if you thought the AFAM scam with the football and basketball players was bad, get a load of this:
The University of North Carolina offers a communications course about the dangers of hate speech, which the course’s professor openly blames on the political right.
The class, titled “Hate Speech” and designated by the course number COMM 624, is taught by Dr. Michael S. Waltman, who has written and co-authored several books about hate speech, including The Communication of Hate, which “examines the strategic manipulation of hatred in [Americans’] everyday lives by politicians, political operatives, and media personalities.”
According to the course catalog, the class was designed “to expose students to the nature of hate in American life . . . [that] is sustained through the imposition of racist, sexist, and heterosexist ideologies that privilege Whiteness, maleness, and heterosexuality.”
*Wow. Acing this class really ought to impress some potential employers, huh?* MORE:
The description states that hate may “be resisted through communication” involving respect and tolerance, a term the course adopted from the Southern Poverty Law Center. Students are taught how to recognize hate so that “knowledge of the essence of hate will place students in a position to fight hate when they encounter it in their own lives.”
This might have come in handy for those folks who got their asses kicked by mobs of radical leftists for simply being white and attending a Donald Trump speech. MORE:
[…] UNC’s Undergraduate Student Services confirmed to Campus Reform that the class has been listed on the course catalog since the spring of 2010, but may have been offered before then, since the university switched to a new online cataloging system at the start of that year. Waltman also taught an “Honors Hate Speech” course in 2008.[…]
Honors Hate Speech ????? (Ladies and gentlemen, YOUR tax dollars at work!) MORE:
[…] UNC offers the class exclusively at its flagship Chapel Hill campus, offering one section during the spring semester of every year that is open to students of all majors. The class is not mandatory for students in any discipline, but does fulfill a course requirement for students taking certain concentrations.[…]
*Not mandatory ???? What the hell? That – that -that -that’s, um … (racist?).* MORE:
[…] Waltman’s most recent book, Hate Speech on the Right, explores various examples of hate speech allegedly delivered by the political right. Published in 2014, the book focuses on “right-wing extremism” in films and novels, such as White Apocalypse and Atlas Shrugged, as well as within advocacy organizations like the National Rifle Association.
The book analyzes “whether much of the discourse on the political right . . . is hate speech” and claims that racist, political, Christian, and paramilitary right-wing groups use hate speech as “a common frame of reference when confronting social and political challenges.”
Dr. Waltman has been an associate professor at the University of North Carolina since 1992 and has garnered a number of awards for his articles and publications on hate speech and the political right, many of which focus on “white supremacist terrorism” and responding to hate from the right.
Online registrar records show that during the 2016 spring semester, the class enrolled 39 students and had five added to the wait-list. Undergraduate Student Services told Campus Reform that 31 students were enrolled the year before, explaining that although the class is technically capped at 30 students, Dr. Waltman maintains the discretion to make exceptions for additional students.
And this comes on the heels (pun intended) of the nonsense over the “Chief Diversity Officer” at UNC system sister school Appalachian State University. You have to ask: Where are our Republican governor, lieutenant governor, and legislators on stuff like this?
This is not scholarship. This is political indoctrination paid for by US. It’s brainwashing the next generation of Bernie Sanders acolytes. Would discussion of the beat-downs in San Jose of Trump supporters be welcome in this jerk’s class? I doubt it. *This guy and his comrades have the market cornered on peace, love, and understanding.*
Why have Jones and Blount Streets allowed the Boards of Governors and Trustees to be loaded up with cronies, Raleigh influence-peddlers, campaign contributors and various and sundry bored housewives, hangers-on and go-along, get-along types? 2010 and 2012 gave us historic opportunities to enact lasting change in North Carolina. Yet, the governing bodies of our state universities — with not a conservative in sight — are allowing the same ol’ crap to fester on the campuses. We keep paying the bill while these people on campus finish off the job of tearing down our society and lobotomizing our kids.
