I earned my degrees from one of the most liberal colleges in the country. When I tell people who understand my conservative bent, they almost always give me a sympathetic look and offer some variation of, “You poor bastard.”
It wasn’t so bad, really. I was constantly surrounded by those who did not only view my viewpoints as wrong, but viewpoints that should be banned from being offered.
Like a knife sharpening against an unyielding stone, I learned the tricks and trades of the modern leftist. Unwilling to confront on a basis of fact, the modern leftist often relies upon theatrics and feigned moral indignation to silence political opponents. Argue facts and logic and one can simply watch as the left destroys their own argument with hysterics.
The left has become known for such theatrics. Recently, a woman ran a marathon while allowing her period blood to flow freely down her leg. Another used her period blood to paint a picture of Donald Trump. Both were, supposedly, acts dedicated to promoting equality… or something.
Recently, women even took to Twitter to show that they had urinated on themselves to promote equality. It turned out to be a hoax to show how ridiculous these crusaders have become.
Now, as Texas universities are set to allow concealed carriers onto campuses, those who oppose such freedom are making their voices heard.
With rational discussion? Of course not! With dildos, of course…
Yes, you read that right.
Students at the University of Texas at Austin are protesting the new provision by open-carrying sex toys to allegedly highlight the fact that men and women can be on campus with guns, but cannot wave dildos around.
Organizer Jessica Jin claims that it is absurd that licensed carriers will, starting next August, be allowed to have weapons on campus, but that students are forbidden from waving sex toys around in violation of obscenity rules.
The Facebook event page for “Campus (DILDO) Carry” says these bored activists will be “strapping gigantic swinging dildos to our backpacks” on the first day of class when the new concealed carry rules come into effect.
The natural response to Jin’s ridiculous “activism” might be to point-out a simple fact: guns save lives. Dildos do not.
Still Jin insists that the two issues are linked:
“Some shootings in this past year can even be traced straight back to sexual repression,” she says. “Dildos and guns are in it together for the long haul.”
Though Jin and others may not like that they will soon be surrounded by people with guns, the fact is that in Texas, they are likely already surrounded by people with guns.
Millions of Americans have their concealed carry permits. Go to a Starbucks, go to a restaurant, go to a movie theater; there will, in all likelihood, be people with guns there.
Have you seen me in the past decade? If so, then you have been in the presence of a firearm.
The point is that changing the law to allow people to carry onto campus does nothing to change the fact that people already do. Further, it highlights a simple fact for those who wish to conduct a mass killing on campus: choose your target location wisely because this one can fight back.
