Some people are just strange.
Especially on the Left.
OK, so let’s do a quick rundown on weird behavior by the institutional left. The first example would be the uproar over “censorship” when Christians complained about the display of “Piss Christ”, a crucifix immersed in a jar of urine. Next would come the howls when Christians complained about a “picture” of Mary produced with cow dung. Today comes the ultimate in double-speak thanks to a report in the Washington Post.
The bottom line is apparently some books in the Harvard library got doused in urine. This was originally reported as a “hate crime”. Now let me be really clear, I think the concept of a “hate crime” is one of THE most stupid applications of legal insanity on earth. But the idea that splashing a book or two with urine might qualify because, I suspect, somebody got their little feelings hurt is simply beyond the pale. Way beyond.
And then we get to the “resolution” of this despicable crime wave.
CAMBRIDGE, Mass. — A Harvard University dean says damage to three dozen books on gay and lesbian issues that appeared to have been doused in urine in a campus library was simply an accident.
Dean Evelynn Hammonds told The Crimson student newspaper Monday that an investigation determined that a library worker found a bottle of what appeared to be urine on a shelf in the Lamont Library and accidentally spilled it.
It remains unclear what a bottle of urine was doing in a library.
Remember folks, this is Harvard. As in Harvard University in Boston. And a number of things strike me in this reading. First of all the idea that the Left – in the person of the head of the Harvard College Queer Students and Allies is willing to accept the excuse given by the Harvard spokesperson AT ALL, let alone with a straight face. And then there’s that what was a bottle of urine doing in the library? Huh? Studying in the stacks and you bring a bottle so you don’t have to take time out to go to the potty? Maybe some kinky stuff over in the Queer section of the library?
Frankly, this is just entertaining. And I’m betting this isn’t the last we’ll hear of this incident.
