Evergreen State flaunts its virtue once again by policing language

UPDATE: According to reader Benjamin (see comments below), the motion didn’t come up for a vote, contrary to what some websites say. This may have been due to public pressure/embarrassment. ________ This time it’s the word “covenant”, which apparently conjures up—for some of the Outrage Brigade—images of “cultural genocide”, the European-settler elimination, oppression, and ill […]

More free speech kerfuffle at Williams College, a school on the road to becoming Evergreen State

Williams College, a very prestigious school in Williamstown, Massachusetts, is currently in the throes of a debate about free speech. In this case the professors (not all of them, but many) want Williams to adopt the Chicago Principles of Free Expression (the “Chicago Principles”). The students, however, don’t want any stinking principles; they want endless […]

Enrollment at The Evergreen State College reported to drop 50%

It’s now been about sixteen months since all the fracas happened at The Evergreen State College (TESC) in Washington State, beginning with biology professor Bret Weinstein refusing to leave campus on the “Day of Absence,” and the students calling him (and his wife, biology professor Heather Heying) racists, despite the pair’s history of anti-racist work. The […]

Former Evergreen State police chief files tort claim against the college

According to The Olympian, the newspaper of the town where The Evergreen State College resides (TESC), the College is once more facing legal action for the Control Leftism of its students—the unhinged behavior that let the students run amok with baseball bats, prevent the University President from urinating without permission, and that ultimately led to […]

Enrollment drops at The Evergreen State College, budget cuts ordered

Well, it’s been about a year since Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying ignited a furor at The Evergreen State College (TESC) in Olympia, Washington, with Weinstein demonized for opposing the College’s Equity Initiative and, most famously, for refusing to leave work on the “Day of Departure” when People Without Color were asked to absent themselves […]

Plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose: Evergreen State defends its regressiveness

I’ll just drop this tweet from Bret Weinstein, late of The Evergreen State College, who is appalled by an upcoming lecture at the College. I, too, am disturbed by this lecture, which really does seem designed to turn the debate about the First Amendment back to a debate about racism. Bret says he went, and […]

Heather Heying and Bret Weinstein tell their Evergreen State story

I’ve written a lot about the ideological shenanigans at The Evergreen State College (TESC) in Olympia, Washington, and about how Leftists Bret Weinstein and Heather Heying, both professor of biology, were first vilfied, then attacked, and then more or less asked to leave by the University—all because Bret wouldn’t leave campus on the “Day of […]

Evergreen State offers a new course on hearing other viewpoints; professor is doomed

Bret Weinstein and his wife Heather Heying, until last year biology faculty at The Evergreen State College—otherwise known as The People’s Democratic College of Evergreen State, or TPDCES—have long departed, hounded out of Olympia, Washington for refusing to comply with black racism, and the school is back to its regressive ways. But, according to a […]

More on Evergreen State: Disruptive students actually get punished, and ex-professor Heather Heying writes about the Left’s anti-science stand

The Olympian, the local paper of the town where The Evergreen State College (TESC) resides, reports that that College and its invertebrate president, George “I Need to Pee” Bridges, has actually punished some of the disruptive students who ran amok at the College last spring. I’m bowled over: About 80 students were sanctioned for breaking the […]

Internal emails at Evergreen State reveal climate of racial hostility

An article by Jillian Kay Meolchior in yesterday’s Wall Street Journal, “Inside the madness at Evergreen State” (behind a paywall, but I thank a kind reader for sending me the text), reveals that, contrary to the college’s claims, The Evergreen State College (TESC) had a toxic atmosphere of authoritarianism, so that accusations of racism were […]
