Princeton Takes the Cake?

The kill-the-Jews protests at one “elite” university after another have exposed the low level of both information and intelligence of some students, and even some professors. But the Princeton protest has established a milestone of sorts, as one of its leaders complains of “starving,” a condition she apparently blames on the university. She and the others are on a hunger strike. They also, she says, are “immunocompromised,” a weird claim that perhaps relates to covid obsession. I note that this girl is wearing a mask, for no apparent reason.

Here she is:

News reports indicate that Democrats are increasingly worried that campus protests will hurt them in November. I think they are right to worry, especially if protests turn their convention into a nightmare as happened in 1968.

Meanwhile, Rasmussen finds today that Republicans’ advantage on the crime issue is growing:

Less than six months before Election Day, the Republican Party has widened its lead over Democrats in terms of who voters trust more to deal with the issue of crime.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 53% of Likely U.S. Voters trust Republicans more to handle crime and law enforcement issues, while 35% trust Democrats more. Twelve percent (12%) are not sure. This marks a net increase of six points in the GOP margin since February….

Independent voters favor Republicans on crime by an overwhelming 54% to 24% margin.

No doubt some voters associate the massively-unpopular campus disorders with the Democratic Party, given that the anti-Semites are obviously on the left, not the right, and that prominent liberals like Ilhan Omar and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez have supported the riots. Beyond that, I think that most voters understand that Democrats are soft on crime, and Republicans less so. That difference comes to the fore when voters’ concerns about crime are on the upsurge. Which doesn’t bode well for Democrats, since in the same Rasmussen survey, 79% of respondents said that the crime issue will be important in this year’s presidential election.
