More than 250 professors, faculty members, and staff at a purportedly Catholic university have signed onto a “Statement of Solidarity” against the upcoming December 1 remarks of Matt Walsh, according to a tip received through Young America’s Foundation’s Campus Bias Tipline.
Matt Walsh’s upcoming event at Saint Louis University has received the wrath of the woke mob. The event has been the subject of never-ending bureaucratic red tape under the guise of COVID-19 protection, and protests of Walsh are being organized. Now, hundreds of professors have signed what they’ve dubbed, a “Statement of Solidarity.”
“Matt Walsh plans to discuss the biological ability to carry a pregnancy, which the female sex possesses, to ostracize transgender women,” a draft of the statement obtained by YAF reads.
They add that bringing a speaker such as Walsh to campus is “insensitive” to the transgender demographic.
The professors go on to claim that “associating childbirth with womanhood is also dangerous…”
If that wasn’t bad enough, they then take the opportunity to say that they “affirm transgender and nonbinary students…”
“We acknowledge the harm this event will cause and has already caused.”
They conclude by saying they are working to pursue a policy that ensures “…this type of divisive speaker has no platform at Saint Louis University…”
More concerning than the statement itself is the number of professors and administrators endorsing it at this supposedly Catholic university.
More than 250 administrators, professors, and faculty alike signed the statement, which was published in The University News on November 30.
This is a damning indictment of our institutions of higher education. It’s clear that universities across the country—religious or not—are infected with wokeness. They claim it’s not about free speech, but instead about protecting vulnerable communities. This is in line with the idea that words are violence. What’s even worse is that these aren’t just words, they’re the truth. Hundreds of professors at one school have subscribed to the idea that the truth is violent, and it’s likely similar at institutions across the country. If this shows us anything, it’s that they need to hear the truth more than ever.
