but I’m going to editorialize a bit on something I came across via Instapundit.com
And I certainly don’t copy-paste long quotes from recent things, but I’m making an exception because as a history hobby-ist I found this interesting.
No, modern academia, we are not going keep subsidizing the progressive fantasylands that are the colleges of today. It’s more than the fact that technology has made the idea of giant campuses full of hungover sophomores listening to droning professors in 500-seat lecture halls fiscally impossible. It’s also that we’re sick of funding hordes of due process-hating parasites who think that you can count as “education” seminars like “Leave It to Beaver? Questions of LGBT Intersectionality and Gender Identity in 50s Sit-Coms.”
And we’re sick of funding your war upon our kids for the crime of being normal. If our kids are male, you hate them and call them “rapists” even as you gush over rapist-apologist Hillary. If our kids are Christian or Jewish, you want to treat them like outcasts for not worshipping your false gods. And you want to shut them up by empowering campus freaks who shriek that our kids’ dissenting views make them feel “unsafe.”
Tick-tock, the era of the computer college education is coming to an end. Maybe you can find new jobs in the shrinking classified ad sections of those liberal newspapers you still read.
No, liberals, we refuse to go along and be complicit in the suicide of our culture and our country. Your long-term strategy has been to browbeat us into acquiescence, to pester, prod, and persecute us into silence and submission. And why? Because your only power over us is what power we allow you to have.
Unlike your leftist heroes elsewhere, American leftists have no army of willing murderers to enforce your sick vision at the point of a gun – except in Wisconsin, and the spotlight’s on that now, you scurrying cockroaches.
Just remember that most of you can’t even guess correctly which end of a gun goes “bang.” So you have to depend upon us normal people going along, of not resisting, of just giving up.
Well, we aren’t giving up. We’re on to you. We’re fighting back. And here’s our battle cry:
It’s part of a much longer article. It’s interesting. I thought it was a very nice summary.
Which reminds me, remember that year we read the Grievances the week or two before Independence Day? I’m thinking I might do something constitutional in nature for the June
Crappy Old Book of the Month. Maybe with a Randian flair as I hear in, “[Y]our only power over us is what power we allow you to have.”
That could be a lot of fun. I have a bunch of crappy old books that are about or reference the Constitution of The United States of America.
That just leaves May. What
Crappy Old Book of the Month in May?

ADDED #2: On reading it as you would, I realized I might have a “grievances” tag and I was right!
