Boghossian targetted for firing:
Epic Troll: Professor Tricks Academic Journals Into
Publishing Joke Papers
… Boghossian’s case is merely the latest example of political
correctness run amok on college campuses across the country. Earlier
this month, it was widely reported that Washington, D.C.’s American
University would be hosting a multisession seminar aimed at getting
faculty to combat “white language supremacy.” The seminar will also
propose “alternative” methods of assessing writing other than
quality, such as “labor-based grading contracts.”
While even the most unthreatening and lukewarm “conservative” voices
have been denied the opportunity to speak at various universities,
some astonishingly anti-white figures have been welcomed.
Christian evangelical Wheaton College, not a typical leftist
institution, permitted Emory University philosophy professor George
Yancy to speak there in 2017, in the esteemed Billy Graham Center on
campus. His speech was filled with expletives and hateful
declarations like, “To be white is to be racist.” Stephens College,
a women’s college in Columbia, Mo., recently announced that it will
“admit and enroll students who were not born female, but who
identify and live as women.” All-women Mount Holyoke College
canceled plans to change its logo due to protests that it could be
perceived as not being inclusive to transgender students.
Boghossian merely demonstrated what is obvious: In today’s America,
satire is impossible while a frighteningly authoritarian political
correctness rules the day.
