Greenfield: The Michael Brown Protests are a Narcissistic Tantrum

Ward Connerly let loose on some of the hysteria over the Brown verdict.

Former University of California regent Ward Connerly lashed out on Sunday at University of California, Irvine after the school held a “healing, grieving, and support” counseling session in the wake of a Ferguson grand jury’s decision not to indict police officer Darren Wilson for the killing of Michael Brown.

“If they really wanted to have a teachable moment of understanding the facts of the case as they were presented to the grand jury, that would be one thing,” Connerly told Fox. “But this isn’t about processing facts. It’s about processing the emotions of what you have been told about the case.”

Connerly said that the school’s decision to hold a grief counseling session instead of legal lessons related to the case shows that the school rejects the version of events presented to the grand jury. Connerly also questioned why students in California need grief counseling for an event that happened halfway across the country.

“What’s surprising to me is how individuals 2,000 miles away can somehow get really emotionally attached to this verdict, which leads me to believe it is somewhat make-believe,” Connerly added. “The notion that they can get all riled up to the extent that they need psychological help is really pushing the envelope.”

    It seems clear that all this is very well planned, organised and orchestrated from the White House on down and not simply a tantrum. Good heavens we even had it happen in Canada in places that have nothing to do with Ferguson. In fact those demonstrating probably couldn’t even find Ferguson on a map.

    Grief counseling. Good grief.

    I remember growing up in a small southern Ontario town and about half the adult men served in the second world war. Infantry, mechanized and bombers. Our doctor, our dentist and optometrist. The owner of the grocery store I first worked at was a Lancaster navigator. My high school geography teacher drove a tank. A good family friend walked north through Italy and then helped liberate the low countries.

    All of them were never the same people after coming home but they got on with their lives.

    Grief counseling. How did we get to here?

      One keeps hoping it will get so ridiculous there’ll be a pushback from the Great Silent Majority, but one keeps getting disappointed.

    These are all pampered children of rich whites, with no real problems and no doubts as to the location of their next meal. If the degree in wimmin’s studies doesn’t work out Mom and Dad’s McMansion isn’t going anywhere.

    It’s also a fair bet that the number of black people in their high schools could be counted on the fingers of one hand. Familiarity breeds contempt (and Barack Hussein Obama).
