Published

on

A new survey from the Cato Institute/YouGov reveals that a wide majority of Americans fear speaking openly on their own political and social views, citing the threat of persecution from the cultural left and major corporations.

The poll, released Wednesday, reveals that a whopping 62% of Americans agree that “the political climate these days prevents them from saying things they believe because others might find them offensive.

In an even more shocking twist, half of ‘strong’ Joe Biden supporters believe that major corporations should fire anyone who donates to the Donald Trump campaign from their jobs, revealing the left’s cultural authoritarianism is nascent and vicious. Only 36% of ‘strong Donald Trump supporters say the same about employers and Joe Biden donors.

52% of Democrats, 59% of Independents, and 77% of Republicans profess that they hold views they’re afraid to share in public.

Around 32% of all Americans fear voicing their political opinions could stifle their own career trajectory. Reports of self-censorship also come from majorities of Americans of every racial group with the exception of Black Americans.

While the Left’s addiction to silencing its political opponents and critics may be useful in granting it short-term power, it may end up that the silent majority of Americans sick of being bullied may tire of caving to a small minority’s cultural dictates.

MSU Provost Goes Politically Correct by Eliminating the Words “Foreign” and “Alien”

Published

In a recent announcement, Michigan State University Provost Teresa Woodruff declared that the university will stop using the terms “foreign” and “alien” to foster a more “inclusive” environment.

The Morning Watch reported that Woodruff said before the Associated Students of MSU (ASMSU) on October 22, that “we will eliminate from our collective lexicon the words ‘alien’ and ‘foreign.’ Instead, we’ve adopted non-pejorative terms that describe geography.”

The new language directed towards international students would now be “non-domestic” or “international,” the provost detailed. Woodruff added that the change will help “create a culture of not us vs. them, but of each other.”

Woodruff revealed that change was made by the MSU Office of the Provost and went through the Dean’s Council, and the federal government was made aware of these changes.

The ASMSU’s International Students Association representative Nikunj Agarwal declared that the language change is an “essential step” and that change in language will help in “making us feel really inclusive in the community.” MSU has been active over the past year in trying to become more politically correct and “inclusive.”

Back in October 2019, MSU made additional changes to appeal to resident aliens by launching a website for “undocumented students, refugees, and recipients of…DACA.” The website listed a number of goals which consisted of “reducing apprehension, addressing confusion, and giving better access to MSU resources.”

MSU’s President Samuel Stanley was especially shook after Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) agents gave a presentation before an MSU class. Stanley likened the the CBP agents’ visit to campus as acts of vandalism and part of the “concern and anger” at the university.

Public universities are making it clear that they don’t care about free speech and are willing to manipulate language for the sake of promoting political correctness. If conservatives aren’t majoring in high demand fields such as STEM, they should give universities the cold shoulder. There’s no need to subsidize institutions that hate you.
