Into the Mind of a Liberal

   Used to be that you would rarely see a liberal eat one of their own but the political correctness has gotten so bad that even they run afoul of the rules and suffer from a beat down.

   This video is amazing, group of Yale students surrounding some sort of supervisor of their area, complete with finger snapping as some sort of applause or indication of agreement with what the speaker is saying.   Another video then shows up showing the poor liberal supervisor pleading for the students to tell him the right words to use to apologize without further offense.  Sickening… Lord of the Flies sort of thing or right out of the Cultural Revolution where children and students chastised and executed the adults.

  The guy being verbally abused and attacked was Nicholas Christakis, a Yale professor of Sociology, who had the gall to  defend his wife, another liberal professor who was unwise enough to send out an email to the entire student body in response to the administrator's insistence that  Halloween costumes be "culturally aware and not insensitive".  Here is what she wrote that caused such a stink:

  "Have we lost faith in young people's capacity—in your capacity—to exercise self-censure, through social norming, and also in your capacity to ignore or reject things that trouble you? What does this debate about Halloween costumes say about our view of young adults, of their strength and judgment? Whose business is it to control the forms of costumes of young people? It's not mine, I know that."

  The email caused an eruption in the student body where the two married professors served as supervisors for the students.  Over 100 students surround the guy taking turns berating him and demanding he shame his wife for her words.  They guy keeps his cool and attempts to profusely apologize yet each time he apologizes he manages to offend the students even more.  One student demands that the professor call her by her first name before she will speak to him and the resulting exchange occurs:

 "Sorry, what's my name first?" she says with a smirk.

"See, that's the thing, I have over 500 students," Nicholas says.

"I was in your class freshman year," she continues. "You were my sophomore year advisor. . . I live here, I eat in the dining hall for all three meals. And you should know my name. My name is Mikayla."

  The guy eventually is labeled racist by the crowd and is accused of creating a space for violence.  The students then demand that he be fired as well as his wife.  If you watch all four videos it is clear that these college students are not capable of having a rational discussion with someone that dared to oppose their claims of racism.  The threat of having someone dress up in a Halloween costume that might offend them was enough to ruin two liberal professor's careers

   The liberal cry babies, the liberal movement, and some of the more religious conservative movements have this in common.  Despite preaching tolerance and the rule of law they are generally the first to lash out at imagined slights and demand obedience to their views.  Perhaps this is why political correctness has flourished, any pushback is stamped out ruthlessly and completely.  Doesn't it remind you of what Hitler did in the 1930's to gain power?
