Compare and contrast the sniveling, crying, kowtowing leadership of Yale, Mizzou, VCU, and the like with this classy statement of values from Purdue University! I’m adding it in whole here, because it’s important.

To the Purdue community,
Events this week at the University of Missouri and Yale University should remind us all of the importance of absolute fidelity to our shared values. First, that we strive constantly to be, without exception, a welcoming, inclusive and discrimination-free community, where each person is respected and treated with dignity. Second, to be steadfast in preserving academic freedom and individual liberty.
Two years ago, a student-led initiative created the “We Are Purdue Statement of Values”, which was subsequently endorsed by the University Senate. Last year, both our undergraduate and graduate student governments led an effort that produced a strengthened statement of policies protecting free speech. What a proud contrast to the environments that appear to prevail at places like Missouri and Yale. Today and every day, we should remember the tenets of those statements and do our best to live up to them fully.
President Mitch Daniels
Stand up for free thought and free speech. Stand up for respect for all people, all races, all genders… everyone!
Stand up for what is right. Stop bowing to unreasonable, infantile, entitled, spoiled racists. They’re loud and unreasonable, but you have truth and justice on your side.
