So colleges have decided that they are now tzars, controlling who gets what privilege based on vaccine status, regardless of whether you have paid your tuition.
At Quinnipiac University, if you haven’t taken the jab, you don’t get wifi.
And pay hefty fines.
And put on sackcloth and ashes and cry “leper” every time a vaccinated person approaches you.
Okay, not the last part but the rest is actually true.
Here’s the story according to CNN:
Quinnipiac University officials are cracking down on students who have not met the university deadline for providing their Covid-19 vaccine information with fines and suspension of Wi-Fi access.
Quinnipiac’s email included a fee schedule for students who do not comply with the university’s vaccine requirement.
The university will fine students weekly for failing to provide their vaccine documentation, for a maximum of $2,275 for the semester, according to the email.
…“If a student still has not fulfilled the vaccination requirement by September 14, they will lose access to the Quinnipiac network and Wi-Fi,” said the email to students.
What’s next? Starve and beat them too?

We spent twenty years in Afghanistan trying to free the Afghans from tyrannical overlords but they were hiding, waiting for the right moment to come out.
But while we were fighting tyranny, communism, and Marxism abroad, we forgot to look for it in the hallways of our academic institutions.
And now it’s beginning to show its face.
