LIBERAL PROF CALLS CARE PACKAGE DRIVE "SHAMEFUL"
|Dear Professor Avery.
I sent this care package to the troops in Iraq and Afghanistan in response to your hateful and un-American statements, calling it "shameful" to support them. I hope you are happy that you have inspired me to support the troops even more fervently.
Your comments reminded me of how our troops and veterans were mistreated after the Vietnam war, but today we are proving that those days are over. Your comments about our troops were offensive to thousands of military families and their supporters, of which I am one, and it's a travesty that you are still allowed to teach young minds, when clearly your own mind is closed and ignorant.
Did you not see the irony in the fact that your own 1st Amendment right to speak out against our troops is protected by THEIR service and SACRIFICE?
You are the one who is shameful.
If there is one possible benefit to your unfortunate and inappropriate blathering of your own self-righteous opinion, it's that your offensive comments has spurned thousands of troop supporters like myself to rally around the brave military men and women whom you have slandered, and support them even more.
Signed, a grateful American.
“Liberal” my foot.

Massachusetts anti-military law professor attended University of Moscow 53 mins ago
Michael Avery, a Suffolk University Law School professor who made headlines for an email to colleagues calling care packages for United States soldiers abroad shameful, attended the University of Moscow from 1968 through 1969, The Daily Caller has learned.
Averys studies in the U.S.S.R. coincided with the height of the Cold War and the Soviet Unions invasion of Czechoslovakia, punishing a period of liberalization known as The Prague Spring. That 1968 invasion marked the launch of the Brezhnev Doctrine, which declared: When forces that are hostile to socialism try to turn the development of some socialist country towards capitalism, it becomes not only a problem of the country concerned, but a common problem and concern of all socialist countries.
Averys time studying in Moscow, then the epicenter of totalitarian expansionism, also corresponded with the height of the Vietnam War when thousands of Americans were serving and dying in combat against Soviet-backed forces.
Fox affiliate WFXT-TV reported that in his five-paragraph email to colleagues protesting a school-wide care package drive for the holiday season, Avery wrote, 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.

But that is what the descriptions liberal and leftist scream out when ever they are used to describe people
Fox News had a story about this on Monday:

A Massachusetts law professor has created a campus firestorm with an email to colleagues that declares it would be "shameful" to send care packages to U.S. troops "who have gone overseas to kill other human beings."
Michael Avery, a professor at Suffolk University Law School, sent a five-paragraph email to colleagues in response to a school-wide appeal for care packages for deployed soldiers, Fox affiliate WFXT-TV reports.
"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," Avery wrote.
The professor, who specializes in constitutional law, wrote the email last week in response to a university drive to collect items for U.S. troops, like sunblock and sanitary products. He also wrote that sympathy for American troops in harm's way is "not particularly rational in today's world."
Paul Spera, past commander in chief of the Veterans of Foreign Wars, blasted Avery's remarks on Monday, calling the professor's argument "despicable."
"The shameful thing is that hes teaching our young people," Spera told FoxNews.com.
"One of the things that we've learned from Vietnam is to separate the warriors from the war. You can be opposed to the war -- you can disagree with the tactics and the political decision involved -- but the individuals on the battle field are there protecting us," said Spera, an Army veteran who served in Vietnam.
I'll bet he supports and funds the
Genocide of Black American Babies.
The utter hypocrisy of the elitist, collectivist Statists !
Funny how Yahoo rips off Daily Caller by posting articles in full.
Poofter Tucker probably likes it though...
...this military/troop hating politician...politician should have been elitist America hating teacher
Move America Forward has sent over 200 TONS of stuff to our Troops serving around the world.
I miss Lee Rodgers and Melanie Morgan.
My how times have changed. When I read the headline I assumed he meant it was shameful that our troops NEEDED care packages.
What a buffoon.
Melanie is still active, writing articles on Her Web Site
How does one say to this POS that “You live today in the greatest nation in history ONLY because young Americans were called upon to and went around the world to protect YOUR future and to insure that you DID have a future.”
He is too stupid to see the world as it is and be thankful for being here.
But...but...but certainly he can´t mean the gay military. What kind of communist is that?
I have not returned to KSFO since they left.
I listen to it when I am in my car, nine to noon and three to 6. Scratch hannity lol
LIBERAL PROF CALLS CARE PACKAGE DRIVE "SHAMEFUL"
Yesterday news broke that a well-known Massachusetts professor by the name of Michael Avery, who teaches at Suffolk University School of Law, complained in an e-mail to school officials that it was SHAMEFUL to collect care packages for troops serving overseas.
I returned from Afghanistan recently. I know how much our troops value hearing from friends, neighbors, loved ones and even anonymous well-wishers who appreciate the job they are doing. Its sad there are still some people who fail to appreciate the selfless sacrifice of our military, but it makes me angry when they openly campaign to deprive our troops of the love and support they deserve,
- US Senator Scott Brown (R-MA)
Students, troop supporters and military families alike were horrified by his comments. But the best way to react to this man's hateful comments is to do exactly what he argues for us NOT to do...SUPPORT OUR TROOPS.
