The First Amendment: Owned By the Left?
...because honestly and truly it really seems as if they believe it is. They are known for their rallies and marches (most conservatives work on weekdays and can't do that sort of thing)...yet when the right does rally or march the left is there blocking, tearing down signs and trying to stop it altogether. I've never really understood this phenomenon...
Now, even professors of higher education seem to be claiming the right of Free Speech for the left...
"A college professor at Northern Kentucky University encouraged her students to vandalize a pro-life display members of the campus Right to Life group set up to oppose abortion.
Not content with urging students to trash the memorial, Dr. Sally Jacobsen participated in the vandalism and was caught on camera by reporters from the student newspaper.
Members of the Northern Right to Life, the campus pro-life group, set up hundreds of crosses on a campus lawn to memorialize the babies who have died from abortion since Roe v. Wade.
After Dr. Jacobson and NKU students destroyed the display, members of the group decided put new crosses up in their place and camp out overnight on Thursday to make sure they weren't vandalized again.
The student group also told The Northerner student newspaper it plans to press charges with local police." (source)
The Pro-choicers need to calm down...apparently even if Roe V. Wade was overturned tomorrow abortion would still be legal in 42 states...
And for more kooky college professor news, we turn to Sweetness & Light to read about a college professor who asked this question on an exam:
"Condoleezza holds a watermelon just over the edge of the roof of the 300-foot Federal Building, and tosses it up with a velocity of 20 feet per second."
