Someone emailed me this story. The following is from the comments section for that article.
Not that I would ever defend his views, his right to have them and not bepunished for having them is an entirely different matter. There are hundreds, if not thousands, of professors and high school teachers whose views are on the radical left and are just as, if not more offensive, than Dr. McCuen's. Many teachers completely deny the existence of the Holocaust.
Whenever I come across a story like this I strive for accuracy. I'm sure many readers found it offensive to their nature. But people get offended for many different reasons and, sometimes, over mere trivialities. It is interesting that this teacher is vilified for expressing his views while people like Louis Farrakhan can make similar comments and he continues to get support and a somewhat positive media glow.
"Cory's" comment was right on point. People who call Americans terrorists, who say we got we deserved on 9/11 - and other such drivel all get a warm welcome in the MSM. Remember when Ward Churchill called the WTC victims "technocrats" and "little Eichmanns". He even went on to say that American soldiers in battle should kill their commanding officers. The MSM barely uttered a peep about this guy's comments. It was only through bloggers and talk radio that his outrageous views were brought to the light of day. His own university just concluded that Churchill was guilty of research misconduct, which include plagiarism, fabrication, and falsification. The university has yet to determine if Churchill will be even suspended for such remarks - let alone fired.
Still think that there is no agenda in the MSM?
The double standards continue. Leftist opinions are celebrated - Opinions on the Right are denigrated.
