The PC Brigades Must be Stopped: Conservatives Aren’t the Only Voices Silenced by Academia’s Intellectual Orthodoxy

 

Political correctness and the “grievance studies” are anti-intellectualism dressed up as postmodern intellectualism.

The truth is the current “post-colonial,” racial, gender obsession (in some circles) is a religion for the dim. A salve for the bright, but not the brightest. 

I’m sorry if you don’t understand why The Great Books are great, or worse if you think the wisdom and knowledge of Western Civilization should be tossed aside in the name of reductionist politically correct dogma.

Metallica singer James Hetfield says he moved out of San Francisco because he was ‘sick of the elitist attitudes’ and ‘showing up with a deer on the bumper doesn’t fly in Marin County’

I’ve got my issues with Metallica, but on the whole I like them. Their music was definitely some of the most interesting to come out of the 1980s. And I always respected the kids in the black Metallica shirts who could shred on guitar. It wasn’t my style but I always respected them. I’ve always respected James Hetfield too.

Orange Coast College Student Threatened With Expulsion After Recording Professor’s Anti-Trump Tirade

Look, even many of the people who voted for Trump have some beefs with Trump. I hear from these folks regularly. But the reaction from some other folks, particularly those who appear to be receptive to the politically correct societal critique, those who thought our society was going to be defined by the sociology departments of this country, to Trump has been off the charts.

I was listening to NPR yesterday and the endless complaining about Trump was remarkable.

More Religion of Grievance: Professor who tweeted against PC culture is out at NYU

Mao’s Red Guard was made up of “social justice warriors” too.

The “PC gestapo” is in full effect on college campuses today.

Political correctness is not about civility. It is not about being polite. (People who don’t know better will argue that PC is about being polite, and so will people who absolutely do know better. The former are just ignorant. The latter devious.) It is about control. It is about speech control and thought control.

Watch Leftist Students Say Science Is Racist and Should Be Abolished (VIDEO)

This is where political correctness (a term coined by Marx) which is a type of religion, has taken us.

Science is racist. Just what South Africa needs, people who think witchcraft (which is indigenous) is equivalent (superior?) to the scientific method. Why? Because science is “Eurocentric.”

This kind of thinking ought to work out great for the country.

But the smug ignorance displayed by the woman in the attached video is the same I see displayed by some Americans on the “Left”

Truly open social media? New site with momentum, GAB

We post this for our readers’ information. Whether GAB takes off is an open question. (To say the least.) Most social media alternatives have a hard time carving out a space for themselves these days. But GAB says that it will truly be a censorship free platform. In that case it’s at least worth checking out.

Alumni Strike: Fed up with political correctness alumni across the country aren’t giving anymore

I live in a college town built around one of the greatest universities in the world, and I have heard about this growing phenomena from multiple sources recently. Alumni are fed up with “safe spaces” and the anti-intellectual political correctness guards objecting to every “microagression” they can conjure in their heads.

These alumni have stopped writing checks. Why should they fund scholarships and pay for facilities for people who are clearly disconnected from reality? Why should alumni support people who must be coddled and whose egos must be massaged?

Triggered: MSNBC Warns Sensitive Viewers Before Showing Anti-Hillary Buttons

As we mentioned in an earlier post, there seems to be a part of this country which has legitimately lost it. A significant part. How do these people even function in society?

This is not a joke. How do they get by from day to day? How do these people get through life?
