Over 400 colleges and universities now have so-called politically correct “Speech Codes.” And a growing number of those campuses have actually relegated our constitutionally protected Freedom of Expression to small areas (some of them very small areas).
The need for “Free Speech Zones” on college campuses in America! That is truly a new low in the standards of our alleged institutions of “higher” learning. Now that is offensive! And the kicker is, while it once was faculty that encouraged such foolishness, the recent trend shows the so-called progressive “we’re entitled” students are now spearheading the movement. Obviously they no longer want to learn, they want to be babysat and protected from all of life’s alternate possibilities that may challenge their infantile but comfortable state of mind.
The following is my opinion of the new “poor, poor pitiful me” student trend:
Boo hoo! (Sniffle snert, whine-whine, whaa-whaa!)
You have us crying for you
You sit there so weak and blue
How can you be expected to
Study in your new school
Cuz’ someone has “offended” you
You advocate speaking rules
Led along by PC gurus
Who’d rather see you grow up fools
Ignorant of critical thinking tools
Like Freedom of Speech and the Right to Choose
You play the “victim card,” you do
We see “entitlement” is for you
You really haven’t got a clue
Why the wise old owl asks, “Who?”
So you live the opposite of true
Did a bad word make you hurt?
Shall we change your diaper and shirt?
Are your panties wadded under your skirt?
Is discomfort causing you to blurt…
Out this no more free speech “doo-doo” dirt?
Gosh, I’m a mean ol’ swine
Cuz’ I won’t toe your PC line
And I think Free Speech is mighty fine
In fact, I’m sure we’ll never align…
Till you burn your “No free speech” sign
Shall we burp you now with “oohs and aahs?”
Or take your temperature just because
Somebody’s words make you want a “ba-ba?”
But I still have hope
Someday when you can see how PC laws
And the PC Police
Are nothing but a social disease…
You too can have “big boy briefs” or “big girl panties”
Now remember to walk in a straight line to university classes… children.
