Re: “Unfree speech

"Cal Poly claims the protesters violated the university's Student Code of Conduct for an unpermitted sign." With that vague of a definition in the Student Code of Conduct, every T-shirt, hat, hoodie, and tattoo on campus that bears a logo and/or words is an unpermitted sign, too. As a recent Poly grad, I say please, let's have more of this arbitrary and ambiguous bullshit by Armstrong's Kyriarchal A-Team -- it helps entrench me in camp with the "Poly Peaceniks"!

Re: “Cal Poly reportedly investigating students for career fair protest

Hey, Matt Lazier: Isn't "protest" by definition a form of disruption? So proud of SLO Peace Coalition for standing up to the war machine and fascism in general. Stay strong!

Re: “Cal Poly suspends all Greek life amid blackface photo fallout

Sadly, the Greek system at Cal Poly, as a microcosm of American culture, includes many immature, non-self-reflective individuals who will simply gather in secret to fly their flags of hatred under the radar . . . until they get outed again. Can these folks evolve? I sincerely wonder.

Re: “All lying liars must resign!

This angers me hugely. I am so sick of the hegemonic forces, mostly white males (I know, not all of them), literally getting away with murder, and having the unmitigated gall to laugh about it. Our society is diseased with the lethal combination of authoritarian, narcissistic, white supremacist patriarchy + misogyny + toxic masculinity. These guys gotta go, now, along with the women who blindly follow them, and make way for the future of humanistic, compassionate social constructs.

Re: “Right-wing hypocrisy on steroids

Thanks, Jim Griffin. I love your writing style, and your arguments against Faux News indoctrination. "Divide and conquer" is the strategy at play in our nation, and it's working (so far) because so many people cannot override their emotion-based "logic" (as if) and use logic.

Re: “Is this a great country ... or what?

Thank you for this article, Jim. I wholeheartedly agree with your sentiment, "or what." We are losing the war on social justice -- on human equity, no less -- so that the forces of hegemony maintain and amass even more power and money. A lot of people need to stop entertaining themselves to death and wake up to the reality behind their tv curtains, or the casualties will begin to multiply exponentially.

Re: “A systemic problem

Yes, Barbie! We're talking about a social construct that has taken about 10,000 years to finally begin to shatter. There will be plenty of backlash from privileged white males who refuse to think deep and critically about the system of oppression they continue to hold up. And yeah, a lot of their wives and daughters will cheer them on. But I'm ready to keep up the pressure!
