UVSC SUBMITS LIKE A SLAVE
Last year, plans to build a $30 million digital learning at Utah Valley State College was suddenly cancelled by the Republican Utah Legislature because of the college's decision to invite liberal filmmaker Michael Moore and, later, its production of "The Vagina Monologues". The learning center was, obviously, meant to help students learn. But, the legislature decided that UVSC was becoming "too liberal" and so they punished the students by taking away something that would help and strengthen them. SEE: THIS DIVIDED STATE OFFICIAL SITE
So, this year, UVSC has behaved like a good little boy and it seems like they'll be rewarded, finally, with the digital learning center. True, "The Vagina Monologues" were still performed, but it had to be censored. UVSC did not allow the use of the word "vagina". The event is now referred to as "The Monologues" or "The V-Day Monologues".
So, the message is this: If you want something in life, sell out to whomever has money and power. Even if that means sacrificing free speech and academic freedom. Keep it up, UVSC! You are owned!
