OSU expands ‘microaggression’ course taken by Somali terrorist

Ohio State University is expanding a course on “microaggressions” and “social justice,” despite concern over how the class may have played a role in the 2016 knife attack that wounded 13 people and led to police killing Abdul Artan, the student attacker.

The course, “Crossing Identity Boundaries,” was first offered in 2015 by the school’s Multicultural Center, which touted it as an opportunity for students to “identify microaggressions within their daily lives” and discuss ways to “challenge systems of power and privilege.”

Though the course initially had one section, interest grew and by Fall 2016 the course had three sections, further expanding to five sections by Spring 201. And now, for Fall 2018, OSU is offering six sections of the course, with space for at least 136 students.

On November 28, 2016, Somali-born student Abdul Artan rang campus police to report an emergency chemical leak in the engineering building. To get students out fast, the fire alarm was pulled, and dozens of students evacuated the building.

Then, at 9:52 a.m., Artan drove a Honda Civic into the courtyard, striking several students before crashing into a brick wall. He then exited the car, reportedly “let out a war cry,” and began attacking passerby with a butcher knife. Thirteen people landed in the ER.

Within minutes, the attacker was shot and killed by police.

Microaggressions are like cosmic rays. To people who are unaware, cosmic rays constantly pour down on them, and pass right through without notice. But start convincing people about their prevalence and how hurtful they are, and they will start to feel them raining down and burning their skin until they can’t stand it anymore. The same with microaggressions. They are little everyday insults and slights that most people ignore or don’t perceive. Once you are taught to look for them and that you are supposed to be angered and hurt by their painful intent, they will overwhelm your life. People can’t hurt your feelings if you don’t allow them to be hurt. Classes like this are an exercise in how to whip yourself into a frenzy of anger and hate toward others.

Microaggressions are for macropu$$ies. Ye shall know them by their hats…..

“identify microaggressions within their daily lives” and discuss ways to “challenge systems of power and privilege.”

The people who have the privilege of deciding that something is a microaggression (think they) have the power. That’s really the whole point of inventing microaggressions.

With that explanation I just made it so you don’t even need the class anymore. You’re welcome. No charge.
