Former Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels Is Just Your Average Everyday Book-Burning University President

The few times we ever gave former Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels much thought, he always seemed like a Scott Walker wannabe who was trying to prove that he too could destroy public employee unions and pass “right to work” and just generally be terrible. The biggest difference between them seemed to be that Scott Walker never lost an argument with a door. But now it looks like maybe we misunderestimated Mitch Daniels, because it turns out that he had some awful qualities all his own! The AP reports that emails from 2010 show that Daniels sought to ban Howard Zinn’s A People’s History of the United States from Indiana schools and universities (he considered it “propaganda”) and also tried to cut funding for a professor who had criticized him. We bet that the committee who chose Daniels as president of Purdue University is really happy with this news. (Oh of course they are — he appointed the board of trustees that hired him!)

NRO Has Smart Plan To Save America: Raze The Universities & Re-Educate All People In Glasses

Some people simply do not handle losing very well. Unable to accept that the electoral system in their beloved Constitution could possibly allow those other people to win, they suggest that maybe we need a revolution, or that America died and God’s wrath is at hand, or that maybe rassenfracken pimps whores welfare brats makin’ us just dang ol’ soulless spiritual suicide, man, tellyawhut man, dang ol’ shiiiiiiit. (Also, thanks for the pageviews, Reddit!) The grownups in the spurned party, on the other hand, faced the day after the election by asking themselves the Hard Questions, like “what aspects of our agenda may have proven unpopular with the electorate?” or “how might we best adjust our message to meet a changing electoral landscape?” Or, if they’re the NRO’s David Gelertner, they might ask, “Where did all these degenerate communist morans come from? Must be the colleges! They’re full of radicals! Let’s root out the colleges!” Read more on NRO Has Smart Plan To Save America: Raze The Universities & Re-Educate All People In Glasses…

Texas Votes To Require Campus ‘Family Values Centers’ (For Non-Gays)

The Texas House overwhelmingly passed a budget last week that included an amendment that would force state universities to create a “traditional family values center” in order to continue receiving state funding if they currently have one of those resource centers for the gays and such. According to its author, state Rep. Wayne Christian, universities “teach alternative sexual behavior,” and he doesn’t want to interfere with their “right” to do that, he just wants to make sure college kids are taught penises can be stuck in vaginas, the way Jesus had sex and created a family. Is this a sign that heterosexuals can finally express their sexuality openly and enjoy some degree of acceptance in society? Or will our young people continue to kill themselves in shame when they figure out they’re straight? Read more on Texas Votes To Require Campus ‘Family Values Centers’ (For Non-Gays)…
