Insouciant Americans Didn’t Notice the Revolution that Stole their Country
Paul Craig Roberts
Florida Governor DeSantis, seeing that Florida’s universities are suppressing free expression with speech control and normalizing sexual perversity while demonizing normality succeeded in having laws passed against the substitution of indoctrination for education. But the Woke left rule Florida’s Universities, Not Florida Law.
Florida Universities Ignore State Law Against Indoctrinating White Students with the Beliefs they Are Racists and the Constitution Is a Tool of White Oppression of Blacks.
Universities have developed what Cornell Law School Professor William Jacobson calls “systemic repression.” By hiring Woke activists as professors and mandating Woke policies, administrators have created a culture that allows no room for dissent against the demonization of white ethnicities as racists and the denunciation of Western civilization as a monument to white supremacy. In most American universities it is no longer possible for students to be enculturated into the Western tradition. A history major learns that history consists of a series of crimes by white people against people of color. An English major learns African and South American novelists. The voices that connect Americans to their tradition are not heard.
It is the same everywhere. America’s universities are now knives at America’s throat. They are centers of anti-American revolution, not centers of learning. Two generations of young have been deracinated. The break in the transmission of the culture is likely fatal to the continued existence of Western civilization

Stanford University has compiled a list of “Harmful Language.” Among the impermissible words is “American.” https://ijr.com/american-listed-harmful-language-stanford/?utm_source=Email&utm_medium=ijr-weekly&utm_campaign=ijr-2&utm_content=firefly
Laugh. Ha Ha. It is so silly. No, it is not silly. It is deadly serious. While everyone was asleep a revolution has occurred. The revolutionists have the government, the FBI, the CIA, the military, the media, the universities, the public schools, the bar associations, the medical profession. Soon they will have digital money, and then it is all over without a shot fired.
Victor Davis Hanson asks “Are Universities Doomed?” https://amgreatness.com/2022/12/22/are-universities-doomed/
As centers of learning, yes, but they are flourishing as propaganda centers for destroying Western civilization. A question more to the point is: are we doomed by ceasing to pass on the Western tradition?
In the universities sexual perversity is normalized and protected, but normal heterosexuals are “toxic masculinity.” Being a white heterosexual male in an American university today is a horrible dehumanizing experience. His feminist professor views him as a rapist. His black professor views him as a racist. His homosexual or transgendered professor views him as homophobic or transphobic. His belief system is attacked from all directions. He suffers the discrimination that blacks and feminists claim to suffer. He is graded not on merit but on his acceptance of the indoctrination that has taken the place of education. If he is careless with his speech and doesn’t learn the new pronouns or rolls his eyes at some absurd professorial pronouncement, he is toast.
If he manages to graduate, he is disadvantaged in the job market and in his career should one materialize. All private and public employers are committed to diversity and proportional representation in the work force. White male employment and promotion is on hold until blacks, women, and other “preferred minorities” have caught up. We now have a caste system in which white males are the lowest caste.
Consequently, Hanson reports “nationwide undergraduate enrollment has dropped by more than 650,000 students in a single year.” White males account for 71 percent of the drop in enrollment. Females now compose 60 percent of university students. The traditional family based on the male’s income has passed into history.
University budgets and the extremely high tuition are no longer used to hire the best professors to produce the best education. The money is used to hire Soviet-style commissars to police unacceptable speech, unacceptable pronouns, unacceptable thoughts, to protect feminist from “toxic masculinity,” to protect blacks and “peoples of color” from white racism. Victor Davis Hanson reports:
“At Yale University, administrative positions have soared over 150 percent in the last two decades. But the number of professors increased by just 10 percent. In a new low/high, Stanford recently enrolled 16,937 undergraduate and graduate students, but lists 15,750 administrative positions—in near one-to-one fashion.
“In the past, such costly praetorian bloat would have sparked a faculty rebellion. Not now. The new six-figure salaried “diversity, equity, and inclusion” commissars are feared and exempt from criticism.
“Since 2020, the old proportional-representation admissions quotas have expanded into weird ‘reparatory’ admissions. Purported ‘marginalized populations’ have often been admitted at levels greater than percentages in the general population.”
Consequently, admission tests and performance grading are damned as biased and antithetical to diversity.
“To accommodate radical diversity reengineering, the only demographic deemed expendable are white males. Their plunging numbers on campus, especially from the working class, are now much less than their percentages in the general population.”
Stanford University’s projected profile of its class of 2025 is a student body that is only 23 percent white, although white people are 60 percent of the US population.
To accommodate the aristocratic elevation of non-whites, admission requirements are being abolished. To prevent failures and comparison of the performance of the races, grades are being abolished. Deans’ lists and distinctions such as cum laude are being abolished.
The universities are clearly committed to turning out graduates who are alienated from traditional America and who have no appreciative knowledge of Western civilization. Only tyranny can result from the deracination of a people who are enmeshed in Identity Politics.
