The university is a central pillar of white supremacy. It has to be destroyed like all white supremacist institutions simultaneously.So I just saw this post by @FarLeftWatch about a multi-day "White Privilege Conference" hosted by Ryerson Univeristy. Yes, it was exactly the type of intersectionalist stew of postmodernist, SJW nonsense we've all come to know and loathe.
As Far Left Watch notes, Rinaldo Walcott, the keynote speaker and Director of the Women & Gender Studies Institute at the University of Toronto noted that "free speech and academic freedom are "white supremacist speech." And furthermore, "The university is a central pillar of white supremacy. It has to be destroyed like all white supremacist institutions simultaneously." And even better "End the damn myth universities are not sanctuaries of free ideas. They are sites of white supremacist logics that allow some small diffs."
Self-reflection isn't apparently one of Walcott's strengths. After all, if "The university is a central pillar of white supremacy," why does it allow him to speak and, in fact, pay him to do so? Any self-respecting white supremacist would at the very least not hire him and in all likelihood, harass, attack and silence him. Yet he speaks unmolested.
Instead, actual white supremacists have their websites literally stolen by Google. It's hard to feel bad for such trash, but what a horrible precedent. Especially when Silicon Valley leans so far left a guy can get fired from Facebook for a memo that states scientifically mainstream positions on gender differences. How long before pro-life sites get taken down because of "hate" or some other mainstream conservative site? A study found that when Facebook changed its algorithm, conservative sites saw traffic from Facebook fall 14 percent while liberal sites saw a 2 percent rise. And insiders at Twitter have said that Twitter shadow bans and outright bans conservatives on a routine basis.
And colleges are even worse. Indeed, many conservative speakers, along with some BDS types, have been uninvited from colleges. Mainstream Republicans such as Ben Shapiro can't even give a speech at liberal colleges like Berkeley without Antifa causing a riot. And somehow in Europe, it's even worse, with people being arrested routinely for mean tweets and Nazi pugs.
Racism still exists, of course. But this talk of living in a "white supremacist state" is ridiculous. If anything, we live in a politically correct state, and that state is both merging with and being supplanted by various large tech companies, which makes this situation all the more precarious.
