Students at a University of London college are demanding that such seminal figures as Plato, Descartes, Immanuel Kant and Bertrand Russell should be largely dropped from the curriculum simply because they are white.

These may be the names that underpin civilisation, yet the student union at the world-renowned School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) is insisting that when studying philosophy ‘the majority of philosophers on our courses’ should be from Africa and Asia.

‘A prestigious UK university has introduced ‘trigger warnings’ into its theology course over fears students may be distressed when studying the crucifixion of Jesus.

The University of Glasgow introduced the warnings for students taking a class called Creation to Apocalypse: Introduction to the Bible (Level 1).

Popular in US educational institutions, trigger warnings were introduced to warn people about content which may ‘trigger’ a post-traumatic stress reaction.

However, critics argue they have gone too far and are at risk of making university undergraduates overly sensitive or restricting freedom of speech.’

‘Texas Woman’s University has warned students that describing Christmas parties as “Holiday” parties is now not politically correct enough and may offend Muslims, suggesting that the term “end of semester party” be used instead.

According to an advisory which described tips for an “all-inclusive, multicultural holiday party at the office,” describing Christmas as a “holiday” is not longer multicultural enough because, “Not all faith traditions have holidays in December, and not everyone identifies with a particular faith tradition.”

Mark Kessler, professor of multicultural women’s and gender studies, says that in order to avoid “missteps” that might offend Muslims, Jews or atheists, party planners should refrain from using the word “holiday” because it “connotes religious tradition and may not apply to all employees.”’

‘Indiana residents are defying a lawsuit from the American Civil Liberties Union challenging a cross that tops a Christmas tree in their town square.

Knightstown residents were upset after the ACLU filed a lawsuit on behalf of resident Joseph Tompkins, who claimed the lit cross atop the evergreen tree in the town square violates his First Amendment rights.

“There are no other holiday decorations on the square,” the lawsuit, obtained by Infowars, states. “The cross is the best known symbol of Christianity and Knightstown’s prominent display of this symbol represents an establishment of religion in violation of the First Amendment to the US Constitution.”’

‘“Students at Oxford University have been told to use the pronoun ‘ze’ rather than ‘he’ or ‘she’ to eliminate discrimination against transgender people,” reported Breitbart.com today.

“Guidance offered in a leaflet by the students’ union advises against using traditional pronouns, arguing that doing so suggests there are only two genders. Deliberately using the wrong pronoun for a transgendered person is an offence under the union’s code of conduct.”

I have news for all the snowflake “biological denialists” at Oxford and other “safe space” campus across America: There are only two sexes in humans: male and female.’

‘A Syrian teenager was reportedly kicked off a tram in Berlin for wearing a headscarf, after the driver shouted through a loudspeaker that he refused to transport her.

The 14-year-old entered the tram at around 2pm on Tuesday in the southeastern neighborhood of Friedrichshagen, according to a police report.

She wanted to ride until the nearest S-Bahn railway stop, but was not allowed to go that far. Instead, the driver demanded over the loudspeaker that she leave the tram immediately, telling her that he would not drive anyone who wears a headscarf.’
