At this point we could probably use a second blog to do nothing but stories about college campuses and the activities of the special snowflakes who are going to create safe space homes for themselves there. The story coming out of Vanderbilt this week might have been shocking in years past, but by now it’s just a footnote to the daily rap sheet. The students at this esteemed university, having seen the “success” of their fellow seekers of knowledge at Mizzou, are looking to give the boot to one of their professors. Her crime? Penning an editorial many months ago suggesting that we might be having a problem with Islam. (TaxProf)
Interesting that Jazz posted this mere hours before the atrocity in Paris happened. Professor Swain is under attack for a column asking “What would it take to make us admit we were wrong about Islam? What horrendous attack would finally convince us that Islam is not like other religions in the United States, that it poses an absolute danger to us and our children unless it is monitored better than it has been under the Obama administration?”
Was yesterday’s attack that horrendous attack? I hate to say it, but I’m of the opinion that Comrade Arthur is correct. There will be outrage and brave statements of “merciless” war. But nothing will change.
We’re fourteen short years removed from the horror of 9/11, and the University of Minnesota student government has already decided that merely recognizing that attack has the mere possibility of causing badthink about brown people, and thus cannot be permitted.
