Tales From The Safe Space, Part 43 – DePaul University Censors Pro-Life Conservatives To Placate Black Lives Matter

“…we have declined to host a proposed speaker and asked students to redesign a banner that provokes the Black Lives Matter movement…”

The president of the university is afraid to provoke Black Lives Matter.

Given a choice between a life-affirming message which might annoy BLM, and cowardice, the president of a Catholic university chose cowardice.  This is how institutions fail.  

Semi-Partisan Politics


Appeasing the gods of social justice and identity politics now overrides a Catholic university’s commitment to Catholicism itself

It is now indisputable: Black Lives Matter are rapidly becoming the one absolutely holy and inviolable interest group on American college campuses, a favoured priesthood of living saints who must be protected from blasphemy and offence at all costs.

There really is no other way to describe the privilege enjoyed by this organisation following the news that DePaul University in Chicago – a Catholic institution – recently banned a poster produced by the DePaul College Republicans because their catchphrase “Unborn Lives Matter” is supposedly deliberately provocative and hurtful to the delicate Black Lives Matter snowflakes.

I repeat: the president of a Catholic university actively suppressed the free speech of his own students because they dared to publicly support traditional Catholic teaching on the sanctity of life and the rights of unborn children –…

    Abortion affects blacks disproportionately, and is the biggest single killer of African Americans. Abortion is one of the main reasons they don’t overtake the white population demographically, and remain a minority. If they object to this sign, perhaps they should change the name of their group, since the only black lives that seem to matter to them is those which end due to law enforcement or self defense.

    A guy who got into shootouts often and killed several, who was then shot by police when he refused to drop his weapon would trigger them, but not if he was died in one of the above mentioned gun battles. His victims wouldn’t trigger them either. If he was aborted before it could reach that point, well, that’s also fine with them. Black on black crime isn’t an issue, and it really doesn’t matter what the color of the abortion doctor. Rather, pointing out the level of black on black crime is considered racist by these idiots. Perhaps they should rename themselves “Opposing civilization matters.” Or perhaps that is just too on the nose.

        The only things that matter are what can be used rhetorically to achieve their political aims. The things that go against those aims, not only don’t matter, they’re actively suppressed. Violently, when they can get away with it… though it isn’t quite to the level of rebellion.

        Browncoats show up all the time in history, but they rarely find a Hitler… or in more civilized times, when one shown up and demonstrated his treasonous spirit though treasonous acts, he’d be drawn and quartered. These days, rather than such a gentle and reasonable means of dealing with such problems, we give them university tenure and they become besties with future presidents. Which shows how much we’ve fallen as a civilization.

      • One tiny nit to pick, it’s brownshirts. Browncoats are fans of Firefly and Serenity,

    I took an MS degree at a Catholic University in the late ’80s. The SJW rot was in place long before I was there (didn’t effect my classes; Linear Algebra doesn’t much care about Social Justice) and kept sliding ever leftward.
