Escalating madness of woke dogma on campus
Once an arena of ambivalent beliefs, colleges have been taken over by a vigilant left agenda that will not tolerate any dissent.
A few weeks ago, on the campus of San Francisco State University, 12-time All-American swimmer Riley Gaines was nearly beaten by an angry group of protesters who took issue with her message that biological men has no place among women. sports
He was chased down a hallway and practically held captive, because he had the courage to stand up to the left-wing mob.
The San Francisco State administration never offered a pardon to the 23-year-old swimmer. Instead, it tried to portray him as an aggressor.
In a statement released by the university’s president, Lynn Mahoney, she called Riley’s presence on campus “deeply hurtful” to the trans community and instead of condemning the SFSU student body for exercising their so-called right to free speech. chose to praise .
America’s college students didn’t learn to become ideological radicals overnight—contrary to ideals of freedom of speech and expression.
But they learned over time and they learned by example, from professors like Shailene Rodriguez, who until her termination Tuesday evening as an adjunct professor at Hunter College, a public college that is part of the City University of New York system. keep working
In footage posted on Twitter by Students for Life of America, Rodriguez is seen tearing into a group of anti-abortion students who were tabling in an academic building.
He accused them of spreading “f-king propaganda” and indulging in violence, moments before pushing anti-abortion materials to the ground and walking away.
There was a time when college campuses were a battleground of ideas, where free speech was welcomed and differences of opinion were championed.
If today’s college professors are deprived of this, how can we be surprised that America’s youth have done the same?
Contrary to his claim, it was not the anti-abortion students who chose the violence in that video. It was Rodriguez.
And as time will tell, it won’t be the first time.
A few days later, he held a thread around the neck of a New York Post reporter.
Rodriguez didn’t just choose violence.
He chose bigotry; He chose repression.
He chose intolerance.
Everything he claims is against the progressive principle.
