Ezra Levant: University outlaws critical thinking on campus

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

On last night's show, I reported on Wilfred Laurier University disciplining a graduate student in a kangaroo court for showing a clip of Jordan Peterson in class.

Lindsay Shepherd didn't show the clip to advocate for Peterson's views, she was just presenting his point of view. But that didn't stop university administrators from calling her actions "violence" and comparing the video to footage of Hitler.

We've known for a long time that universities are Marxists dominated brainwashing institutions, but now we have proof that they enforce adherence to their ideology with Maoist style secret courts.

We’ve launched a petition too, that you can sign at SaveLindsay.com.

We’ll deliver it to Wilfrid Laurier, telling them to dismiss the Orwellian complaint against Lindsay Shepherd, apologize to her, and reaffirm its commitment to academic freedom.

Correct spelling for Nathan Rambukkana and Nicholas Matte. My apologies for misspelling Nathan ’s name in earlier posts.

The Arts, History/Anthropology, Literature/Language,Philosophy/Religion; those are the topics involved in what they call The Humanities. It isn’t all about sexual orientation and the politics of getting people to conform via confusion.

Jordan Peterson, both Nathan Rambukkana’s and Nicholas Matte’s nemesis, is far more qualified to teach a humanities course than either of them. Peterson is a sane and thoughtful, highly qualified professor, the other two just come off as perv’s. Check them out, they are messing with the minds and bodies of the next generation. How many more are there like them, how big is the army of SJW’s who are in positions of mentorship to our children?

Should we take a sober second look at what we are allowing to be taught in our public schools, now that sexualized curriculum’s are already well in place for young children, particularly in Ontario? I think it is a big worry for society as a whole.

After a little research it is plain to see that both Nathen Rambukkanna, Wilfred Laurier and Nicolas Matte, U of T are into fetishes, S&M, masturbation month, public sex art exhibitions, fetish porn, group ‘cuddle’ sessions, ’non monogamy or polygamy, and all the political sjw crap connected to this ideology(?) I checked out articles, Matte’s twitter page, viewer discretion is advised (Nathen’s is closed) and a site called ratemyprofessors.com. Students have to identify themselves on Nathen’s page, so as you can imagine the few reviews are affected by that I am sure. Matte’s page however is a glaring reflection of what the majority of his students think of him and it is not good. That was heartening to know there still exist some common sense in the minds of some of these kid’s.

Nathen and Nicholas are both career student’s turned prof, have been in the game for almost? two decades and have ‘taught’ at several Canadian Universities over the years. They write papers and sell books, aside from indoctrinating young minds. They are so far removed from reality that they honestly don’t see a problem with what they do. They are utterly brainwashed and they want company. I don’t want to pay for it, and I don’t want to see kids twisted and confused because these two (and many others I am sure) think they are doing important work, saving lives even. They have been sucked into a cult, and they want to spread it. They think humanities courses are all about sex and sexual orientation, and seem to ignore everything else.

Everyone involved should be either fired or suspended.
This Ass. Professor is so covering his derriere.
There are soooooo many liberals trying to cover their derrieres when all they need is Charmin.

Moral of the story: A university must be repeatedly publicly shamed, internationally, in order to apologize (oh, but keep the task force & investigation). Even then, ambiguous about free speech. Also, make sure to secretly record all meetings or they won’t take you seriously."

… may actually indicate that she put the red pill on her tongue, despite subsequent tweets where she still claims to adhere to her liberalism. Someone rub her throat, quick, I want her to swallow that pill, before she accepts the half-hearted apologies as sufficient. I think she knows she only got the apologies because her tape exposed the real fascists.

My first shot was to sign the petition but second thoughts prevailed. She herself is a progressive and frankly, the more the progressives attack each other the better. Shine sunlight on their fascism but as Napoleon said “Never interrupt your enemy when he is making a mistake.”

Our University system is becoming a crucible for neo-Bolshevik critical theory. Public funding for anything other than Science,Medicine, Eng, Economics and any disciplines used for research, should be defended.

“Today he sent Lindsay Shepherd an ‘apology’ in an open letter, no doubt prompted by the audio of the meeting becoming public:”

Absolutely, RON. He’s like a cat covering crap.

Perhaps these ignorant educators don’t know the Truth about fascism . . . being that they have spent their entire lives in the so-called Halls of Learning . . . gag !

How about we ask an expert . . .
“Fascism” is a term that was originally coined by the Italian dictator Mussolini to describe his adaptation of Marxism to the conditions of Italy after World War I. Lenin in Russia made somewhat different adaptations of Marxism to the conditions in Russia during the same period and his adaptations came to be called Marxism/Leninism. Mussolini stayed closer to Marx in that he felt that Italy had to go through a capitalist stage before it could reach socialism whereas Lenin attempted to push Russia straight from semi-feudalism into socialism. Mussolini’s principal modification of Marxism was his rejection of the notion of class war, something that put him decisively at odds with Lenin’s “Reds”.

Fascism was a nationalist form of extreme socialism whereas Trotskyism was/is a internationalist form of extreme socialism — with Leninism being somewhere in between.

So would it be Proper to call this inquisition “facist” . . . I would say YES ! ! !

Assistant professor Nathan Rambukkana who was part of the inquisition:

Today he sent Lindsay Shepherd an ‘apology’ in an open letter, no doubt prompted by the audio of the meeting becoming public:

As well the university president has made an apology:

Of course the usual bureaucratic approach to get you off the hook, create a task force.

I have heard of the “kangaroo court” proceedings of various HRCs across Canada over the years and have heard and seen some pretty radical Leftist stuff going on there. There has been some backlash from the Right but it clearly has not dampened the spirit of these crazies. They have now taken their extremism and imposed it into our education system. Now we see this; it seems to be coming from some crazy third rate SciFi movie. You cldn’t have dreamed up characteristics this Orwellian.

Universities have adopted a Totalitarianism approach, and strive to indoctrinate rather than educate students…. no critical thinking allowed.

The Marxist interrogator at one point says that discussing illegal events in classrooms is “toxic”.[Inferring ridiculously that the professor, under discussion’s, opinions are illegal!!]. This, in a college critical thinking course! Has it gotten this stupid in Canada!
commented 2017-11-21 13:11:09 -0500
Should demand the resignation of the kangaroo court!
