Jesse Jackson is probably not worth beating up on anymore, but I can’t let his getting arrested at Yale go unnoticed. Yale’s service and clerical workers are on strike, and notables from around the country have gathered in New Haven to support their walkout and garner some free publicity. Today Jackson was arrested to the cheers of onlookers.
Jackson wasn’t the only publicity-seeker in the crowd; Connecticut’s Secretary of State Susan Bysiewicz, who graduated from Yale, and the state’s Attorney General, Richard Blumenthal, a Yale Law School alum, also marched. Another example of how leftism has largely given way to playing at leftism.
