Rounding up the unclean unvaccinated: It is coming.
They’re coming for you next: Unvaccinated students at Penn State who fail to get a COVID test for three weeks in a row are now banned from the school, including a ban from even attending remote classes.
At Penn State University, 117 students have been placed on interim suspension for failure to comply with the university’s weekly COVID-19 testing requirement.
Students at University Park who are subject to required weekly COVID-19 testing and who have missed at least three weeks of testing have been notified by Penn State that they are out of compliance with the university’s health and safety policies and have been placed on interim suspension through the Office of Student Conduct, a statement from Penn State said.
Students on interim suspension may not participate in classes, in-person or remotely; are not allowed on university property; and may not attend any Penn State-sponsored events, programs, and activities, including football games. On-campus students on interim suspension also are temporarily removed from their residence halls.
The highlighted word prove the insanity and irrationality of this policy. It is not aimed at protecting anyone from getting sick, since if that was its true goal the school would have no problem with unvaccinated but untested students from attending classes remotely.
Instead, the policy is being used as a tool to dehumanize the student population and make them see themselves as mindless worker drones to whom the powers-that-be can do anything to, without opposition. And while the school itself has some limitations in its ability to crush the human spirit, its policies help prepare these poor students for life in the oppressive society that the leftist administrators and faculty in academia wish to create. Once they graduate, they will have been well taught to obey any order of their superiors, no matter how insane.
It also appears this policy is working, based on this editorial published yesterday at the college’s student newspaper, The Collegian: Penn State makes right decision to suspend students who don’t represent the university. To quote the opinion of the students:
Whenever an institution implements rules, it’s expected they follow through with punishment when said rules are violated. After a poor initial response to the coronavirus pandemic, it’s a promising sight to see Penn State crack down on those who aren’t following testing guidelines.
In other words, these students have been well trained to follow orders. And if that means eventually rounding up these unclean malcontents, then so be it. It is far better for society to remove unclean people from sight then force the clean and pure to tolerate them.
Some readers might claim that it is wrong for the unvaccinated to go about their business without consequences. But what harm can they do, if the bulk of the student community is vaccinated? Isn’t the vaccine supposed to make you safe from COVID? And even if it is not foolproof, it remains a blunt fact that healthy young people — like college students — are under almost no risk from the Wuhan virus. Just like the flu, it might make them sick for a few days, but they will then quickly recover and in fact be better immunized against the disease than the vaccinated. There is no reason for these students to fear it, at all.
But yet they do. The indoctrination has succeeded quite well. They are now well ruled by their “betters”, and will follow any command of those “betters” if properly couched with just the right amount of fear-mongering.
Meanwhile, Penn State is a public university. The state’s legislature is controlled by Republicans. As usual, they are doing nothing about this. What good are they?
