Here’s a glimmer of hope that there’s some sanity left in academia.
You might have worked yourself up into a fit of righteous indignation recently when your read the reports that Gen. William Boykin was fired from his job for telling a funny at the expense of trannies.
Apparently, all that outrage paid off. The college that fired him has reversed course and rehired him.
Who says bloggers don’t accomplish nothin’?
Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia initially terminated Boykin for saying that “the first man who goes in the restroom with my daughter will not have to worry about surgery.”
You see what he did there? He joked about cutting off the guy’s pee-pee.
After news of Boykin’s termination, the social justice mobsters danced a jig when they thought they claimed another right-wing scalp.
That dancing has ended, though.
Boykin has been unfired.
“I am pleased to announce that I have been rehired as the Wheat Professor at Hampden-Sydney College,” he said in a Facebook post. “I look forward to returning to Hampden-Sydney in the fall to continue my work equipping the next generation of young men to lead this nation. Hampden-Sydney College is a fine school with a proud history of young men who have led our country, and I am honored to be a part of shaping the next generation of leaders.”
And sometimes the good guys win.
