Silver linings

Of course, it wasn't Wilson's racist thinking that was the problem, it was his globalism:
Princeton has stripped the name of 28th President Woodrow Wilson from a college and public policy school due to his 'racist thinking.'

Princeton University President Christopher Eisgruber announced on Saturday the institution will remove Wilson's name from its public policy school and a residential college.

'On my recommendation, the board voted to change the names of both the School of Public and International Affairs and Wilson College,' Eisgruber said in a statement.

He added: 'the trustees concluded that Woodrow Wilson's racist thinking and policies make him an inappropriate namesake for a school or college whose scholars, students, and alumni must stand firmly against racism in all its forms.'
That's quite the responsibility for the alumni, given the obligations imposed upon them. It's got to be exhausting standing firmly against racism in all its forms every day.

I am a bit conflicted yes Wilson was evil for getting us involved in WW1 and his promotion of globalism, but his condemnation wasn't for the right reason.

I watched a Mike Rowe interview earlier today where he talked about how moving class lectures to an online format made a class that would cost thousands free of charge - this will be the future for learning. This and all of these recent rumblings over "racism" makes me wonder if the university bubble is about to burst.

I think it's terrific they've removed Wilson's name. Of course they're doing it to genuflect to the nonwhite minions, but traitors are worse than open enemies, and Wilson was a globalist traitor. In a conflict of White vs. nonwhite, I will side with the White. In a conflict between a GoodWhite or a Globalist and a nonwhite, I will aim for the traitor first. Besides, mourning cultural symbols based on a fictitious history of the country when one's entire race is openly slated for removal is a cart/horse issue.

Wilson was born in 1856, and therefore inescapably was "racist." I wonder why we don't drive the name of anyone born before 1946 or so. The 60s being the time when we suddenly decided adults should be not racist.

I don't wonder anymore. Because there's no rationale to the PC blacklisting craze. The commissars flail around, tethered only to fashion and their fickle emotions.

Plus, there's the joy of dangling the sword over people's heads. Even the dead tend to stay in line when they don't know when it might fail.

Ironically until this year, liberals treated him like a progressive god. He oversaw the creation of the income tax, promoted the Constitution as a "living document" subject the whimsical alteration by current events, promoted big government, and created the first globalist institution in the form of the League of Nations. I guess like all their heroes, even Wilson has feet of clay.

it's interesting that all these white trustees and boards and chairpersons have not resigned their positions and appointed a born-righteous POC in their place.

@4 - Expect a backlash against this soon, as the "culture" of "disadvantaged students" denies them the discipline and focus necessary to complete an essentially self-directed course of study. Online classes also rely heavily on testing, which is racist and evil in and of itself.

Besides, imagine the cost of constantly replacing all those gov-issued "free" computers that get traded for liquor, guns, and heroin.

@A rebel without a General
Don't worry that his condemnation was not for the right reason, let the dead bury the dead. Since Woodrow-(the worst President in American history)-Wilson was one of the preeminent figures that entrenched progressivism into America's political structure, this is the part where Frankenstein's Monster finally bashes Dr. Frankenstein over the head with a meat clever. Watch and enjoy.

The amount of quality free and low-cost online learning content has rendered the existing education model obsolete.

The only dedicated facilities required are large, well-funded labs where STEM learners can go to conduct experiments and research.

Not to mention signing onto the Federal Reserve System. People with PhD's tend to overestimate their own intelligence and awareness, especially outside of their specialization,* and hence, tend to be the easiest to fool. They're also tend to be among the easiest to hypnotize and then blatantly lie to.

Actually torn on this one.

Being from Lutheran Stock, it is fair to say I was raised to hate Wilson. Grandfather's stories of the burning of their German hymnals and being made to use the Book of Common Prayer (the red hymnal for those who remember it) were one of the few times he commented on politics.

But I do hare tearing down history.

Colonel House. Are there any statues of that guy to pull down? Probably not on public property.

Even history's white-washers like Ann MacMillan ("Paris 1919") have to mention the guy's negative 'influence' on Wilson's policies.

Wilson regretted the fed act, not that it matters. America has been fighting England's wars ever since, including recent ones. Must be a coincidence. I mean debts owed by former colonists to the royals? That couldn't happen!!!

@32- Hamilton! on Broadway was a unanimous hit amongst the political class (if not the general public). This is so because it combines two major, disparate factions of the current "In Crowd":

1. the Rising Tide of Color
and
2. the Banksters

I can't say it's a work of political genius, because the shortcuts it takes to black- and brown-wash the tale of the Founding is contrived and frankly ridiculous. But whoever thought of turning a Ron Chernow book into hip-hop cultural appropriation knew what he was doing.

No. I mean ALL of them. Like the doctor from Fort Wayne, who, about 20 years ago, was flying back to Fort Wayne from the island at the north end of Lake Michigan where he had a vacation home. Disregarded instructions from the tower, and crashed, killing his wife and daughter. 15 years later, he did THE SAME DAMNED THING AGAIN, this time, killing his son and himself. Mind you, the field in Fort Wayne was his home airport.

@Akulkis it gets (((better)))
wiki:
Eisgruber was raised Catholic and married his wife in an Episcopal church. While helping his son, then in the fourth grade, with a school project, he discovered that his Berlin-born mother, who had arrived in New York as an eight-year-old refugee, was Jewish. Today, Eisgruber identifies as a nontheist Jew.[22] His wife is Episcopalian.[23] In 2009, a Holocaust claims tribunal awarded Eisgruber and his three sisters 162,500 Swiss francs, representing the value of the bank account of their maternal great-grandfather, Salomon Kalisch.

That's some next level EST right there.

"Later, as a youth in St. Croix, Hamilton worked for a company trading in commodities that included slaves. During his career, Hamilton did occasionally purchase or sell slaves for others as their legal representative, and one of Hamilton's grandsons interpreted some of these journal entries as being purchases for himself."
But he liked jews, so everything's forgiven.

The Thirteen Points to World Peace envisioned to ensure World Peace after WWI were not thought up by Wilson but by his African-American House Boy Hidden Figure Leroy Jenkins.

Blogger sykes.1 June 28, 2020 8:52 AM  

Lubos Motl has a paean to Wilson today. Wilson's segregationism is also the basis for the European nation state and the Fourteen Points. Prior to WW I all those countries in Europe were mere provinces in one empire or another, and were ruled an alien race in some distant capital.

The Fourteen Points were anti-imperical and anti-globalist.

I'd go to the library, but the local one manages their inventory so thata book that doesn't get checked out in 3 years gets discarded. So much for going there to look up something esoteric. You're guaranteed the latest sjw bile on the shelves. College libraries are about all that's left for obscure stuff. With all those risks as well.

That and it's also a homeless shelter for vagrants to watch youtube videos as well.

1st crash, the doofus ran himself out of fuel ... whether he was "ignoring tower instructions" is rather irrelevant at that point

2nd crash was in Michigan due to manuevering below required min alt at too slow speed after failing an IFR landing. ie - he stalled himself out of the air for no reason. Charlevoix doesn't appear to have a tower.

son appears to have survived both crashes.
