Cambridge Snowflakes Rescind Jordan Peterson’s Visiting Fellowship, by James Delingpole.
Cambridge University has rescinded the offer of a visiting fellowship to Jordan Peterson after snowflake students complained about his WrongThink.
Dr Peterson had been invited to give a series of lectures on the Bible to the university’s Faculty of Divinity.
But after complaints from the Cambridge University Students Union (CUSU), the Faculty caved. …
Ceded to the PC shouters
PC versus realism:
His crimes included: calling “white privilege” a “myth”; doubting the “scientific consensus” on climate change; claiming that men are victims of “gender oppression;” arguing that the patriarchy is “predicated on competence.”
The swollen class of stupid bureaucrats strikes again:
The bigger failing here lies with the university authorities. When I was at university in the 1980s, it was a given that nothing the student union (not to be confused with the debating society, the Oxford Union) said needed to be taken seriously: it was just wanky leftists whose frontal lobes hadn’t yet formed sounding off about the fashionable socialistic concerns of the day. Meanwhile, my university got on with the business of trying to form its undergraduates’ intellects and moral character. Same rules applied at Cambridge.
Now all has changed. Suddenly the university faculty has started treating these nasty little tics’ horrid intersectional ideology seriously and acting as if it had anything to do with the price of eggs – which it really doesn’t. The SJW creed, like fascism, Nazism, Maoism and all the other totalitarian ideologies, only becomes real if the grown-ups accept it as real.
This is like 1968 all over again when the grown-ups ceded all responsibility and the stupid angry kids took over.
