Obama Unleashes the Left

It’s obvious that the far left has decided there are no longer constraints on what it can do to anyone who disagrees with it. How did this happen? Who let the dogs out?

The answer is not university presidents. The answer is that the Obama administration let the dogs out.

The trigger event was an agreement signed last May between the federal government and the University of Montana to resolve a Title IX dispute over a sexual-assault case.

Every college administrator in the U.S. knows about this agreement. Indeed, there are three separate, detailed “Montana” documents that were signed jointly—and this is unusual—by the civil-rights divisions of the Justice and Education Departments. Remarked DoJ’s Joceyln Samuels, “The government is stronger when we speak with one voice.”

That’s real muscle. But read the agreement. It is Orwellian.

The agreement orders the school to retain an “Equity Consultant” (yes, there is such a thing) to advise it indefinitely on compliance. The school must, with the equity consultant, conduct “annual climate surveys.” It will submit the results “to the United States.”

The agreement describes compliance in mind-numbing detail, but in fact the actual definitional world it creates is vague. It says: “The term ‘sexual harassment’ means unwelcome conduct of a sexual nature.” But there are also definitions for sexual assault and gender-based harassment. All of this detailed writ is called “guidance.” As in missile.

Full story.

    Thoughtcrime is doubleplusungood. Groupthink is the only way in the glorious 1000 year Hopetopia. If you think properly a seat at the back of the cafe and generous vodka rations await.

    Forward Comrades! The great leap forward to the glorious utopia where those who are not party apparatchiks live in favelas with an 80% increase in electric bills with rolling blackouts and the party apparatchiks live in luxurious dachas with the finest caviar served by the little people staff.
    Forward to piles of horse shit on the streets which are worth it because the evil internal combustion engine is gone.
    Forward to the producing nothing economy where the central planning bureau redistributes to each according to his need.
    Forward to the neo-feudalist global serf plantation. Yes we can!
