We won on the OUTSIDE front, but lost on the INSIDE front.
Well, Peak Stupidity has used the expression "Bizarro-Germany" before, with Herr Merkel over there being a sort-of Bizarro-Hitler (More here). If you've ever watched Jerry Seinfeld relate things in his NYC world to that in Superman cartoons, or, more directly, read Superman cartoons, you'd know that the term is used for a world in which everything is opposite from ours.
Bizarro-Communism? In some ways, no, things are simply rhyming with the history of a century back. However, we read, from The College Fix website*, "Columbia professor who fled communism resigns, says university is becoming communist". So what? I'll tell you what: The professor in question is formerly from Communist Romania, that's what! Does it take a man who lived under Communism to actually recognize incipient Communism? Actually, the phrase by Andrei Serban, as translated from a Romanian TV interview, is "on its way toward full blown ..".
A Romania-born academic says he recently left his tenured position at Columbia University because the Ivy League school is “on its way toward full blown communism,” according to a Romanian TV interview translated by a Romanian-American immigrant.Note also the bit about "an award-winning director". It's not the "award-winning" I mention here, but the "director" bit. Andrei Serban is a Theater Professor at Columbia. Theater people are well-known for their ... well... theatrics. What's the drama this time?
Prof. Andrei Serban, an award-winning director, complained about the increasing social justice demands he faced in the theater department in the interview, which aired on Romania’s TVR1 Oct. 26. One prominent example he gave: pressure to admit a transgender applicant who auditioned as Juliet from “Romeo and Juliet.”
Serban says in the interview that after a faculty member retired, the remaining professors in the department were called in to a meeting to discuss a replacement."Join the party, pal!" is some more modern-day American theatrics, courtesy of Die Hard and Peak Stupidity.
It was at this meeting that the dean of the art school told them that there were “too many white professors, too many heterosexual men,” and that it would be best to hire a minority or a woman, or a gay man.
Serban, who was the director of the hiring committee, says that he was told that it could not be someone like him because he is a man that has been “married, a heterosexual man who has children.”
The professor says that he then asked if they could choose a straight white male if the most qualified candidate happened to be so, and was promptly told that they could not. “I felt like I was living under communism again,” he said.
Mind you, even 50 years ago, before America was "woke", the movie and theater businesses were pretty nutty already with the gay and genderbender business, though "Trannies" back then (at least as far as I'd ever heard about it were men that looked like women, but they got better. They could always just change clothes. Somehow I don't think
A second incident involving a male-to-female transgender student was the final impetus for Serban to resign, according to the translated video.Good on him. It's not like it's really that difficult to say "you people are sick" to some of this stupidity. This is NOT 1960's Romania, where you'd better damn well not argue with the Commies in charge under threat of death. We here, are at incipient, not full-blown Communism yet. It is amazing to me how much people will take, as this brand-new serving of stupidity is shoved down their throats. Just regurgitate this stuff back at 'em! I've written it before, and I'll write it again: There's great power in numbers. Those numbers don't have to be that awful large either, in this case.
While reviewing applicants to the theater school, the transgender student prepared Juliet’s monologue from “Romeo and Juliet.”
Serban says that he could not believe that this person could become Juliet. After his colleagues expressed displeasure with him for stating as much, Serban resigned, saying that he could not violate his principles.
Is it not a bizarro world in which we have Romanians of the East Bloc pointing out the coming of full-blown Communism to Americans?
Now, I'd really want to explain to our readers why I do often use the term "Communist" to describe the types of people in the American institutions, such as those Professor Serban just got done dealing with. I know, I know, they don't know a struggle of the classes from a bunch of holes in the ground, they don't quote Karl Marx, and they don't go carrying pictures of Chairman Mao. That's not what it takes, though... more in an upcoming post.
