UPDATE: Is UALR Liberally Educating Students With Derogatory Sexual Term Lectures On The Taxpayer Dollar?

This morning I received a portion of a forwarded email from a University of Arkansas Little Rock alumni that I just had to validate to be sure there was no mistake:

Subject: UALR hosting seminar by tenured professor labeling conservatives as “teabaggers”

Interesting email, I received this from one of our members and it is a reminder of the liberal’s teaching our children in our state schools.

Subject: UALR hosting seminar by tenured professor labeling conservatives as “teabaggers”

————
I am an alumnus of the University of Arkansas-Little Rock,  and was disturbed to discover that the school is hosting a lecture by  one of its own professors to label you a “teabagger” (that is the actual  term used by the school on its website).  I am forwarding the site  address to you along with the text from the school’s official website so  that you may verify the information for yourself.  Please bear in mind  that this is a public university funded at taxpayer expense.

Copied directly from the University of Arkansas-Little Rock’s official webpage, link above:

UALR History Professor Johanna Miller Lewis will present a lecture at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 1, exploring the events of the Boston Tea Party and the current Tea Party movement.
The lecture, at the Ottenheimer Auditorium in the Historic Arkansas Museum at 200 E. Third St., is part of UALR’s History Institute’s series, “Evenings with History.”
The event begins at 7 p.m. with refreshments, followed by Lewis’s lecture, “Teabaggers and the American Revolution.”
From television personality Glenn Beck to Representative Michelle Bachmann and former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, the conservative right has embraced the Boston Tea Party as a symbol of rebellion against taxation and government  intervention that led directly to the American Revolution. However, a close reading of the events leading up to the American Revolution suggests otherwise. This lecture will examine the numerous interpretations of the tax revolts and struggle for political power that really led the colonies to rebel against Great Britain.
The Evenings with History series is sponsored by the University History Institute, which is a nonprofit organization of private citizens interested in history and supporting UALR.
An individual can subscribe to the series for $50 annually, which includes admission to all six lectures. A joint subscription to the series, at $90 annually, offers savings of $10 to couples and friends. At $250 annually, a Fellow of the Institute receives the previous benefits, plus an invitation to special presentations for fellows exclusively, including private events with noted authors. The Institute also offers a life membership at $1,000 that can be paid in installments.
Subscriptions and donations to the Institute are tax deductible as allowed by law. Subscribers to the series help support historical research. Presenters donate their time, and the University History Institute uses all proceeds from the series to encourage research at UALR.
In recent years, annual institute grants, made possible by the Evenings with History series, have made major purchases of historical research materials for UALR.
For more information, contact the UALR Department of History at 501-569-3235.

The highlighted derogatory sexual term paired with Patriotism:

No… clearly there was no mistake. It is clearly posted on UALR’s website. There is a Liberal spin with a blatant agenda provided for by taxpayer dollars. Is this how taxpayer dollars should be wasted? Is this how your taxpayer dollars should be used?

@bobbi85710 We sincerely apologize for any offense caused by the term. It was certainly unintended and has been corrected on our website.

Looks like UALR has a conscience and I commend the correction and screen captured here:

Happy Second Anniversary TEA Party in the United States of America

Two years and one week ago:

Two years ago:

A Tea Party protester holds a sign saying “Remember: Dissent is Patriotic” at a Nashville Tea Party on February 27, 2009.

TEA Parties are still standing tall against the Yellow Journalists aka in the tank MSM, the Ridiculous Administration, the Union Goons, the False Organizational Thugs and the Socialist Minions.

When TEA Parties are in the right, everything else is nothing but LEFT overs~

TEA Party On!

🙂

Pathetic! Moveon.org in Little Rock! Right to Work State… Hello Stupid… Organization 101

So in all of Arkansas, there was no support for the AFL-CIO when they tried their utmost to agitate in Little Rock, at the State Capitol, this past Tuesday. Then Moveon.org piggybacks as it tried to move on into Little Rock again, today, for the ever manipulative and radicalized Rally to Save the American Dream and well…

…it was another lackluster turnout and sour attempt to push the Administration’s Union agenda. Hello…  moronic Moveon.orgArkansasRight to Work State! Unionized Teachers you should know better!

Union Slugs Trudging at Little Rock Capitol Building 2.26.11

Rally to Save the American Dream staged event in Little Rock Arkansas for moveon.org goons turns into a “preaching to the choir” event with Union Teachers trudging along. Lame… Lame… Lame turnout for a ‘National Event’. And evidently no pride in appearances… bwa ha ha.

10 Minutes Before High Goon! Unorganized Radically!

Any Questions of Teacher Unions Hand in Hand With Radicals?

One Again Hail, Hail the GANGS are Here! No Support in Arkansas! Hello... Patriots Live Here!

One again, such a disgraceful turnout and that is because there were any organizational and union thugs (Moveon.org & AEA) to show up on such a fine Saturday!

But AEA & Moveon.org do you want to see a real turnout with a genuine Patriotic cause?

TEA Party Fill Steps, Grounds all the Way Around the Capitol Bldg

Unions and Thug Organizations are so last century!

How Do You Fill a “Duece and a Quarter”? For $ 3.25 a Gallon Self-Serve!

It’s the beginning of bad times for all!

ah…remember the very good ol’ days…

If you have been on the planet, specifically in the United States of America, for any length of time, you will notice the sheer repetition of oil prices rising and Democratic ‘toolish’ Presidential terms. Patterns exist and constantly persist during Democratic administrations, not a quick spike that relaxes, but a gradual, comfortable, increase that doesn’t ever ease.

Jimmy Carter Idiot Move
Bill Clinton Obtuse Plan Caught
and today’s Bogus POS POTUS fallout results in:

I know that I shouldn’t complain as elsewhere others are paying more… however… you know if there was ever a time that “bailout monies” should have been used… it should have all been preparatory for this gouging of the American people. How much money was thrown at countries with nothing gained in return. How about restoring and repairing and enabling oil wells in the USA to operate. At least all of “We the People” in the United States would benefit from well controlled gas pump prices. But then again, this President, cares nothing for this country or the people. Obama has his own tooled agenda which proves more and more to be that of a Dictator like his pal Chavez.

Indiana General Assembly Has the Power to Replace the Vacant Democratic Legislators

Indiana Constitution

The pertinent Article is Article 4 and key sections are highlighted:

The Democratic Legislators have vacated their posts and moved to another state, there is no question that the Indiana General Assembly is well within its rights “…for the filling of such vacancies as may occur in the General Assembly…” God speed Indiana!

Des Moines Iowa Displays Lackluster Support for Union so School Bus It In!

Frank, our eyes on the ground, at the State Capitol in Iowa reported today:


These are pics I took today at the rally the unions had at the Iowa State Capitol in Des Moines. Please note that the buses in pics are separate buses unloading people from Omaha and other places. Also, West Des Moines schools should be very proud of using their school buses to bring in union people.

Our side was there for over an hour, however, SINCE SOMEONE HAS TO WORK AND PAY TAXES FOR THESE PEOPLE’S RETIREMENT, MOST OF OUR PEOPLE RETURNED TO WORK AS RESPONSIBLE CITIZENS.

The picture of them in front of the capitol was taken early, however, when I left it had expanded clear down to the steps at the forefront of the pic due to the influx of buses. I did manage to piss off some of the protestors however. One was a group of DSM firefighters who came up from behind us and thought they were going to bully their way between people. I stood my ground and dared them to come between myself and others. They approached to 3-4 ft from me, then veered off. Then I went to where buses were unloaded and made sure I was loud enough to be heard as I asked people unloading: HOW MUCH THEY PAYING YOU TO BE HERE??? WHO HAS BALLS ENOUGH TO TELL THE TRUTH?” Needless to say, I got some very dirty looks. J

I am hoping that all I send this to are able to receive it. Please respond if you do get it as some email accounts are not able to get big files. If you respond, I will be able to know who I need to compress all pics with winzip and send to those I don’t hear back from.

THANK YOU ALL FOR THE FIGHT YOU ARE WAGING AGAINST THE UNIONS WHO ARE ROBBING OUR COUNTRY. PLEASE PASS THESE ON IF YOU ARE ABLE AS THIS IS NOT JUST HAPPENING IN WIS. OR IOWA BUT COUNTRY WIDE.

Pathetic! AFL-CIO Turnout in Little Rock Paid Union Tools & Fools Garner No Support

Little Rock, Arkansas 11:30 am CST February 22, 2011

Even with fancy announcements on the SEIU page to join in and shoddy advertisements via the media

AFL-CIO Supporting Wisconsin Criminal Legislators, Unions & Doctors?

Little Rock couldn’t garner enough Union Thugs to even gain an audience other than reporters and children on a field trip. No one is buying into the Thug Union mentality of Wisconsin. Heck… most of the unions in Wisconsin are not from Wisconsin. Here’s all the support Little Rock could muster:

AFL-CIO Can't Even Follow Its "Red" Directive

Solo Observer or SEIU member? Hint Red Shirt & Badge

AFL-CIO & Unions Still Ranting Without an Audience after 25 Minutes

Such a disgraceful turnout and that is because there were any thugs to show up!

But AFL-CIO do you want to see a real turnout with a genuine Patriotic cause?
