Princeton University professor Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor recently tweeted “no human is illegal. Open the border. Let them all in,” reported Campus Reform.
Wow, um, that’s pretty…radical. And don’t you get tired of that little word game? “You can’t use that term because human beings can’t be illegal.” You can’t really expect me to believe that you believe that I’m calling their humanity illegal.
Taylor’s remark, of course, was shared by George Ciccariello-Maher, the “all I want for Christmas is white genocide” ex-professor who’s also said that the Las Vegas massacre “is what happens when” white people “don’t get what they want.”
Back to the Princeton professor…after Trump said that he asked Secretary of State Pompeo to look into the farm seizures and murders of South African farmers, Taylor tweeted “Trump 101: turning lemons into white supremacy.”
Yeahhh I’m not too sure how ensuring that white farmers have basic rights to property and their own lives translates into white supremacy. But maybe I need to brush up on my social justice lingo. I tried reaching out to Taylor for comment by email and phone, but got no response. I’m sure she’s fully capable of defending her well-articulated arguments and was simply swamped with creating facile left-wing agitprop.
Princeton Students Cut ‘Misogynistic’ Little Mermaid Song
The Tigertones, a Princeton University a cappella group, perform “Kiss the Girl,” a song from The Little Mermaid, reported Campus Reform.
But not everyone’s a fan. Princeton student Noa Wollstein wrote an op-ed in the student paper calling the song “misogynistic.” Noa says that “even when gently crooned by an animated crab, the song…is more misogynistic and dismissive of consent than cute.”
She notes that a sea-witch had cursed Ariel, taking her voice away and making the mermaid unable to give verbal consent. But if you’ve seen the scene from The Little Mermaid, you’ll remember that Ariel’s expressions make her feelings pretty obvious.
Leaning in for a kiss, looking dejected when Eric backs out, giving a big ol’ goofy smile, and grabbing his hand, that doesn’t exactly look like sexual assault, folks.
But what does Noa want? Well, when the Princeton Tigertones sing “Kiss the Girl,” they pick a male and female audience member to act out the parts of Ariel and Eric. This means that they’re persuaded to kiss at the end of the song.
The student columnist says she’s seen many female students not happy with the practice and she asked the Tigertones to stop singing the song. The a cappella group complied, but here’s the thing: who’s responsible here? Peer pressure’s really annoying, don’t get me wrong, but if students at an Ivy League institution can’t even cope with that, I’m a bit worried about our next generation of leaders.
White Students ‘Invading’ Black ‘Affinity Spaces’ At Princeton
A building at Princeton University apparently has “cultural affinity spaces,” which are designated areas where students of one racial minority can talk or study, according to Campus Reform. There’s a black affinity space, a Hispanic one, a Middle Eastern one, etc. But some Princeton students were pretty annoyed to find white students hanging out in spaces for other racial groups.
It’s very ironic that segregation is now the progressive thing to do in the current year 2018. Isn’t desegregation what diversity is all about?
Now, to be clear, Princeton doesn’t prohibit students from entering an affinity space with an identity to which they don’t belong. You just get maybe 15 minutes of public stoning. No, I’m kidding — there’s no punishment except for the social censure of your peers, who, when they can’t segregate themselves, really, really suffer.
One student, Saran Touré, said that when she wants to cry, she wants to go to a room filled only with people of her own race. And if people from a different race are there, she feels uncomfortable. Isn’t that just a bit disturbing? That she’s only comfortable showing that emotion around people who have the same amount of melanin that she has? Guys, this is just how DEEP the cancer of social justice runs. Contrary to its purported mission of UNITING races, at the end of the day, it’s stripping away people’s very ability to empathize with those who look different.
Halloween Hysteria Hits College Campuses
Gonzaga University Queer Student Union President Jeffrey Goong suggested that, for instance, if you’re a guy thinking about wearing a skirt for Halloween, you should consider that some guys wear skirts when it’s NOT Halloween and commit suicide after people make fun of them, according to Campus Reform.
Jeffrey, Jeffrey — yes, kids have, very sadly, committed suicide after getting bullied…but that doesn’t suddenly make guys dressing as girls or vice versa not funny. You aren’t God with some kind of supernatural control over people’s basic impulses. Really — it’s downright mystifying that this faction that complains about dehumanizing rhetoric is the same one that is trying to undermine basic human nature. Anyway, Gonzaga wasn’t the only school to participate in October outrage fest.
Princeton’s student government emailed out a check list, reported Campus Reform, and a few points stood out to me. Take numbers 1 and 3: “Is my costume making fun of a group of people?” and “Does my costume reduce cultural differences to jokes and stereotypes?” You know, I’m starting to become skeptical of the premise that these guys are just super sensitive. I’m starting to think that, like cultural Marxists who want to dilute all of the quirky intricacies of various world cultures into one slushpile, these people just detest differences and can’t bear to see such a vibrant, and yes, somewhat hyperbolic expression of them.
Then there was this one: “Does my costume have the potential to create an unsafe or hostile environment?” The short answer to this, of course, is no. Articles of clothing cannot, of their own volition, get up and punch people in the face and if you’re referring to feelings: remember that offense is always taken, not given. Desensitizing yourself is very important for anyone to do if you want to be able to respond with reason instead of emotion when an actual crisis comes up.
The third school that really caught my eye this Halloween was the University of Utah, where diversity officer Kehaulani Folau said cultural appropriation is “the baby of racism and capitalism,” according to Campus Reform. That’s not true, but capitalism does allow people like Folau to preach their insanity, unlike some more authoritarian models of government under which you might find arguments like hers codified into law.
