University of Washington: "Pappy" Boyington of Baa Baa Black Sheep Fame Not Fit For Memorial

Unbelievable. From the minutes of the student senate:

"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."

Andrew's Dad suggests scrolling down to the end of the minutes, to learn that the UW student senate plans to promote events like a GBLTC drag show and of course the Vagina Monologues.

More at WND, which in turn links blogger Pardosis. Who, in turn, comments:

[H]ave our Washington youth revised history so much as this? To compare Boyington – or for that matter any of our WW2 vets – to murderers? What are these kids being taught today? They don't deserve those 20 months Pappy spent being tortured and beaten in a Japanese prison camp ... they don't deserve any of what our grandfathers and grandmothers sacrificed to free Europe and the Pacific.

Hamas are moral heroes, and Pappy Boyington is a murderer.

Such is the current state of the world.
