The Dome is Still Tarnished: Notre Dame, Criminals, and Lower Academic Standards for Black Athletes

PK Note: In a week or so, the most personal book I've done yet (Opiate of America: College Football in Black and White) will be released. Tomorrow, SBPDL will publish an article on Paul "Bear" Bryant that will correctly argue his legacy is far worse than the one of Joe Paterno at Penn State.

Much will be made about the recent comments by former Notre Dame fullback and current radio analyst for the Irish football broadcasts Allen Pinkett, who on an appearance on WSCR-AM 670 in Chicago said (Allen Pinkett: Notre Dame needs 'criminals' to be successful, South Bend Tribune, August 29, 2012):
Controversy is brewing over comments made by Notre Dame football radio analyst and former Irish running back Allen Pinkett.

During an appearance on WSCR-AM 670 in Chicago, Pinkett said Notre Dame needs a few “bad citizens” in order to win.

"I've always felt like to have a successful team you've got to have a few bad citizens on the team," Pinkett. "That's how Ohio State used to win all the time. They would have two or three guys that were criminals and that just adds to the chemistry of the team. I think Notre Dame is growing because maybe they have some guys that are doing something worthy of a suspension which creates edge on the football team.

"You can't have a football team full of choirboys,” Pinkett continued. “You get your butt kicked if you've got a team full of choirboys so you've got to have a little bit of edge. But the coach has to be the dictator and the ultimate ruler. Here's my opinion: You don't hand out suspensions unless you know you've got somebody behind that guy that can make plays."

Pinkett’s words were part of a discussion over the recent two-game suspensions of Cierre Wood and Justin Utupo on top of the earlier one-game suspensions for Tommy Rees and Carlo Calabrese.

Given a chance to back off his comments, Pinkett kept going.

"I absolutely meant that," Pinkett said. "The chemistry is so important on a football team. You have to have a couple of bad guys that sort of teeter on that edge to add to the flavor of the guys that are going to always do right because that just adds to the chemistry of the football team. You have to have ... you look at the teams that have won in the past they have always had a couple of criminals."
Let's be honest: Pinkett wants the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame to field teams that resemble the coal Black football squads of the Southeastern Conference (SEC). Caste football reports that since 2005, Notre Dame has started (out of 22 players 11 on offense and 11 on defense) 10, 11, 11, 11, 10, 10, 11, and now 12 white players, which is well above the average of the your typical SEC squad.

Last year, the University of Georgia started two white players in the opening season loss to Boise State (which started 16 white players); three years ago, the University of Florida secured an all-Black recruiting class, which now Ohio State head coach - then the Florida head coach - correctly stated was full of thugs.

But he recruited them all. It would be in this past years Gator Bowl between Florida and Ohio State that we would see the type of "thug" athlete Pinkett hopes to one day wear the cherished golden helmet at Notre Dame (Buckeye linebacker calls foul on race-baiting Gators, Graham Watson, January 3, 2012, Yahoo! Sports):
Trash talking is as old as football itself. A player baiting another player with a taunt or threat is usually par for the course during any game, especially a game between rivals or with championship significance.
So, it was no surprise that Monday's Gator Bowl between Florida and Ohio State — two teams that have loved Urban Meyer — had a little more vitriol than usual. What was surprising was the type of caustic comments being said.
Ohio State linebacker Tyler Moeller said Florida players hurled racial slurs at him throughout the game and that that sparked some of the chippiness during the 24-17 Florida win.

"They're classless. That's the way I'd put it," Moeller said, according to Marcus Hartman from Buckeye Sports Bulletin. "I've never seen more people swing at our players and call us racial slurs. I've never been called a 'cracker' more in my life than I have today. So I don't really have much respect for them in terms of that but they're a good team. They came out and outplayed us today."
Notre Dame prides itself in having high academic standards, which Heisman Trophy winner Paul Hornung asserted in 2004 was the reason the Irish were having so much trouble winning games on the gridiron (Hornung: Irish should still lower standards, April 1, 2004, ESPN.com):
Former Notre Dame great Paul Hornung has apologized for controversial comments he made on how the Fighting Irish can improve their football fortunes.

Hornung told Detroit's AM-1270 The Sports Station, an ESPN radio affiliate, on Tuesday that Notre Dame must ease up on its academic restrictions because "we gotta get the black athlete. We must get the black athlete if we're going to compete," Hornung said.
Hornung was asked in the interview about the state of college football and why it seems that there "just aren't giants anymore."
"No, no," Hornung said in agreement. The interviewer asked, "Is it limited scholarships?" Hornung then gave his response.
Hornung said that Notre Dame's schedule was a factor in his having that opinion.
"You can't play that type of schedule," Hornung said. "We're playing eight bowl teams next year ... and it's always year in and year out ... one of the toughest schedules.
"You can't play a schedule like that unless you have the black athlete today. You just can't do it, and it's very, very tough, still, to get into Notre Dame. They just don't understand it, yet they want to win."
Notre Dame spokesman Matthew Storin called Hornung an illustrious alumnus but objected to his comments.
"We strongly disagree with the thesis of his remarks," Storin said in a statement. "They are generally insensitive and specifically insulting to our past and current African-American student-athletes."
 Like Stanford, perhaps only 350 - 400 of the 3500 high school athletes who sign letters of intent with Football Bowl Series (FBS) schools meet the academic requirements to get into Notre Dame. Michael Rosenberg pointed out that Notre Dame still prides itself in maintaining high academic standards, while football factories in the SEC accept partial qualifiers into their schools; thereby cheapening the degrees real students earn:
This is an ongoing debate at Notre Dame, between playing like a champion today and excelling in school from Monday to Friday. The school boasts one of the great winning traditions in American sports history, but it also has a history of worrying that football is too important at such a fine university. When the team has been too successful, the administration sometimes tightened academic standards or otherwise tried to reel it in. Notre Dame never wanted to be Alabama.
And even in this big-money era, when the entire enterprise feels like pro sports, Notre Dame is determined to be Notre Dame. When the NCAA announced its Academic Progress Rate scores in June, 17 Irish teams posted multi-year scores in the top 10 percent of the sport. That was more than any other Division I school in the country. Duke was second with 13. Boston College, Northwestern and Stanford each had 10. (The Irish football team was not one of the 17, but the football team has posted consistently strong APR scores.)
Notre Dame has tried to blend its athletes into the rest of the university, to make them go to class, to treat them like regular students.
You could say Notre Dame is stuck in the past. I think the rest of college football is stuck in the present.
Pinkett should be applauding his school. Columnists who rip Notre Dame for not winning enough (I have occasionally made cracks myself) should also be congratulating Notre Dame for remembering that the football team is a branch of the University, not the trunk or the roots. Twenty years ago, Notre Dame was one of the top five programs in college football. The Irish won the 1988 national title and came within a field goal of winning one in 1993. Lou Holtz brought in top-five recruiting classes every year. The program created future NFL stars like Tim Brown, Jerome Bettis and Ricky Watters.
Those were the glory days, but there were also some days that made administrators uncomfortable. A book called "Under the Tarnished Dome: How Notre Dame Betrayed Ideals for Football Glory," included accusations of steroid use, academic misconduct and a coach (Holtz) who cared only about winning.
Administrators decided to make some changes. Holtz desperately wanted to bring in a young, troubled receiver from West Virginia who loved Notre Dame. The administration denied him admission. His name was Randy Moss. He might have helped the passing game a bit.
Holtz left. The school has not won much of consequence since, in part because of poor hirings, and in part because, in this ultra-competitive age, even Notre Dame needs to do a lot of things really well in order to have a chance to win.
If all schools played by the same academic rules, then recruiting "criminals" (Black players) as Mr. Pinkett put it, wouldn't happen. Starting in 2016, the NCAA is adopting new academic rules that will hit Black athletes hardest, making it difficult for the SEC to continue to enroll "criminals" into their institutions:
The latest changes in eligibility standards will apply to this fall's high school freshman class, but we won't know their full effect until 2016, when those students prepare to step foot on college campuses. They are already sending ripples through the college community because they are so drastic -- a jump in the required minimum GPA from 2.0 to 2.3 and, perhaps more challenging, a rule that requires high school athletes to complete 10 of their 16 required core courses before their senior year of high school.
35.2: Percentage of football players who enrolled in 2009-10 but would not meet the 2016 academic standards
This measure sounds interestingly like that of Prop 48 from the 1980s, which the New York Times whined in 1988 kept Black athletes ineligible for enrollment at major universities:
The majority of college football recruits disqualified because of Proposition 48 this year are black, according to a survey by The Associated Press. The survey also found that the overall number of academically ineligible recruits has stabilized. 
The survey was able to identify the race of 213 of the 274 recruits disqualified this year by Proposition 48, or 77.7 percent. A total of 185 of those recruits are black, 86.8 percent.
Critics have said that these numbers show that standardized tests such as those used under Proposition 48 are culturally biased.
''We know that standardized test scores are correlated with socioeconomic status,'' said Ursula Walsh, director for research for the National Collegiate Athletic Association.
Walsh said black recruits accounted for 81 percent of football ineligibles in 1986 and 90 percent in 1987, according to an N.C.A.A. survey. Aptitude Tests Defended.

Proposition 48 requires recruits to score a minimum 700 out of a possible 1,600 points on the Scholastic Aptitude Test, or 15 out of 36 on the American College Test, and have at least a 2.0 high school grade-point average in 11 mandatory courses to be eligible. Difference in Average Scores
In 1987, the average S.A.T. score nationally for all students was 906. The average score for blacks was 728.
The 274 recruits who failed to meet the N.C.A.A.'s academic requirements this year was a slight improvement over the 278 last year.
 Having academic standards (and character standards) would put schools in the same category as that of Brigham Young University, with its dreaded "honor code" and academic requirements that harken back to a world untouched by the "criminals" who now populate major college football rosters. Especially in the SEC.

Steve Sailer has a great writeup on Notre Dame, race, and academic standards (from the mid-2000s), with this particular admission worth noting:
And Brian S. Wise in Intellectual Conservative has some inside sources on how Notre Dame won its last national championship back in 1988:

Having been born and raised in South Bend has allowed me the chance to accumulate a few sources inside Notre Dame’s football program over the years; one was unavailable for this column, another told me that the things people should know are generally those they aren’t supposed to know at all. For example, that academic exceptions have been made when it mattered most, especially under Lou Holtz between 1986 and 1990. Todd Lyght (cornerback), Tony Rice (quarterback), Raghib Ismail (wide receiver), Bryant Young (defensive lineman) and Jerome Bettis (running back) are just five examples of very good players admitted with less than stellar academic backgrounds. All but Rice played in the NFL, they all managed to graduate. The point is that if the University truly had standards set in stone – as it suggested in a press release Wednesday – none of those players, and in that I mean none of them, would have ever been admitted.

Said my source, “If Tony Rice’s transcript and SAT scores were brought into the admissions office today, they would be set on fire.”
Nothing ever changes. In 2022, we'll be having this same conversation: why can't Notre Dame recruit more non-white athletes to help the Irish win football games, when SEC schools like Auburn, Alabama, Georgia, LSU, Florida, Tennessee, and South Carolina recruit Black athletes (excuse me, "Criminals" per Pinkett's lexicon) who couldn't spell S-E-C if you spotted them the S and the E.

The book Beyond the Cheers: Race as Spectacle in College Sports by C. Richard King and Charles Springwood has some hilariously honest quotes from Father Theodore Hesburgh, the man who served as president of Notre Dame during some of its greatest football heights (p. 146- 149):

During his tenure, he engineered Notre Dame’s precarious balancing act of synthesizing, at once, its continually emerging Catholic, secular, American, athletic, academic, and Irish identities.

Interviewed in the Black Issues in Higher Education, in 1992, Father Hesburgh acknowledges the existence of racism in the Catholic Church, but he noted that is prevalence mirrored the presence of racism in the United States generally. He also criticized what he termed Afrocentric scholarship, ghetto schools, and Black English. On inner city schools, he said:

"Schools are so bad in the ghetto... I think we need to clean the place out and have a campus like we have here at Notre Dame or at most state universities. Organize the thing just for educating poor kids, but make the schools so good that white kids will want to attend. I’m talking about 500 acres of a park or something. You could create it in Harlem; you could create it in Chicago. In fact, the first thing I would do [after it is built] is put a fence around it. In fact, two fences, 20- feet high with wild dogs running between them."


On black English, he remarked, “Black English is not good English. It may be spoken by a certain class of people, but [they are not] the most successful or educated.”

During the same interview, Hesburgh attempted to address the question of why so few African Americans attend Catholic universities such as Notre Dame:

"I often ask myself why we don’t do better. I think one problem is most blacks are City people. They tend to be in large cities where there is work. For someone from Harlem to come to Notre Dame it would be a culture shock. It’s a different atmosphere. It’s rural. We have everything we need here to live, have fun and learn. For city kids used to jive and Black kids around, that might be a bit strange. It’s a very quality school. The average SAT’s are about 1,250. Another problem would be social adjustment."
 Well, according to Mr. Pinkett, Notre Dame must do everything possible to get "criminals" Black athletes enrolled in the school if the university hopes to remain competitive. Father Hesburgh doesn't seem to believe this will happen. More importantly, the statistics of Black males enrolled at Notre Dame offer a telling glimpse into the academic quality of these "ghetto" dwelling scholars (Brains & Brawn:Black players want 'student' put back in student-athlete, Daily Northwestern, March 3, 2004):
About one in four NU [Northwestern] black males played a varsity sport last year, according to NCAA statistics from fall 2002. The disproportionately high number of athletes within the black male population influences student life.

The NCAA also shows the disproportionately high numbers of black male student-athletes wasn't exclusive to NU. At both Stanford and Duke universities, about one-fifth of black males are athletes. Half of black males at the University of Notre Dame are on an athletic scholarship.
Unless you lower academic standards, and become an academic joke like that of the coal Black SEC (hilariously, all the now 14 SEC schools boast student body populations that are majority white, with the University of Georgia having the paltry Black male student population of under two percent), then Notre Dame will just have to stick to recruiting "choir boys" predominately white players who can meet the academic requirements of the university.

Only after integration of college sports have we had this problem: now, all schools are populated with "criminals" Black players that force each academic institution to regress to the mean in a veritable "Cold War" for the best Black talent, all the while trying to maintain some modicum of academic standards.

Once, even the SEC recruited athletes who would try and live by the standards set by BYU's "Honor Code"; of course, that was a much different world and it was Bear Bryant who helped bring that world down for good, leaving us with the plantations at Oxford, Tuscaloosa, Baton Rouge, Columbia, Auburn, Athens, Gainsville, Miami, Tallahassee, Starkville, and Knoxville that we have now.

Easy button: If everyone else jumps off a bridge, would you? If every other school discards standards for the sake of the black "afawete," would you?

So what that ND won't eviscerate its admissions standards to get the sort of big fast dumb blacks to get the kind of speed on defense you need to win college football championships? ND is a school, not a football program.

Old-line SEC (and Tennessee) fan here. I can tell you that SEC fans in general and Tennessee fans in particular are perfectly fine with the present dispensation. A couple of years ago, I was looking at the UT football section for the Knoxville News Sentinel. A commenter wrote something like:

"You have to recruit thugs to win. A coach has to be able to recruit them and get them to play."

Very often you see comments like: "We don't want any choirboys. That's for the Ivy League, not the SEC."

Several years ago, my brother who used to teach at a school for Knoxville's upper crust, talked to a former student who had walked on at an SEC school. He described the players as "a bunch of thugs. To get along you have to stand your ground with them and don't back down."

The SEC school, by the way, wasn't Tennessee. They wouldn't even have let him walk on.

"I've always felt like to have a successful team you've got to have a few bad citizens on the team," Pinkett. "That's how Ohio State used to win all the time. They would have two or three guys that were criminals and that just adds to the chemistry of the team. I think Notre Dame is growing because maybe they have some guys that are doing something worthy of a suspension which creates edge on the football team.

In days of old, didn't "bad citizens" often find themselves dangling at the end of a rope or left outside the city gates when winter arrived?

This is your typical White moron buying into the thug Black buck "bad boy" image. Pinkett's attitude is emblematic of modern sports' "win at any cost" mentality. What's next, a nod and wink as Pinkett gives his tacit approval for steroids use?

"You can't have a football team full of choirboys," Pinkett continued.

Play by the rules? Perish the fucking thought you corrupt bastard. And everybody wonders whatever happened to good sportsmanship.

"You get your butt kicked if you've got a team full of choirboys so you've got to have a little bit of edge. But the coach has to be the dictator and the ultimate ruler. Here's my opinion: You don't hand out suspensions unless you know you've got somebody behind that guy that can make plays."

So, just like Black retards can rule a classroom because instructors are reluctant to have a lot of disciplinary actions on their teaching record so, too, do these afletes rule the gridiron because coaches don't have anyone to match their thug behavior.

NEWSFLASH: Caving in to these Black goons will only get you a team that is soon to be decimated by arrests for physical violence and other TNB. Essentially, Pinkett is not just encouraging TNB but rewarding it. About all that's missing is this DWL prick bastard wailing over how, "We coulda won that post-season bowl game if those racist cops hadn't arrested Shitavious for date rape after we took the conference title!"

"They're classless. That's the way I'd put it," Moeller said, according to Marcus Hartman from Buckeye Sports Bulletin.

Ask yourself; what's more important, being a decent human being or winning a game played by children? Better yet, ask Joe Paterno and see what sort of answer you get.

"I've never seen more people swing at our players and call us racial slurs. I've never been called a 'cracker' more in my life than I have today. So I don't really have much respect for them in terms of that but they're a good team. They came out and outplayed us today."

Of course, if Moeller had given as good as he got and called some of his opponents "niggers", all hell would have broken loose and Moeller would probably have been benched for the remainder of the season. No hypocrisy there. Nosiree, Bob.

"Ruined my day. Boy, shouldn't have called me a 'cracker'. Bringing me back to owning land and people … what a drag."

Moeller is on the money. These pavement apes are classless and, what's more, they don't even comprehend the yawning void of a life without class. Their innate vacuity prevents it.

As sportswriter Heywood Hale Broun once noted:

Sports do not build character. They reveal it.

What passes for character with Allen Pinkett resembles so much used toilet paper.

This article reminds me of the differences between the UCLA and USC football programs. Up until the year 2000 (when Uncle Pete rode into town) UCLA and USC were on equal footing. Both schools had relatively high academic standards and both schools failed to come anywhere close to winning a National Championship (SC's Rosebowl win in '96 not withstanding). UCLA was a bit better than USC in the 90's but that all changed with Pete Carroll. Carroll completely restructured the program and brought in a "new" type of student athlete. Basically USC became an SEC school on the West Coast. While UCLA kept their academic standards amongst the toughest in DI football, USC decided to go the other way. UCLA's football program completely fell apart in the 2000's (because they would not recruit the thug athlete) while schools like USC and U of Oregon took off because they embraced the thug. UCLA's football program is now a red hot mess but they did retain their integrity. Not only did USC recruit thugs, but they gave the thugs special treatment; culminating in a two year bowl suspension and massive scholarship losses. Of course Pete Carroll had the clairvoyance to get out of LA right BEFORE the NCAA decided to suspend USC's bowl eligibility for two years. Just about everyone involved in D1 college football is a GRADE A Piece of Shit and an embarrassment to humanity.

As a European transplant, the whole college sports scene baffles me.

It is a professional league with millions upon millions of profits.

It is organized into nonsensical conferences and "bowls" which skim most of the profits from schools (the the pro athletes officially get $0 dollars each!).

It allows actual criminals into institutions which have programs dealing with space travel and curing cancer (I used to go to a class with a black guy who played for coach Knight - the guy was later expelled from the program for raping a girl... the guy was a moron, he could barely speak English).

It is nonsense.

A sport which has a 100,000 seater stadium CANNOT be called "amateur".

Here is my plan. We eliminate the fraud that is college football. Hire a team of "boys" that will be held to no academic standards and allow them to play under the banner of the college. This way they could have their criminals and feed them too. Creating a team of semi-professional players will allow all of the DWL who support their local college team to rest easy. It will allow all of the "boosters" to come out of the shadows.

College football is not really about the student athletes. It's also bigger than the business side too. Semi-pro (college football) is about DWLs who want to prostrate themselves at the alter of the SUPER NEGRO. Everyone is in on it too. The blacks know they are only on campus to shuck and jive not study. The administrators are willing to look the other way or cover-up misdeeds in order to keep the farce going and keep the moola rolling in. The other students also know the student-athletes are not students at all. They are the entertainment.

This would end tomorrow if every white man supporting professional and college sports took off the jersey of his favorite buck and said 'no more'. It would end. CHARACTER MATTERS. After watching the NFL draft I have little hope for character in the future of the football. The top picks are a bunch of classless, narcissistic, goons. If this continues you can expect more on-campus rape, bar fights and shootings.

Try telling some black person that you respect scientists, educators, doctors and researchers (as what they do is important and valuable) whereas some guy (insert athletes name here)throwing or bouncing a ball full of air is (by comparison) so unimportant as to not even be in the top 100 on a list of things that ARE important and of value. The outrage is instantaneous. Two hundred years from now, Salk will still be remembered for the Salk vaccine but who's going to give a damn that Cleetus "dun throwed dat ball 50 yards?"
However, a lot of white people react the same way as well as they've become emotionally and psychologically invested in a ridiculous & childish game.
Perhaps such people are lacking in intellligence and common sense. Whatever the case, they certainly have very screwed up priorities as to what is important and what is not.

[From Cal Bear Grad] to Stanford athlete alum anon @ 11:03 PM

Here's a link with direct link instructions

I, too, hover over the college athlete graduation statistic site you posted, check it out every year. Stanford is consistently on top. Congratulations.
After the Big Game [Cal lost] a couple or so years ago, a black Cal football player was being interviewed by a TV sportscaster.
This "student athlete" said of a Stanford player who had tackled him: "I seen him coming at me."
I knew this was the way the kid spoke as a rule, no joke, nor play on words; he didn't know better.
That someone whose English skills were this primitive was taking up space in a prestigious school just because he could play a neanderthal sport outraged me, knowing what it takes to be admitted.

It's still about economics, it always is. Schools do it because it makes money. When white people stop watching (and caring) it will just go away. Here's one guy (me) who discovered he doesn't need this garbage anymore. As I read somewhere (probably on this site), "if your self-esteem depends on what some Negro thug does on a football field, you got problems that are way bigger than you realize.". Amen

jeanne said...

Haha, and the rest of the schools like U Montana and Boise State fight for the leftovers. Black thugs for all!

Why would a white boy even want to play that game anymore?

This way they could have their criminals and feed them too.

Great, then the rest of the community has to put up with their rapes, drug dealing and home invasions.

"There is a way to end this idiocy once and for all. Turn off the TV(just smash it), buy no team merchandise, boycott the sponsors of the games, do not listen to radio broadcasts of games, and buy no tickets to these mockeries of sportsmanship ... Until that happens the closet homosexuals will continue to have their favorite lookie-loo shows go on."
==================================
Anonymous 3:12 PM has this exactly right. Turn it off, don't give them an audience, don't buy the merchandise for yourself or as a gift, don't buy tickets. It is in our power to starve the beast.

I've been yelled at here for beating up on the Repukes and their bogus Great White Hope - Capt. Underoos. I'm accused of offering nothing positive.

Posted directly above is one small step that can be taken by anyone. Stop watching the damned juju-box and its knee-grow idols. It's a massive campaign of lies, lies and more lies.

Here are some other ways to stop feeding the beast:

If you have kids, get them out of public school. They are nothing less than indoctrination centers.

Get out of debt - even a mortgage. Debt is slavery and those who control the whole system of debt-economy are the deadliest enemy. They are the ones who engineered BRA and who are its primary beneficiaries.

Buy a gun or otherwise acquire one and learn to shoot.

It is a fatal error to hold on to the belief that the system is somehow reformable from within. The system has been under the total control of Alinskyites and worse for at least 5 decades. It is a rigged game from top to bottom. Since they have plenty of massively armed orcs in their employ willing to obey any order whatsoever - no matter how lawless - the only viable strategy we have is to think of ways in which the system can be turned against itself. Zenster has referred to this as "reverse-engineering Alinsky". Clog the gears, gum up the system, turn its corruption upon itself - it will collapse eventually and be to pay its orc and goon legions. By that time, we had better be well-prepared with legions of our own.

Stay calm, brother. Although I sometimes wish you would taper off on your "banksta, Repuke, most important erection evaaaaah" rhetoric, ripping the mask from these vulture elite race traitors is one of the most "positive" things that anyone can do.

Yes, it's very uncomfortable for those who remain accustomed to a neatly polarized bipartisan system that long ago joined hands across the political aisle and began singing "Kum—rape White Western civilization and globalize wage slavery to its very lowest financial and genetic common denominator—by-fucking-ah".

Your list of countermeasures is spot-effing-on.

I also appreciate your credit given where it's due regarding my suggestion about "reverse-engineering Alinsky". You are absolutely right about how such a thing must be done in "stealth mode" and you hit the nail head by advocating that we "turn its [The System's™] corruption upon itself".

An essay I am writing deals with weaponizing Islam against itself; just as Muslims do with our Western virtues of humanity, decency, mercy and tolerance. It is long past tea to begin weaponizing MSM and Liberal paradigms against those selfsame entities.

You, Van, 10mm AUTO, Discard, Silent Running, Shelia, Melanie, Celebrate Homogeneity, Kylie, Californian (last but not least) and a host of other SBPDL regulars have it within all of yourselves to forge a new mindset; a new paradigm. Of course, I'd love to assist.

A mindset that actively transmutes accusations of "racism" into a badge of honor. A way of thinking that reveals profiling by law enforcement to be the functional tool that it is. Finding a way back to classrooms of similarly skilled students who are not beset by the incessant ooking and eeking of chronically underachieving cultural enrichers that have been inappropriately transplanted due to ham-fisted Liberal Social Engineering.

Finally, a world in which budding Liberal Social Engineers must first obtain their credentials by volunteering to participate in a 36 month stint of Reverse Section 8 Housing™ whereby they are relocated into melanin-enhanced neighborhoods for the duration.

Otherwise, these elite Social Termites should be allowed to enjoy a Hemp Turtleneck™.

Just because they're armed doesn't mean they can hit anything, or that they will stand their ground and return fire when they come under attack.  If they do not have discipline as troops, they will collapse under attack and suffer defeat in detail from any more disciplined force.

If a troop of orcs comes under fire from a few decent riflemen and perhaps a few using shotguns from cover, you'll quickly have most of their weapons, gear and ammo.  Lather, rinse, repeat.

If I could run fast enough to be worth a damn I'd be practicing tactics on a paintball field.

What is it with grown(?) men wearing hats and jerseys of professional and college sports teams? I got over that when I was about 12.

I remember I was on the same flight with Pete Rose (who was seated in first class). In coach was Mr SportsFan (complete with obligatory football jersey) who wanted Rose's autograph. When Rose told him he didn't want to be disturbed, Mr. SportsFan was all pissed off like an eight year old. When we landed, Rose consented which calmed down Mr. SportsFan.

This is so true. THAT is why their solutions (artificially low interest rates, inflation and taxes) ALWAYS penalize savers.

ND grad here, circa the Hesburgh era.

Talked like a liberal governed like a conservative. Anti { Vietnam} war demonstrators obstructing recruiters were given 15 minutes to reconsider or risk expulsion.

The Administration at ND nowadays lost it for me when Obama received an honorary degree. No more donations from myself and many other Alumni.

BTW Ara Parseghian did pretty well with hugely monochromal teams.
Players of that era had a tradition and background that in most cases predisposed them to ND already.

If playing by the rules means fewer wins so be it. Anyone who cares about their school should feel the same way.

Anon Notre Dame grad at 3:31: Niggers come in all colors, and that includes Whites who are willing to win a game by cheating. Putting non-students on a college football team is cheating, and Whites fans who accept them are trash.

Agree with above sentiments {I, the ND grad}.

Bill Bradley Princeton's greatest basketball player and US Senator had SATS below 500 verbal. This was well below the Princeton standard circa early 1960s.

So is exceptionalism for athletes wrong ?

The true answer is, that most people know stupidity when they see it. With private universities costing around 50k a year,there is good reason to distinguish yourself from an excellent state school at half the cost.

If the consumer sees a distinction without a difference {recruiting low IQ types} they may well opt for State U.
