How about a petition to oust Scott Ferguson?
Dollars to donuts, he is a queer.
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.
Get the big $$ alumni to pressure the University President to oust this lout.
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.
Well stated. Yep, has been my experience of academia as well.
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.
good idea - never happen, though :-(
