Students at the University of Wisconsin, Madison are demanding that their schools administration put members of a conservative club through intensive diversity training.
An online petition being circulated by the schools Student Coalition for Progress condemns the Young Americans for Freedom (YAF) chapter on campus for hosting Ben Shapiro, whom they claim has used his following and nationally syndicated media presence to deny the realities of systematic and institutional violence against Black and Brown people, sexual assault survivors, Muslims, LGBTQIA+ people, people with low income[s], people with differing abilities, undocumented immigrants, and anyone that [sic] is systematically targeted along identity lines.

delegitimize the political opposition.
What the hell is LGBTQIA+?
I’m having trouble keeping up with all these new pervert classifications. In my day they were all just perverts.
Every state has at least one a**hole city. Madison is Wisconsin’s
Something needs to be done about these colleges that are so communist. Maybe states such as Wisconsin should create coordinate colleges on the campuses of their once great universities, where it is safe to have opinions that deviate from communist orthodoxy.
I'm pretty sure the "I" stands for "idiot".
Even today “they all are just perverts”. Nothing has changed even though they’d like others to think so.
I may not agree with your views, but I will defend to the death my right to silence, censor and if possible outlaw them.
Here it comes. This is why I retired early. I could have taught for 5-6 more years, but among other things I saw this campus fascism coming (as of course many of us did).
This is Stalin crap!!It needs to be stopped cold by stopping federal funds until it is stopped!!
How many of these wouldn’t be in college if not for government grants and loans?
“Diversity” is one of those terms that changes meaning depending on who is using it. For the ultra-uber-alt-left that dominates the UW-Madison campus, it is purely based on sexual orientation and skin color, no conservative heterosexual Caucasians need apply.
Many years ago (1960s), I worked on the campus (civil service) and I ran into this attitude over and over. Bascom Hill was the rallying point for many of the early anti-war rallies, and there were even bombings on the campus of various facilities that were doing contract work for DOD, and of the ROTC centers. I believe ROTC was driven off the campus entirely, and a number of “cultural programs” were set up to accommodate the new wave of activist students (many of whom were from out-of-state) that swarmed over the campus.
They were not a pretty sight then, and things have not improved.
This is Newspeak for: Re-education Camp
What's next? Concentration camps?
Honestly,....I believe the Marx-0-Left would kill us. They just can't get away with it....(yet).
Start relentlessly suing the universities for assault against free speech or a professor that grades based on political agenda.
A petition, classifying everyone in to little identity groups, against classifying people in to little identity groups.
Yep, but what cowards! Why only condemn them? I’ll bet they could get a petition going asking that the administration flog the members of the YAF in the main square of the student commons. Tickets to the flogging would be sold as a fundraiser for green energy projects for the campus. And they would have lots of signers!
This is why the voting age should be 25 and why the lying liberal professors should be fired for hiding the truth of freedom from these ignorant kids.
