Though blogging has been light, I would be remiss if I did not note that the University of Michigan has yet again beclowned itself – this time by canceling and then rescheduling the campus showing of “American Sniper.” The episode has all of the classic elements of liberal intolerance – the victim group demanding censorship of something it doesn’t like, the Administration immediately caving in, then partially reversing itself, and – under national ridicule – reversing itself completely. One of the reasons why legislatures across the country are cutting higher education budgets is that there is no clear benefit to funding these open-air insane asylums. The professors and administrators are uniformly leftist and hostile to what used to be called mainstream American society. Given the choice between hiking taxes or telling the universities to get bent, the state legislatures are making the easy choice. Why do these decaying institutions need more tax dollars to teach young adults how to complain and demand special treatment? As an extra bonus, St. Jim of Harbaugh took time out of his busy schedule of not supporting charity to tweet in support of showing the film. This did two things: 1. It got his name in the papers, and 2. It demonstrated that he has no problem with shooting his mouth off about his employer. It is not difficult to imagine this habit may become problematic for him in the future when the issue is not so clearly defined.
