Professors Compare Pro-Life Students to Lynch Mob
FoxNews.com ^ | 4-17-2013 | Todd Starnes

Posted on 04/17/2013 12:48:21 PM PDT by topher

Pro-Life students at the University of Buffalo came under fierce attack by a group of professors who compared them to a lynch mob. At least one professor was arrested after she launched a profanity-laced tirade directed toward the students.

The professors were outraged after the Students for Life club received permission to display a pro-life exhibit that included graphic images of abortion victims along with Holocaust victims and victims of lynching.

A half dozen history professors condemned the display in a letter to the student newspaper.

“Anti-abortion protesters appear to have a lot in common with those who supported lynching,” they wrote in the school paper. “We feel it is imperative to speak out against this crass, uninformed and dangerous misuse of history.”

Whenever talking about this incident,
it must be stated that the reaction of the “instructor”

is that of a guilty person confronted with her guilt.

She’s post-abortive, guilty, and desires no reminders of her guilt.

When someone pulls a tirade like that, it is usually an indication that she has had at least one abortion herself.

Pro-lifers need to pray for people like her.

I’m surprised that the tirade by these learned “professors” hasn’t run afoul of hate speech guidelines at the University of Buffalo.

Please, please.

Liberal arts “Professors” of the types that are doing this type of accusation are most certainly not real professors (in the traditional sense), but are sub-prime mental types who have received a toy degree following a joke education. Example: Bill Ayers.

As such, these “professor”s would be fired from McDonalds for incompetence and hold positions only due to the complete lack of standards in the liberal arts sections of the vast majority of our universities.

“Who would allow such evil people to indoctrinate their children? Only the lazy and totally immoral.”

A conservative friend, at age 55, decided to get his K-5 certificate. Quit his job as VP of a steel company and went to school. He was taught how to indoctrinate kids with some weird hippy, Zen, green, liberal bizarreness. It was very ‘60’s anti-war (as Bush was in office.)He kept his mouth shut as he’d never have graduated if they had any idea he was conservative. He just nodded his head in time with the others.

a lynch mob victim sometimes at least got a show trial.

the unborn don’t even get that. ironiclally, the targets of abortionists and lynch mobs is overwhelmingly the same race.

You would be shocked at the shoddy scholarship and what passes for a PhD thesis in the humanities these days. American universities and colleges are in decline and will never improve as long as taxpayer supported tenure is the norm at most institutions.

“Anti-abortion protesters appear to have a lot in common with those who supported lynching,”
So those that want to respect,cherish and save lives have a lot in common with murderers? Where did this putz get their degree, the University of Reverse Thought? Well I have always heard “Those who can do, those who can’t teach”. I have no desire to insult the many fine Teachers out there, simply saying that in this case...

The history prof who likened pro lifers to a lynch mob was not far off target. Crimes so heinous they inflame local communities are the seed of citizens taking the law into their own hands. In this case, however, the lynchers are saving the lives of infants before they get to the abortionist’s abattoir.

Ah, so you people WHO SUPPORT KILLING BABIES compare the people WHO SUPPORT **SAVING** BABIES to those who lynch?

Repent, you propagandists of Hell. For your own sake, repent of these damnable lies.

The pro abortion profs think it’s ok to end them.

“one professor was arrested after she launched a profanity-laced tirade”

The curious part was when she started using obscene language to object that the display as an obscenity because of it's graphic depiction of abortion.

Which was exactly what the pro-life group intended to depict.
The students were saying that abortion was obscene.
The professor was saying that the display was obscene.

They obviously don’t believe that. They just are afraid of the wrath of militant man-hating fang tooth feminazis. They know what happens to men who deny them their precious abortion.

Sarah Weddington began her abortion crusade because she had to go to Mexico to get her abortion. The whole pro-choice movement was caused by repressed rage against the comfortable life they enjoyed growing up middle-class families. They hated themselves because they had no personal reason to feel oppressed untill they had to get an abortion.

On the bright side, these retarded 'professors' are doing nature a big favor whenever they remove their 'superior' selves from the gene pool through contraception/abortion.

Genes for compassion get multiplied because compassionate people don't murder their own young. That's pretty much the only reason our species hasn't gone completely extinct yet. Sadly, our advanced society allows merciless idiots to have cushy academic jobs instead of starving to death.

I'm sure industries are lining up to hire kids who can't do anything other than write about how their sex lives are 'empowering'. Meanwhile, the parents get rewarded with having selfish idiot children destroying the house and ruining their retirement years.

It is a supreme irony that these professors compare the Pro-Life students to an anti-black lynch mob in view of the fact that Margaret Sanger founded Planned Parenthood in large part to abort black babies and ensure the white purity of the racial profile of America.

a lynch mob victim sometimes at least got a show trial.

The victims of lynch mobs were often, perhaps most of the time, guilty and deserved execution.

From 1880 to 1960 there were a total of roughly 5,000 lynchings, of whom about 2/3 the victims were black and 1/3 white.

I was actually surprised when I discovered these numbers, because I had always assume the number were much higher. That's an average of about 60 per year. In a country the size of the USA, that's not a huge number, as mass (mostly) ethnic murders go.

And in that statement, you hit the crux of the issue.

I would think that, at the end, a person looks back and says "What did I accomplish?" I'd like to think that 100 years from now, my grandkids will be telling their grandkids all about "Grandpa WBill! Lemme tell ya about these pancakes he made on Saturday mornings!! He'd make them, and then we'd go fishing and...." and so on....

Whereas this harpy's legacy will be all of 2 inches in next Wednesday's Police Beat.

I'd be angry constantly if that was all I had to look forward to, as well.

When I worked at a pro-life women's center I ran into some information put out by the Guttmacher Institute.

They did research on what percentage of women could be easily talked into an abortion.

They found that 10% would get an abortion regardless of whether it was legal or not.

Ninety percent hesitated and had to be talked into having an abortion, so they devised tactics to make that 90% comply.

The center I worked at concentrated on that 90% who "had to be talked into an abortion," and we helped them to bring their baby into the world.

My point is that most women are essentially horse-collared into getting the procedure through a sales job and intimidation at a time when a woman should not make any huge decisions.

The Sarah Weddington's of the world are part of that 10% who would get an abortion no matter what.

Which leaves the vast 90% at the mercy of men like Kermitt Gosnell.

I have searched the Guttmacher website for their research about the 10%-90% and there is no trace of it.

The studeents should sue the the professors for defamation of character. The students are not public figures and are therefore able to pursue such a remedy. There is NO reasonable connection between opposing abortion and supporting lynching of racial minorities.

One can only hope that she sees the harm she has done before she reaches that end. She and her husband once gave me a ride back to Simkins dorm from Scholz’s way back when. They, a friend and were talking politics—about the war— for a short while. I had forgotten their name until much later when my friend reminded me. They and a colleague of his were sitting with them when I had sat down. My friend said they had thought me strange. Which I was—and am,but I remember nothing about my conversation with them.
