Liberals Now Want To BAN VETERANS From Going To College

The University of Colorado at Colorado Springs apparently approved the posting of a newsletter around the campus that calls for the banning of U.S. military veterans from attending four-year colleges and universities.



Now the school is trying to wiggle out of it. As reported by Colorado Springs CBS affiliate KKTV, the newsletter also compares U.S. military culture to that of white supremacist groups.

The newsletter, titled “Social Justice Collective Weekly,” reads: 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 the school prides themselves on may be hurting the university. [sic]

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.

The flyer also claims “students are frightened by the presence of veterans in their classrooms,” particularly members of the “LGBTQQI2SAA” community: 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. Then it was back to connecting dots between veterans and “right-wing groups”: 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.

Out of the goodness of the organization’s collective heart, veterans should be “allowed” to attend trade schools: 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.


After the newsletter made its rounds on social media, school Chancellor Venkat Reddy attempted to distance the university from the newsletter — although the university requires its approval of all flyers posted on campus — in a written statement.

Reddy said the university “vigorously rejects the offensive viewpoints expressed in the flyer,” and defended military veterans as “positive and valued members of our academic and campus community.”

The chancellor also said the university “rejects the notion that we should censor those who denigrate others, as censorship would have silenced many voices over the decades who needed to be heard.”

One wonders if the chancellor and his colleagues extend the same belief to Confederate monuments and white nationalist groups, but we digress. Blogger Paul J. O’Leary, an Army and law enforcement veteran responded to the newsletter on Friday. In a lengthy post titled “An Open Letter to a UCCS Student,” he wrote, in part:

Isn’t it wonderful that we live in a country where all of us are free to express our opinions in a public forum? Where we are all free to pursue educational excellence? […] Why do you feel it is acceptable to minimize the safety and well-being of those who attend trade schools? Are you assuming there are no LGBTQQIP2SAA students going to trade schools? Do you feel they are somehow less deserving of a safe and flourishing educational environment than their peers in the traditional four-year universities?

Here's the link to the local news organization, don't want the Leftists here to think this is a phony article.

When looking for a second source for this article I was appalled to see that this attitude towards our Veteran's has been going on for quite some time, many links came up going back years.

THIS is what the Democratic party has come to.

If they are successful in doing this, they will also ban Policeman, Fireman, Construction workers and anyone else that is of strong will and/or brave.

The left started this wussification mantra years ago. I believe they now call it Toxic masculinity.

The replies to this from the right wing mouth breathers will be interesting.....

Interesting your choice of adjectives to describe those with whom you disagree.

Perhaps then you could come down from your high perch and enlighten us with your superior brilliance. As you seem to have information that is missing from the original article, perhaps you could provide something other than just your word for it that the University Chancellor rejected this proposal. In other words, do you have a link to back up your assertion? Or are we just to take your word for it?

Regardless of that however, this action does show the lengths the left will go to silence those on the right. That in itself should be troubling to you. Perhaps the Chancellor was a Conservative and was the only thing keeping this from seeing the light of day? Just because they failed to get it implemented does not lessen the impact that left leaning proposals such as the one referenced in the article, are not being considered at that university or many others.

If you are concerned about the rule of law in this country, this should concern you also.

Hey, notice to the stupid's out there. The fact that the subject was even broached for discussion is an abysmal observation of the times.

Mouth Breathers??? I have no idea why that handicap is any different from any other. Much less why you feel it is derogatory.


Please, if you want any credibility you might try to stop degrading your correspondents here. Some of us are veterans or first responders.

Pointing out the fact that this ilk is prevalent among his supporters isn't anything special...


And this link being the garbage that it is isn't really worth arguing about....

These invented strawmen that get bantered about don't really add up to much more than a hill of beans....

Some fringe group posted a letter on a public bulletin board. Nothing to see here folks.

Fact is, UCCS is very veteran friendly. As is all of CU.

As if this trait or condition is reserved for those of us that care about the direction of the education system in this country.

Yet, here you are.

And still no link to your assertion. Should we then assume that you fabricated your original position? That would put you in the company of the House Impeachment managers as they have demonstrated the same characteristic in their attempt to persuade the Senate to do their bidding.
