Another year of campus madness and mayhem is behind us.
2015 will be remembered as the year that crybullies and safe spaces gained ground while freedom of thought and expression lost it on college campuses.
It’s a year in which a journalism professor blocked a journalism student from covering a campus protest. A year in which students signed a petition to abolish the First Amendment. A year that saw Halloween costumes become symbols of racist oppression. A year that boasted an abundance of campus hate-crime hoaxes.
Meanwhile, dozens of young college men were railroaded by campus sexual assault claims as the tyranny of Title IX continues unabated. The term “mattress girl” is now, unfortunately, embedded in our lexicon.
It’s a year that saw campus leaders declare a movie about one of the greatest military snipers in U.S. history racist propaganda, decry the American flag as divisive and vote to remove it, and deem the term “America is the land of opportunity” an offensive microaggression.
Through it all, The College Fix was there, chronicling the good, the bad, the ugly – and the insane.
