Massachusetts law professor calls care packages for U.S. troops ‘shameful’
Fox News ^ | 11/15/2011 | Daily Caller Staff

Posted on 11/15/2011 6:00:44 PM PST by Enchante

A Massachusetts law professor has created a campus firestorm with an email to colleagues that declares it would be “shameful” to send care packages to U.S. troops “who have gone overseas to kill other human beings.”

I think we need to appreciate the occasional 'honest' leftist like this guy or Ward Churchill or Bill Ayers, who lets us know what all of them are really thinking.....

This guy is disgusting, but at least he brings the issue up, what much of the pompous left has tried to hide since 9/11, that they are really all America-hating subversives....

so much for the “support the troops” pretenses of the self-styled “intelligentsia” and campus leftists.....this law professor dares to say what ALL of them really think......

I well remember Katha Pollit’s (writer for leftist rag “The Nation”) agonies after 9/11 that her daughter would dare to want to display a US flag...... and of course who can forget Obama’s pals like Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn.

This is the guy that attended university in MOSCOW, USSR, from I think 67-68. What does this dirt bag teach, anyway? He’s a commie through and through ....

I think it's time for me to go shopping for items requested by our troops, collected through our church. Items of toiletries, socks, games, video/CDs,candy, just like home and they do appreciate all that is sent. GOD bless our Troops, but this professor he hasn't it seemss.

Maybe this professor would like a special care package. hmmmm, he's feeling left out.

Perhaps this professor would like to go overseas and show us barbarians how tolerant the islamonazis are?
No?
The Professor won’t go overseas to prove how sweet and nice the islamists are?
What a pansy he is.

Our soldiers are killers and flying our flag is awful because it’s not neutral. This guy gets great benefit from those he abuses.

He also teaches constitutional law.

Who wants to bet that he shapes the constitution to fit his world view?

What a piece of sh!t.

Being deployed from April thru mid Sept of this year, care packages kept me going and kept me sane.

I was so happy to get a box, break it open and share the toys, cards, candy, etc. with my troops.

"Michael Avery, a Suffolk University Law School professor who made headlines for an email to colleagues calling care packages for United States soldiers abroad “shameful,” attended the University of Moscow from 1968 through 1969, The Daily Caller has learned"

Hmmm.... think about the mentality of someone who in the midst of the Vietnam War, at the height/depths of the Cold War, heads off to study in Moscow...... (not Moscow, Idaho but Moscow, USSR). Yup, we've got a true-red traitor here....

Yup, this POS can’t even manage the usual “support the troops but oppose the war” mantra of the rabid leftist frauds..... but there are so many more like him who just don’t say it so openly.

Went to read article and note that this man stated this crap in an email (not in the classroom) to colleagues at the law school where he works. His name is Michael Avery-and HE is a LAW PROFESSOR? Our culture and history are under attack everywhere-we are in such trouble.

God bless you, Jet. You’re a hero in my book. The prof in this article is one I’d call a weasel, aside from how embarrassing the weasels in nature would find that. This is obviously one of those who forget that his freedom was never free. Many paid the price.

Seriously, thank you deeply, for what you’ve done.

Yet another disciple of Herbert Marcuse perhaps? Who is Herbert Marcuse? One of the first establishers of Marxism in the USA beginning in the 1930’s in colleges and universities starting at Columbia University. Marcuse by some sources was accredited with creating the slogan “Make love not war” the anti-war slogan for 1960’s campuses protest.

I hate to disagree with yet another shyster lawyer but I’ve got a different idea of what “shameful” is. “Shameful” is a scumbag president and dumbass vice president sending their wives to Homestead this weekend to be the grand marshalls at the final NASCAR race and pretending to be doing it “for the troops”. NOW THAT’S SHAMEFUL. The commies have decided to exploit the military to go after the bitter Bible thumping, gun-toting “red neck” voters. Sick commie bass turds.

My daughter and her husband got back from iraq about 2 years ago. Him after his 3rd tour. Grandma and I watched their babies.

We still proudly fly their blue star in our window.

We need to find out who the personnel officer/president of this Suffolk piece of crap college is and send our OWN emails!

Godspeed

Actually, looking at some of the other faculty there, this kind of statement doesn't surprise me a bit. To wit:

They're a whole nest of lefty nut jobs. No wonder they're sending emails like this around to each other. they know they got no downside. cause they're ALL insane liberals.

I hope he teaches at a private university. Otherwise, it means he’s on the public payroll, which would be doubly appalling. He’s obviously unfit to be a professor, even though he has the right to freedom of speech, which is protected in part by the very soldiers he vilifies.

I'll tell you what is shameful about military care packages. I took one for my Soldier son who is in Africa to the Post Office, and they made me take the electric pre-shave lotion out because it had alcohol in it.

There are not just a lot of places to get toiletries when you live in an FOB in Africa. I do get funny looks when filling out customs forms though.

Avery is a red. He was listed as the president of the old Communist Party USA legal front, the National Lawyers Guild, in 2006, and testified against the nomination of Samuel Alito for the Supreme Court, along with NLG Ex. Director Heidi Boghosian, another open red.

Also testifying at the hearing was future NLG president Majorie Cohn, and former Military Intelligence office turned turncoat, Christopher Pyle. All teach law.

Avery also cowrote a chapter in a book, “Police Misconduct, Law and Litigation” , along with Karen Blum (whose name rings a red bell), and David Rudovsky. Rudovsky, a radical leftist, was a colleague of David Kairys, avowed marxist attorney, and member of the CPUSA legal front, the National Emergency Civil Liberties Committee (NECLC). See the online database on the Left, “www.keywiki.org”, Search for “National Lawyers Guild”, for some names. You’ll see many of them listed there.

Also go to www.frontpagemagazine.com, then their “www.DiscoverTheNetwork” database for info on several of these people as well as on the NLG, CCR, and poss. NECLC.

What we have with Avery is a very dangerous law professor, along with Cohen and Kairys, among other reds in academia.

Now you know why so many leftist attorneys are out there, including in the Dept. of Justice (some from the NLG; others from its offshoot, the Center for Constitutional Rights).

“There’s trouble in paradise”.

I prefer: “First we hang all the lawyers” (at least the reds and ambulance chasers). The thought of Gloria Allred swinging in the wind brings tears to my heart. She is a disgrace to the professor, as was Johnnie Cochran, commie William Kunstler, and the red/racist law professors of Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and Eric Holder, to name a few.

The bad news is that there are hundreds of marxists and communist law professors teaching future lawyers. These “red termites” are directly responsible for the undermining of our Constitution and of our defense and internal security programs, and you see what that has led to.

You are one of my heroes, JJ!
I hope nobody in the military gives this dip$**t another thought!
Sending packages to the Troops is something I have done for years, and all were so happy to get them.
It was it’s own reward to know that it made our Troops happy.
The REAL shame, is this silly sissy filling our young ones heads with that tripe.
They never think about the mean and women who died to keep them free, and the never think about our active military.
What they do for us, the families they leave behind, the exhaustion and stress of war.

Pay him no mind..
We will fix this buggers wagon!
Our Troops ROCK and we love them!!

He can take his shameful opinion and stick it where the sun don’t shine.
