As much as we write about them, these videos shouldn't surprise me, you, or that pet hedgehog you've always wanted, anymore. But as the elder here at #LwC, and someone who has been out of school for twenty years (#oldhead) I still have to ask what DAFUQ is happening at colleges? It's like students observed rabies infected baboons and thought "Yeah, we can pull that off."
Because back in the day, though we also looked for excuses to get out of taking tests, we never resorted to taking a classroom hostage. That's a little on the extreme side, no?
Accusing the professor of white supremacy for giving the midterm, then lumping those pesky eggheads who took the midterm in with the KKK professor (as they see it), was adorable. Like Tess Holliday hoping for internet fame, walking a tight rope. Over a vat of hot butter. Despite colleges and universities assigning midterms in the history of forever. But it's white supremacy. Okay.
Berkeley is one of the most leftist colleges in the country. In one of the most leftist cities in the country. In THE most leftist state in country. Any further left and California would drop into the Pacific Ocean. Which, one more earthquake and it may happen. Earthquake or leftist temper tantrum. Both measure high on the Richter scale.
So yeah, let's have a conversation about students who're unable to study for midterms. Seeing a MAGA hat or knowing there's someone in your vicinity who may have a different opinion is causing these little snowflakes PTSD.
Berkeley. It's like storming the shores of Normandy. Except no it isn't.
