Simply Criticize Jill Biden’s Doctorate
Biden’s is an EdD, not a PhD. The former is a professional degree aimed at improving practice as a professional educator, often a school district superintendent.
It bears little resemblance to the academic -- not professional-- research degree that is the PhD, which often leads to being a university professor.
Both degrees have a worthy place but should not be seen as equal in academic rigor or accomplishment.
I love Janice! The first two individuals I started following online years ago were Janice Fiamengo and Colin Flaherty. Unfortunately, Colin is no longer with us, but he told the truth just like Janice.
Doc Fiamengo is performing a national house call and lancing the festering boils of feminism and treating the accompanying hysteria.
Any PHD who insists on being addressed as Dr. is a narcissist, in my experience. Good article.
I've often been curious at the media's insistence on recognizing certain PhD-holders but not others. There does seem to be a stronger requirement to identify women as "Dr." if they have earned doctorates: Jill Biden, Madeleine Albright, and Condoleeza Rice come to mind. I don't recall ever seeing the press refer to Ben Bernanke, David Petraeus or other male PhDs as Doctor. Henry Kissinger might be the only exception.
While I can't imagine why anyone would argue that someone who holds a doctoral degree from an accredited program should not be entitled to use their title, it is unfortunate that the academy has not ensured a consistent level of rigor across degree programs and from one institution to another. Unfortunately, we seem to be moving in the wrong direction on this issue with an increasing number of programs that confer degrees based on work that lacks merit. It's understandable that the PhD is losing credibility in some people's eyes, and of course, it's quite predictable that feminism would rush to add this skepticism to the long list of phenomena it foolishly characterizes as misogyny.
“Regardless, it certainly fails to justify the praise bestowed on Biden by her many defenders, including former First Lady Michelle Obama, who called Biden “a brilliant woman who has distinguished herself in her profession.””
Apparently, Michelle’s Princeton Senior thesis is a train wreck. Maybe Doc Biden’s is brilliant by comparison.
Satire in action. No need to invent anything. This is hilarious. At the two universities I attended, the education department was the laughingstock. When I was a TA at McGill English, I had three edumecation students approach me after class one day and say, "Excuse me? But we're from Educashuuun?" With that quizzical lilt. "So like we don't really have to know all this?" This was after the first or second class. I couldn't help but point out the irony of their position. So we're talking dodos, and this was McGill. I also had a friend back in the 90s who wrote papers for college and unibin students tell me that most of his work came from education students. He even wrote a PhD paper for someone. Given what we know about celebs paying their way through, who knows if Dr. Jill even wrote the paper. Nowadays, you can just get ChatGPT to do it while you watch Bosch.
I bet the reason this is the worst thesis you’ve ever read is because you haven’t read Michelle Robinson’s.
I remember reading a high school exit exam from 1895 and feeling very close to being mentally retarded. Reading this article about Jill Biden makes me feel very close to being Albert Einstein.
I have to admit to being rather ignorant of the political goings on in North America. However the desperation to apply superlatives to relatively minor achievements from women is familiar enough. I noticed that "misogyny" was applied in this case and there is here in the UK a growing tendency for "misogyny" to mean what "sexism" meant until recently and "chauvinism" used to mean. In one case "the public" continuing to use the term "fireman" being misogyny , rather than the official term "firefighter". Probably because despite 30 years of initiatives there are almost no firewomen seen, apart from in dramas. How this was an indication "the pubic" had a deep seated hatred of women I don't now. And it is very noticeable that female politicians get a very easy ride here too.
Thanks Janice. That was quite a read.
Now I understand why Dr Biden wears upholstery fabric!
"is promptly beaten into the dust for his temerity"
I believe that if the linguistic use of the word "Misogyny" is examined, it will be found that the word is often used to shut down discussions, or examination of issues that need to be examined.
It is a sticky label trying to portray the people who the label is stuck as not worth listening to or even reading.
It is about guilt tripping and shaming. All that tactics that were used against the WSJ.
I truly hope that Tucker Carlson reads this and interviews you. This is excellent! I thought the same years ago but did not have the patience to wade through Biden's sub-par thesis. I found it online and knew it was laughable from the title, but left it at that. Thank you for subjecting yourself to that text on our behalf. Also, I would agree with Epstein's argument. I have a humanities Ph.D. (from a far more distinguished institution than Biden's) but don't presume to give myself the title "Dr." It's usually considered pretentious to do so. I used to work for a politician who signed his letters "Dr. ___" and to be honest I was embarrassed for him. I recall a local newspaper mocking him for that. The partisan attack on Epstein is appalling but unsurprising in this day and age. It's typical of Leftists to misuse race and gender in this way. Thank you for setting the record straight. For now, those deemed guilty by the hivemind are publicly shamed, and some even fired, but I fear a time when running afoul of Big Brother will result in more murderous consequences by the state, as in China. The only way to prevent this, I believe, is for more and more people of good conscience to speak out against this nonsense. Conservatives can no longer afford to be silent. It won't just go away by itself. We went from being a silent majority to a silenced minority. Bad thinking and abuses of power have to be challenged, as you are doing. I truly appreciate all your videos and writings.
I am absolutely in awe of you at this moment.
I believe Jill penned a (fictional?) children's picture book, about a young Joe Biden. Young Joe was picked on for being slow, but he showed them!
In real life, Jill sat down with Joe and handled the tougher questions from reporters.
I thought Mrs Biden was known to wags as 'Nurse Jill'.
