    Mom and I received a letter from our daughter’s private college prior to Thanksgiving break 20 years ago explaining and prepping us for how our student daughter may have changed during her first indoctrination to college life.

    The mom’s reaction in this ‘toon is understandable. Luckily our daughter did not change as politically dramatic as this depiction, but definitely a new personality. And good for us, after college and medical school she has become a wonderfully intelligent person.

    We parents just need to allow them their freedom to explore and learn. We went through similar in our college days.

    As is well known to these graphic commentators, most of the pro Palestine demonstrations are rather heavily tilted to Arab origin foreign students.

    As for the implication that any opinion that criticizes Israel for their huge role in creating the conditions that give power to the radicals in Hamas must be based in anti Semitism – well that’s just ignorant and stupid. Which is exactly what I expect from Varvel.

    Being an anti Semite is being against Jews as a group because they are Jews. And most certainly, Hamas and for that matter many Arabs are anti Semites.

    (Which is an oddity of language, as the Semitic grouping includes Arabs that are not Jews. Semitic refers to LANGUAGE, and takes in Arabic, Hebrew and Aramaic, among others. Thus, being anti Arab means you’re automatically an anti Semite. Common usage has cut this down to Jews.)

    One can most certainly criticize BOTH Israel and Hamas, and not hate on either Jews or Arabs as a group. The conflation with “must be like Hitler” is absolutely absurd.

    As I said, what I expect here.

    Thinking Putin is a dangerous man doesn’t mean you hate Russians. Criticizing that Deranged Butterball who is crushing North Korea does not make you anti-Asian. Saying Netanyahu is bad does not make you Hitler. However: If it’s terrorism when Hamas targets civilians means that when Israel does it, it’s still terrorism. I’m sorry; not Manichean enough for your widdle brain?

    Education is a bad thing in some families, can break long held family traditions.

    Have to wonder just what “facts” are behind Varvel’s opinion…

    [ Where did he pull this one from? ]

    The kid desires that in future every attempt to speak to him will be prefaced by a clicking of the heels, hand raised in a Nazi salute and a hearty "Sieg heil!’

    Maybe we should expose our children to a wide range of ideas earlier in life, teach them to think. Nah! GOP would never go for thinking or facts.

    All these crazy teen girls with their rainbow colored hair, wearing shorts, and shirts with crazy slogans, the young males dressing almost the same, need to go over to Iran, and these middle East countries and parade around till they are beat down, stoned, and treated like dirt. Nothing like a young lady in a burka to really express their ideas….and get whipped for expressing their thoughts. Guys would do alright till they saw a young lady that they would love to date only to be slapped by the father and his friends for impure thoughts. Yes nothing like Iran, Iraq, Saudi Arabia and middle east countries for protesting and acting like a fool.
