Rutgers Professor Claims U.S. Worse Than ISIS
Every now and again, we get a special glimpse at the kind of anti-American extremists populating our nation’s higher learning institutions. And every time one of these academics displays their true colors in public, it seems the problem is getting worse. We’re not talking garden-variety liberalism, here. We’re talking about disgusting, unpatriotic fanaticism.
Consider the latest professor to wind up embroiled in controversy. Rutgers’ own Deepa Kumar tweeted the following in March:
Yes ISIS is brutal, but US is more so, 1.3 million killed in Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan #NoToWar
In addition to teaching media studies, Kumar is known as the author of a book titled Islamophobia and the Politics of Empire. And after her March tweet came under scrutiny, it was revealed that Kumar has a history of this kind of speech. On Facebook last year, she commented on a Medium.com article:
“Okay, I’m sold on using the term ‘douchebag’ to describe rich, white entitled males and their misogynistic, racist behavior!”
In another Facebook rant, she referred to Ayaan Hirsi Ali – a former Muslim who has been highly critical of female genital mutilation – as an “islamophobe and native informant.”
Kumar, like any other American, has the right to her opinion. Though she claims that Fox News is attempting to “silence” her and other academics through their reporting, nothing of the kind is happening. She can speak her mind and Americans can label her an extremist wacko if the shoe fits. As for Fox News, it is only due to their commitment to conservative causes that we know how bad the current academic environment really is.
Unfortunately, this kind of ideology is starting to trickle down into our public schools. Liberals have been highly successful in indoctrinating young college minds, but they see an opportunity to start even sooner. Using an increasingly-federalized education system, they are busy turning our history books into tomes that would make Noam Chomsky proud. Get ’em while they’re young. It’s a foolproof plan.
Whether Kumar suffers any consequences for her philosophy or not is beside the point. What matters now is that Americans become fully aware of what’s going on at Rutgers and other left-wing institutions of learning. What’s going on in our local schools. And parents need to be particularly wary of the garbage being taught to their children. It’s so important to discuss politics and values at home. If you let your kids get their first exposure to this kind of thinking from school, it’s too late. They may wind up with a woman like Kumar as their teacher.
In fact, with the way things are going, they probably will. Only if they have a firm base of knowledge and philosophy to begin with will they be able to resist this alluring extremism.
