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.

Greetings from another Vietnam vet who is proud of his service, too. Leftwing academics who show indifference or moral equivalence or outright hostility to our brave military are nothing new to us.
How about those reporters during Desert Shield/Desert Storm who would not warn a U.S. soldier about to be ambushed, to preserve their “moral neutral objectivity”?
As for this turkey, here’s a college cheer I heard once,
“We are loyal and true, Suffolk you!”
He says “killers” like that is a BAD thing!
The purpose of war is to kill people and break things.
If you would have peace, prepare for war.
It is only that we have armed and dangerous “killers” ready to kill in our defense that we are kept safe from a world full of armed and organized people with homicidal intent.
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.
GUARANTEED this fat POS was at Travis AFB spitting on returning vets, or cheered on those who did.
I hope he does FOAD... hell awaits him.
In my “book” the professor in engaging in treasonous talk. But that’s just me.
Typical liberal snot-drip. Pasty-faced weiner who couldn’t fight his way out of a butterfly ambush. Grows fat on the meat the hunters brings home.
In a less domesticated world, he’d be carrion fodder by now.
I spit on him ...
And I think that it is shameful that a PROFESSOR at a LAW school doesn't know the meaning or usage of the word "legitimate". No, he really doesn't: "The politics of that solicitation are that war is legitimate, perhaps inevitable, and that patriotic Americans should get behind our troops."
Oh that’s just queer.
I salute you on this day and every day,Brother. Those of us who were there will never forget, those that weren’t there will never know what we went through. I always feel that something better awaits us.
He smiled sadly and asked her, "Young lady, would you really prefer a military full of people who did it for fun?"
I don't believe I ever saw anyone do a better fish imitation then she did.
Thanks, man. You’ve kept the faith for all these years.
It’s good to know that something better indeed awaits.

Note the association with the "National Lawyers Guild", a very leftist legal organization. Shocking!
Dollars to donuts this puke would see no problem supporting peace loving leftist groups like the Shining Path, Khmer Rouge, Red Brigade and Sandanistas.
No wedding ring? What a surprise.
