Pigs fly! The University of South Carolina is closing its Women & Gender Studies department and replacing it with a program to teach the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Federalist Papers.

It appears university administrators have decided that they don’t have the option to ignore a state law that requires them to teach these fundamental American documents, as they tried to do earlier What is especially interesting is their decision on what to shutter to pay for the new courses. I suspect they had enough of porno on campus.

    This gives me a warm happy feeling.

    This is wonderful news. In talking with young people today, they have no idea about the founding documents of the country or what they mean.

    When I attended College, after two tours in combat, I told the toads that ran the admissions that under no circumstances would I allow the VA to pay for frivolous and useless courses, like “Gender Studies” or the Gawdawful “Sensitivity” courses. They had a choice, take the money or not. They took the money and never mentioned this crap again. It was particularly galling to have the pukes tell me of “Sensitivity” and at the same time be told that they did not like Vets and did not really want any on campus….

    I expect the following press release:

    “Women and minorities will be hardest hit by this unprecedented closure of the Gender Studies department.We urge the White patriarchy to reconsider this enroachment on Women’s rights.”

    I’m taking bets.

    This is good news. However, what exactly will they teach about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Federalist Papers? Will they teach how they are keys to our freedom and prosperity for all Americans? Or will teach that they are instruments of oppression used by evil white men against women, children, minorities and however many genders we have this week.

    No matter how they teach it at least they have to quire them to read the documents eventually.
    Something no student needs to do now.
