Fear and Loathing at Logan International: Massachusetts Is Depraved and Decadent

Bulletin-board flyer welcomes LGBTQIA+ students at UMass Amherst.

My flight back home was delayed by an hour and Pete Da Tech Guy got me here pretty quickly driving against the flow of rush-hour traffic out of Boston, so there’s time to relate a little of what we saw Monday during our visit to the Amherst campus of the University of Massachusetts.

We arrived as the sun was slanting low, and I had put in a call to Jason Ross, chairman of the statewide College Republicans alliance, whom Pete had interviewed Friday in Lexington. Could Jason get me in touch with the UMass CRs? He provided me with contact information for the chapter president, Alex Gerty, but when I called her, she was busy and instead connected me to the chapter vice-president, Carly Bishop. Meanwhile, Pete called my attention to the flyers pinned up on the bulletin board outside the dining hall.





So if you’re a socialist, a Muslim, a QTPOC (queer or trans person of color) or a Democrat, there are lots of activities for you at UMass.

On the other hand . . . well, not so much.

To be white, Christian or heterosexual on any college campus nowadays is to be a demonized minority, under suspicion as a source of hate, and if you happen also to be Republican, you probably don’t want to mention this to anyone, especially in Massachusetts, where only 11% of voters are registered as Republicans. Massachusetts is so liberal wicked that taxpayer funding for abortion is protected by the state constitution.

Or at least, that was what the Massachusetts supreme court ruled in 1981, so that pro-life activists hoping to defund Planned Parenthood must first get an amendment to the state constitution passed, and are circulating a petition to get the issue on the ballot. Killing babies is government work in this state, where every member of Congress is a Democrat, and transgender Brianna Wu is running a primary challenge to Democrat incumbent Rep. Stephen Lynch who, somehow, isn’t liberal enough to suit the deranged SJW formerly known as John Flynt.

Everywhere on the Amherst campus of the University of Massachusetts, we saw gigantic banners proclaiming: “Hate Has No Home at UMass.”


In case you don’t understand, “hate” is a synonym for Republican in the minds of the UMass administration and faculty. Any child in Massachusetts who somehow avoids being aborted at taxpayer expense will nevertheless be politically indoctrinated at taxpayer expense, so that the very existence of College Republicans at UMass is rather miraculous.

Well, I’ll have to tell the rest of this story later, because they’re about to call boarding for Flight 1713 at Gate A19, and I’ve got to finish my beverage, pack up the laptop and get in line. As always, I ask readers to remember the Five Most Important Words in the English Language:
