Students Demand a New College

Western Washington University has for years been quite a hotbed of “progressive” activism, but a group of students has really taken things to a new level with their demand that the school establish the College of Power and Liberation. Read all about it here.

What students would learn in this so-called college would be just to regurgitate leftist slogans, while getting credit for their various kinds of activism. We already have something close to that in many departments, but this would be an entire college.

Will the administration have the sense to tell the red-diaper babies that they don’t run things? Will it ignore them entirely, which be the best course? Or will it sit down with them to discuss their absurd ideas? Place your bets now!
