She’s now a pro-abortion feminist who panders to the LGBTQ community. But there was a time when Hillary Clinton was a “Goldwater Girl,” named for 1964 Republican presidential candidate Barry Goldwater, and conservative in her political outlook. All of that changed when she went to college and attended Wellesley and Yale.

Today, Hillary-type women are the norm, not the exception. You can see this for yourself in the videos or pictures of young women screaming for their “rights” to abort the unborn. Some women even say they’re proud of their own abortions.

Colleges and universities are mostly to blame for this sad state of affairs. Consider that the Department of Women’s Studies at the University of Maryland has just announced that a full-time tenure-track position has opened up for an Assistant Professor specializing in LGBTQ studies.

The Department of Women’s Studies at the University of Maryland (UMD) already includes 11 core faculty and more than 80 affiliate faculty. “We have grown from 232 students in 3 courses in 1971 to over 1,366 students enrolled in Women’s Studies and LGBT courses for fall 2014,” the department says.

You can bet these graduating classes constitute armies for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign in 2016.

Students being taught “women’s studies” or “LGBTQ studies” at UMD may not get jobs in the ordinary sense, but they are being trained as “change agents,” determined to overturn the capitalist and patriarchal power structure. For most of these women, motherhood is an old-fashioned concept that keeps women oppressed.

An upcoming feminist conference openly dedicated to “social justice, activism, and revolution” is sponsored by the University of Maryland and “inspired” by Grace Lee Boggs, a Marxist who was a member of a communist splinter group called the Workers Party.

PBS aired a film about Boggs, saying that she had “a thick FBI file and a surprising vision of what an American revolution can be.”

We are now in the midst of that revolution.

When Boggs died, President Obama released a statement, saying, “Michelle and I were saddened to hear of the passing of author, philosopher, and activist Grace Lee Boggs.” He added that “Grace dedicated her life to serving and advocating for the rights of others—from her community activism in Detroit, to her leadership in the civil rights movement, to her ideas that challenged us all to lead meaningful lives.”

It seems as if Grace was part of Obama’s “fundamental transformation” of the United States. It’s not known if they were more than acquaintances, but it is certainly significant that he felt it necessary to acknowledge her role in community organizing and activism.

Of course, Obama was trained by an organization founded by one of history’s top community organizers, Saul Alinsky, while Hillary studied Alinsky in college and wrote her thesis on his revolutionary strategies. That seems like more than a coincidence.

For her part, Boggs’ legacy is also being celebrated in academia, especially at UMD.

We don’t know what the new teaching job pays, but the Search Committee Chair, Dr. LaMonda Horton-Stallings, is paid an annual $120,000 salary. We know this because the student newspaper, The Diamondback, published the salary guide to the state-funded university. Her first book was titled, Mutha is Half a Word!: Intersections of Folklore, Vernacular, Myth, and Queerness in Black Female Culture. Her latest book is, Funk the Erotic: Transaesthetics and Black Sexual Cultures.

We are told the successful candidate should be able to work across multiple disciplines and have expertise in one or more of the following areas:

  • Critical Race, Queer, or Transgender Theory/Studies/Policy
  • Disability Studies/Crip Theory
  • Transnational Genders and Sexualities, esp. Masculinities Across Racial Lines
  • Gender and Sexuality in Performance Studies and Visual Culture

The Department of Women’s Studies at the University of Maryland offers B.A. and Ph.D. degrees in Women’s Studies, undergraduate certificates in LGBT Studies and Women’s Studies, a minor in LGBT Studies, a joint minor in Black Women’s Studies (with African American Studies), and a graduate certificate in Women’s Studies.

One of the courses is described as follows:

  • LGBT398A: The Queer Child taught by Jessica Vooris. This interdisciplinary course draws on psychology, literature, history, trans studies, queer theory, and childhood studies, to examine how we think about children’s gender and sexuality.

Here are some of the questions to be tackled:

  • Why do many assume that a feminine boy will be gay, but think that a seven-year-old is too young to self-identify as a lesbian?
  • Why do parents think it is threatening to have a transgender six-year old girl share a bathroom with their children?
  • What is it like to navigate elementary school as a six-year-old trans girl?

On September 16 the University of Maryland is sponsoring “Reimaging Everything: Women of Color, Feminisms, Art, Culture, and the Humanities Symposium.” This is the event “inspired by the words of revolutionary Grace Lee Boggs,” whose favorite books include C.L.R. James’s Notes on Dialectics: Left Hegelianism or Marxism-Leninism?

Dialectics is a Marxist way of describing and instigating social change. C.L.R. James was a Trinidad-born Marxist writer and activist.

The New Left Project reports that she sometimes wrote under a pseudonym of “Ria Stone” and co-authored “several insightful and pioneering works of Marxist theory,” including The Invading Socialist Society and State Capitalism and World Revolution.

Some chapters in the latter include:

  • The Stalinists and the Theory of State-Capitalism
  • Lenin and State-Capitalism
  • Rearming the Party of World Revolution

 Her book, The Next American Revolution: Sustainable Activism For the 21st Century, is said to document how “A world dominated by America and driven by cheap oil, easy credit, and conspicuous consumption is unraveling before our eyes.” Grace Lee Boggs “shows how to create the radical social change we need to confront new realities,” it says.

Radical social change is certainly what is being taught in the UMD Department of Women’s Studies. A newsletter article explains what some of its graduates are doing and their achievements. These are direct quotes:

  • I know now that I have a commitment to myself, to the women who came before me who paved the way, and to the girls that will come after me to always lift as I climb and to never give up while doing so.
  • I plan to work in trans healthcare.
  • Aspires to be a change agent, educator and interdisciplinary scholar.
  • Plans to pursue a career in television news production and draw on her women’s studies education to give a voice to the voiceless through her news coverage.

Ah-hah! Now it all makes sense. Some of these women’s and queer studies graduates are getting jobs in the media.

But didn’t we already know that?

The “on media” section of a website dedicated to Grace Lee Boggs cites her appearances on the old Melissa Harris-Perry show on MSNBC and with Bill Moyers on public television, where she said, “We are the leaders we’ve been looking for.”

Clearly, her followers are in the media, as well as academia and the White House.

    Same-sex marriage. Abortion and infanticide by the millions. Brazen occult imagery at the Super Bowl, the Grammy Awards, and the Oscars. Teaching sodomy to our five year olds in public schools. Allowing monuments to Satan in public places. The body politic seems to have gone insane.

    The “fundamental transformation” of the United States of America—from a Constitutional Republic to whatever it is today—a banana republic, socialist-totalitarian empire, whatever—is complete. In other words, the United States of America, as we knew and loved her, is dead.

    Many have said the US has been moribund for a while now, and some have long-since declared it already dead. So while the exact date of the death of the Republic is certainly debatable, what is—or should be—beyond debate at this point is that our cherished nation is gone.

    But we cannot pretend that anything we do will put a check on the Federal Leviathan’s brazen criminal lawlessness or that of our ruling class.

    Man it must suck to see the world evolving and leaving you behind. Am I right, Kincaid? Schmuck.

  • IronChefSandwiches

    Then GTFO you pinheaded dumbass. If it’s really that bad…leave.

    You are a delusional, low information, low IQ moron.

    And we MUST remember that the lying, cheating, scandalous gash, $chitlery, has already promised that if she gets in, she will continue taking in as many savage animals from the ME under the guise of “refugees”. They are one of the main reasons Britain decided to exit the EU, they forever changed the social landscape. This is what the gash and the elephant eared porch monkey DON’T want us to know is going on in Europe…

    This is further proof that discrimination against whites, heterosexuals and males is now the law of the land. This will only get worse when the bribe-taking baby-killing bulldyke reaches the presidency through Hitlerian viciousness and mendacity, billions in Chicom and Saudi cash, armies of “voters” from Oaxaca and Tegucigalpa, rioters and government-released criminals in the streets and the frantic importation by the regime of refujihadis from the Ummah. It is likely that the leather-clad liar from Lesbos will have a state of emergency and martial law in place within the year, and will as she has promised use the police power of the state to change our culture, our beliefs and our religion. It is clear that the Philadelphia Republic died on its 240th birthday, as Benjamin Franklin feared that it one day would. What is needed now is a national uprising of the type that the Spanish people had the courage to begin 80 years ago this month, which brought the communist fundamental transformation of their country to a halt.

    From The Declaration of Independence, “That to secure these Rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just Powers from the Consent of the Governed, that whenever any form of Government becomes destructive of these Ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its Foundation on such Principles, and organizing its Powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness”.
    It might take another 1776 to upright this morally corrupt and bankrupt Nation.

    This just might be the most delusional piece of right wing claptrap I’ve ever read. Well played, sir.

    No doubt. White, heterosexual males have taken it in the ear. it’s all over for us. We used to have the unions to promote our cause … and politicians also used to promote our cause. But … that’s all gone now. It’s all about women, Hispanics, African-Americans, LGBTQs, and a whole host of other special interest mini-minorities. Even if Trump is elected … he’ll end up kissing the a**es of the special interest groups and mini-minorities … and white, heterosexual males of European heritage will be little more than after-thoughts.

    As a moral society, the United States, is finished. I believe that God has taken away His protection for America. We are, mostly, a Godless country. People don’t want to follow God or have any absolutes. They want to do anything they feel is right for them. As the article says, women are bragging about their abortions and having them as birth control. Used to be that was such an embarrassment. We’ve been living on borrowed time. Both Parties today are much alike. We got a 8 year reprieve with Ronald Reagan otherwise government was corrupt. Nixon hated conservatives and couldn’t even say the word. The supposed FDR prolonged the Great Depression by all his government handouts. That’s the government and people tend to be like the ones in power. Look what happened when Bill Clinton had oral sex in his office. Teenagers started having oral sex figuring if it’s alright for the president to do this, then it’s OK for me. Yes! We’re done as a country. Yes! This country is done. Come Novembers election if it’s either Trump or Hillary, which both are Godless and immoral people America loses. Whenever an Empire, such as the Roman or Ottoman, throws God aside they are finished.

    But we have to fight. Christians endured the Diocletian Persecutions. We endured the Dark Ages of Europe. Trump 2016 is a great start, in my opinion. Make a stand.
