I wasn’t able to write a Newswithviews column this week. But since leftids have stolen our country out from under us and are trying to kill it before we can get it back, I thought this 2019 essay worth revisiting.
Make no mistake about it: theirs is a country-destroying ideology that littered the 20th century with the corpses of the innocent. Leftist governments create poverty, fear, mendacity, crime, and violence.
As we’ll shortly see for ourselves. It’s already happening.
Personally, I can’t think of anything more demeaning, hateful, or wrath-provoking than being forced to say something that I don’t believe. I’m glad they hadn’t yet gotten into this when I was in college.
There are still well-meaning people who think that if only we could have a meaningful dialogue with leftids, we’d come to appreciate each other’s humanity and find ways to resolve our differences. And then we could all go feed the unicorns.
She described the perpetual Portland riots as “peaceful protests”–honest, it only hurts when I laugh–and at the same time blamed President Trump and evil “federal officials” for the whole business. Meanwhile, a lot of the rest of the country wondered why the president didn’t intervene to stop the riots. But the governor wants it both ways.
What exactly did she mean by “eradicate”? Make it against the law to have voted for Donald Trump? That would be an ex post facto law, explicitly forbidden by the Constitution–but how many Democrats–or college graduates–would know that? Or care?
She likes Antifa, though. Gotta give her that.
So let’s have a good old-fashioned chin-wag, Ms. Governor. How much time do we have before you call in your goon squad to eradicate me?
What has gone wrong with our civics, that we wound up having people like this holding office in America?

Fishmouth Community College has announced a plan to revoke all the associate degrees earned by everyone who voted for President Donald Trump in 2020.
“And not only that!” said College President C. Babbington Whoremaster. “We’re also gonna take back everything they ever learned while they were here!”
The debate now focuses on whether anybody ever did learn anything at Fishmouth.
A Personal Note: I triple-dog dare Rutgers University to take back my degree! In fact, I’m kind of offended that they haven’t yet tried to do that. I mean, come on–I supported President Trump with everything I had! How dare they ignore me? Hey, Rutgers, here I am!
Tell you what. If you want my Political Science degree, you can freakin’ well buy it back! And make sure you adjust for inflation: I want the 2021 cost of tuition.
Y’know, that’s a pretty great idea, if we’re ever in a position to do it: force the colleges and universities to refund the money of anyone who’s unsatisfied with what they got by way of higher education. A lot of goods and services come with money-back guarantees; but I don’t think public education could survive it. Do you?
This has the air of a trial balloon. Let the stupid students run it up the flagpole, muse Harvard University bigwigs, and if anyone salutes it, we can take ownership!
So unnamed “students” at Harvard are supposedly circulating a petition to revoke the degrees earned, mostly years ago, by senators, Congressmen, and members of President Donald Trump’s administration. Ooh-ooh! Senator Cruz, we’re gonna revoke that Harvard degree you got 30 years ago! That’ll learn you!
The, um, “petition” says President Trump’s supporters must be punished for “spreading disinformation and mistrust.” Harvard officials have said nothing about it, for or against. They’re waiting to see how it flies.
Here are the facts, kiddies. As collidge students, you don’t deal in facts. But here they are nonetheless.
Fact: The 2020 election featured massive fraud, without which it would have been totally impossible to get Monkey Joe elected. The evidence that this is so is more than abundant.
Fact: The ones spreading lies and scary stories are Democrats and their nooze media sock puppets.
Fact: President Trump sided with the American people against “The Swamp” of corruption in Washington, D.C.–for which our corrupt political class finally destroyed him after spending four whole years trying to overthrow his presidency.
Fact: A college education is not worth the paper it’s printed on anymore.
Studies have been done that show the astonishing degree of conformity in our colleges. And then think about this–Harvard Looniversity has an annual budget of over $40 billion. Billion? Did you say billion? ‘Fraid so.
If America had any instinct for self-preservation at all, we would cut off the public funding of the universities.
But it looks like self-preservation has been “educated” out of us–big-time.
Crowed one of the tinpot tyrants on the council, this is “really good behavior economics!” What the hell is that? Who gave these little Mussolini wannabes any kind of authority over what anybody else wants to eat?
Jabbered another, Berkeley is now “a world leader in healthy living!”
What kind of spineless worms consent to be governed by such fat-heads? Who wants to live in a place where they won’t let you buy a Dr. Pepper?
Sheesh! And I thought Joe Collidge was only joking when he was talking about getting rid of everything.
A professor of politics at Converse College, South Carolina, has kept his job after refusing to take “mandatory diversity training.”
Associate Professor Jeff Poelvoorde called the mandatory indoctrination “an assault to the dignity and intelligence of the professoriate, in fact, an insult to anyone’s intelligence and dignity” (https://www.campusreform.org/?ID=15739).
The college had threatened him with termination if he didn’t take the so-called course; but when he stood up to them, they backed down. They must’ve known they couldn’t possibly win an inevitable lawsuit, and didn’t want to shell out for damages.
Could we have a lot more of this, please! Here’s a brave man who’s shown the way–follow him through the breach. “Diversity training” is garbage that has to be scooped up and thrown away forever.
