Althouse Commenter ‘Jeff’

In the “where are all the student war protests” thread in Iraq:

”The real precedent for the student demonstrations of the Vietnam era was the Civil War draft riots. You know, the riots against dying to free other, darker people from a brutal system of slavery?”
That about nails it. Both for the ‘Nam protesters as well as the Sheehans & Murthas of today.
