On the left, literally, is Steve Sebelius. On the right, literally, is Larry Elder. It’s a wonder the page doesn’t spontaneously combust.
Elder writes about the Boston Marathon bombing suspects and how they became radicalized:
What about the “education,” especially in the social sciences, that Dzhokhar likely received in high school and college? Did the usual left-wing professors, who dominate in number and influence on nearly all of America’s college campuses, teach his courses? Did his instructors stress America’s imperfections and teach that racism, sexism and homophobia remain major problems in America, that America is an imperial power that dominates the world, that “Bush lied, people died” on the Iraq War, that Abu Ghraib represents our American “military culture of abuse,” which explains why so many foreigners “legitimately hate America,” etc.?
How many in-class discussions and dorm bull sessions — conducted among similarly educated and like-minded students sitting beneath wall posters of Che Guevara — turned into a chorus of attacks against American “imperialism”?
Sebelius writes about mental patients being “dumped” via bus on other states:
The sad reality is, Las Vegas can be a cold, hard town. …
Whether it’s drunk club-goers tossed onto the casino floor when their credit runs out, good-faith homeowners tossed out of underwater houses when their money runs out or mentally ill people tossed onto buses when their sanity runs out, Las Vegas can be the harshest city in America.
His piece concludes:
But the cold heart of the city hasn’t changed. The climate that made it possible, even inevitable, remains. And that’s the final outrage.
The left is never loath to loathe, whether it is their nation or their city.
