Brainwashing 101

>> Sunday, January 23, 2005

Evan Coyne Maloney brings you a teaser for his upcoming feature length film Brainwashing 101.

The concept is to visit various colleges and film bias on campus. It was so easy to find material that they quickly decided to profile only a dozen campuses. The "teaser" is 45 minutes long and features interviews with students, professors and academic advisors. Oh. My. God. Many of the professors' comments, knowing full well that they are being filmed are breathtaking in their arrogance and racist [against whites, white males to be specific] attitudes. "Anybody who blows up the Pentagon gets my vote", said by a professor on September 11th, 2001 and "The only true heroes are those who find ways to defeat the US Military", said by a professor in 2002 stand out in my mind.

An economics professor at Bucknell, the filmaker's alma mater, goes on and on about Marx and how black and feminist economics books are doing good work continuing Marx's vision. It's "cutting edge". "Our big danger is the trustees who want to oversite our curriculum. They want to add an American Studies major. Implicitly meaning that American studies should be about...celebrating America." "We were trained in these areas. And to have somebody who does not know our field telling us what to teach is the height of arrogance."

Be sure to get the DVD when it comes out.
