Propagandizing alive and well at Northern Arizona University
Today is April Fools’ Day, so it’s fitting that we draw attention to Dr. Anne Scott, a Northern Arizona University professor. Scott, 59, is so caught up in leftist political correctness that she finds the word “mankind” unacceptable. So unacceptable, in fact, that she docked an English major NAU student a grade point for using it.
Student Cailin Jeffers is giving the irrational action the exposure it deserves, saying “In one of these examples she stated that we could not use the word ‘mankind.’ Instead, we should use ‘humankind.’ I thought this was absurd, and I wasn’t sure if she was serious.”
To parents contemplating sending your kids to this bastion of higher learning, check out the 2016 – 2017 undergrad tuition and fee schedule. Can you possibly think you’re getting the best bang for your buck here, when their intent is to propagandize rather than educate?
Last year, Princeton University sent out this memo informing faculty and staff that they must stop using the word “man” and “other male-leaning language.’ Instead they are to substitute preferable, gender-neutral terminology that must now be used in official school documents.
As reported in Campus Reform, “Multiple professors at Washington State University have explicitly told students their grades will suffer if they use terms such as ‘illegal alien,’ ‘male,’ and ‘female,’ or if they fail to ‘defer’ to non-white students” who don’t have the benefit of ‘white privilege.’
Fortunately, Seeing Red AZ bows to no such constraints, since we believe accuracy matters. Illegal aliens are not immigrants, They are also not undocumented, since they often carry plenty of documentation, counterfeit, stolen or belonging to children.
The punishment for repeatedly using the banned words, a Washington State instructor warns, includes “but [is] not limited to removal from the class without attendance or participation points, failure of the assignment, and— in extreme cases— failure for the semester.”
Brainwashing reaches soaring new heights when it becomes a threat tied to dire consequences.
