Democrats defend taxpayer funded financial support for the education of illegal
immigrants while military vets are threatened with college rejection.
The University of Colorado located in Colorado Springs is receiving media coverage after allowing a publication calling for the banning of Military Vets to openly circulate around campus. As a matter of ‘diversity’ colleges are already under racial regulations to not only avoid discrimination but encourage the acceptance of minority’s who are typically awarded scholarships based off of ethnicity and not top performance ratings.
Now the liberal agenda for a more peaceful military approach to global events has snowflakes claiming unease in the classroom when subjected to the presence of military vets. This unease is allegedly based if the possible PTSD mentality often associated with members of combat.
The University of Colorado at Colorado Springs apparently approved the posting of a newsletter around the campus that calls for the banning of U.S. military veterans from attending four-year colleges and universities.
Now the school is trying to wiggle out of it.
As reported by Colorado Springs CBS affiliate KKTV, the newsletter also compares U.S. military culture to that of white supremacist groups.
The newsletter, titled “Social Justice Collective Weekly,” reads:
A four-year, traditional university is supposed to be a place of learning, of understanding, of safety and security. However, there is an element among us who may be frustrating those goals: Veterans.
UCCS is known for its number of veterans who are full and part-time students. But these veterans of much the school prides themselves on may be hurting the university.
First off, many vets openly mock the ideas of diversity and safe spaces for vulnerable members of society. This is directly in contradiction to the mission of UCCS. Many veterans utter the mantra that they, “do not see color.”
But the problem lies in their socialization into the military culture that is that of a white supremacist organization. They have been permanently tainted, and are no longer fit for a four-year university.
Veterans usually have an overwhelming presence in the classroom, which can distract other students. This is usually true for a vulnerable individual such as LGBTQQI2SAA, who have been known to be the butt of insensitive jokes made by veterans.
Blogger Paul J. O’Leary, an Army and law enforcement veteran responded to the newsletter on Friday. In a lengthy post titled “An Open Letter to a UCCS Student,” he wrote, in part:
Isn’t it wonderful that we live in a country where all of us are free to express our opinions in a public forum? Where are we all free to pursue educational excellence?
Why do you feel it is acceptable to minimize the safety and well-being of those who attend trade schools? Are you assuming there are no LGBTQQIP2SAA students going to trade schools?
Do you feel they are somehow less deserving of a safe and flourishing educational environment than their peers in the traditional four-year universities?
Or is the problem that you just feel you and your university student colleagues are simply better than they are? Do you look down from the lofty reaches of your superior school and gaze upon the chattel of humanity with the smugness of uncaring indifference? If so, I suggest you take a long, hard look at yourself and who you want to be.
If black service members make up between 17 and 20 percent of the military, versus 14 percent representation in American society overall, can this truly be described as a white supremacist organization?
With black, female, Hispanic, and Asian service members holding senior leadership positions across a vast spectrum of fields from combat arms to support to administrative, including generals and sergeants major, can this truly be called a white supremacist organization?
This I do know — the veterans you fear and wish to keep from getting the benefits of an education come from many diverse backgrounds. Many of them could not afford college on their own and paid their way through hard work, sweat, and oftentimes blood.
In the parlance of the 21st Century college student, I would ask you to please check your privilege.
