Posted on 11/18/2005 2:19:09 PM PST by jodiluvshoes
This is the nasty professor who went after this female freshman for inviting Scott Rutter to speak at their local community college. The professor went on to say that our soldiers should execute their commanding officers in Iraq.
Rebecca Beach, the student involved, told her side of the story today in New York on Kevin McCullough's show. She is slated to be on Hannity and Colmes tonight .
(Excerpt) Read more at muscleheadrevolution.com ...
she was just on the radio...did not have a lawyer ...YET
I wonder how this prof would feel if someone suggested that college students frag their liberal professors?
She's been all over the place for the last 24 hours.
She is one very sharp 19 year old. I see a political future for this young lady.
Just heard her on Hannity. One of those days I wish I had cable so I could see H & L tonight. Someone please give a good report! Please.

College Professor to Student: Real Freedom will come when American Soldiers Murder Superiors

HERNDON, VA Warren Community College English professor, John Daly, said that Real freedom will come when soldiers in Iraq turn their guns on their superiors. Rebecca Beach, a freshman at Warren Community College in Washington, New Jersey, received this unexpected reply to a recent email she sent the faculty at her school announcing the appearance of decorated Iraq war hero, Lt. Col. Scott Rutter, on Thursday, November 17 to discuss Americas accomplishments in Iraq.
In the email, Daly told Rebecca that he will ask students in his English and writing classes to boycott the event and also vowed to expose [her] right-wing, anti-people politics until groups like [Rebeccas] wont dare show their face on a college campus. Dalys mean spirited and hateful comments were directed at Rebecca for organizing Lt. Col. Scott Rutter and for hanging up fliers contrasting the number of people killed under communism to those liberated under Ronald Reagan.
Since Professor John Daly has created a hostile learning environment for Rebecca, she is demanding that Warren Community College President William Austin institute seminars on free speech and sensitivity to teach intolerant leftists, such as Daly, to be respectful of differing opinion
Dalys insane email to Rebecca also claimed that CAPTIALISM has killed many more people than communism [emphasis his] and that the poor and working class people are recruited to fight and die for EXXON and other corporations.
John Daly was hired to teach English, not to verbally attack students and lead leftist protests, said Jason Mattera, spokesman for Young Americas Foundation.
The full unedited text of Dalys email follows.
November 13, 2005
I am asking my students to boycott your event. I am also going to ask others to boycott it. Your literature and signs in the entrance lobby look like fascist propaganda and is extremely offensive. Your main poster "Communism killed 100,000,000" is not only untrue, but ignores the fact that CAPITALISM has killed many more and the evidence for that can be seen in the daily news papers. The U.S. government can fly to dominate the people of Iraq in 12 hours, yet it took them five days to assist the people devastated by huricane Katrina. Racism and profits were key to their priorities. Exxon, by the way, made $9 Billion in profits this last quarter--their highest proft margin ever. Thanks to the students of WCCC and other poor and working class people who are recruited to fight and die for EXXON and other corporations who earning megaprofits from their imperialist plunders. If you want to count the number of deaths based on political systems, you can begin with the more than a million children who have died in Iraq from U.S.-imposed sanctions and war. Or the million African American people who died from lack of access to healthcare in the US over the last 10 years.
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. Real freedom will come when soldiers in Iraq turn their guns on their superiors and fight for just causes and for people's needs--such freedom fighters can be counted throughout American history and they certainly will be counted again.
Prof. John Daly
Isn't Tenure great?
Keep sending emails, forwarding to friends, and calling... this is beginning to gather steam on a national level. In the (imagined) words of (that commie bastard) John Daly, uh..... SOLIDARITY! Solidarity to get this DUmmy fired, that is.
Dr William Austin, college prez: email@example.com
Assorted Profs and State Board of Education Members:
Board of Trustees:
I agree with everything she is doing, but why would she need a lawyer at this time? She has not been injured or suffered any damages, yet.
My Virginia taxes are paying for this buffoon? I really have to write my local state legislator.
Oh...he has every right to his views, but by God, he had better allow everyone else their's.
This little scumbag better never meet me in public...
Clint N. Suhks? A pal of Hilla Reswalos?
The English professor wrote this sentence?
Your literature and signs in the entrance lobby look like fascist propaganda and is extremely offensive.
I accuse him of murdering the English language as he should know about subject verb agreement!
He's not merely "nasty," he is evil. Certainly there will not be "real" academic freedom, and "real" intellectual freedom of thought, as long as brainwashed leftists like this run rampant on campuses.
I just checked out the Warren County Community College website. Either this scumbag professor doesn't have an e-mail address, or they've taken it down temporarily.
Based on the addresses of some of the other faculty, however, I'm guessing that it would be firstname.lastname@example.org, or email@example.com
If this had happened to a black student, the ACLU would be all over it like white on rice. They're violating their own Anti-Harassment policy, not to mention her civil and Constitutionally-guaranteed rights.
Warren Community College Anti-Harassment Policy
It is the responsibility of everyone (trustees, faculty, administrators, staff, students and visitors) to maintain an academic/work environment free from harassment of any kind whatsoever for all students, faculty, staff, and visitors. Students and all College personnel are required to maintain an environment that allows students, faculty and staff to enjoy the full benefits of their learning and/or work experience. The use of implicit or explicit sexual attention or other discriminatory behavior to control, influence, or affect the performance or status of an individual is unacceptable and will not be tolerated. It is the responsibility of all (trustees, faculty, administrators, staff and students) to be knowledgeable about sexual harassment and discriminatory behavior, the College policy against behavior, and to inform the Director of Human Resources (Sharon Hintz), who is the Colleges designated Compliance Officer, any manager or supervisor of any and all allegations of sexual harassment or discriminatory behavior received or observed. Prompt reporting will allow reasonable steps to be taken to investigate and remediate the situation. Any student, faculty member, staff, administrative employee, trustee or visitor to the College, determined to have violated this Anti-harassment Policy will be subject to immediate and appropriate disciplinary sanctions. Sanctions for employees may include oral reprimand, written reprimand, probation, suspension (with or without pay), or dismissal from employment. Sanctions for students may include a warning notice, probation, suspension, or expulsion. Non-employees who violate this Policy may be subject to partial or full restriction of their use of the College facilities and access to the campus. The College reserves sole discretion regarding the imposition, enforcement and severity of any disciplinary action taken.
This Policy refers to, but is not limited to, harassment for the following reasons: (1) Age, (2) Race, (3) Ancestry, (4) National Origin, (5) Religion, (6) Gender, (7) Affectational or Sexual Orientation, (8) Marital Status, (9) Handicap, (10) Creed, (11) Engagement in protected activity, (12) Veterans Status, or (13) Sex or atypical hereditary cellular or blood trait of any individual; and any other protected category to be subsequently included in the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination. Harassment shall include words or behaviors or the display or circulation of written materials or pictures degrading individuals or members of any protected category as listed herein. Any harassment whatsoever of Warren County Community Colleges students, faculty, staff or trustees by other members of the Colleges student body, faculty, staff or trustees will not be permitted, regardless of the relationship whether on or off campus. Such behavior undermines the employment relationship and educational atmosphere by potentially creating an intimidating, hostile, or offensive work environment and will not be tolerated by Warren County Community College.
Has Rush made any mention of this yet?
no amount of higher education is a cure for a congenital bum.
Just look at the Congress.
John Daly's email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
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."
Rush is on vacation this week. He's back on Monday.
Of course, all FReepers know the background of Internaional ANSWER.
ANSWER is run by Workers World Party (WWP) activists to such an extent that it seems fair to dub it a WWP front. Several key ANSWER officials including spokesperson Brian Becker are WWP members. Many local offices for ANSWERs war protests have been housed in WWP offices. In 2002, when ANSWER conducted a press briefing, at least five of the 13 speakers were WWP activists. They were each identified, though, in other ways, including as members of the International Action Center.
What is the Workers World Party? It is a small political sect that years ago split from the Socialist Workers Party to support the Soviet invasion of Hungary in 1956. The party advocates socialist revolution and abolishing private property. It is a fan of Fidel Castros regime in Cuba, and it hails North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Il for preserving his countrys socialist system, which, according to the partys newspaper, has kept North Korea from falling under the sway of the transnational banks and corporations that dictate to most of the world. The WWP has campaigned against the war-crimes trial of former Yugoslav President Slobodan Milosevic. A 2002 Workers World editorial declared, Iraq has done absolutely nothing wrong.
The ad hominem attacks upon this fine young woman by this vile ultra-leftist, anti-American socialist are despicable. Why scum such as this are allowed to teach our young is beyond me.
Rush is on vacation. Isn't she gonna be on Seanity and an Idiot tonight?
This "prof" is bogus. Oh, wait! I'm Bogus!
I just looked through 12 pages of DU posts/rants. Not a peep about this story. And I doubt they will mention it there at all. LOL
From the speech and writing of our recent interns, I'm not surprised this is what college English teachers are doing instead of teaching English.
Text of my letters sent this morning:
Dr. Austin et al,
I am writing to express my regret at the lack of brevity with which your college is responding to Mr. John Daly's threatening of one of your freshman students. To wit, let me revisit your college's "statement" issued yesterday.
-"It has been brought to the administration's attention that a part-time instructor, Mr. John Daly, speaking for himself...""Mr Daly responded to her alone..."-
He was absolutely not speaking for himself... "I am asking my students to boycott your event. I am also going to ask others to boycott it."
-"The College does however support the constitution, the first amendment, and the right to free speech."-
I am glad that you have decided to uphold the federal laws of the United States. Rebecca Beach was attempting to excercise her First Amendment rights, and Mr. Daly was clearly attempting to intimidate her into silence.
"I will continue to expose your right-wing, anti-people politics until groups like yours won't dare show their face on a college campus."
Additionally, Mr. Daly attempts to further reinforce his message with this cowardly, ignorant advocation for the murder of US soldiers: "Real freedom will come when soldiers in Iraq turn their guns on their superiors..." There is no doubt this was included to get his point across, as Ms. Beach's guest speaker was decorated Iraq war hero Lt. Col. Scott Rutter, who was coming to your college to discuss Americas accomplishments in Iraq.
-"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."-
From your college's own "Anti-Harassment Code":
(inserted A-H code here)
-"Our attorneys have advised us of our obligation to follow state laws, board policies, and college due process in regards to any personnel matter."-
Excellent advice. I might also advise you of the federal statute regarding sedition. A judge may or may not link this definition with Mr. Daly's promotion of the murder of uniformed members of the armed services, but Mr. Daly certainly seems to think the time is right for revolt against the government.
"Real freedom will come when soldiers in Iraq turn their guns on their superiors and fight for just causes and for people's needs--such freedom fighters can be counted throughout American history and they certainly will be counted again."
§ 2385. Advocating overthrow of Government
Whoever knowingly or willfully advocates, abets, advises, or teaches the duty, necessity, desirability, or propriety of overthrowing or destroying the government of the United States or the government of any State, Territory, District or Possession thereof, or the government of any political subdivision therein, by force or violence, or by the assassination of any officer of any such government; or
Whoever, with intent to cause the overthrow or destruction of any such government, prints, publishes, edits, issues, circulates, sells, distributes, or publicly displays any written or printed matter advocating, advising, or teaching the duty, necessity, desirability, or propriety of overthrowing or destroying any government in the United States by force or violence, or attempts to do so; or
Whoever organizes or helps or attempts to organize any society, group, or assembly of persons who teach, advocate, or encourage the overthrow or destruction of any such government by force or violence; or becomes or is a member of, or affiliates with, any such society, group, or assembly of persons, knowing the purposes thereof
Shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both, and shall be ineligible for employment by the United States or any department or agency thereof, for the five years next following his conviction.
If two or more persons conspire to commit any offense named in this section, each shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both, and shall be ineligible for employment by the United States or any department or agency thereof, for the five years next following his conviction.
As used in this section, the terms organizes and organize, with respect to any society, group, or assembly of persons, include the recruiting of new members, the forming of new units, and the regrouping or expansion of existing clubs, classes, and other units of such society, group, or assembly of persons.
To underestimate the significance and gravity of this situation, both on a local and national scale, is to endanger not only the legitimacy of your own college but that of liberal education as well.
The eyes of New Jersey, and those of the nation, are upon you all.
Yeah, she is. Looking forward to tuning in. And actually, he is bogus... he only has an MA, which does not qualify him to be titled "Professor".
I'd love to see his reaction if his conservative students got clumsy and dropped books or other objects behind him.
I don't get it. The school administration said that basically there's nothing they can do since it happens not in public (it's personal e-mail). I think this can be considered a harrasment. Just imagine if the school's argument is applied to sexual harrasment case...
See post #16.
From your lips to the school's lawyers ears. The fact that it happened outside the school setting (personal e-mail) is even more ominous--like he's stalking her.
Comparing John Daly to America's military guys fighting in Iraq (I watch them on FoxNews and pictures here on FreeRepublic), I can't help but think, there are men and then there are MEN, and Daly isn't even a man. He should be on his hands and knees praying for the MEN who give him the right to freedom of speech. GOD BLESS OUR MILITARY!
I wonder how this prof would feel if someone suggested that college students frag their liberal professors?

Personally, I think it is a good idea. All of humanity would benefit.
A genuine humanitarian, that's me!
Nice investigative report... :-) Now, which one that can be used to nail him?
Keep emailing the Board of Trustees and anyone else who can impact Mr. Daly's employment.
This is simply outrageous and it is certainly NOT protected speech under these circumstances.
Rebecca Beach will be a guest on tonight's Hannity & Colmes. 9pm/2am ET.
Please FReepmail me if you want on or off my FoxFan list. *Warning: This can be a high-volume ping list at times.
"Isn't Tenure great?"
I'm not sure the knucklehead has tenure. I read he is a part-time instructor.
Well Mr Austin, please consider that he used his classroom as a forum to promote his political agenda, and that the fact that he did suggests that if his students ignored his 'suggestion' to not attend, they may find themselves suffering academically due to disagreeing with his instructions.
You said all the things I was thinking, only you were much more elequent than I could have been!
Hannity and Colmes are about to put this student on the air! :-)
What they need to do is ask that professor to have a little one on one talk with the nutty professor.
I know Scott Rutter personally and he is a fine gentleman and a courageous leader. This puke prof ought to be fired and banned from teaching anywhere in the free world!
You have to have a doctorate to be a professor? Is that a new requirement?
The day will come when the American people realize that these professors played a part in screwing up this country that they will storm the campuses and take them to the highest building on campus and throw them off.
