The pussification of  students at the University of Iowa

Students at the University of Iowa occupied the Office of the Registrar on Friday after a controversial display was placed in the heart of campus.

The statue – a 7-foot-tall Ku Klux Klan robe with a vinyl hood, an affixed camera and screen-printed newspaper articles chronicling more than 100 years of race riots and hate crimes – was erected at 7 a.m. by Serhat Tanyolacar, a visiting art professor.

The artwork was removed around 10:30 a.m. after officers with the University of Iowa Police Department discovered that Tanyolacar failed to secure a permit for it.

After a gathering outside UI President Sally Mason’s office students moved to the Iowa Memorial Union’s Bijou Cinema to share their emotions about the statue. Vice President for Student Life Tom Rocklin and Georgina Dodge, UI’s chief diversity officer and associate vice president, were present for the discussion.

"Sharing emotions"!  Is that what universiity students now do?  How about having rational discussions?

"Rational Discussions" require Critical Thinking Skills and can involve unfiltered "triggers" which emotionally harm hearers by causing PTSD flashbacks to when their parents used such terms as "no."

Modern University Students majoring in Navel Gazing don't have the constitution for such things.

People have so successfully succeeded in avoiding or eliminating speech which they deem offensive, when they actually have to be exposed to an uncomfortable idea, it elicits "strange emotions". Strange because they have forgotten how to formulate their own ideas or discuss the ideas of others. Pretty pathetic for what passes for a university these days.

UI was just consolidating its left wing brainwashing. Can't have their sheep indulging in independent thinking.
