I never had the chance to have a full college experience. My parents couldn’t afford to send me to college, so after high school I had to join the ward where I spent long nights and long weekends doing college in line at American Military University and George Washington University.
Like many of my peers, I used to dream of a college experience when I was younger. To have my mind expanded with new experiences, different people, new ideas, engage in lively debate, and read engaging content.
Of course, like most daydreams, the reality is quite different, perhaps more than ever. College is no longer about grooming America’s future lawyers, doctors and leaders — it’s about grooming future left-wing cry babies, as Stanford Law School demonstrated earlier this month.
It’s Stanford’s elite law school. Observe the egregious behavior of the administrator, but also of the students. They feel comfortable treating the speaker (a judge) that way. They will eventually be judges. Wokism will wreak havoc on society. pic.twitter.com/fnahtKx6vU

Indignant outrage resulted
A federal judge appointed by former President Donald Trump was invited to Stanford Law School to discuss various topics from the campus Federalist Society, including COVID, the Second Amendment and the latest free speech drama on Twitter. But, sadly, U.S. Circuit Judge S. Kyle Duncan couldn’t speak thanks to the ambush planned by 100 student protesters and the school’s Dean of Diversity…whatever.
If you watch the video footage, it’s obvious that this diversity dean was ready for a fight and had some words ready to give at the event. I’m sure it’s no coincidence that everything was filmed; we wouldn’t want to waste a fake outrage on social media.
Associate Dean for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Tirien Steinbach said Judge Duncan, “It’s uncomfortable to say this to you as a person. It’s uncomfortable to say that for many people here, your work has caused harm.

It’s uncomfortable because it’s rubbish; if it was all rooted in truth, it wouldn’t be uncomfortable at all.
“We think the way to deal with speech that seems hateful, that feels harmful, that literally denies people’s humanity — that one way to do that is with more speech, not less,” Ms Steinbach said. . said ironically while refusing to let Judge Duncan speak. Then, punctuating what she believed to be her role, she said proudly, “This event tears at the fabric of this community that I care about and am here to support.
But only the students on the left, not the other students who literally invited the judge to speak.

hypocrites and idiots
Like most judges, right or left, Judge Duncan is no dummy. He believes “It was a setup, she was working with students on it.”
Judge Duncan rightly explained to those obnoxious middle school toddlers that “it won’t work in a courtroom, that way of disagreement. That may be where we’re going as a society, but it’s not working in my courtroom.
Unfortunately, this is precisely where the company is going; Judge Duncan’s courtroom may soon be the only place where this immaturity is not allowed as the basis for elevated debate. Now, some have also criticized the judge for some of his comments related to these students.
He called them hypocrites and idiots, which, I mean, both are correct, so I don’t see a problem with that. I expect a judge to be able to succinctly describe their experience. I don’t think he needs to apologize because if that’s true, there’s nothing to apologize for.
However, the Good Judge thought he deserved an apology, saying, “It would be nice if they reached out to me and said, ‘Oh, we’re sorry.'”
Well, damn it, they did it to give the school credit.
If ANY law school did to a liberal judge what Stanford did to Judge Duncan, the American Bar Association would investigate and that school’s accreditation would be questioned.

The President and Dean of Stanford Law School writing an apology to Judge Duncan. In the letter, they wrote, “What happened was not in accordance with our policies on free speech, and we are truly sorry for the experience you had while visiting our campus. .”
Now you have to admit that’s pretty good.
“We are very clear with our students on this point, given our commitment to free speech,” the letter states. “If there are speakers with whom they disagree, they are invited to exercise their right to protest but not to disrupt the proceedings.”
The letter even referred to Ms Steinbach, although she is not directly named, adding that “staff members who should have enforced university policies failed to do so and instead intervened in inappropriate ways that do not correspond not to the university’s commitment to freedom of expression”.
Finally, as they touched on the subject of vital freedom of speech, they concluded the letter by saying, “Freedom of speech is a fundamental tenet of the law school, the university, and a democratic society, and we can and must do better to ensure it continues even in polarized times.
So were the students expelled for violating the anti-disruption policy? Was the Dean of Diversity let go for advocating and causing said disruption?
No. Why would they? This would require real adherence to the concept of responsibility.
Stanford law student:
“A lot of us who worked really hard to get to Stanford feel like suckers right now. You might have thought law school should teach you how to debate people and make an argument, but it turns out it’s to get you thinking about a very specific path.”pic.twitter.com/6QzsvPFgUj

Fifth Circuit Judge James Ho and Eleventh Circuit Judge Elizabeth Branch writing in the national review that law schools should punish students who disrupt free speech and that they “do not teach students how to be good citizens”.
“And if schools are unwilling to impose consequences themselves, at a minimum they should identify disruptors so future employers know who they are hiring,” they said. I know that if I owned a law firm or was a judge looking for a new clerk, I would want to know if my new hire was anti-free speech.
Senator Ted Cruz said of the incident, “It’s Stanford Law School. They’re trying to train social justice warriors. They’re trying to train Occupy Wall Street, burn it all down by left-wing radicals. They’re trying to train Antifa. They don’t are not trying to train lawyers.
Unfortunately, it may be too late. Higher education hasn’t been about higher education for decades, but about making money and making future loyalists to the ideology that pays the most.
While the students stood panels like that clever joke, “Judge Duncan can’t find the cl*t,” Ms. Steinbach said, “I’m glad it’s happening here.”
I bet she was, she’s a hero to her tribe, a martyr to the cause, and her retinue of brainwashed minions feel like they’ve contributed to a greater goal.
So much for enlightened thinking and heated debate elevated.
