The twin massacres in Paris
were, according to the perpetrators themselves, payback for blasphemy. In other
words, Islamists believe in the“right not to be offended.” If that sounds
familiar, maybe it’s because the American left believes exactly the same thing.
The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education’s (FIRE) latest report reveals that of the 437
colleges and universities they surveyed, more than 55 percent maintain what
FIRE refers to as “red light” restrictions on free speech. In 2012, FIRE
president Greg Lukianoff offered
examples of those “speech codes,” noting that they may consist of restricting
speech that“feels offensive,” “demeaning,” that which will “discredit the
student body” or any language deemed to be “abusive, indecent, profane or
And that’s just a small
sampling of the official stances taken by colleges themselves. As revealed
by Healther Mac Donald, "microaggressions,“ a laughably pathetic concept defined
as "a form of unintended discrimination…depicted by the use of known
social norms of behavior and/or expression that, while without conscious choice
of the user, has the same effect as conscious, intended discrimination,” has
become entrenched on college campuses as well. Thus one no longer has to make a
conscious effort to offend. As long as someone else feels offended, it is more
than enough to engender criticism, or as Mac Donald chronicles, the sacking of
a 79-year-old UCLA college professor for creating “a toxic, unsafe and
intellectually stifling environment at its current worse (sic)” in his
classroom – according to a “Day of Action Statement” written by “Scholars of

- Would someone tell my why we fund these
institutions? They destroy us with our own values, while adopting whatever

national moral structure based on Judaic/Christian values and principles, which
they believe is the foundational structure to capitalism. And for those who've spent any time studying Nazi philosophy under Hitler, you will recognize this as a common theme.
Socialist are always
socialist, and socialists are always clueless! Clever at minipulating the public but failures at history.
As a result there’s one value they fail to
embrace. What if they were cut loose from government grant money and student
loans - how long would they survive if
they were forced to be for profit institutions based on their performance? I
really do think it's time they had the opportunity to experience the real world
versus their hypocritical social tinkering that portends to deliver the world
into a mystical utopia. The way they
act demonstrates a couple of things.
One, they must have never in their lives read a history book, or they
refused to believe what they read. Or, they
have consciously adopted a Procrustean solution, where–in they only read those
books that fit their preconceived views.
Either way, they’re dumb as dirt and it’s time they were cut loose from
the public’s purse strings.
