These are the kinds of people who spent their entire Ivy League or liberal arts education arguing that the U.S. Constitution is the nation’s “greatest achievement ”— the ones whose “impressionable” kids caused a national uproar when their exam answer was marked wrong because they disagreed that the U.S. Constitution is a racist document designed to perpetuate white supremacy.
That probably wasn’t the best way to phrase the exam question (and multiple choice isn’t the best way to evaluate opinions), but it takes a certain kind of privilege and power to followup your pedantic complaints with a successful legal battle with changes made not just for yourself but for everyone — not just at your university but everywhere!
Can you imagine being so upset about your views being marginalized — and so powerful — that your case results in immediate class action and an executive order to limit First Amendment rights in DEI courses and programs at all institutions receiving federal or state funds (i.e. all institutions)?
First Amendment! (Clearly, it would nly applies to them)
EO 13950 has since been banned nationwide by a preliminary injunction in federal district court, but it took several months of legal inefficiency just to start the undoing process (thanks to judicial system established by the supreme law of the land).
Yeah, elite conservatives are using their fancy education alright. Just not for the wellbeing of the whole population.
