    A College Progrom

    Tonight I read a report so disturbing that I think it opens a new page in our run up toward a theocratic fascist-like regime. Check it out:

    SRJC uproar over Republican protest

    Several instructors targeted by student's posting of red stars, state code on teaching of communism

    Santa Rosa Junior College's oak-studded campus is aflame with controversy triggered by the anonymous posting of red stars and a reference to communist indoctrination on 10 faculty office doors.

    Instructors quickly saw the action as a threat to academic freedom, but the student who claimed credit for the protest said it was about left-leaning bias in the lecture hall.

    The stars, which unnerved some instructors, were accompanied by a copy of a state Education Code section prohibiting the teaching of communism with the "intent to indoctrinate" students.

    "It makes me a little anxious," philosophy instructor Michael Aparicio said.

    Ed Buckley, the college's vice president of academic affairs, weighed in with a defense of academic freedom, saying in an e-mail to SRJC faculty that it includes teaching "difficult and controversial material."

    But political science major Molly McPherson of Rohnert Park said she had only intended to start a discussion about the personal politics of SRJC humanities instructors by posting the stars. (...)

    As David Neiwert has carefully explained, America is slowly, but steadily creeping towards theocratic fascism.

    On Kristallnacht (and before that awful event), Nazi Germans used to post Stars of David on the doors of Jews and Jewish-owned businesses.

    Or like in the picture below, they used to single out Jews in schools and humiliate them publicly:

    Why am I not surprised those college Republican are using the very same intimidation techniques of the Nazis? Second nature?
