8. Nothing is Right at Wright State University – the arrogance of the leftist nutty professor
There is a reason that college campuses are pretty much the only place where firestorms regularly ignite over something as stupid as waffles or chickpeas, and it’s got a whole lot to do with the inmates who are running these asylums – the professoriate. Rogue professor (and national columnist) Mike Adams recently profiled a brave dissenter, like Adams himself. Professor William Irvine teaches philosophy at Wright State and recently weighed in on his school’s decision to invite the Reverend Jeremiah Wright to campus (despite the name share, there is no relation, I assume, between Wright State and the race-baiting hater preacher).
Professor Irvine welcomed Reverend Wright to campus, because he “believes that a university should be a marketplace of ideas.” But he went on to note that the marketplace is “curiously one-sided in the speakers it brings to campus.” People like the Reverend Wright (“God Damn America”) and Angela Davis (she bought guns used by her friends to kill a judge and was a fugitive on the FBI’s most wanted list) have been invited and, as Adams says, “paid to speak on campus at considerable expense to the taxpayer.”
So, Professor Irvine suggested to his colleagues that the university should invite some conservatives. One colleague responded by saying, “You mean someone like Glenn Beck?” As Adams succinctly puts it,
“This kind of reaction shows how off-center our universities have become. What educated person could consider Glenn Beck to be more extreme than Angela Davis? Another professor reacted to Irvine’s reasonable suggestion by saying that it wouldn’t be a good idea to bring any Holocaust deniers to campus. The statement is an odd one indeed. It suggests that most conservatives refuse to accept the Holocaust as fact.”
There are INDEED people who reject the Holocaust as fact, but they aren’t conservatives. In fact, nutty professors, you welcomed one of them to one of our “top” colleges just a few years back! Remember?
Now we know where the term “absent-minded professor” comes from. These guys are literally absent a mind.
