That college students are “liberal” and “left wing” is a hackneyed cliché. Truth is, as an American demographic they haven’t shown this level of enthusiasm for anything national security-related since 9/11, nor have they effectively demonstrated against the wars that concern their contemporaries the most, nor the security policies we’re incessantly told have clouded and colored their formative years. Perhaps none of this should come as a surprise, that this generation, conditioned not to question government but to “embrace unity,” to “love America” unconditionally in the wake of the terrorist attacks, would pour into the streets behaving exactly how the White House and military would have wanted—with unrestrained, unreconstructed nationalism—in response to this “defining moment” on May 1.
Makes one think how “spontaneous” it was from the start. And if it all seems terribly shallow, consider the “theme song” that reportedly emerged shortly after the celebrations began: “Party in the U.S.A” by Miley Cyrus, a.k.a Hannah Montana.
Seeing that TIME magazine was reporting this earlier in the week opposite a story entitled, “Everyone Poops: How Do Astronauts Go to the Bathroom in Space?” we shouldn’t expect anything more circumspect or less immature. But TIME is the mainstream, and like the Today Show, CNN, FOX and all manner of other media bees in the corporate hive, they shaped the narrative around the “American Spring” of exalted college youth post-Osama as though there was no other way a young person would react.What a bunch of crap -- the excuses the media offered, not the column. This was the most orchestrated event. There was nothing genuine or honest about it.
And these 'tough' boys? Miley Cyrus? Really?
What? They misplaced their flash drives with the soundtrack to "Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue"?
They made themselves look so stupid. They didn't look tough. They didn't look smart.
They looked like a bunch of spoiled little brats who thought Miley Cyrus equaled "bad ass." How pathetic.
They couldn't even handle Dirty Harry, that's how pathetic they are.
