More Of What’s Under The Rock

Bryan at Hot Air managed to secure an interview with Dr. Linda Gottfredson of the University of Delaware who, along with her colleague Dr. Jan Blits, were instrumental in getting FIRE all fired up about the Orwellian indoctrination program that the university had imposed on students. (My previous posts on that abomination here and here.) Bryan has the audio of the interview and part of a transcript of it. It is pretty shocking just how bad the program really was and how the U of D administration has misrepresented it while trying to distance themselves from it. Go over and listen or read.

    The origins of “political correctness” harken back to the early days of the USSR when Lenin instituted a program to direct the Soviet republics’ citizens to “correct political thinking.” This led to purges, forced confessions [which the RA one-on-one with the students eeriely reminds one of], and all the insane totalitarian how-to-do agendas that Arthur Koestler brilliantly exposed in “Darkness at Noon,” a book unfortunately blackballed as students are force-fed essays in English class on “cosmopolitanism” by Kwame Appiah. I know because my daughter has been subjected to a dialogue by an ESL Cuban TA at her state university who keeps sending her submissions on “cosmopolitanism” and “little loyalties” by an author named Nathan who wrote AnyU back for redaction until my daughter regurgitates the party line.

    Mind you—-this is ENGLISH WRITING CLASS. On the other hand, her International Political Economics professer, a man of some erudition despite his liberal tendencies, actually engages in dialogue and discourse with her!

    So the leftist agitpreppies are using English writing classes and dormitory RAs to infect the students with Leninist principles.

    It is heartening to see that FIRE was tipped off by insiders at U of D. Now one wonders what will be the fate of the tipsters? They are obviously traitors to the cause.
