All too often we hear of liberal professors infecting our youth’s minds with progressive nonsense. One professor is standing up to all of that nonsense.
Mike Adams, criminology Professor at UNC-Wilmington, rants about how he will not tolerate those students who think they should not be offended.
He says, “Finally, if this doesn’t work then I would simply ask you to get the hell out of the country. The ever-growing thinned-skinned minority you have joined is simply ruining life in this once-great nation.” (via TownHall.com)
After detailing the history of military service in his family, this professor names the new enemy, the “Marxists” who “run” public universities. He mentions he doesn’t care if he just offended any Marxist students.
In part, this patriotic professor blames public high schools, most of which don’t bother to teach students about their civic responsibilities and rights.
I couldn’t agree more, and, I would add that our nation is in a sad state when liberal parents have no idea how to supplement this educational failing, or have no desire to.
Of course, the problem in high schools infected Universities long ago. Indeed, Professor Adams points to UNC’s speech code, calling it illegal and “ludicrous.”
This University, like so many others, thinks it can demand students and professors speak only in “respectful” terms.
The best new ideas are never considered respectful. Our own Founding Fathers were radicals, designing a government run by a free people, who could say anything they like. Despite what liberals think, some of us still want to live by this principle, even when it allows for outrageous speech.
Professor Adams is one such person, and he describes a sentiment laid out in the Declaration of Independence in his syllabus. Apparently, a student gave him trouble for that before, going so far as to call the Department’s Chair, essentially Professor Adam’s boss, to complain.
On this matter, Adams said, “If any of you actually think that my decision to paraphrase the Declaration of Independence in the course syllabus is unconstitutional then you suffer from severe intellectual hernia.”
Finally, we’ve found a professor who is willing to tell it like it is! I hope that his example emboldens more patriots to speak out against political correctness.
