University President Fighting the 'Snowflake Rebellion'
The president of Oklahoma Wesleyan University went viral in 2015 for an open letter that called out over-sensitive college students who feel "victimized" whenever someone disagrees with them.
"This is not a day care," Dr. Everett Piper wrote. "This is a university."
Nearly two years later, Piper is still standing in opposition to what he calls the "snowflake rebellion."
On "Fox & Friends" this morning, Piper said Oklahoma Wesleyan is a liberal arts college, but some students have put too much emphasis on the "liberal" part.
"If you go back to the classical liberal arts model, let's go back to Oxford 1,000 years ago, why was it established?" Piper said. "To educate a free man, a free woman, a free people, a free culture, to educate us on liberty and liberation. Thus the word 'liberal.'"
He said he believes universities should encourage honest argument and a robust exchange of ideas, as opposed to "ideological fascism" and "safe spaces."
"There's a huge difference between good education and 'safe' education," Piper said. "I'd rather have the first and not the second."
