In the New York Post the other day, an article ran explaining that our colleges have become breeding grounds for teaching our kids that somehow the US is responsible for the events of 9/11.
The article stars UNC associate English professor Neel Ahuja who focuses on “post-colonial” studies. He teaches a class called “The Literature of 9/11.” In his class he accuses the U.S. of using the term terrorist to animalize them.
Going on he critiques the U.S. bombings as unjustified. Concerned students stood up.
“These readings offer points of view that justify terrorism, paint the United States and its government as wholly evil and immoral and desecrate the memory of the victims of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks…There is not a single reading required that focuses on the lives of the victims, the victim’s [sic] families, American soldiers (or) families of American soldiers,” they added. “Nor is there a perspective that portrays the United States as acting in good faith before, during and after the Sept. 11 attacks.”
Let us know in the comments below if you had a professor like this back in school…I know I did.
From the NY Post:
Not all of us will be mourning 9/11 victims and their families this Friday on the 14th anniversary of the attacks. Hundreds of college kids across the country will instead be taught to sympathize with the terrorists.
That’s because their America-hating leftist professors are systematically indoctrinating them into believing it’s all our fault, that the US deserved punishment for “imperialism” — and the kids are too young to remember or understand what really happened that horrific day.
Case in point is a freshman-level English class taught at several major universities across the country called “The Literature of 9/11” — which focuses almost entirely on writings from the perspective of the Islamic terrorists, rather than the nearly 3,000 Americans who were slaughtered by them.
