The politically correct police are at it again, and just as expected the ridiculousness of the rage is enough to make your head spin. This time the scene of the stupidity is at Dartmouth College, where one student managed to upend a planned celebration.
Members of the Phi Delta Alpha fraternity and the Alpha Phi sorority had planned to sponsor a fundraiser for cardiac care, according to Campus Reform. However one student, named Daniela Hernandez, was apparently offended by the party having a “Phiesta” theme to it and decided that it was her civic duty to ensure it was canceled.
So acting in a politically correct manner the party’s organizers canceled the event that was planned for Saturday.
According to reports the party was set to have live bands, virgin piña coladas and strawberry daiquiris, burritos, chips and salsa, and guacamole and any money raised would have gone to help fund cardiac treatments.
Unfortunately Hernandez was so deeply offended by the racial insensitivity that it was enough for the planners to cancel it.
According to Campus Reform, the “Mexican-born, United-States-raised, first-generation woman of color” sent a scathing email stating that “there are various problematic structures and ideologies regarding a Cinco de Mayo-inspired event.”
She doesn’t like the “Americanization of Cinco de Mayo and its construction as a drinking holiday in the United States, cultural appropriation and the inappropriate usage of cultural clothing, and the exploitation of groups of people and cultures for the sake of business opportunities.”
According to her “It was sadly unsurprising that a culturally-themed party was seen as a casual venture for such a privileged institution such as Dartmouth.”
The President of Phi Delta, Taylor Catchcart, said that they canceled the event because “the possibility of offending even one member of the Dartmouth community was not worth the potential benefits of having the fundraiser.”
It’s sad that this is the world we live in, where just one person being offended over something so trivial can cancel charitable fundraisers. However being at Dartmouth nobody should really be surprised as the university has a history of insane politically correct actions.
One such action being canceling classes for an entire day to hold a public forum on addressing a few student’s concerns that the school supports racism, sexism, and heaven-forbid capitalism.
The just in February a group of militant students threatened administrators with “physical action” if they didn’t meet a list of demands, which they later did.
