Anti-KKK Artwork Sanctimoniously Banned for Reminding Morons of the KKK

Rule by hysterical, ideologically deranged mob was not much fun during the Salem Witch Trials or the French Reign of Terror. The same goes for the contemporary American college campus, where the mob is in full fury over anti-KKK artwork because it reminds them of the KKK:

University of Iowa (UI) students, faculty, and administrators are speaking out in support of the censorship of a statue created and displayed on campus by visiting professor Serhat Tanyolacar that they say constitutes “hate speech.” Tanyolacar’s piece comprised a seven foot tall sculpture of a Ku Klux Klan member whose robes are crafted from newspaper articles about racial violence. Many members of the UI community, however, ignored the intended anti-racist message of the piece and instead demanded that the university take action against what they perceive as a racist display—and the university is complying.

That’s how desperate collegiate liberals are to find something politically incorrect to ban.

Tanyolacar erected the statue last week on an area of campus called the Pentacrest with hopes to “facilitate a dialogue with a community on a college campus,” responding to the controversy over the shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri. But students judged the piece to be racist and offensive, and within hours, university police instructed Tanyolacar to take his piece down.

Tanyolackey must have already known that on a college campus, to “facilitate a dialogue” means to scream leftist dogma — which is exactly what his “artwork” does. No other communication is allowed. But he was likely surprised to discover that not even his inflammatory and cartoonishly obvious left-wing propaganda is safe from liberal censorship in a realm where everything must be dumbed down to the comprehension level of students who are there to fulfill quotas and take remedial reading classes.

Like all totalitarian movements, political correctness has predictably degenerated into eating its own. It has also degenerated into self-parody:

Echoing the sentiment of a growing group of “Hawkeyes” who have voiced concern, if not outrage, over a Ku Klux Klan effigy that sat for nearly four hours Friday on the University of Iowa Pentacrest, President Sally Mason has called the campus response “not adequate.”

“Nor did that response occur soon enough,” Mason said in a message sent Sunday to the university community. “For failing to meet our goal of providing a respectful, all-inclusive, educational environment, the university apologizes.”

Four whole hours passed before educrats censored the inadvertent thought crime. Not to worry, they will make amends by doubling down on authoritarian moonbattery.

Mason … said in her message that she plans to meet with concerned students Wednesday to “prepare a detailed plan of action” that will include input from those affected by the incident. The plan will look at how the university can “better meet its responsibility to ensure that all students, faculty, staff, and visitors are respected and safe.”

How can they feel respected and safe when at any moment the goofy statue might have sprung to life, shouting the unspeakable N-word and brandishing a rope?

Mason also shared plans to move quickly in forming a committee of students and community members to advise her on options for strengthening cultural competency training and reviewing implicit bias training.

You know what that means:

clockwork-orange-brainwashing

The professor responsible — who explicitly intended the statue as a means to rub America’s nose in the muck of neurotic race guilt in accordance with liberal ideology — has been forced by the comical obtuseness of certain students to issue an apology.

“I sincerely apologize for the pain and suffering I caused to the African American community on Friday,” he said. “I am hoping that I will be able to be forgiven for the pain I have caused with my sculpture.”

He isn’t the only one groveling before the mob:

Nic Arp, director of strategic communications for the college, removed those initial social media posts [that promoted the statue] and issued an apology for promoting the art…

“I very sincerely apologize for my insensitivity and for contributing to people’s very real and understandable pain,” Arp wrote on Twitter. “I have learned a lot about how my own privilege and culture bias informed my own initial reaction to it.”

Get off your knees, you gutless caitiffs.

Serhat-Tanyolacar
The thought crime.

    The “artist” could have explained that it is a statue of a prominent historical Democrat and they should play the game of guessing which one.

    Many colleges are now nothing more than an extension of the ‘hood. Instead of higher education, it’s higher indoctrination and thought control. Shameful.

    I recently applied for a job as a operator receiving phone calls at Michigan State U.
    I was grilled for an hour by four dykes– the whole unit was staffed by horrid dykes.
    They were looking at me like like I was from outer space, probably because I’m male. One of the questions was, “Have you ever said anything in the workplace you later regretted, no matter how small?”

    Reminds me of the uproar over the stars and bars on some state flags some years ago. The Democrats were in a hissy because it was a reminder of slavery, an ugly chapter in our history. The irony being that belonging to the Democrat party and its pro-slavery, pro-Jim Crow, segregationist history was somehow lost on them.

    LOL. The liberals are supposed to be the nuanced ones. I have dirt in my yard smarter than liberals. The professor should stick to crucifixes in urine, something all liberals can agree on. I don’t like the “sculpture” because it’s crap. It looks like a 3rd grade decoupage project gone terribly wrong. The professor should be run off for a lack of talent.

    Why, oh why, would an institute of higher learning condemn its own students to such a fate? What purpose could that possibly have? Oh wait — I almost forgot. Nevermind.

    Maybe the artist could apologize by creating an opposite figure? A black KKK figure plastered with black hate crimes. That would actually be a bold artistic statement causing thought about the hypocrisy of our times.
