From attorney and culture analyst Matt Barber:
At the heart of all this is rebellion for the sake of rebellion. It was bad in the ’60s, but it’s far worse now. At least in the ’60s the misguided revolutionaries had the courage of their convictions and would face-down the National Guard. Today, they flee, arms in the air, for their Safe Space™ vacuum chamber.
Matt, it’s actually more of a rebellion to demonstrate the power to release irrationally inspired terror and make it work.
You thought this week’s outburst of faux outrage on America’s liberal college campuses was something new. It’s not. While it looks a bit like the counter-cultural hippie revolution of the 1960s (that’s the esthetic they’re going for), today’s “Million Student March” and the other race-baiting, “white privilege,” hissy-fit “protests” at Mizzou, Yale and elsewhere, don’t characterize the counter-culture at all. They are the culture. Conservative truth-tellers now represent the counter-culture.
Indeed, the neophyte Millennials raising their arms in the clenched fist salute (also known as the “Red Salute” by cultural Marxists such as the Soviet Bolsheviks during the Russian Civil War and Mao Tse-tung during the Chinese Civil War) are, unwittingly, conforming, en masse, to the empty romance of “progressive” non-conformity. Freethinkers? Hardly. These kiddos need an instruction manual for toilet paper. Cute as the little buggers may be, they’re but a gaggle of self-entitled, uber-naïve, malleable Marxist robots. More.
Reality check: Actually, they are that, but more, they expect to be coddled and obeyed for the rest of their lives, and that is how it is working out for them so far.
Only the decline and fall of progressive government would leave them without jobs to go to, celebrating their angst while bossing others around. Is that outcome on the horizon?
