Let Children Starve Rather Than Eat Meat Say Veggie Fascists

 

Pupils at a new school are only allowed to eat vegetarian lunches and are banned from bringing in their own food. The veggie policies at The Swan School in Summertown, Oxford, have been criticised by parents, one of whom said her daughter ‘came home hungry’ after the academy opened on Monday.

The Oxford state school has a completely vegetarian canteen and pupils have no alternative but to eat the hot meal on offer, although there are a couple of meat or fish options available for snacks during break time.

ANOTHER Mum who did not want to be named told tabloid paper The Sun: ‘The only thing about this school is the vegetarian food – my daughter came home today very hungry. I’ve heard that a lot of children were very hungry as well – there should be option at dinner time [to] eat meat, I’ve never known a school to be like this.’

Options on the Swan School’s menu include lentil lasagne, minted pea and feta frittata and Quorn sausage and potato bake. Headteacher Kay Wood said the main reason to serve vegetarian meals is to serve better quality for the same money, reduce carbon footprint and allow students of all faiths to sit together

Parents were made aware of the vegetarian policy prior to admission and the menu is believed to be a first for an Oxford state school.

She stressed the decision to provide vegetarian meals ‘isn’t a judgement of people who eat meat or an attempt to make our students vegetarian.’

Ms Wood added: ‘Packed lunches are not banned because the students might bring in meat – we don’t allow them because we want all the children and staff to eat together and engage at lunchtime. Which suggests to us they are as dead set against individualism as they are against healthy lunches for teenagers. Authoritarian wankers.

But Veggie fascism is not confined to Britain. In France, a new law has just been passed requiring all schools to offer at least one fully vegetarian lunch
day per week. But how long to we think it will stay at one per week? Until Monsieur Macron next thinks a bit more virtue signalling with help prop up his abysmal poll ratings?

Pupils Shut Out Of School Because They Refuse To Wear Gender Neutral Uniforms

Overshadowed somewhat by the idiocies in Parliament this week as Remain supporting, democratically elected MPs try to overturn the democratically expressed wish of the people and keep the UK in The Fourth Reich politely known as the European Union, the idiocy of politically correct, far left authoritarianism in education goes on.

Students Prevented From Attending UK School Because They Refuse to Wear “Gender Neutral” Uniforms

School told girls they could no longer wear skirts.

written by

Female students at a school in the UK were prevented by officials and police from attending class because they refused to comply with a new “gender neutral” uniform policy.
Around 100 students protested outside the gates of Priory School in Lewes in response to a letter sent at the end of the summer advising they would be mandated to wear trousers at all times.

The school claimed that the policy change was put in place to “address inequality,” and be “inclusive,” but students and parents were outraged.

Students carrying signs that read “choice” were turned away at the gate, with police officers aiding school officials in the dispute.

“A gender neutral uniform would allow boys to wear skirts and girls to wear skirts and both to wear trousers,” said parent Sheila Cullen.

Others complained that they were being made to pay out over £100 for another uniform that would last just 9 months.

Maria Caulfield MP for Lewes asserted it was “ridiculous” to tells girls they couldn’t wear skirts.

“It is political correctness gone mad,” she said.

Far Left Fascist Students Force US College To Ban Free Speech

“Far left fascists, isn’t that a contradiction?” you might well ask. Many people might think so, but fascism is not a political philosphy in the way that communism, socialism, liberalism or conservatism are, it is about centralised power, in fact the word derives from a latin word, Fasces, which is a symbol of unbreakable authority. Fascism is authoritarianism, and politics of right or left can be authoritarian. In this article, from National Interest blog an example of the fascism of left wind students is presented:

Williams College Kowtows to Students Saying ‘Free Speech Harms’

authored by Jonathan Butcher

In 1755, Ephraim Williams Jr. led colonial forces and some 200 Mohawk allies into battle against French and Indian troops near Lake George, New York. But Williams marched into a deadly ambush.

He was killed in the fight, and his troops were driven back, suffering tremendous losses. But history records that those under his command fought bravely and made “a very handsome retreat.”

Today, the college that bears Williams’ name has been ambushed by its own students, and school officials have beaten a hasty and inglorious retreat.

At Williams College in Massachusetts, biology professor Dr. Luana Maroja wrote online last year that she was concerned about student and administrator attitudes regarding free speech.

She gathered more than 100 faculty signatures on a petition calling for the school to adopt what is known as the “Chicago Principles,” a statement in favor of free expression developed by the University of Chicago.

More than 60 schools have endorsed this statement, a welcome response to the disrupted events and other nonsense that have plagued universities around the country.

Some Williams students will have none of it. Maroja says that more than a dozen of them barged into a faculty meeting last November holding signs such as “free speech harms” and saying faculty were trying to “kill” the students.

 

After that, tensions escalated. The College Fix reports that a professor subsequently “threatened violence” if Williams adopted the Chicago statement. All this because Maroja dared to promote the idea that Williams should maintain a “climate of mutual respect.”

Williams is a private school, so the First Amendment doesn’t automatically apply to institutional activity there as it does on public college campuses. Still, students should expect that the school would want to promote the civil exchange of ideas.

And when discussions devolve into threats of violence, it’s small wonder that students opt to pursue truth via hysterical rhetoric and physical confrontation rather than through discussion and debate.

If you expected the college administration to stand up for free speech and mutual respect, think again. Earlier this week, Williams’ officials waved a white flag and announced the school will not adopt the Chicago statement but draft “speaker invitation guidelines.”

Turning away from principles protecting free speech adds to suspicions that there is a free speech crisis—or worse—at Williams.

Last month, the U.S. Department of Education launched an investigation of the college after its student government denied a pro-Israel student group official status.

As activity on campuses around the U.S. in recent years demonstrates, when individuals cannot express themselves without fear of harm, oppressors will threaten—and commit—harm.

A recent survey of college students found that more than half of respondents say shouting down speakers is “always” or “sometimes” acceptable. Sixteen percent of respondents say it is “always” or “sometimes” acceptable to use violence to stop a speech protest or rally.

These responses are disturbing. Civil society—life in the office, in your neighborhood, at your child’s soccer game—depends on people tolerating those who do not share their beliefs, not trying to silence them through intimidation or violence. The American dream dies if we live in fear of persecution.

Williams officials should take seriously the threats posed to the next generation of adults that come from limiting the ideas that can be considered on campus.

The school should require students to attend sessions on free speech during freshman orientation—and explain that hiding from ideas with which you disagree is a poor strategy for life.

New policies for public universities in Alabama, Arizona, Georgia, North Carolina, and Wisconsin now serve as examples of how to protect everyone’s freedom of expression in a campus community.

These policies affirm the idea that anyone should be allowed to protest or demonstrate in public areas as long as they do not prevent others from doing the same. Moreover, they stipulate that their public universities must be prepared to penalize individuals who silence others.

Oxford Academics Turn On Gay BLT Propagandists For Pushing Unscientific Claims

lgbt rights protest
Gay, Lesbian and Trans rights protestor holds a placard making a typically idiotic statement – human rights apply to all humans, trans-rights are the infantile demands of self pitying losers.

‘More than 30 Oxford academics have blasted Stonewall for pushing ‘tendentious and antiscientific claims’ in the trans awareness training it gives to universities according to a report in The Sunday Times (a more sensationalized version of the same story appears in The Daily Mail if you are blocked by The Times paywall).

The professors and lecturers have taken issue with Oxford University’s compulsory training programme on Gay, Lesbian and Transgender issues, that includes dogmatic statements about permissible attitudes “towards Gay, Lesbian and especiall Transgender rights, including such unmitigated wank as “gender is how people interpret and view themselves.” The Oxford academics expressed their opposition to such unscientific nonsense being forced on teaching staff, research fellows and students in a letter passed to The Sunday Times.

They call for universities to sever links with Stonewall and other LGBT charities until and unless those organisations dump their fascistic attempts to restrict freedom of though and commit to ‘fully supporting academic freedom of thought’.

Academics are also being bullied by student groups to withdraw invitations to “transphobic speakers,” i.e. anyone who do not accept “that trans people are the gender they say they are” or maintain that gender is determined by our biological sex rather that “feelings”.

They fear the new rules university managers have accepted after being bullied by Gay BLT lobbying could see staff lose their jobs, and that they contravene the roght of free speech.

Modern history professor Selina Todd is quoted by the Sunday Times as saying: “[This] is really pushing an agenda which is dogmatic and completely overruling freedom of speech… I am very scared that academics will start to lose their jobs.

“I feel uncomfortable. I’ve told my employer that I feel vulnerable and I’ve had students say they feel intimidated by what’s going on at this campus.”

Oxford and Cambridge last year spent £55,000 between them on LGBT training so staff are better equipped to help students who may be struggling. According to a NUS LGBTQ+ report from 2014, just 20 per cent of trans students feel completely safe on campus, which begs questions just how many of these mental cases are there at Oxford. One in three trans students said they had experienced bullying or harassment – while 51 per cent have seriously considered dropping out of their course. The Daily Stirrer does not see that as any loss to either the university or society in general were that to happen.

And what are these trans students studying for anyway, degrees in self pity?

Students censored – An Academic Community In A Crisis Of Collectivism.

Guest Post:I called for diversity of thought. My peers compared me to a neo-Nazi.


As I took part in a recent student leadership board meeting for the Department of Political Science at Boston University, a group that works to advise faculty on ways to improve, I offered some advice: the department could use more intellectual diversity.

I suggested more debates in the classroom, as opposed to what I had witnessed in my three years at the school, that being an assumption during class that everyone agrees.

I broached my idea after I had sat and respectfully listened to the ideas of others for an hour, but my peers, and a professor and an administrator in the room, were not about to return the favor.

One student chided me that “debate” was too aggressive of a word, that I should use “discussion” instead. Another student, a College Democrat in the room, then compared me to a well-known peer from Boston University who is often regarded as a neo-Nazi and who went to the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, noting “he has sat here in these seats asking for intellectual diversity as well.”

I felt shocked and insulted. I waited to see if either the professor or administrator or any of the other students in the room would defend me. None did. One student suggested conservatives shouldn’t major in political science at Boston University, as they’d have a hard time. The room erupted in laughter.

I wish I could say I was surprised. But after years of experiencing liberal bias, both at Boston University as well as Lehigh University, where I attended before I transferred, it felt like just another day on campus.

To that end, there are plenty of anecdotes I could supply. Here are just a few.

As a freshman, or as the administration likes to say to avoid being sexist— as a “first-year”— I was required to take an English class. My instructor was a teaching assistant, but insisted we call her professor. The morning after President Trump won, she dismissed class early because she could not stop crying. Later that day, she sent out an email giving us information about a designated “safe space” on campus to commiserate the election results. Nevermind that my university has an entire police department to protect it.

During a course I took on political theory, my professor dedicated the entire chapter on fascism to President Trump. He constantly referred to Trump as a fascist, and brought up the Mueller investigation during each class session.

In my statistics class, my professor made an entire exam question that necessitated a final conclusion that Fox News is not a reliable news source. The chi-square test is a statistic that measures the “goodness of fit” between how well an observed distribution fits with the expected distribution. We were given the average amount of gun deaths that occur per year in the United States and the average amount of terrorist attacks that are perpetrated toward Americans per year. We were also given the amount of times CNN, MSNBC, ABC and Fox News reported on each of these issues, and the idea is that one would expect the news organizations to report on the respective issues a proportional amount. When one worked out the math, Fox News’ reporting ended up having the worst goodness of fit, and we had to write that meant they were the least reliable and most unbalanced.

In other courses, I’ve been forced to include my “pronouns” in my introductions at the beginning of the term. After revealing I’m Catholic, I’ve been asked if my priests ever “microaggressed” me. I’ve been told by a climate-alarmist professor that I would face consequences if I ever brought single-use plastic into his classroom.

Were these experiences kind of annoying because I just want to get my degree and not feel like I was sitting in on my professors’ therapy sessions? Yes. Do I feel oppressed? Not even close.

These experiences have given me a beautiful thing — they’ve helped ground me in my conservative beliefs. I’ve always had these values in me, but never cared to dig into them until they felt endangered.

The more my professors and peers mocked, challenged and disputed conservatism, the more time I spent studying and learning the counterarguments against their arguments. I watched videos, read books, listened to podcasts to hear another perspective, and even helped start a Young Americans for Freedom chapter.

Because of my experiences on campus, I have become the proud conservatarian I am today. To my professors and peers, I am certain this was not what you had intended, but thank you anyway.

Comedian ‘of minority status’ refused gig when asked to sign’behavioural agreement’.

 

Comedian Konstantin Kisin turned down a lucrative university student union gig after being asked to sign a “behavioural agreement” restricting what he could do jokes about. The entertainer was warned about a “zero tolerance policy” on topics including racism, sexism and transphobia.

He had been invited to perform at the School of African and Oriental Studies (SOAS) in London,in an event  organised by university society Unicef on Campus. Konstantin told BBC Radio 1 Newsbeat the experience reflects a growing trend of free speech becoming stifled by politically correct attitudes on university campuses across the UK.

The group has since apologised and the Students’ Union says it “believes fully in freedom of speech”.

He shared the “behavioural agreement form” online, saying the title “nearly made me puke. I just think it reflects an attitude among a group of people, people at university particularly, where it seems that they have become places of indoctrination rather than learning,” he said.

“Students are being taught to prevent offence rather than to seek truth and pursue experiences.

“Universities used to be all about that, but now it seems they’re places where students are being taught to be woke. I think it reflects a broader issue, where increasingly there are people who value safety, or what they perceive to be safety.”

The full list of topics listed by the organisers were “racism, sexism, classism, ageism, ableism, homophobia, biphobia, transphobia, xenophobia, Islamophobia or anti-religion or anti-atheism”.

The contract said: “It does not mean that these topics cannot be discussed. But it must be done in a respectful and non-abusive way.”‘

Schools Advised to Alert Social Services if Parents Stop Sons from Wearing Skirts

Council guidelines have advised schools that staff may need to alert social services if parents dismiss a “gender questioning” child’s demand to “transition”.
Brighton and Hove City Council’s “Trans Inclusion Schools Toolkit” tells teachers “it may be necessary and advisable to activate safeguarding procedures” if worried about a child’s “wellbeing and or safety” when faced with a parent who says, “I refuse to allow my son to change his name or wear skirts.”

As The Telegraph pointed out on Thursday, the Department for Education’s (DfE) statutory guidance says that staff should refer a child to social services or police if the institution’s safeguarding lead has concerns about a child’s welfare.

Seems to us its schoolteachers that children need protection from rather than parents. These brainwashed idiots should not be allowed anywhere near young children the moment it is suspected they might use their position to advance an anto social, far left agenda.
