OC on Pajamas TV

Yesterday I had the pleasure of being on Pajamas TV, part of Pajamas Media, for a discussion of conservatism on college campuses. View the whole megillah here. (Sorry, no embedding.) OC alum Owen Rounds is the producer over at Pajamas TV, in case you’re wondering how a schlub like me pulled that off.

P.S. You can see the top of Sudsy’s head (literally, the frothy carbonation) peeking into the shot as well.

  1. Herman says:

    This only counts if white is not a color. “Persons of color” simply means everyone. Everyone except ‘white’ people. How is this not racist?

  2. CJ Ciaramella says:

    O RLY?

  3. program leader says:

    please stop attacking programs

  4. Irish Blood says:

    Does rosacea count?

  5. Stachelrodt says:

    um yes i knew that the A in LGBTQA is for alliance. I reread my post to make sure i didn’t misspeak and i never explicitly said what any of the letters stand for. My only guess is that you thought that i was saying the A meant asexual but I put asexuals in my HHNDBAA. Yes I am a jackass but I’m no fool. if you go to and scroll down to OMAS you’ll see that what i did was simply copy/pasted and then if you go to their website at they say that

    “Expertise provided by the Office of Multicultural Academic Support advising staff enhances the college life for self identified students of color by providing tools to make a difference in their college career.”

    So please my apologies for believing what they write about themselves. I suppose you could have someone who was Caucasian self identify themself as a person of color and get support, but that seems unlikely. I mean when has anyone every heard of some white person who thinks that they are a person of color?

  6. Jackson says:

    Stachelrodt, the A in LGBTQA stands for alliance, you jackass.

    Also, OMAS welcomes all students but with a focus of students of color. Figure out your facts, you fool.

    Though, I agree with you on one issue: there should be a service provided for all students who are struggling with their studies and adapting to student life that goes beyond the services of Student Life, the Health Center, ALS, etc. It’s very hard for students who need the one-on-one teaching environment who cannot afford their own private tutor. Athletes get this, why can’t non-athletes? And we all know how Oregon Hall is a fuckhole for anyone without an accounting degree trying to figure out their financial aid.

    And on a final note, the LGBTQA is funded by students, not pets, so bestiality should be excluded (until the IFee is charged to whiskers).

    I fee for diversity:

    I see from your comment that you are a despicable waste of humanity and I know that my words will have no effect on your twisted and hateful world view.

    Nonetheless, I will make an attempt:

    The number one barrier to college attendance for low-income, first generation students (read minorities) is the expense.

    Every dollar that you increase the cost of attendance prevents more disadvantaged students from attending (search for “barriers to college” if you want want some empirical evidence).

    Of course it isn’t really about diversity. It’s really about getting your cut.

  9. Joe the Lieberman says:

    Do what’s in your heart, they can’t punish you for what you did, even if that was having sex with the enemy and spitting on your own party’s poster child.

    I may caucus with the Democrats, but I’ve always been a proponent of lower taxes, and mavericks, like your Senator Jones (now that’s a true maverick). Jones, hit me up this spring, John and I will come campaign for you.

  10. Ossie says:

    Why is there still not a Caucasian Student Union? Do white people not coun’t anymore?

  11. Chris says:

    I thought poor people just weren’t working hard enough if they couldn’t get into college? That’s the popular argument, no? This is America where everyone can become everything…if you only work hard enough and stop being a poor, lazy slouch?

  12. I fee for diversity says:

    program seeks to encourage diversity. Sure I might run a $4,000 budget, but as long as I can have my cultural night and feed my friends with the i fee, then i dont care if my cousin in northeast Portland can come to Oregon because she can’t afford it. I just tell her to write a story in her scholarship essay about being a minority and she gets to come. Less money for you rich white kids stealing our financial support. So yes, up the I fee for programs, because us poor underprivileged students will be able to pay it with our scholarships.

  13. Gsim says:

    Program leader:

    You don’t even feel dirty at all do you?

    I have a hard time imagining what it must be like to be such a money grubbing whore.

    I hope you choke on your stipend check/bloated budget hypocrisy.

    Every dollar you steal from the students of UO (for adminstrating whatever worthless student group you “run”) is a dollar preventing a poor person from going to college.

  14. ASUO Con Court says:

    This Court should not hold itself out as a Sword
    of Damocles, with the power to strike down a politician
    for any transgression no matter how long has passed
    between the time of transgression and the complaint

  15. ASUO Senator says:

    Someone keeps posting from the Senate computer… stop please.

  16. Program leader says:

    The asuo senate board room is a white space that is anti-programs. Carina and Diego promised student programs more stipend if their campaign wins this Spring and they receive our vote. Keep fighting for us Lidoto with your curse word. Shatter that glass ceiling!

  17. ASUO History says:

    No way can Miller be as bad as Hamilton. Her slime is still stinking up suite 4 through the stooges she got elected with free pizza and bought votes. I hear she’s now in DC – probably what started this whole economic mess. Well good riddance I say.

    ASUO insider is Johnny delasha

  18. ASUO History says:

    ASUO Insider: “I suppose she has been planning for her ASUO presidency and neglecting her duties. Some leader

  19. ASUO Insider says:

    Carina Miller is in non-fulfillment of duties at this point. She doesn’t hold regular office hours, she has arrived late to almost every senate meeting ( she cannot have 4 tardies) and she has attended only 2 pfc meetings all term. I suppose she has been planning for her ASUO presidency and neglecting her duties. Some leader…

  20. ASUO VP says:

    Take it from me, the VP does nothing, so don’t assume Fox, Nix, or Ella’s VP will be doing anything substantial.

  21. Program Leader says:

    Disgusting…. can you imagine Carina Miller as the ASUO President? Good luck… she will be receiving a grievance before she can post those office hours….. I can’t believe anyone thinks they are a friend….

  22. Jackson says:

    I am so glad that the Kiefer Kia Princess is invested in ASUO politics. She brings up a great point: Carina Miller will bring fabulous diversity to the Executive. I suggest she adopt someone as diverse as last year’s Senate Personality of the Year, Diego Hernandez, as her VP. That is, assuming the vetting process doesn’t uncover something embarrassing…

    On another note, i have found out more information on the Ella Barrett run for presidency. She will be facing tough competition by longtime ally, Sun-Owen who is rumored to also run this year with her future VP, Allison Fox. Expect a dirty primary season. And while these fantastically horrid tickets are promising lies (leaky roofs, syllabi, anyone?), we’ll find Jones rising to power with Nix at her side. What a shit race…

    Vote diversity, vote Miller.

  23. Kifer Kia Princess says:

    doesn’t the commentator bring great student groups to campus? I only hope that your budget for speakers is increased by $550 when Carina Miller, God Willing, is out righteous ASUO president. Then you can bring the speakers that Muhammad, Peace Be Upon Him, wishes to spread his word here. WE NEED DIVERSITY!!

  24. Vincent says:

    Aww. Life is so tough when you’re padding your resume — err, making campus the “diverse” place you want it to be…

  25. ASUO Insider says:

    That comment is truly offensive for those in the student programs who work hard to bring issues of diversity to the forefront of students minds. When calling government inefficient, you are forgetting all of the amazing speakers and events that are brought to campus by student programs. Programs are the most efficient part of this campus and make the campus the diverse place that we see (or hope to see soon). Why is the commentator always bad mouthing students, government and whatever when they take money from the ASUO.

    Take a step in my shoes, and see the world through a different lens…

  26. Andy says:

    “As conservatives we belive government is corrupt and inefficient at all levels” Sweet man!!

  27. boobie says:

    You hold up under persecution with amazing resilience CJ. But looks like you harshed the martyrdom high for your… peers I guess.

    University of OreGONE, really?

  28. T says:

    I know. I saw that too. SCANDAL!

  29. Timothy says:

    T – dude, check this. ZOMG! No punishment for underage drinking and moving some rocks! I’d best get out my dapper top-hat and go deal with this hooligan forthwith!

  30. Timothy says:

    I thought that was the other Charles Johnson for a second, you know, the one with the small emerald pigskins.

  31. T says:

    I loved your review of Chinese Democracy in The Onion AV Club, and continue to really appreciate your Andy Kaufman-like dedication to this earnest, conservative character known as “Charles Johnson.”

    I liked you better with the beard, though.

  32. Hey, it was good to see you the other day, CJ. Cheers from the Claremont Conservative!

  33. Michelle Haley says:

    CJ, I don’t know which is worse: the fact that they couldn’t hide their social judgment of you well, or the fact that the host takes a production on something with the word “pajamas” in it so seriously. Either way, Sudsy’s head, and your comments were the best part of the whole show.

  34. Olly says:

    Tyler: ” “The communists and the socialists have come out of the woodwork and gotten a lot more play.

  35. Gsim says:

    That kid that was wearing a tie is a goon.

    I’m pretty sure I could kick his ass. I definitely could if I had a good drunk on.

  36. Ossie says:

    Why the fuck can’t Easterners pronounce Oregon correctly?

    Big Red money quote: “It’s basically easier to be an openly gay student … than a conservative.”

    The studio panel caught themselves halfway through, but they were really playing the b.s. victim

  37. Token White Boy says:

    If that freak with the speech impediment is the type of student we send overseas, it’s no wonder that the rest of the world doesn’t like Americans. Anyone else think it’s a little freaky that he never looks directly at the camera? Maybe he’s so used to having conversations with people who aren’t really there that he doesn’t even realize he’s talking to real people this time.

  38. T says:

    Do you mean Anthony Robbins dude with the suspect facial hair, Tim? I would also classify him as Ben Affleck-esque, so that’s a good call.

  39. Timothy says:

    What’s up with that Ben Affleck looking motherfucker? Also, that red-headed guy needs to learn that when one is not wearing a tie, one does not button the top button. I bet he wears a belt AND suspenders.

  40. T says:

    My God, that red-haired kid looks like a young, shrunken-headed Chuck Klosterman. The guy next to him resembles Anthony Robbins’ evil twin. The guy after CJ looks like the world’s biggest douchenozzle (“The communists and the socialists have come out of the woodwork and gotten a lot more play.” Huh! What the fuck does that even mean?), and the red-shirted dude at the end apparently washes his hair with Crisco.

    Punchable faces all around.

    No offense, CJ, ’cause you obviously came across as the most normal. But these kids seem very, very pathetic.

  41. Vincent says:

    I don’t know about the other dudes, but I talked for awhile with Charles Johnson (the red-haired guy in the studio) at the CN Editor’s Conference, and he seemed like a pretty stand-up sort of fellow. I sort of agree with Scott, though. The host especially seemed like he wasn’t especially interested in what CJ was saying.

  42. Chris says:

    Either way….good show.

  43. CJ Ciaramella says:

    I thought they liked me, but then again, I’m completely oblivious to such things.

  44. Chris says:

    Yeah, they did seem uppity. The kind of conservatives who would turn down the sudsy t-shirt and beer drinking invite at a conference of conservative minds.

  45. Scott says:

    edit: unnerving*, There were several

  46. Scott says:

    I’m not gonna lie, I watched this interview this morning and again this evening to get some perspective on it and CJ I got the impression those guys did not like you or your opinions.

    They were there to change the world and republicans but you seemed to be unnerve them. There several times that after you spoke the look of condescension on their faces towards you was so blatant.

    Especially the host and that Ben Judge kid (who by the way came across as a giant tool).
