Deplorable: Gender Studies Prof Rips Down 9/11 Memorial Posters

By Rick Pearcey • September 12, 2016, 09:50 AM

Peter van Voorhis reports at Campus Reform:

Students told Campus Reform that the perpetrator was Margot Lovett, a gender studies and humanities professor who has a history of controversial actions on campus. Notably, OC Weekly reported in 2001 that she had promulgated a statement by the Black Radical Congress to her colleagues blaming "U.S. Imperialism" for the 9/11 attacks.

"After ripping down the posters, video footage of the incident reveals that the professor came over to tell the students that they were not allowed to put up posters on that part of campus, because it was not a free speech zone," Voorhis reports.

This professor's actions reflect hatred for human freedom and dignity, including the freedom to speak your mind on campus and the dignity to advocate for your principles in public places.

No one would deny this professor's unalienable right to free speech. A free society, however, in no way can allow her to trample upon that very same freedom when affirmed and practiced by those with whom she disagrees.

The professor may be unaware of it, but she has intrinsic dignity because she is made -- and factually knowably so -- in the image of God. Her actions are deplorable because they war against that image.

Her actions are an attack on the freedom and dignity of the human being as human being.

If allowed to reach their natural theoretical and practical conclusions, her political correctness would result in great and gross inhumanity (for example, see the Soviet gulag, Pol Pot's killing fields, the socialist concentration camps of the Nazis, America's abortion industry, and more).

I wish the professor had left that sign alone. Let it stand. Let it speak. Be thankful, and glory in, the fact that you are human being.
