Ohh, a Social Justice Placemat, with Liberal talking points, to win any argument with their Wascally Wepublican relatives!

The total cost, per year, for tuition, room and board at Harvard: $60,659

Really, the placemats should have also included this statement:

I spent a fortune at Harvard and all I got was this lousy placemat.

Via Breitbart:

Harvard’s Office for Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion has abandoned any pretence of political impartiality, and is using its resources to push far-Left progressive talking points onto its students, according to one student who sent us this remarkable “Christmas placemat.”

….The placemats cover four political issues from a highly biased perspective. They instruct students to challenge criticism of the anti-free expression mobs at Yale, of immigration from Syria, of Black Lives Matter arguments about police brutality, and the recent removal, at the behest of campus crazies, of the “Harvard House Master” title on the grounds that “master” is offensive to black students.

The placemats do not encourage students to ask questions, but to repeat talking points. In other words, they are telling students what to think, not how to think. They also advise students on how to talk to families, instructing them to “listen mindfully,” “breathe” [sic] and “speak from a place of mutual interest.”….

    One thing left out on the placemat, “How not to let your head explode when confronted by the conservative point of view that you cannot dispute.”

    Once you establish that there is no freedom of speech on campus, next step is to export no free speech, starting with these are the approved messages that can be spoken. My retort; Oh honey, and you were able to say that without a teleprompter. I’m so proud of you.

    (Years ago, I had a coworker (good guy) who was born on Cape Cod following his parents moving there. So he often said that he was a true Cape Codder and his parents weren’t. This seems similar; Mom, Dad, I went to Harvard so I know the correct policies, and you don’t.)

      Your coworkers response is similar to many seacoast New Englanders, and not that atypical of many places I’ve lived. On the other hand, it’s telling that the Harvard administration feels that their budding intellectual Übermensches might need help dealing with the students inferiors back home (aka their family). This placemat is just a reminder of what the Harvard administration, faculty, and students really think of the rest of the country.

        One thing is true about the Southeast. As a Californian who was transplanted to the South in 1988, I’ve been accepted as a true Southerner from day 1. The only condition? Must use “y’all” in every 3rd sentence.

    In other ‘social justice’ news, Adam Baldwin had his Twitter account locked (now restored) because he tweeted that GamerGate supporters are more attractive than anti-GamerGaters. Adam is disliked in the gamer social justice world because he coined the hashtag #gamergate. Good brief article with background by Breitbart.
