Despicable: Convicted cop killer to give college commencement speech

I sometimes wonder, is there no low to which progressive socialists will stoop? Furthermore, when you hear the remarks of President Obama and Attorney General Holder relating to our local law enforcement officers you have to wonder if they hold any respect for those who walk the “thin blue line?” But this latest episode at a Vermont college hits a new low.

A Vermont college has selected convicted cop killer Mumia Abu-Jamal as commencement speaker.

It’s a “despicable” decision that should be reversed, his victim’s widow told Fox News. “Maureen Faulkner, whose husband Daniel was gunned down by Abu-Jamal in 1981, was shocked to learn of the selection by undergraduate students at tiny Goddard College in Plainfield. Abu-Jamal, who will not attend the event and whose speech will be pre-recorded, received a bachelor of arts degree from the 245-student liberal arts college in 1996 through a correspondence program. “It’s not appropriate,” Faulkner said. “His freedom was taken away when he murdered a police officer in the line of duty. It seems like our justice system allows murderers to continue to have a voice over the public airwaves and at college commencement. It’s despicable.”

What message does this send, that we live in a country where the former Secretary of State and National Security Advisor, Condoleeza Rice, is protested against and forced to cancel an invitation to speak at the commencement of Rutgers University? This is the same Rutgers who welcomed “Snookie” as a commencement speaker. What are our principles and values when a powerful speaker on women’s rights in opposition to Islamo-facscist totalitarianism such as Ayaan Hirsi Ali has her invitation to speak at Brandeis revoked? How did we become so upside down in America, and especially on our college and university campuses?

Just as a refresher, “Abu-Jamal, born Wesley Cook, was sentenced to death following a high-profile trial in Philadelphia. His sentence was later reduced to life in prison without parole for killing Faulkner, a 25-year-old patrolman who scuffled with Abu-Jamal’s brother during an early morning traffic stop. Abu-Jamal, a member of the Black Panther Party, was wounded by a round from Faulkner’s gun and a .38-caliber revolver registered to Abu-Jamal was found at the scene with five spent shell casings, according to trial testimony.”

So what does this say to our law enforcement officers? The statistics are disturbing, when you take into account the number of assaults and deaths of our law enforcement officers — no White House delegation to their funerals of course. Fox reports, “this is the third time Abu-Jamal, 60, has given commencement speeches at colleges, including at Evergreen State College in Washington and Antioch College in Ohio. Both of those events prompted widespread protests on behalf of law enforcement officers and Faulkner’s relatives.”

“It’s a travesty,” Faulkner told FoxNews.com in April. “You’re going to teach children about a man who murdered a police officer? That’s not a good lesson to be teaching children. He was a radical, a militant. My question is: Are our tax dollars paying for this?”

Fox reports, “in a statement, Goddard College Interim President Bob Kenny said the college holds 20 commencement ceremonies annually to provide personalized graduation ceremonies in each degree program. “As a reflection of Goddard’s individualized and transformational educational model, our commencements are intimate affairs where each student serves as her or his own valedictorian, and each class chooses its own speaker,” Kenny said, “Choosing Mumia as their commencement speaker, to me, shows how this newest group of Goddard graduates expresses their freedom to engage and think radically and critically in a world that often sets up barriers to do just that.”

That blather indicates the adults are not in charge at Goddard College and this is the problem — adults acquiescing to students. Therein lies the societal issue, because these young people will graduate and expect that’s the way the world works. They can be self-centered and demand special treatment for their own individual whims. A small liberal arts college has 20 different commencement ceremonies where each student serves as their own valedictorian? This is the ol’ mantra of every kid gets a trophy. It would be similar to every troop receiving the Medal of Honor who serves in the combat zone — heck, I best be careful because Obama may just whip out his pen to make that so!

According to Fox, “the head of the Vermont State Police also condemned the school’s actions, saying the college’s students and leaders are showing “blatant indifference” toward law enforcement. “The scheduled commemoration of convicted cop killer, Mumia Abu-Jamal, demonstrates an appalling disregard for law enforcement officers, and their families, who have lost their lives in the line of duty,” Col. Tom L’Esperance said in a statement. “Our thoughts go out to Officer Daniel Faulkner’s wife and family, who continue to mourn the 1981 death of the 25-year-old Philadelphia police officer. Despite this blatant indifference shown by the students and leaders at Goddard College, law enforcement officers across the country, and in Vermont, continue to serve and protect their communities — everyday — at great risk to themselves. All the while, their loved ones are wishing them safely home.”

I’m starting to wonder if progressive socialists truly wish our law enforcement officers to return safely home each day. The evidence speaks volumes as to their disdain for our peace officers, who are herded to politically support these charlatans by way of the unionized groups such as the Police Benevolent Association (PBA). It appears the benevolence of progressive socialists is extended to cop killers not to our police officers. I wonder if there will ever be a time when one of these liberal progressive colleges would have a law enforcement officer deliver a commencement address?

I read the article. My parents had no problem telling me when I was being a jerk. Let’s face it, kids are a pretty selfish little bunch, and in my case, when I decided to be difficult, or I didn’t want to get their point, my parents also had no problem getting quite stern and had ways to persuade me about the correct point of view. It’s that lack of correcting bad behavior and letting the child continue immaturity way beyond the boundaries, that have mass idiocy as evidenced by students at Goddard, and in general in the state of… Read more »

As Booker T. Washington stated, “There is another class of coloured people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs — partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs.”

The problem is that a large minority of people in this country have no standards or morals.

mzungu
Guest

Where should they get standards and morals? Right now their standards are literally coming out of their asses, which is what they worship. Now if one should say “well I think we should have Judeo-Christian standards for our laws” then a whole cadre of voices rises up in protest because they want Islam to be included. And Atheists , which are cool with Islam, want the Christian voices snuffed out.

So we are left with that condition at this moment.
Each day our nation and people groups and individuals need to choose this day whom they will serve- God or Man

Jasmin Chambers
Guest

If Atheists are cool with Islam, they are going to find if it ever comes down to it, that their little neutral card is not part of the other groups deck. And, unlike the Christianity they despise so much, I don’t believe tolerance is a big part of the Islamic ideology. You’re either in, or you’re out.

Please see my post to Jason Jawann Moore just below. I understand rights. But, children used to be raised with citizenship, courtesy, compassion, empathy, sensibility, maturity, and some decency instilled in them, so that the choices they made later were done so based on sound judgment, and not just doing things to get a rise out of folks just for the sake of getting a rise out of folks, the way immature kids do their parents, but today they then hide behind “rights”. This immaturity has reached the point of becoming a dangerous thing. Opportunists take advantage of the feeble… Read more »

Well thank you for the young man compliment. That being said in this country we have a right to choose and speak our minds. Again I say does not make it morally right. If we start telling people we do not agree with that they cannot think this way or do this then we are no better than them. We can however make our objections known and maybe even suggest alternatives. Liberty it is in deed.

Jason Jawann Moore

Liberty is the power to do as one likes.[1] In philosophy, the idea of liberty involves free will as contrasted with determinism.[2] In politics, liberty is freedom from government coercion.[3] In theology, liberty is freedom from the bondage of sin.[4]

We know all this! But, we can still be outraged at how amoral this society is getting on the backs of the good, moral people who came before them.

Stupid effin liberals. Liberals aren’t American, they are anti American. Liberals suck. Nothing liberal is good. Liberals serve only to make themselves seem smarter and more important than they actually are. Let dumbass liberals learn from convicts…liberals aren’t smart enough to comprehend anyone but a convict as stupid as they are themselves. Do you really think they have the mental capacity to even begin to understand what someone like Condi Rice might say to them?

years ago I represented the Sear Roebuck Co. as a store Mgr. and dealt with this small town college with wealthy students from urban America, mostly NYC. They were always a little off center in their history but a good education could be had if you paid attention. In the sixties with the hippie Communes being the next big thing Plainfield started to change with coffee shops etc. Goddard education changed radically with it and has yet to recover and is going down the same road to oblivion as the Bennington College 100 miles South.

No one bats an eye when Christians kill in God’s name, because it is not kosher to speak about that..since Christianity is a religion of peace…like all religions. If you are agnostic..I’m assuming you read and compared the three major religious books out there, hence your agnosticism.

You must have failed history. The Crusades? the Inquisition, the spread of Christianity by force around the world since the growth of it..and also numerous bible passages, here’s one:

They entered into a covenant to seek the Lord, the God of their fathers, with all their heart and soul; and everyone who would not seek the Lord, the God of Israel, was to be put to death, whether small or great, whether man or woman. (2 Chronicles 15:12-13

According to Matthew 5:17-18, we clearly see that Jesus honored the Old Testament, and forced Christians to follow the unmodified laws of it that have not been replaced by newer ones in the New Testament. The Old Testament orders the immediate killing of apostates/renegades. The New Testament orders the death of the apostates/renegades. And according to Matthew 5:17-18 above, apostates/renegades in Christianity must be put to death simultaneously.

Christians are obligated to follow the Old Testament.

You’re right. He does want us to love each other and, By the same token, judge less. It would be silly to think that the comments on here are all made by “Christians.” In my opinion, most people have no idea what it means to be a Christ follower in the real sense of the word. Even fewer people think about what we should be doing as followers of Jesus. That path is narrow and difficult to travel — we often fall off into the ditch on one side or the other.

The guy was found guilty and put into prison. That is the reality of the here and now. Whether God will forgive him is between him and God. What is between him and society are prison walls because he was convicted of killing someone. What message the college wants to present to students and the public by having him as a speaker is unclear, but appears to be a poor choice. With so many choices that could have been made, it shows how upside down our society has become as Allen West stated.

I have seen nothing but arrogant vituperation surrounding this entire issue. A) This is none of your business, if you are not personally involved with Goddard. B) There is one judge, and he who judges his brother judges the law. How terrible it would be if all your crimes against God were exposed publicly so you could be ridiculed. Read Luke 12:1-2 (ISV) and get serious. C) He hasn’t even delivered the speech. “Glorifying violence” and “allowing a man who did something wrong to speak as alumni” are WORLDS APART. You might recognize these things if you’d lower your nose… Read more »

Some of the illiterate soundbytes from the comments field of this delightful, “informed” website: “Obama’s NWO” — (a private collegiate institution sovereignly electing to choose a relevant speaker from their alumni has NOTHING to do with Obama, NWO or globalism) “glorify a murderer” — (no one is glorifying anything, and his speech hasn’t even been made) “Democrats are disgusting” — (democrats are people, made in the image of God) “Vermont has a black muslim college?” — (this is so far afield from relevance as to be ludicrous) “Murdering animal” — (he who hates his brother in his heart is a… Read more »

This from a guy who wrote: “I’m 23 and I have an 18 year old stepdaughter, 17 year old stepson, 13 year old stepdaughter, 8 year old adopted son, 7 year old adopted daughter, 1.5 year old son, and 5 day old daughter. I am a devout Christian, and this article cannot be the platform from which you judge other people. You know what doesn’t sound like devout Christianity? Using skewed facts to attack someone’s salvation.” Judge others much, Adam? What a hypocrite!

So cops killing 1.4 people a day and someone’s dog every 98 seconds is ok, but if someone kills a cop they are worthy of your statist hatred? cops are the most murderous and best funded criminal gang who have been perpetrating a civil war against We The People for at least 40 years, asserting the authority of a dictator telling free men and women what choices they may or may not make regarding the plants and substances they put in their bodies. You are not a conservative or a liberal you are a statist and a fascist, and you… Read more »

Just more liberals doing what they do best,,,,i.e. take the God out of Goddard,,,and everything they touch. Thomas Jefferson warned: “The two enemies of the people are criminals and government. So let us tie the second down with the chains of the Constitution so that the second will not become the legal version of the first” Jefferson’s warnings have come to pass, in the form of a newly minted Liberal Progressive circle of life where the criminals first take over the educational systems, then take over the government who sponsors and educates the criminals to become our new teachers.

Earl Lee, I don’t donate! Not involved? The articles I read that include references to him are about matters in which he is directly or indirectly involved. Do you actually believe Obama has been great as the President? If so, why?

Cops need to stand up for the people instead of doing the government’s dirty work. Stop the 4th amendment violations by stopping people without probable cause at DWI checkpoints. Stop issuing tickets for victimless crimes like not wearing a seatbelt. Stop smashing down doors while waging the worthless and unconstitutional drug wars. If they don’t do THESE things, don’t expect any support form the libertarian right against idiots like THIS guy!

What a disgusting bunch of liberal retards. I hope someone has the guts to disrupt this black from talking.

The teachers at that school deserve to have their teeth kicked in.
