Liberal Student Demands at U of A

Another campus is under attack by liberal college students. A group calling themselves the Marginalized Students of the University of Arizona sent an open letter to the college. The letter was nothing more than a wish list of liberal reforms. Some of the demands called for things like free contraceptives, free computer access, free healthy food for poor people, and more free childcare. They also want to shut down any students and professors who might disagree with their agenda with harsh punishments for students and professors who say anything offensive. The letter also calls for professors to have alternative lesson plans for students who may find lessons to be too emotionally traumatizing. The authors of the letter threaten that students will “mobilize” if these demands are not met.

These demands should not be met by the administration of the University of Arizona. Students who want all of these items to be provided for “free” by the college do not have a basic understanding of economics. The cost of all the “free stuff” will eventually result in higher tuition rates for all students. That would only make it harder for new students to afford to go to the university.

The demands would also throw free speech out the window. Teachers should not have their classroom material censored to remove anything that a student might not agree with. Going to college should be about hearing different points of view. More and more colleges are being challenged by liberal students with outrageous demands. University administrations should stand up to these loud students and let them know that America is the land of opportunity, not entitlement.
