The Campus Social Justice Warriors of Yesterday Are Now in the Workplace
“what happens in higher education matters”
For anyone not in the know, a number of reporters at the New York Times are freaking out because the paper published an op-ed by Republican Senator Tom Cotton of Arkansas.
This is the consequence of campus social justice warriors entering the workforce.
Jennifer Kabbany writes at the College Fix:
‘We all live on campus now’
“We all live on campus now.”
That was the observation made by venerable writer Andrew Sullivan about the state of affairs Americans find themselves in today.
The comment was in response to another observation made by journalist Tim Carney: “Remember 6 years ago when conservatives would point at the censorious college PC woke leftists and say ‘LOL, those kids are in for a rude awakening they enter the real world.’ That was always wrong. It was the rest of us who needed to brace for them.”
They’re sentiments that The College Fix has offered for years: what happens in higher education matters. It reverberates. It has consequences — far-reaching ones.
Sullivan and Carney could have been talking about a lot of topics: violent riots (UC Berkeley in 2017, anyone?); cancel culture (pick a week); the call to “defund the police” (a.k.a. critical race theory).
But in this case they were talking about the New York Times’ decision to reform its op-ed policy after running a column by a Republican U.S. senator that was wildly unpopular among the left.

That was always wrong. It was the rest of us who needed to brace for them. https://t.co/iaLpFowZif

Journalists at the NY Times are calling for the censorship of a Republican senator and high ranking Dems around the country want to defund the police. The college campusification of the American left is now realized.

Twist there on bigoty around on them. Every opinion matter and every race matters or you’re a marginalizing BIGOT. Never accept their premise and never bow down.
Or do like the Patriot in this must see video clip.
Just start up a chainsaw.
The guy is not encouraging this behavior.
He is pointing out the protesters hypocrisy, calling the police for help while also participating in a protest designed to defund them.
Protesters: “F the police!”
*guy comes at them with a chainsaw*
Protestors: “Call the police!”
Their bigotry is practical (at least to the evil handlers; the useful idiots have sold their souls):
the US is a Judeo-Christian country, and its foundings rest on those values. Thus, Chistianity and Judiasm must be demonized.
Obama really was the Manchurian Candidate so many of us claimed he was. We had a rabid traitor in the highest office in our land for 8 years.
We’re paying the price.

Charlie Chace, an 82-year-old Air Force veteran, was beaten while he was waving a Trump sign at a rotary in Fall River. A 27-year-old man, later identified as Aidan Courtright, was charged by police in the incident.
The Providence Journal’s Jack Perry wrote:
The police say they were called Tuesday after an elderly man was ‘violently targeted for his political views and violently assaulted.’ The 82-year-old man told the police he was standing in a grassy area off North Main Street and Airport Road when a man stopped his car, got out, and walked toward him, screaming, ‘Give me the (expletive) sign!,’ the police said in a news release. The man, later identified as Aidan Courtright, of 41 Rolling Green Drive, then ripped the sign out of the victim’s hands, tore it in half, and threw it on the ground, the police said. Courtright then grabbed the victim by his shirt, knocking his hat off, and threw him to the ground, the police said. While the elderly man was on the ground, Courtright kicked him in his ribs and legs before driving away, the police said.

Given the location, I expect that Chace will end up being convicted of assaulting Courtwright’s hands and feet with his body. We are rapidly moving beyond the point where matters will be settled by discussion or elections.
And don’t blink. Before you know it, they will be running the workplace.
I fear this country will be unrecognizable, if it still exists at all, in 20 years.
Minneapolis is talking about radically changing the cops. I posted this video as a potential model.
Too late. Where I work ( a Fortune 500 company), we have for a while had training classes about “microinequities”, but now we’re pushing “inclusive” very hard. Now there are training classes for “Psychological Safety” as well. Every year we add more of these things that are only understood by the new grads we hire.
You mean, the Hitler Youth?
I used to love young people. I can’t stand them now. I see them as barbarians at the gate.
When viewed individually and over the course of years the corporate social advisory meetings seem like minor annoyances to be endured, but viewed in the aggregate they become a series of social justice indoctrination / struggle meetings.
You know the dull old cliche describing the best way to cook a frog is to slow cook it.
Yeah. We’re being slow-cooked.
They’re running it now.
This reminds me of Austrians who one day found themselves under Nazi control: not a shot was fired, no announcement was made – it was drip, drip, drip, until one day it was just done.
Same here. But there was no Second Amendment in the Third Reich.
Effectively, we have none here, either. When all that ever happens is drip, drip, drip it’s always “never the right time” to exercise it.
Collectively, we have been boehners.
Accept it, kick yourself in the ass a hundred times, and move to the Trump level. Or die.
Universities have become The Devil’s Workshop.” Liberal Arts majors are the idle hands.
‘We all live on campus now’
Fortunately, some of us grew up and matured. Unfortunately, not enough of us did.
Wait till they run the government.
Oprah Winfrey to Lead Two-Night Town Hall on Racism in America, With Stacey Abrams and Director Ava DuVernay:
Remember Scott Beauchamp? He’s the leading edge wokester who wrote the infamous “Shock Troopers” series of articles for The New Republic. TNR refused to retract the series but Beauchamp did resign.
Yet within months he was back working at a media firm.
I work with one now and it is horrendous. He complains about everything and everyone non-stop, he’s not a team player and is self centered, even more than self centered, he’s self-entitled and over-demanding. He believes he deserves everything even though he hasn’t proven himself in anything. He is also the biggest bigot I have ever met. Lacks all introspection and critical thinking skills. I have never met someone who is so myopic and bigoted. He constantly rationalizes his hate. And he shows his hate and contempt openly. When they become managers and leaders, employees will hate him and will no doubt be the cause of numerous workplace lawsuits.
Have recommended suicide to him yet?
at the same time more and more colleges are offering segregated dorms. What ever happened to the desegregation movement?
Separation is no mandatory, because they found that in desegregated dorms it was harder to indoctrinate the different races, genders, etc. to hate each other. Strangely enough, when put together too many students recognized each other as fellow Americans. Can’t serve the revolution that way.
“Workplace?” meaning “Wokeplace?” (I crack me up.)
Trades aren’t guilds much any more, even less do they require a ticket to ride from the clerisy.
The wokescolds have a kind of power inside craven systems existing on low-margin sufferance. One tiny boycott trims the precarious system’s tiny margins.
Yeoman farmers, each with their own means and goods are far less vulnerable. Yeoman trades-folk even less. What of the yeoman thoughworker, tech-nomadding around doing remote piecework? Knowledge workers who embody their own means of product are less vulnerable yet.
I think the kiddies may find themselves with their flaccid choke hold on still more flaccid structures. When their inflations run out, they collapse, don’t they?
And every time employers give in to these idiots, they empower them–take, for example, the employees who left work rather than make tacos for police officers.
