Mizzou and Paris: Perspective


At the University of Missouri last week, student protesters harassed a photographer who was attempting to document their efforts; they preened and chanted in front of other, more accommodating news cameras; and they brought cowering school administrators to their knees (the university’s president and chancellor tendered resignations) in the face of a threatened walk-out by the university’s football team.

All of this, mind you, was sparked by claims from student radicals that they feel “unsafe” on a campus over which they appear to exercise greater influence than the very administrators hired to run the place.

Also last week, across the Atlantic, radical Islamist terrorists murdered scores of innocent civilians, and injured hundreds more, in a series of coordinated attacks in Paris, France. In the Middle East, Christians are being slaughtered en masse, as are many others who dare impede ISIS’s strategic advance. Such atrocities warrant grave concern, and vigilance. Their victims have known true fear.

Witness the tumult conjured by pampered, childish, student propagandists. And witness the carnage of an evil that we must recognize and confront, for it threatens our way of life as it takes the lives of innocents. The greater concern is manifest.
