University shuts down satirical social justice bake sale for this ridiculous reason

Mike GwilliamRebel Columnist

A Regis University administrator shut down a right-wing student's satirical “social justice bake sale” during the school's Social Justice Week.

The reason? Because it was a “demonstration”.

According to The College Fix, “Alexander Beck was offering cookies for prices based on the perceived oppression or privilege of each customer, with Asians paying more than whites and blacks paying more than Hispanics. Women and LGBT students got 25 cents off their race’s price.”

Beck learned that students filed “bias reports” against him for the bake sale and he was the subject of a secret meeting convened by the diversity office. He was planning to give the bake-sale proceeds to the “Yiannopoulos Privilege Grant,” a scholarship focused on white males.

As the bake sale gathered attention, Dean of Students Diane McSheehy demanded an explanation of his activities and whether they were permitted. Beck said the Office of Student Activities had approved his table, but the dean responded that the table was a “demonstration” and needed a separate approval process.

Media coverage of the University’s culture of oppression in response to the bake sale. “Demonstration” a success without even happening.

Damn, how do I get a job with the “Office of Student Activities” and how much does it pay? I won’t be expected to work more than 8 months (minus fall break, Christmas (I hate Christmas, I’m an Atheist, but still, you know, holidays and stuff) Spring break (suddenly in March) and Easter) right? It’s salaried with a pension, but still, a guy can only work so much when he has Blue Jays tickets.

“Office of Diversity”. No, no, no you mean, “Fake government job”. Good thing we don’t have a lot of those floating around Canada. You spin the wrench, i’ll handle “quality control”.

Diversity is the code word for the destruction of democratic countries.

And don’t forget, it’s not a single position it’s AN ENTIRE F-ING OFFICE. Gosh, I wonder where all those billions Justin is borrowing in our name are going…oh, right, ‘social infrastructure’. Well, thank God for that.

Boy, how about all those times leftists got shut down for doing all sorts of hi-jinks to push a narrative, sometimes even hateful to people who are Christian or Jewish, on campuses? Oh, wait, that literally NEVER has happened. Who knew universities had become seats of pure tyranny? Oh and just what in the flying, back flip F is the ,“diversity office”? Who works there and, more importantly, what are they getting paid a year and what kind of a pension do they have? Do they nap on their own, or school time?
