#1 Sounds like he used official email to make a threat of violence, creating a hostile environment to work and learn in - a hate crime. All of the rules and punishments for hate speech and hate crimes and un-PC thought which have been so misused need to be properly brought to bear on this little man and crush him and his career. If the school admin refuses, the Justice Dept needs to be brought in. Enjoy your 15 minutes of spotlight, cockroach Professor Vawter

#4 When faced w/superior logic and rationale, always refer to your opponents as just plain "stupid". No better way to display your own intellectual superiority then by the art of the blanket epitaph......

#5 'Called for Republicans to be forcibly lobotomized.' This is to 'level' the intellectual playing field between Liberal and Conservatives.

#6 "..a Wells professor distributed a campus-wide email calling for Republicans to be forcibly lobotomized..”

Such actions would only create more Democrats.

#7 "the study they had conducted of the political party registrations of the social sciences and humanities faculties" well DUH! That should be a REAL BIG surprise--why don't they take the survey at the College of Business Administration? I went to biz school and was subjected to all kinds of idiotic Conservative quackery like: " the Democrats always leave deficits, supply side/trickle down/voodoo economics, Adam Smith as God and I didn't complain like these crybabies!

#9 C'mon guys, it's Wells College. Who actually gives a shit? Hands?...
Unfortunately, Wells College is NOT unique, or even outside the 'mainstream'. This is the attitude of more college professors than just those at Wells College. They are teaching this crap to a continuing flow of young minds as they pass through our university system. They are doing their best to create the next generation in their image. Thankfully, after four years of this crap, these young people hit the real world, and have their egos deflated about 99%. "Thank you, and we'll keep your resume on file if we ever need a person with a degree in 14th century Tibetan literature."

Two things today's colleges fail at more than ever: they don't want people to learn to think for themselves, so they discourage it, and they don't want conservative messages anywhere NEAR the campus, afraid some poor little 20-year-old dweeb will hear something that conflicts with the mass hysteria preached (most appropriate word) on campus. The biggest suckers are the parents that still send Johnny or Jane to school to get an education. They should all sue for fraud.

#10 Come on OP, tell us what you really feel. Don't hold back now!

There is nothing more satisfying than watching a recent collage grad's face when he finally realizes that he is not 'Gods Gift to -insert-profession-here-" but rather just another average joe... and not a very good one at that.

#11 I can't get into this conservative crusade to take back the campuses. One of Mark Steyn's great themes is his line:
"Remind me to never complain about liberal media bias again..."

He revisits this theme after every Republican electoral victory.

I suspect that the same applies to Radical Lefty control of education. Sure there are some harmful consequences but we exaggerate the grip these people have over young people's minds. In fact, there is reason to suspect that they are inadvertently helping America shift to the right. I was subjected to large doses of neo-Marxistinfluenced indoctrination education. The result was more like an immunity shot or getting the chicken pox. I suspect it's that way for a large majority of American college kids. The lefties are now the old, tired, pathetic scolds with the cement-headed ideology. Young people will rebel from that, they will be repulsed by it. Those that don't will as soon as they go out into the real world. Of course, the one's that stay lefty probably wont make it in the real world and go on to graduate school - which ensures that the institution will remain dominated by these groups.

In any event, as mojo indicates. These campaigns for fairness smack too much of whining.

#12 I can't get into this conservative crusade to take back the campuses.
Truthfully, neither can I. I'm well beyond going back to college, and the only child I have left that might be interested plans to go into the sciences, where this crap has less of a death-grip. Still, I think it's grossly unfair to the parents to part with $40-$50,000 for a four-year indoctrination course in bullshit cubed. I'm also quite tired of having to explain to each of the nutcakes that calls my telephone number trying to sell me something that a), no I don't want a new chinchilla bedcover, and b), yes, I understand you got gyped in college, so sue THEM, don't CALL me. I'm also tired of the snide comments and arrogant looks when I drive through the local ultra-liberal college campus (sits right smack dab between the two main streets downtown, and spreads out beyond both) with my DV plates. I've done more, made more happen that has affected this world for the good than 99% of these idiots can imagine. They have no clue - it's just automatic to them: DV plates, base sticker = former military = loser.

I want to be there the first time they get turned down for a job because they have no education. Give me my 30 seconds to gloat over reality versus life on college campuses. Sweet Victory!

#13 OP, I thought you resided in Louisiana? I didn't know they had any ultra-lib colleges in Bayou country. I thought LA Tech was good ole down home conservative college.

#14 Jarhead, I grew up about twelve miles north of Alexandria, La, but left home at the tender young age of 17. Colorado's been "home" since about 1965, solidified by marrying a 'native' in '66. I currently live in Colorado Springs. I do have (far too) many connections to Louisiana, including both my relatives and some of my wife's, plus a few small pieces of property and a load of folks in a Pineville cemetary. It'll never be home again, though. If possible, I plan to ditch Colorado Springs for somewhere smaller - still in Colorado, but with a population of 500 or less.

There are three ultra-liberal colleges in Louisiana: two in New Orleans (Tulane, New Orleans Theological Semitary), and one in Natchitoches (Northwestern Louisiana State). Might be more, but I don't go there often enough to find them.
