UC-D’s Morally Bankrupt “Kent State” Moment

We’ve all seen the video: The Man (in the form of local police) pepper spraying a long line of apparently peaceful “Occupy” protesters on the campus of University of California-Davis. Of course, you can always count on the usual suspects (in this case, Joy Behar and her Weird Sisters of The View) to leap to a grossly overstated moral equivalence:

“A lot of people watching are too young to remember Kent State in this country, where the police shot a couple of students,” observed Behar. “It’s outrageous, this type of behavior cannot be tolerated by the police!”

Right. Useful-idiot college kids who, in practicing their juvenile brand of civil disobedience, were warned they would be sprayed, consented to it, and then were shocked —shocked! — when it actually happened. But that was okay, because all of the news outlets picked up the video and made the kids look completely awesome!

With that in mind, I dedicate the following lyrics to Joy Behar (with absolutely no apology to Neil Young):

News cameras and SWAT teams coming,
We’re finally on NBC.
Occupying and drumming, drumming,
Pepper-sprayed at UC-D.
Gotta get down to it
Spray is making us cry
(At least it’ll kill all the fleas)
Get all the cameras
And film us crying like girls
How can we lose on NBC?
News cameras and SWAT teams coming,
We’re here for the world to see.
Idiotic and drumming, drumming,
Pepper-sprayed at UC-D.
Pepper-sprayed at UC-D.
