Great Moments in College Debate
— Ace

As Fark says: You're doing it wrong.

This is very real. The decrepit old Sasquatch-lookin' hippie who jumps in is a professor and debate coach at Fort Hays State University. The black woman is the Pittsburgh coach.

The dispute involves one team receiving low scores.

Low scores? These latter-day Ciceros? No way.

Note he screams "This is not about fuckin' marijuana." Why do I think this is at least partly about fuckin' marijuana?

Profanity & Brief Sidal Nudity Warning. But worth it. It's like an intellectual/academic version of Hoosiers.

"It's about how you carry yourself."

Preach it, brother.

Please note that not enough people are going to college. Not enough of our non-academically-inclined students are attending these marginal, barely-accredited bottom-rung colleges and receiving the sage wisdom of mutants like this.

Update: Bigfoot lives? And is hoping for tenure?

billshanahan.jpg

That's not a mugshot. That's a glamor shot from (seriously) Professor/Debate Coach/Asshole Exhibitionist Bill Shanahan's blog. In which you'll find nuggets of wisdom such as this:

This election again offers a choice basically between only two candidates. Each one regularly presents their respective constituency with procedural, policy, and other reasons to vote against them.

Still, recent history suggests only two choices are viable and that most voters will vote for one or the other. Despite differences and disagreements with a particular candidate, voters are more likely to vote for the viable candidate that best represents their beliefs.

Ralph Nader's legitimate response to his critics that he brought out new voters who would not otherwise have voted is no longer relevant. Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama helped bring out new voters who were energized to vote for a historic Democratic president.

Even Ron Paul ended his bid for the Republican nomination. Where his votes will go, though, no one knows. Some experts think they will slide to John McBush. Others suggest Libertarian candidate Bob Barr or Constitution candidate Chuck Baldwin.

Not only is that painfully, retardedly obvious -- only one of the two major candidates has a shot at winning? Fo' rizzle? -- but he shows his nuance with the appellation "John McBush," which is only a few steps up from "Prezmodent Chimphitler McMurderburton."

Also note he's a professor of Speech and Communications, but titles blog-posts with insensible gibberish such as...

On the Precipice of an Historic Occasion

Occasions have precipices? Oh well. He's a professor of Speech and Communication, not Geography and Cartography. Nevermind the fact that he actually means that title to suggest "on the verge of a singularity of pure awesome" (that is, Obama's winning the nomination), so it's a bit strange to be talking about precipices and chasms and cliffs and yawning abysses.

Remember: This is not about the fuckin' marijuana.


Thanks to BRD for that. Awesome.

13 Let's see... a screaming hippie and an angry black woman threatening violence.  Luckily I've had been subjected to years of Diversity training that teach me that this is random behavior, and certainly not typical of any specific groups.  Furthermore, we should not judge this behavior, but instead embrace it, as it will broaden our pers... BLEEAAHHHHH!!!    oh man... I.T. is not gonna be happy about that...

Posted by: Terry at August 14, 2008 09:13 AM (GAQ/Q)

14 Both parties should be fired.  Chances of that 1,000,000 to 1 against.  Sensitivity training and full tenure will be the most likely punishment.

It's amazing that some kids survive the four year brainwashing that college has become without needing serious therapy.

16 "Fuck You!"
"No! Fuck You!"

High level discourse there. 

Good thing the big woman with the mullet was there to take control of the situation after the other would-be mediator guy broke down in tears.  Hearing him whimper in the background has gotta be the best part of the video.

19 Fort Hays academic officer Larry Gould -- "We're sure that there's probably some facts and information that's just not available. I mean, you see a lot on the video, but we need to make sure everything is revealed before we take any action," said Gould.

More than enough has been revealed, thank you.

22 A preview of a Democrat-controlled America.

A bunch of morons screaming, emoting, cursing and stomping around arguing about things that don't matter to anybody outside of a small constituency group. Doing nothing. Signifying nothing. Getting nothing accomplished, and blaming the others when people take notice and lose interest.

Or, if that doesn't work for you, two Barack Obama supporters talking about "the issues" and resolving them in a calm, level-headed, academically rigorous manner.

I'm confused.

Was he attempting to use his ponytail as a weapon, or please the rain gods?

Judging by his body language and the way he swings his arms around, I'm forced to conclude his father was the lead singer for Jethro Tull, and his mother was rhesis monkey.

Posted by: Entropy at August 14, 2008 09:30 AM (m6c4H)

26 He wasn't turning tail, he was flashing the new Obama symbol to demonstrate his solidiarity.

turned tail- wow, walked into that.

Just watched all of it and I started to really get behind errr support him...seriously, he won me over by the end.

Alien vs. predator- hilarious

the one black guy in the yellow shirt at the end sobbing is too much- so funny- liberalism is alive and well.  After seeing such a spectacle- you wonder if some of these impressionable college kids will just walk out of that lecture hall and straight to the nearest RNC headquarters

31 "Bill received his BS degree in speech communication from Boston's Suffolk University, his MA in Communication from Wake Forest University and his PhD in Speech Communication from University of Texas at Austin. He has also served in the role of debate coach at several other universities." All of these institutions must be extremely proud!

32 I wonder what he sees in the mirror that makes him think that the ponytail, glasses, and stringy beard are attarctive. When you're only a pair of glasses and a shampoo away from looking like a homeless guy, it might be time to consider a new look.

Posted by: WalrusRex at August 14, 2008 09:39 AM (DVVXZ)

34 Yeah, the Vietnam war has a lot to answer for. Or rather the educational deferment of the draft has a lot to answer for. Normally, old fucks like this hippie would've graduated in Philosophy or some such shit and assumed their natural position in life sitting outside a 7-11 with a bottle of Mad Dog20/20. The draft deferment gave them enough incentive to stay in school and get a PhD, which of course led to a career in as a professor at some BFE McDonald's U level college. Any way, that's why our colleges are riddled top to bottom with the most leftarded, least intellectual, least patriotic members of the boomer generation.

They do make him look attarctive.  But Attractive, NFW, unless you are comparing him to that dead-ape-in-a-crate from the Bigfoot post.  Even then, you'd have to critically evaluate the dead ape's ass to be sure.

51 I don't think the crazy person is screaming, 'This is not about fucking marijuana!' I'm sure what he is screaming, but I don't think it's that. Unless he has a nuanced way of pronouncing it. Eh, what do I know? I'm not a PhD like this guy.

The fact that you were able to get a video displaying the extent of the debate is impressive.  The fact that this pot-smoking charlatan is a Professor at a University is not too surprising.  No, these fraud failures are as common as the different flavors of massengale douches one would find in the lady's section of the local drug store. 

It is amazing that Dr. Squigglesworth did not get his head caved in by one of the debaters, only to subdue him, please the crowd, and actually move on to a real debate (such as: "What is the best way to bash in the head of a frantic pot-smoking, hippie fraud-falure non-tenured professor who thinks he looks cool jumping about screaming like a Richard Gere with too many gerbils clawin'about?")

Cuz, I care about people. I love hearing college students saying "allyall". Marvelous, a grown man crying, or was that that coach...what do these people actually do for a living?

I once wrote a book about Nietzche's and Camus' episodes of giving each other purple nurples and the reception of such in Post-Structuralist Macedonia.

Wait a minute!!! I went to this guy's blog, AND HE'S A DEMOCRAT??? A pony-tailed shoeless college professor, who thinks screaming and swearing is a winning debate style, and whose arrogance far outstrips his worth, and he's a Democrat? I never saw that one coming.

He's saying screaming "It's not about the win or the loss!"  But it was funnier when I thought it wasn't about the fuckin' marijuana.

103 "Most white men when confronted by angry screaming black girl will turn tail and run" Dan, you might just be projecting a bit of your own personal issues. 17 years of marriage, and many confrontations, and while I finally walked away, I never had the slightest urge to turn tail and run.... (from her or any other "screaming black girls").

108 How the fuck am I ever gonna get those 8 minutes and 55 seconds back. I only held on the whole way to see the delightful contortions of an aneurism. I bet that dork didn't get a single ounce of love during the summer of love.

109 "This is dialectics. It's very simple dialectics. It's one through nine. No maybes, no supposes, no fractions. You can't travel in space. You can't go out into space, you know, without like, you know, with fractions. What are you gonna land on? One-quarter? Three-eighths? What are you gonna do when you go from here to Venus? That's dialectics. Physics, okay? Dialectic logic is, there's only love and hate. You either love somebody, or you hate him."

110 After seeing such a spectacle- you wonder if some of these impressionable college kids will just walk out of that lecture hall and straight to the nearest RNC headquarters kegger.

Fixed.

having sat thru this, i am struck by several things.

1.  I can't believe I sat through this.

2.  How the hell did "Fort Hays State" end up in a competition with Emory, Vanderbilt and Pitt?

3.  I've never heard a speech about "building bridges" sound so angry

4.  The black dude started crying.

113 Makes me ashamed to admit that my bachelor's is from a Kansas university

He may have been perfectly normal until he came down here and got his Phd at UT Austin. I would never have recovered from my time there without the help of a Higher Power. OTOH, that guy may have been driven crazy by 7 1/2 years of Bush. So give W some credit too.

I agree with whoever it was that pointed out its people like this that are going to Denver as delegates to the DNC. More popcorn, please.

He can't even write correctly.  "Each one regularly presents their respective constituency..."  It should be "Each one regularly presents HIS respective constituency..."  Each is singular.  What a dumbass.

118 And this all took place at Emory...where I did time attended. And they wonder why I never give anything back.

119 I work at the same "BFE McDonalds U level" instiution as this guy and it's obvious a lot of you know nothing of which you speak. First, our school regularly performs at a high level when compared to other institutions of our size, and our students place very well at national competitions against larger schools  Second, he in no way represents the faculty at our school or most others. He is not in a tenure-track position, he was hired to build a debate program and he built a successful one.
