Reading a Book = Harassment

Keith John Sampson, a communication-studies senior at Purdue who supplements his income by working there as a janitor, was reading a history book (which is also in the school’s library) during a break. “Notre Dame vs. the Klan” details the story of how Notre Dame students physically attacked the KKK and literally ran them out of town on a rainy night in 1927.

Two cowardly race-baters made an anonymous complaint about his despicable behavior of, um, reading a book and the $106,00 a year affirmative action officer declared him guilty of racial harassment and told him he should be fired.

For reading an anti-Klan book.

They eventually dropped that charge, and are now charging him with, well, something. No one will say what his offense is, as this reporter discovered.

He tells the story in his own words here.

But political corrections and rampant far-left stupidity doesn’t exist in higher education, we’re told. Uh uh. That’s a baseless complaint, and anyone who makes must watch Fox News and listen to Rush. Oh, and they’re racist, too. Definitely racist. That’s the ticket.

  1. Unbelievable! No! Wait! This happened in a country where four Supreme Court Justices cannot read, and by a miracle the 2nd amendment was preserved. Thanks for bringing this to light. I had not heard.

  2. Well, y’know Dave, just seeing the initials KKK could remind someone of past injustice, and make them flip out entirely against their will. I think we ought to ban Krispy Kreme dougnuts just in case.

  3. But only “Krunchy Krispy Kreeme” donuts.

    Maybe we should force them to sell “Natural All Almond Cashew Pastries” to make up for perceived past injustices.
