Mizzou and Yale PC Hysteria Spreads to Other Campuses
At Vanderbilt, an online student petition is demanding the suspension of Professor of Law and Political Science Carol Swain for being “hateful” toward minorities. A fun twist in this particular purge? She herself is a minority:
The fact that Professor Swain is black is no insulation from these charges. Swain’s apostasy is that she has made politically incorrect statements about radical Islam and her traditional Christian beliefs, statements that the petitioners deem intolerant and which the University, therefore, must not tolerate -- tolerance, of course, being a one-way street. Without any apparent sense of irony, the petitioners make the inevitable demand that Swain be sent to diversity training camp (along with the rest of the faculty) so that she will think and speak in a manner approved by the commissars of political correctness.
The liberal faculties who now have to deal with this nightmare have themselves to blame for their part in fostering this virus. But most of the blame lies where it incubated: the homes that created these toxic superbugs known as "social justice warriors."
