Whatever you do, do not become a Trojan horse

Janet Albrechtsen describes a meeting at the University of Sydney about a series of academics ganging up on Western Civilisation. Of course depressing, but this did make me smile. It is a quote from someone opposed to the introduction of this course in Western Civ:

“We have a moral obligation not to allow ourselves to become Trojan horses for political agendas of any kind, least of all supremacist ones,” she said. The Ramsay proposal is “part of the worldwide rise of aggressive racial and cultural supremacism”.

Just what kind of horse is a Trojan horse, and what exactly are we being warned not to become? If you don’t study Western Civ, you will never know! Laughably ironic in their ignorance, but a tragedy to find into whose hands the university system has fallen.

    We have a moral obligation not to allow ourselves to become Trojan horses for political agendas of any kind,

    When their shorten looting cartel gives the vote to fifteen year old activists, we will see what they have been taught.

    Branch stacking is his life’s work.

    Comrades.

    How about a referendum question at the next election to wedge shorten?.

    He will do it anyway.

    Plus referendum question on photo ID to vote.

    Comrades.

    Says a talking trojan horse from a neo-Marxist Critical Theory stall of the university supremacist stable.

    I’m also wondering which theories of morality they espouse?

    Why do so many academics exist?
    Only a few qualifications require a university degree.

  9. Up the Workers!

    Is the little man with the big shovel and bucket who follows this “Trojan Horse” around, a Trojan too?

    Or does he come from Werribee?

    Can ivory towers become Trojan horses?

    Sarah Hanson-Young is a Trojan Horse. She’s had a lot of men inside her.

    There is an upside.
    If the history of socialist revolution is any guide.
    The offspring of academicians will have backgrounds too unsound for higher education.

    As I mentioned yesterday the same academics of the University of Sydney seem not to be concerned about the Trojans of the Confucius Institutes. They proudly cite their “partners” Hanban and Fudan, both of whom report directly to China’s Ministry of Education.

    Their rank hypocrisy of complaining about the so-called political agenda of teaching actual conventional history, whilst turning a blind eye to the political agenda of Communist China, is breathtaking.

    What a rude person.

    Their hypocrisy is simply astounding.

    I think it is time that taxpayer funding is withdrawn from any university or college in Australia that #1 does not promote freedom of speech, freedom of ideas, and freedom of association; and #2 fails to promote the benefits of Western Civilization.

    Force those institutions to rely only on donations from elsewhere (Asia and the Middle East) if they want to survive and thrive.

    Can ivory towers become Trojan horses?

    Can virginal purity lead to future destruction? Well, once upon a time there was a pretty Lacedaemonian grrl …

  17. The Left never, ever, seem to comprehend irony.

  18. Justinian the Great

    Love it. The irony is as hilarious as it is depressing!!

    Great pick up!!

    BON – Red China money is good.
    Western money is bad.
    Mao is a god to many.

    Yes, for the mangled metaphor to work it would be the staff who were the Trojan horses, they would be undermining the work of the Ramsay centre from within.

    Easy – theories of moral superiority over plebs who work and produce the goods that they use and the foods that they eat every day and who clean up after them and ………

  22. Gab

    The Left don’t comprehend irony alright. They also don’t comprehend history.

    Oh no not … moral supremacy?!?

    Climate may change but human nature does not.

    Publius Tacitus (or Gaius Cornelius Tacitus; c. 56–after 117 AD), Roman orator, lawyer, and senator. He is considered one of antiquity’s greatest historians.

    Proprium humani ingenii est odisse quem laeseris.
    It belongs to human nature to hate those you have injured.
    Chapter 42; reported in Bartlett’s Familiar Quotations, 10th ed. (1919)

    I find it ironic that Western Civilisation is the target these days. Perhaps the so called intellectuals should do some decent research into some others, lets say China, a long history of bloodshed, wars, slavery, cruelty to the extreme, especially from about 1949 to 1980 and later. How about the middle east, take the spread of Islam, the bloodshed, genocide, child brides, sharia law; their excursions into India are probably some of the most bloodthirsty sagas in human history and there is scant information on them but millions died at the hands of the Muslims. How about Meso-American cultures, human sacrifices especially but not only the Aztecs. Wars were as common anywhere as they were and are in Western civilisation. I think they are just a bunch of lefty/Marxist communists trying to bring us down.

  26. Leftists are smashing the lifeboats on the Titanic, because they don’t need them. The ship is unsinkable.

  27. Bruce

    There is an old Sophie Tucker / Bette Midler line:

    “I don’t know much about Greeks but I know a Helluva lot about Trojans”, or words to that effect.

    Smashing stuff is the stock in trade of the bolshevists and their sociopathic fellow travellers. Systematically gutting institutions and then wrapping themselves in the skin is also standard play.

    And it is all so “romantic” to a seemingly endless army of useful idiots.

    Yep, they just came and Left.

    We appear to live in a world where nutcase activist “she”-persons run the joint….

    Everyone knows SHY prefers wombats, they’re more environmental cause a wombat eats, roots, shoots and leaves…

    Lifeboats would be a privilege.
