If your university’s administration is stocked full of sycophants to the Progressive theology, it’s likely they will dutifully allow a platform for your leftist message and hesitate to resist your passion for “Social Justice” even if it should it become violent. And parents of all political persuasions, faced with spending tens of thousands of dollars a year for college (even in-state), are not hesitating to cross your school off their list of places they believe would provide their son or daughter a safe and educational environment.
Since when did police just stand down and watch while people assembling peaceably, as is their right under the First Amendment, are viciously attacked by masked punks wielding nail-driven boards? Since 2017. But the last time before that, which we as a nation remember of course, were the race riots of the ’60s. The police stand down when they’re told to by local or state authorities, and that’s exactly what happened this weekend. It was wrong in the ’60s and it’s wrong now.
James Queally, the crime reporter for the Los Angeles Times, tweeted, “There is a complete mob mentality here. People are randomly accusing random people of being Nazis.” Another Tweet added, “The moderate counter protesters are livid with the violence. ‘We need to get Antifa out of here.’ said man who helped break up fight.’”
Can an ordinary conservative American guest-conduct a symphony for one night at a no-name, municipal orchestra without the national media weighing in to destroy the event? No. Apparently it’s just too much to handle for NPR, the New York Times, and the LA Times to fathom that Dennis Prager, a conservative radio show host and commentator (who also happens to be a musical conductor) could accept an invitation from the Santa Monica Symphony Orchestra to do something he’s done many times before with no fuss: guest conduct the city orchestra through a Haydn Symphony for one evening at the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles.
James Damore, like so many of us, wasn’t thinking the way that Google thought he should be thinking. And so it dealt with the problem by getting rid of him. When users search for results that Google doesn’t like, it guides them to what it thinks they should be looking for. If they persist, then the results vanish. If they upload videos it doesn’t like, they get censored. That’s the totalitarian left-wing Google model in action.
So, the special election in Georgia’s 6th district, which the left tried so hard to make into a referendum on the Trump presidency, did not go their way. Despite spending an outrageous sum of money, in fact the most ever in any U.S. congressional election, the Democratic National Committee still couldn’t pull off a win. Apparently the DNC doesn’t understand that 6th District Georgia voters can’t simply be bought by bright lights and slick ad campaigns.
Georgetown had changed the names of Mulledy Hall and McSherry Hall because Mulledy and McSherry had once been involved in selling some slaves back in the early 19th century. When Christina Hoff Sommers spoke at Georgetown, feminists demanded trigger warnings and a university official threatened College Republicans. But defending actual slavery and rape is still okay at Georgetown. So long as it’s committed by Muslims under the license of the Koran.
