Oh, my dear friends, get out your crying towels and prepare yourselves for a tale of misery and woe. You just can't make this stuff up. Well, you could make it up, but other than Fox News viewers, few would ever believe you.

Some of you might remember my recent article "One Big Circle," about how many conservative groups were little more than well-funded fronts. I wrote about how they are rehashing each others' literature and advertising and being, in effect, elephants walking in a circle tied trunk-to-tail. This was centered around the world premiere of an anti-environmentalism film, "Not Evil Just Wrong."

But now, dear friends, there is another danger even greater than the threatening rage of Al Gore. They want your children! That's right, they want to take your children and indoctrinate them. To steal their free will and turn them into robots. Leftist robots!

Under the Banner STOP LEFTIST ABUSE!

" is designed to provide conservative activists with the resources, networking capabilities, and skills they need to revolutionize the struggle against leftist bias and abuse on college campuses.

Created to give conservatives powerful new weapons in their fight for the hearts and minds of the next generation of citizens, politicians, and members of the media, facilitates the establishment of conservative student networks and supports their development as a powerful voice of activism on their campuses. It makes available new opportunities for groups' interaction with alumni, parents, faculty, and other members of the broader community interested in taking a stand for conservative principles on America's college campuses."

Problem is, when your party is against support for higher education and against expansion of Pell grants, those ideas aren't always popular on campus. So, what do conservative students do to fight their oppression? They whine, cry and bemoan their poor treatment; it's all because the big leftist bogeyman has it in for them.

Here's a list of Leftist Abuses on Campus:

"Large numbers of courses presented that explicitly in their catalog descriptions push leftist ideology, but no balance of conservative principles offered in the curriculum."

"Faculty who express in class blatant contempt of conservative ideas.

"Assignment by faculty of one-sided textbooks and readings which systematically push leftist ideas and denigrate or ignore conservative ideas.

"Compulsory freshman orientation programs and 'sensitivity training' designed by leftists to undermine traditional values.

"Mandatory seminars for students on how to have 'safe sex' with little or no mention of the possibility or merits of abstinence or marriage.

"Enforced diversity in every area except for the adherence to or the teaching of conservative principles."

They are whining that colleges ought to reinforce what they already believe because they came to college because they already know what they wanted to learn. If the college challenges those beliefs, they are abusing them. Or they picked the wrong college. Auburn University, for instance, is the home of the Von Mieses institute; a larger collection of conservative nuts balls is hard to find. Have conservative beliefs? Go to a conservative school!

As for "sensitivity training," it wasn't created out of thin air. It was a response to little cretins who had never been away from home before and didn't know how to behave around big people.

I who am I? Born at the pinnacle of American prosperity to parents raised during the last great depression. I was the youngest child of the youngest children born almost between the generations and that in fact clouds and obscures who it is that I (more...)
