BARR: ‘The Dumbest Generation’ Grows Even Dumber

The Daily Caller | Former Rep. Bob Barr | Contributor

June 29, 2020 9:26 AM ET

excerpt:

In 2008, Mark Bauerlein wrote “The Dumbest Generation, How the Digital Age Stupefies Young Americans and Jeopardizes Our Future.” Judging by events in the intervening dozen years (and especially in recent months), it appears that Bauerlein’s assessment was premature and perhaps even too kind.

Bauerlein correctly identified over reliance on the internet and social media (then still in its infancy) as the primary culprits for Millennials losing their ability to think, learn and communicate coherently. What his analysis perhaps did not anticipate is the number of adults who have come to encourage, empower and support Millennials in these efforts. It is almost as if adults in government, the news media and academia are competing with Millennials for the title.

Consider, for example, the issue of providing college students with “safe spaces,” where they can shelter from the horrors of people, ideas and principles they consider “offensive.” The students may be the ones pushing for these accommodations, but it is the adult college administrators who cave in and make it happen.

Young protesters in Seattle may “occupy” a sector of that once-respected city; they may scream “police brutality” and call for the police department to be “defunded.” Their  demands, however, would amount to little were it not for the city’s clueless Mayor Jenny Durken, who lauded the young occupiers as “patriots,” and her namby-pamby police chief, Carmen Best, who decided that barricades which had protected one of her department’s precinct headquarters should be removed as a “gesture of trust” to the mob.

While adult elected enablers of today’s young mobs predominate in west coast cities such as Portland, Seattle, San Francisco and Los Angeles, counterparts are found across the country. New York’s dynamic duo of Governor Andrew Cuomo and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio repeatedly praise and encourage the demonstrators, even as they offer virtually no support for police who are left to deal with the looting, arson and violence in the streets. Meanwhile, Cuomo’s narcissistic brother, CNN commentator Chris Cuomo, muses on air that protesters need not be either polite or peaceful.

That's because these children are indoctrinated from the Hillary Generation and they are thoroughly embedded in the schools. Time we started getting rid of them. Maybe we need to run a bunch of them through the wuhan flu and see how many of their idiotic ideas stand after they are all gone.

Public school curriculum manipulation and indoctrination made the generations ripe for this kind of mindless sheeple mentality.

Those of us who are adults now are going to have to carry the load awhile longer while the thirty-somethings, twenty-somethings and know it all 'I'm gonna get to vote at sixteen' types still wearing diapers get schooled in the ways of common sense and old fashioned basics of being a contributing member of society...

And, while they're at it, someone needs to open up the libraries across this nation and teach these pissants what the Dewey decimal system is all about and to look up actual reference books and READ them, not just get Cliff Notes or do some sort of synopsis skim.
