#NewTone: Tolerant, peaceful college leftists heckle, harass, chase David Petraeus

Via Mediaite (hat tip):

Recent video shows former CIA director David Petraeus being chased down a New York City street by student activists at the City University of New York.

As BusinessInsider reported, Petraeus was on the way to teaching his first class at CUNY’s honors college, entitled “Are We on the Threshold of the North American Decade?” He took on the teaching gig as part of rehabilitating his image following an extramarital affair scandal that led to his resignation from the CIA.

The students can be heard yelling “War criminal!” at the retired military officer who played a key role in the “counterinsurgency” strategy of the Iraq War. “Every class, David!” the students shout, suggesting they plan to protest him on a weekly basis, before every lecture.

“Petraeus out of CUNY” and “Fascist” were some of the other chants.

The video, about a minute and a half, is below:

Wait a minute – you thought far leftists, especially at institutions of higher learning, were all about peace, tolerance, understanding, and open-mindedness? Oh, let me dissuade you of that notion right now. In reality, far leftists at universities and colleges across the country are some of the most intolerant, bigoted, hateful, closed-minded people you will ever come across in your life. And once they graduate and head out into the real world, most of them carry on with the same type of disgusting behavior, because they were lovingly coddled – and in many cases blatantly encouraged – by their professors and other higher ups in academia to keep “speaking truth to power” or whatever.

America is raising a nation full of ungrateful, disrespectful, self-centered imbeciles. We can only hope that most of them won’t go into politics.

    Of course they’re too selfish and self-absorbed to realized that guys like him, who willingly and selflessly put their lives in harms way for decades, are the reason the spoiled children of Liberal elitists like them are allowed to make complete fools of themselves publicly in this country without fear of being thrown in prison or killed, as they are in many, many other nations around the world.

    This is indicative of how low we, as a nation, have sunk. Whenever something happens, the LSM reports what the mood and tone of “social media” was concerning events such as this. How pathetic we must look in the eyes of the world. Imagine the image that is projected, “I’m so mad I could just tweet!”

    “Therefore you have no excuse, O man, whoever you are, when you judge another; for in passing judgment upon him you condemn yourself, because you, the judge, are doing the very same things.”–Romans 2:1

    Oh, what a climate of inspiration and learning it must be gathered together in a classroom with students such as these. Chairman Mao would be so proud.
