The Left-wing Attitude Toward the Military

Posted: Jan 01, 2011 9:00 AM
College professor Colman McCarthy had an op-ed in the Washington Post over the last week decrying Ivy League schools accepting ROTC and military recruitment on campus in the wake of the overturn of Don't Ask Don't Tell. In it, he reveals his feelings on our military and the brave Americans who sign up to serve.

To oppose ROTC, as I have since my college days in the 1960s, when my school enticed too many of my classmates into joining, is not to be anti-soldier. I admire those who join armies, whether America's or the Taliban's: for their discipline, for their loyalty to their buddies and to their principles, for their sacrifices to be away from home. In recent years, I've had several Iraq and Afghanistan combat veterans in my college classes. If only the peace movement were as populated by people of such resolve and daring.

So there you have it: the elitist liberal college professors equate the discipline and loyalty of America's troops only as they do the same of the Taliban. Disgusting.
