Liberal/progressives are quick to take offense when anyone disagrees with them, but are not concerned with the feelings of those they disagree with.

Recently Rutgers University students demanded an apology for having a conservative speak on campus. The speech so traumatized them that they felt they needed a group therapy session to recover. A number of organizations were there after the event to offer support for these students, including Psychiatric Services, the Office for Violence Prevention and Victim Assistance, and the Rutgers University Police. Said one protesting student, “I do not know what else to do for us to be heard for us to be cared about. I deserve an apology; everyone in this room deserves an apology!”

This kind of behavior has become an all too familiar phenomenon at colleges and universities lately, as well as in our society as a whole.

Like many liberal policies this sensitivity for the feelings of others started with good intentions once upon a time. Words can certainly be hurtful. Derogatory racial or ethnic slurs, for instance, should not be flung around by anyone. But, like most other progressive notions this reasonable compassion has morphed into something altogether as wrong, some would say even worse, than the behavior they criticized.
