ITHACA COLLEGE PAPERS STOLEN AS "RACIST"
Federal Review ^ | 4/30/05

Posted on 04/30/2005 11:42:39 AM PDT by Behind Liberal Lines

ITHACA, NY—Another college newspaper was stolen and thrown out to protest its “racist” coverage earlier this month.

According to published reports, “hundreds” of copies of the April 21 edition of the Ithacan, the official student newspaper of Ithaca College, were stolen and thrown out that evening.

One of the thieves was later identified, reports indicate. “She said she had been upset with the paper for …what she saw as the lack of coverage of the Erase the Hate rally,” the Ithacan editors reported.

The “Erase the Hate” rally was a billed as a response to a series of “racial slurs” that were written in various places all around Ithaca College earlier in April. “These incidents were preceded by bias-related incidents against Asians, African-Americans and women in February and March,” the Cornell Daily Sun reported.

The student was not the only person on campus who attacked the paper for not giving the rally “sufficient” coverage, the Ithacan noted:

One politics professor was described as “ranting and raving,” alleging the paper was “racist” because The Ithacan did not cover the rally in the print edition and instead covered it online. The paper covered the rally online with more than 30 photos so that students could read about the event that day, rather than waiting a full week.

Ironically, prior to the newspaper theft, organizers of the “Erase the Hate” rally had reportedly billed the event as a way to “look for solutions to deal with intolerance” on the Ithaca campus.

“Newspaper theft is a crime in New York state. The loss of hundreds of copies means lost printing costs, labor costs and revenue from ads readers never saw. It also robs other students of the opportunity to be informed,” the Ithacan reported.

The same month that hundreds of newspapers were stolen on campus, a single “gay pride” flag was also stolen from a flagpole at Ithaca College.

Unlike the theft of the newspapers, the theft of the gay pride flag has generated intense local coverage, both on and off campus, with calls for the perpetrators to be prosecuted.

Yeah, we know how this works--the Campus Commies spray paint the campus then hold a rally decrying their work. Very amusing.

Calling these people liberals is a misuse of the word "liberal". It's like calling homosexuals "gay".

We need a new collective noun to connote people who worship at the altar of big government and practice intolerance. Suggestions?

It used to be that these thought nazis would trash the papers for what they said; now they do it for what the papers don't say. Just when you think the left has sunk as low as they can, they surpass themselves.

That's just crazy. Aren't the media so lucky that returning soldiers don't go and shoot and vandalize their offices and steal their newspapers because they don't cover the war fairly? The rationale of the Tolerance Patrol would legitimize exactly that.

I am so on my way to becoming a curmudgeon in my old age.

Ever notice how the lefty loons literally froth at the mouth when they perceive the the slightest opportunity to launch an attack?

Years ago I heard Rush say that the left is most entertaining when they out of power because they will do and say absolutely anything in order to regain that power. He was right and the proof is the utterly ridiculous comments now coming from the likes of Pelosi, Gore, Reid and the rest of these hysterical fools.

You must have a really good job that keeps you in Ithaca, my friend. I put in my six years at Cornell and was outta there! It's probably been 10 or 12 years since I've been back. (Now if I could just find a way to leave NY State altogether!)

I work with a guy just like that. He was spewing the leftwing crap at work to anybody and everybody before the election and was absolutely dumbstruck when Ketchup Boy lost. I still wish I'd bet him on the election, because it was a sucker bet, and he'd have taken it. I'll never forget the look of dejection he had when Cabana Boy conceded the election. It was all I could do to restrain myself from saying, "I told you so!"

Now, once or twice a week, I'll put Rush on, just because it drives him nuts. ;^)

Socialist works for me. Communist is more direct.

The commies are tiring of the word "progressive" and trying to say that it is "safe" to come out and proudly be a socialist. They share a lot in common with the communist governments of N. Korea, China, Cuba, and Stalin's USSR.

Put them in the rows in your garden to keep weeds down. Pray the theme's don't effup your tomatoes, beans, egg plant, peppers, okra, etc. Mine have done fine for the last three years doing this. The worse the discourse the better my plants do (more paper).

And this is why I am glad that I picked my college. We have some left-liberalism, but not much. The relations between our university and the rest of the community are strained enough that most of the departments police themselves to keep from getting in trouble. The only time in my 4 years here that a bunch of lefties did a protest, it was YDS beating a paper mache model of a missile with a baseball bat. They got laughed at by everyone, even other leftists who had no idea what they were trying to say. Turns out it was supposed to show the "ludicrous nature of trying to oppose violence with violence."

Since that embarassing episode, YDS has kinda been low profile on campus ;)

My Narcotics Anonymous sponsor is an UberLefty, but he's not obnoxious about it, so he's one of the few Leftys I'd let live if I ever took power.

We try to stay off politics, except for the occasional gentle gibe. Besides, there's more important stuff to do -- like trying to save my life!

It reminds me of the episode of All in The Family, in which everyone tells Meathead that all he can ever talk about to people are liberal activist issues, especially when talking to Lionel Jefferson. Meathead can't take the constructive criticism. He really can't take it when they bring up his superior attitude towards Archie.
