This is not my idea of free speech...

I will continue to expose your right-wing, anti-people politics until groups like your won't dare show their face on a college campus.

This was in an e-mail from a Community College professor to a student. Here's the whole thing:

Dear Rebecca:

I am asking my students to boycott your event. I am also going to ask others to boycott it. Your literature and signs in the entrance lobby look like fascist propaganda and is extremely offensive. Your main poster "Communism killed 100,000,000" is not only untrue, but ignores the fact that CAPITALISM has killed many more and the evidence for that can be seen in the daily news papers. The U.S. government can fly to dominate the people of Iraq in 12 hours, yet it took them five days to assist the people devastated by huricane Katrina. Racism and profits were key to their priorities. Exxon, by the way, made $9 Billion in profits this last quarter--their highest proft margin ever. Thanks to the students of WCCC and other poor and working class people who are recruited to fight and die for EXXON and other corporations who earning megaprofits from their imperialist plunders. If you want to count the number of deaths based on political systems, you can begin with the more than a million children who have died in Iraq from U.S.-imposed sanctions and war. Or the million African American people who died from lack of access to healthcare in the US over the last 10 years.

I will continue to expose your right-wing, anti-people politics until groups like your won't dare show their face on a college campus. Real freedom will come when soldiers in Iraq turn their guns on their superiors and fight for just causes and for people's needs--such freedom fighters can be counted throughout American history and they certainly will be counted again.

Prof. John Daly

Wow...I'm glad this english prof has such a wonderful grasp on economics, social studies, history, and political science. If he had a better graps, I'm sure he would note that the majority of recruits come from middle and upper middle class (as opposed to "working class"...where does this guy live? France?).

As for the capitalism has killed more...well, considering all the purges from Stalin, the Chinese, and N. Koreans, I really doubt capitalism would be even close. Mostly because capitalism requires consumers to work...and that's where profits come from. Killing consumers is bad economics, bad cost effectiveness, and not very nice.

He then follows up with the federal government "takes too long" arguement...totally ignoring the fact that states are supposed to be prepared for up to 5-days to get help. Or is this just something that all us who live in Tornado Alley are familiar with.

I have one statement on healthcare...if the government would stop giving it out for free, the price would come down. I pay $100 a month for my personal policy.

I like how he really endorses freedom of speech and promotes intolerance at the end...oh, wait.
