University of Colorado Boulder Political Correctness … Tells Students Not to Wear Offensive Costumes including Cowboys, Indians or White Trash for Halloween
Good grief, are you kidding me … exactly how is it offensive to dress up like a cowboy or Indian?
The University of Colorado at Boulder is warning students not to dress up in Halloween costumes that are “offensive” and might make some people feel uncomfortable. UNREAL. The PC nonsense has now provided a war on Halloween. Offensive? What is offensive is the narrow-mindedness of the liberal hierarchy at CU and the lack of any sense of humor. You can’t have party themes or dress up like cowboys, Indians, white trash, ghetto or hillbillies. Nor themes of crime or sex work. Good grief! What ever happened to people just having fun and be able to laugh? Let’s face it, there is always some one that will be offended by something. Especially in this day and age of “weeniness.” Just curious, how do you know you are not offending witches, goblins, ghosts, vampires and other ghouls by the costumes you wear, HMM?
I am guessing if they dress up like Barack Obama in an unflattering way that it will be grounds for dismissal.
Costumes you will not see at CU this Halloween for a multitude of reasons …
Nor This …
University students in America have been told not to wear “offensive” halloween costumes including cowboys, indians and anything involving a sombrero.
Students at the University of Colorado Boulder have also been told to avoid “white trash” costumes and anything that portrays a particular culture as “over-sexualised”- which the university says includes dressing up as a geisha or a “squaw” (indigenous woman).
They are also asked not to host parties with offensive themes including those with “ghetto” or “hillbilly” themes or those associated with “crime or sex work.”
In the letter sent by a university official students are asked to consider the impact that their costumes could have.
Christina Gonzales, the dean of students, wrote: “Making the choice to dress up as someone from another culture, either with the intention of being humorous or without the intention of being disrespectful, can lead to inaccurate and hurtful portrayals of other people’s cultures.
I wonder if the University of Colorado officials think its ok for students to dress up like Conservatives and have anti-Tea Party themes?
BTW, get a life and a sense of humor.
Because Islam is a religion of Peace, so they say …
Islamic terrorists attacked the Yobe State College of Agriculture in Gujba, Nigeria and have killed as many as 50 students. As reported by the BBC, students shot dead as they slept. Nigeria State Police Commissioner Sanusi Rufai said that he suspected that the terrorist group Boko Haram was behind the attack.
Islamic terrorists dressed in Nigerian military uniforms assaulted a college inside the country Sunday, gunning down dozens of students as they slept in their dorms and shot others trying to flee, witnesses say.
“They started gathering students into groups outside, then they opened fire and killed one group and then moved onto the next group and killed them. It was so terrible,” one surviving student, who would only give his first name of Idris, told Reuters.
As many as 50 students may have been killed in the attack, which began at about 1 a.m. in rural Gujba, Provost Molima Idi Mato of Yobe State College of Agriculture, told The Associated Press.
“They attacked our students while they were sleeping in their hostels, they opened fire at them,” he said. The extremists also torched classrooms.
There were no security forces stationed at the college despite government assurances, said Mato. The state commission for education, Mohammmed Lamin, called a news conference two weeks ago urging all schools to reopen and promising protection from soldiers and police.
Most schools in the area closed after militants on July 6 killed 29 pupils and a teacher, burning some alive in their hostels, at Mamudo outside Damaturu.
Northeastern Nigeria is in a military state of emergency against an Islamic uprising prosecuted by Boko Haram militants who have killed more than 1,700 people since 2010 in their quest for an Islamic state. Boko Haram means Western education is forbidden.
Michigan State University Prof. William Penn Suspended from Teaching After Caught on Video Going on an Anti-Republican Tirade During Literature Class
More attempted liberal indoctrination at institutes of higher education …
After the below VIDEO going viral, Michigan State University was forced to suspend Prof. William Penn from teaching the rest of the semester. His rant against the GOP and his anti-Republican tirade was actually on the first day of class. Imagine what this class would have been after that? However, the even more amazing part of this was that this was not a political science class, it was a literature one. During the video, released by Campus Reform early this week, Penn expressing his political views saying that Republicans were “cheap” and “raped” the country. NICE.
Question: How often must this type of nonsense go on in colleges all across America but is never caught on video?
Michigan State University (MSU) administrators have suspended Prof. William Penn from teaching for the remainder of the semester, after he was caught on video going on an anti-Republican tirade on the very first day of his literature class.
Although Penn will not teach again this year, the school will continue to pay his salary, which is $146,510 according to MSU’s official website, a spokesman for the university told Campus Reform on Thursday evening.
In an email to students Thursday morning, Dean Karen Wurst of the College of Arts & Letters, cited his “inappropriate, disrespectful and offensive” comments.
“On Aug. 29, during your Literatures, Cultures, Identities course, Professor William Penn made comments he has acknowledged were inappropriate, disrespectful and offensive and may have negatively affected the learning environment,” she wrote. “Once MSU was made aware of the situation the Office of the Provost immediately began a review.”
“As a result, Penn’s duties have been reassigned, and he will not be teaching this semester,” she added. “A new instructor is being assigned to your course.”
So does this professor get fired for his actions? Not at all. As reported at The Daily Caller, The professor who called Republicans racists and rapists may have been relieved of his teaching duties for the rest of the semester, but he will still be paid in full by Michigan State University.
Campus Reform learned from an MSU spokesperson on Thursday that creative writing professor William Penn’s would still receive his annual salary of $146,510.
“His employment status has not changed; his teaching duties have been reassigned,” wrote Josiah Ryan, editor in chief of Campus Reform, in an email to The Daily Caller.
The Daily Caller is also reporting that the hate-filled professor also attached Christians and athletes. Wow, what a positive influence on the student body. And this guy had a teaching job how?
An eye-witness account from a student in the class revealed previously unreported details of Penn’s rant. According to sophomore Caroline Freeman, Penn also attacked Christians and athletes.
“He was talking about how Christians are dumb and don’t know what what they’re talking about and that they’re all blind followers,” said Freeman in a statement to MLive. “He was just tearing down a whole institution of belief, and it had nothing to do with class.”
He then turned on athletes.
“He said athletes were wasting their time trying to throw a ball in a hoop and how we glorify them for no reason,” she said. “He was calling people bad for playing football.”
Drunk University of Iowa Student Samantha Goudie Blows an Incredible #.341 Breathalyzer Test & Tweets to Tell About It
And I am sure her parents are so proud …
22 year old University of Iowa coed Samantha Goudie had quite the Saturday night. Goudie managed to get arrested for public intoxication at Kinnick Stadium after running out on to the field during her school’s 30-27 loss to Northern Illinois on Saturday night. Aren’t you supposed to do that when you win? But the amazing story, according to police records, is that when given a Breathalyzer, she blew an incredible .341. Just a reminder, the legal limit in Iowa is .08. Is that possible to be .341 and still standing? I guess so, because not only could she stand, she was able to Tweet, and tweet she did … Goudie said that she has gained thousands of followers on Twitter following her tweets. Because isn’t that what life is all about, the narcissism of social media.
See the rest of the Tweets at The Blaze, oh my.
A note to Miss Goudie, you might want to scrub your account before seeking a job in the not too distant future.
Who needs Vice President Joe Biden when we have Barack Obama to make gaffes …
Barack Obama was in Buffalo, NY yesterday on his campaign 2016 bus tour to discuss how the government is some how going to make school more affordable. During his campaign-like speech Obama screwed up the the mayor’s name. Details, details. Why should our imperial president have to know anyone’s name. The crowd actually had to corrected him. But we need to give Obama some slack, he has been under a lot of pressure with the foundering economy, record food stamp participation and the Middle East on fire. Maybe he needs a vacation?
Exit question: Why is Obama campaigning again? Did I miss something or didn’t he win a second and final term in office in 2012? The only thing that Obama is capable of doing is do a stump speech. Although it would appear he can’t even get people’s names right.
Could you imagine the reaction of the MSM had George Bush made the same gaffe?
Thanks Obamacare … UPS and UVA Ending Spousal Insurance Coverage … What Happened to Obama’s Promise that You Can Keep Your Insurance If You Want To
MISLEADER IN CHIEF: THANKS TO OBAMACARE, UPS AND UNIVERSITY OF VIRGINIA ENDING SPOUSAL INSURANCE COVERAGE …
Remember when President Barack Obama promised Americans that under Obamacare, you can keep your insurance coverage if you like it? Well guess what, HE LIED! As reported at the NY Times, United Parcel Service has told its employees that it will stop providing health care coverage to their spouses who can obtain coverage through their own employer. Thus, spouses who have a lesser coverage in their employment, but are provided heath care will no longer be able to be covered under the better UPS health care insurance plan. This is happening in many other companies and as it turns out Universities as well. UPS and UVA are dropping spousal coverage and citing increased health care costs. Wait, wasn’t Obamacare supposed to cut health care costs as well? I guess it all depends on what “nobody” is?
THE OBAMA LIES: “If you like your healthcare plan, you can keep your healthcare plan, PERIOD! No one will take it away, no matter what.”
United Parcel Service has told its white-collar employees that it will stop providing health care coverage to their spouses who can obtain coverage through their own employers, joining an increasing number of companies that are restricting or eliminating spousal health benefits.
U.P.S., the world’s largest package delivery company, said its decision was prompted in part by “costs associated with” the federal health care law that is commonly called Obamacare. Several health care experts, however, said they believed the company was motivated by a desire to hold down health care costs, rather than because of cost increases under the law.
In a memo addressed to employees, U.P.S. said, “Limiting plan eligibility is one way to manage ongoing health care costs, now and into the future, so that we can continue to provide affordable coverage for our employees.”
The memo also estimated that about 33,000 spouses were covered under its insurance plan for white-collar employees and that “about 15,000 of these would have health care coverage available through their own employers.”
The University of Virginia will no longer provide insurance coverage to the working spouses of its employees, a move university officials hope will save “millions of dollars.”
Starting Jan. 1, employee spouses who have health insurance coverage under their employers cannot get coverage under UVa’s plan. If the spouse is covered under a plan defined by the Affordable Care Act as “minimum value” and “affordable,” he or she will no longer be eligible.
Cutting off working spouses with access to health insurance is part of the university’s plan to save money in the long-term, said UVa spokesman McGregor McCance.
CAN WE PLEASE REPEAL THIS LIE AND START OVER FROM SCRATCH!!!
Illegal Immigrants, Oh Sorry Undocumented Students Demand In-State Tuition Change to Tuition Policy in North Carolina … Why Aren’t They Paying OUT-OF-COUNTRY TUITION!!!
Illegals push for in state tuition in North Carolina when they are not even US citizens. They are made to pay out-of-state tuition. HELL, they should be paying OUT-OF-COUNTRY TUITION!!!
Many illegal aliens were arrested during a protest Thursday at Wake Technical Community College demanding that they receive in-state tuition fees, rather than out of state tuition even though they are in the United States illegally. What a joke, if that is the case than student that is legally in the US should be allowed in-state tuition as well. If we are not going to be a country with borders, why have states with them as well?
At some point the United States has to figure out if we are a country of laws or not. And if borders actually mean something.
Dozens of undocumented students at Wake Technical Community College are pushing for changes to a policy that requires them to pay out-of-state tuition.
The students are forced to pay the out-of-state fees, which are nearly four times the cost of in-state tuition, even if they graduated from a North Carolina high school and have been living in the state for some time.
Five students were arrested at Thursday’s protest after repeated warnings to leave the campus. Wake Tech officials said the group didn’t file the proper paperwork to protest at the college. The five individuals, ranging in age from 17-27, are all charged with second-degree trespassing.
Meanwhile, undocumented students moved their demonstration to the highway demanding equal tuition rights.
“I think it’s discriminatory because they give us the opportunity already to be able to study here. We work really hard,” said undocumented student Jose Rico.
Four former Vanderbilt Football Players (JaBorian McKenzie, Cory Batey, Brandon Vandenburg & Brandon Banks Charged with Rape and Aggravated Sexual Battery of Unconscious 21 Year Old Female Coed
Four former Vanderbilt football players have been charged with the rape and aggravated sexual assault of an unconscious 21 year old female coed. Brandon Vandenburg, 20, from California; Brandon Eric Banks, 19, from Maryland; JaBorian “Tip” McKenzie, 18 from Mississippi and Cory Batey, 19, of Nashville, were charged with five counts each of aggravated rape and two counts of aggravated sexual battery. Vandenburg was also charged with one count of unlawful photography and tampering with evidence. The incident occurred in the early hours on the Vanderbilt campus in Nashville, Tennessee in June 23, 2013. However, it wasn’t discovered by university officials until two days later after officials there were reviewing hallway camera footage in an unrelated incident when they saw the four former football players acting suspiciously. The players were subsequently kicked off the football team and dimissed from the university.
Cory Batey has already been arrested and taken to General Hospital for a mandatory blood draw. Tennessee police are attempting to track down the other three down and have notified authorities in the states they reside that indictments have been issued. They have the option to surrender themselves to authorities or arrest warrants will be issued.
From The Tennessean:
Four former Vanderbilt University football players were charged Friday in the rape of an unconscious student in a Gillette Hall dormitory room in a case police described as “unsettling.”
Brandon Vandenburg, 20, from California; Brandon Eric Banks, 19, from Maryland; JaBorian “Tip” McKenzie, 18 from Mississippi and Cory Batey, 19, of Nashville, were charged with five counts each of aggravated rape and two counts of aggravated sexual battery. Vandenburg was also charged with one count of unlawful photography and tampering with evidence.
Police said the case came to light only after university officials saw something suspicious while reviewing surveillance camera footage in an unrelated matter.

FOUR VANDERBILT FOOTBALL PLAYERS DISMISSED FROM TEAM …
The Vanderbilt football team has made great strides in recent years in the SEC under the guidance and coaching of James Franklin. However, they find themselves in the midst of sex crimes. Four Vanderbilt football players have been dismissed from the team. As The Tennessean reports, the four dismissed players have been placed on interim suspension from the university amid a sex crimes investigation by Nashville Metro police. The names of the players have not been named, as there have yet to be any arrests or indictments as the investigation continues into the incident. It has been confirmed that the Nashville Metropolitan Police Department’s Sex Crimes Unit began an investigation on Wednesday in regard to a matter that was alleged to have occurred at a Vanderbilt University dormitory. That investigation has been confirmed to be tied to the four dismissed players. What a sad state of affairs when even an academic institution like Vanderbilt fall pray to the crimes committed by athletes.
Four Vanderbilt football players have been dismissed from the team and placed on interim suspension from the university amid a sex crimes investigation by Metro police.
Vanderbilt announced the dismissals and suspensions for violation of team rules this morning. The players were not identified.
“The well-being of our students is of paramount concern to us, and we will not tolerate any actions that threaten student safety and security,” said Beth Fortune, Vanderbilt vice chancellor for public affairs, in the release.
Metro police and Vanderbilt’s administration were keeping a tight lid on details of the incident and no arrests had been made as of Friday night.
“I can confirm that the Metropolitan Police Department’s Sex Crimes Unit began an investigation on Wednesday in regard to a matter that was alleged to have occurred at a Vanderbilt University dormitory,” said Don Aaron, spokesman for Metro police. “Our sex crimes detectives became involved as the result of a notification to us on Wednesday from Vanderbilt University police. The investigation remains very much in progress.
Vanderbilt has dismissed four football players from the team and kicked them off campus while Nashville police investigate whether a sex crime occurred in a campus dormitory.
The school’s public affairs department announced Friday that four players — none of whom it named — were suspended from the team. The university issued another release Saturday morning indicating they’re removed from the team and on interim suspension from the university “effective immediately, pending further investigation and/or a hearing.”
School officials say the players can’t return to campus “without explicit permission” from the school’s office of student conduct and academic integrity.
