Political correctness run amok

Liberty [sic] University [sic] revokes the charter of their chapter of the College Democrats:

Maria Childress, the staff adviser to the club, told the paper the school — which opposes abortion rights and gay marriage — had issues with the Democratic Party platform.

Childress says she was told by Mark Hine, the vice president of student affairs, that "'You can't be a Democrat and be a Christian and be a university representative.'"

Never mind that admitting to being a Democrat at LU is like being a black Mormon or a gay Republican, this is the most intrusive kind of political correctness. It will be fun to hear all the usual decriers of PC condemn LU for this. As if.

The silence I expect from, say, David Horowitz, would prove once and for all that the problem the right has with political correctness is not the concept but whose political correctness gets enforced. If the academy would only enforce their political correctness, they'd be thrilled.

But back to LU: Democrats everywhere should take this charter revocation as a point of pride.

I had hoped you would highlight this in your blog, LL.

It is like the fringe conservatives are attempting to more quickly alienate the rest of society, than is already occurring.
