Adventures in Illinois Higher Education: Outspoken College Student Experiences Unjust Profiling

“In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.” – George Orwell
When I formally closed the Adventures in Illinois Law series, I had to re-open it because of two mala prohibita violations I received on the government controlled roads. That being said, just yesterday, I formally closed my Adventures in Illinois Higher Education (AIHE) series, but it appears I will have to re-open it prior to the originally projected date, due to new developments.
Before I move forward, let me just reiterate that I knew the risk I was taking in whistleblowing within the higher level indoctrination campuses. I understood that there could be some blowback or negative ramifications for my actions, but for the cause of Liberty and truth, I believe that a few minor struggles are well-worth it in the long run. I just didn’t expect it to happen so quickly.
In last Sunday’s broadcast of Liberty Under Attack Radio, I informed the listeners that Substitute Professor Statist found the website and sent me an email inquiring further. He basically asked why I don’t talk more in class, if I have so much to say. I promptly responded by saying that my interest in his class wasn’t to talk, it’s just to observe, since what can I learn from somebody who prefers hearing himself rant about race, rather than actually teaching his students about politics?
That being said, I wasn’t concerned about that development, as yesterday was the last day I will ever step inside the walls of Heartland Community College. That is, until I woke up this morning to a couple of interesting comments and views on the edition of AIHE that was released yesterday.
Here are the two comments I received:
Those two comments came from:
For those who are unware of the geography of Illinois, Lansing is just over two hours northeast of Normal, which leads me to believe that it could be a student returning home, but of course that is speculation.
Although, things get even more interesting, and the following view on the website could lend some credibility to the commenter:
The view from Illinois State University came just under five hours after the initial comment.
So, what does all of this mean?
Well, first off, let me just say that I don’t get many views from Bloomington/Normal, so it’s not like my AIHE series is causing a drop in the number of applications or anything like that. Additionally, it’s not like I am reporting on things that are “unknown”; all I’m doing is showing readers firsthand what it’s like to be a voluntaryist inside the “progressive” education system, and why the agenda being pushed there will lead “us” all down the road to perdition. I’m also not doxing any of professors, so privacy is not a factor here, given that I have assigned aliases to my professors. To be completely honest, I’m not quite sure what the issue is at all, except for “saving face”, if I had to guess. If anything, I wouldn’t be completely surprised if they were intimidated by the bright transparency the AIHE series shines upon their dark agenda of “thought crime”.
There is still the issue of the comments and what those could imply. That being said, there is always the possibility that he/she could be full of baloney and that it was more of a scare tactic to see if I would back off; or, it could be correct and ISU has already received their “warning” of my arrival. I’m not quite sure what actions the university might take, but they have to do so above board, if at all. Reason being, if they don’t have a viable excuse, it could be unjust profiling or political targeting, which makes for some bad press and could put them in hot water, potentially even legally. The upshot, of course, is that if the worst happened, and I was barred from attending ISU, then any pretense they enjoy of being advocates for “equality” go down the tubes; plus, with two years of my life restored to me, I could get on with the rest of my life.
Although, with this politically correct culture we live in, I really can’t be surprised with the reaction, whether credible or not. With universities now creating “safe spaces” for minorities and the easily offended, I’m wondering where my “safe space” is, or if I am just shit out of luck because I’m a white male who is politically outspoken? Chilling dissent, much?
It’s honestly hard to say what is to come in January, but I’m going to have to be at the top of my game, even more so than before; and with a stroke of luck, ISU might just put Liberty Under Attack on the map here in Bloomington/Normal.
