    You may remember Hampshire College for its flag-related controversies around the 2016 election.

    It flew the American flag at half-staff after Donald Trump’s surprise victory, which wasn’t enough for an arsonist who then set it on fire. At that point the private college removed all flags, so it could “instead focus our efforts on addressing racist, misogynistic, Islamophobic, anti-immigrant, anti-Semitic, and anti-LGBTQ rhetoric and behaviors.”

    Even when it flew the American flag again two weeks later, then-President Jonathan Lash defended its removal by calling the flag an impediment to “uninhibited expression of deeply held viewpoints.”

    Those deeply held viewpoints don’t include support for gun rights, as 2nd Amendment activist Antonia Okafor learned when the college suddenly canceled her speech, citing the sponsor’s failure to disclose she might provoke “intense debate.”

    An official told the sponsor “we deem it too controversial and we are receiving calls from students and staff and professors and they are upset about it.”

    PC has its limits or perhaps they missed that point.

    Eventually, absurdity and these silly PC titles strung together wear-out there welcome.

    Given the cost of higher education and the debt students acquire, parents and students realize "investing in social justices" does not get you too far in life or pay the bills.

    UMissouri pandered to the BLM thugs and enrollment collapsed.

    Evergreen College pandered to students hounding Prof Weinstein and enrollment collapsed.

    "Get woke, go broke" is an oversimplification, obviously, but there is significant underlying truth to it. I wonder how well that restaurant in VA (rust-colored female chicken; I won't increase their visibility to Google by giving the name) that refused service to Sarah Sanders and family is doing.

    I'm waiting for the first " woke " colleges to go under and the jerkazoids who run these brain laundries to finally get the hint.
