Skip to comments.Ivy League crybullies vs. survivor of a Soviet labor camp; guess who needs 'emotional support'?

Itâs hard to tell parody from real life on certain college campuses these days, but Iâm pretty sure this article is serious. The article, from the Brown Daily Herald, discusses how Brown studentsâ emotional and academic well-being is suffering because they are so busy fulfilling their âsocial justice responsibilitiesâ as student activists. (And here I thought that if my parents were paying $60K a year for me to go to school, my first responsibility would be to study!)
What I found especially of interest is that both this and a previous story in the Herald suggest that one incident that took an emotional toll on activists was protesting an appearance on campus by Natan Sharansky and Michael Douglas, who were there to discuss their perspectives on Judaism, Israel and current-day anti-Semitism. Students for Justice in Palestine decided that this would be a dandy occasion to engage in a loud, disruptive anti-Israel protest. An assistant dean was on hand, in part to provide âacademic and emotional supportâ to the protesters, according to the Herald.

I love the term crybullies.
Not sure who invented it.
I actually attended a speech by Natan Sharansky when I was in college back in the 80s. But back then, the Palestinkians would actually attend and ask pointed questions, rather than be obnoxious.
There are some sick puppies on college campuses these days.
Thanks Beave Meister.

I love it as well. According to the Urban Dictionary, the term cry bullies was coined by one Julie Burchill.
71 years ago, American kids about the same age as these were invading Iwo Jima for a month long fight to the death with the Japanese.
I am pretty sure they never worried about hurt feelings from micro-aggressions.
Well at least Bluto did become a senator.
They are not just enforcing a political orthodoxy, they are deliberately cultivating emotional instability.
Most college kids are not involved in this mass hysteria. They are pretty much the potheads on campus and the problem is that the new strains of pot are making 25% of the users actual psychotics.
Sounds like the Ag majors are having the same success with grass as they did in corn and soybeans...
Well that’s the underlying problem. Pot is now AND Huge and Legal business for the first time in this country.
Follow the money.
This mass hysteria on campuses and on the left in general is from more and more people getting psycho from pot.
Good article. Thanks for posting the link.
Ironically, in Russia now, all high school kids are REQUIRED to read Solzhenitsyn works, which give graphic depictions of what life was like in Soviet labor camps. Of course in the US, forget it...which is why Sanders is so popular.
Say what you may about Putin, be he DOES NOT want a repeat of that garbage.
new study published in JAMA Psychiatry.
you must not have read it yet, about this
The evidence against the new breed of pot is overwhelming
