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.

The Last Generation

Zabno, a small town in southern Poland, was a haven for Jewish families until WWII broke out. In this report, we hear the disturbing stories of people who experienced Nazi cruelty first hand and see just how fresh the wounds left by the Final Solution still are.

Although many Jewish people from Zabno were transported to concentration camps such as Belzec, this moving film focuses on those who were left behind — murdered in their own gardens and buried in unmarked graves, and the lucky few that managed to escape. But were they really lucky? Through startling and frank accounts of their experiences, a small group of surviving women recount how they suffered terrible beatings at German hands and watched with horror as their families were taken away to their deaths. H/T Journeyman Pictures
