University of Missouri Tells Students to Report ‘Hurtful Speech’

George Orwell’s dystopian classic 1984 is becoming more and more of a reality and Orwell is becoming a literal prophet in Obama’s America as terms like “thought police” and “thought crimes” are no longer something to be imagined — they have infiltrated our nation’s universities as a major anti-free speech tenant of poisonous cultural Marxism.

At the University of Missouri, or “Mizzou,” they have a modern day “thought police,” as the University of Missouri Police Department sent an email to students on Tuesday, asking them to report the Orwellian thought crime of “hateful and/or hurtful speech.”

Whatever happened to the long-held, time-tested parential axiom, “Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me?” The anti-free speech progressive left has turned it completely upside down, leading to a culture of wimpy, overly sensitive little children who are afraid of their own shadows.

Campus Reform reported the email, provided to them by a student who wishes to remain anonymous (probably so they don’t get charged with some sort of “crime”):

Campus Reform Reports:

The University of Missouri Police Department sent an email to students Tuesday morning asking them to report “hateful and/or hurtful speech” so that they may pursue disciplinary action.

The email, which was provided to Campus Reform by a student who wishes to remain anonymous, instructs recipients to “call the police immediately” (emphasis in original) if they witness such incidents, and to collect as much information as possible in order to help police identify the perpetrator(s).

Former Congressman Joe Walsh, now a radio talk show host, pulled no punches on Tuesday, tweeting about the Mizzou matter and providing some brutal perspective, while hitting progressive political correctness right between the eyes:

Next thing you know, the left will be pushing for a constitutional right to not be offended.
