Those who call themselves Liberals or Progressives are simply unbelievable,

The chairman of the Boulder Faculty Assembly at the University of Colorado said he feels a blog post written by Steven Hayward, the school's first-ever visiting scholar of conservative thought, borders on hate speech.

The day after CU Student Government leaders spoke out against Hayward's "oppressive and discriminatory" ideas, the Boulder Faculty Assembly discussed statements made by the professor and whether it should respond officially as a faculty group.

"I found this offensive, bordering on what I think most people would say is hate speech," Chairman Paul Chinowsky told the group during a meeting Thursday. "If any (other) faculty member said this, we would find ourselves in a dean's office or possibly on suspension for writing this. I applaud the students for having the nerve to stand up to this. The question is, are we going to allow this or condone this from someone in our own faculty?"

Chinowsky said he couldn't believe what he read in Hayward's blog post, titled "Off on a gender-bender," on the website Powerline.

In the post, Hayward poked fun at the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community -- referring to the community as "LGBTQRSTUW (or whatever letters have been added lately)" -- and expressed his discomfort and confusion with university training about how to respect a student's gender identity...

Chinowsky opened up the meeting Thursday for discussion about what, if any, action should be taken by the faculty.

In addition to dealing with this claque of totalitarians, Dr Hayward had best watch his back as physical violence against him by the Tolerance Crowd is always a possibility.

The purpose of Newspeak was not only to provide a medium of expression for the world-view and mental habits proper to the devotees of Ingsoc, but to make all other modes of thought impossible.
