University of Texas Protest

Hard to tell where to post this absurdity. Wonder how they would fare against a mass shooter/ murderer:

18-22 year olds + a number of professors.

Products of the education system.

Thankfully not all share such ridiculous sentiments; but too many do.

I wonder who paid for all of the "toys"...I bet it didn't come out of anyone's pocket. Probably some campus organization or special interest group.

Sad testament to the state of critical thinking skills at institutions of "higher" education.

I guess they don't remember the shooter in the Tower thirty years ago.

That university is a hotbed of leftist liberal progressive ideas and brainwashing. The liberal immigrants all seem to gravitate down there to be near more of their kind in Austin. Texas itself is pretty conservative on the other hand.

Cruz led a campaign in Texas to make sex toys illegal. If successful, these students would be committing a crime protesting something that is legal, with something that isnt.

The prediction that I could make with great confidence, requires language I do not use for such purposes. Don't bring a toy to a gun fight.

What's truly astounding is that so many -smart- people can be so foolish. Not a lot of use giving out the lyrics here where only the choir will read them. <sigh>

UT is just like every other large university. Its controlled by and overrun with liberal dimwits and the city of Austin where its located is a true bastion of liberal idiocy.

And the new right to carry on campus law just eats them up.

And gives me one of the fewer and fewer chuckles I get these days...

So I guess in the case of sexual assault, they want to thrill the attacker, not kill him/her/it.

Fifty years ago. But your point remains equally relevant .. +1911.

From myself on past Forum post:

In the student Union Building (perhaps elsewhere as well), a rumor was circulating that the gunman was on the top floor of the Union Building and was working his way down, shooting people as he went.

No one in the Union Building was armed; no police of any kind were present. People suddenly realised, with at least some shock and horror, how defenseless and desperate they were if the rumor proved true. And the gunshots were audible, even indoors, although I suspect that someone experienced with shooting would have guessed, from the sound, that the shooter was likely further away.

Within about ten minutes of the rumor's circulation, most people inside of the Union Building fled outside, in other directions, with some undoubtedly walking directly into Whitman's line of fire, as that was the direction immediately facing the main entrance/exit of the Union Building in 1966. (if Whitman had been on that side of the Tower at the moment in time, which is something we'll never know).

In retrospect, Whitman was probably shooting in a different direction (four possible directions) when we walked in front of the Tower. We discussed the clearly audible blasts, Dad thought it was probably related to construction in progress at a different building ... not a clue, among us at the time, that there was a man in the Tower shooting at people. Our first knowledge of a serious problem was the rumor I described above.
It is not fun to be unarmed when an evil-minded person is around ... a lesson that has always stayed with me.

Direct from the horse's mouth: (oops, I mean student newspaper writers):

http://www.dailytexanonline.com/2016...carry-protests

In some of the campus newspaper's photos, some of the female students appear exceptionally eager to receive their "toys" ... Hummmm .... Could the "real" motivation have possibly been different from the nominal protest?

UT, Austin, not surprised, disappointing, entertaining, but again not really surprised.

A small group got others to pay attention to them. Not sure how this would play out for recruitment, but it did reinforce why my money and kids have not and will not ever go to UT.

Ahhh, young adults that are educated beyond their intelligence...it seems to take little to engage them in entertainment of some sort. If one of them ended up sexually assaulted and was on video as carrying around an artificial phallus, how would that be argued in court that they victim wasn't "advertising"? It is apparent they do not consider the consequences of their actions much; not surprise for the intellectually "disarticulated" that are coming through the universities these days.

Unfortunately, liberal, anti-gun, ideology is a disease aflicting, to at least some degree, all 50 states and all significant cities, places, etc.

It would be great if we could point to only a few specific places as being infected by the disease, and then isolate those places, but IMHO we deceive ourselves if we think the disease is not present in our own state, city, etc.
