'Not Allowing Us Bathroom Rights Is a Human-Rights Violation!'

They just don't make protesters like they used to. Get a load of this bunch of sniveling pantloads at NYU. All those old hippies who took over Columbia back in the 60's must be rolling over in the communes, or wherever the heck they are.
THEY don't make radicals the way they used to.

Some 60 students - all elite, lily white and whiny - took over the cafeteria at New York University's Kimmel Center Wednesday night to stage not a party, but a protest.

The kids showed up armed for slumber, with sleeping bags, camera phones, laptops and plenty of cellphones for the homesick to call Mom.

Just minutes after the well-heeled warriors took over the room on the third floor, they made their first demand to the administration. Via cellphone, natch.

What was the No. 1 priority for this band of complainers? World peace? Free tuition? A hot bath?

Close. They demanded the right to use the bathroom.

"Not allowing us bathroom rights is a human-rights violation!" Emily Stainkamp, an 18-year-old freshman, said from her cellphone inside the cafeteria. The university relented, and students won the right to tinkle.

"My parents are a little worried," Fharah Khimji, 20, said from inside. "They're paying a lot of money to send me here."
Apparently Fharah has no idea of the sacrifices parents make to send whiny little brats to college and this is how they're repaid? How about shutting up and going to class so your folks can get something in return?

I thought with the ascension of Barack Obama to the White House that all was going to be well with the world?

Guess not. These overprivileged punks will always find something to bitch about.
With the kids' human rights indulged, they unfurled a dizzying list of 13 demands, which ran the gamut from lower tuition, to NYU pulling out investments in Israel, to giving freebies to Palestinian students. But their No. 1 demand was this: "Full legal and disciplinary amnesty for all parties involved in the occupation."

You can't say these kids are too dumb to look out for their own interests.

Outside, about 40 supporters held a rally. Keri Lyons, 20, and Nadia Collado, 19, walked around topless in some kind of protest over NYU's failure to expose where its money goes. Or something. It was cold.

A cop eyed the crowd and shook his head.

"It's pathetic," he said. "These are privileged kids. These kids have silver spoons in their mouths, and their parents send them here - so they can sit in the cafeteria."
Linked at Hot Air. Thanks!

Update: The "siege" has ended.
