The Week That Perished

LAW STUDENT SHOUTS “FUCK THE LAW!”
It has become increasingly evident that if you don’t believe that communism is the only thing that will save transgender lesbian midget otherkin from the evil predations of the white-male-capitalist industrial complex, you are not welcome to speak on any college campus in the Anglosphere.

Josh Blackman—who, it must be noted, is not a black man—recently attempted to give a speech about free speech at CUNY Law. As we’ve all recently been informed, anyone who says they’re in favor of “free speech” is merely a white supremacist who enjoys squashing anyone different from him like a vintner enjoys trampling upon helpless and dark-colored grapes.

Blackman says he was screamed at, called a “white supremacist,” told he was “not welcome,” and accused of peddling “hate speech”—all for the crime of attempting to give a speech about free speech.

At one point during the torrent of anti-free-speech speech, one law student shouted “FUCK THE LAW!” at Blackman, which is an odd sentiment for a law student to express. Then again, we live in a country where education is no longer about education and journalism is no longer about journalism, so none of us should be surprised.

STUDY: COMMUNISM BAD FOR YOU
A recent analysis “of 44 countries across Europe and Asia” published in the journal Royal Society Open Science examined these nations’ UN Human Development Index scores, which tally things such as life expectancy at birth, average years of education, and per-capita income. According to The Times, the study concluded that:

…the single strongest predictor for a country’s health, and the second strongest for its wealth after the vicissitudes of geography, turned out to be whether its rulers had embraced the doctrines of Marxism-Leninism.

In nations that had formerly swallowed (or been force-fed) Marx’s giant bologna sandwich, things such as overall health, income, and life expectancy were poorer.

But you already knew that. It’s time for the rest of the world to learn it before they have to learn it again the hard way.

MILLENNIALS HAVEN’T GOTTEN THE MEMO ABOUT THE HOLOCAUST
In news that should alarm anyone who cares about anything, a recent study published on Israel’s Holocaust Remembrance Day finds that 22 percent of US millennials “haven’t heard of, or aren’t sure if they’ve heard of, the Holocaust.”

Do these people never watch TV or go to the movies?

A full two-fifths of millennials “believe two million Jews or fewer were killed during the Holocaust.”

According to CBS News, “Six million Jews were killed in World War II by Nazi Germany and its accomplices,” although it must be noted for the sake of journalistic honesty that CBS neglected to attribute a source to that figure.

Speaking of not citing sources, we would speculate that 99% to 100% of all Americans have heard of Adolf Hitler, so some people might want to rethink their propaganda strategies.
