Professors should be lauded who maintain thier commitment to principles despite enormous pressure to render a recantation. Your post sounds just as vituperative as my e-mail.
University administrators should validate nonconformity and passion that emanates from moral acts of conscience. If you want peace, reduce armaments, stop lying to the American people about WMD, end the arms race, reduce the militarisation of American society. Emerson wrote, "A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of small minds" but I think it somewhat inconsistent for you to disagree with my tone of communication and yet adopt it for yourself. I need to show the public that those of us who denounce American imperialism and war will not tolerate the persecution of their beliefs or egregious suspensions intended to satisfy the ravings of public opinion. I would defend YOUR right to attack me and denounce me. The anger against me was due to my beliefs sir, not my lashing out at the cadet.
AAUP is correct when it delimits suspension only when immediate harm is likely to occur. I will not be silenced; oh no, I am a war resister and I will be heard!! Xavier's web page calls the "scenic neighborhood of Mt. It is outrageous that a professor would insult the values and beliefs of those who brought the school into being.
The fact that this behavior is condoned by the administration of SXU is more appalling than Kirstein's behavior.
I am quite sure you do support those whom I consider protagonists which is why this country is worth fighting for in the realm of ideas and justice. Your ideological posture wants to purge those of us that oppose racism, imperialism, obscene militarism and a transformation of this violent nation into silence.I only wish the incident had happened earlier in my life.I don't know how the other Hot Seaters have fared, but I can tell you this event changed my life and only for the better.You tried to cut someone down to size when they asked you to possibly make some copies of a flyer if you had time.All of this to make yourself appear to be superior. You are the sick individual who can not complete a paragraph without telling us about some stupid award you have won or basing your patriotism on the fact that your dad was an Army Captain.
