You've all heard about the controversy over Confederate monuments. Maybe even the controversy over a New Jersey assemblyman posing for a picture with a Confederate flag.

But Jim Gearhart says if you really want nutty signs of far-left political correctness, look no further than the nation's college campuses. How about across the river in Philadelphia, where Bryn Mawr College has decided to put a moratorium on using one of its founders' names to refer to a library and large hall that both carry her name — because she held racist views.

Or how about on the other side of the country, where the University of Southern Californian's Trojan mascot is coming under scrutiny for having a horse almost the same name as the horse that Confederate General Robert E. Lee rode.

"Even the horse was a racist," Jim says mockingly in the latest installment of the Jim Gearhart Show podcast, available here, on iTunes and Google Play.

And it's just part of what Jim takes on in the latest installment of his podcast. Check out the full episode below to hear the rest. Email Jim at
