LA Times Defends Freedom of Speech in the University of California

Hat tip Campus Reform

Hold the presses! The uber-liberal LA Times is speaking out against Janet Napolitano's speech codes at the University of California.

Yes, it's true. If you want to insist that America is the land of opportunity, the LA Times is going to defend to the death your right to do so-no matter how much they may disagree.

However, it just may be that the Times is swimming against the tide. Already at the prestigious University of Wisconsin at Stevens Point (That's in Wisconsin for all you UC Santa Cruz Community Studies and History of Consciousness majors), they have also adapted a speech code against those micro-aggressions that Napolitano is so concerned about.

Here is more on the Wisconsin situation from the College Fix.

And from an undisclosed classroom deep in the bowels of the UC Irvine Extension, an adjunct teacher (me) stands in open rebellion to the powers that be in the University of California.

I was doing some tutoring a few years back with students who were Karen, and I asked them to teach me some words in their native language. They were quite enthusiastic about doing so, and didn't seem to feel microaggressed in the least. (I stopped reading the pdf of the stupid Stevens Point cheat sheet after the first line).

Gary probably knows that Karen are a people from the southern part of Myanmar. He may not know that at least half of them are Baptist. I went to a Karen Baptist service once, and couldn't understand the words, but recognized several tunes.
