I read her book. I can’t help but wonder just how much the complainers really know of her and her story.
The fact that Brandeis tried to give this worthless wench any kind of honor speaks loudly about their (total lack of) academic standards.
Remember, at Brandeis, 2 + 2 = 6 (for large values of 2, as 2 approaches 3).
At least their student body rose out of their liberal lethargy long enough to object. Kudos to them.
Like most Libs, at their core they have variables, subject to change based on all sorts of conditions and emotions.
Everyone else is at the bottom of the pile.
You notice that she is a minority female who is an academic free thinker.
The opponents to the muhammadan treatment of women, gays, blacks, orientals and academics who are freethinkers is not only ignored but actually denounced.
Gee... it’s ALMOST like liberals are conspiring, at all levels throughout society...
Nah... must be coincidence. Can’t be... nope....
She should consider it “a badge of honor” to have this happen to her. By this happening, it raises her overall story to an even higher visibility in the world. Besides, who in their right mind would want any kind of honorary degree/recognition from a liberal left-wing, communist-indoctrinating institution with little, or no, real core values to start with???
Just wait until these morons discover how all their relentless “tolerance” and kowtowing to the Islamicists will be repaid in the future.
Do they realize that in Iran no one has time to discuss issues like gay marriage because they are too busy publicly hanging homosexuals?
(rewriting a little of the article for clarity)
Brandeis University in Massachusetts announced Tuesday that it had withdrawn the planned awarding of an honorary degree to Frederick Douglass, a staunch critic of slavery and its treatment of blacks, after protests from students and faculty.
“He is a compelling public figure and opponent to slavery, and we respect and appreciate his work to protect and defend the rights of slaves throughout the world,” said the university’s statement. “That said, we cannot overlook certain of his past statements that are inconsistent with Brandeis University’s core values.”
More than 85 pro-slavery of about 350 faculty members at Brandeis signed a letter asking for Douglass to be removed from the list of honorary degree recipients. And an online petition created Monday by students at the school of 5,800 had gathered thousands of signatures from inside and outside the university as of Tuesday afternoon.
“This is a real slap in the face to southern students,” said senior Calvin Candie, a member of the Anti-Negro League, who created the petition said before the university withdrew the honor.
“But it’s not just the southern community that is upset but all pro-slavery students and faculty,” she said. “A university that prides itself on the quality of its chattels and the right to property should not hold up someone who is an outright abolitionist.”
But George Fitzhugh, a spokesman for the Council on Promulgation of Involuntary Servitude, the nation’s largest slavery advocacy group, said, “It is unconscionable that such a prestigious university would honor someone with such openly hateful views.”
This is as cowardly an act as Mozilla’s. One gives in to muslin terrorists the other to the gay fascists.
Gee, I wonder what Brandeis alum Abbie Hoffman would think? I guess its tough to know what the STEAL THIS BOOK yippie would think about this issue but he would probably come down on the Muzzie side. Too bad he took those 150 phenobarbitol capsules or maybe he would be here to tell us.
Libs high fiving each other and calling her a right wing islamophobic pig.
She’s an atheist. Surely that counts for extra points.
