University Of Michigan’s Bias Response Team

I had a exchange with a recent U of M grad over the University’s “Bias Response Team”. The University is being sued by several organizations claiming it infringes on free speech. You can see U of M’s description here:

I expressed my displeasure with such Orwellian bodies, to which the person (snowflake) said in a huffy, angry tone “well, I support it, because there have been numerous incidents of racism on campus”. I would dispute his characterization of a handful of incidents, several of which have proven to be hoaxes, to be signs of rampant racism. But if you accept his premise my response was:

  1. The way to defeat bad or unsavory speech is with more speech, not by eliminating said speech. I oppose real racism, but to quote one of my favorite sports personalities “call me a free speech absolutist.”
  2. The policies in the above link are vague and unclear. A bias incident can be “unintentional”. What is this? It’s like the USSR.
  3. The bias response team is open to any perceived slight, not just racism. Will it be applied evenly? What about conservative students who loathe Antifa or communism? Will they get an audience? I doubt it.
  4. There is no evidence that said incidences of racism were perpetrated by U of M students. The campus is open. People come and go. It could have been townies. In which case, what does this accomplish?

LeBron James’ Charity Is Not What It Appears

Left-wing media has a slobbering love affair with LeBron James because of his game and his left-wing bonafides. Lately he has been getting acclaim for his charitable work with Akron schools. “LeBron James’ Academy” is the way it is being promoted. One small problem: it turns out hardly any of the money involved is his. It turns out it is mostly on the Akron tax-payer. Hmm. Like a lot of leftists, Mr. James talks a good game but sticks others with the bill. He fits right in.

Trump, The Economy and Race

For a guy whom the far-left calls “racist”, a “Nazi” and Hitler on a daily basis, Trump sure seems to be enacting a lot of policies helping minority America. The economy is booming, while black and Hispanic unemployment rates are at historical lows. Why would a “racist” want this to happen? The answer, if not obvious, is that Trump is not a racist. I think he is color-blind, and while having a huge ego does care and want people to be able to make it. He seems to abhor big-government socialism however, and the dependency that comes with it. He wants people to be independent. Make no mistake, the economy is doing well for two simple reasons: tax cuts and, even more important, deregulation.

The American far-left and Democrats are up in arms not over any real or perceived injustice. They are up in arms because they are LOSING, and they know they are LOSING. They want control and a coddled, dependent populace.

NYT Sinks To New Low, Hires Vile Leftist Racist Tech Editor

But I repeat myself. The New York Times hired a crazy Asian woman, Sarah Jeong, as tech editor because, you know, she’s so smart and cool! Calling Trump Hitler is nothing to this woman. She has also said “cancel white people” and called for the death of men among other things. Hiring a vile racist shit-bag like this woman is nothing new for the Times. Why stop there? Why not hire an Antifa leader for weekly editorials? Can you imagine if a white man or woman said such things about some other group of people? The left would be apoplectic. Hey NYT: hypocrisy much?
