The only acceptable prejudices at Williams are against rich people and white people.
What would have been the Administration’s reaction to a tweet by a student which replaced “white” with “black?”

She insulted our fashion sense, I think we will get over it.
#2 Comment By March?!? On August 18, 2016 @ 10:57 am
i looked into it. This tweet was posted in early march. David clipped it that day and held onto it until late august.
meanwhile, in actual williams related news, there are memorials and testimonials for/about Leslie Brown, Charles Dew wrote a memoir, a new movie out by a Williams alum, a professor started a new magazine, ephs won best student presentation at the MAA conference, 4 ephs were reporting from Rio, an eph is involved in designing and building the new LACMA, Tim Kaine seems to be referencing a Williams prof on the stump, two ephs went to Alaska to start a new clothing line…and that’s just from williams college tweets in August, found in 5 minutes. But this was a worthwhile post? GTFOH.
white fragility is so 2015.

The lesson, as always, is that conservatives hate PC until they can pretend to be victims (War on Christians! War on Christmas! War on Cops! A black person joked about my fashion sense!) and then they absolutely love it more than they love anything.

Anti-white, anti-cop hate is real. Check out the recent black mob violence in Milwaukee.
It is important to address anti-white, anti-cop hate so that it does not become normalized. Unfortunately, at Williams College it looks like such hate has become normalized… I’m glad we have a forum here to address it.
FYI: My take on young Obama will now be featured in a new documentary film by Trevor Loudon, “The Enemies Within.” I’ll be in good company since Glenn Beck and Dinesh D’Souza are also interviewed in the film. Trish and I will be attending the pre-premier in Hollywood this Sunday.

Oh, Christ, the anti-white, anti-cop meme. So stupid, so pathetic, so in opposition to actual facts. Violence against cops is far below what it was during every presidency since Carter’s.
Glenn Beck, Dinesh D’Souza are “good company” now? Ha! Thanks for the laugh. I needed that as I finalize my syllabi.

Dcat – once again showing your jealousy of JCD. Looking a bit green there (with envy). Can’t blame you though, JCD was a prof at a top college and an award winning political scientist…
Do you enjoy flipping out every time JCD makes a post?

Good stuff! You should join us as an author and post those items.

Yeah, if only we could all be in documentaries. Oh, wait …

No, David Dudley Field, you should just be a better author. Get a personal blog if you wanna post crap. Make an effort to post Williams-centric content here. Sure, if there was nothing going on, and you want to post every day, then post this crap, but there is plenty more you could talk about.

Thx. It is fun to have a friendly face on this blog.
FYI, my article on young Obama’s commitment to Communist revolution is now featured in Glenn Beck’s newest book, Liars. Check out page 154.
Here’s the link to the original article.
Trish and I are going to the premier of “The Enemies Within” tomorrow afternoon. I’ll let you know how it goes.

Oh, Dear…. JCD has not been heard from since 8/20. I wonder if he was kidnapped by, e.g., the Shining Path, at the premiere. ;-o

It was a little uncomfortable to be the only ex-Communist in a room packed with 50+ GOP donors and associated ex-CIA and ex-DOD analysts.
At the start, they used a shot of me sharing how little human life mattered to me as young radical student back in 1979. I was chilled to the bone as I saw myself recounting how I would have been willing to murder those who opposed an inevitable Communist revolution. It was sobering stuff.
Despite that tense moment, I was pleased to help them raise a ton of money that night. If anyone here wants to help fund this movie, their website is below:
Although I was on the wrong side of the Cold War, I’m proud to be on the right side of history vis-à-vis the Obama administration.

Trevor Loudon? Would this be the same man famed in New Zealand as a leader of the failed ACT right wing political party? The same Trevor Loudon equally famed for being a leader in the Zenith Applied Philosphy (yes, ZAP) Scientology offshoot cult-religion founded by the late John “Johnny Ultimate” Dalhoff that teaches that Christchurch New Zealand is in fact the center of the universe?
Maybe Trump is right about foreign immigrants coming here and taking American jobs. Surely we produce enough wingnuts to make our own conspiracy films. But congratulations on your documentary appearance, JCD. Will you be calling for more Scientologists to be appointed to the Williams faculty to promote viewpoint diversity? Perhaps a campus speaker on the cosmic significance of Christchurch?

I don’t see a lot of diversity in ephs appearance.
All look purple to me…
Williams has a mold when it comes to appearance… and almost no one breaks it.

– A Williams Parent
If Trevor is fueled by Zenith Applied Philosophy (ZAP), then maybe all of us should give it a try.
His research is outstanding. He was a strong enemy of the USSR and the Communist Party and I think it is fair to say that his side won the Cold War.
Trevor was among the first to identify Obama’s ties to known Communists like Frank Marshall Davis, Communist Party ID#47544.
At a time when I was being ridiculed for sharing that Obama was not the life-long centrist he was pretending to be, Trevor was among the first to verify and leverage my testimony.
I’ll stand with the folks in this world who are telling the truth.
