A Warning to All Oxy Republicans.
You have clearly not visited Oxy’s website. You would know better if you did. You would have already read this:
Occidental College-We respect and encourage one another’s ideas, interests, and creative impulses…unless you are a Republican.
Occidental College- We seize the opportunity to create and sustain conversations around the issues that matter most to us… until a Republican wants to speak.
Occidental College- The bedrock of our success depends on our capacity to reinterpret the great tradition of the liberal arts and sciences for a new generation of students… so long as our status quo of Democratic thought is never challenged.
Let’s be honest, Republican have never produced a single policy that was to the benefit of Americans. They represent greedy and racist white males who see themselves superior to all other humans. They want the rich to get richer and the poor to suffer. They hate minorities. They could care less about America as a whole. We even have Mitt Romney on tape to prove it!! So why would we be open to their ideas? None of them have ever worked! Why shouldn’t we raise our voice, condescend, and curse Oxy Republicans? They deserve it! They should be afraid to express their opinion. They should be hesitant to ask a question that challenges the way all of us think. Why should we have to respectfully disagree? No Republican ideas are valid. To gain our respect they would have to be educated (by that we mean a Democrat). Republicans, this is your warning. Your inferior ideologies are not welcome and will not be tolerated. You are inferior and will be treated as such. Do not challenge our flawless political ideologies or the consequences will be severe.
I wish to backtrack my assertions to the scare refuges I do have here at Occidental. The first refuge is Jack Kemp Stadium (Named after Oxy’s most notable Republican alumn :)) and the second is my Politics 101 class. I feel inclined to publicly express my appreciation for the respect and courtesy shown by the entire class, both students and professor. When I decided to enroll at Oxy, I anticipated and embraced the notion that my political ideologies would be challenged. However, I did not anticipate that I would be undeservedly cursed at and patronized for my partisan affiliation. I usually disregard the trivial rudeness I encounter on a regular basis, but after last night when a few Oxy students (whom I don’t even know) blatantly ostracized and cussed at me for no reason at all, I feel obligated to stand up to the lack of mutual respect. As I stated earlier, I truly appreciate the mutual respect in Politics 101. I also believe that most 101 students appreciate a challenging viewpoint as much as I do. For that reason, I encourage all 101 students to pass on the same notions of mutual respect and open-mindedness of challenging viewpoints. I thank you for your time and consideration.
