Awww, hearing diverse opinions might make the witlle Leftist sunflowers afwaid!

Gutless, entitled whiners

Oberlin College feminists claim they “feel unsafe” because of an upcoming event featuring Christina Hoff Sommers, a noted scholar and author on modern feminism.

In a public Facebook event page, the Oberlin College Republicans and Libertarians (OCRL) student group said Sommers will discuss “feminism from a perspective that differs from the general Oberlin population.”

However, many female students at the Ohio school have taken over the comments section of the event page to express their disappointment in the group’s choice of Sommers as an event speaker. Several students claim they “feel unsafe” by her presence on campus.

“I have an opinion. My opinion is different from yours (read: ‘general Oberlin consensus’). PS my opinion is actually super fucking oppressive. My view silences people’s lived experiences. My view silences people’s realities. My view silences people’s trauma. But it’s different. In the name of free speech, you better give me the platform to speak,’” Lydia Smith, an Oberlin student, wrote on the event page.

How the Hell can an opinion be oppressive, much less “super fucking oppressive”? How can someone sharing their opinion silence someone’s experience? Seriously, do these douche nozzles think at all?

“It’s really exciting to realize some of our peers think statistics are more important than people,” Smith wrote in all caps in a separate post on the page.

Ah, Lydia Smith has a problem with facts being presented I see. 

“I’m angry and disappointed that you decided to bring this speaker during Sexual Assault Awareness Month. And I wish I was surprised too, but I’m not,” Alison Kronstadt, another Oberlin student, wrote.

Oh good grief, apparently this dim bulb thinks that hearing a different opinion and being raped are one in the same. Honestly, does Alison Krondstadt even grasp what an idiotic statement this is?

Leftists love to exploit a good crisis, even if they have to create one

That racial hoax at Olberlin College? Looks as if maybe they did it to create a crisis they could exploit

When The Great Oberlin Racism Hoax of 2013 was exposed last month by Chuck Ross at The Daily Caller, troubling questions arose as to How Could Oberlin Be So Cruel as to not have told students there weren’t really Nazi and KKK sympathizers stalking the campus.

Police records reveal that the Oberlin administration was aware, no later than February 27, that it was a hoax led by someone who was not racist, but rather, a pro-Obama liberal “anti-racist” activist who did it as a “trolling” prank to get a campus reaction. The students protesting on campus on March 4, when classes were canceled, were not told.

Oberlin could have informed the campus and the nation that there were no actual fires, just fire alarms pulled as a prank.  Instead, it allowed fear and disquiet to spread.  One student I spoke with stated that “people were freaking out when [the administration] brought in the FBI,” thinking there really was a threat.

But it’s even worse.  That fear and disquiet was exploited by student activists aligned with the Oberlin Multicultural Resource Center and Afrikan Heritage House with the encouragement of the Oberlin administration.

Oberlin “used that fear to get students to push for even more extreme policies”

A student contacted me to alert me to how the campus turmoil was exploited to encourage and then implement aggressive multicultural and left-wing agenda items:

I’d like to personally thank you for your coverage of the Oberlin hate hoax. Many students… have been following your site and are glad that somebody is helping to get the word out about the Oberlin administration’s response.

The Daily Caller story just grazes the surface of what really happened. The administration didn’t just allow students to live in fear, they actually used that fear to get students to push for even more extreme policies on campus. Many students formed into “working groups” to propose solutions for “institutional change”, nearly all of which have been approved by the administration and are being enacted.

This student’s concerns are reflected in the timeline of events, and documents reflecting the agenda.

Go read the rest at Legal Insurrection. Never forget the Left will do anything achieve their ends

Being a “atheist/ pacifist/environmentalist/libertarian socialist/consequentialist,” is no way to go through life son

Dylan Bleir is, as Stacy McCain notes, a typical lying Democrat

Oberlin College student Dylan Bleier identified himself as an “atheist/ pacifist/environmentalist/libertarian socialist/consequentialist,” which is to say he is a typical lying Democrat criminal:

One of the two students removed from Oberlin College earlier this year for allegedly circulating virulently racist, anti-Jewish and anti-gay messages around campus  is an ardent leftist and committed supporter of President Barack Obama, The Daily Caller News Foundation has learned.
Dylan Bleier, one of the two students, organized a voter registration drive on behalf of Obama before the 2008 election. That voter drive is still listed on the website for Organizing for Action, the non-profit group whose mission is to advance Obama’s agenda.
The Oberlin Police Department identified Bleier and his partner in the spree, Matt Alden, as two of the principal architects of a month-long spate of racist, anti-Jewish and anti-gay messages at the small, private campus.

Oh the Left LOVES stories like these, and the media? They cannot get enough, as it fits their “America is RAAAAACIST” mantra. But, what would the media, and the Left do if these “hate crimes” were fake, as many such incidents prove to be?

This would have been a hate crime if it had been true and it is twice as wrong because it was a damnable lie which, as Oberlin alumna Michelle Malkin makes clear, the administration was willing to accept as a pretext for more of their endless “diversity” indoctrinations. The usual suspects were part of the dishonest cover-up:

School officials and local police knew the identity of the culprits, who were responsible for most if not all of such incidents on campus, yet remained silent as the campus reacted as if the incidents were real.  . . .
The New York Times, among dozens of newspapers, covered the story, publishing photos of the protests. . . .
Melissa Harris-Perry was all over it, along with Ta-Nehisi Coates, using the Oberlin experience to draw larger points about racism . 

Babbling, race-obsessed idiots!

Oh, and the person in the “Klan robe” was actually just a woman in a blanket, but, MHP does not care about that.

Oh you just KNEW that Melissa Harris Perry, and her tampon earrings would be all over this. And if you are waiting for her to retract any statements she made, do not hold your breath. People like Perry are great at fanning divisive flames, but admitting they were wrong? Eh, not so much. In fact I would not be stunned at all if Leftist agitators like Perry continue to reference “Olberlin College” in the future. Leftists not only lie, but they repeat those lies, even after they have been proven false. Darleen Click explains “fake, but accurate”

The college’s administration knew early on this was a hoax and chose to remain silent. They deliberately fed into the Leftist narrative that America is more racist than ever.

Will there be any consequences for Oberlin’s despicable behavior?

Probably not, as “fake but accurate” is a guiding Leftist principle.

Just as morality is subjective among Leftists, so is the definition of truth. If it fits their agenda, it is true, even if it is completely fabricated!

Just one more example that when the Left says “by any means” they mean it!
