PC Deniers Are Flat-Earthers: Part 9 - Academia's Intolerance


From USA Today:
Donald Trump’s substantial victory, when most progressives expected a Hillary Clinton landslide, came as a shock to many. . . .The response to the shock has been to turn campuses into kindergarten. The University of Michigan Law School announced a ”post-election self-care” event with “food" and "play,” including “coloring sheets, play dough (sic), positive card-making, Legos and bubbles with your fellow law students.” (Embarrassed by the attention, UM Law scrubbed the announcement from its website, perhaps concerned that people would wonder whether its graduates would require Legos and bubbles in the event of stressful litigation.)
And . . .
Trump is leading the state of Michigan, so there are probably quite a few on campus — aren’t really included in acceptable campus culture. It’s not promoting diversity; it’s enforcing uniformity. It’s not promoting inclusion; it’s practicing exclusion.  And though it pretends to be about nurturing, it’s actually about being mean to those who don’t fall in the nurtured class.
Yet we still have the deniers. Amazing. Read the complete piece here, written by a University professor.

Some of those PC deniers have been very mute as of late even to the point of withdrawing some of their whiney posts.........very odd behavior for folks who set them selfs apart from the average American citizen.
