Massey now has 2 resident activists

Universities used to be the places to go to get a higher education but nowadays, it seems that all they are there for is to brainwash young people. Sue Bradford has taken up a post at Massey University as their resident activist. Yes, you read that correctly. The resident activist at Massey University.

Obviously, she is intended to be there to keep Jan Thomas company. This from Stuff quote:

The well-known activist and former Green Party MP is the activist in residence at Massey University in Palmerston North for a week.

Bradford was asked about a month ago by professor Mohan Dutta​, who is the dean’s chair of communication for the new Centre for Culture-Centred Approach to Research and Evaluation, to take the position.

The two are producing a paper on the partnership between academics and activists in struggles of the oppressed. end quote.

Aren’t they supposed to be preparing kids for their careers? Teaching subjects such as Engineering, Geology, Psychology? Why on earth are they producing a paper on the partnership between activists and academics? What a waste of time. quote:

“This question around the relationship between people who are active outside in grassroots organisations and how people inside the universities can work together is quite fraught and difficult because there are often problems,” Bradford said. end quote.

‘Active’ is one thing, but an ‘activist’ is quite another. Let us not get confused between the two. quote:

“But there are also huge advantages to both. It has never been an easy path in this country.”

She said this week was an opportunity to explore the relationship between activists and academics.

“Often, academics are seen as people that come in and do research on us, do their PhDs on us.” end quote.

Why would anyone want to do a PhD on Sue Bradford? Seriously, how could that possibly advance the world? quote:

Bradford said there wasn’t the same level of political activity in this generation of students as there had been in the past. end quote.

No, because nowadays, students spend a fortune on tertiary fees and have massive student loans, so they need to concentrate on what will get them to the next stage in their careers and getting arrested on picket lines probably isn’t the greatest thing to have on one’s CV. quote:

Dutta brought the CARE centre with him to Massey from the National University of Singapore and he is a leading scholar for health communication and is a researcher of indigenous rights and activism.

He said the work of CARE was about creating communication platforms for democratic spaces so communities in disenfranchised places had a voice.

The centre also looks at poverty and health for migrants and refugees. end quote.

It seems that Massey University already has a fairly robust activist wing, strengthened by the addition of Sue Bradford, activist extraordinaire.

I just can’t see what benefit this will have for students working on their degrees to get ahead in life.

Studying poverty and indigenous rights does not help students to get ahead in life. Degrees in Economics, Civil Engineering, Law or Accountancy are better subjects to consider.

One thing you can be sure about. This particular appointment might only be for one week, but that will not be the end of it. It is only a matter of time before Bradford is a permanent member of staff at the university.

God help the students at Massey who go there to actually accomplish something. The university is now nothing more than a political mouthpiece for far-left politics. Keep your kids away from the place, at all costs.
