Oberlin College and the “Culture of Theft”

No one should attend this hellhole. Student journalist: Shoplifting at Gibson’s Bakery was part of Oberlin College’s “Culture of Theft”.

Higher education.

It’s truly astounding that a college would be afraid to support a local store that was the victim of shoplifting. It is deeply depressing that students did not already know that “shoplifting was harmful.”

So how is that kids in the 21st Century don’t know that “Stealing hurts the victim?” I bet they would object if you took money from them.

“[W]e uncovered a sad truth: That the majority of shoplifting in Oberlin is carried out by students…. [because] students just felt like it” — Puts in context testimony that the college wanted a special procedure for student shoplifters and feared backing the bakery would “trigger” a negative student reaction.

Then there is the social justice insanity, in which fried chicken wasn’t served enough, and General Chao’s Chicken was served too much. (Chinese food is cultural appropriation. Or something.)

No one should want to attend Oberlin College and no parent should be willing to pay anything to send their kids their. It is worse than a joke.

Academic Hoax Project Home-run: Woke-version of Mein Kampf

What more can you say. Hoax project gets a woke version of ‘Mein Kampf’ accepted by feminist journal.

The academic hoaxers – James Lindsay, Peter Boghossian, and Helen Pluckrose – have been a bit in the news. They were responsible for the Dog Parks = Rape Culture article, that got a lot of attention, and a few others. But the final article that was published is perhaps the best.

But their biggest coup may be convincing a feminist journal to accept a paper that includes a lengthy section of Adolf Hitler’s Mein Kampf with “fashionable buzzwords switched in.”

Several other papers were accepted by “peer reviewed journals” for publication, but have not been published.

And because the “grievance studies” people have absolutely no sense of humor, these three expect this project to hurt their careers.

The article is a bit long, but it is worth it, even if you have been following some of the outrage.

Quote of the Day: SJW Edition

Any comment I could offer is redundant. SJWs Demand ‘Deus Ex’ Video Game Not Let Gamers Make ‘Immoral’ Decisions | PJ Media

We’ve seen [Social Justice Warriors] demand that fictional entertainment reflect their values, regardless of whether that makes any sense for the specific project. If you don’t like the finished, politically correct product? They scream about what a horrible person you are. (See: Ghostbusters. Or don’t!)
