My dear readers...I was all set to give you a cheery, homey blog today; one that might generate a smile or a chuckle or two. I thought you deserved it after several days of inflicting savagery on liberal silliness.
Then I made the mistake of turning on the evening news last night. Sadly, here's what I found:
A 22 year old woman in Quincy, Massachusetts called in a bomb threat to her university's graduation ceremony. Her motive? She was not getting to graduate and hadn't told her parents, so thought it a good idea to phone in a bomb threat and get the graduation ceremony cancelled, lest her parents see that she's missing up there on the dais when they are handing out diplomas.
A Yale University professor, the honored speaker at a small Pennsylvania college's graduation ceremony castigated the graduates for having fostered a riot in protest of the previously scheduled speaker, the President of Berkley, who was forced to break up an Occupy protest at UC when it turned violent. The Yale professor admonished the graduates for being of small mind and intolerant of opposing points of view. This comes on the heels of a plethora of similar protests, all driven by liberals mind you, across this nation.
I found it a bit ironic that a Yale Civics and Sociology professor, one who surely helped to indoctrinate our nation's youth in the liberal philosophy is himself shocked at how effective he and his fellow academics have succeeded in brainwashing....to the extent that their liberal views have already hardened..and to the extent that tolerance of opposing points of view is no longer allowed.
Finally, we have 24 students, all Hispanic, at Sierra Linda High School in Tolleson, Arizona, who are taking to the streets to protest that their high school will not allow them to walk in, and participate in their school's graduation ceremony. It seems all 24 failed to pass the states highly lenient standardized AIMS test, failing both English and Math. "No matter!", they should let us wear our caps and gowns and be recognized just as the graduates will be honored!
And really, who can blame them? These Hispanic kids have watched their parents march in the cities of America and have been successful in raising enough hell to keep them from being deported....so, what the hell, let's stand out in front of the school and see if we can't gin up enough public support to get us up there with our caps and gowns with those who took the time to study, to do homework, to listen when the teacher was teaching the lessons! What's the big deal?
And really, what is the big deal? In an age where every kid gets a trophy for a last place finish in soccer, where blue ribbons are given out for substandard performance, it's a bit of a shock when the real world intrudes on your charmed life, right?
And when you've been taught that, if you throw a loud enough tantrum, you'll get your way, why not throw that same tantrum when the guest speaker at your graduation ceremony is someone who doesn't agree with you!
And hey, if you've been able to bamboozle your parents into forking out $40,000 a year for tuition...and you use the academic venue to party hearty, you don't want to face the folks when they found out their $160,000 dollars went right down the urinal and the other end of a bong, right? So, what the hell, call in a bomb threat, ruin the occasion for everybody...but for god's sake don't let mommy and daddy know you couldn't hack that 9 semester hour class load!
I'm sorry folks....look for that cheery and homey blog essay on a less newsworthy day...these libtards just keep feeding me red meat and I just can't pass it up.
