An open thought for those on the left. Congratulations to Jesse McLain for telling the story of Harvard University President Larry Summers. It illustrates magnificently the hypocrisy of the left.
Summers made statements, which he prefaced by saying they were intended to arouse discussion, telling us of the studies done that indicate that there might actually be differences between boys and girls, and the liberals in academia are screaming for his resignation. How dare he?!
Yet in our own lovely state Ward Churchill compares innocent victims who fell 80 stories to their death rather than being burned alive as "little Eichmanns," and when there is backlash, liberals nationwide come to his aid and hail him as the hero of free speech that he is. People of the left have to start understanding that you can't have it both ways; you can't call for the resignation of one man who used his free speech to say what science has been attempting to prove, while simultaneously defending a man whose publicity stunt he hoped would boost book sales.
Is Mr. Summers right? Someday we may know. Is Mr. Churchill right? Try proving that one. Simply because you may or may not agree with what Mr. Summers said, it doesn't mean he should lose his job. Isn't that just the kind of narrow-minded thinking that you accuse us on the right of?
