Meet ‘Generation Snowflake’ – the hysterical young women who can’t cope with being offended
There is nothing new under the sun. We had bossy little girls made by bossy mothers who grew up into bossy college girls, and then women, like Hillary Clinton, way back in the antediluvian era when I was but a college sprat.

Milo, you magnificent bastard, that was spectacular!
The problem is people like this do not have reasonable arguments, they have been too long in the echo chamber, and when exposed to the real world, the arguments they are wont to make are insufficient. They have no idea what do do, the echo chamber never required they have a good argument, or aback up argument. And they have neither. Miffed, this one is going home to pout.

Why the Left Loathes Western Civilization
. . . which is why I am beginning to rethink my position on whether college is, or is not, too expensive.
"This month Stanford University students voted on a campus resolution that would have had their college require a course on Western civilization — as it did until the 1980s. Stanford students rejected the proposal 1,992 to 347. A columnist in the Stanford Daily explained why: Teaching Western civilization means “upholding white supremacy, capitalism, and colonialism, and all other oppressive systems that flow from Western civilizations.'"
"After decades of considering this question, the answer, I have concluded, is: standards. The Left hates standards – moral standards, artistic standards, cultural standards. The West is built on all three, and has excelled in all three."
This makes some sense.
And in this time when progressivism has endured long beyond its competence, Eric Hoffer writes, "Whenever we find a dispensation enduring beyond its span of competence, there is either an entire absence of an educated class or an intimate alliance between those in power and the men of words."
Eric Hoffer, The True Believer (1951)
The progressive era has lasted long beyond its span of competence and this is because there is a clear, unequivocal alliance between the progressives politicians, journalists, academics, government bureaucrats, teachers, union bosses, among others.
The Left loathe Western Civilization because in addition to standards it so clearly establishes that the progressive era has lasted beyond its span, that it is becoming a heresy of liberalism, by falling into anti-republican fascism, into anti-free market socialism, and in all things anti-human. The Left is anti-Western Civilization for the same reason vampires are anti-sun. They cannot survive the harsh, bright light of day, or in this case reason, faith, beauty, and conservatism.

Tennessee Votes to Cut Diversity Spending So Students Protest
. . . parody that The Onion!
"The House and Senate in Tennessee have both voted to cut diversity spending (that is, to stop wasting money on a an office that makes leftists feel good) and, as we read in this IHE story, many students staged a protest by walking out of class and obstructing sidewalks on campus."
Why bother reading parody, even great parody when the progressives are outstripping it at every turn?
I am rethinking my position on the cost of college. If these dull witted sheeple are bound and determined to be charged for all manner of nonsense, who am I to stop them. Revel in the debt slavery sheeple!
