This week, Education Secretary Betsy Devos absolutely owned the woke Left at Princeton University. If you go woke, you go broke, and Betsy Devos just made the Ivy league school go broke in a big way.
The Daily Wire reported, “On September 2, the president of Princeton University, Christopher Eisgruber, issued a mea culpa in a letter in which he argued that Princeton still evinced racism, writing, ‘Racism and the damage it does to people of color nevertheless persist at Princeton as in our society … racist assumptions from the past also remain embedded in structures of the University itself.’”
In a feat of epic trolling, the Education Department responded by sending a letter to Princeton informing them that the university is now under investigation for discriminatory practices.
“On Wednesday, the Department of Education fired off a letter to Princeton University declaring that the university would be investigated, stating it was ‘concerned Princeton’s nondiscrimination and equal opportunity assurances in its Program Participation Agreements from at least 2013 to the present may have been false.’
Epic burn! This action by Betsy Devos and her department is so satisfying. It is nauseating for the woke Left to apologize for their privilege and supposed unconscious racism and then expect everything to be fine. Well, if they are so inherently racist, then they should be condemned and face consequences for that racism, right? I am just using their logic.
Of course, Devos was criticized almost immediately, but that’s nothing new. Secretary Devos has been unfairly maligned by the Dems and their media allies. She has been a lifelong advocate of school choice, suspended student loans due to the pandemic, reinstituted due process into college sexual assault allegations, and helped President Trump craft an executive order protecting free speech on college campuses. She also helped to implement policies that make it so incoming students are better informed about what degrees will be most beneficial monetarily to them upon graduating.
President Trump signed into law an executive order to guarantee free speech on college campuses. The order was long overdue.
It is refreshing to finally have a president who is standing up for the free speech rights of students at our public institutions.
The American taxpayer has been forced to subsidize public universities that serve as public indoctrination camps for the radical regressive Left.
The executive order also made college financial data more transparent. Students will now get to see what the average salary is for jobs in different degree paths. The American taxpayer has been forced to foot the bill for students to rack up tens of thousands in student debt while at the same time earning degrees in subjects that offer limited employment and pay.
Now, students will be able to make a more informed selection of their major.
Secretary Devos proposed regulation that would require colleges to allow students accused of sexual assault to cross-examine their accuser at a live hearing. DeVos said, “We can, and must, condemn sexual violence and punish those who perpetrate it, while ensuring a fair process.”
But of all the great things she has done in her tenure at the Education Department, this investigation into Princeton’s wokeness might be my favorite thing she has done. There is nothing more fun than trolling the Left—especially when they bring it on themselves!
