Just when you thought social justice warriors couldn’t get more unprofessional, they find new ways to surprise you.
According to KKTV, at the University of Colorado Colorado Springs (UCCS), a social justice group posted a newsletter to several bulletin boards. The newsletter argued that four-year universities should ban United States veterans.
Some members of the left believe that the very people who fight to protect our rights should not have the right to attend a college of their choice.
The newsletter, titled “Social Justice Collective Weekly,” states that veterans should be banned from universities because their culture is similar to that of white supremacist groups. It states,
“First off, many veterans openly mock the ideas of diversity and safe spaces for vulnerable members of society. This is directly in contradiction to the mission of UCCS. Many veterans utter the mantra that they, “do not see color”. But the problem lies in their socialization into the military culture that is that of a white supremacist organization. They have been permanently tainted, and are no longer fit for a four-year university.”
The letter goes on to state that veterans are “associated with extremist right-wing groups such as the tea party and the NRA.” According to the Social Justice Collective Weekly, this is why veterans should be banned. It’s yet another example of the left using erroneous allegations of racism to marginalize an entire group of people.
While the leftist organization that posted the newsletter believes that veterans shouldn’t be allowed in 4-year universities, they do feel veterans should be able to attend trade schools or community college. How nice of them.
UCCS has stated that the organization who created the newsletter does not represent the views of the institution. However, the university does allow anyone to post all types of material on their bulletin boards as a way to support free speech. Fortunately, most of the students on campus disagree with the organization’s views.
Student Joe Hollmann said the group is “excluding one of the most important members of society, those that are guarding our freedom to even talk about this.” Caleb Hensley said, “You can’t fight hate with hate.” The newsletter has since been taken down by students.
The social justice movement is growing more brazen in their attempts to attack conservatives. While they claim to be tolerant and accepting, they actively work to marginalize conservative voices on campus and in other areas of society. Their fixation on race and intersectionality has driven them to use false accusations of bigotry to further their political agenda.
The fact that the students did not subscribe to the newsletter’s venom is a good sign. It shows that not all college students are vulnerable to the pernicious influence of the social justice movement.
However, there is still much work to be done as some people on the left wish to use our learning institutions to indoctrinate American students with leftist doctrine. People on both the left and the right should be alarmed by some of the actions of the social justice movement. It is incumbent on all Americans to speak out against this type of behavior.
