In what may be the beginning of a disturbing (joyful?) trend, Presbo told the University of Virginia to gear up, because he had decided that he wanted to hold a campaign rally on their digs. Euphemistically, he sent them a note that he would like to address the university next week. This was to be part of his attempt to give the lib-prog media something to faun over while they were so blatantly avoiding giving news coverage to the Republican National Convention. (The Democratic National Convention has already been scheduled to be broadcast live every day that it runs. No bias there.)
UVA politely declined. They cited the disruption of classes, the increased cost of security, the needs of the students, their desire to be politically neutral as is their charter.
This after a little bakery, Crumb and Get It, in Radford, Virginia told the Biden campaign “Thanks, but no thanks”, that they could take their business elsewhere. That they disagreed with Presbo’s statement that they didn’t build their business.
Then Newsweek, (which surely was supposed to be a pillar of lib-prog supplication), came out with that awful hit piece by the great Scottish historian and Harvard professor, Niall Ferguson, that suggested…. no…. made an abject, clear, slam-dunk case that Presbo had done a lousy job and needed to leave quietly and quickly.
Are more people deciding that they are no longer buying what Presbo is selling?
What if you gave a revolution, and nobody came?
