A group of university professors has signed a letter showing their solidarity with students who tried to ban the American flag at the University of California, Irvine – because they said Old Glory contributes to racism.
“U.S. nationalism often contributes to racism and xenophobia, and that the paraphernalia of nationalism is in fact often used to intimidate,” read a letter obtained by the website Campus Reform.
That’s funny, because I have a very strong feeling that those professors (not to mention the moronic students that started this petition) are too stupid/idiotic/mentally challenged to be teaching and therefore should be fired immediately.
It is seeming to be getting to the point that a group of people in this country can just get together and pick some symbol (no matter how innocuous) and come up with some reason to denigrate it.
It is not hard to get the weak minded to then buy into the idea, and another idiot brigade is formed.
Getting academia to latch onto the idea isn’t hard, just for the fact(s) that 1.) I’ve known some really incredibly dumb educators/teachers/professors (along with a bunch of brilliant ones too, no doubt), 2.) Since the really dumb ones rarely get much attention, they tend to like publicity of being attached to a controversial idea, 3.) These numbskulls tend to have a dim view of America because the idea of unbridled freedom is considered a really bad idea to them.
The good news (for these bunch of idiots) is that speaking your mind (regardless of how weak those minds are) is perfectly acceptable. It gives the people of at least average intelligence a good laugh from time to time.
