Prof: Country is being put in danger by identity politics

Prof: Country is being put in danger by identity politics


TO FoxNews.com.>>Tucker: WELCOME BACK. INSIDE THE ISSUE, SPECIAL EDITION OF TUCKER CARLSON TONIGHT. UNTIL RECENTLY BRETT WEINSTEIN WAS A BIOLOGY PROFESSOR AT EVERGREEN STATE COLLEGE IN OREGON. LAST YEAR THOUGH A TARGET MOM TARGETED HIM WHEN HE REFUSED TO LEAVE CAMPUS BECAUSE OF THE COLOR OF HIS SKIN. HE TOOK A PRINCIPAL POSITION AS A LIBERAL BY THE WAY. LATER HE FELT HE HAD TO RESIGN AND HE DID. HE TESTIFIED TO CONGRESS ABOUT FREE SPEECH ON CAMPUS AND AFTER HE DID THAT, HE SPOKE WITH US. PROFESSOR, THANKS FOR JOINING US.>>THANKS FOR HAVING ME BACK ON.>>Tucker: AMAZINGLY, IT’S BEEN A YEAR SINCE ALL OF THIS HAPPENED. WE TALK TO YOU IN THE MIDDLE OF IT, WHAT ARE THE LESSONS THAT YOU ARE TAKING FROM THE EXPERIENCE THAT YOU WENT THROUGH EXPERIENCE THAT YOU WENT THROUG THROUGH?>>IT’S HARD TO IMAGINE THAT IT HAS BEEN A YEAR BUT IT HAS BEEN ALMOST EXACTLY A YEAR, AND MUCH HAS CHANGED. ONE OF THE THINGS THAT’S MOST IMPORTANT IS THAT THE CONVERSATION IS IN A VERY DIFFERENT PLACE THAN IT WAS LAST MAY. WE ARE NOW ABLE TO DISCUSS ISSUES OF IDENTITY POLITICS, AND PEOPLE ARE STILL IN FLAMES ON BOTH SIDES OF THAT DIALOGUE. WE ARE ABLE TO HAVE THOSE DISCUSSIONS IN A WAY THAT IS VIRTUALLY IMPOSSIBLE LAST MAY. IT SEEMS TO ME THAT THERE IS ACTUALLY A RECOGNITION THAT THE COUNTRY IS IN DANGER, AND IT IS BEING PLACED IN DANGER BY IDENTITY POLITICS BOTH ON THE FAR RIGHT AND THE FAR LEFT. SO I SEE A MOVEMENT LED IN PART BY THE INTELLECTUAL DARK WEB AND FIRE TOWARDS WHAT I WOULD CALL A PATRIOTIC CENTER, WHERE PEOPLE WHO DISAGREE OVER MANY ISSUES OF POLICY FIND THEMSELVES ALIGNED OVER BASIC AMERICAN PRINCIPLES.>>Tucker: YES. SO AS I RECALL, YOU ARE KIND OF CAUGHT UNAWARE BY THIS, YOU ARE ABSORBED IN YOUR ACADEMIC DISCIPLINE. YOU WERE KIND OF A TRADITIONAL FREE-SPEECH LIBERAL, YOU DIDN’T FULLY APPRECIATE WHAT HAD BEEN HAPPENING ON CAMPUS UNTIL YOU STOOD UP AND TOOK THE TRADITIONALLY LIBERAL POSITION THAT YOU SHOULDN’T ATTACK PEOPLE ON THE BASIS OF THEIR SKIN COLOR. AND YOU GOT COUNTED OFF CAMPUS AND THREATENED WITH VIOLENCE. HAVE YOU RECONCILED WITH EVERGREEN YOURSELF, HAVE YOU SPOKEN TO THE PRESIDENT OR HAVE THEY APOLOGIZE TO YOU? WHERE DOES THAT STAND NOW?>>THEY HAVE DONE QUITE THE OPPOSITE OF APOLOGIZING. THEY HAVE HIRED A P.R. TEAM THAT QUITE OFTEN DEMONIZES MYSELF AND MY WIFE IN THE OLYMPIAN WHICH IS THE LOCAL PAPER. THINGS ON CAMPUS HAVE ACTUALLY GROWN, AS MUCH AS IT’S HARD TO IMAGINE, MUCH WORSE THAN THEY WERE DURING THE RIOTS OF MAY 2017. SO EVERGREEN STATE COLLEGE HAS TAKEN A TURN TOWARDS THE AUTHORITARIAN THAT IS NOTHING IF NOT BREATHTAKING. PEOPLE ARE BEING FIRED FOR THEIR WILLINGNESS TO OFFER ANY SORT OF CHALLENGE TO THE ADMINISTRATION. THOSE WHO SUPPORT THE ADMINISTRATION AND ITS RECKLESS QUEST FOR WHAT IS FALSELY CALLED EQUITY ARE BEING PROMOTED, AND THE COLLEGE FACES A TERRIBLE FINANCIAL CRISIS AS A RESULT OF THE FACT THAT STUDENTS ARE NOT SHOWING UP. HAVING SEEN WHAT THE CAMPUS IS DESCENDING INTO, PEOPLE HAVE DECIDED TO GO ELSEWHERE TO COLLEGE WHICH HAS PUT THE COLLEGE $6 MILLION IN THE RED.>>Tucker: THAT IS ALSO SAD AND CRAZY. SO ALL YOU DID WAS SAY, I’M NOT GOING TO LEAVE BECAUSE I’M THE WRONG SKIN COLOR. I THINK THAT’S THE TRADITIONAL CIVIL RIGHTS POSITION, AND ON WHAT GROUNDS ARE THEY ATTACKING YOU?>>IRONICALLY THE CHALLENGE, THE ONE THAT APPEARS TO RESONATE WITH PEOPLE FROM THE FAR RIGHT AND LEFT, AND IT’S NOT IT’S NOT A THREAT PHONED IN FROM A MAN IN NEW JERSEY WHO CLAIM TO HAVE A GUN AND AT ANY RATE, IT WAS IN NEW JERSEY. BUT THE ARGUMENT IS EFFECTIVELY THAT STANDING UP AND SPEAKING ABOUT WHAT WAS TAKING PLACE WAS BREAKING RANKS IN A WAY THAT DAMAGE THE COLLEGE, BUT WHAT WAS NEVER SAID WAS THAT, YOU INVITED ME TO TALK TO YOU AND YOUR AUDIENCE AT A TIME WHEN THE REST OF THE PRESS WAS LOOKING THE OTHER WAY, AND WHAT IS HARD FOR PEOPLE TO APPRECIATE, WHEN I WAS ON YOUR PROGRAM, THE PRESIDENT OF THE COLLEGE, GEORGE BRIDGES, HAD LITERALLY STOOD DOWN THE POLICE FORCE SO THEY WERE UNABLE TO INTERVENE BETWEEN WRITERS AND MEMBERS OF THE COMMUNITY LIKE MYSELF. AND THE RIOTERS TOOK UP CARRYING BASEBALL BATS AND BATONS AND THEY CHALLENGE PEOPLE THAT DISAGREED WITH THEM PHYSICALLY. IT WAS QUITE A DANGEROUS SITUATION. I WAS APPARENTLY BEING HUNTED FROM CAR TO CAR BY PROTESTERS, I DON’T KNOW WHAT THEY HAD IN MIND BUT, AT A TIME THAT THAT WAS TAKING PLACE IN MY OWN NEIGHBORHOOD, GOING ON A PROGRAM WITH AN AUDIENCE UNDERSTOOD TO BE RIGHT OF CENTER WAS LIKE SOME KIND OF SIN.>>Tucker: THAT IS UNBELIEVABLE. I THOUGHT THEN AND I THINK NOW,

  • These extremist SJW-LBGTQABCDEFG+ idiots and their ideologies are starting to take over the rest of the world outside of the USA…and I’m really worried about my son’s future.

  • Glen Anderson says:

    Although I dont have the same appreciation for evolutionary biology that Bret has, I support his right to free speech. And I support all who push back on the far left.

  • Ah, good old communism descending to America and to the West.
    Got my popcorn and enjoying the show.
    I'm coming from a former communist country so I know how fcuked you are.

  • I M SO HAPPY THAT THE COLLEGE IS IN 6 MILLION DOLLAR IN DEBT HAHAHAHAHA HAHAHAHAHA HAHAHAHAHA HAHAHAHAHA
    WHATS A BETTER KARMA PEOPLE?

  • Carrie Thompson says:

    I'm sorry, but since when have we allowed the students to run the school as they want? If my son was going to a college like that, I'd pull him out so fast his head would spin. What is wrong with these people? This is what the OBAMA administration has done to our country. Enough is enough.

  • raginald7 Mars says:

    Terror by LAW – those demanding and fighting for freedom and Tolerance – are the most Intolerant and tyrannical. USA self destoys. Game over….

  • What does it mean "ordered police step down"? There is a possibility of violence, why does police "stand down"?

  • Evergreen is not a college, they are a leftist supremacist indoctrination camp. The only ones keeping intolerance and racism alive is the left.

  • Why do we tolerate such disrespect!!!! This was pure racism!!!
    Those 50 people should all be arrested and the president of the college fired!!!!
    This is why we have problems….. We let them get away with criminal behavior!!!!
    Who are they to say who is allowed on campus!!!
    Last I knew none of those 50 people owned the campus!

  • That Ebutuoy Guy says:

    President or not no one supersedes a persons right to safety. Police should have maxed and baton George bridges for hindering.

  • I was a tiny white female nursing student in the 80s. I and my parents money would never have gone to that place.

  • To have a day without the impact of whites, remove all electricity, computing devices, plentiful food, all modern medicine and the benefits of modern chemistry. And replace modern simple languages with logical grammar and syntax (and replace them with pictures like Chinese, clicking sounds or other languages so dysfunctional that illiteracy is a natural consequence) given to humans by the white Romans (who enslaved anyone and everyone whites especially), democracy, etc etc etc. Return to a state of nature.

  • Identity politics fundamentally exist because women vote.

    Sensitivity and feelings over reason and logic.

    Female vs Male.

  • Soviet deflector Yuri Bezmenon stated in the early eighties that the level of Marxist subvertion in the US was incredibly high.

  • Those people clapping and snapping their fingers like "Yaaas kween yaaas" they were most probably the lowest common denominator of their own social groups so they decided to apply for studies that require less attention like humanities. That blonde girl for example does not understand half of the terms she's using. Nazis, White Supremacies, like girl what the hell, if so worried about how words matter tons then don't use them so lightly

  • So Mr Professor !That ole second amendment aint looking so bad now huh? When protestors come to your house to harm your family just call the police. Right?

  • Weinstein in s an individual of great integrity, but in my opinion wrongly assumes that there is symmetry & parity between right & left with regard to identity politics

  • Jordan B. Peterson and Bret Weinstein are two beacons of light and voices of sanity in a world full of utter madness.

  • Martin Luther King, god rest his sole, must be turning in his grave, he fought so hard for racial equality for everyone. Now we have a bunch of racist bigots who threaten people with violence for nothing more than the color of their skin.

    The fact that Evergreen has attacked the good professor and not condemned the racists shows who they are.

    Don't send your children to this college folks, they are pure evilness.

  • Weinstein and people like him birthed the SJW movement. Now that the SJW have turned on him he wants our sympathy but always remember Weinstein really has not changed and he is still the enemy of normal citizens

  • Terrel Brown says:

    Professor Weinstein seems to be a very decent and respectable human being. This distinguishes him from the hateful far left administration and students at Evergreen State College.

  • This is truly weird. People (like this guy and Dershowitz) who used to be our political adversaries are being pushed closer to our side by the new radicals who are becoming increasingly bonkers.

  • Vittoria Love says:

    I don't believe all those 200-300 student are lying, they all saying the same things about this racist prof, and as we Can see there are more White student than others race.

  • Vittoria Love says:

    Wether America likes It or not things are really changing, even White student don't want any longer, coment about racist.

  • The Last Sane American says:

    ALL politics has ALWAYS been about identity for the simple reason that humans have yet to shed their tribal mindsets. This has been going on since clan groups deciding on clan leaders.

  • hahahahahahahahahahahaha so stupid stupid stupid ! only in america and i know why! if i say it people will go bananas hahaha

  • the real issue here is as Professor Weinstein explains, is that austerity and underfunding is causing a culture of infighting and protecting turf within the campuses which plays out in identity politics as people fight for the crumbs. So cynically in this interview FOX News laughs and cheers at the campuses descend into chaos, which is a logical result of the massive budget cuts and financial pressures put on the college campuses by their beloved republican party and mates in big business.

  • James Musslewhite says:

    Well the professor may have proved that the evolution theory is perhaps incorrect, as those students and supporting facility clearly shows evidence of devolving rather than evolving…

  • Now do you see the ACLU or civil rights groups backing that white man. Nope, because he is white and those groups are for overcoming white Americans.

  • Social Media, Youtube, and the DNA heritage check, I think these three things are changing people's behavior about identity, They find out they are not who they thought they were, they wonder who they are to people in other countries , they are easily influenced by foreign views. Aristocratic societies with their social class causes jealousies in the socialist realms, Capitalism and free society clashes with the aristocratic and socialistic societies , then they start to complain about freedom because people don't belong to their controlled society, when they arent who they wanted people to conform to, when they cant control who everyone are they start retaliating , anarchy.

  • Lori Elizabeth Wade says:

    What Conservatives want: "The Patriotic Center"; BASIC AMERICAN PRINCIPLES. Most Conservatives are not far right. This is what many Liberals believe. Also, many Conservatives are confusing Antifa and other far left thinkers and groups, along the Left's identity politics, as Democrats are all far Left. We all need to figure this out for the sake of our Constitutional Republic.

  • Who cares about Bret Weinstein? He still supports the political ideology that abused him. LOL!! These liberals are beyond help. Loser.

  • Arnold Tjauw-A-Hing says:

    The other rhetorical question is in which countries does Socialism work? The variants of Socialism are Russian, Chinese, South American, Cuban, European, African, Australian, etc. Is there a difference between Socialism and dictatorship?

  • AmPatriot Smith says:

    Judging by all the comments, the Left is succeeding in dividing America which is their goal, of course. Unfortunately, most are blind to the degradation of the Progressive Left

  • There is scarce truth enough alive to keep societies secure, but security enough to make fellowships accursed.  Much upon this riddle runs the wisdom of the world.

  • American Citizen says:

    Wow, the students did that to a professor who self-identified as a liberal progressive. Can't imagine what the students would have done to a conservative professor…

  • Hope this liberal professor realise that its liberals like them that had planted the evil seeds which eventually gave birth to the more violent liberal deme babies.

  • The Big Lady is the BOSS! says:

    I bet he was a big fan of MSNBC and CNN before this. Now he is on a conservative channel complaining about what he helped to create!!!

  • Popcorn time: Leftists vs Islamists
    Playing for World Wrestling Intolerance championship. Feminists and LGBT activitists should pick their team.
