Yale Overreaction

Yale is banning the use of stage weapons in student theater productions in reaction to the Virginia Tech shootings.  When is the left in this country going to stop these useless, ridiculous rules that serve no other purpose than to let the left feel that they’ve done something?  Who honestly believes that taking guns or swords off a stage at Yale will prevent another such attack?  Needless to say, the Yale students are not impressed.  Says student Sarah Holdren: 

Calling for an end to violence onstage does not solve the world’s suffering: It merely sweeps it under the rug, turning theater — in the words of this very play — into ‘creamy bon-bons’ instead of ‘solid fare’ for a thinking, feeling audience. Here at Yale, sensitivity and political correctness have become censorship in this time of vital need for serious artistic expression.

What Sarah doesn’t realize is that this is business as usual for the left.  They don’t like groups such as National Right to Life, the NRA, and groups of free citizens criticizing them close to an election, so they ban ads 60-days before an election that mentions a candidates name.  They don’t like the foolish comments of a radio talk show host, they put pressure on the network to get him off the air.  They don’t like the rise of talk radio and the new media, they try to reinstate the unfairness doctrine.  The left has always, and continues to censor speech when they don’t agree with it or it offends them.  No wonder they are often referred to as communists.

Why am I not surprised? Maybe soon, they’ll ban knives from the Dining Halls.
