Activists at Yale Demand Discipline for Anyone Engaging in ‘Oppression’ at Nursing School

Activists at Yale Demand Discipline for Anyone Engaging in ‘Oppression’ at Nursing School

“it has become abundantly clear that Yale has always been a dangerous place for black people to learn and work”

These folks are basically saying Yale is a racist school. Maybe the Department of Education should investigate.

The College Fix reports:

Yale activists demand discipline against anyone who engages in ‘oppression’ at nursing school

As the fall semester saw a rise in virtual learning amid COVID-19, the Yale School of Nursing saw a rise in racism complaints.

A group at Yale called the IDEAS Council, which stands for Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, Action, Solutions, created a seven-page list of demands for Yale and its School of Nursing.

Members of the IDEAS Council, according to their website, are made up of students, alumni and faculty and “are champions for DEI within the school, accountable delegates who represent the interests of their constituents, and conduits for relaying information to leadership.”

One of their demands calls for the nursing school to “commit to discipline and/or remove faculty, staff, preceptors, guest speakers, and students who engage in racism and other forms of oppression.” The activists also demand that campus leaders remove any nursing school administrator who won’t follow such a protocol.

While each of the 20 demands include subheads and bullet points, its authors do not spell out how they define what oppression looks like at the nursing school, which costs nearly $70,000 annually in tuition and fees for the graduate entry program.

The IDEAS Council and its faculty representatives did not respond to requests for comment from The College Fix.

Unrest at the nursing school took hold in late October after its director for diversity, equity and inclusion resigned, citing an “oppressive status quo.”

“Since the murder of George Floyd and the movements of global unrest that have followed, it has become abundantly clear that Yale has always been a dangerous place for black people to learn and work, and an even more dangerous place for us to speak out,” director Raven Rodriguez wrote in a memo regarding her departure.

Every Leftist Seminary seems to be a racist circle, might be time to close them all off from any government funding including subsidizing students.

They don’t define oppression because it’s a moving target, to be changed at will so it can be used to target anyone and everyone they decide to be against this week.

Both “hate speech” and “oppression” are fluid terms that can be applied to whatever the Young Marxists decide they don’t like. It’s like the Chinese law against “provoking trouble” that was used to put reporter Zhang Zhan in prison for 4 years.

This is one more attempt by the left to harass their enemies and eliminate free speech in the United States.

If it’s true that “Yale has always been a dangerous place for black people to learn and work,” well, I know this is a crazy idea, but I stay away from places that are dangerous for me.

Maybe I’d better leave it at that, lest we all be banned, fired, and de-platformed.

Dangerous? Last I checked words have meanings. What danger would this be?
