Where the Left is taking us

Reader comment on item: The Rot in Our [Canadian] Universities

Submitted by Jeff M. (United States), Jan 31, 2003 at 08:31

Any one who wonders where the Lefties are taking the West need only look at what they are doing to high school and college campuses.

The current repression of free speech, Christian expression and freedom of association is bound to eventually become justified violence against the groups the Left deems as their enemies. It's ironic that they wrap themselves in their self-rightious flag of tolerance while they figuratively (for now) beat the heads in of their opposition.

I for one am sick and tired of the taxpayer largesse universites and colleges receive. In addition to the (tax-free) endowments in the billions that many universities have, they do not pay any property, sales or any other commumity related taxes, not to mention the billions in grant money footed by you an me. All this while they spit on the rest of us while looking down their pointy noses.

Want to put a REAL DENT into their hateful and unbalanced ways? Support legislation to take away all the tax-free goodies they receive unless they allow the fresh air of freedom into their incestuous hiring and teaching practices. Put a crimp in their tax-free pocket books until they either stop their rotten inbreeding or go out of business.
