There is a sickness on our college campuses. It is manifesting itself through the worst kind of hate speech. Today the Oregon University Daily Emerald published a column titled “Ten Reasons Not to Kill President Bush” by Jennifer McBride. Thus campus hatred is magnified by Ms. McBride and perpetuated by irresponsible journalism professors.
Has free speech degenerated into this? One would hope that journalism professors would provide adult supervision but apparenlty they've totally abdicated their responsibilities. Is this really what parents want their children to the University of Oregon to learn? I'd be willing to bet University of Oregon journalism professors encouraged this kind verb-twisting suggestion that an American President be assassinated.
The left finds nothing wrong in this kind of speech. But If I were to proposed an article entitled “Ten Reasons Not to Kill Hillary Clinton” you can imagine the Michael Moore Democrats crawling out from under their personal rocks to suggest I be drawn and quartered.
As a parent are you willing to pay the University of Oregon your hard earned money to indoctrinate your children with this kind of hate? Even if you’re a Democrat would you remain silent if this were directed at a national Democrat figure? Is this the level of discourse we really want to encourage in College.
