Student Rethugs, College Newspapers and Squelching Dissent

This is what is showing up in college campus newspapers these days. One Christina Galoozis, writing in the Indiana Daily Student, says the dissident generals should just shut the fuck up.

Of course she would never use such coarse language -- the Rethugs are the party of god, decency and family values, after all -- but her meaning is clear. If you don't support the president and your ex-boss, the secdef, just keep your fucking mouth shut. It doesn't matter what you have to say, just shut up.

That's what Bill O'Lie-ly says all the time. Shut up. Jesus, these two are soulmates. Maybe she can get a job with Loofah Bill when she graduates. I imagine the interview process is pretty simple: Are you willing to do the things to Bill that Andrea Mackris wasn't? You are? Okay, you're hired. Now get on your knees.

But I digress. Back to the topic at hand.

I suggest, as would my good friends over Yellow Elephant, that if Ms. Galoozis supports this fucking war so goddam much, then she ought to be in uniform and in Iraq. Military recruiters, here's your chance at a gung-ho recruit. You can contact her at the IDS email address:

Things have certainly changed since I was a college journalism student back in the early 1970s. Back then we took seriously the charge that we operated in the public interest, that our function was to comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable, that we were, in fact, the Fourth Estate.

Jesus, it is no fucking wonder that the whore media can't -- won't -- do its job. It's full of these glassy-eyed neocon baby Repugnicans, eager to do the bidding of their overlord masters.
