‘If you thought that life on America’s college campuses had reached peak crazy, you’d be wrong. It turns out that the politically correct culture which has entangled our upper education system, is taking a turn for the Orwellian (if it hadn’t already).
Adam Steinbaugh of the Washington Examiner has been investigating these schools, and he’s found that the administrators are encouraging students to snitch on each other (and their professors). Not to expose criminal behavior or cheating, but to target inappropriate speech. He found that 230 colleges have what are called “Bias Response Teams,” which are made up of either campus cops or administrators, and whose sole job is to investigate mostly anonymous claims of offensive speech.
And as you might expect, these schools define “bias” in extremely vague and subjective terms. What may shock most people, however, is that it isn’t reserved for stifling conservative opinions, as would be typical of a college campus. It can include anything that offends anyone.’
