Bearding the lion in its den

The Stanford Review has gone where no one has gone before. (I'm linking to Powerline's copy because it's nearly certain Stanford Review will be forced to delete the original.)

Ultimately, the only effective counterattack against SJW foolishness is the horselaugh. This is the first substantial shot I've heard of. Here's hoping it won't be the last.

It would have been better if written in chalk on Stanford sidewalks, of course, but you can't have everything.

1 But I won't be surprised if we hear that people are chalking "Half-lives matter" at Stanford.

2 7. We DEMAND that Stanford ends its use of European languages, since they are inherently colonialist. We recommend Xhosa, Zulu, and interpretive dance as alternatives for person-to-person communication.

Skip the Xhosa and Zulu.  Those will be considered "culturally appropriative" as soon as English is banned.  Interpretive dance for everyone.

And everyone is free to interpret everyone else's dance as they desire.  Imagine... no more hurt feelings.

...and no more communication, but sacrifices must be made!

Every time I looked at these SJW activists, I am reminded of Mao's Red Guards in the Cultural Revolution.

I am also reminded of the fact that the Red Guards, and the SJW movement, have gotten as far as they did or have because they were convenient to someone in power.  Once the SJW have outlived their usefulness, they will be suppressed by the people who used them who also happen to possess far more firepower and authority - just like the young people who joined the Red Guards ended up.  The luckier ones found they had wasted a decade of their lives for nothing to show for it.  The unlucky ones ended up in the same camps they had sent their victims.  The unluckiest of them all were executed by the PLA.  And frankly, anyone cynical enough to use the SJW cadre will not be the merciful type when those cadres become dispensable.

Properly so, I think. Looking at what's been going on at Trump rallies, I think the left decided some time back that they needed shock troops, and set out to recreate the Red Guard. The issue that's troubling them now is that they didn't come with an off switch, they go off and do thuggish things even if it's counter-productive.
