Left-wing cook Bill Ayers visited the University of Oregon (of course) last week to brainwash students about the ever-obscure notion that is “social justice,” which is the code phrase for, social-ism. The speech was not free from Ayers’ typical radical ideology he is so well-known for, as he propagated about the end of America and the launching of a new world. He wasn’t too specific about the latter.
Two other individuals, a professor and a graduate student, asserted: “Most of us have in one way or another acknowledged the sovereign authority of the U.S. government – or the state of Oregon– in order to be here tonight, either admission to the university, applying for a job, or just paying the parking meter. We have not, however, asked permission of the [Native Americans] whose ancestral home this is, and to fail to acknowledge that this remains disputed territory would in effect be taking sides, [and] reinforce the erasure of indigenous history and indigenous peoples.”
If this was a sane group of individuals, there would be rolls of laughter. But these people most likely subscribe to such propagandic thoughtlessness. (Side note: they should be asking permission of Elizabeth Warren, because, well, she’s purportedly a “Native American.”)
The economy may be in turmoil, as well as our nation’s fiscal status. So there may be a dose of reality to his argument. And if government bureaucrats continue to spend beyond our means, as well as continuing to elude the skyrocketing debt of entitlements — which, note, Ayers’ subscribes to — then maybe he, quite ironically, has a point.
