Academic Cancer Continues
A Colorado University prof says those who died in the 9/11 attacks were not innocents, and calls those who directed the planes that day were "combat teams" and not terrorists. This is exactly what's wrong with academia and overly left liberals. Those with no real American spirit and patriotism would say this is good diversity of thought and belongs in our education system. Bullshit! This guy spouts complete lies about our having thrown the first stone, but worse is that this is an attitude of sympathy towards a terrorist who has no clue about history (accurate or otherwise) and has a completely brainwashed and naive understanding of the world. These terrorists have the idea that Americans are evil drilled into their heads. We are not a perfect democracy, we make mistakes, but their has been no American Hitler who has orchestrated the purposeful killing of 100 let alone 500,000 children in the middle east. However, might that be justified under some scenario? You bet, I don't think anyone involved in dropping the bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki felt good about civilians who were about to be vaporized, but in the end that act saved countless lives far beyond the cost. You just have to decide if you want to be on the side who gets to make that choice or not. If you're not with us, you're with them!
