What's good for the goose is good for the gander

Liberals often talk a lot about "academic freedom" and what they deem to be "free speech." They very much value these rights which they say are sacrosanct, but in the past they have done everything they can to deny them to others (branding those who hold ideologies they find abhorrent as the perveyors of "hate speech," for example), while attempting to preserve those rights for themselves. They can talk all they want, advancing Marxism and disparaging Christianity and free societies as they go, but speech which promotes ideologies the Left doesn't like, why that is "hate speech" in the Liberal lexicon.

If I publically stated on this blog that the Anti-defamation League (ADL) was a tool of Satan, whose goals were to water-down and subvert Christianity with ideas based on modern liberal Jewish thought, and try and tell Catholics and other Christians who they should or should not hold in high esteem according to the dictates of their faith (ahem...Pius XII), why I'd be labeled by just about everyone on the Left and not a few of the pro-Israel element on the Right as an anti-Semite and a Jew-hater. (Funny how nobody labels people at the ADL and others who are Hell-bent on trying to politically correct Christians "Christ-haters" or "Christian bashers," isn't it?)

However, if you are Professor Ward Churchill at the University of Colorado, you can call victims of the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center, whether they are Christians, Jews, Hindus, Muslims, or people of no faith at all, "little Eichmanns," likening them to the master planner of the Nazi Holocaust! The reason, says Professor Churchill, is because they were a part of the "mighty engine of profit," just like the Nazis. Such a statement is filled with hate, and is rediculous on its face, but in the world of the Left, it is protected because of "academic freedom."

Well, what is good for the goose is good for the gander, and in the case of Dr. Churchill, the University of Colorado is looking for a way around his tenure so that the Trustees might dismiss him. If a conservative can be robbed of tenure and work because they refuse to accept Marx, it is about tim a liberal is robbed of tenure for comparing conservatives to Nazis. Let the left finally have a dose of their own medicine.
