Discussion in 'The War Room' started by Calley, Mar 20, 2017.
You and I had different experiences in the humanities
back in my day we had 'ratemyprofessor.com' and it was mostly about how easy the class was or how hot the professor was
this sounds much more legit haha
See, I always check my professors out before I take their courses. Cant imagine my university is the only one with a mechanism for viewing course/teacher ratings.
Do your evaluations, people.
How nice for us.
Good idea. If enough students drop their classes then the schools will have to drop them.
I loved ratemyprofessor.com and I think it works better than some kind of "watch list." I wrote very in depth reviews on ratemyprofessor and I absolutely destroyed my sociology "professor," calling her out for 100% lying and making shit up. We had arguments in class where she would say the most outlandish bullshit, and I would ask for evidence. One time in particular she was going on and on about how all cops hate black people and she brought up a police department in South Carolina who was routinely running over black people as a game. She said size and shape of the black person determined the points in the game, similar to hunting with deer. Anyways, I pushed her hard for evidence and not once was she ever able to provide anything which suggested anything like that actually happened. Finally, after almost half a class of arguing, she drops a great one on the class "Don't you dare question me, I have a Master from Stanford, so it goes without saying that I know things you don't." I fucking laughed in her face and bounced.... dropped the class the next day and replaced it with Music Appreciation to get my elective and move on. haha
So yeah, I put all of that in the ratemyprofessor review on her and most of the other reviews were similar. So I think the students did a good job of showing she was a lying, socialist, piece of human garbage.
I'm sure this is going to get a lot of use by all our resident Sherdog scholars pursuing their masters and doctorates.
I wonder what that site has to say about Jordan peterson
That's not how tenure works.
Well, it's a start, but so far some of the "radical professors" they have listed look more moderate than any professor I had.
This one is more what I had:
"Professor Ciccariello-Maher is a political science professor at Drexel University. An avid supporter of deceased Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez, Ciccariello-Maher tweeted on Christmas Day 2016 that he wanted "white genocide" for Christmas, and later tweeted, "To clarify: when the whites were massacre [sic] during the Haitian revolution, that was a good thing indeed.""
What is your academic background?
Usually people who view college as exclusive or indicative of... Much of anything... Haven't gone
The idea that this happens with any type of frequency is a huge myth.
Didn't a police chief in Carolina recently get caught emailing a whole bunch of racist things?
And this is the POLICE CHIEF.
I'm 100% sure this professor actually destroyed you but you were too dumb to realize it. I'm glad you left so that the students who could actually critically think didn't have you waste their time any longer.
I read a good chunk of the entries on that website and they are poorly written and silly.
One of the charges against a professor was that he taught that "The US took parts of Mexico by force"
Um, idiots, that's historical fact that I've never heard a single historian deny.
What were the "racist things"? We've seen before that your definition of racist is as nuanced as just pointing out that someone is caucasian. You've abused and lost the privilege of just throwing the term around without citation.
And why is his story hard to believe?
You admit to being college faculty. I've never seen you involved in an argument in the war room where you didn't end up absolutely humiliated and and scrambling for a hole to crawl into.
You have a very limited vocabulary and extreme difficulty with construing logical arguments. It's a matter of pages until you have an emotional meltdown and start raving about skinheads and your guerrilla warfare plans (regardless of the original topic).
It's hard to believe that someone with the same job as you was beaten in a debate by one of their students (who, odds are, will at some point in life exceed them in job importance/status)? Why?
I haven't heard anything about a police chief in Carolina doing this, but if you have, please post a source.
Edit: Also, do you not believe that a police chief saying racist things in an email is in an entirely different league than an entire police department routinely running over black people in their squad cars?
I'm 100% sure the professor looked fucking perplexed and dumbfounded when I laughed at her and bounced. But it's OK, you can prejudge me all you desire. As for your "actually critically think" comment, either you're just straight up trolling, or you're beyond batshit crazy. You feel as though it's OK for a professor to lie and then get aggressive when they are called out on said lie? How is accepting something without evidence critically thinking?
Regardless, it was an Intro to Sociology course, so there's no critical thinking to be had in a course like that... especially when compared to my engineering courses.
It's perfect that a sherdog member who is a notorious habitual liar, self-proclaimed bolshevik communist college faculty and fantasizes about having postapocalyptic urban shootouts with the KKK is here to tell us how misguided this list is.
Wait, what critical thinking is going on in Engineering other than problem solving (which is of course necessary)? Do you mean to tell me that you discuss things such as Engineering in its social context? You discuss the social and political contradictions of Engineering as a field?
I've witnessed police do things that would make your head spin, so I don't put it past them to do anything. I mean police passed around and raped a young girl. Police have robbed people at gunpoint for their money. Police have covered up murders. Police have planted evidence. Police have murdered, and lied under oath, were caught, and were not charged.
So who knows, maybe your professor had bad evidence, but if her overall point was that the police are a corrupt organization capable of racism and murder, and your dumb ass was asking for evidence for a specific instance, you were wasting everyone's time with your ignorance, and furthermore you were missing the point.
I don't think I've once discussed guerrilla warfare on here, so I don't know who the hell you are talking about.
I've lost one argument in 11 years on here, and its was around 9 years ago. Somebody knew some history that I wasn't aware of, and I conceded after researching the topic and realizing this person was right. The person no longer posts on here. Other than that I've been kicking ass and taking names on here. I don't even know who you are.
Are you going to provide a link to what you suggested about a Carolina police chief? You brought it up, how about you do the responsible thing and post a source?
I have to wonder if you're actually capable of critical thinking if you are suggesting that students should just shut up and accept everything a professor says as fact without evidence. There's no fucking way in hell that what she said happened actually happened. I'm not going to sit there and let that psycho lie to the class. I have no issue with teaching about the roles and abuses of police in a society. I get it, there are bad cops out there, and like any other organization, they take care of each other. But there's not a fucking chance in hell that cops are running over black people with cars as a game.
I'm finished with you though... have a good day. Or don't as I really couldn't care any less about you.
