Yeah… Massacres are imminent. But… Likely not.
Modern campuses seem a kind of stagnant daycare, where young adults relearn the Toddler Method: Demanding, irrational, prone to crying jags, wildly oversensitive… ignorant.
Our youthful American Taliban, though, are risking eradication of our half-century experiment in soft-Marxism. Its tenets have been institutionalized in our social and administrative functions, which have become more static and oppressive; forsaken are Marxian economic brainstorms, which have proven sorry failures since first out for a test drive in 1917.
Collegiate SJWs have opened up the whole program to ridicule, and that will be its death knell. In the past, when the Right responded with outrage to Lefty forays, the Right was derided. Old fogeys, whitebread morality, politically retarded, whatever.
But now… Trigger warnings? Safe spaces? Microaggressions? What’s next? Pacifiers? Che bibs? Their insipid, infantile demands are congenital punchlines.
Even resiliently dense True “You Mean Haven Monahan WASN’T the Brains Behind UVA’s Crystalmangumnacht?!” Believers are beginning to panic. The whole, 60-year experiment in spiritual corrosion for the common good could collapse in on itself like the rotten old shack it is.

Modern journalism has forgotten Occam’s Razor – a theorum dreamed up by a Medieval monk that advises against complicating your theory. In short, the simplest explanation is usually the correct one.
Maybe someone can see it in this New Y0rker article – I didn’t. It reinforces the case that a lot of tender young vibrant enrichers from Islam tend to go radical because of shabby treatment from Westerners once they immigrate. That’s been THE default position of our deep thinkers for 50+ years now: Whenever something bad happens in the world, it’s fault of racist, hate-filled Western butterflies flapping their wings somewhere in placid Whiteyland.
Of correlations researchers in this study found, one was that most extremists came from French-speaking countries, overwhelmingly from France itself. They go on to cite high-unemployment among Muslims now enriching the Gallic homeland, those ugly state-driven campaigns against public veil-wearing, etc., as factors in this process of alienation, then radicalization.
But isn’t there a simpler factor? France is home to the highest Muslim population in Europe – 6.5 million. That’s almost 10 percent of the country’s ENTIRE population.
‘Course that fact, if endorsed (or even mentioned), would indicate encouraging immigration from the Land of the Prophet might not be such a grand idea – in spite of plaintive squeals by soft-hearted (and -headed?) open-borders fans.
Can’t have that… But why? Why not even bring up the possibility for debate?
Odd this was run the same week as Obama’s HUD announced it’s boosting housing vouchers to allow urban poor to rent in ever-more-upscale suburbs. This is “magic dirt” theory of integration – transform forever-struggling, mostly non-white inner-city folk into prosperous doctors, lawyers and aeronautical engineers by moving them to places where those professions dwell.
Oddly, it also will empty fashionable but presently ‘problematic’ urban areas so they can be gentrified, revived, and whitened into upscale – and quite high-rent – party keeps for Millennial affluees. Winners: Those ready to rennovate ghettos into boutique neighborhoods. Losers: Those out in the ‘burbs now, who’ve sunk their life savings into that magic dirt.
We know media always will have the back of these urban pioneers, since both developers and asphalt settlers are wealthiest faction in this social-justice/financial killing equation.
Since it’s the most famous test-tube in an earlier incarnation of this rather destructive social experiment, we might as well say these tracts will be “Fergusoned”.
