Dear Lord, what is wrong with the Catholic clergy who claim to serve You?

Zitat
The president of DePaul University likens campus race activists that shut down a conservative event to troops who stormed the beaches of Normandy during World War II.

Conservative pundit Milo Yiannopoulos was threatened with violence and hit in the face by a female student during a speaking engagement at the university’s Chicago campus on earlier this week.

A letter issued Wednesday by Rev. Dennis Holtschneider said the students were wrong — yet also very much like Allied Forces who fought and died in France on June 6, 1944.

Yesterday’s speaker was invited to speak at DePaul, and those who interrupted the speech were wrong to do so,” Rev. Holtschneider wrote from Normandy. “I was ashamed for DePaul University when I saw a student rip the microphone from the hands of the conference moderator and wave it in the face of our speaker. […] Here in Normandy, I expected to be moved by the generosity of those who gave their lives on the beaches early on June 6, 1944. I did not expect, however, to be shocked when I realized that most of the soldiers were the same ages as our students today. The rows on rows of white crosses in the American cemetery speak to the selflessness of the human spirit at early adulthood to lay down their lives for a better world. I realize that many of yesterday’s protesters hold similarly noble goals for a more inclusive world for those traditionally held aside by our society.”

Buried in the article was this gem from the college president - attacking not the BLM thugs, but the speaker who had been invited to the college:

Zitat
“Generally, I do not respond to speakers of Mr. Yiannopoulos’ ilk, as I believe they are more entertainers and self-serving provocateurs than the public intellectuals they purport to be,” the university president wrote.” Their shtick is to shock and incite a strong emotional response they can then use to discredit the moral high ground claimed by their opponents. This is unworthy of university discourse, but not unfamiliar across American higher education. There will always be speakers who exploit the differences within our human community to their own benefit, blissfully unconcerned with the damage they leave behind.”



I was so moved and impressed by his well thought out response, that I decided I would take the opportunity to borrow it and (with just a few modifications) use it the next time I respond to an utterance by the Community-Organizer-In-Chief:

Zitat
“Generally, I do not respond to speakers of Mr. Obama's ilk, as I believe they are more entertainers and self-serving provocateurs than the public intellectuals they purport to be,” Rufus T. Firefly wrote.” Their shtick is to shock and incite a strong emotional response they can then use to discredit the moral high ground claimed by their opponents. This is unworthy of public discourse, but not unfamiliar across American politics. There will always be demogogues who exploit the differences within our human community to their own benefit, blissfully unconcerned with the damage they leave behind.”


Clear - concise. If that doesn't fit the boy emperor to a T, I don't know what does.

I hope Milo sticks to his guns and sues DePaul should they fail to refund his money. I would also encourage him to file assault charges against Ward.

We have got to start fighting back against these thugs with every weapon at our disposal.

Wow, they must have been under the same stress as college students taking finals.
