Halloween. It is an ancient celebration. In a very real sense, it is meant to be scary. But we can’t have our delicate university students be “scared.” We need to protect them!

God forbid the student pictured above would show up at a University Halloween function. The horror of it!
[From Dr. William’s article] University of Florida, officials have warned students about sporting offensive costumes, appealing to “diversity.”
“Some Halloween costumes reinforce stereotypes of particular races, genders, cultures, or religions,” the university noted. “Regardless of intent, these costumes can perpetuate negative stereotypes, causing harm and offense to groups of people.”
In a scathing article in Forbes last spring, the noted historian Paul Johnson called political correctness “one of the most dangerous intellectual afflictions ever to attack mankind.”
PC has “enormous appeal to the semieducated,” Johnson observed, and it “appeals to pseudo-intellectuals everywhere, since it evokes the strong streak of cowardice notable among those wielding academic authority nowadays.”
“Any empty-headed student with a powerful voice can claim someone (never specified) will be ‘hurt’ by a hitherto harmless term, object or activity and be reasonably assured that the dons and professors in charge will show a white feather and do as the student demands,” he said.
“Thus, there isn’t a university campus on either side of the Atlantic that’s not in danger of censorship,” he concluded.
If in spite of all warnings if any precious flower happens to be traumatized by a particular costume at the University of Florida, officials have set up an emergency hotline to help soothe anxious spirits.
If you are “troubled by an incident,” the website counseled, “please take advantage of the 7 day a week presence of the U Matter, We Care program,” which includes an email address as well as “a 24/7 counselor in the Counseling and Wellness Center available to speak by phone.”
Not content with coddling the victims of costume abuse, the university is also prepared to punish and reeducate offenders.
[My friends, are you at all familiar with the “reeducation camps” in Vietnam. This was the official title given to the prison camps operated by the Communist government of Vietnam following the end of the Vietnam War. We are that close! Mark my words!]
The eerily named “Bias Education and Response Team” at the University of Florida is ready to “respond to any reported incidents of bias, to educate those that were involved, and to provide support by connecting those that were impacted to the appropriate services and resources.”
[Are you familiar with the term, Sturmabteilung, literally Storm Detachment, who functioned as the original paramilitary wing of the Nazi Party. They were known as the Brown Shirts. They “came” for you. “You” were never heard from again – RF.]
… At Brock University, the list of “Prohibited Halloween Costumes & Accessories” covers Caitlyn Jenner, Muslims, Geishas, and Native Americans. (Geishas? Really? – RF)
However, if you want to make fun of priests, nuns, rabbis, and police officers with your costume, have at it! I guess no one is worried that Christians, Catholics or the sons and daughters of police officers will be offended.
Just perfect. Dear readers, you are watching America go down the drain.
And thanks to JM for sending this to me.
