The tyranny of the dumb
It's not quite on the level of that black Washington, D.C., bureaucrat who raised hell when someone (correctly) used the word "niggardly" in a meeting, but Univ. of Arkansas law professor Richard Peltz was still slandered as racist for having used a piece from The Onion to make the point that America hasn't worked out all its racial problems yet. The Black Law Student Ass'n demanded Peltz's hide, apparently finding it too difficult to follow the "satire" thing (e.g., if it says X, it must mean X, or, wait, does it means the opposite of X, or, gee, how are we supposed to tell which one, and oh, goodness, this is all so confusing!). (Bonus: The BLSA guys also said The Onion was well-known for being politically "conservative.") Inside Education

The Onion is where I got all of my info on the candidates. What you mean it mocks everyone? 🐛

LMFAO @ Big Gary!

I thought The Onion was a valid news source for conservative news. Am I mistaken?

Don't you DARE tell me Stephen Colbert isn't really a conservative pundit. I'm not listening *plugs ears* :cheese:

For the record-
"niggardly- adj.
1 : grudgingly mean about spending or granting : begrudging
2 : provided in meanly limited supply
synonyms see stingy"


As Shakespeare had Puck say, "Lord, what fools these mortals be!"
