The saddest truth in politics is that people get the leaders they deserve

I can’t imagine why people hate liberal academics

Our college-age children are in the best of hands.

Michael Avery, a professor at Suffolk University Law School, sent a five-paragraph email to colleagues in response to a school-wide appeal for care packages for deployed soldiers, Fox affiliate WFXT-TV reports.

“I think it is shameful that it is perceived as legitimate to solicit in an academic institution for support for men and women who have gone overseas to kill other human beings,” Avery wrote.

The professor, who specializes in constitutional law, wrote the email last week in response to a university drive to collect items for U.S. troops, like sunblock and sanitary products. He also wrote that sympathy for American troops in harm’s way is “not particularly rational in today’s world.”

You know what else would be shameful? Spending money to have your aspiring scholar educated by such a poisonous creature at Suffolk University.

    There has long been a story going round (perhaps started by Yuri Bezamov) claiming that the Russkies wanted to infiltrate our academia. They were to have principally targeted journalism and teacher colleges. Stories like this cause me to consider the stories plausible.

    I do not know exactly where Suffolk University or its Law School are located – nor, based upon this bit of information, do I particularly want to know – but I would say that it does appear to have regrettably bad taste in some of the teaching personnel it currently tolerates.

    I think it is shameful that it is perceived as legitimate to allow a moron named Michael Avery to spew his vile poison in the general direction of anyone at all, much less the staff and student body at an alleged educational institution. In today’s world, his drivelings are clearly irrational at best.
