Dan Crenshaw: Maybe College Students Will Laugh at Microaggressions After Pandemic

Crenshaw is suggesting that after students have lived through a real crisis, maybe they’ll drop all the SJW stuff. Not likely.
Dan Crenshaw: After Coronavirus, College Kids Might Laugh at Microaggressions
“Maybe college kids will go to school next year and laugh at the idea of microaggressions, because maybe they actually lived through something difficult lately,” said Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX), speculating on a possible improvement among post-secondary students’ attitudes following the eventual end of the coronavirus pandemic.
In an interview on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Sunday with host Joel Pollak, Crenshaw, a retired Navy SEAL and author of Fortitude: American Resilience in the Era of Outrage, considered the development of resilience through adversity.
Pollak said, “You wrote this book about the breakdown of America’s ability to deal with difficulty,” adding, “It’s a hard lesson to learn, but it’s something you’ve got to teach your kids.”
Left-wing fetishization of illusory grievances weakens one’s capacity to persevere through difficulty, warned Crenshaw.
“I didn’t write this book for coronavirus, but there are lots of applicable lessons to the virus, and this confrontation with risk and risk acceptance,” Crenshaw said. “I note in the book how worried I am to see this trend about outrage culture, and the obsession with being offended, and microaggressions. I worry that the current population could never deal with something truly difficult, and I make note of that in the book.”

Crenshaw and I are kindred spirits.
All of this fear mongering, pandering, and extortion of social capital can only lead to one dismal place.
No, people haven’t learned anything. Now it’s “racist” to mention where the coronavirus came from. That’s gone from a “microaggression” to “racism.”
Many current students would now call it “racist” to blame the attack on Pearl Harbor on the Japanese. They would say that “some people did something” to punish imperialist America.
You haven’t seen a microaggression until some of these kids figure out they’re going to have to pay for five years of schooling to get a four-year degree.
Pandemic? It has barely risen to the status of outbreak. I recently rewatched the George Carlin routine on germs and thought about how no college would be brave enough to invite him these days, because they are all pussies (his word, not mine).
