    Left-Wing Madness at Butler University

    November 29, 2012
    By Bruce Bawer

    Earlier this week, a link at Instapundit led me to a piece by one Ryan Lovelace, a gutsy college journalism major who has dared to tell the truth about the curricular lunacy at the place where he’s studying, “a small Midwestern liberal arts institution in Indianapolis” called Butler University. His primary focus is on Political Science 201: Research and Analysis, a class taught by a black woman who calls on students, in the name of “social justice,” to use “inclusive language,” meaning language that “affirms sexuality, racial and ethnic backgrounds,” and so on, and that, Lovelace writes, expects students “to disregard their ‘American-ness, maleness, whiteness, heterosexuality, middle-class status’ when writing and speaking in the classroom.”

    Just sounds like a linguistic experiment in one class, not a general program of repression or anything. Where is the problem?

    Butler University - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Butler University is a private university located in Indianapolis, Indiana. Founded in 1855 and named after founder Ovid Butler, the university offers 60 degree programs to 4,400 students through six colleges: business, communication, education, liberal arts and sciences, pharmacy and health sciences, and fine arts. It comprises a 290-acre (1.2 km2) campus located 7 miles (11 km) from downtown Indianapolis.

    ...........................................................................................

    Butler University was founded by members of the Disciples of Christ church, though it was never controlled by the church.[8] The university charter called for "a non-sectarian institution free from the taint of slavery, offering instruction in every branch of liberal and professional education."[8] The university was the first in Indiana and the third in the U.S. to admit both men and women. Butler was the first university in the United States to endow a chair designated specifically for a woman, the Demia Butler Chair (endowed in 1869). Catharine Merrill, the first person to hold the chair, became the second woman named to be a professor in an American university.[8]

    The university established the first professorship in English literature and the first Department of English in the state of Indiana.[8]

    Since it is a private university, seems you have no say in any agenda there.

    This from those saying everyone must say "merry Christmas" and not "happy holidays" and "keep Christ In Xmas"

    Those shoving PC language on others need not complain about rejecting whiteness nor maleness nor the other terms.

    Sure it is if you consistently put women and minorities front and center first. Then Christian holidays and whiteness get included after. The whole idea is getting rid of force of habit. It is how you successfully do healthy things like quitting smoking and losing weight. Works for keeping one's mind healthy, too.

    Happy Kwanza and Regards from Rosie
