Not All Professors are PC

It seems that not all professors are fooled by the kind of PC nonsense that groups like CAIR would like to blind us with. The letter below was written by a professor at Michigan State University with regard to a planned protest by a student Muslim group about the Danish Muhammed cartoons:

Dear Moslem Association:

As a professor of Mechanical Engineering here at MSU I intend to protest your protest. I am offended not by cartoons, but by more mundane things like beheadings of civilians, cowardly attacks on public buildings, suicide murders, murders of Catholic priests (the latest in Turkey!), burnings of Christian churches, the continued persecution of Coptic Christians in Egypt, the imposition of Sharia law on non-Muslims, the rapes of Scandinavian girls and women (called "whores" in your culture), the murder of film directors in Holland, and the rioting and looting in Paris France.

This is what offends me, a soft-spoken person and academic, and many, many, many of my colleagues. I counsel you dissatisfied, aggressive, brutal, and uncivilized slave-trading Moslems to be very aware of this as you proceeded with your infantile "protests." If you do not like the values of the West — see the 1st Amendment — you are free to leave.

I hope for God's sake that most of you choose that option.

Please return to your ancestral homelands and build them up yourselves instead of troubling Americans.

Cordially,

I. S. Wichman, Professor of Mechanical Engineering

I love it! And, according to Snopes.com, this e-mail is not a fake. Poor Wichman was a bit dismayed that this e-mail was made public:

"I used strong language in a private communication that I would certainly not have used if this communication would have gone public. ... For the record, I thought it was a private communication and it was written in haste. I think a very minor thing has been blown completely out of proportion. I wrote it in 60 seconds. It was not like I sat and pondered over this thing for days. It was like you talking one night to your wife or your kids."

(Note to all: In this day and age, don't e-mail anything if you are worried about privacy of the contents!)

In any case, the Muslim Students' Association and other groups are calling for official condemnation from MSU, but the university says it will take no action, as the e-mail was a private communication and did not reflect the university's view.

This will be something to watch. I am sure the Muslim groups calling for him to be officially reprimanded will not be dissuaded so easily. Congratulations are to be extended to MSU for supporting one of its faculty in a matter that most definitely falls under the category of free speech.

No, we're not all PC (though we have to work with the most PC intense rules and regulations that exist in the US) and we're not all even liberals. That is old news, though. And he was reprimanded.

This was the first I had seen this e-mail...so he did get an official reprimand? I had heard he was just cautioned.

No, you yourself are proof that not all professors are PC! Unfortunately, this is what it seems like from outside the fishbowl!
