Ignorant Bigots Running Universities Now

The spread of bigoted racism and displays of abysmal ignorance at what are supposed to be centers of learning in the United States and Britain is saddening and appears to be out of control. In recent days, displays of that inverted racism and bigotry, including outbreaks of anti-Semitism and animosity toward the memory of Cecil Rhodes, the wealthy mining magnate who initiated Rhodes Scholarships, have been exhibited at Oxford University and Oberlin College. Now the bigotry is being inflated in nonsensical fashion again at Oxford, joined by absurd protestors from Royal Holloway College, London in March madness.

    I still feel that this can be stopped easily enough through the official exercise of the power of the purse.

    I am sick and tires of hearing of the evils of Cecil Rhodes. My best friend is Guyanese Indian, descended from indentured labourers. His uncle was a Rhodes Scholar, plucked out of the back woods of Guyana and sent to England to get what was then the best education money could buy. He used the opportunity to make the most he could of his life and didn’t regret it for a second.

    The good thing is that these people are very easy to troll. Start a group calling for the extermination of all humans, or one calling for the elevation of barnyard animals to tenured professors. There’s a 90% chance you could get this very far.
