Is it just me, or are any of my fellow baby boomers having an acid flashback to the 1960s while watching the Madison protests? I could swear I saw a sign that said “The Whole World Is Watching,” which immediately sent me skylarking back to the glory days of Obama buddies Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn and the Chicago riots of 1968.
Good times, good times.
Then there’s the old standby, “Hey, hey/ho, ho” chant, an all-purpose ditty student radicals have been using for decades. About the only thing that’s missing is: “Hey, hey, LBJ, how many kids did you kill today?” But today’s protesters are not as ecumenical in their political scorn as they used to be.
It’s great to drag out these oldies but goodies, but can’t a new generation of over-privileged and under-worked layabouts come up with something new? Everything about liberalism is tired these days, including its slogans.
