Canadian Flakiness

I've always said that when it comes to political correctness, our frozen friends up in America's mullet, Canada, seem to be five or ten years ahead of us in pure damn silliness. And this story from the Daily Caller supports my view. 

Student forced to apologize for emailing pic of Obama kicking a door, because RACISM

Robby Soave Reporter

A student at McGill University in Montreal, Canada was forced to issue a formal apology for emailing a picture of President Obama kicking open a door–all because some students thought the image was somehow racist.

The image was actually an edited .gif, and was shown by Jay Leno on “The Tonight Show” last fall. It humorously suggests that the president may be fed up with press conferences. McGill student Brian Farnan, vice president of the university’s student government, sent out an email with the .gif and the harmless caption, “Honestly midterms get out of here,” according to Legal Insurrection.

What happened next is almost unbelievable: Another student issued a formal complaint against Farnan for committing a “micro-aggression.”For those not up-to-date on the PC lexicon, “micro-aggression” is the latest phrase of choice for leftist radicals seeking to blame racism for common annoyances suffered by people of all races. Minority activists at the University of Michigan, for example, have insisted that trivial slights, such as “Having your opinion second-guessed in a group assignment,” are micro-aggressions that betray the campus as a hostile place for students of color.

  1. Insanity rules the day again. Is McGill University in Montreal going to demand that Jay Leno apologize for originally airing this spoof of President Obama kicking a door? Of course not ... because, it's easier to pick on a student that is young and vulnerable.
    With all these liberal campuses it is far easier to go along with the asinine request of an anal student complainer who totally lacks any sense of humor..

  2. If I was a student there, I might submit micro-aggression complaints over anything and everything related to race all the time. This would hose up their politically correct system and the pain and drama of the university keystone cops running after people will make everyone really hate the system. Use their own systems against them to help undermine their anti-white system. They are at the stage where their nonsense it going to make the students rebel against the thought tyranny.
