Turns Out The Problem Wasn't Calling Sandra Fluke a Slut At All, But Merely With Disagreeing With Her

A professor at Rochester knocked Limbaugh's choice of words, but then made this observation:

[W]hile Ms. Fluke herself deserves the same basic respect we owe to any human being, her position — which is what’s at issue here — deserves none whatseover. It deserves only to be ridiculed, mocked and jeered. To treat it with respect would be a travesty. I expect there are respectable arguments for subsidizing contraception (though I am skeptical that there are arguments sufficiently respectable to win me over), but Ms. Fluke made no such argument. All she said, in effect, was that she and others want contraception and they don’t want to pay for it.

Note that the attacks on Limbaugh were due, supposedly, to his "misogynistic" language.

So this professor rap his language -- but goes on to say her position is ludicrous and worthy in itself of mockery.

So, no problem, right?

Wrong, of course.

Turns out that disagreeing with her was the problem all along.

Protesting students entered Landsburg’s room at the beginning of his mid-afternoon class.

“They formed a line between him and the class. And he continued to lecture,” said UR spokeswoman Sharon Dickman, who noted a couple of University Security officers were on the scene but didn’t need to take any action.

After about 15 minutes, the protesters left but returned about 45 minutes later for the end of the class, which Landsburg dismissed about five minutes early.

The president of Rochester did not tell the students to stop disrupting class. Rather, he attacked the professor:

UR President Joel Seligman sharply criticized the professor, Steven Landsburg. Seligman’s statement, which was included in a Wednesday email of college news sent to faculty and staff, said that he is “outraged that any professor would demean a student in this fashion.

Am I to understand that attacking the position -- the position, not the person -- of a student is "demeaning" to the point of "outrage"?

Apparently so, apparently so.

Although the professor, Landsburg, has tenure, Instapundit notes that all non-tenured professors are now put on notice: Endorse and propagate Fluke's childish belief system or face consequences.

Compare this typical leftwing crap, and all the national coverage of it, with this genuine example of hatred (apparently inspired by a teacher's hatred) and the absolutely zero coverage of it.
