Crazy Left. Crazy Political Correctness.
Political Correctness Gone Mad.
The Big Question: WHY? WHO BENEFITS?
IT'S ALL JUST TOO CRAZY!
Mention something negative about Islam.
Shrieks and name-calling, charges of Islamophobia (though a bit less name-calling these days).
Mention that you have doubts about mainstream thought on climate change.
and name-calling: climate change denier!!
Make a quick leap from yet another suicide murder attack by devout Muslims to Islam.
More shrieks and name-calling.
Cast doubts about Israel being the big bad wolf against the poor Palestinians.
The response - as expected.
It gets tiresome, the Pavlovian "foam at the mouth" response.
My question: what is going on? It's a cookie cutter response - as if from someone with no imagination who has found a recipe for cutting off thinking. And why not? Clearly the recipe works: just get people to froth at the mouth. And to fear the frothing of others.
One case. Students recoil in horror, at a university where whites are in the minority, at some white students wanting a group for whites. It's terrible. They feel unsafe.
Yet into my inbox comes an email from the David Horowitz Freedom Center:
The "safe spaces" demanded primarily by black students are also spaces free from diverse ideas and from critical thinking itself, especially about race. And if the "cry-bullies" protesting what they call racial insensitivity don’t get their way, they turn to behavior that exposes who they really are.
Case in point: the Black Lives Matter thugs who recently occupied the library at Dartmouth College, yelling "F--k you, you filthy white f----s!" and other threats at the students studying there.
So much for universities needing to be places where students feel safe.
The email continues:
It is not a pretty picture. But there is a less discussed but even more disturbing issue also stalking our universities today - the presence of activist groups acting as mouthpieces for Islamist terrorism who are given funds and other support by campus administrators as they spew their message of hate.
The big thing: I get this message over and over. It isn't as if these facts were shocking revelations. Anything but.
Still, it's a pleasure to hear a voice of sanity, excellent information clearly given - like Bill Whittle
on the lack of need for gun control. The problem is clearly something else - and if facts counted, the debate would be over:
But the facts don't count. That's a central finding, over and over.
What looks like a crazy left, like political correctness gone mad, is in fact institutionally supported - supported by the media, supported by government on many levels, supported by the educational systems from the very start all the way through university. "Someone" does not want the easy-to-access information out there.
Follow the money, I have heard over and over. Ok, so tell me, who gains from this?
Also, just what am I looking at?

PS. I've ended up going way more exploring. Click here.
PPS. And then I asked: who benefits?
PPPS. I also explored: how does one crack "THE TRUTH, THE WHOLE TRUTH, AND NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH" when it isn't anything like the truth?
