Naturally: Abdul Artan Was Taking a Course in Microaggressions, and Had a Group Project Due This Week

I guess he was going for Extra Credit.


Before he was shot dead while attempting to murder a bunch of people with a car and a butcher's knife, Ohio State University student Abdul Artan--a Pakistani immigrant who reportedly became radicalized after learning about injustices committed against fellow Muslims--was enrolled in a class called "Crossing Identity Boundaries."

In fact, he had a group project on "microaggressions" due later this week. The assignment, worth 15 percent of his grade, required students to find a dozen examples of microaggressions on social media and explain which identity groups were the victims, according to the syllabus.

The purpose of the class is to promote "intercultural leadership" and transform students into "actively engaged, socially just global citizen/leaders." It seems to go well beyond merely educating students, though—it actually requires them to become social justice activists.

I keep asking the same question:

If whites were tribing up and "studying" the violent crimes inflicted on them by minorities, and generally whipping themselves up into a lather about the Minority Peril, would the media find this dangerous and a Cause for National Concern?

Of course they would. This would be "martial rhetoric" which produces a "climate of hate" in which violence against the outgroup is encouraged.

But when #BlackLivesMatter tells people that white cops are prowling the street looking for young black men to assassinate?

Apparently that's not dangerous -- either because only whites are so evil as to be encouraged into violence, or because White Lives Really Don't Matter.

By the way, it will probably surprise you buttloads to hear that sources say that Artan was inspired by ISIS propaganda. Fox Tweet mentioning this (and nothing else) here.
