Posted on 11/18/2005 8:00:19 PM PST by Jacob Kell
When Rebecca Beach, a freshman at Warren Community College in New Jersey e-mailed faculty announcing a campus program yesterday featuring decorated Iraq war hero Lt. Col. Scott Rutter, the response she got from one English professor took her aback.
English professor John Daly replied: "Real freedom will come when soldiers in Iraq turn their guns on their superiors."
Daly added that he would ask his students 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."

The best job this mental midget can land is as an English professor at a community college? Sounds to me like he's got success envy.
That's outrageous! Free speech is one thing, common civility is quite another. This fool ought to be fired. BTW, interesting that the CC has already come out with a CYA on this - the backlash must have been huge and very irate, and rightfully so.
The guy is probably hoping for the Democratic nomination next election. We had a traitor last time, and a draft dodger before. Seems like logical progression to me.
I heard him getting knocked around on one of the radio shows today. I think it was the Tony Snow show with John Gibson calling him a coward because he wouldn't repeat the statement on the air.
Poor thing...he must have gotten his hand tangled up in his marble bag trying to find his lack of masculinity and blamed our military leaders for his inadequacies. Spayed and neutered professors shouldn't engage in agressive Anti-American behavior because it gives the impression that they are seriously envious of anyone else who does have cajones!
This is what I mailed to Comrade Daly:
By now, you may have already received a number of letters expressing disagreement with the statements that you have made to Ms. Rebecca Beach. While America isn't perfect, it's still a fine place. One of the reasons why it's a fine place is because of something called 'freedom of speech', which basically means tolerating the right of everyone to speak their mind, even if you don't agree with it. You've been able to enjoy that right by speaking whatever you wished to, and in return, is it really too much to ask that you please extend the right to those who hold differing opinions, such as Ms. Beach Civil disagreement is a hallmark of a free and healthy society, IMHO. You claim that Ms. Beach has been spouting "fascist propaganda", or something along those lines. How exactly is what Ms. Beach has been saying "fascist"? Did she advocate the mass-murder of Jews? Has she gone on record as saying that we should invade and conquer Canada? Did she say that we should disarm all Americans, no matter whether they were responsible, law-abiding citizens of sound mind or not? If anything, refusing to tolerate different opinions than what one holds is what's truly fascist. BTW, you claim that capitalism has killed more people than communism. Might I suggest taking a look at the excellent and highly regarded "The Black Book of Communism"? It's got all sorts of interesting facts and data. Also, if Marxism is the solution, then how come that whenever it's been tried out it always results in failure, poverty, and mass murder? You should thank God that you live in the US, and not North Korea, for example. If you critize Kim Jong-Il, you would probably be quite fortunate if you were merely sent to prison.
Take these professors right out of the classrooms.
Read an article on world net daily earlier today that included the morons e-mail address
I know, and I've already sent the putz a mail.
What an absolute disgrace. I wonder if I'll read about this in my Boston Globe? (sarcasm off)
Here is the e-mail for Comrade Scumbucket, in case you guys want to send him some Freeper love:
Professor John Daly does not desrve to be a teacher. Instead of informing students on the various points of view on any given issue, so they can understand and arrive at individually generated conclusions of their own, he insists on keeping students ignorant with his own personal polemic.
In doing this he disqualifies himself as an educator. As a result he needs to be fired or terminated as an educator
who insists on ignorance in his students, rather than imparting a way for students to arrive at their own wisdom and knowledge.His is a culture of hate and intolereance, and pedantic jingoism. F__k him and the horse he rode in on.
Warren Community College of New Jersey appears not to be a fit place for students, but is simply the barnyard of
" Animal Farm."
His specialty is linguistics. He's trying to be another Noam Chomsky.
I strongly suggest you actually READ some of the articles on this incident before condemning the whole school. I have read a number of articles and the ONLY negative e-mail Ms. Beach stated she received in response to hers was from that one moron Daly. No other faculty members gave her a hard time. He indeed does not belong there, but I fail to see how this warrants your last line of comment.
"He indeed does not belong there, but I fail to see how this warrants your last line of comment."
Any school that allows ignorance and discivilzation to be promoted by even one faculty member tarnishes the whole school and it's administrative policy. Post Secondary education relies on institutional marketing, as you know.
I wouldn't send my Irish Setter to be schooled there , let alone a son or daughter. Thankfully there are many other alternatives where the true paths to wisdom and knowledge are still the leading lights of post secondary institutions. 10 to 30 grand a year is to much to pay to inculcate one's students with jingoism in place of knowledge and a multifaceted approach, even in one English course.That goes for both Liberal and Conservative jingoism BTW, both are anaethemic to the preservation of the Republic.
I hope Daly is held responsible for his conduct, that's why I made the remark about the school and stand by it.
Perhaps I am over sensitive on the issue being an educator myself, with Dartmouth College just down the road! My apologies if I offended you.
Or... why is it that commie countries all have barbed wire at the borders to keep folks in?
"Or... why is it that commie countries all have barbed wire at the borders to keep folks in?"
One of the fences used in communist countries is allowing college faculty to promote jingoism in students in place of cool analysis. Faculty in communist countries are
the first to be historically executed or re-educated toward jingoism. Daly insists on jingoism. The school should simply not renew his contract as an adjunct professor.
Here is the schools response viewable at:
Including the right to call for the murder of Ed Smith? Not bloody likely. If somebody did that, the reaction would be something stronger than platitudes like this.
You're right, of course. All they want is their own side of any argument heard because they know that confronted with little things like facts and logic their arguments will fly out of the minds of their students like so many fall leaves in a Kansas tornado.
