(National Sentinel) Political Academics: The Alt-Left Marxist culture wars on American university campuses continues unabated.
Now, as Breitbart News reports, new hires at Iowa State University are required to sign a pledge that they will “demonstrate their contribution to diversity and inclusion.”
Which, of course, means in reality, ‘I will adhere to the far-Left definition of inclusion and diversity, which means it’s okay to treat conservative faculty and students like something I stepped in while violating their basic constitutional rights, mostly to speak freely.’
The site notes further:
Under the monicker “Principles of Community,” faculty candidates are asked to agree that they are willing to participate in a “global and culturally diverse university committed to providing an inclusive, equitable, and diverse environment for both learning and employment.” The statement adds that the “university has an expectation that all employees will demonstrate a contribution to diversity and inclusion as embodied in Iowa State University’s Principles of Community.”
“We knew it would be time for us to articulate [a] message of diversity and inclusion for every new employee,” said Iowa State’s Vice President of Diversity and Inclusion, Reginald Stewart, who, of course, is a minority.
The statement that faculty candidates are asked to sign onto also defends “the right to and the importance of a free exchange of ideas at Iowa State University within the bounds of courtesy, sensitivity, and respect” — which means ‘nothing that will upset or challenge the Left-wing orthodoxy we’re trying to instill in all our students.’
And upon reading the university’s story, Stewart acted to require the pledge on the “recommendation” of — wait for it — Latino students.
Aren’t we just so diverse? Unless you’re white, Christian, conservative, and from the South.
Or a white, gay, conservative. As Breitbart noted further:
…[I]n in December 2016 a speaking event featuring former Breitbart editor Milo Yiannopoulos was canceled after the Iowa State administration engaged in the practice of security fee censorship. The administration told student organizers with only a week before the event that they would be required to raise an additional $2,000 in security fees if they wanted the event to proceed.
The fact that universities are even spending money hiring VPs of “diversity” is disgusting. But it emphasizes the extent of effort the Leftists who run most universities are willing to go in order to maximize efforts to brainwash their student charges.
And they won’t stop until every last vestige of opposition is wiped out.
