“I’m George Bridges, I use he/him pronouns.”
That was how the president of Evergreen State College, a man with a PhD in Sociology, an MA in Criminology and the backbone of an incontinent weasel began his apology to the radical leftists who had terrorized his school, shouted racial slurs at a professor and other students, and driven an entire class off campus. Then he paid respect to the “elders past and present of the Squaxin Island Tribe.”
The university was once a place of reason and learning. It is now a sick, sad totalitarian joke.
From now on all official Evergreen State events must begin by stating that it is built on stolen Indian land. The president’s pronoun was an admission of his cisgender privilege. It was the first of a series of ritual humiliations that he would undergo. And no one deserved them more than George Bridges.
Bridges had been the author of an op-ed titled, “Why students need trigger warnings and safe places”. Now he had to stand there while the leftist crybullies he had been sheltering shouted, “F__ you George; we don’t wanna listen to a goddamn thing you have to say! No, you shut the f___ up.”
