    Mizzou prof: Click was fired because of ‘proto-totalitarian’ ubiquity of recording devices

    UVA panel picks and chooses which groups deserve trigger warnings

    It’s good to see that they’re spending their time addressing the truly serious issues facing mankind.

    Students denounce KU admin for failing to denounce ‘Trump propaganda’

    This from the same group that deemed raising funds for a children’s cancer charity a “microaggression.” ‘Nuff said.

    They claim Sessions does not embody the university’s values. Apparently, neither does the committee that voted unanimously to invite him to give the Commencement address.

    Students protest Native American-made seal for not being Native American enough

    If UNM’s seal is racist for excluding Native Americans, then the Native American artist who designed it must have been suffering from a serious case of self-loathing.

    To clarify: if a seal includes a Native American, it’s racist. If it excludes Native Americans, it’s racist.

    It’s Schrodinger's seal: somehow racist and not racist at the same time.

    Impeachment threats: the trendy new way to silence conservatives on campus

    Tenn. lawmakers threaten to defund UT’s ‘horrifically disturbing’ Sex Week
