  1. The scene in which everyone was chanting at some demonstration at about 25:50 into the video was frightening. It looked like a scene out of a cheap 70’s movie. Everyone had a nice clean equal sized sign and the chanting was uniformly perfect. Groupthink is alive and well. I saw this coming when a social studies teacher chastised me for reading “None Dare Call It Treason” as a high school sophomore in 1966 but said nothing when I was reading “Mao’s Little Red Book”. It was apparent then that the left was digging in for what now appears to be a complete hijack of the educational system. Common Core finished it off. Off course, after watching this interview I did some searching only to be led to NYU ‘s “Washington Square News”. After viewing this website, it sincerely made me fear for America’s future.

    1. Yes, Walt. I quite agree. Political Correctness is destroying the once-cherished value of making room for comments from all sides. Once upon a time, colleges taught students not what to think, but how to think. All this is moving in a very dangerous direction regarding the survival of Democracy.
