Students at the University of Exeter have a rare opportunity to reject the censorious, divisive policies of the regressive left at student government elections this week. M.AástudentáPaul Rota is running for office on a platform that challenges the wackiest ideas of the regressive left, including "safe spaces" and "cultural appropriation." 2015 saw an escalation of radicalism on campus, with reports of white students being banned from campus events in the U.K, while professors, presidents and faculty members on U.S campuses were hounded from their positions for offering the mildest of challenges to student regressives. In one memorable incident, a professor at Yale faced weeks of outrage for the crime of defending offensive Halloween costumes.
Paul Rota hopes to be the gust that blows away this intellectually suffocating atmosphere, at least on his own campus of Exeter Univeristy. He'sárunning for the office of Welfare and Diversity officer, a position usually reserved for identity-obsessed zealots of the regressive left like the University of Goldsmiths' notoriously racist Bahar Mustafa.
Diversity officers are usually concerned with segregationist policies like minority-only "safe spaces," banning conservative speakers from campus, or ensuring that peoples' gender pronouns are respected. In short, Rota wants to challenge the regressive left from one of their own strongholds.
He proposes to dissolve the "Liberation Council," a student body set up solely to spread intersectional feminism on campus. In his manifesto, Rota accuses them of "wasting everybody's time." If elected, he will also work to overturn Exeter's "safe space" code, pointing out that campus safe spaces currently have more to do with banning political speech than protecting students' safety. Last but not least, Rota wants to hold a referendum on Exeter's membership of the National Union of Students (NUS) ľ the notoriously left-wing national umbrella of student unions in the U.K.
