Radical leftism is spreading like a disease on college campuses.
College students have been indoctrinated for so long, they’ve lost the ability to reason.
And university students were stumped when they were asked one question about the humiliating thing Elizabeth Warren did.
Conservative student organization, Campus Reform, a group on the frontlines of the distressing battle for sanity at universities, recently asked college kids about the leftist concept of cultural appropriation.
Cultural appropriation, which means adopting or emulating a culture that’s not your own, has become a serious taboo on the left.
According to liberals, a white person operating a taco truck or dressing as a Native American for Halloween is deeply offensive.
Campus Reform asked students at a college how they felt about cultural appropriation, and the respondents universally decried the practice.
But things went sideways when they were asked about Elizabeth Warren pretending to be Native American for decades.
Some of the students reluctantly criticized Warren, some backtracked, some demurred, and others were stumped.
According to the left, dressing like a Native American on Halloween is bad, but lying on government documents and job applications is okay… but only if you’re on the left.
We’ve seen this same phenomenon before with the practice of wearing blackface.
Megyn Kelly was fired from NBC News for simply noting how kids once dressing up in blackface and nobody cared, but the Governor and Attorney General of Virginia both actually wore blackface, yet kept their positions because they’re Democrats.
Justin Trudeau, the far-left prime minister of Canada recently won re-election despite being caught in blackface on multiple occasions.
Leftists continue to be masters of hypocrisy.
The case of Warren is particularly galling because her claim of Native American heritage allowed her to become the first “woman of color” faculty member at Harvard Law School, which is how she was billed in promotional material.
But Warren still claimed her big lie didn’t advantage her in any way.
She would probably still be pretending to be Native American if Donald Trump hadn’t goaded her into blowing herself up politically.
Warren, tired of Trump’s humorous “Pocahontas” taunt, elected to get a DNA test to prove her Native American ancestry.
Warren boasted that she might be 1/1,024th Native American, but quickly had to apologize after the so-called mainstream media stopped running interference for her.
Tribal leaders ripped Warren’s claim to Native American heritage and the practice of using a DNA test.
It’s amazing to see liberals rally around Warren despite her grave sin of cultural appropriation.
This just goes to show that leftist ideas have no logic; it’s all about gaining power and forcing compliance.
If the left truly believed in cultural appropriation, then only Greeks would be allowed to wear dreadlocks.
Adoption of other cultures used to be considered a good thing, but the left’s nonsense ideology has catastrophized that practice.
Yale was the epicenter for the rapid spread of hysteria over cultural appropriation when students were literally brought to tears when they were told they had enough agency to decide which Halloween costumes were and were not appropriate.
Now some elementary schools are canceling Halloween altogether as a result of this madness.
Terrible ideas on college campuses cannot be ignored, because they’re spreading in a way that they haven’t before.
