When you look for the liberal moron of the week it is hard to make a decision. It is not because it is hard to find liberal morons. It is hard because there are so many of them.
But now, there is one who is this week’s clear winner.
Who is it?
His name is Thomas Walker and he is an English Professor at Iowa State University. At ISU, the College Republicans decided to hold a drive to collect items to send to our troops in Afghanistan.
I read in Tuesday's Iowa State Daily that the College Republicans have begun collecting sundries for U.S. soldiers serving in Afghanistan and Iraq. Why? Doesn't the U.S. Army victual its soldiers? Don't their families send them yuletide goodies? Aren't GIs paid enough to buy what they need, and even what they want?
"As Republicans we believe in charity," stated Jeremy Freeman, a member of the College Republicans. Donating toiletries, boxed and canned foods, socks and beanies to U.S. soldiers who can already deodorize themselves, who eat better than the poorest Americans and who are gallantly garbed, is an eleemosynary travesty.
Necessities should be doled out to people who really need them and who might get them if not for the hundreds of billions of dollars being funneled to the Pentagon in the greatest squandering of money on the planet. If anything, Republicans should sympathize with veterans struggling to find employment, a challenge that may daunt the discharged soldier, who might wish he had reenlisted. Soldiers are to Republicans as fetuses are to them: prized. But once out of the womb-like army, Republican solicitude for hapless veterans goes where extracted zygotes go.
"We get to show the troops we still appreciate what they're doing for us," said another College Republican. What are they doing for us? Nothing. But against us they're doing a lot: creating anti-American terrorists in the countries they occupy. Said the same College Republican, "It can't be fun to be away from your family for the holidays. As if American soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan had been conscripted? They chose to leave home.
Why do Republicans care so much about the military? Because the military-industrial complex is dear to their simplistic laissez-faire fantasies: a bottom-line patriotism that excludes the people at the bottom.
Thomas Walker has the constitutional right to be an idiot. That is a right he seems to exercise on a regular basis. If he wants to be a moron and let everyone know it, he has that right. If he wants to publish his moronic opinions, he is welcome to.
However, the taxpayers of Iowa pay his salary and I bet they are tired of bozos like him who are supposed to be educators, but all too often end up being indoctrinators.
Here is a simple idea. Eliminate his job. He probably has tenure, so he cannot be fired. But his job can be eliminated. If this buffoon outrages the people of Iowa then they should all call their Legislators on Monday and tell them when the Iowa Legislature meets in January and starts working on a budget, there is one position in the Iowa State University English Department that needs to be eliminated.
Perhaps someone should remind Walker of the oft-repeated expression, “It is better to keep your mouth shut and be thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.
Walker has removed all doubt.
You would have to published this...you have me totally confused... was his lack of history of the genorosity of the American people for concerned and showing of appreciation for our fighting men and woman, learned while attending college where he learned to become a DUMB IDIOT or was he scraped from a dumpster where an abortion gone wrong was thrown and he was BORN that way. Inquiring minds want to know.
As will mine
I know first hand what it is to received letter or boxes from home. The job I had it was about on average 2 to 3 months we would get a letter or anything from home . We use to send ourselves post cards just to make sure we got something in the mail months later. Even Dear John letters were something. Went one time for 9 months with no mail. Something from anyone would boost the morale.
Having spent 22 years in the Army , including serving in Vietnam - mail / packages / anything from home / friends / family was like a gift from God.
AND, THAT'S THE GOSPEL TRUTH, MY BROTHER... SEMPER FI....
Here is some fornication under command (of the) king - for you all to fillo-sopich-ically consider: With wide open borders here in America...and The NDAA act going through the HORS right now with the son of perdition - almost sure to sign - are we (militarilly speaking) - SNAFU, TARFU or FUBAR?
...FUBAR dude, definitely FUBAR!!!
Great article Judson, Unfortunatly the whole of the UofI staff seems to lean this way .as a disabled vet I sometimes have to go to Iowa city VA Medical center ,I cant stand to listen to either of our Univerities UofI or IA State radio stations for all the vitoroal towards the right a fellow Vet had his windows smashed out by a student for the crime of having a bumper sticker that red nobama2012.The guilty party tuned out to be an intern attending school there and serving at IA VAmed center.
in fairness I have heard there are suppose to be some who support the troops and are students there.
Unfortunately there are not enough weeks or even days in a year to point out all the liberal Morons that "WE" allow to instruct our nations youth in high schools and colleges. They are the rule rather than the exception.
Judson, You should post a weekly Top Five list of liberal morons, that would be so funny and interesting.
Alec Baldwin surely ran a close second . . . . the idiocy and arrogance of the Left constantly amazes me . . . they keep doing it over and over and over . . . with the same results; i.e., displaying their unAmerican arrogance, attitudes and actions, surely this is the absolute mark of lunacy☺ Is their addiction to Kool-aide the prime mover?
