Oklahoma university president: School is not a ‘day care’ or ‘safe space’ BY Jason Silverstein NEW YORK DAILY NEWS Updated: Monday, November 30, 2015, 9:26 AM A A A Share this URL An Oklahoma university president has an incendiary message to politically correct students: Grow up or get out. "This is not a day care," Everett Piper, president of Oklahoma Wesleyan University, wrote in a fiery blog post on the school’s website last week. "This is a university!" Thanks to a new wave of political protests on college campuses — like the recent upheavals at the University of Missouri, Yale University and Ithaca University — many colleges are scrambling to provide safe spaces and broader discussions about cultural and racial tensions on campus. OKWUniv Oklahoma Wesleyan University President Everett Piper slams PC campus culture in a new blog post. Piper, president of a private evangelical Christian university with about 1,200 students, is having none of it. His post starts by railing against a student who said he felt “victimized” by an on-campus sermon about love. "Our culture has actually taught our kids to be this self-absorbed and narcissistic!" Piper writes. OKWUniv The president of Oklahoma Wesleyan University said the school is not a "safe space." "Any time their feelings are hurt, they are the victims!...If you want the chaplain to tell you you’re a victim rather than tell you that you need virtue, this may not be the university you’re looking for." Piper insists the school is "not a 'safe space,' but rather, a place to learn....This is a place where you quickly learned that you need to grow up!" This hardly Piper’s first firebomb editorial against liberal values. As a weekly columnist for Bartlesville’s Examiner-Enterprise, the university president has written recent editorials criticizing transgender activism, defending law-breaking Kentucky county clerk Kim Davis and opposing the Supreme Court’s legalization of gay marriage. Piper could not be immediately reached for comment.
