The Last Intellectually Honest Liberal On Earth

A nice little rant from Harvard Professor Emeritus and famed Civil Libertarian Alan Dershowitz on “Safe Spaces.”
Among other things, he notes how he needs armed guards to protect him from the Perpetually Outraged™ whenever he speaks on campus.

    I almost wish I were a college professor.
    Can you imagine the fun?
    Microagression/non-safespace warning signs on the lecture-hall doors, Old Glory behind the lectern, leading-off the lecture with a short gun-safety lesson, reading a lesson from The Declaration, group singing some good ol’ cavalry song, lighting my pipe as I deliver the sermon lecture, throwing-out disruptive or foul-mouthed jackasses.
    Man, what a great one-day career that would be.

    ^Lemme know when you get an adjunct appointment Doug. I want to be there.
    Every morning at my high school in the 1950′s, a student was selected to go to the principal’s office and read a passage from the Bible, followed by the pledge of allegiance over the PA system, for which we all stood and faced the flag in our room and recited with him.
    I wish some of our modern Progs were there then, just to see their heads explode, to see them interrupt and get backed into a corner by us guys or beaned by an eraser thrown by our teachers, or watch them jump out of our 8′ tall windows.

    I remember the outrage over stuff like this
