A friend just sent the petition being circulated by Hindu students against Prof @AudreyTruschke. Am not sharing that. What insufferable, ill-informed toxic fragility is this? If scholarship threaten your safety, and your religion. Perhaps time to rethink what those values are.

Also adding a thread by @quizzicalguy where you debunks the claim of Hindu genocide the students have listed as proof of “bigotry” against them!

Below a thread on how the Third Reich “regulated” humor.
In 1934, the Nazi state passed a “Law Against Treacherous Attacks on the State and Party and for the Protection of the Party Uniform,” — “which made laughing and telling jokes about the regime a capital offense.”
It remade the Gleichschaltung (Synchronization) regulations, “which, among other things, brought popular forms of entertainment and humor under the control of the Ministry of Propaganda and People’s Enlightenment.”
