The conservative group, Campus Reform has reported on a heinous act of racism that took place at American University recently.
Well . . . the act was at least seen as “racist” by dozens of faculty at the university and prompted then to write a group letter to students at the school.
The shameful act?
Someone posted a handwritten sign on a door that read, “All Lives Matter.”
The sign was posted above an organizing notice for a Black Lives Matter training session on how to deal with police and protest.
The response by the faculty to the “incident of intolerance within the community” with a lengthy letter then went on to discuss the exact, appalling incident:
Right before Spring Break, someone anonymously placed a handwritten “All Lives Matter” sign on the door of a faculty member. The sign was positioned directly above a flyer for a training program on police violence and near flyers for other social justice and racial equality events. In context, the message appears intended by the messenger to be an attempt to silence and intimidate an opposing viewpoint, not an effort to communicate a different perspective.
By condemning the benign sign that shows that ALL LIVES, whether white, black, yellow, brown, smart or dumb, MATTER, is that not an effort to silence and intimidate dissent?
For many decades, universities around the nation have become a trap for students to be influenced by liberal thought . . . by professors who rarely have worked outside of Academia and are protected from firing and reprisal regardless of their incompetence.
American University, by this display of ridiculous political correctness, has proven that is no place to spend education dollars . . . unless you’re Bernie Sanders looking for a host for his free education programs.
