The late 80’s alt-right

April 4, 2017

Before there was Milo, or Mike Cernovich, there was Pete Schaub.  It appears Pete Schaub was too early, however.  I was attending the University of Washington at the time the Pete Shaub controversy occurred.  In it, we find the precursor to today’s modern snowflakes.

As an eyewitness to many of the events which transpired at that time, I can say Pete Shaub was the perfect alt-right threat to the special snowflakes in that era.  He was blond, muscular, good-looking, articulate, and funny as hell.

Basically Shaub was kicked out of a women’s studies course for questioning the BS statistics that inverted truth on its head, and glorified lesbianism.  He may have been more antagonistic than that; I cannot say, but anytime I was around him, Pete got the better of the feminists.

I was not taking this  women’s studies class at that time, so I cannot vouch for his behavior in the class.  But, I can say, that appearances on Town Meeting (with Ken Schram, and Gloria Allred), Pete had the many women in the audience turning against Gloria Allred.  And on campus, during the many protests, Pete got the better of the feminists shouting through blow horns.

So Shaub went to the dean of the arts and sciences department about being kicked out of the women studies class, and the associate dean, James Nason, trying to appease both sides, told Pete he would give him credit so long as he dropped the course, which Pete agreed.

So here is the thing.  I would suggest that was a reasonable tactic by the associate dean of arts and sciences, but the only problem is we are dealing with special snowflakes.  But I am entertained by the take of the NY Times:

“Some class members asserted that Mr. Schaub’s repeated questions, and what became his antagonistic view of the class, made them afraid to express their own views.”

Poor special snowflakes.

The NY Times confesses:

“But other class members, including some women who identified themselves feminists, said Mr. Schaub was never disruptive and that his only offense was to challenge the views of the two instructors, Donna Langston and DanaMichele. ‘It’s Too Conservative'”

So, I guess Dana-Michele Brown resigned from the University of Washington, and we haven’t heard from her since….I guess Pete Schaub got the best of her, too.   From my perspective at the time, the only one trying to intimidate others were the feminist.  It certainly wasn’t Pete Shaub.

God Bless him.  I wonder where he is now.
