Yesterday at Lewis and Clark Law School in Oregon, feminist Christina Hoff Sommers’ talk was shut down by the Oregon branch of the Future Baristas of America.
You see, they don’t want their university used as a “platform for fascists.”
Because, apparently to these Future Baristas of America, Christina Hoff Sommers is a “known fascist.”
Good grief. It’s amazing that they could spend that much money ostensibly on an “education” and believe that.
And, boy were their arguments well-thought-out and reasonable.

Frankly, I’m surprised that they didn’t include “Do you want foam with that?!” in their chant.
Yes, my friends. These are the Future Baristas of America – mind-numbed children racking up tens of thousands of dollars in student loans all so they can spend their twenties serving half-caff macchiatos to people who have real jobs.
Let’s leave aside the absurdity of claiming that a classical Liberal feminist like Hoff Sommers is a fascist.
What is the point of attending university if you simply refuse to be exposed to intelligent debate?
Anybody else wonder if these Future Baristas of America poisoned the Socratic Method with a cappuccino laced with hemlock?
Keep in mind, this display of childish petulance happened at a friggin’ law school.
There’s a reason why I instructed high school graduates Don’t go to college.
“And what do you get out of it?
“Endless lectures about ‘White Privilege’ and ‘Gender studies.’
“Angry harangues from overpaid professors about the evils of America.
“Honestly, why pay so much money to a college to be abused on a regular basis? If you want to pay for that kind of abuse, go to a dominatrix. It’s cheaper.
“Actually, you can get that kind of sanctimonious browbeating just by spending one evening a week at some vegan restaurant near a college campus. All you have to do is show up in a Make America Great Again hat and order a medium/rare steak and the other patrons and staff will take it from there.
“Unless your lifelong dream is to go into law, medicine, engineering or science, why waste thirty or forty thousand dollars a year in college?
“You can be berated and shamed for free just by going to the comments section of a Leftist website.
“If you want to ‘find yourself’ and ‘figure out what you want to do with your life,’ there are ways to do it that won’t cost you what most people spent on their first home.
“How about getting a job. Any job. You’d develop a work ethic, get some grasp of responsibility, learn how to save and manage money, interact with actual human beings — the benefits are endless.
“I guarantee you, in four years, you will be better positioned for adulthood than your peers who are studying ‘Feminism & Privilege’ or ‘Pan-African Lactose-Intolerant Gay Poets of the Twentieth Century.’
“Colleges lost their usefulness about the same time they stopped respecting individual liberty, freedom of speech and differences of opinion.”
The students who tried to shut down Christina Hoff Sommers are not being educated.
In fact, the only thing they are prepared for after four years of this is possibly landing an assistant manager position at the local Starbucks.
All that money down the drain, all that debt accumulated – and for what?
So they can learn to chant?
Honey, any closed mind can learn to parrot meaningless words shrieked at them by a Gender Studies major.
Is the burdensome debt really worth that?
Or, as I said in my column Don’t go to college:
“If an entire generation of high school graduates gave colleges the big heave-ho, I imagine that not only would the median income of that generation increase, but their collective IQ would as well.
“And for those of you who actually long for the opportunity to be brainwashed and indoctrinated, there’s no need to go into life-long debt to do it.
“Just join a frickin’ cult. They’ll feed you, clothe you, house you, and turn you against your family for a fraction of the cost.”
While I admire and respect Christina Hoff Sommers trying to bring classical education back to these once “institutions of Higher Learning,” I just don’t see the point.
After all, how much critical thinking does one need to be a Future Barista of America?
