“And to think...Joe Paterno died for this idiot’s sins.
Had this whole thing never happened, Joe would be alive today. “
The man died of lung cancer. Let’s not raise him up as some Jesus figure.
Paterno was in a job he loved---and took no chances of losing it. The word was out: If anyone dared to speak out against Spanier's perverted campus activities, their futures were at risk.....those who persisted with 'intolerant' views, could be terminated ("with extreme prejudice.")
Spanier calculatedly protected his outrageous activities, using threats and intimidation (this alone is a prosecutable crime).
When Sandusky surfaced, the evil Spanier defended his employees (not the victims)........NONE of the vaunted liberal "tolerance and compassion" was reserved for young victims of the sexual savagery.
And so it goes......what goes around, comes around. Spanier's "veil of secrecy" has been pierced. What appeared to be a Brave New World led by Spanier has morphed into a very deep cesspool----and Spanier is about to dive in head-first.
Spanier engineered a mind-numbing sexual free-for-all---but not before silencing the opposition. Imagine the hair-raising tales this perv could tell about wife-swapping, and other sexual sports, conducted on campus under his leadership?
