Is it just me, or is anyone else getting a little sick and tired of the “worship of students” in this country?
No, you’re not alone. Nothing but the biggest collection of spoiled, whinny, ignorant, self-indulgent clueless little brats any generation has ever produced.
The wild, rabid, destructive riot in support of the child-rape enabler Paterno has tempered my affection for Penn State. May Paterno and the rest of the pederasts or pederast protectors suffer unspeakably forever.
All I see at the game is a bunch of people in the stadium trying to say “We are such good people. We really care....”
This is disgusting beyond belief. Other schools have been penalized and destroyed for far less, but this time the altar of political correctness is being displayed in all its power.
All in the name of "diversity" and "tolerance". The homosexual agenda (a key component of Penn State, a school proud of its LGBT programs) must be fought and destroyed by Christian Conservatives.
They are showing the “for the kids” spelled out over and over on painted blue naked male chests. This is brazen.
I suspect that not a single person in that stadium had anything to do with the crimes that occurred.
Here’s what this looks like to me. Freepers who now wish to trash the hell out of Penn State for the awful crimes of a few are very much like the people who trash America for atrocities committed by a few. It seems like to be consistent, those trashing PSU must also hold that we are a racist, imperialist nation.
I’m proud of this country and I’m proud of Penn State.
Did you catch the choreographed LONG moment of silence when the PSU players were huddled together just before kick-off?
I thought that was nice.
They were honoring the decade of TOTAL SILENCE when McQueary, Paterno, Curley, Schultz, Spanier, et al, did nothing as children were being raped.
Bully for you. You are defending the indefensible. You are defending a hideous university. Enjoy yourself.
Perhaps the pistol of fellow Pennsylvania R. Budd Dwyer is still available?
And then the Penn State Band can play “Hey Man, Nice Shot.”
OMG...keep the barf buckets handy...
Sandusky must have stashes and stashes of things that will come out if anyone touches him. Snarlen Arlen’s must have another magic bullet theory for homosexual predators that Sandusky now has, or something.
Some PSU alumni have started a defense fund for Sandusky.
I noticed that thus far in the game coverage ESPN showed footage of the student candlelight vigil but not the student riots. Why is that?
I don’t think most of us are tarring and feathering the entire university. Anyone with a brain knows better than to do that.
But in the wake of the recent riots, I find the Governor’s statement a little too broad the other way. There’s a lot not to be proud of, both in the actions of a few and the reasction by many students, many of whom probably don’t know the facts. He would have served the student body and the state better by simply staying out of it.
I just find it smacked of “Ok, let’s get the acknowledge the victim stuff out of the way....and let’s get on with the game.”
Pre-game coverage did show the riots.
Wonderful game opening. These kids so deserve a win today.
You won’t hear OR read ‘homosexual pedophile’, either...why is that? G-d Almighty called the sin of homosexuality an abomination, but no one else seems to want to...as for me? I stand with G-d.
And do you really think Ohio State weren’t tarred and feathered? What about USC and Auburn? Nobody is accusing every Penn State official or student of anything, but to be ginning up sympathy for a university that saw and hid its own program and facilities involvement in this defies belief.
This game should not be played. Penn State should not be competing for the Rose Bowl.
But don't you understand all the good that Sandusky has done for underprivileged kids through his charity? All the good he has done for Penn State? In Sandusky's mind, he probably thinks he will walk.
Sure it does - it shows that they can't walk away a game - ostensibly done at an "amateur level", as an adjunct to education - not for a single DAMNED DAY - when the leaders of the organization put those games, the revenues, the "pride" - over the safety of little boys who were ANALLY RAPED!
Well, frankly speaking, between this and Michael Mann’s AGW data that undermined scientific theory, Penn State has a lot to answer for. But, it’s not just Penn State. What is taught and endorsed on many college campuses—especially the big, state-run schools—endorses perversion, and we all know it. As taxpayers, we finance it. We can’t pretend that college years are some coming-of-age youth celebration when that environment preaches predation of the intellect, body and body politic. None of us should rightfully give our blessings to these odd, queer studies.
“Nothing but the biggest collection of spoiled, whinny, ignorant, self-indulgent clueless little brats any generation has ever produced.”
Just how exactly did the students get that way? You shouldn’t be focused on the students but on their failed parents.
Penn State is the school that emphasizes the liberal portion of its liberal arts curriculum. They certainly have pride in their support of homosexual programs (over 4700 results from the search).
Sandusky was out shopping at Penn State’s local Dick’s Sporting Goods earlier this week... no joke. I don’t think he plans on killing himself anytime soon.
I am ashamed of this country, and I am ashamed of Penn State.
To say that I’m proud of Penn State is not to say that I agree with everything that happens here. It’s an American university with all the flaws of one. But in my years here—as a conservative—I’ve experienced great academic freedom and respect and kindness even from liberal colleagues. The students are great!
I am a Penn State "Hater", but mostly as a rivalry kind of thing. That said, other than the very small minority of students that did the rioting, I think there is much to be proud of. I sense alot of "hatred" going on here for Penn State, similar to the hate you see when it comes to college football fans doing there thing. But so far, I think the vast majority of Penn State fans have comported themselves quite well.
Go Penn State!
By the way, are you still defending “racist America?” Of course, that’s a sarcastic analogy. America is a great country and PSU is a great community.
Your "great" students just rioted in support of an child anal-rape enabler, bub.
It's time to re-evaluate your evaluation skills.
The apples never fall far from the tree. There comes a time when a ‘’student’’ an 18, 19 or 20 year adult has to take responsibility and blame for themselves and their actions and stop blaming ‘’’society or mom and dad’’.
I agree. PSU shouldn’t have even taken the field after what their football program enabled by it’s choice of inaction. Now they want us to see them as some kind of martyrs.
If you think the students are bad,take a look at the High School drop-out debris littering the streets.
Here’s a very telling piece, from ESPN’s Big Ten blog. Before today’s Penn State Nebraska game, there was exactly one protester outside Beaver Stadium:
Given the scandal that is unfolding at Penn State, there is no way today’s game—or the rest of the season—should go on as scheduled. Yes, I know that none of the players had any involvement or connection with the Sandusky scandal. But a number of coaches, including interim head coach Tom Bradley, were around and may have participated in the cover-up, or at the very least, did nothing to stop Sandusky.
Yet, the Penn State community has no problem with Bradley leading their Nittany Lions onto the field against the Huskers. And apparently, the Big Ten would be content to let PSU potentially play for the conference championship and represent it in the Rose Bowl.
Almost 30 years ago, the NCAA shut down SMU’s football program for two years for paying players. If Penn State doesn’t deserve the death penalty for protecting a serial child rapist, I don’t know who does. As a sports columnist in Minneapolis put it, what SMU did (compared to PSU) “is the equivalent of spitting on a sidewalk.”
The 100,000-plus fans in Beaver Stadium today should be ashamed of themselves. Ditto for ABC/ESPN, which (apparently) never considered cancelling their coverage of the game.
“Im proud of this country and Im proud of Penn State.”
So the PSU president and who knows who else besides the other 5 or so downward knew about this for 12 or so years and allowed and/or enabled it.
How deep would this have to go for you to not be “proud” of Penn State?
What if one or more of the trustees knew and/or was involved?
What if there is a network of this among other Universities?
There’s a report that Sandusky was spotting in a local sporting goods store in State College on Thursday afternoon, wearing Penn State apparel.
Sure there comes a time when an adult needs to grow up. None the less we are all products of how our parents raised us. What morals, ethics, and so on.
I personally wouldn’t waste a gun on him.I would be willing to Fed-ex him a length of nice hemp rope if he asks.
Penn State and their supporters are insulated from reality and as a result delusional.
This game never should have been played. Painting your chest or holding some candles in “support” of the kids is just beyond-the-pale offensive.
Maybe after this show of goodwill the Penn State students can just put it all behind them and move on...
A few students did, just like a few idiots are at the OWS rallies. As the MSM is want to do, it turns out that those "riots" were smaller than the MSM reported and/or made it out to be. Penn State is one of the largest universities in America, 40,000+ students. Don't lose perspective.
Did you confront these "kind" liberals colleagues about the abomination of homosexuality? Did you explain how God smote Sodom and Gomorrah? Did you discuss the evils of the Obama administration with them? How about the power of union goons (Pennsylvania isn't a right to work state)? Did these liberals at PSU treat you with respect when you attacked their junk science of global warming? How do these colleagues react when you explain that life begins at conception and that abortion is contrary to God's will?
Liberals are not kind. They aren't reasonable. The leftist agenda is the same as the homosexual agenda -- the dismantling of America.
