You sir, are a threat to freedom

Reader comment on item: Profs Who Hate America
in response to reader comment: "Academic Freedom"

You sir, are a threat to freedom. There may be a time and a place to say anything, but anytime anyone, even you, sir, tell us when and where to say things - you are a threat to freedom.

Did you ever hear of free speech? Perhaps you should have gotten a job with the Gestapo, or Homeland Security. Perhaps these professors should be deemed threats and taken off to the many secret jails in our country.

Many Americans sacrificed their lives in the Revolution so profs can speak freely and criticize our government.

There is a time and place to say things, and you are not the one to say when and where. No one is. It is a matter of individual choice. It may offend people. Oh well. I am offended by the illegal war in Iraq.

Any time you start policing people's spoken and written language, you close the door on freedom and open the door to tyranny and totalitarianism.

I am against the war in Iraq. I go to church twice a week. I don't like America, either.

Please come and arrest me. I am willing to jail and willing to die for my freedoms.

Chris Colna
