Moonbattery Corrupts Even Engineering

Will we still have bridges and skyscrapers when liberal utopia is achieved? I doubt it:

Engineering education has been infiltrated by a “phalanx of social justice warriors” who are steadily corrupting the field, according to a Michigan State University professor.

“They have sought out the soft underbelly of engineering, where phrases such as ‘diversity’ and ‘different perspectives’ and ‘racial gaps’ and ‘unfairness’ and ‘unequal outcomes’ make up the daily vocabulary,” asserts Mechanical Engineering professor Indrek Wichman in an essay published Wednesday by the James G. Martin Center.

“Instead of calculating engine horsepower or microchip power/size ratios or aerodynamic lift and drag, the engineering educationists focus on group representation, hurt feelings, and ‘microaggressions’ in the profession,” Wichman adds.

According to Wichman,

schools increasingly focus on concepts that are incompatible with the actual discipline, such as “empowering” students and “reimagining” engineering as a more “socially connected” field of study.

As an example of how much corrosion moonbattery has already caused, Wichman points to Donna Riley. From her faculty page at Smith College:

I seek to revise engineering curricula to be relevant to a fuller range of student experiences and career destinations, integrating concerns related to public policy, professional ethics and social responsibility; de-centering Western civilization; and uncovering contributions of women and other underrepresented groups.

The point of engineering is no longer to build, but to destroy — or as Riley puts it, to de-center.

Purdue University has earned P.C. brownie points by recruiting this deranged moonbat to head its School of Engineering Education.

If shouting leftist slogans doesn’t make the crops grow in starving Zimbabwe (formerly Rhodesia, the Breadbasket of Africa), it probably will not prevent bridges from collapsing in the coming USSA.

    “de-centering Western civilization”

    because modern engineering is holding back Africans and Arabs and South Americans from leading the world in engineering marvels

    or something

    So now sending your kids to schools that actually teach useful careers is on the agenda. These leftists are relentless their drive to ruin us.

    Donna Riley is quite the chef. I’ve never seen such a tasty word salad!

    Libtards have nothing to do but whine about imagined wrongs. Thankfully they breed fewer offspring than conservatives. Society will ultimately be rid of them.

    Some of the marvels of this “new and enlightened” approach to engineering that we can no doubt look forward to:

    without opposition, yeah, they are out to destroy the country and everything that is holy.

    No mater what country, Europe is fill of dangerous virtue signaling Moonbats.

    It is so unfair that some people know how to actually build things.

    Which, of course, was the fault specifically of Donald Trump and white men in general.

    Well, it’s pretty clear we can write off any further tech advances for a couple of generations now. How sad. If AGW were true, we wouldn’t be able to do anything about it with this idiotic mindset.
