Well, the fear of losing their jobs or being uncomfortable if student activists such as BLM give them a hard time. Notice these college administrators aren’t afraid of pissing off voters, taxpayers or legislators. Oh, no. They’re afraid of having their names or pics in the news or on FB, being touted as racists or some other -ist by activists who are conducting a Al Sharpton Shakedown. There’s gold in them thar colleges.
The most irritating part of all this is that our own colleges, UK, UK WVU, etc haven’t done a thing to help those of us in Eastern Kentucky who are being hammered by Obama and his coalition of greenie power-grabbers. In fact, our own colleges put out “reports” and “studies” and “papers” about how bad coal is or logging sucks or we’re just a bunch of dumbass Scot-Irish descendants and that explains everything, why we’re dumb or anti-establishment or have bad teeth or whatever. Our newspapers dutifully follow suit. We have the MSM vilifying and mocking us at every whim, seems like somebody should stick up for US..
You know what else I smell here, besides fear? I smell job security for the college administrators, for the relevant faculty and for students of the “Studies” programs who won’t get jobs in anything but taxpayer-subsidized crap like this.
The UL Law School has decided to quit pretending to be neutral and go full progressive. http://www.courier-journal.com/story/opinion/2016/01/13/commentary-uofl-law-school-no-longer-neutral/78655014/
Black History Month honors black achievements. Native American History Month honors American Indian achievements. Hispanic History Month honors Hispanic achievements. White Awareness Month?

I heard this on the Cumberland Highlanders Show on RFD-TV last year. I didn’t recognize it but my husband said it’s a common old British saw. I don’t remember the group who sang it in the Bluegrass version but the Wikipedia link says the song is quite common in Bluegrass music. Here it is, h/t to Maggie’s Farm, which showcased it today and jogged my memory. http://www.maggiesfarm.anotherdotcom.com
Music and lyrics by Henry Work, arrangement and performance by Tom Roush, who has this work, a lesser-known sequel and other works available on a CD, http://tomroush.us
I find it very charming.

This is where I’m at. I left the Dem Party because of all the lies and BS. They’re still lying, aided and abetted by the corrupt media. In fact, I don’t know how electing a GOP prez and retaining power in their hands will necessarily save us because the media will smear them. And of course, I’m not suggesting that the GOP is an honest party or that their politicians are automatically more honest. But the media love the liberals, the liberal Democratic Party. That’s what I want to do, destroy the ability of the media to elect our presidents, our Congress, and dictate public opinion to sway leftward. Why do the media and the liberals want to become Western Europe and Scandinavia?
We knew what Cruz meant, he was dissing the liberal values and smugness of NYC elites. It had nothing to do with 911 when everyone – except extreme lefties – pulled together in support of NYC. Funny that no one got angry when Obama, other Dems and the media delivered contempt on the South, Appalachia or anyone who opposed them. Who apologized for ‘dumb hick racists’ and ‘bitter clingers’? No one, so kiss my grits. http://townhall.com/tipsheet/cortneyobrien/2016/01/15/ny-gov-who-told-conservatives-they-werent-welcome-says-cruz-should-apologize-for-values-comments-n2105186?utm_source=thdailypm&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=nl_pm&newsletterad=
Everything’s fine and if you don’t believe that, you’re one of those ‘dumb hick racist bitter clingers’ who isn’t living in NYC. http://www.donsurber.blogspot.com/2016/01/world-trade-stopped.html#more
It’s amazing to hear liberals attack Trump/Cruz or anyone not-liberal for speaking harshly or in a divisive manner. Where have you been for the last 8 years? The liberal hate, divisiveness, cruelty, socialism, demonization, and elitism have virtually ruined this nation. Trump is tame compared to Obama, Reid, Pelosi, DWS, the NYT or virtually anyone or media identifying as liberal. http://www.wsj.com/articles/obamas-legacy-trump-and-bernie-1452729424
“Hip chic” dictates the hatred of Israel, the acceptance of any Islam behavior, and fervent support of anything pro-Palestinian. Israeli supporters have long complained of the Facebook double standard that allows anti-Semitism and anti-Israeli hatred while shutting down any anti-Palestinian or anti-Islam postings. Facebook denied it so a group tested them by posting identical news in new accounts entitled ‘Stop Israel’ and ‘Stop Palestinians.’ Facebook was forced to admit that, yes, they did react differently. You can imagine how. http://www.algemeiner.com/2016/01/08/facebook-finally-caves-on-anti-israel-hate-pages/#
