How To Know You Are Wrong

As I wrote a few days ago in "Can I Teach At UW?" the University of Wisconsin has hired "moonbat" professor Kevin Barrett to teach Islamic studies.

Included in the course will be his one week topic of how the US perpetrated the 9-11 attacks to start a war against Islam.

How should UW know this decision was a bad one, even with all the bluster over 'academic freedom' that has emenated from the chambers of the Chancellor? Easy, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel not only scolds them for the hiring, but defends George Bush.

To understand how important this is, you have to realize that the Journal-Sentinel editorial board claims the sky is green because Bush said it's blue, they claim water is dry because Bush said he got wet swimming, and they've all become vegetarians because George Bush likes steak.

Even a left handed defense of GWB, as they give in todays lead editorial should cause who ever is on the other end of it to figure they've screwed up royally.

To make matters worse, on the same day they printed a second op/ed piece, that's wonderful by the way, on who else UW should start hiring with "unconventional views".

Well, Ward Churchill is going to be out of a job soon (thank the good Lord!), UW could have always hired him. Sounds like he would fit right in there.

In the war for "social justice" (whatever that may be) truth is irrelevant. We may need to start some Patriotic university.

Let's see
Patriots' University of Michigan
Wisconsin Patriotic Univerity
Indiana University for Patriots.

Works however you look at it.

Corie, don't make that type of suggestion, please, they might hire him.

Shoprat, I like the idea. Of course we'll be labeled racists and xenophobes if we do it :)

Great news: the university of Wisconsin has decided to do something good for a change. It has opened a religiously themed dorm on campus. To see the links to the articles come to my blog.

Ward Churchill will continue teaching, and will continue as a full professor until he retires. (he remains as part of the ethnic studies dept. to this day).

This is the world of the extreme left, where you will find a large contingent in the administrations and faculty of most U.S. universities.

Barrett will retire a full professor some day. Hate speech coming from the left is tolerated, encouraged and rewarded in higher education. Insane comments, like those from Barrett and Churchill will only gain them celebrity status.

Freedom of speech is not the issue. If a conservative university professor wanted to teach a course entitled; 'Michael Moore is an idiot,' there would be a national outrage, and the liberals would throw freedom of speech out the window. The only time this type of hatespeech is okay is when it doesn't offend liberals.
