Today’s award goes to three special snowflakes – if, that is, it’s politically correct to refer to a black person as a ‘snowflake’ – at Pomona College in California. According to The College Fix:
If you want a window into how progressive students are being taught to think at privileged, sheltered campuses, look no further than an open letter to the outgoing president of Pomona College from three self-identified black students.
. . .
Dray Denson, Avery Jonas and Shanaya Stephenson were responding to an April 7 email to the campus community by Oxtoby that criticized the mob tactics that shut down a “Blue Lives Matter” speech.
Oxtoby had written that the administration opposes “the acting of preventing others from engaging with an invited speaker,” in this case the Manhattan Institute’s Heather Mac Donald:
Our mission is founded upon the discovery of truth, the collaborative development of knowledge and the betterment of society.
. . .
Denson, Jonas and Stephenson mocked Oxtoby for his “unnuanced views” that there is such a thing as truth, which is simply a tool of “white supremacy” and is aimed at “silencing oppressed peoples”:
This construction is a myth and white supremacy, imperialism, colonization, capitalism, and the United States of America are all of its progeny. The idea that the truth is an entity for which we must search, in matters that endanger our abilities to exist in open spaces, is an attempt to silence oppressed peoples. … The idea that we must subject ourselves routinely to the hate speech of fascists who want for us not to exist plays on the same Eurocentric constructs that believed Black people to be impervious to pain and apathetic to the brutal and violent conditions of white supremacy.
There’s more at the link. The full text of the snowflakes’ letter may be read here (where it was archived, since the original was – unsurprisingly – taken down after the news broke of its existence. Moonbat snowflakes really don’t like to be exposed for what they are.)
So truth is a “myth”? The USA itself is the “progeny” of that “myth”? In that case, why are these three doofi bothering to get an education in the USA at all? Surely they want to learn outside our borders, where that myth won’t impede their progress? I nominate Cuba, or Venezuela, or North Korea, or Iran. In any of those countries, they can learn the hard way what they’ve got here – but don’t acknowledge or understand. Who knows? They might even come to appreciate the “Land of the Free” for what it really is!
We might shake our heads and laugh, but think about this for a moment: we have high schoolers and jr. high schoolers coming up in this culture. The late elementary students are already indoctrinated, and won't be able to think well enough for themselves for years. We are in a world of hurt.
