Fancypants $63,550-Per-Year College Offers Course Entitled, ‘Is God A White Supremacist?’

SwarthmoreProtest

The guy who teaches this bilge is Tariq al-Jamil. His bio says he “is an expert on medieval Islamic social history and law…”

Swathmore is a full scale social justice college. The faculty and student body strongly advocate against fossil fuels and Israel. The website “What Will They Learn?” gives Swathmore a grade of “D” for their non-existent course requirements.

Via Daily Caller:

Swarthmore College — a politically-correct, leftist hothouse bursting at the seams with wealthy white kids — is offering a religion course this semester entitled “Is God a White Supremacist?”

The one-credit course at the elite liberal arts bastion in the suburbs of Philadelphia will delve into “the interpretive practices that are foundational to the process of ‘whiteness-making’ and the construction of white identity.” The course will address “religious theories justifying racial domination,” “transnational whiteness” and, of course, “evil and the nature of suffering.”

Course readings will include “the biblical interpretation of white supremacist ‘Christian identity’ churches.” The course at the Quaker-founded college will also explore “the Yakub theory of racial formation in the Nation of Islam”

According to The Final Call, Louis Farrakhan’s official newspaper of the Nation of Islam, the Yakub theory postulates that white people first appeared on an island in the Aegean Sea thanks to a 600-year “grafting” effort. “Under the command of a Black scientist named Yakub, the 59,999 Blacks who came with Yakub to the island were placed under a system of mating that was based on skin color, in which only lighter-complexioned babies were allowed to survive.”

The Swarthmore’s professor teaching “Is God a White Supremacist?” course is Tariq al-Jamil, chairman of the Swarthmore religion department and coordinator of the school’s Islamic studies program.

Pathetic cry for attention.

Via Red Alert:

A sorority at the University of Michigan plans to protest incoming President Donald Trump after his Friday inauguration. Their plan? The group intends to take photos of themselves in their panties while ‘marching for women,’ and posting the photos to Instagram.

In an email to all members of their club, obtained by the Young America’s Foundation, the students offered to create personalized “protest panties” for every participant who wants to join the march, for just three dollars. In addition to sending proceeds of the campaign to Planned Parenthood “for a donation of $10 or more,” they will “send you a pic of your panties at the march so you can get a SICK INSTA OUT OF IT #Guaranteed300Likes,” the email reads.

CNN Looking For Reporter To Cover ‘Wave’ Of ‘Fake News’

Truthful_News_Not_Fake_Seal

Yes, it reads like a parody but this is a real (not fake) news story. Here is a link to the non-fake advertisement.

Via The Hill:

CNN, whose coverage has been targeted recently by President-elect Donald Trump, is looking for a reporter to cover “fake news.”

“CNNMoney is expanding its Media team,” a Turner job advertisement reads.

“We’re going to be examining the wave of ‘fake news’ stories and the people behind them, but more than that we’re going to be looking at truth — what happened to it, why so many of us no longer believe it, and where those people are going to get their information instead.”

CNN wants someone with six years of writing and reporting experience who gets “angry every time they see an inaccuracy.”

“This writer should live on the Internet, and be intimately aware of its darkest corners. They should be capable of doing a quick news story, and of spending days or weeks obsessing about a subject,” the ad continues. “They should get angry every time they see any inaccuracy in any story, whether large or small, and whether published by a fake news site or a real one.”

Other qualifications include “debunking myths,” “confronting the ‘real’ media about the role it’s playing,” and “keeping tabs on fake news stories bubbling up around the Internet, and turning around quick articles about them.”

“They should be the kind of person who can’t pass by a single rabbit hole without being desperate to jump in to see where it leads. And they should be able to tell a story that people can’t help reading,” the job description concluded.

No salary is mentioned in the ad.

Sounds good to me…

Via Washington Examiner:

According to a new poll conducted by GovExec.com and the independent Government Business Council, 28 percent of federal workers say they are or at least might be “considering leaving the federal service” because of Donald Trump’s election. This is actually up from 25 percent who said the same in February when asked about the possibility that Trump might be elected.

Fourteen percent said that yes, they are considering it, and the same share said “maybe” they are. Of this combined 28 percent, just over half said they are “eligible for retirement and [might] retire earlier than planned,” meaning they might be serious about this.

Um, you can’t impeach someone when they’re not even President yet.

Via Daily Caller:
