Breakfast for the Kids

One of the most intriguingly depraved of the many insanities of radical college faculty in our time is the effort, now ongoing for decades but increasing in intensity and expanse in recent years, to rehabilitate the Black Panther Party (BPP). For a good while in the wake of the demise of the BPP in the early eighties, they were anathema even to much of the Left, as the outspoken embrace of violence by this Marxist-Leninist criminal youth gang masquerading as a political movement was seen as beyond the pale even to staunch progressives. As we got farther away from the BPP, though, the radicals began an attempt to establish respectability for them, in the popular culture and especially in higher education, confident that nearly all the students they teach today will be wholly historically uninformed about the BPP story and too lazy to do any research on them.
