Three days back, Steve Sailer had a data-laden post from a poll of over 10,000 students in the University of Wisconsin system. There are 13 campuses, with the well-known Univ. of Wisconsin in Madison being the biggest. polls can be stupid, so I don't trust all this kind of data. If the questions asked there were as written though, the results are downright sickening.
Mr. Sailer's post* is titled Little Sister Is Watching You because he put his focus mostly on the male v female results to the questions.
Strikingly, almost 38% of these college women think that offensive language is violence, while "only" 18% of the college men do. The latter number is just as striking too. It'd have been 0 when I went to college, as you couldn't get into college if you were that stupid! Now, apparently, you can. (Or is it only college that can make one this stupid? I think the latter.)
Another question is whether people saying "offensive speech" are "causing harm", which has even higher numbers: 47% of women and 21% of men.
Anyway, I want to concentrate on the right side of the bar graphs, which is this set, from "Very Liberal" (in the modern sense - the ctrl-left) to "Very Conservative". The numbers for agreement with "offensive speech = violence" go like this:
What kind of crazy people would equate free speech that they don't agree with to violence? Wait ... are they crazy, or maybe, is this some kind of purposeful way to enable traditional liberty-loving and even just liberty-understanding people to get in trouble for speaking against the narra.. ...ohhhhhhh. I've read of people like this in, where was it... lemme rattle my brain... China in the 1960s, oh, and Russia like a century ago... hell, over there even when I was alive. I'm blanking out here on the term, though...
To get these violent people, you know, violent due to their speaking against the Establishment, in trouble, you've first got to report them to someone. How do they feel about that?
There you go. Almost three quarters of the hard crtl-left would try to get their Professor in trouble for saying something that they "feel causes harm". Remember hurt feelings are harm now, which is violence, BTW. Gotta report those violent people to the authoritah. That's how they did in in the USSR. That's how they did in under Chairman Mao. That's how they did it under Pol Pot. That's how they did it under Castro.
Ahhaaa, that senior moment I had above is over! These ctrl-left people we have now are Communists. The universities are infested with them, and, in fact, the universities are breeding these people. The universities need to be terminated with extreme prejudice.
* I used to write posts almost directly off of Steve Sailer posts back 5 years ago, as he does all the hard and nasty work of reading the New York Times, Washington Post, Atlantic etc. I'm reverting to sponging off him for this post, as this information is something else!
