Just in case you were thinking it’s only American colleges and universities that have been built up into fortresses for the defense of idiocy, here’s a howler from one of the most ancient and respected universities of them all–Cambridge, in England.
One of the Cambridge University colleges was all set to have a costume party, with a theme of Around the World in 80 Days, when whining petulant ninnies forced its cancellation–on the grounds that dressing up in costumes of other lands is “cultural appropriation” and therefor “racist” ( http://www.breitbart.com/london/2016/03/11/cambridge-students-cancel-around-the-world-in-80-days-themed-party-due-to-cultural-appropriation/ ).
Sorry, kiddies, no costume party. If you get dressed up in a sari or something, you will traumatize some poor fragile nitwit, violating his or her safe space and committing microaggression by doing something he or she doesn’t like.
I defy you to propose any activity that won’t be called “racist” on any college campus anywhere in the Western world.
I mean, who even cares whether some college students have a costume party? What kind of life is this, obsessing over trivial things that a normal person wouldn’t even notice, just because it feels so good to be offended?
And there, I think, we’ve solved a mystery.
These people get off on being offended. Having discarded the true and living God, and stumbled into self-worship, they now demand to be shown fear and deference that they have never shown to God Himself.
If they had to go a day without being offended, their heads would probably explode.
