Fox News: Incoming freshmen at one Massachusetts university are supposed to do more than pay tuition and study — they are now being officially told to become social justice warriors. The latest guidelines at the public University of Massachusetts Amherst instruct students “to create change toward social justice” and to hold “attitudes which value cultural differences.” Colleges have long tried to foster good citizenship among their charges, but Amherst’s approach has drawn criticism – including from faculty – for codifying left-wing indoctrination.
“This has happened over the past 30 years, with ever more brazen efforts to control not only language, but also attitudes and thoughts,” Daphne Patai, a UMass Amherst professor who specializes in Brazilian literature and who opposes the guidelines, told FoxNews.com. The guidelines describe mandatory diversity classes at the college, which are required for the more than 22,000 students enrolled there.
Asked for comment, a university spokesman said that asking students to work for “social justice” is not about politics.
“Diversity-related courses should encourage students to value cultural differences, recognize inequalities and injustices, and integrate that knowledge with critical thinking skills to address societal problems as they might choose, but [is] not based on any particular political or philosophical point of view,” spokesman Ed Blaguszewski said in a statement. Blaguszewski says the university defines it as “the differences between people that may lead to disadvantages or advantages in access.”
See that? That’s the root of the problem right there. Adults are teaching students that “social justice” is something they are REQUIRED to fight for. Any time you see the words “social justice” or “value cultural differences,” don’t be fooled. It has nothing to do with either of those things. These are just code words that hippies can use to censor other people. Milo Yiannopoulos, Steven Crowder, and Christina Hoff-Sommers stand for policies that dimwitted 20 year olds believe run contrary to social justice. Therefore students have a moral obligation to silence them. After all, the University they attend has not only taught them this, they have actively encouraged them.
Just check out the “Women, Gender, And Sexual Studies” Department at UMass. Let’s take a look at who is teaching the next generation of butthurt losers and some of the classes they teach:
Monogamy: Queer Feminism and the Politics of Social Belonging. That sounds like a useful class that will transfer over valuable skills to real world applications.
Only at UMass could you sign up for a class called “Black Queer Feminisms,” then go to lunch and head to another class called “Gender and Genre in African Diaspora Literature.”
Ahh yes, “Transnational Approach to Queer and Sexuality Studies.” Because I’ve already taken plenty of classes on various approaches to queer and sexuality studies, but I’ve never really the transnational aspects of it.
Introduction to Biology of Difference? Sounds transphobic to me!!!
How can anyone graduate from college without familiarizing themselves with Feminism and Fashion in the African Diaspora? Apparently this class “explores how and why black women in places as far-flung as New York City, Atlanta, London and Johannesburg incorporated style and beauty culture into their activism.” You can basically get any job you want if that’s on your resume.
Yup, I know if I take a class on “sexuality studies” I want it to be taught by Granny Warren’s older sister.
Wait, I’m confused. First she teaches a class on Transnational Women’s Economic and Political Activisms, and then later on she teaches a class about “Unthinking the Transnational” that she just taught about in the first class? I’m confused. I think I’ll just sign up for the Theorizing Black Feminisms class.
Ahhh yes, a class about “Whiteness.” That sounds like a valuable use of your time. Here’s some highlights from the syllabus:
See that? She’s teaching students that white privilege and white supremacy are real things. They’re not theories or opinions. They are fact. She’s not showing them any other opinions that run contrary to these things. Thus the army of social justice warriors believes that anyone who doesn’t subscribe to this fantasy world is practicing hate speech and encouraging white supremacy.
Queer Transnational Feminist Cultural Studies. This is a class at UMass.
Oh good, she’s done research in “postcolonial feminist marxist critiques of development.” Because I don’t want Turtleboy Jr. to have a teacher who isn’t well versed in postcolonial feminist marxist critiques of development.
This woman is the department head:
Oh good, more transnational feminisms. You can never have enough of that. Laura Briggs has said some interesting things on her Twitter too. For instance, she adamantly supported the rights of Baltimore protesters to riot and destroy the property of other innocent black people as she cheered them on from her life of privilege in Western Massachusetts:

She actively campaigns to lower the rates that prisoners are charged on pay phones in jail:

She thinks Saturday Night Live isn’t diverse enough:

She wants you to “shout your abortion”
this is sexism: if women get pregnant if poor or unmarried they are stupid sluts, but abortion is always a tragedy? #ShoutYourAbortion

She talks about the importance of being a “butch bull dagger muff diver”:

She blames white people who don’t like Baltimore District Attorney Marilyn Mosby who irresponsibly charged six police officers in the death of Freddie Gray (none of which will end up in convictions)
Now shall we speak of the pathology of white people, as the backlash against #MarilynMosby sets in?

She doesn’t want cops in schools, even though she’s never taught in one:

She supported racist Boston University Professor Saida Grundy:

Even after Saida Grundy tweeted all this racist stuff:
But perhaps the biggest joke of all is that Laura Briggs doesn’t think her whiny students are coddled brats like the rest of society does. She thinks they have plenty to be angry about:
Enough already about coddled students! They have plenty to be angry about. https://t.co/NHQzZLITCQ

And did I mention that she gets paid $144,000 a year to teach a bunch of pointless classes that are utterly useless in the real world?
But just like many in her line of work she blames evil banks for the high cost of college tuition. Meanwhile she’s getting paid all this money and driving up the cost of tuition.
Don’t you get it yet? Don’t ya see? This is where college kids get these insane ideas from. They are growing up in the greatest country on earth and life is pretty Goddamn good, but their professors are convincing them that they are oppressed and must fight for social justice. And anyone who isn’t fighting for their moronic view of what social justice is, must be censored and/or destroyed.
These people are the real reason that Trigglypuff and Jennie Chenkin are the way they are. Because they are sick and need help, but instead of helping them this army of morons is using them in their never ending battle for political correctness.
