Looking at more of the Special Snowflakes in what passes for academia these days...

Elsewhere (194)

Quote:
Heather Mac Donald pokes at the ongoing rot of academia:
Earlier this week, several dozen Emory students barged into the school’s administration building to demand protection from “Trump 2016” slogans that had been written in chalk on campus walkways. Acting out a by-now standardised psychodrama of oppression and vulnerability, the students claimed that seeing Trump’s name on the sidewalk confirmed that they were “unsafe” at Emory. College sophomore Jonathan Peraza led the allegedly traumatised students in a chant: “You are not listening! Come speak to us, we are in pain!” As the Emory protesters entered the administration building, they drew on the Communist Manifesto to express their pitiable plight: “It is our duty to fight for our freedom. It is our duty to win. We must love each other and support each other. We have nothing to lose but our chains.”
Oddly, the chalk marks made by certain other groups did not induce similar fits of theatrical weeping.

So, let's look at what happens when Progressivism invades school lunches!

Feds to Fine Schools for Not Following Michelle Obama’s Lunch Rules

Quote:
The federal government is taking steps to fine schools that do not comply with first lady Michelle Obama’s school lunch rules.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food and Nutrition Service issued a proposed rule Monday to codify parts of the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act, which was championed by Mrs. Obama.

The regulation would punish schools and state departments with fines for “egregious or persistent disregard” for the lunch rules that imposed sodium and calorie limits and banned white grains.

A West Virginia preschool teacher was threatened with fines for violating the rules by rewarding her students with candy for good behavior in June 2015.
OK. So, what's the food & portion sizes like?

Quote:
Desperate students are still taking to Twitter to reveal the horrors of school lunch under First Lady Michelle Obama’s rules, including empty chicken nuggets and complaints that meals taste like “prison food.”

While the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) raves about “locally sourced chicken sandwiches” that meet nutrition standards served in a school district in South Carolina, students across the country complain about what they are eating under the new rules.

“My poor little sister has to eat prison food #ThanksMichelleObama,” one student tweeted on Friday.

Students are unhappy about their “chickpea sliders” and whole grain pizza, mandated by the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act, which was championed by Mrs. Obama. The USDA has a 33-page guide—complete with flow charts—telling schools how they can meet the whole grain requirements.
More:

Quote:
Many students complain about meager portions. One student was served only a plate of nachos with a side of coffee-flavored fat-free milk.

“This is not anywhere near enough….” tweeted another, with a picture of an unidentified piece of mystery meat.

“WHAT IS THIS!??!,?!!?” a student tweeted about their meat serving. Examples of questionable meat servings are numerous.

...

Unappetizing selections also include “soggy rice” and rotten fruit. Students tweet pictures of rotting pears, “Chris Brown-ified” bananas, and nasty oranges.

...

Meager portions are a common complaint about the standards. A school in Texas served tacos with barely any meat in them. Parents said the meat filled the size of a “thimble.”

“I first thought it had to be a mistake or the kids were messing around. And then when he told me that’s all we got, it’s just a little shocking,” said one parent of a high school student in Burleson, Texas.

“Any reasonable person can see there’s not enough meat on that taco,” an administrator said.
Mmmm, nummers.

And, as a matter of interest, what are Michelle's daughters having for lunch?

PHOTOS: Here’s What Obama’s Daughters Get for THEIR School Lunch… It’s Infuriating

Ya s'pose there's any salt in that?

More Progressivism on campus.

In a nutshell, this black female was offended by this white guy wearing dreads, accuses him of "cultural appropriation", harasses & grabs him.

Video of Black Female College Student Harassing (And Grabbing) White Male Student Over His Wearing of Dreadlocks Goes Viral; College Allegedly Investigating the Incident

Quote:
"Do not put your hands on me," she demands, as he tries to pry her hands off of him while she drags him into a corner to further harass him.
Oh, I so want someone to try this with me. Maybe I should turn my ponytail into a dread...

Further on the Special Snowflakes from Emory.

Apparently, some Emory alumni don't exactly agree with all that's going on...

Emory President Chalks Pro-Speech Message After Trump Controversy as Students, Alumni Urge More Action

Quote:
Separately, a group of Emory alumni have begun circulating an open letter asking their alma mater to officially recommit to free expression. The letter, co-authored by Matthew Walker, ’07, and Ed Thayer, ’05, is posted on the group’s Facebook page, Concerned Emory Alumni. The letter calls for “President Wagner and the full administrative body of Emory University to publicly acknowledge the intrinsic value of free speech and the right of all to engage in spirited political debate”:

No longer does Emory University serve as a beacon of intellectual diversity attracting some of the best and brightest young adults from across the world, much as it attracted us. Instead, Emory has become just another school in the well-documented pattern of universities that have surrendered to the demands of a vocal few that emotional comfort, ideological conformity and yes, “safe environments” trump fundamental notions of free speech. Critical thinking and exposure to other opinions are unwanted. But this does not have to be how the story ends. It is vitally important that we respond to this trend by reaffirming our foundational notions of freedom. Unfortunately, President Wagner and Emory University have thus far failed to rise to the challenge.


Walker, the letter’s co-author, told FIRE that as an Emory undergrad, being able to discuss sometimes divisive political issues with friends who disagreed with him was an important part of his education.

“It was always [a] great, friendly, challenging discussion that really taught you to critically think,” Walker said, noting the discussions helped to both hone his political opinions and prepare him for his career as an attorney. “I took that with me to law school where I was challenged more on my viewpoints. It’s really important to understand the opposing side and their arguments, where they’re coming from, and to form your own opinions. It’s formative. And it’s absolutely required, in my opinion, at the university level.
M'bold.

Thing is, facts have never been much of an issue for Progressives. They've got FB, Twitter, hashtags & MSM to control the narrative. Facts aren't required...

So, what happens when you play an April Fool's joke on a Special Snowflake?

Stanford snowflakes meltdown over April Fools’ joke mocking leftist campus ‘demands’

Quote:
The conservative-leaning Stanford Review took a stab at poking fun of all the “demand” lists campus activists nationwide have lodged with administrators in recent months — including at Stanford — to have a little fun this April Fools’ Day.

They nailed it:

Stanford University has repeatedly failed to address systematic issues on campus. We, the Students of the Stanford Review, have seen our voices silenced, our rights trampled, and our experiences ignored. Not once has an administrator inquired as to the relative health of our feelings – the system is broken! We, the Students of the Stanford Review, DEMAND change.

WE DEMAND that Stanford builds a wall around El Centro Chicano, and makes MEChA pay for it.

WE DEMAND that Stanford expels Panda Express from campus, since its food is culturally appropriative, and celebrates the harvesting of the endangered panda bear.

WE DEMAND that Stanford renames White Plaza to Black Plaza. Naming a central plaza after a race is hateful.

WE DEMAND that Stanford recognizes that half-lives matter, and establishes a committee to fund the Chemistry and Physics Departments accordingly.

WE DEMAND that Stanford’s Classics Department end its disgusting and exploitative profiteering off the lived experiences of ancient Greeks and Romans.

WE DEMAND that swimming pools be abolished at Stanford, since their blueness shows implicit support for the Israeli flag, further dehumanizing the Palestinian people.

We DEMAND that Stanford ends its use of European languages, since they are inherently colonialist. We recommend Xhosa, Zulu, and interpretive dance as alternatives for person-to-person communication.

WE DEMAND that Stanford’s Applied Quantitative Reasoning requirement not be fulfilled by cis-linear algebra. The experiences of marginalized matrices have been ignored for too long.
BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

Brilliant!

Except, the Special Snowflakes didn't appreciate the humour:

Quote:
Perhaps not surprisingly, Stanford snowflakes had a meltdown, according to comments on the website, on Facebook, and among various student body listservs (copies of which were provided to The College Fix):
Screw 'em...

I can't tell if this is satire or not. If it is, it's brilliant. If not, just another crystal example of the Special Snowflakes...

We just showed up at the meeting room and this was on the floor. Intentionally obv. Lots of pretty shaken up folk.

More Special Snowflakes!

American flag called “unacceptable political statement” at Harvard

Quote:
"My friend — who’s a freshman — on the first day of college took out an American flag from his suitcase, and his roommate stopped him, saying that the presence of the flag on the wall was a political statement that he was unwilling to make,” Harvard University student Rachel Huebner recently told Fox News.

You can’t make this stuff up, folks.
Time to find a new school & a new roommate...

And one more...

University student is ordered not to put her hand up to ask a question because she would be violating her classmates' 'safe space'

Quote:
A student was almost kicked out of a meeting after she violated a 'safe space' by raising her arm at Edinburgh University.

Imogen Wilson wanted to make a point at Thursday's student council session when she was told off by officials.

The vice-president for academic affairs at the university's Student Association was accused of failing disabled students by not responding to an open letter.

She immediately raised her arm to disagree but was made the subject of a 'ludicrous' complaint and told not to make the gesture again.

Imogen was also warned for shaking her head during the meeting as it again breached the 'safe space' which is part of the university's Student Association rules.
I can hardly wait for my children to come home with stories like this. And, while it's unlikely that they'll choose to be "Hahvahd Bastahds", this is just another shining example of the pestilence coursing throughout not only post-secondary institutions but primary & secondary schools, as well.

This is what happens when Progressivism meets law enforcement.

Canadian police: 'Unnecessary' social media posts may be illegal

Quote:
Well, it appears that whatever freedoms of speech remained in Canada's largest province are dead – at least if the provincial police have their way.

The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) sent out the following tweet on February 9, 2016: "T.H.I.N.K. b4 u post ... T - is it True ... H - is it hurtful ... I - is it illegal ... N - is it necessary ... K - is it kind #SID2016" with a poster attached:

...


Of course, the only letter that should be of relevance is "I" for illegal.

And what is illegal is for the police force anywhere in Canada to intentionally or negligently misrepresent the state of the law to the public. That is exactly what the OPP did with this poster that was sent out via the force's official Twitter feed, which attached a professionally made poster that includes the official OPP logo. It's a classic case of bringing the administration of justice into disrepute if there ever was one.
M'bold.

Oh, & just in case anybody missed it in Social class:

Quote:
Referring to the Charter of Rights and Freedoms within the Canadian constitution, section 2 unequivocally states that "[e]veryone has the following fundamental freedoms: ... (b) freedom of thought, belief, opinion and expression, including freedom of the press and other media of communication." Under no condition has whether or not "opinion and expression" is "necessary" been construed in any form by any court in the land as a criteria for limiting the freedom of opinion and expression under the Canadian constitution.
M'bold.
