College Students Not Learning


For John, BLUFNothing good will come of this kind of thinking.  Nothing to see here; just move along.



From Reporter Bobby Soave, of The Daily Beast, "College Students Say Remembering 9/11 Is Offensive to Muslims".  The sub-headline is "How a proposed moment of silence to honor 9/11 victims became the latest victim of the would-be despots of America’s campuses."

And the lede:

The everything-is-offensive brand of campus activism has struck a new low:  Students at the University of Minnesota killed a proposed moment of silence for 9/11 victims due to concerns—insulting, childish concerns—that Muslim students would be offended.
So, it looks like the war is basically over, and the West—Western Civilization—has lost.  We seem to be moving to "submission".

But, as this rolls on, one wonders what these students are learning in college.  Heck, what did they learn in High School?

But, this is not new.  This is something from 2006.  From World Net Daily, a report on the University of Washington student senate which...

...rejected a memorial for alumnus Gregory “Pappy” Boyington of “Black Sheep Squadron” fame amid concerns a military hero who shot down enemy planes was not the right kind of person to represent the school.

  Pappy Boyington's son enuciated the academic law that "All points pro[ficient] are points wasted".  If that is too complicated, think of it this easy.  You only have to do well enough to go on to the next level.  Anything more is just distracting you from other important activities.
