UC Imposes PC Smoking Ban

UC Imposes PC Smoking Ban

John Seiler:

Even though it’s advertised as a health measure, smoking bans actually are Politically Correct posturing. They say, “I’m better than you. You’re a working-class schlub for smoking. I’m an elitist, over-educated, Politically Correct snob. Stop enjoying yourself.”

You can see this in the University of California’s new ban on smoking tobacco — not just inside government buildings, but everywhere on campus grounds. The tobacco prohibition was announced by UC President Mark G. Yudof, who looks like he could use a couple of drags on a coffin nail to calm himself down, just like President Obama does.

“Offering a smoke-free environment will contribute positively to the health and well-being of all UC students, faculty, staff and our patients and visitors,” he wrote in a letter.

Looks like it’s back to smokin’ in the boys’ room — although no doubt they’ll install spy cameras and smoke detectors to sniff out offenders.

Yudof said the ban advances UC’s self-image as “a national leader in healthcare and environmental practices.” But does anybody over the age of six months old not know that smoking has some hazards? We’ve all been indoctrinated to that effect. I remember giving a little speech against smoking in my seventh-grade English class back at Benjamin Franklin Junior High School in Michigan so long ago as 1968. That’s 45 years.

And we’re talking university kids here.

Reported the Los Angeles Times, “In the letter, he wrote that smoke-free means prohibiting not just cigarettes but also smokeless tobacco products and unregulated nicotine products, in both indoor and outdoor spaces — including parking lots and residence halls. The sale and advertising of tobacco products will also be blocked, he said.”

Which means everything will just go underground.

And how about that other substance, marijuana? It’s already illegal, although the fine for just smoking the wacky tobacky is just $100 in California. And you know kids have been ignoring that. And what about medical marijuana?

It’s also ironic that the hippy protest generation that smoked and toked its way through college 40 years ago now is imposing these PC thought and smoking bans now that it runs things. Ironic and hypocritical.

When officious officials ban something outright, usually kids do the opposite. So I see this in a positive light. It’s another imposition by a P.C. administration that will produce rebellion in youngsters.

Kids need to question the cultural Marxism imposed in almost all humanities courses today, and the health Marxism behind the smoking ban.

Kids, it’s time to revolt and overturn the Establishment.

Smoke ’em if you got ’em.

    Yudof is just a pawn for the oligarchs who want to impose more control over your lives. He’s a spoke in the wheel who does as he’s told.

    Yudof is a banker bootlicker. He calls in Mr. Banker to sell a $50,000 loan to a 18 year old kid for a sociology degree. Since the loans are guarateed by the government (taxpayers) Yudof and Mr. Banker do just fine. Neither give a crap whether the kid can pay back the loan or not. Yudof fills his classroom seat and Mr. Banker collects principle and interest. And the third stool leg is the government that forbids students from declaring bankruptcy on student debt. Even if the poor kid is living out of a dipsy dumpster the loan and accumulating interest will follow him to his grave. Yudof knows this. So does Mr. Banker. They are loan sharks with nothing to lose.

    Eventually the govenment will outlaw tobacco products and confiscate your assets if they find any on your person or property. Just like they do with drugs. It’s a huge moneymaker for the system. They need the money to fund the pensions. And once they seize your stuff the burden of proof is on YOU to PROVE that you’re innocent. It’s obvious what direction they’re moving in. Can’t smoke on the beach, can’t smoke on college campuses, some people can’t even smoke in their own homes (ie. Laguna Woods). The vice grips continue to close. Tobacco will eventually be illegal. Mark my words.

    E-cigarettes, all of the nicotine, none of the cancer risk.

    Drives the anti-smoking zealots nuts.

    Makes you wonder if people who don’t smoke will start…

    Why not?

    C.S. Lewis warned, saying: “Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”
