    The Fort Worth Star-Telegram ^ | Wed, Dec. 08, 2004 | Robert Jensen
    The United States has lost the war in Iraq, and that's a good thing. I don't mean that the loss of American and Iraqi lives is to be celebrated. The death and destruction are numbingly tragic, and the suffering in Iraq is hard for most of us in the United States to comprehend. The tragedy is compounded because these deaths haven't protected Americans or brought freedom to Iraqis. They have come in the quest to extend the American empire in this "new American century." So, as a U.S. citizen, I welcome the U.S. defeat for a simple reason: It isn't...

    UT professor who outraged readers says antiwar activists like him were right about 9/11 We all remember where we were and what we felt on the morning of Sept. 11, 2001. I also have a clear recollection of the morning of Sept. 14, 2001.I got to my office early, and the red message light on my phone was already blinking. My voice-mailbox was full of angry condemnations of an essay that had run in the Houston Chronicle that morning ("U.S. just as guilty of committing own violent acts," Outlook), in which I sharply criticized past U.S. policy and warned that...

    It is sad to report, but a local parish in the Victoria, Tx Diocese invited UT professor Robert Jensen to speak to the faithful at the end of September. I have contacted the church office and informed them of Jensen's views on abortion and homosexuality, but they have not decided to cancel his appearance. I have initiated an email campaign to urge Catholics to call the parish and the diocese and ask why someone with his views would be invited to speak. I have not determined yet whether he will receive payment, nor whether the Bishop knows about his views....

    The Daily Texan ^ | 6/13/06 | Andy St. Jean
    (Austin) - UT journalism associate professor Robert Jensen has found himself at the center of many debates. This time, the conflict lies over his religious beliefs and membership in a local church. The Presbyterian church he has been attending since last December was reprimanded Friday for admitting him as a member. St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church was told by the Mission Presbytery, the regional governing body of 157 Presbyterian churches in South and Central Texas, that the acceptance of Jensen into membership was "irregular." Furthermore, it was "void" because Jensen has said in the past he doesn't believe in God. "I...

    The bitter truth, as we feast on the bounty of the empire -Our myth of Thanksgiving warps a history of genocide ONE indication of moral and intellectual progress in the United States would be the replacement of Thanksgiving Day with a National Day of Atonement. Indigenous people have offered such a model; since 1970 they have marked the fourth Thursday of November as a Day of Mourning in a spiritual/political ceremony on Coles Hill overlooking Plymouth Rock, one of the early sites of the European invasion of the Americas. But the thought of changing this white-supremacist holiday is hard to...

    Robert Jensen is an associate professor of journalism at the University of Texas, a radical who opposes the war in Iraq, American military reprisal for 9/11, even minimal precautions to protect U.S. borders, any semblance of capitalism, and any restrictions on race-based preferences in hiring or education. He regards the war of Islamic radicals against the West in general and America in particular as a justified war against imperialism. In a recent article on Web publication Alternet, Jensen dismissed U.S. efforts to bring democracy to Iraq and claimed, all evidence to the contrary, that America’s real intention is hegemony over...

    First, a disclaimer: Given all the fussing about dangerous radical professors these days, I should make it clear that while I teach at the University of Texas at Austin, I don’t speak for the university. (Not that anyone at this rally would ever imagine that I do.) I repeat: What I’m about to say is not official policy of the University of Texas. In case anyone was confused, the University of Texas is not a radical institution and is not committed to anti-empire politics. ...

    The Anti-American Academy: Robert Jensen Robert Jensen is a journalism professor at the University of Texas at Austin. He says the United States is a depraved criminal nation bent on dominating the world, and Ward Churchill is right. Ward Churchill is right about 9/11. I state that bluntly, even though I disagree with some aspects of the University of Colorado professor’s now-infamous essay, because so many (including some on the left) have defended his First Amendment rights while either remaining silent about, or condemning, the article’s analysis. So, for the record: The main thesis Churchill put forward in “’Some...

    In this nation we live in many of us can just not get a handle on some things and some people and ideals. Sure, we can all recognize that there are folks with some differing views on politics and America’s role in the 21st century world. However, for those of us who love America and its greatness we simply cannot grasp how some could live here and take advantage of the liberties of America while supporting its enemies. Robert Jensen, a journalism professor at the University of Texas, is such a person. Now Professor Jensen, a self-confessed radical, would never...

    In an op-ed for the Fort-Worth Star-Telegram, radical leftist Robert Jensen and journalism professor at the University of Texas at Austin, calls on Americans to pursue “the most courageous act of citizenship in the United States today: pledging to dismantle the American empire.” Jensen insists, “The United States has lost the war in Iraq, and that's a good thing.” With Professor Jensen, leftist stalwart pundits and publications—including The Nation, Barbara Ehrenreich, and Howard Zinn—have abandoned pacifism in favor of rooting for America's terrorist (“insurgent”) enemies in Iraq. To witness the extent to which the radical Left has become a willing...

    Liberals have often left me teetering on the brink of insanity after hearing them speak, but after watching the repeat of Hannity and Colmes I am beyond words (well I am really not because I am writing this now). They had this professor on from the University of Texas named Robert Jansen who said he hopes our country loses the Iraq War. Now, I don't know if simply rooting for your country to lose (or in other words rooting for the enemy and death of our brave soldiers) in a war is criminal (maybe some law freepers can help me...

    Imagine the scandal if a foreign government had for years funneled millions of dollars to political groups in the United States in an attempt to affect the outcome of a U.S. election. Even worse, what if some of the groups that received money had been involved in a failed coup attempt against a democratically elected U.S. president? Would the U.S. public not have a right to be outraged at the attempt to manipulate our political process? Of course we would - which is why the people of Venezuela have a right to be outraged at the U.S. government's ongoing attempts...

    D A L L A S, Dec. 13— University of Texas journalism professor Robert Jensen is an unapologetic liberal who openly expresses his strong views, both in and out of the classroom. "My political views are left," Jensen said. "Some people would call me a radical." In the aftermath of Sept. 11, 2001, student Austin Kinghorn felt Jensen crossed the line. "We walked in, and he had the overhead projector turned on, and on there was a sentence, 'What is terrorism?' " Kinghorn said. "And Jensen took the next hour and 15 minutes of class to basically make his point,...

    (CNSNews.com) - Fed up with what it views as "an overwhelming liberal bias in higher education," a group of conservative students at the University of Texas has begun compiling a list of professors who allegedly use their classes for the liberal indoctrination of students. "There's a lot of professors out there who don't just teach the facts, but also mold the curriculum in a way that attempts to produce a certain mindset in their students," said Austin Kinghorn, chairman of the university's chapter of the Young Conservatives of Texas. "These are the kinds of professors that the Professor Watch List...
