The American Left, celebrating buffoons, while rejecting wise men

First the buffoon, as in Trevor Noah, host of the Daily Show who was interviewed by CBS This Morning, where he was asked to share his brilliant brilliance on the election 

See, Trump only won because RAAAAACISM, and SEXXXXXISM. Noah dives into the deep end of the idiot pool at about 4:30 where Noah says Whiteness, and Sexism were the most important factors for Trump supporters. See? It is so clear to Trevor Noah, there is no way Americans could have voted against Hillary because of her dishonesty, corruption, and complete lack of character.

Now, compare this to students and professors getting all outrageously outraged over the University of Virginia using quotes from Thomas Jefferson Yes, really

Via Cavalier Daily:

Several groups on Grounds collaborated to write a letter to University President Teresa Sullivan against the inclusion of a Thomas Jefferson quote in her post-election email Nov. 9.

In the email, Sullivan encouraged students to unite in the wake of contentious results, arguing that University students have the responsibility of creating the future they want for themselves.

“Thomas Jefferson wrote to a friend that University of Virginia students ‘are not of ordinary significance only: they are exactly the persons who are to succeed to the government of our country, and to rule its future enmities, its friendships and fortunes,’” Sullivan said in the email. “I encourage today’s U.Va. students to embrace that responsibility.”

Some professors from the Psychology Department — and other academic departments — did not agree with the use of this quote. Their letter to Sullivan argued that in light of Jefferson’s owning of slaves and other racist beliefs, she should refrain from quoting Jefferson in email communications.

“We would like for our administration to understand that although some members of this community may have come to this university because of Thomas Jefferson’s legacy, others of us came here in spite of it,” the letter read. “For many of us, the inclusion of Jefferson quotations in these e-mails undermines the message of unity, equality and civility that you are attempting to convey.”

Sure who would wish to hear quotes from a truly wise man, who helped found the freest nation on earth? A man who founded the very university these students attend. A man who valued education, and thinking, and individual liberty. A man that grasped that individual liberties, or natural rights, are a part of all of us. A man who, like most of our Founders, understood that all should be free, and put into place values that would one day eliminate the evils of slavery.

What is wrong with America you ask? We no longer value wisdom

    We are truly doomed, this election will not change that, only delay. When a large portion of the population holds such a lack of their own history there is a disconnect between the moral idealism that made us what and who we are to a long and painful spiral into a non nation. We will become a fractured peoples subject to the whims and wishes to whichever group that hold a tenuous power at the moment whether that power be legitimate or not.
