There are a lot of things you can buy for $37,000. At DePaul University in addition to a years education it buys you protection from the dangers of chalk:

DePaul University will no longer allow students to chalk political messages on the sidewalks of its campus because of the “offensive, hurtful, and divisive” nature of pro-Trump chalking found on campus last week.

The bad news is the continued regression to 16th century values were Royal censors who decided what things could be expressed but the good news is this stuff makes Jim Treacher’s job at the Daily Caller so much easier.

Yet, as loathsome as I find Trump and his lickspittle apologists, I can’t help but laugh at the college students who run for their safe spaces at the mere sight of the man’s name.

It’s why Professor Glenn Reynolds says this concerning Trump:

It’s hilarious, isn’t it. And if he’s the nominee, I’ll vote for him, partly for this very reason.

I question the wisdom of paying a university $35K to protect people from chalk. Perhaps we should be seeing more of those empty dorms Glenn was talking about.

Closing thought, If you wonder why some of us thought the culture wars were worth fighting, now you know.

At Israeli Cool (Via Elder of ziyon) Ryan Bellerose tells the truth about the consequences of supporting the arabs over Israel for leftists there:

He starts by acknowledging the short term reasons for doing so:

Now if one is short-sighted, it is rather obvious that one would choose the Arabs. They have Arab oil money behind them, they have the “cool” leftists behind them

However if you are actually living in Israel here is the bottom line for such a person if the arabs actually won. If you are a woman

First, I hope you didn’t like those human rights you got so used to, because you won’t get to keep those. That whole equal rights for everyone thing? Not so much. If you are a woman, your rights are roughly equal to half that of a man. You won’t be able to leave the house without supervision and if you are lucky enough to get raped, you better hope there is a witness besides yourself or you will likely have insult to injury and be stoned – and not stoned in a good way.

If you are Gay:

Don’t worry, as long as nobody finds out you should be fine. If they do, I hope you are OK with being thrown off a roof. That’s if they don’t hang you by a crane.

If you are a Christian, even a nominal one

as long as you pay your dhimmi taxes (roughly double) they will only ask that you NEVER TALK ABOUT YOUR RELIGION IN PUBLIC AGAIN or carry a bible in public. Upon pain of death by the way.

How about if you’re not a monotheist or a believer of any type:

If you are like me and are a “pagan” Indian who doesn’t follow the bible as your central holy text, don’t worry, you will be given the chance to convert to Islam before they kill you.

As for Human Rights

one need only look at EVERY SINGLE MUSLIM MAJORITY COUNTRY IN THE WORLD. Find me one that isn’t rife with human rights abuses, where religious freedom or even basic human rights are respected.

These are all truths that our friends on the left often forget when they attack Western Civilization without asking the obvious question: What will we replace it with?
