The "Tolerance" Of The Left
Friday, November 18, 2005
The intelligence (or lack thereof) of people amazes me. The quote below links to an article about an email a New Jersey professor sent to one of his students.

"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."

Not sure how long this press release is going to stay up from the College but when you go to their website it first takes you to this:
Press Release
November 17, 2005

Warren County Community College is a "students first" college where learning without limits is always the main goal. We maintain a mission of building a community of learners through accessible, quality learning opportunities designed to meet personal aspirations for all students.

It has been brought to the administration's attention that a part-time instructor, Mr. John Daly, speaking for himself and using his personal email, sent a message to a student representing the Young Americans for Freedom in response to a personal email from her requesting him to announce an upcoming event on the campus. Mr Daly responded to her alone, and expressed his own personal views regarding his beliefs about this group.

The viewpoints of this professor in no way depict the views of Warren County Community College, its administration, or the Board of Trustees. The College does however support the constitution, the first amendment, and the right to free speech.

Additionally, Mr. Daly's message was sent as a one-to-one message, via e-mail, to one person, and not to the college community. Finally, the College is viewing this message as a personnel issue and will be addressing it according to the policies and procedures of the College.

Dr. Austin, college president stated, "I firmly believe every employee and student has first amendment rights, no matter how repugnant I personally find Mr. Daly's statements. Our attorneys have advised us of our obligation to follow state laws, board policies, and college due process in regards to any personnel matter. We are now investigating this matter further."

The school's website. You probably won't find anything on the site but I thought the school's response interesting.

    I would like to say that the professor has gone haywire, but sadly I believe he reflects what most others in academia would believe. Their love for "tolerance" has made them the most intolerant. They have become the thing they hate!
