I don't really have anything to add to either story, other than to point out that it's a coincidence that both would happen at about the same time, since both reflect, directly or indirectly, a new high water mark for Western insanity.
It seems almost sacrilege to link the tragedy in France to the teapot tempest in Missouri, but both incidents are inevitable outcomes of the long period of liberal ascendancy.
The Muslims who have come to Europe don't go there because they want to assimilate. They want to take advantage of the generous welfare benefits the Northern Europeans offer, and, in some cases, because they want to get away from the cesspools they have turned their own countries into.
But what they want most of all is to have Europe assimilate to them -- and they have said as much. Even if they don't intend to become suicide bombers, they want Sharia law, and intend to outbreed and out-proselytize native Europeans.
Most of these Muslims have zero loyalty for the countries they emigrate to. More British Muslims have joined ISIS than have enlisted in the British Army.
The Muslims who live in the banlieus on the outskirts of Paris regularly riot and burn cars and attack outsiders who enter their neighborhoods. All of which demonstrate the same basic sentiment motivating the terrorists who attacked Parisians with AK-47's and hand grenades.
Yet Europe, hamstrung by political correctness, remains willfully obtuse. Will Europe finally heed this latest wake up call? Or will they, as they did after the Charlie Hebdo massacre, act horrified for a day or two, then hit the snooze button and continue to accept more immigrants who feel nothing but contempt for them?
At the University of Missouri, 200 protesting students pressured Tim Wolfe into resigning as President. His crime was to have not reacted with the requisite hysteria to recent racial incidents, and for having refused to stop his car to listen to protesters during the annual homecoming parade.
Since Missouri erupted, there have been similar incidents at Claremont McKenna College, Smith, Yale, and Amherst. The students have conflated words they don't like with "violence," and some have asked for "safe spaces," i.e., those where dissenting voices are not allowed.
The Left has come a long way since the Free Speech movement of the 1960's.
These protests seem to be pushing middle-of-the-roaders to the right. I've recently spoken to several people who've never been particularly partisan, including at least two who voted for Obama in '08, and all are disgusted by the protesters' ridiculous self-indulgence. One of the Obama voters said he'll vote for the Republican in '16 no matter who the candidate is.
Just as the attacks in Paris will help the National Front, the Missouri protests will help the Republicans.
