No Safe Space for Caucasians

In the book, No Campus for White Men: The Transformation of Higher Education into Hateful Indoctrination,  Scott Greer, an editor and columnist at the Daily Caller, outlined how left-wing identity politics have created today’s volatile on-campus environment and the liberal narrative that white men are terrible people. In his reporting, he has found that identity politics, such as separating groups based on race, ethnicity, religion and socio-economic class, are at the core of the Left’s college campus indoctrination.

Greer cites the following policies as key to that effort:

  • Affirmative action and the “cult of diversity”
  • Political correctness and microaggressions
  • Victimhood culture
  • Identity politics
  • White guilt
  • Rape culture feminism
  • Greek organizations under siege
  • Leftist hoaxes

Greer notes that nearly 50% of America’s colleges have free speech codes, which limit the expression of free speech and how almost 40% of Millennials favor government prohibiting viewpoints that could offend minorities. He also quotes fairly credible studies and reports at odds with the 1-in-5 college women sexual assault statistic that the Left has used it to create a dogmatic, repressive college atmosphere.

Greer’s book is a worthwhile read to update one’s colleagues, friends and family on what is going poorly on America’s college campuses.

    (a) Should there BE a “safe space for Caucasians(last time I checked they made up the majority of the US population)??? Secondly what about Yale, Harvard, Catholic University of America, Notre Dame and other presumably lily white Ivy League places of higher education???

    Thank you Scott Greer for writing this timely, informative, and well written book. As Aristotle stated in one of his books, a democratic form of government without strict and strictly enforced republican principles is one of the worst forms of government, a tyranny of the majority in which the electoral majority grants itself unjust privileges and immunity from societal responsibilities while discriminating against the electoral majority with regard to the same. In this case, the minority is Caucasian men.
    “When a government becomes powerful it is destructive, extravagant and violent; it is an usurer which takes bread from innocent mouths and deprives honorable men of their substance, for votes with which to perpetuate itself.”

    Marcus Tullius Cicero quotes
