Maybe.

The California school that employs a professor accused of attacking a teen-aged pro-life demonstrator has issued an apology…sort of.

In a long-winded 1,000-word letter that reads more like a diatribe than a mea culpa, University of California at Santa Barbara Vice Chancellor Michael Young eventually conceded that women’s studies professor Mireille Miller-Young should not have snatched a pro-life sign from 16-year-old Thrin Short, giving backhanded praise to the framers of the Constitution.

“Our Founding Fathers – all white men of privilege, some even slave owners – got it right when designing the First Amendment of the Constitution,” Young wrote in an open memo to the student body.

The price of freedom of speech, Young was enlightened enough to acknowledge, is that students, staff and faculty must tolerate “outside groups and individuals coming here to promote an ideology, to promulgate particular beliefs (at times extreme beliefs), or simply to create discord that furthers a certain personal agenda.”

“Some passionately believe in their causes, while others peddle hate and intolerance with less-than-noble aims,” Young added, mentioning “evangelical types.”

Leftists (especially academics) are rarely sorry for their un-American behavior, they’re just sorry when they get caught with bad optics. Like an alleged grown-up ripping a sign from a 16 year-old girl’s hand while berating her as she exercises a Constitutional right.

That the Vice Chancellor had to get in a dig at the Founding Fathers before he could say anything nice about them show just what a pathetic bunch of pukes are running higher education in this country.

Quick question for the readers: are there any feminist studies professors who aren’t angry all the time?!?

There's nothing wrong with feminism. The problem is with the bigots among them and the institutional credibility granted that bigotry.

The apology itself was as bigoted as a KKK pamphlet and the reason is because that sort of thing has been institutionalized. There is no sense of right and wrong here every one can share in. There are right and wrong races and genders.

The Founding Fathers were white supremacists? More than native Americans were Amerindian supremacists, or Ottoman Turks? All had slaves. Only one of the three ended slavery globally. But look who takes it on the chin and who walks away Mr. Cleanhands. Aren't radical feminists female supremacists?

Right and wrong are separated from events and individuals and smeared good and bad onto groups en masse. Law says you arrest individuals, not groups. That college is a KKK Mr. Rogers neighborhood-style. It's still the same thing.

My best guess is that UCSB's lawyers grabbed the administration by the nearest handhold, shook them severely, and explained that the evil, Right Wing, demon-spawn who had held the sign sadly still had rights under American law; and that it was possible that there could also be civil suit for damages. And that it would be helpful if the University made a public statement separating itself from Miller-Young's actions, lest they accrue some liability for her actions. The sarcastic, Leftist screed from Young was the closest thing that he could come up with acknowledging that non-Leftists were human beings and were covered by the Constitution without his head exploding from ideological cognitive dissonance. The school will find some way to make up for this by abusing some other member of the Kulak class that falls into their clutches. They are truly not our countrymen.

========================

In my experience (years ago) most profs were pretty nasty - easily upset if you called them out on their 'facts'. And that was in the late 70's early 80's. I had to take an anthropology class to get my degree - I chose NW Indian culture. The prof (a woman) railed almost daily about how the Indians got screwed by 'witey' (her words & my spelling - the spelling nazi does not allow this 'racist term') - I politely asked her one day when she was going to get back on track - I nearly flunked that class and I was a 3.4 average student. Had I not lobbied the Dean I would have. Him and her 'settled' on a D+ for me.

I'm still trying to figure out how the hell any of those women are going to make a living (other than being a prof - obviously) with a sheep-skin with a major in Women's Studies. Maybe they can sell cosmetics after graduation.

How very gracious!

I say we take off and nuke UC Santa Barbara from orbit...it's the only way to be sure.

The Vice Chancellor is without a doubt a product of higher academia:
A 1,000 word essay instead of a simple "We're sorry."

"“Our Founding Fathers – all white men of privilege, some even slave owners –..."

This makes my blood boil every time some lefty douchetard says it. The Founders, by and large, absolutely were men of privilege. They were generally well off, owning land and businesses. This makes them even MORE heroic.

Why? Because they had everything to gain from continuation of the status quo. To men like Washington, Jefferson and Adams things like the Stamp Act were little more than annoyances. An economic aggivation, yes, but hardly enough to put them in the poor house (and orders of magnitute less invasive than today's taxation, even pre-Obamacare). If they had all just shut up and paid the few pennies of tax they could have continued their lives of ease and comfort.

But they didn't. They traded that comfort and security for hardship and uncertainty to undertake an enterprise that was most likely to end with a trip to the gallows. All to fight for the principle that men should be free to govern themselves.

So, if you'll pardon my saying so, Michael Young can go @#%$ a bag of @%$#. He's not fit to launder the Founders' knickers, much less judge what they "got right".

Guess the race of the letter writer.

Oh wait. You don't have to guess. Here:

If the ground opened up and swallowed the Vice Chancellor and the Professor, the world would be completely unaffected, save that it would be a slightly freer place.

I had a political science professor who taught feminist pollitical theory, and she was an absolute howl. One minute she would be deadly serious about some point, and the next, she would be cracking a joke. She was comfortable with herself and her place in life.

Well, they kind of did. There was a different culture at work, one that did not value private property and followed the food where ever it would go. That discussion must have been had, but it isn't ascendant in our culture. This is the major point between "us and them"; do you value property rights or food rights? I value private property.

"Well they kind of did " Do these people like the eye glasses, science/art of Medicine and Dentistry, literacy and stuff that witey brings with him? One supposes they kind of do, but some of them will never say thanks for that.

Meanwhile, graduates with these degrees in 'Studies' (are there any other kinds of degrees?) can seek work in government and large corporations having Outreach, Equal Opportunity (for thee but not for me), and Affirmative Action departments.

And a question: Given that the history of peoples all contain numerous and varied practices of involuntary servitude, can any one honestly claim that an ancestor of theirs never ever engaged in one of those practices, be those ancestors, for example, Vikings or Moors?

The fact is that American Indians who assimilated to the superior culture that dominated the geographic region often did very well for themselves. They could have participated in our government (except for the office of the President). Those who chose not to assimilate and to cling to a far inferior culture were miserable and their lives ended brutally - either by American soldiers by any of the other myriad brutal ways their lives normally ended.

When European culture met a culture that did not even have the wheel, the result was a foregone conclusion.
