Yeah that's taking it a bit far.  Postmodern critical theory can be divisive because it's based on identity politics, but it's best to counter ideas we think are bad with better ideas rather than government coercion.

But is it any different than activists using government to push woke ideology to ban the the name of streets, schools, statues etc named after historical figures with some skeletons in the closet?  Or using race and gender quotas in government hiring?

This is a culture war, it is taking place in the private sector, and through government, and everywhere really.  Let's just hope the best ideas win, whatever they are.

Yes, yes it is. For one thing, changing the name of streets and removing statues isn't violating anyone's free speech rights.
