Once again the leftist indoctrination machine known as higher education has traditional American values in it’s crosshairs.
Rutgers Univerisity’s “Bias Prevention & Education Committee” (this actually exists), published a guide to avoid “bias incidents” on campus. What are “bias incidents” you may ask? Allow them to explain:
“Bias Acts Are: Verbal, written, physical, psychological acts that threaten or harm a person or group on the basis of race, religion, color, sex, age, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, national origin, ancestry, disability, marital status, civil union status, domestic partnership status, atypical heredity or cellular blood trait, military service or veteran status”
This may seem reasonable at first, but you have to remember that pretty much every “hate crime” that has happened on college campuses in the past few years has been hoax and that these people get offended at the drop of a hat. Any criticism of the gay/tranny agenda, abortion, Islam or immigration will be probably labelled as a “bias act” all while the campus marxists will be free to call for deaths of men, white people, america and western civilization. This could not be more apparent as the guide actually instructs students to “Join activities, programs, courses, and practices that promote diversity and social justice.” Yeah, the university system totally isn’t controlled by leftists with an agenda.
But perhaps the scariest part of the shitfest is that guide opens up saying, “There is no such thing as ‘free’ speech. All speech has a cost and consequences.” It is true that all speech has some effect, but these people are implying that people should not be allowed to say something just because some tiny minority may be offended by it. They want to live in a circlejerk in which they are never challenged.
