Following other colleges that have stopped serving Chick-fil-A on their campuses, University of South Florida students and faculty are being invited to sign an online petition to remove Chick-fil-A from the Marshall Student Center.

Jesus, where do you start? Assistant professor. Department of Humanities. Online petition. 500 supporters. Other colleges (which ones are those?). Which one is the bigger waste, the bandwidth they are consuming or the oxygen?

The Homo Advocating Leftists are once again attempting to destroy an American business by a boycott and petitions.

These people must be stopped as their boycotts are unAmerican and unChristian.

I’ve been connected with academia for several decades now.

One thing that I’ve always thought about is the idealized learning experience in higher education being one of openness, tolerance of viewpoints, and scholarly endeavors - or should be.

Nothing could be further from the truth. Higher education, especially in the liberal arts, and even a lot of the disciplines supposedly advanced by big liberal Ivy League schools is infested with close minded liberalism that practices ideological tyranny as if they invented it.

There is no dissent tolerated, and the viewpoints are stepping stones to rabid totalitarianism, the kind of which has created genocide on a massive scale in the past.

Still trying to make Chi-Fil-A public enemy #1 because the owner expoused a personal belief they disagree with?

If this doesn't meet to literal definition of insane I don't know what would.

...oust for religious bias/bigotry.

To quote Alinsky: “make them live by their own rules.” If religious bigotry is wrong (what they are accusing Chick-fil-a of), then religious bigotry against Chick-fil-a is also wrong.

Thanks for linking his CV. Note that prior to USF he was at the University of California at Berkeley, which is very telling.

I’d suggest a petition to disestablish the Department of Humanities & Cultural Studies and shift the resultant savings to the College of Engineering. But that’s just me.

Yup. As an ex-liberal, that’s my favorite one to apply. Rules-lawyering against liberals with their own rules is most entertaining and they almost never expect it.

A great budget cutting suggestion for USF: Cut the Department of Humanities & Cultural Studies. Obviously this department has no useful purpose and is a waste of student and taxpayer money.

Homosexuals!

They’re militant and they’re everywhere!

PUT THEM BACK IN THE CLOSET OR GET THEM PSYCHOLOGICAL HELP!

They aren’t content to live in a world where they are just another interest group.
They want to force the rest of us to alter the entire world to conform with their likes and dislikes.

I don’t care for sushi so I just don’t patronize sushi restaurants - I don’t try to shut them down.

Homo’s don’t like the owner of Chick-Fil-A. But it’s not enough for them to just not patronize Chick-Fil-A.
They demand that everyone else not be able to patronize them as well.

Perhaps Professor Ferguson should walk over the USF’s business school and have them explain what a lease contract is.

Excellent approach.

Every year schools like this churn out thundering herds of near unemployable liberal and social studies majors.

Then we must read again of the terrible job market for specialists, like Black Womyns History Majors, while engineering jobs go begging for qualified candidates.

Of course, there are well known reasons why many of these types aren't engineering majors.

I know, polls have shown that women are far more likely to support the whole rainbow agenda than men. Guess they are fooled by the “equality” meme and the sob stories.

Should be easy. Just ask them if they ‘built that.’
Rudi Guiliani said about a month ago that this was the easiest season to raise campaign money that he’d ever seen - businessmen were so mad at Obama’s disrespect that they were spitting checks for Romney.

And some telling lectures/activities he has given (from his CV):

"Pedophilia as Cinephilia in Capturing the Friedmans; Society for Cinema & Media Studies Conference (London), March 2005"

"The Berkeley Teach-In against the War Event Videographer, U. C. Berkeley, 2006 – 2009"

This one is a hard core Leftist.

Chick-Fil-A may as well start looking at new off-campus locations right now. These administrators will never have the balls to renew their leases in the face of angry little organized queer mobs.

I suspect it's deeper than that...Less politically-driven, more personal.

The homos, of course, seek acceptance and approval from women, since they know they'll never be accepted among men. I just can't figure out what the women get out of the bargain. (It must be quite a prize, though, if it's worth all the selling-out.)

Yep, it’s reached the point where not only do they want to silence dissent, they want to punish dissenters.

They want to make it mandatory for everyone to approve of them, to support them and to believe exactly as they do.

The next step will be to make it mandatory for everyone to engage in queer sex.

How about some students majoring in one of the academic programs that contribute to society organize a petition to keep Chick Fil-A! After all “Humanities and Cultural Studies” is code for communist and socialist, completely anti-conservative and anti-traditional.

Plus one of his listed specialty areas of study is Marxism.

I recall one of my college professors in a manditory core program and I having a rowe over an issue in a piece of literature. He was a pompous overbearing egotistic liberal jerk (on a good day) who said I could not see his point because I was an idiot. I retorted I expected such a comment from an ass..le and he replied I hope you don’t expect to pass this course.

I don’t recall exactly what the issue was but given how adament I was in my view, it most surely could have been a left verses right matter. Kept me off the deans list which really POed me. Fortunately I never ran into him outside of that class.

So I guess tenure even insulates these commie professors from punishment for violating the rights of people/organizations with which they disagree.

We have allowed our children to be brainwashed by communist union teachers in our public schools then we compound the problem by sending many to colleges/universities filled with these commie professors. We are doing this to ourselves.

“especially in the liberal arts, and even a lot of the disciplines supposedly advanced by big liberal Ivy League schools is infested with close minded liberalism that practices ideological tyranny as if they invented it.”

Now with the education bubble and severe budget problems, except for administrators, it is time to cut programs. This should start with any programs named Studies and end with journalism in the initial phase. After these cuts I would start with any that begin with basket and are part of athletic programs until we are back to a real education.

Most of talk radio are cowards wen it comes to mentioning what the homostapo are doing, pundits on TV like\\ Hannity who out of fear of upsetting their elitist cocktail liberal pals say nothing.

So long as our side shuts up then the homostapo and their lefty thugs will keep doing this.

We all need to speak up and inform others in our fmailies, neighbors, at work etc what is going on as there is a blackout
