Unmitigated B.S.

This is complete baloney. You know what? The left just won't play fair. They insinuate themselves into our institutions, and then use their ill-gotten power to abuse those with whom they disagree. It bites.

Naw, they're just insane...and safer from reality in an educational institution than they'd ever be in an asylum.

Oh, poor little Becca. Someone radically disagrees with her, says so in an email, and this amounts to silencing, harrasing and oppressing her? Far cry from it.

Read the fricken' email. Daly vowed to "expose", not intimidate. "Insinuate into our institutions"? BS. The guy got fricken hired, just like anybody else, or don't you favor such things as gainful employment? And what the hell do you mean by "OUR" institutions? Do you pay for community colleges in Virginia, GeeGuy? 'Didn't think so.

Face it, this is nothing more than a political spat between partisans, using whatever wimpy little unfounded accusations they can to prove the other to be "mean" and "wicked" and "hurtful". My real question here, GeeGuy, is this: what is a dude like you, who normally posts strong conservative admonishments against those who damage what really matters to you, posting now to defend such pussies who take offense at any disagreement? Is this really what you mean to do, or do you just want to attack a phantom (LEFTIES BOOGA BOOGA) so bad that you couldn't resist the call of the stupid? Please do clarify.

I am happy to clarify, Wulfgar. First, though, thanks for reading the blog. I appreciate your coming here and challenging me. That, to me, seems to be the whole point of blogging, and I wish it happened more.

You have a legitimate point about the word "expose" vs. intimidate, but when the person who makes the threat/promise has the ability to set your grade, and when the language used is so vitriolic, I think one can fairly infer an intent to intimidate her. But that's not really my point.

Yeah, the guy got frickin hired alright. No doubt by a left-wing administration full of left-wing professors, who won't even consider hiring a person who professes even the slightest right of center leaning. Diversity my a$$.

If you do not like the word insinuate, how about "infiltrate" or "captured." The left has taken over the academy. If you seriously question that assertion, please let me know and when I get home, I'll dig a little deeper for source materials.

I'll also cede you a small point on my 'defending of pussies.' (I, of course, use the term figuratively, and not literally. I will be PC in this discussion.) This strikes me harder for a couple reasons, though:

1. She could certainly expect that her grades will suffer given the difference in relative power between her and the professor.

2. While she is not silenced, I think the idea that one who I disagree with should be a)considered evil and b)run off campus is antithetical to the notion of "higher education."

3. While I may or may not pay for community colleges in Virginia (I don't know if they receive federal funding), there is something sickly ironic about a man denigrating a country and its economic system while on its teat.

4. This hits close to home in that I represented a professor who was discriminated against due to his political beliefs; this topic is of great concern due to the potential to exercise undue sway over young minds and due to the potential that politically correct BS clouds out real learning. I have three kids who I hope will be attending college in the not too distant future.

5. The night before I read about this story, my 7th grader related an incident at his school where a teacher railed against the GOP. 7th Grade! So the timing was right.

So, there you go, Wulfgar. Thanks again, and I look forward to your reply.

Yeah, "they"...dude, find a new boogeyman....you took so much out of context that it would take me an hour to correct it. No body cares about the YAF and its cadre of right wing think tank financial supporters-talk about "infuencing the young"... pot meet kettle.
You are a lawyer?

Spend the hour, or your post is meaningless.
