Can I get away with a sirenless 'Developing.......'
A teacher at Ft. Lewis college in Durango, Colorado kicked a student in the shins for wearing a College Republican t-shirt.......Developing......
UPDATE: Apparently, there are a lot of witnesses to the professor kicking the guy and saying 'I should kick you harder and higher'. Should be in the news soon, I think.

The school newspaper where I work polled the faculty. Any guesses on the results? 88% favored Kerry.
Well....I can think of a worse place top be kicked.
Moral of the story: if you're going to wear a College Republican T-shirt to your Economics class, which happens to be taught by a Marxist, you should wear shin guards.
Note: I have no idea what class said Prof. was teaching. But still, it's a good lesson.
Where did you get that news from? Just curious.
Also, I highly recommend watching Brainwashing 101 - a documentary on political correctness by Evan Maloney - or trailer thereof, I'm not sure, it's avalable on the Web at brain-terminal.com. A must see.
I heard it from a guy in that CR group. They're getting the story out right now. I've already contacted Evan.
Sounds like an anonymous source. Doesn't that violate the standards of this blog?
Ivan, I saw the 40-minute preview of Brainswashing 101 at that conservative film festival here in Dallas. Pretty good. Hope to heck UT Austin doesn't end up in the finished product.
I'm giving you a Drudge-like heads up. It will probably be in the press, names and all, soon.
Offensive, sure, but is "Liberal Colorado Professor Is Also A Dick" really headline material?
So, does that mean it shouldn't be news?
No, it just seems uot of place next to the al QaQaa story. Even next to the "met with Security Council story" - and that one doesn't seem to have ANY traction.
I sure want to know which prof it is and what the school will do about it before I give anymore money to the alumni association. I understand why those without ties to *The Campus in the Sky* may not be that interested, but I sure am. In fact, I may get in touch with a friend who works there to find out the inside skinny.
Go for it, Polly, and let us know. My friend who told me this story today will keep me updated too and I will post as soon as I know anything.
I too have tried to call the school to hear what they say but alas... no answer. Very sketchy.
Shawn, it wouldn't surprise me. I'm sure they could give Bob Jensen a starring role.
Man, I miss seeing the bemused looks from those guys in the University Socialist Organization when I'd tell them "Sorry, I'm a Republican," every time they'd ask me to sign some asinine petition on the West Mall.
Or Max Cleaver. I had him for Principles of Macroeconomics. It was that class I had my first "Well, this sure as hell isn't high school." moment.
Saw the kid yesterday. He is filing charges. Says the press will write about it then.
Filing charges? For what? That professor clearly was taking necessary pre-emptive action under the Bush Doctrine.
I haven't seen the papers yet this morning. Did it make the front page nationwide?
The article is in the Durango Herald today. No word from my contact at the college. He must be ignoring me, but I'm sure he's just shaking his head over this one.
