Greek communities on college campuses, namely fraternities with majority white men, have big targets on their backs. Everyone from the mainstream media, feminists, campus administrators and the sexless, beta college males have a visceral hatred of fraternities.
There are a ton of reasons for this: Envy, greed, control, self-hatred and more.
Despite the election of Trump, society is still moving to the left. This has accelerated in recent years. Thus, the idea of white males being the bane of a peaceful, successful society continues to proliferate, especially on college campuses. Any institution or tradition that fosters masculine, independent males is, therefore, a threat.
This hatred doesn’t just come in the form of slurs. It will manifest itself in a number of dangerous ways:
Rape and Sexual Assault Accusations
For many years now women have been using false accusations of rape and sexual assault to attack men. College campuses are a hot spot for these, and has led to many innocent men having their lives ruined.
The most profound example was the infamous ‘A Rape On Campus Article’ published by Rolling Stone. The mainstream media was foaming at the mouth at the story: A bunch of rich, evil white men heinously and violently raped an innocent drunk girl. It fit the narrative perfectly and this story garnered a ton of attention.
The fraternity in question, Phi Kappa Psi at the University of Virginia, was suspended and dealt with a lot of hate. This wasn’t just in the form of campus protests, but legal action.
And guess what?
It was a hoax! A BIG FAT LIE!
Rolling Stone failed to do its due diligence. They didn’t conduct interviews with the right people and failed to look into the background of the situation. They published the story because it fit the narrative of ‘Evil, white male’. Plus, it would garner a lot of attention.
Despite the gross slander and lies, there was no apology. Feminists and college administrators didn’t say sorry or begin to look objectively at their narrative.
This narrative of evil fraternities will continue to proliferate. It’s a particularly disturbing stereotype and has no logic.
For example, the fraternities at my undergrad that had a reputation for using ‘roofies’ were the coolest fraternities. They had the best parties and best looking guys. They had no shortage of women throwing themselves at them.
So what good would using roofies be?
These guys could get laid with ease, so why risk committing a felony and ruining the rest of their life just to get laid?
I’ve had a few girls tell me about these roofie stories. When asking them if they actually tested positive for roofies—they never had. It’s more likely they just got way too drunk and liked to relieve themselves of guilt by blaming it on someone else.
I went to one of the biggest schools in the country. There was never a single situation I was made aware of that involved roofies, let alone a rape or severe sexual assault among fraternity men, yet the sterotype still persists.
There’s also the massive push for diversity. Because fraternities are institutions often dominated by white males, college administrators will make an effort to ‘culturally enrich’ these fraternities.
Forcing diversity never works. Instead, diversity should come naturally. My fraternity had guys who either lived in or immigrated from Asia, Latin America, and Africa. Pretty diverse huh? But no one told us to do that. These guys just got along with us and we had them join. We didn’t have, nor did we want, college administrators telling us who to accept.
Also, some minority students may feel that they are not welcome at traditional fraternities. This is nonsense. Although most fraternities are overwhelmingly white, this is because white guys are attracted to Greek life for the stereotypical image.
There are ‘mulitculturaul’ fraternities out there though if someone doesn’t want to join a ‘white’ fraternity. They specifically target African-Americans, Latinos, and Asians. The university thinks that by facilitating these organizations they’re furthering diversity, when in fact, they’re actually dividing people more along racial and ethnic lines.
Hazing is not a fun experience, but it is a necessary one. It’s why militaries have a boot camp to prepare soldiers for battle. These men (and women) are broken down mentally and physically, only to be built back up. Not only do they come out stronger than going in, but they’ve built powerful relationships with their peers.
This is also used in fraternities. Sure, the hazing here is often for entertainment purposes, but it does serve a valuable purpose that mimics boot camp. Of course, hardening up men strikes fear into campus administrators. Not only for fear of rebellious, strong men, but for legal purposes too.
Pledging is virtually banned on college campuses. Even sending pledges on scavenger hunts is banned for fear of harming these poor, innocent minds.
The Party Police
Fraternity parties are tamer than you think. At my school there were a ton of regulations that were placed upon fraternities. These included:
- No open containers: SOLO cups were not permitted. Nor were kegs. This is because it is assumed that frat guys would slip drugs into these open containers, drag women into their rooms like cavemen and rape them. Ironically, the house next door to us could have keg parties 10 feet away, but not at our house!
- No ‘binge drinking’: Liquor is banned on the main floor of fraternity houses where parties take place. And as insane as it sounds, so were 30 packs of beer! Technically, only 6-packs of beer were permitted. We had to hide our beer when the inspectors (yes inspectors) came around to check to see if we were following all rules.
- 4 Hour Limit: Parties were not permitted to officially run longer than 4 hours. Otherwise, this would encourage ‘binge drinking’ and unsafe behavior.
If a fraternity is even suspected of violating any of the aforementioned rules, they can be kicked off campus. This is an easy way for universities to eliminate any organization that goes against the narrative.
Frat boys take a lot of flack. Yet, when you have a lot of haters, you know you’re doing something right. I’m still a huge fan of young men joining Greek life, for both social opportunities and developing camaraderie and brotherhood. It’s also the last bastion of masculinity and tradition on college campuses, with the exception of athletic competition. Instead of letting all universities fall to the Marxist Menace, we must do what we can to keep the tradition of Greek life alive.
