One of these days, I’m going to take some whiteout and remove the word “offended” from the English language once and for all. In the meantime, the P.C. Police is out of control yet again, and this time, Dartmouth College is the school bowing down to its demands.
A “Phiesta”-themed fundraiser, set to benefit cardiac care patients, was cancelled last week after one Dartmouth student decided she was “offended” by the theme. Phi Delta Alpha fraternity and Alpha Phi sorority planned to host the sober event, where they were going to serve Mexican food and drinks. Unfortunately, some poor joker who is suffering from cardiac issues is going to suffer a little bit longer, thanks to Dartmouth student Daniela Hernandez. She seems to have quite a large piece of timber lodged up her ass.
Hernandez, a Mexican-born U.S. citizen, felt the theme “mocked and marginalized” her culture, and she emailed nearly everyone with power at the college demanding the event be cancelled. Sure enough, the limp dicks in power obeyed her demands.
The Phi Delta Alpha fraternity president issued a statement regarding the cancellation, basically stating that university is more worried about being ridiculously politically correct rather than actually contributing to a larger cause and ignoring asinine and incredibly selfish complaints from miserable students.
From The Examiner:
“We felt that the possibility of offending even one member of the Dartmouth community was not worth the potential benefits of having the fundraiser.”
I hope you’re proud of yourself, Daniela. Shame on you, Dartmouth.
