As the totalitarian moonbattery that holds sway on college campuses delves ever deeper into self-parody, the word “history” may be abolished:
Students at Western Washington University have reached a turning point in their campus’s hxstory. (For one thing, they’re now spelling it with an X—more on that later.) Activists are demanding the creation of a new college dedicated to social justice activism, a student committee to police offensive speech, and culturally segregated living arrangements at the school, which is in Bellingham, up in the very northwest corner of the state. …
WWU’s student-activist community—the frightening-sounding Assembly for Power and Liberation—made their demands public last week. …
The most substantial of the activists’ demands is a call for a new college that would essentially train students to become social justice warriors (a term often applied derogatorily by critics of leftism that nevertheless seems appropriate here). WWU must meet the needs of this new “College of Power and Liberation” by immediately hiring 10 faculty members—subject to the approval of student-activists. Finding the money to do all this is solely the responsibility of WWU’s administration, “whose accountability to students should be expressed through their fervent advocacy for students’ needs at both the local and state levels,” according to the activists, who want an extra $50,000 to throw a kick-off party for the new college. Another $45,000 will go toward paying students to do “de-colonial work on campus,” whatever that means.
Presumably it would have something to do with the eradication of “white privilege” — i.e., punishing people for being members of the majority population.
Activists have also demanded the creation of an Office for Social Transformation, which would employ 15 students—young Robespierres in training—for the purposes of monitoring “racist, anti-black, transphobic, cissexist, misogynistic, ableist, homophobic, Islamophobic, and otherwise oppressive behavior on campus.” (Anti-Semitism, one notes, is curiously omitted.) These students will be granted terrifying powers to discipline faculty members who commit microaggressions. Professors—even tenured professors—can and will be placed under investigation if they are accused of maintaining insufficiently safe spaces within their classrooms.
Liberal professors helped create this Frankenstein monster. Too bad they didn’t design it with a kill switch.
The third serious demand is for the creation of new residence halls geared around specific cultural identities.
Today’s lesson, compliments of WWU: multiculturalism = balkanization (except in Europe, where multiculturalism = Muslim conquest).
It’s not as if WWU isn’t already plenty moonbatty:
Keep in mind that WWU is already an extremely liberal campus with a number of social justice-oriented activities: it has a department of Education and Social Justice, a Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies program, a Queer Resource Center, a Social Issues Resource Center, and an Ethnic Student Center.
But with militant moonbats, too much is never enough.
The list of demands ends with a lengthy denunciation of WWU’s marginalization of “hxstorically oppressed students.”
The “his” in “history” is sexist, thus the X.
These kooks are hilarious — right up until they achieve actual power, which they have already been doing.
