Skip to comments.Two months later, MSUM still facing fallout from Ayers visit (Hussein's domestic terrorist pal)
Posted on 04/21/2013 6:32:20 AM PDT by Libloather
MOORHEAD Minnesota State University Moorhead is stepping up security as fallout builds two months after a controversial guest speaker visited campus in February.
President Edna Szymanski said the university has lost a significant amount of donor money since William Ayers was there for a Feb. 26 speech and three days of meetings with faculty and students on how to incorporate social justice issues into curricula.
But she said the tone of recent feedback turned from alumni threats of cutting off funding to institutional and personal threats after conservative talk-show host Rush Limbaugh mentioned the visit last week while discussing how Ayers got his start in the same way as the Boston Marathon bombers.

Bwahahahaha, a curse be upon all that cozy up to this man, and all of his ilk.
What is an “institutional” threat?
And why doesn’t this university president support free speech?
Freedom ain't free.
So is she saying that it is better if all are ignorant of how Ayers got his start
Too bad they didn’t lose all their donor money after “some guy from the neighborhood” paid them a visit. Again, why isn’t that asshat pushing up stink weed with jimmy hoffa someplace. Does he know some things that are keeping him alive? Just guessin’.
Sounds like an honor to me.
Defund every university that is in league with terrorists, both past and present.
NO state money should go to these subversive Leftist indoctrination camps. And it goes without saying that individuals and businesses should never support these anti-American institutions with donations. Any such support should be investigated.
Good. Talk with your checkbooks, it is the only thing that matters to these liberals
“”But she said the tone of recent feedback turned from alumni threats of cutting off funding to institutional and personal threats after conservative talk-show host Rush Limbaugh mentioned the visit last week while discussing how Ayers got his start in the same way as the Boston Marathon bombers.
We are working with our security forces and they are working with the police department about making sure that we step up our safety practices on campus in light of the threats we have been receiving, Szymanski said. There is definitely significantly enhanced security on campus right this minute.””
This is standard operating procedure by the leftists when they get exposed. Namely, claim they are now being physically threatened. This is so much same old, same old.
My wife graduated from there. So did Ed Schultz. We get a lot of fundraising letters from them. I think it is time for me to fill one out and explain why they will never see a penny from us.
Social Justice as part of the curriculum?
Code Words for Kommie teachin'/learnin'.
Did they have a course on how to shoot your own dog? /sarc (aimed at Mr. Ed)
Starve the pig!
I graduated from there as well. I am not planning to give them any money for the next few years. Ed Schultz was a jock while attending MSUM as I recall.
He was invited to the college by faculty members in the Education department-no surprise there. Of course, all in the name of academic freedom. I don’t recall anyone being invited by faculty members in that department who is conservative and would talk about not promoting social justice in the classroom but rather concentrating on improving the academic skills of the students.
A campaign to replace current college administration members is a “personal and institutional threat”.
I guess Soros will have to help them out with their loss of financial contributions. Today’s generation don’t know beans about Ayers and the Weatherman, they’d be hard pressed to tell you who shot JFK. That stuff is past, they’re too busy texting each other with nonsense, or they are heavily involved gaming on their xBox or PS3 to be concerned with past events that may affect them today. BTW, Good for Rush, I am glad to hear that he brought it to the surface where it will draw some attention and maybe even sink into the minds of mush.
What is their definition of a scholar?
Not to worry - I’m sure some stimulus dollars or federal educational grant money will be in the mail shortly to make up for whatever shortfall occurred.
My Alma Mater fourty-some years ago. I’ve sent the school a regular annual stipend for years. When I heard about it I wrote them I was finished donating but it didn’t matter. Not another dime. Not one until the current administration is flushed.
Well he writes better than the “president”, seeing how he wrote that pathetic pos’s autobiography.
They think they're on the winning side.
That would be forty-some years ago... Dang autocorrect. Not a reflection on the schools education, which was actually quite good then. LOL
Blah, blah, blah. Y'all got caught inviting a terrorist to the school and stopped the flow of $$$$$. Slap down.
All I care about is how much was Bill Ayers paid and who authorized paying a terrorist. I would feel different if Bill Ayers came for free. Universities are subsidizing Ayers and similar scum by paying them to speak. Why pay them if they are so dedicated to their commie BS beliefs they come for free
Exactly, let me put tother various parts of that article:
” .... and he was not invited to present on subversion or communism.
Of course he was as your social justice quotation shows.
” ... He wasnt paid for his time in Moorhead, she said, and the costs of his airfare and hotel room were covered through a special fund established by a donor to bring in visiting speakers.”
Gee you wonder why donations have dried up after publicly admitting this is what you use them for?
Also as others have suggested, the fix is pretty easy. Be able to tell your donors that you invite in a diverse group of speakers. That is an intellectually diverse group of speakers.
The administration of course should not be making decisions on who is invited to campus to speak in every college or department, but the administration should be encouraging them with positive and negative feedback to make the invitees intellectually diverse.
Heck if I were that President I would make sure that particular department invited in say Charles Murray or someone of his ilk and maybe someone associated with US Military education. I would also make sure the campus left treated them civilly. It will be interesting to see if that administration can figure out what is wrong.
William Ayers was the Tamerlan Tsarnaev of the 1950s & 1960s'.
They should have realized allowing a bomber to come and radicalize the campus was a bad idea.
obama the murderer
Maybe they should bring expert educator Charles Manson in and have him give a talk about how to establish cults. I’m sure the prison wouldn’t mind letting out for a public service trip. Academic freedom.
I wonder if other schools have this problem. I hope so.
I stopped donating to UNC-CH and hang up on the alumni donation drive callers.
It's a beautiful campus and I enjoyed being there, but I'm not financing them and their progressive agenda beyond what they got me for with tuition and books. I even stopped watching Tar Heel basketball and rarely wear my UNC shirts or caps.
Now, I send my donations to Hillsdale College instead.
