Of course, by then, her privileged career will be over.
Of course she cancelled a show last year that expressed an opinion termed by some as 'hateful' because that show had no redeeming educational value to the university - or something like that - is all free speech is created equal @ LBSU?.
now, this is related to Basketball because we don't have any white players - wait! the diversity of our MBB team will be better this year because we will have an indeginous Serb (hopefully he got training on the history of Yugoslavian ethnic cleansing before he was admitted to LB) & an ethnic Finn
why haven't we heard from CDM is the question?! is he a sympathizer?? he has not spoken! but then he rarely says anything of interest (especially about basketball) anyway
in any case, just trying to stir the pot - would love to do freedom of information requests for all the e-mail traffic in the upper echelons of our University System angsting over the need to respond from the anointed leaders - nice to know they think they are doing 'something' & hopefully means they are spending less time imposing more rules
: I wonder if Dr. Conoley values diversity if
: the diversity of thought doesn't fit within
: her view of the world. She's laid out in her
: note what her values are.
: I don't think that Dr. Conoley made a point
: to address the LB State community when a
: Black Lives Matter protest goes violent (as
: they often do). I don't remember reading
: anything from her when an Antifa or
: Immigration Rights rallies get violent. I
: also don't remember her standing up for
: police and their families when cops were
: being shot in Dallas and a common phrase at
: rallies was "Pigs in a blanket, watch
: them burn!" or "What do we want?
: Dead Cops. When do we want it? Now!".
: If I just missed these notes, I'm sorry. I
: don't remember her standing up and saying LB
: State won't bar speakers from this campus
: like Berkeley because the leftist students
: and faculty don't want to hear a different
: opinion. That's free speech, that's
: diversity on a campus. I don't even like
: most of those guys (like Milo) but I would
: never try to bar them from speaking.
: It's selective outrage. This outrage just
: fits her narrative. Of course it's horrible
: what happened in Virginia. Those white
: nationalists are horrible people. But where
: is the equality in the outrage?
: I also notice that she took the time to list
: out all the victim groups she's worried
: about. I see that she's included indigenous
: people on there too. I'm sure she's a
: student of history and knows that conquest
: has happened in this world since the
: beginning of time. In fact, Indian nations
: regularly conquered each other and stole
: each others land. The French, English,
: Spanish and Dutch just did it better and
: made it stick.

: We Embrace Free Speech
: Dear Beach Community,
: The hate and violence on display over the
: past few days at the University of Virginia
: and in Charlottesville, Virginia remind us
: that racism, anti-Semitism, Islamophobia,
: neo-Nazism, and intolerance for
: “differences” loom over our democracy. While
: every American has a constitutional right to
: demonstrate peacefully, even on the most
: odious of platforms, I write today to affirm
: our campus values
: We have zero tolerance for violence.
: Threatening others with weapons or fists
: negates one’s right of assembly. Driving a
: vehicle into a peaceful crowd is a form of
: domestic terrorism.
: Our grandfathers and grandmothers fought
: Nazis in order to preserve democracy. Nazism
: targeted Jews, the Roma people, disabled
: individuals, homosexuals, and many others
: they considered inferior members of the
: human race. There is no place in the U.S.
: for Neo-Nazis, Identity Evropa, white
: supremacy or white nationalists.
: Further, we have struggled for hundreds of
: years in our nation to guarantee full
: constitutional rights to Indigenous Nations,
: all people of color, women, people of all
: sexual orientations, gender identities, and
: ages, to name just a few. This struggle
: continues with daily reminders of our
: responsibilities to be vigilant, outspoken,
: and committed to the defense of liberty and
: justice for all.
: As more groups gain full participation in
: our civic and economic systems, our nation
: becomes stronger. Our country is not a
: finite “pie” of opportunity. Rather it is
: the global beacon of ever expanding
: possibilities for people from all walks of
: life who work hard and honor the
: Constitution. Those who believe others’
: success diminishes them are simply wrong.
: At The Beach, all groups who obey our time,
: place and manner regulations can rent venues
: or march across our property. But no group
: is permitted to threaten the physical safety
: of anyone. Free speech is protected by more
: speech, not by violence. Campus leaders and
: our University Police Department stand ready
: to protect all members of our campus
: We welcome vigorous debate. We value
: diversity. We will not, however, tolerate
: any insider or outsider who plans to do harm
: to people or property. Our job as Americans
: is to create a more perfect union during
: each generation. The founders, imperfect as
: some were in behavior and beliefs, gave each
: of us the challenge to continue this great
: experiment in democracy. At its core,
: democracy is built on protecting the rights
: of everyone. A majority can rule justly only
: when minorities are helped to flourish.
: Let’s talk. Let’s listen. Let’s pledge our
: lives to liberty and justice for all.
: Jane Close Conoley, Ph.D.
