The universities have become cesspools of over-the-top “wokeness.”
Not even liberals are safe.
And Hillary Clinton is rethinking her professor gig after one jaw-dropping incident.
Hillary Clinton will be teaching a course on global affairs at Columbia University, so if students are interested in how to incite foreign conflicts as Secretary of State, they can earn course credit.
However, Clinton might want to rethink her teaching gig because the students on college campuses are not the establishment Democrats to which she has become accustomed.
Many of them are full-blown communists.
Columbia professor out
Esteemed theater director Andrei Serban resigned his position at Columbia University for pressure over what he deemed “political correctness” pressures.
Serban, who fled Romania, explained in an interview, “I felt like I was living under communism again,” Serban said of the woke radicalism at Columbia.
The Woke Mobs on college campuses today will literally go after anyone for anything with their demands to bend the knee for even the slightest perceived transgressions.
It’s unlikely that even Hillary Clinton will be immune.
The latest example of campus craziness took place at a small private college in Saint Paul, Minnesota called Hamline University.
Minnesota professor canned for showing a centuries-old painting of the wrong person
Adjunct professor Erika López Prater was fired from her position after showing a 14th-century painting of the Islamic prophet Muhammad.
Showing artistic depictions of Muhammad is considered blasphemy, as evidenced by the horrific terrorist attack on French periodical Charlie Hebdo.
However, Prater didn’t spring the painting on unsuspecting students.
She gave multiple “trigger warnings” in advance, and no students objected…until after she actually showed the painting.
Now leftists are split on whether or not Prater’s punishment was justified.
Aram Wedatalla, a Muslim student of Sudanese descent, was the person who reported Prater to the higher-ups.
Wedatalla said in a school newspaper interview, “I’m like, ‘This can’t be real’…As a Muslim and a Black person, I don’t feel like I belong, and I don’t think I’ll ever belong in a community where they don’t value me as a member, and they don’t show the same respect that I show them.”
Wedatalla refused to address the multiple trigger warnings she was given on the syllabus, before, and during class.
Seemingly she was looking for a reason to get offended and make a big fuss.
PEN America, a literary society and human rights organization, said in a statement that the incident was “one of the most egregious violations of academic freedom in recent memory.”
Ironically, Islam seems to be the only religion leftists show any deference to at all.
If a student had voiced discomfort over a mockery of Jesus, the school probably would’ve laughed at the complainant.
Hillary Clinton should think long and hard about her teaching gig because there are plenty of Bernie Bros at Columbia who hate her guts.
And there are probably plenty who don’t think to fondly of her adventures in Libya during the Obama administration.
Clinton made the call in 2011 as then-Secretary of State to back a bombing campaign against highly-devout Muslim ruler of Libya, Muammar Gaddafi that resulted in his grizzley end at the hands of NATO-backed rebels.
Clinton at the time shared a laugh with a television news reporter moments after hearing about it, saying “We came, we saw, he died.”

Of course, that triggered a descent into more chaos in the country and ultimately resulted in the death of four Americans in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012.
