No, Dean Nelson, its not about free speech. Its about fundamental decency.
That was the point attorney Robert Roughsedge was making Monday when he resigned from a job as adjunct professor at Suffolk University Law School.
(Suffolk Law) Professor Avery has engaged in hate speech against a class of citizens who ironically do not enjoy the same First Amendment rights. Members serving in the U.S. military, Roughsedge wrote to Suffolk Law Dean Camille Nelson.
He should know. He sent his resignation letter from Kabul, where hes better known as Maj. Bob Roughsedge of the Army Reserves.
And he resigned not over one loony leftys attacks on soldiers, but over how the incident was handled by Suffolk. Simply affirming the law schools support for free speech isnt enough. Not nearly enough.
Recall what Prof. Michael Avery actually said in response to an e-mail soliciting toiletries for care packages for soldiers in Afghanistan and Iraq:
I think it is shameful that it is perceived as legitimate to solicit...for men and women who have gone overseas to kill other human beings, he wrote. Then he dismissed the idea of being sympathetic toward U.S. military members abroad (that sympathy is not particularly rational in todays world).
This is beyond the typical liberal know-nothingism of war is not the answer or I oppose the war, not the troops. Heres a leading academic teaching young people about law and war, from the premise that they should be ashamed to think its acceptable even to send troops instant coffee and handy wipes.
In polite social circles, such anti-soldier idiocy would get Avery a poke in the nose and an invitation to engage in biologically problematic self-reproduction. At Suffolk Law, it got him precisely...nothing.
Dean Nelson simply uttered the magic words...

Suffolk Law is the hack school hack democrat politicians go to, to get a law degree, so they can be appointed judge’s, after a long and distinguished career as hack politicians in Massachusetts. Suffolk Law is a disgusting rat hole of liberalism, communism, and hatred of God, in other words is a school of the democrat.
I hire no one with a degree from any school in Massachusetts. No One!
I received a Masters Degree from Suffolk University and instead of a my yearly donation, next month they will get a terse letter and a request to be taken off their mailing lists.
Let me help with that headline
Lib Law School Prof Attacks Obama’s Military, School Says Nothing
This law professor deserves to have his lights punched out at the next faculty mixer. But I’m sure that there won’t be any veterans in the room. Darn shame!
If you spend even a second thinking about laws you quickly realize that, with the possible exception of the Ten Commandments, every law is effective only through the use of violence against an individual. If it were otherwise there wouldn't be a detailed discussion of penalties and fines associated with every law ever written. “As the court shall decide” is an open ended statement that could lead to a death penalty; yet, we see it all to often.
As for “freedom of speech” try yelling fire in a crowded department store tomorrow to see how fast that “freedom” disappears.
I am quite confident that when the sword, gun, bomb or other tool of death approaches “PROF” Avery, he will cry out to his “would be protectors”, “Stop, commit no violence in my name!!!”
I’m also sure that he would demand that those who wipe out his own family are “severely scolded and lectured and sent on their way.”
Living proof that COMMON SENSE is not a requirement to become a “professor” (of much worth knowing)
I sent an email to the Brown guy. Provost. Told him to fire Avery’s butt. He should get some stones and can his ass.
I hope you won’t lump everyone who graduated from a Mass school into the same bin. Although there is pervasive leftist groupthink at every school I have observed there and in any other state, occasionally someone graduates who isn’t an intolerant socialist. I can think of at least one.
Let me say it again. I hire no one that has attended any school in Massachusetts. None. Period, end of discussion.
