UMSL Killing American Males

David Brooks—the former conservative—skewered the University of Missouri St. Louis yesterday.  Brooks wasn’t aware, and UMSL administrators don’t read. But some of us caught it. Brooks wrote of The Missing Fifth. Did you know that 20 percent of American men in their primes don’t work?

Americans should be especially alert to signs that the country is becoming less vital and industrious. One of those signs comes to us from the labor market. As my colleague David Leonhardt pointed out recently, in 1954, about 96 percent of American men between the ages of 25 and 54 worked. Today that number is around 80 percent. One-fifth of all men in their prime working ages are not getting up and going to work. [Emphasis added.]

How sad. How embarrassing. I’d say “how shameful” except the Supreme Court ruled shame unconstitutional, or so it seems. We’ve had that feeling, shame, removed from our souls.

Men who do nothing are deadbeats, much more so than people who try to pay their bills and can’t.  We’re talking about able-bodied men who simply choose to sit on their asses and sponge of others—off of foolish women, in many cases.

Brooks errs in his proposed solution, of course.  Brooks thinks American education the solution. He hasn’t been paying attention. I have some other ideas.

Higher education isn’t the solution to our problem; education is the problem.

The University of Missouri’s wing schools, UMKC and UMSL, offer the course “Introduction to Labor Studies.”  This course is why 20 percent of men believe that sitting on their brains is their right—nay, their duty—as young, able-bodied American men.

Leaving aside the communist party recruitment activity for a moment, UMSL’s Labor Studies course is a lesson in lying, lazy, and license.

In Labor Studies, professional derelicts Don Giljum and Nancy Ancel teach students how to avoid work, how to destroy a company’s profits, and how to harass and intimidate managers.

Think about this: the state of Missouri uses tax dollars to teach Missouri students how to rip off employers.  Knowing that, why would you hire someone who went to a public university in Missouri?  Why would you open an office or business in the state?  What could be more foolish than to expect Missouri to encourage business?

Here’s a solution.  It’s a tiny, tiny step, but it’s a step in the right direction: Shut down the damn Labor Studies course in the University of Missouri system.

An alternative solution if that’s too radical for our legislature: rename the course “Introduction to Deadbeat Studies.”

But do something before "Men at Work" becomes nothing more than a trivia question.

UMSL: Communist Recruiting With Taxpayer Dollars

The University of Missouri St. Louis uses tax dollars to provide a recruiting station for the Communist Party USA—an organization whose purpose is to shred the United States Constitution. UMSL Student Philip Christofanelli heroically chronicles the remarkable Marxist indoctrination known as “Introduction to Labor Studies” on BigGovernment.com.  I’ll give you a taste:

Prof. Giljum then introduced Tony Pecinovsky, a local organizer for the Communist Party, who proceeded to speak to us for two hours about the beliefs of the Communist Party and the benefits of membership.  That’s right–the Communist Party was allowed two hours of publicly subsidized class time to recruit. Thank you, Missouri taxpayers!

We’ve listened to the lies of UMSL and UMKC Provosts Glen Hahn and Gail Hackett for two weeks as they tried to defend the Marxist indoc camps they run with your money.

ENOUGH.

We’re read Tim Baker’s pack of lies in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Baker employed the subtle lie of “academic freedom,” treating that age-old communist tool as if it were on the tablets God gave Moses. (Read God and Man at Yale by William F. Buckley Jr. for more on academic freedom.)

ENOUGH.

We’ve listened to the whining lies of Don Giljum, the violent sabotage guru whose primary mission in the Labor Studies class seems to be destruction of the American economy.  The same Don Giljum who launched an unprovoked violent attack on Adam Sharp only to be coddled by UMSL Provost Glen Hahn who seized the evidence in the case.

ENOUGH!!!!

It’s time for Hahn, Hackett, and Ancel to resign or be fired.

It’s time the Missouri Legislature to stand up to communist indoctrination in the state university system. Where the hell are you, Steve Tilley?

It’s time to reform the U of M system or end public funding.

Judy Ancel: Teacher of the Year

Judy Ancel is the University of Kansas City instructor responsible for teaching students to use violence, sabotage and intimidation as political tools. She’s telling the Kansas City Star that she’s receiving threats from people upset that she teaches students to threaten others. I oppose violence, sabotage, and intimidation as political tools.  But Judy Ancel’s message of violence seems to have gotten through to some people.

Too bad Ancel doesn’t use her skills for good instead of evil.

One Question for Gail Hackett of UMKC

GailHackettGail Hackett, UMKC Provost, released a deceitful, false, and irresponsible defense of UMKC instructors who encouraged students to use violence, sabotage, and intimidation to their way. But Gail Hackett refuses to answer hard questions.

I have one question for the UMKC Provost:

Do you agree with Don Giljum’s statement “I believe in a violent overthrow of Bourgeois?” 

Before you answer, remember that Giljum’s use of the personal term “Bourgois” instead of the the class “bourguoisie” indicates that Giljim believes in violence against individual members of the middle class. 

In other words, Giljum – and by extension UMKC and UMSL – encourage students to violently attack middle class people.

Your answer?

4 Updates on University of Missouri Story

Big news day in the advance of liberty in our battle against collectivists. First, KMOX is reporting that an UMSL professor has resigned over the controversy.  For the life of me, I cannot find who the professor is.UMSL Lecturer Resigns I thought that everyone involved was either an instructor or a guest lecturer.  If you know the answer to the riddle, please use the comment form.

Second, University of Kansas City refuses to accept responsibility for what goes on in its classroom.  Instead of admitting that it was wrong to allow a communist union leader teach that political violence is okay, they’ve blamed the messenger.  What’s new.

Third, responding to my request for their statement, Ameren UE has released the following:

We are appalled by the comments of the former business manager of a union representing our workers and employees of other companies and by the actions he describes in his lecture.  If we ever had any evidence of sabotage at any of our facilities, we would have immediately notified law enforcement officials.

“ We do not know of any such sabotage but would immediately turn over to law enforcement anyone who threatens our operations in any way. We have a policy of protecting anyone reporting information about sabotage or other illegal actions and encourage anyone to come forward with information about this.

“We have full confidence in our employees and have in place extensive security training programs and procedures aimed at protecting our facilities, our employees and the public. [Emphasis mine.]

 

I hope the University of Missouri System, Governor Nixon, and the Missouri Legislature will follow Ameren’s lead by denouncing the content of this course and disassociating themselves from courses, lecturers, and employees that promote political violence and sabotage.

Finally, Lieutenant Governor Peter Kinder has strongly condemned the content of the University of Missouri System class.  As a guest on Dana Loesch’s program on News Talk 97.1 FM today, Kinder promised that he will stay on this case until it’s resolved.

Please keep on top of your legislators.  Remember, we fought a 40-year Cold War to stop the evil of communism throughout the world.  We will not yield it a beachhead in America.

Shut Down Labor Studies Now, Governor Nixon

Governor Nixon:  What does it take to get your attention?  What does it take to get you to act?

Your University of Missouri System humiliates this state, and you refuse to act.

Under your nose, the UofM teaches or encourages:

You have permit these travesties.  You, Jay Nixon. 

Where is your statement condemning sabotage and violence? 

Here’s what you can do, now, to protect this country and Missouri taxpayers:

  1. Shut  down Labor Studies until the department’s been purged of anti-American radicals
  2. Fire Missouri state employees who invited Don Giljum and that communist into classroom
  3. Apologize to Missouri taxpayers who pay $400 million a year for that university system
  4. Apologize to the students and their parents who sat through that filth

Governor Nixon, I spent 9 years of my life holding a nuclear knife to the throat of communism.  I have a son serving in the U.S. Navy right now.  I’ll be damned if I’ll sit still while you fund communist studies and industrial sabotage lessons with my tax money. 

Do You Agree With These Statements, Governor?

Here’s what communist activist Don Giljum told students about the use of violence:

“It certainly has it’s place. It’s a tactic that should be used at the appropriate time.  I believe in a violent overthrow of Bourgeois, and that freedom is found at the barrel of a gun...like Marx said.”

And the U of M faculty member, Judy Ancel, describes the radical and inhumane use of cats by a union:

“They couldn’t get access to” strike, “but they had a lot of cats and they succeeded in putting cats in powerhouses. And the cats — now, don’t think about the cats, OK? The cats would run around inside and short out the system and cause power blackouts. And that created enough chaos in the system” to get to “a negotiating position.  They got rid of a lot of feral cats.”

These Teachings Are Killing Jobs

You want more Chinese money for long-term unemployment?  Maybe if your schools didn’t encourage industrial sabotage the unemployed would have jobs.

You want Missouri kids get good jobs after college? Who would hire a kid who was tainted by Judy Ancel, David Giljum, and Tony Pecinovsky? 

Taxpayers are on their way to see you, Governor Nixon.  We expect action.

Tell UMSL to Stop Teaching Industrial Sabotage

UofMCommieContact UofM President Steve Owens and demand an immediate end to the communist-led industrial sabotage courses that he’s shoving down your kids’ throats

That’s right, UMSL and UMKC are teaching kids how to destroy business in America. They want your job to go overseas.  And the guy leading the class is a proud communist.

No employer in his right might would hire a graduate of the University of Missouri-St. Louis.  Why? Because your UMSL Faculty teaches students to sabotage their employers. 

Here’s part one of the damning report.

You get that students?  Good luck finding a job after your board of regents hired communists to teach you to sabotage the very companies that you’ll try to work for some day. 

Missouri’s taxpayers fund the University of Missouri system.  At least two of those three schools teach courses on industrial sabotage, violence, and intimidation

In other words, UMSL teaches students to destroy Missouri businesses.  And you pay for it.

Here’s part two of UMSL vs. US Jobs

Want to know why companies flee the United States?  It’s because the union movement has devolved into a criminal enterprise. It’s a union movement supported by brain-dead academics like Judy Ancel and the University of Missouri System President and Chancellors.

Remember, unions work for unions, just as corporations work for corporations.  Union bosses and degenerates like Judy Ancel and her accomplice Don Giljum couldn’t care less about a worker. These two wastes of human flesh live for themselves and for their communist ideals.

Doh!  You can’t email the U of M President because his email system was shut off!  Can’t take the heat Steven?  Or is UMSL’s computer network the victim of your Communist Party Department’s sabotage?  So call

 

Or the the Curators of the University of Missouri System.

If they dare try to evade accountability, read them this paragraph from their own website:

The University of Missouri, which refers to the institution, in all of its parts, persons, property and relationships wherever situated, owned, operated, controlled, managed or otherwise regulated, is under the supervision or direction of The Board of Curators of the University of Missouri.

I hear people at UMKC are furious.  Not because Missouri taxpayers are being fleeced by communists, but because the taxpayers FOUND OUT!!

Exit question:  Have you contacted U of M?  Your State Rep and Senator?  Please do. Ask them why we pay to have communists teach students to destroy Missouri businesses. 

****ACTION****

And demand that they pass SB1 pass. This is a bill that makes it a little harder for union thugs to drive business out of Missouri.  And it’s about damn time! 

The man to contact about SB1 is Senator Tom Dempsey from the St. Charles area.  Here’s his contact information:

Capitol Office:
  201 W Capitol Ave., Rm. 332
  Jefferson City, Missouri 65101
(573) 751-1141
  FAX: (573) 522-3383
Tom.Dempsey@senate.mo.gov

District Office:
  PO Box 62
  St. Peters, MO 63376
(636) 294-2526

Let Senator Dempsey know that SB1 is vital to Missouri jobs and you want it passed.

UPDATE:  Gateway Pundit is on the UMSL / UMKC story. Also, there’s a report that the local NBC affiliate may be involved in the courses. Folks are checking that out now. And Instapundit has picked up the story.  And the Columbia Daily Tribune weighs in.

Some people will have a bad day tomorrow:

  • Governor Jay Nixon
  • U of M System Interim President Steven Owens
  • The administration at UMSL
