According to a University official, the Trayvon Martin case proves it’s legal to hunt children. What a moron. More evidence our places of higher learning are dominated by leftist dogma – this time in Maryland. The most outrageous and hateful teachings are allowed in the name of “academics” but if a conservative tries to make their views known on campus, they’re shut down and kept away from the students out of fear they might actually influence their young skulls.
This official should not only be fired, he should be brought up on charges or at least never be allowed near a student again. Report from Maxim Lott over at Fox News:
An email sent to students by a University of Maryland official that cites the Trayvon Martin shooting as evidence “it is legal to hunt down and kill American children in Florida” is being blasted as the latest evidence of a left-wing bias on campus.
The email, from William Dorland, director of the school’s Honors College, starts by welcoming students back to campus, but then quickly veers into politics.
“This year, we learned that it is legal to hunt down and kill American children in Florida,” it reads, in a reference to the trial of George Zimmerman, who was cleared of all charges in the fatal shooting of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin. The email went out to all students in the Honors College.
Jim Purtilo, a University of Maryland computer science professor, said the comments struck him as inappropriate. “It’s over the top. But very much business as usual on this campus.” Purtilo also says that the incident is indicative of liberal bias he sees on the campus every day. He related one story that he had seen.
“I was on a committee for a very prestigious award on campus, which basically gives a free ride to the selected student, and I remember our committee once interviewing a young woman from one of the more rural counties of the state. And she was poised and articulate and tremendously well prepared, top scores and maxed out SAT and everything… but she made no secret about her religious views, and she asked about things like whether we had a drug- and alcohol-free dorm hall,” Purtilo said.
“The committee’s conclusion was, ‘oh, she has very strict views, very rigid views — she would not be comfortable here’… you often hear code words like those, which really mean that the person is right-of-center politically.”
Bottom line is it’s going to take a long, long time to take back these campuses. Parents are going to have to get the information they need about what their kids are being exposed to by these extremists who want your kids to turn against you. That’s right – one of the ten commandments from Marx: Get those kids away from their parents – and the best way is to indoctrinate them into thinking their parents are evil.
