- The headlines we were tempted to run, and the commentary we couldn’t.
It should be easy for SJW students to prove they were “defrauded or deceived” by their university with a mere IQ test.
The dean allegedly was suggesting an autobiographical book, whose title consisted solely of the n-word, written by a Civil Rights leader, and wasn’t using the n-word as a slur. But context is a rather pesky thing; it’s so much easier to just brand people “racist.”
Clearly, Ben Shapiro was a “controversial speaker” who was engaging in “offensive speech,” if you interpret the definitions of those terms precisely the same way we do. Oh, you don’t know how we interpret them? Oh, terms have qualitative, subjective, wondrously malleable definitions? How convenient.
Freshmen at Amherst get to learn about how whites benefit from institutionalized racism during the mandatory two-hour movie break. We wonder if they plan to acknowledge the privilege of watching a movie in air conditioning while others labor in the hot sun to produce their organic food products.
Yup, Dr. Peter Wood and the NAS aren’t progressive hacks. Shocked by the sanity of the opinions presented?
The dining hall employee who smashed a priceless work of art got rehired and won’t become a felon for showering broken glass on a pedestrian on the other side of the window. Can’t you see it now? A future in which universities give their employees promotions and bonus pay for destroying campus monuments to the non-politically correct past.
It sure would be ironic if the progressive left, which sorts identity groups into a victim hierarchy, didn’t really care about slights against Jews. It would be ironic if liberals were apathetic toward the very group that was the most explicitly targeted by one of the most illiberal regimes in history. For that matter, nowadays, liberals also aren’t very...liberal.
If anyone has ever stereotyped you...you’ve been microaggressed.
It’s mentioned that students will “explore police subculture” in their criminal and social justice courses. Presumably, this requires binge-watching The Wire and NYPD Blue.
The band apparently wants a “philosophical claim” over the song used by Trump. Sources say that the left will add this claim to its “philosophical claims” over reason, counter-terrorism, and the best interest of oppressed classes. These same sources also report that it may be difficult for ordinary—sane—individuals to recognize these claims because they are, to be blunt, nonexistent.
Administrators thought they could trick everyone by renaming the Bias Response Team to the Bias Education and Response Team (BERT). It’s a kinder, gentler progressivism. BERT will be staffed by Endangered Rhetoric Non-Intervention Experts (ERNIE).
Trump wants to Make Mississippi Great Again by flying the state flag because “there’s nothing wrong with some tradition.” Oh, how public colleges and students there disagree. The flag is considered too offensive to even be brought on campus. Carpetbaggers and scalawags abound.
Our existence is kind of proof that there is an indoctrination problem, you know.
Campus Reform has received word that, in the past 24 hours, the Pulitzer winner’s “dangerous rhetoric” has been spotted jumping off of computer screens and book pages worldwide, proceeding to quite physically colonize and oppress women, minorities, etc.
Cereal is triggered by the tendency of some of hir partakers to eat hir in a space void of diversity and multiculturalism. Namely, hir wants you to put some milk in the bowl, darn it.
Remember, women are either completely helpless before men or entirely independent and unintimidated by them. Which is true at the moment depends on which is more politically useful.
Annoyingly, there’s no real way to make a pun off this course’s name.
If the Democrat straight white male fails, vote for the Republican version...sexists.
Campus Reform felt much like a child stumbling upon holographic Charizard, Lugia, and Dark Typhlosion Pokemon cards when encountering this comprehensive list of gender pronouns, including the ultra-rare ae, e/ey, ve, and per.
It’s not patent fear-mongering if it stems from compassion, benevolence, and empathy.
They planned to obtain as many of the free tickets as possible and then no-show. When you think about it, it’s not that much different from a DNC-sponsored protest.
But no, it’s only Trump who speaks at a fifth-grade level.
So this writer is chastising Bowdoin for having food that’s too good, claiming that they could put more money toward scholarships. Napoleon said that an army marches on its stomach, and a student body takes exams on theirs as well. If Bowdoin says they can afford it, let them eat cake.
UT-San Antonio has decided that self defense is a non-issue in faculty offices, residence halls, housing units, counseling and health offices, child care facilities, sporting venues, and the food court. There’s no need to protect yourself with a gun on campus, the police are only minutes away!
Why exactly is the left so doggone awful with cyber-security?
We’ve come a long way since Shakespeare, baby.
College liberals who felt the Bern this election cycle will likely disagree with the position of these old, white men.They think that higher education is hardly the “disaster area” that journalists and politicians say it is.
