Now, the Young Democrats had every right to stage such a demonstration. I do not propose to get into a debate over abortion (even though I'm personally very much against it). That's not my point. But I need some clarification:
The answer, of course, to all these questions is "no." I'm sure the WSU YD's have looked on with great envy as the WSU CRs have gained repeated national news exposure. Perhaps this abortion demonstration was an effort on their part to be a little "edgy" or hope for some kind of conflict that would make the news. Please. Supporting abortion on a college campuses these days is about as newsworthy as the sun rising in the east every morning. The Young Democrats were just parroting the same old boring, politically correct party line of the liberal orthodoxy.
Lo, how The Left hath fallen. Once upon a time, they bucked the establishment on college campuses and changed the world. Now, they ARE the establishment. You can't be a radical when you agree with everything that your professors and the administration are espousing. I've said it before: conservatism and individualism are the new counterculture. That's why I would much rather be a College Republican sticking it to The Man than a Young Democrat preaching to the choir.
I can't wait to see what the CRs have planned for this semester.
