So, what is it?

The last week or two has been quite busy in the University world in the U.S. But what causes this, where does it come from?

First, a brief run-down:

Students at Mizzou now telling Whites that they need to congregate separately.

Snowflakes at Yale screaming at the campus master because of an email he sent indicating that perhaps treating Ivy League college students like children on Halloween is not a good idea.

A “Million Student March” represented on national television by a lady who believes that “absolutely” a 90% income tax is perfectly appropriate for the “1% who are hoarding” wealth in the United States, but 100% would be socialism. What do they want? Free college, of course.

On Thursday, Claremont College managed to oust their President over a poorly worded email. One incident which was branded as a central trigger event was someone scratching out “trans” and placing “cis” on an “I support trans rights” poster on a dorm-room door.

Amherst College is asking the college president to denounce: “institutional legacy of white supremacy, colonialism, anti-black racism, anti-Latinx racism, anti-Native American racism, anti-Native/ indigenous racism, anti-Asian racism, anti-Middle Eastern racism, heterosexism, cis-sexism, xenophobia, anti-Semitism, ableism, mental health stigma, and classism.” To that end, a library “sit-in” was scheduled for Saturday for the president to address the group, which was scheduled after someone had the audacity to post an anti-abortion message (“All Lives Matter”) over a “Black Lives Matter” poster. Only approved points of view allowed.

And now, as if the rest isn’t enough, the week ends with students at Mizzou complaining on Twitter that the Paris attacks are taking too much of their precious limelight away (even though they have spent a lot of effort keeping the press away).

Nobody could have put it better than Stephen Hayward on Powerline, in photos (the first quarter of it is appropo for Mizzou and Yale).

Where does it come from?

Ladies and Gentlemen, what we have here is very simple:

Progressivism’s JV Team.
