Campus culture: Fall of the Soviet Union in reverse

From Derek Hunter at Townhall:

I didn’t graduate college all that long ago, (December 2000, to be exact), but the culture on campuses has changed so dramatically in those years that it’s akin to when the Soviet Union fell, only in reverse.

Still, there is no place closer to a totalitarian police state in the United States than the college campus. Except, perhaps, public high schools.

Even if parents were to attend occasional classes, the propaganda would be difficult to notice. That’s how indoctrination into left-wing ideology works – like Chinese water torture, one drop at a time. More.

Reality check: There is a certain macabre fascination with the fact that the snowflake offspring of virtue-signalling progressives will likely be  subtly indoctrinated into anti-Semitism. But it’s the very nature of progressivism to turn on those who gave it life, alongside various road kill such as actual opponents. Put another way, Donald Trump probably has less to fear from progressive ideology than its Jewish adherents do.

People Are Actually Mad That Wonder Woman Gal Gadot Has No Armpit Hair

When we look back at the great social justice struggles of 2017, surely, neigh certainly, the cause of putting armpit hair on fictional women will top the list.

Feminists Attack CNN For ‘Future of Media’ Plan Featuring Only Men

Activists were riled up by the image of CEO Jeff Zucker and four of its top presenters posing for a cover feature for The Hollywood Reporter.

In the article, Zucker boasts about the network’s ratings, its dominance online, the amount of cash it is funnelling into future projects, and all the hot new talent it’s hiring.

According to images of the event obtained by Campus Reform, members of the Womyn’s Center dubbed the activity “Wac-a-Trump,” attaching a list of their grievances with the new administration to the Trump-dummy.

Lena Dunham Hails ‘Political Strength’ of Liberal Women, Fears Trump ‘Xenophobia’

In a friendly chat with actress and left-wing activist Lena Dunham on Friday’s NBC Today, substitute co-host Maria Shriver lobbed one softball after another while promoting the final season of HBO’s Girls. Dunham, in turn, praised liberal young women for practicing “identity politics” and denounced the “xenophobia” of the Trump administration.

Shriver began the exchange by fawning over Dunham’s explicit show coming to an end: “So final season going in, you’ve said a lot over the years. What do you want to say this year that you haven’t been able to say?…what do you want it to have stood for, what do you want the headline of it to be?”
