"Veterans Should Be Banned from Universities"

Quote:
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 of the school prides themselves on may be hurting the university.

First off, many veterans 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 long fit for a four-year university.

Second, many students are frightened by the presence of veterans in their classrooms. Veterans usually have an overwhelming presence in the classroom, which can distract other students. This is usually true for vulnerable individual such as LGBTQQI2SAA, who have been known to be the butt of insensitive jokes made by veterans.

Finally, veterans usually are associated with extremists right-wing groups such as the tea party and the NRA. In order to provide a safe place for all students, extremist right-wing groups must be suppressed on campus. This would include their followers: veterans.

That is not to say that veterans should not be allowed an education. Veterans should be allowed to attend trade schools, or maybe even community college. But, in order to protect our academic institutions we must ban veterans from four-year universities.
Above text is from a newsletter left on campus (University of Colorado, Colorado Springs) in multiple spots, approved by the university for posting in the interests of free speech

Quote:
A spokesperson for UCCS said the newsletter has nothing to do with the school and does not represent the institution's views. However, it was approved by the university and posted on a bulletin board.
http://www.kktv.com/content/news/Con...441704493.html

I post the above for two reasons:
1-I'm a veteran and attend UCCS (and support free speech)
2-It shows the extreme viewpoints of those on the extreme left (to be fair, there are certainly those on the extreme right with crazy viewpoints)

Oh, and no surprise, the group behind the posting claims to be for 'Social Justice'

Quote:
The Social Justice Collective Weekly published an article by Terry Steinawitz this week, raising the question "Should Veterans Be Banned from UCCS and Other Universities?"

Great idea, veterans fought to keep you all safe, of course they should be robbed from a new future!

Who ever had this bright idea should be spanked.

That reminds me of what my wife does. At a restaurant, she will order a water and a napkin for that water for everyone at the table. She assumes she knows thats what everyone wants, even though frequently that's not the case. The school may want to counsel that person (the author of the flyer) on sensitivity.

No, spanking was already decided for a fix.

I get that some people are too stupid to understand they are mean, but some things should be kept within the brain.

No "minority" veterans attend the school I assume... or perhaps, since they aren't white, they are forgiven their otherwise unacceptable veteran status...

A bunch of young kids right out of the military do often have trouble adjusting to civilian life, so when a bunch of veterans get together they can get pretty raucous. They are typically A-type personalities and on the right wing spectrum as well, so I can see where the civilian and military ideologies clash.
Both sides could do better about learning how to adjust to one another

I really don't think there is as much overall support for the military as we like to believe.

So in order to not make the lesbian, gay, and transgender students uncomfortable they should not let veterans go to college? I say fine but every one of them need to join the military and be placed on the front line. I know trump doesn't like this but they can have their own division.

Ummm, ok. So why is that the veterans are the wrong ones in the equation? Who are the non-veterans to say we cannot go to school because we are A type and they are not?

I really don't understand the argument that "many students are frightened by the presence of veterans in their classrooms". Even thought I'm not veteran, I went to school where there was a lot of veteran's going there when I got my B.S. I enjoyed veterans in the class because they were able to tell stories about their past, communicate effectively and have a good time while doing so. I think the problem (well for this article is) is that they need to understand their veteran's population. Living up in the PNW, there is a high military "presence" so maybe that might have a factor on it.

So pussies are frightened by real man and women who been through some of lives toughest situations.

Because we tend to grab life by the perpetual balls and tend to be conservative than there must be something wrong with us. No maybe there is something seriously wrong with the spoiled little pussies on campus.

I dont see the point in your #2 reason for posting the article. The article is messed up because it groups all veterans as bad. And here we are perpetuating this name calling and group association again
