Colleges, universities that deny students’ First Amendment rights will no longer receive federal grant money:
A final rule was just announced by Education Secretary Betsy DeVos that, effective immediately, prohibits colleges and universities that trample on students’ First Amendment rights from receiving federal grant money.
Known as “Improving Free Inquiry, Transparency, and Accountability at Colleges and Universities,” the rule aims to protect the free speech rights of marginalized students, including those who are religious or conservative, which continue to be under attack by rabid far-leftists who only want their points of view to prevail.
“Students should not be forced to choose between their faith and their education, and an institution controlled by a religious organization should not have to sacrifice its religious beliefs to participate in Department grants and programs,” DeVos indicated in a statement.
“These regulations hold public institutions accountable for protecting the First Amendment rights of students and student organizations, and they require private colleges and universities that promise their students and faculty free expression, free inquiry, and diversity of thought to live up to those ideals…”

“The only thing viler than tyrants are their lackeys.”
“I have no faith in human perfectibility. I think that human exertion will have no appreciable effect upon humanity. Man is now only more active – not more happy – nor more wise, than he was 6000 years ago.” ―
If you have never read Orwell’s 1984, then you really should, and especially now, with this “new-normal” dystopian-future staring us straight in the face.
In Orwell’s 1984, the people have grown to embrace their dystopian existence as two-legged cattle, and so most are more than willing to snitch on each other, when the slightest Big Brother rule is broken or even questioned. Even the children will gladly turn their parents in for not kowtowing to and obeying the mind and soul destroying laws that Big Brother has despotically created and cruelly enforces. In Orwell’s 1984, children, like their parents, have been programmed, from birth, to love Big Brother more than their parents or themselves.
1984 is an example of the herd-mentality, which must thrive in order for a totalitarian state to survive: the totalitarian-state is totally dependent on the complete destruction of the individual, and the maintaining of the mindless and faithfully-obedient herd.
And it appears, today, that we the individuals are precariously-teetering on the precipice of such a dystopian nightmare. It also appears that the x, y, z and millennial generations have already bought into and embraced this particular form of totalitarianism: CV-19, The Great Reset, Agenda ID 2020, Agenda 2030, One World Order, BLM and ANTIFA.
My only peace comes from the secure knowledge that I’m old and not well, physically, and so my days on this planet-sized insane-asylum are numbered:
Report: Covid “Whistleblowers” Are Making Money From Tattling On Those Who Break Rules
A Reuters report that describes as “whistleblowers” students reporting on their classmates for breaking COIVD rules, also highlights that the authorities are paying them to walk around campuses and “enforce” social distancing measures and mask mandates.
“As some U.S. college students party, others blow the whistle,” the report states, noting that some are even making ‘undercover videos’ of their fellow student disobeying the rules and and handing the footage over to school authorities.
“At the University of Missouri, one senior is posting photos and videos on a “University of Misery” Twitter account that shows students gathered in large groups at pools, outside bars and other places – few of them wearing masks,” the report further states.
“The university has a form on its website where violations of the school’s COVID-19 guidelines can be anonymously reported, but posting on Twitter “adds a different level of accountability,”” the
The University has expelled or suspended several students stemming from the tattling, according to the article.
The Reuters report continues:
Some schools like the University of Miami are actually paying students to enforce COVID-19 rules.
At Miami, 75 “public health ambassadors” are making $10 an hour to walk around campus and make sure that people wear masks and socially distance. Serious infractions can be flagged to university administrators.
Austin Pert, an ambassador and Miami senior, said that people generally comply with his requests. But Pert acknowledged the program has limitations: most violations do not take place during the day on university grounds.
Some students are fully onboard with the snitching, seeing it as an opportunity to get ahead of other students:
Ed Kellermann, a BU senior, said he would not hesitate to anonymously report a party, calling it a matter of “life or death” for Boston residents near campus.
Kellermann said reporting parties also increases the odds of completing the academic year on campus.
“We’re all very pro-snitch right now,” Kellermann said. “No one wants to get sent home.”
As we have documented at Summit News, several universities in the US have set up systems so students can report on each other if they see anyone breaking the Covid ‘rules’.
