During my rather prolonged journey toward academic enlightenment, I have become increasingly aware of this universitys slide toward political correctness, speech codes, institutionalized promotion of homosexuality, and the myriad of typical liberal policies and philosophy that now pervades most of the institutions of higher learning.
This stampede toward institutional indoctrination in liberal speech and thought now is apparent in nearly aspect of the average students life. From the first week after a freshmans arrival on campus, he or she is immediately "educated" about the evils of homophobism, ageism, heterosexism, ableism and every other "ism" that is destroying the world.
Apparently, the solution is that we all just love one another, hold hands, hug a tree and all the worlds problems will just go away. In the dorms, one is overwhelmed by the barrage of posters, sensitivity videos and speakers there to correct the misguided teachings of our parents and culture.
We are then properly prepared so that we can be infused (if you are white) with the guilt that we should carry for the rest of our lives for Columbus accidental discovery of this continent. The students are steered along this course by that ever-helpful SA staff, fresh from their multiculturalism training. The dorm staff, rather suspiciously, is disproportionally composed of gays, lesbians, bisexuals and ex-drug and alcohol abusers. Several friends of mine have gone through the application process and dicovered that a personal life free from personal problems or sexual dysfunction, let alone extreme leftist views, is the guarantee that you wont get the job.
Sooner or later the average student at this university will be further "educated" by the warmed over, 60s nostalgic professor or occasional open Marxist about the sole responsibility and blame white males and this nation must accept for all war, environmental problems, class conflicts, poverty, forms of racism and crime (S103 and PO131 are just a couple of these propaganda classes available).
It has been said that Marxism still exists only in a few backward countries and, unfortunately, on college campuses.
If you have a little time on your hands there exists the endless variety of radical feminist, alternative lifestyle, pagan Aztlan secessionist, hamster have rights too, save the earth the sky is falling student organizations and groups in which to practice your newly instilled, politically correct ideology.
Then, of course, this spring we will all have the wonderful "unofficially" sponsored assortment of replacement holidays to celebrate. These include the ever popular Earth "trash city park" Day, National Coming Out Day (my personal favorite), and to round everything out, BGLAD (Bisexual, Gay, Lesbian Awareness Days) week.
Grandma and apple pie have been replaced with protest marches, rainbow flag-raising ceremonies and lesbian literature lectures. This, my friends, is only a small look into the much larger radical culture that is trying to force itself onto both the CSU student population and society as a whole.
The truth is often stranger than fiction. When I tell others in my family and in the community at large (everybody from state legislators to waitresses) about the goings on here at CSU, the feedback is a combination of disgust and disbelief.
Few can believe what I mentioned above, or even that the "champion of free speech," the Collegian, actively censors such horribly offensive words as "lady," "chairman," (even if it is the constitutional title of an officer in a student organization), and "miss" while in the past printing a variety of swear words and pictures containing nudity and puppets engaging in the act of sodomy (dont ask).
I urge you as my fellow students to not bow down and worship the false gods of the left. Stand your ground, open your eyes and defend the morals, values and responsibilities that you know are right.
