I’m going to beat this anti-gun horse to death, grind it into IKEA meatballs, and them feed it to them.
Everytown is quoting University of Houston, English Department, Associate Professor Maria C. Gonzalez. A professor of English. I wondered what type of “critical intellectual work” she felt allowing CCW on campus would discourage. I showed this quote to my wife, who majored in English Education as an undergrad, and she asked the same question.
So I decided to do some digging. Turns out, she has quite a few negative ratings about how she conducts her class.
Well that explains it. Professor Gonzalez sees her role in the classroom as less about teaching students mastery of the written English language, and more about being a Social Justice activist. Even her good reviews make it clear that
Propagandist Professor Gonzalez is politically biased; she’s just an easy grader if you are willing to parrot her ideas back at her.
My guess here is that
Propagandist Professor Gonzalez is a dyed-in-the-wool Progressive activist. It’s not idea of a gun in her classroom that terrifies her. It’s the idea of an independently minded, and potentially *gasp* conservative, student in her classroom that terrifies her. It’s the idea that one of the impressionable young minds in her class might not be so easily malleable to her world view. This is not the opinion of a professional educator who earnestly wants her students to think critically and evaluate new concepts. This is the opinion of a Progressive evangelist who only wants to preach to the choir.
This type of professor is a stain on academia. Her opinion on this issue is as worthless as the education she hoists upon her students.
