The Discerning Texan
-- Edmund Burke
Sunday, October 28, 2007
Having attended college at UT-Austin, I can attest for the city's heavier than normal liberal population; it is after all the home of The University of Texas (my alma mater, and I love the place; but let's face it, it's our answer to Berkeley and Boulder), but also the seat of State Government and all of the nanny state mentality that implies. In a way it is nice because it is a very "laid back" place with lots of home-grown music and creativity. But like many other major universities these days, PC has infected the UT faculty administrators and faculty where opposing points of view are repressed.
So that is why this story is so delicious to me:
Air America is booted off the dial in liberal Austin, Texas, provoking bewilderment at democraticunderground.com:This is a city that is overwhelmingly Democratic, but the right-wing talk radio stations in town consistently get much better ratings.
Even commies don’t want to listen to commies.
When they may be starting to see the light in Austin, there is hope for us all.
