The Wounded Rich

Events like students screaming down the ACLU speaker are not about freedom of speech. They are about the narcissistic woundedness if the rich who can’t take anything not being about them. They want to consume everything, consume the world. They feel truly oppressed when attention shifts away from them even for a moment. These protesting kids at W&M are Trumps in miniature. Their protests are the equivalent of his tweets. 
It would be great if people stopped addressing patient and reasoned discussions about the value of free speech to them and started giving sharp rebukes about entitlement and condescension of the rich.
