Yep. Have to agree with you.
This is part and parcel of the Ivy League mindset. There are some ideas that are too radical for people from the Ivy League to wrap their heads around - ideas that seem so common sense, so obvious that anyone should be able to see them like the sun in a clear midday sky, but the graduates of the Ivy League moron factories get heavily invested in certain mindsets which are considered ‘acceptable.’
The obvious facts then become ‘unacceptable.’
And the unacceptable facts in the middle east - that Islam is an expansionist military doctrine posing as theology, that Moslems fall into two groups (jihadists and silent apologists for the first group) and that they’re seeking to regain what they’ve lost from the 17th century or so... those ideas might be obvious to us, but they will never be spoken aloud by the graduates of the Ivy League schools.
Which is why I didn’t vote for Mittens (and I sure as hell didn’t vote for Obama). I’ve had it with these wishy-washing, RINO Republicans. I’m just washing my hands of them.
Don’t blame the Ivy League for blindness to the threat of Islam: I’m a Penn man (GA&S ‘84, Ph.D. in Mathematics) and see it plain as day.
