Leftoids Are Failing Faster

You already know China is expansionist and genocidally racist. You might not know that they’re already targeting their American allies for removal.

Duke Director Of Graduate Studies Steps Down After Asking Chinese Students to Speak English

This is the first time I’ve ever edited the title of an article. Original was “Duke Professor” but that simply doesn’t do credit to the magnitude of this incident.

A professor at Duke University has stepped down from an administrative role after an email in which she asked Chinese students to speak English went viral online.
According to a report from Insider Higher Ed, Duke University Professor Megan Neely has stepped down from her position as the Director of Graduate Studies after an email she sent to Duke graduate students went viral online.

In the email, Neely said that there are “unintended consequences” for students who are speaking Chinese in campus buildings.

“PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE keep these unintended consequences in mind when you choose to speak in Chinese in the building. I have no idea how hard it has been and still is for you to come to the U.S. and have to learn in a non-native language. As such, I have the upmost respect for what you are doing. That being said, I encourage you to commit to using English 100 percent of the time when you are in Hock or any other professional setting.”

Neely isn’t even a battleaxe of a feminist. Pudgy and a New York City haircut is the worst physiognomy can say. I would trust her to bring cookies to a staff meeting but not crack the whip of academic standards. See what happens when the men are chased away? Standards go right out the window.

She encouraged foreign students to commit to using English in campus buildings, allegedly for the purpose of increasing their comfort level with English as their second language. “They were disappointed that these students were not taking the opportunity to improve their English and were being so impolite as to have a conversation that not everyone on the floor could understand,” Neely added in the email.

Recalling my own college days in Commiefornia, foreign students refusing to speak English is unprecedented even in Lefty Land. Why go to a foreign nation, for education no less, to not learn the language? A German exchange student I was close to spoke German in private but never in public.

The Asian Students Associated fired back at Neely for the email, calling it “discriminatory and threatening.”

Discriminatory, sure. Speak English or shut up if you’re going to live in America. But threatening? Neely practically begged on her knees.

“Sending such emails to the entire department with discriminatory and threatening language is in no way an effective and appropriate approach to achieve a quiet public work space that is respectful for everyone,” the group said in a statement. “For graduate and international students who are already in precarious situations, depending on education or employment to stay in the country, these ‘recommendations’ are doubly forceful and coercive.”

So precarious was their position that they openly attacked the Director of Graduate Studies. “Depending on education or employment to stay in the country”? Chinese nationals who insist on speaking Chinese in professional settings complain that their stay here is temporary? They obviously would rather be in China. They need to go back.

But of course, Duke U doesn’t work that way.

The email was sent on Friday. By Monday, Neely had already stepped down from her position. Neely is still employed by Duke and will likely continue on as a professor of biostatistics.

So fast, so brave, one wonders if Neely didn’t like her admin position anyway. Regardless, Chicomms are coming to America to colonize us.

I don’t want America to die like this… the men giving away my home to the women, then the women giving my home away to the first arrogant foreigner to demand it. Every Chinese grad student at Duke needs their visa cancelled yesterday.

  1. Increasingly, the 19th Amendment looks more like a symptom than a cause. Men abdicating the God-given places in the world to wimminz is a bad idea whether or not the laws facilitate the abdication.

  2. I’m a current graduate student in a very, um, “international” University. It’s interesting to me how particular groups of people seem to treat the issue of their native language. By far the most polite are the Farsi speakers, who will speak Farsi with each other on a casual basis but switch to English when others they know walk by, giving people the opportunity to join the conversation.

    On the other hand, the Chinese don’t give a fuck about including other people into their conversations. They roam and study in tightly homogenous packs and few seem to bother learning English at all, seeming to get by exclusively on their own language(s).

    I can see how this Duke admin’s email didn’t go over so well – anybody in graduate school at an R1 university will tell you how patently absurd it is to expect co-nationals and co-ethnics not to converse in their native language, especially when there’s a sizable population around. Hell, even the German professors in my Dept., who I’m sure all grew up speaking English as well as German, speak in German around the water cooler. I think it’s just a natural human compulsion.

    All of this, of course, would probably be different if it weren’t for the sheer number of international students, especially graduate students. They outnumber domestic students in a lot of places, including where I go to school. They’re also in it for the long-haul, as Americans have a lot of employment options and tend to graduate sooner to enter the workforce (at least in the hard sciences) whereas a higher proportion of international students finish their PhDs.

    Sorry for the long comment – it’s just that I’m outside the demographic of this particular sphere’s usual readers and felt that I could provide a pretty unique insight on this particular issue.

  3. Thank you, Ross! And welcome. I’ve been out of college for two decades now so your insight is valuable context. Also, the closest big name to me is UC Santa Cruz and they’re no benchmark of normality.

  4. Duke lost all respect from me with the LaCrosse debacle, and they didn’t even learn from that; it only got worse. It’s a leftist bastion in a vibrant city in a leftist state. An Ivy League professor and former facebook friend of mine who did her doctorate at Duke (in English Lit, of course) was on about some building on campus named for some ancient slaveholder or something. I suggested they rename it Mangum Hall to make up for it. That’s when she became a “former facebook friend”.

  5. Well the cause started with the fall…and we still have to deal with those consequences.

    Making it the law of the land is doubly dumb.

  6. This is another example of how there are only consequences for legacy Americans, and none for new “Americans” and their allies. Of course, the Chinese will remain loyal to CHina and not to the agenda of our globohomo elite, so the foreigners we’re importing are on a collision course with our elite, happily. Asians are also suing Harvard for discriminating in favor of (((legacy))) admissions instead of merit. We know how many of our elite attend Harvard, Yale, and Princeton.

    Yeah, the Persians fit into our culture the best. Also, they’re Shi’a who’ve never attacked us. This must be why our elites want to bomb them.

    Identity group B blames identity group A for imposing favoritism over merit when group B ultimately doesn’t intend to rely on merit, either. No wonder we need an Internet to keep score on current events.
