The Backward world Northwestern University

If the backwards nature of the left was not already apparent the story of North-Western’s interesting class just cements it.

Northwestern University psychology professor J. Michael Bailey isn’t sure whether he’ll say he shouldn’t have allowed a live sex demo in an after-class session.

“If I decide to say I shouldn’t have done this,” Bailey told the Chicago Tribune Thursday, “it will be because [the controversy] could have been avoided, not because anybody has been harmed by it.”

Bailey allowed a man to demonstrate the use of a sex toy on his naked girlfriend in front of about 100 Northwestern University students Feb. 21, and the firestorm has been building since.

Michael Graham has video (sorry guys not the video you hoped for)

At the other McCain Smitty from Afghanistan is suggesting Charlie Sheen for Northwestern U’s First Heidi Fleiss Chair Of Applied Public Debauchery Studies while Stacy points out more idiocy from an NEA representative:

“Oral sex, masturbation, and orgasms need to be taught in education,” Diane Schneider told the audience at a [United Nations conference] panel on combating homophobia and transphobia. Schneider, representing the National Education Association (NEA), the largest teachers union in the US, advocated for more “inclusive” sex education in US schools.

Makes you want to just go out and support the union in Wisconsin doesn’t it?

More Amazing was the initial defense as Michelle Malkin reports:

The p.r. flack for Northwestern defended the “lecture” and “demonstration” as an example of teaching that puts the high-priced school “at the leading edge.”

But some students could see that the Emperor had no clothes, literally:

At least one student who witnessed the XXX-rated demo had a more accurate description:

“I didn’t expect to see a live sex show,” said Justin Smith

So once again, let’s go over the lessons of the left. Showing up for work is grounds for dismissal while playing hooky is not. The US is falling behind nationally in education so we need to teach masturbation, and $50,0000 a year colleges defend live sex acts with toys as a proper form of education.

Meanwhile a student get suspended for holding a door for a woman with her hands full.

There is a new study out that looking at boobs is healthy, if that’s true looking at all these idiots will add years to our lifespans.

An Art Gallery in Denmark shows Yale how it’s done:

A Danish gallery has decided to exhibit a caricature of Muhammad that unleashed a wave of protests in the Muslim world against Denmark in 2006. Citing an article in magazine Sappho, Agence France-Presse reports that the controversial caricature will be part of a larger exhibition dedicated to the watercolor works of the artist-caricaturist Kurt Westergaard at the Galleri Draupner in Skanderborg.

This is called actually speaking truth to power, as opposed to taking instruction from power as the NEA seems to be promulgating:

The NEA is the nation’s largest annual funder of the arts. That is right, the largest funder of the arts in the nation – a fact that I’m sure was not lost on those that were on the call, including myself. One of the NEA’s major functions is providing grants to artists and arts organizations. The NEA has also historically shown the ability to attract “matching funds” for the art projects and foundations that they select. So we have the nation’s largest arts funder, which is a federal agency staffed by the administration, with those that they potentially fund together on a conference call discussing taking action on issues under vigorous national debate. Does there appear to be any potential for conflict here?

Discussed throughout the conference call was a hope that this group would be one that would carry on past the United We Serve campaign to support the President’s initiatives and those issues for which the group was passionate. The making of a machine appeared to be in its infancy, initiated by the NEA, to corral artists to address specific issues. This function was not the original intention for creating the National Endowment for the Arts.

A machine that the NEA helped to create could potentially be wielded by the state to push policy. Through providing guidelines to the art community on what topics to discuss and providing them a step-by-step instruction to apply their art form to these issues, the “nation’s largest annual funder of the arts” is attempting to direct imagery, songs, films, and literature that could create the illusion of a national consensus. This is what Noam Chomsky calls “manufacturing consent.”

I guess this is the soviet Chicago way of making art.

I’ll wager that there will be no Saudi money going to the Galleri-draupner anytime soon.
