Kimberly Morin writes that as if social justice warriors weren’t bad enough, now a university wants to pay people to be ignorant and uninformed snowflakes.
It doesn’t get any more ridiculous than that. While many people have been pointing out just how pathetic college students have become, the University of Arizona now wants to pay students to be actual snowflakes.
Story. The University of Arizona not only encourages snowflake behavior, but they are now actually paying for students to be advocates of “social justice.” This is a term the left made up to feign outrage about anything and everything that may bother one person about another person. From Campus Reform:
According to an online job description, Social Justice Advocates, or SJAs for short, “will be responsible for instituting monthly programmatic efforts within the residence halls that focus specifically on social justice issues,” such as setting up “bulletin boards in the halls” and hosting “social justice modules once a month for the RAs.”
Brown shirts. Basically the university is going to pay these people to spy on fellow students for saying anything a snowflake would deem “inappropriate.” Campus Reform goes on:
Successful applicants will be expected to “report any bias incidents or claims to appropriate Residence Life staff” in addition to hosting bi-semesterly “Real Talks” with dorm residents.
“The position also aims to increase understanding of one’s own self through critical reflection of power and privilege, identity and intersectionality, systems of socialization, cultural competency, and allyship as they pertain to the acknowledgement, understanding, and acceptance of differences,” the job description elaborates, noting that the ultimate goal of the position is to “increase a student staff member’s ability to openly lead conversations, discuss differences, and confront diversely insensitive behavior.”
Openly lead conversations? On what, how to infringe upon the freedom of ideas, discussion, and speech of others if it disagrees with the extreme leftism of social justice warriors? Really?
Why this Matters? This matters because it’s bad enough that colleges and universities are destroying the free discussion of ideas, but now they are paying people to destroy those ideas. And they are paying people who freely roam the campus with fellow students.
God forbid a student has a differing ideology from these people. The problem with these left wing SJWs is they can’t handle differing ideas. Everyone must think alike or they should be doomed to hell or thrown of campus.
Don’t send your kids to this university if you want them to actually learn how to think for themselves.
