Rutgers students stage sit-in to protest Condoleezza Rice speech
FOX News ^ | April 29, 2014

Posted on 04/29/2014 3:27:50 AM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer

Roughly 50 Rutgers University students staged a sit-in at a school administration building in New Brunswick on Monday to protest the school's decision to invite Condoleezza Rice to speak at the university's commencement next month.

Some students held up signs reading, "No honors for war criminals," "War criminals out" and "RU 4 Humanity?" the report said.

The sit-in was one of the largest in Rutgers' history, according to The Daily Targum, a student newspaper. Police reportedly responded to the site of the protest after a glass door was broken and a student cut their hand.

There must be a misprint in here, somewhere. 50? 50! This is the best they can do? This sounds as emphatic as a NOW rally or an MSNBC audience.

If they had had 51 would the administration have surrendered?

Never mind how they’re treating Condeleeza. This isn’t about her personally.
Has any Secretary of State ever had to endure this sort of treatment?

Think of this. Those students are around 20 years old.

The Iraq war started in 2003. These kids ranged from 8 to 12 years old.

They are being manipulated by communist faculty.

“50! This is the best they can do?”

When I was in school 25 years ago a lot of the students were there for learning; 99.9% didn’t care about the cause du jour. As Rutgers imports a lot of foreign students, that figure is probably at 100% (the 50 “students” were probably faculty). Occasionally, some 60s holdout would show up with a megaphone trying to rally interest in some nonsense or other; they were routinely ignored. College rallies in the 60s were big because many people were there just to escape the draft (and since the war and draft ended many of those schools have shrunk); nowadays in this economy those that want four more years of high school find a cheaper way to live them out...

Rutgers sits in the land of Princeton, Columbia, NYU. It is known as the “safety” school for dumb and mediocre students who can’t get into the other schools. Also, guess where the dumb, mediocre faculty and administration gets hired? RU!!!

You’re statement shows you are just as ignorant as the students you are writing about. Contrary to your opinion, Rutgers is not a safe school by any means. In fact, it is quite good and selective in its admissions processes.

John Kerry should

Remember what his Paris commie pals did to Vietnam and Cambodia? Kerry never lost a night’s sleep, although he claimed to have spent a traumatic Christmas in Cambodia.

From Bill Bennet’s “American Patriot Alamanac”: On this day in history, April 30, 1975

“I cannot, alas, leave in such a cowardly fashion”

The events unfolded half a world away, but the last days of April 1975 were dark ones in American history. The United States had withdrawn its forces from Southeast Asia, leaving the Communist North Vietnamese army to overrun South Vietnam. On April 29, as North Vietnamese troops encircled Saigon, American officials began a helicopter evacuation to get thousands of U.S. citizens, South Vietnamese allies, and others out of the capital city. On April 30, South Vietnam surrendered.

Just days earlier, a similar though smaller-scale evacuation had taken place in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, as forces of the Communist Khmer Rouge moved in on that capital. As U.S. officials fled the country, the American ambassador asked Prince Sirik Matak if he would like to leave. Matak’s response is difficult for Americans to read:

I thank you very sincerely for your letter and your offer to transport me towards freedom. I cannot, alas, leave in such a cowardly fashion. As for you, and in particular for your great country, I never believed for a moment that you would have this sentiment of abandoning a people which has chosen liberty. You have refused us your protection, and we can do nothing about it. You leave, and my wish is that you and your country will find happiness under this sky. But, mark it well, that if I shall die here on the spot and in my country that I love, it is no matter, because we are all born and must die. I have only committed this mistake of believing in you.

When the Khmer Rouge seized Phnom Penh, they shot Matak in the stomach. Unattended, it took him three days to die. During the Khmer Rouge’s four-year reign of terror, some 1.5 million people died from execution, starvation, and forced labor.

“Contrary to your opinion, Rutgers is not a safe school by any means.”

Rutgers absolutely is a safety school for students applying to the Ivy League. It might still be a fine institution in some departments, but no one ever applied to Princeton as a fall-back because they were afraid Rutgers wouldn’t take them.

So, a student cut the hands of the police after they responded to the site of the protest for a broken glass door? Must be. "Police" is the only plural noun in the sentence that could possibly be the antecedant for the plural pronoun "their".

Not good. Opens the door for totally controlling speech. Who decides what is hate? Religious speech will be condemned as offensive and hateful .. that is already happening in schools, TV programing and some radio stations. The message becomes edited and may even come with fines or other punishment.

BE VERY CAREFUL OF THE RAMINICATIONS OF ANY RULES, LAWS AND THE POWER OF THOSE CONTROLLING THE PRESS. We learn too low and almost do not see the dangers of political correctness. MOO

Hey usafa92, you write like you went to Rutgers. Read your first sentence. Do you know that “you’re” is a contraction for “you are?” Probably not. And by the way, Rutgers is INDEED the safety school among the highly intelligent families I ride with. Rutgers, Rider, Rowan, Ramapo. The four dopey schools of New Jersey. And Rutgers is THE worst of the bunch. Unless your kids like bouncing from class to class on springless buses as an extra-curricular activity. (If they actually go to classes...) There’s a reason going to Rutgers is called the “RU Screw.”
