Political Payback

– Oregon Style

by Paul Driessen - April 23rd, 2011 -

Confused visitors will be forgiven for thinking Oregon State University is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Congressman Pete DeFazio and the “progressive-socialist” wing of the Democratic Party. Or for likening what’s going on there to political retribution as practiced in Third World thugocracies.

The idea that three outstanding students – PhD candidates at OSU – could face dismissal, and worse, shortly before receiving their degrees, is simply shocking. That this could be happening because their father had the temerity to challenge an entrenched 12-term Democratic congressman (and OSU earmark purveyor) could make people think the university is in Zimbabwe, not America.

This story is infuriating. It is a perfect example of the hatred that flows from those who embrace the progressive ideology. The constant Alinsky smears, the double standard with which they practice the techniques of intimidation and denial of free speech to others, the hate filled demonstrations and the deceit in abusing government power, all prove that there is no justice possible when they are in power. Once they get in power, as Pete DeFazio has, they have no qualms about abusing that power to retain tyrannical control.

That this is coming out is good. The same abuses occur constantly and are never heard about. That is the real shame in this story. Conservatives cannot get degrees on most college campuses because of the aggressive political actions of progressives. The denial of advanced degrees is followed by the rejection of hiring conservatives for professorships, and the refusal to permit them to acquire tenure in those rare occasions they get past the progressive gauntlet.

It is also the reason that many white Americans cannot get ahead. Preference is given to minorities and foreigners. It has passed being affirmative action and has become all out war against white males.
