The Simpsons Mocks PC-Obsessed Yale Students

, , ,

Newsbusters:

Sunday night’s episode of The Simpsons, “Caper Chase,” ridiculed the “highly-entitled wusses” that attend America’s universities.

When Mr. Burns tries to endow a Department of Nuclear Plant Management at his alma mater, Yale University, he comes face to face with the horror that is today’s college campus: easily offended, politically correct students overdosed with a hatred for micro-aggressions and cultural appropriation with a need for safe spaces.

    Mr. Burns- I’d like to endow a Department of Nuclear Plant Management.

    Male Yale Representative- Wonderful. Of course we can’t do nuclear.

    Female Yale Representative – Our students are highly-entitled wusses.

    Male Yale Representative – You’d be creating a space for violence to happen. How about funding a chair in the non-narrative cinema of self-identified pan-sexuals?

    Mr. Burns- What? What? What? What? What?!

    Female Yale Representative – We also need to hire more deans to decide which Halloween costumes are appropriate.

    Male Yale Representative – Eight deans should do it.

    Mr. Burns- (Sputters) Is this still a coven of capitalism where evil money can acquire a patina of virtue?

    Male Yale Representative – Yes, that’s in our charter.

    Female Yale Representative – But with an issue as hetero-patriarchal as nuclear power, we’ll have to hire multicultural empathizers, build a new safe space.

    College Student- Not so fast. We insist on a chair of anti-nuclear studies and a nuclear-neutral curriculum pathway.

    Male Yale Representative – Absolutely, Teddy. We run all decisions past the squash team.

    College Student- Also the fencing team, water polo and Handsome Dan the mascot.

    Mascot- (Goofy laughter)

    Mr. Burns- Release me, you hound.

    Mascot- (Goofy laughter) Oh, yeah.

    Mr. Burns- What’s happened to this place? (Gasps) (Gasps) This was the home of ruthless media disruptor Samuel F.B. Morse. Who’s his successor? That fellow?

    College Student- “Fellow”? That word is cis-gender-normative, okay? You’re worse than Hitler!

    Mr. Burns- Too late for flattery. I’m not giving this school a dime.

The Simpsons was explicit in its parody of Yale students, even using an exact quote from a student.

Mr. Burns learns that the PC-obsession has reached all corners of the university as he meets a few recently fired professors, including one professor who was fired for celebrating Columbus Day and another who referred to God as “He.”

Later in the episode, Homer must disrupt a man’s scheme to place robot-students in colleges in order to receive tax-payer funded student loans. Upon leaving a gender-neutral bathroom, Homer comes up with a plan to sabotage the robots by offending them.

Seattle Sam

Yale is now officially laughingstock. But trying to kill the Whiffs is going too far.

Glenn Reynolds on U Missouri decline, “Wreck your university to please a few dozen angry students and faculty who will never actually be happy? Smart move.”
