But today is about an event that occurs once a year in 12 Days.
Background: I loved Halloween. Hell, for a few years back in the ’00’s I was a Professional Facepainter so I really do excited by it.
But this is another thing the Leftist are killing with their Political Correctness.
Something, I think that has real chance of being banned within in the next Generation for being politically incorrect.
The Ignorant Narcissist Generation we have now of lots of mass stupidity in the next 20-30 years or more.
With “culturally Inappropriate” this and “racist” that I honestly am sick of Halloween for the first time in my life.
But at least there is this… (from Campus Reform)
- A hotline for University of Florida students to report culturally insensitive Halloween costumes has backfired after a Fox Sports commentator instigated a series of prank calls to the number.
- Fox Sports commentator Clay Travis prank called the line during one of his live shows, pretending to be a gay student offended by a Harambe costume, and then shared the number with his audience.
- Since then, at least 40 prank calls have come in, taxing the hotline’s resources by forcing the school to investigate false reports.
UF sent a newsletter to students on October 10 encouraging them to avoid Halloween costumes that could “perpetuate negative stereotypes” or cause “harm and offense” to other students, and urging anyone offended by such costumes to call a 24/7 counseling and wellness hotline.
“It drives me crazy how much of wusses these college kids are these days…”
The hotline quickly turned into a running joke, however, after Fox Sports commentator Clay Travis prank called the line during one of his live shows, pretending to be a gay student offended by a Harambe costume.
“I went to a fraternity party last night and there was somebody dressed as Harambe, the gorilla, and I found it to be really racially insensitive,” Travis said on the call. “It’s really disappointing that the University of Florida is not taking my microaggressions seriously because, I mean, I’m really upset about this costume that I saw.”
The Alligator reports that Travis’ call inspired his listeners to prank the hotline as well, leading to more than 40 false reports that taxed the hotline’s resources. Travis said he first learned of the hotline from a reader and wanted to use the prank phone call to satirize overly-sensitive college students before giving the hotline’s number out to his listeners.
“It drives me crazy how much of wusses these college kids are these days with their microaggressions and their trigger warnings and their safe spaces,” Travis explained during his radio show.
UF spokeswoman Janine Sikes said the prank calls have clogged up the hotline, which is not exclusively for students to complain about Halloween costumes, but rather is a general line intended for students suffering from any type of crisis or mental health issue.
Which is every 3-5 seconds these days with The Narccisstic Snowflakes…
“Our role is to support students,” Sikes told The Alligator, “and when we are diverted to having to deal with people calling in fake reports, we aren’t there to help our students.”
Yeah, the evil person who microaggressed them by making them uncomfortable because they dared to have an unapproved opinion that they didn’t like and it sent them into a tail spin of stress and anxiety…Oh, the Humanity!!! 🙂
In addition to calling the wellness hotline, the newsletter also encouraged students to email the “U Matter, We Care” program and report offensive costumes to the Bias Education and Response Team so they can “educate those that were involved.”
Sikes, though, protested that the newsletter regarding Halloween costumes was simply a reminder to students to be sensitive to others when choosing a costume, and not any sort of university edict or policy.
“The university in no way is regulating Halloween costumes,” she argued. “Our students are free to wear whatever costumes they want.”
Yeah, right… Blame it on You Tube, It works for Hillary…
The University of Massachusetts, Amherst is posting “cultural appropriation” posters in each of the residence halls on campus featuring a detailed “racism evaluation and assessment meter.”
The initiative is being spearheaded by the Center for Women and Community, the Center for Multicultural Advancement and Student Success, and the campus’ diversity office, the Stonewall Center.
“It’s not fair to ask any culture to freeze itself in time and live as though they were a museum diorama.”
“Don’t be an asshole,” one display urges students, providing several leaflets to help them understand the effects of cultural appropriation.
I hate Liberals…They ME want to Scream!
