The iconic comedian recently admitted to ESPN radio host Colin Cowherd that he no longer bothers to do concerts at colleges, because young people have turned into a bunch of politically correct douchebags: “I don’t play colleges but I hear a lot ...

Attacking Diversity of Thought

Cancel the philosophy courses, people. Oh, and we’re going to be shuttering the political science, religion, and pre-law departments too. We’ll keep some of the English and history folks on for a while longer, but they should probably keep their résumés handy.
