting in the vehicle waiting for their parents to pick up food from a restaurant, according to reports. Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Office identified the carjacking suspect as Jose Aguilar, 26. Deputies said the minivan's engine and air conditioning were running when Aguilar tried to steal it.

1. Why now? Maxwell was arrested at her remote estate in Bedford, New Hampshire eleven months after Jeffrey Epstein’s death in a New York police cell. The house was purchased for $1 million in cash through a shell company in December 2019. In the same month, Reuters reported that Maxwell was a target in the FBI’s investigation of people who ‘facilitated’ Epstein’s sexual crimes. Meanwhile, her location became the subject of international speculation. It now appears that the FBI knew exactly where she was. On Thursday, the FBI’s New York Assistant Director, William Sweeney admitted that ‘an eye was being kept and information was being collected’ for months:

The American Academy of Pediatrics has released a needed opinion that is strongly in favor of getting children back to school this fall. It’s just what the nation needs right now in times that seem anything but normal. “The AAP,” the group’s statement reads, “strongly advocates that all policy considerations for the coming school year should start with a goal of having students physically present in school.“ “Schools are fundamental to child and adolescent development and well-being,” AAP’s statement points out. They “provide our children and adolescents with academic instruction, social and emotional skills, safety, reliable nutrition, physical/speech and mental health therapy, and opportunities for physical activity, among other benefits.”

Right now, we are seeing the right to free speech demolished in front of our very eyes. You cannot say one word against Black Lives Matter, a totally mixed up, wacko entity, without being fired from whatever academic or government or media or business job you had. It doesn’t matter that BLM says nothing against the real killers of blacks — gangs and abortionists.

Since the police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis on May 25, crowds demanding racial justice have surged into public spaces across the country and throughout the world—with solidarity actions springing up in South Korea and South Africa, Argentina and Australia. Domestically, demonstrations have materialized not only in major cities, but also in small-town America, including places with deeply conservative populations. As several political scientists noted in The Washington Post, "The United States rarely has protests in this combination of size, intensity and frequency; it usually has big protests or sustained protests, but not both." When will the protests end? And what will it mean when they do?

Prince Harry today faced criticism after he appeared to take a swipe at the British Empire by saying the history of the Commonwealth 'must be acknowledged', even if it's 'uncomfortable'. The Duke of Sussex, 35, made the comment as he joined wife Meghan Markle, 38, for a video call with young leaders from the Queen's Commonwealth Trust last week that was made public today. As part of the discussion on 'justice and equal rights', Harry said the Commonwealth needs to follow others who have 'acknowledged the past' and are 'trying to right their wrongs', and also admitted to having his own 'unconscious bias'.

CNN has determined that “master bedroom” carries racist connotations, as do several other commonly used terms and phrases, including “blacklist,” “cakewalk,” and the “peanut gallery.” The English language is fraught with words and phrases that carry racist connotations, (Snip) both of whom presented the problematic terms in a piece published Monday. Many of the phrases used are “so entrenched that Americans don’t think twice about using them,”(Snip) are directly rooted in the nation’s history with chattel slavery. Others now evoke racist notions about Black people,” they wrote, concluding that America’s “reckoning with systemic racism” is “forcing a more critical look at the language we use.”

The tweet comes after a politically charged Fourth of July weekend as the country works to manage a new surge in COVID-19 cases and tries to emerge from weeks of tense protests that have resulted in a widening divide between Democrats and Republicans. Biden’s tweet did not specify what exactly he means by transforming the country. His critics from the left have expressed concern that he served in the upper echelon of government for over 40 years

Roslik believes they’re symptomatic of an uptick in open drug use and sex trafficking — something she says is tied to an encampment of people who started gathering in the park last month. “If you sit here long enough, you’ll start
