The students’ own university having them arrested and beaten for exercising their right to speak — not a very enlightened act.

Ugly, ugly, ugly. The notion that the protesters were trespassing on CUNY’s traditions of academic liberty is completely baked. No one disrupted his classes–they’re going on just fine. They’re just hollering at him when he walks on a public street & protesting his presence, not preventing him from “teaching.”

Do I understand from your post that he returned the offensively high paycheck?

I’m not particularly sympathetic to their calling him a “war criminal,” a charge that seems way overblown. His civilian masters bear more responsibility than he does, as they’re the ones who gave him his marching orders. However, I’m glad the students got up in his face, because it’s ridiculous that 1) he was hired as a celebutante teacher for such a lavish price, when 2) he’s never indicated any interest in higher ed before.

Universities should not make themselves available to help fallen idols rehabilitate their reputations. They only make themselves look desperate and cheapen the work that real professors do.

What can a General do with people he can’t punish or threaten or shoot? Must be infuriating.
