Academia: Indoctinate the Children Well
A Seattle woman, who fought allowing military recruiters in local high schools, is the lead author of a report that compares the behaviors of recruiters with the behaviors of sexual predators.This is the same University of Washington that refused to honor Gregory "Pappy" Boyington a few years ago. Here are some quotes by the products of academia on why they wouldn't support a memorial to an alumnus who had received the Medal of Honor:
Amy Hagopian, assistant professor with the University of Washington's Department of Global Health concludes military recruiters are a "threat to the health of adolescents."
The UW published this report [since consigned to the Memory Hole] about Hagopian's research, done with Kathy Barker, PhD. It is presented as a commentary in the January 2011 edition of the American Journal of Public Health, under the title "Should We End Military Recruiting in High Schools as a Matter of Child Protection and Public Health?"
Jill Edwards stated, "didn't believe a member of the U.S. Marine Corps was an example of the sort of person UW wanted to produce." [Emphasis added]Academia leaves no doubt that the above is the kind of "thinking" they wish to inculcate and that they reward. Cleaning up the academic sewer should be of the highest priority for the Republican Party, the Tea Party movement, and all decent Americans.
Ashley Miller added "that many monuments at UW already commemorate rich white men." On her webpage Miller bloviates "Educating Foster an inclusive environment by addressing and working to overcome institutionalized racism, homophobia, and sexism, which are often overlooked on campus. "
Karl Smith continued, "the resolution should commend Colonel Boyington's service, not his killing of others."
