One of the hip sayings in the world of leftist politics is speaking “your truth.” But that is a false flag.
There is only factual truth. The rest is belief.
If “your truth” departs from verifiable truth, it is just bilge.
Enter The University of North Carolina, which is becoming a major bilge zone these days. UNC Professor Jennifer Ho has nominated Dr. Christine Ford for the Distinguished Alumna Award for speaking “truth to power” while accusing Brett Kavanaugh of sexual assault.
Apparently, Professor Ho has totally discounted the FBI’s investigation that found no corroboration of Dr. Ford’s accusations.
Apparently, Ms. Ho herself has corroboration because she is flat out stating what Dr. Ford put forth is true.
But wait. There’s a subtlety here.
Professor Ho writes: “this letter nominating Dr. Ford is not about partisan politics, it is about recognizing that the simple fact of speaking one’s truth, especially when that truth involves sexual assault, is an act of bravery.”
Memo to Professor Ho: “one’s truth” is not THE truth, madame, unless it is verified and buttressed with proven facts.
But surely that opinion is not the prevailing wisdom at UNC.
So, if we are granting awards to brave people who speak their “truth to power” perhaps Brett Kavanaugh will be considered for one.
I mean, the Justice emphatically denied under pain of felony any misconduct involving Dr. Ford. He spoke “his truth” to the powerful Senate Judiciary Committee. He forcefully called for the basic right of due process, the presumption of innocence.
For his efforts he was castigated worldwide.
Did he not show bravery? He could have walked away.
Of course the poobahs at the University of North Carolina will never honor Brett Kavanaugh. Any professor even advocating that would be shunned and perhaps fired if he or she lacked tenure. The entire university system in this country is biased left and the fix is in. Speaking “truth to power” is a one-way street where you make a sharp left to enter.
I say enough. UNC and most other colleges have no credibility with honest people. Many of their administrators and teachers are fanatical zealots who are running wild spreading their “truth.”
But it isn’t the truth, it’s ideological propaganda designed to attack and marginalize those with whom they disagree. Freedom of expression on college campuses is largely a myth in this country.
That is speaking the truth. And the one-sided award nomination at UNC backs it up.
