    Campus justice today: Salem witch trials

    https://www.nytimes.com/2018/05/30/s...gan-state.html

    From the far right? No, from the New York Times. I regret my vote to agree to the Obama Dept of Justice demands after they investigated University of Montana. It is not upholding the constitution. It is not american jurisprudence. But make no mistake, on campuses all across america, men are being persecuted for using a phrase or comment someine took objection to, and are losing their jobs in what has become the 21st century equivalent of the Salem witch trials.

    Pretty scary. Glad I'm married and 60+. Can't imagine having to navigate the ever-changing social mores of today.
    Cool as a rule, but sometimes bad is bad.

    It is important to see this problem and the many sides of the issue.
    This will be a day longer remembered. It has seen the end of Pitino and will soon see the end of Louisville. September 27, 2017

    Leftism, not liberalism but Leftism, has become a religion, and a very vehement one to boot. As such, it operates by attacking anyone who disagrees with it as a heretic. It doesn't debate their views or engage in discussion, it simply claims that anyone who disagrees is evil and immoral in some way.

    So now if you disagree with anything in the LEftist mantra it's b/c your'e a racist, sexist homophobe. b/c if you weren't you'd obviously agree with them, so by definition that's what you must be if you disagree.

    It's a tidy arrangement, has worked well for the imposition of fascism for millennia.

    On a more regional level it's also humorous b/c these are the same people who bristled like cats when the New Right movement of the 80s was in full swing. They're kissing cousins in terms of methods.

    Worse, any person with a differing point of view “triggers” some far left person who can anonymously complain about their triggered feat and get that more conservative person fired or tossed off campus.

    Exactly. Modern day excommunication. The whole "triggering" and "safe space" thing is brilliant in its concept, the notion that people have a right to not hear things that may upset them or question their views, and if you do you are somehow infringing on them.

    they have in one deft moved completely removed the fundamental notions of freedom of expression and speech from the table.

    The funny and sad part is they can't see that they've become the thing they say they dislike most, totalitarians.
