One of the several photos of Professor Linda Prokopy on the Internet shows her holding a Koala. I can’t bring myself to be too hard on a woman I’ve seen holding the delightful little marsupial. But she is a liberal (you can tell by looking) and a feminist, so there’s no sense in ignoring her ridiculous efforts to trash the right of the white race to exist.
The liberal Linda (Jewish by any chance?) was disgusted by Purdue University President Mitch Daniels (former Republican governor of Indiana) earlier this week.
What caused her panties to twist into a wad?
Mitch Daniels’ response to so-called white supremacy posters put up on campus by American Vanguard was not strong enough for her.
Called out for ‘lukewarm’ response to white supremacist fliers on campus, Mitch Daniels clarifies his stance
A day after Purdue University faculty and students called out Mitch Daniels and promised to protest outside his Hovde Hall office for his “lame, lukewarm” response to a white nationalist group’s fliers cropping up on campus, the school’s president sent a letter Thursday to clarify his thoughts.
“My condemnation of the apparent motives behind the poster at issue wasn’t sufficiently strident for some, and that’s fair enough,” Daniels wrote in a letter sent Thursday morning to Purdue faculty, staff and students.
Several dozen fliers touting American Vanguard, a white nationalist group listed on the Southern Poverty Law Center’s Hatewatch list, were found on Purdue kiosks and around Stanley Coulter Hall on Wednesday morning. Members of the University Senate’s equity and diversity committee pressed Daniels to condemn the fliers and those who put who them up.
This was Daniels’ initial statement, released Wednesday afternoon:
“Reading the dozen or so words on the posters in question, it’s not at all clear what they mean. But if one looks behind them, as I did, to the organization’s website, there are views expressed there that are obviously inconsistent with the values and principles we believe in here at Purdue. This is a transparent effort to bait people into overreacting, thereby giving a minuscule fringe group attention it does not deserve, and that we decline to do.”
On Wednesday night, about 150 faculty and students gathered at the West Lafayette Public Library to plan ways to counter the white supremacist messages of the fliers, even as American Vanguard promised more to come as it recruited supporters at Purdue and other campuses. Much of the night was devoted to blasting Daniels for not being strong enough in his response. The group promised a rally outside Daniels’ offices at noon Monday.
Talk about miniscule groups, eh Mitch? Well, 150 faculty and students at Purdue is about as miniscule as you can get. Yet you caved to these frightened cucks. Grow some big ones, boy, and start kicking ass like a real man.
That brought on Daniels’ follow-up. Here’s the rest of his statement, sent to Purdue email accounts around 10 a.m. Thursday:
“Each person can choose the language he or she thinks best meets an occasion like this. But Purdue University’s opposition to racism in all its forms couldn’t be more clear, both from yesterday’s statement and a host of others that preceded it. No action by a self-promoting fringe group can do anything to change that; in fact, it only furnishes another opportunity to underscore our commitment to equal access and opportunity, inclusion and respect for all people.”
Linda Prokopy, chairwoman of the University Senate’s equity and diversity committee, on Wednesday had said Daniels’ initial response was “not enough.” Prokopy said Thursday that Daniels made a stronger statement.
“President Daniels has satisfied my concerns,” Prokopy said. “I am delighted that he publicly underscored Purdue’s commitment to being an inclusive and respectful community. I am also very pleased that he listened to the concerned faculty, staff and students and responded to us.”
