I am always amazed and disgusted to see the radicals of the 60s popping up as some kind of honorable citizen in 2011, they are not, they never were, they never will be Radicals On Parade.
The Columbia post notes that Piven herself confirmed that she is the one in the picture.
Hereâ€™s a little bit of Wikipedia history on the Columbia protests:
Columbia suffered quite a bit in the aftermath of the student protest. Applications, endowments, and grants for the university declined significantly in the following years. â€œIt took at least 20 years to fully recover.â€ The protests left Columbia in a bad spot financially as many potential students chose to attend other universities and some alumni refused to donate any more to the school. Many believe that protest efforts at Columbia were also responsible for pushing higher education further toward the liberal left. These critics, such as Allan Bloom, a University of Chicago professor, believed, â€œAmerican universities were no longer places of intellectual and academic debate, but rather places of â€˜political correctnessâ€™ and liberalism.â€
That Americans put up with these clowns in the 60s says more about their fear then it does about the times. Americans had never been privy to violence as a means of forcing the government to bend to the will of the radicals. They had always assumed the ballot box answered any problems they had with politicians. It has been a long and torturous 5 decades that these hypocrites, who live quite handsomely off of this free market Country, have had the stage to drag this Country down.Â It has been long enough. It will be Conservatives of this generation, and the next, who will peel back the layers of leftism which is ingrained in our local and state governments, due to this progressive infiltration.Â We will seek them out and remove them. Personally, I have not fought so hard politically as I have in the past 7 years of my life and will until the day I die.Â As an American, it is my job to battle these radical forces that seek to “change” this wonderful Country.
