Paging George Orwell…
Students at the University of Wisconsin Madison have started a petition to force members of Young America’s Foundation to go through diversity training. Nothing creepy about that.

UW students petition to shut down YAF, punish leaders
Students at the University of Wisconsin, Madison are demanding that their school’s administration put members of a conservative club “through intensive diversity training.”
An online petition being circulated by the school’s “Student Coalition for Progress” condemns the Young Americans for Freedom (YAF) chapter on campus for hosting Ben Shapiro, whom they claim has “used his following and nationally syndicated media presence to deny the realities of systematic and institutional violence against Black and Brown people, sexual assault survivors, Muslims, LGBTQIA+ people, people with low income[s], people with differing abilities, undocumented immigrants, and anyone that [sic] is systematically targeted along identity lines.”
The petition goes on to blame YAF for “making campus a hostile environment by attempting to out and misgender LGBTQIA+ students,” claiming that some members have even “individually confronted” and thus “made feel unsafe prominent members of student government.”
Accordingly, the petition demands that YAF’s charter be “revoked,” as well as asking for subsequent punishments for each of the “involved students” who could potentially be forced to undergo “intensive diversity training.”
