Cornell English Department Changes Name to Distinguish the English Language from English Nationality

Published

on

Cornell University’s English department has voted to change its name to avoid the “conflation of English as a language and English as a nationality,” according to university student newspaper The Cornell Daily Sun.

The Ivy League institution located in Ithaca, New York, will now boast an English department named “the department of literatures in English.” Although this change has yet to be approved by university administrators, the English department itself voted “overwhelmingly” in favor of it.

The Cornell Daily Sun also pointed out that the proposal was introduced by “faculty members of color” and in response to the death of woke ideology patron saint George Floyd.

“Faculty around the country — not just faculty of color, but faculty in general — began to look at the institution to see how we can help advance a discourse that challenges structural forms of racism which get reproduced in students and in teaching over and over again,” [Prof. Carole] Boyce-Davies said.

Other faculty simply recognized that it was time that the department’s title represented what it was really focused on: literature written in English.

“In part, it was also a result of an ongoing shift in literary study in this department — and others across the country — to focus on a broader reach of literature,” [Director of Undergraduate Studies Prof. Kate] McCullough explained.

As an acquaintance of mine pointed out, what person out there has ever thought that English departments only teach the conventions and culture of the ethnically English? Everyone knows they teach the English language and literature written in the English language. (Or at least they should—too many of them now teach tangentials like deconstructionism and critical race theory.) Cornell’s switch to “department of literatures in English” is nothing more than silly symbolism to show off how progressive they are.

Hungary Will Take Action Against Big Tech Shadowbanning of Christians, Conservatives, and Other Right-Wingers

Holding Big Tech accountable.

Published

on

The government of Viktor Orban, prime minister of Hungary, has announced its commitment to take on Big Tech’s shadowbanning of Christians, conservatives, and other assorted right-wingers.

In a Facebook post shared Monday, Hungarian Minister of Justice Judit Varga said she believes that shadowbanning—the secret restriction of a social media user’s visibility—violates “fundamental democratic legal norms that form the basis of Western-type culture.”

Because of Big Tech’s “systematic abuses,” Varga said she convened a meeting of the Hungarian Digital Freedom Committee and will soon meet with the president of the Hungarian Competition Authority regarding “the possibility of sanctioning unfair commercial practices.”

Varga also claimed she has personally experienced shadowbanning and then linked to the following tweets from James O’Keefe and the O’Keefe-run Project Veritas:

The Hungarian government, along with the Polish government, is considered one of the last in the Western world that’s committed to some form of social conservatism and resistance against neoliberal globalism. Big League Politics has thus closely followed Prime Minister Orban and Hungary over the past several months, reporting on Orban’s various confrontations with George Soros and news such as their proposed constitutional amendment to prevent gay couples from adopting children:
