Gordon Gee’s thought crimes
Gordon Gee is the President of Ohio State University. Gordon Gee wears a bow tie. Never trust a man who wears a bow tie (tuxedos excluded): it’s very much a cry for help.
And Gordon Gee has committed a thought crime, or perhaps better, a thought joke. (They say, after all, that all humor is sourced in hostility.)
The president of Ohio State University said Notre Dame was never invited to join the Big Ten conference because the university’s priests are not good partners, joking that “those damn Catholics” can’t be trusted, according to a recording of a meeting he attended late last year.
It’s Gee’s prerogative to make such a joke, strange as it is, but imagine if the circumstances were different. Yes, instead of Notre Dame, imagine a wholly Muslim university, with Gee asserting the school’s imams are not good partners and the punch line as “those wacky Muslims can’t be trusted.” (In reality, Gee would never goof on any of the politically favored/protected groups—homosexuals, illegals, etc.—nor would he ever consider goofing on the Muslims.)
He who lives by political correctness must die by political correctness; Gee who lives by political correctness must die by political correctness.
