The University of Washington's student senate rejects a memorial for UW alum, Gregory "Pappy" Boyington of Baa Baa Black Sheep fame.

Here are the meeting minutes. Truly unbelievable, including phrases such as "Jill Edwards didn't believe a member of the Marine Corps was an example of the sort of person UW wanted to produce" and "Ashley Miller commented that many monuments at UW already commemorate rich white men."

More on the issue here.

UPDATE:
Here is the original resolution.

Also, make sure you scroll to the bottom of the minutes so you can make sure and read the announcements. Otherwise you may miss the events that the leaders of the UW student body want to promote such as GBLTC drag show auditions, the Honors Croquet League, playing the "Privilidge Game", buying tickets for the Vagina Monologues and of course the ACLU meeting this Saturday.

It is frightening to note that too many of our brightest have been educated to become demigod social elitists. Oblivious of the moral values and sacrifices millions have made before them to allow such lofty opinions of themselves.

I was listening to a gentleman that was talking about his father. He said that after he graduated from college his 60+ year old father told him that he wanted to go to college. The son was surprised and said, "Dad, why would you want to do that? Your almost retired, with your golden years ahead of you, surely you have something better to do with the rest of your life!" To which his Father replied, "I want to go to college to find out what they do to you kids in there to screw you up much!"

Memorial Honors Refused by EwE-Dumb Stugents.

You weren't ecpecting anything different from chill'en educated in Seattle's "Berkeley Run" Pubic Skrools" was you?

Well of course the U-Dund rejected A Seattle Memorial to a local UW Medal of Honor Marine... It would be an Insult to Seattle's God Like Memorial of Lenin put up by Jane Fonda's Fremont Freeks.

Exactly how many Japanese tourists does this Popeye fascist have to kill before you people will condemn him for his crimes? I'm not saying we should have him arrested...but erect a monument in his honor? The man never killed any cops, declared a Jihad on anyone, nor wrote a single children's book to redeem himself. They wouldn't even allow him on campus at Evergreen. So what makes you think he deserves recognition at UW?

Thanks for sharing the links. I heard this on the radio (Kirby Wilbur on KVI) the other morning, but wanted to have links before posting on it.

I emailed a SF LTC friend who graduated from UW with the heads up last week. I'm sure that if this makes it around the Mil world, there will be some backlash. Sad thing to contemplate, though, isn't it?

Unbelievable ignorance and naivete about the realities of life and priorities. The University has failed its taxpayers.

As a former UW student I am just... amazed and apologize to everyone on behalf of my school.

Wow. It looks like the UofDub is trying to displace the UofO Ducks as the most socialistic, anti-american, hippy-hugging public institution in the Northwest. My advice to the social elite at both universities is: Go clean your bongs and leave the decision making to real Americans.
