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.”‘

Universities warned of ‘creeping segregation’ as Sheffield launches LGBT-only student halls

UK Universities have been given a warning about an emerging trend of what is referred to as “creeping segregation” on campus as University of Sheffield became the nation’s first to offer student housing where only gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender students are allowed to live.

Sheffield University announced it will provide a number of LGBT-only student apartments in September to provide “safe space for students to be themselves”. The university has had 30 enquiries so far and already has plans to expand the number available for next year.

The move has been prompted by concerns from student union leaders that gay and trans students will be targets of “bullying and harassment” in mainstream accommodation. A report from surveys of this year’s under graduates found that 42 percent of LGBT students claim they are forced to conceal their sexuality at university, and 33 percent have received “negative comments” from other students.

But the director of the country’s largest student accommodation service criticised the plan as a form of “segregation” which will ghettoise gay youth and divide student communities.

The Daily Stirrer thinks taxpayer’s (whose money funds universities) have a right to expect university students to concentrate on their academic life, their sex lives are nobody else’s concern. If the current generation of Gay BLTs did not spend so much time getting in people’s faces and yelling about their sexuality they might find they get a better reception from the heterosexual community.

Jew hating Leftie Students Union In New Anti-Semitism Row

Those anti Semites of the The National Union of Students (NUS) are at it again. Apparently the same kind of loonytoons thinking that informs the politically correct left that it’s culturally enriching for a white woman to be raped by a middle eastern or African immigrant, that its fine for Muslims to beat their wives (who are just pieces of property anyway, and that while its fine for Muslim women to run around with a ten over their heads, Christian women may not have a crucifix visible about their person because ‘Muslims might find it offensive,’ seem to have been embroiled in controversies over anti Semitism for most of the past couple of years.

Hypocrisy and double standards are the stock in trade of the ‘new left’ of course and the anti – Semitism of Labour voters and other younger lefties (University dumbed down airheads who are too historically illiterate to be aware of the role Britain’s Jewish communities played in establishing the Labour Party)who are involved in a fresh anti-Semitism row after three candidates either running for or seeking re-election to executive positions in the Union were exposed as having made offensive comments.

The problem stems from the binary nature of the left wing mindset. As we have all seen, to these millennials any suggestion that there should be controls on immigration amount to racism, criticism of a homosexual, no matter how appalling their behaviour, is homophobic, and pointing out that there are biological differences between men and women is sexist.

It is not hard then to understand how easily these people convince themselves that every single follower of the Jewish religion, or even secular Jews who are ‘of the blood’ but not religious, is personally responsible for the way Palestinians have been treated in Israel.

Not only are the millennials of the NUS apparently ignorant of the long tradition of support for socialism among British Jews, they are also unaware that prior to the creation of the state of Israel after World War Two, the Muslims of The Ottoman Empire had been treating Palestinian Jews like vermin for a thousand years. The hatreds that fuel inter racial and inter – tribal conflicts in that part of the world are acient and far too complex for meddling westerners to understand. but that does not deter the wannabe leaders of the national Union of Students. And went that binary mindset analyses the problem those complexities are reduced to the level of guys in white hats and guys in black hats.

In online posts one current member of the union’s National Executive Council shared a video mocking Jews as having big noses and being tight with money, while another publicly suggested Jewish people are tight-fisted and said he wanted to destroy Israel. And these are the people who got their knickers in a twist about the Romanian former tennis champion Ilie Nastase saying something in mildly poor taste about the mixed race child Serena Williams and he white boyfriend will welcome into the world during the summer.

A third, seeking election to the union’s national executive in elections being held this week, wrote an offensive Twitter message referring to Jews and using the phrase “Heil Hitler”.

It gets worse. During her time as a student at the University of Birmingham, Malia Bouattia, the current NUS president, was involved in hosting a play called “Seven Jewish Children” that has been denounced by both Jews and non Jews as anti-Semitic.

Ms Bouattia, who is seeking re-election, was accused last year of “outright racism” by the House of Commons Home Affairs Select Committee over comments she made about Israel. She had claimed the University of Birmingham (UK) was a “Zionist outpost” and criticised “Zionist-led media outlets”.

The revelations come amid accusations of rampant anti-Semitism on university campuses, whipped up by Muslim extremists according to some British students with no religious affiliation. A survey by the NUS last month found a quarter of Jewish students in the UK live in fear of an anti-Semitic hate crime, while two thirds who had been the victim of hate crime said they were targeted because of their faith.

The NUS annual conference, where national officers for the coming year will be elected, begins in Brighton on Tuesday. Despite the deepening worries about anti-Semitism, a number of candidates seeking office and expected to win because of their left wing, politically correct platforms, have a history of making anti-Jewish and anti-Israeli comments.

UK University Offers Tutorials On ‘Dealing With Right-Wing Attitudes in Class’

It has long been known that our universities are the petri dishes of the Cultural Marxist revolution. No doubt those neo – fascist who ‘identify’ as left wing think of such places as crucibles of their revolution, but a crucible is a vessel in which extreme heat is used to create altered states and Cultural Marxism is cold, slimy and  toxic, the kind of thing creepy scientists intent on causing mayhem would create in a secret laboratory concealed in the empty magma chamber of an extinct volcano. And the lefties, with their anti – liberty, anti – free speech, anti – democratic agenda are getting creepier.

It the latest example of how close to Stalinism leftists now are, the University of Sussex has been getting a lot of well earned flak for suppressing right-wing points of view after hosting a seminar purporting to teach students how to “deal with right-wing attitudes in the classroom”.

Critics claim the seminar, organised by a leading professor at the University, reveals the systemic political bias in British higher education.

Spokespersons for the National Union of brainwashed morons  Students (NUS) mocked the claims however, suggesting the right wingers referred to are those extremists identified in government anti-terror programs were the real persecuted group on campuses. This is exposed as being disingenuous by the facts that:
a) Islamic extremists have never been referred to as right wing
b) Left wing students and dossers have always referred toi criticism of Islamic extremism   as ‘Islamophobia’ and generally shown themselves to be well disposed towards Islamic hate preachers, while willing to deny opponents of Islamic fundamentalism

“Boohoo, a right winger feels marginalised. Meanwhile, activists are served with injunctions and referred to Prevent”, wrote Shelly Asquith, NUS Vice President of Welfare, on Twitter.

Although the NUS claims to speak for millions of students in the UK, most members support only extends to paying their subs in order to benefit from prices in the union bar. In fact several universities have recently disaffiliated from the Union after they elected a radical left wing president who has been found guilty of anti-Semitism in an internal report.

Not every staff member or student representative at Sussex is a nutter. Dan Hough, a politics professor, posted a picture of a poster for the event on Twitter, captioned: “Perhaps we should just talk about, analyse and then evaluate all positions in any given debate, no?” Such reasonable attitudes are not fashionable in the UK education / indoctrination system however,

Professor Alan Smithers, head of the center for education and employment at Buckingham University, told The Telegraph it is “alarming” that such workshops were taking place.

“The university is letting its prejudices show if it is conflating right-wing opinions with homophobia and racial prejudice,” he said.

“It is very sad the way universities are going. Within universities there has always been a spectrum of views and one of the pleasures of universities is having them rub against each other.

“That is what university is about – enabling its students to think widely and critically and come to their own views crucially backed by evidence.”

This is correct, but as our blogs have shown again and again, this demonization of non – Marxist/globalist views can be traced to organisations linked to the billionaire financial trader George Soros who has quite openly stated his aim is to destroy western civilisation and create a global, authoritarian government. And so the capitalism hating leftie students have duped themselves into hating the uber capitalist.

Harry Howard, a third-year History and Politics student, said he was “shocked and angry” to find there is a “worrying aversion” to right wing opinions at the university, adding, “universities should be intellectually diverse, rather than echo chambers of left wing opinion”.

Such Nice People Live On The Left Of The Political Spectrum

Left wing politics, once the politics of freedom, individualism and self – determination has increasingly over the past few decades become the politics of hate, envy, bitterness, hypocrisy and authoritarianism. Left wing politics has now developed a level of intolerance for those who challenge its idiotic assumptions or moral superiority, it appears to be charging headlong towards fascism.

Here’s the latest example:

from Breitbart London.

Independent’ Student Paper Tells UKIP MEP to ‘F**k His Mother’

the offending tweet to ukip's paul nuttall

Britain’s UK Independence Party (UKIP) has received abusive responses to a press release issued today. A student ‘journalist’ working at the self-described “independent national student newspaper” the Student Times, which has a circulation of around 150,000 every fortnight encouraged the UKIP official to engage in incest.

Paul Nuttall, who is the deputy leader of UKIP stated in a press release: “Universities are more concerned about making money than ever before, and I am seriously concerned that by relaxing their entry requirements many students that would never have normally been offered a place will find it too difficult and there’ll be a lot dropping out over the next 12 months.”

Instead of taking interest, as a responsible newspaper editor would, UKIP received the following reply from the news@studenttimes.org e-mail address:

“You can tell Paul Nuttall to go and fuck his mother.”

One UKIP staffer replied, “Charmed”, to which another reply came:

“It must be really lonely working in Europe working for a bunch of fascist wankers. Now take us off your mailing list prick”.

Speaking to Breitbart London, Nuttall said of the incident: “I was astonished that the correspondent asked me to indulge in something not only unpalatable but also illegal.

“I can’t believe a reputable student magazine is apparently run by foul mouthed privileged left wing students who think that is an appropriate way to respond to a press release they do not agree with.

“It speaks volumes about the state of education in this country and his or her grasp of the Queen’s English. I can only hope that when the anonymous correspondent from the Student Times grows up, gets a job and has responsibilities they will look back and be thoroughly embarrassed by what they have done.”

Still wondering why the Labour party is full of infantile, idiotic sheeple who bleat about equal rights for paedophiles, want to invite foreign murderers, rapists, people traffickers, pimps, muggers and extortionists as well as terrorists to come to Britain and carry on their odious careers safe in the knowledge that ‘yooman rights’ law will protect them from justice? Don’t…..The morons who produce the kind of hate filled, extremist shit in this student rag will be the next generation of Labour MPs.

So let’s sum up: Things you are voting against if you vote Labour:

Democracy, free speech, good manners, tolerance, respect, inteligence,

Things you are voting for if you vote Labour:

Equal rights for paedophiles, sharia law, more immigration, higher taxes, hate, more hate, still more hate.

You know what to do.

Join The New Lesbian Army

University students in Canada continue to face a bizarre government / politically correct thought police campaign to make them homosexuals. At the University of Winnipeg, newly enrolled students were invited by The Lesbian Rangers Group (founded 2005) to participate in a lesbian “Reorientation Week

They were asked to become “rangers” with the “Lesbian National Parks and Services,” the brainchild of local “performing artists” Shauna Dempsey and Lorri Millan. (follow link above to see a poster which will demostrate why these two hairy arsed rug munchers became lesbians.)

Nobody know quite what Lesbian Rangers do but as The Park Ranger in the cartoons had to stop Yogi Bear stealing visitors picnic baskets, presumable their function is to patrol the campus and stop male students getting hold of girls doner kebabs

The two wimmin had a “field office” in the university art gallery, staffed by a university employee in ranger uniform. They took part in pancake breakfasts, barbecues and interviews on campus radio.

“Lesbian Rangers salute and welcome you!” their brochure says. “Here you will encounter new, even life-changing lifestyles and ideas. These may challenge you in uncomfortable ways.”

The university art gallery, the Manitoba Arts Council and the Canada Council, sponsored this tasteless attack on heterosexuality to the tune of about $10,000. This doesn’t include thousands of taxpayer dollars already expended on their promotional video and “Field Guide” which includes examples of lesbian “flora and fauna.”

Their message: “Homosexuality is natural. Question the heterosexual model. Heterosexuality is a social invention.”

The more I learn about what goes on in universities the more wise my decision to avoid the socialist shit holes and do higher education by distance learning looks, but I am aware that when I was young students were encouraged to question authority. Today, they are pressured to question their sexuality.

Does the LNPS actually exist? Is this exercise in brainwashing masquerading as art, propaganda disguised as parody real or is it a pathetic, sophomoronic attempt to shock? Is the idea that eventually the outrageous becomes accepted.

The Lesbian Rangers don’t actually work in any parks. But the artists claim to have hundreds of junior members called “Eager Beavers.”

Their video (online) is full of such double entendres and sexual innuendo on a par with anything a Carry On film could throw at us. The two “bush women” leave “no stone or student unturned.” It’s a “lesbian-eat-lesbian-world.” Knots are practiced in various bondage positions. Their website is called www.fingerinthe dyke.ca

In the promotional video they fine a heterosexual male $100 for wearing a lewd T-shirt (“Blow me”) and intimidate him when he protests. He is reprimanded for “threatening the lesbian environment.” Well I did say it was sophomoronic.

Canadian Lesbians are just a few government grants shy of having a paramilitary organization, a cross between the Girl Scouts and Hitler’s Brown Shirts. (Hitler’s SA was notoriously homosexual.)

This is a true news report, entirely unembellished. Nobody could make this stuff up.

The Triumphs Of Higher Education

Who says education is going down the pan (well we do for a start).

Higher education is still the portal to great success, fame and wealth as these examples show …

The PPE student who who believes “Urban Guerillas” are primates trained to murder people.

The girl with a Desmond* in Travel & Tourism who thought Denmark was “down south, next to Cornwall”.

A group of 5 University graduates (!!) who unanimously agreed, after a five minute discussion, that Belgium was a part of France not an independent country.

There are just three examples that sprang to mind.

… yes, if you are a young person hoping to become wealthy and famous in comedy, get yourself a degree.

* Desmond = 2.2 (Desmond Tutu)
