On Friday, students occupying the administration building at Occidental College ejected Breitbart News’ Adelle Nazarian from their “safe space,” saying they felt “threatened” by her presence and referring to her as “an adult in a student-occupied space.”“We’re requesting that you respect the fact that this is a community-owned space by students,” one of the male students said. He said there was “an issue of safety” as a result of Nazarian’s “adult presence,” which supposedly posed a direct threat to the occupying students’ well-being.
Nazarian recorded the incident. The audio is below (language warning).
The episode recalls the classic quote by New Left activist Jack Weinberg, veteran of the UC Berkeley Free Speech Movement of 1964, who told the San Francisco Chronicle: “We have a saying in the movement that we don’t trust anybody over 30.”
Supposed adults, who don't consider themselves adults, feel threatened by the presence of adults. Um, yeah. Even Mel Brooks would not have imagined this, were he writing a parody of the country.
These graduates will be in for a nasty surprise when they try to get a job. Then again, Bernie Sanders is popular with the young and these pansies will vote for someone who promises to steal money from others to fund their laziness.
