Columbia University students heckled a war hero during a town-hall meeting on whether ROTC should be allowed back on campus.
“Racist!” some students yelled at Anthony Maschek, a Columbia freshman and former Army staff sergeant awarded the Purple Heart after being shot 11 times in a firefight in northern Iraq in February 2008. Others hissed and booed the veteran.
Maschek, 28, had bravely stepped up to the mike Tuesday at the meeting to issue an impassioned challenge to fellow students on their perceptions of the military.
Via Instapundit. Sgt. Maschek had spent two years recovering from the injuries sustained in defending spoiled children making mock of uniforms that guarded them as they slept; but it’s really their teachers that are to blame for this. Their teachers who are ever-so-dependent on federal research money to maintain their lifestyles, and whose universities are currently largely in violation of the Solomon Amendment regarding ROTC recruitment, and I know that at least one House staffer reads this blog.
