Lunacy Rules on Campuses

Remember Art Linkletter’s long-running TV segment “Kids Say the Darndest Things?” Now, academics have supplanted children as America’s most juvenile demographic pool. It’s not knowledge or wisdom that gets imparted on college campuses, but the most vile forms of propaganda and disinformation directed against the United States.

On the one hand, our freedoms provide a cloak of protection for these pedagogues to spew nonsense. But they deserve to be called out and exposed as charlatans when so many of them  jump on the same tired bandwagon, spouting like-minded extremist rhetoric. Take Noam Chomsky, the MIT professor emeritus in linguistics, better known for his endless radical pronouncements. His latest: Colin Powell should be hanged for committing acts of immorality akin to Hitler’s right-hand man, Joachim von Ribbentrop, sentenced to death  in 1946 following the Nuremberg Trials.

Hey, Noam? What’s wrong? No one paying any attention these days so you’ve got to amp up the craziness? There’s a Yiddish term for Chomsky’s specialty: Meshugaas, meaning pure, unadulterated lunacy.
