There are some things you just can’t make up. This is one of them.
This is how ridiculously liberal higher institutions of learning have become these days.
From Daily Wire:
In Campus Reform’s latest video, Campus Correspondent Ethan Cai asks students at George Washington University if they’d be willing to sign a petition calling for banning the iconic white stick figure in “walk” signals because they are “oppressive.” Most of the students are happy to join the “inclusive” effort.
Part of the reason Campus Reform chose GW for its “offensive” and “oppressive” white walk signal guy petition is because of the students’ recent vote to “remove and replace” the university’s mascot, George the Colonial, which “is received as extremely offensive not only by students of the University, but the nation and world at large” because it “glorifies the act of systemic oppression,” a petition calling for its removal claimed. The measure was passed in March by 54% of the students who voted.
In an attempt to test how deep concerns about “offense” and “oppression” go at GW, Campus Reform went undercover to the university to see if students would sign a new petition, this time calling for the banning of white stick figures in walk signals.
Texas Senator Ted Cruz (R) doesn’t have time for a “generation of pansies.”
From Daily Wire:
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) rocked the room at the Young America’s Foundation National Conservative Student Conference last week, ripping universities and colleges for “trying really hard to raise a generation of pansies.”
Cruz then provoked hilarity, shaking his head sadly and intoning, “We’re all gonna die.” After the laughter and applause subsided, he continued, “One of the saddest things we’re seeing is our colleges and universities are trying really hard to raise a generation of pansies. What is this sense that you have a right not to be offended? You have a right not to hear ideas that are scary? Look, the entire purpose of university is to hear ideas that are scary.”
Texas State University’s student senate basically just voted to allow future bad guys with guns free reign on their campus.
Texas State University’s student senate recently held an “emergency meeting” to vote on a resolution calling on the school to ban its police department. The resolution was authored by one student senator who was arrested last week during an incident on campus involving the assault of a student wearing a MAGA hat, but appears to have not passed a student senate vote.
Texas State University student senator Claudia Gasponi — who authored a resolution last month to ban the school’s Turning Point USA group from campus — has now authored a new resolution to ban the university police from campus.
The resolution was drafted following the student senator’s arrest last week, along with three other students, during a counter-protest gone haywire.
The proposed legislation, entitled, “The Removal of Excessive and Abusive Policing Resolution,” calls for “the dissolution of the University Police Department,” due to the alleged “over-policing” on campus that “specifically targets and endangers people of color.”
