I was already reached out to today because of fairly innocuous posts on my Facebook (like very pale, I've kept my Facebook feed clean for years but have liked my friends posts) have apparently been reported to my university's authorities.  I suspect I won't be teaching surgery next fall.

That's terrible.

 

This world is becoming a nightmare.

Prepared to defend Syria to the last GI, some brits.

However, if one considers that Obama was helping the "moderate" Islamist headhunters and slavers instead of the religious-tolerant Syrian government, then some things make sense.

Yes, Daesh ceased to be a problem during Trump's watch. Suck it up.

agreed...why if only there was a European Organization that could take action in the absence of the US...

That was inevitable, I think.

Their caucus won’t agree to that, particularly the guy in WV. But if they do fine, IMO the GOP lost its right to exist when it contested the vote even after the riot that Trump fermented and made no effort to stop for hours. Either remove your rabid dog, or be removed.

The guy in WV is a con artist, he'll be there if needed. Who's the rabid dog? Trump did call for calm and following the law but social media banned him and took down those posts, the narrative after all.

The Purge is real and we'll see a lot more of it, even here. The volunteer Red Guard will rush to prove their loyalty to the cause. The New Stasi will have plenty of help rounding up the counter revolutionaries. Enjoy it, at least until it eats you.

The woke world is a world of snitches, informants, rats. Go to any space concerned with social justice and what will you find? Endless surveillance. Everybody is to be judged. Everyone is under suspicion. Everything you say is to be scoured, picked over, analyzed for any possible offense. Everyone’s a detective in the Division of Problematics, and they walk the beat 24/7. You search and search for someone Bad doing Bad Things, finding ways to indict writers and artists and ordinary people for something, anything.

Extreme LW and biased rant, with some naivete, but some value to it.

Yep, 99% of the people drunk with influence and searching for heretics will be declared a heretic eventually.

So that opinion about Stalin being a great man because not one in History has killed so many Communists.

As near as I can tell they were offended by my liking a SWAT cop friend's posts where he broke down and analyzed from an IA perspective the various police shootings in the news.  The funny thing is he extensively criticized the cops actions and approach to the situations, he just didn't agree that they were objectively murder.

On the positive side, it has been a valuable teaching moment for my daughters and their friends so there is a silver lining.  When a black or Muslim 14 year old protests that their dad isn't a horrible racist and I get to tell them it doesn't matter their eyes may open slightly.

Funny you should talk about the word "murder." That is now a constant theme in black America. When cops shoot a black guy who started a gunfight, a lot of black people are calling that "murder." Dishonesty has become the norm. Not a new thing, it was blatantly obvious already during the Trayvon Martin debacle. Easier to maintain your hatreds by using lies for justification.

Let me repeat the advice on the other thread, that is harassment and your U should have a policy to protect you from that which you should leverage.

You're kidding right?  My engineering university has already stated that social justice is their primary cause for the year.  The offices have preferred pronouns on the name plates.  Trust me when I say that if my dean (who I like and respect a lot) decides I have run afoul of their code of conduct nobody will have my back.  To the left, it isn't harassment, it is getting  a racist away from influencing students.

I know, but they always code that in written policies, and you need to leverage those against them.

For example, one time my boss thought I screwed up and my boss was dressing me down in a higher pitched voice, i pointed out that such attitude would go against the CoC and the anti-harassment policy, that we both acknowledge on a regular basis... :D Doesn't matter who was right, what mattered was the tone. 😮

Let's say in some parts of the United States a gay couple could sue a mom-and-pop bakery if they do not want to bake them a cake, and win the case, but a social network could ban the President of the United States because trumped-up (ha!) charges, and the President could do nothing.

I am not exaggerating.

No, you are not, and the cases are not comparable, due to Terms and conditions.

Nor are they comparable to this case either, where the employer holds the short stick most likely.

But not just the president. A whole range of individuals or groups based on right leaning politics. 

BLM still has a presence. The Ayatollah of Iran still has a presence. China still has a presence. 

The reason isn't threats of violence or ideology, it's politics.

Every university has codes of conduct and every one that I know of has prohibitions against racism, inciting violence and discrimination. Those are vague enough that in an era where major corporations and federal agencies are forcing their employees to sit for training rants about unconscious bias and the evil of white people that anything not considered woke is by default an example of racism,  Every university is also flat out terrified of being publicly targeted by the left and then their students for not being sufficiently woke and supportive of social justice.  Were my admin stupid enough to publicly fight for me they would be gone in a heartbeat and justify ably so.  The damage to the university and the jobs of thousands of people would be put in jeopardy.  I manage a team of over 70 people.  Would I risk my job to do what's right?  I'd like to think so and in some small ways I suppose that I have.  Would I risk the livelihood of the 70+ people in my department?  Not unless it was a true physical harm that was in question.  That is why the left has created a situation of collective guilt and why it is so effective.  Even if you're willing to martyr yourself the people with the nobility to do are going to be the most protective of the family and employees that depend on them.

My dean is a good man and I have happy dedicated students so I suspect nothing concrete will come of this.  I doubt if that was the point.  The point was to let me know that I am being watched and inflict some doubt in my head about what I post in the future.  I have already noticed that my natural response is to get angry and double down so we will see how that plays out in the near term.

Biden adopts a policy of systemic racism and sexism.

Quote

Our priority will be Black, Latino, Asian, and Native American owned small businesses, women-owned businesses, and finally having equal access to resources needed to reopen and rebuild
