Poor Little Millennials Need Psychological Counseling after Chalk "Threats"?

Emory University is actually looking for the perpetrators guilty of the hate crime of writing "Trump 2016" around campus...in chalk!

Oh...and they're offering the poor wittle twaumatized students psychological counseling to assuage their feaw and twembling.

Just think, most of these babies can actually vote in the upcoming election. Scary thought isn't it?




It's clear that one of the important gifts for millennials on college campuses these days is smelling salts to be used when they feel threatened by any ideas that differ from their own or hurt their wittle feelings. As for college administrators...please, just close the campus. Parents who waste their money sending kids to Emory need a brain transplant! And any alumni who write checks to these enablers of permanent infancy, also need to get their heads examined.

But I'm not surprised. When you have young people in your own extended family who have drunk the kool-ade and sound like little echoes of mindless liberalism, you begin to wonder if any young people among the millennials (those born between the early 1980s and early 2000s) can think for themselves -- or can think at all for that matter.

I havn't totally lost hope, because I have some intelligent college-aged grandchildren who act like adults. We don't always agree, but we can discuss issues and engage in Socratic dialogue without either side retreating to the pacifier and "snuggie blankie."

And so, I am always on the lookout for young people (like the little gal in the video below) using technology, not to update their profile pictures every five minutes, and send out name-calling tweets, but to actually express ideas. If you have a favorite young person posting intelligent commentary on YouTube, how about posting a link in the comments section.

This kind of stuff seems just nonsensical to me. I graduated college in 1983. The only thing that I recall that really agitated us was the Iranian hostage taking and burning of the US consulate. I had a Iranian Kurd friend at the time and the stories he told me about Islam was quite shocking to me. Medieval even.

Fast forward to now, my older son has had several encounters with the PC culture at the community college. My son is traditionally minded and raised to the catechism. I must say that when encountered bigotry directed at those who believe in traditional marriage and pro life, his teachers and admin allowed him to express himself. His only problem was expressing himself without getting angry. Once he could respond with facts with out emotion, he became a much better advocate and gained alot of confidence in himself. As I always told him and quoting St Peter that we must always be prepared to give reasons for our beliefs and do so in a calm and even temper. Sometimes Dad needs to follow that advice himself.

Is this the raw material that our defense must be built upon? I don't know whether to laugh or cry when I hear political candidates talking tough about how we will deal with Russia and China.
