Skip to comments.Suffolk Prof On US Military: They’re “Killers,” Sympathy For Them “Not Rational In Today’s World”
Posted on 11/11/2011 11:33:59 AM PST by Hemingway's Ghost
On Wednesday a member of the Suffolk Law School staff sent out an email soliciting much needed supplies to put in care packages to be sent to deployed troops. You know, stuff like beef jerky, instant coffee, trail mix, etc? Scout troops do stuff like this all the time. In fact, the email specifically mentioned that one Suffolk Law student deployed to Afghanistan would be a recipient.
Pretty basic, patriotic stuff, right? Well, read this response from one of the Suffolk Law professors who received it, a (ahem) gentleman named Michael Avery:
I think it is shameful that it is perceived as legitimate to solicit in an academic institution for support for men and women who have gone overseas to kill other human beings. I understand that there is a residual sympathy for service members, perhaps engendered by support for troops in World War II, or perhaps from when there was a draft and people with few resources to resist were involuntarily sent to battle. That sympathy is not particularly rational in today's world, however.

Our men and women die even for the idiots.
Sympathetic article about poor Avery receiving death threats and saying controversial speech “gets the conversation going” and “tells uncomforable truths” coming shortly.
Phew! What a pompous bastard. I could barely make it through this stupid pompous screed.
Seems that there’s always a turd in the punch bowl. I guess this guy, M.Avery, is the turd. I am a Viet Nam vet that is proud of my service. Piss on Mr. Avery.
Yet another pathetic DemoLeftie Self Suicider...Longing to be unidentified filler in a mass grave.
My cat is a killer too. A nicer furrier killer you never could meet.
If this "person" was found in my foxhole when the balloon went up, I'd shoot him.
You’d think a law professor would know that our military swears allegiance only to the Constitution, and so goes only where we are told to go. His issue isn’t with the military, it’s with the people the nation elects.
As far as I’m concerned, he can FOAD.
I for one certainly HOPE our military is filled with killers, otherwise they are as useful as tits on a boar.
Thank you to all those who protect our freedoms using WHATEVER MEANS NECESSARY.
Cringe worthy defined. There will be days when you will deeply regret your words, Prof. I hope they come soon...and often.
You know what’s really funny about this?
Suffolk University is one block frtomt he Boston State House: Home to some of the biggest socialists in the country.
My word, what a place.
Sam Adams is spinning in his grave.
BA, LLB, Yale University; attended University of Moscow, U.S.S.R. 1968-1969.
I shit you not.
What is it with Yale? Why do they churn out the biggest pieces of sh*t in America?
1968 - 1972. Hippies, weathermen, Marxist intellectuals/ academics
2008 - present. OWS, anarchists, Marxist media / intellectuals / academics.
This time the “great silent majority” is too busy with Facebook to notice.
Not necessarily. There's serious competition from Haavaad and Princetin.
YEP! And not all that far from the Old State House, where all the fun was kicked off on March 5, 1770.
For some reason I get the feeling he is a pillow biter.
What’s shameful is this arrogant jerk is allowed to teach. Oversized flag doesn’t show neutrality???
Do you know how many people died so you could spew forth your ignorant clap-trap?
