What in the world has gone wrong with America’s college education system?

While we knew that liberal college students were losing their minds, I don’t think anyone could have forseen just how crazy they’d become… but now we know.

The University of California San Diego scheduled the Dalai Lama to deliver the commencement address for the graduating class of 2017. Most people would consider the Dalai Lama to be a “safe” and “non-controversial” choice. I mean, the man has travelled the world preaching love and tolerance for over 50 years, much like a modern day Gandhi. You’d think liberal students would love him.

Apparently not…

The Chinese student association is protesting the school’s invitation to the Dalai Lama and claiming that he is “oppressive” and “offensive.” Why is he oppressive? Because the Dalai Lama argues that the Chinese rule of Tibet is unlawful and that the people of Tibet deserve to live as a free people.

Here’s more from Heat Street:

Students at the University of California, San Diego are protesting an upcoming visit by the Dalai Lama – claiming the Tibetan leader is “oppressive”.

Chinese students are leading objections to the event, which will see the Dalai Lama give a commencement speech on graduation day.

They have claimed that his presence is offensive because of his campaign to make Tibet more independent – contrary to the Communist government’s position that Tibet is a region of China under their control.

Arguments over Tibetan independence have raged for decades – but this dispute is remarkable because activists are conducting it through the language of social justice.


A statement accused university leaders of having “contravened the spirit of respect, tolerance, equality, and earnestness—the ethos upon which the university is built.”

One student posting on Facebook said: “So you guys protest against Trump because he disrespects Muslims, blacks, Hispanics, LGBT.., but invites this oppresser [sic] to make a public speech?? The hypocrisy is appalling!”

Likewise, an alumni group based in Shanghai said UCSD will be breaching its ethos of “diversity” and will leave them “extremely offended and disrespected” if the Dalai Lama’s speech dips into the political.

Chinese officials are known to be extraordinarily hostile to any groups who get close to the Dalai Lama, and do their best to punish governments who engage with the exiled Tibetan regime.

They consider the Dalai Lama a threat to stability in China, akin to a terrorist who wants to split the country.

This is what our liberal education system has wrought; even the Dalai Lama is now too offensive for our college students. We are in big trouble. 🇺🇸

I am the supreme law of the United States. Originally comprising seven articles, I delineate the national frame of government. My first three articles entrench the doctrine of the separation of powers, whereby the federal government is divided into three branches: the legislative, consisting of the bicameral Congress; the executive, consisting of the President; and the judicial, consisting of the Supreme Court and other federal courts. Articles Four, Five and Six entrench concepts of federalism, describing the rights and responsibilities of state governments and of the states in relationship to the federal government. Article Seven establishes the procedure subsequently used by the thirteen States to ratify it. I am regarded as the oldest written and codified constitution in force of the world.
