This Week in Idiocy – 15 February 2016

There are so many things, let us focus on just a few.

The president of Mount St. Mary ‘s College in Maryland issued a comment reported by the student newspaper as: “This is hard for you because you think of the students as cuddly bunnies. But you can’t. You just have to drown the bunnies … put a Glock to their heads.” This was in reference to a plan to have students at risk leave MSM if they were likely to fail out, thus diminishing the college’s standing in the US New and World Report ranking.   What was he thinking?  After the numerous shootings at schools, colleges, and universities over the last few years, why would anyone use that Glock reference.   This also has the ring of eugenics, ridding the populace of racial inferiors.   That the Glock is an Austrian made weapon further identifies the comment as offensive.   It is reported that the president used a survey given out by the college to identify students at risk.  Wouldn’t the college want to help those students?  Or am I hopelessly naive and out of touch?  Then two faculty members were fired for disloyalty, one the adviser of the student newspaper and the other who went public with criticism of the president.  Later the president offered to re-instate the fired faculty members as this is the “Year of Mercy”.  What chutzpah!

But wait, there’s something even more interesting. Conservative commentator Jones is maintaining that President Obama ordered Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia killed.  This is so bizarre that it requires no further comment.
