It appears that, without question, Professor Daly is suffering from Paranoid Marxist Syndrome, which is also known as PMS.
For those who have never considered the similarities between radical Muslims and radical Marxists, it is time to take heed. While the attacks of the former have been well-documented over the last few years, insufficient attention has been paid to the attacks of the latter.
Our college campuses have become the last safe haven of Marxists, largely because its adherents have never had to survive in the real world, much less in a communist dictatorship. Indeed, there are more communists teaching in the State of North Carolina than there are in the former Soviet Union.
Look carefully at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Few campuses have more avowed Marxists within the ranks of the faculty. And few schools have done more to present a kinder, gentler version of Islam – one that omits every reference to the killing of “infidels.”
And the same pattern seen in comparisons between different schools can be seen within them as well. As one who teaches at a school with fewer Marxists than UNC-CH, a similar pattern emerges. The proponents of Marxism are also the greatest supporters of those who kill our troops in Iraq.
For the most part, academics are silent about the blood-letting that inevitably ensues once a nation is governed by radical Islam or by the principles of Marxism. And if anyone dares to state the obvious, the subsequent willingness to distort the “atrocities” of this nation knows no bounds. That is why colleges tolerate the likes of Professor Daly.
At some point we must ask ourselves why it is that simultaneous sympathy for both radical Islam and radical Marxism is to be found almost solely on the campuses of the nation most responsible for the existence of Israel and the non-existence of the Berlin Wall.
Few who listen to the words of radical Muslims and radical Marxists can find comfort in the fact that so many who belong in mental institutions reside comfortably in our institutions of higher learning.
And that is really the problem. Very few are listening.
