“Somebody’s Gotta Do It” and “Dirty Jobs” host, Mike Rowe, appeared on “Fox & Friends” to debate “safe spaces” on faculty campuses — and he did not pull any punches.
The segment began with a discussion on a story out of Florida State University. The university started a program known as the “Students Resilience Project.”
The goal of this project is to scale back the strain of scholars attending the university.
However, students have an option to opt of the anti-stress category if the anti-stress category causes an excessive amount of stress for the scholars.
Rowe, the founder of a company that awards scholarships for work ethic, laughed at the program and known as out the parents and professors that allowed faculty campuses to induce wherever they’re nowadays.
“You can opt out of a stress program if it causes anxiety? It’s getting weird guys. I mean, I don’t really know what else to say that I haven’t said about the safe space mentality and the unintended consequences of ignoring sensible chronology with regard to the priorities we ought to be focused on, educating the youth.”
“We built the safe space. We’re rolling out the anti-stress programs. We’re the ones who were indulging talk of trauma for everyday situations. I think we’re the clouds from which the snowflakes fell and at some point, we have to look at each other and say ‘what’ve we, uh, what’ve we done here?'”
Rowe explicit that he believes that a part of the matter facing faculty students is that they were raised with a disdain for uncertainty.
“We used to look at uncertainty as this thing that was similar to variety. It like, ‘I don’t know what’s going to happen next,’” stated Rowe. “Now, it’s stress-inducing and heavy with potential trauma.”
“If I put the red hat on, half the country isn’t going to hear me,” said Rowe, adding that the problem is too important to be partisan. “Six point six million jobs are available right now and 75 percent of them don’t require a four-year degree.”
This isn’t the primary time Rowe known as out a retardant in American culture. he’s well-known for his blunt views, grappling everything from fatherlessness to the stigma around blue collar jobs and being Christian.
