Leftist is Profane & Child Like

I lived through the student Vietnam anti-war demonstrations and the 1960’s free speech demonstrations at the University of California at Berkeley. And, I witnessed a number of leftist demonstrations in the last 30 years. I concluded that there is one unseemly leftist characteristic that transcends the immaturity of youth, the proclivity of expressing oneself in profane terms, which foretells the lack of a cogent argument. It is perhaps the result of an inability to express oneself intellectually.

In Colorado Springs, the Rocky Mountain Collegian at Colorado State University joined the ranks of the profane.

A four word editorial with a four letter word in it is sparking a spirited discussion on free speech at Colorado State University.

The Rocky Mountain Collegian published an editorial on page 4 of the paper Friday which read "Taser this ... F*** Bush." The expletive was spelled out.

Often the profanity is linked to accusations of “Nazi” or “Hitler.” You come to expect that sort of thing from childish minds.
