Dems Silent on Campus Madness

The hysteria spreading across university campuses presents a huge political problem for Democrats. Few Americans sympathize with pampered, privileged students at Yale, who want to punish a professor for defending “transgressive” Halloween costumes, or—at Princeton—where activists seized the president’s office to demand removal of the name Woodrow Wilson, former president of the university, from the school of international relations.

The very notion that elite campuses fail to provide “safe space” for students of color is ludicrous: begging the question of why hundreds of thousands of applicants still compete to pay $60,000 a year or more in tuition and fees. Now Democrats propose pumping even more taxpayer money into this corrupt system—removing students even further from the cost of their own education. Hillary wants $350 billion more for student loans, and Bernie Sanders demands a trillion for free tuition. Meanwhile, they’re silent on the fatuous extremism taking over on campus, and the gutless response of inept administrators.

    Liberals are still in love w/the 60’s; I mean forgoshsakes we STILL can’t even get past the resurgence of the bell bottom! They absolutely LOVE revolution, left wing revolution, in whatever form it takes. They are happy if their progeny revolt and protest, it makes them feel they’ve done a good job raising their children to be independent thinkers! Not to mention they can feel young again, living vicariously through their kids. It’s a sickness.

      Very well stated Annie. The great unwashed has become the great brainwashed. I literally see it in my own family – one of my 8-year old grandsons, who live with Nana and Papa, comes unglued if I watch Fox News. Oh noooo, not again Papa! “Fox never has answers for anything” (?) “they just yell about nothing.” This from a third-grader whose parents are divorced.

    Seems to me the Left isn*t just in the past. They are caught in a time warp where they are the oppressed champions of virtue–the last of the just. Self delusion is their stock in trade, be it politics or afactual pseudo science like man made global warming.
