A professor at Binghamton University used class participation policies inspired by Chinese tyrant Mao Zedong. However, she is now being forced to reverse course after right-wing students raised enough of a commotion to make the university take action against the professor.
According to a report by Logan Dubil at Campus Reform, the “Class Discussion Guidelines” section of Ana Maria Candela’s “Social Change -Introduction to Sociology” syllabus directs white male students to allow “non-white folks” to speak before these white male students can speak. The guidelines start off with a quotation about speaking from Chairman Mao.
Mao was the founding father of the People’s Republic of China and Chairman of the Chinese Communist Party. During his rule from 1943 to 1976, Mao presided over tyrannical experiments such as the “Great Leap Forward” and the “Cultural Revolution” which resulted in the deaths of tens of millions of people.
“No investigation, no right to speak,” the quote stated in the document for the “Social Change -Introduction to Sociology” class at Binghamton University.
The quotation “helps to convey the idea that speaking, during class discussions, should be based on having done your investigative work,” Candela stated.
The professor’s work primarily “focuses on Chinese migrations to Latin America and on the global dimensions of Chinese history and China’s social transformations,” per her university webpage.
Candela used “progressive stacking” to determine how much they participate and speak during class discussions. Race and gender were factored in determining who should receive speaking priorities, according to the syllabus that Campus Reform was able to obtain.
At its core, “progressive stacking” relies on students’ race and gender to determine if their ideas have merit and how much they can interact in discussions.
“This [policy] means that wetry to give priority to non-white folks, to women, and to shy and quiet people who rarely raise their hands,” the syllabus outline. “It also means that if you are white, male, or someone privileged by the racial and gender structures of our society to have your voice easily voiced and heard, we will often ask you to hold off on your questions or comments to give others priority and will come back to you a bit later or at another time.”
When Campus Reform reached out to Ryan Yarosh, the senior director of media and public relations, he revealed that Candela was “counseled” by the university because her class syllabus was not in compliance with the 2021-2022 Faculty-Staff Handbook.
However, outrage stemming from the revelation of these controversial course guidelines has prompted Candela to take out the section of her syllabus that priortizes non-white studetns participation in class discussions.
According to a National Review report, Binghamton University compelled Candela to remove this part of her syllabus after determining that the guidelines were in violation of the university‘s faculty staff handbook.
Universities have become leftist think tanks and must be exposed for the type of leftist ideas that are allowed to proliferate within their confines. Right-wing student organizations must expose any type of leftist shenanigans going down in these institutions.
That said, national populists must embrace more radical measures such as defunding universities and firing academics who promote leftist poison on campus. Extreme times require extreme measures.
