I’m not proud of this, but it is true – I am becoming more disgusted by, and therefore angrier at, the American left with each passing day. I don’t want to hate them, but there really isn’t a better word for it. The contempt in which I hold these people is boundless. Again, not proud of it, but I’m also not ashamed of it because they’ve earned it. They deserve my contempt, and yours.

I do have to give some people props. It takes a special kind of person to be able to respond to simple, basic questions in a way that doesn’t even come close to answering it. It’s evil, but it’s also a skill most people don’t possess.
If you were the president of a major university preparing for a congressional hearing and a lawyer you were paying told you that, no matter what, do not directly answer any questions about the disgusting campus culture your institution has fostered, you’d probably fire them. At a minimum, a good person would ignore their advice. Good people don’t play those games.
However, the presidents running Harvard, MIT and the University of Pennsylvania went to Capitol Hill this week to testify about the rabid anti-Semitism they’ve fostered on campus and, it turns out, they aren’t willing to talk about it in any serious way.
In one exchange with Congresswoman Elise Stefanik, none of these three diversity hires (be honest, that has to be how they got their jobs) could admit calling for genocide is against their university’s Jewish students constitutes “bullying or harassment” under their school’s codes of conduct. Invite a conservative to campus and it’s open season on you, mis-gender the “woman” at the urinal next to you and you face discipline. Call for wiping out Jews and “context” is needed, according to these people.
Even more hilariously, the president of Harvard, Claudine Gay, said, “Anti-Semitic rhetoric, when it crosses into conduct, it amounts to bullying, harassment, intimidation, that is actionable conduct.” So, as long as you’re only calling for the wiping out of Jews, but don’t actually start killing as many of them as possible, and you’re cool at Harvard. Use the “wrong pronouns” for someone’s mental instability and you’ll face discipline.
Honestly, how Stefanik was able to not swear at any of these witnesses is amazing to me.
Being able to do that is a requirement of their jobs. To cancel conservative speakers invited by students because little progressive Nazis are so fragile they can’t handle them is common – the University of Pennsylvania canceled an event with the former head of ICE because students felt unsafe having someone disagree with them at an event they weren’t obligated to attend. They should have gotten their asses kicked, figuratively or literally, but instead were coddled by the administration.
That’s an administration that can’t say whether or not publicly calling for the extermination of Jews is bullying. Talk about enforcing the laws of our country and you’re a pariah, talk about finishing Hitler’s work and you’re well on your way to a tenured position on campus.
