Academia Will Accept Almost Anything if it’s Framed as Advancing Social Justice

Academia Will Accept Almost Anything if it’s Framed as Advancing Social Justice

“White people are committed to being villains in the aggregate.”

This has been true for quite a while now. If you appear to be advancing the left, almost anything goes.

The Radicalization of the American Academy

You Can Make Many Bizarre Claims in Academia IF You Frame Them as Advancing Social Justice

I. Brittney Cooper, Professor of Women’s & Gender Studies, Rutgers, on The Root:

About 12 minutes in: “White people are committed to being villains in the aggregate.”

About 18 minutes in: “The thing I want to say to you is ‘We gotta take these MF’ers out,’ but we can’t say that. I don’t believe in a project of violence.”

II. Aruna Khilanani, Psychiatrist, speaking at Yale’s Grand Rounds

Some quotes:

  • “This is the cost of talking to White people at ll. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there.
  • “I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way…”
  • “White people are out of their minds and they have been for a long time.”

Representative reactions by Yale attendees:

“Thank you for shaking [things] up; I feel shaken up in a good way…”

“Thank you for this…it’s the truth…”

“I really appreciate your comments.”

III. Peer Reviewed Publication, Not a Hoax

Nutpicking? Anecdotes? Maybe, but your first reason to doubt that this is nothing but meaningless anecdotes is the universal approval at Yale of Khilalani’s talk by attendees.

Although these particular statements are extreme, even in academia, they are not that unusual. Of course, there was The Grievance Studies Sting, in which respectable and at least one prestigious peer reviewed academic journal published (or were likely on the way to publishing when the Sting was discovered) articles making claims such as: White students should be chained and never allowed to speak; men should (metaphorically of course) be leashed like dogs; and my favorite, Our Struggle is My Struggle (Unser Kampf ist Mein Kampf), which was a rewrite of a section from the original Mein Kampf, with “privilege” replacing “Jews.”

Comments

Looks like the psychiatrist needs some mental health treatment of his own

The headline is correct. Cornell’s Director of Aquatics made the case for a new indoor swimming pool facility. His wife then testified in favor of the proposal because it would help BIPOC. students, faculty and staff. This is a dumb argument, but she tried to make it anyway.

Social Justice is a demonic ideology.
