This is a really good point. My take on this is that sometimes in life we need a drill sergeant.
Check it out:
Okay, the AD at Rutgers has been canned along with the head basketball coach, so they’re both gone. The AD who hired the coach, the coach’s name is Rice, Mike Rice is gone. The AD is Pernetti. So the head coach Rice was cursing the players. He was yelling at the players, throwing basketballs at them in practice. He’s screaming at them during games. The call from faculty members and politicians to get rid of him grew louder yesterday, a day after he was fired for mistreating players, for shoving them. He berated them with gay slurs, called them insulting gay names. Sayonara, he’s out of there. And today the AD, athletic director, is gone.
Now, granted, if you wanted to say that this was abuse of the players, you could. Snerdley, I had not heard of this story ’til anybody else did. The video surfaced on ESPN. They’d had their 60 Minutes type show, Outside the Lines. Were any of the players complaining publicly? Some have written in his defense afterward? What, some of the players are tweeting even now that the coach didn’t deserve to be fired? It got me to thinking. You know, all of this hysteria about the players being screamed at, having basketballs thrown at them, insults thrown at them, it’s not surprising that the left would be filled with hysterics over this.
But, you know, folks, here I am in my Captain Stir It Up mode here. The fact is that each and every day in some college campus all over this country these same outraged faculty members posing as educators are abusing potentially millions of college students by discounting, ridiculing, teasing, intimidating, threatening failure. How many students are assaulted verbally by professors for ideological reasons? We’ve had students call here over the course of this program, and we’ve all read stories about professors that intellectually berate students and so forth, mocked and made fun of if they’re Christians. And, by the way, stigmatized, pointed at in class if they hold Christian or conservative values, mocked, laughed, made fun of, because everybody knows the intent of modern propagandists — educators — today is to beat those ideas out of young skulls full of mush.
