Protestors, take a deep breath

Maybe put on a little Floyd, like this classic from Dark Side of the Moon: “Breathe“.

Instead of “I can’t breathe,” how about you just breathe and “choose your own ground”.

Then get a life, because you are screwing up everyone else’s. Enough is enough, you made your point. Well, not really but you did make a mess.

That’s right, in the name of making your grievance, much of the country is outraged by your grief. Your roadblocks and your “peaceful” riots don’t quench your thirst for action. But this you call social justice.

Others are collateral damage to your demands, hostages to your civil rights mantra. Your right is to inconvenience everyone else. Your right is hijacking anyone else’s. Protestors of abuse creating victims everywhere you go, while claiming to be victims.

So sit down, take another breath and listen to “Us and Them“:

Down and out
It can’t be helped but there’s a lot of it about.
With, without.
And who’ll deny it’s what the fighting’s all about?

Still other people will say:

“Out of the way, it’s a busy day
I’ve got things on my mind.”

But we have rights, too, though they must be second to yours. Ours are contingent on your rights to grievance, deeming us all victims of your relevance.

It’s just another brick in the wall, isn’t it? Just another march of scorn to warn us of your pending doom. The rest of us have to pay for your say, it must be the social justice way.

Ivy Leagues: Activism is US

All about feelings: Ivy League law students now too ‘traumatized’ over Ferguson to take exams

By Jennifer Harper – The Washington Times – Wednesday, December 10, 2014

It is a new educational phenomenon: Ivy League law students at three major universities – Columbia, Harvard and Georgetown University – are now exempt from taking final exams if they feel “traumatized” by the grand jury decisions made in Ferguson and New York City. The students are also being offered counseling if they need it.

A few professors with impressive credentials now have a few questions.

“The decision to allow students selectively to postpone exams as a result of emotional upset over the Ferguson and Garner grand jury decisions shows, once again, how far law schools have strayed from their mission. Few if any of the students complaining talk about the evidence, the forensics, the law that might have justified the grand jury rulings. Instead, it’s all about them and their emotions. Are we training students to think and act as lawyers, or emotional activists?” asks William Jacobson, professor of law, Cornell University Law School and a Harvard Law alumnus himself. [Read more>]

Okay the facts are in and survey says, let’s cut them a break for protest-grand jury-anxiety. Maybe this can be a new disease? Though the disease is actually in the Ivy Leagues, and seems to be highly contagious.

Here is my conclusion I have been dying to get off my chest. There has been a lot of hand wringing and outrage about this phenomena. But why, why should it surprise anyone? People wonder why?

The reason or motive is likely the key. They do it to encourage student participation in protests. Doubt that? Well, we’ve already seen public school students participating, with their teachers. Even school districts’ buses have been used to shuttle the protestors to protests. (the first time one of these is in an “accident” there will be big trouble)

Field trips to protests and rallies are now almost a staple.(Move over ‘pep rallies’– its the Democracy, stupid.) Remember Wisconsin? It’s better than a museum visit, and kids just love them. How good does it look to have children/youth in on the protest action? It lends academic legitimacy.

Further doubt the incorporated, shall we say indoctrinated, activism on campuses available on demand? I’ve already chronicled the anti-Semitism activity encouraged on campuses. They have summer camps teaching the finer trade to ambitious academics — on organizing BDS movements and protests — for export to college campuses across the country. You too can be a radical. They are sponsored by the usual cast. Maybe they can get pre-schools and Head Starts in on the action by next year? Sky’s the limit.

So I ask why should this pattern surprise anyone? It is not-so-subtle encouragement.

Feel the love….or in their case, feel the hate.
