In the state of Texas? Yep… And you wonder why the races are as divided as ever with Universities printing bigoted crap like this?
University campuses are becoming more and more an absolutely toxic environment of far left liberalism. These indoctrination centers are going completely off the rails pushing their social agendas.
Fox News reports that in 2017, colleges and universities have offered some rather insane course offerings. Remember, people are paying big bucks to take these classes. For example, at the University of Kentucky, your tuition can get you a course in “Vampires: Evolution of a Sexy Monster.” Curriculum objectives include answering such important questions as “What is a vampire? Where do they come from?” Williams College offers a course in “Racial Capitalism.” This course teaches “the ways in which capitalist economies have ‘always and everywhere’ relied upon forms of racist domination and exclusion.”
If you are a conservative, researching the best college can be very tough. Even in solid red states like Texas, you will find radical left ideology.
Campusreform.org is a watchdog group that exposes bias on college campuses. Last month, they exposed an op-ed published in Texas State University’s student newspaper, The University Star. The op-ed, written by student Rudy Martinez, is a racist tirade against white students.
The article is full of hate. Martinez writes “When I think of all the white people I’ve ever encountered—whether they’ve been professors, peers, lovers, friends, police officers, et cetera—there is perhaps only a dozen I would consider ‘decent.” “Through the current political climate, in which a white supremacist inhabits the White House and those of his ilk would try to prove otherwise, I see white people as an aberration.” “Through a constant, ideological struggle in which we aim to deconstruct ‘whiteness’ and everything attached to it, we will win.” He tells white people, “your DNA is an abomination.”
And then there is the icing on the racist cake:
“Remember this: I hate you because you shouldn’t exist,” he concludes. “You are both the dominant apparatus on the planet and the void in which all other cultures, upon meeting you, die.”
Once again we have a “tolerant” leftist spewing hate, and not even because of an ideological difference, but because of the way someone was BORN! I know hypocrisy is widespread and I know we are all getting used to it, but this one shocked even me.
Thankfully, the college did take steps to right their wrong. The Student Body President, Connor Clegg, said he believes the article is an “embarrassment” to his school. He went on to say ““I’m the first person who will stand up for the First Amendment any day of the week, but when students are required to pay into a school paper like this which espouses these racist views, then I certainly think some action needs to be taken against this so-called reporter/columnist.” Ya think?
The paper has since fired Rudy Martinez and removed the op-ed from their website. Still, the fact that the editors let th article run in the first place is concerning. I’m all for the First Amendment, but adding fuel to a racist fire is irresponsible “journalism” for a school paper.
The paradox of tolerance was described by Karl Popper in 1945. The paradox states that if a society is tolerant without limit, their ability to be tolerant will eventually be seized or destroyed by the intolerant. Popper came to the seemingly paradoxical conclusion that in order to maintain a tolerant society, the society must be intolerant of intolerance.
… the paradox of tolerance: Unlimited tolerance must lead to the disappearance of tolerance. If we extend unlimited tolerance even to those who are intolerant, if we are not prepared to defend a tolerant society against the onslaught of the intolerant, then the tolerant will be destroyed, and tolerance with them. — In this formulation, I do not imply, for instance, that we should always suppress the utterance of intolerant philosophies; as long as we can counter them by rational argument and keep them in check by public opinion, suppression would certainly be unwise. But we should claim the right to suppress them if necessary even by force; for it may easily turn out that they are not prepared to meet us on the level of rational argument, but begin by denouncing all argument; they may forbid their followers to listen to rational argument, because it is deceptive, and teach them to answer arguments by the use of their fists or pistols. We should therefore claim, in the name of tolerance, the right not to tolerate the intolerant.
He concluded that we are warranted in refusing to tolerate intolerance: “We should therefore claim, in the name of tolerance, the right not to tolerate the intolerant.”
