Jonathan Last argues that the absurd and totalitarian leftist culture predominating at America’s institutes of ‘higher learning’ is starting to choke on its own ridiculous and unsustainable excesses. Via the Weekly Standard –
If you pay any attention to the ways in which radicalism dominates the culture of the university these days, you’re likely to feel as though you’ve gone through the looking glass. “White privilege.” “Trigger warnings.” “Rape culture.” All of this (and much else) has turned academia into a bizarre, Orwellian simulacrum of itself. And not only that, but the radicalism has migrated outward into the broader culture, too. It’s the kind of insanity we haven’t seen in America since the bad old days of the early 1970s.
The good news is that these sorts of perversions always burn themselves out-they’re too untethered to reality. Eventually people realize that the radicalism is really about just one thing: power. And once people begin to challenge the dogmas, they collapse in a cascade. Because as they lose their power to exact a price for criticism, they attract more of it.
The bad news is that these radical revolutions can deal out a great amount of harm before they are discredited.
Nothing would be finer than if these little fascists were to be seen as the phony caricatures they really are, instead of the feared and effective tools of tyranny they are currently. Perception is reality, and liberty is getting its ass kicked by a bunch of sissies at the present time. Overbearing – and grossly unnecessary – mass guilt is the one thing holding everyone back from taking the simple step of telling the sissies to ‘sit down and shut up!’ Mass guilt is also the one thing that gave us President Barack Hussein Obama (speaking of sissies.) And it is not a coincidence that the scope and power of Marxist propaganda has expanded considerably during this man’s presidency, being that his Regime has subtly (and sometimes not-so-subtly) been cheer-leading and engineering so much of it …
A Boston police officer honored for his role in the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombing was fighting for his life Saturday, a night after he was shot in the face during a traffic stop that ended when other officers shot and killed his attacker, the city’s authorities said.
Officer John Moynihan, 34, was struck just below his right eye and the bullet remained lodged below his right ear. He was listed in critical condition and was in a medically-induced coma, Commissioner William Evans said.
“When he initially came in he was responsive, but he’s heavily sedated. They basically have him in an induced coma at this time,” Evans said, according to MyFoxBoston.com.

ABUJA, Nigeria (AP) — Boko Haram extremists killed 41 people, including a legislator, and scared hundreds of people from polling stations but millions voted across Nigeria Saturday in the most closely contested presidential race in the nation’s history.
All the Boko Haram attacks took place in northeastern Nigeria, where the military Friday announced it had cleared the Islamic extremists from all major centers, including the headquarters of their so-called Islamic caliphate.
Nearly 60 million people have cards to vote, and for the first time there is a possibility that a challenger can defeat a sitting president in the high-stakes contest to govern Africa’s richest and most populous nation.
The report shows that Israel spent its research funds on developing short wavelength lasers capable of being attached to an F-15 fighter jet or an Air Force anti-satellite miniature homing device. Israel also began to develop codes that would enable the country to make hydrogen bombs.
In time, God will punish Obama and his minions for their evil, of this we can be sure. The real questions are, will he and they bring down the United States of America with them? And how much harm will they get away with bringing to the State of Israel and the Jewish people before they are finished? Blood is on your hands, Democratic voters …
The Arizona big-shot who made headlines in 2012 after filming himself berating a Chick-fil-A employee – and then subsequently getting fired from his job as a CFO of a medical device manufacturer when the video went viral – is now living on food stamps and his family has lost their home. Apparently, nobody wanted to hire the opinionated jerk, who nonetheless says he does not regret the stand he took. Well, let’s be glad telling an innocent cashier off in the name of special privileges for a fringe group was worth this man destroying his family and any future employment prospects for himself. Obama and his Christ-hating minions must be so proud, maybe they’ll support his family out of sympathy …
Even if Levin is erring in his analysis, it is far preferable and more moral we ere on the side of caution than allow the Jewish people to face another Holocaust. In a just world, Obama would be facing charges of crimes against humanity for the horror he is working to engineer in the Middle East. Click here to listen to Levin explain his reasoning, lest anyone think he is full of hyperbole and mere smite toward our beloved president …
