In the wide, wide world of places to go, and things to see…from time to time we all like to watch entities that appear to look quite a bit like ourselves, but think nothing of performing acts of self-gratification, ala Pee Wee Herman, and throw their own poo at the crowd of spectators.
Of course, I’m either talking about going to the zoo and standing in front of the monkey enclosure…or…watching liberals being liberals.
For the sake of this article, I’ve packed a travel bag, a couple of sandwiches and a soda and I’m off to Looneyville in an attempt to explain the behavior of liberal monkeys.
Oh, don’t think that I’m relocating…
Today’s excursion takes us to view a particular little monkey who just happens to be a liberal professor who is also, by the way, the head of Purdue University’s School of Engineering Education.
One, Donna Riley, who has penned an article and an abstract to it in the supposedly “scholarly” journal, Engineering Studies.
In her writings…the writings of a liberal monkey charged with indoctrinating the youth of America, Donna Riley claims that “Academic rigor accomplishes dirty deeds.”
Riley says “Understanding how rigor reproduces inequality, we cannot reinvent it but rather must relinquish it.”
This would be a good time to explain exactly what is meant by the term, “academic rigor.”
Academic rigor is simply…working hard at learning something, which by any rational account, is a good thing, and certainly something one would not only expect of engineering students, but a key component of what should be demanded of engineering students.
After all, we don’t want a bunch of slackers designing and/or building things that require engineers, as that would seem, at least at first blush, to pose a danger to just about everybody.
The little liberal monkey, Donna Riley went on to state that…and I’m not making this up…that “rigor has a historical lineage of being about hardness, stiffness, and erectness; its sexual connotations — and links to masculinity in particular.”
She says that it’s “undeniable.”
Let me translate this for those who aren’t fluent in liberal nonsense…
Donna Riley, who will from this point on be referred to as the “Flunky Monkey” is saying, is that rigor…defined as hard work…carries with it what she calls “a historical lineage” of people who engage in it running amok with erector sets in their pants. You know…trouser tents…stiffies…a bone of their own…an omnipresent Michelle Obama woody.
And she claims that it is…”undeniable.”
Oh for Pete’s sake. Seriously? And she’s indoctrinating the youth of America with this liberal crap?
The “Flunky Monkey” then doubles down in this inane notion by stating that, “My visceral reaction in many conversations where I have seen rigor asserted has been to tell parties involved (regardless of gender) to whip them out and measure them already.”
A word of caution here, not that Michelle Obama would ever be accused of exhibiting a sense of working hard…but on the off chance she shows up somewhere…with a tape measure…stand back as we have no idea how big that thing might get.
That said…”Flunky Monkey” is actually trying to convince us that hard workers…regardless of gender (hence Michelle Obama) want their collective privates measured…at least when having a conversation with little Miss Monkey.
This little “Flunky Monkey” is literally obsessed with that certain part of the male anatomy. She’s suffering from what might well be the most acute case of penis envy I’ve ever heard of, and one that will eventually cause the rewriting of psychiatric journals.
She’s actually admitting that every time she has a conversation with an engineering student, and one can reasonably conclude that as the head of Purdue University’s School of Engineering Education, she has a damn good many such conversations, her thoughts turn to the penis size of whomever it might be who is conversing with her…be that a man or a woman.
Question, if the “Flunky Monkey” takes a call from a student…is that classified as phone sex? If she is texting…is she really sexting?
Okay…so much for the self-gratification part of our little foray into Loonyville, and on to the poop throwing portion of this whole thing.
“Flunky Monkey” goes on to state in her paper, that…academic rigor “can reinforce gender, race, and class hierarchies in engineering, and maintain invisibility of queer, disabled, low-income, and other marginalized engineering students.”
I tell you, I’m not making this stuff up…she actually believes, and is actively indoctrinating the youth of America to believe that…academic rigor…the act of studying really hard…reinforces gender, race and class hierarchies…that it is somehow RACIST to study really hard…that it not fair to women for men to study really hard, and that it just isn’t fair where economic statistics are concerned for any student to study really hard as poorer students feel…lower self-esteem…when someone a rung or more up the economic ladder actually applies themselves to their studies.
“Flunky Monkey” also claims that studying really hard is something that only straight people are capable of doing, because, in her liberal world, it maintains “the invisibility of queer, disabled, low-income, and other marginalized engineering students.”
Let’s just all hope and pray that at Purdue University, there are no poor, handicapped, gay engineering students, lest they commit hari kari next Thursday.
Okay, let’s recap here so that we’re all on the same page…
“Flunky Monkey,” the head of Purdue University’s School of Engineering Education, firmly (and I use that term with a great deal of caution in this case) believes that all of her engineering students who engage in academic rigor…the process of pouring themselves into their studies… are gallivanting about campus with something at least the size of a Little League participation trophy in their pants…that every time she has a conversation with one of them, they want her to accurately assess the physical size of said trophy…and that those of her students who work hard to actually learn something have the magical ability to make poor, disabled and gay students…vanish into thin air.
While the physics department may have an issue, at least with the last part of that recap, let’s move on and find out what it is, exactly, that the little “Flunky Monkey” suggests be done about all of this…and her solution is…bone-crushingly absurd.
“Flunky Monkey actually suggests, in writing for all the world to see, that…the very notion of academic rigor…students working really, really hard at their studies so as to get the highest possible grades, and later, important and high-paying jobs in all the various engineering fields… is something of which we must “do away with.”
“Flunky Monkey” says, “This is not about reinventing rigor for everyone, it is about doing away with the concept altogether so we can welcome other ways of knowing. Other ways of being. It is about criticality and reflexivity.”
Then, she doubled down on this abjectly absurd line of thinking by stating, again…in writing… “We need these other ways of knowing to critique rigor, and to find a place to start to build a community for inclusive and holistic engineering education.”
Holistic engineering? What in THE hell is “holistic engineering,” and do we really want everything from our nation’s infrastructure to space ships, medical technology and anything else one can conjure up upon which our very lives depend to be engineered by a gaggle of holistic common core slackers?
Or would we rather the next bridge we drive across, or the next plane in which we fly, or the technology involved in our next life-saving surgery be engineered by somebody who studied really, really hard, got the best grades, and exhibits rational thought while applying scientific fact to the problem at hand?
I know what I’d prefer, and I’m reasonably sure I know what most people with a working brain cell would prefer…but not “Flunky Monkey.” Goodness no…what she wants, as the head of Purdue University’s School of Engineering Education …is for every crop of engineers who fulfill their liberal indoctrination quota…to be as dumb as dirt, and happier than a self-gratifying zoo monkey about it.
Finally, according to the “Flunky Monkey,” “scientific knowledge itself is gendered, raced, and colonizing.” She claims that within the field of engineering, and the study of it, there exists an “inherent masculinist, white, and global North bias…all under a guise of neutrality.”
Global north bias?
Okay, I looked it up and here’s what I found…”Research suggests that north-south positions on maps have psychological consequences. In general, north is associated with richer people, more expensive real estate, and higher altitude, while south is associated with poorer people, cheaper prices, and lower altitude (the “north-south bias”). When participants were presented with south-up oriented maps, this north-south bias disappeared.“
In other words…if you’ve studied hard enough to know that the north pole, where Santa lives, is at the top of the globe…you’re an elitist, materialistic altitude enhanced prick…but if you just happen to be a “Flunky Monkey” graduate assistant…where you make believe that the south pole where penguins live is on the top of the globe…you’re destined to be as sharp as a bowling ball, as poor as church mouse, altitude challenged and PROUD of it.
Therefore…why apply yourself to your engineering studies when being a holistic slacker in the field of engineering who couldn’t, for the very life of you, figure out how to slide tab “A” into slot “B” can, or at least should, get you a gig drawing up the instructions and schematics for the next space station?
In January, 1961, a bunch of really, really smart engineers at NASA, who apparently had engaged in years, if not decades of academic rigor, designed a ship that took Ham the Chimp into space.
While the flight was considered a rousing success, perhaps the biggest mistake we ever made was returning ol’ Ham to earth alive…which of course brought about the second biggest mistake ever made…naming one of his descendants as the head of Purdue University’s School of Engineering Education thus allowing her to indoctrinate young minds in the ways of liberalism…because…
Monkey see…monkey do.
