In an ongoing affront to satire and parody the MIT administration dons the cloak of free speech to explain its recognition of groups celebrating the beheading of babies and global pogrom against Jews but refuses to recognize the MIT Alumni Free Speech Alliance (MFSA) because it is too controversial.
Leading the doubletalk, doublethink, and double standards brigade is Whitney Espich, CEO of the administration-controlled, toady operated MIT Alumni Association. Drop her an email and ask why she has been pocket vetoing the MIT Free Speech Alliance application for affiliation since last spring.
Bending over backwards to play nice, the MFSA continues to supinely accept its relegation to second class citizenship hoping that sheer embarrassment might one day get the beleaguered administration to change its tune.
And so … bring on the embarrassment!
