As part of mandatory “diversity training” (barf bag, please), students at the University of Oklahoma are compelled to say what the “trainers” want them to say, in order to complete the course (https://www.campusreform.org/article?id=17627). For instance, your responses to questions must show total approval of all things “transgender.”
The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) has tried to reach a compromise by asking the looniversity to make the program optional instead of compulsory–well, you can guess how far they’ve gotten with that. The villains have rejected any compromise; so probably the only way to restore a semblance of liberty to the campus is to win a lawsuit.
Where is it written that as soon as you enroll in college, you lose your First Amendment rights? All of a sudden they can compel you to say what they want to hear? As if you were a parrot?
And I hope this puts to rest the idea that just because your school is located in a Red state, it’s immune to Far Left Crazy.
Defund the universities.
And stop sending your kids there to have their brains sucked out.
Which was what Shawnee State Looniversity tried to do to a philosophy professor: knuckle under or lose your job. They got it past a district court, but the Sixth Circuit reversed that ruling.
I mean, really–what value has the First Amendment if they can make you say things you believe to be not only untrue, but wicked according to your religion? Whose idea of “freedom” is that? [Hint: a liberal’s.]
So now the professor can sue Shawnee State for damages, and let’s pray he sets them back a bundle. Because this must stop.
What else are they going to try to make you say, once they’ve got the “trans” nailed down? They heap abomination on top of abomination, and still expect to prosper.
But I don’t call losing our freedom (to say nothing of our dignity!) prospering.

The Ontario Bar Assn. is now demanding compelled speech–things you must say, whether you believe in them or not, if you want to practice law. They’ll even provide you with a “template” to follow, so that you can sign your name to the kind of “statement of principles” that they require. In true Great Cultural Revolution style, signers must admit to “unconscious bias.” One wonder how anyone’s self-respect can survive this.
Meanwhile, the Ontario Human Rights Commission, the orcs from OHRC, demand “compelled usage of non-gendered pronouns” at all the universities, so as to avoid any “mental pain” on the part of “transgendered persons”–which is equated with “violence.”
Don’t bother to sneer at Canada. Leftids in our country toil ceaselessly to do the same to us in the United States: and what’s more, they’re doing it. Wait’ll the Supreme Court rules you have to take part in a “gay wedding” even if it violates your religious beliefs. Wait’ll they start dictating the content of all kinds of works of art, not just one-of-a-kind wedding cakes.
These indignities are imposed on us by persons who see themselves as gods.
May the Lord our God deliver us out of their hands, and give us strength and courage to resist them. And defeat them.
