OBERLIN COLLEGE VIRTUE SIGNALLING WILL COST $44 MILLION
Oberlin College virtue signalling appears to have cost 44 million dollars.
Social justice warriors are engaged in an imaginary war. A war against perceived slights, micro aggressions to use their terminology. They’re in a war against free speech, because if people are allowed to say what they want to say, SJWs might be offended. A war against straight white males, because they’re all somehow direct descendants of Hitler himself and should be shamed for their ‘privilege’, regardless of their individual circumstances. A war against science, because human biology throws a fork in their fictional narrative that gender is an entirely social construct. They’re in a war against higher education, because the college campus is where social justice warriors are recruited, brainwashed, and trained as activists. Especially so in the liberal arts, where students study grievance in order obtain degrees that are equal parts worthless and useless. They’re in a war against discourse and logic, because they refuse to deploy it. And they’re in a war for power, because if these woe is me victims of life get their way, they’ll finally topple the structurally racist, inherently unjust, and white supremacist lead patriarchy once and for all!
Social justice warriors employ very specific strategies for battle, including mindless chants to drown out voices of reason.
Self appointed deputies of the politically correct police department are triggered to anger by the slightest of offenses as a way to show the other members of the SJW army how woke they are to corruption. This tactic is referred to by the sane as ‘virtue signaling’.
Mass reporting ‘problematic content’ on social media is another of their tactics, where this horde of collectivists gang up on one individual in order to stamp out his or her free speech. It’s political correctness gone awry, and taken to an extreme.
But crybaby tactics don’t always work. Case and point, Oberlin College, where they put the ‘liberal in liberal arts’, will have to pay $44 million dollars after it’s social justice warrior students combined all of their tactics and aimed them at Gibson’s Bakery.
The story is simple, some students tried to steal wine and were reprimanded by an employee of the bakery. There was a small tussle, and the students were arrested. No big deal.
Not at Oberlin! After noticing the students involved in the shoplifting happened to be black, Oberlin SJW’s sounded the horn of Odin, alerting all other members of the army that a micro aggression had occurred. Unable to resist an opportunity to virtue signal, the students came out in blind support of an illogical cause that suited their narrative. The answer was obvious, Gibson’s Bakery was racist!
Instead of respecting the order of law, or acknowledging that a crime had taken place, they pulled out their overused victim cards and waved them all over campus. They protested, boycotted, and even passed out a flyer in front of the business.
Without a shred of proof that racism of any kind had taken place, they lashed out in seething anger for no reason at all. And their attempts were successful in large part, due to the fact that they were stationed at a major training facility for the social justice army. A liberal college campus.
Gibson’s Bakery was libeled, and their sales took a major dive as a result of the relentless lying that social justice warriors will go through in order to get their way. Think of their battle strategy as a weaponized temper tantrum. So the owners of Gibson’s Bakery fought back, and took the university to court. And they won. They won $44 million dollars.
This battle was a major loss for the SJW Army, and for Oberlin College itself. They both learned the harsh lesson that you don’t always get what you want, especially when the facts aren’t on your side. For SJWs, being in the wrong is not at all a deterrent. They gather up and throw temper tantrums until they win. But in this case, they learned that simply being willing to scream louder and for longer does not always equal victory. Oberlin College virtue signalling appears to have cost them 44 million dollars.
Time will tell who wins the war, but at least our justice system isn’t bending over and spreading their cheeks for SJWs like the tech companies. We’ll count that as a win for America.
