Fliers Posted at UCCS Suggest Banning Veterans from Four Year Universities
“veterans usually are associated with extremists right-wing groups such as the tea party”
Some people on the left are absolutely determined to give Trump a second term. Stuff like this virtually guarantees it will happen.
Truth Revolt has the story:
Campus Flier Suggests Banning Veterans from Four-Year Universities
flier posted on the campus of the University of Colorado Colorado Springs (UCCS) calls for banning military veterans from four-year institutions because they are insensitive, intimidating, gay-bashing right-wing extremists.
The letter is authored by Terry Steinawitz, yet, KKTV couldn’t locate anyone by that name as a citizen of Colorado or a student at UCCS. The newsletter of the “Social Justice Collective Weekly” was not generated by the school, but it did receive approval to be posted on campus.
Here’s the letter in its entirety:
A four-year, traditional university is supposed to be a place of learning, of understanding, of safety and security. However, there is an element among us who may be frustrating these goals: Veterans.
UCCS is known for its number of veterans who are full and part-time students. But these veterans of much of the school prides themselves on may be hurting the university.
First off, many veterans openly mock the ideas of diversity and safe spaces for vulnerable members of society. This is directly in contradiction to the mission of UCCS. Many veterans utter the mantra that they, “do not see color”. But the problem lies in their socialization into the military culture that is that of a white supremacist organization. They have been permanently tainted, and are no long fit for a four-year university.
Second, many students are frightened by the presence of veterans in their classrooms. Veterans usually have an overwhelming presence in the classroom, which can distract other students. This is usually true for vulnerable individual such as LGBTQQI2SAA, who have been known to be the butt of insensitive jokes made by veterans.
Finally, veterans usually are associated with extremists right-wing groups such as the tea party and the NRA. In order to provide a safe place for all students, extremist right-wing groups must be suppressed on campus. This would include their followers: veterans.
That is not to say that veterans should not be allowed an education. Veterans should be allowed to attend trade schools, or maybe even community college. But, in order to protect our academic institutions we must ban veterans from four-year universities.
Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.
if that is verbatim, it is written by someone in desperate need of a jr. high english class. At least the English classes taught 30 years ago when I was in there. I fail to see how that person was ever admitted to a University based on English skills. Do they no longer require well-written essays for admission?
“Veterans usually have an overwhelming presence in the classroom, which can distract other students.”
Really? I couldn’t take my eyes off the tattooed, pink-haired, pierced-17-times gender-neutral person in a skirt; hardly noticed the veteran sitting there.
Clearly the writer should also be banned from a 4 year college, this writing sample wouldn’t qualify for a decent junior high. Bah!
I would give the author of this screed a heart attack. Not only am I a former member of the US Army, but I am also a tenured full professor (with a PhD in a natural science). As a department chair I get to set instructional policy for my department. I proudly display a flag with the US Army crest on it in my office, along with photographs of U.S. Grant and W.T. Sherman. I believe college should be challenging and should make students uncomfortable.
NB: I don’t count myself a veteran because I did not serve in a combat zone.
“A four-year, traditional university is supposed to be a place of learning, of understanding, of safety and security.”
Ummm – NO. A university is supposed to be a place of learning, of challenge, of exploration of new ideas.
“Safety”, “security” and “understanding” really have very little to do with it.
I smell something fishy with this. I would put money on this flier being a fake or a set up.
So they are upset because vets know what is funny? LOL! The snowflakes must really be triggered by the soldiers at Fort Carson. Some of those guys use Pikes Peak to stay in shape. I took the cog railroad like a sane person.
So these precious snowflakes think that those people who put on a uniform and defend the country such that these snowflakes can attend college, have the freedoms they are used to, and so forth, hare no the right people to attend college?
Also, to think that these snowflakes consider the armed services a white supremacist organization???? (“But the problem lies in their socialization into the military culture that is that of a white supremacist organization.”)
“Finally, veterans usually are associated with extremists right-wing groups such as the tea party and the NRA.” So now the Tea Party and the NRA are right wing extremist organizations. Does this mean Christians are soon to follow with this label?
If college is a time to become educated, to expand one’s horizons, to learn about the (real) world, and so forth, then why would they not want veterans present in the classroom for, after all, they have been there and done that in many places outside the US(a.k.a., the real world). If anyone could shed some light upon what the real world is like, then it would be a veteran. Then again, the true heart of the issue is that these snowflakes do not want veterans in the classroom for they will end up showing these snowflakes how the real world in unrelated to the social construct that the snowflakes demand everyone to believe exists. How dare veterans show up and inject reality into the classroom.
