Columbia University: One eye open

My son graduated from Columbia University in 2001.  I am proud of his achievement, but I am embarrassed that he went to such a monolithically entitled progressive school. 

Columbia sees things only its own way.  It's one eye is glued on liberalism.

Instead of the university being embarrassed by its simple-minded left-wing agenda, it is proud of its Marxist ideology.  The students mistake their own communist proclivities for some deranged form of humanism. 

The faculty doesn't believe in tough love.  There is no love when values are ignored.  The school is a hotbed of weakness, like Obama in Mom jeans.

I know that if I hopped a subway to Columbia and asked any of the students a political question, I would get the same type of liberal clichéd response.  The students believe in diversity but are consistently progressive.

Imagine: fifty thousand dollars a year in tuition to produce little miniature monolithic brains.  Imagine that these carbon copies of each other arrogantly think that they are smart. No wonder colleges have become breeding grounds of academic dullness and bigotry.

Prestige students celebrate racial diversity, but they don't pursue mental diversity.  They are intellectually clever, but they are emotionally obtuse and can't see the forest for the trees in their progressive concrete jungles.

If I asked them what they thought of George Bush, they would say that he was a stupid, rigid president despite the fact that he was led into the Iraq War by misinformation and that almost all the senators agreed on the war.

They would say that Bush is inarticulate, as if linguistic skills had more to do with leadership than deception.  Witness Obama's lies.  He borrowed speeches from writers to deceive us and to uphold his single-minded views.

The students would forget that Iraq was just after 9/11 and that we were in a bit of a panic.  More civilian deaths than military deaths in Pearl Harbor – why shouldn't we be panicked?  Perhaps our reaction was partially mediated by the horrors of those murders.

Columbia students are too Obamanesque to remember that Bush brilliantly, against harsh disapproval, used the surge to turn Iraq into a democracy.

These Ivy League students would say that Obama is an enlightened, progressive president who got our troops out of Iraq.  They wouldn't mention that his precipitous withdrawal led to the rise of ISIS.  Heads rolling around like bowling balls in the desert. 

The Columbia sophomores would say that Obama lowered the unemployment rate without mentioning that millions of people dropped out of the work force and that he raised our debt to an untenable eighteen trillion dollars. 

They'd say that Obama helped race relations even though they have been the worst and angriest since segregation – Ferguson, Baltimore, Black Lives Matter, and cop killings.  Furthermore, instead of helping his black voters, he has presided in a way that lowered most of their incomes.

They would say that Obama improved family relationships even though single-mother parenthood has exploded and same sex-marriage has arrived as a joke alternative.

If these are the stupid, repetitive students that come out of Columbia, maybe the radicals in the sixties who tried to take over the administration building were right.  I hated them, but maybe they should have burned the university down.

Fortunately, my son had the brains to not be totally corrupted by Columbia.  The current proof of how bad it is there is that Obama wants to return after his failed presidency to sop up its infected attitude.

Obama has never revealed his grades from Columbia.  The future will give him an F for his eight years as president.
