A couple of weeks ago, Pepperdine University in Malibu, California decided to bow to pressure and remove a recently donated Christopher Columbus statue. Apparently, Columbus was a genocidal maniac and leaving the statue up would be a shrine to ethnic cleansing.
While it’s true that he didn’t treat people the way they’ve grown accustomed to be treated, he wasn’t around in 2017, so grow up, students.
One such grown up is Julian Markowitz, who put on a Columbus costume and stood on the pedestal where Christopher once stood. He held up a sign that said, “Save Me,” until security removed him as quietly as possible. The school took it down to protect their investment but the irony is, it’s dissent like Julian’s that is the only hope for academia.
Scott Greer recently completed a book on this topic called No Campus for White Men. He talks about the state of colleges today where they’ve gone from learning centers to Marxist brainwashing schools that resemble a very cushy North Korean camp.
Hate facts are banned in secondary education today, unless of course you have something to say about white men. When it comes to cis-gendered, hetero-normative, middle class Caucasians (basically 50 per cent of college) prejudice isn’t just permitted, it’s mandatory.
