Another day, another student protest against a conservative MP on campus. But in calling for the lecture to be shut down, Mr Bruffey really let the cat out of the bag: the student left has come to represent all that its forbears fought against. To quote: ‘It is the view of President Billy Bruffey, and the SRC that this lecture will cause UNSW students to feel victimised and isolated, and that Mr Andrews’ views do not conform with those of the University or its students.’
Wow. It’s a fierce (read: flaccid) two punch combo: this lecture can’t go ahead, firstly because it will hurt our feelings, and secondly (and even more astonishingly) because your views aren’t conformist enough. Who would have thought – the future political leaders of the left explicitly demanding that everyone conform with the university’s alleged majority view?
Thus lie the smoking ruins of a once proud political movement. Gone are the days of radical, fearless (often violent) student nonconformism, bucking social mores, sticking it to the man, overthrowing the hegemony, bringing on the revolution and all the rest. Today, the mantra is the opposite: conform, obey, toe the line, don’t ask why, just do it – and if you don’t, I’m going to cry and then you’ll be sorry (because I’m special and delicate and I don’t like it when the world I live in makes me feel uncomfortable).
And they still tell us that the world is dangerously warming?
SHOCK CLAIM: World is on brink of 50 year ICE AGE and BRITAIN will bear the brunt
BRITAIN faces DECADES of savage winters driven by freak changes in global ocean conditions and a weakening of the sun.
Crippling blizzards, snowstorms and sub-zero temperatures threaten a yearly dose of Arctic misery for the next FIFTY YEARS at least – and possibly decades more.
Climate experts warn a rare pattern of water cooling in the north Atlantic will trigger a chain reaction of events leading to a “fully-blown ice age”.
And despite the attempt by almost the entire US media to bring him down, Donald Trump continues to ride high. And despite all attempts to bring her down, Hillary Clinton still looks set to be the Democratic presidential candidate. So how would they do head-to-head?
The latest 2016 presidential poll has Donald Trump destroying Hitlery Clinton in a head-to-head matchup, 375 electoral votes to Hitlery’s 163. That is an astonishing 70% to 30%, and is very good news if you are a Donald Trump supporter…. and I am!
Based on an average of the RCP (Real Clear Politics) polling data from all the states and all the “head to head” matchups between Donald Trump (by far the winner of the GOP) and Hillary Clinton (The winner of the Democratic Party) shows bad news for the Democrats.
Clinton is losing handily in all the swing states, and is even losing Democrat strongholds of Maryland, Connecticut, and Oregon.
