Nazis In Knoxville Expose Ignorance And Immaturity of Students
On February 17, 2018, The Traditionalist Workers Party held a recruiting session at the University of Tennessee Knoxville and inadvertently exposed the colossal ignorance of the students on the campus. The University administration has had its collective knickers in a twist about the Neo-Nazi, nationalist socialist group for weeks, especially the increasingly hysterical Chancellor Beverly Davenport.
Here is a quick background for those unfamiliar with the place that Vols for Life consider to be holy (not just the football stadium). The University of Tennessee Knoxville is located (mostly) in downtown Knoxville, Tennessee on the banks of the Tennessee River. From the University website:
Founded in 1794, UT is big on tradition, and we are proud of our humble beginnings as the first public university chartered west of the Appalachian Divide.
We serve the state by educating its citizens, enhancing its culture, and making a difference in people’s lives through research and service.
Let those on the coasts make fun of Tennessee but “Rocky Top” produced some amazing people. My late father-in-law was a 1944 Chemistry graduate who rose to Production Manager for the Y-12 Nuclear facility. My husband graduated in 1974 and 1975 from the business school with undergraduate and graduate degrees and worked in business consulting with the best in the world. Retired Lt. Col. and former Florida Representative Allen West is a 1983 graduate. And, let’s not forget athletes Peyton Manning, Chamique Holdsclaw, and Tyler Bray, writer Cormac McCarthy and financial guru Rachel Cruze. These people are all beautiful examples of The Torchbearer, the symbol of education at the University of Tennessee Knoxville.
Since 1968, the Torchbearer—UT’s official symbol—has borne silent witness to the university’s Volunteer Creed: “One that beareth a torch shadoweth oneself to give light to others.”
Yesterday’s Nazi recruiting session and the protesters who showed up bore loud and blaring witness to the Olympic ignorance that pervades the University of Tennessee, and I suspect, many other former places of higher education. These poor little cherubs don’t understand the First Amendment, in any part, or the importance of law enforcement in a free society. Watch this package:
I don’t know anything about Lexie King, but she is an excellent example of the type student that the University of Tennessee should be recruiting. Miss King is so right. The words Nazi, white supremacist, fascist and hate speech are all thrown around so much that the students wrongly think that anyone who disagrees with current beliefs and ideas must be shouted down. These students believe that law enforcement personnel are bad people looking to shutdown their rights. They don’t know that the law enforcement personnel in riot gear are there to protect their rights and their person.
Miss King is wrong about Chancellor Beverly Davenport. Davenport whipped up this frenzy her own self. When the Nazi meat sacks started writing on The Rock, Davenport started issuing PC Diversity approved statements, from the Knoxville News Sentinel:
In the last month, the Rock, a boulder that serves as a campus message board, has been painted several times with messages from a racial separatist group.
“I know many of you have been offended by their presence on our campus and what they have written on our Rock,” Davenport said in a message posted on her webpage Friday and shared with the campus community. “Please know I share your sentiments entirely. I find their values and teachings despicable, hateful, divisive, and incendiary, and as I have said before, they are completely at odds with our Volunteer values and ethics.”
“I encourage all of you to be guardians of our campus,” she said. “Protect it and make it a symbol of what you honor and love. Take care of it and each other. Be mindful of what’s hurtful and hateful. If you see something hateful or hurtful on the Rock, say something and/or enlist the help of others to paint over it.”
Last week, Davenport, an alleged educator, kicked off a whole week of protesting the Traditionalist Worker Party morons with “The United at the Rock against Racism”. If only the Traditionalist Worker Party idiots were only racists. They are hatefilled subhumans. They hate everybody for everything, unless you are lily white and of Western European background.
Chancellor Davenport whipped these poor little students into a frenzy. She did them no favors at all. An educator would not have encouraged what happened this weekend and this past month at the University of Tennessee.
Living in a free society under our particular Constitution means that frequently you will run into who hate you for who you are and what you believe. Since we do not live in a fascist country, you are free to believe all kinds of things that may be out of the mainstream. The First Amendment to The Constitution gives even those who are anathema to all we hold dear a right to freely assemble. Check it out:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.
No ifs, ands, or buts there. The Nazis have a right to assemble. Beverly Davenport missed a really important educational opportunity to reach and teach these poor little cherubs. Unless Beverly wants a fascist society, which would explain her increasing hysteria.
If I were Chancellor of the University of Tennessee (fat chance since I am not an “educator”), I would have issued the following statement:
“Some Nazi morons are trying to stir up stuff on our campus. Ignore them. We, here on Rocky Top, practice what The Torchbearer teaches. We love each other, on our way to class. We help each other study for class. We respect each others right to get to class. We will reach and teach others by doing well in our classes. Now, be a VFL (Vol for Life) and get your asses to classes. There will be a seminar on line on the four parts of the First Amendment, please watch at your convenience.”
I am not an educator. Sadly, it appears there are no educators on the campus of the University of Tennessee Knoxville and that ought to scare the bodily juices out of everyone nationwide.
