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.
Columbia College has the chance to stand up for diverse opinions, or to collapse ignominiously the way Grayson Kirk finally did so many years ago, when the lunatics ended up running the asylum.
Powerline wrote the story before we got to it, with the apt tagline "The whole world is watching."
In the meantime, someone should inform these kids that it isn't 1968 anymore. The college is highly competitive - so where are they finding these infantile idiots?
And will the college which prohibits a pussy reference for the hockey team recruiting (what a joke) stand up to these tantruming spoiled brat brownshirts-in-training?
It's time to find out what Columbia University stands for: the mature discourse of civil, educated adults, or delinquent mobs. I think a semester's suspension might be reasonable. A little time to grow up, just like a "time out" for 4 year-olds.
Your move, Administration.
Update: More from Blue Crab here, and video from Michelle here.
Remember, Columbia University is the one who brings us such stunning examples of "leadership" -- in the form of professor (I use that term loosely) Nick De Genova. Back in 2003 he is the one who espoused such drivel as "I personally would like to see a million Mogadishus" and "The only true heroes are those who find ways that help defeat the U.S. military".
There was a backlash against the university but I believe they let it blow over and there were no repurcussions.
