It’s a classic example of hell-bound good intentions. I’m not going to go as far as George Carlin butt I will say that this whole mess started when progressives started to idolize children. First we had childproof caps, child restraints, child car seats and helmets for everything. It grew into grief counselors at school – initially on an ad hoc basis to deal with the unexpected death of a schoolmate because their kids parents couldn’t be expected to handle that, due to their own grief. Butt once the school budgets expanded to include full time on-staff counselors it became de rigueur to provide grief services for everything from not getting into the college of your choice to hangnails.
Eventually this coddling evolved into college safe spaces, where “children” are protected from anything they don’t agree with.
“I'm sick and tired of people who say that if you debate and disagree with this administration, somehow you're not patriotic. We need to stand up and say we're Americans, and we have the right to debate and disagree with any administration.” – Hillary Clinton (screaming audio here if you’re masochistic)
So here we are: “children” demanding to be protected from chalkings and ideas that make them uncomfortable, like math. Yesterday, once again, the thought police forced the shutdown of a conservative speaker on campus at DePaul University. You remember Milo Yiannopoulos don’t you, conservative rabble rouser? He’s the only flamboyant gay activist the left loves to hate because he doesn’t agree with them. So naturally, he could not be allowed to express his opinions to a crowd that chose to come and listen to him, because…UNCOMFORTABLE DIVERSITY!
The event, held at a packed auditorium, began without incident. But just under 20 minutes in, as Yiannopoulos was ridiculing the idea of “microaggressions,” a group of Black Lives Matter demonstrators stormed the stage and derailed the entire event. – Daily Caller
And this behavior has now moved beyond the college campus, thanks in large part to the Obama/Soros Organizing For America/Action committees. Yesterday they dispatched their mini-fascists to “demonstrate” against The Donald in Albuquerque.
In one of the presidential campaign year’s more grisly spectacles, protesters at a Donald Trump rally in New Mexico threw burning T-shirts, plastic bottles and other items at police officers, injuring several, and toppled trash cans and barricades.
During the rally, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee was interrupted repeatedly by protesters, who shouted, held up banners and resisted removal by security officers.protesters. - NY Post
It’s becoming harder and harder to tell the difference between peaceful demonstrators and rioters.
Anyway, I think all the MOTI attending the Albuquerque event have checked in, although we’re still awaiting detailed accounts. In the mean time, let’s all be careful out there. Butt not too careful.
And remember: the Fascists are the ones who tell you to just shut up.
