No tears for hypocrites

Published 12:00 am Sunday, February 14, 2010

My heart breaks for the faculty at Ole Miss who are concerned about losing their academic freedom with the proposed modification of tenure. These are the hypocrites who demand academic freedom for themselves but would deny it to students, alumni and fans of Ole Miss when it comes to the battle flag, Dixie, Colonel Reb and soon the very name Ole Miss.

If the College Board is sincere, they will do away with tenure altogether and sack Dan Jones and any other faculty member who would deny their students the very academic freedom they crave.

How can the College Board keep a straight face when members say they are concerned with scholastic excellence when they know only a liberal, Northern Establishment view is acceptable? The board members know this is true because Chancellor Jones screams it from the rooftops every chance he gets.
