Evergreen State College in Washington isn’t the first American campus to find itself besieged by unwarranted and outrageous racial grievances, but it ought to be the last. It’s time for everyone – the academics, the administrators, the media, and the politicians – to call these periodic outbursts what they are: The rise of mainstream black supremacy. This stopped being about equality a long time ago. Since the advent of Black Lives Matters and all of its misbegotten outgrowths, this has become a racist movement against whites, and you don’t need a degree in history to know where that kind of thing leads.
At Evergreen, the local black activists wanted to turn the already-racist “Day of Absence” – a day where black students would stay home instead of coming to school – into a Day Without Whitey, where white students and faculty would leave campus and let minorities have the exclusive run of the place. Disturbed by the return of segregationist ideas, Professor Bret Weinstein wrote an open letter objecting to the idea. He wasn’t frenzied about it. He merely suggested there were perhaps better ways to foster an atmosphere of inclusiveness and equality than turning whites and blacks against each other.
Naturally, the radicals wanted to hear no such message. Angry mobs holed themselves up inside Weinstein’s classroom, screamed at him, demanded that he resign, and generally made complete asses out of themselves. And they knew it, too. How do we know they knew it? When videos of their outlandish behavior were posted to YouTube, they went ballistic, demanding that the college find and prosecute those who taped their near-riotous tantrum. Apparently even the far-left has the capability of feeling shame…or at least they have awareness enough to know how most of the civilized world would see it.
The activists, such as they are, then presented the college with a list of demands. Anyone familiar with BLM-style demand lists won’t be surprised at the audacity of the list, and anyone familiar with how these schools cower in the face of racial justice mobs won’t be surprised at how Evergreen has responded. Even so, every new example of this idiocy is somehow freshly appalling; it’s just mind-boggling that this could be happening in the United States and completely horrifying that a sizable portion of liberals actually condone this.
Their demands include:
The disarming of campus police services…mmmhmm.
Mandatory sensitivity and cultural competency training for all staff…brainwashing, in other words.
A new staff position that will support undocumented students…just ugh.
And of course, Evergreen’s dean is already in the process of meeting many of their ludicrous demands.
A lot has been written about the dangers these liberal fascists pose to the First Amendment, and those warnings aren’t to be ignored. But there’s something even darker going on here – the complete dehumanization of white Americans. That way lies serious trouble, as these activists SHOULD be well aware.
Alas, you can’t blame a snake for biting you. What you can do, however, is heap great shame on the fools who keep letting the snake stay in the house.
