According to a report by Jessica Custodio of Campus Reform, an English professor at Iowa State University directed her students to not oppose abortion or Black Lives Matter in any of their coursework.
Young America’s Foundation reported that ISU English Professor Chloe Clark set forth in her English 250 syllabus that a number of political viewpoints cannot be discussed in class or in any homework assignments.
“GIANT WARNING: any instances of othering that you participate in intentionally (racism, sexism, ableism, homophobia, [sic], sorophobia, transphobia, classism, mocking of mental health issues, body shaming, etc) in class are grounds for dismissal from the classroom,” Clark’s syllabus reportedly read. In addition, she said that the same warning is applicable “for any papers/projects”, and informs students that any writing that voices opposition to abortion, gay marriage, and Black Lives matter will not be tolerated.
“You cannot choose any topic that takes at its base that one side doesn’t deserve the same basic human rights as you do (ie: no arguments against gay marriage, abortion, Black Lives Matter,etc). I take this seriously,” the syllabus detailed.
Clark noted in her syllabus that students have the right to request a trigger warning at any time, since the class is centered on “monster theory” and some of the course content may feature “violent or disturbing imagery.”
According to an article in the Iowa State Daily, Clark was in charge of a “Feminist Friday” focus group during the fall 2019 semester where she alluded to monster theory to describe how certain “privileged” groups “other” less privileged groups.
In the focus group she led, Clark told students that the use of the phrase “illegal immigrant” comes with a negative connotation.
Clark also said that “when you’re thinking about the way that you are talking, you don’t have to think ‘Oh no, I am a terrible person because I accidentally othered this group’, instead just be cognizant that you did and then think about how you can do better the next time that you talk about it.” Furthermore, she told her students that “You shouldn’t feel guilty, you can’t change the way you were born, but you can use your privilege in productive ways.”
Clark also participates in an online publication called “Cotton Xenomorph.” The website features a section called “NO CREEPS,” which it explained means “anything with language of oppression. That means: prejudice, racism, xenophobia, classism, sexism, ableism, serophobia, fat-shaming, intolerance of religion, homophobia, etc.”
In a correspondence with Campus Reform, Iowa State University spokeswoman Angie Hunt said that the syllabus did not comply with ISU standards and has been revised.
“The syllabus statement as written was inconsistent with the university’s standards and its commitment to the First Amendment rights of students. After reviewing the issue with the faculty member, the syllabus has been corrected to ensure it is consistent with university policy,” remarked Hunt. “Moreover, the faculty member is being provided additional information regarding the First Amendment policies of the University,”
In addition, the spokeswoman noted that the university does not pursue disciplinary action against students for the viewpoints they take.
“Iowa State is firmly committed to protecting the First Amendment rights of its students, faculty, and staff. With respect to student expression in the classroom including the completion of assignments, the university does not take disciplinary action against students based on the content or viewpoints expressed in their speech,” she continued.
Ryan Hurley, president of the ISU College Republicans, expressed to Campus Reform that he was “disappointed” with ISU when he received word about what the syllabus contained.
“I know those rules are pretty much in most classes now sadly, just not written,” commented Hurley. “I was also disappointed at the professor getting a very small slap on the wrist for this, if it had been the other way around (if it had said ‘you cannot support gay marriage, abortion, and BLM’ I’m sure the professor would be fired.”
Years of leftist infiltration is now making universities reach their logical destination — total censorship of dissenting opinions.
Right wingers may have to consider completely opting out of these institutions and supporting alternative models that actually promote education and are tolerant of conservative values. Failing to do so, will only guarantee that millions of youth continue going through the leftist indoctrination conveyor belt.
Flashback: Ann Coulter Warns Steve Bannon about Donald Trump’s Hires During 2016
Coulter tells it like it is.
Earlier this week, former White House adviser Steve Bannon reached out to President Donald Trump, in an apparent move to reconcile with the president. Bannon was one of the more renowned advisors in the Trump administration who received a lot of attention for his unconventional views. The former White House adviser is likely looking for Trump to pardon him for several federal criminal charges that he is currently facing.
Bannon was one of the strongest contrarian voices on the right who questioned traditional conservative dogma on free trade and immigration. His rise to prominence represented a raw, populist anger that was building within the Republican Party base. Bannon ended up leaving the Trump administration after the infamous Charlottesville rally. This left a massive void for populist voices within the Trump brain trust, which was never adequately filled with populist figures.
Most of the strong populist voices during the Trump era came from the outside. Conservative commentator Ann Coulter has been one of the leading figures trying to steer populist discourse in America.Although a harsh critic, Coulter did her best to hold President Trump accountable and watch his every move, especially personnel decisions that did not align with his America first vision. To the average pro-Trump individual, Coulter’s criticism may come off as abrasive, but it was and still is necessary to have a viable nationalist movement.
As a reminder to her followers about how she knew that there were subversive elements in the Trump administration who wanted to gut the president’s America First agenda and pursue more traditional Republican policies, she tweeted about email correspondence she had with Bannon dating back to December 2, 2016. In light of the rapprochement between Bannon and Trump, Coulter called attention to how she warned the former White House adviser about some of the latter’s questionable staffing decisions during the early stages of his presidency.
Coulter tweeted, “No, actually, I knew Trump was betraying us pretty early on – and that it would cost him re-election. My December 2, 2016 email to Steve Bannon:”

In an email sent on December 2, 2016 with a subject line titled “ghost of christmas future”, Coulter warned then-White House adviser Bannon about some of Trump’s hiring decisions.
She first noted that “the fact that Trump is even CONSIDERING rep. Mccaul (rubio in the house) for homeland — and is NOT considering kobach— tells me we’re not getting any major deportations, no removal of refugees, no e-verify, no end to end anchor babies… and trump will be dead.
also, “mad dog” isn’t going to build a wall.”
She was referring to Texas Congressman Michael McCaul, a known mass migration booster and a potential nominee for the head of the Department of Homeland Security. United States Marine Corps General James Matthis would be Trump’s first Secretary of Defense, who ended up turning out to be a Deep State hack. On the other hand, Kris Kobach is a nationally recognized immigration hawk, who gained fame for implementing some of the stiffest voter ID standards in the nation during his time as Secretary of State.
The Trump administration was successful in implementing several administrative changes that limited immigration and also did not get involved in any nation-building engagements like previous administrations.
Nevertheless, Coulter’s incisive suggestions still have use for future Republican administrations. The new GOP should follow Coulter’s pro-migration restriction suggestions if it wants to not only remain politically relevant, but also protect the integrity of America’s political system.
