During his speech he also says he will be taking on Student Debt and making schools partly responsible for it… “have some skin in the game” and have pressures to cut costs. I can hear the Administration Of Universities nation wide issuing a collective GASP!
We may have to wait a while before anything happens.
It used to be that federal research fundings could be frozen until any related federal lawsuits had been settled. Freezing funds until a settlement is reached would provide the offender with an incentive to make things right without delay.
Here in North Carolina, the UNC system (18 universities) is notorious for dragging things out so plaintiffs run out of money or die of old age. The universities use their long pockets to delay justice. When leftists intimidate people the same administrators let them get away with it. UNC and Duke have an odious reputation for wilting in the face of activist riots as in the “Silent Sam” and the Robert E. Lee vandalism.
Weak kneed campus administrations are getting to be a serious problem so I hope that somebody will find a way to use the Trump executive order to deter such outrages in the future. If we can’t hold violent protesters responsible it may be time to go after the weak “Leaders” or the entire institution.
yes, gc, not yet the time to break open the champagne.
Is it just me, or are the Antifa anywhere really just fascists?
They wear masks, they oppose free speech, they use violent means to break up free assemblies, they are fascists. The name ‘anti-fa’ is meant to confuse, the old Hegelian, Plato, Big Bro ploy of deceiving the unthinking by pretending something is its the opposite, ‘freedom is slavery,’ ‘truth is lies.’
Well actually they are communists mostly. They call themselves Anarco-communists but that is a nonsequitor you cannot have a totalitarian anarchist government but that is what you get when you have a bunch of fools getting sucked in.
Antifa was originally a communist organization who like the brown shirts tried to oppose the fascists (two factions of socialism in a death struggle for who would own the world). Originally started back in the 1930’s ?? and relatively recently resurected in Europe and now in America and other western countries.
They are a violent front organization to prepare the field for communism/socialism, by enforcing PC and cutting off free speech and open discussion.
Orwellian “Doublespeak” is back in fashion.
galloping camel, re double-speak, was it evah out of fashion, except with yr independently-minded,trial and error problem solvers, wheel-discoverers, laws of logic and physics discoverers who rescued serfs from poverty and prem-achure death? …Beware yer guru who would enslave yr mind. https://beththeserf.wordpress.com/2019/03/18/57th-edition-serf-under_ground-journal/
Thanks for introducing me to Edward Bernays. He may have understood the “Madness of Crowds” better than most.
It has always bothered me that groups of people can be so convinced of something that they will die (e.g. drink the Koolaid) rather than give up beliefs that seem irrational to the rest of us.
In my lifetime there have been at least five “End of the World” predictions that turned out to be false. There was the Year2K scare. Several cults have suffered death and destruction based on their beliefs.
Today we have AOC claiming we have only 12 years left to save the planet and there are public figures who say they believe her!
AOC wants to enslave your mind and steal your money at the same time.
galloping camel, stealing yr mind is up there with murder, the most heinous crime.

“The urge to save humanity is almost always a false front for the urge to rule.” – H. L. Mencken
She is using the ploy of saving humanity to achieve the goal of enslavement and relieving us of our money.
She’s just not very good at masking her true intent. She’s light on the saving humanity part and heavy on the theft and enslavement parts.
