Universities should facilitate the free exchange of ideas between all kinds of people. But often I find that the liberal bias on Cornell’s campus represses my ability to openly discuss my conservative viewpoints or the finer details of the dozens of volumes of Star Wars erotic fan fictions I’ve penned.
Last week, as I tried to explain the benefits of traditional marriage, I was drowned out by triggered, politically-correct liberals who labeled me a hypocrite, just because I’ve written extensively on the steamy romance between Obi-Wan Kenobi and Jar Jar Binks on the hot sands of Tatooine after the events of Star Wars Episode III. It is disrespectful for left-wing Cornellians to not have an open, honest conversation on each subject individually.
So-called “progressives” at Cornell are destroying the First Amendment. When I talk about race with liberals, they label my honest opinions as “hate speech” and tell me to stop being “politically incorrect.” The same goes for discussions on my recent piece Star Wars 69: The D Strikes Back. Cornell liberals say it is “grossly offensive and inaccurate” to depict Queen Amidala, with four extra breasts, giving ghost Yoda fellatio on the command bridge of the Second Death Star while Chewbacca jerks off an Ewok in the background. What ever happened to freedom of the press and freedom of speech?
Cornellians across party lines will never agree on every issue, but that’s what democracy is all about. I’ll never convince Democrats to sign on to trickle-down economics. And both Democrats and Republicans will never support my artistic choice to portray Han Solo from Episode VII penetrating Jabba The Hutt penetrating Han Solo from Episode IV. But if our students cannot have an open and respectful conversation about these important topics, the significance of that democracy is lost.
