Right at the end of the Cultural Revolution, my father was invited to China to talk to Mao. While there, he got in a fight with Madame Mao over her dictate that he and my mom sleep in separate beds. He refused and demanded a double bed. She said, ‘Nixon didn’t complain last week when he slept here!’ And my wonderful dad said, ‘But I happen to love MY wife!’ He got his double bed when Chou Enlai intervened. Now, this sexual PC harassment in China is happening in the US over specific issues: sex and race. Students are on the march and are firing and intimidating professors and others. It is getting rapidly out of hand.
Jennifer Scharf, who has been offering the weekly yoga class at the University of Ottawa campus for seven years, said she was notified in September that the program was being ended.
In an email from the Center for Students with Disabilities, staff wrote that while yoga is ‘accessible and great for students’, there are ‘cultural issues of implication involved in the practice’, the Ottawa Sun reported.
This is from Canada. The spread of this insane PC garbage is destroying internationalism. No one can dare say or do anything in fear of PC police screaming bloody murder over the most innocent remarks or actions. Meanwhile, others will up the ante and deliberately provoke the PC police by painting swastikas, yelling racist stuff.
The professors are trapped. Students want to ‘discuss’ stuff but don’t want anyone to really talk about anything anymore. They fly off the handle instead of having a rational discussion. This is called ‘bullying’ and it is killing our educational system.
I was in the middle of my generation doing this. In the sixties, I was fairly prominent in the student movements in both Europe and the US and gave speeches. But beginning in 1969, the far far leftists decided to silence me. At a huge meeting in Oakland that year, when it was my turn to speak, a bunch of these Maoists rioted and yelled to shut me down while others yelled back and the rally fell apart.
After that, I was disinvited to these events. The Maoists hated me because I made fun of them. They were all nuts and committed grave terrorist crimes in the end. I was friends with some of the founders of the Black Panthers in Oakland until then when their leadership went south with the Mao stuff and members were punished if they talked to me.
All these people ended up either dead or in prison or fleeing the country (to Cuba in two cases). Well, the same stuff is happening on campuses today minus the Mao stuff thanks to Chinese people throwing out Madame Mao after her monster husband died!
These new ‘baby Maoists’ are hard at work now censoring everyone over the tiniest infractions: Two in five millennials think the US government should censor ‘offensive’ public statements | Daily Mail Online (see the graphs below):
Quenette, who is 33 and has been teaching at the university for two years, said that diversity in the classroom was on the syllabus, and a student asked how they could talk about race issues in their own classes. The conversation then shifted to how the university should address racial problems.
She said she pointed out that racist incidents on other campuses, including the University of Missouri’s Columbia campus, have been very visible, and used the slur when comparing the University of Kansas to the other incidents…
Quenette said she could have apologized ‘in the moment’ if anyone had responded, but no one did, so she continued the discussion.
‘I didn’t intend to offend anyone, I didn’t intend to hurt anyone. I didn’t direct my words at any individual or group of people,’ she said on Friday.
‘It was an open conversation about a serious issue that is affecting our campus, and it will affect our teachers. In that regard, I consider it within my purview … to talk about those issues.’
But Amy Schumacher, a first-year doctoral student who was in the class of nine white students and one black student, said most ‘just shut down’ after Quenette’s using the slur.
The poor professor wasn’t cussing, she was using the word as an EXAMPLE. Note how these junior Maoists sat SILENT after she used the magic word and didn’t say a peep to her but left the room quietly and then yelled at the administration! Who chickened out.
This is because these pathetic students are being milked for massive amounts of debt money and will be enslaved by this debt for the rest of their lives and they are racking up this massive debt taking classes in subjects where the number of jobs are vanishing or being severely restricted, pay wise.
Foolish kids think they will have jobs as PROFESSORS after taking these loopy classes and terrorizing their own professors into being sheepishly delicate and frightened of students.
The exaggerated blow up in Missouri which punished professors and removed Presidents has led to the Maoist faction into full steam ahead attacks on free speech, modern education, simple civility and is rapidly turning our already dangerously devouring campuses into battle zones where nothing will be learned and nothing works.
That is, we get a fine repeat of the late 1960’s. But back then, we were protesting the Vietnam War and it exploded when student deferments were ended. And we were still adjusting to the Civil Rights Act changes but again, it all went way, way overboard and like in China, ended up attacking perfectly fine people and smearing them, etc.
I was attacked by these Maoists hammer and sickle. They hated my speeches and hated my guts because I made fun of them. They were vicious people who hated humans and this reminds me of global warmists who want to freeze us all to death because of their belief system, ouch. Very Maoist. Nasty form of puritanism.
