How many times have you heard, in the MSM and on the lefty blogger sites, that it is the Religious Right, or Bush Conservatives going around threatening people who disagree with them. It is the Republicans that are the suppressors of free speech, right? That is just so accepted it is conventional wisdom.
Wrong. The Gay Left (and the left-wing in general) are in fact the strident force behind squelching people’s right to free speech. This absurd story out of Rutgers University is only the latest, concrete example of this campaign to make all of America a PC-nation.
Students Split on Grease Truck Names – The Daily Targum (hat tip: GP Reader Keith)
The controversy erupted last week over the names of certain sandwiches served at the Grease Trucks on the College Avenue campus. The University community is varied in its response to the incident, when the Department of Parking and Transportation Services demanded the trucks cover up sandwich names such as “Fat Dyke” and “Fat Bitch” because they violate their contract.
Keith has an excellent perspective:
Has no one told people like these crybabies, to choose their battles carefully. The tone of the “activist-victims” was very negative, and from remarks made, it isn’t clear that they people who were “offended” ever talked to the owners of the grease trucks. They also made claims of not feeling “included.”
Not being included? Well, it seemed they were all too upset about BEING included (aka – “Fat Dyke” sandwich).
I note in the photo, by the way, that “Fat Filipino” was not covered up? What does the LGBT community at Rutgers have against Filipinos, I ask you? Do they think they are all fat? Or it is probably that they just don’t care because it doesn’t match up with their political agenda to destroy free speech.
Let me be perfectly clear… the names of these sandwiches are childish and moronic. But this is college. I thought college was supposed to be the laboratory of free speech. It is, of course, protected for liberal free speech….but no one else… not even childish, moronic free speech.
Isn’t this precisely the type of left-wing fascism that turns people off about the gay community’s activism? It sure makes me scratch my head and wonder where these people’s priorities are.
Gay rights must have come a longer way than the Gay Left wants us to believe…. if the only thing the Rutgers LGBT crowd can get excited about is stupid names for sandwiches on The Grease Truck.
The Gay Thought Police…. in full battle gear, folks! Resistance is futile….
