College Reasoning at the University of Oregon

, Bob Parks, Leave a comment

A little more than a week ago, University of Oregon columnist Jennifer McBride wrote an interesting piece entitled “10 Reasons Not To Kill Bush.” Now I will say to her credit, by Reason 10 she essentially said that killing the president would be a bad thing. I hope her parents are proud of the value they’re getting out of their daughter’s tuition; that she could come to such a logical conclusion!

Now she did imply that her college campus is rather complete with hatred of George W. Bush. Besides parroting the sentiments of their Birkenstock-wearing professors who would never send their students off with only one side of an issue, I again find myself in total dismay at the side that preaches “tolerance” and “inclusion” to the public, yet wish death upon those who disagree with them.

There are so many progressive positions in which one could poke large holes, so it’s only reasonable to note that they’d be so frustrated with the outcomes of recent elections that some publicly want conservatives dead.

In being brief, let’s look at two of their questionable positions:

Democrats were largely on the wrong side of the Civil Rights Act, yet today they seemingly claim its sponsorship. With that, they have to rely on the ignorance of their minion in order to do so with a straight face. Maybe that’s one reason liberals so gravitate to the education profession.

Liberals also believe that all war is wrong and simply by sitting down and talking to the other side, we can all reach a peaceful conclusion. Would be nice and if that were the case, please name me one conflict, ONE, the United Nations has averted through days of well-reasoned dialogue. It’s never happened because peace only occurs when one side beats the other. That’s the pattern; that’s human nature. Like it or not.
