Yesterday we told you about a radical professor at USC -- trash Republicans repeatedly to a students we got an update from the school and we're gonna tell you about it in a moment.
But first let's start with another university controversy here on the East Coast.
Harvard is hosted some legends over the years Winston Churchill spoke there in 1943.
There was John F.
Kennedy in 1960 team.
Credit Scott king in 1968 and Mother Teresa in eighty -- But here we are in 2013.
When we've invited sexist misogynist stick rapper name picked out here are some of his greatest hits.
-- And union pain teens -- and.
And -- -- -- BNP email address this as easy until now we've.
A and and and yeah.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- and now we get our resident wrapped expert and no not performer data about Bob you have studied wrapped extensive.
-- and aren't in the long time historian on -- music I don't that they have looses they -- idea I.
I'm not sure I don't see it was a big deal is this guys each clearly he's decided -- all the nasty -- you talking about.
But it's Harvard I mean the you know did you beat these people invite all kinds of wackos to Harvard and anybody -- they invited.
I was there an 89 and and I was protests that bit you referred to as a bit.
I don't yeah I don't I would agree this thing this -- says except that I don't see how you get a big I mean what are you gonna do the that they have the right to hire they want and.
Let it go I think got out that it's the right thing but -- what the wrapping -- -- even good that's an even come close Dana Perino.
It's boring unimaginative.
-- -- basically stuck in 1994.
But the thing that it's it's the fact that it's I'm I'm I'm with you I don't care who goes there.
But at least be fair you could have lady heating rapper but not a god fearing Christian.
A welcome mat for one person becomes a warpath for another depending on their political ideologies or their beliefs.
Especially the believes happened to be somewhat traditional.
That they turn on and I think that's the problem -- -- woody think of this as a Harvard in nineteen -- letting this guy you know perform well what should be the call here.
I guess that -- a performance.
-- -- lyrics are no different than any other rap lyrics that are on the street right now you can you can not believe.
I said yesterday you can't believe.
Some are worse than this this is typical -- -- this hot and I hear so much of this -- you have no idea I guess I made out of you don't sought by the way every.
-- fourteen year old boy in the suburbs thinks he's a rapper.
Okay they -- -- -- they all freestyle they all stand around and groups and freestyle like this was a I'll hopefully my son doesn't use those terms -- is -- -- like that or or race I hope -- they're not doing -- but they they all think they're this guy.
Yeah they really -- and it's just you know Harvard where they are eighteen to 22 year old.
You know saying same kids that you have a low level this guy's got a big wrapper even in in it and music criticism they consider -- a joke.
So you should be subject Christians there in basic Christian and some -- and this is hardly need to get to do -- that would that's my point yeah.
-- -- -- I bought into Iraq brings up a number of online -- petitions for people to get involved to have harbored reconsidered the position here of having him.
In a statement college events board at Harvard concert commission's stated in respecting those students who do not wish to attend performances that you don't like it -- don't go.
Would still like to take part in yard fast we have moved back the headliner start times another -- back in a -- So that he's not performing early on he'll perform late when maybe people have -- I get enough.
-- -- Coming up but I thought I'd -- politics I'm having a hard time -- -- out -- -- it is part I.
What -- rated so it's a liberal school they they do these types of things if you if you don't I mean if if their students that are against -- and they can.
So criticizes you don't golf -- you don't do -- -- Form sort of the can hurt dash -- rights this debate -- can't I get angry I mean that's what -- other students it's not that there -- other students.
That complained about this because they said look we work on things like rape on campus -- LB GT that type of -- organizations.
And they -- the ones that we're offended to vapors rising tensions and then maybe we should do this here on our campus that's also their right.
To protest -- I just don't know where what has happened to the sensitivity -- that -- have.
-- hard just even appreciating.
How bad that -- -- -- when Rush Limbaugh.
Called Sandra block -- slot.
And then he apologize for that after a ton of criticism didn't take long to apologize because I think he realized right away that it was taken the wrong way.
There's a lot of people on college campuses all around the came to her defense because she was -- been attacked by crazy right -- -- Rush Limbaugh.
Then you can go on a campus and have somebody say when you can -- you can even hear what he said because assault leaps -- it's back and net and know what he's actually invited to come -- do performance for the students there is a double standard -- kept in the.
But it would not rush rush was -- he just like a million people we talked to me says that about slut that -- -- -- Under wherever I Sandra -- -- -- -- -- let's go to our the and he was losing -- -- just I didn't -- -- no question about.
-- cystic but overall why is it okay why doesn't anyone ever talk about.
And take on it their language and some and attitudes that are described in -- Well I'll tell you I'd -- It's racism of low expectations.
-- -- no one wants to express disgust.
-- of the quality or the content found in a lot of music because they don't want to be perceived as uncool but more importantly don't want to be perceived as bigoted.
What what we've done now is what we said that there are certain.
Denigrating elements in society that are being perceived as part of -- culture and because they're part of a culture you cannot point them out is being.
Curtis and this is where the First Lady the president now I'd say -- really happen tent so to come in and say a lot of this stuff is bad.
I'm the one that drives me crazy is there's that there's there's a morality in here that needs to be addressed.
The First Lady the president prefer to to inject morality into things like obesity and climate -- Artificial morality is when it that this is a legitimate moral problem and they could be real heroes.
Have a why can't white Erica no you don't think that's an improbable wise it okay for him is why do you women to demean black women if you had a white -- not saying it's so -- -- and that's -- -- I'm saying it's a product its commerce it it if if you start saying you can't do that.
You're still asserting that -- saying what.
-- what's the blog that's -- -- but you you say there's a moral issue going yet you can attribute that strikes you that the body.
You can't call you can say I want the woman -- -- -- of what they can do it but she's you're censoring his his lyrics no but would -- I would never say that I I it's not about censoring it's about having the guts to address a decline in in need in cup -- and human commerce that's -- But here's the people that should be it should be addressing -- people like Jesse Jackson Al Sharpton people like that because this is object generally tended to be directed to minority community.
It exploits one of the worst things happen a minority trees whether it's an idea of having kids well -- with a mom got to the rest of it and I.
I'm a little bit disturb the united Michelle Obama got to fight for maybe she -- -- talk about this but and by the way obesity is a serious problem.
It's not a morning it's not about to global wood and eight.
-- I'm so good at Nelson is the author of black women redefine dispelling myths and discovered -- nominee in the age Michelle Obama feels that this is an opportunity for.
The First Lady for Michelle Obama -- has -- -- -- -- issues like this that we why aren't we hearing here on this particular topic.
-- -- she's been vocal for women you know across the board over the years so why not mentioning the speech or address then send it.
I dated bonds they allow lot of.
Have any idea that can of worms you're gonna open up -- Michelle Obama takes takes -- this one.
Tight -- grads.
Lyrics takes him down because of because of its misogynist sort sexist or whatever it is.
I mean there then you're really gonna look at.
Probably 80% of the rap songs may be -- But we're at -- -- or moral consistency on the part of the First Lady and other equipment and nobody more than do you believe in what I want and I just yet.
When a kid is a first person shooter and a video game and in such blowing people away indiscriminately innings in an area.
It's not good news Barack I can understand.
I think thinking about I'm -- we wing thinking that eliminating those important comments.
I'll let you -- we talked about story yesterday from USC got a lot about people talking about it out the professor what he had to say about Republicans to -- in the East Coast.
To the west -- Operator or British.
Over 30% registration in the states conservatives who.
But -- -- able to do this morning.
Either he didn't go get a break out and especially all the time our record in print and -- -- -- Is the last vestiges remotely.
OK so out of the professor we're talking about that yesterday -- straight -- and the interesting thing is you see is defending this professor at they have released the statement.
That states the freedom to take unpopular positions and the freedom to express those positions publicly.
We firmly protect their right to express those views and that's Elizabeth Gary USC's -- us -- -- You can -- countless -- can I respond to that.
No one says he doesn't have the right to say that this is typical self righteous liberal -- tactics and when they're saying that like oh what you're trying to do was take the way the right.
No word not were just pointing out that this is biased dialogue that is occurring on campus and it's denigrating American higher education however we're not saying don't do it were just saying you should do it let.
-- -- -- -- -- I'm sorry Dana let me be consistent here there's a big difference between what this guy did.
And what Harvard invite someone in who who do does have a performance at night where you have an option to go and watch this performs these kids are on a -- They have to get -- yeah they've signed up for their pay -- the boy -- that that man and that is the -- -- line between what Harvard did what US sees it -- definitely not be defending this.
And that's why the -- should called the university and pull their kids in the class and me make this thing hasn't had a -- and stick up -- just gonna say that and in a robust debate do annual reviews of performance.
The professors they ought to bring this video and it just decide if this is a kind of quality.
-- not what he said but he the most boring professor -- ever -- And that's what lent that 52 to sixty some thousand dollars USC will afford you really that's how you worked so hard to put your kids to a school like that listened to that aren't.
-- -- -- -- the -- the the only person this table which is really unusual to disagree with his -- to comment because.
What this is basically saying is this is Greg Gutfeld.
The poster child for all.
All the liberal professors at all.
If that since Bob not I think there are plenty of exceptions you don't you -- this that is again.
Six and I don't think I think it's time that you pull up some of those conservative professors that spew conservative right wing stuff through to their captain -- literally get that.
An opportunity they had.
And as -- -- on the Beckel almanac.
