Deplorable: Gender Studies Prof Rips Down 9/11 Memorial Posters

By Rick Pearcey • September 12, 2016, 09:50 AM

Peter van Voorhis reports at Campus Reform:

Students told Campus Reform that the perpetrator was Margot Lovett, a gender studies and humanities professor who has a history of controversial actions on campus. Notably, OC Weekly reported in 2001 that she had promulgated a statement by the Black Radical Congress to her colleagues blaming "U.S. Imperialism" for the 9/11 attacks.

"After ripping down the posters, video footage of the incident reveals that the professor came over to tell the students that they were not allowed to put up posters on that part of campus, because it was not a free speech zone," Voorhis reports.

This professor's actions reflect hatred for human freedom and dignity, including the freedom to speak your mind on campus and the dignity to advocate for your principles in public places.

No one would deny this professor's unalienable right to free speech. A free society, however, in no way can allow her to trample upon that very same freedom when affirmed and practiced by those with whom she disagrees.

The professor may be unaware of it, but she has intrinsic dignity because she is made -- and factually knowably so -- in the image of God. Her actions are deplorable because they war against that image.

Her actions are an attack on the freedom and dignity of the human being as human being.

If allowed to reach their natural theoretical and practical conclusions, her political correctness would result in great and gross inhumanity (for example, see the Soviet gulag, Pol Pot's killing fields, the socialist concentration camps of the Nazis, America's abortion industry, and more).

I wish the professor had left that sign alone. Let it stand. Let it speak. Be thankful, and glory in, the fact that you are human being.

"Open Rebellion": Trump Is Winning the War on Political Correctness

By Rick Pearcey • January 7, 2016, 08:27 AM

Jeffrey Lord writes at American Spectator:

Donald Trump has declared war on political correctness. And suddenly the Washington Post realizes Trump is winning the war.

This is a war that could not be won soon enough. To borrow from one of history’s terms for World War II, the war on political correctness is "the good war."

Why is Trump winning and hit the "proverbial political jackpot"? "Polls show the fury at political correctness goes across the political spectrum and is resented by large numbers of both whites and blacks," Lord writes.

Lord zeroes in on Trump's method: "He takes a subject that has about it 'elephant in the room' qualities -- something that's right there but no one wants to address because it's too sensitive."

And then, "breaking all the PC rules," Trump "turns the spotlight on the elephant -- and everyone gasps in disbelief. What follows next is endless conversation about the elephant -- with Trump leading the way. And winning support as a direct result."

Lord notes that political correctness is a form of totalitarianism "that has descended on all manner of 'ordinary' Americans" who "can see it every day in their own lives -- and they don’t like it. In fact they detest it."

For example, "they read the story of Major Nidal Hassan" (the American Islamic terrorist who murdered 13 and wounded 32 U.S. soldiers at Ft. Hood, Texas, in 2009), and they "understand instantly how all those American soldiers on American soil wound up mass murdered -- because of political correctness."

It's "offensive," you see, to question a person's religion. Feathers were not ruffled. Real-world result: mass murder.

Americans "don't like it," Lord continues. "In fact, with Trump leading the way, they are now in open rebellion against it. Which goes exactly to the Washington Post's amazed realization of just 'Why Trump may be winning the war on 'political correctness'."

"He is winning," Lord concludes. "It's a war that cannot be won soon enough."
