University Of Houston Student Roundly Punished For Saying "All Lives Matter"

                 Rohini Sethi, vice-president of the University of Houston’s Student Government Association, was suspended for 50 days and ordered to attend a diversity seminar after she had the temerity to publish a Facebook post stating, “Forget #BlackLivesMatter; more like AllLivesMatter.” Sethi published the post shortly after five Dallas police officers were killed on July 7th. It was deleted after numerous students denounced the post, using terms such as “incredibly offensive” or even “hateful”.
                In order to permanently ban Sethi, monster that she is, the student government’s constitution requires the student body president, president of the student senate and three-fourths of present student senators to approve “impeachment” proceedings. If these all took place, Sethi would then be tried by the student supreme court, which in turn would choose between permanent expulsion, spaying and neutering, or the death penalty. (I may have added the last two for dramatic effect, but don’t count on it). In lieu of that arduous process, the student senate approved a measure giving SGA president Shane Smith “exceptional” one-time powers to punish Sethi as he saw fit. (This has the makings of a best-selling women’s erotica trilogy!). Smith took to the task like Michael Moore to a peanut buster parfait, and released a letter Friday outlining a set of five punishments for Sethi.
                The comeuppances include, first, a 50-day suspension from the Student Government Association (SGA) starting August 1. This suspension will be unpaid (she currently receives a stipend of about $700 a month). Second, she will be required to attend a three-day “diversity workshop” in mid August. Third, she must attend three “University of Houston cultural events” each month from September through March, excluding December. Fourth, she has been ordered to write a “letter of reflection” about how her “harmful actions” have impacted SGA and the university’s student body. Finally, she has been commanded to put on a public presentation Sept. 28 detailing “the knowledge she has gained about cultural issues facing our society.”
                 If Sethi refuses- or fails -any of these baculine disciplinary requirements, she will be kicked out of SGA entirely. Smith noted in his letter that Sethi’s punishment was particularly harsh because, in his view, she hadn’t recognized the severity of her offense in declaring that all people’s lives matter. “Since her original post, I have not felt that she has understood or respected how her actions have affected the people around her, as well as the reputation of SGA and the university,” Smith said.
                So affirming the obvious, by stating that all lives matter, is now considered racist, and a “severe offense,” meriting the stiffest of penalties and sanctions? (But chanting “pigs in a blanket, fry ‘em like bacon!” is okay?).
                Democrats can freely promulgate the vilest absurdities such as: “Republicans don’t like women or the environment, they want to throw your grandmother off a cliff, they are racist, homophobic, inbred hate-mongers from bum-bleep, Montana, that cling to their guns and God, who happen to also love rich Wall Street types” without any serious challenge from the media and academia, and this isn’t hate speech; is not, in fact, even politically incorrect? But anyone stating that all lives are precious and have worth is some kind of dangerous, raving, lunatic in need of a lengthy stay at a Soviet-style re-education camp?
                 When Natural Law is ignored or refuted, the basis for all just and equitable human law is removed. When laws are enforced differently for some people than they are for others, when some are above the law (“Herself,” for example) and others are not, and when speech is no longer protected but feelings are, society must quickly begin to unravel. And when entitlement and grievance run roughshod over truth, the day of reckoning draws nigh. When avowing- in the manner of Christ- that all lives matter… is deemed a hate crime, it has become a sad and bizarro world indeed.
                One that simply cannot long continue on its present path.
                (Ironically, Martin Luther King would have loved the “All Lives Matter” mantra- it is what he was preaching all along. So how did we get here? Because “tolerance,” “inclusion,” “diversity,” and “entitlement” have been ensconced as the highest values, replacing honesty, integrity, merit and freedom).
