There is disloyalty in the university when it comes to DEI, EDI, or DIE and we must put a stop to it. There are Trojan Horses in the university who are describing it as (believe it or not) Division, Entitlement and Intimidation. The solution to our problem comes from Texas Democratic Congressional Representative Martin Dies, who I think of as Martin DIEs.
Martin Dies was the congressman who started the House Committee Investigating Un-American Activities in 1937 to investigate alleged disloyalties, and the committee was informally known as the Dies Committee. In 1946, the Dies Committee became known as the House Un-American Activities Committee or HUAC.
As an aside, in 1975, the HUAC was dissolved and its functions were taken over by the House Judiciary Committee. Currently, the white supremacist Jim Jordan chairs the committee. We can see by the way that Jim Jordan is going after Saint Alvin Bragg that the Judiciary Committee is no longer the reasonable committee chaired by Jerry Nadler–but a loathsome racist, fat-shaming, white supremacist clown show.
We must do all we can to weed out racist white supremacists from Academia, before these Trojan Horses become congresspeople, senators, or even president (it has happened). I suggest that we start the Cornell Unwoke Activities Committee (UWAC), and do some real Big Red Baiting, by accusing every old white man of being unwoke, and then asking this simple question:
Do you now or have you ever believed in merit?
If they answer yes, we call them out then and there and ask them to give names of others who believe or believed in merit. If they answer no, we know they are liars and cowards and we don’t have to worry about getting any pushback from them. Either way, no one will be as tough to question today as Peter Seeger was when he was in front of the HUAC–after all, they don’t make them like they used to.
I suggest that we publish the names of the accused and their answers in a paper, which I suggest we start and call the Daily Woker.
Lastly, it would not be inaccurate to use the DIEs Committee as a nickname for the Cornell Unwoke Activities Committee.
