Condoleezza Rice at Boston College? I quit
By Steve Almond | May 12, 2006
An open letter to William P. Leahy, SJ, president of Boston College.
I am writing to resign my post as an adjunct professor of English at Boston College.
I am doing so -- after five years at BC, and with tremendous regret -- as a direct result of your decision to invite Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice to be the commencement speaker at this year's graduation.
[THE TRUTH ... I WILL NOT WORK IN AN ENVIORMENT THAT SUPPORTS OR EXTENDS THE HAND OF FREE SPEECH TO THOSE WHO OPPOSE MY LEFT LEANING IDEOLOGY.]
Many members of the faculty and student body already have voiced their objection to the invitation, arguing that Rice's actions as secretary of state are inconsistent with the broader humanistic values of the university and the Catholic and Jesuit traditions from which those values derive.
[THE TRUTH ... THOSE THAT HAVE BEEN BRAIN WASHED BY MYSELF AND OTHER LEFTIST WILL OPPOSE THE THOUGHT OF SOMEONE WHO DOES NOT SUBSCRIBE TO SOCIALISM.]
But I am not writing this letter simply because of an objection to the war against Iraq. My concern is more fundamental. Simply put, Rice is a liar.
She has lied to the American people knowingly, repeatedly, often extravagantly over the past five years, in an effort to justify a pathologically misguided foreign policy.
[THE TRUTH ... I DO NOT SUPPORT THE FACT THE UNITED STATES SHOULD OR IS A SUPER POWER. ALL WHO WOULD TRY TO BRING DEMOCRACY TO THE WORLD ARE EVIL AND LIARS.]
The public record of her deceits is extensive. During the ramp-up to the Iraq war, she made 29 false or misleading public statements concerning Iraq's weapons of mass destruction and links to Al Qaeda, according to a congressional investigation by the House Committee on Government Reform.
[THE TRUTH .... BECAUSE THE MSM AND OTHER COCONSPIRITORS DID NOT FIND A SMOKING GUN , DIDNT LOOK FOR ONE EITHER. THE INTEL PRESENTED BEFORE THE WAR MUST BE AND IS FALSE. THE WHOLE WORLD IS WRONG AND I AM RIGHT.]
To cite one example:
In an effort to build the case for war, then-National Security Adviser Rice repeatedly asserted that Iraq was pursuing a nuclear weapon, and specifically seeking uranium in Africa.
[THE TRUTH .... WE SENT A PARTICIAN INSPECTOR TO NIGERIA AND BETWEEN DINNERS AND OTHER DIVERSIONS HE DID NOT SEEK ANY INFORMATION ON YELLOW CAKE. NO ONE RAN UP TO HIM AND PRESENTED EVIDANCE OF IRAQ SEEKING YELLOW CAKE. HE DID NOT BOTHER TO CONFIRM A SALE THAT WAS KNOWN AND PROVEN , THEREFORE THE YELLOW CAKE IS A LIE AND THE BRITISH ARE DUPES FOR TELING US OF THIS PURCHASE.]
In July of 2003, after these claims were disproved, Rice said: ''Now if there were doubts about the underlying intelligence . . . those doubts were not communicated to the president, the vice president, or to me."
Rice's own deputy, Stephen Hadley, later admitted that the CIA had sent her a memo eight months earlier warning against the use of this claim.
[THE TRUTH ... WITH OUR OWN LEFTIST IN THE CIA AND OTHER PARTS OF THE STATE DEPARTMENT, WE WARNED/LIED ABOUT ANY THREAT OR POSSIBLE FUTURE THREAT AND WERE IGNORED. HOWEVER THANKS TO OUR BROTHERS IN THE LEFTIST MEDIA WE TWISTED THE TRUTH ON FACTS AND CLAIM INTELL WAS WRONG. WE WERE IGNORED AND THIS WE DO NOT TOLERATE.]
In the three years since the war began, Rice has continued to misrepresent or simply ignore the truth about our deadly adventure in Iraq.
Like the president whom she serves so faithfully, she refuses to recognize her errors or the tragic consequences of those errors to the young soldiers and civilians dying in Iraq. She is a diplomat whose central allegiance is not to the democratic cause of this nation, but absolute power.
[THE TRUTH .... SINCE SOLDIERS DIE IN WAR , AND THERE ARE CIVILAIN CASULTIES NOT OF AMERICAN CITIZENSHIP WE CLAIM THAT THE CURRENT ADMINISTRATION IS ABUSEING ITS POWER. THE ADGENDA OF THE CURRENT ADMINISTRATION IS NOT THE ADGENDA WE WANT AND THEREFORE IS ALL ABUSE AND LIES.]
This is the woman to whom you will be bestowing an honorary degree, along with the privilege of addressing the graduating class of 2006.
It is this last notion I find most reprehensible: that Boston College would entrust to Rice the role of moral exemplar.
[THE TRUTH ... I FEEL THAT THERE ARE MORE DESERVING PEOPLE WHO HAVE THE SAME POLITICAL ADGENDA AS MYSELF. THESE ARE THE ONES WHO DESERVE AN FALSE DEGREE THAT WE CAN PROP UP AND BE PROUD OF. IF WE SUPPORT THOSE ON THE LEFT WITH AKOLADES THEN ONLY OUR IDEAOLOGY WILL BE TAUGHT.]
To be clear: I am not questioning her intellectual gifts or academic accomplishments. Nor her potentially inspiring role as a powerful woman of color.
[THE TRUTH .... I CANNOT QUESTION HER INTELLIGENCE AS SHE IS SMARTER THAN I.]
But these are not the factors by which a commencement speaker should be judged. It is the content of one's character that matters here -- the reverence for truth and knowledge that Boston College purports to champion.
[THE TRUTH .... THE FACTORS IN WHICH WE SHOULD JUDGE A PERSON ARE AS FOLLOWS. DO THEY SEEK THE SAME GOAL AS US. ARE THEY ON OUR SIDE. ARE THEY ANTI MILITARY AS THIS IS A WASTE OF OUR TIME. DO THEY AGREE THAT DIPLOMACY AND KOWTOWING TO THE WORLD ORDER IS BETTER THEN HAVEING A NATIONAL SOVERIGNTRY. THIS IS WHAT WE NEED TO LOOK FOR AND SUPPORT.]
Rice does not personify these values; she repudiates them. Whatever inspiring rhetoric she might present to the graduating class, her actions as a citizen and politician tell a different story.
Honestly, Father Leahy, what lessons do you expect her to impart to impressionable seniors?
That hard work in the corporate sector might gain them a spot on the board of Chevron? That they, too, might someday have an oil tanker named after them? That it is acceptable to lie to the American people for political gain?
[THE TRUTH .... WE CANNOT SUPPORT SOMEONE WHO DEMONSTRATES ALL WE OPPOSE AS LEFTISTS. IF STUDENTS START TO REALIZE THAT THEY ARE JUDGED BY THEIR DEEDS AND HAVE SELF IMPORTANCE THEN THEIR DEPENDANCY ON THE STATE WILL DISSOLVE. WE MUST HAVE A DEPENDANT CITIZENRY TO ENSURE A POWER BASE FOR THE LEFT TO RULE OVER. THE IDEA OF EVERYONE IS THE SAME AND NOONE HAS ANY ABILITY BETTER THEN ANOTHER MUST CONTINUE TO BE TAUGHT SO THAT WE CAN MAINTAIN CONTROL OVER THE POPULANCE THROUGH SOCIAL PROGRAMS THAT BLEED THE RICH DRY, WHILE WE REDISTRIBUTE THEIR MONIES INTO OUR POCKETS.]
Given the widespread objection to inviting Rice, I would like to think you will rescind the offer. But that is clearly not going to happen.
Like the administration in Washington, you appear too proud to admit to your mistake. Instead, you will mouth a bunch of platitudes, all of which boil down to: You don't want to lose face.
In this sense, you leave me no choice.
I cannot, in good conscience, exhort my students to pursue truth and knowledge, then collect a paycheck from an institution that displays such flagrant disregard for both.
[THE TRUTH .... FATHER YOU LEAVE ME NO CHOICE BUT TO MAKE A PUBLIC SPECTACLE OUT OF THIS. DO MY BEST TO EMBARISH YOU AND THE COLLAGE. I MUST SHOW THAT BOSTON COLLAGE IS FAILING TO PURSUE A LEFT LEANING DOCTRINE. I WILL BE LEFT WITH NO OTHER ALTERNATIVE BUT TO TRY AND BLACKMAIL YOU INTO STAYING TRUE TO THE SOCIALIST IDEAOLOGY.]
I would like to apologize to my students and prospective students. I would also urge them to investigate the words and actions of Rice, and to exercise their own First Amendment rights at her speech.
[THE TRUTH ... FOR ALL THOSE WE HAVE BRAINWASHED AND NOW ARE FEELING ABADONED DO NOT LOOSE FAITH IN THE LEFTIST DREAM.WE CAN STILL WIN THE DAY BY ABUSEING THE BILL OF RIGHTS, TWISTING THEM TO OUR GOALS AND PUNISHING ALL WHO OPPOSE OUR GOALS. HEAR ME NOW LEFTIST BROTHERS AND SISTERS, WE CAN STILL STIFFLE THE VOICE OF TRUTH AND REPLACE IT WITRH OUR SPIN AND DIATRIBE OF LIES.]
A very interesting letter of resignation from the old prof don't you think?
