‘Not a daycare’: University president comes out strong against campus snowflake culture

The president of one of America’s top Christian colleges is making sure his students know one thing… higher education is “not a daycare.”

Appearing on Fox News’ “The Story” with Martha MacCallum, Wesleyan Oklahoma Wesleyan University President Dr. Everett Piper told the host that students need to learn that “ideas have consequences.”

“Good ideas lead to good culture, good community, good corporations, good government, good kids, and bad ideas lead to the opposite,” he said.

“We’ve been teaching this narcissism and self-absorption, we’ve been teaching this victimization for decades,” he said. “Why are we surprised to see self-absorbed, narcissistic students who are being vengeful and demonstrating vice rather than virtue in the public square?”

Everett was discussing his new book “Not A Day Care” which is an expansion of a 2015 op-ed he wrote to students informing them that his college was not going to become a safe space.

“My industry created this monster. We caused this problem,” he said.

“Today if you don’t comply, if you are not one of us, if you don’t think like I think and believe like I believe, if you are not going to say what I want you to say — we do not want you,” he said of the current college culture. “And we do this all under the banner of tolerance. It’s like saying I can’t tolerate your intolerance or I hate you hateful people. It’s self refuting at every turn.”
