Not about important stuff like the concepts of freedom, our constitutional rights, and respect for the opinions of people you don’t happen to agree with. At least not if this story at Breitbart.com is typical of the way college students think.
On Thursday, the Centennial Institute released a video from Caleb Bonham, a conservative pundit, touring a local college campus and asking the students to sign a thank you card to the IRS for targeting tea party groups. Predictably, the geniuses that represent the future of our country were quick to sign off on IRS discrimination against conservatives.
“I think it’s a fake scandal and it makes sense to prosecute the 501(c)3s or whatever it is,” says one bike-riding, bearded, long-haired torch-bearer for American values. “I think this is pretty rad,” says another Phi Beta Kappa member. “I read about that, I thought it was pretty funny because the IRS is actually doing the right thing but the wrong thing at the same time, you know what I mean?” babbles one behatted female student.
“I love discrimination!” says one student. “Support Obama, target the tea party!” says another.
A huge number of student loans are subsidized by taxpayers.
And the taxpayers are not getting their money’s worth.
Here is the video
This doesn’t surprise me. Part of the reason I detest Leftists as the worse sort of intolerant bullies is because of the sort of things I witnessed while attending Indiana University twenty years ago. One episode I remember in particular involved a pro-life activist who the student pro-life organization invited to speak on the campus. I don’t remember name. I wish I did. Anyway, the local Left were not about to let anyone get away with expressing unorthodox opinions in public, so a crowd attended the meeting solely in order to shut him up. Every time the man tried to speak, they would wave coat hangers around and scream as loudly as they could so no one could hear him. Finally the situation became so volatile that the police escorted the speaker out of the room.
The student newspaper, the Indiana Daily Student, published an editorial condemning the hecklers, stating that even if you disagree with someone, you should still respect his right to speak. The newspaper received and published letters from these people saying that they were not the least bit ashamed of how they behaved as it was the right thing to do. The speaker was an anti-choice religious fanatic, and so had no right to to speak at a bastion of learning and tolerance such as Indiana University.
That is why I hate these people. I really hate these totalitarian wannabees because the only reason they aren’t shipping millions of people off to concentration camps is because they do not currently have any opportunity to do so. If some dictator came to power here in America, the idiots I saw shouting down the speaker and the idiots who signed this card would happily join whatever equivalent of the SS he might establish.
