response from a college student

Reader comment on item: Debating Campus Watch

Submitted by Yonatan Cooper (United States), Oct 4, 2002 at 22:28

As a college student at a typical university, I can say first hand that Mr. Pipes is right on target. Even in my second year at Binghamton University, I have encountered much liberal fanaticism. I have had a professor stand up in front of myself and 500 other students and say that "Jews are responsible for the globalization of the economy" and "Sharon equals Hitler". Enough is enough! All educated people, whether students, professors, Presidents of universities...have the obligation to stand up to those who spout rhetoric filled with half truths and lies. Thank you Mr. Pipes for not being afraid to call these people on their lies. I hope to be able to do the same on my campus. Thats the struggle I face every morning.....
