America the stupid. Yesterday’s rather popular piece on Yoga Pants highlighted the efforts of fat women to kill the First Amendment. Today’s news of the all-too-common comes from a people and from a place where one would expect it – UC Berkeley:
Left-wing students at the University of California, Berkeley are protesting again. This time, however, these students are calling for “safe spaces” for transgendered people, as well as “spaces of color” at the University (which they already have).
The protesters are also harassing white students trying to study, barring their path across a key bridge while allowing students of color safe passage.
The protest, which began last Friday, blocked Berkeley’s Sather Gate, disrupted studying students in the Student Union, and blocked traffic at the intersection of Telegraph and Bancroft in front of campus.
The gaggle of neo-hippies, queers, commies, and color-mongers also attempted to close the campus bookstore because it allegedly turns a profit. Typical. Whites and capitalists are public enemies number one and three. (I am surprised they left number two alone. Were there no churches to burn?)

This sad story and the blocking of the bridge vaguely recalled to my mind a legend of UGA lore. That of “Pistol Pete,” a backwoods student (white, male, and presumably evil). He attempted to illicitly pass the North Campus Arch. A small group of hecklers and busybodies then set upon him. Guess why they called him “Pistol” Pete? But Athens isn’t Berkeley. Or wasn’t.
I pity the bridge-blocking leftist kids. Maybe they will finally find spaces sufficiently safe from the real world. Maybe they’ll grow up. Perhaps a lobotomist could assist.
In the meantime if you’re a student at Berkeley and you happen to be white, male, straight, Christian, and have an IQ over 70, consider a transfer.
