In an extremely bizarre–and borderline treasonous–lesson, a professor was teaching his students that Osama bin Laden was a “freedom fighter” against the “neocolonial power” that is the United States.
A political science professor at California Polytechnic State University, Emmit Evans, was requiring his students to read a book he wrote titled, “The Other World.” In it, he conveys the ideology that Osama was in fact a hero for retaliating against the oppressive United States with the 9/11 attacks.
He also praises Osama for eventually martyring himself in the name of Allah.
And excerpt from the book reads:
“The Al Qaeda movement of Osama bin Laden is one example of an attempt to free a country (in this case, Saudi Arabia) from a corrupt and repressive regime propped up by a neocolonial power (in this case, the United States).”
Of course, as should be expected in America, students as well as everyday citizens are thrown back by the man’s curriculum. A student in Evans’ class, Aaron Bandler explains, “It totally blew my mind that a professor would essentially call Al Qaeda a bunch of freedom fighters in required reading for class.”
Bandler went on to relay a few more of the Liberal professor’s ideals that he was trying to infect the minds of his students with. He said Evans has encouraged other ludicrous ideas such as, “encouraging us to be activists… the whole last part of the course was about how to cause ‘positive change’… but his examples of positive change were all stuff like Occupy Wall Street, the Arab Spring, and raising the minimum wage.”
Bandler finishes by saying, “He would say things like, ‘I know you guys can go out there and make things more sustainable.’”
Sustainable? By disrupting the American people and insulting the pride we have for our country?
Evans offered a rebuttal when confronted by reporters by saying, “With respect to my writings, they are empirical, not normative.” If that is the case, then why are you teaching it?
Being the fact that there is a need to teach certain aspects of interpretation does not give anyone the right to portray the monstrous acts of one human as being a form of resistance against an oppressive government.
There is no, “through the looking glass” moral of the story here—Osama bin Laden was singlehandedly responsible for the deaths of countless Americans. Stories such as the one Evans created just aren’t acceptable and, in fact, are insulting.
Maybe in an effort to gain a little more “sustainability” we should send Evans over to the front lines in Afghanistan to give him a little perspective on his “freedom fighters.”
