College President Defends Professorís Harassment of Young Conservative
Young America's Foundation ^ | November 18, 2005 | Editorial

Posted on 11/20/2005 2:11:07 PM PST by CometBaby

HERNDON, VA –Young America’s Foundation exposed Warren Community College’s radical Professor John Daly, who in an email to student Rebecca Beach, vowed to intimidate those students who host conservative speakers and called for American soldiers in Iraq to murder their superiors.

Instead of admonishing the professor’s intemperate attack on a student’s right of free expression, Warren Community College President William Austin said Prof. John Daly has “first amendment rights” to harass Rebecca. Furthermore, the President is trying to bully Rebecca into silence. He said Rebecca, not Prof. John Daly, is ruining the college’s name by going on talk radio and television exposing Daly’s mean spirited email.

In an interview with the Express-Times, a local New Jersey paper, Daly stood by his email to Rebecca. He told the paper that Rebecca’s conservative group is an “ultra right-wing, possibly fascist, group.”

Daly’s email to Rebecca came after she sent a note to faculty announcing the appearance of decorated war hero Lt. Col. Scott Rutter to discuss America’s accomplishments in Iraq.

Daly’s unedited email can be read in full below.

“Prof. John Daly knowingly intimidated one of his students. That’s not protected by the First Amendment,” said Jason Mattera, spokesman for Young America’s Foundation. “It was poor judgment to hire Daly to begin with. Warren Community College compounds their ineptitude by defending Daly’s harassment of Rebecca.”

This is absolutely shocking!! Everyone needs to be made aware of this.

A bit further down they have a complete transcript of the original email he sent to her, in which he says, "I will continue to expose your right-wing, anti-people politics until groups like your won't dare show their face on a college campus."

Man, if I were a law firm I would grab her up and sue them for millions of dollars for misusing their position of power over the students.

It's going just exactly the way I said it would.

Only anti-American Leftists have freedom of speech on campus, people. Everything they say, no matter how evil or mean-spirited, is "free speech." And when we call them on it, it's "hate speech."

A tradition that goes back at least as far as the so-called Berkeley Free Speech Movement, where no conservatives were allowed to speak.

I note that he said "a college campus" and not just "our college campus". This was one sick individual for sure.

He should be fired.

Well, no, it's not shocking, actually. That's the sad part of the whole thing. It's commonplace behavior for the campus radicals, be they professors or students. Also commonplace is for the administration of these indoctrination facilities to scream bloody murder when their actions are brought to the public. Notice the administrator says the professor has "first amendment rights" to harrass the student, but never once mentions the students rights.

I hope Ms. Beach has the stength and courage to stand up to this attack. The leftists are like vampires... the best way to defeat them is to expose them to the light of day. The more she calls attention to their actions, the hotter it'll get for her, until it reaches a breaking point. More power to her and her fight.

Cause of action for civil rights violation? Who is her congresscritter?

The university is our next battleground for conservatism.

Ever notice how people take great exception to the charge that university campuses across the nation tilt extremely to the left? Yet guys like this and Ward Churchill are almost impossible to get rid of.

I believe he has been FReeped! This is our County College and on Monday I'm planning on placing a few calls to the Board of Chosen Freeholders. Thursday I emailed the President of WCCC and as of today I haven't received a reply. Hannity has challenged this Daly clown to a debate at the College. We will see what happens next.

That is abuse of the children that do not mirror their leftist views. This is an abuse of power they can't get away from while at school.
That is educational rape.

Sue their butts off.

If you want to count the number of deaths based on political systems, you can begin with the more than a million children who have died in Iraq from U.S.-imposed sanctions and war. Or the million African American people who died from lack of access to healthcare in the US over the last 10 years.

Here's your leftist crack-smoker in his full glory. This time tomorrow, WCCC's e-mail server will be shut down from the e-mail traffic and I won't feel the slightest bit sorry about contributing my 2 or 3 e-mailed letters to it.

Yes, call her conservative group 'fascist' while engaging in fascist activity.

Should this be called 'projection' or an 'operational fallacy'? Hmmm...

Last time I checked, the First Amendment wasn't the private possession of college Presidents to dole out as personally seen fit.
