And if anyone would know, it would be this ‘ousted’ Prof. Watch him try to talk sense to Congress.
The center-left former professor Bret Weinstein, found himself at the heart of the Evergreen State controversy last year.
If you missed it, or have forgotten, that was where he refused to let minority students tell him that he, being white, could not show up at work on a particular ‘protest’ day, and which eventually led to an armed takeover of the school administration, including a hostage situation was testifying before Congress about the current state of colleges.
Weinstein, however, warned against simply characterizing the demonstrations as a free speech crisis, asserting far more pernicious problems lurk beneath that surface.
“Is there a free speech crisis on college campuses? One can certainly make that argument, but that portrayal is at least as misleading as it is informative,” he said. “What is occurring on college campuses is about power and control—speech is impeded as a last resort, used when people or groups fail to self-censor in response to a threat of crippling stigma and the destruction of their capacity to earn.”

“These tools are being used to unhook the values that bind us together as a nation: equal protection under the law, the presumption of innocence, a free marketplace of ideas, the concept that people should be judged by the content of their character rather than the color of their skin,” he added.
According to Weinstein, the wave of activist demonstrations “functions much more like a cult, in which the purpose is only understood by the leaders, and the rest have been seduced into a carefully architected fiction.”

Rules For Radical Christians is not a survival devotional designed to help the young Christian adult limp through life. Rather, it is a road-tested, dominion blueprint that will equip the young adult with leadership skills and sufficient motivation to rise to a place of influence in an overtly non-Christian culture. Rules For Radical Christians gives the reader the keys to become strategically equipped to move into an anti-theistic environment and effectively influence it for the glory of God.
What makes America so different from other nations? Other nations are built around regimes or systems. But America was built from on ideas. From a blank slate.
Built on ideas that are DANGEROUS to tyrants.
That we have God-Given Rights, like Life, Liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
Dangerous ideas. Like this one: the people, when threatened, have a God-Given right to stand up in defiance of any government that dares threaten any of those rights.
There’s a men’s version…
And a women’s version, too…
Because in America, the bros AND the ladies BOTH have a rich history of badass rowdiness.
