Evergreen State College, the site of viral student protests over the past two weeks, now offers fall 2017 courses that might be even more ridiculous than the commotion that’s been rocking the university.
Courses titled “Awakening the Dreamer, Pursuing the Dream,” “Afrofuturism,” “Growing, Creating, and Understanding Color,” and “Countertextual Ecologies: Gastropoetics” can be found in its fall 2017- spring 2018 Course Catalogue.
OLYMPIA, Wash. – The Evergreen State College in Olympia closed suddenly Thursday and evacuated all students and staff in response to an unspecified threat. “In response to a direct threat to campus safety, the college is closing immediately for the day,” the college said in a special announcement on its website.
On Sunday, The College Fix released compiled footage of students at Evergreen State College disturbingly overtaking their “racist white teachers,” shouting down their administrators, chanting “black power” and overall acting like the entitled spoiled brats that they are.
[Ed.: We love it that they’re calling their Leftist faculty and professors ‘racists’ when we thought that was only reserved for card-carrying Republicans. It’s amazing that even a bastion of socialist/communist ideology like Evergreen is eating itself. Napoleon said ‘Never interfere with an enemy while he’s in the process of destroying himself.’]
Evergreen State College president expresses ‘gratitude’ for ‘passion and courage’ | The Washington Times
The president of Evergreen State College in Washington said he is “grateful” for the “passion and courage” demonstrated by a mob of students who had taken over his campus and driven a professor to teach off campus out of concerns for his safety.
[Ed.: President Bridges: Why should you be grateful for misguided ‘passion’? It takes no ‘courage’ to bully another human being when the rest of the mob is with you. Professor Weinstein is the one that is showing courage in the face of overwhelming pressure to capitulate to these social justice tyrants.]
Evergreen State students demand professor resign for failing to participate in ‘Day of Absence’ | Washington Times
A mob of students at a Washington state liberal-arts college confronted a professor and demanded his resignation for writing an email questioning the propriety of a race demonstration in which white people were invited to leave campus for a day.
[Ed.: Oh, invited, yeah, it sounds more like our little precious snowflakes were making a fascistic demand for Professor Weinstein to leave campus for a day. See, this is what letting the inmates run the asylum looks like. This is also what political correctness run amok looks like. We think that “Evergreen State College” should be renamed to “Ever-whining State College”.]
Colin Kaepernick has at least one huge supporter in Seattle. If Seattle city council member Kshama Sawant ran the Seahawks’ front office, it sounds like the first — and only — player she would sign is Colin Kaepernick. Sawant, a socialist who has been a city council member since 2014, believes that Kaepernick would be welcomed in Seattle. In a strong showing of support for the quarterback, Sawant wrote a letter to the team on Friday urging the Seahawks to add their former division rival.
Our councilmember should not only have her (economics) degree revoked, because she doesn’t understand basic economics, but she doesn’t even understand what she’s voted on, which is to impose fees on downtown, South Lake Union, and the U-District – exactly what she’s talking about.”
[Ed.: Oh, HELLS NO! These are two cranky leftist peas in a pod and the Seattle Seahawks emphatically do not need the anti-American mojo that Kaepernick is peddling.]
