So at Palm Beach State College last week, an administrator kicked the conservative group Young Americans for Freedom out of some event.
The ejector, Olivia Morris-Ford, claims she didn't recall giving the scamps permission to be there. But the group claims Olivia had, and there's evidence: an e-mail from student Christina Beattie to Olivia and Beattie's phone log showing the call from Olivia.
So it looks like Ms. Morris-Ford should lady up and tell the truth, but something tells me she won't.
That's not quite the reaction I'd expect from someone working at a place where open-mindedness trumps oxygen.
Here's the real point: That lady knew she could bully those kids because her rudeness fell into the "No worries, they're conservatives!" category. If they were Vegan Nudists for Obama, she would have been fine. But she didn't like their views, so she kicked 'em out, and she got away with it.
Anyway, I'm not into student groups, unless they involve a Twister mat and a jar of Nivea. It's a leftover reflex from my time at Berkeley, where each day I endured gauntlets of sloppy card tables manned by angry progressives with their hacky sacks and halitosis.
But no one kicked them out, because their pamphlets never questioned left-wing lunacy. I'm sure if they did, someone like Olivia Morris-Ford would call security.
After all, there is only so much speaking truth to power the left can take... i.e. none.
And if you disagree with me, you're a racist, homophobic, Islamophobic Necrophobe.
