Cornell Conservative students “are phenomenal, great people, very courageous, and the sharpest people”
My appearance on the Jesse Kelly Show: “So it’s at one level hopeless, at another level, the conservative students on campus keep me going.”
I bookmarked this tweet a couple of weeks ago. I’ve been meaning to post about it.
The tweet is by Joel Berry of The Babylon Bee. It struck me as summing up what I and a lot of other people have been feeling.
“There’s nothing to conserve anymore. It’s gone. The decay has done its work. It’s time to acknowledge that rebuild.”

No particular reason to run it now. None whatsoever.
I appeared on Thursday, April 13, 2023, on the Jesse Kelly show on The First TV:
“As disheartening as the overall picture of academia can be, there are great conservative students on Cornell’s campus and on almost every campus. And that’s what keeps me going, is that the conservative students on this campus are phenomenal, great people, very courageous, and the sharpest people, because they have to defend their views every single day. If you’re a liberal on this campus, you get patted on the back and everybody goes along with you. If you’re a conservative on Cornell’s campus, you’ve got to be prepared to justify your positions. So it’s at one level hopeless, at another level, the conservative students on campus keep me going.”

Well done, well said, Prof J.
What is the approximate number or percentage of such students?
A Professor there told me it is approximately 20% at Cornell. That’s a guess, of course, because most of them are afraid to “come out” and simply stay beneath the surface.
Jerome Tuccille recounts his encounter with a conservative student at a conference long ago
“There are five legitimate functions of government,” said the student.
“No kidding. What are they?” asked Tuccille.

They’re too young to know about ideas vs. perverse consequences.
So it’s better than just more leftist morons to deal with but conservatism is elsewhere.
1. Everyone is conservative about what he knows best
2. Any organization not explicitly right-wing sooner or later becomes left-wing.
3. The simplest way to explain the behavior of any bureaucratic organization is to assume that it is controlled by a cabal of its enemies.
Decay is inevitable, renewal always necessary. Conservatism as a means to conserve is dead, it must now become the rebellion agains the status quo.
I stand with the People of Zulu color against the People of Mandela’s Xhosa color.
I stand alternatively with the Hutu then Tutsi then Hutu…
I stand with the Kenyan deplorables against the Kenyan elite Obamas et al.
I stand with babies… buns, in ovens, against the human rites activists and advocates of social, redistributive, clinical, political, criminal, and fair weather progress.
When first we practice diversity, congruence, and selection.
