Some Pigs Are More Diverse Than Others

Compiled from wire reports.

"The lifeblood of any strong university is its diversity of ideas which allows for the environment necessary to educate and train young learners and advance the boundaries of knowledge," said a statement released Tuesday by university spokesman Peter Caughey. "Debate is a fundamental characteristic of a university."

The university's Board of Regents planned to meet in an emergency session Thursday to discuss Churchill, who resigned as chairman of the university's department of ethnic studies this week.

Also under discussion will be the new CU effort to diversify various departments, among them the besieged ethnic studies department, and strengthen the on-campus "...diversity of ideas which allows for the environment necessary to educate and train young learners and advance the boundaries of knowledge.."

"We're very excited about the round of interviews we've scheduled," says spokesman Caughey. "Dr. Thomas Woods, author of the "Politically Incorrect Guide to American History," has agreed to head up the new Anglo-Celtic curriculum in the ethnic studies department."

"In order to support him in this mission, CU is expected to offer a tenured position after a pro-forma interview to the Reverend Pete Peters, who will offer a number of post-graduate courses in the Christian Identity movement."

The syllabus for the first proposed course, Critical Issues in Caucasian Ethnography, proposes an investigation into Yahweh's creation of "a single race in his own image - the White Race. These are the Chosen People. The message of the Bible, both Old and New testaments, is a message only for the White People. Only White People have souls, or have a hope of salvation. "

"We've asked the undergraduate population to stop referring to the course as Honky 101," Mr. Caughey replied in response to a question on campus reaction to the new courses. "Honky is a insensitive and hurtful term, and its use does not promote the healthy communication needed for the advancement of diversity in a collegial environment. Why some Caucasian professors have been so affected by this hate speech term that they have been forced to "pass" as members of other races for years in an attempt to maintain their self-esteem. "

Ward Churchill, former head of the CU Ethnic Studies department, welcomed the addition of Christian Identity scholarship to the department, approvingly quoting from published CI works on the ties between the United States and Israel and their relationship to the World Trade Center attacks of September 11th, 2001.

“The United States has looked the other way while the Jews have murdered hundreds of Palestinians, and stolen land from them,” Churchill read. “We’ve bombed Arab country’s like Baghdad because Hussein invaded its neighbor, yet our country looks away from atrocities done by the Jews....Our ties with the state of Israel are what brought on this act; this is mere retribution on [the] part of the Arabs because of these strong ties with Israel.”

"These people...they've got their heads screwed on right," said Churchill. "I look forward to many late night bull session with them over a healthy cup of sumacade.

Other prospective hires expected to help strengthen campus diversity in the new, expanded University of Colorado are; Walid Rabah, for Semitic studies; Seiichi Ota, Women's Studies; and Lee H.O. Smith, Geography.

Rumors that CU had contacted leading members of NAMBLA to teach a new course in the Human Sexuality and Reproduction curriculum were neither confirmed nor denied by press time.

First time visitor to House Hraka? Wondering if everything we produce could possibly be as brilliant/stupid/evil/pedantic/insipid/inspired as the post you just read? Check out the Hraka Essentials, the (mostly) reader-selected guide to Hraka's best posts, and decide for yourself.

"We’ve bombed Arab country’s like Baghdad"... Baghdad is a country? Prof. Churchill needs to take a few classes....

Manufacturing a weak integrity argument to justify free speech violations...

It started in a federal Court in Pittsburgh and has moved quickly to Colorado Universtity and Iraq. It's a stretch, but political hacks have besieged first amendment free speech protections.

They attempt to combine a provacative essay comparing victims of 911 with Nazi criminals and an emotionally charged General's comments on war, questioning whether such is permissible when the comments may cause damaged to an institution's integrity.


Because in a Pittsburgh federal court a well connected corporate crony has suggested the novice argument, and the legal question is waddling without any legal precedent in need of an activist court.

Thus the current unexplained campaign against “free speech” appears to be little more than a Madison Avenue scheme to control any discussion of the President’s desire to privatize higher education.

That is, a number of for-profit colleges have faced inquiries, lawsuits and other actions calling into question the way they inflate enrollment to mislead/increase the value of their parent company’s stock.

In the last year, the Career Education Corporation of Hoffman Estates, Ill., has faced lawsuits, from shareholders and students, contending that, among other things, its colleges have inflated enrollment numbers. In addition, F.B.I. agents raided 10 campuses run by ITT Educational Services of Carmel, Ind., looking for similar problems.

But in a Pittsburgh federal court there is a bigger can of worms.

Kaplan, Inc., is wholly own by the Washington Post Company. For-profit postsecondary education has turned the company around and individuals far more powerful than Martha Steward have made millions. However, there is a nominal “Watergate” styled federal court proceeding (scandal) involving campus “free speech,” that could expose the administration’s violation of public trust

In short, I provided the S.E.C., Department of Education, and federal courts information that appears to prove Kaplan inflated the Concord School of Law enrollment, telling investors that the “flagship” of its higher education division has as many as 600 to 1000 or more students.

I also provided evidence to prove apparent violations of sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Exchange Act and Rule 10b-5 promulgated thereunder.

However, in an attempt to protect important icons of the Washington and New York financial/political circle, hacks have been hired to stir a free speech controversy.

But even Stan Chess (En Passant) innocently questioned the obvious - a clear violation of the federal securities laws.

“Kaplan’s Concord School of Law says it’s one of the largest law schools in the country, yet for each administration only about 25 of its graduates sit for the bar exam. What happens to the hundreds of other students in each class?”

What are you willing to do?
