    America, Spoiled Children Consider Themselves 'Victims'

    Personally I think that Professor Dershowitz is spot on.....

    Do the students really "feel unsafe"?

    "They're lying," says Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz in my newest video. "Anybody who says they feel unsafe in the presence of a lawyer and his wife are looking you in the eye and committing the equivalent of perjury. They don't feel unsafe. They've learned the language of the new McCarthyism."

    In other words, people call themselves "victims," knowing they can get results they want by saying they are traumatized by the presence of their enemies. Schools and other businesses, wanting to avoid protracted fights and accusations of sexism, racism or "insensitivity," rush to comply with activists' wishes.

    Dershowitz is mad about what's happened at his school: "The mantra of the day is 'We feel unsafe.' Well, that's just too bad! Learn to deal with it. You're going to have to live in the real world in which your neighbors, friends, relatives are going to disagree with you. If you start using the criteria of 'unsafe' in your life, you're going to be a failure."

    Worse, he adds, "You're going to impose restrictions on the rest of us."

    I worked cutting lawns, then on a farm growing up, to get a dirt bike. I put myself through college without debt, but had to drop out twice due to lack of $$$, I wrenched cars and pumped gas.

    I put myself to a PHD in chemistry. But I still kept my parents farm up., every summer

    I still have the farm, and it means more than my PHD.

    Shouldn't the "I feel unsafe" buzz word work both ways then? I feel unsafe at work because I'm not allowed to carry my firearm. By their reasoning I should now get to carry it.
    First you have to give up. First you have to know, not fear, know that someday you're going to die.

    I feel unsafe due to the deteriation of this nation's spine by the Obama generation, this nation is cronically weekend because of the cradle to grave, live at home to 40, covered by your parents insurance to 26, absorbed with hurt feeling, obamanites. And I am sick of it.

    I agree that anyone attending Harvard University is the antithesis of a victim. These kids just don't know enough about the real world. But what is meant when the author of the article writes, 'They've learned the language of the new McCarthyism.'? My problem with that is that in the end, McCarthy was right.

    I believe that the author was comparing the two from a "persecution of citizens" point of view.

    Right, but it's a bad analogy. Because McCarthy in the end and for the most part was right. So it's a bad analogy.

    One trait of people who are real legit movers and shakers as well as leaders. They don't see themselves as "victims". Guaranteed!

    Git-R-Dunners!

    I can't argue with you.
