Referring to the comment thread following Is This Why He Sends Flowers to a Funeral?, this is what I mean by Tu Quoque throwing in everything but the kitchen sink. He sez, "The flags are not with anyone, anymore. Yet, they used to be on a daily basis among the student body. Your argument that the flags stood in a secluded place on campus is sort of interesting. You make the location out to be an unused book room where only people in the know visited."
MY argument that the flags stood in a secluded place on campus? The "secluded place" was an alcove in the Lee Chapel with the statue, The Recumbent Lee. It's only been in the news and in the news and in the news.
The flags used to be "on a daily basis among the student body"? The whole student body crowded into the Chapel on a daily basis? Or, more to the point, they crowded into that tiny alcove where the flags were -- on a daily basis?
The committee is made up of civil rights wannabees. We know this because they took the name "the Committe" after the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee. The SNCC didn't pay attention to flags. Read about them here: SNCC.
These college kids at W&L are trying to create their own "glory days" -- imagining themselves the heirs of Stokely Carmichael, Julian Bond, John Lewis, Marion Barry, H.Rap Brown...
Ruscio caved because leftism has taken over academia.
Shrewd and smart both have multiple meanings. The meaning of "shrewd" I had in mind was "artful," and the meaning of "artful" I had in mind is 1. slyly crafty or cunning; deceitful; tricky
But after reading this risible crap about unused book room and the rest of it, I may have to reassess my view that Bakur is shrewd. He apparently is just a product of what passes for the educational establishment in this country....
