Kudos To University Of Chicago's Banning Of Free Spaces

While an iron curtain of political correctness and a pogrom of conservative thought on college campus is the new norm
The University of Chicago’s action is becoming against leftist circles becoming the perfect academic storm
No more will the U of C create “safe spaces” or ban “triggers” and ”micro aggressions” where speech is curtailed
Any attempts by the left to ban or disrupt discussion of differing thoughts or ideas will fail
College is supposed the time when students leave the nest
To confront different ideas and views that other students and professors might suggest
It is not the time to turn students into lobsters, crabs or snakes
To shed their skins to be unprotected and from the hearing of different ideas tremble and quake
We humans were given a brain and the ability to create independent thoughts
In the PC world of conformity and uniformity that ability will wither and rot
To surround the students with the “protection” of the PC moat
Means that on entering the stormy seas of the real world, they will be ill prepared to stay afloat.
The University of Chicago should receive for its actions our highest acclaim
All other universities who bow to the PC thought stifling police should hang their heads in shame.
