University of Chicago English Department Declares: We Will Hire No Professors Except for Those Working in "Black Studies"

Because of Burn Loot Murder.

The New Jim Crow is at 25% power, and people still aren't objecting. So they'll take it up to 50% and see how everyone likes it then.

The University of Chicago had controversially announced its support of free speech in a declaration of "Chicago Principles."

But as Evita Duffy notes, the University of Chicago's outright discrimination in favor of race-hustlers puts lie to those "principles."

Opposing Socialism Generates Death Threat

In March, I participated in a University of Chicago's "nonpartisan" Institute of Politics (IOP) digital initiative, called "I vote because...," where students pose with a small whiteboard stating their personal reasons for voting. I wrote, "I vote because the coronavirus won't destroy America, but socialism will."

I was naively unprepared for the onslaught of online hate and threats of violence I received. Fellow students attacked my character, intellect, family, and appearance using foul and offensive language. I was called a racist and a xenophobe. Some compared me to animals. Others declared I deserved to be bullied and that I donít belong at the University of Chicago on account of my beliefs. I was told I was the most hated person on campus.

For days, I pored over vile posts and comments. I was in shock and emotional distress. I didn't defend myself. In fact, I didnít respond to a single comment or post about me online, whether it was negative or positive. It wasn't until I received a death threat from one of my classmates that I made the decision to write an op-ed, sharing my side of the story and defending what I wrote on my whiteboard.

Following the publication of my op-ed, David Axelrod released a statement on behalf of the Institute of Politics condemning the violence and personal attacks I received. Although I was grateful for Axelrod's statement, it, unfortunately, validated the defamation of character students employed in calling me xenophobic and racist.


What happened to me is exactly why university imposed politics is so damaging. I hoped that my experience would have inspired students, faculty, and the administration to reexamine campus culture and recommit to the Chicago Principles. Instead, the administration and department heads at the University of Chicago created a hyper-partisan culture through emails and other official means, sending an implied message that silences debate on important issues.

By using my tuition dollars to cast themselves as moral arbiters, dissenters are automatically categorized as racist or anti-justice. This emboldens leftists on campus, who already wield an outsized voice and power. In short, it inspires a mob mentality. Unfortunately, dissenting students, who saw what happened to me, are more scared than ever to speak their minds on campus.

(Sorry this is one of those posts that's been in draft a while. But it's going to be a long night.)
