Posted on 12/07/2010 12:38:53 AM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
Amy Hagopian, a professor of Global Health at the University of Washington, has been on a crusade to end military recruitment at local high schools. In 2005, she was behind the first successful effort in the U.S. to ban military recruiters on a high school campus. And these days, under the guise of scholarship, she has co-authored an article for the American Journal of Public Health that compares military recruiters to child sex predators.
Hagopian is pictured below at Seattle's Garfield High School, which banned military recruiters in 2005 as a result of her efforts.
Hagopian's recent article that compares recruiters to sexual predators is titled "Should We End Military Recruiting in High Schools as a Matter of Child Protection and Public Health?" and argues that "Military recruiter behaviors are disturbingly similar to predatory grooming."
What is "predatory grooming"? According to a news report:
"Grooming behavior is defined as the process by which a child is befriended by a would-be abuser in an attempt to gain the child's confidence and trust," Hagopian says.
The Army calls the professor's claim that military recruiters act like child predators "outrageous and offensive."
As a professor of "global health," you'd think that Hagopian would have actual problems that she could be researching and writing about, rather than the bogus "scholarship" that she has decided to devote her energies to. After all, millions of people around the world die each year from infectious diseases like tuberculosis, AIDS, and malaria--those are real global health problems.
But Hagopian, like so many of the global health experts at our colleges and universities nationwide, uses her academic field as a way to give pseudo-scientific credibility to her mal-formed ideological convictions.
Military Recruiters Compare Prof with Sex Deprivation
I’m with you. She shouldn’t be allowed around kids, either. I still take cookies to the recruiters. Those guys are great!
Ya, she probably loves homosexuals and wants to repeal DADT. Homosexuals are sex predators and that is why they need to be kept out of the military. Their ratio of sex with kids far exceeds the ratio of heterosexual who are pedophiles.
Of course, these people are Marxists so can not reason or use logic. You never can when your foundation of ideology is one Big Lie.
I’m thinking the exact same thing.
I wonder if she is a member of the Hagopian clan that raised such hell in the seventies and eighties?
Actually, those recruiters are professors of global health too. Just different treatments.
I compare Hagopian to a terrorist. Someone that uses the system against the country to destroy it from within.....
Sounds exactly like the behaviour of the Marxist Professors with students at our colleges and universities.
“she probably loves homosexuals and wants to repeal DADT. Homosexuals are sex predators and that is why they need to be kept out of the military. Their ratio of sex with kids far exceeds the ratio of heterosexual who are pedophiles.”
My exact thought.
Inquiring minds want to know— exactly how does this perfesser
come to know what the definition is of “predatory grooming”?
Is it first hand knowledge— or just something she learned about in regressive counselling?People like her make me want to puke.
you said it much more diplomatically than I would have.
You said it very well!
These types are like the woman that chose to have the baby cut in half. She did not want the child, she just did not want another to have it.
“If the foundations be destroyed, what can the righteousness do? (Psalm 11:3)
Oh - I experienced predatory grooming as a kid. When I curry-combed my Morgan stallion, crows would land on his back and eat the bugs that got stirred up.
If she wants to discriminate against the military, then she should be ineligible to receive any government grants or assistance. The same should apply to her academic department and her university.
We do not have to just roll over and take from these looney radicals.
Amy is one ugly dude!
Well, if DADT gets repealed, she might be right.
What a freaking harpy.
Reasonably accurate, as a statement.
That is because these behaviors are those used by any person or group trying to sell something to someone. Similar methods are used by salesmen of products, by recruiters for cults, by pimps trying to lure a young runaway into prostitution, by pedophiles. Or by a young professor trying to get tenure.
It's called salesmanship.
The despicable part of this statement is that it ignores what is being sold, equating offering the opportunity for honorable service to the country with trying to lure a young person into sexual perversion.
