It’s Official: At Dartmouth, The Word ‘Fiesta’ Is Racist And White People Can’t Use It
Daily Caller ^ | 4-26-2014 | Eric Owens

Posted on 04/27/2014 6:16:39 AM PDT by equalator

Problems arose because a single student, junior Daniela Hernandez, was offended by the party’s theme of “Phiesta.”

As a result, the soiree, which was scheduled for Saturday, has been canceled by the presidents of the respective Greek organizations.

Phi Delt president Taylor Catchcart explained why the Greek organizations folded.

“We felt that the possibility of offending even one member of the Dartmouth community was not worth the potential benefits of having the fundraiser,” he said.

If we were being invaded by Mexicans who looked like this, I'd be a coyote and carry them across in sedan chairs.

I am happy for that policy. It just helps me to know they would NEVER allow anyone to offend a Christian.

Is it offensive to eat at a Fiesta Burrito (if yes, is take-out OK)?

I'm Scottish and I am not offended by Shamrock Shakes, in fact, quite the opposite. I'm mad they only make them one month out of the year.

Sounds like a great way to shut down discussion of any topic at Dartmouth.

Probably not an issue since they specified the “Dartmouth community”.

This is interesting. I read a little closer the statement made by Taylor Catchcart. “We felt that the possibility of offending even one member of the Dartmouth community was not worth the potential benefits of having the fundraiser.” Taylor Catchcart is also President of the Editorial Board at the Dartmouth Review, which is the “notorious” conservative newspaper at Dartmouth.

He employed the liberal orthodoxy of fear of offending anyone to cancel the event. But its a setup. He’s going out of his way to prove how absurd that particular part of the liberal mindset is.

Very nicely played. This should be fun to watch.

So it's good to know that leftists now admit that the US is not longer a melting pot, since that allowed the US to be stronger by the many immigrants. Instead, the left wants to weaken America, by keeping everyone "racially pure."

At least they're finally showing their true face and plans.

See post 20. He’s President of the Dartmouth Review. Do some research on the Dartmouth Review. This is a set up. A brilliantly played set up that will hoist the liberals on their own petard.

I can't wait for 1 muslim student to object to Hillel House to be on campus, since not only is it a "Zionist front organization," it's a gathering place for the greedy, bloodthirsty Jews to congregate and make their plans to kidnap pure, muslim children to use their blood to make their Passover Matzot (yes, many still believe this!).

I have no doubt that Dartmouth would contract with the first minority owned contractor to get bulldozers (but not CAT, since Caterpillar sells bulldozers to the IDF) to push Hillel and the Jews off campus (since they can't be pushed into the sea... It's just too far away!)

Why bulldoze the campus? What has a building done to you?

Now, hanging the faculty - that is another matter. I’d even bet on more than a few parents joining such a “necktie party”. After all, what would your opinion be if you paid all that tuition and Dartmouth sent back to you a walking, talking socialist.

How would you like to be the parent of this ‘tard, one Phi Delt president Taylor Catchcart.

That one managed to remain at Dartmouth for some years and never learned the first thing about cost/value analysis.

The fact that an affirmative action admittee is “offended” matters not the slightest bit, compared to the benefit of the ‘soiree’. That is, unless Dartmouth is now a totally “PC Speek” campus.

Happenings such as this remind me of the old curse “May G*d rot you and yours” - and it seems it has come to pass at Dartmouth. One can’t help wondering what the parents did to deserve such - then one remembers the parents decided to send their spawn to be taught by the same commies that taught the parents.

Actions, like elections, have consequences. The consequence of generations of commies at Dartmouth has been summed up in the whine of one Latinatrix, and the Dartmouth community response to that whine.

Send ‘em a wedge of Liberal Cheese, the perfect match to their Liberal Whine.

I’m baying at the moon here, but see post #20. Taylor Catchcart is a conservative. Read his quote very closely. Its very carefully constructed to show the idiocy of the liberal “offend no one” mind set. I think he did his parents quite proud quite frankly. He just put the ridiculous mindset of the Dartmouth intelligentsia on display.

The laws of this country weren’t created so as not to offend certain people. Anybody can claim to be offended by the words or actions of numerous things. The people who wanted to put on the Phiesta had their first amendment rights denied. It would be no different if some people around my part of the country objected to the Syttende Mai celebrations of Norwegian heritage. They can object, but they have no right to stop others from celebrating the event.
