We seem to be living during one of history’s rare Idiot Extravaganzas. So it’s no surprise to me a story like this pops up. It’s been reported the Columbia University Marching Band issued a statement Saturday announcing it would dissolve after 116 years of performance due to intrinsic, irreparable damage caused by the club’s structure, which was ‘founded on the basis of racism’ and ‘cultural oppression. Yeah, a marching band.
“The Columbia University Marching Band apologizes for insult and injury victims have experienced as a result of actions perpetrated in its name. The Band has maintained a club structure founded on the basis of racism, cultural oppression, misogyny, and sexual harassment.”
The band was in limbo with the University’s athletics department, which stripped it of its university funding in 2019, and a year prior, Columbia College and and the School of Engineering and Applied Science also withdrew their funding from the band after it stormed a campus library in 2017. I guess if I had been marching for 116 years, I’d be tired, too.
Once again, it is impossible to parody the left
