Politically Correct.

Reader comment on item: Bad News from Slippery Rock

Submitted by Vivian Flamm (United States), Apr 17, 2006 at 20:01

Dear Mr. Pipes:

I was a student at Brooklyn College from 1957-1963. I found there, from many professors,
a stifling atmosphere, driven by the McCarthyism of those times. However, I don't believe
it was any worse than what we are now encountering on campuses. The political correct-
ness that we see today brings with it an air of self righteousness, such that there is no room
for any deviation from that norm.

I happened to find myself on a "liberal" campus during 1993 where I witnessed a witch hunt against an open, creative, bright young man who refused to be coopted by the conformity of the "left." I myself am a "red diaper baby," brought up on the left, and am only too aware of its tendency toward conformity. I find these times dangerous and am appalled by the defense, by feminists and "leftists," of fascist regimes who enslave women and others.

I appreciate your relentless war on evil and your constant fighting of the good fight.
Vivian Flamm,
East Vassalboro, ME
