"The University of Washington's student senate rejected a memorial for alumnus Gregory "Pappy" Boyington of "Black Sheep Squadron" fame amid concerns a military hero who shot down enemy planes was not the right kind of person to represent the school."
Student senator Jill Edwards, according to minutes of the student government's meeting last week, said she "didn't believe a member of the Marine Corps was an example of the sort of person UW wanted to produce."
How sad that what is supposed to be a “great” university is in reality a politically correct hack factory.
Your hateful student senate members who voted to label Pappy Boyington as an example of everything bad at your so-called university owe their very freedom to be stupid, to men like him.
What are your university professors teaching, that terrorism, Nazism or communism is good? This vote sure represents the retardation of these ungrateful overly pampered university children. Are they too stupid to even understand the history of the viciousness he suffered at the hands of the Japanese for their self-indulgent self-righteous idiocy?
Those students who voted to make this decision are NOT worthy to kiss the dirt on the bottom of Boyington shoes, much less make judgements about his service to this country and the freedom he provided.
What a PIG of a University with students to match. If the Alumni of the University of Washington don’t withdraw all financial support and donations to the university, they too join the intellectually-challenged members in the pathetic student senate.
