‘Gay’ Activists Drive Socrates to Drink – Sinclair Community College’s Professor-led Walkout on LaBarbera

Friday, April 25th, 2014

SocratesThis is a neat piece by my good friend, Brian Fitzpatrick, pegging off the anti-intellectual, professor-led student “walkout” at my April 9, 2014 presentation at Sinclair Community College in Dayton, Ohio. The talk was organized by the Traditional Values Club, a wonderful group of people who have weathered considerable vitriol and hatred from the intolerant Left at SCC.

On the same topic of blind ideology opposing reason, readers should be aware that a writer for the liberal online publication Salon–SCC Professor Kate Geiselman–made up an outright lie about what I said at Sinclair in her celebratory yet inaccurate account of the walkout. In reacting to the walkout, I never said “Are you effing kidding me?” as she claims. Ironically, Geiselman teaches creative writing at SCC. Creative, indeed. I am demanding a retraction and apology from Salon.–Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH

‘Gay’ Activists Drive Socrates to Drink

By Brian Fitzpatrick

This essay first appeared on Barbwire.com April 25, 2014 [professor Rebecca Morean’s actual comments are in bold]

So, I’m sitting here with my old friend Socrates, chatting about our favorite subjects:  intellectual curiosity, civil discourse, and how to cook chicken (he prefers a spit over an olive wood fire), when a news story comes in over the e-transom:

“This Community College’s Form of Protest to Anti Gay Speaker Peter LaBarbera is Awesome!”  The story is on a website called instinctmagazine.com, and the page is littered with images of semi-nude men.

Socrates seems confused.  “Why protests this community college its own guest speaker?  Is not a college a place of learning? What does ‘gay’ mean, and why is it wrong to oppose ‘gay?’”  (We haven’t gotten past the headline yet, and Socrates is already spewing questions like an erupting volcano.  He doesn’t touch-type, so I’m doing my best to keep up.)

“Yes, a community college is a place of learning, but they didn’t want to hear what LaBarbera had to say, Socrates.”

“That is most strange for a place of learning.  Is it not better to hear out a speaker, even one with whom you disagree, and then counter his arguments with better arguments?”
