This reads like a satire, but it isn’t.
The Council of Chief Diversity Officers (“Say it ain’t so. Joe!” “I’m afraid it is, kid”) for the University of California has issued a “guidance document” to tell students and staff how to talk about the Chinese Wuhan Communist Death Virus–
Oops. I wasn’t allowed to say that, was I?
Students and staff are forbidden to say “Chinese virus” and enjoined, “Do not allow”–allow? allow?–others to say it, either (http://freerepublic.com/focus/f-chat/3830546/posts). All are directed to be “supportive of a positive and inclusive campus climate during the COVID-19 crisis.” ‘Cause everything’s got to be inclusive, don’t you know.
No criticizing Red China, either. Well, the Chicoms have invested heavily in our colleges and looniversities. No biting the hand that feeds you. Even if it feeds you virus.
Oh! And staff and students are warned to steer clear of “racism, sexism, xenophobia and all hateful or intolerant speech.” You can still say “All heterosexual white males should die.”
Really! How does anybody with an ounce of self-respect manage to live in such an environment? College used to be for expanding your mind. Now it’s for shrinking it. Sort of like that vanishing white dot on your black TV screen when your power gets cut off. How can anybody with an ounce of pride consent to be lorded over by such a pack of babbling nitwits?
And pay a lot of money for it, too!
