Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Canuck university kills cystic fibrosis fundraiser

Why would they do that?  Because according to the Canucks at this school of “higher” learning, the victims of cystic fibrosis are all a bit too caucasian for their liking.  Details from Canuckistan:

The Carleton University Students’ Association has voted to drop cystic fibrosis as the beneficiary of its annual Shinearama fundraiser, arguing that the illness is not “inclusive” enough.

Cystic fibrosis “has been recently revealed to only affect white people, and primarily men” said the motion read to student councillors, who voted almost unanimously in favour of it.

Carleton students have fanned out across the city near the beginning of the school year to raise money to fight the illness for years. But according to the motion read Monday night to student councillors, “all orientees and volunteers should feel like their fundraising efforts will serve the their (sic) diverse communities.”

Mr. Bergamini said the orientation week fundraiser, which is carried out by students at many universities across Canada, raised about $1-million last year. Shinearama has raised money for cystic fibrosis research for more than 25 years.

“I think they see this, in their own twisted way, as a win for diversity,” said Mr. Bergamini. “I see it as a loss for people with cystic fibrosis.”

Meanwhile, he said the vote was an example of political correctness gone too far in student government.  (Ya think??? – Ed.)

The fact that C.F. does NOT kill only white people notwithstanding, what kind of depravity must one suffer from to where skin color of the victims of a heinous disease ever enters the thought process?  How would you sick Canucks like to stand in front of God Almighty on the day of your judgment and tell Him that you would have been glad to aid His children suffering from C.F. if only He had given them greater pigmentation?

Hey, let’s take this a step further, shall we?  How about not holding any fundraisers for breast cancer, since over 99% of the victims are female?  I mean, that’s not “inclusive”, now is it?  Or what about sickle cell anemia, since that primarily affects the black community?  The possibilities are endless!

And liberals think that we need to emulate the Canucks?  No thanks!

  2. You expect to read a story like this only on April 1, because the “thinking” behind such a decision is so damned stupid that it must surely be a joke. Perhaps a parody of political correctness gone too far. Guess not, though…

  6. Don’t be moronic. The Shinerama thing is still around; it made an impressive seminar at the University of Manitoba just a few months ago. It is hardly ‘dead’.
