Toooolerance and Diveeeersity

always trumped by Ignorance and Bigotry

Smack dab the middle of California agricultural country is a University widely known for its agricultural sciences and its veterinary school. [we took a dog there once, met the World’s Expert on doggie-hide [Frentch fella] and got a diagnosis that no one else could come up with that saved her life.]

It’s also known for being a like, totally organikkk, PC, ban the plastic bag, wear your Uggs with short-shorts in January type University Town similar to Bezerekeley [tho not so urban/hostile] or Boulder and Ann Arbor, etc.

This:

Anti-Israel activists at the University of California, Davis heckled Jewish students and shouted “Allahhu Akbar” at them during a vote last week on a resolution endorsing a boycott of the Jewish state

So at the hippy-dippy, feeeelgood, organikkk University of Toooolerance and Diveeeersity it’s Hawt to shout for — and work for — the obliteration of another Nation and the death of a People.

Ignorance and Bigotry triumph.

…an eight to two vote in favor of the divestment resolution, which is part of a larger movement by anti-Israel groups to attack Israel and pro-Israel students on campus.

…Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP), unknown vandals spray-painted swastikas on a fraternity house belonging to the Jewish AEPi organization…

…”Israel will fall insha’Allah.””…

This oughta work out well.

Political correctness is communist propaganda writ small. In my study of communist societies, I came to the conclusion that the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, nor to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better.

When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or even worse when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity.

To assent to obvious lies is to co-operate with evil, and in some small way to become evil oneself. One’s standing to resist anything is thus eroded, and even destroyed. A society of emasculated liars is easy to control. I think if you examine political correctness, it has the same effect and is intended to.

    The lurch toward open anti-Semitism on the Left is deeply disturbing.

    Political correctness is the mind-killer.

    Some minds, though, are already dead.

    ^ Love the Dune cultural ref!

    Unfortunately, we have a similar challenging mission to resurrect this country’s brain-dead.

    Remember when the moonbats “occupied” Davis’ experimental fields and set back research projects for 20 years or so?

    Great statement by T. Dalrymple, Claire.

    Not surprised at the UCDavis crowd – leftists have been disconnected from reality for far too long to expect anything less.

    Fawkes – the antisemitism that seems to be in full bloom here is but another marker of the Decline of Western Civilization, isn’t it? The fact that this is allowed and not immediately condemned by every adult in authority at that school is the disturbing part.

    Why must these people be so hellbent on tearing down the very system that provides so much for them?

    Fawkes (#5): Great books – the movie was a train-wreck.

    Why must these people be so hellbent on tearing down the very system that provides so much for them?

    IMO, it’s the lack of knowledge of History.

    Like fish in water, they don’t recognize — not. a. clue. — how far ahead of Humanity-for-all-time we all are, here, *stuff-wise*. Nor how the Western Civilization idea of Rule of Law is necessary to support all this productivity and enterprise. Nor how big a step forward the Great Experiment [America] was in The Enlightenment.

    They are no more aware of History and Life and How Things Work than the average pig-herder in a Medieval forest.

    Thanks Fabian Socialist Educatorz !

    I wonder what they’ll be yelling when they are under Sharia law?

    Claire (#9): “They are no more aware of History and Life ….”

    For them, the march of history stopped about the year 700. That’s all they know.

    Aside: Speaking of the Rule of Law: this administration has been working real hard to put that aside. It’s not just a nice-sounding phrase, it’s a legal concept that goes back to the Magna Carta.

    Well, until then the rule had been “the strongest one makes the rules”. Which was sort of recursive.

    And the always excluded themselves. Sound familiar?

    AND then there is *the Lone Ranger & Tonto* ,etc. Replaced by *Dragnet* replaced by John Wayne at the Alamo “sqeell”, replaced by Hiroshima + Nagasaki “KABOOM x 2″.
