Higher education should be THE place for controvery, for debate, for free and open exchange of ideas. Our colleges and university, on the contrary, have become Stalinist re-education camps where throught crimes are punished rigorously to achieve numb conformity pressed by idiots to support the ridiculous.
Are you implying that all Middle America is anti-Semitic? If so, where are the atrocities, where are the assaults and destruction. Where are all the Middle-American cossacks hiding, waiting to chase you up and down Fifth Avenue? Where is any real crisis here - other than in depths of your imagination?
Great post, as usual, but why single out WASPs as pro-war 75 years ago? Surely there were other groups involved. WASPs have become virtually every political pundit's go-to bad guys. And... yeah... I'm WASP and don't have that thin a skin.
How many Hungarians died under communist oppression?
"...Pervasive war-weariness among the US electorate, clearly indicated by strong public support for Obama's choice of diplomacy over missile strikes to dismantle Syrias chemical weapons arsenal."
This is backwards. Obama and his administration were steered from attacking Syria by polls tracking wildly against such a move, which undoubtedly would burden America with yet another pointless war. This was the first time a war for Israel's sake was stopped by Joe and Joan Lunchbucket.
"...Pervasive war-weariness among the US electorate, clearly indicated by strong public support for Obamas choice of diplomacy over missile strikes to dismantle Syrias chemical weapons arsenal."
With a mom as hideously stupid as his, no wonder the biker decided it would be a peachy idea lynch-mobbing a family with a toddler aboard. How about rounding up all these sterling specimens, these brave biker dudes? They are human clutter. They deserve a long, harsh prison experience to sharpen their loser skills.
Now we know: The truth is anti-Semitic.
I don't think upholding any cause is as important as preserving a dogma that's obviously failed. In corruption of original Marxist orthodoxy (which, as template for government and economics is failure in its own right), America's Left made the revolutionary struggle issue of race instead of class. With an African-American re-elected to the Presidency, this model has been impossible to sustain. Now it's license for self-reverence and whining for minorities, and self-aggrandizing sanctimony for blinkered white true believers. The more obvious its passing, the more desperate and vicious this hapless denial will become.
I'm saying he shouldn't have put himself in a position to be jumped - like maybe not getting out of his car after he'd notified police - and especially not carry a gun to enhance his role as neighborhood watch to junior G-man.
