David Horowitz has an EXCELLENT point that higher education is really an ideological seminary. Heresy and contrasting thought is NOT allowed. In fact, Dennis Prager makes the point that at a Christian seminary debate and exposure to contrasting thinking is probably more than at a secular university.
CAUTION, ADULT MATERIAL:
This is another example of the Left cannibalizing itself, and shows why socialism (totalitarianism) never works. As you dissect people based on race, class, gender (the Leftist Trinity), chaos usually erupts (BLACK, LESBIAN, FEMALE, ALLERGY-PRONE PERSONS NOT WITHSTANDING)!
Let me say that this story isn’t a “neat” story about bullying driving someone to kill themselves. This porn actress was probably depressed, was in an industry that tore down the human spirit rather than build it up, and drugs or alcohol may have been needed [abused] in order to stay in such a degrading industry. This bullying may-or-may-not-have been the last straw in an already tragic life. WHAT IS SHOWN HERE is the propensity of “equality” as the Left views it causing intellectual cannibalism and doing the exact opposite of the claims of egalitarianism — which is actually illiberal egalitarianism. BEFORE getting to this newer example, here is one from a post just after the women’s march:
Another example of “special rights” trumping others is this favorite quote of mine from Dale Berryhill:
- “If homosexuality is really genetic, we may soon be able to tell if a fetus is predisposed to homosexuality, in which case many parents might choose to abort it. Will gay rights activists continue to support abortion rights if this occurs?”
The Liberal Contradiction: How Contemporary Liberalism Violates Its Own Principles and Endangers Its Own Goals (Lafayette, LA: Vital Issues Press, 1994), 172.
Some group and special interest group is going to lose. Which group with the most funding and most political influence will win? Anyhew… here is a recent example of women losing out via GAY PATRIOT’S excellent (as usual) commentary:

Critical theory is the sword; political correctness is the shield
William Alfred “Bill” Whittle (born April 7, 1959) is an American conservative blogger, political commentator, director, screenwriter, editor, pilot, and author. In this segment, he talks about the Critical Theory of the Frankfurt School and how they created a form of neo-marxism.
Is Google open to a diverse array of viewpoints? Or is it an ideological echo chamber? Just ask former Google software engineer James Damore. He was fired for disagreeing with Google’s (left-wing) orthodoxy. In this video, James shares his story.
Dennis is joined by protester Austin Morgan, Senior at University of Wyoming, regarding the “fuss” [lies] over Dennis’ speech Thursday. Dennis has been labeled by the protesters as anti-academic, a rape advocate, and of spewing hate speech against blacks, women, Muslims, and fellow Jews. I include a call from the following hour regarding Matthew Shepard. See more at NY-POST.

Curing cancer through cultural appropriation:
Just when you thought joyless, whining social justice warriors couldn’t possibly ruin anything else, they’ve now set their sights on Halloween. (H/T to Gateway Pundit)
GAY PATRIOT comments well on the above PC Police stopping “cultural appropriation”
More on the YALE PROFESSOR
(Young Conservatives have a really good post on this) This comes via Gay Patriot’s commentary on “a generation is raised to believe that they are so wonderful and so special that anything that offends them…”
- They were mad because a professor said in an email that if someone’s Halloween costume offended them, they should try and act like adults about it. (The longer version can be found here)

Jordan Peterson, Canadian clinical psychologist and professor of psychology at the University of Toronto, speaks with The Epoch Times about Postmodernism and Cultural Marxism. Communism is estimated to have killed at least 100 million people, yet its crimes have not been fully compiled and its ideology still persists.
“One of the biggest things we can do is identify what our problem is. We have a problem which we have a white Marxist organization that has indoctrinated our kids the last 15 years with anti-white, anti-flag, anti-American — everything you see on the sidelines today has been flooded into our community — the liberal filth for 15 years — it’s called Black Entertainment Television [BET].
It’s not owned by black people It’s white people with a black facade, black employees with a message that is anti-American. So you have all these kids growing up in this environment, they’ve become millionaires, they’re going to believe what they were taught to believe.
We are up against a very evil ideology, guys. And understand that and we pull these guys from behind their corporate boardrooms. Have them stand in front of the American people and explain what they are doing to us.”
Being a White Male helps in mass shootings as well. I guess that is why about the same number of black youths are killed every month in Illinois… #BecauseWitePrivilege.
Here are a few quotes from that Philadelphia INQUIRER article
Just a year ago Obama awarded a posthumous Medal of Freedom to Dr. Seuss… now… Dr. Seuss is Racist. JUST LIKE within the past year… free speech has turned into violence. See my post for more.

Here is an excerpt from the article mentioned on the show:
See also the interview at the NEW YORK MAGAZINE’S wonderful piece. JONATHAN HAIDT also has a fine piece defending the freedom of thought in such a piece… and those that wish to censor anything that disagrees with Leftism. Here is a snippet of it:
NATIONAL REVIEW gets into the weeds as well, via, Heather Mac Donald. Why? Because of the uproar from such an article. Someone stepped out of line and needs to be corrected… sent to re-education camps!
