Some responses to the hijacking of the Athenaeum by the far left students from Pitzer.
- From The Other McCain, who called the protests "puerile crap"
- From Tom Bevan of The Real Clear Politics who spoke at the Ath tonight and who alluded to one of Rove's more memorable discussions about how effective attacks are "specific."
- From L. A. Times Blog which erroneously claimed that students were protesting the talk. There's an exchange between me and several of the more progressive nuts that littered our campus.
- From the Obama nuts who tried to hijack our facilities and sent out messages to everyone else.
Here was my response.
... it is entirely untrue that the paint did no permanent damage. It clogged up the vents of the fountains which had to be entirely drained, which meant a higher expense as we had to throw all that water out rather than simply pumping it through the filter. For people who tend to be so concerned about the environment, the Pitzer environmentalists tend to be most destructive of other people's! I guess property rights are a bridge too far for them!A few friends and I watched the facilities people come in and clean it all up. They had to drain the fountains, clean each and every tile as the dyed, red residue had to be scraped off, lest it sit. So much for caring for the little people, eh, protesters?
