HotAir: Here’s one suggestion for all of the presidential candidates out on the trail this month… don’t get involved with any questions regarding all the unrest at the nation’s colleges.
The campuses are just festering holes of distraction overrun by Social Justice Warriors who are essentially going to be a lost cause until they get out of there into the real world and receive a stiff dose of reality. And whenever the candidates try to address some of the concerns being raised there will always be somebody ready to smack them down, no matter how reasonable or well intentioned the response may have been.
A prime example of this phenomenon was on display when Ohio Governor John Kasich gave a speech in Watertown, New York and took questions in a town hall format. A young woman who is a freshman attending a college near there asked Kasich what he would do, “to help me feel safer and more secure regarding sexual violence, harassment, and rape?”
