Brainwashed with cultural Marxism, progressive college snowflakes in California are arguing that objective truth is a myth invented by white supremacists — or something:
A group of California college students belonging to the five-school Claremont Consortium says objective truth is a “myth” espoused by white supremacists.
Pomona College President David Oxtoby recently released a statement in defense of free speech after conservative Heather Mac Donald of Manhattan Institute had an event derailed at nearby Claremont McKenna College. His missive was met with a list of demands by minority students who called Ms. Mac Donald “a white supremacist fascist supporter of the police state,” and objective truths — as found in the Declaration of Independence — “a means of silencing oppressed peoples.”
“The idea that there is a single truth — ‘the Truth’ — is a construct of the Euro-West that is deeply rooted in the Enlightenment, which was a movement that also described Black and Brown people as both subhuman and impervious to pain,” the students wrote, The Claremont Independent reported Monday. “This construction is a myth and white supremacy, imperialism, colonization, capitalism, and the United States of America are all of its progeny. The idea that the truth is an entity for which we must search, in matters that endanger our abilities to exist in open spaces, is an attempt to silence oppressed peoples.”
You might think this is just another ridiculous thought that will go nowhere but this type of thinking arises out of the “situational ethics” teaching that entered public schools in the 1970’s. More than that, it’s an attack on the Judeo-Christian ethic and American culture which is built on objective truth — that there is such a thing as the truth and right and wrong.
As Jesus said in John 8:32, “You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
