University of London Student Calls for Removal of White Philosophers From Curriculum

Ali Habib, co-president of the Student Union for Democracy and Education at the School of Oriental and African Studies of the University of London, has called for the removal of European philosophers from the curriculum. He and his student union have demanded the University drop Plato, Descartes, Kant, and Russel simply as they were white in order to “decolonize the University” and “confront the white institution.” The multicultural, anti-European students wish to only study philosophy from a “critical standpoint” so that they may sieve out all European thinking through “acknowledging the colonial context in which so-called ‘Enlightenment’ philosophers wrote within.” Ali Habib (pictured above), the Yemenite student officer responsible for the statement, is a known supporter of Marxist anti-colonial philosopher Frantz Fanon who died of leukemia while fighting for the Algerian National Liberation Front

Philosopher Sir Roger Scruton responded:

This suggests ignorance and a determination not to overcome that ignorance. You can’t rule out a whole area of intellectual endeavour without having investigated it and clearly they haven’t investigated what they mean by white philosophy. If they think there is a colonial context from which Kant’s Critique of Pure Reason arose, I would like to hear it.

Sir Anthony Seldon, the vice-chancellor of Buckingham University:

“There is a real danger political correctness is getting out of control. We need to understand the world as it was and not to rewrite history as some might like it to have been.”

    The Death Metal Underground advises Ali Habib that if he truly wishes to experience life without the influence of and advances due to Western thought he should:

  1. Move back to Yemen. What would his chances be of reaching Great Britain without the modern transport by sea or air developed by those of European descent?
  2. Never read or write anything more than his name or his mark again. No Gutenberg, no mass media, no literacy for the common man, no public education.
  3. Defecate in a hole in the ground if his locality even dug latrines. No public sanitation.
  4. Clean his nether regions with his left hand, never cleaning it other than to visually remove the feces and for Islamic ritual absolution. No germ theory.
  5. Accidentally infect himself with E. coli. There was no germ theory or perceived reason to wash the hands with soap regularly.
  6. Die of dehydration due to dysentery. We’ve all played Oregon Trail. There were no Western medical discoveries such as antibiotics, Imodium, or Kaopectate.

Keep in mind that there is a civil war and mass starvation in Yemen right now. In a society characterized by low level tribal warfare and periodic famine, could Ali Habib scavenge up enough daily kilocalories to sustain himself? Habib selectively embraces the Western philosophy that says he deserves a free lunch. A mediocre lunch, but a free one for leeches like him. What would happen if he begged for a free lunch in a stratified pre-modern tribal society with a rather low life expectancy for adult males, who tended to meet a violent end in constant skirmishes? “Zug-zug, back to work!”

  1. Ooga booga says:

    Wait so why are Plato, Descartes, Kant, and Russel being taught in a school of Oriental and African Studies?

    1. Because it is a school in the West.

      1. Weltmacht says:

        The SOAS used to be around to prepare students for careers that would see them working in the Asian and African parts of the British Empire (civil servants, military officers, translators, etc.). They still got a standard university-level education as part of the deal.

        Frankly, I think the guy is right and they should go a step further: they should remove anything remotely Western from the school’s curriculum and see what happens. I would be delighted to see what a degree from the SOAS would be worth afterward.

      2. Ooga Booga says:

        Yes. A school in the west about African and Oriental Studies. Plato, Descartes, Kant, and Russel are not African or Oriental. So there’s no real reason why they should be taught. Frankly it’s a waste of funds, as well as the time of the students and teachers.

  2. Exhausted Existence says:

    Modern academia is a joke.

    1. Can you think of a single modern institution that is not wholly illegitimate, and “succeeding” only by cruising on what people in the past did?

      1. Exhausted Existence says:

        They even fail to emulate everything but the surface. To them only the social aspect matters really.

      2. Mike "Ride the Lightning" Pence says:

        Mass media, because it isn’t succeeding in any sense of the word.

    2. Morbideathscream says:

      Modern day mainstream society is a joke.

      1. Modern society is the product of decline plus technology.

  3. Rainer Weikusat says:

    Some people might legitimately object to Kant on the grounds that he’s part of a culture of “colonists” (OTOH, like all other people, he didn’t get to chose his parents, so, why would that be a valid value judgement?) but this would be the native Prussians living in this area prior to the Deutsche Orden christianizing it, certainly not someone from Yemen.

    Clue for a better argument: Ain’t no such thing as real brexit for as long as these migrant philosophers continue to be read in English[tm] universities.

  4. cornrose says:

    They’s philosophers dat ain’t white? Dang yo

  5. GGALLIN1776 says:

    The solution is spend that tuition on books, chances are even if you blow $100,000 on comic books, you’ll end up better educated than if you went to any university.
    Yes, even Yale has trash like this. Look at the profiles of the Bonesman from the past decade, most aren’t white & they’re all sjw retards. There’s your future world leaders abscent a revolution.

    1. Affirmative action was the death of quality. It’s nepotism of a legal variety.

      1. Morbideathscream says:

        They don’t want quality they want universal mediocrity. We can’t have quality, that’ll make the global elites feel threatened, we need blind obedience.

  6. Parasite says:

    Khazouk him. A fitting punishment for such blasphemy.

  7. Mike "Ride the Lightning" Pence says:

    This is one component of a concerted effort to erase Whites and White culture from existence.

    The longer Whites sit back and tolerate this cultural genocide, the more harsh the backlash will ultimately be. Nobody is doing this guy any favors by tolerating his bullshit. If Whites don’t get defensive now, our posterity will get offensive for us. And that could get very, very ugly.

    well kiddo if you kept up with world affairs then you would have known that it’s the cancerous, US backed, totalitarian regime of Saudi Arabia that is fueling the war in Yemen and starving its people. fuck Marxists and fuck anyone who denies the achievements of the white west, but you have no right to use the actions of one brainwashed leftist as means to ridicule an entire culture. yes, Arabs act like animals but there are more factors at work in determining the different aspects of life in a certain region than the teachings of some dogmatic creed that your willfully ignorant fans don’t care to learn about. by reading your ill researched blog, these fans will go on to make bold, vastly encompassing statements about world and history that are based on the most superficial of observations all while you, in your stubborn and emotively triumphant stand point, glee at how more people seem to be picking up on your ideology, thinking that they are finally waking up to the truth while in truth, they’re just venting their narcissistic frustrations through believing that observing a certain set of features in the mirror somehow makes them special.
    How about you actually picking up a book about Islam? how about you reading the Wikipedia article about Sufism or how about you learning about how your government is using tax payer money to buy ATGMs for radical Islamists so they could topple the secular government of Syria? How about you fucking off and leaving the realm of politics to those who are actually well versed in it?

    1. Did I say anything about Islam in this article other than about pre-modern hygiene more concerned with ritual purification than preventing the spread of disease? Has Death Metal Underground ever even mentioned Sufis? No. Learn to read and fuck off you Marxist.

      1. Hadez says:

        No you’re the one who needs to learn how to read, and more importantly, to know how to approach history and societies.
        look, religion is an expression of the social and economic expectation of the people of a certain region. ancient philosophers from every discipline had acknowledged this fact and recognized that religion serves certain communal purposes that the layman doesn’t necessarily have to be aware of even if he was to zealously practice all the ceremonies and patterns of behavior entailed in it. in other words: a religious scholar will tell you that washing your ass with water satisfies god, but this particular teaching wouldn’t have taken hold or became popular had it not been suited to serving some common good that was deeply ingrained in the subconsciousness of society. to put in even simpler terms, Muslims washed their asses with water because they wanted to prevent the spread of diseases even if they weren’t aware of that. the ancient man (and the modern Arab for that matter) was simple minded, there was no way of convincing him to do something unless he was threatened with divine punishment (or just mere divine dissatisfaction). in fact, Muslims are ordered to take showers after ejaculation and menstruation, so take that as you will.
        but back to the point, no you dumb faggot, you didn’t mention suffis nor explicitly trash islam, but you ridiculed the Islamic culture of the middle east and in the process, poisoned the minds of a couple of impressionable 20 somethings with whatever this superficial /pol/ dogma can be called. your observations were true, I’m not denying that, but again, you didn’t tackle the main root of the problem but rather childishly made fun of an entire might not hate dark skinned people and you might not be a patron of hate speech -i don’t know what goes on inside your head- but your under read and easily influenced fans will swallow up whatever you type and they’ll go around “removing kebab” on the internet afterward, thinking that by your reading your quasi intellectual ramblings, they had become highly enlightened champions of racial engineering.
        look people are dumb and politics is a dangerous business. I’m absolutely sure that you have the best of intentions, but you should know that indulging in promoting ideologies can backfire when done by people who aren’t qualified to do so. that doesn’t mean that you don’t have the right to express yourself, it just means that you have to keep in mind the extent of your ignorance while doing so (you’re a metal blogger for fuck’s sake). more specifically, this means that when tackling issues, you should try to emulate the people you quoted in the article above, which is to say that you should engage in a balanced and well thought argument to refute the things you disagree with instead of spewing passion driven mockeries.
        start reading more, no amount of Stefan molyneux videos will make you smarter. maybe start with the meaning of conservatism by Roger Scruton himself. and no you dumb fuck, I’m not a Marxist and shitting in a hole in the ground is comfortable as fuck.

        1. Death Metal Underground will continue to ridicule whatever the hell it wants while opposing censorship, hipster idiocy, multiculturalism, and diversity mandates. I do not read /pol/, I do not watch Molyneaux, and I do not care how sacred you hold your culture’s historical toilet hygiene practices. Ali Habib would have been mocked no matter where he came from. Communism has already been refuted by history and human nature.

          1. Hadez says:

            I’m not a muslim but I travelled around the middle east and I know for a fact that there’s a thing or two that western conservatives could learn from the people of that area.
            The guy from the article is a fucking moron, there’s no denying that, but you have to compare your approach to that of the two professionals you quoted. Scruton could’ve told Habib to go back to his sand nigger country (like you did), but he didn’t. instead, he challenged him to come up with a well rounded explanation of his thesis. Seldon on the other hand, stated the obvious, which is that history should be viewed as it is, not as we want it to be. In comparison, what you did is merely the riling up of a couple of half illiterate/pol/acks and enflamimg their tribalism with passion driven statements.
            Mock and ridicule whatever you want, but know that your fans distort and amplify everything you say inside their heads. When you describe the civil war in Yemen, they tend to think of Arabs as subhumans who are only good for killing each other while in reality, it’s their governments who are fueling the flame of the conflict in that country. When you talk about refugees raping european women, your fans think that Muslims have no higher aspiration in life than to ruin and defile the west while again, in reality, it’s their governments who are doing so by giving arms to jihadists who drive people out of their homelands into the arms of the Saudi sponsored mosques of Europe.
            Just back off from politics a bit, gather more knowledge, try coming up with your own view of the world and stop mimicking what other “right wing” internet people say. You don’t need me to tell you that people are idiots, so keep that in mind when you’re writing something. Just Think to yourself: would you like to see yourself contributing to the formation of a form of a tribalism that is not so different from that of politically correct sjws? Are your viewers really capable of critical thinking or are they just parroting whatever comments they see on Paul Joseph Watson’s videos? Are they open minded enough to read the works of marx before judging him? and if not, are they really different from patriarchy smashing blue haired collegians ?
            The world is fucked up and complex beyond belief and not even the brightest of scholars will ever make sense of it, much less some college students on a metal blog.

            1. I’ll do what I want. Most Muslim “refugees” have no aspirations beyond government handouts in Northern European societies. Most have no intention or will to assimilate or even function within European societies and should be deported, women and children too. If their country of origin will not take them, then the ocean will suffice. The Wahhabist mosques should be dismantled and the imams and congregants dealt with similarly.

                I think not giving Isis TOW missiles is a cheaper option, don’t you think?
