The head of a college in Oklahoma has an incendiary message to politically correct students: Grow up or get out.

"This is not a day care," Everett Piper, president of Oklahoma Wesleyan University, wrote in a fiery blog post on the school’s website last week.


The post quickly gained attention after a growing number of students protested racial discrimination and other issues on campuses across the U.S.

Piper said his school was not meant to be a “safe place” but somewhere for students to attend and “learn that life isn’t about you, but about others.”

In the blog he said:

"Our culture has actually taught our kids to be this self-absorbed and narcissistic. Any time their feelings are hurt, they are the victims. Anyone who dares challenge them and, thus, makes them 'feel bad' about themselves, is a 'hater,' a 'bigot,' an 'oppressor,' and a 'victimizer.'"

Piper's bio on the school's website touts him as "passionate about providing students with the best opportunities to impact culture, think independently, and build a biblical foundation for their beliefs."
