‘Whiny Students Demand Warning Labels on Literary Classics’ (2015)

See the source image

Every now and then I wonder if the d*****bags running our colleges and universities are trying on purpose to turn their students into completely useless wastes of space. Like, for instance, when they encourage the little bozos to be afraid of what they might read in The Great Gatsby.

“Warning! This literary classic contains depictions of activities other than shaping Play-Doh with cookie cutters and babbling about how to Save The Planet. Reader discretion is advised. If triggered into trauma, contact emergency services.”

Yeah–I think they’re doing it on purpose.

    How utterly pathetic. When I was a kid, I read every book in our public library in the little town where I grew up. The librarian had to order a large
    box of books from the capitol city so I would have enough to get me through the summer. Nobody worried about what I read, and I made my own decisions about what was acceptable and what was not. Believe it or not, I have never had to be interred in a mental institution –yet, anyway.

    We were required to read “The Great Gatsby” in high school, and now it is too advanced for college students? Look at the filth of language, picture, and videos plaguing the social media. Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan used to say back in the 1980’s that America was “defining deviancy down.” I wonder what he would think of today’s excuse for culture? Thanks be to God Who raises up a standard against the flood of unrightousness. Today that is the conservative Christians in this country that actually get out and vote. Without them, no President Donald Trump.
