The case against sending your children to university — via the “Globe and Mail”

Ezra LevantRebel Commander


I don’t read the Globe and Mail a lot, but here's a story they just ran, about a small university in Nanaimo, British Columbia:

Internal e-mails obtained by The Globe and Mail, as well as interviews, other documents and a formal complaint filed with B.C.'s Human Rights Tribunal outline allegations that the student wished to be treated like an infant, wearing a soother around his neck, talking in a baby voice and submitting an assignment that included a photo of him in a diaper. (...)

The official said the student also suggested he had a disability but did not immediately provide additional evidence.

The university moved the student into another professor’s class, with no warning. His antics continued. Six women eventually complained.

And the school's human rights director "says she was fired because she continued to investigate the matter." 

The student wasn't expelled, but the school's human rights director "says she was fired because she continued to investigate the matter."

That’s what universities are like now.

Not just gross actions like here. But the case of Professor Jordan Peterson, who was threatened because he refused to call students by made up phrases like "Zhee" and "Zher," instead of "he" and "her." 

Yeah, send your kids to trade school instead...

NEXT: Sheila Gunn Reid joins us via Skype to talk about her reports from the UN Climate Change Conference in Bonn, Germany.

She explains that, since Rebel viewers crowdfunded this journalistic mission, she and her producer are economizing; besides staying at an AirBnB and flying economy, yesterday, rather than take taxis, they walked over 20 kilometres to cover stories on foot!

She talks about the difference between the US delegation and those of other nations, and all the hypocrisy that's on display at this luxury globalist get-together.

Sheila also previews some of her upcoming reports.

THEN: Marc Morano of ClimateDepot.com comes on with an exclusive scoop you have to see to believe:

Video of the former UN Climate Chief calling for a "centralized transformation" of society (but there's more...)

FINALLY: Your messages to me!

Adult student behaving as a baby, expecting to be treated as a baby, but knows all about the law… Soon to be serial killer?

Thirty years ago he would be out on his butt, but not today. Entitlement, universities and schools bowing to every whim of the students, mothering them, never a harsh word to be heard, ignore reality and the real world, giving passing grades to avoid frivolous complaints, students in charge of disciplinary committees; what would you expect to happen?

You can’t say anything negative to them, such as, “The way you are going you won’t pass” because, well, that is not only offensive but a criticism. They actually expect you to come in on your days off (weekends) because, well, they haven’t attended class most of the time and want you to catch them up.

There is a reason why I stopped working at a university about fifteen years ago. The student’s failures are your fault, they lie as easily as they breath, and good grades – no, exceptional grades – are due to them simply by being allowed into the school, which they consider a right to attend.

There are minimum quotas on foreign students taking the place of worthy Canadian students, and exchange students who really shouldn’t be in our schools are being subsidised by our taxes, and again taking the place of Canadian students worthy of scholarships. Strangely enough, foreign students seem to get a pass even though they are as ignorant as a brass doorknob. If they aren’t passed, expect a chat with the chairman or dean.

(Note, most – not all – foreign students who qualify for our universities usually come from well-to-do families who were able to afford good schools for these students. Flying to all parts of the world during the holidays is no problem for them, some paying students to attend their classes and take notes while they take extended vacations).

My two cents, now a nickel.

PAUL MCCULLOUGH commented, “Those who can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities” – Voltaire”, thanks for that quote, chilling as it is about the consequence of believing absurdities.

How do you tell if someone wearing a burka is a zhee or a zher?

Ha-ha-ha – the snake bites its own tail!

- “Those who can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities” – Voltaire. Universities have become institutions of the absurd. A reflection of the politically correct insanity of the leftists who run them.

- The Greenpeace boat is a perfect reflection of Greenpeace itself. It looks like a sailboat but isn’t – they look like an environment but are not. The “journalists” that were allowed in are not journalists, they’re stenographers. The UN isn’t looking for solutions to the environmental problems they invented. They aren’t about solutions, they’re about wealth redistribution.

- So the former UN climate chief says the US will miss out on all the wonders of green energy – the same thing we hear every time these green scams are implemented. We have yet to see any of these benefits, anywhere. The UN is full of crap. They know they’re full of crap. They seek to maintain the green illusion at any cost. They won’t let anyone in who is a danger to that illusion.

Great. I’ve been investing into an RESP for 12 years and now my son will have nothing to spend it on.
I’m with Ben Shapiro. Get in, get your education and get out. After that you can do what you want.
It wouldn’t matter if Sheila had an “All Access Pass”, she could never unveil all the hypocrisy and corruption at the UN or the Canadian government for that matter

Great post William Elder.

Mark Morano’s questions yielded the expected results from this anti-capitalist, elite globalist. Her arrogance was peaking indeed.

Sheila, thanks for reporting on the things that highlight how COP23 is another brick in the wall.

Good move by Marc to track down Christiana Figueres at her smiling chauffeur driven sedan.
Better move by Marc to lob a slow pitch so that Christiana could easily belt out a home run bashing of Trump and list all of the goals of the climate change movement. Her self importance and arrogance were on full display. Here is a backgrounder link from October 2015 when Figueres stated the goal of environmental activists is not to save the world from ecological calamity but to destroy capitalism.

After Paris where the hypocrisy was rampant (and still is) I wrote my “Are You a Climate Change Hypocrite?” challenge. Maybe some of these COP delegates should be challenged to take it!

BTW, good job Shelia. But I, and I know I am not the only only one, wish we were all on the cruise right now. Hopefully next year. Last years was great.

University must be pretty damn horrible for those who have a sense of reality and put up with the insanity in order to get educated.

Well maybe some good will come from Jihadist enabling, they can deal with idiots like this.

Can you imagine the quality of faculty such a weak kneed president will attract? The president should tell diaper boy to ditch the soother and put on some clothes or be kicked out.

I just feel terrible about all those sad souls who sent me pictures of their genitals over social media now; seems they had “exceptionalities”, and here I blocked them and called them names, shame on me.

Since when did indulging in bizarre (and highly eww….) sexual fetishes in public while involving others against their will become a human right? If it’s just a case of a guy wanting to live as an infant all you have to do is look at his computer and there shouldn’t be any evidence of diaper related fetish porn.

Why can’t things be private? People should be able to do whatever they want if they aren’t hurting any other living creatures, but can’t you dress up like some weird 6 yr old with a soother and not tell the press?

Outside of an education in the real sciences, engineering, math ans business, the humanities departments are nothing less than the entrenched anti-intellectual red guard. The administrators are hapless drones who couldn’t manage a 7-11 let alone a campus and the bill for de-educating your kid is 3 times what it should be – just to attain a worthless degree in some baffle gab pseudo-science.

In the hiring capacity in my last position, I saw the fallout – millennials who thought the work place was an extended social entitlement, and thought the workplace culture was a social experiment in PC evangelism. There IS a reason companies and government services run dysfunctionally inefficient – the root cause is universities have become dysfunctional and inefficient

EZRA, Gian Ghomeshi was found innocent, although he had to make an apology to someone. You keep saying that he did things that the courts found him not guilty of.
I just don’t want you to be sued again.

Anybody who cannot sympathise with the faculty trying to teach class and the students who have taken large loans to get an education should be made to change his diaper and let’s just hope they weren’t studying psychology or we’re all screwed.

I agree with Marc that whatever her name is, laughed just a little too quickly, loudly and long. Those people really do think we are stupid.

Good on Trump for his small succinct contribution.

Re: dude in a diaper.
It looks like we really are going to have to bottom out before we can start climbing out of this ditch. I cannot believe we are even talking about such a repulsive case. Canada’s government is eventually going to have a lot to answer for. Except for the fact that they will all be eating cake with Soro’s in some foreign land far far away from the country and the people they destroyed.

The university story: Some male student treating female workers at the university like sex objects. And since he pretended to be a baby, the matter was dropped by the university.

There are no bigger cesspools of toxic bureaucrats than within the post secondary ed sector. “Human rights”, “equity” and “diversity” are just weapons with which to make faculty and front line workers’ lives miserable. It doesn’t matter how ridiculous or contemptible their decisions, it doesn’t matter. As long as I’ve got a lever with which to exert my power over you, I’ll use it.

In this case, there’s no question that the crazy baby is a young pervert indulging his fetish. If he were some lowly staffer who got his nutty pronouns wrong, they’d ride him out of town on a rail. But hey, they can use this idiot to terrorize the peons, so let’s milk it for all it’s worth.

I doubt that the complainants in this case will get much satisfaction from the Human Rights Commission. This is the well from which a lot this lunacy springs after all. Even if they are successful, their damages will be in the four figures not in millions.

I do take some comfort in my belief that within a generation a good chunk of the higher ed sector in this country is going to collapse. Hopefully something new and innovative will take its place.

I don’t get the university story.
