Revolution for the hell of it.
Hat Tip to Michelle Malkin.
When last we heard from entitlement-mongering college students protesting budget cuts at public universities, they were taking torches to the chancellor’s home at UC Berkeley.
……As I’ve noted before, it’s not right-wing Republicans assaulting police officers, abusing government authority to try and drive out the Marines, waging nationwide war on recruiters, and terrorizing researchers in the name of animal rights. It’s left-wing nutballs who always get a pass from the NYTimes columnists and MSNBC loudmouths who’ve been blaming every violent outburst on the planet on the Tea Party movement.
Today, the social justice mobsters on campuses across the country held a nationwide tantrum over tuition hikes. This is how the Left teaches civil discourse to its intellectual progeny: “Gimme!” “Revolucion!” “Smash Patriarchy!”
At the University of Wisconsin-Madison, they assaulted cops.
Similar stories in California.

University of Wisconsin Madison contains a large number of radical progressives who think violence is great theater. They don’t give a damn about anyone’s right to an education, particularly the poor who have struggled and worked just to get a chance. It is more fun to have the issue to yell about than to plan a fund raising campaign to get private donations. These are a bunch of coddled babies whose parents never grew up.
As far as California is concerned, the State is bankrupt. It has been issuing IOUs rather than paying its bills. It has driven its important businesses and wealth creators to Texas and other Southwest States who actively advertise a lower cost of doing business. The students somehow are so uneducated as to be unable to connect costs to benefits. No wonder, basics lessons in economics are missing in the general education arena.
Protest Shooter has some photos of the lunacy at these protests. Note all of the references to unions, “minority struggle”, war, “racism”, communism, and “workers of the world unite” crap.
Academic intelligentsia has a fatuous sense of entitlement. States, like the Federal government, are now paying the price for overspending and wasteful fiscal stupidity. The result is the rude awakening of cost-cutting measures.
A newsflash for the students: College education is not a guaranteed right, it’s earned. Many of you come from affluent backgrounds; mom and dad pay your way. Folks like me had a Pell Grant and GI Bill that helped with tuition, but it wasn’t enough. I had to work my way through college. I did odd jobs and was employed part time, through the VA Work Study program. Everything I have was earned. Nothing was given to me.
Instead of focusing your energy on working toward your degree and eventualy becoming a productive member of society, you trash the very capitalist system that hires college graduates. You hoist signs with hackneyed slogans and march with a conglomeration of idiots with a variety of bitches, moans, and complaints that have little to do with education. You don’t really give a shit about the sad state of economic affairs.
Wanna change the world? Do something better than immitating a leftover 60’s radical ‘professor’ who fills your skulls with Trotskyite bullshit, and enthralls you with nostalgic stories of taking over the Chancellor’s office during anti-Vietnam war protests.
You must think after you graduate, you’re going to support yourselves by being professional anti-capitalist agitators.
I think it’s a safe bet that it doesn’t pay as well as getting a real job.
Those of you who have the sense to relate to the real world, will soon find that your greatest frustration will be the intrusion of a run-away government that will take you up on your advocacy of Obama’s “spread the wealth” socialism.
Good luck with that.
