View Full Version : Colorado Frenzy

12th September 2003, 07:24 AM
Editor's note: This week there was a flurry of new stories in the state of Colorado about an alleged plot, headed by "conservative hell-raiser" David Horowitz, to impose political quotas on the state's universities and force them to hire conservatives. The plot, which was reported in the Rocky Mountain News, involved meetings Horowitz had last summer with legislators in the state and with its governor about an Academic Bill of Rights. Evidently the reporter who actually hatched this plot did not read carefully or take seriously the aforesaid Academic Bill of Rights, which specifically forbids the hiring of professors on the basis of their politics and hence explicitly bans such quotas. There have now appeared almost a dozen stories on this non-story (some of which we have linked to our lead feature today).

The article that follows is David Horowitz's reply to the disinformation spread through the media campaign. It is scheduled to appear as an op-ed piece in today's Rocky Mountain News. The Denver Post has also covered the story in an article by David Curtain, and covered it correctly, and that article is also included in the links below. Following this story, we link the local media coverage of this case. We then reproduce in full yesterday's Associated Press story correctly covering David Horowitz's position on quotas (against) and a letter-to-the-editor of the Rocky Mountain News from Ryan Call, the Colorado Coordinator for Students for Academic Freedom.

The really interesting dimension of this affair, however, has so far not been covered by the general media (hopefully it will be shortly). Although the school term is hardly a week old, Students for Academic Freedom clubs have sprung up on 70 campuses across the country. Their agenda is to restore the values of academic freedom and disinterested inquiry to our institutions of higher learning, and to do so by promoting the Academic Bill of Rights. Readers can find out more about the mission and activities of these clubs by visiting the website www.studentsforacademicfreedom.org. The text of the Academic Bill of Rights is also available on the site.

Oh, when I saw the title "Colorado Frenzy," I thought maybe this was a new team in the WNBA. Never mind.

Im sure if the title was "America secretly planned 911 to bolster support for a war against Iraq" you'd juice your pants.

I understand now that it's not news unless it fits your political diaper rash support group's agenda, Crossdress.

Why? You do such a fine job yourself.

Edit to add: except for the bit about containing ideas. Unless by 'ideas' you mean cutting-and-pasting from someone else's site.

you guys are so predictable, pretentious and boring. ;)

thanks again for ruining my thread and not discussing it.

You never say anything, Nie. You paste other peoples' ideas and want us to discuss that. Don't you have a mind of your own? Why not tell us what you think for a change?

Well, no-one says you have to. But no-one says anyone has to take you seriously, either.

WTF!?

Did I miss something? When did NTW become obsessed with Crossbow to the point he started feminizing him (or at least a representation of him)?

Is this a 3rd grade crush type thing?

Okay NTW I'm game, point me to a thread where you actually say something, and that doesn't include a cut & paste from someone else with no comment other than "Read this I think it's interesting", or "you guys are morons", or "I hate you all", or variations on that theme. Point me to something you've said that's your own original thought and doesn't involve insulting someone else on the forum.

Please.

I'll be waiting.

Patiently.

I am beginning to wonder that myself because so far I have seen him post that same picture and use that same pun ("Crossdress") about a dozen times.

A few days ago I suggested that he see a therapist since so many of his postings revolved around sexuality issues and I have noticed that has been decidedly more quiet on this topic. However, judging by this current display, it may be time to get his prescription renewed.

Is this a 3rd grade crush type thing? It's better/worse than you think. NTW went so far as to create a sockpuppet of "Crossdress".

It's less a crush and more a creepy "Single White Female" thing.

That's probably because you're a one-trick pony.

No clue at all. I missed the irony. Dare I say - please explain yourself. (Oh, wait, we settled that you have no original ideas already.)
