Major Donor Makes It Explicit to UPenn: If Magill Stays, You Lose My $100 Million. If You Fire Her, I Send You the $100 Million.

Dead Dean Walking.

It's not just the $100 million revoked donation. The Wharton School of Business, part of U Penn and one of the greatest business schools in the world, is surely one of their biggest magnets for donor money.

And their Board of Advisors wants Magill out, says UPenn's paper, the Daily Pennsylvanian.

The Wharton Board of Advisors is calling on the University to change leadership with "immediate effect," according to a letter to Penn President Liz Magill first obtained by The Daily Pennsylvanian.

The letter describes the Board's concern about "dangerous and toxic culture" at Penn that they said the University leadership has allowed to exist. The letter adds that the University leadership "does not share the values of our Board."...

"In light of your testimony yesterday before Congress, we demand the University clarify its position regarding any call for harm to any group of people immediately, change any policies that allow such conduct with immediate effect, and discipline all offenders expeditiously," the letter said.

The last part suggests a way for Magill to keep her job -- if she disciplines all offenders. But I don't think she wants to do that.

In the sidebar, I mentioned that Ross Stevens had withdrawn a $100 million donation. He said that the university had violated an anti-discrimination clause in their contract.

He adds that he'll give UPenn the $100 million... as soon as McGill is fired.

Mr. Stevens and Stone Ridge would welcome the opportunity to discuss this matter further and give the University a chance to remedy what Stone Ridge believes are likely violations of the LP Agreement if, and when, there is a new University President in place. Until then, there can be no meaningful discussion about remedying the University's ongoing failure to honor is obligations.

Many of you may, like me, be of two minds on this issue.

On one hand: Your rules. These are your rules. We're going to make you choke on them until you spit them out and admit they're poison.

But it does feel wrong to be demanding that universities crack down on offensive speech.

Still, they already have been outlawing virtually all "offensive" speech. What they're doing here is selectively allowing some favored hate speech.

Glenn Reynolds puts it perfectly:

[A]s much as I enjoy seeing these people stew in the juices of their hypocrisy -- and believe me, enjoy it I do -- it is nonetheless true, as Eugene Volokh cogently points out, that free speech principles, and the First Amendment where it applies, prevent things like a selective ban on anti-semitism, or on "advocacy of genocide" or whatever.

But think how much easier the life of these administrators would be if they and their institutions had just had some principles. If they had a record of allowing student and faculty speech on everything without punishment, they could point to that record and say, sure, some of our students are saying monstrous things, but we believe in free speech and that the best way to deal with monstrous ideas is by discussing, and refuting, them in the open.

Of course, they can't say that, because it isn't true -- and, more importantly, it obviously isn't true. Top universities have for years been denying the value of free speech, and even suggesting it is some sort of questionable relic of white supremacy, or Christian Nationalism, or something. They've been centers for the belief that the way to deal with ideas you don't like isn't to refute them, but to ruthlessly suppress them.

Well, when that's your stance -- and we all know that it largely has been theirs -- suddenly appearing before Congress and parsing free speech doctrine to a nicety isn't very convincing. When you censor any speech, you make yourself responsible for whatever you allow.

Emphasis added.

Yes, that's it, that's it! That's been tip of my tongue for days now!

If you have a flat policy of allowing all speech, you do not necessarily endorse any kind of speech -- it's simply your policy to allow all kinds of speech. Your endorsement is not implied.

But if your policy is to routinely censor speech, and only selectively allow speech, then you definitely are endorsing the speech you permit, because you've shown what you do with speech you don't endorse: you censor it, you forbid it. Therefore, in a regime or routine censorship, any permitted speech is officially endorsed speech.

The below video from FP.com makes a similar point, for you Visual Learners. Their argument is just contrasting the two wildly different standards employed by these formerly "elite" universities:

For all browner-skinned students, and for gays and especially trans students, the policy is "safety first:" any claim of "harm" from speech is presumed to not only be true but to be absolutely controlling. If someone says they're harmed by speech, that speech must be shut down.

But for Jews -- and, of course, for all non-minority men and straights -- the policy is "anything goes."

This cannot be sustained. You cannot claim "the Constitution" demands this.

The Constitution has nothing to do with this Different Rights For Different People regime.


By the way, Magill was asked why Joe Biden was paid almost a million dollars for a no-show "job" at UPenn -- a million dollars for two years a couple of months' non-work -- and why suddenly millions of dollars in anonymous donations from China began flowing in after Biden was hired to do nothing.

She said he had a "wide range" of duties, which she failed to specify.

Those duties did not include teaching classes or actually doing anything. She does mention that he "attended" some meetings.


There's so much corruption here. The "elites" are just absolutely rotten.

The whole rotten upper structure needs to be torn out and rebuilt with fresh untainted wood.

The university will be less willing to blanket allow similar behavior, but it also means that other big dollar donors will be using their potential donations to get policy changes for all sorts of things.

41 That Senate hearing with the Penn, MIT, and Harvard Presidents was remarkable to me because they were all clearly prepped together. All three were saying exactly the same things, and they were PROUD. The Penn scrunt McGill was clearly enjoying herself as she repeated her prepared answers. And nobody on their prep team took a step back and said, "Will we suffer any blowback for this?"

They're all so comfortable in their doctrinaire leftism they saw absolutely no downside to their answers.

42 I'm enthused about this to the extent that I'm always a fan of leftist scalps being collected, particularly by other leftists. But it's not really cause for optimism. None of the long-existing, well-documented toxicity of universities prompted big donors to take action. This is just another episode of tribal warfare. None of this outrage will be extended to similar treatment of straight white men generally, or conservatives of any stripe. So, like the Iran-Iraq war, I'm more or less just cheering casualties.

The real front in the battle for colleges, though, should be happening in state legislatures to pull funding for schools who do this stuff. The elites can have their little oases of crazy. It's the lower colleges where the fight that really matters is.

Posted by: TheJamesMadison, celebrating anarchy and 50s B-movies with Joe Dante at December 08, 2023 04:01 PM (GBKbO)

61 The fundamental issue with higher education isn't "free speech" or "cancel culture" but that progressives have systematically captured these institutions by gradually and increasingly discriminating against conservatives (and, eventually, moderates) in favor of themselves. Most colleges and universities are now nearly monolithically progressive in their faculties and bureaucracies, and this is reflected in the causes and groups they choose to support, which currently includes favoring the genocide of Israeli Jews by Hamas nazis. They're perfectly happy to claim to be supporting "free speech" and opposing "cancel culture" in regard to the nazi collaborators on their campuses, but of course they would immediately turn on a dime and continue to suppress any dissenting opinions from conservatives.

70 "If you have a flat policy of allowing all speech, you do not necessarily endorse any kind of speech -- it's simply your policy to allow all kinds of speech. Your endorsement is not implied.

But if your policy is to routinely censor speech, and only selectively allow speech, then you definitely are endorsing the speech you permit, because you've shown what you do with speech you don't endorse: you censor it, you forbid it."

That's well put.

76 State governments controlled by conservatives should have taken action decades ago to ensure true academic freedom in their public university systems by prohibiting discrimination against conservatives in faculty promotions, faculty hiring, graduate student retention, and graduate student admission decisions (also undergraduate admission decisions, which were the last to be greatly affected).

At the federal level, investigations can be undertaken into discrimination by universities, public or private, against conservatives, Jews, Christians, whites, Asians, etc. Massive amounts of federal funds are sent to universities, directly or indirectly, and cutting them off to the worst offenders would send an excellent message, possibly resulting in a real amelioration, though it wouldn't affect the underlying problem of the personnel at these institutions.

82 By the way, Magill was asked why Joe Biden was paid almost a million dollars for a no-show "job" at UPenn -- a million dollars for two years a couple of months' non-work -- and why suddenly millions of dollars in anonymous donations from China began flowing in after Biden was hired to do nothing.

She said he had a "wide range" of duties, which she failed to specify.

Those duties did not include teaching classes or actually doing anything. She does mention that he "attended" some meetings.

93 Of course they need a lot more than just principled free speech. They need to stop favoring anti-white and anti-Jewish communists and bigots in their admissions and hiring and instead actually need to strongly dis-favor this moral trash of the universe.

That is something universities themselves cannot do because at this point almost all of them are completely captured by the communist race bigots. The only possibility of reform is for state schools in red states, where governors and legislatures have the possibility of flushing out the Augean stables from the top, if they can ever get their acts together.

But Harvard with its mega-billions endowment? They don't need any more donations. They are going to be an anti-American s#!thole forever.

She must resign to even approach a satisfactory response given how putrid her leadership has been given the evidence paraded by the student body (and the bureaucracy who prosecuted any conservatives in their midst).

Jews often were lending money back in the day when Christians didn't feel right about charging interest. So their interactions with most people were pretty negative.

Kings also found it handy because they could get "loans" and then kick them out of the country for a while in lieu of paying them back.

They also were big in trade when trade had collapsed in Medieval times and this again were on the other side of expensive transactions for high priced items.

Often that was met with equal hate for anyone else who wasn't a Christian including Atheists they burnt at the stake. The Gospels directly contradict antisemitism and there are a few instances where people corrupted them in ignorance for that purpose. Conversely, it has been a staple of Islam and still is.

There is a lot you can do against Leviathan without even sticking your neck out. Some thoughts in no particular order:

2. Do only what the government directly compels you to do. Do not voluntarily cooperate Do not volunteer information.
3. Pay in cash with a winkwink
4. Cheat the government whenever possible
5. Steal all your entertainment
6. If you know of tax cheating, keep your mouth shut
7. If called to jury, refuse to convict if you think the law unjust Remember that if the FBI is testifying, it's most likely a frame-up.

8. Discriminate in all your private dealings, without openly saying so. Never miss an opportunity to quietly do a Commie dirty.
9. If you see a CoC sticker on a business, go elsewhere
10. Vote against all tax levies, particularly school levies
11. Always ask your contractors if they use Latin American labor. If they say yes say sorry, if they say no, check out the workers yourself and if Latin, send them away.
12. Buy firearms and ammo. It's not simply a just-in-case, it's a good financial investment of small sums when savings are yielding poor returns.

284 Interesting. First of all, Joe's daughter & all three of Hunter's oldest, all now grown women, went to Sidwell Friends School (as did O's daughters) and then went to Penn.

Penn may be caught between a rock and a hard place because:

Quaker Consortium

Undergraduate students within The Wharton School, College of Arts and Sciences, and School of Engineering and Applied Science may enroll in undergraduate-level courses at Bryn Mawr, Haverford, or Swarthmore College during the fall and spring terms of the academic year. These three schools along with University of Pennsylvania constitute the Quaker Consortium and have a reciprocal agreement for course credit and tuition. This means that grades will appear on the student’s Penn transcript, and no additional tuition will be charged.

Summer sessions are not subject to the Quaker Consortium agreement and are treated as credit away.

Students from Bryn Mawr, Haverford, or Swarthmore College wishing to enroll in Penn undergraduate-level courses in the fall or spring term should do so through the Registrar's Office at their home institution. For more information, review the Quaker Consortium Student Guide.

Actual violence was not allowed, and 2 kids have gotten in trouble for that (and getting them in trouble immediately shut down that ever from happening again).

297 If you have a flat policy of allowing all speech, you do not necessarily endorse any kind of speech -- it's simply your policy to allow all kinds of speech. Your endorsement is not implied.

But if your policy is to routinely censor speech, and only selectively allow speech, then you definitely are endorsing the speech you permit, because you've shown what you do with speech you don't endorse: you censor it, you forbid it. Therefore, in a regime or routine censorship, any permitted speech is officially endorsed speech.

301 Its sounds like you're endorsing anti semetism because it's "real" Christianity and not weak sauce. I hope that I read that wrong, because if I didn't it's reprehsible.

No, I'm not. What I am saying is that Christians and Jews had a very fractious relationship from the jump and that persisted for many, many centuries. But now that a great deal of Christianity has become diluted over the past couple of centuries (there are whole churches who reject the idea that Jesus died for much of anything, let alone to redeem mankind from sin), there's less reason for animus and there is less animus. If large numbers of supposed Christians don't really think Jesus was the Christ, then there's no reason for them to get exercised over the Jews having rejected Jesus.

And, quite apart from that, even more serious modern Christians are simply in denial about how the "Let his blood be upon us" language was traditionally interpreted. If modern Christians reject that interpretation, fine and well, but it's a largely revisionist take, because Christianity was in fact quite hostile to Jews for a very long time. And you can see that as recently, for example, as Martin Luther.

Posted by: Disinformation Expert Ace at 03:45 PM

This situation with our elite colleges is reminiscent of what happened to the Pre-Reformation Church when its corruption was known, but nothing could be done about it. The first thing that happened was you had the first monasteries crop up. These places cloistered themselves from the corruption of the greater church. The parallel would be in the recent rise of the homeschool movement.

It's taken about 400 years for Harvard et al to get to this point. With the rise of MOOCs and other viable online alternatives to college, and the rise of major corps not requiring bachelor's degrees, it's only a matter of time that Luther's equivalent in the education sphere rises to create a real exodus from the Ivies - with viable career alternatives away from their influence as well. I wouldn't be surprised if Jewish and Asian parents begin to openly advocate for such an institution.

Also no reason for Jews to get exercised about those particular "Christians" following a rabbi insane and heretical enough to call himself "The Son of God". Since, obviously, they aren't.

That does neatly explain why Jews assume that conservative Christians hate them, and hate the conservative Christians in return, even though the Conservative Christians don't hate them at all.

The fundamental tenets haven't changed since the time of our Lord, and therefore being called "Christian" or professing the faith doesn't change that. As I've said many times, you can call yourself whatever you want, but if you do not follow the doctrine you are not a Christian.

354 By the way, Liz Megill succeeded Amy Gutman, who became Joe Biden's ambassador to Germany. As part of Gutman's Senate confirmation process she disclosed that Penn paid her $23 million in her final year as President.

$23 million dollars. For a university fundraiser in chief. Disgusting.

This is one of those things that needs to be changed. Jury salary should be whatever the average salary in the state is. Hell, they aren't even meeting minimum salary they demand by law out of the private sector.

Asimov had it as plot points in several stories of his. so it must have been nattered about in literary circles in the East Coast in the 50s.


Some people remember Asimov had a turn with #metoo...apparently he was rather handsy with female fans...but he was also identified as a possible Soviet spy.

Montec this is actually the trend I'm seeing (with three kids now in college) - by the time my youngest was looking he wouldn't consider ANY private colleges, only public (state) colleges. And all his friends (guys at a boys-only prep school) were the same. they went for nice scholarships to state flagships and everybody is pretty happy.

I write about national politics for Forbes, with a focus on Trump.

In part, University of Pennsylvania alumni are pressuring the school to strip Trump of his bachelor's degree, which the president earned in 1968, by threatening to withhold donations, though it’s much more difficult for a college to revoke an earned degree.

Posted by: CrotchetyOldJarhead at December 08, 2023 05:00 PM (YRsIm)

390 Look, I'm not even trying to be controversial here. You realize that the Catholic Church, for example, did not formally repudiate the traditional collective-Jewish-guilt interpretation of "Let his blood be upon us" until the Second Vatican Council in the 1960s, right? It addressed the issue because it lingered even then. The idea that Christianity hasn't traditionally/historically had an anti-Jewish slant is just rank nonsense. You don't have to be anti-Christian or anything else to recognize that Christianity's view of the Jews has evolved greatly, especially in modern times.

398 >>> Also, ace, if you are screaming "kill the Jews" in front of a Jewish student's face or chasing a group of them to seek a safe place, isn't that assault?

yes in that case. that's what the three presidents are saying would be the "context" that would make it against the rules. they're saying that if you call for intifada NOT in the face of a particular person, not intending any particular person to be afraid, it's okay.

which would be an okay standard... but they won't let Riley Gaines go on campus to say that women shouldn't have to compete against men in swimming because that's too 'threatening" and "harmful" for transgenders to hear.
