LINK: Penn State Student Affairs: The 'Worrisome' Veteran
Penn State University's Office of Student Affairs, in partnership with President Graham Spanier, produced this vignette on "worrisome student behaviors" featuring a stereotypical "aggressive" veteran who threatens his professors.
Faculty and administrators again prove they care more about poisonous "progressivism" than intellectual pluralism.
This video was originally online @ http://studentaffairs.psu.edu/caps/wsb/index.html.
Penn State removed the video from the website on Fri., Feb. 27, but left the others online -- all but declaring their awareness of its inappropriateness.
It’s certainly understandable why Universities would “worry” about vets. Vets are mature, reasoned, thinking, self sufficient, and not prone to buying the propaganda spewing from the professors. This is the antithesis of most of the other students attending. No wonder the universities “worry”.
This is disgusting. Penn State goes out of its way to create suspicion of Vets and stereotype them as violent of unstable. I marvel at how most of those in academia fail to see the connection between a Military Veteran’s sacrifice and their freedoms. The school should apologize profusely for putting out this information.
You are thinking way to small.
Pennsylvania should be purged from the Union. The ideology is unacceptable and should just be thrown out.....lock stock and university.
They probably had their eye on gun owners.
Penn State will wind up in the state pen. Not much good coming out of that place lately. The Nittany Lion should be put up for adoption.
"Worrisome student behaviour" is militant faggots propositioning, molesting, or violently assaulting folks in the locker room. Does Perv State (or State Penn ... take your pick) have a cutesy little video about that?
....and it is also about year old news. Or more.
One notes the discussion between a black man and a woman about the “dangerousness” of a white man. Execrable racism.
And so it begins. The left is tired of “supporting the troops”. The left has, and always will, hate the military.
They’re coming out of the closet, just like they did in the 60s and 70s.
The libs have identified vets as those citizens most likely to oppose any moves to a dictatorship, so they must be smeared, per Alinsky.
I can cite some excellent examples of veterans being aggressive in a university setting.
First, when soldiers returned home from WWII, their priorities were to get an education, get married, and get a job (in no particular order), and to raise a family. These were highly motivated men. But universities of the time did not permit unchaperoned male-female association, often they did not tolerate students being married or owning cars, and students could not live off campus (a corrupt racket in many cases.)
The MSM for its part, described returning WWII vets as “dangerous, rape-crazy trained killers” who were a threat to society.
The vets, for their part, said “B*******!!”, and told the universities to “shut up and teach”, and the MSM to “go get knotted.” It was a very quiet time on campus, because any radical professor or students were sat on by the veterans who tolerated no nonsense.
The second example was when a USMC attack helicopter pilot veteran of the Vietnam War was taking a college class in which on the first day, the professor lashed out at veterans, calling them “baby killers”, etc. After some minutes of this, the veteran stood up, a rather imposing man, and announced to the professor and the class that he was a Vietnam veteran, that the professor was a lying communist bastard, “And I don’t have to put up with this B*******!!”, before walking out.
The third example was from the early Reagan years, and a conservative professor teaching a course on military history. His class was populated with veterans and rather motivated ROTC cadets taught by veterans.
As a special event, a panel of active duty officers from the War College had been invited to speak to the class.
They had been strongly coached that college students were radical leftists, primed to lash out at the military, so they would have to be on their diplomatic best and watch their step. In this case, they were ill-advised.
After a bland and tepid introduction, their spokesman hesitatingly opened the floor to questions, anticipating the worst.
The first question was from a cadet, who asked a very complex technical question about US Ohio-class submarines. The response from navy officer on the panel reflected considerable puzzlement on his part.
The next question was from a Armor veteran, about the cooling manifold of the M-1 Abrams tank that had been in the news of late. More honest puzzlement from the panel.
Fortunately the third question was not technical at all, and was asked by a veteran who was also a cadet.
“So when are we going to Nicaragua to kick some Sandinista butt?”
Those darned aggressive veterans!
(I will add that the panel really got to engage their diplomatic tap-dancing skills with that one.)
I would think that assistant football coaches are a whole lot more worrisome. But then, this is academia, and they were only children, right?
I remember 1972 when I was in college and the vets were returning from Vietnam and coming to college. They were older and you could see a lifetime in their eyes. They spent most of their time in groups together with other vets or they were married and had families. Many students were afraid of them but I worked with them building shows and helping them move or work on cars. You treated them like men. You never called them boys. Only stupid professors called them that. A few of them I know did not make it past 5 years because they had lost too much of their early life and killed themselves. I will always remember that group of men.
The students today having not grown enough to understand these men.
