Professor Who Vandalized Pro-Life Display Against Abortion Defends Actions

Highland Heights, KY -- A Northern Kentucky University professor who destroyed a pro-life display against abortion and encouraged her students to vandalize it as well is defending her actions. Dr. Sally Jacobsen, a British literature professor, called the display "silly" and said her free speech rights allowed her and others to trash the display. As LifeNews.com reported on Thursday, Jacobson and several students from her class vandalized a pro-life display of hundreds of crosses that the campus pro-life group had set up earlier in the week.

The professor and her students were caught on camera and seen by other witnesses trashing the pro-life display.

Jacobson admitted to the Cincinnati Enquirer newspaper that she and nine of her students engaged in the vandalism.

"I did, outside of class during the break, invite students to express their freedom-of-speech rights to destroy the display if they wished to," Jacobsen said.

She told the newspaper she had "no comment" as to whether she was involved, but a reporter form the NKU student newspaper caught Dr. Jacobson on camera.

Jacobson told the Enquirer she was upset by the pro-life display which she labeled a "slap in the face" to women who might be considering "the agonizing and very private decision to have an abortion."

The professor claimed it wasn't clear who put up the cross display, but members of Northern Right to Life, the campus pro-life group, received permission from the school to use the lawn outside the campus center for it.

After Dr. Jacobson and NKU students destroyed the display, members of the group decided put new crosses up in their place and camp out overnight on Thursday to make sure they weren't vandalized again.

The student group also told The Northerner student newspaper it plans to press charges with local police.

"We called the police and told them that we decided to press charges," Julie Broering, treasurer for the group, said. The decision came after members of the pro-life club held a day-long meeting and vote.

David Tobergte, an administrative sergeant with the University Police said those involved could face felony theft charges and any students could also face university sanctions regarding the incident.

The dirty little secret of the hard Left is that they are often really Fascists, and hence antiliberal, but they usually don't openly advocate blatant Nazi tactics like this witch.

It's a totally natural progression from socialism to Fascism.

The "masses" will never willingly submit to the schemes of the elite leadership. So the elites naturally have to impose their will by force.

They know what's best for you, after all.

Its just stunning that an education Aemrican could claim that their free Speech includes destroying other's speech they don't like... but sadly this is not an isolated case.

I had a bumper sticker on my car some years ago.

ABORTION STOPS A BEATING HEART

The headmaster's son at my daughter's private school threatened to block my tailpipe.

We met him recently and there he was single parenting a baby girl.

Somewhere along the way, he found humanity.

Papa Bush was speaking to a group recently. He told this story which still makes me laugh out loud.

He said he was at some event and the ugliest woman he had ever seen was holding up a sign....STAY OUT OF MY WOMB

Papa Bush said to the woman......NO WORRIES!

On the contrary -- only someone who HAS absorbed some of the garbage taught in our universities like subjectivism and relativism can ignore concepts like consistency and fairness and justice in favor of doctrines that give some people rights and not others. People like this Nazi witch really believe they have rights but not those who oppose her because she is right and they are wrong.

What IS surprising is that she is so blatant about it -- and in an area (Cincinnati suburb in Northern Kentucky) that is not as wacked-out as towns like Ithaca or Berzerkely or even Ann Arbor.

She's easy to read: so full of self-hatred that she has to turn it outward to keep from killing herself.

You ever notice that the most ardent baby killers are the ones that look least likely to be impregnated?

so you'd think, but... I've seen a whopping plenty of ten-bagger not-even-with-a-rental-johnson proven baby-factories, more than enough to make me suspect that for every level of female ugliness, there is a sufficient degree of male blindness.

The ACLU will be right in there defending their "right" to vandalize other's property.

"I did, outside of class during the break, invite students to express their freedom-of-speech rights to destroy the display if they wished to," Jacobsen said.

Huh? So I could smash in the windshield of that fat cow's car and I would merely be exercising my "right to free speech"? I don't think so.
