MIT Hosts ‘Islamphobia Accelerates Global Warming’ Speaker From Australia


MIT has invited Ghassan Hage from Australia to bloviate about how ‘Islamphobia’ the idea that people may be terrified of Muslim radical terrorists screaming ‘Allah akbar!’ while slaughtering everyone in sight.  He claims that this fear of insane Muslim terrorists is also causing…hold onto your knickers…GLOBAL WARMING, too!  Tying all the liberal phobias and freakouts into one bundle, he is popular with some campus youth who have little world experience and thus, easy targets for strange and contradictory lunacy lies.


Before talking about this crazy business, I want to say here that once upon a time, I was the winner of the National German Language contest in the US, tied with a German student who took the exam under false presentations and after winning this at age 16, I got a scholarship to study and Germany for a year and was eventually deported after school ended in summer when I was running around Europe in 1968, giving speeches to student rebellions and was caught finally in Nüremburg when I foolishly let it be known that some Czech students were going to smuggle me into Prague…fun days, back then.  Foolish youth!


Well, in the US, I was working towards a degree in the German Language and already wracked up quite a resume when this was brutally eliminated from nearly all universities and German was no longer a  major, only a minor and I was  minoring in music and had Russian and Hebrew under my belt, too.  Perfect for working inside the CIA but not when one is fighting the CIA so I had to kiss all that goodbye and good riddance so I instead, went into construction business and made money the hard way, by really working.


Since my sudden departure from Academia to enter the Real World and make Real Money, things seem to have slipped into oblivia there.  MIT, I often trotted over there to hang out with the practical students who study stuff that is useful to society.  There was none of the crazy sixties silliness there and when I worked for Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) in the computer research labs, I did see some creeping political-correct stuff entering the science institutes and now…it is like kudzu, overwhelming everything, everywhere in academia and no one is allowed to say, ‘This is insane bullshit’.


Is ISLAMOPHOBIA accelerating global warming? | MIT Global Studies and Languages is a perfect example of creepy kudzu brain eating zombies at work:

Monday, May 9, 2016 – 5:00pm

The Ecology and Justice Forum In Global Studies And Languages Presents:

Ghassan Hage

Ghassan Hage is Future Generation Professor in the School of Philosophy, Anthropology and Social Inquiry, University of Melbourne

Introduced By Bettina Stoetzer, Global Studies And Languages

Mon. May 9
5:00 pm

This talk examines the relation between Islamophobia as the dominant form of racism today and the ecological crisis. It looks at the three common ways in which the two phenomena are seen to be linked: as an entanglement of two crises, metaphorically related with one being a source of imagery for the other and both originating in colonial forms of capitalist accumulation. The talk proposes a fourth way of linking the two: an argument that they are both emanating from a similar mode of being, or enmeshment, in the world, what is referred to as ‘generalised domestication.’



Ghassan Hage has held many visting positions across the world including in Harvard, University of Copenhagen, Ecoles des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales and American University of Beirut. He works in the comparative anthropology of nationalism, multiculturalism, diaspora and racism and on the relation between anthropology, philosophy and social and political theory. His most well-known work is White Nation: Fantasies of white supremacy in a multicultural society(Routledge 2000). His is also the author of Alter-Politics: Critical Anthropology and the Radical Imaginary (Melbourne University Press 2015). He is currently working on a book titled Is Islamophobia Accelerating Global Warming? and has most recently published a piece in American Ethnologist, titled: “Etat de Siege. A Dying Domesticating Colonialism?” (2016) that engages with the contemporary “refugee crisis”  in Europe and beyond.


The talk is free and open to the public.

Yes, the ‘thesis’ is, global warming is caused by people who are terrified of Muslim terrorists!  The lady introducing this speech by a foaming at the mouth Muslim intellectual is Betina Stoetzer who teaches basic German (for a languages minor degree) is the classic Eurocrat person from overseas who is an ‘internationalist’ and thinks that we should be ‘diverse’ which is why she is over here in the US and not in Europe…hahaha.

Global Studies and Languages values diversity and inclusion of our students, faculty, and staff with regard to their backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives. Diversity and inclusion are furthermore central to our curriculum, with many of our subjects dedicated to multicultural perspectives, or questions of race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, religion, class, ability, and social justice.


This isn’t about learning languages.  It is about Marxist class/race warfare!  HAHAHA.  Bettina Stoetzer | MIT Global Studies and Languages is running the ruined remains of the German Department at MIT as a part time job.  Here is her real work:


Bettina Stoetzer is an anthropologist whose research focuses on the intersections of ecology, globalization, and urban social justice. Her current book project, Ruderal City: Ecologies of Migration and Urban Life, explores the changing cultural politics of nature and citizenship in the city of Berlin.


Drawing on ongoing fieldwork with immigrant and refugee communities, as well as environmentalists, ecologists, and policy makers, the book illustrates that human-environment relations have become a key register through which urban citizenship is articulated in contemporary Europe.


More specifically, Ruderal City engages several sites that have figured prominently in German national imaginaries – urban wastelands, gardens, forests, and parks – to show how current racial, ethnic and class inequalities are reconfigured in conflicts over the use, knowledge and management of nature and green spaces. Bettina holds an M.A. in Sociology and Media Studies from the University of Goettingen and she completed her Ph.D. in Anthropology at the University of California Santa Cruz in 2011.


Before coming to MIT, Bettina Stoetzer was a Harper Fellow in the Society of Fellows at the University of Chicago. She has published on topics such as transnationalism, cities, affect, ecology, and film. She also is the author of a book on feminism and anti-racism in Germany (InDifferenzen, argument, 2004) and has co-edited Shock and Awe. War on Words (New Pacific Press, 2004) – a collection of essays that explores the current global situation through the political lives of words.


There are no Americans running German programs in the top schools.  The Germans who taught me gave me respect because I went to Tübingen, Germany, which is right next to Goettingen which is in Southern Germany and I mastered the language the hard way, thoroughly.  Now, the universities simply import foreign labor to teach which is why this woman’s resume uses the made-up word ‘imaginaries’ describing her Marxist theories.


She notes that these imaginaries lead to conflicts over ‘knowledge…and green spaces.’  Anyone looking at the Middle East destruction can see what that does to ‘green spaces’.  This creepy woman isn’t even a German Language specialist like I was, she is a SOCIOLOGY person!  And ‘Anthropology’ too.  What is she doing, running a language program?


As for the Islamaphobia Muslim ‘professor’, why is he being hired to spew this sort of insane tripe?  This is total lunacy.  One can see how Germany was nearly totally destroyed by a bunch of guys like these two people who told the Germans that they are cursed for being Deutsch and should allow armies of dangerous, angry Muslim males to invade and attack.


Tons of leftist propaganda has been dumped onto German heads over the years as the Maoists retreated to the campuses and got degrees and accept very bad pay to spew their poison.  I looked at what is going on and I did work in academia as recently as 1994 and it is a hell hole operation with part time staff working at slave wages.  Only Maoists would accept this, any sane person would, like me, go elsewhere for money.

    So, between this and the Syrian “good terrorist / bad terrorist” theme, I am reminded of that old advertisement for Almond Joy and Mounds.

    Sometimes you feel like an islamophobe, sometimes you don’t.

    I hope this stupid MIT professor has some Mooslums move in next door to him…

  2. Jim R

    Or if he IS a Muslim, I hope his children run off to fight in the Middle East…

  3. Christian W

    Meanwhile an Italian economics professor was profiled as a Muslim terrorist on a US flight by fellow passenger… because he was writing strange symbols on his notepad (maths equations). Doh!

  4. Christian W

    War criminal and President of the United States of America Barack Obama gives war criminal Henry Kissinger a Distinguished Service Medal.

    The sick elites have no shame.

  5. DM

    Well, when you have nothing worth-while to do, there is always academia. Time to re-think the entire concept of ‘universities’?

  6. Christian W

    The US/UK and France have blocked a Russian proposal to the UN to add Al-Qaeda partner groups Ahrar al-Sham and Jaish al-Islam (al-Nusra groups) to the list of terrorist groups…

  7. emsnews

    Bin Laden was a ‘good’ terrorist, too. Worked for the CIA.

  8. Petruchio

    @#7 Elaine: you forgot to mention the close, personal ties of the bin Laden family to the Bush Crime Family. Disgusting….

  9. Johnny English

    Maybe it’s a good thing that academia has room to shelter a few bonkers pseudo intellectuals like this pair.

    1. It keeps them out of mental institutions.

    2. They demonstrate to basically useless undergraduates how to imagineer
    their ways into lucrative “public service” and third sector jobs.

    3. They provide grist to the critical thinking mill.

    Yes, they are contemptible, but why call them Marxist?

    Marx was not a.f.a.i.k. interested in identity politics and diversity, or rather, he only had time for two identities – the proletariat and the bourgeoisie. He dismissed the gentry / aristocracy as increasingly irrelevant. (he may have missed a trick there!)

    He stated that the proletariat had no nation (which when one thinks about it is irrefutable – for that matter how much United States does the average “middle class” American own) and insisted that it should develop an internationalist outlook in order to confront international capital. (well I never!). Workers of the world unite. So class war by all means, race war never.

    As for your Maoists retreating to the campuses… for very low pay. Well what else is a stupid pampered privileged poseur to do in this world. Can’t be any worse than flipping burgers.

    wth ?? imaginaries–sure it is made up but what the hell is she trying to convey thru it?

  11. Lou

    In the era of the Internet, are language departments needed?

    What is she doing, running a language program? –she is a ‘two fer’ as in 2 fer the price of one. She is ultra left and female.
    In LA area, lets see—-Santa Monicas Police chief is BLACK and female. As is the citys college president [she was a ‘diversity officer]. When I mentioned this to an ex teacher, he noted, SO IS LA UNIFIED PRESIDENT.

    And our next senator? hmmmm.
    Kamala Harris is the one to beat for the seat of outgoing California senator Barbara Boxer.

    The strongest part of her resume is that she is a ‘2 fer’ mixed race AND femme.She had a coal burner and a black father for parents.
    And f—–g her way to the top didn’t hurt:
