Bret Weinstein talks with Gad Saad

This hourlong conversation between Gad Saad and Bret Weinstein, apostate professor of evolutionary biology at The Evergreen State College, is worth a listen. Weinstein shows himself to be thoughtful and articulate, and deals with many of questions that have arisen among this website’s readers. One in particular is whether the requested “absence” of whites from […]

More on the Evergreen State situation

In the video below, Benjamin Boyce, a “nontraditional student” who started his studies at The Evergreen State College at age 36, discusses the College’s method of indoctrinating students. It apparently begins at the very outset of studies with a series of “anti-oppression” workshops for first-years that allow no debate. These workshops seem to be involve […]

Evergreen State College spokesperson lies about Bret Weinstein, faculty says he should shut up

This is worth only a short mention, but I add it here to keep a record. If you’ve been following the Demonization of Bret Weinstein by the Assembled Authoritarians of The Evergreen State College (TESC) you’ll know that after being threatened and told by campus police that they couldn’t protect him, biology professor Bret Weinstein […]

More craziness at Evergreen State College: Jewish students write a letter saying that Bret Weinstein’s own Jewish background makes him even more racist

Just when you think Bret Weinstein’s demonization at The Evergreen State College couldn’t get any worse, it does. Now a group of cowardly and presumably Jewish students have written  “A letter to Bret Weinstein from some Jews bent on the destruction of White Supremacy“. They sign the letter “Some Jewish students at Evergreen bent on the […]

The latest on Evergreen State College and the demonization of Bret Weinstein

The fracas at The Evergreen State College (TESC), which I think has permanently ruined its reputation, continues to gain traction in the mainstream media, though most left-wing venues have resolutely ignored the story. (Exceptions are the Washington Post and the New York Times.) I still think this is some kind of turning point that will hurt […]

Seattle Times warns of Evergreen State’s future–and more updates on the situation

I hadn’t realized that The Evergreen State College (ESC)  is “the only state four-year higher education institution to see enrollment drop steeply since 2011 despite wide-open admission standards.” (They accept about 98% of applicants, I believe). The statement in quotes comes from yesterday’s editorial in the Seattle Times, “The Evergreen State College: No safety, no […]

Evergreen State professors and staff sign “statement of solidarity” with the entitled and racist students

About 55 Evergreen State College faculty and 23 College Staff have signed a “statement of solidarity” with the student protestors, which you can find here. (That’s more than a quarter of the faculty). I reproduce the statement in its entirety (indented). It is an implicit criticism of biology professor Bret Weinstein as a racist, which […]

Is the tide turning? The NYT criticizes the entitled students of Evergreen State

For some reason—and I may well be wrong—I think the demonization of biology professor Bret Weinstein at The Evergreen State College, the abject cowering of College President George Bridges in front of hordes of screaming students, and the absolutely unbelievable authoritarianism of those students as well as the non-science faculty—all represent a turning point in […]

Latest on the student miscreants at Middlebury and Evergreen State

Just two updates. You’ll remember that students at Middlebury College in Vermont physically attacked both Charles Murray and his host, Allison Stanger, on March 2 (see here and here). Never mind that most of them hadn’t read The Bell Curve, or that Murray wasn’t even talking about that book; it was enough that he got […]

Update on Bret Weinstein, the demonized Evergreen State College professor

A few days ago I wrote about Bret Weinstein, a professor of evolutionary biology at The Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington—a university hotbed of Regressive Leftism. After refusing to leave campus after the demands of students on the “Day of Absence” (in earlier years, students of color left campus on that day to engage […]
