Reader’s comment: The claptrap generation


In response to Kathy Gyngell: Refusing to bow to the diktats of the Left, Peter Evans wrote:
Ben Shapiro, despite the misfortune of having a voice that always reminds me of Bugs Bunny or Daffy Duck, has the heart of a lion.

Here are some examples of the kind of swivel-eyed, truth-butchering, lying claptrap that intersectionalist neoMarxist professors pump into their students’ minds (it’s by British YouTuber Carl Benjamin under his video pseudonym Sargon of Akkad and comes with a strong language warning):

Given that New Labour massively increased the numbers of people coming into the universities to study fake academic disciplines such as Women’s Studies, Gender Studies, the various Ethnic Studies (not to mention the social sciences and humanities which they’ve successfully corrupted) – all of them infested with these scientifically and historically illiterate extremist ‘academic’ goons – it’s hardly surprising that a generation of ‘graduates’ emerge knowing nothing about scholarship and the truthful pursuit of knowledge.

They emerge as activists, not scholars. And then they take up jobs in all our major institutions, including the police, social services, think tanks, NGOs, as well as becoming SJW MPs in our multiculturalist-intersectionalist Uniparty, where they represent their ideology, not the electorate.

Countering this, alas, is akin to cleaning out the Augean stables. But unless we do, we’re done for. Encouraging young undergraduates to adopt Bartleby’s ‘I would prefer not to’ might be a start, but it’s an inoculation against ideological lies that has to be administered long before they get there.
