Accidental Thought Crime: Mexican Food Served During Intergalactic Night

In a totalitarian society, even those uninclined to commit thought crimes never know when the hammer is going to come down on them. The Gulag Archipelago tells of a Russian tailor who stuck a needle into a newspaper while he was working. As fate would have it, the needle went into a picture of Joseph Stalin. A customer reported the tailor to authorities; he was dragged off to the gulags.

Stalin is gone now, but hysterically repressive totalitarianism remains. For example:

Stevenson College is apologizing to its students for serving Mexican food during “Intergalactic” night.

Stevenson College is part of the University of California, Santa Cruz.

In a letter sent out to students, the college apologized for having “a Mexican food buffet,” while also featuring spaceships and aliens. The college received complaints saying the combination was racist because of the association between Mexicans and illegal immigrants.

Because this is still a soft tyranny, those responsible will not be sent to starve in the snow at a gulag. But humiliating punishment will be inflicted on “Programs staff”:

After receiving complaints, Dr. Golz said that the event “demonstrated a cultural insensitivity on the part of the program planners and, though it was an unintentional mistake, I recognize that this incident caused harm within our community and negatively impacted students.”

As a result, Dr. Golz “will require cultural competence training for Programs staff, in addition to implementing mechanisms for future program planning that will ensure college programs are culturally sensitive and inclusive.”

Unless human nature deserves less respect than I give it, attempts at “cultural competence” brainwashing are going to create more than a few committed countermoonbats.

At least we all know that Golz is no thought criminal:

In the letter, Dr. Golz then assures students that she is “an ally for students of color and, in particular, undocumented students.”

That is, students who are in the country illegally and enjoy lavish benefits including subsidized in-state tuition at the expense of lawful American citizens.

Dr. Golz then encourages students to report “hate” to to cut down on insensitive events like Intergalactic night.

If Golz were a Russian in the 1930s, a portrait of Stalin would hang above her bed. Every night before turning in she would give it a kiss. You never know when someone might be watching through the window.
