Cornell has decided to not charge College Republicans extra money for Security.Ain't it Grand? Cornell is allowing Americans to exercise their Right without charging extra. Pretty soon the school will treat Republicans the same as they do hyphenated americans and all other Leftists.

 

Article is interesting if one has the time to read it.

A former Speaker of The House of Representatives speaks on the Cornell campus and the writer implies that the college initially considered it a "controversial event" but then decides to cover the security costs of same? The same college that experienced a murder on campus last year at a non-controversial event?? The bizarro world of academia

Obviously 'ol Newt Gingrich didn't initially qualify and was going to have to pay for his own "safe space" on campus simply because of his views.....a conservative representative of the Republican Party. Wow. Out of touch controlling administrations on colleges. Proving once again that liberals believe in freedom of speech...as long as they agree with it.

I mentioned before that my son is attending BCC this year and in one of his courses he has to write a term paper entitled..."What would you most like to protest against Trump for"...not disagree but point blank "protest"...I told my son (who is not a liberal) not to write it if he didn't feel comfortable...I am also thinking of calling the Dean and complaining. Many times my son is being forced to write papers against his beliefs and pertaining to the left...In class discussion there are only two of them who aren't libs and if one speaks up, they get blasted...

Please post the names of these "professors".  It is beyond time to call out these clowns and put them in their place.

BCC is a community college, not some IVY league school of propaganda.

I'll ask him but he seemed to be very hesitant when I told him I was going to contact the college. He told me that he just wants to get through that course without conflicts. It's some kind of "Life Course" they have to take. I can understand his concern because this is what these colleges are doing to kids..brainwashing and punishing those who don't conform.

I can't blame him.  But he is going to be learning a great life lesson.

 

2 things he can do is to fill out the course evaluation at the end of the semester. 

And he can go online after the course is over and go to RateMyProfessor.com and give an honest evaluation of the instructor.

 

These people need to be lassoed in.

CM, if your son wanted to be funny I suppose he could protest President Trump forcing Chris Christie to eat meatloaf at the White House on St.Valentines Day. Funny thing is, it must have been a meatloaf kind of day because that's what I cooked too.  :)

Seriously, I would think the least controversial thing to whine about would be the repeal/replace of Obama care.

 

Please tell your son he is not alone. Even some adult students who return to college are uncomfortable, not only with the vitriolic rhetoric. I've heard horror stories of entire classes and teachers ganging up on students.

I'd say just answer the prompt honestly: nothing. Articulate his view.

Then if he's penalized for it, you *really* have something to complain about.

It's definitely wildly inappropriate.
He's the hero Binghamton deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So we'll hunt him. Because he can take it. Because he's not our hero. He's a silent guardian, a watchful protector. A Bingoloid.

I agree Bingoloid. I don't see this as an inappropriate assignment. Creating critical thinkers is not easy, but we certainly need more of them. People who can see both sides of an issue are rare these days. In college I was assigned to write an essay about an issue that I felt extremely passionate about. The next assignment was for me to write an essay about the same issue, but I had to write about how I supported the opposite opinion.

It sounds like the balancing that you're talking about isn't happening.

I'm sure that same professor regularly assigned students to write essays about why they'd want to protest Obama when he held office. 

 

Sure they did...

Why be pessimistic/sarcastic? Maybe the professor did? A professor has a pretty good education in order to be a professor? Might know what he/she is doing?

True, but there are some duds. Many, many more good teachers and professors than bad ones for sure though. However, I always worked harder for the bad teachers and seemed to learn anyway. Funny how that works sometimes? You can learn more from an idiot. Maybe that's why I read BCVoice? Lol!!

Well, not in my sons' class. Obama is to be praised at all times and any negativities gets shut down very quickly especially by the minority females who seem to be the most vocal...and loudest. My son said he never even bothers anymore because they just talk over him and don't give a crap about anyone else's opinion. He is constantly being reminded that this is a new America where the "white male opinion" doesn't matter. God help us when this group of tolerant people take charge of this nation....

Admittedly, last course I took at SUNY Broome was a few years back, but I don't remember the liberal arts courses being quite *that* slanted.

Is someone actually telling him this, or are you maybe putting a coat of varnish on it because you're frustrated?
