Amherst is descending into the insatiable maw of vicious political correctness. Let’s spend a week mocking them! This is Day 1.

The Boston Globe provides a useful overview.

A group of 11 students at Amherst College, a private liberal arts school in western Mass., issued a list of 11 demands to administrators that includes making them apologize for signs that mourned the death of free speech.

The group, who call themselves the Amherst Uprising, said the college’s president Biddy Martin must issue a statement to the Amherst College community at large that says the school doesn’t tolerate the actions of students who posted the “All Lives Matter” posters, and the “Free Speech” posters that stated “in memoriam of the true victim of the Missouri Protests: Free Speech.”

Via former professor KC Johnson, this is the sign.up1

Apologies for the poor quality. Does anyone know of a better reproduction? The Globe continues:

“Also let the student body know that it was racially insensitive to the students of color on our college campus and beyond who are victim to racial harassment and death threats;” the post said. “Alert them that Student Affairs may require them to go through the Disciplinary Process if a formal complaint is filed, and that they will be required to attend extensive training for racial and cultural competency.”

Could this all be a joke, or a false flag operation from someone like James O’Keefe? Or could these students actually believe that putting up a poster merits disciplinary action?

“If these goals are not initiated within the next 24 to 48 hours, and completed by November 18th, we will organize and respond in a radical manner, through civil disobedience,” the group wrote. “If there is a continued failure to meet our demands, it will result in an escalation of our response.”

Pass the popcorn! I hope these students bring Amherst to its knees!

By the way, the Amherst Uprising twitter account linked above seems so absurdly over-the-top that it must be a parody. Right?up2

UPDATE: It is a (genius!) parody. Well done Lord Jeffs! Here is the official account.
