#1 Chapter 639: Conclusion - Mike Adams calls it quits. >=^(05-13-2010, 12:18 AM
As you are surfing the Internet this morning, I am in a car driving west somewhere between the Appalachian and Rocky Mountains. The particular column you are reading right now is the 639th I have written since I became a columnist for Townhall in September of 2003. It will also be my last.
My first column for Townhall was called “NAMBLA: Coming to a Campus Near You.” In that column, I argued that the diversity movement had gained such momentum – ironically, from not being subjected to competing ideas – that it would not be long before pedophilia was accepted and actively promoted on our nation’s campuses – all in the name of “tolerance” and “diversity.” That time has now arrived.
My most recent column included a revealing email exchange with a university administrator. Careless readers of that column considered it to be somewhat mundane and unenlightening – perhaps even petty. The more careful readers noticed that, in one of the administrator’s emails, she included a quote by James Baldwin, which said “If you fall in love with a boy, you fall in love with a boy. The fact that many Americans consider it a disease says more about them than it does about homosexuality.”
Of course, when Baldwin made that statement he was not a “boy.” He was a grown man suggesting that pedophilia is not a disease but, instead, that opposition to pedophilia is a disease. I disagree. That’s why I’m a follower of Jesus, rather than a follower of Baldwin or Muhammad.
Several readers who picked up on that quotation asked a rather pointed question: “Is your university so caught up in moral relativism that it has lost its capacity to condemn pedophilia?” The answer: “You don’t know the half of it.”
Regular readers of my column recall an incident last year when the Faculty Senate passed a resolution to support the First Amendment rights of a feminist who wished to place nude pictures of little girls (pre and post-pubescent) in the lobby of the university library.
Regular readers of my column also recall an incident at another UNC campus involving a 34-year old man who was convicted of possessing child porn – including pictures of eight-year-olds being raped and sodomized. After admitting to the felony child porn convictions – right on his application, mind you - he was still admitted to UNC-Greensboro. They even hired him to work in the Office of Student Life where he worked to get a porn star hired to speak about “safe sodomy.” The day after she spoke the College Republicans were denied funding for my speech. I was deemed “too offensive” even though I wasn’t talking about sodomy.
But the story I’m breaking today takes the cake. During my First Amendment lawsuit against UNC-Wilmington, my attorneys discovered a series of emails, which began with an accusation of “transphobia” leveled against me by a group called the Gender Mutiny Collective. This was in response to two columns I wrote - “Diversity and Perversity at my Little University” and “The Old Rugged Cross-Dresser.”
For those who don’t already know, the Gender Mutiny Collective is a group of transgendered anarchists. They support violence as a means of eradicating the oppression of transgendered people. One of their recruiting manuals quotes their president as saying “I don’t trust a boy unless he knows how to suck a good (rhymes with “clock.”).
When the Gender Mutiny Collective demanded an investigation of me – to determine whether I was transmitting “transphobia” in the classroom - the university had two options. They could: a) support the First Amendment rights of their faculty member, or b) support the rights of transgendered anarchist pedophiles to be perpetually un-offended.
So the university sided with the transgendered anarchist pedophiles and conducted an investigation. The investigation found no evidence of the transmission of “transphobia” in my classroom – nor did any consensus emerge as to what exactly constitutes “transphobia.”
CONTINUEDStand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

I'm betting that's he relocating to a more normal academic setting (if that's possible) and filing his columns with somebody else. He should come out here. If Ward Churchill has free speech, Adams should get some too. ;)

He is radically misinterpreting James Baldwin's statement. Of course, Baldwin wasn't a boy when he said it. He was using the term boy to refer to young love, like grown hetero man would refer to his first love as a girl.

I'm not sure what he's referring to here, but if it's the "Century Project" he's way off base. However, it looks like that wouldn't be a first, for him. I have no idea who he is, but hope he enjoys his new ventures.
