Politically correct dogma originates on college campuses, where administrators and activists work feverishly to expand the cultural category of that which is “offensive.” Already this forbidden category includes even American-themed BBQs:
Students at Ramapo College were recently forced to change the theme of an “American BBQ” because the administration deemed it too “offensive.”
Ramapo College is a state university in Mahwah, New Jersey.
According to emails obtained by Campus Reform, Ariana Rivera, the Assistant Residence Director of Bischoff Hall, sent an email to the College Republicans and the College Democrats on August 17 inviting the groups to co-sponsor an American-themed BBQ with Bischoff and Mackin Halls.
The proposal called for the CRs and CDs to run tables for their respective organizations at the event, as well as encouraging students to register to vote, and CR President Taylor Gilson responded almost immediately to affirm that her group would participate.
However, on September 14, just two days before the scheduled event, Rivera wrote to Gilson, again, this time regretfully explaining that Bischoff Hall would no longer be co-sponsoring with the CRs because the American theme was “considered offensive.”
Evidently administrators were outraged by flyers featuring Uncle Sam and reading, “We want you…to come to our BBQ,” which reminded them not only of patriotism but even of the American military.
We can all see where this is heading, so why not just cut to the chase and abolish any reference to America from American colleges? Next the administrators could cleanse themselves of their cultural sins by giving the campuses back to the Indians.
