Jason Riley, of the War Street Journal Editorial Report, was joined by the rest of crew, on Fox News, to swank about being invited and disinvited to speak across the nation’s left-liberal campuses. The rest, Bret Stephens, Mary Kissel, Mary O’Grady, all expressed disinvitation envy.
On freedom of speech, neocon establishment circuit speakers limp along as well (although you won’t hear them introduce the deciding variable: private property. Where? On whose property do you wish to speak?)
For the rest, neocons seldom challenge students on matters racial (except to blame Democrats and left-liberals for the plight of blacks), on foreign policy (some liberals actually like American military interventionism as much as the neocons), on Islam (OK, except for a few bad Abduls) or on immigration (a net positive).
Jason Riley should try never having been invited in the first place to speak to those campus “conservatives.”
I guess he could argue the marginalized Old Right is just not as smart as he and his neocon buddies. Paul Gottfried’s learned scholarship on American conservatism exposes the neocons as not very smart at all.
Conservatives are so like liberals in their parenting philosophy. They see a small kid in a sombrero swearing at Donald Trump’s supporters—and they shout exploitation. Poor little vipers are being exploited by their parents.
Crap. And hand me a brown bag.
Feral kids are foul, be they liberal, conservative, free-range kids or swearing sods in Sombreros. A good hiding in public would cure all. And I haven’t even commented on the great citizens these crappy kids will grow up to make. What an intake.
Malia Obama is a beautiful girl, but she’s not going to Harvard because of her superior smarts—not that the media celebrating her plans have asked about her SAT scores. Malia’s pedigree got her into Harvard. Her path in life will be strewn with rose petals because of her parents and her status as First Child.
Malia needn’t worry. Media didn’t ask for the academic scores of her parents; they won’t ask for hers.
Still, kids are propagandized before they turn 18 and well after. So I don’t know that repealing this liberty sundering amendment would help reverse the erosion of individual rights toward which the youth vote contributes.
