More On Muhlenberg Moron: His Camera Prevented the Brutality

Oh dear sweet mercy:

And by the way, my camera was a mechanism that probably prevented brutality like happened at New School in December where they weren’t on top of that as much…the black trench coat guy threw me an elbow and I was trying to keep a level head as people were panicking…the rest of the negotiations absolve me…I’m going to post those soon for you to poo poo. NYPD has used violence on protesters in the past. We were lucky NYPD didn’t get in the night before or else you might have been scrubbing our blood off the walls like at Columbia in 1968.

Can I come in from the terrace to consense on this claim?

A commenter also tips this editorial he wrote, which is ten pounds of stupid stuffed in five pound stupid-bags.

At colleges speckled all over our country, young minds are awakening to a startling reality that our parents, or at least their generation, were right, and better off for it. We, on the other hand, are not better off because we did not follow their path of resistance. From the impending financial crisis, to indentured servitude by student debt, to the old men’s War on Terror fought by teens and 20-somethings, to an overwhelming, propagandized society at war for our hearts and minds, we are a generation with subcultures that have ceased to steward social change.

Keffiyehs are sexy, sold at the malls. Peace signs are embroidered next to buttons for presidential candidates of war. Hipsters don’t think it’s hip to talk about militarism like their hippie ancestors. Millions are made from the circle-A for anarchy by marketing executives. Our music is corporate, we consume culture, and we feel obliged to validate a system of oppression for which we are raw materials, by their calendar.

But students have not always been subordinated.

Four decades ago, our parents’ struggle shook the conscience of our society that set precedence for every student struggle since. They were our age; they had no funding, no parental support, no internet, no Facebook, and no cell phones. Yet, they stopped a war, founded universities, championed civil rights, practiced environmentalism, revived feminism, halted nuclear energy expansion, ended apartheid, and desegregated their campuses.

...

I assert that “freedom is participation in power” according to the Greek philosopher Cicero. [sic, and stupid]

...

We have been tokenized on faculty academic committees that are closed to the College community, sought out as insurance against insurrection, [???] subjects of their curriculum power experiment. Even Student Council has been sequestered into predominately a party planning and student club ATM. What happened to defending consent “by all means necessary?”

Um, you took over a cafetorium and, um, taped the "insurrection" on a fucking digital camera, dude.

Get over yourself.
