Dez-Ann Romain, principal of the Brooklyn Democracy Academy, a public high school, always kept her office neat and freshened with new flowers, and kept the school decorated with inspirational quotes.

The University of Oklahoma is embroiled in a racial controversy after a history professor, reading directly from a “historical document,” said the n-word in class. Despite offering students a trigger warning before reading from the text, the professor did not avoid the usual outrage from a student culture obsessed with equating language with violence.

OU President Joseph Harroz Jr. sent a letter to the OU community addressing the incident by announcing plans to institute a mandatory “diversity, equity, and inclusion” training for all faculty, staff, and members of the administration. The training will address “implicit bias.”

Harroz then focused on the faculty member who used the racial slur in the classroom.

“While she could have made the point without reciting the actual word, she chose otherwise,” Harroz wrote. “Her issuance of a ‘trigger warning’ before her recitation does not lessen the pain caused by the use of the word. For students in the class, as well as members of our community, this was another painful experience. It is common sense to avoid uttering the most offensive word in the English language, especially in an environment where the speaker holds the power.”

Oh man, do they have this guy trained.

For whatever reason, they have this thing called a Black Emergency Response Team (BERT) at the university, and, naturally, they used this incident (if you can call it that?) to justify their own existence, organizing a hunger strike and a sit-in to protest the university’s response.

Their demands – and we are not making this up – include the resignation of Provost Kyle Harper, equity training for all faculty, a new Multicultural Center, and a Popeye’s Chicken restaurant on campus.

This isn’t the entire reason that we can’t take social justice warriors seriously, but it sure doesn’t help.

It sounds like the OU campus is teetering on the edge of a total collapse of sanity and common sense, so it was a little surprising that Campus Reform could find a student with the actual capacity to think.

“While I don’t think it’s okay to say the word, I do know that she did not mean the word in a racist or derogatory way,” said student Emma Wilks. “She was simply reading a speech word for word. I think it’s ridiculous that BERT is making this a racist incident when it was not.”

Yeah, but how else are they going to get those delicious chicken sandwiches?

This woman's story is going viral.

An Indiana teacher released a viral video this week giving riveting testimony about her dismissal from a public school because of her activism efforts against left-wing educational schemes.

“My name is Jennifer, and I am a public school teacher who is also the founder of Purple for Parents Indiana,” she said. “I started Purple for Parents here to expose the truth about Red for Ed, the NEA and the radical agenda behind it.”

Earlier this year, President Donald Trump signed an executive order requiring institutions of higher learning “to promote free and open debate.” Progressives largely opposed the measure, claiming the perceived assault on free speech is exaggerated.

Tell that to a conservative gun-rights supporter who was surrounded by a left-wing mob at Ohio University earlier this week. The Washington Post reports, “Students swarmed Kaitlin Bennett and her companions in a tense encounter Monday captured in several videos … showing students yelling, flipping off the visitors and at one point throwing drinks through an open window of their truck.” Bennett’s crime? She went to campus to ask students about “Presidents’ Day.”

Dangerous people are filling the heads of young people with dangerous nonsense. Who are these people? They are what Jordan Peterson calls “the post-modernists:” neo-Marxist professors who dominate our colleges and universities. And here’s the worst part: we are financing these nihilists with tax dollars, alumni gifts and tuition payments. ...
