Liberal School Hosts ROTC Commissioning Ceremony

Attention Liberals:

Columbia University (New York) hosted the first ROTC commissioning ceremony since 1972, when ROTC was kicked off campus. Granted, it was the Air Force, but nevertheless welcome.

If you want the U.S. to intervene militarily in places like Darfur to stop genocide, you have a responsibility to support (or, at minimum, not to oppose) our military which actually accomplishes the mission you support. Otherwise, conservatives will charge you with hypocrisy.

Of course, here's the best quote from the article (unfortunately hidden behind a pay-to-read firewall):

Conservative students not in the ROTC charged the university with hypocrisy. "It's ridiculous that people who promote tolerance and diversity are the same people who try to keep out the alternative lifestyle - that is, ROTC - from our school," an active member of the College Republicans, Peter Law, said. Well, Mr. Law, if you really want to Support President Bush, have you considered volunteering for military service yourself?

Tell in him to volunteer for military service is like telling him "So you're against crime, huh? Then why don't you become a cop, huh? Huh? And are you against fire? Then why don't you become a firefighter too, you hypocrite!"

That "enlist if you're pro-war" bull is very prevalent in this blog. In fact, seeing as your tagline follows that lead, it is the very premise of why you're writing. It's the kind of obnoxious behaviour that many have come to expect from the left.

anonymous-

Given our military's ongoing recruiting 'challenges,' those eligible to serve who support the war do, indeed, have an obligation at least to consider volunteering for military service.

That's the whole point of this blog.

I never thought that encouraging healthy heterosexual young men to consider military service would be labeled "bull" by pro-war conservatives.

What has America come to?

anon's police and fireman metaphor is invalid.

an acccurate metaphor would be: a governor saying we need more police/firemen because a city across the state is about to undergo a violent crime wave caused by the mafia and arsonists when he knows that to be false. So, with the support of the governor's cheerleaders who take to the streets saying "fight the mafia and arsonists" we send half of our police/firemen to the other city. Then we find ourselves woefully short to fight the crime/fires in our city (which quickly turns our city into a crime-ridden cesspool) and when the governor asks for people to "enlist" in the police/fire department they say they don't have to join the police in order to support them.

Yeah, and starting wars for no good reason, then being too chickenshit to volunteer, is the kind of obnoxious behavior we've come to expect from the right.

Hmmmm, given the choice, I'll take the obnoxious behavior of the left every time.
