“Here’s something you don’t see every day: A bunch of teachers at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill have decided to protest … by withholding students’ grades”
Yup. They’re mad. At a statue.
“Silent Sam” … a long ago alumni-gift from Civil War veterans … was set to be moved indoors … out of sight of the offended public.
Not good enough.
Seventy-nine traumatized professors have decided to withhold student grades until Silent Sam is run out of town … and some campus workers get dental insurance.
I’m not kidding.
Those are their demands.
Sounds like a cheesy protest to me. But I can’t say I’m surprised. These are Sixties’ retreads. Disciples of the decade that will not die. Kinda like the walking dead.
But if you’re crackin’ open the family safe and selling grandma’s jewelry to send a kid to UNC, chances are pretty good they’re being voodooed by some wacky, Sixties druids.
And it’s pretty guaranteed that your child’s college adventure will be very expensive … but also extra-rich in micro-aggressions, safe spaces, free speech zones, segregated dorms, Play-Doh therapy sessions, canceled exams, gender-neutral pronouns, anti-reality-siestas, statue trauma … and hidden grades.
And for 50 or 60 thousand bucks a year, those learned-loons will alter history, devalue literature, malign scholarship, discover cultural indictments in every American success story …
and then make you guess your grade!
So on graduation day, you can scoop up your brand-new anti-cultural … anti-realist … anti-American … and not hear a peep from Silent Sam.
Yay! North Carolina!
