Isn’t it convenient that only days after The Collegian ran a
story about liberal graffiti on campus, the editorial staff has to
get the last word by bringing in a “guest columnist,” who is
obviously a liberal ideologue, to condemn the awful College
Republicans for their “Campus Insanity” campaign?
Kevin Foskin spews the left’s propaganda about the “creative,
(albeit irregular) gestures of self-expression we’re so blessed
with these days.” What a nice spin he puts on it. But I speculate
that if the liberal spin was taken out of his quote, it would sound
more like this. ” I think vandalizing the campus is OK as long as I
agree with the message the vandals are portraying.” Interesting.
But let not your heart be troubled friends, for Mr. Foskin is a
college (adjunct) professor. This grants him the right to
indoctrinate our learning minds with his slanted rhetoric, posing
it as fact.
But people with extreme, comical views are nothing new. Usually
we smile and nod at the crazy, fist-pumping hippie on the street
corner screaming about the latest facts twisted by Democracy Now!
or some other “alternative news source.” But those days are over.
The left in this country has resigned itself to the fact that it
can’t win debates with its “facts,” so it looks for leadership in
those screaming street hippies. But it takes them off the street,
cleans them up, calls them adjunct professors and put them squarely
in the editorial section as “guest columnists.”
