Miss Pradhan told the College newspaper, The Ithaca Voice, that the system would “make Ithaca College a safer, more inclusive and diverse community for all students.” Methinks Miss Pradhan has a promising career ahead of her in politics.
The bill as passed by the Student Government Association leaves the definition of "microaggression" to the subjective judgment of the (anonymous) plaintive. If it offends you that I shrug my shoulders and arch my eyebrows when you spout liberal nonsense in a conversation, is that microaggression? How about if I just turn my back and walk away from your ignorance-and-propaganda induced drivel? It would seem that anything that offends anyone could qualify as microaggression. And doesn't the anonymity of the accuser open the possibility for misuse of the system to harass and malign with impunity an ex-boyfriend or a professor you don't like?
Furthermore, the bill contains no definition of "privileged group" or of "unprivileged group," leaving it up to the enforcers of the law to decide. ('Sound like something the US Congress might do?) As a White male, I can logically claim to be a member of an unprivileged group because my privileges to choose my own health insurance plan and my own doctor and my privilege to spend the money I work for the way I want to spend it have been severely curtailed by the government, along with a host of my other privileges.
And why include the phrases in the bill at all? Would it not be possible for a member of an "unprivileged" group to commit microaggression against a member of a "privileged" group? Could it be that inclusion of the phrases is a Freudian slip that betrays the true motivation behind this incentive – the de-privileging of the "privileged class?"
This is pure unadulterated Communism a la Joseph Stalin. The next step will be the installation of secret "block captains" in each dormitory and in each classroom to monitor and report "crimethink" to a thought-police commissariat.
And these kids did not learn this communistic drivel from their parents, who are obviously members of the so-called "privileged class" or their kids wouldn't be attending Ithaca College in the first place. The diseducational system in America today is part of a concerted effort to reduce America to a grey homogeneity of comrades like that enjoyed by the citizens of Russia and Cuba, in which no one is allowed to be rich and all are forced to be poor.
This is the "fundamental change" promised by Obama in 2008 – the fundamental change of a successful, vibrant, innovative culture to a gray dystopia of government dependent and government controlled human automatons.
Hitler demonstrated the power of education to transform rational young people into rabid idealists. And it still works today. Remember that the most dangerous man in the world, George Soros, was himself indoctrinated with the "open society" concept by professor Karl Popper at the London School of Economics. And don't forget that the second most dangerous person in the world, Hillary Clinton, was transformed from a conservative republican to a rabid Democrat by indoctrination in Saul Alinsky's apostasy at Wellesley College.
