We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
No. You didn't read far enough. She blames the violence on Trump. He's the guilty party. The students are innocent victims of the evil that Trump has brought.
Just another useful idiot who will be wondering how did it come to this, that she's in the boxcar going to the camps. Believing it to her last breath before the .25 ACP crashes into her brain stem. Damn Trump! It was he that unleashed all this evil, if only he and his supporters had accepted their dhimmi status and paid the jizya and accepted their fate as determined by we the natural aristocracy, none of this would have come to pass.
To people who wish to spin this story as one about what’s wrong with elite colleges and universities, you are mistaken. Please instead consider this as a metaphor for what is wrong with our country, and on that, Charles Murray and I would agree. This was the saddest day of my life. We have got to do better by those who feel and are marginalized. Our 230-year constitutional democracy depends on it, especially when our current President is blind to the evils he has unleashed.
she had her 15 minutes of victimhood. but at least she got to see her whelp's jazz concert.

"We have got to do better by those who feel and are marginalized."
Funny. I could've sworn that she was physically attacked by students who are attending a college that costs $60,000 a year. According to this woman, however, Middlebury College students both feel and are marginalized. Huh.
Where are the adults in this situation? It's normal for students to act like spoiled brats, but the professors are excusing these behaviors and the administrators are nowhere to be found.
If this sort of thing keeps up, the Democrats are going to get creamed in the 2018 elections.
I would bet that there is a small group of students at this college who got a free ride AND that this core group of student were carefully selected from a specific group of ethnicities and genders to create a impression of diversity. These free loading students have no sense of the true gift this $50k a year free ride really is. But they are very very aware of their special status and that they will be handled with kid gloves and that any whines and groans they emit will be treated like real pain and discrimination. In this way they are indeed the "marginalized" they were matriculated as the token marginalized students and they are fulfilling their self-fulfilling prophecy as expected. They may graduate with a degree in womens/Hispanic/black studies which along with $5 will buy them a double latte at Starbucks, including tip. They will undoubtedly be hired into a government job to continue their career as token diversity where they will quickly rise to the top in a hyper Peter principle feat where their inability will require the full time work of two other government employees to repair or disguise the damage they cause. Hey! It's a win/win by our current standards.
