Male. Female. Illegal Alien.
These words are matter-of-fact descriptions. They are absolutes. Male and Female are what all humans on this planet are born as. A person in this country that is not a citizen and here unlawfully or without authorization is an Illegal alien. These are facts. These are truths. But uttering the truth at Washington State University could affect your entire future.
The tax-payers should know that they are now funding the attack on truth. According to this recent campus reform article, multiple professors at Washington State University has threatened to fail students if they use those three words or voice additional sentiments that they deem “oppressive and hateful”.
Two such classes that silence the student’s 1st amendment as well as seek to re-program the students are Selena Lester Breikss’ “Women & Popular Culture” and Rebecca Fowler’s “Introduction to Comparative Ethnic Studies”
Under Breikss’ dictatorship, the punishment for using the “banned” words includes but is “not limited to removal from the class without attendance or participation points, failure of the assignment, and— in extreme cases— failure for the semester.”
In Fowler’s class, the students will lost one point every time they use the words “illegal alien” or “illegals”. Fowler instead wants the students to use the phrase “undocumented migrants/immigrants/persons”. Fowler says that in her course students will “come to recognize how white privilege functions in everyday social structures and institutions.”
In an even more extreme version of censorship and outright racism, Professor John Streamas expects the white students in his “Introduction to Multicultural Literature” class to “defer” to non-white students if they want “to do well in this class”. Streamas had previously been mired in a controversy for making racist remarks about one of his students.
Washington State University’s actions are a scary view into the progressive movement sweeping the country, the intolerance that they preach, the truth they try to ban, and their effort to silence anyone that doesn’t accept their skewed principals or views.
The outrage for WSU’s actions should be deafening! Do you agree? Or do you think these professors are doing the right thing?
