If you aren’t familiar with the ongoing crisis at The Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington, get caught up by reading “School Protestors Enraged Because White People Won’t Voluntarily Leave Campus” and then “UPDATE: Evergreen State College Protesters Are Now Exempt From Doing Homework.”
Those two articles paint a picture of a school in the midst of a misguided student-led protest with 100% emotional and 0% intellectual backing… which is nothing out of the ordinary these days. It’s the new norm, like all network sitcoms being absolute trash and every trey Kevin Love jacks up being a large enough brick to where entire cities could be built if just one of said bricks were to be broken down into smaller bricks and used to erect edifices.
But as Bret Weinstein, the long-time Evergreen State professor at the center of the controversy, points out, this situation is far from normal. It’s a terrifying case study on what happens when a public entity succumbs to a semi-militant protest group.
Yes, the interview — like all episodes of the Joe Rogan Experience — is long as shit. But it’s completely worth it. Binge it, listen to it in a bunch of 15-minute chunks until you finish it, whatever. Just make sure to listen to the whole thing so you can understand the negative effects of letting radical PC culture run rampant..
