Wake Forest University student Ryan Wolfe dared to participate in a conservative panel at his school, reported The Wake Forest Review. And for that heinous crime, fellow students Julius Goble and Char Van Schenck took the opportunity to photoshop parts of his face on crackers. Junior Brianna Reddick took it a step further, informing Wolfe that he was a “mayonnaise monster-looking ass” and literally delivering “the saltiest Republican a box of saltine crackers” at the actual panel.
Now, Wolfe wasn’t triggered by these food comparisons. No, rather he said “I support the free speech rights of students. But in this case, I wanted to see if the school would enforce their rules surrounding verbal and abuse equally regardless of who was involved in the case. I knew that similar rhetoric about the identity of other groups would not be tolerated.”
But the North Carolina school’s bias response team declined to let Wolfe press charges against the students, with Dean of students Adam Goldstein saying it would only “make things worse” for Wolfe. Goldstein instead sent the offending students to an LGBTQ seminar. Here’s what the school finally had to say:
“Federal privacy laws prevent us from sharing information maintained in student records, including administrators’ interactions with students. We can say that the narrative oversimplifies a complex situation that took place 16 months ago in the heat of a polarizing national election.”
Seems like when it comes to TRUE racial equality, Wake Forest could get a bit more woke.
Religion Prof: Believing In God Is Immoral
Meet Dr. Jarrod Whitaker, a religion and gender studies professor at Wake Forest University, argues that believing in God is not only irrational, but also immoral, according to The Daily Caller News Foundation.
An unnamed Catholic student of his recently came forward and said Whitaker would constantly “explain why Christian theology is problematic, racist, sexist, imperialist, and fundamentally evil. His point was specifically that Christianity is in a position of power, everything came down to who is in a position of power and how we can problematize that.”
It never ceases to fascinate me how leftists criticize the very thing they love the most: power. Maybe they think that because they, in their infinite compassion, abuse power, so must everyone else.
Anyways, the Catholic student said Whitaker’s “position was that it was not only illogical to believe in God. He said that to believe in God is one of the most immoral things you can do, and to believe there is an objective Truth is the most tremendous evil that is responsible for all the great suffering in the world.”
Now, responding to his alleged bias, Whitaker gave a pretty boilerplate response, saying critical inquiry can cause distress but that he “at all times reaffirm[s] [his] students’ religious convictions, while asking them to think through their own beliefs with a critical, analytical, and self-reflexive perspective.”
This is cultural Marxism. If my ideology can’t hope to make people as prosperous, civilized, and egalitarian as yours, I’ll just conveniently ignore the metrics you use and attribute your success to the exploitation of others. And there’s the rub: if normal forms of measurement like logic and reason fail cultural Marxists, they’ll just redefine concepts like equality and diversity or create completely new systems by which they can give their own ideas points.
And when you don’t obey their rules, you better get ready for the ad hominems, like Wake Forest conservative student Ryan Wolfe, who was rewarded for his conservative beliefs by getting called a “mayonnaise monster-looking ass.”
