A Leftist Professor Strikes Again By Nick Bahl FrontPageMagazine.com | January 23, 2004

I am a 22-year-old senior planning to graduate with a journalism degree and a political science minor from Metropolitan State College in Denver this May. This past semester I took a class called Latin American Politics taught by Dr. Oneida Meranto, a political science professor at Metro State. When I registered for Dr. Meranto’s class, I didn’t know what I was in for.

During the past semester Dr. Meranto has wrongfully dropped me from her class; threatened to throw a campus Republican group that I belonged to out of an academic student association; threatened to sue me for taping the public meeting where this incident occurred; threatened to sue the student newspaper for what I wrote about my experiences with her; illegally revealed my grades—and that of another student in her class—to the public; lied about those grades; filed a formal complaint with the college against me containing false information in an effort to punish me; asked for my removal from the school newspaper; and asked that the school not allow me to graduate with a minor in political science.

I find the intellectual courage of this young man very worthy indeed. The open persecution of students who resist indoctrination is intolerable. Dr. Oneida Meranto, a public employee, is way off base with her attempts to punish and coerce this student. Such un-American suppression of thought cannot stand at a taxpayer supported state university. I think he merits sustained FReeper tactical air support. To that end, the appropriate contacts are listed below. Let's light 'em up!

I just joined the College Republicans at my school the other day.

I have a sinking feeling I will be flogged (literally) before the semester is over. I'm considering taking a class in Ninjitsu.

She is, it appears, a discliple of Commie revolutionary Che Guevarra. She probably keeps her Castro picture at home for safe keeping.
