College students like protesting, especially at American. Karl Rove speaks, and students block him from his car and try to arrest him. The Westboro nutcases protest AU, and students organize a gay pride counter-protest. Economic conservatives hold a convention downtown, and at least one AU Dem is caught on camera blocking a woman in a wheelchair from leaving the convention center.
This is what democracy looks like? Really? More like this is what the AU Dems look like.
I’m not trying to pick a fight here, so I won’t name the person, but let’s just say he isn’t some low-level AU Dems eboard member. No, he’s much more important, and influential, than that, so when he joins up with the “Occupy D.C.” crowd to intimidate attendees of an Americans for Prosperity event, people should be wondering if the AU Dems are capable of taking part in a civil discussion of the issues.
It will be interesting to see AU Students for Liberty debate the AU Dems at an event Tuesday on campus (more info can be found here). The Dems are serious about protesting, but are they serious about debating? And will the Dems disavow their members who are taking part in a movement with a track record of violence, disease, and antisemitism?
Perhaps that’s a loaded question, but the “Occupy” movement is a loaded movement. Loaded with bullshit.
