    I was wondering how long it would be before the “librul amoral elitist!” meme was played, and there it is:
    “This is exactly what people who have not spent years in a university
    unlearning common sense do when they declare Dachau an anteroom of Hell.”
    a: i”ve spent years in a university and have made my livelihood from academics. it’s what i always wanted to do, and I’m deeply grateful for my achievement.
    b: Dachau is the anteroom to hell.
    c: and otoh, the Nazis, the people who did those things and came up with a rationalization, weren’t exactly university material.
    now, how are you going to put your brain back together after combining all those?
