    ^ Always did like that line!

    Meanwhile,at The Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington, they’re preparing for an enrollment decline of 20% and a budget gap of $6 million in the wake of last year’s leftist “protests” – brought on when the kids didn’t get their way: they demanded that all white people leave the campus so that they could conduct “diversity workshops”. Didn’t go over so well. Riot police were called in.

    Now people don’t want to spend money to send their kids there. Funny how that works.

    Washington and Lee banning that book is pretty darn funny.
    Wouldn’t want to glorify one of the men the frigging university is named for.
    If you put that in a distopian famtasy you’d be, rightly, ridiculed.
    A few years ago FrnakJ of IMAO wondered if we were all in a Borat movie. It’s hard to argue we’re not.

    “…after the book and a book signing event at the university were advertised … the administration received a complaint from a professor who objected to the content of the book.”
    The proper response would have been to shove a copy up the professor’s ass, then fire him/her.
    I’m surprised the jackass even went to work for a university named after two great men slaveholders. I guess that makes him/her a whore for money.

    Perhaps it wasn’t named for Marsh Robert, but Lighthorse Harry Lee.
    Well, okay, no, reckon that wouldn’t be much better.

    Wait, I’ve got it!

    Let me guess – the book is no good because the horse was white and male??

    You’d think since he was a gelded white male they’d be fer it.
    But what do I know?

    The university tried to explain itself by claiming that the book wasn’t peer-reviewed….
