These morons are paying $70,000 a year for this education

We as a compassionate student body have gathered to address the legacy of oppression on campus. If these goals are not initiated within the next 24 to 48 hours, and completed by November 18th, we will organize and respond in a radical manner, through civil disobedience. If there is a continued failure to meet our demands, it will result in an escalation of our response.

1. President Martin must issue a statement of apology to students, alumni and former students, faculty, administration and staff who have been victims of several injustices including but not limited to our institutional legacy of white supremacy, colonialism, anti-black racism, anti-Latinx racism, anti-Native American racism, anti-Native/ indigenous racism, anti-Asian racism, anti-Middle Eastern racism, heterosexism, cis-sexism, xenophobia, anti-Semitism, ableism, mental health stigma, and classism. Also include that marginalized communities and their allies should feel safe at Amherst College.

5. President Martin must issue a statement to the Amherst College community at large that states we do not tolerate the actions of student(s) who posted the “All Lives Matter” posters, and the “Free Speech” posters that stated that “in memoriam of the true victim of the Missouri Protests: Free Speech.” Also let the student body know that it was racially insensitive to the students of color on our college campus and beyond who are victim to racial harassment and death threats; alert them that Student Affairs may require them to go through the Disciplinary Process if a formal complaint is filed, and that they will be required to attend extensive training for racial and cultural competency.

Time to lower the drinking age back down to 18. This is definitely evidence of an excess of sobriety on campus: because this sort of idiocy could only come from an excess of seriously shit drugs.

  1. Unfortunately for the American lefties, their argument falls apart as soon as they try lumping Asian-Americans in with African-Americans. Whether it’s test scores, college attendance, workforce participation, or just generally positive outcomes, the Orientals trounce the Africans. That undermines any suggestion that there is systematic discrimination, other than by ability.

  2. Morons is being kind. ‘Fascist’ is the word I think you were looking for.

    we do not tolerate the actions of student(s) who posted the “All Lives Matter” posters

    Fuck off.

  3. I hate to sound like “kids today, eh?” but I can’t find an equivalent of US college whiners from my youth (and I’ve worked with some great young people who aren’t like this).

    I think there’s a certain sort of post-internet narcissism. That because you have a tool that can reach a global audience, that the globe must hear you.

  4. I’ve seen the term “cry-bullies” applied. Rather good. What an evolutionary deadend the left has worked itself into!

  5. You guys should check out these pricks on Twitter. Tehy’re whining that the events in Paris are roughly equivalent to what they face on campus and they don’t like sharing the “limelight.”

    Horrendous narcissistic wankers the lot of em…

  6. For the future of the West, i hope to god that these are a very small but effectively but noisy section of the student body.

    Why the leadership pander to them is unforgivable

  7. Conscript the lot of ’em and send them to Arabia or Moslem Africa. There they’ll probably be enslaved which should prove highly educational. The boys will get their balls cut off, of course, which is another advantage.

  8. Really can’t be bothered to research this in any depth. One link suggest their mascot is a bit embarrassing because it links to their somewhat-racist and possibly nasty founder. I presume the rest is pretty much on that level?

    Sounds like a great basis for instituting fascism and kangaroo courts, yup.

  9. gunker,

    “Why the leadership pander to them is unforgivable”

    Because they keep the colleges in a lot of money. Looking at their profiles, these are all students in stuff like film and literature, and seriously, does that cost anything close to $60K/annum? You could hire well-known Hollywood directors for less at the sort of student ratios they work with.

    Based on what lecturer’s earn, that should be around a 2:1 ratio, including paying for a room for the teaching etc. These dummies are paying for the physics department to get new lasers and shit.

  10. Is there anyway of communicating with these utter twats and telling them what utter twats they are? I’d love to violate their safe place.

  11. The Stigler

    I recall our physics prof once made the same point about the “socio, psych, anthro, english” (as we called them. Other universities called it “B.A. find husband”)

    But diversity coordinators and other hangers-on don’t come cheap. These carryons must affect the contributions from alumni too

  12. Dear Mr Worstall

    Too much time, too little to do, and a moral compass that points to me! me! me!

    Is there any chance they’ll grow up to be decent human beings?

    Why the leadership pander to them is unforgivable.

    They are a small and noisy subset of the overall student body. The reason the leadership panders to them is the leadership – a bunch of superannuated hippie radicals – basically agrees with their critique of American society.

  14. Lord, Virtue-signalling has a lot to answer for.

    If this is the sort of stuff you have to get involved with to get laid at Uni nowadays, pound a pint night needs not only to be bought back, but made mandatory

  15. Bet this lot also complain about gov’t spying and removal of rights.
    Maybe someone should point out to them that free speech is a constitutional right not discretionary and it’s been established that upsetting people isn’t an exemption.
    Funnily enough they are complaining that the all lives matter campaign that points out that white teenagers getting shot is just as bad as black teenagers is actually a racist campaign that offends students of colour when it’s actually anti-racist to point out that all lives matter.

  16. The Stigler – but I can’t find an equivalent of US college whiners from my youth

    Rick from The Young Ones (RIP, Mr. Mayall) was based on real-life teenage Trot posers.

    But the modern Yank version does seem to be simultaneously more obnoxious, more mental, and yet more emotionally brittle.

    I think there’s a certain sort of post-internet narcissism

    I’m no trick cyclist, but I think you’re on to something. Narcissism (and its ugly sister, Attentionwhoria). Also, helicopter parenting, only-child-itis, and general pandering to kids are surely factors.

    When I were a lad, pushing my bike up vertically inclined cobbled streets to deliver 6 tonnes of bread to Old Ma Peggarty, adults didn’t see it as their duty to entertain, or puff up the self esteem of, or not occassionally kick the shit out of children. It was a world of adults, and children were expected to know their place in it, or else.

    I’m not sure what sort of upbringing these adorable Amherst tykes had, but I’m guessing it didn’t involve Dad taking his belt off to give them a damn good thrashing with the business end when they talked back to mother.

    And now look at them.

    Dunno who this President Martin fella is, but the best thing he can do now is get drunk and naked and beat these protestors with his work boot, while screaming “Look what you made me do!”

  17. Funnily enough, these are the very people who will end up allowing Muslims to take over the West, Muslims who will then create the most anti-liberal society you could imagine.

  18. Bloke in Costa Rica

    Really the only useful response to that list of demands is to round up a gang of about forty enormous hairy psychos, equip them with pickaxe handles, and tell them not to come back until there’s teeth all over the ground.
