Gustavus Adolphus College Student and Hateful Bigot Phil Cleary Wants To Stop the "Leftist Bias" and Tolerance On His College Campus (Video)

Phil Cleary, a Gustavus Adolphus student and the executive director of Gusties for Restoring America, which has its own Facebook page with a whole 38 members, is incensed that freshman orientation includes an hour long self awareness seminar called “The Inside Scoop” that advises freshman on how to deal with, respect, and and not be afraid or ashamed of being or dealing with people of different sexual orientations, religions, or races.

Cleary, a Minnesota native, (and who has all the earmarks of a self loathing closet case) has been blogging on, a right wing extremist website which “is designed to provide conservative activists with the resources, networking capabilities, and skills they need to revolutionize the struggle against leftist bias and abuse on college campuses”  The website is owned by Morton C. Blackwells Right Wing  “Leadership Institute” whose past students include Karl Rove, Mitch McConnell and Joe “You Lie!” Oh, and did I forget to mention that Cleary is also an Intern for the Office of the President at The Leadership Institute

Cleary, is not happy that Gustavus Adolphus an Evangelical Lutheran Church  Liberal Arts Cchool in Minnesota is teaching tolerance and respect towrds others (The ELC are the Lutherans who are okay with gays, btw) Cleary uploaded videos of the seminar on YouTube after “infiltrating” the event.

Blogs Cleary:

This second event [top clip] goes a bit further than the first, educating students about distinctions between gender and sex (as well as how to celebrate “LGPBBTTQ&A”), testimonies from gay, lesbian, and atheist students, and a call censor the content of speech after screaming cuss words at students in the dark.

Cleary commented, “This is propaganda that one might expect be taught in a Gender and Sexuality course at a secular, state institution. However, Gustavus is a Lutheran school in southern Minnesota founded by Swedish immigrants in the 1800’s, and these shameful seminars are presented during the first few hours and days that students are on campus before classes even begin.”

Now many of you probably think this is a non-story of some little bigot right wing asshole college student  and his 38 followers making a big deal out of nothing.  But this is how Karl Rove, Mitch McConnell and other wingnuts begin and spread their hate.

Oh yeah, and don’t forget this is how Hitler started also.  So the question is should we show tolerance for those who hate us?  or should we hold them up to public spectacle and ridicule and call them out for the hateful bigots that they are. 

I choose the latter.

  1. You do realize that the Nazi's were just like democrats, right? That Hitler has a TON MORE things in common with our beliefs than the conservative platform?

    Do you know anything about real history, or are you just another fucking dumbass that's ruining my party? It's fucktards like you that's costing us the election.

  2. Dear leftist Nazi and Cowardly Anonymous.

    Tolerance ends when hate speech, and the denail of human and civil rights begins.

    As for you leftist Nazi. Last I checked the Nazi's came to power playing on the fear and the patriotism of their people, more like the GOP than the democrats, and on the political spectrum Nazi's exist slightly to the right of the GOP.

    To pro0ve the point. Democrats don't believe in the superiority of the Aryan race, or the forced subservience of so-called "inferior" peoples. Democrats don't believe in anti-semitism. Democrats don't believe in autocracy. Democracts don't believe that democracy is a destabilizing force in society. Democrats don't view history as a race struggle, or believe that diversity weakens society. Democrats don't believe in Social Darwinism. Democrats know that "their" and "there" are two different words with completely different meanings.

    Have a great day!

  3. Who is Morton Blackpool? Retard, you could at least have some respect for the man.

    But then again, you can't spell school or figure out what the elcA is.

    So why I expect you to do that?

  4. Welcome Phil!

    Be a man though and post under your own name.

    And thanks for letting me know about the typo, I don;t want to get that info wrong.

    Swing Hiel Little Adolph.

    You are cute but oh so evil.

  5. I don't think Phil is a Nazi. I do however think that having an orientation mainly focused on telling a bunch of freshman that their worth is in their sexuality or race is a little dehumanizing. Its telling people they are not important as human beings they are only important as gays or lesbians or athiests or christians (if they would have mentioned it). That orientation is weird as balls and not that funny but freshman still laugh because its college and they think its supposed to be cool and this is what college is all about. I just finished orientation at a rather liberal catholic school in Rhode Island as a transfer from Gustavus. Here they dont do weird shows yelling at freshman telling them they are racist and close minded cause they speak out against premarital sex or believe in God. They just say welcome to Salve Regina University. We are a catholic school but admit to not really holding any traditional values and then they give you a butt load of homework to start on.

  6. Its not the whole Orientation. It;s a one hour seminar. And it only stresed the different types of people on campus and to be tolerant.

    "Here they dont do weird shows yelling at freshman telling them they are racist and close minded cause they speak out against premarital sex or believe in God." They don't at Gustavus Adolphus either. And if you read the article or watched the video's you would know that.

    And of course you don't think Phil is a Nazi. You are just like him

What do you think?
